MEMBERS ONLY: Trump Is Mentally Disintegrating By The Day

Posted in Members Only, Politics

It was just over a week ago when we received further confirmation of Donald Trump’s total lack of mental fitness for the presidency. We didn’t necessarily require confirmation since we’ve all witnessed it firsthand, but there it was anyway in horrifyingly reliable detail.  First, we heard from Bob Woodward’s new book an entire series of harrowing stories detailing how Trump’s White House is “Crazytown,” including one particular story illustrating...

MEMBERS ONLY: The Social Media Outrage Machine Claims Another ‘Evildoer’

Posted in Members Only, Politics

Throughout the last 20 years of working on the internet, I’ve accumulated quite an archive of work. Mainly, we’re talking about blog entries, podcasts and a metric ton of cartoons. From 1999 to 2009, I ran an animation studio called “Camp Chaos,” specializing in online “Flash” cartoons including several shorts that gratefully enjoyed viral success. As you can imagine, however, many of those cartoons might be considered obnoxious, distasteful...

MEMBERS ONLY: Trump’s Supreme Guilt

Posted in Members Only, Politics

Donald Trump thinks you’re stupid. He thinks I’m stupid. He thinks even his most loyal supporters are stupid. Trump believes we’ll accept anything that gurgles out of his overly-articulated face-hole… because he said it, and if we don’t believe his words, we’re either his enemy or we’re part of the fake news conspiracy against him. While appearing at a joint press conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Trump, among...

This Madness Has To End

Posted in Members Only, Politics

Historians of the future are going to write volumes about what happened today in Helsinki, and there won’t be any kind words for Donald Trump in those thousands of pages. Rightfully so, given how the president announced in no uncertain terms his loyalty to Vladimir Putin over his loyalty to his own nation and the findings of his intelligence agencies regarding Russia’s ongoing attack against America, and he did...

MEMBERS ONLY: Trump And Putin Are Setting The Table For World War III

Posted in Members Only, Politics

Earlier this week, I published an article describing a new hashtag campaign in which Trumpers and a massive swarm of Russian trolls are attempting to undermine Democratic unity by suggesting Dems should walk away from the party, and just in time for easily the most consequential midterms we’ve ever witnessed. The “WalkAway” concept was allegedly started by a New York hairdresser named Brandon Straka who claims to have been...

MEMBERS ONLY: Trump Declares Victory Over Trump’s Internment Camp Policy

Posted in Members Only

You aren’t losing your mind. It’s important to remind ourselves occasionally that observable reality remains the truth, and that the centerpiece of Donald Trump’s political strategy is to make you believe it’s not him who’s lying and contradicting himself, it’s your lying eyes — it’s your fault. Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order ending his administration’s policy, enacted in April, of separating the children of migrants and asylum seekers...

MEMBERS ONLY: We’re Far Less Safe After Trump’s Non-Deal Deal With Kim Jong-un

Posted in Members Only, Politics

The reason great dealmakers don’t openly celebrate a deal, especially one that isn’t complete, is because it shows weakness to the other side. Donald Trump is therefore the weakest dealmaker in recent memory, and his alleged “deal” with Kim Jong-un isn’t a deal at all, made worse by Trump’s frenetic effort to characterize both the deal and Kim himself as the greatest things ever. By the way, the first...

MEMBERS ONLY: The Top Three Most Annoying Things About How Pundits Are Covering The Midterms

Posted in Members Only, Politics

With Tuesday’s primary elections in Iowa, Alabama, California and elsewhere fully in the can, we can declare this week to be the official launch of the 2018 midterm election season. While I’m not getting happy, I’m feeling similarly to many anti-Trumpers who are eagerly awaiting election day with a degree of anticipation that feels not unlike, I don’t know, almost falling backwards in a chair by why of Christmas...
