Caitlyn Jenner’s Response to Transgender Ban Exemplifies My Biggest Issue with Republicans

When it comes to Republicans, in particular Trump supporters, there’s a litany of things that disgust me about them that I could list here. From the bigotry, to the racism, to the outright ignorance it takes to believe a con man like Trump should be president, it’s all absolutely inexcusable. As some have joked, myself […]

Republican Rep. Gets Owned Trying to Blame Media for Trump’s Attacks on Sessions (Video)

Because reality doesn’t often coincide with what Republicans want people to believe, the mainstream media has become one of their primary targets. In a classic tactic used by most conspiracy theorists, when facts don’t support what you want people to think is real, simply attack those reporting the facts as “part of the conspiracy against […]

Stephen Colbert Perfectly Slams ‘Crazy’ Trump: ‘Thank You?,’ No, ‘F*ck You’ (Video)

I haven’t written about him in a while, but last night Stephen Colbert absolutely unloaded on Donald Trump following his decision to ban transgender Americans from the military. “I really think he’s off his meds,” Colbert said. “Because he went from crazy to cruel.” The Late Show host then read the three cowardly tweets Trump […]

Here’s Why Trump Should Fear Firing Sessions, But He’s Too Stupid to Realize It

Since Donald Trump’s an insecure egomaniac who’s not very intelligent, that means he’s prone to underestimating a situation, making a mistake — then doing it all over again later because he was too stupid, unhinged, and arrogant to learn a lesson the first time. Well, that’s what we’re currently seeing with Trump’s increasing hostility and public […]

Trump’s Nothing More Than a Wannabe Dictator Who Acts Like a Crime Boss

Well before he “won” last year’s election, I said that Donald Trump never wanted to be a “president,” he wanted to be a dictator. He’s never had any desire to lead a Constitutional government based on laws, a system of checks and balances, democracy, and the freedom of the press. Oh, no. What Trump wants […]

Trump Continues Mental Breakdown in Embarrassing Tuesday Twitter Rant

Once again, Tuesday morning Donald Trump unleashed another unhinged, incoherent Twitter rant spanning several hours. As I just said on Twitter, I think we really need to start making a bigger deal out of the fact that the current “president” clearly spends several hours nearly every morning watching television and whining about what he sees on […]

Not a Joke: Fox News’ Jason Chaffetz Praises ‘Transparency’ of Trump Family (Video)

For anyone who might have been wondering if former Republican congressman Jason Chaffetz was going to be less of a scumbag after quitting Congress, you all can rest easy, because it’s clear he’s going to be every bit as terrible in his new job as a Fox News analyst as he was during his tenure in […]

One Tweet on Monday Perfectly Exemplified Trump’s Corrupt, Failing Presidency

Along with showing all the signs of a textbook narcissist, Donald Trump’s mind seems to operate like that of a preschooler who doesn’t possess the cognitive abilities to understand the reality around him. It’s like I told a buddy of mine over the weekend, if you look at how Trump behaves, along with a lot of the things […]

Make No Mistake About It, Donald Trump Desperately Wants to Fire Robert Mueller – And Probably Will

For those of you who might still be wondering if Donald Trump will fire special counselor Robert Muller, spoiler alert: Odds are he’s going to. In fact, if you ask me, I absolutely believe that he made that decision long ago. The only reason he hasn’t is because he knows once he does, all hell’s going to […]

I’d Like to Address One of My Biggest Pet Peeves with Trump Supporters

One of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to Donald Trump supporters are those who finally reach a point where he’s said or done something they can no longer defend, who then try to act shocked that he would behave in such a manner. Excuse my language, but that’s complete bullshit. Throughout his entire life, […]
