Watching the excuses for Trump evolve over time is fascinating. He didn’t do it. Okay, he did do it, but it’s not illegal. We’ve seen it before many times in many situations.

The House voted overwhelmingly to condemn white supremacy and Rep. Steve King, but he says that privately a lot of conservatives have expressed their support for him and his views. I don’t doubt this for a moment. In an interview with Ed Martin, heir to Phyllis Schlafly’s throne of stupidity, he said: (more…) Read more

Charlie Shamp, yet another self-declared “prophet,” went on Jim Bakker’s TV show and told a ridiculous story about God giving him a vision that Pete Rose was going to be forgiven and put into the Baseball Hall of Fame and that this would be a sign that Jesus’ return was imminent.

Sean Hannity is adopting a favorite tactic of the Q Anon crackpots, who are always predicting that something huge is about to happen….any minute now. Wait for it. Any…minute…now.

Boy is the Christian right freaking out about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Dave Kubal of Intercessors of America says she’s at the center of a demonic presence in New York City and he’s dispatched a “spiritual SWAT team” to…I don’t know, set off prayer bombs? They’re doing something to stop this “diabolical” spirit. (more…) Read more

Jose Andres, one of the great chefs in the world and a real humanitarian, has opened a kitchen right near the White House to provide free meals to furloughed federal workers. He’s also serving them at all of his DC-area restaurants. He has now served literally millions of meals to those in need over the last few years. (more…) Read more

Here’s more video proof that Trump is lying when he says he never said Mexico would pay for the wall directly. During a primary debate in 2012, Wolf Blitzer asked him point blank what happens if he doesn’t get a check from Mexico for the cost of building the wall and he said he would get it (didn’t say how, of course).

Some new developments for my old pal Jason Van Dyke, attorney for Gavin McInnes and the Proud Boys and a violence-threatening white supremacist who has threatened to sue me more than once. He’s in major legal trouble and possibly facing both jail time and the loss of his license with the Texas Bar Association. (more…) Read more
