Did Trump shiv Pence during his low-energy speech today?

It looks like we need to put Donald Trump in cryogenic freeze until science finds a cure for very, very low energy. Today, Trump came down from the prospectin’ camp what’s a spell up the mountain by the crick near the big rock next to Farmer Olsen’s hunner’-year-old oak tree to ramble incoherently about this and that and…

How the press keeps helping Trump spread his crooked Ukraine conspiracy

Tapped to handle damage control on the stunning revelation that Donald Trump aggressively tried to pressure a foreign country to dig up dirt on his possible 2020 Democratic opponent, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo engaged in reckless bouts of misinformation during appearances on Sunday morning shows yesterday—and the hosts did nothing to stop him. In…

“Sanity” Prevails? Why Am I Not Reassured?

Jeez, it’s getting so that you don’t dare to sleep anymore. Every time you close your eyes, that damn little ditty from Wes Craven starts going through your head, One, two, Donnie’s coming for you! Three, four, better lock your door. On the other hand, you need a good nights sleep if you’re going to have to wake up to…

Trump reportedly 'pleased' with his performance last night

If this report is true, I feel really sorry for Melania. x A source told me 30 minutes ago that Trump was pleased with his own performance last night, loved being in command by ordering the strikes and by then ordering the stand-down. And the president just… tweeted it. https://t.co/tUPSym7inn — Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) June…

Pompeo: Trump would 'do the right thing' if offered foreign election help

The sinister derp-state campaign to pass Donald Trump off as a real president and/or human being continues. Today, it was Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s turn. Speaking with Face the Nation’s Margaret Brennan, Pompeo risibly claimed that Trump would do what normal presidents, politicians, and people do if offered election assistance from a foreign entity…

Pompeo's solution to climate change: 'Move to different places'

Seems conservatives have two responses to the existential threat of global climate change. The least-educated GOPsters, such as Donald Trump and the secret vault of clones Dick Cheney harvests his replacement organs from, choose to ignore it. Less-benighted Republicans (and we’re definitely grading on a curve here) downplay the crisis by pretending everything will work out…

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…

Mike Pompeo's wishy-washy answer on NATO is beyond frightening

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sat down for an interview with blond Fox News female No. 1524c-114 yesterday, and his mealy-mouthed answer on NATO’s defense obligations should have everyone in the world (apart from Vladimir Putin) on edge. Here’s the relevant portion of the interview: MARTHA MACCALLUM: But there are some people who ask the question…

Coward Trump Can't Tell Mattis 'You're fired!'… Makes Pompeo Do It.

Big executive boss man didn’t have the courage to fire SecDef General Mattis to his face, so, in typical Trumpian fashion he had somebody else do it. Sec. of State Mike Pompeo. Bloomberg (Parens and bolds mine) “Hours after Mattis announced his resignation to Trump in an Oval Office meeting on Thursday, he released to…

Trump skips visit to hallowed military cemetery because it rained

Snowflakes melt in the rain, apparently. Don’t misinterpret this, haters. It’s not that he doesn’t know how to use an umbrella (which he doesn’t, apparently), or even that his bone spurs were acting up due to low barometric pressure. It’s that if he can’t arrive in his helicopter, he’s not even going to bother. From…
