Everyone Poops, Including President Trump

Ever wonder what subsisting entirely on a diet of well done steak drenched in ketchup and washed down with Diet Coke does to your digestive system? Well wonder no more, curious reader. Yesterday the President of the United States engaged in some toilet talk. However, this time it didn't include two Russian hookers in a suite formerly...

Trump Is Not My President: I’ll Explain

It's a phrase that drives right wingers nuts. "Trump is not my President". To be fair, I understand why. Many people use it to disrespect the man. Full disclosure, I don't generally utter those words. However, they ring true to me. Are you offended by that? If so, allow me to explain. In...

President Trump Lies And Blames The Press

President Trump lies. This isn't anything new. However, this is a flagrant example. Moreover, it shows us how Trump lies, and then uses his lie to attack institutions in this country. In this example, the media simply reports what Trump says. They provide video of him saying. However, he apparently has changed his stance. Not wanting...

Dumb Crook News: President Trump Edition

President Obama had a pen and a phone. Republicans were infuriated. President Trump has a Sharpie and a weather map. Should he also have a cellmate? Probably not. However, we can have some fun exploring that question on "Dumb Crook News, President Trump Edition". It all started (where else) on Twitter. Trump Be...

The Second Coming Of God & President Trump

Usually, the President of the United States is good for a couple of major gaffes a week. However, the President had a busy day on Wednesday. He covered all of his bases. International diplomatic snafu? Check. Incoherent banter with the press? Check. Nothing could top his Twitter tirade where he quoted a right wing talk radio host...

The Mueller Report Volume 1

When the Mueller Report was released, the media scrambled to read and disseminate it. Quotes from the report abounded on the news. Volume 2 seemed to be the highlight. All of the evidence of potential crimes was allegedly contained therein. However, I find the Mueller Report Volume 1 to be very informative. In...

Is it time to exercise the 25th Amendment?

Yesterday, we learned that Iran shot down an unmanned United States drone. Last night, the President called off a retaliatory strike on Iran. My question here is unrelated to the wisdom of that decision. I'm separately asking is it time to exercise the 25th Amendment? President Trump defended his rationale behind calling off the...

Houston, We Have Another Moron

Houston, we have another moron.

Politicians aren't immune from saying stupid things. Sometimes it is a slip of the tongue. However, politicians often try to sound knowledgeable on subjects they know nothing about. Thus, they end up showing their ignorance in a very public and pronounced way. This is one of those occasions. Houston, we have another moron. Back...

A Billionaire On Welfare, Mexican Edition

A billionaire on welfare, Mexico edition

The other day Ramona posted a meme on Facebook, and it got me to thinking about President Trump's planned tariffs against Mexico. There is some truth to the meme, don't get me wrong. Yes, Americans will pay those tariffs, not Mexicans. However, it sells the situation short. President Trump is a billionaire on welfare. However, it's Mexican...

Tillerson is “dumb as a rock”. Who hired him?

To be clear, the headline isn't my opinion. I don't think Rex Tillerson is "dumb as a rock". In fact, I think he's a pretty smart guy. Moreover, I find that he did a pretty good job as Secretary of State. I originally thought he was a poor choice. However, I conceded that I was wrong a...
