Sessions Perjured Himself, Twice

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is supposed to be our country’s top law enforcer, but evidence appeared on Friday that Sessions perjured himself twice. The first time we already knew about. It was when Sessions was being confirmed, when under questioning Sessions said “I did not have communications with the Russians.” After confirmation, we found out […]

Suspension of Disbelief

© Tom Tomorrow Why do Donald Trump supporters believe anything he says? How can they believe such a flimsy story about meeting with the Russians? Even Trump jokes about his constant habit of lying. On Monday at an event at the White House, Trump said: We’ve signed more bills — and I’m talking about through […]

Does anyone else get the creeps as much as I do when watching Kellyanne Conway speak?

Smoking Guns and Treason

Trump and his campaign originally (repeatedly) denied that the Russians interfered in our presidential election, but under mounting evidence of Russian hacking, they eventually admitted that the Russians did interfere, but that there was no collusion between the Russians and Trump or his campaign. Well, that was a lie too. It turns out that last […]

Trump Embarrassed?

Yesterday, Donald Trump finally admitted that he didn’t make any recordings of his conversations with James Comey. This was an issue because Trump tried to threaten Comey by implicating that there might be such recordings. So there are two questions. First, why did Trump wait until yesterday? When Congress asked whether such recordings exist, why […]

The Cabinet of Honesty

© Tom Tomorrow I like the electoral college maps in the background. Will the voters in this country wake up someday and realize what an absolutely colossal mess they got us into? Or will they be so embarrassed that we will never admit their folly? Or asking the same question in a completely different way, […]

The Jeff Sessions

First, Conan O’Brien reveals how you can tell when Jeff Sessions may be stretching the truth: Second, Kate McKinnon reveals that her favorite person to impersonate is Sessions, and the facial trick that she uses to do it: My only question is whether Sessions is related to The Grinch.

Who Would Do That?

Seth Meyers hits the nail on the head. Not just about Donald Trump’s crazy behavior, but also who would believe anything Trump says? It is so easy to catch him in a lie, even obvious lies. Who cares if Trump made recordings of his conversations with James Comey (which he almost certainly did not)? You […]

Neophyte

© Kevin Siers Paul Ryan is defending Donald Trump’s attempts to interfere with FBI investigations (commonly called “obstruction of justice”) by claiming that Trump just didn’t know: Of course, there needs to be a degree of independence between [the Department of Justice], FBI and the White House, and a line of communication’s established. The president’s […]

I Believe

[Originally posted April 5, 2017 by Benjamin Wittes, editor-in-chief of Lawfare. But just as relevant two months later.] I believe the President. I have always believed him. I believed him when he said he wanted to ban Muslims from entering the United States. And I believe him now when he says his travel ban has […]

Where’s the Deal?

For a president who claims to be the best deal-maker, Donald Trump sure doesn’t deliver. Over and over again, when he is asked about a promised deal, Trump will say that it is coming in just “two weeks“. It is just a stalling tactic, because it rarely does arrive in that time frame. He said […]

The Fake News About Fake News!

© Tom Tomorrow Extra points if you can identify every last one of those lying journalists! Why anyone believes the news media would bother making up negative stories about Donald Trump, when it would just be so much easier to just reprint his tweets all day long (which they also do) is beyond me. After […]

This Modern Reality

© Tom Tomorrow Don’t you wish the Trump presidency was really just a computer simulation? Here’s evidence that it might be. Donald Trump is now claiming (and tweeting) two contradictory things: The leaks bedeviling his administration are coming from the “deep state” — career government workers inside the government, possibly inside the white house and […]

Body Slam Politics

Today there is an election in Montana to fill the congressional seat vacated by Ryan Zinke when he became Donald Trump’s Secretary of the Interior. Montana only has one congressperson, and the state (and thus that district) went for Trump by 20 percentage points. So the Republican candidate, Greg Gianforte, has been expected to win. […]

Trump Stops Winning

It seems like almost everyone is on to Donald Trump. He finally gave a speech that was designed to be presidential. And his speech in the Middle East was actually presidential. Except that virtually nobody believed a word of it. He said reasonable things about Muslims. But Muslims are not so stupid. As one Muslim […]
