Summarizing Trump’s Defense for Links to Multiple Potential Crimes: I’m Incompetent

For a man who likes to have his name on damn near everything in which he’s involved, and doesn’t hesitate to try to take credit for any positive news he can spin to make himself look good, even when he has nothing to do with it, it’s astonishing how “hands-off” Donald Trump claims to be […]

Rick Wilson Hilariously Mocks Mike Pence’s Embarrassing Flattery of Trump (Video)

While most of our attention is focused on Donald Trump and his ever-growing list of scandals, controversies, and disgusting behavior — with many people calling for him to be impeached — a lot of people seem to be forgetting just how terrible Mike Pence, the person who’d replace Trump if he were removed from office, […]

Even Trump’s Innocuous Tweets Seem to Prove His Cluelessness

It’s no secret that Donald Trump loves Twitter. Like a petulant tween desperately using social media to get attention, Trump’s Twitter tantrums have become a daily embarrassment. That said, one tweet he sent out on Thursday which was essentially harmless (and mostly overlooked) seems to prove that he’s an incompetent fool who really has no […]

5 Reasons Why Donald Trump’s Bullsh*t is So Difficult for Rational People to Combat

It should come as no surprise that most of the political questions I’ve been asked by people over the last couple of years revolve around Donald Trump. They tend to follow a pattern of bewilderment by those who — like most of us — don’t understand how tens of millions of people actually believe Trump’s […]

Top Fox News Legal Analyst: Devin Nunes Putting U.S. at Risk Playing Politics with Classified Intel (Video)

How Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) still has a job — or at least isn’t currently under investigation — is baffling. As the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, he’s spent the last year serving as Donald Trump’s stooge trying to undermine the on-going investigations into this “president’s” campaign. Last year he even went as far […]

Why Our Enemies Might be Trying to Help Make Donald Trump Look Good

Since Donald Trump’s election in 2016, a lot hasn’t seemed right. The fact that such a horrific human being could ascend to the highest office in our land is still an embarrassing disgrace. However, something else more recently hasn’t seemed right — our enemies seemingly trying to make Donald Trump look good. In particular, North Korean dictator […]

With One Move, Trump Destroyed the Credibility of the United States

There’s a saying I’m sure most people reading this have heard that a person is only as good as their word. Well, following Donald Trump’s announcement that the United States will be openly violating the agreement we struck with our allies and Iran concerning the country’s nuclear ambitions, he’s ruined any credibility the United States has […]

There’s Only One Reason Why Trump Has Decided to Violate the Iran Nuclear Deal

Anyone who was surprised by yesterday’s news that Donald Trump will violate the nuclear deal with Iran obviously hasn’t been paying attention. Since the moment he took office, it wasn’t a matter of if this was going to happen — just when. And let’s make one thing perfectly clear: this is Trump publicly stating that […]

This is a Simple Trick Republicans Use to Con Millions of Americans Into Supporting Them

I had a friend ask me the other day why it seems like Republicans “win” more often than Democrats despite the fact that they’re obviously the party with out-of-date ideas, heavily fueled by racism/bigotry, and they’re clearly the biggest problem in our government (aka the more control they have, the more inept things seem to […]

Trump’s Comments on Giuliani Show How Ignorant Someone Has to Be to Believe Anything He Says

I wish I had more respect for supporters of Donald Trump — I really do. But I simply can’t respect them when they continue to believe this “president” is an honest and trustworthy person. Just a couple of days ago Rudy Giuliani, speaking on behalf of Trump (supposedly), gave a rather jaw-dropping interview where he […]
