Supreme Kangaroo Court

This would be funny if it were not so true: © Tom Tomorrow I truly wish something like this would happen: © Jen Sorensen Confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh will start a war to overturn Roe v. Wade. In fact, in anticipation of his confirmation, the war has already begun. Kavanaugh may claim that he believes […]

The president is collaborating with the enemy

The Trump administration is not fighting a war against climate change, it is collaborating with the enemy. And it is doing it in the sneakiest way possible. In July, the EPA made it easier to release carbon dioxide pollution from vehicle tailpipes. Then in August, made it easier for coal-fired power plants to release carbon […]

Why people talk to Bob Woodward

Stephen Colbert asks Bob Woodward a question (in detail) that lots of us have been curious about, which is “How in the world does Bob Woodward get people to spill their guts to him?” Continued:

Climate War!

The Republican party has lurched from claiming that climate change doesn’t exist (including Trump’s claim that it is a Chinese hoax), to admitting that it does exist but that it is not caused by humans, to just attacking it as a job killer. What they are really doing is “picking winners and losers” by trying […]

Jimmy Kimmel Knows Who Wrote NY Times Op-Ed on Trump

Apparently, Washington (and everywhere else) is going crazy trying to figure out who wrote the bombshell anonymous op-ed published in the NY Times.

The Internal Resistance

The NY Times just published an article by a senior Trump administration official titled “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration“. The name of the author was withheld (for obvious reasons), but is known to the newspaper. The article echos what Bob Woodward is saying about the administration in his upcoming book. […]

The Best People? Hah!

When Donald Trump was running for president, he promised that he would “surround myself only with the best and most serious people”. Hilariously, he even said that they would be “top-of-the-line professionals.” But let’s look at the people that Trump with whom has actually surrounded himself. And I’m not going to count porn stars and […]

Captains Deserting a Sinking Ship?

Donald Trump has managed to do something that no other Republican president in recent history has done. He has alienated the captains of industry. The presidential Strategic and Policy Forum decided to disband themselves. This group included CEOs from GM, JP Morgan Chase, Wal-Mart, Blackstone, PepsiCo, IBM, Ernst & Young, and GE (among others). The […]

Trump: Pants on Fire

Donald Trump makes statements that earn him a “Pants on Fire” rating from PolitiFact 52 times more often than Barack Obama did while he was president. To put this in perspective, that means that Trump tells as many obvious, egregious, ridiculous lies in one week as Obama did in a whole year of his presidency. […]

Ringing in His Ears?

© Tom Tomorrow I’m still not sure if Donald Trump even believes half the stupid lies he tells. And now of course, Trump has become a “madman with nuclear weapons“, threatening to unleash “fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before” against North Korea. Considering that the […]

Spreading Lies

Donald Trump not only lies constantly, he even tries to convince other world leaders to lie for him. But it looks like this is (finally!) catching up with him. The latest polls show that even among his base, support for Trump is starting to crumble. What’s really ironic is that Trump’s approval rating is sinking […]

Wanted: Another Failure to Communicate

© Jack Ohman Unfortunately, this comic left off the current leading candidate for the position of White House communications director, which of course would be Donald Trump himself. Trump obviously wants the job. In fact, it seems to be the only job he actually likes and spends any of his time at. Negotiating treaties? Boring. […]

Tracking Russian Tweets

An interesting new web site tracks 600 Twitter accounts “linked to Russian influence activities online”. This is very interesting because while Russian efforts to spread disinformation has been well documented, until now there was no way to see what “fake news” they were trying to promote. The site, called “Hamilton 68” after the 68th edition […]

The Pardonizer in Chief

© Tom Tomorrow I suspect that sometime in the near future, Donald Trump is going to try to pardon someone he shouldn’t, and all hell will break loose. My only question is whether when that happens, will the Republicans stand up to Trump, or will they roll over?
