Wrong-Way Trump

© Jack Ohman Last week, Donald Trump claimed that he ordered an American aircraft carrier into the Sea of Japan to act as a deterrent to North Korea. In fact, he told Fox News “We’re sending an armada”. Naturally, that was a lie. The aircraft carrier in question was actually sailing in the opposite direction. […]

Safety First!

© Lee Judge Donald Trump just can’t stay away from Twitter. On April 15th in honor of tax day, protests were held all across the US (and in several other countries) to encourage Trump to release his tax returns. Once upon a time, Trump promised he would release his tax returns once he was elected, […]

Burning the Truth

© Tom Tomorrow I don’t think anyone believes anything Sean Spicer says any more. But what’s really ironic about this is that in order to support Trump, people have to be willing to not believe anything Spicer, Trump, or anyone else in his administration says. Or else, they have to just pick and choose what […]

Settling for a Loser

In a presidential debate a year ago, when taunted about the Trump University fraud case, Trump flatly stated “I don’t settle cases. I don’t do it because that’s why I don’t get sued very often, because I don’t settle, unlike a lot of other people. You know what, let’s see what happens in court.” Of […]

Do you have regrets yet?

I’m not a huge fan of Bill Maher, but this one is actually pretty funny. Will Trump voters realize that they have been conned? And speaking of being conned, consider the case of the Beristains. Roberto Beristain is a respected businessman who owns a popular restaurant, creates jobs, is a well-loved citizen of his town […]

The Reality Show Just Got Weirder

I have to hand it to Donald Trump, he has put together a reality show as president that is as hard to look away from as a train wreck. Wednesday, Time magazine published an almost verbatim short interview with Trump. The topic is about lying and Trump’s credibility (or, lack thereof). Trump agreeing to this […]

Donald Trumped

Yesterday, FBI Director James Comey testified under oath to Congress two things. First, that there is no evidence to support Donald Trump’s claim that Obama had Donald Trump wiretapped during the presidential campaign. Or, to put that in plain English, Trump lied, and continues to repeatedly lie (since he is allergic to apologizing — or […]

Russian to Judgement

© Tom Tomorrow Concerns about an email server seem almost quaint now, don’t they? But what is missing from this comic is Trump’s cozying up to the Russians, which the Republican-controlled Congress refuses to investigate. Here’s a timeline presenting Everything We Know About Trumpland’s Ties To Russia. It is so amazingly full of smoking guns, […]

Kettle, Meet Pot

We now know that Vice President Mike Pence routinely used an AOL email account to conduct state business when he was governor of Indiana. Seriously. Including during the campaign when he was repeatedly attacking Hillary Clinton for not using a government email account. But wait, there is a difference. While there is no evidence that […]

A Day Without Lies!

Amazingly, Donald Trump just made it through an entire day without lying: Donald Trump has been president for 41 days, and he finally put up a goose egg: no factual errors or misleading statements for a full day, midnight to midnight, according to The Washington Post’s great Fact Checkers, Glenn Kessler and Michelle Ye Hee […]

Nobody Knows

Nobody knows the reason Trump needs to lie and say stupid things so much.

Trump’s Bizarre Press Conference

I’m sure most people have heard about Trump’s first solo press conference on Thursday, but Seth Meyers has a good take on it: At what point does it become too painful for Trump supporters to hear what keeps coming out of his mouth. Or have they already stopped listening?

Trump vs Truth

If you have ever wondered how people can support Donald Trump, when he lies constantly, then you have to watch this video from John Oliver: The problem is a combination of a propaganda-like appeal to emotions, reinforced by a fake news industry. Note that this kind of non-rational belief is not confined to conservatives. For […]

Dan Rather on the Latest Trump Scandal

[Posted to Facebook by Dan Rather] Watergate is the biggest political scandal of my lifetime, until maybe now. It was the closest we came to a debilitating Constitutional crisis, until maybe now. On a 10 scale of armageddon for our form of government, I would put Watergate at a 9. This Russia scandal is currently […]
