A Plea to Friends Defending Trump

Here is Donald Trump’s latest wisdom addressing the current crackdown on those Hong Kong protesters lunging for one more gasp of air as the Chinese Communist Party slowly suffocates their last hopes of independence from the totalitarian behemoth. Trump: “We have to stand with Hong Kong, but I’m also standing with President Xi.” — Daniel Dale (@ddale8) November 22, 2019 A grand act...

Hey, what’s a little quid pro quo among friends?

Donald Trump and his spokesmonkeys throughout the administration and the “conservative media” spent the first weeks of the furor over Trump’s alleged use of promised U.S. assistance to Ukraine as a bargaining chip for Ukraine’s help in providing dirt on Joe Biden’s son shouting, “There was no quid pro quo!” They used the expression exactly the way they had previously used “No collusion!” ...

Trump loses again, as predicted (Updated)

So far, Donald Trump’s ingenious Syrian strategy of serving up the U.S.-allied Kurds to a massacre, handing Kurdish land in northern Syria to Turkish invaders, and then allowing Vladimir Putin to sweep in, along with his friend Bashar al-Assad, to take control of the entire region, is working out brilliantly.  Oh, sorry, that wasn’t Trump’s plan? That was just what I said would...

“Hey, wha’ happin?”

The day Donald Trump pulled his “Let them eat Turkish bullets” stunt against the Kurds — since, after all, the Kurdish navy contributed squat at Normandy, and an orange elephant never forgets — I said, matter-of-factly (or so it seemed to me), that this was yet another instance of Trump directly capitulating to Vladimir Putin’s interests. Since then, I have chronicled, with equal...

To those fools who thought Trump was a Russian agent…

Donald Trump abandons Kurdish allies in Northern Syria, and does so not in spite of the threat of a Turkish massacre of those allies, but precisely in order to facilitate that massacre, at the personal “request” of the Turkish dictator.  As they are being massacred, beheaded, humiliated on video by happy Turkish “killing machines” (to apply correctly the term Trump applied repulsively to...

Poor, Misunderstood Vladimir: Just a Religious Crusader Who Can’t Catch a Break

And the fascinating e-mails just keep on coming. Jamie Glazov, a relentless alternative media propagandist for Donald Trump, passes along a link to a wonderful article at American Greatness. (Hmm, that name reminds me of something…a campaign slogan, perhaps….) The article is by Michael Finch, who happens to have the very legitimate-sounding title, “president of the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Los Angeles.”...

Back in Limbo: How Low Can America Go?

I apologize to regular visitors for my uncharacteristically long absence from Limbo. I have just returned from a visit to the Democratic People’s Republic of Canada — but more on that later. For now, I will merely offer a few observations about the week’s big TV event, namely the latest and greatest episode of Trump’s Sellout Summit Series with Global Killers, Season One....

No Collusion! (Trump Just Likes KGB Thugs)

Donald Trump is at the G-7 economic summit making news by acting, as he has done so many times before, as chief spokesman and apologist for Vladimir Putin. Here is a video clip of his response to a direct question about the reason Russia was expelled from the former G-8, namely the annexation of Crimea: Notice how Trump, Mr. Tell-it-like-it-is, begins by completely...

Getting Fat on Trump-Russia “Nothing-burgers”

For months, various pseudo-conservative voices, and even a few genuine conservatives, have been leaping to microphones everywhere to declare — like a child who covers his ears and shouts “lalalalalalalala” — that all talk of inappropriate Russian connections within the Trump campaign, family, and associates, is a “nothing-burger.” The mere fact that so many of them have literally used this same hideously cacophonous,...

Making America Russian Again

There has been a great kerfuffle over Donald Trump’s use of a moral equivalency argument to defend Vladimir Putin against Bill O’Reilly’s description of the latter as “a killer,” to which the Tweeter-in-Chief replied, “There’s a lot of killers, you got a lot of killers. Why, you think our country’s so innocent?” Trump’s cult members, predictably, have doubled down on their master’s moronitude, flooding the virtual universe with every...
