Christian con man Jim Bakker welcomed fellow Christian con man Bobby Connor — I mean, “seasoned prophet” Bobby Connor — to his show, during which he told an absolutely ridiculous story about how he once turned away a tornado because God said he’d kill a bunch of people if he didn’t.

Baghdad Kellyanne Conway says she was raised to air grievances in private, which is obviously why she went on national television to complain about her husband publicly criticizing her boss. Because she never criticizes people publicly herself, of course. She’s totally not Trump’s attack dog or anything. (more…) Read more

We’ve already seen study after study that shows racial bias in stops made by the police, but a new study, perhaps the largest ever done, has found that black drivers are significantly more likely to be pulled over and searched than white drivers. This should come as a shock to absolutely no one. (more…) Read more

Two internal Pentagon memos were leaked to the Los Angeles Times that show Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller criticizing the use of troops at the Southern border and the pending transfer of funds from the Pentagon budget to help Trump build the wall.

The incomparably stupid Jesse Lee Peterson continued his best Uncle Ruckus impersonation with one of the dumbest tweets ever conceived by man. There is no such thing as a white supremacist, you see, because he’s never heard anyone call themselves there. Thus, it was made up by Satanists. (more…) Read more

Standing on the White House lawn having an impromptu back and forth with reporters, Trump delivered a bewildered, and bewildering, diatribe about Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He was quite confused, or at least claimed to be, that Mueller even exists and thinks it has something to do with his “greatest electoral victory in the history in the country.” (more…) Read more

Trump met at the White House this week with Jair Bolsonaro, the newly elected leader of Brazil, and warmly embraced and endorsed him, even saying he wanted to take the nearly unprecedented step of making Brazil an official non-NATO ally. Bolsonaro is a big fan of Trump, which means Trump loves him regardless — or because of — his undeniable bigotry and desire to become a dictator. (more…) Read more

The Huffington Post has an article in the wake of the massacre at a mosque in New Zealand calling Islamophobia a “global crisis.” It looks at anti-Muslim extremism by the far-right, but also briefly mentions Sam Harris, Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins. American Atheists shared the article on their Facebook page and my friend Seth Andrews responded, in part: (more…) Read more
