2020 shaping up — as 2016!

Bernie Sanders has had a heart attack. If this is anything more than the sort of blip on a heart scan that doctors notice two months later, there is little question that his presidential campaign is done. In fact, under these circumstances, I think it would say a lot about his immoderate lust for power if he even considered staying in the race...

Shocker: No One Cares

Trump promised to eliminate the national debt. The debt is growing faster than ever. Trump promised to build a big beautiful wall, and said Mexico would pay for it. There is virtually no new wall of any sort, none of it the type Trump promised, and Trump used a fake national emergency declaration (according to Trump’s own account) to steal American taxpayers’ money...

Trump proves my point

In my last post, I noted that, thanks to the ascension of Donald Trump and the Trumpists, it is no longer possible to say with ease which of America’s two major parties would be more likely to instigate violent social upheaval to achieve its ends. Within twenty-four hours of that musing, Trump caused a new stir on Twitter by invoking the specter of...

Which party is going to instigate the violence?

Over at Alt-Right Poop (formerly Right Scoop), the top two headlines as I wake up on this Sunday morning, Korean Time, are “TRUMP TWEETS that impeachment Dems are ‘SAVAGES’!” and “Rashida Tlaib is trying to raise money with ‘Impeach the motherf**ker’ shirt.” Which leads me to ponder this strange question: When the election year rioting starts, which party will have instigated it? The...

Impeachable You

The Democrats in the House of Representatives are initiating an inquiry into impeaching President Trump. In practice, this means they are promising to plan to look into whether or not it would be worthwhile to move forward with the process of preparing actual articles of impeachment against Trump upon which they might eventually vote. This is Nancy Pelosi’s too-clever-by-half way of smoothing over...

“This town isn’t small enough for the both of us!”

Either uncooperative John Bolton has been fired by big tough man Donald Trump — or big tough Johnny Bolton has submitted his resignation to wimpy little Donald Trump. It all depends which of them tweeted last.  Well, I guess this is part of Trump’s recent “woman scorned” routine against Fox News, which is where he found Bolton during that beautiful, star-crossed summer of...

Carly Fiorina Proves a Point

I have a question for all the old Ted Cruz supporters from the 2016 primaries who have since chosen to support Donald Trump. I mean the real Cruz supporters, not just the many who now claim he was their first choice, in order to convince us that their “Trump is God” boxer shorts were the result of an honest, objective reassessment of all...

Random Reflections: Drinkers, Rapists, Potty Mouths

Trump’s personal assistant, a twenty-eight-year-old party girl — Reince Priebus’s party, that is — went out drinking with reporters, and lo and behold, she got a little drunk, whereupon she bragged and blabbed to said reporters about personal matters related to the Trump family. For this indiscretion, which she claims, pathetically, was supposed to be “off the record,” she has been dismissed from...

God Has The Power

To critics who question Donald Trump’s banter about forcing U.S. companies to leave China, as part of his ongoing reality TV trade war with an opponent at least seventy-five times more intelligent, patient, and vision-oriented than the Orange Knucklehead, the reality TV president offers this heartening answer: For all of the Fake News Reporters that don’t have a clue as to what the...
