Trump Wanted to Build Hotel in What He Now Calls a Crime-infested Hellhole

So we've all heard by now that Donald Trump told civil rights icon John Lewis he should pay more attention to his own district, which includes the city of Atlanta, because it was in “horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested)."

Poet Writes Terrible Ode to Donald Trump

So a Scottish poet named Joseph Charles MacKenie decided to write a poem for the inauguration of Donald Trump. It plays on Trump's Scottish roots and refers to him by his name in (I assume) Gaelic, Domhnall.

Roy Moore for Supreme Court Justice?

Okay, say it with me: Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore. And then throw up a little in your mouth at that horrifying thought. But Operation Rescue is urging Donald Trump to nominate Moore to replace Justice Scalia on the Supreme Court. An email they sent out supporting a petition to do so: … [Read more...]

People All Over the World, Join Hands, Start a…’POTUS Shield’?

A group of my very favorite Christian con artists and self-declared "prophets of God" are descending on Washington, DC this week to pray and sing and mumble incoherently in order to form a "POTUS Shield" over the city to protect Trump against spiritual heebie jeebies. Or something. … [Read more...]

New ADF Leader Predicts Even More of the Persecution that Doesn’t Exist

If you think Christians are being persecuted in this country now -- and they aren't, of course -- then just you wait. Michael Farris, the far-right theocrat who is now the new president of the Alliance Defending Freedom, says it's gonna get worse now that we liberals are out of power. … [Read more...]

Joyner: Common Core is ‘Treason’ that Will ‘Destroy America’

Professional Christian con man Rick Joyner vomits up another bucket full of stupid by announcing that Common Core constitutes "treason" and that it will "absolutely destroy America." Why? How? A Jedi questions not these things. Just shut your brain off and clutch your pearls. … [Read more...]
