This Is the Picture of America on the Decline

President Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Group of 20 summit two weeks ago in an informal meeting that had been kept secret until Tuesday night. The meeting, which the White House insists was much ado about nothing but which reportedly lasted as long as an hour, came after an official one that had been made public. The informal meeting included just Trump, Putin and Putin’s interpreter, as The Washington Post’s Karen DeYoung and Philip Rucker report. Of course, true to form, Trump just couldn’t keep his fingers off his ‘Twitter:’ This is not a president,...

Those in Congress Who Think Healthcare Shouldn’t Be a ‘Right’ Have the ‘Cadillac’ of Health Plans

This past weekend, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that he was holding off a vote on the Better Care Act — the replacement for the Affordable Care Act, until Sen. John McCain recovered from his recent surgery. The surgery to remove a blood clot from near McCain’s eye took place on Friday. As of July 17, 2017, the vote has been put off indefinitely. Shortly after McConnell issued his statement, he and McCain received a flood of tweets calling on the U.S. Senate to ensure that the public has the same access to health care as McCain....

Chris Christie Just Did A ‘Double Baconater’ On the Beach

Chris Christie, governor of New Jersey, soon to be jobless, doubled down on his Beachgate scandal today. He actually had the nerve to say he had the right to be on a beach he closed down to the public because he wanted to have fun with his family. Wow, how about the rest of the families in New Jersey who couldn’t go to the beach on the Fourth of July because Chris Christie loves donuts more than he loves serving the people of his...

Trump Doesn’t Care About Healthcare, He Just Wants to Get Back at Obama for Making Fun of Him Once

It was a moment in time, the time that President Obama made fun of Donald Trump on a very public stage. Remember this? Yes, if I were Trump at that moment, I would have shrunk under a cloud of embarrassment. But remember, the only reason President Obama roasted Trump was that Trump challenged his U.S. birthright publicly, many, many times, just to score cheap points on what he knew was a lie. And now we have a vindictive, lazy president who just wants to use our White House as his personal revenge machine. Sorry ‘The Donald’ it’s not going...

BREAKING NEWS: Trumpcare Just Failed, Meaning Donald Trump Just Failed

Two more senators just came out against Trumpcare, add that to the two who did earlier and that means Trump’s ‘Cadillac’ of legislative vehicles has just pulled over on the side of the road, having run out of gas. Trump needs 50 votes to pass Trumpcare and now has no more than 48, possibly fewer. As the Russia scandal swirls around Trump, so does the impending doom of everything the Republicans who have supported him for passing also seems to be...

Trump Does Nothing But Sit on His Butt at the Women’s Open While His Healthcare Bill Fails

Donald Trump seems to think that the U.S. Government works they way his business worked. You, scream, yell, bully, do nothing to make something happen that represents actual work. All I can say is that any president who thinks he is a king is going to fail, but not just fail himself, but fail the people he foolishly thought would support him, and then we know time is up for us all. Just what did ‘The Donald’ do all weekend? The weekend he needed to garner the support of Congress to pass his replacement for Obamacare? He literally sat...

Irony of Ironies: Senate Healthcare Vote Stopped Because Senator McCain Needed Surgery

Not only is the Senate trying to take health insurance away from 22 million Americans so they can give a tax break to those making $1 million or more per year, it turns out that one of the senators to vote on the bill, John McCain, has stopped the vote on the bill because he needs time to recover from some minor surgery. I am not kidding. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Saturday that he will delay consideration of health care legislation in light of Sen. John McCain’s absence from recent surgery. McConnell, R-Ky., released a statement on...

Trump’s Defenders’ ‘Nothing Burger’ Is Really a Wendy’s Triple Baconater

A “nothing-burger” is how White House aides have dismissed the revelation that Trump has likely colluded with Russia in its attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election. But like so much that emanates from the Trump White House, it really is the biggest, fattest, most heart-attack-rendering ‘burger’ ever cooked up. It turns out e-mail trails can look just as bad for people named Trump as for people named Clinton. Donald Trump Jr.’s “I love it” e-mail chain salivating over a promise last June of “very high level and sensitive information” from an alleged Kremlin attorney incriminating Hillary Clinton —...
