Whoa, Trump sure doesn't like this new Biden ad

Forgive me if this has already been shared, but it’s a must-see: x Donald Trump is apparently losing his mind on twitter over this ad so watch it and retweet it to share it far and wide. pic.twitter.com/WNSnmFZfr0 — Adam Parkhomenko (@AdamParkhomenko) June 19, 2020 Trump’s totally sane and measured response? x The Democrats are…

Trump plays the trade war like it's 1812

Trump is losing his trade war and what’s worse is that he’s clueless about the reason for the losing. The prevailing truth is that stupidity has given way to irrationality. “The truth, however, is that there has seldom been clearer proof that Trump is in fact the world’s worst negotiator. And the price Americans are…

How Trump's phony Mexico trade deal duped the press

Donald Trump lies about everything. So why do newsrooms still assume he's telling the truth, especially when he unveils grand initiatives? On Friday, Trump claimed he had reached a landmark last-minute immigration deal with Mexico, which meant he no longer had to impose the tariffs he had been threatening, part of his incoherent southern-border policy….

U.S. Steel laying off hundreds of workers in Michigan

Donald Trump likes to pretend that the American steel industry is one of the few domestic industries that hasn’t been vigorously wedgied by his tariff regime.  Not only has he claimed his tariffs have singlehandedly revived the industry … x In one year Tariffs have rebuilt our Steel Industry – it is booming! We placed a…

'He's rattled': Paranoid Trump broods about possible recession

You can tell when Donald Trump is upset about something — his lies and non sequiturs become far more feral, frequent, and surreal. Meanwhile, we all sit back and observe with a mixture of contempt, amusement, and horror — like watching a chimpanzee in a room with several boxes scattered around try to get the banana…

Farmers confront Trump's ag secretary: 'We are not doing great again'

Apparently, the metric shit-ton of manure Donald Trump spread over the Midwest while running for president has not materially improved the outlook for the region’s farmers.  They’re worried, anxious, and increasingly pissed off, as Trump’s agriculture secretary, Sonny Perdue, learned today during a panel discussion at a fair in rural Minnesota. And, more and more,…

Trump admits trade war could drag on past 2020 election

Donald Trump said today that he believes China may seek to delay trade negotiations until after the 2020 election in the hope that the country could negotiate with another president a sane person. Reuters: “I don’t think personally China would sign a deal if I had a 2% chance of losing the election,” Trump told reporters…

Trump tariffs 'could result in a Bible shortage'

Well, that’s karma — or whatever the Christian equivalent of karma is. Eternal perdition? Because that’s what they’ve given us … So now this is happening: Because they elected Donald Trump, white evangelical Christians could soon be facing a severe Bible shortage.  Trump is still threatening a 25 percent tariff on $300 billion of Chinese goods,…

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…

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…

Trump's farm “subsidy” scam may not work so well this time.

So, daddy’s widdle man whipped out his wallet, pulled out daddy’s credit card, and treated his farmer buddies to another free lunch today, huh? Before Trump waddled out to the podium to peddle his latest bottle of snake oil, he had his Agriculture Suckretary, Sonny Perdue sunburn his bald pate in fatuously explaining how the…

Besides Trump's Tariffs, Overproduction Is Hurting Farmers.

There is so little good information about what is going on with farmers, especially in KY, if you are not plugged into a rural community that is (I’m a city boy in Louisville).  But I came upon this report that came out before the Chinese trade talks tanked.  Why this report by WKU and NPR…
