The White House is even more screwed up than you can imagine

Bob Woodward’s new book on Trump, shown at bottom (click on screenshot to go to Amazon site) paints a picture of a White House even more dysfunctional and bizarre that our most rabid Trump-haters could imagine. First read the CNN article below, and then Woodward’s book, which is based on extensive research and lots of […]

John Sununu schools Alisyn Camerota of CNN

Here we have John H. Sununu, who must pose a dilemma for the Control-Left: he’s a conservative who was George W. Bush’s chief of staff (remember?), a Republican who’s taken some dreadful stands on stuff like the environment, and yet he’s also a Palestinian-Lebanese-American who was born in Cuba. I would guess that his ideology […]

Trump visits children’s hospital, colors American flag wrong

I am not generally in favor of nit-picking about Trump, like calling out his eating habits, attacking his wife for his own policies, and so on. But this is too rich to let pass. According to many sources, including the Independent (click on screenshot to see the video), President Trump (oh how I hate to […]

Trump on McCain’s death

There was no love lost between these men, including Trump’s ridiculous 2015 statement, with respect to McCain’s captivity in Vietnam, reported at Politico: “He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” Still, a little humanity is in order. Trump didn’t say anything when McCain […]

Trump gets even more insane

Have a look at these two tweets. I don’t need to comment. A large number of counts, ten, could not even be decided in the Paul Manafort case. Witch Hunt! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 22, 2018 and If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain […]

Trump live in West Virginia

Need a good cringe? Watch this: it’s got all the buzzwords. Right now he’s banging on about the “fake news” at CNN. I can’t say what I think of this man because this is a family-oriented website. h/t: Blue

Trump jumps the shark on energy, about to damage environment even more

According to a new report by CNN, Trump is heading to West Virginia today to celebrate the further dismantling of prudent environmental regulations. In this case the EPA is going to deregulate federal supervision of coal-fired electric plants, giving the regulations back to the states. Coal states will, of course, scrap those regulations as fast […]

NY Times publisher criticizes Trump’s freedom of speech while extolling free speech

I’m quite puzzled, but not all that surprised, by this unusual published statement by New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger. The publisher was invited to the White House for an “off the record” meeting with President Trump. Because Trump tweeted about it, though, Sulzberger rightly considered it now “on the record”, and issued the […]

Bush misremembered, Trump misspoke

Apparently Donald Trump has realized that he had to do some furious backpedaling after the fallout from his Helsinki remarks that he disagreed with the FBI about Russian meddling in the last Presidential election. An hour ago CNN posted this: President Trump moments ago said he misspoke during his Monday news conference with Russian President […]

I have no words: Trump sides with Putin over U.S. intelligence

UPDATE: Reader Simon sent me this statement in Business Insider from John McCain about Trump’s execrable behavior.  No matter what you think of McCain, he’s honest and frank here: “Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, […]
