On Thursday morning, presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway (known as Chatterbox Con-artist by those who don’t quite love her as much as donald trump does) appeared on the Fox News morning-program-for-dipshits called Fox and Friends (See? Everyone’s friends who watches it. Yes! You! At home! You’re their buddies, too!). During her appearance, Chatterbox made the decision by Nordstrom to stop selling Ivanka trump’s crappy shit a point of contention. At the end of her appearance, Chatterbox said this: “Go buy Ivanka’s stuff, is what I would tell you. It’s a wonderful line. I own some of it. I fully — I’m going to just, I’m going toRead More →

  Today was a busy day in trumpland. Let’s get busy. After Iran tested a ballistic missile, trump national security advisor Michael Flynn said, “We are officially putting Iran on notice.” On notice for what? Going straight to bed without dessert? For nuclear retribution? Hacking their TV system and showing an endless marathon of Michael Bay movies? After voting to confirm Rex Tillerson, the ExxonMobil CEO, as Secretary of State, two Senate Republicans declared that Secretary of Education nominee Betsy DeVos wasn’t qualified enough to be confirmed. They made that statement without holding up the snark tag (/s) afterward to let us know they knewRead More →

“I don’t see this President-elect as a legitimate president.” On March 7, 1965, Congressman John Lewis was then just a young man making a name for himself in the Civil Rights Movement making his way across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, when armed state police officers fell upon his group of marchers and used their night sticks to crack Lewis’ skull open. Lewis continued on, and crossed the bridge. That was not the first, nor was it to be the last time that John Lewis would be violently assaulted for taking a stand for what he believed in. John Lewis’ willingness to putRead More →

Throughout history, presidents have always been judged by their words and by their actions, but that is about to change. Enter president-elect donald trump, who should be judged not by what he says or what he does, but by what’s in his heart, according to his consigliere, Kellyanne Conway. In the wake of trump predictably being unable to resist a famous person criticizing him, Conway appeared on CNN to complain, “Why is everything taken at face value? You can’t give him the benefit of the doubt on this and he’s telling you what was in his heart, you always want to go with what’s comeRead More →

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died February 13, 2016. On March 16, President Obama nominated Merrick Garland to fill Scalia’s vacant seat. At the time, Senate Republicans continued their then-7-year-long strategy of refusing to do their jobs. They decided it was better to sabotage the Supreme Court for 11 months and place their hopes in winning the White House and the ability to pick a right-wing justice to fill Scalia’s vacancy.

Many people are crediting the president-elect for shaming Republican lawmakers into rejecting their desire to eliminate ethical review, but we should not be so quick to give the president-elect credit for the decision. Here is what president-elect trump had to sayRead More →
