It all began with an innocent-enough tweet on Thursday, December 22. “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes [sic]” It continued with Kellyanne Conway appearing on Rachel Maddow’s show Thursday evening to tell us all that president-elect trump didn’t mean that he wanted to increase the number of nuclear weapons, but he didn’t not want to increase them, either. Then, in typical trump fashion, he spent the next morning making his apologist look like a fool (calling Mr. Gingrich?) by telling Mika Brzezinski “Let it be an arms race”Read More →

For the past 16 years or so, every time we get a new president, China tests them. With George W. Bush, it was by flying one of their fighters too close to one of our Navy aircraft, causing a collision, killing the Chinese pilot, and forcing the U.S. Navy to make an emergency landing in China in what has become known as the Hainan Island incident. The Navy personnel were captured by Chinese officials and held for 10 days until U.S. officials gave in to Chinese demands and apologized for colliding with the Chinese fighter jet (though officials later adamantly denied they ever apologized, andRead More →

Standing behind a green and red podium poster that read, “Merry Christmas, USA; Thank You Tour 2016”; president-elect donald trump told his fawning supporters that they were vicious and violent during the campaign, and they happily cheered to be told this, apparently forgetting that they were quite sanctimoniously outraged to have been characterized as violent during the campaign.   Meanwhile, in news that doesn’t matter… MTV has a show called Teen Mom OG, and it “stars” people in their 20s, and they are feuding.

However, they claim, the sophistication of the tools used to undertake the operation indicated that there were only two possible entities in Russia that could have carried it out. President-elect trump and his supporters seem to be the only ones who think the entire story is both fake and silly. source:   Meanwhile, in news that doesn’t matter…Read More →

During the campaign, Paul Ryan claimed that he would no longer support nor campaign for donald trump after audio tapes emerged in which trump bragged about sexually assaulting women and getting away with it because he’s famous. Paul Ryan was banking on trump losing, and hoping he could parlay his ethical stand into greater power should the GOP maintain the House of Representatives. But that’s notRead More →

“It’s three agencies of government when I get there that are gone – Commerce, Education and the um, what’s the third one there? Let’s see. Oh five – Commerce, Education and the um, um […].” This was the beginning of a quote that should have both haunted and ended Governor Rick Perry’s political career as he stood on a debate stage back in 2011 and failed to remember the third government agency he would eliminate as president. After some prodding by the moderator, Perry continued. “The third agency of government I would do away with – the education, the uh, the commerce and let’s see.” He thenRead More →

On Monday, December 12, trump announced he was postponing his news conference. His staff indicated that the delay was because trump is focusing on naming people to his administration.
