Luckily, new analysis from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) spells out...

Donald Trump is ending his presidency the way he began it—as a squishy wad of id that just can’t get over how unfairly it’s been treated. Because he has the miasmic ego of a tyrant and the self-awareness of a prechewed legume, Trump is eschewing quiet reflection and self-recrimination in...

Sidney Powell, the cray-cray-kraken lawyer, has been pretty loose with her tongue when it comes to, you know, slander. And now, one of the entities she’s (allegedly) slandered over and over again is through playing nice. Axios: Dominion Voting Systems plans to sue attorney Sidney Powell “imminently” for defamation, and...

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. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, according to someone...

Among of the most predictable character traits of the Malignant Mangoface are these: He is petty, he hates being a loser, and he absolutely has to be the center of attention. All of these are prominent in his latest move against President-elect Joe Biden: Trump considering kicking off 2024 run...

It is the GOP white whale, a continuing trope, to loot the social security system by eliminating it, and Trump wanted no defections in 2020. It is a sign of desperation to step on what has been a third rail of recent decades and a more symbolic attack on the...

On the night of the now-infamous Emptysburg Address, I posted this tongue-in-cheek tweet: x I'm waiting for the “Puppet Show and Donald Trump” phase of Trump's campaign to start. Probably be in early October or so. pic.twitter.com/6676Do0YkI— Aldous J Pennyfarthing (@AJPennyfarthing) June 21, 2020 < p class=”is-empty-p”> Fans of the...

Received this e-mail today from Governor Steve Bullock’s (D. MT) U.S. Senate campaign: Steve Bullock (D. MT) Can you believe this? According to a new report from the Washington Post, Republicans in Washington are talking about making drastic changes to Social Security as part of their response to this pandemic. Let’s...

Mitt Romney is once again showing that it’s possible for a Republican to stand up to Trump and survive. The Hill reported about an hour ago that Romney is calling the newly revived Hunter Biden “investigation” out for what it is: a political stunt. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said on...

I’ve always loved Elizabeth Warren’s “I Have A Plan For That Motto” because it rings so true. Today, she unveils three new plans that cover three big issues. First, the Coronavirus: Warren’s plan has several provisions, starting with attempts to help people who need or will need medical attention. She wants...

Yeah, I’m fairly confident this is the goofiest shit you’re going to see and read today. (Second tweet) x Trump says he doesn't think global warming is a hoax (contradicting many of his past statements), then adds, “I want clear air, clean water” (which are not related to global warming)...
