Trumpers Outraged by Robert De Niro — But Cheered When Ted Nugent Did Worse

There’s so much outrage in Trump-dom today! (What else is new?!) What minor affront set off these snowflakes this time? Well, they learned that Robert De Niro had dared to use curse words to criticize their beloved President Donald Trump. While no video has been released yet of last night’s tirade, the two-time Oscar winning took to the dais at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala and allegedly unleashed a profanity laced critique of Trump — and, of course, that was too much for the delicate sensibilities of Trumpers. So what did De Niro say? Well the iconic actor declared, “This fucking idiot is the president. It’s The Emperor’s New Clothes – the guy is a fucking fool.” But De Niro was not done. He continued, “Our government today, with the propping of the baby-in-chief ― the jerkoff-in-chief, I call him ― has put the press Continue reading "Trumpers Outraged by Robert De Niro — But Cheered When Ted Nugent Did Worse"

Trump Praises AT&T Bonuses…But Silent About AT&T’s Recent Layoffs

President Donald Trump loves to take credit for things he hasn’t actually done like repealing the Affordable Care Act. (Only Trump would be gleeful at the prospect of taking health insurance from millions of Americans in need.)  That’s why it came as no surprise when Trump took credit for AT&T’s recent announcement that it was awarding bonuses of $1,000 to 200,000 employees. Trump, with the national media watching, bragged last week: “This just came out. … AT&T plans to increase U.S. capital spending $1 billion and provide $1,000 special bonus to more than 200,000 U.S. employees, and that’s because of what we did.” Trump then added, “That’s pretty good. That’s pretty good.” Of course, these bonuses were actually being negotiated with union representatives well before the GOP tax plan.  Although it does appear that the number of AT&T employees who may receive a Continue reading "Trump Praises AT&T Bonuses…But Silent About AT&T’s Recent Layoffs"

Donald Trump Jr. Should Be Required to Testify in Public

If Donald Trump, Jr. truly had nothing to hide he would have demanded that his testimony yesterday before the GOP controlled House Intelligence Committee be in public so we can all see it. What a contrast to Hillary Clinton who essentially demanded that her 11-hour marathon grilling over Benghazi by the GOP be out in the open. In fact, as The Atlantic put it back in 2015 at the time of the hearing, Hillary “practically begged the Republican chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, to allow her to testify in public.” But not Don, Jr.! He was all too happy to accept the special treatment being offered to him by Republicans to testify outside of the view of the American public.  Keep in mind this is the second time the GOP members of Congress have spoken to Don Jr. Continue reading "Donald Trump Jr. Should Be Required to Testify in Public"

Trump’s Despicable Double Standard on Sexual Misconduct

President Donald Trump is a sexual predator. Period. There really is no disputing that. First off, Trump told us as much in the infamous Access Hollywood tape where he bragged about grabbing women’s genitals and kissing women without their consent: “I just start kissing them…I don’t even wait.”  As a lawyer, that is the very definition of sexual assault. And after that tape was released, 16 women came forward detailing Trump’s sexual misconduct directed against each of them. For example, journalist Natasha Stoynoff shared that in 2005 Trump pushed her up against a wall at Mar-a- Lago and shoved his tongue down her throat. And Summer Zervos, who is currently suing Trump, told us that Trump in 2007 kissed her without her consent touched her breasts and “pressed his genitals up against her.” For those who want to see more details, a new video was released Continue reading "Trump’s Despicable Double Standard on Sexual Misconduct"

Republicans Only Believe Women Who Make Accusations Against Democrats

Why would Roy Moore drop out?! He heard Donald Trump last October openly brag about sexually assaulting women in the Access Hollywood tape. And after that, 16 women came forward to publicly state that Trump had sexually assaulted them. Trump responded by publicly shaming these women, calling them “liars” at an October 2016 campaign rally: “Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign.” What happened next? Well after the pro forma denunciations by certain Republicans, the GOP base rallied around Trump. In fact, we saw a woman attend a Trump rally proudly wearing a shirt that read: “Trump can grab my” with an arrow down to her genitals. And come election Day, Trump won receiving the support of 81 percent of white Evangelical voters and 53 percent of white women. In fact, Trump did better among white evangelicals than George W. Bush who was Continue reading "Republicans Only Believe Women Who Make Accusations Against Democrats"

President Trump is Making the Democratic Party Great Again!

President Donald Trump has the lowest approval rating of any president at this point in his first term, hasn’t built his wall that Mexico was going to pay for, failed at repealing Obamacare, hasn’t negotiated amazing trade deals and has zero major legislative achievements. But we have to give credit where credit is due: Trump is making the Democratic Party great again! Maybe when Trump declared during the campaign “we are going to win so much that you may even get tired of winning” he was referring to the Democrats. But if he was, we aren’t even close to tired of winning. In fact, last night simply wet our appetite for next year’s midterm elections. The biggest race last night was Virginia. Let’s be clear Trump, Steve Bannon and the GOP went all in there – and not just with their money but with Trump’s bigoted playbook. Bannon bragged this Continue reading "President Trump is Making the Democratic Party Great Again!"
