In case you didn’t already know that Ron DeSantis is an awful, Hardee’s grease trap of a human being, the following eye-opening revelations about the country’s foremost COVID-19 superspreader are bound to disabuse you of any notion that he's got a soft spot—unless you’re talking about his wee cartilaginous skull. Seems he’s...

Yesterday we got a full accounting of the cowardice of the Republican Party. If even half of these craven cockwaffles had been around in 1941, we’d all be eating sushi and playing Nintendo. Or, um, doing more of that, anyway. Also karaoke. Marginally more karaoke. But we’d be paying for it...

This had to happen, because I have not laughed nearly enough about Trump’s feckless fraud fucknuttery quite yet. They found fraud! Near Philly! A fake vote for … Donald Trump! x Is this our first documented case of an actual ballot cast in the name of a verified dead person in the...

Yeah, yeah, I know they’re two people, but Trump won it once, too, and he wasn’t a “person” so much as an irredeemable asshole. CNN: Time magazine has named Joe Biden and Kamala Harris 2020's Person of the Year. The two made history on November 7 when they beat Donald...

In other GOP nonsense, Trump is spending time in battleground states trying to get airport rallies to substitute for Tulsa-like covid-spreader events. But the marginal stories are the ones that a desperate Trump is trying to give air, as if that will compensate for losing pretty much everywhere. Trump congratulating...

Personally, I think Dora the Explorer is a little too advanced for Trump. I see him more as a Teletubby kind of guy. Or as a Teletubby. A brand-new orange one. With a railroad spike sticking out of his head.    x By @FallonTonight— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) July 24, 2020...

Donald Trump sees fraud everywhere because he is, at root, a fraud. Cheaters always suspect their significant others of cheating. Thieves worry about getting ripped off. Con men think everyone else is a grifter, too. Liars think no one in the universe is fundamentally honest. This is just how psychopaths roll....

As a native Wisconsinite who’s fled that Trumpian wasteland for greener pastures on the Left Coast, I can attest that Badgers don’t need much of an excuse to hit the bars. Do people in wedding parties go bar-hopping between the ceremony and the reception in other states? Do they? Well,...

Today’s Trump presser had a couple of lies today, which seems normal as he’s become rehearsed with his excuses and his usual projection. However he’s continuing to attack the WHO to draw blame from his 70 days of delay and denial, leading to the February and March COVID-19 spread in...

With all due respect to Pete Wehner, an evangelical Christian, former George W. Bush White House aide, and the author of the above quote, this analogy undersells Donald Trump’s depravity by a damn stretch. A person born blind would surely be curious about what color is. Further, he or she wouldn’t scorn...

I was interested in just who Jay Sekulow is.   I found out he is a very busy man.   He is so busy that he is the perfect person that Trump would have picked to be Chief Council.   He is an entertainer, an activist and reported to be one of the...

Weird that the GOP defense could wind up: “I did it, so what – get over it” Idiotic that Individual-1 is trying with the help of his GOP buddies, to make impeachment into reality-TV kayfabe.
