GOP: Champion of States’ Rights, Except When They’re Not

We are intellectually exhausted. Either that or, as they say, not paying attention. Any new Trumpian outrage or corruption investigation is simply another teardrop in an ocean of patriotic discouragement and fear for our country. Few are listening anymore as… Continue Reading →

Sharpie-Gate: Trump Is the “Scarface” of Presidents

Mr. President, did you draw the black Sharpie half-circle on the weather service map to cover up your earlier tweet-mistake that “Alabama will most likely be hit (much) harder [by Hurricane Dorian] than anticipated”? And did you order your chief… Continue Reading →

It’s Literal: Trump Shoots Someone on Fifth Avenue, Loses No Voters

Last Monday, President Trump exited the front of Trump Tower with a Lady Bushmaster semiautomatic pistol borrowed from his daughter Ivanka. He insulted the doorman on his way out, stating the guy’s hair looked fake, then stepped into the middle… Continue Reading →

MAGA Christians Can Never Again Argue Character Matters

Donald, the conning salesman, launched a full-blown infomercial to pitch his Miami resort for 2020’s G7 summit. The only thing missing was the PowerPoint presentation and the timeshare hard sell after dinner when you and your spouse try to escape… Continue Reading →

“There’s Never Been a President Like President Trump” (— DJT)

The irony of this self-admission is almost too overwhelming to take in. It’s like seeing the northern lights or Grand Canyon for the first time. The juxtaposition of universal vastness and personal smallness takes your breath away. In this case,… Continue Reading →

Dog Bites Man: Gun Violence Won’t Change Under Trump’s GOP

Much of the El Paso shooter’s online diatribe tracks closely with language President Trump has used since he launched his first campaign in 2015. Many observers submit that if you delete the blatant references to killing, Trump’s and the shooter’s… Continue Reading →

“Rat AND Rodent Infested Mess”

“I Hope This Is Not the New Normal — but I Fear It Is”

GOP: All Truth Is Deniable

“Go back where you came from” is one of THE most well-known racist things someone can say to members of a minority group. There is nary a teenager alive in America who doesn’t know this. But most Republicans are denying… Continue Reading →

Mad About Trump

If the phrase “end of an era” ever meant anything, this is it: As of October 2019, iconic “Mad” magazine will no longer produce new content after 67 years of publishing cutting-edge sardonic, sarcastic, satiric social commentary and plain old… Continue Reading →
