The GOP has become the SLP: the Sore Losers Party

It started with the Big Lie — that there was so much rampant “voter fraud” in the 2020 presidential election that President Joe BIden didn’t really win, even though he did win by nearly 8 million votes. Republican after Republican repeated Donald Trump’s baseless claims about a “rigged” election. Many, including several sitting in the […]

Trump has ruined our inauguration celebration

It used to be that the people of the United States looked at presidential inaugurations with a sense of pride. But like just about everything else he touches, Donald Trump has broken that, too.

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.

Donald Trump is spending Christmas the way he has spent much of his presidency: tweeting, golfing, being lazy, and ignoring the hard work of being president while trying to destroy the efforts of leaders actually carving out policy.

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 […]

Trump has jumped off the QAnon cliff

If the latest wacko conspiracy theories aren’t enough for Donald Trump, don’t worry — he’ll just make up some new ones, this time involving Democrats in dark shadows and planes carrying protesting thugs. In an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, no stranger to conspiracy theories herself, Trump played his usual cards to distract the […]

How to overcome the danger that your vote won’t count

Donald Trump is trying to convince his base that mail-in voting — which he and most members of his administration use regularly — is somehow “rigged” and will delegitimize the results of November’s election. He’s even gone so far as to cast doubt on whether he would accept the election results. Never mind the fact […]
