Trump is lying about his ‘greatest and biggest’ trade deal, of course

The man lies about everything, all the time. You can save yourself some time by assuming that everything that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth is a lie. His declaration that a new trade deal with China is the “greatest and biggest deal ever made for our Great Patriot Farmers in the history of our Country,” in addition to being a dead ringer for North Korean state television rhetoric, is the latest example. There isn’t a deal, for starters. Nothing has been signed, and it’s unclear it ever will be.…

Only 28% of Americans still oppose marriage equality. Who cares if Elizabeth Warren offends them?

Guys, did you know Republicans are upset at her response? “It’s insulting,” said Ari Fleischer, the former spokesman for President George W. Bush. “The notion that there is only one thought that is acceptable, and if you don’t hold it there is no one on earth who should find you attractive, is insulting and demeaning.”  That’s a thing a Republican said, and a Bush Republican at that! A guy whose entire job for years was claiming you were un-American for opposing Bush’s endless wars. Also, conservative men genuinely can’t get dates.  But that’s a…

McConnell won’t promise ‘furious Republicans’ a Turkey sanctions vote

Mitch McConnell While “furious Republicans” say they will rebuke Donald Trump over the Syria debacle, the one person with the power to allow or block that congressional rebuke remains relatively mum. Since making a single statement a week ago that “A precipitous withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria would only benefit Russia, Iran, and the Assad regime,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hasn’t had much to say. He added that the withdrawal “would increase the risk that ISIS and other terrorist groups regroup.” All of which is precisely what has…

Raging reaction to disturbing Trump video from elected officials, activists, and the ‘targets’

Over the weekend, an absolutely vile video began to circulate online. It was a meme video taken from a gruesome scene in the movie Kingsman depicting Donald Trump inside a church using a gun to systematically murder journalists and political foes like Kathy Griffin, and even pistol-whipping former Sen. John McCain. With media logos covering the faces of targets, the fake video shows Donald Trump murdering CNN, BuzzFeed, CBS, The Washington Post, and many others. There’s even a moment where Trump smashes Barack Obama’s face into a pulpit. Equally as troubling is the fact the video aired at a conservative event hosted by American…

Former U.S. general rages: ‘There is blood on Trump’s hands for abandoning our Kurdish allies’

Serious people make well-thought-out decisions. Since Donald Trump ordered the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from northern Syria, media outlets have turned to politicians and military strategists to break down exactly what it all means—and all of it is bad news. The real-life ramifications of Trump’s ineptitude are having dire consequences. In short, with a weak-minded president like Trump, world leaders are willing to call his bluff. His international diplomacy as been exposed for what it is: bluff, bluster, and blunders. Everything about Donald Trump is a bluff. The former commander of American forces in Afghanistan and former…

Trump spends morning defending genocide, attacking critics, and plugging Dancing With The Stars

With the genocide of the United States’ longtime Kurdish allies well underway, and as the impeachment inquiry into his alleged quid pro quo offer to Ukraine chugging along, Donald Trump had a busy Monday morning, tweeting away in defense of his crimes (against both humanity and the law).  Naturally, with horrifying reports of bloodshed and destruction pouring out of Syria, Trump’s first concern was to pretend that he didn’t withhold military aid to Ukraine in exchange for dirt on a political rival. So he kicked off his day by quoting a right-wing “news” organization known…

Trump’s scramble to pull back U.S. troops may allow dozens of ‘high value’ ISIS prisoners to escape

Syrian border town of Ras al-Ain, Oct. 12, 2019 The Turkish invasion of northern Syria and the subsequent Trump decision to cut and run from the area may now result in the escape of “about five dozen” previously captured high-value ISIS members. That’s according to The New York Times, which reports that, despite Donald Trump lying his ass off on the subject, only two of the most dangerous detainees were moved out of Syria before Trump ordered the U.S. military retreat. The rest are still in Kurdish-region prisons. Five prisoners had…

A couple of notable figures attending this fun-filled conference? Donald Trump Jr., and Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Both denied having seen the video, with Huckabee Sanders claiming…
