He fed the tigers that are going to EAT him.

Wow… Just wow.  I don’t have to write a darn thing in this diary.  Read the facts.  They don’t lie.   This is gonna hurt Trump big time.  He fed the tigers that fueled their rise in politics.   He actually fed the tigers who are going to eat him in 2020. We know he donated to Clinton…

Biden is Playing with Trump's Head over VP [Update: It's Kamala!]

The New York Times reports in its election updates that Joe Biden is expected to reveal his running mate as soon as today. Or maybe tomorrow. Or make that Thursday. An earlier update reports that the process is — finally!  — drawing to a close and takes him to task for taking so long: In…

Trump promises new Iran deal 'within four weeks' … if he's reelected

President Vaporware is at it again. As with the “great” health care plan he assured us would replace Obamacare “immediately”; the elimination of the entire national debt in eight years; the big, beautiful wall Mexico was supposed to pay for; and a newly great America that never quite seemed to materialize, Trump is digging in his front…

Spartacists and the antifas like movies about gladiators

Street protests do not resemble those of the 1960s and Portland is not like Berlin after WWI, even as Trump has constructed from DHS tactical units and DoD contractors, an actual Freikorps. The Spartacist League and the Catholic League will not be meeting in the next World Baseball Classic. Trump probably cannot name a leader of antifa. Violent far-right…

Maureen Dowd is simply the Maggie Haberman of Chanel Rions.

Reminiscent of the Londo Cotton “send US troops” fiasco, the NY Times editorial folks need some staffing changes like the USPS. A vendetta is not a sports utility vehicle, MoDo really hates the Clintons – ya think? Maureen Dowd managed to forget about Clinton/Kaine AND McCain/Palin. “Correction: Aug. 8, 2020 An earlier version of this column incorrectly…

Trump mocks Black Lives Matter protests and mask-wearing in one fell swoop

Jesus Christ, this asshole. At yesterday’s coronavirus presser/super-spreader event in Bedminster, New Jersey, Donald Trump sarcastically referred to the WASPy weirdos in attendance as “peaceful protesters.” It was his way of excusing their flouting of social distancing and mask-wearing guidelines. Because he’s just that big of a prick. Huffington Post: At the news conference held…

Russia and China at Odds Over Trump, Iran Too.

It’s long been obvious that Putin favors Trump and wants to keep him in the White House where he can continue to destroy the United States, both because we’ve been blocking Russia’s ambitions and because Putin wants revenge for the breakup of the Soviet Union and other things we may or may not have done….

The hits keep coming: Trump mispronounces 'Thailand' as 'Thigh-land'

I see the Trump campaign’s mission to define Joe Biden as a senile master of malapropisms is proceeding apace. x Trump mispronounces Thailand as “Thighland” pic.twitter.com/PgTRnHpAA8— The Recount (@therecount) August 6, 2020 < p class=”is-empty-p”> TRUMP: “… shifting production to Thigh-land and to Vietnam, Thailand and Vietnam, two places that I like their leaders very much,…
