Trump just implied he's glad John McCain is dead and thinks he may be in hell

Am I reading too much into this? Here’s Trump’s quote from earlier today. It doesn’t quite capture the vitriol, so feel free to watch the clip for yourself. But take your Dramamine first. (Second tweet) “… both houses where we had Congress, where we had the Senate, and we had wonderful congressmen. We had the House of Representatives…

The real problem with the USS McCain nonsense.

It has become a defining feature, perhaps the defining feature of the m(or)onarchy of King Schitwitz the First. And the longer we live under the thumb of Fumbles the Clown, the more pronounced it gets. I’m talking about the phenomena of “Hey, remember when this shit was funny?” They came out of the blocks quickly. On the…

Klobuchar says McCain recited names of dictators during Trump's inauguration

I never watched Donald Trump’s inauguration. Couldn’t do it. I think I spent the day flossing my perineum with concertina wire, because that seemed far, far less demoralizing. But Minnesota senator and presidential hopeful Amy Klobuchar was there, and during a campaign event in Des Moines, Iowa, on Saturday, she recounted the late Sen. John…

What kind of d*ck responds in ALL CAPS to a woman's eulogy for her father?

I’ll tell you what kind of duck. A lame duck — who is hemorrhaging influence and political capital by the day. (Okay, so he’s not technically a lame duck by the standard political definition, but he’s decidedly à l’orange, and no one is lamer.) So you’d think if you were banned from a universally respected American hero’s funeral…

Meghan McCain Dismantles Trump In Her Eulogy for Her Father.

I’m not the biggest fan of Meghan McCain or her father but watching her tear into Trump was a thing of beauty. Make no mistake: the applause ringing out at the Cathedral when Meghan McCain says 'America has no need to be made great again because America was always great' is not standard. Never heard…

MSNBC Coverage of “Celebrating Aretha Franklin.”

I have the TV on in the background, and I have been listening to MSNBC’s coverage of “Celebrating Aretha Franklin” in Detroit.  I always enjoyed listening to Aretha’s music when I was growing up.  I think my favorite song of her’s is “Until You Come Back to Me.” And I am finding out a lot…

Brit Hume is the latest Fox pundit to lash out at King Idiot

No one would ever confuse Brit Hume with David Hume (people used to ask me all the time how I would ever use philosophy in the real world — asked and answered, motherfuckers). But ol’ Brit is the latest Fox News pundit to cast a jaundiced eye in King Carotene’s direction. Shepard Smith has long been…

Commander in chief Trump goes AWOL

“The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States.” With that phrase, Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States ensures civilian control over—and accountability for—the American military. While the power to declare war rests with Congress, responsibility for America’s global vision, its foreign policy…

The Halliburton of the Left

Hey, why not DKOS ??? Take it to the bank! We got contacts at the White House. They want to elect their favorite presidential candidate. Why not cut a deal like Halliburton in the 00's ? Sure thing: we back off a skosh on pushing Bernie Sanders, they give us a multi-billion dollar MMM war…
