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 …

A Note of Sanity on Healthcare

Let’s make this quick. I’m writing a longer piece about this phenomenon, but we really have to stop reacting to anything and everything we see and hear from Republicans, as if everything they do is immediately tragic and will destroy the very thread of existence. It does no one any …

Why Churches Should Pay Taxes

Last night, Lord Donny posted the following Tweet: Churches in Texas should be entitled to reimbursement from FEMA Relief Funds for helping victims of Hurricane Harvey (just like others). — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 9, 2017 As you can probably imagine, the responses from his closest followers was overwhelmingly …

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, …

We Can Do This, You Know… And We Have To

I find myself laughing at all of the breathless punditry, asking if (name of someone in the Trump Administration) has broken the law by (citation of something specific. The implied hope is that someone will do something to make it so that Lord Donny will be impeached and removed. There …

The Importance of Truth and Facts

I”We the people” are actually in charge of this country. I just thought it was time someone pointed it out because many of us seem to have forgotten. We allowed an asshole and all of his asshole friends to be elected president through our benign neglect of the democratic process. …

Being a “Political Junkie” is a Luxury

For nearly 250 years now, we have lived in one of the most stable democracies in world history. We are still that, but there are signs that such stability may be in trouble. And the reason for that is actually our fault, as Americans. I mean, it is tempting to …

The Worst First 100 EVER

The first problem with writing up an assessment of the first 100 days of the Trump fiasco comes with trying to decide where to start. Many pundits have characterized the goings-on in the Lord Donny regime as something resembling an out-of-control tennis ball machine, since so much is coming at …

The Cluster-Trump

Do your realize that it will take another week to go past the one-month mark in the Lord Donny reign? It’s barely over three weeks and he’s already taken two vacation weekends. I mean, even though he excoriated President Obama for his golf outings, he’s actually poised to out-do Obama’s …

The Importance of Intelligence – Updated

One of the hallmarks of the Republican ideology comes with the ridiculous notion that they alone can keep us safe. Of course, the concept is insane and we know that, but I’m not sure it’s ever been more ridiculous that it is right now. Think about it. Not a day …

The Toddler in Chief

As many already know, I am attempting to document everything that Lord Donny does or causes to be done from his high perch at the top of the Executive Branch of the federal government. It’s really hard to keep up. I still have a lot of stuff to add from …

Lord Donny is Getting People Killed, Already

This is what happens when we allow the “Fuck You Caucus” to have their way. I am in no way a violent person. The last time I was in a physical fight was when I was 11. I beat the living crap out of the school bully then and, while …

The Lord Donny Chronicles: Two Weeks in and WTF!

As I sit here at this moment, it has been exactly two weeks since an excellent president left the White House and was replaced by an authoritarian nightmare. All I can think is, it’s really difficult to believe it’s only been two weeks. Just 206 more weeks to go, worst …

Yes We Can, Pro Lefties – and We Have To

As you have probably figured out, I am tired of lefty “political junkies” telling me what we can’t do because “the GOP won’t ever go along” or “voters didn’t do X before, so there’s no reason to expect them to do it now.” You know, silly shit like that. I …

STFU, Donny

I have been saying this for almost two years now, but Lord Donny Drumpf has two serious problems. (I know what you’re thinking; he has more problems than that. I’m just talking about problems as they relate to the presidency, for now.) Both of them are actually common problems among …

The Toddler-in-Chief Makes Us Less Safe

On Friday, which, quite ironically, just happened to be Holocaust Remembrance Day, Lord Donny decided that was the perfect time to go against everything the country he now represents around the world stands for.  He chose that day to sign an order that suspends all refugee admissions for 120 days …

Lord Donny Hires a Twitter Troll to “Fix Democracy”

As noted earlier this week, Lord Donny Drumpf has spent an inordinate amount of time trying to convince us that voter fraud is an actual thing and he has spent most of his first week trying to convince us that he will, by gum, get to the bottom of the …

The Lord Donny Chronicles: Get a Grip, It’s Gonna Be Bumpy

Seriously, folks, everyone is going to have to get a grip. It seems as if half the progressive movement is on a roller coaster that has come off the tracks and it’s about to fly off the next incline into a nearby lake. Lord Donny is a joke, to be …
