Trump Suggested Dropping a Nuclear Bomb to Stop a Hurricane. Really.

Trump Suggested Dropping a Nuclear Bomb to Stop a Hurricane. Really.

I can’t believe I am typing this sentence: President Donald Trump apparently actually suggested dropping a nuclear bomb into a hurricane in order to stop the natural disaster. What’s worse is that he suggested this multiple times.

I don’t want you to think I’m exaggerating what Axios is reporting, so let’s go to the tape about an undated hurricane briefing:

During one hurricane briefing at the...

At G7, Trump Shows Astounding Lack of Clarity About U.S. Policy Goals

At G7, Trump Shows Astounding Lack of Clarity About U.S. Policy Goals

Media reports coming out of the G7 summit in Biarritz, France, are pretty striking in terms of the nearly constant shift of focus by President Donald Trump. Allied leaders and journalists alike seem to be having a hard time following along with Trump’s constant stream of contradictory thoughts and statements.

Unlike at past G7 meetings, the leaders of member countries at this weekend’s summit...

Former Republican Rep. Joe Walsh Will Try to Primary Trump

Joe Walsh, an ex-lawmaker from Illinois, a conservative radio talk show host, and a former Trump supporter announced on Sunday that he will challenge the president for the Republican Party’s 2020 nomination.

Everyone Is on Edge at the G7 As Trump Disrupts Global Trade

Everyone Is on Edge at the G7 As Trump Disrupts Global Trade

The “Great Disrupter” Donald Trump certainly is ensuring he gets the attention he so desperately craves as this weekend’s Group of 7 summit gets underway in southern France.

Trump on Friday launched into a tirade against China, announcing more tariffs on Chinese goods after China had announced similar, albeit less severe, measures on U.S. exports. Trump said he plans to raise tariffs from 25%...

The Big Orange Dummy Lies About His Messiah Claim

The Big Orange Dummy Lies About His Messiah Claim

Breaking news: Donald Trump doesn’t want to be the Chosen One anymore.

Trump must’ve taken some static from his base over that claim, or maybe an aide convinced the president of how stupid he looks. Whatever the reason, Trump is now trying to clean up a statement he made on Wednesday while discussing a trade war he launched against China.

“Somebody, excuse me, somebody had to do it,” he told...

Optimistic Senator Holding Out Hope That Trump Could Still Come Around on Passing New Gun Laws

Optimistic Senator Holding Out Hope That Trump Could Still Come Around on Passing New Gun Laws

Sen. Chris Murphy has been one of the strongest proponents of gun law reform in the Senate for years, working tirelessly to break through the brick wall of Republican obstinacy to make actual progress that could save lives. Donald Trump has been, well, the exact opposite of that.

But despite Trump apparently abandoning a push for universal background checks last week , Murphy’s not giving up....

Big Week for Jews

Big Week for Jews

I’m probably not the only Jewish person who looked around this week and thought, “damn, big week for Jews.”

Because boy what a week! Sometimes it seemed like all anyone could talk about was the Jews. Jew this Jew that Jew the other. Donald Trump and the Jews! Israel and the Jews! Israel and Donald Trump and the Jews! Israel and Trump and deranged Christian fundamentalists and the Jews! It...

Trump Brain Status: Moo Goo Gai Pan

Trump Brain Status: Moo Goo Gai Pan

Here’s a real stumper for you from Donald Trump. Who is our bigger “enemy”: Jerome Powell, the man Trump handpicked to run the Federal Reserve, or Chinese President Xi Jinping?

Trump posed his conundrum Friday morning on Twitter, of course. I’ve taken a screen shot of the president’s tweets because Trump also managed to misspell Powell’s name, and might subsequently delete his stupefying brain...

A$AP Rocky, Hero, Reportedly Ghosted on Thanking Trump for Lobbying to Get Him Out of Jail

Two of Trump’s top African American supporters told Yahoo News they’re upset with rapper A$AP Rocky and his team of managers and lawyers for apparently snubbing them, uhh, I mean, snubbing Trump , after the rapper was released from Swedish jail earlier this month.

Rocky was detained in Sweden for nearly a month after he and two of his associates were involved in a street fight on June 30....

Feels Fair That People Who Quit Trump’s Golf Club Will Probably Only See a Refund in the Afterlife

Feels Fair That People Who Quit Trump’s Golf Club Will Probably Only See a Refund in the Afterlife

Since Donald Trump was inaugurated, at least three golfers have quit their memberships at Trump National Doral in southern Florida. But according to the Miami Herald, those former members will probably never get their deposits back in this lifetime.

The newspaper estimated it will be 85 years before these members see their refunds. The Herald reported that in order to move up a spot on the...

Senator Eagerly Takes Credit for One of Trump's Most Harebrained Ideas Yet

Senator Eagerly Takes Credit for One of Trump's Most Harebrained Ideas Yet

President Donald Trump’s insane plan to buy Greenland —to say nothing of his subsequent temper tantrum after being told the autonomous island territory is extremely not for sale —is the sort of crazy scheme worthy of Dr. Evil’s father. So it stands to reason that Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, arguably the dumbest man in the U.S. Senate , would be eager to take credit for the idea.

Speaking...

A Perfect Distillation of Trump's Anti-Semitism in Just One Minute

A Perfect Distillation of Trump's Anti-Semitism in Just One Minute

It’s glancingly rare that anyone actually on the left gets booked on a cable news show like CNN’s The Lead, but when it happens, they generally shake shit up and leave the other talking heads agog. Today’s case: Mehdi Hasan, host for Al Jazeera and columnist for the Intercept, distilling the whole Trump/anti-Semitism/Israel flap into its simplest form in just one minute.

Here are some of the...

Anderson Cooper Calls Out Ivanka Trump's Silence on Her Dad's Anti-Semitism

Anderson Cooper Calls Out Ivanka Trump's Silence on Her Dad's Anti-Semitism

It’s like clockwork: first something bad happens—or worse, President Donald Trump does something bad himself —then a news bit about White House advisor and first daughter Ivanka Trump appears in the press, reaffirming her position as someone who tried to “do” something to vaguely influence her father.

CNN host Anderson Cooper, clearly fed up with the president’s days-long anti-Semitic...

Oh Good, White House Reportedly Considering Dystopian Plan to Try to Detect the Next Mass Shooter

Oh Good, White House Reportedly Considering Dystopian Plan to Try to Detect the Next Mass Shooter

As President Donald Trump pays lip service to mental health instead of actually addressing America’s abysmal gun laws , a new report indicates the administration has reacted positively to a proposal to create a new federal agency tasked with identifying signs of mental illness using artificial intelligence and a suite of smart home appliances to gather data.

The chillingly Big Brother-esque...

Trump Is Reportedly Being a Raging Anti-Semite Because He's Mad Jews Don't Like Him More

Trump Is Reportedly Being a Raging Anti-Semite Because He's Mad Jews Don't Like Him More

You may be wondering why President Trump has been getting so anti-Semitic lately . The short answer is that he is an anti-Semite . But a new Washington Post story lays out another reason: Trump is mad that Jews don’t love him enough.

Trump has been repeatedly calling Jews stupid and “disloyal” to Israel for voting Democratic. What he really means is that they are disloyal to him. From the...

This Unwatchable Trump 'Satire' Could be the Worst Thing The Simpsons Has Ever Done

I have a deep love for The Simpsons, despite its flaws , which is why it gives me no pleasure to say this: what the fuck is this piece of trash Trump video they just put out?

I’m not going to go into all of the stuff about “the show hasn’t been good for ages.” Duh, everybody knows it is a shadow of its former self. But this is no excuse for this toe-curlingly lame attempt at...

Trump Is Gaslighting the Hell Out of Jews

Just hours after glowingly referring to himself as the “King of Israel” and the “second coming of God ,” President Donald Trump doubled down on—and ramped up—his blatant anti-Semitism , making clear to the White House press corps that he thinks Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats are being disloyal to Israel.

When a reporter asked him directly if those remarks are anti-Semitic, the...

Trump Administration Moves to Detain Undocumented Children Indefinitely

The Trump administration on Wednesday announced a new rule that would allow the government detain migrant children indefinitely, in a move that would overturn a decades-old existing legal precedent.

Under the existing rule, known as the Flores Settlement Agreement, undocumented minors detained by the federal government are required to be released from custody after 20 days—a time limit the new...

Trump Admin Secretly Tells Big Donors: Yeah, a Recession Might Happen

For months now, the signs that the United States is about to go through another major recession have been popping up like clockwork .

President Donald Trump and his administration are naturally worried that such a disastrous economic event would tank his re-election chances , so in public, the line has been that fears of a recession are overblown or even a liberal media conspiracy . In...
