Trump Lives Somewhere Over the Rainbow

It is time to realize that Donald Trump is very high over the reality spectrum. The man clearly lives on another planet, or at least well above the rainbow of earth. Trump thinks he is above the law and can grab any woman he wants because he is famous. That, alone, should put him into exile, yet alone throw him out of the Oval...

It’s Time to Dump Trump the Chump

Enough with the subtleties here, Donald Trump is a danger to the safety of every American citizen. He lies, he cheats, he steals and he even grabs women’s private parts because he feels his fame makes that OK. But the real problem here is that President Trump is unwittingly destroying the very thing that allows us all, as free Americans, to live the good life, the U.S....

Donald Trump Used To Love ‘Clicks,’ But Not Any More

SNL had it right when they spoofed Kellyanne Conway’s desire for ‘clicks,’ which, of course, was the expression of President Trumps’s desire for clicks. Their sketch was right on: Trump said this as reported by The New York Times about ‘clicks:’ During a small working lunch at the White House last month, the question of job security in President Trump’s tumultuous White House came up, and one of the attendees wondered whether press secretary Sean Spicer might be the first to go. The president’s response was swift and unequivocal. “I’m not firing Sean Spicer,” he said, according to someone...

Trump’s Tower of Power is About to Collapse

Donald Trump is the greediest person America has ever elected as its president. Perhaps that is perfect for America, as we have become a country of selfish, lazy people who want to take more than they could ever give back. JFK was prescient when he told us all not to ask what our country can do for us, but rather, what we can do for those around us. That statement got huge news, but now it seems to be a message that America must hear again, and must adhere to. But this man has used the presidency to make...

Trump Is the Bernie Madoff of American Politics

In June 2009, disgraced financier Bernie Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison, after running a massive Ponzi scheme that robbed thousands of investors of billions of dollars. It’s a cautionary tale of greed and deception that still resonates eight years later, particularly in today’s political climate, says Robert De Niro, who plays him in HBO’s The Wizard of Lies (Saturday, 8 ET/PT). “What amazes me is that (Donald Trump is) such a bad con artist,” he says. “Bernie Madoff was a guy who was low-key. I make no excuse for him: what he did was horrible and...

No More Celebrities for President, Time for Someone Who Has Studied for the Job

Dwayne Johnson hosted SNL for the fifth time Saturday and announced a presidential run with none other than Tom Hanks. Were they kidding? Maybe. Let’s hope so. During his monologue, he was joined onstage by Alec Baldwin, who has been parodying President Donald Trump this season, The actor, who has hosted SNL many times himself, welcomed The Rock into the five-timers club. “A lot of people have been telling me lately that I should run for President of the United States,” Johnson said. “And I gotta tell you, it’s very flattering but tonight, I wanna put this for rest...

Trump’s World Leader Tour Becomes Simply a ‘Grip and Grin’ Event

With the revelation that Russia gets news about our government sooner sometimes than we do, there is no question the world is watching the Trump administration fall apart in record time. Trump likely believes that as he travels the world, he can leave his troubles behind him and get some great ‘grip and grin’ photo opportunities that will make him look ‘presidential.’ The thing is, he is not presidential and very well could be impeached soon. World leaders know very well how fragile Trump’s hold on power is right now, and unless they can get a deal out of...

Selfish and Lazy Behavior Puts America on the Decline

Whether it is the trend toward self-indulgent behavior, the laziness that allows people to believe ‘fake news,’ the lack of attention to education to remind Americans how and why we established the U.S. Constitution–all of which I would argue are the reasons–there is no question we are on a steep decline. What President Reagan famously called ‘the shining city on a hill‘ is quickly becoming a country distrusted around the world, one that has no respect for the truth, and one that lost its promise to the poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Whether Donald Trump–who embodies all...
