Mnuchin says doing business with foreigners is okay for Trump's family, but not Biden's

Steve Mental Munchkin was on State of the Union with Jake Tapper this morning when, out of nowhere, the feculent fumes of rank hypocrisy suddenly filled the studio. Attempting to defend Trump’s clearly impeachable attempt to strong-arm Ukraine’s president into investigating Joe Biden, Mnuchin swallowed hard and proceeded to tie himself into a series of soft, salty pretzels….

Check out this very, very sad turnout at Donald Trump Jr. event in Kentucky

Please clap … Ryland Barton is a statehouse reporter for Kentucky Public Radio, and he’s got the scoop from today’s “Puppet Show and Donald Trump Jr.” event in Pikeville, Kentucky: x Organizers have asked the audience to move out of the seats and closer to the stage ahead of Trump Jr/ Gov. Bevin event in Pikeville.I think it's…

We need to get rid of Cyrus Vance Jr.

I don’t care that he is a Democrat. Being District Attorney of New York County (what the island of Manhattan is called as a county —  as a borough of NYC it is Manhattan) is to hold a safely Democratic seat. I don’t care that this DA had a distinguished father. All I need to…

Trump throws Don Jr. and Eric under the bus

Who wouldn’t Donald Trump throw under the bus? He just pointed two grubby little index fingers at his sons. Would he turn Melania over to ICE? Would he cut Barron open like a tauntaun if the furnace in the White House temporarily shut down? WHO THE FUCK KNOWS?!?!?!?!?!? When asked today about undocumented workers at…

Eric Trump apparently thinks Obama was president in 2008

Hoo-boy, the Trump kids are doing their level best to embarrass themselves the past few days. Yesterday, a video of Ivanka Trump attempting to speak authoritatively about something other than handbags went viral. And now Eric Trump is tweeting nonsense. Care to go for the trifecta, Don Jr.? Or maybe Tiffany wants to get in a…

The lid is off of the can

I used to have a favorite pet phrase when I was raising my kids. They’d do something goofy,and I’d tell friends, “You buy ‘em shoes, you dress ‘em up nice, you give ‘em breakfast, you send ‘em out the door, and wadda they do? They eat the covers off of the frigging books! What can…

Donald Trump Jr. retweets a tweet saying Cohen had no reason to lie

Didn’t Michael Cohen just say Trump thinks his son has the worst judgment in the world? Guess he’s right. So yesterday, Junior retweeted this: x Incredible to see all the hubris drained from Cohen. I've been personally screamed at by Cohen on the phone before and know how much bravado he once had. This is…

The answer is really quite simple.

Q: What do Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr, Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Jerome Corsi, and Roger stone all have in common? I mean besides the fact that they’re all major, world class assholes, of course. That one was too obvious. A: They just don’t get it. No, seriously, I mean that…

'Deep anxiety' setting in at White House: 'The walls are closing in'

Donald Trump has been extraordinarily petulant the past several days. Sure, even on a good day the guy is basically a spastic colon getting a Sriracha enema from a firehose, but even casual observers have noticed a crescendo of pique overwhelming the toddler occupant of 1600 Penn. Now, Politico is reporting that there’s a growing pall hanging…

Good morning! Donald Trump Jr. expects to be indicted!

It’s a schadenfreude showdown this morning. Do I dance on Scott Walker’s grave?* Do I drink a steaming hot cup of Donald Trump failure? Do I revel in the certainty that Trump’s criminal enterprise will now be subject to House oversight? Oh, here’s a dark horse candidate! Donald Trump Jr. expects to be indicted for…

Trump's real Michael Cohen problem.

Did any of you guys have a younger brother when you were growing up, or you ladies a younger sister? You'd be hanging with your friends, trying to be all cool and shit, and they'd be bouncing around like a neutrino, yapping like a Yorkshire terrier, and ruining all of the ambiance of the moment….

Could Trump face Magnitsky Act sanctions?

Already branded by a survey of historians as America’s worst ever, the presidency of Donald Trump may also live in infamy as the most ironic. After all, the man who ran to “Make America Great Again” has already ceded global climate leadership to China and Europe, withdrawn from the Pacific trade partnership created by the…

Trump's golden showers

Campaign Action Donald Trump and his Republican allies have two definitions of the term, “golden showers.” The first concerns a notorious—and as-yet unsubstantiated–claim from the so-called Russian dossier: Decorum prohibits elaborating further here. The second meaning of the term, however, describes any public policy—usually involving taxes—which overwhelmingly delivers its benefits to the very richest people in…
