A Few Easy Shots

I mentioned the other day that Jonah Goldberg is a writer who, in spite of his having remained agreeably consistent in his anti-Trumpism, has nevertheless failed to endear himself to me (not that he was trying to do so). I feel compelled to note, therefore, that his latest editorial (click the link) on the dying embers of the Trump presidency has me twitching...

The Guillotine

Yet another Trump cultist with a respectable public position has taken advantage of this tinder box moment in America to incite deadly violence on behalf of the worst (and in a sense, probably the last) president in U.S. history.  This time, it was Texas state Republican executive committee member Terry Harper — I do not care about the man’s personal existence whatsoever, but...

Begging for the FEMA Camps

In a fit of self-fulfilling prophecy, the Trump cult appears to be trying to put itself on a path to the internment camps their propaganda wing has been fearmongering about for years. If they continue demanding executions for elected Republicans and threatening violence in the streets to overturn a presidential election result they do not like, they may indeed put the U.S. Federal...

This Was Always the Way It Had to End

Here is Louie Gohmert, the Trump cult’s new lead spokesman, “explaining” what Trump’s fifty million drooling idiots should do to respond to the inevitable dismissal of his lawsuit against Mike Pence on the grounds, in part, that he has no standing to bring such a suit: “With regard to the standing issue, if a member of Congress who is going to object to...

Open Letter to the Enablers

If you knowingly serve drinks to an alcoholic, are you not guilty of enabling his deterioration? If you give heroine to a junkie, are you not an accomplice in his destruction? If you hide a schizophrenic’s medication, are you not abetting his lapse into unreason?  Today, the world is watching a megalomaniacal narcissist, an infantile sociopath, spiraling toward a crash landing of world-historical...

Not Exactly Nostradamus, But…

Barely one day ago, I noted the impossible position the millions of Trump cultists and apologists are about to find themselves in, as the U.S. Supreme Court laughs at his Texas bootlickers’ groundless and frivolous “lawsuit” aimed at summarily overriding states’ rights and declaring Donald Trump the winner of the 2020 presidential election, against all available evidence to the contrary. As I noted...

Freudian Slip of the Decade

One of the most pernicious and frustrating effects of the Donald Trump Fantasy President Show is the manner in which this once-in-a-lifetime political virus has learned to exploit hidden constitutional weaknesses in conservative-minded souls that had formerly appeared semi-reasonable, or even eminently reasonable, but which, through the virus’ ability to attach itself to a host’s most corrupted cells and then mysteriously inflate and...

Welcome to Trumpoholics Anonymous

Every smoker tells himself he will quit — but “not right now,” when he has so much stress to deal with in his life. Every drinker says, “I know I have to cut back, and I will — after I get through this divorce / get over this problem with my boss / survive my exams.” Everyone taking antidepressants insists he will reduce...

Trumpanzees Fling Poo, Hit Selves Yet Again!

There is just nothing — nothing, zero, nada — to say in favor of voting for Donald Trump. There wasn’t in 2016 (although at least it was understandable when Hillary was looming), and there certainly isn’t today. I have already dealt with all the usual excuses and rationalizations too many times to recite them again here. Today, however, yet another of the standard...

Classic Trump

If you were the biggest coward, fraud, and two-bit nothing in the entire history of your nation, and had somehow managed to flim-flam your way to the presidency (thereby revealing the demise of your nation), you would have to be gifted with some kind of genius at denying direct responsibility for…well, for your existence. Donald Trump is just such a “man,” and his...
