Let the Gaslighting Commence: Covington Catholic High School Edition

Let the Gaslighting Commence: Covington Catholic High School Edition

Aaaaand, the gaslighting around the Covington Catholic High School controversy has begun. “He wasn’t smirking…he was nervous.” “He was frightened…that man was right in his face!” “There were black Muslims saying awful things to those boys!” “The press is distorting the narrative because of their hatred for Trump!” “Just because those boys were wearing MAGA hats doesn’t mean they were […]

The Face of Trump’s America

The Face of Trump’s America

If he was just a high school kid who had come face-to-face with an elderly man chanting and banging on a drum, maybe I see confusion, nervousness, and teen awkwardness. As a member of an all-male, overwhelmingly-white group of teenaged boys on a school-sanctioned field trip to protest women’s right to choose, I start seeing a mix of testosterone, adolescent […]

SECURE THE BORDER! BUILD A WALL! AND BOB WILL PAY FOR IT!

SECURE THE BORDER! BUILD A WALL! AND BOB WILL PAY FOR IT!

So, I may not have thought this out… I promised my wife that I’d build a wall around our vegetable garden. She didn’t seem as happy as I thought she’d be. “We don’t need a wall,” she said. “A wall won’t keep the critters out–they’ll just tunnel underneath and still eat my lettuce! And the birds will still swoop down […]

Trump is a loser and the emergency is that he will never accept this

Trump is a loser and the emergency is that he will never accept this

This is racist crisis that we always expected and Trump needs Before James Comey decided to make Donald Trump president, the GOP nominee’s refusal to say he would concede if defeated occupied much of our political conversation in the closing month of the 2016 election. Since his party suffered its biggest House losses since Watergate, this fear has proven correct. […]

We Told You…

We Told You…

I’m not here for the impending barrage of heartfelt stories about Trump voters who have now “seen the light,” and suddenly realize that his tax cuts, and tariffs, and gutting of regulations, and pulling out of trade deals around the globe, and manipulation of the SEC and stock market, and threats against judges, and attacks on the press, and government […]

A little “locker room talk” from a Democrat has Republicans’ ladies undergarments all in a twist

A little “locker room talk” from a Democrat has Republicans’ ladies undergarments all in a twist

Rashida Tlaib had the audacity to invoke what Dan Savage has been saying for two years with his hashtag #ITMFA (“Impeach the motherfucker already”) when she made comments to a group of MoveOn activists yesterday and, to hear the Republicans’ response to it, you’d think she had said it during the half-time show at the Superbowl. “People love you. And […]

UPDATED: Vice President Mike Pence invites Christian “rabbi” formerly of Jews for Jesus to give the invocation during Michigan campaign stop

UPDATED: Vice President Mike Pence invites Christian “rabbi” formerly of Jews for Jesus to give the invocation during Michigan campaign stop

I don’t know how to describe this exactly. It may be the most insulting thing anyone in the Trump administration or campaign has done to Jewish Americans. Mike Pence invited “Rabbi” Loren Jacobs to give the invocation at his Michigan campaign stop today. Jacobs is actually a Christian who leads a group who call themselves Messianic Jews. He spent eight […]

BREAKING: “Trump Is A Snob Who Secretly Despises His Supporters,” and other surprises

And the guy who opens up a fake “university” and has the chutzpah to name it after himself and slap his name over the door in giant gold letters isn’t a selfless advocate for continuing education who is dedicated to sharing his knowledge of the business world with his “students”–he’s nothing more than a common grifter running an elaborate, audacious […]

Foreign interference the new norm?

Foreign interference the new norm?

Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton has recently eliminated the cybersecurity coordinator position within the National Security Council. This was one of the top positions within the organization and Bolton’s reasoning was that the lower level officials would be more than capable of handling cybersecurity issues. In fact, “Mr. Bolton has talked about ‘streamlining’ the N.S.C., and so far that appears […]

Trump holds a “Pledge to Workers” event with no workers and LOTS of anti-labor shills and corporate lobbyists

Trump holds a “Pledge to Workers” event with no workers and LOTS of anti-labor shills and corporate lobbyists

In 2016, Donald Trump got around 37% of the vote from members of labor unions. He actually out-performed Mitt Romney in this regard suggesting that his faux pro-worker rhetoric hit its mark. Since then, he’s continued his attempts to appease union workers and convince them — despite a preponderance of evidence to the contrary — that he is on THEIR […]
