tantrums

Pardon the quick post, but it’s 2am here and I have a few thoughts I need to get down before I try to sleep—which I won’t. Kelly Loeffler has never won an election, and last night was no different. Raphael Warnock won. Big. Right now he’s over 40 thousand votes....

Trump’s up late again, fantasizing things about Georgia’s Secretary of State. Trump is obviously unhappy with Brad R. x The person, Ron Raffensperger, exists. But he is not Brad's brother. James O'Keefe is not my brother, either. See how that works?— Brendan Keefe (@BrendanKeefe) December 30, 2020 x https://t.co/UQEiQ3xIIO —...

IANAPs, so I can’t say if or how sadism is associated with narcissism, even the malignant kind. But Trump sure presents as embodying both conditions. President-elect Joe Biden on Saturday slammed Trump for refusing to sign the agreement into law. “It is the day after Christmas, and millions of families...

Contradictions and false consciousness inhabit many Trumpists and Trump voters, demanding a crypto-fascist election outcome, a sad commentary on the times. Trump himself is left with autocratic fantasies fed by his closest sycophants. x Sources who have gotten used to Trump’s eruptions over four years sound scared by what’s transpired in...

Trump will leave quietly, as Michael Cohen has suggested, likely to Mar-a-Lago early and not return. He will remain noisy throughout, whining about the theft of an election even as he tried to steal it using ridiculous degrees of lawfare, losing with a score of 1-60. Meanwhile, a month of temper-tantrums, as...

I have to hand it to Michelle Obama. She’s a better person than I am. (Not an especially high bar, but still.) Today, in the wake of Donald Trump’s one-manbaby poo-fling-palooza, she took pointed jabs at Trump without all the blood-letting that often accompanies such screeds. And it amply demonstrated what...

This is fun, especially when a not so very funny Obama protege becomes rather funny. Former Obama Campaign Manager David Plouffe appeared with Nicolle Wallace, where he had advice and a new Donald Trump description.

Thank you: Joe Biden on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of throwing “temper tantrums” rather than showing concern for those affected by the coronavirus pandemic, escalating his criticism of Trump following a series of exceedingly contentious White House briefings over the past few weeks. “He likes to say he’s a...

Mitigation: What you do when you can no longer stop a contagious disease from spreading. It’s the next fallback position — you try to slow the spread down.

Remember when Donald Trump, instead of taking the bull by the horns and helping our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria, decided to throw paper towels at them, blame them for their troubles, whine about the expense their predicament was incurring, lie about the expense itself, and excoriate their...

How so tried are we of the crap coming from the Orange Emperor IMPOTUS.

Donald Trump is a complete embarrassment on the world stage: scandals, twitter tantrums, treason, incompetence, discrimination, bigotry, porn stars, misogyny,  complete lack of integrity….I could go on and on, but you get the gist.  If you wondered what the complete opposite of Trump is, you need to look no further than...
