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 […]

Hallelujah!

It is the end of the TV season for Saturday Night Live. When the show resumes, will Alec Baldwin have a job playing Donald Trump as president? Or could this mark the swan song for Trump as well?

Saturday Night Humor

This weekend was the final episode of Saturday Night Live of the current TV season, and the Weekend Update was pretty hilarious!

Life Imitates Art

© Ruben Bolling This will be much funnier to you if you are a fan of Calvin and Hobbes. I miss Bill Watterson. And as one person commented about this strip, “ironically, Calvin has more maturity than our current sitting p(R)esident.”

Leaker in Chief

© Adam Zyglis When I saw this comic, I mistakenly read the third word as “Orifice” instead of “Office”. Donald Trump is still complaining bitterly about all the leaks in his administration, and yet he seems to be as guilty as anyone.

As I say, I do

It seems like almost everything Donald Trump complains about, he himself is guilty of. Here is a tweet from 2012 that is yet another example: Well, we got an independent investigation anyway, but the Justice Department had to do it behind the back of the White House. Ironically, everyone on both sides of the aisle […]

Impeachable Offenses?

© Jen Sorensen At this point, Donald Trump has screwed up so badly that it will make it next to impossible for the Republicans to pass any of their more radical agenda like repealing the ACA, privatizing Medicare, further widening the gap between wealthy and poor by rewriting the tax code, or destroying the environment.

Projections

Washington DC artist Robin Bell projected animated anti-Trump messages on the Trump International Hotel in DC, including “emoluments welcome here” and “pay Trump bribes here”. The messages protest the fact that Trump gains financially from the hotel, which makes money from foreign governments. The emoluments clause of the constitution prohibits government officials from making money […]

Getting Attention

© Joel Pett As Donald Trump lurches from one fiasco to another, one has to wonder if his staunchest supporters will ever wake up. And that includes congressional Republicans, most of whom keep either defending Trump or at the very least are keeping their mouths shut.

Negotiating Failure

It should be obvious to anyone that Donald Trump’s claims to be a skilled negotiator are completely hollow (that’s a euphemism for “lie”). He isn’t even very good at being a bully. His entire history of negotiating is full of examples where he belligerently refused to settle a lawsuit… and then settled. Let’s concentrate at […]

100 WTFs

Rolling Stone has put together a list of 100 WTF moments during the first 100 days of the Trump presidency. I guess they had to, because it is difficult to find 100 achievements of Donald Trump, a president that they point out has accomplished less than William Henry Harrison, who died 31 days into his […]

First 100 Days

Today is the 100th day of Trump’s presidency. I wouldn’t pay that much attention to the first hundred days of any presidency, except that Donald Trump keeps talking about it. First he kept promising all the things he would positively, definitely do in the first 100 days of his presidency (none of which he has […]

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 […]
