Inside Job – MAGA Leader Says GOP Reps Biggs, Brooks and Gosar Helped Plan Insurrection

As Republicans grapple with purging their own deplorables, three new GOPers are identified as helping to plan the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. All three are House Congressional Republicans -- two from Arizona: Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar, and Mo Brooks from Alabama. The Washington Post reports today that all three lawmakers have been named as complicit in last week's deadly riot in a now-deleted Twitter video (that still lives here) made by a…

Orignal Cartoon - Trump departure by Tom Janssen, The Netherlands
Melania’s Feelings Are Hurt, Twitter Says I Really Don’t Care Do U?

After five days of silence Melania Trump issued a whiney, plagiarized statement about the January 6 Capitol riot, ignoring her husband's role as ring leader and saying people are being mean to her. Twitter yawned and said, I really don't care do U? Yesterday's tone-deaf statement, heavily plagiarized from one of her earlier speeches, completely misjudges the mood of the country. Shocker. The not-for-much-longer First Lady condemned last week's violence without addressing its cause (her…

All the Best Political Cartoons from a Horrendous and Monumental Week
All the Best Political Cartoons from a Horrendous and Monumental Week

I don't normally submit a post with my round-ups of the week's best political cartoons, but this is an exceptional week -- and not in a good way aside from Democrats capturing two Georgia Senate seats. Due to the sheer number of monumental events we witnessed as a nation this week, political cartoonists worked overtime producing an unprecedented number of illustrations serving as commentary on the week. I culled very few from my subscription service…

Who will be Washington's Top Assling After Trump's Eviction, Josh Hawley or Ted Cruz?
Who Will Be Washington’s Top Jackass After Trump’s Eviction?

With only 12 days until Donald Trump's eviction (unless he's impeached first) one big question is who will replace him as Washington's Top Assling when he's gone? Yes I am binging The New Kingdom while watching Democracy burn, and also noticing Republican Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz are locked in a tight race to carry the mantle as Top Turd. Trump, Hawley and Cruz are now all pariahs, all given ownership to Wedneday's Insurrection…

MAGA Rioters wanted by D.C. Police as "Persons of Interest"
In Ultimate Darwinian Move, MAGA Insurgents Help Police ID Them by Shunning Masks, Posting to Social Media

Twenty-four hours after storming the Capitol in Trump's failed coup, MAGA foot soldiers are being identified for their crimes by citizen sleuths based on a growing collection of photos from the insurgency. The Metro Police of Washington D.C. is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for anyone who can help ID "persons of interest" on its website and/or tips which will lead to the arrest and indictment of yesterday's anarchists. Four people died after…

Unhinged Trump Incites D.C. Coup, Then Tries to Un-Do it by Tweet

WTF just happened today? I have changed the headline to this story three times already. First I was writing about Merrick Garland being Joe Biden's pick for Attorney General. Then I was linking that tidbit to Mitch McConnell's Senate floor speech, one of the finest of his careers I posit, one that left liberals especially grateful for  his rebuking Donald Trump's insane quest to overturn November's election. McConnell, I duly note, is now outgoing Majority…

Donald Trump wants to escape Biden's Inauguration at Scotland gold club, but Scotland says no
Scotland Foils Trump’s Inauguration Escape Plan, Says No Can Do (Covid, Remember?)

Despite Donald Trump's bluster about "fighting like hell" to keep the presidency, he was planning an escape to Scotland just one day before his term ends. Except the First Minister of Scotland says Um, no, that's not happening. A Scottish newspaper reported Sunday that U.S. military flight preparations were being made at Scotland's Prestwick airport, near Trump's Turnberry golf club, that indicate "Trump is going to be somewhere for an extended period,” the paper quoted a source as…

Buckle Up Kids, Democracy’s In for a Bumpy Ride!

An increasingly desperate, delusional and dumb-as-duck president kicks off historic week in Washington with criminal phone call caught on tape. Oh God, it's only Monday. With 16 days to go until his ouster, Donald Trump once again stars in a sh*t show of his own making, a penultimate, Red Wedding episode that will end predictably but not without substantial carnage. Episode "Criminal Call" began yesterday when The Washington Post reported on a (even by Dotard…

No Magazine Covers for You! by Olive America
No Magazine Covers for Melania — Gee I Wonder Why?

One of Donald Trump's many grievances this past week is that leading U.S. fashion magazines haven't put Melania on any of their covers while she's been First Lady. Breitbart News pointed this out a twitter post last Friday and Trump re-tweeted it, adding that Melania was the "greatest of all time" First Ladies and the fashion press were "elitist snobs" for snubbing her. I would like to point out that Melanie did grace one style…

Donald Trump Pardons Charles Kushner
Sex, Lies and Videotape — Inside the Pardon of Charles Kushner

Raise your hand if you'd like to know a little more about convicted felon and just-pardoned father of presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner. I thought so. Once upon a time Charles Kushner, 66, served 14 months in a federal prison for tax evasion, making illegal campaign donations and witness tampering -- and not your every day, garden variety type of witness tampering either. This witness tampering included Kushner hiring a hooker to have sex with his brother-in-law,…

All I Want for Christmas Is for My Pillow Guy to Go Away

To be clear, I'm not wishing the My Pillow Guy ill, I just want him off my f*cking television. Is that asking too much? Mike Lindell a.k.a. the My Pillow Guy, is everywhere and I can't escape him. His ads promising the best night's sleep of your life on his lumpy bumpy pillows overrun cable TV like Corona at the White House. I'm a channel flicker and usually work to the din of CNN, MSNBC…

Confirmed! Dr. Fauci Vaccinated Santa!

The country's top infectious disease expert and National Treasure Dr. Anthony Fauci has confirmed he personally just gave Santa Claus the Coronavirus vaccine! And while we don't know Santa's precise age or whether he has any co-morbidities (my money is on Type II diabetes) his status as an essential worker no doubt qualified him for the vaccine -- and just in the "Nick" of time for Santa's Christmas Eve sleigh ride and gift-delivering tour. Dr.…

Will Trump Reboot The Apprentice, Fizzle Like Sarah Palin or Both?

These burning questions were hotly debated yesterday on MSNBC in the wake of new reporting by The Daily Beast that Donald Trump has been thinking about resurrecting his former NBC hit TV series The Apprentice or The Celebrity Apprentice in his post-presidency. TDB reports: In the past two weeks, the people familiar with the matter note, Trump has casually slipped into conversation lines such as, “How would you like to see The Apprentice come back?” and…

Pompeo Party Fail – No-Shows, Cancellation and Quarantine Mark Superspreader Events

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his wife Susan invited 900 guests to an indoor Superspreader Christmas party this week, but fewer than 70 people actually showed up. That included Pompeo himself who was mysteriously AWOL for the event. But then we learned why yesterday, when it was revealed Pompeo had been exposed to Covid. The State Department was elusive about where and how Pompeo became exposed, saying only that he had tested negative and was quarantining.…

Is there a dick in the house? by Olive America
Is There a Dick in the House?

Let me answer that -- most definitely. And by Dick, I'm referring to Wall Street Journal editorial writer Joseph Epstein, whose op-ed piece from yesterday disparaged soon-to-be First Lady Dr. Jill Biden for using the title "Dr." even though she doesn't deliver babies. (She has a Doctorate in Education.) The piece, titled "Is There a Doctor in the White House? Not if You Need an M.D.,"  which first appeared online Friday night, has not gone…

Biden Wins Again and Again and Again as Trump Piles up Triple Loss in 24 Hours

Two magazines and Supreme Court hand Trump triple loss in 45's most terrible, horrible, no good, very bad 24 hours to date This Biden winning again business never gets old. And neither does the flip side of saying Trump loses again. Whether its a Supreme Court smackdown or an internationally recognized magazine branding Trump a loser, the schadenfreude just keeps coming. This particularly tough week for Donald Trump ended with a triple whammy in his loser…

Typhoid Rudy and Sidekick Jenna Now Spreading Bullshit and Covid
Typhoid Rudy and Sidekick Jenna Now Spreading Bullshit AND Covid!

Axios's Jonathan Swan has the savory scoop of the day in reporting that Trump fraud-fighting attorney and sidekick to Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, has tested positive for Covid-19. This comes one day after Giuliani, 76, was hospitalized with Covid at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington D.C. Ellis was last seen giving Rudy the literal stink-eye during a voter fraud hearing last week in Michigan, after the microphone picked up a couple of Rudy's farts. The…

Hall of Shame for Pardoned General Mike Flynn
Hall of Shame: Pardoned Criminal General Mike Flynn Wants Martial Law and New Election

Recently pardoned criminal and Retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn, echoed calls for Donald Trump to declare martial law and hold a new election this week, by retweeting the absurd credo of an Ohio-based Neo-conservative group. The fringe political group “We The People Convention” took out a full-page ad in the Washington Times on Tuesday, urging Trump to “immediately declare a limited form of Martial Law, and temporarily suspend the Constitution and civilian control of these federal…

Trump Regime Ends
The Great Unf*cking of America Begins

Donald Trump caves to bi-partisan pressure, lets Biden's transition begin After two weeks of trying to steal the election from Joe Biden, worst-president-of-all-time Donald Trump caved to bi-partisan pressure and grudgingly allowed Emily Murphy, his head of U.S. General Services Administration, to grant government access and funding necessary for Biden's transition. Yesterday Murphy, a MAGA foot solider and "Karen" of the highest order, finally did her fucking job and authorized the transition after a more…

Donald Trump Described as Liar, Charlatan, Ignorant and Ass
He Who Must Not Be Named

Soon-to-be-ex and worst-president-of-all-time does not deserve title of office he defiles I am seeing a growing number of media pundits refuse to use the political office title in front of Donald Trump's name. This is a not-so-subtle acknowledgement that he's un-deserving of the office he has defiled since he was accidentally elected in 2016. Add me to the list. A popular substitute is the number "45" because he is our 45th president -- and mercilessly…
