It’s difficult to conceptualize just how prevalent the “Blue Lives Matter” movement has become in America despite lacking the same fundamental rationality as other adjacent social revolutions. In the wild, we see glorious blue flora bloom, an array of differently blue hued fauna swim, fly, and dash around on our...

I’m not in a jovial mood today. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed … because my bed is still in America. If it straddled the U.S.-Canada border, I might have had a puncher’s chance—but no. I had to wake up here—in the land of the mask-free, gun-obsessed asshole....

Everyone is screaming over Trump’s absolute indifference to the safety of the Secret Service agents sworn to protect him at their risk of the own lives. The speculation is that he needed the adulation of his supporters, or that he wanted to keep the campaign momentum going, or that he...

Low-Energy Don opened his lie-hole today and the grody innards of a Hieronymus Bosch painting spilled out. While his lies and misrepresentations weren’t as effervescent as usual, they were still pretty outrageous.

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:...

Trump hasn’t yet reached his personal Vietnam death toll numbers, because bone spurs. The GOP will parse his numbers because somehow Democrats are to blame, what with all the stress of impeachment and all those conspiracy theories. This assumes that we believe all that disinforming gaslight and malarkey incessantly repeated...

Will Trump fire Dr. Fauci this week. More importantly will Trump even acknowledge the death toll other than saying “it’s a bad week” and babble some happy talk. He will promote the debut of a economic reopening council only to divert attention to the now 22,000 deaths. President Trump’s trade...
