Ilhan Omar sets Trump straight on the true meaning of impeachment

Donald Trump seems to think a healthy U.S. economy should make him immune from impeachment. That’s a little like saying a thief should be let off because he pays his taxes. Or that Mussolini made the trains run on time. But then Trump has never been one for, well, the law. In another flailing tweet…

Trump cranks the racism up to 11 at his Minnesota hate rally

And the state has just 10 electoral votes. Finding white men with a racist grudge in the Midwest isn’t exactly a heavy lift. I lived in the region for decades. Go into any bar that serves Jägermeister, mutter something barely intelligible about food stamps or free Obama phones, and they’ll flock to you like raccoons…

Trump retweets another Ilhan Omar smear, claims she 'partied' on anniversary of 9/11

Donald Trump could end up getting Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar killed. That’s not hyperbole. That’s a potentially foreseeable outcome of the libels and slanders he continually spreads about her. Today, he was at it again, retweeting online gutter troll Terrence Williams, who had suggested (falsely, of course) that Omar had “partied” on the anniversary of 9/11. …

Incessant, and Absurd

President Trump has repeatedly accused the two Muslim-American women in Congress of being Jew-haters and enemies of Israel. His repeated base rallying cries, specifically aimed at Rep. Ilhan Omar, ending with, [Omar] “says horrible things about Israel, hates Israel, hates Jews,” has become part of his general traveling big top act.  As they do with…

The Vilest Voice in the Room

Recently, the Showtime cable network aired a 7-part series entitled The Loudest Voice.  The show centered around the behavior of a man driven by paranoia, narcissism, and sexual malevolence. If you watched even one episode it comes as no surprise that Roger Ailes as CEO and Chairman of Fox News built a propaganda machine for…

A Willingness to Collude

Not too many weeks ago Donald Trump told Democratic Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib along with three other American congresswomen of color to go back from where they came. Of course, Mr. Trump displayed his usual ignorance because Rep. Tlaib was born in Detroit, one of the most iconic middle-class enclaves in America.  Setting aside the…

Do-nothings, Know-nothings and Trump-nothings…

It has been widely accepted that the “Third Rail” of politics is tampering with Social Security benefits. Similarly, the third rail of conversation is religion.  Buried beneath the press but giving oxygen to the likes of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY.) and White House adviser Stephen Miller on Sunday talk shows attempting to defend racism, a…

Stephen Miller visits 'Fox News Sunday' to gaslight the country

Stephen Miller is patient zero in the nativist, anti-immigrant contagion that’s swept across our country. Sure, Donald Trump ran on white racial grievance, but he can’t focus on anything for too long — not even his deep-seated prejudices and the cruelty that naturally springs from them. Without Miller, the administration might have drifted into something…

Trump retweets racist who promoted 'final solution' for Muslims

And the hits keep coming. This morning, in a bid to prove he really isn’t racist at all, Donald Trump retweeted a virulent racist. Because it’s 2019, and shit like this happens all the time.  x As you can see, I did nothing to lead people on, nor was I particularly happy with their chant. Just…

The Gang of Hate

Not only has the Republican Party allowed Donald John Trump to operate above the law, but they have also sanctioned his acts beyond humanity.  In 2013 eight Senators, 4 Democrats and 4 Republicans [The Gang of Eight] made a serious foray into ending America’s much-disputed entry policy for foreign emigres into the United States. This…

Ilhan Omar greeted at home state airport with rousing chant

No, not that chant. This one: x *This* is America.#WelcomeHomeIlhan was chanted as Congresswoman @Ilhan arrived home to the Twin Cities this evening. pic.twitter.com/S088GQddwJ — 💙 Koko ✊✊🏽✊🏾💙 (@Kokomothegreat) July 19, 2019 That feels pretty good, doesn’t it? I needed that. And I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one. #WelcomeHomeIlhan Is Trump still singeing your…

Trump's horde has new disgusting rallying cry: 'Send her back'

This guy. What a fucking asshole. Crowd at tonight’s Trump rally in North Carolina breaks out into chants of “Send her back!” as the president attacks Rep. Ilhan Omar pic.twitter.com/0q5L39W61h — Jon Passantino (@passantino) July 17, 2019 This is about as clever as these budding Voltaires are ever going to get, but that doesn’t mean…

Both Sides Do it… ‘Again’

Two-hundred and forty combined Congressmen and women voted to officially condemn Donald Trump, for maligning 4 American female members of Congress, of color, as interlopers, who should “go back” to the country from “which they came.”  With racism staring him squarely in the face yesterday, Mitch McConnell defended Donald Trump with a cheap imitation.  “Everyone…

The Mooch returns! … to call out Donald Trump's racism

When you’ve lost this loony bird, you know you’ve gone off the deep end (or should know, anyway). Would @realDonaldTrump ever tell a white immigrant – whether 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th+ generation – to "go back to your country"? No. That's why the comments were racist and unacceptable. America is a nation of immigrants…
