We Can Add "Convicted Criminal" To His CV



Oh, he's probably going to get an even shorter sentence than Michael Cohen, and it might even be in the same Club Fed, but it still means his history and obituary will include a guilty verdict.

Have a good weekend.

A Tale Of Two Hearings



They STILL can't get enough of him.

But they still aren't a majority. Not that I like to cite David Frum, but credit where it's due and when he's right.

Still A Puppet



And we know who's pulling the strings (hint: rhymes with Plaid Vutin).

Three Day Weekend

Back tomorrow. Hope you had/are having a nice holiday.

Little Man Shakes Tiny Fist...Again



Sorry for recycling a picture so quickly, but it's Friday, it's been a long week...and besides, Trump was even more psychotic than usual today. His tiny fist got quite the shake.

Have a good weekend.

Sort Of Like Koppel's First TV Show...



Only instead of America Held Hostage, it's Ukraine...and Trump's the hostage taker.

Makes you feel good to be an American, no?

Christ.

Toxic Republicanism Is Nothing New



You can go back further than Mitt or, Newt, and Trump is the just the tip of the toxic iceberg.

Reagan's alleged geniality didn't really mask his condescending attitude towards towards people of color, or the libs, Nixon's on tape ranting about, East Coast and/or Jewish elites (oh, and Saint Ronnie dropped one on Africa in a recently released recording). Goldwater might have personally been more or less honorable, but in his time the Birchers and Joe McCarthy -- and Roy Cohn -- were only the latest Red Baiters stretching back to before the New Deal, which itself is an object of hatred.

So let's not make Trump unique...and let's not pretend it ends with him.

But at the same time, it's some comfort, modest as it might be, to see the public might finally be getting tired of someone who puts the Id into Idiot.

And a media that's so afraid of calling it out that they've become witting or unwitting accomplices in a sorry exercise that's gone on for generations...

"Strange Parallel Universe"



Like, just maybe, a universe where Trump was exposed for the fraud he is?

If only...

Florida Man



True, not my best work, but it's been another long week, I'm tired, and Blogger's had problems loading images anyway.

Have a good weekend.

Photoshopping inspired by this and this.

Florida suits him, I think.

Yet Another "It's A Cult" Post



The latest on, well, pretty much everything DJT is...his cult still believes. Nothing will sway them.

But, if the World Series crowd is any indication, the cult isn't exactly the people...no matter how many diners the Cletus Safari NY Times correspondents visit...

Does He Look Like A Guy With A Plan?



But, as others pointed out today, it speaks volumes that DJT can go to Chicago and spit on the city, can babble like a 9 year old about Baghdadi...but the punditry is concerned about whether the baseball fans were sufficiently civil...

Lèse-Majesté



Even as it becomes ever more apparent that DJT isn't just a shakedown creep -- he's a crude, cut rate one -- his lawyers insist he mustn't be touched. It would be an affront on his dignity (well, given that he doesn't have any, kind of a moot point, no?).

Gee, I think Bill Clinton might have found that a useful defense...

Meet Pierre Delecto



No Photoshopping today, but couldn't pass this story up.

Also, too

The Free Market



On second thought, maybe they should change the name from Free Market to something a little more realistic. Like Santa Claus. Or The Easter Bunny.

Have a good weekend.

Another "Democrats, Your GOP Heroes Won't Save You" Post



Consider the sheet volume of lies, sleaze, and degradation. Then, consider that not only are die hard MAGAts -- gee -- still die hard MAGAts (one's running for governor here as a proud Trumpeter/MAGAt), but that the best you'll get from the allegedly librul media is this lukewarm mush over soggy milquetoast.

There. Are. No. MAGAts. With. Principles.

And Trump/MAGA is now the GOP.

Just saying.

Monday, October 14, 2019

With Friends Like These...



Christ, I only depict DJT as a megalomaniacal creep who needs to be impeached and/or voted out of office.

His supporters show him as a rage filled, sociopathic mass murderer.

Shit.

And...



Let the shunning begin.

Have a good weekend.

Soon To Be Thrown Under A Bus Near Trump



Couldn't happen to a more deserving hack...

Did The Kurds Stick With Us At Normandy?



At this point of course Trump could claim he stormed the beaches on D-Day, roughly two years before his (unfortunate) birth.

And of course his core supporters would go along. They're a cult, and Trump's message is that of a cult leader. Truth, in any objective sense, is meaningless. It's whatever DJT says.

Toxic doesn't begin to describe. Oh, and thanks, major media, for enabling this...for generations now. Hope getting played was worth the access.

The Downward Spiral



And to repeat for the I don't know how many nth time, it's not just DJT himself. The entire GOP has devolved into...well, a hideous creature that could only resemble Orange Narcissus.

He's not the single bad apple. The entire bunch is rotten.

Monday, October 07, 2019

Executive Time



He's always nuts, but lately more so than usual.

Thursday, October 03, 2019

He's Informing On Himself Now



Classic case of someone who thinks he's above the law by definition.

And he IS above the law unless the law does something (hint: rhymes with win-teach).

Wednesday, October 02, 2019

POTUS



I don't know what's worse -- that DJT is clearly a nut, or that he still has the support of something like a third of the country, and most of the GOP political elite.

One Can Hope



Are the walls closing in? Guess we'll find out.

Would be nicer still if the small room was called a cell and had bars on one side. But I'll take humiliation and disgrace as a consolation.

Of course, it depends on how the Democrats handle this...and that's never a comforting notion.

Have a good weekend.

American Red State Gothic



Just a reminder now that the lines are being drawn -- and again, you can forget ANY Repug support for impeachment, even with the most favorable accounting of Trump's phone calling being damning in the extreme -- anyway, just a reminder that allegedly rural, Red State, 'real' America of diners and MAGA baseball hats have gone all in with...who? A New York City real-estate dealer. And his equally New York City personal attorney.

No, you can't reason with them, or appeal to their better instincts...

Just saying.

Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Finally...Perhaps



And no, Trump won't get convicted unless the smoking gun is still in his stubby-fingered hands and even then it would be a stretch.

But if the Dems don't fuck up the inquiry -- emphasis on "if" -- they can start to reverse the lunatic trends that got us here in the first place.

IF they don't fuck it up...

Republican Heroes Aren't Going To Save You



Again, DJT et al double down, project outward, pretend they care about corruption and dare, double-dare, and double-dog-dare Democrats to fight...knowing the Democratic Leadership will wimp out.

Sad.

I swear, the Dem upper tier must think they need explicit permission from their GOP hero  daddies to do anything...

With one exception. Pelosi never passes up a chance to take a swipe at AOC, Omar, Pressley, Tlaib, or collectively, The Squad.

Wow.

Smart Phone, Dumb President



It's back in the headlines, but for a while the highly credible accusation of DJT's mind-numbingly dumb comments were eclipsed by...Justin Trudeau.

Lord, or should I say Mon Dieu?

This is exactly the sort of lunacy the corporate media can't or won't correct. To cite another example, idiot president's whining about alleged untreated San Francisco municipal waste...one, it's a lie, two, it's from an administration that's suing California over their more stringent automotive emission standards.

It's hard to not come to the conclusion that...we're fucked.

He's Still Bluffing



Another busy week so another recycled photo, but I'm sitting here watching -- of course -- librul MSNBC. They're talking about the DNI refusal to refer a whistleblower complaint to Congress as required by law.

Jeez -- c'mon, Democrats. Yeah, the evidence will be overwhelming, but you still have to push. Team Trump isn't going to self-impeach. Look at his latest stunt.

He's still bluffing...

Waffling only enables him further. Casual/low information voters view this as weakness.

Trump's opposition is doing more to enable him than his fellow grifting allies...

And In This Corner...



I heard Lewandowski's hearing ended on a more positive note for Democrats, though at least a few Twitter feeds pointed out it was after 6 pm.

Pathetic.

Yeah, minds are mostly made up, but watching Dems flail/flounder isn't the sort of message I'd want to send. And casual voters won't be impressed.

Post Debate Thread



Here's my take: didn't watch it, and it doesn't matter this early in the race. Besides, the Democratic candidate is running against this clown. Whoever gets nominated will have my vote. Sure, I've got preferences, but it doesn't matter.

Trump must be voted out.

Have a good weekend.

It's Not Just Trump, An Ongoing Series



The latest is North Carolina, but everywhere it's the same thing. Trump is causing the entire enterprise to rot...

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

All Your Base



If it wasn't already clear, yesterday's special election in North Carolina's 9th District spelled it out. There are no swing voters, there are no Reagan Democrats to appeal to by going all moderate. The upcoming election is base versus base. So, Dems...come up with something that appeals to your base, like, oh, I don't know, opposing Trump with everything you've got.

You might even win.
