Tiny Hands Trump uses the world's smallest pen and desk to sign his latest

Man-Baby Trump will have none of that! The antsy Combover Kid believes in ACTION,
but hopefully his fingers are still too tiny, weak and delicate to key in the
nuclear codes ...
Trump's nannies applaud as the Boychurian Candidate learns to operate a pen with his

TrumpCare or TrumpedUpCare?
Irony of ironies, we may be saved from TrumpCare because four Republican
senators ―Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson and Mike
Lee―don't think it will kill enough Americans, and thus may refuse to vote for
it! So what's next? Not building the wall?
and prayers are with Paul Ryan, whose youthful dream of
robbing poor people of their health coverage was dashed today.
Our thoughts ―@resnikoff"a big, fat, beautiful negotiation" during the first
meeting of his Cabinet at the White House.
It's not just Lyin' Ryan whose most cherished dreams may be dashed. Trump seemed
ecstatic at the thought of killing off less-fortunate Americans, calling TrumpedUpCare
Senate Republicans are evil but not stupid. They are desperately trying to
exempt themselves from their own healthcare bill!
I cannot imagine that Congress
would dare to leave Washington without a beautiful new HealthCare bill fully
approved and ready to go!
The art of the AHCA deal: (1) Bargain in bad faith. (2) Fail. (3) Give up. (4)
Blame someone else, preferably Democrats even though they were excluded from the
negotiations. (5) Go play golf and cheat to "win."
Trump is clearly delusional. He tweeted: " " Can anyone with an ounce of
sense imagine Republicans agreeing on a "beautiful" healthcare plan that covers
everyone, as Trump promised while campaigning for president? He seems to
actually believe that the pie in the sky he's been selling has nutritional
value! ―Michael R. Burch
TrumpCareless is the most hated legislation in thirty years, but Trump and
McConnell can't wait to get it passed, so they're holding senators hostage,
knowing that if they go home their constituents will persuade them
to kill multitudes of less
fortunate Americans. #FreeOurSenators NOT
The orange Incredible Bulk warns that he will be "very angry" if TrumedUpCare is
not passed quickly. He simply cannot wait to rip healthcare away from the most
vulnerable Americans: babies, their mothers, the elderly, veterans of health-
and mind-destroying wars. #SaveOurCitizens
It's no joke!
TrumpCare really will save billions ... by making babies and grannies die sooner rather than later! Are
we tired of "winning" yet?
TrumpCare is clearly a rush to fudgement!

Kremlingate aka Russiagate, Trumpgate and Comeygate
G.O.P. now stands for "Government of Putin" and it is clearly of Putin, by Putin
and for Putin.―Michael R. Burch
"Give 'Em Hell" Harry S. Truman said, "The buck stops here." One the other hand,
"Myself Am Hell" Donald Drumpf said, "The ruble starts here!" (The phrase
"Myself am hell" is the signature and self-diagnostic line of Lucifer in John
Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost.)
"Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of
our assets," Donald Trump Jr. told a real estate conference in 2008,
"We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia." In 2014, when
golf writer James Dodson asked Eric Trump how his father could finance golf
courses when American banks were declining to lend money against such assets, he
answered: "We don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we
need out of Russia." So when Trump Sr. claims to have "no dealings"
with Russia, he is obviously lying. And Trump Jr. made the purpose of his
treasonous Trump Tower meeting with Russian agents crystal-clear when he
informed Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort about the covert operation in an email
with the subject heading: "Russia – Clinton – private and confidential." Folks,
it doesn't take Sherlock Holmes or IBM's Watson to figure this one out!
There will be no single smoking gun that will bring down this White House. It
will be death by firing squad—or perhaps a sequence of firing squads—as the
whole story inexorably pours out of the administration’s smoldering ruins.―Frank
In this sad but predictable tale, the GOP is the Titanic, while the
Trump-Kushner gang is the iceberg that everyone can see but cannot possibly
avoid. The difference is that Republicans will apparently give no thought to
saving American women and children first, and will act merely for
self-preservations, like rats abandoning a sinking vessel.
First, the good news: We have discovered the source of White House leaks! Now,
the bad news: The treasonous leaker is the Big Leaker, President Trump himself, pissing on the truth.
The terse order to fire Comey came straight from Mr. Putin ―"and was carried out by Acting President Jared "Jarhead" Kushner
and Acting First Lady-Daughter Ivanka Trump-Kushner. Nyet
Comrade Trumputin was informed of Comey's termination while he was cheating at
putt-putt golf and stealing milk money from kindergartners. The Donald grinned
almost as widely as when he celebrated robbing millions of less-fortunate Americans of their
healthcare. "Все в день работы!" the Brooklyn Bolshevik exclaimed ("All in a
day's work!"). He then referred all questions to Sean "Scary" Spicer and Kellyanne "Wrongway" Conway. Later, Trumputin was said to be "very disappointed"
when he learned that "termination" meant "fired" rather than "executed." But he
must be excused, because he is still struggling with his non-native language,
English. He is much more fluent in his primary languages: Russian and Bullshit.
James Comey was Trump's homey when he investigated Hillary Clinton's emails. But
when he refused to be Trump's lapdog, it was time for him to be neutered.
Now everyone is breathlessly awaiting word on who Putin will choose to replace FBI
Director James Comey.―Gisele Dussault
Fact really is stranger than fiction. Morgan, Lewis & Bockius ― the
law firm advising Trump on handling his business conflicts ― was
named Russia's Law Firm of the Year in 2016!Looking into money laundering around Trump is like investigating
moisture in the middle of the ocean. — Mark Sumner

Red Sea, and would also require Divine Intervention.―Michael R. Burch

looks up and asks, "What'll it be, President Trump?"

explaining why he couldn't hold a candle to Trump in the "idea" department
President Obama called TrumpedUpCare a "massive transfer of wealth" to the rich.

Messiah, leading the self-appointed Chosen Few to the Promised Land of plenty.

When Trump speaks, he sounds like a WWF wrestler plugging his next big match. —
White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus told ABC's Jonathan Karl that the
Trump administration is "looking at" the First Amendment with the goal of either
amending or abolishing it, in order to protect Trump from "unfair" criticism.
Never mind that Trump has viciously attacked other people, often blatantly lying
in the process. What's good for gander is obviously not good for the cooked goose, in
Trump's kitchen where he dishes out the heat but can't take it. Now the days of
free speech and dissent are apparently numbered, so please send us your
best Trump jokes while you still can!

stupidity) times Asseleration (Trump's tweets).
Trump is so busy vacationing, playing golf, tweeting, posing for photo ops and
campaigning for reelection that he has precious little time to govern. And that
is silver lining for the
United States! YUGE
Senator Bob Corker told TIME magazine: "I do wish somebody would take his iPhone
away from him!" Yes, and his Twitter account too. Only in the United States do
we entrust the nuclear codes to someone we wouldn't let babysit our pets, much
less our teenage daughters.
This week Donald Trump started building his wall ... a wall between millions of
Americans and their health care ... Many congressmen admitted they didn't even
read the bill before voting on it. They're treating healthcare the way I treat
an iTunes agreement! I'm sure it's fine, then suddenly I'm dealing with
pre-existing conditions ... The bill was strongly opposed by the American
Medical Association, the American Hospital Association, and the National
Physicians Alliance. Though it did receive a rare thumbs-up from the Grim
Reaper.―Colin Jost on SNL's Weekend Update
Truant Trump and Lyin' Ryan rushed the American Death Care Act (aka #TrumpedUpCare) through the House without
waiting for the CBO to crunch the numbers. But what the hell―when you're ready,
willing and eager to write off millions of Americans as lost
causes, do the actual numbers really matter? Never mind that those "lost causes"
include our aging parents, our grandparents, and eventually our children.
Nothing matters to Trump except being a "winner." Now he's "won" and millions of
"losers" will have to fend for themselves, at the mercy of heartless insurance
companies who also intend to "win" at their expense.
Republican bigwigs are celebrating the denial of healthcare to millions
of Americans. "Your premiums are going to come down," Trump rejoiced, dancing a
happy jig, "because now we can kill you off if you're not rich!" Paul Ryan was
described as "giddy." Mike Pence was positively "ecstatic."
Many Trump supporters
still don't seem to understand that they are the ones who will suffer under #TrumpedUpCare
aka #Lyin'Ryan'Dyin'Care. Who will be hit the hardest? Older people on limited
incomes. Who voted Trump into the nation's highest office? Ditto. Now
the yoke's on them, as Groucho Marx would say, but unfortunately the same yoke
is on us.
Republican Raul Labrador drew intense jeers at an Idaho town hall when he
defended the GOP’s ObamaCare repeal plan by claiming that "Nobody dies because
they don't have access to healthcare!" Trump's Labrador Retriever had previously
opined that healthcare is not a basic human right. In other words, rich people
are entitled to healthcare but the rest of us only have the "right" to suffer
and die. It's hard to say whether the Labrador Guppy and his owner are evil or
just plain stupid, but in either case the end result will be the same.
Warren Buffet told stockholders of Berkshire Hathaway that Trump would give the
company a $9 billion tax break. So we can't afford decent healthcare for
millions of less-fortunate Americans, but we can afford to help the super-rich,
like Warren Buffet, get even richer! But there's no surprise here, because this
is the real Republican game plan, and has been for decades.
"Trickle down" economics is a golden shower, with the rich pissing their

James Comey said it made him feel "mildly nauseous" to think he influenced the
presidential election. Comey will feel "really nauseous" when Trump starts
Comey said that he was compelled to announce the investigation of Hillary
Clinton's emails, but somehow he was not compelled to announce the investigation
of Trump's Russian ties. Now we voters feel nauseous!
Trump called national monuments established by Barack Obama an "egregious abuse
of power." He then issued an executive order commanding the national monument at
Mount Rushmore to add his image.
The good news is that Bannon has been banished. The bad news is that Reince
Priebus is staying, so "Reince twice and spit!"―Michael R. Burch
With the demotion of Darth Bannon, the double-headed hydra Jervanka now
rules, so be prepared to be "jerved off."―Michael R. Burch
Trump was not being hypocritical about Sexual Assault Awareness
Month. He was very sincere about letting everyone know that he
and his friends Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly have the right to sexually assault women!
President Trump cavalierly said: "I don't think Bill O'Reilly did anything
wrong." Of course not, since Trump
bragged about groping women to Billy Bush League.
Sarah Silverman has called for a military coup to overthrow Trump. But
unfortunately it seems there are no American generals that patriotic, brave or
Donald Trump is on a fact-free diet.
Trump is now using Syrian children to justify his cruise missile attack on
Syria. Those are the same Syrian children he not only banned from entering the
United States, but said must be "taken out" by the American military as
"retribution" for acts of terrorism. Is Trump incredibly confused or are
those crocodile tears he's weeping?
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. told Erin Burnett that Trump is "turning America into a
petrostate," noting that "It's hard to see a good end for our country from those
kinds of policies." Will Trump kill your children or grandchildren by blithely
ignoring the ever-mounting evidence of global warming (such as rising sea
levels, which cannot be fudged)? Unfortunately, this is no joke. Today it's bees
and other pollinators that are endangered. Tomorrow, it may be us and our
Trump was being questioned about collusion with Russia. A reporter asked him
point-blank: "Have you or any members of your inner circle ever knowingly
communicated with Russian intelligence agents?" Trump's face flushed
crimson with rage. It took him nearly a minute to regain enough composure to speak.
Then he screamed: "Read my lips ... "―Michael
R. Burch NYET!
Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-Un start a nuclear war and die at the
same time. They are greeted at the gates of hell by the Devil, who explains that
they can make one final call, but such calls may be VERY expensive. Since they
are rich and can't take it with them, all three agree. Putin calls Russia and
talks for five minutes; the charge is one million dollars. Jong-Un calls North
Korea and talks for ten minutes; the cost is two million dollars. Trump calls
his family and talks bigly for hours, but the cost is only five bucks. A
seething Putin demands to know why Trump got off so cheap. The Devil replies:
"Since he took over, the US has gone to hell, so it's a local call!"
Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking was asked in an interview whether his
knowledge of the universe allowed him to explain Trump's popularity. "I can't,"
Hawking replied. "He's a demagogue who seems to appeal to the lowest common
denominator." Understandably, the Trumpites were baffled by Hawking's use
of moderately long words. But they were inordinately pleased to be considered "common
dominators" following a "demigod."―Michael R. Burch
The swamp drained Trump, according to Republican congressman Justin Amash of
Michigan. Trump is being mocked by his own party.
“@RealDonaldTrump It’s a swamp not a hot tub. We both came here to drain it. #SwampCare

According to the New York Times, it was Acting President Stephen KKK
Bannon who instructed Trump to use his Twitter feed as a "rhetorical prod" to
attack conservatives like Amash and Massie who didn't fall in line. Does the phrase
"divided we fall" ring any bells?
Richard Nixon insisted, "I am not a crook!" But of course he was.

"When you are given immunity, that means that you have probably committed a

When Trump promised that he would "drain the swamp," he forgot to mention than
he would immediately restock it with cold-blooded Russian krokodils.

The GOP had seven years to come up with something better than Obamacare. It was

Kellyanne "Wrongway" Conway claims microwaves can be turned into "cameras." Is
that how her brain got scrambled—by an overactive microwave oven?
Rachel Maddow has Trump's tax return. He must have signed it too close
to his microwave. And in the process his brain vaporized and his hands
shrank to the size of daffodils.
It's important to be fair. And it is beyond obvious that Trump couldn't

Trump "Solution" Jokes
When Obama was president, a 4.8% jobless rate was "totally fiction" and the
"real" rate was around 42%. But now that Trump is president, virtually the same
rate (4.7%) is suddenly solid gold and the gospel truth!
The GOP's Unaffordable No Care Act will be known unofficially as TrumpedUpCare
and Lyin'RyanDyin'Care, since both Trump and Ryan will claim credit for it ...
until it implodes.
TrumpedUpCare's biggest losers, ironically, will be Trump's supporters. Obama was Evil Incarnate for trying to help them. Trump is an Angel
for sentencing them to slow, lingering deaths. Go figure.
#TrumpedUpCare is #WealthCare, not healthcare.
Obama did care about the less fortunate. Trump only cares about the fortunate,
like Himself, and thus his plan is #NoMamaCare.
The Congressional Budget Office confirmed what we already knew: Trump and the
GOP don't care whether we live or die, and #TrumpedUpCare proves it.
Trump supporters evidently believe that the only people losing healthcare will
be "those people." They are about to learn that they are "those people" to
Trump, Ryan and the GOP.
Lyin' Ryan told the truth for a change: he admitted to Rich Lowry that he has
been dreaming of cutting Medicaid since he started drinking out of kegs. Here's
a toast to all the people Lyin' Ryan will kill. Skoal.
According to Paul Ryan, covering more people is just a "beauty contest." And of
course Trump is the King of beauty contests. The more attractive female patients
will be ogled and groped; the rest can die and go to hell for all that Tricky Trump and
Lyin' Ryan care.
Donald was once a popular name in Scotland, but no longer. Donald is going the
way of the German name Adolf, and for the same reason.
Now we know why Trump wanted to become president: so he could claim "immunity"
and pardon himself for multiple cases of sexual assault!
Since Trump and Ryan weren't able to kill millions quickly by taking away their
healthcare, they have opted to kill billions slowly by polluting the earth till
it fries us to crisps.
Trump declared the "start of a new era" in which coal mining trumps clean
energy. That's like preferring ox-drawn plows to tractors and combines, only
with deadlier consequences.
Trump likes to style himself not only as a dealmaker, but as "the closer." But
he's closer to a loser after his primary initiatives have failed miserably.
Trump has a "Big Agenda." It's absolutely YUGE. Amerika's Reverse
Robin Hood will rob the poor and give liberally to the super-rich. That,
apparently, makes him a conservative!
TrumpedUpCare is the reverse of real healthcare: it offers smaller premiums to

Senator Charles Schumer: "Ultimately, the TrumpCare bill failed because of two
traits that have plagued the Trump presidency since he took office: incompetence
and broken promises. In my life, I have never seen an administration as
incompetent as the one occupying the White House today. They can't write policy
that actually makes sense, they can't implement the policies they do manage to
write, they can't get their stories straight, and today we've learned that they
can't close a deal, and they can't count votes. So much for the Art of the Deal.
I also have never seen a President break as many promises to working people as
this President has done in just over two months. President Trump said we're
going to have health insurance for everyone that's going to cost less. TrumpCare
would have done exactly the opposite. This bill would have been a boon for the
wealthy, providing a huge tax cut for Americans making over $250,000, while
causing premiums to rise by more than $12,000 for lower income seniors. Today
should be the last day the cloud of TrumpCare hangs over the American people.

This is no joke, because the most expensive single building ever

Mark of the Beast? 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:

(no annoying ads or requests for money; this is a public service). Yes, it
does sound like the plot of a new Christ movie, but in this case fact really
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. OMEN 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?

The Second Coming of Hitler?
Prominent conservatives like David Koch have compared Trump's plans to ban,

said: "We'll have them all register? That's reminiscent of Nazi Germany. I mean,
Is Hair Hitler the second coming of Herr Hitler?
Hitler claimed that he alone could make German great
again; Trump claims that he alone can make America great again.
Hitler was a media pioneer, using radio broadcasts to
delude the gullible masses; Trump uses Twitter, the Internet and TV.
Hitler used an airplane to fly around Germany, drumming
up support for his insanity; Trump has a private jet.
Hitler's "base" was German white supremacists; Trump's
"base" is American white supremacists.
Hitler scapegoated, banned and deported Jews, just as Trump plans to scapegoat,
ban and deport Muslims and Hispanics.
Hitler's initial "solution" for the Jewish immigrants was giant
internment/concentration camps; Trump's initial "solution" for Hispanic
immigrants would also require giant interment/concentration camps.
Hitler's initial "solution" to the "Jewish problem" didn't work,
nor will Trump's. Will Trump's "final
solution" be the same as Hitler's? Trump has already advocated killing
("taking out") Muslim women and
Hitler was extremely militaristic; Trump has called
himself the most militaristic person on the planet.
Hitler had a titanic ego and thought he was invincible;
ditto for Trump.
Hitler had his brownshirts beat up protestors; Trump
has protestors thrown out and physically manhandled. Like Hitler, Trump has no
use for free speech or diversity, demanding blind obedience and conformity.
Hitler had the world's oddest moustache; Trump has the
world's weirdest combover.

Kellyanne "Wrongway" Conway objects to the Obamacare replacement/disgracement

while Trump obviously doesn't. So let's call it what it is: #TrumpedUpCare and #NoMamaCare.

C'm'on lefties! Admit that Donald Trump has been on China. He has been
on Chinese kids who slave away in sweatboxes, making his menswear. He has also
been especially tough on
Hispanic kids. He will be incredibly tough
on the Syrian kids he says we must "take out"
( even tougher ) in order to win
the war on terror. No wonder he's the idol of white supremacists
everywhere! What a tough guy, what a Putin-like strongman, what a steely-eye
hero, making damn sure that Syrian toddlers don't overthrow our vaunted armed forces
in one of the great military coups of all time! Get with the
murder! program pogrom, you
bleeding-heart lefties! Surely you know that Jesus Christ would have gone Rambo,
grabbed his assault weapon and made damn sure that no Syrian babe or widowed
mother ever received shelter on these Christian shores! Are you
like President Obama to suggest that Americans should
have the courage to show compassion to unfortunate people who are not

Things that go bump in the night

Is cowardice Trump's kryptonite?
—Michael R. Burch
Trump's latest idea to "make American great again" is a real doozy that puts him
in the same category as Herr Hitler. Our new Hair Hitler recently insisted three times that
the world's most powerful nation must wage war on women and children, "taking
them out" like pawns in a game of incredibly bloody chess. Asked during a
Fox News interview about civilian casualties in the war on terror,
Trump replied: "We're fighting a very politically correct war [by trying to
avoid harming civilians] ... And the other thing is with the terrorists,
When you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families . They care about their lives, don't kid
yourself. But they say they don't care about their lives. you have to take
out their families
William Finnegan pointed out in an article for You have to take out their families The New Yorker, "Even
Slobodan Milosevic knew better than to talk like that in public." Also what
Trump said makes no sense, because if the terrorists really do care about their
lives, you can use their lives as "leverage" and don't have to take out their
families. Not to mention that murdering noncombatant women and children is evil
and a violation of international law and basic human decency.) According to
our hysterical Herr Trump, it is "politically correct" (i.e., very bad) to try to
avoid killing women and children, and the best way to "win" the war on terror is
to become serial killers of women and children ourselves! Herr
Trump, welcome to the club that includes Hitler, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot,
Idi Amin, Ivan the Terrible, Attila the Hun and Genghis Khan! How proud
Americans will be when as Commander-in-Chief you order our highly-skilled
professional soldiers to "take out" women and children! What a tough guy, what a
hero, what a leader of men! Sieg Heil, Herr Trump!
A pale neo-Nazi, Herr Trump,
screamed "Take them all out!" at the stump:
"Mothers and kiddies!
Grandpappies, old biddies!
Just blow up the whole damn dump!"

Donald John Trump is a man of many talents, a real Renaissance man! For
instance, The Donald has replaced
Dear Abby as the nation's foremost provider of relationship advice to the
lovelorn! But perhaps
we should call him "Dire Abby" because the advice he tweets is seldom endearing
or helpful. Here are a few quick examples in which Trump appears to be a cross
between Dear Abby, Don Rickles and the National Enquirer ...
@ariannahuff is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her
former husband left her for a man―he made a good decision.
Everyone knows I am right that Robert Pattinson should dump Kristen Stewart. In
a couple of years, he will thank me. Be smart, Robert!
Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a
dog & will do it again―just watch. He can do much better!
@katyperry is no bargain, but I don't like John Mayer—he dates and tells—be
careful Katy (just watch!).
Why would anyone take relationship advice from Dire Abby, and why would anyone
elect such a crackpot president? He sounds like a teenage gossip trying to beak
up someone else's relationship out of spite or envy.
Foxhole Humor: Observations about Donald J. Trump
Trump wants to ban non-Christian refugees from Middle Eastern hot spots. Thus,
he would ban the Holy Family, since they were not Christians when Jesus was born
in a hot spot: the Palestinian West Bank.
Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman said that Trump is mentally ill. But that seems like
an insult to the insane, most of whom are not trying to destroy the world!
Thinking you're Napoleon makes you mentally ill. Claiming to be the Savior of
the World? That makes you the ANTICHRIST!
A five-year-old boy was handcuffed, separated from his mother and held in
custody for five hours as "a threat to America" at Washington DC’s Dulles
Airport. He was later identified as US citizen.
Trump should self-deport himself, since he said the US "should not admit those who
engage in acts of bigotry or hatred...or those who would oppress Americans of
any race, gender, or sexual orientation."
When Andy Cohen asked Rachel Maddow what her first question would be if she
booked him for her show, Maddow deadpanned: “Are you going to send me or anybody
that I know to a camp?”
There is a silver lining within the dark cloud of a Trump presidency―sales of

Trump evidently lied through the teeth to get elected; suddenly now everything
is "negotiable." But how does one negotiate with a psychopathic liar?
Trump is the boy who "Wolf!"
Donald Trump just announced the first immigrants to be deported: Lady Liberty

John Zogby called Trump's acceptance speech "revolutionary." Perhaps, but based
on the number of protesters, it seems more likely to START a revolution.

Yes, Trump really is keeping his promises ... the worst ones!
The universe's dark forces are in perfect alignment! Mr. Putin and Acting
President Bannon want exactly the same thing: the destruction of American
democracy and its worldwide influence.
“I’m a Leninist,” Bannon told The Daily Beast in 2013. “Lenin wanted to
destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing
down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.”
Of course Mr. Putin fully supports President Bannon's anti-American initiatives
and has ordered his puppet, Comrade Trumputin, to aid and abet Benedict Bannon's acts of
treason, espionage and sabotage.
Why does Trump reject American intelligence? His handler, Mr. Putin, is a KGB
spook who despises and fears American intelligence. Comrade Trumputin is just
Why is Trump spending so much time on the golf course? It's part of his job.
He's practicing to be Mr. Putin's caddy and water boy.
Trump is a YUGE fan of "state's rights," by which he means that states will have
"rights" when they meekly obey his dictatorial edicts.
All those political jokes were bound to backfire. Now the worst one of all has
been elected president and the yoke's on us!
Russia had Peter the Great. Germany had Frederick the Great. But Americans have
been shortchanged, because our first dictator is Donald the Ingrate!
Trump's "tax plan" is simple: cut taxes for himself, his cronies and his
companies, and let everyone else foot the bill. The eel-fingered Groper-in-Chief
is now groping our wallets.
Scientists recently discovered a strange new insect: the Orange-Tufted Twitter
Flitterbug. It's a nasty little parasitical midge, but it dreams that it's a
Trump called Erdogan to congratulate him for becoming an absolute dictator,
something Trump aspires to become himself.
Comrade Trumputin did not inform Congress of his Syrian missile strike, but he
did inform Russia. It seems perfectly clear that Mr. Putin is running the show, and that
Trump is Putin's Puppet.
Why do Trump & Co. attack journalists? For the same reason dumbass jocks beat up
nerds: it's easier to smack someone smarter than to win a debate with false
facts and bad logic.
As Nancy Gibbs, editor of TIME, pointed out: "The enemy in any
democracy is not dissent ... The enemy is dishonesty, ignorance, indifference,
intolerance." In other words, the enemy is Trump.
If PRIMA DONALD is correct that fake news is the enemy of
the people, then he is PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE, since no one
has ever spewed more fake news than PRESIDENT PANTS-ON-FIRE.
Pope Francis describes Trump: "I belong to this association and that one, but my
life is not Christian: I don't pay my workers a just wage, I exploit people, I
am dirty in my business, I launder money … A double life."
Is Trump leading the ultimate double life? Is the Antichrist waving his Bible
around, pretending to be a "Christian" while rushing the world toward
Thomas Jefferson said that he would choose "newspapers without a government"
over "a government without newspapers." Trump prefers Big Brother to control
everything, including the dissemination of fake news.

"The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut! The
media has zero integrity, zero intelligence, and no hard work!" This from Steve Bannon, the ahem media mogul.
Well, at least Steve "Loose Cannon" Bannon has admitted that he has zero
integrity, zero intelligence, and doesn't work hard, preferring to publish
"alternate facts" like his boss, the Trumpster.
Jake Tapper had the perfect response to Bannon's demand that the press "keep its
mouth shut." He laughed and said, "No."

Terrorists have developed a terrible new weapon to assassinate Trump: the
dreaded surface-to-hair missile. The Pentagon is rapidly retooling Hair Force
One to protect his blonde roots.
Speaking of blonde s, Kellyanne "Wrongway" Conway must
have sniffed the peroxide before she applied it, when she created the "Bowling
Green Massacre."The real winner of the election? Melania. She was promoted from third wife to
First Lady! The downside is that she still has to sleep with Hair Hitler.
There was no "Bowling Green Massacre." There was no refugee "ban" in response to
the non-existent massacre. First there was Faux News and now we have a Faux
Hitler had Eva Braun. Napoleon had Josephine. Trump must be one hard-up fascist
if the best he can afford is Kellyanne Conway! Like Julius Caesar, he has his
Queen of Denial, but she is no Cleopatra.
Trump instructed his female staffers to #DressLikeWomen. Does Mr. Piggy Wiggy
want them to dress like his wife Melania: topless, or with breast implants
overflowing their bras? In g-strings? How?
Lyin' Paul Ryan now wants to "repair" Obamacare! But when Obama was president,
Lyin' Ryan insisted that repair was impossible. How many people suffered and
died because of his lies? "sensitive ego" will be "very
detrimental to his mental health" because "he wants to be liked, he wants to be
loved, he wants people to cheer for him."
Howard Stern expressed concern that Trump's
I'm with Stern. Poor little rich kid! After Trump insults and bullies other
people incessantly, he still wants to be liked, loved and cheered. Yes, I feel
very sorry for the pale, cold-blooded Vampire Lord!
Howard Stern has an interesting theory about Trump: "He's pissed he won. He
still wants Hillary Clinton to win. He's so f-king pissed, he’s hoping that he
can find some voter fraud and hand it over to Hillary!"

donations are even more miniscule than his teeny-tiny hands.

better" alternatives: TrumpedUpCare, Lyin'RyanDyin'Care or NoCareYaEffin'Losers!
According to Newt "the Tadpole" Gingrich, his boss was just being
"cute" when he promised to "drain the swamp." Now Trump is stocking the swamp
with his crocodilian donors and political piranha.
The fiercely conservative Neil Gorsuch wrote in his Georgetown Prep School
yearbook that he founded and led the "Fascism Forever Club."
One of Trump's first acts as president, surrounded by white men, was to
dick-tate that women around the world must give up their right to choose, if
their nations accept American aid. OINK-OINK!
Trump's first official acts included nixing the Climate Action Plan and removing
references to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues from the
WhiteHouse.gov website. Yay, team, go!
Trump promised to "ease the burden of Obamacare," presumably by not caring and
letting people suffer and die while he crows about how "handsome" and "popular"

In his Twitter blast at John Lewis, Trump assumes he represents a slum since

According to Trump, if you're black, you must live in a crime-ridden hell, and
you must be looking for a lily-white Savior, i. e. The Donald.

it again!―Michael R. Burch
ProfessorNina Khrushcheva was asked if Donald Trump is playing into Mr. Putin's
hands. The responses from the intelligence expert were probative: "He's been
playing into Putin's hands for over a year now," replied Professor Khrushcheva.
"So it is not more than he has done already." The host said that many people
have the picture of Putin sitting back and just saying 'Oh yes.' "And you know
what," Khrushcheva continued. "This is such a correct picture ... Because I was
just in Moscow and the Russians are saying, 'Look at those fools. Look at their
democracy. Absolutely, how can America lecture us on any development
institutions, human rights, democracy rhetoric when they just elected Donald
Trump? He is such a fool. He is such a bully. That is what America deserves. And
we are going to take advantage of it.' And that's how Russians feel about it.
And now it's taking shape with letters from Vladimir Putin to Donald Trump with
their exchange of potential nuclear armament and what not. So I think this is
going to be a very interesting world to unfold in the next four years."

Trump blasted Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton for cozying up to Goldman Sachs
financiers who "owned" them; now Trump is owned by the three Goldman Sachs
executives on his cabinet.
Trump lied about being an "outsider." Now it's "business as usual"

positions. The yoke's on you, as the Three Stooges would say.
Not only has Trump failed to "drained the swamp," he is now stocking it with his

Carl Bernstein reported that Republicans are concerned about Trump's "emotional
stability" and "maturity." How silly! That's like being concerned about a

Bernstein concluded that we are in "uncharted territory." Yes, like a paralyzed

fangs, if they're the last things we see!
Trump wants to replace Obamacare with Trumpcare. President Obama really did

election; later there will be a group hug and photo-op with a bare-chested Mr.

Apparently, Putin wants America to hate again, and no one can incite hatred like

Is Trump the Fire Monkey?
George Orwell's novel is climbing in the
bestseller rankings. Orwell got everything right except the year: 2016 (the
Chinese year of the Yang, or Red Fire Monkey). 1984
Yang is, of course, the active male principle, associated with fire and heat.
Trump was elected by the "red" states. And he seems remarkably unevolved, in
terms of equality, compassion and a sense of justice ...
Hey, is there something to Chinese astrology? As millions of women march against
Trump, we see Ying opposing Yang, with Trump acting like an orangutan with its
enormous red ass exposed.
An article about 2016 being the year of the Fire Monkey predicts: "Monkey
business! Hold on to your hats, folks, the circus is about to begin! Monkey sees
and Monkey does what is best for Monkey!"
The rare Year of the Fire Monkey is associated with chaos, and Trump is the King
of Chaos. The last year of the Fire Monkey was 1956, the year of the Cuban
Missile Crisis and Suez Canal Crisis.
The Suez Canal Crisis was a
pivotal event that marked the demise of British imperial power. Will Trump's
monkeyshines do the same for American power?
A Chinese astrology chart says Trump's "Elements are extremely out of balance
... too much Fire and Earth, with almost no Water or Metal." Sounds like he'll
set the world aflame with no way to put it out!
According to Chinese astrology, Trump was born "in the Male Wooden Horse month
of the Male Fire Dog year at Female Earth Snake hour." A Trojan horse setting
fire to the world with hateful venom, perhaps?
Trump was born on a blood moon, as in the biblical moon "turning to blood"
before "the great and terrible Day of the LORD." Armageddon awaits, heralded by
the Trump of Doom!
Thierry Chow warns of shocking events because "when fire is atop monkeys they
will be swinging around, they will be difficult to predict. A lot of things will
be unexpected." Shock the Monkey!
"There are going to be a lot of ups and downs. The monkey is a creature who is
tricky and cunning," Cherry Ma said, predicting an economic rollercoaster in the
Year of the Fire Monkey.
But 2017 will be the year of the Fire Chicken; will Americans fire the Fire
Chicken, by impeaching him? One can only hope!
Trump's name in Chinese translates as Te Lang Pu (Pooh!), which means "unusual,
loud and common." Are the gods trying to tell us something, one wonders?
Rex Tillerson's name in Chinese translates as Di (Die!) Le Sen, which means
"stem (kill), coerce, dark." It seems to suit him, as far as I can tell.
Kellyanne Conway's name in Chinese translates as Kang Wei, which means "healthy
leather hide." Once again, right on the mark!
Ryan Zinke's name in Chinese translates as Jin Ke, which means "ferry crossing
saliva digest." That makes me think of crossing over to Hades on Charon's ferry,
on a river of spittle!

Ronald McDonald Trump-Bozo has agreed to pay $25 million to settle charges of fraud against his so-called Trump "University." Even the name
was a sham and a scam ―not to mention . Thus Trump has, for all intents and
purposes, admitted that he bilked thousands of students out of their hard-earned money. Many of them charged their credit cards and had to pay extremely high interest rates on
top of the fraudulent "tuition" charges. But that is how Trump-Bozo operates, as he unloads his Kooky Klown Kar at the three-ring circus show formerly known
as the American presidency. We will undoubtedly see more shams and scams under a Trump administration. Taxpayers had better plan on shelling out to have padded walls installed at the

them: "I'm brave him; if they were voting

According to Trump, the system is "rigged" if polls are kept open an extra hour
or two, to allow American citizens with darker skin to vote.
It turns out that Trump really is a Republican, after all. His attempt to stop
Latino citizens from voting proves that he is "red" to the core, where his
missing heart would otherwise be.
Did Melania vote for her husband? There is a picture floating around of Donald
Trump eying her ballot suspiciously, with raised eyebrows. But who could blame

In Florida just before election day, Trump called the United States a
"laughingstock." But to be fair, he also called his campaign "the single
greatest waste of time" in human history.
But why did Trump waste so much time trying to take over a laughingstock? Can we
trust him when he tells us how "smart" he is, and how he always "wins"?
Donald Trump said, "Now it's up to the American people to deliver justice at the
ballot box." And they will, by telling him: "You're fired!"

Chickenheart, welshing on your taxes and bills is not "brave."
How screwed up is the GOP? The party could run a Hitler-Mussolini ticket and
still win the red states. Trump could call for a return to slavery and watch his
polls go up.
The children of the corn―Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr.―have spoken. Everyone
should vote for The Donald and pay absolutely no attention to what he says and
does, the way they do.
Whether some of Trump's supporters are deplorable is debatable. Whether Trump
himself is deplorable is not. It is as certain as the sun rising in the east and
setting in the west.

TIME magazine put
Stephen K. Bannon on its cover with the caption The Great Manipulator.
But that gives Bannon far too much credit, because the "man" he keeps man-ipulating
is really a Man-Baby, as Jon Stewart so accurately pointed out.
Those teeny-tiny fingers grasping at straws are a dead giveaway! Therefore TIME should consider these much more accurate captions:
The Great Baby-Man-ipulator, The Great Totipulator,
Stephen KKK Bannon, Loose Cannon Bannon,
The Amerikan Goebbels, Darkness
Incarnate, AmeriKlan Idol, Darth Vader,
Sauron, The Lord of Darkness, The Warmonger.
Bannon has likened himself to the force of darkness from Star Wars: "Darkness is
good," he told the Reporter. "Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That's
According to Bannon's longtime writing partner, Julia Jones: "Steve is a strong
militarist, he's in love with war—it's almost poetry to him.”
Jones was speaking to The Daily Beast in an interview last year, well
before Trump won the election and Bannon landed his new job. "He's studied it
down through the ages, from Greece, through Rome ... every battle, every war
… Never back down, never apologize, never show weakness … He lives in a world
where it's always high noon at the O.K. Corral." In one of the scariest Bannon
quotes that I have seen, he stated confidently that there was "no doubt" the
United States would go to war with China over tiny islands in the South China
Sea! In a March 2016 interview Bannon said: "We're going to war in the South
China Sea in five to ten years. There's no doubt about that. They're taking
their sandbars and making basically stationary aircraft carriers and putting
missiles on those. They come here to the United States in front of our face– and
you understand how important face is–and say it's an ancient
territorial sea." The idea that we would fight a war over tiny islands in order
to save "face" sounds crazy, but such "face saving" was the reason Nixon and
Kissinger refused to pull American troops out of Vietnam until the bitter end.
How many people on both sides died to "save face" in the Vietnam War, one
wonders? How many will die in the next "face saving" war?
Tom " the Amerikan Mengele" Price has been accused of trading
health care stocks on the political version of insider information. Should Tom " the
Price is Right" be Trump's health czar, in charge of national health
care policy? Should Tom Sellout be confirmed? Is the
One Man Death Panel trying to save us, or just to profit from our
misfortunes? Apparently, there are no decent Republican senators or congressmen
willing to stand up to Trump and his dreadful nominees, so Tom Thumb
will probably be confirmed and continue to thumb his nose at us, and at
regulators, while replacing Obamacare with NoMamaCare. Trusting Trump and his
goons with your family's health care is like a lamb trusting cold-blooded,
venom-spitting cobras to act in its best interests. Personally, I'd take my
chances with the cobras. At least they stop killing when their bellies are full.
Mike Huckabee recently said: "Trump may be a car wreck, but at least his car is
pointed in right direction." Now let me get this straight ... as long as someone
is driving in the right direction, it doesn't matter if he hits and injures or
kills multitudes of Hispanic and Muslim children?"
Trump just drove the final nail into his "Final Case for America." He asked us
to think, by asking questions. That was the final nail. Do we prefer to deport
Hispanic children, or to ban Muslim children? Do we want a female president, or
a president who gropes females? Do we want a president who will stand up to Mr.
Putin, or a president who is Putin's puppet? Do we want a president who listens
to our generals, or a president who thinks he's smarter than all our generals
Topless protesters were arrested at a Trump rally. The Donald bailed them out,
so that he could grope them later. Melania, Ivanka and Kellyanne "Wrongway"
Conway are busy making up excuses for Trump: He was framed! It was a liberal
plot! It was just locker room groping―a boyish prank―not real sexual assault!
For Trump to really assault the women, they would need to be much prettier, with
much bigger boobs! Trump would never bother groping women who are not perfect
tens with humongous breasts!
While it's a very bad joke, I would like to give a special Dishonorable Mention
to Donald Trump for
Alicia Machado after she won the Miss Universe contest in 1996. She was a
teenager at the time and he humiliated her in public for gaining weight! Trump
called her Miss Piggy, Miss Eating Machine and Miss Housecleaning (presumably
because she is Latina and that is what Latinas are good for, according to The
Donald). Then, when Trump called Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman" during the
third debate―when all she did was quote what Trump has actually said in
public―he inspired the #NastyWoman hashtag and election campaign. Trump is his
own worst enemy with women, but he's too much of a boor (male piggy oinker) to
realize it. He always remains tone deaf to how racist, sexist and intolerant he

Ultra-right-wing organizations are obviously trying to tip the election to
Trump: the KKK, the KGB, the FBI.―Michael R. Burch
Putin is a former KGB agent. Why is he trying to deliver the presidency to
Trump? Why is the KKK endorsing Trump? And why did the FBI announce a new
investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails just a few days before the election?
Well, Trump obviously needs a
of help to defeat a girl! But if we can be serious for just one moment LOT ―then
back to the jokes, I promise!―it does seem that James Comey took it upon himself
to decide this election, in a shocking breech of protocol. Perhaps these
right-wingers just don't believe in democracy, and will do anything they can to
rig the system in their favor. So Trump may have been correct, after all, except
that it's not liberals doing the rigging, but his fellow alpha male partners in
"Grab her by the pussy?" Sounds like what Hillary did to Trump at the first

BTW, it's amusing that Rudy Giuliani is now Trump's surrogate, defending him
from accusations of sexual assault and other improprieties by scores of women,
when in a 2000 "Mayor's Inner Circle" video, Giuliani in drag had his "breasts"
schmoozed by The Donald, after which Giuliani slapped his face and called him a
"dirty boy." Obviously, Giuliani was well aware of Trump's reputation for
grabbing and groping women without bothering to ask for their permission!
Trump's outrageous behavior was a running joke among alpha males in his circle.
In 1993, fellow bad boy Howard Stern asked Trump directly: "So you treat women
with respect?" Trump answered honestly: "No, I can’t say that either." And
hundreds of chauvinistic public statements and tweets by Trump confirm that he
doesn't treat women with respect, or minorities, or POWs, or Gold Star families,
or anyone that he considers "weak" or "overweight" or "unattractive."
Would Donald Trump create an
American Holocaust by deporting 11 million people, including multitudes of
completely innocent children and their mothers? Is Trump the second coming of
Adolph Hitler? Yes, nicknames like Hair Hitler and Hair
Furor are amusing, but are they also accurate, and perhaps prophetic?

(8) Trump is carrying large losses that he doesn't want the public to see

(6) Trump has paid virtually no federal income tax in past years; thus he
refuses to release even fully audited tax returns
(5) Trump has been donating large sums of money to the Clintons, Planned
Parenthood, and other conservative no-nos
(4) Trump has used offshore accounts to avoid paying federal income taxes
(3) Trump owes huge sums of money to banks and investors, and is not his own man as he claims

Huffington Post. I touched some of them up, here and there, but the credit

Wine is incredibly sexy.
[Do you spend a lot of time French kissing and licking it?]
Bragging about sexual assault is
"what happens when alpha personalities are in the same presence." [Perhaps they had too much sexy wine?]
Why did Donald Trump run for president? According to Eric: "He sees the
tree on the White House lawn has been renamed 'Holiday tree' instead of
'Christmas tree!' I could go on and on for hours!"
[Yes, we're sure than you could go on for hours and hours, but this is
conspiracy theory that is simply not true. No one has renamed the tree. The
Trumps should learn to fact check, after they learn the advantages of reading
actual news from publications that verify what they print, rather than neo-Nazi
websites and Twitter feeds.] Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of starting the birther controversy, but
Eric Trump praised his dad for "starting the conversation" about where Barack
Obama was born.
[Well, perhaps young Eric the Red has finally gotten something right!]
He's gone from just about nothing into a man!
[Ah, but a casino application shows that Donald Trump owed his father
and his father's businesses around $14 million. And his father jointly secured
$70 million for one of The Donald's first big building projects, a Hyatt hotel.
Since when is $84 million "just about nothing"? And this doesn't include the
money that Donald Trump inherited from his grandmother, who founded the original
Trump company, or his father, who left an estate estimated at $250-$300 million.
Hell, when Donald Trump had a newspaper route as a boy, if it rained he was
given a limo and a driver! He owned apartments and was collecting rents while
attending school. No, he was far from a self-made man.]
He's epitomized what America's all about!
[Oh really? Is America all about racism, chauvinism, intolerance,
stiffing contractors, barging into dressing rooms to ogle teenage girls, groping
women's genitals, lying like a dog, and bragging about the size of one's
genitals in public while children are watching an important debate?]
I really like "Humble Trump."
[But of course Donald Trump is the antithesis of "humble." When he proposed the
Secret Service code name "Humble," he was being humorous and poking fun at
himself. Eric Trump must be dumber than a box of rocks or in deep denial if he
thinks his father has ever really been humble.]

town of 4,000 on Highway 2 in Custer County. He could get a nice 3BR there for
$150K. There’s a municipal airport, a hospital. The restaurants are good if you
like beef. You can play golf from May through September and after that you can
use a fluorescent orange ball and play in the snow. He’d be far away from
The New York Times. He could make Broken Bow great, put marble floors and
walls in the public school, put up a marble statue of George Armstrong Custer.
He could attend a good evangelical church every Sunday and go to Bible reading
Wednesday night, where maybe he can learn more about those two Corinthians. He’d
need to be careful about touching women suddenly without permission, though,
because many of them are armed. If he grabbed one, she might cut him to ribbons.

and sexual exploits to unsuspecting reporters (who nonetheless quickly caught on
to Trump's absurd game). In 1990, Trump confirmed using one of the aliases,
testifying in a court case that "I believe on occasion I used that name." And
the name "John Baron" or "John Barron" makes sense, as Trump's middle name is
"John" and he used the code name "The Baron" when leaving messages for his

his third wife Melania had a son, they named him Barron.

Trump Unveils New Campaign Strategy
Donald Trump has unveiled a new "campaign strategy," such as it is:
(1) His campaign is broke with no money to run lie-filled negative ads smearing
Hillary Clinton, and Trump is not willing to invest his own money, so he will
beg funds from the RNC and big-money donors, making him in his own words "bought
and paid for" and a "slave" of the people with money.

RNC if he doesn't win in November," a source said. "They're laying that
Donald Trump's Tax Returns
Donald Trump continues to refuse to disclose his tax returns, claiming that an
IRS audit "prevents" him from doing so. But that makes no sense, because
companies routinely divulge unaudited financial information, then update the
information when the audits are complete. And Trump could obviously release tax
returns for periods that are not being audited. Why would Trump refuse to
release any of his tax returns? Rather obvious reasons might be that (1) his
income on his tax returns is much lower than what he has claimed publicly,
proving him a liar; (2) the notoriously stingy Trump many not have donated much
or any money to the vets and 9-11 responders that he claims to love so much; (3)
he may have donated large sums of money to the Clintons and other Democrats; (4)
he may have donated money to Planned Parenthood and other organizations out of
favor with Republicans; and (5) there may be information linking him to the
Panama Papers and/or other tax dodges.
Excerpts from "Donald Trump Hates Women" by Franklin Foer
[Donald Trump] was the archetypal brat. His father, himself a successful real
estate developer, endlessly expressed a belief in his son’s greatness. "You are
a king," his father would tell Donald, according to his biographer Michael D’Antonio. His son took that to mean he could set his own rules. In elementary
school, he gave one teacher he didn’t like a black eye; others were pelted with
erasers. At birthday parties, he would fling cake. [At the New York Military
Academy] Trump would tear off the sheets of boys who didn’t make their beds
properly; he would laugh while his classmates spoke, putting them in their
But Trump’s primary method for asserting dominance was sex. The school’s
yearbook—the perfectly named Shrapnel—anointed him the official "ladies
man" of the class. He began his lifelong practice of advertising his bedroom
exploits as a means of demonstrating his authority over the rest of the locker
room. Decades later, he’s still trumpeting his sexual exploits. When Tucker
Carlson once mocked him on air, Trump called the pundit and left a voicemail: "It’s true you have better hair than I do. But I get more pussy than you do."
Trump relishes judging women on the basis of their looks, which he seems to
believe amounts to the sum of their character. Such boasting is an essential
part of his patter. In 2001, he phoned into The Howard Stern Show to
discuss his feats of cuckoldry. The occasion for the call was the guest
appearance of a gossip columnist from the Daily News named A.J. Benza,
who was shilling for his book, Fame, Ain’t It a Bitch. The tome
included the admission that Benza’s girlfriend had left him for Trump. Most men
who would go on to become major-party nominees would have run in the other
direction from such a spectacle; Trump couldn’t resist. "I’ve been successful
with your girlfriend, I’ll tell you that," Trump told Stern’s audience. "While
you were getting onto the plane to go to California thinking that she was your
girlfriend, she was some place that you wouldn’t have been very happy with." It
was characteristic bit of braggadocio. As he wrote in The Art of the Comeback: "If I told the real stories of my experiences with women, often seemingly very
happily married and important women, this book would be a guaranteed
best-seller." It’s an entirely Darwinian view, where the alpha male has his pick
of females, both as a perk and a means of flexing his power over lesser men.
It’s the mindset that made his assertion of his penis size in a national debate
almost an imperative—if he let the attack on his manhood slide, his entire
edifice might crumble.
The Ten Most Frightening Things about Donald Trump
(1) Donald Trump wants Saudi Arabia to have nuclear weapons. Has he ever heard
of a coup? Has he forgotten that Osama bin Laden and most of the 9-11
conspirators were Saudis? Trump has even cited a classified 9-11
Commission report that, according to him, links Saudi Arabia to the 9-11
attacks. Is he insane?
(2) Donald Trump has called women "pigs," "dogs," "disgusting animals" and
"bimbos." Now he wants to punish women for having abortions, but not men
involved in making the decision. Is he
(3) Donald Trump wants to deport and ban millions of Hispanics and Muslims, in
effect creating an American holocaust with enormous detention/concentration
camps. Is he a fascist?
(4) Donald Trump refuses to condemn the KKK and sounds like a Grand Wizard
himself. He talks about "the blacks" like a plantation owner and calls
undocumented Hispanics "rapists." Is he a racist?
(5) Donald Trump seems eager to torture people and to force American soldiers to
track down and "take out" women and children. Is he a sadist and unfit to be
(6) Donald Trump says he wants to be "unpredictable" and won't rule out
attacking China over trade disagreements, or using nukes in Europe. Is he a warmonger?
(7) Donald Trump says he will change libel laws to no longer protect the media.
He bullies and evicts protesters. Does he believe in freedom of speech, freedom
of dissent, freedom of the press?
(8) Donald Trump doesn't believe in climate change, vaccinations, or the
opinions of experts on many other subjects. Is he a nut? How many people will he kill through
(9) Donald Trump changed his opinion on abortion seven times in two days (see
"More Waffles, Please!" below). Is he a waffling know-nothing?
(10) Donald Trump listens only to himself: "I'm speaking with myself, number
one, because I have a very good brain and I've said a lot of things." Is he
"smart," or a blathering bozo?

The Best Republican Campaign Slogans
The newest and most accurate Republican campaign slogan seems to be "Dump Trump:
Lose with Cruz!"
Then there's this golden oldie, a favorite of white supremacists everywhere:
"Make America hate again!"
This one's a favorite of the holly rollers: "We are taking our country back ...
to the Dark Ages!"
This slogan has been endorsed by the NRA: "Please just let us cling to our God
and our Guns, and don't bother use with facts!"
The Koch brothers provided this one: "The best government a Super PAC can buy."
The Ten Most Frightening Things about the Republican Party
(1) The GOP's two frontrunners for president are a know-nothing buffoon, Donald
Trump, and a human cobra, Ted Cruz.
(2) All the GOP presidential candidates want to play God and force teenage girls
to bear children they don't want, are not prepared to raise, and can't afford.
(3) All the Republican presidential candidates either deny the evidence of
global warming or resist initiatives to address it.
(4) All the Republican presidential candidates favor more tax breaks for the
richest Americans, meaning that the other 99% will have to shoulder more of the
tax burden as they grow poorer and poorer.
(5) The GOP as a party denies the need for marriage equality, pay equality and
(6) All the Republican presidential candidates want to favor the Christian
religion, which means disfavoring other religions and non-religions.
(7) All the Republican presidential candidates reject the Iran peace deal,
meaning that we risk another unwinnable war fought on the same false premises as
the war with Iraq: WMDs that don't exist and couldn't be used if they did.
(8) All the Republican presidential candidates reject Affordable Healthcare
(Obamacare) but offer nothing to replace it but empty rhetoric.
(9) All the Republican presidential candidates pander to the NRA and refuse to
consider sane gun control laws to protect innocent children.
(10) All the Republican presidential candidates are backward-looking on race,
sex, sexual preference, science, unions, religious tolerance, and separation of
church and state.
Donald Trump's Plan to Punish Women Makes Perfect Sense ...
Donald Trump's plan to punish women who have abortions makes perfect sense ...
if abortion is "murder." Unfortunately, it seems no one bothered to advise Trump
that the GOP doesn't really believe that abortion is murder, or there would be
no exceptions for rape, incest, pregnancies in the first 20 weeks, or the
mother's health being endangered. So why does the GOP pretend to believe that
abortion is a crime? For two very bad reasons. First, to get votes from dumbed-down voters
who ignore the evidence of science and insist that unviable fertilized eggs have
"souls" from the moment of conception. (Never ask why so many pregnancies are
aborted by nature; if God Almighty murders fetuses, that is hunky-dory and not a
the GOP is led by chauvinists determined to "keep women in their proper place."
Male chauvinists believe that a woman's proper place is barefoot, pregnant and
obedient to men, God and nature. Male chauvinists do not like uppity women
("feminazis") who take their health and sex lives into their own hands!
How Not to "Win"
Donald Trump’s campaign has been accused of incompetency for losing delegates in
states that he won by substantial margins. But things hit a new low when the
Trumpster revealed that his campaign can't even secure the support of his own
family! "They had a long time [to] register and they were, you know, unaware of
the rules, and they didn't, they didn't register in time," Trump told Fox &
Friends, explaining that Eric and Ivanka Trump would not be voting to make
America great again in New York’s April 19 primary. "So they feel very, very
guilty." Trump then said that he was considering an adjustment in Eric and
Flip Washington a Giant Dodo Bird!
According to Haley Barbour, former Mississippi governor and Republican National
Committee chairman, some vexed voters say, "'I'm mad as hell and I want to send
Washington the bird,' and Donald Trump is the greatest manifestation of a
gigantic middle finger that I've ever seen."
More Waffles, Please!
After insisting that it is absolutely necessary to ban all Muslims until "we
figure out what's going on," Donald Trump waffled and told MSNBC's Chris
Matthews there would be "exceptions" for his rich Muslim friends. Of course rich
Muslims never do anything wrong ... Osama bin Laden, for instance. After
claiming that nuclear proliferation is his number one concern, Trump said that
Saudi Arabia should be allowed to develop nukes. But Osama bin Laden and most of
the 9-11 conspirators and attackers were Saudis. Has Trump ever heard of a coup?
Has he flipped his lid, or did he ever have one in the first place?
Trump took seven different "waffling" positions on abortion in 48 hours: (1) First,
he tried to evade the question. (2) Then he said women must be punished for
having abortions. (3) He then said that men should not be punished for
abortions, even though they are often the ones putting pressure on pregnant
girls and women to have them. (4) Trump then said the issue was "unclear" and the question of
punishment should be left to the states. (5) Later, he said the women were
"victims" and their doctors should be punished instead. (6) Next, Trump said
that he supported existing abortion laws which should not be changed. (7)
Finally, his campaign tried to bail him out by saying that the laws would stay
the same until President Trump appointed judges who would then "change the law."
Neither Trump nor his campaign seem to understand that laws are changed by
Congress, not judges! Or does Trump favor activist judges who ignore the will of
the people and the law as it is written, to rule by fiat? In any case, Trump
appears to be pro-choice, or, more correctly, pro-multiple-choice.
Etch-a-Sketch Campaigns Unfold ... Only to Fold?
Donald Trump is quite obviously trying to run an Etch-a-Sketch campaign, in
which he will morph into a "more presidential" candidate in order to appeal to
voters with functional brains. But Trump is greatly hampered by his inability to
control his motor-mouth, and his tone-deafness to common decency. It's hard to
imagine Trump not acting like a truant tyke whenever he doesn't get what he
wants immediately. Terrible Ted Cruz will also attempt an Etch-a-Sketch reset of
his campaign, but he is so slimy, smarmy and detestable that he will may find it
impossible to woo millions of undecideds into voting for him.
The Sleaze Squeeze Is On
The sleaze squeeze is on. Donald Trump has the most votes, but it seems the GOP
elite will deny him the nomination. But the GOP elite hate Ted Cruz as much as
they hate Donald Trump. Will they double-cross both Trump and Cruz? Will the
nomination go to John Kasich, Bishop Willard Mitt Romney, Lyin' Paul Ryan, or
some other name they pull out of a hat?
Donald Trump: Zombie Candidate?
Is Donald Trump the Republican party's Zombie candidate: damaged, brain-dead,
lurching about wildly, but unstoppable and with an insatiable appetite to devour
everything in its path? Trump is unacceptable to large majorities of women,
people of color, Hispanics, voters under 30, and those with college degrees. In
the voters who represent the country’s demographic future. All view him
unfavorably by a 2-1 ratio, according to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll.
"There is no precedent for this," said Neil Newhouse, a veteran Republican
pollster. "In the modern polling era, since around World War II, there hasn’t
been a more unpopular potential presidential nominee than Donald Trump." But
unfortunately for the GOP, Trump's closest competitor, Terrible Ted Cruz, has
been called "the most loathed man in American politics."
Playing the Ultimate Trump Card: Nukes
First, Donald Trump said that as president he would command American soldiers to
track down and "take out" the families of terrorists: not because they pose any
threat to Americans, but in acts of "retribution." But of course deliberately
murdering women and children is evil, a war crime, and extremely bad military
strategy. No American general has suggested such grotesque operations, nor would
American soldiers obey such heinous orders. Then Trump said that he wants to be
"unpredictable" and won't rule out an attack on China. Trump has also talked
about abandoning our NATO and SEATO allies. Just let other nations have nukes,
he says. But what if some crazy dictator rises to power and is unfriendly to the
free world and the United States? We could end up facing more nations like North
Korea, each threatening the world with destruction if they can't have their way.
Now, like a demented Dr. Strangelove, Trump says that he won't rule out using
nukes in Europe and the Middle East. He seems to be growing crazier by the
minute. In the ever-escalating madness of Donald Trump, he claims to be more
concerned about nuclear proliferation than anything else, then talks idly about
using nukes and letting more countries acquire them, including Japan, South
Korea, and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia seems like a particularly bad idea, with
Mecca being a focal point of Islamic jihadists and the country being controlled
by a close-knit group of royals who have been accused of funding and
evangelizing an extremist version of Islam. Most of the 9-11 attackers and
conspirators were Saudis, including Osama bin Laden. Do we really want them to
have nukes? The Donald certainly does ...
ANDERSON COOPER: Saudi Arabia, nuclear weapons?
DONALD TRUMP: Saudi Arabia, absolutely.
Donald Trump claims to be a military genius but Ted Cruz called the real estate
tycoon's plans for NATO "catastrophically foolish." Speaking on Fox News
with Chris Wallace, Cruz said Trump was "out of his depth." He continued,
"Abandoning Europe, withdrawing from the most successful military alliance of
modern times, it makes no sense at all. It would hand a massive victory to
(Russian President Vladimir) Putin, [and] a massive victory to ISIS." However, Cruz is
also catastrophically foolish, since he said that if he were elected president,
his approach to ISIS would be to "carpet bomb them into oblivion."
American generals and other military experts have pointed out that carpet
bombing is very foolish, and a war crime.
The Mad Carpet Bombers
According to Ted "the Mad Carpet Bomber" Cruz, if we elect him, "We will have a
president who would make clear we will utterly destroy ISIS. ... We will carpet
bomb them into oblivion." Cruz seems to favor carpet-bombing parts of Iraq and
Syria with nukes, as he said that he would "carpet bomb" to see if the sand
will "glow" at night, in some sort of macabre joke. Here is what a real
expert, Major General Robert Scales, the former head of the U.S. War College,
has to say on the subject: "Mr. Cruz is a lawyer and a foreign-policy
. Anyone with any
understanding of military strategy knows that 'carpet-bombing' is a term used by
neophyte trying to sound tough.
Indiscriminate bombing has never been a military strategy, and it would be
senseless in an age of 'smart' weaponry and precise targeting. In Syria and
Iraq, mass bombing would kill hundreds of innocent civilians and fuel
radicalization. amateurs That's
just another one of those phrases that people with no military experience throw
around. America has never carpet-bombed anyone at any time because that's not
our doctrine." In my
opinion it's hard to laugh at Creepy Ted Cruz. His gallows humor about carpet
bombing with nukes certainly suits him, because he looks like death warmed over,
and his policies are. As a friend of mine pointed out this about carpet bombing: "The
general is right but understating matters a bit. It would be not only senseless,
it would be brutal, merciless, and murderous in the extreme." Donald Trump also seems to be a fan of indiscriminate
bombing. Once can almost feel the glee in their voices as the Cruz Controller
and the Trump of Doom brag about how many people they are willing to kill to
"make America great again." Defense Secretary Ashton Carter and the
Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Paul Selva, later assessed and
addressed Mr. Cruz's grotesque prescription. The wanton bombing Mr. Cruz
repeatedly refers to, General Selva said, is categorically "not the way that we
apply force in combat. It isn't now, nor will it ever be." That's why military leaders utter
the term 'carpet-bomb' only while laughing at Mr. Cruz.
Trump Torture Quotes
Trump on waterboarding. "I think it's great but I don't think we go far enough!"
"I would bring back waterboarding and I'd bring back a hell of a lot worse than
waterboarding." [Thumbscrews? The Rack?]
"Waterboarding would be fine. If they can expand the laws, I would do a lot more
than waterboarding," Trump said on NBC's "Today" program.
"Don't tell me it doesn't work. Torture works, OK folks? I
think we should go much stronger than waterboarding, that's the way I feel."
"Would I approve waterboarding? You bet your ass I would. In a heartbeat. I
would approve more than that. It works. Only a stupid person would say it
"And if it doesn't work, they deserve it anyway for what they do to us."
What other more extreme forms of torture is Trump so anxious to bring back? The
CIA's discontinued "enhanced interrogation" program employed sleep deprivation,
waterboarding, sexual humiliation, mock executions,
threats to kill the children of prisoners, and other harsh
techniques. It turned out that some of the people tortured were not terrorists,
and had no information to give.
Points to Ponder:
Trump has made it abundantly clear that as president he would go far beyond
waterboarding. He sounds anxious to get started, just as he sounded anxious to
"take out" widows and orphans. He seems like a sick puppy to me. Should our
soldiers rape and behead people, because ISIS does such things? Or should we
hold ourselves to a higher standard? At the end of World War II, German soldiers
would retreat from the Russian front to surrender to Americans because they knew
Americans would not torture them. Do we want to sacrifice our nation's honor and
reputation because of the fear and cowardice of someone like Donald John Trump?
Trump has called senior members of our military and intelligence services
"stupid" because they have pointed out that torture does not produce reliable
information. People being tortured will say anything to make the torture stop. A
2014 inquiry conducted by the Senate found "enhanced interrogation techniques"
like waterboarding to be brutal and ineffective. Trump's "stupid people" include
FBI interrogation expert Ali Soufan and Jennifer Bryson, who was an interrogator
at Guantanamo Bay. Bryson said: "Torture is antithetical to effective
intelligence collection. Torture is not just ineffective; it is
counter-effective." She went on to explain that torture results in false
information being provided to stop the pain, whereas gaining honest information
requires the interrogator to appeal to the humanity of the person being
questioned, and build a rapport. John McCain, who spent five years as a prisoner
of war in Vietnam and was tortured, giving him first-hand experience, sternly
criticized Trump and Cruz for their campaign rhetoric: "It is clear to me that
this practice, which is a simulated execution by drowning, amounts to torture as
a reasonable person would define it." One huge problem with Trump and Cruz is
that their oversized egos leave them unable to see and understand their own
limitations. Carpet bombing is evil, a war crime, and bad military strategy.
Torture is evil, a war crime and counter-productive. They should listen to the
experts, but they only listen to themselves. Trump is a real estate salesman.
Cruz is a lawyer. They have no business being commander-in-chief of our military
and intelligence services.
What would happen to the United States if Donald Trump were to be elected
president and actually do the things he has promised to do? On the positive
side, if one likes ballroom dancing, there will be a $100 million Trump Grand
Ballroom addition to the White House. On the negative side? Well, just imagine a
deranged racist and fascist like Adolph Hitler, with the nuclear codes.
The Donald Scolded for Being Childish

Cruz, you retweeted an unflattering picture of her next to a picture of your
Donald Trump: I thought it was a nice picture of Heidi. I thought it was fine.
Cooper: Come on!
Trump: I thought it was fine. She's a pretty woman. [Trump is obviously lying,
as the picture chosen was surely the most unflattering one available.]
Cooper: You're running for president of the United States!
Trump: Excuse me, excuse me. I didn't start it. I didn't start it.
Cooper: But sir, with all due respect: That's the argument of a five-year-old.
Trump: I didn't start it—no it's not.
Cooper: The argument of a five-year-old is: "He started it."
Trump: Excuse me. You would say that. That's the problem with our country. [The
"problem with our country" is that presidential candidates are expected to act
like adults rather than brats?]
Cooper: Every parent knows a five-year-old who says "he started it."

Donald Trump's Dangerous Delusions
Even if Donald Trump is not the Antichrist, as more and more people are now
suggesting, his delusions make him a very dangerous man to be in charge of the
United States military and nuclear codes. Take, for instance, what Trump said
when he phoned his friends at "Morning Joe" for a chat recently. They try to
give him easy questions, since that's what he has told them he prefers. So here
is a "softball" question, followed by the Trumpster's delusional response:
Mika Brzezinski: Who are you talking to consistently since we
have some dire foreign policy issues percolating around the world. Who are you
consulting with consistently so you are ready on day one?
Donald Trump: I'm speaking with myself, number one, because I
have a very good brain and I've said a lot of things. In fact, in my book, in
2000, I talked about Osama bin Laden, and I do remember someone put the book in
front of Joe who said, "No way he talked about Osama bin Laden before the World
Trade Center came down," and they said "No, he really did," and I remember Joe
looking at it and saying "That's amazing." So I know what I'm doing. I talk to a
lot of people and at the appropriate time, I'll tell you who they are. My
primary consultant is myself and I have a good instinct about this stuff.
However, Trump does not have "good instincts about this stuff" and there is
nothing "amazing" except the gullibility of the people Trump fools with his flim-flam
act. In his book, when he mentioned Osama bin Laden, he did not predict anything
that OBL would do in the future. Rather, he pooh-poohed the idea that OBL was a
major threat, and used him as an example of how the U.S. government was making
much ado about very little. The potential act of terrorism that Trump did
agonize over was a nuclear attack, which did not happen and which many other
people had predicted and agonized over. So there is nothing at all remarkable
about Trump's intuitions. And his abilities as a prophet are obviously not very
good, or he wouldn't have two failed marriages, four bankruptcies, and a series
of failed businesses such as Trump University, Trump Mortgage, Trump Vodka, Trump
Steaks, Trump Airlines, Trump Magazine, Trumpnet, Trump: the Game, Tour de
Trump, Donald Trump:
The Fragrance, Trump Fire, Trump Power, the New Jersey Generals, Trump Hotels
and Casino Resorts, etc. Furthermore, his claims to always
hire the very best people hold no water, or all Trump's businesses would have
been successful. I am reminded of the old joke about the Psychic Network going
out of business due to bad business decisions. Trump's many business failures
prove that he is no prophet, and often picks the wrong people to advise him or
ignores their good advice.
Will President Trump Deport Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio?
If he becomes president, will The Donald deport Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio as
illegal, undocumented aliens? Rubio is an "anchor baby" by Trump's definition,
since neither of his parents were American citizens at the time he was born.
Will Trump live up to his word and deport Rubio? Cruz was born in Canada and is
thus a natural-born citizen of Canada. It appears that his father and mother
both became citizens of Canada, since their names appear on Canadian voter
lists. Cruz would have to be naturalized, according to Trump, and if his
paperwork is not in order, he should be deported without a trial or due process.
But what about The Donald himself? His mother was Scottish. His father was
conceived in Germany, to German parents. Unless Trump can conclusively prove
that his grandparents were American citizens, that makes him an anchor baby, and
he should deport himself. After all, anyone suspected of being an illegal alien
is guilty until proven innocent, according to the infallible Wisdom of Trump.
Trump Never Expected to Win
Stephanie Cegielski, a former strategist, spokesperson and Communications
Director for the "Make America Great Again" Super PAC has come clean in an open
letter about Donald Trump, the man she formerly supported as a candidate for
president. Some of her observations:
"It pains me to say this, but he is the presidential equivalent of Sanjaya on
American Idol." [Sanjaya was known primarily for his unusual hairdo, not his
Trump's original goal was not to win the nomination, but to get around 12% of
the votes. "His candidacy was a protest candidacy."
"In 2015, I fell in love with the idea of the protest candidate who was not
bought by corporations."
No one expected Trump to become the frontrunner: "I don't think even Trump
thought he would get this far. And I don't even know that he wanted to."
But with each outrageous Trump statement came another leap in the polls. "Just
when I thought we were finished, The Donald gained more popularity."
Now Trump's ego has "taken over the driver's seat, and nothing else matters. The
Donald does not fail. The Donald does not have any weakness. The Donald is his
own biggest enemy."
"I'll say it again: Trump never intended to be the candidate. But his pride is
too out of control to stop him now."
"The hard truth is: Trump only cares about Trump. He is not your voice. He is
only Trump's voice."
"I am, in my heart, a policy wonk" but "The man does not know policy, nor does
he have the humility to admit what he does not know — the most frightening
position of all."
"I am now taking full responsibility for helping create this monster — and
reaching out directly to those voters who, like me, wanted Trump to be the real
Trump's campaign "has nightmarishly morphed into a charade that is poised to do
irreparable damage to this country if we do not stop this campaign in its
Cegielski concluded her open letter by noting that when disasters happen, Trump
expresses no sorrow and gives no condolences or words of support, but only talks
about building walls and his "greatness."
The Obama Blame Game
Let's place the blame where the blame is due: Barack Obama drove the GOP crazy.
How so? Well, first there's his name, which sounds Muslim. Second, there's his
skin, which is less than lily white. And third, he had the temerity to run for
president of the United States and win. Having a non-white president with an
odd-sounding name was the straw that broke the pachyderm's racist back. Then the
crazy lies flew hot and heavy. Now Donald Trump's supporters believe in truly
crazy conspiracy theories: for instance, 62% say Barack Obama is a Muslim and
61% say he was born in another country. Other common beliefs about Obama include
that he is "anti-American," a "communist," a "totalitarian," a "dictator," and
that he bows down to other countries and puts them before America. None of these
things are true, of course, and to believe untrue things is the definition of
insanity. The GOP has been driven crazy by hatred, fear and loathing of
America's first black president. Crazy people want a crazy leader who confirms
their crazy ideas and promises to right the "wrongs" they imagine they suffered.
Thus, Barack Obama is responsible for the rise of Donald Trump: not because of
anything he did or didn't do, but simply by being elected president.
Trumped by Protesters?
Can Donald Trump manage a country of 300 million diverse citizens, when he can't
even manage his campaign events? The fiasco in Chicago is a foretaste of a Trump
presidency. Trump favors people who agree with him, and obviously thinks
everyone else can and should be silenced, manhandled, evicted and/or jailed. He
speaks fondly of the "good old days" when protesters were roughed up, then
carried "out on a stretcher." He says that he'd love to punch the protesters in
the face, himself. But how will that fly in a nation where the citizens believe
they have the right to assemble, dissent and speak their minds freely? Trump has
been inciting violence by using force to deny protesters their inalienable
rights ... will he now reap the whirlwind?
Rather than accepting responsibility for the violence he inspired, Trump blamed
Bernie Sanders, calling him a "communist." Trump also blamed ISIS, by tweeting a
video that proved to be a hoax. Trump's lame excuse was: "All I know is what's
on the internet."
Trump says that he doesn't condone or incite violence, but his bellicose words
say otherwise. He has invited crowds to "knock the crap out of" protesters.
"Just knock the hell" out of them. "I promise you, I will pay for the legal
fees. I promise, I promise. It won't be so much 'cause the courts agree with us
too." Trump later confirmed that he is considering paying legal fees for John
Franklin McGraw, a 78-year-old Trump supporter captured on video sucker-punching
Rakeem Jones, a black protester, as Jones was led out of a Trump rally in North
After a Black Lives Matter protester was punched and kicked by his supporters,
Trump said, "Maybe he should have been roughed up." Trump even instructed his
security to confiscate a heckler's coat, sending him into the Vermont winter
without protection: "You know it's about ten degrees below zero outside!" he
enthused at the time, obviously happy to inflict pain on anyone with the courage
to oppose him.
Donald Trump Punning Nicknames
Trump of Doom
The New Furor
Dire Abby (because he tweets relationship advice similar to "Dear Abby" but it's
usually extremely negative, akin to "dump the no-good slut, pronto!")
King of the Whoppers
Fifth Avenue Freeze-Out (for trying to deny disabled vets the right to street
vend on Fifth Avenue, where The Donald sells expensive baubles Himself)
King Tut (because his insults make billions of people go "Tut, tut, tut!")
New York Pork Dork
A number of Trump nicknames are related to fascism, such as "Hair Hitler" (a pun
on Herr Hitler) and The New Furor (a pun on Führer). Are such accusations
warranted? Well, Hair Hitler talking about Muslims and Hispanics does sound a lot like Herr
Hitler talking about Jews. Here's what one prominent American Jew has said on
the subject. Abe Foxman, former National Director of the Anti-Defamation League,
had this to say to The Times of Israel after Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump urged supporters at a
Florida rally Saturday to raise their arms in a salute to him: "As a Jew who
survived the Holocaust, to see an audience of thousands of people raising their
hands in what looks like the ‘Heil Hitler' salute is about as offensive,
obnoxious and disgusting as anything I thought I would ever witness in the
United States of America."
I think The New York Times hit the nail on the proverbial head: "Donald
Trump's flirtation with the Ku Klux Klan should come as no surprise. He has
functioned for years as a rallying point for birthers, conspiracy theorists,
extremists and racists who are apoplectic about the fact that the country
elected a black man president. These groups have driven the Republican Party
steadily rightward, helping to create a national discourse that now permits a
presidential candidate to court racist support without paying a political
Welcome to the Trump Presidency
What happened in Chicago is a foretaste of a Trump presidency. Violence looms
everywhere because Trump, the fascist strongman, seeks to deny ordinary
Americans their freedoms of assembly, dissent and free speech. Trump has said
repeatedly that people who disagree with him are "terrible," shaking his head as
if it is unthinkable that anyone should protest his evil, absurd ideas and the
way he spits venom when he airs them. Just as in the "good old days," people who
think, speak and act independently should be punched, manhandled and jailed,
according to the wisdom of Trump. Fascist strongmen believe that everyone should
believe what they believe, and obey them, or suffer the consequences. So welcome
to the Trump presidency, unless you take the time to vote for someone with
American rather than Nazi values.
The Snake Oil Salesman Tastes His Own Medicine
Turnabout is fair play. The Donald has been denying Americans their
constitutional rights to assemble peacefully, to dissent, and to speak their
minds freely. Now he's had a taste of his own fetid snake oil, since protestors
forced him to cancel a campaign event in Chicago. Of course Trump is not happy
about other Americans fighting fire with fire. In his hypocritical mind, he
should be allowed to do whatever he pleases, while everyone else obeys the
rules. Trump has the mentality of a mob boss, and the manners.
Ted Cruz opined that the bellicose billionaire has created "an environment that
encourages this sort of nasty discourse" calling it a "sad day." He continued:
"Political discourse should occur in this country without the threat of
violence, without anger and rage and hatred [being] directed at each other."
Cruz also said that "in any campaign responsibility starts at the top," pointing
out that when Trump "urges supporters to engage in physical violence, to punch
people in the face, the predictable consequence of that is that it escalates.
Today is unlikely to be the last such incidence."
Stuporman's KryptoniteStuporman, aka Donald Trump, has a fatal weakness: the Truth. While his
superpower is being able to talk gullible people into believing the most
incredible nonsense, in the end the Truth will be Stuporman's kryptonite, his Achilles heel, his
Waterloo. Why? Well, if Trump becomes the Republican nominee for president, undecided
voters will be able to google his name and a topic, and hear all the foolish,
hateful and despicable things he said while courting his "base" of white
supremacists, neo-Nazis and Tea Party tantrum throwers. Yes, they love him
dearly for preaching to the choir and telling them what they long to hear, however
absurd. But during the next round of debates, all the Democratic nominee will
have to do is quote Trump with a Reaganesque "There you go again." As the saying goes, "Loose lips
sink ships" and The Donald's are the loosest on the planet. The Donald has
trumped himself out of the American version of the Game of Thrones, with all the
hate talk and insane plans he can't take back because they are now part of the
public record, and just a google search away.
Is there a way to invest in Donald Trump? If so, would it be wise? Trump has
filed major bankruptcies four times, and many of his business ventures have
ceased operations or gone completely under, including Trump Airlines, Trump
University (currently under investigation for fraud), Trump Vodka, Trump Steaks,
Trump Ice (bottled water), Trump Mortgage, Trump Magazine, Trump the Game, Tour
de Trump, New Jersey Generals (USFL), Trump New Media, Trumped! (talk radio
show), The Trump Network (ISP), GoTrump.com, Trump on the Ocean
(restaurant/catering), etc. But
what about businesses that are still operating? Investors who put their money in
Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts when it went public in 1995 had lost 87% of their
money by 1999. The company was fined by the SEC for "making misleading
statements" in an earnings release. It seems wiser not to invest in The Donald.
But then why vote for someone who has a track record of running businesses into
Trump U 2?
Is The Donald a scam artist in search of the Holy Grail of fraud: the White
House and control of the U.S. military and nuclear codes? He certainly scammed
many gullible consumers with his "Trump University." Trump tells potential
buyers what they want to hear, like the oily salesman at the used car lot. Is
that the kind of president we want?
"Donny has tiny little hands, so he must have a tiny little pee-pee!"
"Hell no, my schlong is yuuuuge, little Marco! Want me to whip it out and prove
"Eeew! Ted is carrying food around in his cheeks like a hamster, and showing it
to everyone! How disgusting!"
Apparently, this is the best the Republican party has to offer voters.
My wife has finally figured out who Donald Trump reminds her of ... Goober Pyle.
The Donald does resemble the original Goober with his oafish, buffoonish facial
expressions, clueless shoulder shrugs and "whaddya expect?" upturned hand
gestures. But George Lindsey was a professional actor playing a goofball for
laughs. Trump is a malevolent know-nothing who talks tough about punching
protestors for exercising their First Amendment rights, bringing back
waterboarding and more ominous forms of torture, forcing American soldiers to
become mass murderers of widows and orphans, and deporting 11 million people
without due process. Trump in his colorful (and sometimes off-color) rhetoric
and style resembles Dixiecrat politicians of yore like "Pitchfork" Ben Tillman,
"Big Jim" Folsom, Huey Long and George C. Wallace. But when Trump talks about
his plans for the American military, he sounds disturbingly like Hitler and
Mussolini. If he's a Goober, he's far from lovable or likeable, except perhaps
to racists, fascists and people so gullible they can't process the words coming
out of his mouth.
Super Tuesday has come and gone, and The Donald remains the Republican
frontrunner for president. I propose that we rename the ill-fated day Stupor
Tuesday, in honor of the latest American superhero, Stuporman. His superpower is
putting voters into comas and making them dream that he has other magical
superpowers, such as the ability to defeat ISIS and make Mexico pay for a
mythical wall. When Americans finally wake from their stupor they will have a
helluva hangover, the price of getting drunk on nonsense.
Does Donald Trump Have a Secret Affection for the KKK?
Donald Trump is being praised and supported by the KKK and other white
supremacist organizations and individuals. David Duke has publicly endorsed The
Donald, saying it would be "treason" against their "heritage" for white
supremacists not to vote for Trump. When asked if he would disavow and speak out
against such supporters, Trump declined, saying he "doesn't know" about them.
But everyone knows what the KKK is, and what it stands for, so Trump is
obviously lying. And Trump, who claims to have one of the world's best memories,
does know who David Duke is, because he called him a "Klansman" when he left the
Reform party, citing him as one of his reasons for leaving. Why would Trump not
speak out against the KKK? Well, his father, Frederick Trump, was arrested at a
KKK rally. We know it was him because the arrest record contains the address
where he was living at the time. Furthermore, when Fred Trump was Woody
Guthrie's landlord, Guthrie wrote songs about "Old Man Trump" and how he
discriminated against black Americans.
When David Duke endorsed Ronald Reagan, he was told what to do with his
endorsement in no uncertain terms. But Trump sounds like a Grand Wizard himself,
when he talks about people with darker skin. He has made grotesquely offensive
racist remarks about blacks, Hispanics, Arabs and Jews. We need to keep in mind
that Arabs and Jews are Semites, and antisemitism is a hallmark of fascism.
During his election campaign, Trump has been re-tweeting material provided by
fascist organizations, including a Mussolini quote. Trump's first wife Ivana
told Vanity Fair in an interview that he kept a book of Hitler's
speeches at his bedside. Is Trump a fascist? Does he sympathize with the KKK? Is
he a chip off his father's racist block? If it looks like a duck, waddles like a
duck and quacks like a duck ...
Viewer ratings of Fox News have dropped precipitously during the 2015-2016
presidential election campaign. In February the rating dropped to 14 percent. Is
it possible that Fox News viewers are not happy about being constantly
misinformed and brainwashed?
Trump national spokeswoman Katrina Pierson and conservative commentator S. E. Cupp
on CNN's "The Lead." Pierson, who is famous (or infamous) for wearing
a necklace of strung-together-bullets on the air, argued that that "there's no constitutional
requirement to allow anyone to immigrate to the United States" and thus Trump's
proposal to ban Muslims "is really nothing new." Cupp pointed out that Pierson
is full of bull: "There really is something new to the idea of banning an entire
religious group from entering the country." Pierson argued back that the U.S.
has never "allowed insurgents to come across these borders." Cupp
countered: "No one's talking about allowing insurgents [to enter]. You're
talking about not allowing regular Muslims, that's what you're talking about. No
one's talking about insurgents." Pierson's anti-Semitic response was: "
"So What, They're Muslims"
It's not just The Donald who sounds like Hitler talking about "the Jewish
problem" when he talks about "the Muslim problem." Hitler was an anti-Semite,
but most Arabs are Semites. Doesn't discriminating against Arabs make Donald
Trump and his campaign anti-Semites? Here's a pertinent exchange between
from Arab nations. You know what, so what? They're Muslims."
Of course Hitler and the Nazis said the same thing in
their day: "Pierson So what, they're Jews."
has also defended Trump using the word
"pussy" in public by comparing him to the American Founding Fathers.Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse has three big problems with The Donald. He
says that Trump is unvetted, lacks core convictions, and has a sweeping view of
the powers of the executive branch, calling him an "Obama Republican."
Also, the sassy Sasse find Trump to be a tad hypocritical.
"He says he's a strongman but he's afraid of Megyn Kelly," Sasse told
CNN. Sasse also wonders if Trump is trustworthy. "Isn't that weird that he brags
about getting wives to break their oaths?" Sasse said. "I care if the guy takes
an oath to the Constitution and keeps it." Trump bragged about his sex life in
his book The Art of the Comeback, writing: "If I told the real stories
of my experiences with women, often seemingly very happily married and important
women, this book would be a guaranteed best-seller."
Trumpertantrum Cruz mocked The Donald, tweeting: "Yet another #Trumpertantrum ... @realDonaldTrump

But it wasn't just Trump accusing the Cruz Controller of
underhandedness. The always equable (except when stabbing friends and attacking
his mother with a hammer) Dr. Ben Carson also accused the Texas Sidewinder of
slithering and skittering his way through Iowa's cornfields and polling booths.
The Holy Cruzader is the son of a Southern Baptist Minister, for Chrissake! Surely we can
trust the son of a preacherman! Or can we? Cruz's oily "apology" to Carson made me
feel certain that we can no more trust Ted Cruz than its next meal can trust
the embrace of a boa constrictor.
Trump: Ted Cruz is a "Pussy" and Hillary Clinton is "Evil"
"What he said!"
"What she said!"
"She called you a pussy, so nanny-nanny-boo-boo!"
Donald Trump pretend-admonished, then quoted a woman who called Ted Cruz a
"pussy" at one of his recent rallies. Trump had been chastising Cruz for failing
to unequivocally endorse torture (waterboarding) at the most recent presidential
debate. Trump interrupted his harangue to point out that a woman in the crowd
had "just said a terrible thing." Trump continued: "You know what she said?
Shout it out because I don't want to—OK, you're not allowed to say, and I never
expect to hear that from you again. She said—I never expect to hear that from
you again!—she said he's a pussy. That's terrible! Terrible!" Trump then threw
up his hands in mock despair. Trump reminds me of a potty-mouthed playground
bully. Later, Trump made the morning show rounds, telling hosts that he wasn't
calling Ted Cruz a pussy, just repeating what that woman said, "like a retweet."
On MSNBC's "Morning Joe" he called it "a great moment," saying "I got a standing
ovation, the place went wild. Somebody said mixed cheers. Let me tell you the
place went wild." He also got in a quick jab at Hillary Clinton, calling her
Donald Trump: 666
Mark of the Beast?
Okay, this is going to sound crazy, but I swear I'm not making it up.
The Trump family owns the most expensive single building ever sold in the United Sates, at 666
Fifth Avenue in the heart of New York City. Seriously. And the
Trumps are in the process of erecting another building at One Journal Square
that will be 666 feet tall, and cost $666 million dollars. No, I am not pulling
your leg! As Yogi Berra said, "You could look it up." The Bible says that in the last days the anti-Christ will deceive even
the very elect. Who just endorsed Donald Trump? Evangelical heavyweights like
Sarah Palin, Franklin Graham and Jerry Falwell Jr. Again,
, please pardon my French.
I am not making this shit up This is really happening. He who has ears to hear, let him hear
(or her). The facts are presented here:
Does it bother you that Donald Trump sounds like the
second coming of Adolph Hitler? Does it strike you as odd that evangelical
Christians are ecstatically supporting a man who is the Donald Trump: 666
Mark of the Beast? complete
antithesis of Jesus Christ? Why did the Hebrew prophets warn us about
the Trump of Doom? There are not one or two or three
connections between the Trumps and the number 666. There are many
connections. If you click the hyperlink and read the article, you are free to
draw your own conclusions.

The Coming Landslide Victory for Democrats
Here's the obvious thing: If you need the endorsement of Wailin' Sarah Palin,
Jerry Fall-Hell Jr., or Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson, then you are
and should not
be running for president of the United States! That's like seeking endorsements
from Ronald McDonald, Bozo and the Cookie Monster. No one in his/her right mind
seeks such crackpot "endorsements." When John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his
running mate, it was an admission of defeat. Ditto for Trump asking for her
blessing. When the only "major endorsement"
Ted Cruz can come up with is Phil Robertson, it's an admission of defeat. The
GOP is not a serious political party any longer ... it's a carnival, a freak
show. Once the Bearded Lady and the Goat Boy have been officially nominated, how
many votes will they garner in the general election, really? Donald Trump is a
buffoon. Ted Cruz makes Tricky Dick Nixon seem quite personable. Crazy Ben
Carson may be a sociopath, but in this race he seems like an absolute angel! The
GOP does not have a single viable candidate for president because the GOP as a
party has lost its ever-lovin' marbles. Here are some of the GOP's more exciting
endorsements: seriously fucked up
Phil Robertson, the geezery patriarch of Duck Dynasty, endorsed Ted
Sarah Palin endorsed Donald Trump, sounding like Yoda on acid at a poetry slam.

everything counter to the teachings of Jesus Christ.
The Daily Stormer, the most popular white supremacist website, endorsed Trump,
urging white men to "vote for the first time in our lives for the one man who
actually represents our interests."

Donald Trump Weeps Crocodile Tears for Vets, after Sweeping
Them Off the Street for More than a Decade
Donald Trump was running away the election, but
now he's running away with the debates, out of fear
that Megyn Kelly will be "unfair" to him! But what did Kelly do, that turned
America's self-professed tough-guy hero into a cowardly and buffoonish zero? Why
will there soon be spoofs called "Kelly's Zeroes" starring Trump lookalikes? Her
"unfairness" was merely quoting what Trump had said himself, on the public
I have two new nicknames for Donald Trump, and I'll explain why below:
The Vet Evictor
Rather than risking another tough question by Megyn Kelly at the next Republican
presidential debate, Donald Trump will altruistically host an event to raise
money for veterans. That's rich, according to disabled vets because The Donald
strove to sweep them from the street outside Trump Tower for well over a decade.
Trump will "raise money for the Veterans and Wounded Warriors who have been
treated so horribly by our all-talk, no-action politicians." But in reality
Trump talked and acted to
veterans in need from being allowed anywhere near his gleaming Fifth Avenue
headquarters. As reported by the prevent New York Daily News, in 1991 Trump
wrote a letter saying: "While disabled veterans should be given every
opportunity to earn a living, is it fair to do so to the detriment of the city
as a whole or its tax-paying citizens and businesses? Do we allow Fifth Avenue,
one of the world's and
finest shopping districts,
to be turned into an outdoor flea market, clogging and seriously downgrading the
area?" In 2004 he said in a letter to New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg: "Whether
they are veterans or not, they should not be allowed to sell on this
most luxurious and
most important shopping street ... The
image of New York City will suffer ... I hope you can stop this very
prestigious situation before it is
too late." Disabled veterans had been accorded special vendor licenses by New
York since the Civil War. Trump tried very hard to have those licenses taken
away. Sean Williams is a vet who sells hats and scarves on East 43rd Street,
just off Fifth Avenue. "I was going to re-enlist, but I had kids." What does he
think of Trump's efforts? "Despicable. He never served. And not his kids." When
Williams learned that Trump was staging a veterans' event, he had a one-word
response: "Wow!" Another hat and scarf vendor with a Disabled American Veterans
sign on his cart declined to give his name, but also had a one-word response for
Trump: "Disgusting." Two blocks uptown another vet, Annette Seck, was also
selling hats and scarves. "Talk about Private Benjamin!" She is aware of Trump's
efforts to chase vets from the streets and considers the continued presence of
vets as a defeat for The Donald. Perhaps he doesn't always "win" as he claims.
"He lost, because of a lot veterans in the street." However, "If he gets
elected, I'll die," she said simply. Another disabled veteran is Dondi McKellar,
who sells bubble blowers. He is not impressed by Trump's conversion. "Now he's
different, he's born again." But vets are still barred from vending close to
Trump Tower. "First class war vets, second class back-at-homes," he says,
adding, "Go take a picture of the planters." Trump has placed large cement
planters outside his tower, to keep peddlers away. As reported by deplorable The New
York Times, in 1984 Trump wrote in the letter that planters were needed
because "all sorts of " had
"effectively ruined the horrors
of the space which everyone loves so much." McKellar says, "Everybody got their
own thing, but bubbles make me happy." He's an active participant in the effort
by Veterans 4 Veterans to fully restore the covenant made in 1894 that disabled
veterans would be free to sell goods in the street. "We're part of why we have
the freedom we have. This country we served should give us the opportunity to
come out and vend." But he doesn't expect Trump to welcome him, despite his
conversion. "He wouldn't have liked me in front of his establishment," McKellar
said. He suspects Trump may be that rare person who proves immune to the charm
of his bubbles, which seem to make almost everybody smile. "If he gets upset
with my bubbles ... He get upset with Megyn Kelly, so I don't put it past him."
Many Americans have fallen under The Donald's curious spell, but not the vets
who live upwind of his fancy-schmancy Tower. They know the real score. beautiful ambience
The "Most Fabulous Whiner" Reveals His Superpower!
Megyn Kelly? "I don't like her!" Donald Trump told Wolf Blitzer. "She doesn't
treat me fairly!" Oh my, The Donald is having another hissy fit, another temper
tantrum! But no one should be surprised because whining is Trump's superpower,
and his primary claim to fame. Don't believe me? Here's how Trump described the
secret of his success: "I am the most fabulous whiner! I whine because I want to
win! And I'm not happy if I'm not winning! I'm a whiner and I keep whining and
whining until I win!" All those bankruptcies, the many failed companies and two
failed marriages? Those were the times The Donald forgot to whine! As long as
Trump whines, he is ,
which means this election is over, INVINCIBLE finis, wrapped up, in the proverbial
Trump, who's planning to boycott the Fox News/Google debate, once criticized
Republican candidates who refused to attend a debate he tried to convene: "We're
not seeing a lot of courage," he said about the debate he wanted to host with
Newsmax in 2011. That statement was made, ironically, to Megyn Kelly! During the
same interview Kelly asked him, "Do you really think you're a better moderator
than I am?" Trump replied, "No. I could never beat you. That wouldn't even be
close. That would be no contest." He added, "You have done a great job, by the
way. And I mean it." (But that was before she had the temerity to quote The
Donald Himself. Now Kelly is "unfair," a "lightweight," a "bimbo," on the rag,
etc.) "Romney doesn't look courageous" Trump said when Mitt Romney decided not
to do the debate, according to the Washington Post. "Some of them don't
have the courage!" Trump told Don Imus. "We have guys who are afraid to go into
a debate. How would they stand up to China if afraid to debate?" he asked.
But here are some possibly valid questions: How will The Donald fair against
China, if he is afraid to face tough questions by American reporters? Megyn Kelly is a conservative who
has been on friendly terms with the Timid Trumpster until just
recently. What will happen when Dainty Donald has to face the
formidable, battle-tested Hillary Clinton? She must be licking her lips, seeing
how easy it is to make him collapse in tears of self-pity. What would have
happened if Barack Obama had packed it in every time someone was unfair to him?
What if Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Rand Paul and the other
Republican presidential candidates had decided to stay home because Trump was
unfair to them? Is Trump a tough guy, really, or is he just a Prima Donald?

but as uninformed adolescents on military and security matters. Also a former
CIA Director, Gates joked that if Donald Trump wins the presidency, he would
emigrate to Canada. He condemned the media for failing to challenge candidates
from both parties on promises he believes are unaffordable, illegal or
unconstitutional. "The level of dialogue on national security issues would
embarrass a middle schooler," Gates said of the Republican contenders at a
Politico Playbook event in Washington. "People are out there making threats and
promises that are totally unrealistic, totally unattainable. Either they really
believe what they're saying or they're cynical and opportunistic and, in a way,
you hope it's the latter, because God forbid they actually believe some of the
things that they're saying." Gates also blasted the Republican field for their
rhetoric about destroying the Islamic State. "First of all they, they don't know
what they're talking about," Gates told MSNBC. Donald Trump has said as
president he would "bomb the s---" out of the Islamic State, while rival Ted
Cruz has suggested carpet bombing them into oblivion. Gates strongly disagrees:
"Carpet bombing would be completely useless. It's totally contrary to the
American way of war" because of "total disregard for civilians. So, I
mean, part of the concern that I have with the campaign, particularly when it
comes to national security, is that the solutions being offered are so
simplistic and so at odds with the reality of the rest of the world, with the
way the world really works." Alluding to political outsiders Trump and retired
neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Gates challenged their ability to be an effective
president. "I will tell you this: I do think that politics is a profession," he
said. "And I think that if you don't have any experience in how government
works, if you have never been in government, your ability to make the government
work is going to be significantly reduced. It's different than business. It's
different than surgery. It's different than anything else. It's a skill set that
you bring based on experience and based on dealing with other people." Asked
whether any of the Republican candidates met his criteria for
commander-in-chief, Gates said, "I don't see any."
What has the GOP done for the nation lately?
Secretly bombing Cambodia
Selling weapons to Iran to fund death squads in Central America
The invasion of Iraq on false premises
Pretending to "believe" in the unlimited right to bear arms, while making damn
sure no one with a gun gets close to a Republican judge or politician, but
opposing similar protections for children
And now Trump and Cruz are vowing to carpet bomb Iraq and Syria, killing
god-knows-how-many innocent women and children, even though all the real
military experts say such bombing will not work, is immoral and un-American, and
will only make matters much worse!
Trump Campaign Throws Tantrums, Laments Half-Breed President
As one critic put it, "the Donald Trump Experience just keeps getting weirder."
It's like the Jimi Hendrix Experience, with the weird hair and beads, but
without the genius, the great soul or the positive vibes. Trump
campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson, who previously made headlines by wearing
a necklace of bullets during an interview, has been called to the
carpet for tweets in
which she referred to President Obama as the "head Negro" and opined that he
wasn't a "pure breed" because his father wasn't born in the United States.
(My mother was born in England; does that make me a half-breed? My father
has Native American blood. If that makes me a half-breed ―or,
more accurately, a one-sixteenth-breed ―is that a
minus or a plus?) Birds of a racist feather will flock together, and The Donald
Himself has set a very bad example for his campaigners by talking
condescendingly about "the blacks" and "the Hispanics" and how they all "love"
him and will vote for him in droves, when the polls say otherwise. Trump is tone
deaf to his own bigotry, and other members of his campaign seem to be blissfully
unaware of how offensive they sound. More and more the Trump campaign resembles
a romper room full of tykes in their terrible twos and threes, all screaming
potty words and angrily stomping their feet, because there are no adults to put
them in timeout until they learn to behave. Rather, the superannuated headmaster
recently bragged that he is a "fabulous whiner" who whines repeatedly until he
Barack Obama rather politely points out that the GOP has lost its ever-lovin'
marbles and gone insane: "When I ran against John McCain, John McCain and I had
real differences, sharp differences, but John McCain didn't deny climate
science. John McCain didn't call for banning Muslims from the United States.
John McCain was a conservative, but he was well within the mainstream of ―not
just the Republican Party but within our political dialogue. And that's where,
ultimately, any voter is going to have to pay attention: the degree to which the
Republican rhetoric and Republican vision have moved, not just to the right, but
to a place that is unrecognizable."
Victory is Assured: Poetic Palin Endorses Trump!
Sarah Palin just endorsed Donald Trump, so his victory is now
ured. Here are some of Wailin' Palin's more poetic announcements and
We root him on because he roots us on!
Well, look, we are mad, and we've been had!
Yes, the status quo has got to go!
With their failed agenda, it can't be salvaged, it must be savaged!
I'm in it to win it!
No, we're not going to chill!
In fact it's time to drill,
baby, drill and
hold these folks accountable!
This free verse poem is a real stumper. Is Palin talking about a dentist visit,
fracking or f-cking? I believe one must find the key in first line, if one
wishes to unlock the riddle. My best guess is that Palin's speech is about a
root canal, and she was still high on laughing gas when she delivered it. Two
bumbling amateurs are trying to save their constituents' remaining teeth by
giving them root canals. They root around in their mouths. The patients
are mad because they've been "had" by professional dentists who charge money for
their services, when the patients could have just operated on each other! The "status
quo" that "has got to go" is professional dentistry. The "failed agenda" that cannot
be salvaged is a constituent's smile, once the amateurs have "hacked" away at it
(pun intended), so the
teeth must be savagely extracted. Sarah loves guns and knives, so she is "in it
to win it" by displaying her skill with a Bowie knife. She is not going to
"chill" because it's time drill deep down into the socket and cut out roots
the old-fashioned, bloody way! But Sarah will hold the patients accountable, meaning
they will pay dearly for her services. My advice? Go to professional dentists
for dentistry, and go to professional administrators for government. Trump and
Palin are rank amateurs ―emphasis on "rank" ―so
pull rank and vote them back to the white padded cells they escaped from.
Donald Trump has called The Art of the Deal second only to the Bible in
his estimation. In his book, Trump criticized Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan for
overpromising. Trump has also mocked George H. W. Bush's infamous "Read my lips:
no new taxes" pledge. But The Donald is engaging in unfathomable hypocrisy
because no American presidential candidate has ever promised more impossible
things than he has since entering the race. It seems that lying is peachy keen
when Trump wants to sell something: "The final key to the way I promote is
bravado. I play to people's fantasies. People may not always think big
themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a
little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the
biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole.
It's an innocent form of exaggeration—and a very effective form of promotion."
But Bush's "no new taxes" pales in comparison with some of Trump's bizarre
promises, which go far beyond mildly stretching the truth or little white lies.
Trump is selling political swampland and only the truly blind can fail to see
that the price is far, far too high: having a reckless, feckless real estate
salesman in the White House. Should we worry about Trump living up to his
outrageous words, or trying? Yes, because according to The Donald Himself,
writing in Midas Touch: Why Some Entrepreneurs Get Rich and Why Most Don't,
real success comes from "living your words, walking your talk, and talking your
Trailin' Track Palin
In the words of the immortal Plato, "Birdbrains of a feather flock together."
When the Republican party has to call in Sarah Palin to play Joan d'Arc to The
Donald's Dauphin because the Dark & Dastardly Ted Cruz threatens to steal the
fool's-gold-plated throne, we have obviously entered the comedy of the absurd.
Rather than waiting for God, or Godot, we are waiting for Gidget. But can Gidget
save everyone (or anyone) from the Iceman who Cometh? It turns out that Gidget
would be hard pressed to save her pat lapdog ...
Wailin' Sarah Palin appeared out of nowhere (aka Wasilla) to endorse The Donald,
in the hokiest of "speeches," only to immediately disappear again ―presumably
back to Wasilla to bail her troubled son out of jail. Track Palin had just
been arrested for getting drunk, punching and kicking his girlfriend, then
threatening her with an AR-15 in the Palin family home. Unsurprisingly, the
famously bellicose Mama Grizzly Bear took the opportunity to blame President
Obama: "It's a shame that our military personnel even have to wonder if
they have to question whether they're respected anymore. It's starts from the
top. The question though that comes from our own President where they have to
look at him and wonder 'Do you know what we go through? Do you know what we're
trying to do to secure America and to secure the freedom that have been
bequeathed us?'" (Palin probably blames President Obama for her daughter
Bristol's affairs and her children born out of holy Christian wedlock.) And while
Track Palin served in Iraq and could be suffering from PTSD, why wasn't he
awarded a Combat Infantry Badge upon his discharge? Was he ever under fire? Even
if he was, how can anyone blame Barack Obama, who voted
the invasion of Iraq as an Illinois congressman,
along with the majority of House Democrats? And here's a reality check: who
voted against the invasion of Iraq? All
the Republicans who were eligible to cast votes, including Sarah Palin's rogue running mate for the presidency,
John McCain, who later said that we should keep American troops in Iraq for a
century! And why not be honest: Track Palin may have had serious behavioral
problems for he joined the
military. He has been accused of participating in a "vandalism rampage" as a
teenager before in 2005―deflating the tires of 44 buses, breaking
mirrors, and unplugging 110 buses from their engine heating blocks,
forcing an entire school district to close for a day. After the incident,
Sarah Palin sent young Track to Michigan for the 2006-2007 school year, just as
she took Bristol Palin out the Wasilla school system after her first pregnancy.
Willow Palin has been accused of posting homophobic slurs on Facebook. The
entire Palin clan was involved in a much-publicized drunken brawl at a party
that had to be broken up by the Anchorage police, with Bristol allegedly
punching one of the hosts repeatedly in the face. Will Sarah Palin find some
ludicrous way to pin those indiscretions on President Obama as well?
Revenge on the Turds?
I must admit that I was feeling rather clever when I came up with the idea of
deporting Rubio, Cruz and Trump for their lack of compassion for their fellow
refugees. But then a friend pointed out something I had overlooked: "Well, but
Lady Liberty does say 'give me...the wretched refuse,' so maybe it wouldn't be
altogether fair. After all, arguably they were invited." Curses, foiled again!

The Trumps, the KKK and a Prophecy by Woody Guthrie
Woody Guthrie inscribed the phrase "This machine kills fascists" on his guitar
in 1941, shortly after moving to New York City. Will he prove a prophet and help
kill New York City tycoon Donald Trump's chances of getting elected president,
from beyond the grave? Is Donald Trump a racist and a fascist? Does he qualify
for the prophecy? (*)
Donald Trump once told the Washington Post: "My legacy has its roots in my
father's legacy." The Donald often brags about the Trump legacy and following in
his father's footsteps. But Guthrie, author of "This Land is Your
Land," an American anthem about sharing the land with
, was definitely not a fan of
his racist Trumpian landlords. The Donald's father, Frederick Trump, had been arrested at a KKK rally in 1927
for assaulting a police officer in "the near-riot of the parade."(**)
Better known as "Fred," the senior Trump
was the developer and landlord of Beach Haven, a huge New York City apartment complex that
housed 1,804 people according to the 1950 census. It had been financed by millions of
dollars in federally subsidized funds. Trump was later accused of overbilling or
"overestimating" $3.7 million: a huge sum of money in those
days. One of the main reasons for the project had been to provide affordable housing
to soldiers who fought in World War II, so one might say that Fred Trump was
profiteering and using non-existent "costs" to charge them higher rents, or
"double-dipping." When President Dwight D. Eisenhower learned how American
soldiers were being ripped off by profiteers, he was reportedly furious, and
rightly so since he had been their commander during the war and knew what they'd
been through for the sake of their country. equality
Woody Guthrie moved into Beach Haven in 1950. Living there, he soon discovered
Trump's "enthusiastic embrace" of the FHA's guidelines for avoiding
"inharmonious uses of housing" which was a code phrase for racial discrimination
and "a betrayal, if ever there was one, of the New Deal vision that had given
birth to the agency." Woody Guthrie, a believer in equality and a fair deal for
every person of every color, was decidedly not a fan of his landlord:
Old Man Trump knows
Just how much
he stirred up
In the bloodpot of human hearts
When he drawed
That color line
Here at his
Eighteen hundred family project ...
Guthrie even rewrote his signature Dust Bowl ballad "I Ain't Got No Home" into a
"blistering broadside" against his racist landlord:
Beach Haven ain't my home!
I just cain't pay this rent!
My money's down the drain!
And my soul is badly bent!
Beach Haven looks like heaven
Where no black ones come to roam!
No, no, no! Old Man Trump!
Old Beach Haven ain't my home!
The federal government eventually came to the same conclusion as Woody Guthrie.
According to Wikipedia: In 1973, the U.S. Justice Department's Civil Rights
Division filed a civil rights suit against the Trump organization charging that
it refused to rent to black people. The Urban League had sent black and white
testers to apply for apartments in Trump-owned complexes; the whites got the
apartments, the blacks didn't. According to court records, four superintendents
or rental agents reported that applications sent to the central office for
acceptance or rejection were coded by race. A 1979 Village Voice article quoted
a rental agent who said Trump instructed him not to rent to black people and to
encourage existing black tenants to leave. In 1975, a consent decree described
by the head of DOJ's housing division as "one of the most far-reaching ever
negotiated," required Trump to advertise vacancies in minority papers and list
vacancies with the Urban League. The Justice Department subsequently complained
that continuing "racially discriminatory conduct by Trump agents has occurred
with such frequency that it has created a substantial impediment to the full
enjoyment of equal opportunity." The Trumps and their organization have
been repeatedly accused of violating the Fair Housing Act. Throughout the
battles, Donald Trump claimed that his company was being "persecuted" for
refusing to house welfare recipients who couldn't afford apartments, which had
no apparent basis in the allegations. In 1983, the New York Division of Housing
and Community Renewal reported that two Trump Village developments in Coney
Island were at least 95 percent white. In 1989, The Donald told SPY
magazine that it is really white people who bear the brunt of discrimination:
"If I were starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black, because
I believe they do have an actual advantage."
(*) Is Donald Trump a Fascist?
I'm an editor and publisher of Holocaust poetry, and a student of the Holocaust.
I believe Donald Trump has demonstrated that he is a fascist through his own
words and actions, but you are welcome to click the hyperlink and study the
evidence yourself. ―Michael R. Burch
(**) On June 1, 1927, a New York Times article reported that a Fred Trump was
arrested and discharged after a Ku Klux Klan
rally turned into a brawl with Queens police. The brawl reportedly involved over 1,000
Klansmen and 100 police officers, with Fred Trump being one of only seven men
arrested. The address given in the article was Fred Trump's address at the time.
When asked what happened, Donald Trump initially denied that the man arrested was his father, but then in
the same interview seemingly confirmed it by saying: "It's unfair to mention it,
to be honest, because there were no charges." So it seems he knew about the
event, and it is true that his father was arrested, then
later released without charges. Why was Fred Trump one of only seven men
arrested, out of a crowd of over a thousand? Perhaps we'll never know. But in
any case we have the testimony of Woody Guthrie, the Urban League, the Village
Voice and the U. S. Justice Department that Fred Trump was practicing racism.
And when we listen to Donald Trump talk about "the blacks," "the Hispanics" and
"the Jews," it sounds as if the branch didn't fall too far from the tree.

Is The Donald Himself an Anchor Baby?
Donald Trump says that anchor babies are not American citizens and wants to
deport them along with their parents, but is The Donald Himself an anchor baby? Trump's father, Frederick Trump
(formerly Drumpf or Trumpf, according to extremely plausible rumors), married Mary Anne MacLeod in
1936. Mary Anne MacLeod was born in Tong, Stornoway, Scotland on May 10, 1912.
She met Fredrick Trump while vacationing in New York. But how do we
stayed in the United States legally, rather than know ? How do we
she didn't return to Scotland to deliver and raise little Donald with the help
of her family? How do we know that she
ever know married a
legally American citizen? If Donald Trump cannot produce
of his mother's proof American residence and citizenship at the time he was born
in 1942, does that not raise legal
that Donald Trump may be an anchor baby born to a possibly illegal
immigrant mother? And what about his father very serious doubts , Frederick
Drumpf―how do we know with ? Donald Drumpf's grandparents were married in Kallstadt, Germany
in 1902 and only came to the United States when they were expelled by Germany
because Friedrich Drumpf had failed to fulfill his
military obligations, which made him a draft dodger in the German government's
eyes. Elizabeth Drumpf was pregnant with Donald Trump's father at the time they
were stripped of their German citizenship and deported. The Drumpfs did not want
to come to the United States: they were forced! Does being expelled from Germany
and having anchor babies here make the Drumpf family
"real" American citizens, when The Donald Himself claims that merely
being born on American soil is not enough? Don't the American people deserve
that he wasn't an anchor baby absolute certainty
that the Trumps are absolute, completely verifiable proof American
citizens, not a tribe of anchorites? Donald Trump is a prominent and energetic "birther,"
real ? Is this
"natural" American citizenship or but what about
his family's very serious citizenship questions ?
And why did the Drumpfs change their family name? Were they trying to hide
something? Why have The Donald and his father both claimed to be of "Swedish"
origins, rather than German? Could highly unnatural
be the reason for the deception: Donald Trump is a not-so-distant relative of
Adolph Hitler! "Trump is related to Hitler on his paternal grandmother's side,"
explained Ivan Tobsu, director of the National Genealogical Society, which
released its findings after studying the Drumpf family tree. "She lived in
Bavaria and married Adolph Hitler's grand uncle from Austria-Hungary, Johann
Nichtwirklich Drumpf." Suddenly, it all makes perfect sense! Why did Ivana Trump
say that her husband kept a book of Hitler's speeches at his bedside? Why does
Trump sound so much like Hitler talking about the Jews and Gypsies, when he
talks about Muslims and Hispanics? Quite obviously, it's in his effin'
this ! (And while this is obviously
a parody, it does seem The Donald has some explaining to do!) GENES
Ten Things Republican Cats Could and Should Learn from Real

Ditto for sex.
And perhaps most importantly, cats do not follow other cats just because they
caterwaul the the longest and the loudest. Real cats, for instance, would not be
fooled by a fat, ugly, oafish tomcat who showed one day on a stump, claiming to
be "handsome" and "lovable" and promising to magically deliver tons of meat to
their doorsteps if only they appoint him top dog (er, top cat). First, they
would skeptically note that the would-be Fat Cat was, indeed, fat and ugly to
boot, with the world's most hideous orange hair, so how could he possibly claim
to be "handsome"? Then they would coolly note that, although he claimed to be
"loved" by all the black cats and brown cats, in reality nearly all of them
hated and despised him. Finally, they would note that, in reality, he had failed
at mouse-catching more often than he had succeeded: what about his three
marriages, his four bankruptcies, and all his other companies that failed and/or
vanished completely: Trump Airlines, Trump University, Trump Vodka, Trump
Steaks, Trump Mortgage, Trump the Game, Tour de Trump, etc. Real cats are realists and
skeptics, not easily-swindled-suckers. And so, having determined that the Trumpster was a charlatan and a fraud, they would all yawn, stretch, present
their anuses to show what they really of the Orange Impostor, and get back to
living the best possible lives in the real world.
Is Fox News the Dr. Frankenstein Responsible for the Trump
How can we explain the rise of The Donald to the top of the Republican polls?
Well, for year Fox News has been filling its viewers with irrational fears. Now
we have Republican presidential candidates―particularly Donald Trump and Ben
Carson―who seem to actually believe the conspiracy theories and outright lies
broadcast by Faux News. Is Faux News the Dr. Frankenstein responsible for the
creation of the Trump Monster?
The Putin-Trump Bromance Explained
The bromance between Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump actually makes perfect sense. Mr. Putin
is one of the world's "strongman" leaders. The Donald, as wishy-washy as he is,
wants to be seen as a Putin-like strongman. Putin probably thinks Trump is a
flake (because he is), but what's the harm of flattering an egomaniac who may
prove useful later? And Putin's
flattery certainly appears to have worked splendidly with Trump, who craves attention the way a
junkie craves his next fix. I recently stumbled upon an odd piece of writing in
which the author called it his "dream of dreams" to be a punk like the Jean-Paul Belmondo character in Breathless ―the thug who drives around
with a gun pretending to shoot people at random. Oh, to be somebody that
everybody else fears! Some men do "think" like that: mob bosses, gang leaders, and
various other alpha male wannabes. Trump is a pretty big guy, and he used to
collect rents in New York City neighborhoods. Perhaps he learned
to appreciate the advantages of intimidation from someone he admired in his youth. Hell, his father,
Fred Trump, used eminent domain and up to 900 evictions to create Trump Village
in Coney Island. After he had so many people evicted, the development
was named after his family. What arrogance! Perhaps our new strongman wannabe, The Donald, came by his
"talents" the old-fashioned way, by inheriting them. In his own words
The Donald says "eminent domain is wonderful." He told Neil Cavuto of Fox
News that he agreed with the Supreme Court's Kelo decision
"100 percent." So you and I have no real property
rights, according to The Donald. Any developer can condemn our property to build
a casino, a glitzy hotel, or anything else they can dream up. Individual rights
mean little or nothing to The Donald, when he can put his name on another
high-rise and brag about his "success" while ignoring all the people whose homes
Get Smart! (Says the Man from CHAOS)
Donald Trump seems to think Paris is in Germany, since he tweeted: "Man shot

level. Germany is a total mess ―big crime. GET

for CHAOS!―Michael R. Burch
Donald Trump is a good bad example of a rule:
the incompetent fail to recognize their own ineptitude. I used to see this
hypothesis proved when I shot pool for money in my younger days: it is easy to
take money from people who consider themselves to be great pool players, but
seldom if ever actually run out. The people who win consistently at handicapped
pool matches―where the better player spots the other player balls―are the ones
who can honestly gauge their own abilities and avoid giving games away. We also
see the hypothesis proved repeatedly on talent shows. Trump is like one of those
tone-deaf shower singers on American Idol who seldom if ever hit a note
correctly, then argue with the judges, insisting they'll soon be the next Elvis
or Aretha. How is that possible? . Donald Trump is so
tone-deaf to his racism, chauvinism, intolerance and lack of decency that he
can't "hear" how he really sounds. If he were a contestant on Because tone-deaf
singers can't hear their musical mistakes American Idol,
he would screech out the all-time worst version of whatever song he chose, than
insist that he was "better" (and "better looking") than Elvis, Sinatra, Usher,
et al. So why can't millions of Americans "hear" how off-key Trump is, in his
speeches, interviews and tweets? Probably because they, too, are tone-deaf to
racism, chauvinism and intolerance. Why didn't more Southerners object to
slavery prior to the Civil War? Because many white Southerners really believed
they were "superior" to people with darker skin. Why didn't more Germans object
to Hitler's racist rants about the Jews? Because many white Germans believed
they were also "superior" to people with darker skin. In effect, Trump is
preaching to the choir. When he promises to make American "great again," for
white supremacists that appears to be a kind of code for making America "white
again," or at least running it according to white conservative Christian
principles. Of course it's ironic because Jesus Christ, the apostles and Hebrew
prophets were flaming liberals. Trump is the antithesis of Jesus, so what does
that say about the faith of his supporters? Can anyone actually see Jesus
endorsing Trump ―a rich, arrogant bully who plans to ban and
deport millions of men, women and children whom Jesus would obviously have
The Best Donald Trump Joke of All Time
The best joke about the 2015-2016 presidential campaign may have been told by Adlai Stevenson during his 1956 run for the presidency. When a
woman called out, "Senator, you have the vote of every thinking person!" the
quick-witted Stevenson shot back, "That's not enough, madam, we need a
Donald Trump understands that he only needs a majority, not thinking people, to
support and vote for him. Independent thinkers won't vote for Trump because they
understand what he is saying and what his words really mean. A good example is
Bill O'Reilly, the ultra-conservative host of a Fox News "no-spin zone" called
The O'Reilly Factor. While I am not an O'Reilly fan, I have to give him
credit for pointing out to Trump why he doesn't make any sense on important
subjects like national security and the war on terror. Of course Trump just
ignores O'Reilly, or talks over and past him. But I doubt that O'Reilly will
endorse or vote for Trump, because he what Trump is saying and what his words
actually mean. Unfortunately, many American voters seem more than willing to
latch onto a few of Trump's vague promises (which would require magic wands to
be fufilled), while completely ignoring the things he says that make him sound
like another high-energy hysteric, Adolph Hitler. We don't need the ability to
read between the lines with men like Herr Hitler and Herr Trump. We only need
ears to hear and brains capable of understanding who they are, what they
stand for, and what they propose to do. When the Bible says, "He who has ears to
hear, let him hear!" it obviously means "He who has ears to hear, had better
listen, understand, think carefully, and act accordingly." When Germans heard
Hitler foaming at the mouth, they should have listened, thought carefully, and
voted for some party other than the Nazis. When Americans hear Republican
presidential candidates like Trump, Cruz and Carson foaming at the mouth, saying
insane things, they should do the same, or they risk suffering similar
consequences. These are some of the insane "ideas" and "policies" proposed by
Republican frontrunners for president:

Donald Trump keeps advising us to "GET SMART!" But he makes the stupidest
mistakes: birtherism, autism, Ebola, "the blacks," Bette, Rosie, Heidi, Paris in
Germany. That's Maxwell Smart territory.―Michael R. Burch

Magazine, Trump the Game, Tour de Trump ... and that's just the tip of the fool's-gold-plated
iceberg!―Michael R. Burch
Donald Trump Plays the Rape Card
Donald Trump is playing the Rape Card, in his attempt to flummox Americans into
electing him president. Trump recently compared Bill Clinton to Bill Cosby,
encouraging reporters to "go after" the former president. Since Cosby has been
accused of rape, Trump is obviously trying to make Bill Clinton's sex life an
issue on the campaign trail. There are several problems with this ridiculous
First, Hillary Clinton is not her husband, but a woman in her own right,
something Trump chooses to ignore. When Betty Ford had a drinking problem, that
did not mean her husband was ineligible to be president. The principle of
equality demands that Hillary Clinton should be judged by her own words and
actions, not her husband's, and especially not when he was acting without her
knowledge, and against her wishes and values.
Second, there is the problem of evidence and proof. Rape is a very serious
accusation, but Americans are presumed innocent until proven guilty. There seems
to be no physical evidence in the Broaddrick case, and there are not legions of
women coming forward with similar accounts, as has been the case with Cosby. So
the jury is still out, so to speak, and as far as we know Hillary Clinton is as
much in the dark about what really happened as everyone else. If only one woman
had accused Cosby of rape, and there was no evidence to support her claim, many
Americans would give him the benefit of the doubt, and it is far less likely
that he would have been arrested after so many years. But in any case, Hillary
Clinton has not been accused of rape herself, nor of being an accomplice. Her
husband was hiding his affairs from her and risked impeachment by lying to
maintain the pretense that he was faithful. His wife was put in a no-win
position, and she did what many wives do when their husbands cheat: she accepted
the fact that he is human and chose to remain married. Why not understand and
accept her very difficult decision?
Third and fourth, there are the problems of Trump's hypocrisy and chauvinism. He
claims to be a Christian and calls the Bible the greatest book ever written. But
the Bible is very clear on the subject of sexual relationships: a man is
commanded to have sex with only one woman, after marriage, and then to remain
faithful to her and not divorce her unless she is unfaithful to him. But Trump
has bragged publicly about the "beautiful pieces of ass" he can get whenever he
wants. He divorced two wives to marry younger, very beautiful women. He judges
women by their looks. He has a very high standard for Hillary Clinton, and a
much lower, easier standard for himself.
Fifth, Trump seems to be completely tone deaf to his own sexism and hypocrisy.
Pardon my French, but he thinks his shit doesn't stink. Hillary Clinton should
be judged by her words and deeds, because she is her own woman, not an extension
of her husband. But then Trump should be judged by his own words and deeds,
including the things he says and does in regard to women. And he is severely and
sorely lacking there, as he is in so many other areas.
Try, Try, Again! TRY
The motto of Donald Trump and the re-FLUB-licans seems to be: "If at first we
don't succeed, we'll do the same stupid things over and again over again!"
Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same things over and over, hoping
for different results. Here are some examples of sheer insanity. "ALL" means
that all the Republic presidential candidates seem to favor the insanity, or
that the insanity is part of the Republican party's national platform.
After Iraq was invaded on completely false premises—WMDs that did not exist and
couldn't be used if they did—reject the Iran peace deal and prepare to go to war
with Iran on the same false premises. [ALL]
Rather than blaming Republicans—Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al—for the illegal
invasion of Iraq, blame Barack Obama, who voted against the invasion! [ALL]
Also blame Barack Obama for the rise of ISIS, even though a Republican president
led the charge to invade Iraq, then ordered the withdrawal of American troops!
Deny the very clear evidence of global warming (rising sea levels) and "Drill
baby, drill!" and "Frack, frack, frack!" [ALL]
Ignore the fact that a pregnancy involves two lives, ignore the fact that
pregnant girls and women can suffer or die, and make it difficult or impossible
for them to get abortions with "fetal personhood" bills. [ALL]
Although carpet bombing is evil, a war crime, and doesn't work, carpet bomb
parts of the Middle East. [Trump & Cruz]
Carpet bomb with nukes to see if the sands will "glow" at night. [Cruz]
Make a huge issue out of Barack Obama's birth status, then completely ignore the
fact that Ted Cruz was born in Canada, the child of a Cuban-born father who
fought with Fidel Castro and the communists.
Even though experts say there is no connection between vaccinations and autism,
claim that there is, just as old wives once claimed that tomatoes were
"poisonous." [Trump, Palin, others]
Throw out the Constitution and freedom of religion by favoring Christianity over
other religions, even though most crimes in the US are committed by Christians.
[ALL, or MOST]
These are just a few quick examples. One could go on for hours, but I'm sure you
get the dismal picture!
Donald Trump is the "King of the Whoppers"
George Washington famously could not tell a lie. Donald Trump infamously cannot
seem to tell the truth, or even a reasonable approximate. For example:
Donald Trump insists that he saw "thousands and thousands" of American Muslims
celebrating the 9-11 attacks on TV. But where are the clips? The networks,
anchors and reporters all say that such large-scale demonstrations were not
televised. Why not? . The police, firemen,
governors, mayors and other officials confirm that large celebrations did not
occur anywhere in the United States. Did
every courageous American who responded on 9-11suddenly become a cowardly,
treasonous liar, or does Trump just make up racist s**t in order to get
gullible people to applaud and support him? It "never happened" according to
John Farmer Jr., who was New Jersey's attorney general on Sept. 11, 2001 and who
personally researched the reports of "celebrations" which proved to be as false
as the claims that "people were wearing suicide vests in Times Square; that
suspicious activity was occurring near critical power plants and refineries;
that as many as 20,000 people were dead or trapped inside the twenty stories or
so of burning ruins; that New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was missing; that
vigilante activity was beginning throughout the state, with vandalism of mosques
and synagogues; and, notoriously, that Muslims were dancing on the rooftops and
in the streets of Jersey City and Paterson." Farmer also served as senior
counsel to the 9/11 Commission. As "evidence" that his wild exaggeration is
"true," the Trumpster cited an alleged incident that was unattributed,
unverified and Because they did not occur
anywhere in the United States .
Trump also claims to have "seen" people leaping from the Twin Towers,
from more than four miles away, though a thick curtain of smoke! His office is
4.1 miles north of the Twin Towers, and even in clear conditions that is too far
away for human vision to make such distinctions. At that distance, Trump could
not have distinguished falling bodies from falling debris. Furthermore, Trump
claims to have "watched" the second plane hit: "I watched the second plane hit
... I saw the second plane hit the building." But that is something no one north
of the Towers could have witnessed, because the second plane hit its target from
the south and Trump could not have seen the collision when it happened.
Trump claims to have "predicted Osama bin Laden" in a book published the year
before 9-11; however, the book The America We Deserve mentions bin
Laden only once and predicts nothing about him, his plans or his future actions.
And Trump was quite obviously pooh-poohing the idea that bin Laden really was
"public enemy one." He wrote: "One day we're told that a shadowy figure with no
fixed address named Osama bin-Laden is public enemy number one, and U.S.
jetfighters lay waste to his camp in Afghanistan. He escapes back under some
rock, and a few news cycles later it's on to a new enemy and new crisis. Dealing
with many different countries at once may require many different strategies. But
there isn't any excuse for the haphazard nature of our foreign policy. We don't
have to reinvent the wheel for every new conflict." Once again, Trump has been
caught lying, with his pants on fire.
Here, however, is a prediction that Trump did make, not so very long ago, in
2008: "I know Hillary and I think she'd make a great president or
Trump claims that he got to know Mr. Putin "very well" when they appeared on
60 Minutes. Welcome to Sarah Palin la-la-land, because they were
interviewed separately and never met!
Trump said "there are no jobs" in June 2015, when official statistics reported
5.4 million job openings, the most in 15 years.
Trump insisted during a presidential debate that American wages are "too high"
and reaffirmed the statement in an interview. Within a month he said that wages
are "too low" and that we need smarter leaders!
Trump claimed that his campaign is 100% self-funded, but at the time more than
50% of his donations had come from outsiders.
Trump claims to love "the blacks" and "the Hispanics" and he insists that they
love him in return. Ha! Study the polls, Donald Denial.
Trump tweeted a neo-Nazi claim that 81% of white homicide victims are killed by blacks;
PolitiFact gave this lie a "pants on fire" rating. It is racist BS. The
actual FBI figure is 15%.
Trump claims that the Mexican government deliberately "sends the bad ones over"
to get rid of them; PolitiFact gave this lie a "pants on fire" rating.
Trump says Mexico doesn't have birthright citizenship. It does.
Trump claims that there are 30 to 34 million illegal immigrants in the U.S.;
PolitiFact gave this lie a "pants on fire" rating. More racist BS. The
actual figure is closer to 10 million.
Trump is a birther who claims that none of Barack Obama's classmates remember
him, but in reality many do. PolitiFact gave this lie a "pants on fire" rating.
More racist BS.
Trump claims the U.S. unemployment is as high as 42%; PolitiFact gave
this lie a "pants on fire" rating, saying Trump's figure is "way off the
Trump specializes in lies and innuendo. For instance, he claims to have "heard"
that President Obama is "thinking" about "signing an executive order" to "take
your guns away." More BS.
Trump also "heard" that President Obama plans to accept first 200,000 then
250,000 Syrian refugees. More lies. The actual number was 10,000.
Trump claims that his tax plan is "revenue neutral" but the pro-business Tax
Foundation estimates that it would reduce revenues by $10 trillion over 10
Trump claims that there is a link between vaccinations and autism, but scientist
disagree and the "link" has been called an "elaborate fraud." Welcome again to
Sarah Palin la-la-land.
The New York Times called Trump a serial liar: "In the
Republican field, Mr. Trump has distinguished himself as fastest to dive to the
bottom. If it's a lie too vile to utter aloud, count on Mr. Trump to say it,
The Washington Post said: "We are at the point in Donald Trump's
campaign when it's difficult to decide whether to focus on his unconstitutional
policy proposals or his blatant lies."
According to PolitiFact, nearly every "fact" Trump cites is a
half-truth or an outright lie. He is only "mostly" true around 5% of the time,
and lying in one form or another 95% of the time.
S**t Trump Said
Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest—and you all know it!
Please don't feel so stupid or insecure.
During the November 10 Republican debate, Trump emphatically stated that
American wages are " too high." [Ah, but what about your wages,
After the debate in an interview, Trump confirmed what he said: "It's a tough
position politically … Our taxes are too high, our wages are too high.
Everything is too high. We have to compete with other countries."
Then a month later Trump tweeted: "Wages in are country are too low,
good jobs are too few, and people have lost faith in our leaders. We need smart
and strong leadership now!"
[Is it "smart" to say that wages went from "too high" to "too low" in a month?
Is it "strong leadership" to waffle? Now Trump is "feeling the Bern" since
Bernie Sanders called him to the carpet.]
I've said if Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her. [You've said
it enough times to make it sound like a fetish, and we all understand what you
mean by "date," creep!]
My fingers are long and beautiful, as, it has been well documented, are various
other parts of my body. [How creepy can you get, but Ivanka will undoubtedly be
I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.
[This is like saying: "I have many fabulous friends who happen to be Jewish, but
I am an anti-Semite."]
The beauty of me is that I'm very rich.
The point is, you can never be too greedy. [Spoken like a true Gekko.]
I am a man of great achievement ... I always win ... It's
what I do. I beat people. I win. [Despite three marriages, four bankruptcies,
and many other failed businesses that even bankruptcy couldn't save?]
If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband what makes her think she can
satisfy America? [Is this odd little Mr. Wiggy Piggy the world's biggest oinker?]
The other candidates—they went in, they didn't know the air conditioning didn't
work. They sweated like dogs. How are they gonna beat ISIS? [Because the White
House has functional air conditioning?]
My Twitter has become so powerful that I can actually make my enemies tell the
truth. [But nothing, it seems, can make you tell the truth, or even an
I will be the greatest jobs president God ever created! [So says the man whose
most famous words to date are "You're fired!"]
On social media, I'm the one that's beloved! [Like the gout, when it finally
I have a great relationship with the Blacks! I've always had a great
relationship with the Blacks! [Not when you call them "the Blacks" like a
freakin' plantation overseer!]
Laziness is a trait in blacks. [Or, far more likely, a trait in your
Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting
my money are little short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. [Might as well
spew some anti-Semitism while you're hot!]
You know, it doesn't really matter what [the media] write as long as you've got
a young and beautiful piece of ass. [Is that what you call your wife and
daughters? How charming!]
"To the victor belonged the spoils ... what we should to is TAKE OVER ...
we pay our self [sic] $1.5 trillion or more ... we stay, and we keep the
oil ... So, in a nutshell, we go in, we take over the [world's] second largest
oil fields and we stay!" Donald the "Trump of Doom" said this to Bill O'Reilly
while outlining his plan to use the US military to control and "take" (steal)
Iraqi oil. Well, at least the "nutshell" part makes sense. Otherwise, this is
the original Dick Cheney plan that backfired in Iraq, creating ISIS!
