During a 2016 campaign rally, Trump spotted a black man among his supporters and said — this is just so typical — “Look at my African-American over here.” That black Republicans, Gregory Cheadle, not only no longer supports Trump but has left the Republican party over his blatant racism and the GOP’s total acceptance of it. He did an interview with PBS talking about that and the fact that he’s going to run for the House as an independent. (more…) Read more

On Wednesday, the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11, Trump spoke at the Pentagon, which was hit by one of the planes. And he told yet a different version of his ever-changing story of what he saw and did that day. He’s told several obvious lies about it over the years. He said: (more…) Read more

A couple dozen Q Anon conspiracy nuts held a rally at the Washington Monument on Wednesday, which is amusing because many of them believe that monument is a Masonic, and thus Satanic, symbol. And some of the speeches were absolutely hilarious, advocating things like 9/11 trutherism. Will Sommer of the Daily Beast was there and tweeting about it. (more…) Read more

Paula White seems to operate as Trump’s chief “spiritual adviser.” She doesn’t care whether he’s actually religious or not (and he’s not), it raises her profile. She gave a sermon at the church of fellow con artist Morris Cerullo in which she said, among a whole bunch of bat guano things, that she has consecrated the White House as holy ground and called out her angels to watch over it.

Well here’s an interesting twist to the John Bolton firing/resignation. Yes, there were policy differences that were untenable and anyone who paid attention knew that was eventually going to blow up, but several sources told CBS News that Trump fired him because he believed that Bolton or someone on his staff leaked the story about him wanting to nuke hurricanes to stop them.

Polling has shown that Trump is very unpopular all over, but the most surprising finding of several polls is that he may be in serious trouble in Texas, which has been trending more and more Democratic with each election. Nearly half of Texas voters say they will not vote for him in 2020, a lot more than those who say they will. (more…) Read more

Here’s the perfect postscript to Trump’s week long meltdown over his false claim that Alabama was going to be hit harder than expected by Hurricane Dorian. Several senior White House officials told the Washington Post that Trump personally ordered Mick Mulvaney to make NOAA put out a statement softening their blatant contradiction of his initial tweet.

I recently quoted the moronic Jesse Lee Peterson saying that being educated should be shameful, especially for women. Attacks on higher education have become routine on the right and a Tennessee state legislator was quite blunt about it, saying that we should get rid of all higher education in order to “save America.” (more…) Read more

Mitch McConnell has set the template for how to violate every conceivable norm and ethical standard to gain a partisan advantage and the Republicans who run the North Carolina House of Representatives have learned that lesson well. The dirty trick they pulled off on Wednesday is ethically unconscionable. (more…) Read more

It was always a strange mix to have neo-conservative John Bolton, who has never imagined a war that didn’t give him a chubby, as Trump’s National Security Adviser. On Tuesday morning, Trump either fired Bolton or Bolton resigned, depending on which one of them you choose to believe. I frankly don’t care. (more…) Read more
