The Cynical and Hypocritical Pandering of Mike Pence

It was bad enough that Donald Trump tried to get a little reflected glory from issuing a proclamation for Martin Luther King day. Now Mike Pence is doing the same thing. The two of them are about as far as you can get from being anything remotely in line with MLK’s views without actually being named Hitler. (more…) Read more

Taylor: Trump to Start Pedophile Roundup in February

Firefighter-turned-conman Mark Taylor is one of those crackpots who believes that Trump is going to round up hundreds, maybe thousands, of pedophiles, including the Clintons and the Obamas. Now he’s put a timetable to it — it’s gonna start in February. (more…) Read more

Staver’s Hypocritical Bigotry

Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman, says that gay judges can’t be fair or objective when handling cases involving Christians. Funny, though, that the same is not true about Christian judges handling cases involving gay rights. (more…) Read more

Yes, Call Donald Trump a Racist

I’m the kind of person who tries not to reach overly simplistic conclusions. I try to recognize nuance and not get caught up in lobbing unsubstantiated accusations. But sometimes we must call something exactly what it is in order to deal with it. And Donald Trump, as a New York Times op-ed says, is a racist. Always has been. (more…) Read more

KY Gov: Access to Health Care Makes People Sicker

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin went on MSNBC to defend his state’s decision to reduce the number of people eligible for Medicaid and made the staggeringly stupid argument that access to health care actually makes people more sick. All based on a terrible correlation without causation argument. (more…) Read more

Fox News Can’t Believe People Talk About Civil Rights Protests on MLK Day

Fox News has an op-ed column on their website from some dullard named Jeremy Hunt arguing — and I’m not making this up — that it’s wrong to talk about protests against racial injustice on Martin Luther King day. That sound you hear is a million heads hitting desks simultaneously. (more…) Read more

Of Course Trump is Lying About ‘Shithole’ Comment

After not denying it for more than 24 hours, Trump now insists — kinda, sorta — that he didn’t say that he didn’t want immigrants from “shithole” countries coming here. And the Republican Senators who were there suddenly changed their stories to support his. (more…) Read more

Trump’s Ridiculous and Dishonest Hyperbole

In the Trump “University” lawsuit, Trump’s lawyers argued that he didn’t commit fraud because what he said — that he had handpicked every instructor, blah blah blah — was “truthful hyperbole.” But his real specialty is untruthful hyperbole, like his claim to reporters in the wake of his “shithole” comments: (more…) Read more

A Privileged Buffoon Attacks His Superiors

One of the things that Trump’s “shithole” comment reminded me of is his long track record of blindly attacking and denigrating those who have shown far more courage, strength, endurance and moral character than he could ever summon up in his wildest dreams. (more…) Read more

Breitbart’s Incredibly Dishonest Reporting

I’m not surprised to see Warner Todd Huston working for Breitbart; long has he toiled in the bowels of the wingnutosphere, from at least the old days of that ridiculous Stop the ACLU site. Nor am I surprised to see how dishonest his and their reporting is on this “story” about Hillary Clinton and the Uranium One deal. But it’s instructive to look at how they tell their lies.
