Trump Impeachment Trial, Day 11: Only the Winning Team Cares About the Day After the Super Bowl

Trump Impeachment Trial, Day 11: Only the Winning Team Cares About the Day After the Super Bowl

The day after Super Bowl LIV is just a reliving of all the things that happened the night before. The winning team talks about their awesomeness and what they are going to do next. The losing team sulks about what they should’ve done. No one actively watches this, but those on the winning side are more inclined to leave the channel on just to take another victory lap.

So what now?

We lost. By...

Trump’s Impeachment Trial, Day 10: How the Senate Became the WWE

Trump’s Impeachment Trial, Day 10: How the Senate Became the WWE

My parents were going through a divorce when I was 10. They were still trying to learn how to co-parent when my mother got me tickets to go to a WWE (it was the WWF back then) live performance on the condition that my dad would have to take me. My father was annoyed. My mother hadn’t checked with him before purchasing the tickets and taking me meant that he was going to have to move his...

Trump’s Impeachment Trial, Day 8: Never Have I Ever…

Trump’s Impeachment Trial, Day 8: Never Have I Ever…

I tried to watch it. But the sudden death of Kobe Bryant and his beautiful daughter Gianna mixed with Trump attorney Jay Sekulow’s punchable face? I just wasn’t in the best mental space to hear more lies on top of mistruths on top of misdirections.

But I know that Trump’s legal team tried to discredit former national security adviser John Bolton and former Vice President Joe Biden because...

Trump’s Defense Lawyers Pick Up Where They Left Off, and By ‘Pick Up’ I Mean They Just Continue Lying

Trump’s Defense Lawyers Pick Up Where They Left Off, and By ‘Pick Up’ I Mean They Just Continue Lying

On Monday, President Trump’s loose group of arthritic knees and questionable morals banded together to expand on their brief opening statements from Saturday to make their case as to why the president of the United States isn’t the real Joanne the Scammer.

A live look at President Trump promising that his team isn’t going to cheat:

The plan is for Trump’s fufu team of lawyers to go in-depth as...

Impeachment Trial, Day 3: How Do You Get Liars to Care About the Truth?

So I know you didn’t watch Day 3 of the Trump Impeachment trial so allow me to recap all the bits you missed.

Democrats continued to make their case, which was totally riveting btw, and then Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) pulled a sword and began hacking away at the podium. Notorious R.E.P. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) tackled Schiff and the two began rolling around on the floor. It was at this...

Day 2: Impeachment Boogaloo

Day 2: Impeachment Boogaloo

Have you ever been to a rave? I have and it’s exactly what you’d expect: loud music, lots of footwork, glow sticks and drugs. But what’s most impressive about a rave is how long they are and how sweaty everyone gets because the whole room gets hot because of all the non-stop dancing.

The second day of the Donald J. Trump’s impeachment trial is like a rave minus the colorful clothes, glow...

The Impeachment of Donald J. Trump, Part 1: Pre-Fight Fuss Fight

The Senate impeachment trial of Russian Vice President Donald J. Trump began around 1 p.m. Tuesday, and here’s what’s happened and what we expect to happen on the first day.

Senators, House Managers—aka the “Hit Squad”—and the White House counsel were all present and ready to go. Chief Justice Roberts brought the trial to session, saying something like, “Let’s get ready to fake rumble!” Fine,...

Resist! Maxine Waters Stayed True to Her Purpose of Impeaching the Orange Menace

Resist! Maxine Waters Stayed True to Her Purpose of Impeaching the Orange Menace

On this fifth day of Kwanzaa, we celebrate Nia, which means purpose, and also surges in popularity as a name every time Nia Long releases a film. “Imani” is the only other principle that even comes close, according to research from the Love Jones Institute for Boyz in the Hood.

My aunt Kujchagulia Ujima Jenkins disagrees. But I digress.

So yes, Nia is a word you have most likely heard, and the...

Trump Spends Morning Rage-Tweeting About Impeachment; Still Not Worried Though

Trump Spends Morning Rage-Tweeting About Impeachment; Still Not Worried Though

The morning after Christmas is typically a nice one for me. I spent mine playing some of the games I copped on Xbox over Christmas, eating leftovers and chilling with my dog. It was a pleasant morning, all things considered. Apparently, the same cannot be said for the President who spent his morning being pissed the hell off on the internet.

NBC News details how Trump spent Christmas evening...

5 Reasons the Impeachment Hearings Were Must-See TV

5 Reasons the Impeachment Hearings Were Must-See TV

I will admit that my job requires me to watch all of the congressional hearings and all of the pundits rattling off reasons why the world and the economy aren’t going to collapse. I’m literally paid to watch members of Congress fumble over themselves to support one of the most corrupt presidencies America has ever seen.

Despite being paid to watch these programs, what The Root doesn’t know is...

Trump Won’t Participate in This Week’s House Judiciary Impeachment Hearing Because He Did That Shit

Trump Won’t Participate in This Week’s House Judiciary Impeachment Hearing Because He Did That Shit

Look, it’s time that we stop hemming and hawing around what we know to be the truth: Trump tied Ukrainian aid to dirt on possible Democratic 2020 rival Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. That happened.

Full stop.

What’s happened since then has been a game of let’s see if the GOP can make a mockery of the truth by continuously throwing shit at it until they stink up the entire process. Basically,...

Here Is the Full Text of Donald Trump's Sharpie Lies for the Press

You do not know anyone as stupid as Donald Trump.

Even if you know a baboon with a head injury or have an uncle who dropped out of school in the first semester of kindergarten to pursue a career in the lucrative glue-eating sector, I can guarantee that they are not as rockheadedly dumb as America’s barren-brained embarrassment of a president.

On Wednesday, supplemental visual and written...

Gordon Sondland: Oh Yeah! I Totally Forgot to Tell Y'all About That Quid Pro Quo

Gordon Sondland: Oh Yeah! I Totally Forgot to Tell Y'all About That Quid Pro Quo

After saying there wasn’t a quid pro quo—and then maybe there was—U.S. Ambassador to Not Ukraine finally remembered that he, along with President Donald Trump, Substitute Fixer Rudy Giuliani and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, conditioned U.S. aid and support to Ukraine on their willingness to interfere in the 2020 presidential election.

“Quid pro quo?” said the highest bidder to the European...

As Week 2 of Public Impeachment Hearings Begin, President Trump Says He’ll Consider Testifying in Writing...But Nobody Believes That Lie

With round two of the public impeachment hearings set to begin this week, President Trump said in a Monday morning tweet that he would consider testifying—in writing—for the inquiry as to whether he abused his power when he witheld military aid to Ukraine unless they launched an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

Trump Got Exposed During the First Day of Impeachment Hearings and His Tax Returns Suffered a Similar Fate

If you thought your Wednesday was rough, at least it wasn’t as bad as Donald Trump’s.

While the rest of us trudged through another humpday of ungrateful spouses and crabby co-workers, the Washington Post reports that a U.S. appeals court ruled that Congress can gain access to eight years of Trump’s tax returns:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit let stand an earlier...

It’s About to Get Really Real: House to Take Formal Vote Thursday on Rules of Impeachment

House Democrats want to make one thing very clear to Donald Trump: The impeachment inquiry into his tenure in the Oval Office is the real deal.

And, so, on Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House will take a vote “to formalize procedures” as to the rules when it comes to the probe, according to the Washington Post.
