The Noise Machine

© Ruben Bolling I don’t know if it is intentional or just a byproduct of his need for constant attention, but Donald Trump has been extremely successful at manipulating the 24 hour news cycle. Not only dominating the day’s conversation, but making us forget about everything from yesterday and before. Most frighteningly, hiding (with the […]

Nepotism

[Satire from Andy Borowitz] JARED KUSHNER CALLS KIM JONG-UN “TOTALLY UNQUALIFIED PERSON” WHO GOT JOB ONLY THROUGH NEPOTISM Offering a stunningly blunt appraisal of the North Korean leader, Jared Kushner said on Tuesday that Kim Jong-un was a “totally unqualified person” who attained his position of power only through nepotism. “Here you have a guy […]

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, […]

Unhappy Easter Bunny

The White House Easter bunny apologizes for “passing over” the Jews. Ironically, ten years ago Sean Spicer actually did dress up as the Easter bunny at the White House, with George W and Laura Bush. At the time, Spicer was working in the office of the US Trade Representative. UPDATE: Notice how uncomfortable Spicer is […]

As Real as Trump

© David Horsey Hey, why not just claim victory and move on? After all, most people didn’t believe Donald Trump when he (over and over and over again) claimed that he would build a wall and Mexico would pay for it. And if someone was stupid enough to believe that, then they would probably believe […]

Keeping Secrets

Three-quarters of Americans say that Donald Trump should release his tax returns. Over a million people signed a White House petition demanding the immediate release of of his returns. Even Donald Trump himself once said “If I decide to run for office, I’ll produce my tax returns. Absolutely. I would love to do that.” But […]

Trump Diaries

© Tom Tomorrow Indeed, Donald Trump must be very unhappy. His approval rating has dropped to 36%, the lowest of his young presidency. And more questionable Russian connections keep appearing. The latest news is that Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner met with the chairman of the Russian state development bank after the election but before Trump […]

Make America Greater

The New Yorker has a must-read article about health care. If you can, go read it now. Their point is that conseratives are treating health care as if it is just another business. A way to make a profit. But health care is not about economics, in fact, it is actually anything but. Health care […]

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 […]

When in Doubt, Lie

Pretty much every day or so a new tie between the Trump campaign and the Russians appears. Documents from a lawmaker in the Ukraine link Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort with money laundering for Viktor Yanukovych, the deposed former Ukrainian president who was propped up by Moscow and is now wanted on corruption […]

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 […]
