      Trump is simply too weak to stand up to the Saudis — or Putin. Hell, he’s too much of a weakling to fire his own staff. What a blowhard. As you read this horrific story, be sure to remember Pompeo’s effusive participation in that brief meeting with the king, Nauert’s grinning face in the tourist […]

Woot! Less than 600 unique page hits to 13 MILLION!

Contrary to popular opinion, I didn’t create a robotic finger that keeps reloading the page. Someone actually reads this stuff. And if you are one of those someones, thank you very much for making it fun to come here and write something (nearly) every day.

Now is the time to pay up.


Just kidding.


Ok, hear me out, Trumpers, I’ve seen the poll numbers, there are a lot of you who are sticking with Trump to the bitter end over the Mueller investigation. And I get that (actually I don’t but work with me here). You’re tired of hearing about collusion, collusion, collusion. It’s one of those SAT words that no one ever used in a sentence until last year. Like emoluments. Come on, admit it, you thought it was a skin care product, right? I know I did. It sounded like something a lanolin rich soap would give your skin. Ha! Were we wrong.

Anyway, the Mueller thing is getting annoying because the dude is so damn secretive and we haven’t seen anything yet and it just looks like the Democrats are colluding with the FBI to bring Trump down. Trump can’t catch a break. (Well mostly because he does such stupid things but I digress).

Now his lawyer is being harassed and so what if people are paying Cohen large sums of money for access. That just makes those corporations suckers.

But what if that access just made your cable bill go up while simultaneously restricting your access to all the movies you want to stream unless Netflix pays up to get into your house faster than the cable package lineup?

Have you seen THIS??:

Yeah, collusion with the Russians is one thing. Taking a bribe from a cable company to kill net neutrality and promote your merger to reduce your cable choices is hlike dealing with the devil.

And we haven’t even started on Novartis who wants to make sure that no one drags it to the negotiating table over drug prices to large government healthcare providers like the VA or Medicare or Medicaid.

How are you going to feel when it turns out that all that money was paid to Donald Trump and his buddies in the Republican Party to soak you for more money in cable/internet service and life saving drugs? That’s a bad that you’re going to share with the libtards.

I’m really looking forward to seeing what those polls look like in a few weeks as Michael Avenatti keeps parting the kimono.

  1. Thank you for giving us this platform, and for me in particular to vent and share my thoughts which I do liberally, 🙂

    I like reading your posts and gems like this: Like emoluments. Come on, admit it, you thought it was a skin care product, right? I know I did. and, no you didn’t. Trivia: in Indian English parlance, everybody back home who works uses the word ’emoluments’ to mean (legal) benefits/perks that come with a job.

    and this: as Michael Avenatti keeps parting the kimono. LOL! I just hope he is not in anyway vulnerable to attacks from the media and others.

    • ROTF!! I’m not kidding. The first time I saw emoluments, it immediately conjured up Palmolive dishwashing liquid and lanolin soap. My mental elves get giddy over the dumbest things.

  2. The first two questions should land trump in a world of trouble.

  3. This is the other eye-popping thing: $12K vs. $100K. This is not legal, this is not normal. And if any of this was funneled to trump (can you imagine him foregoing any of this moneys?), we should demand that he resign or impeached.

  4. And Israel is chomping (or champing) at the bit.

  5. This is true. Can you imagine him allowing someone unknown to him making money off his name and position?

  6. I hope Mueller indicts this mfer before they (attempt to) do things like impeaching Rosenstein.

  7. Like Boss, like Staff, all around despicable.
