Trump threatens NPR in wake of Pompeo outburst

It’s no secret that Donald Trump hates media outlets that challenge him and his administration. In the past, he’s singled out The Washington Post and CNN, corruptly using his office to try to punish them and their parent companies. Now he appears to be threatening NPR’s funding following a recent dustup between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo…

the Mike Pompitous of hate and Trump is still … #ImpeachedForLife

The disinformation continues as a new week will bring perhaps that impeachment trial, even if some of us might want the GOP to sweat a bit more. x These continued violations of Iraq’s sovereignty by groups not loyal to the Iraqi government must end.— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) January 12, 2020 x Killing of General Qasim…

Trump is reportedly turning on Pompeo now

Enemies. Enemies everywhere! Keep your head on a swivel, Donny. Are you sure that’s really Ivanka? It could be Adam Schiff in a blond wig and couture.  So now Donald Trump is reportedly miffed at one of his closest allies, the eternally obsequious Mike Pompeo, his longtime (by Trump administration standards) secretary of ingratiation.  NBC News:…

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…

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…
