From the sublime to the ridiculous, Democrats ready to yield the stage to Donnie’s clown show

Oval Office Occupant 45, Daffy Donald Trump, complained last week on Twitter, “Biden’s DNC Speech Was ‘Just Words.’ ” But Daffy, they were beautiful words, expressed in f’n’ COMPLETE SENTENCES! Meanwhile, to confuse and rattle the asterisk pre*ident: Addressing virtual delegates at the Democratic Party National Convention last week, former President Barack Obama said: “I […]

As the outrages pile up, the Empire State strikes back

Oval Office Occupant Donald Trump is a lying, cheating, thieving, racist, traitorous, vile, backstabbing, miserable son of a bitch. And those are his good traits. His insidious war on highly respected (by other than Trump and his worshippers) Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, is another of his “shoot the messenger” tantrums. […]

Racism, carved in stone

By having his personal Fourth of July at Mount Rushmore, Donald Trump seems to have demonstrated a predilection to celebrate himself at public venues connected to racism. Two of the four presidents on the mountain were slaveholders, and all of them are viewed by Native Americans as racist. Trump’s July 3 South Dakota visit was  […]

How to tell the president, ‘you’re fired’

Shortly after the end of the Civil War, a reader of The Nation magazine suggested that after the swearing in of a new president, the outgoing one be immediately shot. The idea was to keep the deceased fellow from meddling and criticizing from afar. As I remember, the Supreme Court chief justice would do the […]

A scared POTUS who is merely afraid and alone

It was one of the most unusual speeches in recent presidential history. As police deployed tear gas on protesters Monday, just outside the White House, Donald Trump vowed harsher action against protesters. He called governors across the country “cowards.” During a governors conference call, he demanded that they crack down hard on violent protesters in […]

The Big Twit tweets on and on

When Donald Trump wrote a tweet wishing everyone a “HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY,” he was using a phrase not usually associated with the national holiday honoring soldiers who died serving our country. Only a despicable ignorant ass could F-up the day. And, he is that ass. Yuuugely! Not only was he playing golf while the number […]

Corrupt and dumb: The King’s Court reflects its master

Is everyone even remotely connected to Donald Trump infected with Terminal Dumb Ass? Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, senior White House adviser and a man who is obviously constitutionally challenged, recently refused to rule out the possibility of postponing the November presidential election. Say, what the f##k? “Kushner’s statement reveals amazing ignorance of the Constitution […]

A Trump lexicon: All the best words

It’s not like Donald Trump has given us nothing. In fact he’s greatly enriched our vocabulary, with new words and phrases like yuge, bigly, covfefe, fire and fury, foistered, infantroopen (infantryman badge), heroilynn (heroin), susbesdig, deligitimatize, resaption, pivittible, and many, many more. They’re all Trumpisms, if you will, and thanks to Trump, they’re all unique […]

Cadet Bone Spurs finally gets his war

Our draft dodging, cowardly Hitler wannabe “Bone Spurs,” Donnie Trump has finally gotten us into the war that political writers warned us about in 2016. Top military commander Qasem Soleimani was killed during a Trump ordered air strike at Baghdad airport early Friday, Iraq time. Soleimani, who was widely seen as the second most powerful […]

Four more years could destroy us

Donald John Trump will soon be issuing a 2020 new year message. It should read: The White House Washington, D.C. January 1, 2020 Dear Mr. Secretary, I hereby resign the Office of the President of the United States. Sincerely, Donald J. Trump The Honorable Mike Pompeo, The Secretary of State, Washington, D.C. 20520 At the […]
