Unbelievable, Trump. Really? A pedophile?

Donald takes the word of a pedophile that he didn’t do any of the horrid things attributed to him while at the same time calling the sleaze ball’s opponent, a man who prosecuted and convicted two of the KKK members who helped to blow up the Birmingham Church in 1963 and killed four little girls …

Rocks have more good sense

After facing criticism for not calling the families of four soldiers who died in combat, President Trump reached out to one of the widows Tuesday and said her husband “knew what he signed up for … but when it happens it hurts anyway,” according to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.). The call between Trump and Myeshia …

Sucks to be you, poor women

The Trump Administration just expanded the range of employers who can claim exemptions from the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that birth control be made available as part of any insurance policy. This latest rewriting of the federal policy, in an interim final rule that takes effect immediately, broadens the entities that may claim religious objections …

Trumpian excess

Every day in every way imaginable this man embarrasses the United States, its citizens, and even himself (if he had the capacity to realize it). His performance in Puerto Rico today was appalling. “Every death is a horror, but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you look at the tremendous — …

Dr. Strangelove has orange skin

Whither DACA?

The Internet seems to think Trump will announce Tuesday that all those people known as Dreamers, who were brought to America as children, will be deported. There may be a six-month delay before the actual expulsions begin in order to give Congress time to craft a law to validate their immigration status, it’s reported, but …

“Have a good time!”

Trump has no capacity for empathy, no understanding of people’s hardships, and no brains to figure out that since he has neither of those things he shouldn’t put himself in positions where they’re needed. He went to Texas today and met some real victims of the hurricane rather than just officials as he did last …

Trump’s Million

Trump pledges one million dollars of “personal money” to Harvey relief. Now, maybe he’s sincere. I note that millions of Americans have felt no need to publicize their donations to the American Red Cross, the Houston Food Bank or any other charity, but hey, when public figures make a big splashy donation others might be …

Pardon me?

Arpaio didn’t just let an order by a federal judge slip his mind. No, he deliberately violated it. Repeatedly. Specifically, Arpaio was convicted this July by Judge Susan Bolton of willfully and intentionally violating an order issued to him in 2011 by a different federal judge, G. Murray Snow. [snip] Snow issued a preliminary injunction …

Lies in the desert

Trump’s nonsensical speech at his rally in Phoenix could have been titled that. What lies could I mean? Well, Trump expressed frustration with efforts to negotiate with Canada and Mexico to improve NAFTA, saying he was more likely to terminate the deal. He also blamed “obstructionist Democrats” for standing in the way of funding for …
