The second phase of the Trump Tax Cut disaster is beginning to clock in. America’s deficit has shot up 17% since the tax cuts came on line. Deficits, to Republicans, are kind of like immigration. They beat those drums constantly at election time, then tend to ignore them once the votes are counted. Even with President Trump in office and all the talk about his much-ballyhooed wall, the extent of Republican activity on illegal immigration has been limited to racist… Read more

President Trump has made his usual fool of himself, lying and blustering, going all out to defend Saudi Arabia in the recent grisly murder of an American journalist Jamal Kashoggi. He’s told us with a straight face that the Saudis deny having murdered Kashoggi, as if that settles it.  He’s even gone off down Kavanaugh road, claiming that this is “another case of guilty until proven innocent.” What he forgets is this isn’t about misogyny and the degradation of women… Read more

Sexual assault survivor Cristen Hemmings did something that most rape survivors feel too vulnerable to do. She confronted one of the men who took pleasure in President Trump’s mockery of Dr Christine Ford. The blackguard in question was one of Ms Hemmings’ fellow Mississippi election officials. This fellow got to sit in the catbird seat at a Trump rally. He was right behind the prez, laughing and applauding while the sexual-predator-in-chief attacked Dr Ford. Most survivors of sexual assault are… Read more

President Trump is welching on the deal.  In a move that should surprise no one, President Trump is now claiming that he never promised to donate $1,000,000 to a charity of Senator Elizabeth Warren’s choosing if she took a DNA test and it showed she had Native American ancestry. He’s lying, and cheating on the deal, as usual.  His history is littered with such bait and switch behavior, including an entire pretend “Trump University” that he used to cheat a good… Read more

President Trump is a bully and a liar. He lies about big things. He lies about little things. He lies about everything. He lies when, as my Grandmother used to say, the truth would do him better. He is also cruel, especially to women. He bullies people and uses the power of his office to carry on personal vendettas. He’s a liar, a corrupt businessman and a sexual predator. And he treats women like dirt, insulting and mocking women reporters,… Read more
