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

More Proof of Trump Lies About Russia

Last May, when Lord Donny decided to fire James Comey as FBI Director, we were given all sorts of ultimately phony reasons why. Hell, at one point, Trump himself said it was because of how Comey had treated “Crooked Hillary.” This was a “president” who was deep into full damage-control

Quinnipiac Poll: Trump is an Embarrassment

Today, Quinnipiac University released a poll that, in any other White House would be grounds for major embarrassment. Start with the fact that, while 90 percent of those polled think it’s important that a president set a really good example and be a role model for children, more than two-thirds

Trump is Not Ignorant. He’s Stupid.

I am getting really tired of people on all sides attributing Donald Trump’s behavior to “ignorance.” I can handle ignorance; everyone is ignorant about certain things. For example, if an engineer or a physicist were to ask me difficult questions about those subjects, I would be ignorant and I would

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

Why Don’t More Journalists Do This?

I am almost halfway through Michael Wolff’s blockbuster book, “Fire & Fury,” and the first thing I will tell you is, it’s not that well-written. Of course, given that he was writing about a White House full of cronies, sycophants and lamebrains, how could he write it so it sounded

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.

Lord Donny on Iran: What a Joke

It is once again clear that Lord Donny of Trump has no concept of his job, even after nearly a year. Worse, his lack of knowledge doesn’t stop him from saying ignorant things to people in other countries. Last night, he Tweeted the following about Iran: Many reports of peaceful

What’s Trump’s Deal? It’s Simple, Really

A lot of people seem confused as to what Donald Trump is doing with all his public proclamations, Tweets and everything else. Really, it is actually quite easy to figure out. He has been doing this since the first day he rode down the escalator to his first speech. Of

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
