I have no jokes today. Today, I feel scared. Donald Trump is doubling down on his accusations against former President Obama, and is asking Congress to investigate Obama’s wiretapping while they also investigate Trump’s ties to Russia. Sean Spicer released the following statement:  “Reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election […]

I am going to start running out of dramatic one-liners to kick off these articles. So in lieu of the aforementioned one-liner, here’s a series of tweets from 45 for you to take a look at: Terrible!

And we’re back. Things continue to fall apart. The drama! It’s unbelievable. (I am intentionally quoting Trump there.) Before we get to Russia, I want to talk about Pence’s little “email” problem.

I also just need an outlet for all the pent-up angst I feel about this entire […]

Back to politics and my Trump updates! George W. Bush had a really interesting interview this morning, in which he finally denounced Trump publicly. Normally, former Presidents do not openly criticize his (in this case, “his” only, but someday, I hope I can use “her”) predecessor, mostly to make sure there is a peaceful transfer […]

God rests on Sunday and so does Trump, but apparently not the God of Flubs because the Oscars really messed up nicely. While Trump rested, the Oscars had the flub of the century on Sunday. I didn’t actually watch it myself, because I consider myself a responsible adult who tries to be in bed by […]
