Mike Pompeo Eats Saudi Arabia's Bullshit With a Smile on His Face Mike Pompeo Eats Saudi Arabia's Bullshit With a Smile on His Face

It’s been two weeks since Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance and presumed murder at the hands of Saudi operatives—ones whom, evidence strongly suggests, were working at the behest of Saudi Prince Mohammad bin Salman. But despite all signs pointing a targeted assassination meant to silence an…

Trump Is Already Absolving Himself of Responsibility For the Midterms Trump Is Already Absolving Himself of Responsibility For the Midterms

The midterm election is still weeks away, but for President Donald Trump, that’s plenty of time for his tuna casserole brain to kick into gear and immediately start distancing himself from what polling suggests could be a total catastrophe for congressional Republicans.

Donald Trump: 'Horseface' Donald Trump: 'Horseface'

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump reacted to a federal judge’s decision to toss Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against him by doing what he does best: gloating with a grotesquely misogynistic “nickname” on Twitter.

If only there were a trillion dollars just lying around that hadn’t been pissed away by...what’s that? Congressional Republicans? Yes, quite disturbing, indeed.

Day #2 of the Trump-Warren DNA Feud Is Already Terrible Day #2 of the Trump-Warren DNA Feud Is Already Terrible

To be perfectly honest, I’m still not sure why Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren thought it would be smart to release the results of a DNA test suggesting she had Native American ancestry, knowing full well that doing so would simply play into President Donald Trump’s bigoted charade of pretending to care about her…

Noted Geneticist Donald Trump Wants to 'Personally' Test Elizabeth Warren's DNA Noted Geneticist Donald Trump Wants to 'Personally' Test Elizabeth Warren's DNA

The dumbest feud in Washington got even dumber on Monday, with President Donald Trump adding another layer to his idiotic challenge that Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren prove her Native American ancestry before he donates $1 million to a charity of her choice.

It’s truly a mystery that a piss-warm Saturday Night Live sketch couldn’t convince a Republican majority not to confirm a Republican president’s Republican Supreme Court nominee. What a head scratcher.

Top House Republican's Family Reportedly Benefitted from Dubious Claim of Cherokee Ancestry Top House Republican's Family Reportedly Benefitted from Dubious Claim of Cherokee Ancestry

Familial grift and moral turpitude is nothing new for Republicans in the Trump era. Still, even by the abysmally low standards set by Congressman Duncan Hunter and First Lady of the Treasury Louise Linton, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s family may have taken the lead for cartoonish villainy.

Trump and Kanye's Oval Office Hang Was Fucking Wild Trump and Kanye's Oval Office Hang Was Fucking Wild

On Thursday afternoon, President Donald Trump welcomed Kanye West to the White House for the pair’s recently announced lunch and policy chat, and if that sentence makes you feel like you’re tripping balls, it’s nothing compared to how surreal the actual meeting was.

The White House Is Freaking Out That Fox News Won't Air Trump Rallies Live Anymore The White House Is Freaking Out That Fox News Won't Air Trump Rallies Live Anymore

If there’s one thing the Trump administration has been able to count on for these past two years, it’s that the goblins at Fox News will reliably provide as much free media for the president as possible, while breathlessly cheerleading his every deranged policy decision and logorrheic spasm. But it seems that even Fox…

Donald Trump Calls Into Fox & Friends to Ramble Incoherently Donald Trump Calls Into Fox & Friends to Ramble Incoherently

Whenever President Donald Trump calls into his favorite morning TV show, Fox & Friends, one of two things always happens: Either he offers his usual, low-grade, self-promoting bluster, or he goes completely and irrevocably off the rails in a string of unhinged, and unrelated mini-rants about whatever half-formed…

Hurricane Michael slammed into the Florida panhandle this afternoon, beginning an assault on the Southeast U.S. that will last through the next few days. But instead of monitoring the potentially catastrophic situation on the coast, President Donald Trump will most likely be spending his Wednesday evening shouting…

Republican Lawmaker Literally Yanks Mic Away From His Female Opponent During Debate Republican Lawmaker Literally Yanks Mic Away From His Female Opponent During Debate

As we approach the November midterms, it’s worth remembering that asshole men abound everywhere, from the White House to the Senate to the Supreme Court all the way on down to Minnesota’s House District 25a, where three-term incumbent Republican Duane Quam and his Democratic challenger Jamie Mahlberg debated on Monday…

Reporter Is Shocked That College Students Aren't Into Him Yelling at Them About Voting Reporter Is Shocked That College Students Aren't Into Him Yelling at Them About Voting

I’m not sure why anyone would think it’s a good idea to send a reporter to accost a bunch of disinterested college kids about the upcoming midterm elections, but that’s exactly what the Today Show did today.
