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 […]

Keeping us Safe?

© Ruben Bolling Humans are really bad at evaluating risks. We are scared to death of terrorists, but not of the things that are far more likely to kill us. Just Wednesday, Donald Trump announced that he is rolling back fuel economy standards that were put in place under Obama. And he has not ruled […]

What’s At Steak?

Donald Trump’s most die-hard fans didn’t blink at his “locker-room talk” about grabbing pussy. They didn’t seem to mind his “alternative facts” when he lied to them. But now he seems to have finally angered them. A few weeks ago, the Independent Journal Review reported that Donald Trump had dinner at the Trump Hotel in […]

Leaker Trump Condemns Leaks

When I read the news yesterday that two pages of Donald Trump’s 2005 tax return were sent to reporter David Cay Johnston and shown on Rachel Maddow’s show on MSNBC, I immediately wondered if this was a false flag operation. The whole thing was just too contrived. Especially when the White House immediately verified the […]

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, […]

Fiction

The Washington Post lists 19 times that Donald Trump declared that the government unemployment numbers are fake. Starting in Sept 2012, when he called them “phony numbers”, and then a month later when he called them “a complete fraud”. In 2014, he said “Unemployment is a totally phony number.” A year later Trump graced us […]

Emoluments

The word is out that the NY Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman, is looking into Donald Trump’s violations of the emoluments clause of the constitution (the clause that says that the president may not receive gifts or other personal favors from foreign governments). To do this, they need public support. Apparently, in this case it doesn’t […]

Don’t Laugh, He’s the President

The look on Paul Ryan’s face at the end of this video is priceless. It also looks like Sarah Huckabee Sanders is trying to compete with Kellyanne Conway in the creative language department. And by “creative language” I mean “lying artfully”.

Baby Man!

© Tom Tomorrow Here’s a good theory about what is going on: It is evident that Trump has poor control of his emotions. This makes some sense; he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and has had a life full of wives, business partners, employees, television co-stars, and the like kowtowing to […]

Just Can’t Let it Go?

Donald Trump was so insistent that the crowds at his inauguration were the largest since Reagan (when they were almost certainly the smallest since Reagan) that he ordered the National Park Service to produce the photos that they had taken of the inauguration. Apparently, Trump actually believed that the images would prove the media lied […]

Russian Roulette

The list of people connected to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign or to his administration that were in frequent communication with the Russians just keeps growing longer. Remember Paul Manafort, who actually worked for pro-Russian groups and then became Trump’s campaign manager? He was forced out because of that. Then there is Michael Flynn, Trump’s national […]

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 […]
