Trump’s Wall Versus “The Wall”

Trump’s chief of staff, General Kelly, described Trump’s position on the border wall as having “evolved” since his campaign, particularly with regard to whether a 2,000-mile continuous wall is necessary or possible. Trump took to Twitter to shoot down this “evolution” narrative — and then restated (with qualification and nuance) his old claims about the wall and who will pay for it. Right...

On Defending Trump’s Vulgarity

The easiest defense one may offer for President Trump’s crude, idiotic, vulgar, ignorant, disrespectful, expletive-infested, “Who-taught-you-that-word-Johnny?” style of communication — his “grab ’em by the p—-,” “s—hole countries” manner of self-expression (and such language really does express Trump’s self quite well) — is the classic, “Oh, come on, we all talk like that behind closed doors. What’s the big deal?” This defense has...

Trump: A Lying Moron You Can Believe In

One day, Trump says DACA is a “bill of love,” he’ll sign anything Schumer and Feinstein put on his desk, and there will not be a real wall. His idolaters scream “treason.” On Thursday, Trump promises to “build a Great Wall” and complains about immigrants from the “s—hole countries” of Africa and the Caribbean. The cult is in heaven again. In other words,...

Breaking: Pop Star Uses Own Brain!

Wonders never cease. In this era in which pop culture is little more than a propaganda arm of the progressive neo-Marxist identity politics elite, and pop icons little more than half-conscious prostitutes for global communism — i.e., the basest “capitalist pigs” of all time — the “entertainment industry” is the last place one should ever expect to hear truth spoken to power. Well,...

Shocker: Trump Meant What He Said (Before 2016)

Trump is committed to an immigration “bill of love” for the Dreamers, which is supposedly also going to include funding for his infamous wall. And what does this “deal” teach us? That Trump is not using DACA to get the wall. He is using the wall to get DACA. He has been all along. His tough guy anti-immigrant ruse during the primaries was...

Trump’s Hinges Fall Off

Indignation, as I have recently noted in another context, is the soul’s rebellion against uncomfortable questions about itself. But indignation retains a semblance of rationality (or at least rationalization) at its core. One step beyond indignation lies the even more revealing spectacle of a man responding to criticisms that touch sensitive nerves by melting down into hysterics. Here, then, is a Trump tweet...

Is Donald Trump Bill Clinton?

As Trump’s admirers inundated us with their year-end “Wishlist fulfilled!” declarations last week, detailing (without differentiation) the accomplishments, pending accomplishments, or dubious rhetorical “accomplishments” of his first year, I have begun to notice a distinctly familiar aura about this presidency — a fairly predictable aura to anyone who has been observing Trump from outside his cult’s myopic circus tent: the aura of the...

Trumpanzees Try to Deflect from Bannon Story

Streiff at RedState, one of Donald Trump’s most ardent damage controllers — it’s amusing how many feel the need to defend the honor of a man they claim to believe is Alpha++ — has posted an article in which he tries to deflect attention from Trump’s embarrassing chest-beating gorilla act over Steve Bannon, by nitpicking over inconsequential misstatements in Michael Wolff’s new “scandal”...

Imaginary Wall Just Got Ten Feet “Taller” (aka less real)

Republican lawmakers, continuing the time-honored Donald Jr.-Roger Stone-Reince Priebus-Jeff Sessions tradition of following Donald Trump around with a big beautiful pooper scooper, are now out at the microphones promising that of course when Trump built his cult of nationalist (i.e., anti-American populist) morons by endlessly repeating the mantra, “The Wall,” he didn’t actually mean a wall. He meant an amnesty deal. Someday, when...

Dwarf Wars II: Gee, Guess Who Wins

Matt Drudge — for years the GOP establishment’s most influential and valuable mouthpiece (aka fraud) within the so-called “new media” — inserts himself into the Trump-Bannon messy divorce case as Trump’s public defender and deflector shield. No surprise there. But what most people will fail to see is whom Drudge’s seek and destroy mission is really destined and designed to help: Mitch McConnell....
