The GOP Budget Priorities Show Why They Can’t Govern

This is getting ridiculous. Republicans are not only cruel bullies, they are also irretrievably stupid. The more we read about the Trump budget, the more absurd the whole thing looks. And please don’t let anyone say it’s all Trump’s doing because we all know better. First of all, Donny doesn’t

The Trump Infrastructure Fraud

How do I put this? Lord Donny is finally right about something; this country needs a strong push toward greater infrastructure. He’s been hollering about it for almost three years now, and he’s not wrong; if we’re to compete in the world, we have to make a massive investment in

Trump and the GOP: Making China Great Again

Donald Trump likes to brag about how great the economy has been for the last year. Some of the things he takes credit for are just plain bizarre. For example, there are these Tweets from a couple days ago: More great news as a result of historical Tax Cuts and

Trump’s the Opposite of a “Successful Businessman”

Over the weekend, I responded to one of Lord Donny’s Tweets, in which he bragged on himself as a “VERY successful businessman.” I countered by saying he is anything but a “successful businessman.” In fact, the myth of “The Donald” could very well be one of the most exaggerated legends

Okay, It’s Time for Donny to Go

There has been a lot of talk about the 25th Amendment and the fact that Lord Donny Trump is batshit crazy enough that it should have been invoked by now. The problem is, we are directing our ire at Trump himself, when we should be directing it at the Republican

The Open Corruption of Donald J. Trump

One of the most underreported stories of the Trump era has to be Lord Donny’s complete abolition of any sort of decorum when it comes to the federal government. It’s not just the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution; there are violations of that, but there is a whole lot more.

Trump Fails Daily

Just some random thoughts, to get myself back into crap cutting mode. These are mostly reflections on stories from the last couple days. Donny on Markets For the last few months, Lord Donny has been bragging on the stock market, as if the reason the market is flying high is

This is Trump.

One reason the “false equivalence” people on the Bernie left piss me off so much is because their rhetoric just doesn’t match reality. The funny thing is, they seem to adopt the same sort of “alternate reality” that only they know. If that seems familiar, it’s because it’s the same

No, Pundits, This “Presidency” is Over. Period.

For all intents and purposes, the Lord Donny “presidency” is over. The only thing left to do is the formality of getting rid of him bodily. He began the week by making a policy speech on Afghanistan that was notable only because Lord Donny showed that he was able to

The Press Conference That Should Spell Donny’s Doom

If you watched any of Trump’s press conference yesterday, you learned two things. You learned why his people don’t normally allow him to hold press conferences – he really sucks at it – and you also learned that Donald J. Trump is within a hair’s breadth of just plain quitting.

Why Trump Waited So Long and Still Blew It

All weekend, Lord Donny barely Tweeted. He claimed to be in meetings all day, but we all know he was probably playing golf. We know this because he doesn’t attend many meetings and when it rains enough to wash out a golf game, he takes to Twitter to insult people,

The Problem Isn’t Trump, but the Entire GOP

You know, in the last few days, I have caught myself calling the Republican healthcare bills, “Trumpcare.” I have done this numerous times. I apologize. See, here’s the thing. It should be called “GOPCare.” This is a Republican idea that Lord Donny hasn’t even read. He only feels like he

Trump and the London Terror Response

First of all, my heart goes out to the people of London this morning, after a series of attacks by assholes who claim affinity with extremists last night.  As of this morning, seven were killed and about 50 or so were injured. It’s a tragedy, to be sure. British PM

Stick Your Griffin Fake Outrage Up Your…

I know I discussed this issue from one angle yesterday,, in which I didn’t talk about Trump at all. But there’s another angle to this that has everything to do with Trump. If you expect people to be outraged by Kathy Griffin’s severed head photo shoot – easily the most

Pulling Out of the Paris Accords is Stupid. Here’s Why.

The more I examine the Trump approach to climate change, which is to deny its existence and then pull out of a treaty in which President Obama and his people worked for years to get 190 countries to agree on, the more it looks like Lord Donny is doing two
