Someone wet-vac the McNugget sauce off Donald Trump’s adipose-cascading carcass and wake him up. GE has a message for him: Coal is over. You can stop lying about it now. The guy who once (in)famously said, “We've ended the war on beautiful, clean coal, and it's just been announced that a second, brand-new coal mine where they're…

Protesters are making noise outside of postmaster general's home

Who ever thought the postmaster general would become a lightning rod of controversy?

Making Mud Pies

Sort of lost in the President’s latest machinations, and wall bouncing, was the fact that Hillary Clinton was once again cleared of any charges of criminality on the issue of her infamous emails.  To put this matter to rest—finally, I wish the State Department and the FBI would issue a joint press release that reads:…
