Everybody’s favorite cultural caricatures came out from beneath their rocks because they have nothing to contribute while we wait for the final chapter in the Trump era.

Ted Cruz is becoming even further unhinged, as if there will be an insanity defense for sedition. Because he actually thinks he’s funny, like a Soup Nazi taking the gas pipe: Ok. No gasoline for you. (That includes jet fuel.) And what do you think film is made of? https://t.co/rVwYt7C5Ol...

You know, at this point I’d almost rather have a literal mob boss as president. At least they occasionally have some honor. The Washington Post: President Trump on Monday is expected to give Rep.

Some context: Donald Trump did not win reelection. Okay, onto the fucknuttery: x While presenting the Medal of Freedom to wrestler Dan Gable, Trump brags about Gable's record but then lies and says, “in politics, I won two. So I'm 2-0. And that's pretty good too.” (Trump lost the election...

Oh, Wisconsin. Just when I start to feel a little pride in my home state, you snatch it away from me. I grew out of the rich loam and manure of the Badger State, and I encountered many a beer-spattered, fromage-festooned troglodyte along the way, so this doesn’t really surprise me...
