Trump finally got his ‘American carnage’

In his inaugural address in January 2017, Donald Trump promised to end “American carnage.” As his (thankfully single) term in office is about to end, he finally figured out a way to get his deranged followers to deliver that carnage.

You lost, Trump. Get over it and step aside.

America is ready to change the channel on Trump

The Donald Trump show has jumped the shark. After four years of watching Trump in his natural habitat of bad TV, U.S. voters are ready to tell him that his show is canceled. Yes, it’s still possible that Trump might win the election on Nov. 3, which is now less than three weeks away. Possible, […]

How does the $750 tax man spend $70,000 on that hair?

The bombshell story from The New York Times on Donald Trump’s taxes is filled with appalling revelations about tax avoidance, likely tax fraud, dodgy deductions, failed businesses, vast write-offs, infusions of questionable foreign funds, and much, much more. But the item that most struck me was the report of how much he spent on his […]
