Trump fumes over lack of recognition for his imaginary accomplishments

Donald Trump played the New York media like a fiddle for decades, even successfully masquerading as his own PR flack on several occasions. So he probably thought it would be just as easy to fool the national media after he entered politics. But it’s been a much choppier ride than he expected, and there simply aren’t…

A.B. Stoddard piece from RCP about Trump-McConnell “Marriage.”

A.B. Stoddard has up an interesting write up that McConnell’s precious Senate majority is in worse electoral shape than realized because of the orange baboon in the White House.   But first, the setting of Stoddard’s piece is the latest fit by the feces thower in chief over immigration and his use of a tariff threat…

Polls say Michigan voters hate Trump's trade policies … a lot

Winning Michigan is vital to Donald Trump’s hopes in 2020. In fact, the Midwest as a whole is key to his reelection strategy. So it’s notable that his quixotic, high-profile tariffs have been a gut-punch to farmers and autoworkers in Michigan and across the region. We often assume members of Trump’s base are too thick…

Wall Street analysts: Trump's Mexico tariffs will undermine China trade negotiations

Trump’s decision to slap new tariffs on Mexico until Mexico stops airdropping Mexicans onto American strawberry fields and dairy farms will have serious unintended consequences, according to several Wall Street analysts.

Four critics of U.S. immigration policy denied entry to Mexico, passports flagged

If you didn’t think Donald Trump’s dyspeptic pettiness and despotic daydreams could seep into the real world, well, you haven’t paid attention to history. Or to Donald Trump. Two immigration attorneys and two journalists have reported being denied entry to Mexico in recent days after their passports were flagged. The immigration attorneys have been vocal…

There ain't gonna be a wall, and Trump now knows it

It now looks like the only way we’re going to get a Mexican border wall is if Stephen Miller makes one himself out of that spray-on hair gunk he doused his head with last Sunday. Everyone knows it — even the eternally obtuse Donald Trump. And he’s a bit piqued about it. From CNN: President Donald…

OK Mr President, can you go over this one more time?

OK, I think I’ve finally got this shit figured out. The real reason that Dumbledork of DC keeps talking so much is because he’s finally figured out that rank stupidity is the only thing that he can continue to export without China and the European Union slapping a 25% tariff on it. Although, if they’re on their game,…

Trump Is Still Screwing Up Trade.

While we are focused on government-sponsored child abuse, Hurricane Maria’s death toll in Puerto Rico, Mueller’s Russia Investigation, and the deaths of Senator John McCain and Aretha Franklin, looks like Trump thinks he can slap another $200 billion in tariffs on China next week, according to Bloomberg that is.  I suspect this may be true…
