unhingery continues in the White House aided by OAN and FoxNews

A desperate Trump is trying to signal to his armed followers like the boogaloo boys that something needs to be done to free Seattle from those “anarchists”. If disinformation can be naked it’s at least nude in Foxlandia. The ground truth is much different, but Trump wants that chaos to draw attention from his rising COVID-19…

House impeachment managers: We told you dumb*sses he was corrupt

(The headline is my own paraphrase, in case that wasn’t clear.) The House managers in Donald Trump’s impeachment trial — Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler, Zoe Lofgren, Hakeem Jeffries, Val Demings, Sylvia Garcia, and Jason Crow — just wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post in which they point out that Trump is just as lawless and corrupt…

WTF is wrong with the White House press corps?

On the one hand, this is a bizarre, inexplicable story.  On the other hand, it is probably the most revealing story about the failure and obsequiousness of the White House press. In short, looking to fuel their fantasy propaganda that the Covid pandemic is over, White House aides at Trump’s Rose Garden appearance today moved the…

Trump's White House presser “I know you better than you know yourself.”

Today’s presser had more Trump lies. Trump claimed that the numbers are now going down. They aren’t. The same press questions happened and Trump chose not to answer ones asking for specificity. Why can’t we get tested as easily as Trump.  He didn’t answer that question. Trump repeats his same bafflegab, making little sense when asked…

MI-06 & TX-10: DFA Helps These Two Progressive Democrats Expand The House Majority

Received this e-mail today from Democracy for America: Mike Siegel (D. TX-10) Jn this critical election year, it’s more important than ever that we protect and expand our Democratic majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Gohmert Blocks the House COVID-19 Bill

Louis Gohmert, America’s stupidest Congressman (which, given the competition, is saying something!) is single-handedly holding up the House from sending the COVID-19 relief package to the Senate. No doubt he’s doing it at Moscow Mitch’s behest, so Mitch doesn’t have to stall it there on his own. But his actions are making it even clearer…

As coronavirus rages, White House refuses to back down on proposed cuts to CDC

As the federal government’s own health officials warn that the novel coronavirus outbreak is bound to get worse, the Trump administration is refusing to amend its 2021 budget request, which seeks to slash Health and Human Services’ funding by $9.5 billion. The proposed cuts include a 15 percent ($1.2 billion) reduction in the CDC’s budget and a $35 million cut…
