Former President Trump ordered the Pentagon to release all of its information on “unidentified aerial phenomena” (UAP) within 18 days in his last coronavirus relief bill in December 2020. More inexplicable sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) will be released for public scrutiny in June — including a UFO that broke...

If Donald Trump truly had a magic Sharpie, he could create a Froopyland in his own image and live there forever. In that enchanted land, tropical storms would go wherever he wanted them to, he’d be billions richer than Michael Bloomberg, Ivanka would be someone else’s daughter, and he somehow wouldn’t look...

Trump staves off the 25th Amendment chatter as Biden leads nationally by 14%.

Apparently Trump originally wanted to do a rally to support Tommy Tuberville against Jeff Sessions, but no one in Alabama wanted it. Then the campaign wanted to use that slot to do an airport-hanger rally in New Hampshire, but now a storm may rain on the Trump parade, probably fortuitous...

Trump really hates it when reality gets in the way of his fantasies. When Hurricane Dorian was threatening the southeast coast, Trump mistakenly included Alabama in a tweet, and Alabama residents, who had thought they were not in its path, started to panic. NOAA Birmingham, reacting to the panic (they...

Have you ever considered what happens when Donald Trump loses in November? One year ago, his former attorney Michael Cohen testified before Congress that Trump would not accept electoral defeat this upcoming election. Sadly, he’s probably right: If there’s one thing Trump has been consistent about, it’s that he narcissistically refuses to accept...

Donald Trump praised a dog named Conan today for “his” role in the successful raid on ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Such a wack letter refusing to cooperate did allow for the possibility that Trump reviewed it but the Daily Beast reports that Trump had a much deeper role, which explains the rhetorical craziness. The simplistic Trumpian lexicon did reveal itself in the use of adjectives like “powerfully” and phrases like...

On this day in 2001, 2,977 people were killed (with some still dying) by 19 terrorists in three separate attacks on the United States, including New York City, Washington, D.C. and near where I live in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. One of those attempts failed to hit its target, either the White...

As the saying goes, to err is human, whereas to err; double-, triple-, and quadruple-down on the erring; and then take out a Sharpie to alter an official government weather map before denying you did so is oh-so-Trumpian. For some reason, Donald Trump’s new press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, thought it would be...
