The Best Donald Trump Jokes, Puns, Tweets, Quotes, Poems, Limericks and Hashtags
Q: What do you call it when a Man-Baby takes over the American government?
A: Coup d'Tot.
I don't approve of political jokes; I have seen too many of them get elected.—Jon Stewart
Nancy Pelosi's "seal" of disapproval was the highlight of Trump's lie-filled, self-glorifying State of the Union Address. The Pelosi clap-back came in a meme-able moment after Trump whined about "the politics of revenge" even as he wallowed in it. Pelosi was immediately crowned the "Queen of Condescending Applause" for her jeer clap. Patton Oswalt congratulated her for inventing an obscenity without resorting to a certain finger. But we think it was more poetic than that and have interpreted Pelosi's gesture for our readers:
and your SotU;
you're done, toast, through.
Stephen Colbert said the SotU speech "was like watching paint lie."
Trump's speech was longer than his tie, which was as red, skewed and off-kilter as his xenophobic politics.
"Trump's speech was so long, Robert Mueller handed him another five indictments," Jimmy Kimmel joked. "He spoke for longer than he was married to Marla Maples." Even worse, "The speech went on for 83 minutes and Trump spoke with all the elegance of a book report written by a third grader on the bus."
Trevor Noah observed that "an immigrant got the first standing ovation of the night." That was Melania Trump, the chain migrator. But her parents are sufficiently pale not to alarm white nationalists.
Trump bragged about the "hot" economy, prompting Stephen Colbert to slip into his Trump voice: "It's so hot, if it wasn't my economy, perhaps I'd be dating it."
Seth Meyers did credit Trump for the economic boom: "You've created thousands of jobs for lawyers!"
Trump's State of the Disunion speech was a prime grime event. Sadly, it was missing some of its major stars. Still, "everybody who was anybody who was not indicted was there,” as Colbert observed.

The Top Ten Donald Trump Jokes
Donald Trump is giving narcissism a bad name.―Madeline Begun Kane aka Mad Kane
There are schizophrenics with Tourette's who have more control over what comes out of their mouths than Donald Trump.―Bill Maher
Donald Trump is "the kind of person who goes to the Super Bowl and thinks the people in the huddle are talking about him."―Eric Schneiderman
Donald Trump likes to say he's a friend to "the blacks." Unless the Blacks are a family of white people, I'm guessing he's mistaken.―Seth Meyers
This is what I've been waiting for my whole life: a President who's not afraid to tell the truth about being a lying a$$hole!―Lewis Black
In an exclusive interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Donald Trump said, "I believe in God." But of course The Donald was talking about HIMSELF.―Jay Leno
Maybe he should ease into this ... by running for a lower office first, like President of the Hair Club for Men.―Jimmy Kimmel
Here's the thing about Donald Trump: he never apologizes; he's never wrong no matter what crazy thing he says. He's the white Kanye.―Bill Maher
Donald Trump showed his birth certificate to reporters. Who cares about his birth certificate? I want to know if that thing on his head has had its vaccinations.―Craig Ferguson
Donald Trump may be running for president. He said he's sick and tired of the rest of the world laughing at the United States. Well, President Trump will certainly put an end to that!―David Letterman
Apparently David Letterman spoke prophetically, because since his election Trump has become the object of global ridicule. After world leaders assembled at the UN burst into laughter when Trump informed them that he had done more in two years than "almost any other" American president, Stephen Colbert quipped: "Don't worry, Mr. President, they're not laughing at you, they're laughing with each other at you!"
The Joke's on US
The joke's on US (the United States) if we ever believed Trump was going to build an "impenetrable" wall that Mexico would pay for. Here's proof positive ...
... I call it the Trump Drug Teller Window Wall. Now anyone who wants to sell drugs at the border can grab a cheap saw, hack out an easy access window, and be immediately open for business! Or the packages can simply be slipped through the gaps between the slats, along with money and weapons. Anyone who thinks this Waffle Wall is going to stop people from buying or selling drugs has serious gullibility issues. Trump's steel slat fence can easily be sliced and diced with an inexpensive saw purchased at Home Depot. Like his fraudulent "charity" and his fraudulent "university," Trump's wall is a fraud, whatever the hell he calls it.
But there is some good news. Trump has finally found a truly impenetrable wall. Her name is Nancy Pelosi.
This is a brief instructional guide for Trump on how to go after Nancy Pelosi:
After the public spanking Trump took from Nancy Pelosi, his next book will be titled The Art of the Kneel, the Squeal and the Plaintive Appeal.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
As reported by Rachel Maddow, people donating money to the Trump campaign to "build the wall" are actually paying to build a wall of very expensive lawyers for Jared Kushner!
The Best Donald Trump Joke of All Time is True!
Donald Trump has a much bigger problem than Robert Mueller or James Mattis or even Mr. Putin, because this time he's pissed off people with real power! And witches do not want to be associated with The Donald! “To have him compare his situation to the worst period in our history is just infuriating,” witch Kitty Randall told the Daily Beast, referring to Trump's claim that he's the victim of witch hunts. Some witches — including a coven in Brooklyn — have taken to casting spells on the commander-in-chief. But most sorcerers are still biding their time, according to Randall.

The day Trump allowed the Nunes memo to be published, the stock market crashed 666 points. The federal budget deficit for Trump's first fiscal year was 666 billion dollars. The founder of the Trump family business died on 6-6-6. The Trump family controls 666 Fifth Avenue, a street symbolic of money (Mammon). Trump was born on a blood moon. And that's just the tip of the Antichrist iceberg! (For more eerie connections, please click Trump 666)
Evangelicals love Trump. Sure he's a liar, but he's their liar. Sure he's a sexual predator, but he's their sexual predator. Sure he's the opposite of Jesus Christ in every imaginable way, but he's their Antichrist.
Where does Donald Trump go during a national emergency? Evidently, he heads straight to the omelet bar of his Mar-a-Lago golf club!
Donald Trump has "many stats." But the only ones he believes are Putin's.
Just when you think Trump can't sink any lower, he does. He actually called it "phony" to walk a dog! But at least he's an equal opportunity animal hater: Trump is the first president not to have pets of any kind. And dogs have the good sense not to like him. Trump's first wife, Ivana, said that her poodle Chappy had an "equal dislike" for Trump and would bark at him when he got too close.
Barr that bromance! GOP senators are promising that Attorney General nominee William Barr won't touch Robert Mueller's probe!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Trump had a real sweetheart of a deal for Americans on Valentine's Day ... replacement of the Constitution with an Imperial Monarchy!
The American founding fathers risked everything, including their lives, to escape the clutches of King George. Now, thanks to spineless Republican senators and congressmen, we are in the imperialist clutches of King Gorge.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Samantha Bee pointed out that the three-week shutdown truce was no bed of roses: "This Valentine's Day, Trump is going to screw every American all at once!" She proved to be prophetic.
If you're tall, blonde and pretty,
I'll grab your kitty.
If you're dark-skinned and short,
It's time to deport.
I'll secure your southern border tonight,
as long as you're wearing white!
If you're not
as my daughter,
for the border slaughter!
American women are Stuporman's kryptonite.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Donald Trump admitted that he's not a rich man when he said, "This is a very small amount of money we are asking for." But the border wall would cost many times Trump's real net worth, so he must be a pauper. If he were really as rich as he claims, Trump could pay for the wall himself, since he didn't deliver on his daily campaign vows to force Mexico to fund it.
Trump is apparently considering the declaration of a second "national emergency" because SNL has been poking fun at him! This is the "real collusion" according to a Trump tweet in which he called for "retribution." Shades of 1969, when Richard Nixon persuaded CBS to cancel The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour for poking fun at him.
In his latest Pocahontas tweet, Trump made a twisted joke out of the Trail of Tears. For an encore, he will use Holocaust humor in tweets about Barry Sanders and Chuck Schumer.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Republican Senator John Kennedy minced no words about Trump's pitiful dealmaking: “Our Middle East policy right now looks like something my dog’s been keeping under our back porch. Nobody knows what it is, but it’s ugly.”
Sarah "Suckmypee" Sanders explains away Trump's "executive time" as his need for a "more creative environment." All those golf vacations are like a kindergartner's recess! Watching TV for hours on end is like Sesame Street! Shutting down the government for a month is like time out!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
The picture above―the earliest known image of The Donald―is evidence that he was suckled in Emperor Palpatine’s romper room.
Is Trump smarter than a fifth-grader? Here are the top ten reasons to suspect not ...
(8) Trump complained bitterly about a nonexistent "tapp" on his phones. Placed there, no doubt, by dastardly tapp dancers!
(7) "I accomplished the military." Or how about the fact that, thanks to Trump, we now have "very little ISIS." Trump's command of the English language is big, beautiful, powerful, incredible, amazing, strong, great, the best, tremendous, terrific, unbelievable, classy, smart, tough, brilliant, fabulous, fantastic, so good! And he never exaggerates, believe me!
(6) At the National Prayer Breakfast, Trump said people of faith had led the "abolition of civil rights."
(5) Trump tweeted that Ted Cruz would "loose" big to Hillary Clinton. In a single tweet he confused "there" with "their" and "to" with "too."
(4) Trump tweeted that he is "honered" to serve the American people. So far he has served them a government shutdown, upwards of 8,000 lies, healthy doses of collusion, and lots of taxpayer-financed presidential golf excursions.
(3) Trump misspelled "hereby" twice: first typing "hear by" then "correcting" himself with "hearby." That's a lot of "hears" from someone who refuses to listen!
(2) Trump tweeted that the country needed to "heel" its divisions. Which he is doing with his racist dog whistling!
(1) Trump promised to "promote the possibility of lasting peach" between Israelis and Palestinians. Which he is doing, by always making the Israeli side seem peachy-keen. For instance, when Ivanka posed for photo-ops outside the new Jerusalem embassy while Israeli snipers were gunning down Palestinian protesters.
The House Intelligence Committee is reportedly launching an "M.R.I." of the president’s Russian financing. It may be more like a colonoscopy.―Vanity Fair
"If Trump were on the box [lie detector] at Quantico, he would break the machine."—Andrew McCabe, former Acting Director of the FBI
The border wall is "a Trump emergency, not a national emergency."—Neal Katyal, perhaps America's foremost legal expert on the subject of presidential emergency powers
As is his wont, while announcing his "national emergency" Trump completely undermined his own position, saying: "I didn't need to do this, but I'd rather do it faster. I want to get it done faster, that's all." Not needing to do something quickly is the opposite of an "emergency." Neal Katyal quipped: "That quote is going right in the lawsuit." Then, to further prove that there was no "emergency," Trump quickly jetted off to Mar-a-Lago for yet another golf vacation.
"If Trump is going to have any chance of winning in 2020, Russian hackers are going to have to work overtime."—Senator Eric Swalwell
"The only truly big thing Trump has built is the record national budget deficit."—Lawrence O'Donnell
Trump identified himself as the Shutdown Table-Setter, explaining: "By having the shutdown, we've set the table beautifully! If I didn't do the shutdown, people wouldn't know anything about the subject. Now they understand the subject." Trump sounds like a hostage-taker making damn sure a family understands that if they don't fork over YUGE sums of money, they'll never see their kids again. Trump has upped the ante by holding millions of federal workers, subcontractors and immigrants hostage. However, professionals don't try to convince their victims that what they're doing is "beautiful."―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
How the mighty have fallen! Trump, Fox News and the GOP are now claiming that 55 miles of porous fencing is somehow "finishing the wall." Ann Coulter called it the "Yellow New Deal," Laura Ingraham called it "stall funding" and Sean Hannity called it a "garbage compromise."
Sometimes there seems to be no way to oppose Trump with humor. For instance, when his administration admits that thousands of children have been ripped from their mothers' breasts, that the separations continue to occur, and that it is too much of a "burden" to even try to correct the problem.
After Trump bought every "hamberder" in sight and the Clemson football team quickly scarfed them down, Burger King regretfully informed fans of the new fast food fad that "Due to a large order placed yesterday, we're all out of hamberders, just serving hamburgers today." If you're lucky enough to find a #hamberder please be sure to wash it down with a nice #malk or, better yet, #covfefe. Or you can roll your own with some #Hamberder Helper (c).
Trump later announced that he was going to make Taco Bell pay for the hamberders.
Fact checkers quickly crunched the numbers and determined that 700 of the reported 1,000 hamberders were unaccounted for. Theories ranged from Trump not being smarter than a fifth-grader to his having eaten 700 hamberders on the way back from the local Berder King. Liberals are understandably concerned that this is new Putin plot to destroy the American way of life. According to the failing New York Times, Robert Mueller is launching a new probe and indictments are expected in "short order."―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Thanks to Mitch Muck-Con-Hell, federal workers and subcontractors were forced to eat pork-n-beans rather than hamberders for more than a month.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Fox News anchors are melting down, as if the Wicked Witch of the West Wing just ran into Dorothy, played by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Why are the anchors melting down? The network's own polls revealed that a staggering 70% of respondents support raising taxes on annual incomes over $10 million. Furthermore 65% support raising taxes on incomes over $1 million per year.
Nancy Pelosi just announced that the Trump "State of the Disunion Address" will be delivered from the closet where Mitch McConnell hides to avoid Senate votes.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Nancy Pelosi observed that Trump's wall is "like a manhood thing for him." Was she implying that Trump's sex organ is smaller than advertised, or was she outing him as a broke dick?
Trump is essentially one giant urine collection away from being Howard Hughes.―Aldous J Pennyfarthing
Trump turned down General James Mattis's offer to remain as Secretary of Defense long enough to ensure a smooth transition by summarily firing him. Trump then tweeted that he was "fixing" the American military. Apparently he meant "fixing" as in emasculating and neutering.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Oh, what tangled webs they weave
when Trump and his toupée seek to deceive!
―Michael R. Burch

State of the Union (or Disunion) Jokes
What does Nancy Pelosi think of the president, really? Word leaked out that she called the wall debate "a manhood thing" for Trump, likening their meeting to "a tinkle contest with a skunk" and explaining "I was just trying to be the mom."
Fact-checkers were able to verify only one Trump assertion: He can indeed take partial credit for so many women getting elected to Congress!
Many women wore suffragette white to the speech, "so the Democratic side was a sea of white — and the Republican side was also a sea of white [men]."
But it was not all a bed of roses. "Trump hates AIDS," said Kimmel. "That's why he fires one every two weeks."
Kimmel also decoded Trump's thinly-veiled threat to "go Nixon" on investigators:
If you want a president with orange color,
you must get rid of Robert Mueller!
Trump's watershed moment became his watershed paddling, thanks to Nancy Pelosi, when a wall-less spending bill was passed by veto-proof margins in the Senate and House.
If Putin wanted to concoct the ideal candidate to serve his purposes, his laboratory creation would look like Donald Trump.—Franklin Foer

One pro-Kremlin blogger summed up his government’s interest in the 2016 American presidential election with clarifying bluntness: “Trump will smash America as we know it, we’ve got nothing to lose.”
This mini timeline reveals Rudy Giuliani's evolution as one of America's greatest legal thinkers:
There was absolutely no collusion! None, in any way, shape for form! End this preposterous witch hunt!
Okay, there was maybe ... probably some collusion, but my client, like Sgt. Schultz, knows nothing!
Sure, we tried our best to collude, but we were really, really bad at it!
Of course there was YUGE collusion, but collusion is not a crime! In fact, there is no such thing as crime!
Heil Hair Hitler!
Boss, it's not really a jail, it's ... er ... um .... a gated community!
Rudy Ghouliani: "If you believe Cohen, I can get you a great deal on the Brooklyn Bridge!"
Robert Mueller: "If you believe Trump, I can get you a great deal on a Trump University diploma, a Trump charity donation, and a wall Mexico will pay for!"
Rudy Giuliani is the 73-year-old poster child for Trump Derangement Syndrome. First he listened to tapes. Then there were no tapes. Then there were tapes again. Giuliani voluntarily confesses to every possible version of every possible crime, leaving no stone unturned. He is to confession as a nymphomaniac is to sex. Giuliani has already written the epitaph that will adorn his tombstone: "He lied for Trump." But he has an impossible job, because according to Politico his boss is "apoplectic" and "enraged" because Giuliani quoted Trump's admission that the Moscow Tower discussions had continued until election day. Giuliani has the world's most difficult job: making Trump not seem like the treasonous lying sleazeball shyster that we all know he is.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
The Trump administration is like a Mafia family, except that no one has the sense to maintain a code of silence. The family's Don is the world's biggest loudmouth, blurting out an average of 100 lies per day, for everyone on the planet to hear. The family's lawyer confesses multiple versions of every possible crime and changes his story every 15 seconds. The family's spokesperson makes everyone's skin crawl. The sons are dolts and the favored daughter married badly. The wise guys are all wearing wires and the feds are taping every conversation. Stay tuned for the riveting conclusion of The Gaud Father.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
After his retirement as Trump's chief of staff, General John F. Kelly was asked what he thought about Trump being "proud" to shut down the federal government over his wall. “To be honest, it’s not a wall,” Kelly replied.
"Show Me the Pesos!!!" — Steve Schmidt, channeling Jerry Maguire
First Trump promised us a towering concrete wall that Mexico would pay for in pesos, so that cost was no object. Then it was a see-through fence with steel slats that the military would pay for. Next it was a bit of artistic latticework that the Democrats should pay for. Finally, it was "a gentle garden trellis" according to Ann Coulter. During his Oval Office speech, Trump said the wall will pay for the wall. Now, since his own party doesn't believe anything he says, it's a "border barrier" bead curtain that no one is willing to pay for. Tomorrow it will be an insubstantial vanishing mist that Trump will no doubt equate with the parting of the Red Sea.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Trump is in full meltdown mode. The only wall that's real is the one that's closing in on him.―Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono
Rachel Maddow has given examples of what she calls Trump's "magical nonsense":
Mexico will pay for the wall!
The wall has already been built!
We have to shut down the government for years to pay for the wall that has already been built and which Mexico is paying for!
Even though Trump confiscated his interpreter's notes, Putin knows what Trump said ... it's like "blackmail in a bottle."—Rachel Maddow
Putin now has an American president who does back flips on command.—Rachel Maddow
Nobel laureate economist Paul Krugman observed in a op-ed piece for The New York Times that the Trump White House has "nobody left besides those with no reputation to lose." Is that why the Trump administration is going for broke, literally, with the Trump Shutdown?
Joe Cirincione, a nuclear weapons policy expert, said Trump helped fill out Putin's bucket list when he withdrew the U.S. from Ronald Reagan's landmark Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty.
Want proof that God has a sense of irony? When Trump bragged that he had personally created 15,000 manufacturing jobs in Wisconsin, the name of the Chinese manufacturer was FoxConn. (FOX+CON, how appropriate!) The company has installed nets outside its Chinese factories to prevent employees from jumping to their deaths because working conditions are so dismal. Quotations by Foxconn's CEO, Terry Gou, adorn the walls: "Growth, thy name is suffering!" and "Achieve goals or the sun will no longer shine!" Perhaps American workers are lucky the jobs were just a $3 billion scam.
Rachel Maddow connected the dots and figured out that Trump has been citing scenes from the fictional movie Sicario: Day of the Soldado. The flick features bad guys roaring across the border in "unbelievable" vehicles. They duct-tape women’s mouths shut. In one scene, prayer rugs are found near the border. These are claims Trump has been making recently. No surprise, really. This is what Americans get when they elect a Celebrity Apprentice President.
According to SNL's Colin Jost, the Donald's solution to the Trump Shutdown is a hostage negotiation with millions of human bargaining chips: "Give me $5.7 billion or it's bye-bye Dreamers!"
However, Acting President Ann Coulter was not impressed with Trump's shutdown math. She tweeted: "100 miles of border wall in exchange for amnestying millions of illegals. So if we grant citizenship to a BILLION foreigners, maybe we can finally get a full border wall."
When Trump caved on his border wall, Acting President Coulter called him the Biggest Wimp in the history of the presidency and demanded veto power over him in an interview with Bill Maher: “I promise you the country would be run much better if I had a veto over what Donald Trump is doing. It’s crazy that I expect a president to keep the promise he made every day for 18 months.”
Acting President Coulter is not a fan of Trump's reading skills or his understanding of American government. She said: "Someone has got to read the Constitution to him" when she was asked if she thought Trump would declare a national emergency on the southern border.
Impressed with her verbal fireworks, the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC immediately announced its plan to draft Coulter to run for president in 2020. “It’s an honor to be asked by such a patriotic and important organization," Coulter responded. "They are obviously correct that I would make a tremendous president. But unfortunately, I’m against women working!" However, she's apparently not opposed to women bitching.
Professional wrestler Chris Jericho gave Nancy Pelosi a perfect ten after she applied the "Walls of Jericho" to Donald Trump. That stunning move resulted in what will now forever be known as Trump's Concession Stand.
In a rare flash of honesty, Trump described his presidency as "one of the greatest losers of all time" while speaking on the record with The New York Times. During the interview Little Boy Blue begged Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger for more favorable coverage, pleading: "I'm sort of entitled to a great story from my — just one — from my newspaper."
Trump's post-shutdown strategy is to persuade his base that the border wall has already been "built" even though zero new miles have been erected. And Trump's base might believe in his magical invisible border wall, except that Acting President Ann Coulter keeps informing them that he's a lazy, no-good, incompetent liar!
When Steve Martin played Roger Stone in a SNL skit, he resurrected his old "Pardon me!" catchphrase as a signal to a certain TV-addicted president to save him before he rats.
Lincoln had a team of rivals; Trump has a team of morons. — Nobel Laureate economist Paul Krugman
Trump's "negotiation skills are terrible. He's going to be left naked at the poker table every single time he goes up against Nancy Pelosi.―Jason Johnson
The Republicans haven't had a new idea since Jack Kemp.―John Kasich, a Republican governor and presidential candidate
Trump is baffled that he doesn't get more credit for staying at the White House, although that is where presidents live and work.
Historians Kevin Kruse and Julian Zelizer have noted a "fascinating paradox" about Trump’s imperial presidency: He keeps shredding norms in ways that damage our institutions, while not getting much of what he wants. He's a hostage-taker who never collects the ransom. Yet crucial to Trump's "grand illusion" is creating the impression (via "manly optics") that his norm-shredding is producing results. According to Kruse and Zelizer: "The imperial presidency is, in many ways, propped up by media partisans who insist that the naked emperor has glorious new clothes." So welcome to the Grand Illusion, or in Trump's case, the Grand Collusion.
Tweety is an odd bird, to say the least. He seems to have a gift for parroting what people want to hear. But perhaps never before in his life has he been forced to make all his lies add up. When one of his cons failed, Tweety would pay off the victims, or use lawyers to scare them away, or go to daddy for a multi-million-dollar bailout. So he's never really been tested, and it seems impossible that Tweety can take an oath and avoid perjury. Rudy Giuliani has announced that his client will no longer talk to Mueller in any way, shape or form. John Dowd quit when Tweety Blurred insisted that he would make a great witness. So it seems the only defense that can possibly save Trump is to keep him from singing.
Talking about his wall, Trump said: “This should have been done by all of the presidents that preceded me. And they all know it. Some of them have told me that we should have done it.” But all the living presidents deny this, so apparently Trump has been in communication with multiple dead presidents! Unfortunately, Trump has not been channeling the spirit of Ronald Reagan, who once famously said of a dividing barrier, "Tear down this wall!"
Trump is holding the US government and 800,000 federal workers hostage for $5.7 billion in ransom.
Republican senators are hiding under their desks.―Tim Kaine
As one GOP strategist put it: "Republicans have pulled a gun and taken themselves hostage" over Trump's wall.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), an immigration hard-liner, said: “Wherever there’s a wall built, it’s been effective.” Apparently he's never heard of walls that failed spectacularly: the Walls of Jericho, the Great Wall of China, Hadrian's Wall, the Maginot Line, the Berlin Wall, etc.
Call him the Wall Nut since Trump seems to have a fetish for imaginary walls. For instance, in defense of his nonexistent wall, Trump tweeted: "President and Mrs. Obama built/has [sic] a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound." Trump’s assertion came as a surprise to two neighbors of the Obamas who told The Washington Post there is no such wall. A longtime resident of the area said Trump “has a very active imagination.”
Like the Grinch he is, Trump was "proud" to shut down Whoville the American government, as Christmas neared. But shouldn't he be shutting down the Mexican government, since he vowed Mexico would pay for his wall?
Trump is putting the X back in Xmas by X-ing out refugee children and their mothers. If baby Jesus and Mary showed up needing shelter, Trump wouldn't provide them with even a lowly manger. Instead, he'd order American soldiers to drive them back into the wilderness at gunpoint. Meanwhile, this is what the eerie Trump festivities looked like the last two years: Trump Christmas.
After Trump tweeted "poor me" because he had to spend Christmas at the palatial White House due to the government shutdown he proudly engineered, Trump was mocked on Twitter:
Home Alone !!!
Let's hope he's visited by three spirits tonight!
Our POTUS just tweeted "poor me." OMG what alternative reality is this?
This is what happens when the Celebrity Apprentice President needs a nap!
While you're whining in a Mansion, there are 800,000 Americans not being paid this Christmas, you out-of-touch baby!
In the spirit of the Christmas season, ICE has been living up to its frigid acronym by putting undocumented immigrants in hieleras—the Spanish word for "iceboxes" or "freezers." We have seen numerous pictures of children shivering under foil-like Mylar blankets and there are reports of some of them turning blue from the extreme cold.
Trump angrily replied to the "fake news" that his wall will not be all concrete ... by admitting that it will not be all concrete: "An all concrete Wall was NEVER ABANDONED, as has been reported by the media. Some areas will be all concrete but the experts at Border Patrol prefer a Wall that is see through (thereby making it possible to see what is happening on both sides)." So, just to be clear, the actual fake news was that there was going to be a solid 2,000-mile-long wall made out of precast concrete that Mexico was going to pay for—meaning cost was not an object and American taxpayers would not be dunned for the money. That's what Trump promised multiple times while campaigning. For instance, in the first town hall speech of his campaign at Derry, NH, Trump described his wall: “Did you ever see precast plank, for parking garages? So, you take precast plank. It comes 30 feet long, 40 feet long, 50 feet long. And you do a beautiful, nice precast plank with beautiful everything. Just perfect!” A year later at Kissimmee, FL, Trump was still talking about concrete: “Precast, right? Precast. Boom. Bing. Done. Keep going!” Trump would pose looking up into the heavens to illustrate how incredibly high his precast concrete wall would be. Everyone understood that he was talking about a solid, towering, unbroken wall. And Trump himself angrily denied that his thinking on the wall had ever evolved: “The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it.” And so while he was campaigning, Trump was either lying through his teeth to get elected, or he was incredibly foolish to think such an absurd wall would actually be built.
Trump claims to know more about ISIS than our generals. Here's what Trump knows about ISIS:
We have defeated ISIS!
Saudi Arabia will pay to defeat ISIS!
Thanks to the US pull-out, Russia and Iran will have to defeat ISIS!
Trump has a new, secret plan to defeat ISIS: "You have no idea what we've come up with ... you're going to be so happy ... when we Americans finally defeat ISIS!"
How bad is Trump, really? According to his first nanny, Reince Priebus, “Take everything you’ve heard and multiply it by 50.”
While it's true that Trump is the laziest president of all time, with 160 golf days and counting, that's probably a blessing. After all, just think of the damage he could do if he worked full time!
Trump gave thanks for himself on Thanksgiving Day. Meanwhile, as the Trumps dined in regal splendor, refugee children were being gassed at the border. Trump did, however, pardon two turkeys before devouring others. Such a fine Christian gentleman!
Douglas Brinkley said Trump's 35 gloom-and-doom Christmas Eve tweets were "like Charles Dickens' Scrooge on steroids."
The Grinch-like Trump then blew Santa's cover when he asked a boy named Coleman: "Are you still a believer in Santa? Because at 7 it's marginal, right?"
According to Rachel Maddow, this Christmas season features an Trump Advent Calendar from which a new surprise pops up every day. BOING! Russian collusion! BOING! Premeditated lies to the FBI and Congress! BOING! Payoffs to porn stars and Playboy bunnies with fraudulent paperwork! BOING! A Trump "charity" that spends other people's money on the Trumps. BOING! Betray our allies, including Israel, and hand over Syria to Putin, Assad and Iran. 'Tis the season for high crimes and misdemeanors!
Just in time for Christmas, Trump finally has a major win to crow about! North Korea just announced their willingness to disarm their nukes! ... But wait, there's one teeny-tiny little catch. They say the US must disarm first!
The truth hurts. Trump is reportedly furious that his new nanny-in-chief, Mick Mulvaney, once called him a "terrible human being." So just imagine the explosion when Trump learns that Mulvaney also derided his precious border wall, calling Trump's idea "simplistic," "absurd" and "almost childish." But that's what nannies are for: to watch over terrible tykes until they grow up.―Michael R. Burch
Trump tweeted a "Steel Slat Barrier" design for his border wall fence, calling it "totally effective while at the same time beautiful!" The fence would be topped with sharp metal spikes, presumably to "beautifully" impale babies and toddlers if they are accidentally dropped.
It is FAKE NEWS that Donald Trump doesn't have a sense of humor! Want proof? Well, this is incredibly funny: Trump says it should be illegal to make fun of Trump! That's like saying it should be illegal to breathe air. There are some things none of us can help doing.―Michael R. Burch
According to Lawrence O'Donnell, "Donald Trump is going to need more lawyers. A LOT of lawyers."
Trump has set the bar so low that if he spells his name correctly, Faux News gives him straight A's.
Trump's love for MbS is a romance that is perpetually new, a cloudless day of picnics in the park, sweet nothings of arms and oil deals, and promises of mutual defense.―Graeme Wood in The Atlantic
Jeff Sessions is the only confederate monument Trump was willing to take down.—Clint Smith @ClintSmithIII
In addition to her emails, federal investigators should examine Ivanka's feemails.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Paul Ryan gets that Trump thinks he really is the Messiah, in this joke he told: “Cardinal Dolan gave a benediction at President Trump’s inaugural. There was just this one kind of awkward moment when the cardinal talked about the infallible, enlightened supreme being. The president stood up and took a bow.”
When will Trump read the writing on the wall? MENE MENE TEKEL UPHARSIN. Your days are numbered. You have been measured and found wanting. Your administration is divided and doomed to fall.
One of my Christmas gifts was a prophetic t-shirt that says: "Elect a clown, expect a circus."―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Trump is the absolute King of Unintentional Comedy. For instance, he brag-tweeted that his approval rating had climbed to 52%. That would be average for anyone else, but stunningly good for him. Alas, that was his disapproval rating! His approval rating remains underwater at 39% and sinking.
Adam Schiff, who is known for his calm demeanor, recently observed that “Trump has created a constituency for people who are not running around with their hair on fire.”
Has the "witch hunt" gone too far? Not according to David French, who observed: "The sad reality is that the Trump operation was a target-rich environment for any diligent investigator."
Trump can't be trusted to run a tiny $1.7 million charity, but he can be trusted with a $4.1 trillion federal budget and the nuclear codes?
Please don't be shocked that Melania has changed her hair color to dirty blonde. Word is she's joining the federal witness protection program and needed an appropriate look.
Correction: It turns out that Melania just grabbed The Donald's hair dye by mistake!
Presidential biographer John Meacham described Trump as a "witting, unwitting or partially witting agent of a foreign power."
Trump accusing Michael Cohen of lying is like a spitting cobra criticizing a bulldog for drooling. Whose saliva is the most lethal?―Michael R. Burch
James Comey has a deadpan sense of humor. When he testified before Congress and was asked about Trump's suggestions that he and Robert Mueller were touchy-feely bosom buddies, Comey replied that he had "never hugged or kissed the man" then noted this was "a relief to my wife."
Who will replace White House Chief of Staff John Kelly? Prospective nannies for Truant Trump include Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins), Emma Thompson (Nanny McPhee), Carol Burnett (Miss Hannigan), Louise Fletcher (Nurse Ratched), Kathy Bates (Annie Wilkes), Hulk Hogan (Mr. Nanny), Arnold Schwarzenegger (Kindergarten Cop), Michael Hordern (Merlin), Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Richard Harris (Albus Dumbledore), Guy Henry (Pius Thicknesse), Alan Rickman (Severus Snape), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) and Melania (although she already has her hands full with young Barron). But the chances that anyone can keep the man-baby president from peeing all over the White House remain slim to none, whether by muscle, intimidation or magic.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
According to Trump, it is "very legal" and "very cool" to lie through his teeth to the American public, Congress and the FBI. While campaigning and since being elected president, Trump has repeatedly said things like: "I have no deals with Russia. I have no dealings with Russia. I have no deals that could happen in Russia, because we've stayed away. What do I know about Russia? I have nothing to do with Russia. I promise you I've never made ... I don't have any deals with Russia. I had Miss Universe there a couple of years ago other than that no. I had nothing to do [with Russia]." Like most liars, Trump can't keep his story straight. In reality, he and his family were secretly meeting with Russian agents, making backdoor deals, rigging the 2016 presidential election, and jeopardizing national security by compromising themselves.
According to NBC News, in a "highly unusual intervention by a president into a pending criminal case," Trump tweeted that Michael Cohen "lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence." WOW, if Trump served a "full and complete sentence" for every lie he told, he'd be serving till the end of time! (And perhaps beyond.)
Trump was blasting out "Happy" at a political event short hours after the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre. Pharrell Williams demanded that Trump "cease and desist" from using the song so inappropriately. Perhaps Pharrell can write a new campaign song for Trump called "Sappy."
From time to time Trump manages to do something that seems impossible. For instance, he released a campaign video that was too racist even for Fox News!
Donald Trump really is trying to raise American living standards. Particularly those of ex-pornstars.—Nick Hall
Will Trump be yelling and tweeting "Lock her up!" about the apple of his sty, after learning that Ivanka has been using her private email for government business? #LockHerUp #LockUpIvanka
Trump has made his decision: Mohammed bin Salman may be a murderous bastard, but he's not going to let that stop the US from selling billions in advanced weapons to Saudi Arabia. And we all know how well that policy worked with Saddam Hussein!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Sometimes the best Trump jokes are created by The Donald himself. For instance, Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan called it "an absolute joke" after Trump claimed to have a "magic wand" for manufacturing on the same day GM closed five plants. GM is laying off more than 10% of its North American work force, while increasing production in China and Mexico. The layoffs will have a domino effect, as GM suppliers follow suit. The final figure could be 50,000 layoffs or more. And Trump was a prime factor with his trade wars, tariffs and rolling back of vehicle economy standards, which hurt the sales of smaller American-made cars. Now China and Mexico are the winners and American workers are the losers, thanks to Trump's "magic wand."
Are you allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence? — Donald Trump tweet from June 2014
You're about to find out, Benedict Donald! — Mark Hamill aka Luke Skywalker
September 11, 2018: On the anniversary of 9-11, a federal judge imposes a gag order on "Red Sparrow" spy Maria Butina, inspiring a new round of S&M-themed internet memes!
CON-fused say why man who live in glass tower run around naked throwing bricks? (Trump is, essentially, the don of a mob family who decided it would be a great idea to "go public" by running for president. His "university" was a scam. His "charity" was a scam. His golf courses were apparently funded by Russian mob money laundered through Deutsche Bank. He turned the White House into another profit center for his mob operations. When a movie is made about his life it should titled The Gaud Father.)
Trump has more flip-flops than spring break on a Florida beach. A few days before Christmas, he was back to his original position of being "proud" to own the government shutdown. How many Tiny Tims and Tinas will suffer on both sides of his imaginary wall, thanks to Ebenezer Scrooge McTrump? Trump threatened not to sign any legislation unless it funds “perfect Border Security.” But everyone knows a mega-expensive wall would not come close to providing "perfect border security," since people can sail around it, fly over it, tunnel under it, use ladders to climb over it, or just stroll across the undefended Canadian border. (Although since Trump became president, it's more likely that people will cross the border into Canada.) Trump has apparently given up on an actual wall and will now settle for "artistically designed" see-through steel slats. But a see-through fence is not going to produce "perfect border security," so Trump is once again just dog-whistling "Dixie."―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
The biased media should stop claiming that so many Trump associates are being sent to jail. They’re just moving to rooms with artistically designed steel slats that you can see through!―Matthew Miller
Hey libtards! Can the fake news! If you really care about the truth, stop calling Trump the Wall Nut ... be accurate and call him the Fence Fantasist!
After visiting Canada for a meeting of the G7, Donald Trump remarked that it was "a really great overseas trip."—Nick Hall
It is FAKE NEWS that Trump is not a history expert. You just have to spell it correctly: "his story."—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Trump is not a dispenser of "fake news." He goes yugely beyond that with FAKE SPEWS.
Trump says fake news has to end. I agree. Lock down his Twitter account and slap duct tape over his nasty lying mouth.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Liberals call Trump a monster because he allegedly had sex with a porn star just weeks after his son was born, didn't wear a condom and after he finished rolled over, turned on Shark Week and ordered fried chicken. To me that makes him an inspiration. He's the Motley Crue of politics!—Leo Kearse
Trump hates the first amendment, loves the second amendment, and has no idea what the third amendment is.—Sid Singh
Trump has a very clear interpretation of the Bill of Rights: everything Trump does is right.
Trump loves capitalism but hates free trade, which is like being a Destiny's Child fan who hates Beyoncé.—Alex Kealy
Want to know the real reason Trump loves Kim Jong-un so much? It's because Lil' Kim is the only world leader with smaller hands. And he's the only "head" of state with more comical hair than Trump. What's not to like, when narcissism is the sole measuring rod?—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
The weird thing about Trump's presidency is that I now actually hope that there is a shadowy cabal deep within the US government dedicated to undermining the democratically elected leader.—Alex Kealy
Melania Trump called herself "the most bullied person in the world." Sadly, that's what happens when you marry the world's biggest cyberbully!—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
The Donald loomed like a tropical depression over France, insulting the French people for needing American assistance against Germany while forgetting or not knowing that France bailed out the American revolutionaries first. There wouldn't have been a United States without France's support. Trump is the ultimate Ugly American.
Asking Trump to be more civil is like asking a spitting cobra to be less venomous.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Other presidents have been world leaders. But Trump's a world pleader: "Please give us more money! Please don't compete with us! Please take all the refugees so we don't have to take any, or just let the children and their mothers rot and die! Please! Please! Please!" (During his campaign Trump bragged that he "wins by whining," so this is not accidental.)
Trump made the November 2018 elections all about himself and his agenda. He received his answer from record numbers of American voters: FU A$$hole.
Under Trump the United States has become the land of the plea and the home of the knave.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Call Trump the Banana Republican after he threatened to use "law enforcement" to stop votes from being counted in Florida. Joe Scarborough correctly pointed out that Trump is turning the US into a third-world country.
Trump called Stormy Daniels "Horseface" and a "total con" in one of his nastier tweets (which is saying a lot). Stormy had the perfect rejoinder: "Game on, Tiny!" and she also noted his "shortcomings."
Thanks to Trump scientists have finally been able to prove that men with small hands do indeed have small sex organs (and small minds as well).—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Trump finally admitted that he's a nationalist. But in his haste to tweet, he left out the word "white."—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Ted Cruz is such a funny guy, by which I don't mean humorous. Cruz cracked a joke about the death of Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick by saying that when his opponent got in a car with Joe Kennedy, "it may be the first time in history anyone's ever asked a Kennedy to drive!" Once again we see how little women's lives matter to the GOP's alpha males.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Trump just proclaimed a National Day of Prayer. That's like Hugh Hefner calling for a National Day of Celibacy or Ted Bundy taking a short break from serial killing.
White men really are superior, according to a renowned expert! Ann Coulter, commenting on the Kavanaugh rape allegations, insisted that "there has never been a more pacific, less rapey creature than the white male of Western European descent." Coulter might want to crack a history book or two. Has she never heard of the Holocaust, the Trail of Tears, American slavery, the Crusades, the Inquisitions, the ethnic cleansing of the New World, etc.? As Mark Twain once observed, one of the great lies is that the white man is any less savage than the other savages. And, as Yogi Berra put it, "You could look it up."—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Prepare for a new form of the "bump and grind"! Trump said he and North Korean serial killer Kim Jong-un "fell in love" because of Kim's undoubtedly flattering "beautiful letters." And this time the bromance will be consummated because a top Pyongyang official just said "f* you" to denuclearization.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Donald Trump weenie jokes:
Stormy Daniels described Trump's penis as "smaller than average" but "not freakishly small."
"He knows he has an unusual penis," Daniels said, "It has a huge mushroom head. Like a toadstool..."
"I lay there, annoyed that I was getting fucked by a guy with Yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart..."
"It may have been the least impressive sex I'd ever had, but clearly, he didn't share that opinion."
Trump issued a four-word tweet after the funerals of John McCain and Aretha Franklin: Make America GRATE again!

Brett Kavanaugh is a real card! He's the "get out of jail FREE card" in Trump's version of Monopoly.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Paul Manafort's name is prophetic. He will soon man a fort (a stockade known as a "federal prison").—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Donald Trump, Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen are partners in grime.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Thanks to The Donald we now live in the days of whine and poses!
Trump Only Hires the Best People!
Trump said of Attorney General Jeff Sessions: "This guy is mentally retarded. He's this dumb Southerner."
Rudy Giuliani, acting as Trump's lawyer and speaking for him, called Michael Cohen a "pathological manipulator" and "liar."
Trump called former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman a "dog" and "a crazed, crying lowlife."
Reince Priebus reportedly called the presidential bedroom where Trump does most of his tweeting "the Devil's workshop."
White House chief of staff John Kelly told colleagues that Trump "an idiot. It's pointless to try to convince him of anything. He's gone off the rails. We're in Crazytown."
Trump Space Cadet and Space Force Memes

Michael Cohen's lips have their own legal strategy: Flip. Flop. Flap.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Trump's legal strategy is sound: the President cannot be indicted because he has work to do! He can grope, rape, murder, lie and collude with impunity, because he's too busy to bother with the law!
GOP = Goosesteppers obeying Putin.
The Trump-inspired NFL anthem policy is the sports equivalent of a shotgun wedding.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Oh really? Was Trump being honest when he claimed that he only hires the best people? It seems more likely that he only hires the worst people, based on what he and his cronies have said about Omarosa ("wacky," "nasty" and a "loser" who was "nothing but problems"), Jeff Sessions ("very weak" and "disgraceful"), Anthony Scaramucci (human Brylcreem who lasted all of ten days), Betsy DeVos ("ditsy"), Michael Cohen ("pathological liar"), Michael Flynn (now a convict), Paul Manafort and Rick Gates (on trial for fraud), Kirstjen Nielson (a "total failure"), Wilbur Ross ("past his prime"), George Papadopoulos ("liar"), Reince Priebus ("leaker"), Sean Spicer (the butt of some of SNL's funniest skits in recent memory), et al.

Trump's new campaign song is ICE ICE Baby.
Mr. Art of the Deal admits he's been using immigrant children as a negotiating tool, which makes him the tool of the Devil.

The new political equation? Vote = Alt-Write-Delete.
Trump has the face that launched a thousand shocks.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
It is FAKE NEWS that Trump's foundation is not a legitimate charity! Trump's charity is absolutely fulfilling its prime directive by showering Trump with fame and acclaim, using other people's money! And Trump is so deeply mired in debt that he's a charity case himself, so decorating his golf clubs and buying life-sized pictures of himself is perfectly kosher!
It's time to rename Memorial Day. Let's call it Mem-Boor-ial Day, or Boor-More-ial Day, after Trump crowed that fallen American soldiers would be very happy with and proud of his accomplishments! Trump was almost giddy with happiness, and concluded his tweet with "Nice!"
Truant Trump recently had a Starburst Outburst when he threw two pieces of candy at German Chancellor Angela Merkel during one of his temper tantrums.

At least Trump pulls out when he promises to. If only his father had done the same!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Better cancel the Nobel Peace Prize celebration. In his letter canceling the Singapore summit, Trump said that only his personal dialogue with Jong-Un matters. The world hanging in the balance is nothing compared to Trump's personal relationships. The world being saved matters not a whit unless Trump is treated nicely. No harsh words, unless Trump is spouting them! There was also a thinly veiled threat that the US can destroy North Korea at Trump's whim. Such diplomacy!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"

As reported by CNN, the White House calligrapher now has a higher-level security clearance than Jared Kushner, the former Secretary of Everything.
Trump's doctor predicted he will live a long life. As a result, he's now treating Melania for depression.—Conan O'Brien
Trump continues to amaze us with his incredible "intelligence" and "world's best memory." When Melania returned to the White House after spending six days in the hospital after kidney surgery, The Donald misspelled her name in a tweet, calling her "Melanie."
Former Playboy model Karen McDougal has publicly apologized to Melania for having sex with her husband. In related news, Trump's parents have publicly apologized for having sex and conceiving him.
The Trump presidency is a joke, but it's no laughing matter.―Graydon Carter
"Pretty sure dumb whores go to hell," someone wrote on Stormy Daniels' Twitter feed. "Whew!" she replied. "Glad I'm a smart one."

Was there a good omen recently—a silver lining in the very dark clouds? When Mostik the cat was the first crosser of the Kerch Strait Bridge, making it over before Russian strongman Vladimir Putin, was that a sign that Pussy Riot will also come out ahead?

The Donald and I have a lot in common: we both live in New York, we both play golf, and we both fantasize about his daughter Ivanka.―Jeffrey Ross
I know that he's taken some flack lately, but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald. And that's because he can finally get back to the issues that matter, like: Did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?―Barack Obama
Donald, we all know about your credentials and breadth of experience. For example—no, seriously—just recently, in an episode of Celebrity Apprentice you didn't blame Lil Jon or Meatloaf—you fired Gary Busey. And these are the kinds of decisions that would keep me up at night.―Barack Obama

Alec Baldwin called Trump the "head writer" of Saturday Night Live because "90 percent" of his Trump impersonation lines are actually direct quotes.
Why doesn't Jimmy Fallon join in the fun more often? He says Trump is "too serious" to joke about!
Donald Trump just announced the first immigrants to be deported: Lady Liberty, a French import, along with her huddled masses yearning to be free.―Michael R. Burch
Donald Trump: 666 Mark of the Beast? This is no joke, because the most expensive single building ever sold in the United States was purchased by the Trump family, at 666 Fifth Avenue, a street that symbolizes money (Mammon). The price was $1.8 billion, which is three more sixes. Another Trump tower at One Journal Square will be 666 feet high with a price tag of $666 million. And still that is just the tip of the 666 iceberg. The founder of the original Trump company died on 6-6-6 and her maiden name may shock you: Elizabeth Christ. You can click the hyperlink to learn more (no annoying ads or requests for money; this is a public service). Yes, it does sound like the plot of a new OMEN movie, but in this case fact really is stranger than fiction. Ironically, evangelical Christian leaders are now lining up to endorse Trump. Have the very elect been deceived, just as the Hebrew prophets predicted thousands of years ago when they warned us to listen for the Trump of Doom? The Antichrist has been prophesied to be a sort of "reverse twin" of Jesus Christ, as if Lucifer became flesh and sought to become the Savior of the world. And Trump has certainly been proclaiming himself as the only possible Savior. For instance, at a campaign rally in Kiawah Island, S.C., the egomaniacal Trump made it clear that he, not God Almighty, is the only possible defender of Christians. Discussing ISIS, Trump said, "Their primary goal is to get to the Vatican. If and when the Vatican is attacked, the pope would only wish and have prayed that Donald Trump would have been elected president." In other words, it is useless for people of faith to pray to God for protection. Christians should pray for Trump to save them. After a terrorist attack in Pakistan on Easter Sunday, Trump tweeted: "Another radical Islamic attack, this time in Pakistan, targeting Christian women & children. At least 67 dead, 400 injured. I alone can solve." No compassion, no condolences, just Trump bragging on Trump. And what arrogance! Who but the Antichrist would claim to be the only possible savior of Christians? Who but the Antichrist would claim to be a Christian while denying the need to ask God for forgiveness? Who but the Antichrist would denigrate Holy Communion by reducing it to a "little cracker" and a "little wine," when these represent the sacred body and blood of Jesus Christ to real Christian believers?

I just love the smell of irony in the morning. The FOSTA anti-prostitution bill requires the signature of Donald J. Trump, whose middle initial stands for "John." Trump's been paying women 10K for sex, then 100K or more to buy their silence about how he procures their services. Our president is his own pimp!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
First Trump vowed that Mexico would pay for the wall. Then it was taxpayers. Now Trump is dunning our men and women in uniform. Next on his list is the Girl Scouts, with a YUGE cookie sale.
"Trade wars are good, and easy to win." So declared Donald Trump a few weeks ago, after announcing tariffs on steel and aluminum. Actually, trade wars are rarely good, and not at all easy to win—especially if you have no idea what you’re doing. And boy, do these people not know what they're doing!―The New York Times
Vladimir Putin poisoned a Russian intelligence agent. Trump called to congratulate him and get tips on how to take out Robert Mueller.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
On November 9, 2016, Vladimir Putin became the first person to have won presidential elections in Russia and the United States.
Trump gives new meaning to the term "March Madness." He's mad as a March hare, he's marching us to disaster, and his hair's insane!
"I won't rule out direct talks with Kim Jong-un. I just won't," Trump said. "As far as the risk of dealing with a madman is concerned, that's his problem, not mine." In a rare blip of honesty Trump just admitted that Jong-un will be dealing with a madman!
The Trump plot thickens? Hell, it's way past hardened concrete at this point.―Ted ontheleftcoast in a Daily Kos thread
Jimmy Kimmel, choking on tears after 17 Florida high school students were murdered in yet another senseless massacre, said: "You say this is a mental health issue, but one of your first acts as president, Mr. Trump, was to roll back the regulations that were designed to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill. You did that. Your party voted to repeal the mandates on coverage for mental health. I agree this is a mental illness issue. Because if you don’t think we need to do something about it, you’re obviously mentally ill."
The NRA's Wayne LaPierre told CPAC that the right to bear arms "is not bestowed by man, but granted by God to all Americans as our American birthright." That's right: auburn-haired, fair-skinned Rambo-Jesus wants all his disciples packing heat!

Trump claimed not to be afraid of the NRA. But when a student asked if he'd return $30 million in NRA blood money, Trump turned white as a KKK sheet and fainted.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
After Trump claimed he would have run in and fought an AR-15-armed mass murderer bare-handed, Stephen Colbert asked, "What are you gonna do? Run in and stab him with your bone spurs?" Colbert also expressed doubts that the walrus-like Trump is able to "run." Did he mean that he would waddle in, then flop down in exhaustion, causing an earthquake to incapacitate the killer?

Trump is NOT a flip-flopper! He's simply a man without positions, morals or a clue.
General John F. Kelly had a simple explanation for how he became Trump's head nanny: "God punished me!"
It is clearly FAKE NEWS that Melania was not qualified for an Einstein visa. She is undoubtedly a genius at disrobing, attracting rich, powerful men, and having them provide her every need! She even chain-migrated her parents over. Now she's living in the White House, yet doesn't have to sleep in the same bed with Trump. She gets to amuse herself with little ironic jokes, like saying her "main priority" is to end cyber-bullying when her husband is the world's biggest and nastiest cyber bully. How can anyone possibly deny such staggering genius? We should all bow down to Melania in awe, then buy her self-help books!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Let's get this straight. Trump attorney Michael Cohen paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 out of the goodness of his heart and his own personal checkbook. But he had to set up a shell company—a Delaware LLC—to do it. Nothing suspicious about that! And of course Trump wasn't guilty of anything, so it wasn't hush money. Everyone knows that Trump is as faithful as the day is long! If you believe that cockamamie story, I have some political swampland that you will undoubtedly want to purchase at outlandish prices.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Was Michael Wolff exaggerating about how bad things were in the Trump White House? Not according to Reince Priebus, who held Trump's tiny little hands and burped him on a daily basis. Priebus said we should take anything we heard and multiply it 50 times. And this is from a Republican nanny who says he loves Trump and wishes him well!
Trump says we should "Hire the best and fire the worst." Great idea! Let's start at the top and work our way down! #DumpTrump #CropGOP

On fire and furious.
Impeach the orange.
Not my Cheeto!

Much Ado About a Nothingburger
Q: Why is Donald Trump terrified of sharks?
A: Because he's a whale, duh!
—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
According to porn star Stormy Daniels, Donald Trump watched Shark Week obsessively and was "riveted" and "terrified" by sharks. Daniels quoted the Great White Snark saying: "I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks! I hope all the sharks die!" Her account rings true, because who could make up something so bizarre? Furthermore, Trump apparently confirmed Daniels' account when in 2013 he tweeted about his hatred of sharks: "Sharks are last on my list—other than perhaps the losers and haters of the World!" We know how Trump hates all those dark-skinned losers and haters in shithole countries. So he must really, really hate sharks with a passion!
It is FAKE NEWS that Trump gets no exercise. He gets plenty of exercise chasing porn stars around his bedroom in his tighty whities!—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Thanks to Celebrity Apprentice producer Mark Burnett, we don’t have to watch reality shows anymore ... because we’re living in one.―Jimmy Kimmel
More specifically, we are now living in Celebrity Apprentice President.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Dennis Rodman has more foreign policy experience than Jared Kushner. That's for real.―Jimmy Kimmel
Or is it for surreal?
The Dreamers? Ultimately, Donald Trump believes that if these kids want to be American, they have to do it the right way: by marrying Donald Trump.―Jimmy Kimmel
Trump has found the perfect political bargaining CHIP ... the lives and futures of millions of innocent children he is supposed to represent.
John Kelly: President Trump's thinking on the wall has evolved.
Donald Trump: It is fake news that I have ever evolved, or that I think!
John Kelly: It won't be be a wall, it won't work and Mexico won't pay for it.
Donald Trump: Will too! And why is everyone being so mean to me?
Insiders say Widdle Donnie Whinydiaper had a temper tantrum, because General Kelly made him sound like a child who needs to be managed!
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream.
Donald Trump has a scheme.
On Martin Luther King day, Trump announced: "I too have a dream ... a big beautiful dream ... getting rid of the Dreamers!" Then he got back to what's really import, playing golf.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
It is FAKE NEWS that Donald Trump is inconsistent, flighty and variable as the wind! There is one area in which Trump is tremendously consistent. BIGLY consistent. YUGELY consistent. Whenever a girl or woman is abused, Trump ALWAYS sympathizes with the abuser, whether it's Roy "Score" Moore, Steve "Bam Bam" Bannon, "Gory" Corey Lewandowski, Roger "Dodger" Ailes, Bill "the Shill" O'Reilly, Andy "Putz" Puzder, or Rob "Rock 'em and Sock 'em" Porter. Why? ...
Predators of a feather
―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition
Hell, Trump told USA Today that if his daughter Ivanka experienced sexual harassment in the workplace, he "would like to think she would find another career or find another company." No need to punish the male abusers, just get rid of the female victims! Trump also told Howard Stern that it would be "okay" for him to call Ivanka a "piece of ass." If that's how Trump feels about his own daughter, just imagine how he feels about women in general.
Trump is still having trouble sticking to the teleprompter. For instance, he recently read: "We're going to win lots of elections!" However, he missed the tail end: "for Democrats."
Trump is, indeed, a Stable Genius. He's like the kid who rakes muck in a barn full of pigs, donkeys and jackasses.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Trump was actually correct, for once. The world is full of shitholes. The biggest one's between his endlessly flapping lips!
Trump is doing a remarkable job of making China great again, by alienating country after country after country. Our loss of international prestige is China's gain.
How quickly they forget! Trump says Democrats are "un-American" and "treasonous" for failing to applaud him. But then Trump must be un-American and treasonous for having failed to applaud President Obama. Lock him up!
Trump is a man of his word! As promised, during his State of the Disunion speech Trump really did extend an "open hand." He then used it to repeatedly slap down the DREAMers and other immigrants.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Repealing DACA in order to MAGA is a load of CACA.―Stephen Colbert
It's ironic that Trump wants to end chain migration when the German Drumpfs are its poster children.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Why did Trump go to Davos? Obviously, to persuade Erna Solberg, the Prime Minister of Norway, to export more fair, blonde Ivankas to America! What can the US offer in return? Some of our "beautiful clean coal," of course!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Retiring Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) likened the GOP to a dysfunctional family: "Dad's drunk again but we don’t talk about it."
Trump has taken the "Art of the Deal" to unprecedented levels. He just announced that Norway will spend mega-bucks on the F-52, a plane that doesn't exist. Talk about stealth technology!
Speaking of Norway, if Trump was as smart as he claims, he'd know that Norwegians have no interest in vastly lowering their standard of living by emigrating to the United States. That would be like the Rockefellers migrating to a trailer park!
Why would Trump call nations of darker-skinned people "shitholes" and call for more Norwegian emigrants? He has a very simple plan to make American great again: import more Donalds and Ivankas! (He also seems to be planning to run for Grand Wizard of the KKK after the impeachment.)
When Trump tells other Americans to "get smart," he clearly means "smart" like himself and Maxwell Smart.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Omarosa saying Trump is "racial" but not a "racist" is like saying Hitler was "fanatical" but not a "fanatic."
President P***ygrabber's new book will be titled The Art of Copping a Feel.
The "Trump Effect" is sweeping the world like the shadows of Sauron's ring-wraiths rising over Mordor. Now multitudes of sociable, peace-loving Hobbits are endangered, especially the darker-skinned ones. Fortunately we don't have to risk our lives to defeat Orange Sauron and his trolls. All we have to do is vote.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
There's a new movie in the works about the Trump-Bannon bromance: Fatal Detraction.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
After Michael Moore announced his intention to frack within sight of Mar-a-Lago, hinky Ryan Zinke rushed south to declare Florida off limits. Do we smell an orange rat?
What goes around, comes around. Trump’s top policy adviser, Stephen Miller, has called out an “angry, vindictive person” whose “grotesque comments are so out of touch with reality.” While everyone will assume he's talking about his boss, Miller was actually chiding Steve Bannon. Which is like Saruman berating Gollum for not being nicer to baby Hobbits.—Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
How incredibly intelligent is Trump? Let him explain the extent of his genius in his own words ...
I went to the best colleges for college!"—Donald J. Trump
I was a very excellent student!—Donald J. Trump
Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability, and being, like, really smart!—Donald J. Trump
I know words. I have the best words!—Donald J. Trump
Why are we not convinced?
Trump and his administration are also very challenged spellers: covfefe, tapp, councel, unpresidented, honered, Denmakr, thr, "here by" followed by "hearby" in an attempted correction, misspelling the name of British Prime Minister Theresa May three times, misspelling "attacker" as "attaker" twenty times, etc.
And Trump's ability to pronounce the "best words" is also highly questionable: yuge (for huge), diversary (for diversity), premedication (for premeditation), youfenism (for euphemism), Nahzees (for Nazis), rusher (for Russia), Mizzuria (for Missouri), Youtar (for Utah), Nuhvahduh (for Nevada), Jeruzu'um and Jerushalem (for Jerusalem), peninshula (for peninsula), internate (for internet), President Ulicious S. Grant, Two Corinthians, and even "God Bless the United Shates"!
Michael Moore threatened to begin fracking at Mar-a-Lago to protest Trump's decision to open nearly all U.S. offshore waters to drilling for oil and natural gas. "Our fracking off the coast of Mar-a-Lago begins right after Labor Day," Moore tweeted. "I’ve already got the rig — a beautiful Halliburton G-0008 fracking system with a monster Caterpillar engine!"
Israel is naming a high-speed rail station after Trump. It will be called the Armageddon Express.
Trump will declare North Korea a state sponsor of terror.―New York Post
North Korea will declare Trump a pate tonsure of error.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
On the surface Hope Hicks seems to be the perfect Trumpite: she's attractive, loyal to a fault, and the ultimate a$$-kissing sycophant. What's not for Trump to like? And yet how can Hope ever hope to compare to the unattainable Ivanka? Truth be told, Hicks is hopeless!
TIME magazine disputed Trump's claim that he turned down the opportunity to be TIME's person of the year, by pointing out that Trump is a walking, talking ego, not a "person" per se.
I'm a liberal, but I have to object! It is obviously fake news that Tweety Twump has no real accomplishments! In reality, Tweetle-Dumb has accomplished the impossible twice. After all, he made George W. Bush seem wise and Richard M. Nixon virtuous!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"

Tweety's no conservative; he's a conswervative (emphasis on "con").―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
TwumpCawe is cwearly a wush to fudgement!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Tweety thought he saw a puddy tat ... so he groped it!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Trump has been demoted from Big Hoss to Little Don for what Breitbart called Don's Amnesty Bonanza. Truly, Amnesty Don has done the impossible: he's united the Left and Right in fire & fury over immigration! Will the wall be his downfall?
I find it ironic that the only tender, endearing nickname coined by Trump—at least that I have encountered to date—is Honeybunch. That's what porn star Stormy Daniels said Trump called her while cheating on his wife. Then he had her spank him with a Forbes magazine with Ivanka's picture on the cover. (MAGA=Make America Gag Again!)
It took Trump three decades to bust all his casinos, but he managed to shut down the US government in one year. What a dealmaker! Anyone tired of "winning" yet?
Trump "love" is a curious thing ...
does he love dark children half as much as bling?

In the Spirit of the Season: Trump Christmas Jokes and Puns
There will not be a Nativity scene on Capitol Hill this Christmas season. This isn't for religious reasons, but because no one could three Wise Men or a Virgin in the nation's capitol. There was no problem, however, finding plenty of asses to fill the stable.
Have a very scary Trump Christmas!
Thanks to the Trumps the eerily-decorated White House now has "one of the scariest hallways in America," according to Gizmodo. Adjectives used to describe the Christmastime White House include "dark," "ominous," "diabolical," "spooky" and "Satanic." Comparisons have been drawn to Snow White’s escape route from the Huntsman, The White Witch’s Narnian forest, and that lovely spot where Voldemort drank a unicorn’s blood. But perhaps we should simply admit that "a cold day in hell" has finally arrived.
The holiday in question, in case you were checking your calendars, is Christmas, which in Melania Trump’s mind apparently conjures up the naked terror of running through a dark forest, alone, pursued by wraithlike shadows and the grasping claws of brittle, dead branches, the only sound the cackling of the ancient witch who will grant your wish to be rich and famous with a designer wardrobe and a gold-plated toilet … for a price.―Katie Rife
The Trump White House, with Melania Antoinette watching ballerinas dance, is remarkably Stepford-Wife-ish. But at least she casts a shadow, however ghostly!
"Photos were released yesterday of first lady Melania Trump decorating the White House for the holidays, though I'm not sure a rope ladder counts as a decoration."―Seth Meyers
Fabulous news for the Trump administration! According to DailyKos, "tens" attended the Trump tree lighting ceremony! (That is not "tens" as in supermodels, but as in small groups of white supremacists who fervidly dream of "all-white" Christmases.)―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Trump, for once, has kept his word by putting the "Christ" back in Christmas. On a daily basis, he makes 300 million Americans gasp and say "Jesus Christ, what is Trump doing now?"―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
With Trump at the reins, instead of Santa's Sleigh we now have Satan's Slay.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Christmas is coming!
Tycoons are getting fat!
Please put donations
in the Fat Cat's Hat.
If you haven't got a penny
he'll toss you in the stew,
but if you've got ten billion
then may TRUMP bless you!

Raptors of a feather
—Michael R. Burch
Donald Trump was not TIME's man of the year, but thanks to his incessant whining and plaintive demands for attention, TIME has made him its Man-Baby of the year for 2017! According to the grapes-of-wrath-vine, TIME will also award The Donald a Golden Diaper that matches his Golden Commode. Furthermore, Trump remains the favorite in the race for other awards: Fake News Reporter of the Year, Race-Baiter of the Year, Nazi Sympathizer of the Year, Warmonger of the Year, Male Chauvinist of the Year, and Sexual Predator of the Year.
OMG, just when we think the Race Grater can't get any more inappropriate, Trump outdoes himself! While meeting with Navajo code talkers, The Grate White Frother made a racist crack about "Pocahontas" and then, with condescension oozing from his pores, patted one of the elderly WWII heroes, saying: "But you know what, I like you. You are special people." Another truly cringe-worthy moment from Old Dickory.
It was a very touching scene when Donald Trump—gasping for breath on his political deathbed—begged Sludge Roy Moore to "Win one for the GROPER!"
Ah, so romantic! It was clearly a case of "love at first bite" when two political pod people—each a Preying Mantis—finally connected by entangling antennae while fully engaging masticating mandibles. It was as if creatures from Predator and Alien embraced, shared a slobbery wet kiss, vowed to "true" to one another, then started looking for warm-blooded humans to devour!
Later, Moore Iago & Co. celebrated Thanksgiving by chuckling about all the evangelical turkeys they'd plucked! Playboy Roy Moore was served by 14-year-olds in cute cowgirl costumes with ultra-short, tight skirts. Dining in pontific splendor at Mire-a-Lago, in between nibbles of succulent white breasts, the American Iago tweeted out the joyful news that the Messiah has indeed returned, in the form of The Donald Himself!
Trump says we don't need another liberal in the Senate. What we really need is another alpha male sexual predator with octopus-like tentacles, like Trump! Someone who's a Gliberal and Fiberal, like Trump!
Ask not what you can do for your country, ask how your daughters can service Moore Trump & Co.
Ivanka Trump said there's a special place in hell for people who prey on children. But then her father told Alabamans to vote for Roy "Score" Moore. Does that make our president the Devil, his Beast, or just an especially perverse Hellfire Imp?
Jeff Flake says that he would wouldn't vote for the Incredible Sincredible Roy Moore.
The White Pride Piper is back to his race-baiting ways. Trump tweeted IT WAS ME!, yelling in ALL CAPS that LaVar Ball should kneel and kiss his ring, like a dutiful plantation slave. When LaVar declined, Trump called him an "ungrateful fool." If there are two things Trumplethinskin can't stand, it's uppity women and uppity people with darker skin.
According to Trump, a black guy who shoplifts should be locked up for 10 years, a black guy who kneels during the anthem should be fired, and a white guy who repeatedly molests and propositions underage girls should be in the US Senate. But if a white guy gropes enough women and brags about it, he should be the American president!
Society is now one polish’d horde,
Form’d of two mighty tribes, the Bores and Bored.

Amusing Trump Nicknames from High-Level Sources
THE MORON (Secretary of State Rex Tillerson used the term during a Pentagon meeting on July 20, 2017 with national security experts and Trump cabinet members in attendance.)
THE BOY SPOUTER (Rex Tillerson, who once headed the Boy Scouts, was very angry with Trump's self-serving and moronic speech to the Boy Scouts.)
BEDROCK (Rex Tillerson admits that he is Blarney to his bumbling caveman boss, President Flintstone, when he says they share "bedrock values.")
GOLDEN WRECKING BALL (Sarah Plain was not trying to be funny, but ended up being all too accurate ... so sad!)
AMNESTY DON (Steve Bannon of Breitbart hurled the ultimate white supremacist epithet at Trump.)
THE WINNING WHINER (The Donald bragged about how he "wins" by "whining" during an interview on CNN's New Day program.)
But there is a silver lining in the very dark presidential clouds: When this is how your friends describe you, and how you describe yourself, at least you don't have to worry about your enemies!
Call it Funny Money because the Republicans and their rich patrons will soon be laughing to the bank with your hard-earned money. How do they plan to shift trillions of dollars to the richest one percenters? By getting rid of estate taxes and lowering other taxes the rich already pay at lower effective rates than their secretaries (as Warren Buffet pointed out, admitting that it was very wrong). Why did the last two Republican candidates for president refuse to release their tax returns? Because two of America's richest men have probably paid next to nothing in taxes for a decade, or longer. Everyone knows it's a rigged system, and now Republicans want to rig it even more against the hardworking American middle class. It's a Shamerican Tax Plan, headed by Uncle Scam himself, the greatest scammer of all time. How will Trump & Co. fund their Reverse Robin Hood Scheme? By robbing you of your tax deductions for medical expenses and insurance, state income tax, sales tax, etc. Voting for Re-Flub-Lycans is like slitting one's own throat and the throats of one's children and grandchildren, who will be paying for these "tax cuts" with their blood, sweat and tears for the rest of their lives. So sad, but Trump needs more rich people to pay sky-high membership fees to join his ritzy golf clubs! Hell, the Trumpster's probably playing golf right now, using the presidency as free advertising while taxpayers pay millions of dollars per round for his security entourage.
Stop obsessing over who is taking the knee. Ex-Trump advisor Carter Page has just taken the Fifth.―@GeorgeTakei (aka Mr. Sulu)
If you're sitting on a roof in Texas right now, please take comfort in knowing your president won Missouri. By a lot.―@stonekettle
Hurricane Donald was the third category 5 storm to hit Puerto Rico. The Donald was quick to remind hurricane-battered Puerto Ricans that his Wall Street friends (i.e., his donors) must be repaid. It's so nice to know that the world's most powerful man has his priorities in order! Trump tweeted: "Much of the Island was destroyed, with billions of dollars owed to Wall Street and the banks, which, sadly, must be dealt with." Yes, never mind the deaths, the orphans, the homeless. What really matters is that hedge fund managers and bankers get nice, fat paychecks!
"I have no reaction. The mayor's living on a cot, and I hope the President has a good day of golf." This was the response of Russel L. Honoré, the retired general appointed by Bush to take over the federal response to Katrina in 2005. (We think this one is especially worth copying and pasting, sharing and tweeting.)
Carmen Yulín Cruz is a hero.
Trump is a zero.
―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Watergate was nothing compared to Floodgate. Trump was closer to a flood in a Russian hotel room than while campaigning and selling overpriced ball caps in Texas. Then the floodgates of his racism hit devastated Puerto Rico like a cyclone. Hurricane Donald is never happy unless he's stirring up white resentment against people with darker skin. This lily-white child of privilege detests underprivileged minorities with a real passion. The white heroes of the recovery in Texas are praiseworthy. The darker zeroes of Puerto Rico must be reminded that they are lazy, shiftless and need to pay their debts. Trump's disdain for people of color abundantly colors his responses to natural disasters.
Things are getting so confusing! We now have three FLOTUSes: Melania Antoinette, Ivana Trump (the ex-wife who claims to be the First Lady), and Ivanka Trump, the First-Lady-Daughter/Proxy-Wife! And who knows how many interns and maids Trump has been groping in the Ovary Office?
Donald Trump makes no sense. He claims to be a germaphobe, but then he brags about groping women's genitals, including Melania's! He's obviously repelled by the thought of women's body fluids, but where does he spend all his free time? Trump's like someone with hay fever who sleeps on a bed of straw, then can't understand why he's itching and sneezing all the time.
Trump is so divorced from the Truth, he should pay it alimony.―Elizabeth Harris Burch aka @Ladydragyn
Trump is a pampered white millionaire who can say and do anything he likes, including grabbing women's genitals without their permission. And yet The Donald claims it is "wrong" for black millionaires to kneel to express their dissatisfaction with white tyrants like Himself. Is there, perhaps, something wrong with this picture? Black men who merely kneel to protest injustice are SOBs. White men with semiautomatic weapons who march with skinheads, Nazis and the KKK are "fine" people and it's wrong for anyone oppose them. Isn't that how Hitler and his goons got started?
Trump called for a boycott of the NFL, then immediately broke the boycott by watching the Cowboys play the Cardinals (because he tweeted about watching the game).
White House lawyer Ty Cobb claimed that "it would be truly shocking" if Paul Manafort had "tried to monetize his relationship with the president." But why would that be so shocking, when Trump himself has blatantly monetized the presidency?
If the guy was running Dairy Queen, he’d be gone. This guy couldn’t work at The Gap. So why do we have to be victimized by his fecklessness, his ignorance? ... Let’s just stop whining about what a goon he is and figure out a way to take him aside and put him in a home.―David Letterman
Ya gotta give Trump props for his remarkable consistency. He always says the worst possible thing at the worst possible time!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Once again, Trump has done the impossible. He turned a tough-as-nails Marine general into a serial face palmer during his U.N. speech.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Kathy Griffin has finally come to her senses! She now says that she doesn't regret her decapitated Trump photo. And let's be honest ... isn't decapitating Trump a guilty fantasy that we all secretly share?―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"

I'm not sure the guy who holds fake press conferences, has a fake university, a fake foundation, fake hair, and a fake tan should be the one in charge of deciding what's real.—Seth Meyers
Steve Bannon told 60 Minutes that the mainstream media is trying to "destroy" Trump. However, Bannon neglected to mention that he is also trying to destroy Trump, and that Trump is trying very hard to destroy himself (and with remarkable success).―Michael R. Burch
Hamza bin Laden is apparently his father's anointed heir, according to recent Al-Qaeda propaganda which prominently features him. In related news, Hamza bin Laden has become a major Trump donor and Trump has appointed him to his swamp cabinet.
At long last, the Trump administration has identified three whistleblowers who will immediately hear The Donald screaming "You're fired!" The leakers' names are Truth, Patriotism and Integrity.
Putin' It All Together
Russia is certainly Putin' on the Ritz, as vodka glasses tinkle celebrations in the Kremlin! It is certainly much easier (and far less expensive) to destroy the United States from within, than to face its formidable military! Donald Trump (aka Comrade Trumputin) has wildly exceeded all expectations. Even Mr. Putin never dreamed that the Brooklyn Bolshevik could bring down the once-mighty USA this quickly!
Q: What do you call it when the Kremlin, Trump Tower and white nationalists unite?
A: Putin' on the Ritz Cracker.
Trump's heart and sole tweet: he urges his Twitter followers to "heel and be stronger than ever before." Now the alt-right has a new rallying cry: "Heil Heeler!"―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition" #HeilHeeler
The Best Donald Trump Russia Jokes
Donald Trump crowned Vladimir Putin's girlfriend Miss Universe in 2002. What are the odds? Was it payback for loads of dirty laundry washed clean by Putin's rubles?
Trump whitens and brightens his money the old-fashioned way. He launders it.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Let's hope Steve Bannon is as smart as he thinks he is. After his firing/resignation/ouster/whatever, Darth Bannon told the Weekly Standard that the Trump presidency is "over" without him. It was like Darth Vader saying, "Luke, I am no longer your Father and I want the key to the Death Star back!"―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
C'mon folks, please be fair! To call Trump a "lame duck" is an insult to handicapped waterfowl everywhere!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
A recent poll indicates that 36% of Republicans still approve of Trump. In related news, scientists have just confirmed that 36% of Republicans are deaf, blind and very, very dumb!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS FLASH: Donald Trump, the Remander-in-Chief, has ruled that transgenders cannot serve in the military. However, The Transgender Rearender, despite his self-proclaimed and acclaimed perfect health and virility, was rejected by the draft board. Therefore, The Gender Defender must be a transgender, and that explains The Gender Blender's saggy man-boobs and delicate ladyfingers!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS RASH: Scary Spicer has been replaced by Anthony Scaramucci, who is even scarier! Scaramooch in a rare instance of not dancing the Fandango once called Trump a "hack politician." But Mr. About-Face, yet another Gold Man Sucks hedge fund manager, has suddenly become Trump's biggliest and most gushingest Fan Boy. Did Mr. Moneybags offer him a raise? Now the Hacker Backer has Trump's back, or at least The Brownnoser's lips are planted firmly in Trump's pale orange posterior. Mr. Sicko Pants is busy making hay where the sun don't shine. Friends who once called Scaramucci the Mooch are now calling him the Smoocher. But we prefer the more accurate and descriptive A$$ki$$er. And while Moocholini has been identified by certain experts as belonging to a hyperactive species of Hedge Hog, there is a new report that he is actually a Scare Monkey. We, however, are actively investigating the possibility that Two-Faced Scaramucci is both! (We also believe he'll be the lead villain in the next Bratman movie.) At last word Little Tony Tutone had just cornered the world markets for bronzer and hair gel, while his blow-dryer is now the leading cause of global warming! Please stay "tuned" for further developments concerning Press Deputy DIP-pity-'Do.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS TRASH: Alas, Scaramooch will be forced to 'do the Tandango or go it alone, since his wife announced that she will divorce Mr. Irreconcilable Deferences because of his "naked political ambition." That may be a polite way of saying she will step gracefully aside so that The Premature Ejaculator and The Great Gropesby can consummate their obviously torrid love affair, after they were caught in flagrante delicto on national TV.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS GNASH: There's more bad news for Trump. His new White House Chief of Staff is a no-nonsense, straight-shooting former Marine: General John F. Kelly. Now that The ICE Man Cometh, what will become of Kelly's Zeroes? A longtime friend of Kelly's told The Washington Post that he "won't suffer idiots and fools." Obviously that means Low No IQ Trump is in deep sh*t! Does Kelly's refusal to abide idiots and fools make Trump a Lamé Duck President? Or perhaps a Flambé Duck President? On the brighter side, thanks to the hiring of Anthony "the Mooch" Scaramucci (yes, that is actually what he calls himself!) the Trump administration has finally come up with a unified message ... (drumroll please) ... ta da ... and the GRAND UNIFIED MESSAGE is ... Jeff Sessions sucks! And Reince Priebus sucks his own c*ck! And the Mooch would absolutely love to smooch Trump's c*ck! And, oh, yes ... (drumroll please) ... double ta da ... while Trump is being brownnosed and fellated by the Mooch, he is without-a-doubt the "most presidential" of presidents other than Abraham Lincoln! Thus King Gorge is immediately ready for Mount Rushmore (which would be sublimely appropriate, since he seems to be in more than a rush to mount the Mooch)!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS BACKLASH: Tracy Klugian described herself as "furious" about the canning of Anthony "the Conned Mic Gold Rush" Scaramucci. Klugian and other comedians are now demanding that President Trump appoint a replacement acceptable to the comedy industry. "Unless he picks someone of the order of Gary Busey or Snooki, it's going to get ugly," she warned. In related news, Andy Borowitz has estimated that the Smooch-Mooch's firing could cost the comedy industry four to five billion dollars! But the real loser in all this is Mario Cantone, who could have been the next Melissa McCarthy.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS SMASH: Folks, we can all take deep breaths and relax! Certain disaster has been averted, and things are back to merely abnormal in Trump's Bizarro World! We no longer have to fear a new Uncivil War between our government and mobs of homeless, starving comics! According to deniable sources, Kellyanne "Wrongway" Conway will soon swoop in backwards asswards to replace the seemingly irreplaceable Mooch-Pooch! One Trump lapdog can easily replace another! And the Con-Way Twit will undoubtedly observe Moocholini's prime directive: "Always provide comedians with the best possible material. Make their jobs as easy sleazy as possible!"―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"

NEWS CRASH: The Mandarin Candidate briefly interrupted his 17-day Bedminster golf vacation to fan the flames of the Apocalypse into a raging inferno: "North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States! They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before!" So forget the horrors of WWII, the Holocaust and Hiroshima. That was child's play compared to the power Terminator Trump will unleash on the world, if North Korea emulates the U.S. by issuing threats! But there is one thing the Fourth Dorkman of the Apocalypse wants to make perfectly clear to everyone: he absolutely will not let destroying the world interfere with his golf game!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS REHASH: We can now confirm that Trump is an extremely rare example of the Orange-Tufted Ostrich, the only creature known to spout death-inviting nonsense then bury its head up its own ass to avoid reality. In January, Twitler twittered "It won't happen!" in regard to North Korea developing nukes that can reach the United States. Tweetle-Dumb's head has been firmly up his ass ever since. A few months later, Harry Kazianis, director of defense studies at the Center for the National Interest, announced: "Today is the day that we can definitely say North Korea is a nuclear power. There is no more time to stick our heads in the sand and think we have months or years to confront this challenge." But at last report, Uncle Ream US was still refusing to budge. King Leer's voice was faintly heard, however, muttering something about fire, fury and horrors worse than Hiroshima and Nagasaki.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS HALF-FULL GLASS: There has been a reprieve, of sorts. While mADD Max is still dedicated to the proposition of destroying the world, he has been so busy playing golf and preening for cameras that he hasn't had time to do the finger-strengthening exercises necessary for his underdeveloped digits to key in the nuclear codes! So we may have a few more hours, or perhaps even days, before the nukes start flying. But please don't get your hopes up. Trump has the biggest and best golf courses, the biggest and best nukes, and he will certainly deliver the biggest and best possible Apocalypse! The Firestarter even informed Gaum's governor that tourism will increase "tenfold" after he's done his thing, perhaps thinking of tourists gawking at the Bikini Atoll. Lots of money to be made, true!, but sixty years later nothing can live there.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS SPLASH: Call him the Cuck of the Walk. A giant inflatable chicken with a golden 'do was placed outside the White House "to criticize the president as a weak and ineffective leader," according to Taran Singh Brar, the director of the documentary film Chicken Don. "He's too afraid to release his tax returns, too afraid to stand up to Vladimir Putin, and now he's playing chicken with North Korea!" Alas, Trump was not able to see his uncanny likeness in person, being in the middle of yet another extended golf vacation. The Caddy Hack did, however, take a quick break between mulligans to berate the Senate for not working! As for nicknames, we tend to favor Chicken Little, since Trump is constantly wailing that the sky is falling.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS SLASH: The Wrath of Con adamantly refuses to rule out the "military option" on North Korea, Venezuela, Liechtenstein, Bouvet, Nauru, Timbuktu, Mitch McConnell, Rosie O'Donnell, Megyn Kelly and Arianna Huffington.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS KKK SASH: While the rest of the nation, including a number of high-ranking Republicans, called for the White Supremacist House to denounce terrorist attacks by neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Gingervitis was having none of that. These terrorists were Trump's homies, his fans, his voters for chrissakes! So according to The White Pride Piper "many sides" were at fault, just as in the past, when slaves resisted whippings and victims of kangaroo courts resisted lynchings. So sad that slaves resisted being flogged! So sad that they opposed having their children sold down the river! Because they objected, they were equally to blame! So sad that "niggers" being hung from trees kicked their feet and could have potentially bruised their attackers! How very unfair to the white supremacists stringing them up! Because they did not go gently, they were equally to blame! And how very sad and unfair that Trump's father was once arrested at a KKK rally for assaulting a police officer! How equally unequally sad and unfair that Woody Guthrie wrote angry songs about "old man Trump" and his discrimination against black tenants! Yes, The Great White Dope and his homies have been terribly discriminated against! Now they will make AmeriKKKa grate again, and many people with darker skin will migrate again. The proper order (white men on top) must be restored, and Trump is their movement's Poster Man-Boy and Golden I-Con! Of course "Heil Hitlers!" were in order after Trump's stirring defense of Nazism, and the alt-right supplied them. Richard Spencer cheered Trump: "Hail Trump! Hail our people! Hail victory!" People in his audience snapped snazzy Nazi salutes. David Duke expressed profuse thanks to his beloved Hair Furor. Later when reporters questioned Trump―could he really be saying it was wrong to stand up to Nazis?―The AmeriKlan Idol informed them in no uncertain terms that Trump has the bigliest and best eyes. Trump sees things more clearly than anyone else. Trump sees all and knows all. His fake news "trumps" all other news, as his name suggests. After Trump repeatedly insisted that "both sides" were equally responsible for the violence at Charlottesville, CNN senior political analyst David Axelrod compared him to an out-of-control Runaway Truck: "There are no brakes, there is no reverse." John McCain and Mitt Romney pointed out the obvious: that it is not evil to oppose evil. Romney tweeted: "No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes." But then Trump probably considers women who resist his gropings to be "equally guilty," if not moreso!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS M*A*S*H*: Wild Bill Hiccup is the leader of the Hole-in-the-Head Gang, the tongue-tangled Gang that Couldn't Talk Straight. Professional criminals know better than to make up weak, nonsensical excuses for things they claim not to have done. But it's Rank Amateur Hour at the White House and our Celebrity Apprentice President is the new King of Unintentional Comedy. Trump can't keep his story straight for consecutive executive tweets. The White House is now on critical care.―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
NEWS CRASH: Is Trump tired of "winning" yet, or did we mishear him? Perhaps the Trumpster meant that we would never hear the end of his whining. Is there any actual winning in sight? North Korea is launching ICBMs at an accelerated rate. The much-touted apartheid barrier has shrunk to a 28-mile "strip wall" and Congress will apparently refuse to fund even that token edifice. The Tin Pot Despot ordered Mexican president Peña Nieto to stop publicly refusing to pay for the wall, but once again failed to "win." After all his tough talk about protecting Syrian children and their mothers, Chicken Whittle meekly handed over their fates to Assad and Putin. Putin then spanked Trump in public by shuttering a dacha for American diplomats, after Trump had provided lavish retreats for Russian diplomats. Captain Shamerica reneged on his solemn campaign vows to pull out of NAFTA, to declare China a currency manipulator, and to institute "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States." Last and completely least, TrumpedUpCare was exposed for the disaster that it so evidently was. When the last cards had been dealt face-up to Cassino Mussolini, the GOP had cashed out on The Great White Emancipator's grand designs to "free" the rich by killing off the poor and middle-income classes. King Trump the Grate then blasted his own party when he bitterly complained that Re-flub-Lycans "could not even negotiate a health care bill after seven years of talking." Now neo-Nazis are chanting "Heil Trump!" while the rest of the nation watches aghast in disbelief. If this is "winning," then clearly I am Trump's monkey uncle!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Ever wonder why Trump seems to be living on his Bedminster golf course these days? Turns out it's not because he loves golf, but because he considers the White House to be a "real dump." The White House was good enough for every president since John Adams, but not for King Trump the Toilet-Plater! At least now we know why Melania Antoinette never moved into the White House. Living in ritzy Trump Tower, she is apparently far above Dolley Madison, Jackie Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, Michelle Obama and all the other first ladies who made the White House the primary home for their husbands and families. When I told my wife what Trump said, she was shocked, then angry, observing that Trump is "trailer trash who won the lottery."
After Trump repeatedly insisted that "both sides" were equally responsible for the violence at Charlottesville, CNN senior political analyst David Axelrod compared him to an out-of-control, runaway truck: "There are no brakes, there is no reverse."

As everyone knows (because he keeps reminding us), Trump only hires the very best people: for example, Mike "Dr. Strangelove" Flynn, Sean "Scary" Spicer, Reince "and Flush" Priebus and, of course, the Mooch. But really folks: is it Trump's fault that the very best people turn into human lemons as soon as they start working under him?
It sounds like Bob Corker has a corkscrew loose. Rather than advising John Kelly “to fire every single person” responsible for leaked information, he ought to advise General Kelly to start handing out medals for patriotism. When a president is constantly saying and doing the wrong things, there should be lots of whistle-blowing. And we can call the courageous whistleblowers “Kelly’s Heroes”!―Michael R. Burch
Personally, I'm still waiting for the winning, but the whining is getting old!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
Donald Trump is absolutely correct when he insists that there has been no "chaos" in the White House. The correct term is pandemonium, as in a chorus of demons.
On his first day as White House Chief of Staff, John F. Kelly, a former Marine four-star general, told aides that he intends to impose a new sense of order and operational discipline that had been lacking heretofore. Toward that end, Kelly's first official act was to hand Trump a dunce cap, sit him in the time-out corner, and make him repeat "I will not tweet!" ten thousand times.
Trump is proof positive that fact really is stranger than fiction. A lot stranger. YUGELY and BIGLY stranger.―Michael R. Burch
Are you tired of "winning" yet? North Korea just launched another ICBM. Trump meekly handed over Syria's fate to Assad and Putin. Mexico refuses to pay for the wall, which could easily be defeated with ladders and spades (not to mention boats, helicopters and planes). And tellingly, after seven years of damning Obamacare as the work of the Devil, it turns out that Trump and the GOP are clueless about coming up with anything remotely as good, much less better. However, despite all his failed promises, Trump did produce one major miracle, however unintentional: He managed to make Obamacare vastly more popular!
Trump fired James Comey for being too hard on Hillary Clinton. Now he wants to fire Jeff Sessions for not being hard enough on her! It's like someone gave Viagra to Pinocchio and it went straight to his nose!―Michael R. Burch aka "The Loyal Opposition"
