Michael Cohen: 'I believe Trump does go to jail'

Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, knows the Trump crime family better than almost anyone. And, needless to say, he’s no longer impressed. After discussing his unlikely friendship with Rosie O’Donnell, who visited him in prison, Cohen told MSNBC’s Ari Melber he believes either Trump or a member of his family will eventually go…

New poll shows far more people think Trump is corrupt than believe Biden is

Donald Trump’s closing argument for another term boils down to … COVID isn’t such a big deal after all and Joe Biden is super-corrupt. Of course, Trump has long since locked down the delusional asshole vote, but a new poll suggests he’s failed to make inroads among members of the sane community. To wit: The latest Yahoo News/YouGov poll reveals…

Don't ever believe you're off camera in Zoom

Jeff Toobin would swear an oath on a stack of Bibles that he thought the video feed was off. Pro-tip: use the same technology that the Car Guys use for a “check engine” light – a piece of electrical tape. x The New Yorker has suspended the staff writer Jeffrey Toobin and is investigating an incident…

You will not believe this insane Trump campaign spin about the pr*sident's COVID

I thought I’d seen everything from this campaign, but “Donald Trump has firsthand experience with COVID-19 and Joe Biden doesn’t” has to be the wackiest political spin ever.  Trump campaign aid Erin Perrine was on Fox News recently and, man, these are some mental gymnastics. And not good ones. We’re not talking Simone Biles here. More like…

Trump won't like this Nancy Pelosi tweet, believe me

Ohmygod my eyes! Nancy Pelosi’s brilliance outshines the sun. x 6200. That could have been a Zoom meeting.

only moderates believe that being halfway to November 3 is important

So many believe that they are generally moderate or moderating because they cannot imagine themselves being so nonconforming that they cannot be sociable or civil in any situation. We are always conciliatory because we don’t really want to have someone tell us “DBAD”. We can support diversity up to and including that moment when that diversity…

I Can't Believe I'm Defending John Bolton

I rise (reluctantly) to Bolton’s defense here, against the many comments accusing him of being self-serving and wanting to know why he hasn’t spoken up way earlier. Bolton was the national security advisor, and as such remains under lifelong restrictions as to what he can say publicly. Without a subpoena, he could find himself in…

Trump appears to believe the wheel was an American invention

Am I baked?* Can this shit be real?  THIS. IS. THE. ACTUAL. PRESIDENT. OF. THE. UNITED. STATES! x In one minute today Trump managed to: – Say Elon Musk “does very good at rockets” – Imply Thomas Edinson is alive – Say the wheel was invented in America Such a massive embarrassment to our country….

“Does Donald Trump believe his own Cr*p”?

Remember that Finland is also under threat by Russia, but that may be giving too much credit to Trump, ranting during a presser with Finland’s President, who told Individual-1: “…you have here a great democracy. Keep it going” x President Trump, who spent the last few days cursing on Twitter, accusing people of treason, and suggesting the Dems’…
