Alex Jones Rattles Off One of the Most Revolting Rants I’ve Ever Heard (Video)

Alex Jones is a piece of trash. This deplorable parasite is nothing more than a con man who’s made millions of dollars peddling lies, conspiracies, and hate to people who I can only assume are legitimately insane. How anybody can listen to this revolting pile of excrement and take anything he says seriously is beyond me. […]

Sean Hannity Embarrasses Himself in Latest Attempt to Defend Trump’s Insanity (Video)

Without a doubt, one of the biggest frauds in this country is Fox News’ Sean Hannity. A con man and a hypocrite, this is someone no rational person could ever take seriously.

CBO Report Confirms My Biggest Fear About Trump’s Sabotage of Obamacare

While some folks celebrated Donald Trump and the GOP’s failed attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare), my reaction was far more subdued. I was happy that, at least for that moment, Republicans had failed in their attempt to strip health care away from millions of people and gut Medicaid — but I […]

Donald Trump Retweets Violent Image of Him Assaulting Hillary Clinton

Nothing like the current “President” of the United States promoting violence against women to get the day started. This morning, Trump retweeted a video someone made depicting him hitting a golf ball off a tee, only to hit Hillary Clinton in the back: Donald Trump's amazing golf swing #CrookedHillary pic.twitter.com/vKhxxFCBV1 — Mike (@Fuctupmind) September 14, […]

Over the last few days there’s been a lot made of ESPN journalist Jemele Hill’s comments on Twitter where she called Donald Trump a “white supremacist” who’s “surrounded himself with other white supremacists.” Naturally, the conservative media was quick to seize on her comments, many calling for her to be fired, while Trump, himself, demanded […]

On Friday, Trump Reminded Everyone What a Shameful Disgrace He is to This Country

I don’t feel like you need to be a doctor or any sort of medical professional to realize something isn’t right with Donald Trump.
