WaPo: Mysterious whistleblower complaint involved Trump and foreign leader

Okay, this case wasn’t that mysterious, but now we have confirmation on who the likely culprit is.

According to reports, the complaint had to do with “serious or flagrant” abuse related…

Trump uses racist mock-Asian accent at posh fundraiser

Pardon me for quoting from the right-wing, Murdoch-owned New York Post, but the juxtaposition of these two paragraphs is just perfect in its perversity. The setting — a recent big-money Hamptons fundraiser. I guess Trump assumed he was among his “own people.” Trump kept returning to hit back at the “fake news” media attacks on him,…

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 Simple Mind of Donald Trump

Hillary: Trump's North Korea claims will amount to 'putting lipstick on a pig'

We all know what’s going to happen. Donald Trump will get totally bamboozled by Kim Jong Un, give away the store, and claim a huge breakthrough, convincing his idiot horde that he’s accomplished something no previous president ever could have. Meanwhile, he’ll freak out our allies by doing something stupid, like saluting a North Korean general or…

Kim Jong-un is playing Trump; Stephen King shows us how

No one in the world other than Donald Trump and his Greek chorus of ass-kissers thinks this administration has accomplished anything on North Korea. Trump got Kim to sign a worthless piece of paper, just as he did with Marla Maples and Ivana. How did that turn out? And almost instantly after the first Trump-Kim summit, Trump…

Leon Panetta: Failed Trump-Kim summit was 'all about show'

Not sure it really needed to be said, but former CIA director and defense secretary Leon Panetta told This Week’s Martha Raddatz today that Trump’s June summit with Kim Jong Un was basically an Insane Clown Posse concert without the juggalos or gravitas: “The problem is that in many ways it was doomed to failure from the…
