Dumb as a Rock

Who hires people like this? © Nick Anderson We did! We hired Donald Trump. And he hired a bunch of crooks and liars, just like himself. If you really want to see someone as dumb as a rock, consider that Trump decided to hold a negotiating session on live TV with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck […]

More than a Laughing Matter?

It sure looks like Donald Trump fell into a trap set by Robert Mueller. But that won’t stop Trump from continuing to lie over and over, digging his legal grave even deeper. I love how Don Lemon can’t stop laughing about the situation. It is pretty funny that the thing that will probably bring Trump […]

Double Edged Sword?

Conservative media are unfailing boosters of Donald Trump and his administration, but this can also pose a significant (and surprising) risk. The problem is that Trump and his close advisors have become so comfortable with conservative media, that they are starting to say things that are extremely damaging. We had another example of it this […]

Trouble keeping his lies straight?

“I can tell you Matt Whitaker’s a great guy. I mean, I know Matt Whitaker.” – Donald Trump last month. “I don’t know Matt Whitaker.” – Donald Trump yesterday, trying to distance himself from the new Attorney General he just put in charge of the Justice Department. I think you can tell how bad a […]

Fired Up

The Camp Fire in northern California is now the most destructive fire in California history. With nine people already found burned to death, Donald Trump wasted no time rubbing salt in the wounds by threatening to cut off Federal aid to fight the fires: There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest […]

The Fabulous Falsehoods!

From electoral-vote.com, talking about how Donald Trump seems to be going for a all-time world record in lying: For the first year of his presidency, he was averaging about five lies a day, and in the second year that slowly crept up to about 7.5 a day. In October, though, his average jumped to a […]

A nation of immigrants

Stephen Colbert is on a roll. And Donald Trump is out of control.

Birthright Citizenship

Yesterday, Donald Trump said he was going to end birthright citizenship, which is the right of people born on US soil to become US citizens. Trump claims he can do this with an executive order. Most of the response to this concentrated on pointing out that you can’t just overrule the 14th amendment to the […]

Speaking Truth to Lies

Yes it is true. Donald Trump, who says that Hillary Clinton should go to jail because she used a supposedly unsecured email server, is using an unsecured iPhone, and there is evidence that Chinese and Russian spies are listening in on his phone calls. Even crazier, if you listen to what Trump is saying about […]

Promises, Promises

On Saturday, Donald Trump told reporters in Nevada that he was working with Republican congressional leaders on “a very major tax cut for middle-income people” to be announced in early November or just before November. In other words, right before the midterm election. There’s just a couple of big problems. Congress is not even in […]

Congenital Falsehoods

“I like the Saudis; they are very nice. I make a lot of money with them. They buy all sorts of my stuff — all kinds of toys from Trump. They pay me millions and hundreds of millions.” — Donald Trump, quoted by CNN at a July 2015 campaign rally. “For the record, I have […]

No Buddies Care

Even Brett Kavanaugh’s drinking buddies say that he lied under oath when he claimed that he never drank to the point of forgetting what he was doing. They swear that they saw him do just that on multiple occasions. The point is that this isn’t about what Kavanaugh did when he was younger. This is […]

The SC solution

Benjamin Wittes (the editor in chief of Lawfare and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution) published an excellent article in The Atlantic titled “I Know Brett Kavanaugh, but I Wouldn’t Confirm Him“. I agree with everything Wittes says. He gives more than one strong reason why Kavanaugh should not be confirmed. He does this without […]

Kavanaugh

John Oliver asks all the right questions. For example, why are the Republicans so desperate to put Judge Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court? Couldn’t they find someone who is a little less of an asshole? The interesting thing to me when I watch video of Kavanaugh is that he seems to be acting. I don’t […]

Rumor Control

Sometimes the news just writes itself. On Friday, FEMA tweeted this message: We have created a rumor control page for Hurricane #Florence that will be updated regularly. During disasters, it’s critical to avoid spreading false information. Always check with official sources before sharing. https://t.co/PAjGQZJ1Nt pic.twitter.com/z4L0r1YjAT — FEMA (@fema) September 12, 2018 It was retweeted by […]
