Treason!

I have long noticed a disturbing pattern in Donald Trump’s behavior — he often accuses others of doing bad things of which he himself is guilty. And he does it even if we don’t yet know that he is doing those bad things. Maybe it is his way of getting ahead of a story, so […]

No Responsibility

The state of Missouri decided to “reopen for business” even though the number of cases is increasing. In fact, they are now setting record highs for new cases of COVID-19. At a press briefing on Tuesday, the Republican governor was asked if he “felt guilty” for relaxing restrictions in the state during a coronavirus spike. […]

His Own Words

No, not Trump’s words. The group Republican Voters Against Trump has released a new ad using only the words of South Carolina Republican senator Lindsey Graham to attack Donald Trump and praise Joe Biden. The ad is being run in both South and North Carolina, and also on Fox News in DC (likely to poke […]

This is a joke, right?

Actually, no. These are actually things that Donald Trump, the master of racist dog whistles and champion of white supremacists, said at an event about race and policing, which took place in a largely white megachurch in an upper class part of Dallas. President Trump says America will be done with “bigotry and prejudice” before […]

PR

Donald Trump treats pretty much everything as a PR problem. Why bother to actually, you know, govern? If there is bad news, he brands it as “fake news”, uses whataboutism, and attacks the source. If there is no good news, he just makes crap up and repeats it so much that at least some people […]

Winning Rant

I believe that this righteous rant from Kimberly Jones, titled “How Can We Win”, is the most powerful I have ever posted. Please watch it, and remember to go to the YouTube page and vote it up. Hearing her words, I am reminded of the American Revolution. Let me explain. Here are the major things […]

More Lies

This isn’t really news, but Donald Trump continues to lie about just about everything. First, Trump’s former defense secretary Jim Mattis wrote an article highly critical of Trump, so of course our Tweeter-in-chief attacked back, claiming that he had fired Mattis (and disparaging him). But John Kelly, who was Trump’s White House chief of staff […]

Death by Partisanship

In Pennsylvania, the Republican dominated state legislature was trying to pass laws to open up the state. They were telling everyone it was safe, and that COVID-19 wasn’t a threat. What they weren’t telling anyone was that at least one of them had already tested positive for the disease. The Republican caucus knew, and they […]

The Wrong Signal?

Donald Trump seems to be happy to represent himself as a wartime president, despite somehow thinking that a good thing for the president to do during this “war” is play golf. Even if you ignore the “war” rhetoric, when Barack Obama was president Trump attacked him (more than once) for playing golf during the Ebola […]

Burying your head in the sand

Donald Trump says that widespread coronavirus testing is “overrated“. This, despite the fact that he and other administration officials are being tested regularly. But here’s what is really weird. Trump added: We have more cases than anybody in the world, but why? Because we do more testing. When you test, you have a case. When […]

Obamagate?

Donald Trump is trying to push a new scandal, which he calls “Obamagate”. There’s just one problem. Even Trump can’t say what the crime is. When asked by a Washington Post reporter, Trump said “It’s been going on for a long time. It’s been going on from before I even got elected. And it’s a […]

What do you get when you cross a penis and a potato?

A dictator (dick-tater, get it?). What does this have to do with politics? Today’s NPR headline says it all: Michael Flynn Pleaded Guilty. Why Is The Justice Department Dropping The Charges? In its usual, over-polite way, NPR tries to answer the question. But the real answer is obvious. Because Donald Trump told Bill Barr to […]

Legislative Hypocrisy

The Louisiana legislature just voted to restrict access to mail-in ballots in their primary, which was already delayed because of the coronavirus. In fact, some GOP members tried to block the measure because they claimed that it still gave too much access to mail-in voting. Their reasons? As usual, the Republicans claimed that voting by […]

Being Owned

Donald Trump campaigns by attacking his opponents. He did it in 2016 against Hillary Clinton. Now in 2020, the need is even more dire, because he can’t campaign by taking credit for a good economy anymore. So he is doing what he always does, throwing out attacks constantly to see which ones stick (in other […]

Killer Quote

I’m dying here… It’s amazing how much people want to get to work, they just — they’re dying to get back to work. — Sean Hannity
