Will Michael Cohen get AMI criminally charged? Enquiring minds want to...

I’ve said for a long time now that Donald Trump is the anti-Midas, everything he touches turns to shit. But it’s starting to look like if you spend enough time in close contact with him, it starts to rub off. Michael Cohen is a hot mess. He’s already embroiled Trump in the Stormy Daniels controversy, […]

A glimmer of hope for separated immigrant families. Help is on...

This has been a week of immeasurable heartbreak, angst, and outrage. Make no mistake, the Trump family separation policy was working exactly as intended, and was only braked when outrage nationally as well as in congress at the intended outcome became too intense. Late in the week came a feel good story of charity and hope, […]

Is Jeff Sessions’ SOS to the DOJ for JAG’s illegal?

The question is not rhetorical. I am not a lawyer, and I’d really appreciate anybody with legal expertise who can answer the question I’m going to lay out in the comments. Rachel Maddow broke the news last night that Jeff Sessions’ DOJ had petitioned the Defense Department to provide 21 Judge Advocate Generals, or JAG’s, military […]

“The Art of the Steal.” Trump is leaving the GOP nothing...

“I alone can fix this!” Trump is right, he alone can fix something nobody else in the GOP was interested in tinkering with because it wasn’t broken in the first place. And what he may be fixing right now is their last meal before the 2018 midterms. For the purposes of this little fireside chat, forget the […]

Did Trump just start shedding his vaunted “base?” Hear me out...

Ever since the campaign, at one time or another we have claimed the “bridge too far” moment in what Trump has said and done, and been proven wrong every time. Along the way, most of us resigned ourselves that there was an unshakable base of 35-40% that would follow him to the gates of hell. […]

An executive Order won’t fix this. The damage is already done.

I’ll admit it, I like GOP strategist Mike Murphy on MSNBC. Like Steve Schmidt and Rick Wilson, he is not fan of Trump. But unlike the other two, Murphy doesn’t get emotional or derisive about Trump, instead he is dispassionate, and looks at Trump’s antics through the lens of political outcome. Mike Murphy was on […]

Trump did what I thought was impossible. He found a way...

Hop into your wayback machine, and set the date to March, or April, or May of 2016. What was every liberal, and progressive, and pretty much anybody with an IQ higher than the temperature reading in their freezer bitching about? Trump of course. Specifically the almost loving fetish that the media had with every breath […]

Keep this ONE fact in mind when you look at polling...

The first poll results on Trump’s aggressive child separation policy is in, and it’s bad news for Republicans, especially heading into the November elections. But when you apply a little logic to the numbers, it looks even worse. CNN just released a poll showing that only 28% of Americans overall approve of the policy, while […]

Breaking: First lawsuit filed on Trump child separation policy.

MSNBC just broke the story that the first lawsuit has been filed over Trump’s abhorrent child separation policy in federal court. A Guatamalan woman filed the suit. Basically, she came over the border, seeking asylum in the united States. She was detained, and her 7 year old son was taken from her. On last Friday, […]

What to do when you violate human rights? If you’re Trump,...

One thing you gotta say about The $1 Store Caligula, he’s decisive. When other countries and organizations gave previous, wimpier Presidents a ration of shit about something they did, those little wienies responded by sitting shaking in their chairs, and trying to explain themselves. Not His Lowness, so much as sneeze in his direction, and […]
