Even The Russians Are Laughing At Trump’s 4th of July Flop

Yes, Trump is lying about the crowd size, as you expected. Current crowd estimate is 3.4 million people. pic.twitter.com/Bh8B0ezV4X — Josh Marshall (@joshtpm) July 4, 2019 Okay, let’s be reasonable now: maybe there are 3.4 million people in this picture…IF you count all of their counterparts in alternate dimensions. Yeah, that sounds right. That’s where […]

Trump defends his ban on transgender troops with, as usual, nonsensical self-praise

Donald Trump continues to defend his bizarre and as-of-yet-still-unenforced "ban" against transgendered Americans serving in our military. As with everything else he has said while at his Golf Course White House, it consists of bluster and posturing...

Poor Brown Babies Get Cages, Rich Russian Babies? Citizenship

I’m really not sure where I was this last January when stories again hit the real papers (the first ones appeared in September of 2017) about the “birth tourism” wave hitting Miami (in particular) among Russian families of means. This story ran in “This Week” via NBC news in mid January of 2018: A growing […]

52,459 Americans Are Dead From COVID-19 In 81 Days — But Mark Meadows’ ‘Biggest...

Forget about Disinformation and Spin. Those are small towns on the map that we passed a while back. We are now entering Gaslight, a vast metropolis with headquarters at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The two newest arrivals in Gaslight are Mark Meadows and Kayleigh McEnany, who are double-teamed to bring you the finest in downright lies and propaganda. They have no choice. Donald Trump is on his last legs and melting down in daily bursts of hysteria, either on live television, or now that that’s over, Twitter. So grab your popcorn, sit back and take in the newest. Parody is another stop on our journey and we will be going beyond there, shortly. Politico: — THE ADMINISTRATION seems to have extensively participated in a piece in the NEW YORK POST about the president’s inability to carve out time for lunch because he works too hard. MARK MEADOWS, the president’s chief of staff, gave what appears to be his first on-the-record interview for the piece, where he said this: “I can tell you that the biggest concern I have as a new chief of staff is making sure he gets some time to get a quick bite to eat.” WAIT A SECOND. That’s his“biggest concern”? Pause for a moment and let that sink in. People are dying, as we speak. The death toll will get larger by nightfall. We have lost more Americans to COVID-19 then we lost in Vietnam. Only one percent of the American population has been tested. The economy is in free fall. The stock market is playing ping pong. But Mark Meadows’ words to us are that that Donald Trump doesn’t have time for a Big Mac? and that’s his “biggest concern?” THE FIRST GRAF OF THIS N.Y. POST piece is this: “President Trump’s schedule is so packed amid the coronavirus crisis that he sometimes skips lunch, his aides told The Post — refuting a report that the commander in chief spends his days obsessing over TV coverage and eating fries.” So, the White House was seeking to push back on this great KATIE ROGERS/ANNIE KARNI piece in the NYT, which was, in part, about how TRUMP is fixated on media coverage. BUT, YA KNOW, WHEN YOU participate in a piece aiming to knock down the narrative that you’re obsessed with media coverage, you’re showing you are … obsessed with media coverage! — THE PRESIDENT spent much of the weekend tweeting about his distaste for the national press corps. On Saturday and Sunday alone, TRUMP sent tweets about the Wall Street Journal editorial board; he said the media had it wrong — “corrupt & sick!” — when it said he was speaking to DEBORAH BIRX during a news conference; he explained his reasoning for not having news conferences anymore; he suggested Democrats and the media were in cahoots for quoting him saying the virus was a hoax; he called the Washington Post “slime balls”; he said reports that HHS Secretary ALEX AZAR was on the brink of losing his job were fake — twice; he tweeted three times about the NYT story he later pushed back on in the N.Y. Post; and he tweeted three times about Fox News. And, Noble/Nobel-gate. Trump reminds me of a would be social doyenne with an embarrassing family that I once knew. Her issue was not who was getting pregnant out of wedlock or who was embezzling from the firm, she didn’t care about that. She had one issue and one alone, and that was whether people found out about it. She would not have […]

Ivanka Advising Daddy To ‘Cut Bait’ On Kavanaugh

The Kavanaugh confirmation has turned out 180 degrees from the way it was expected to, going from slam dunk to problematic, to nightmare. Trump said it was “ridiculous” when asked recently if he would withdraw his nomination, but maybe that’s how it will in fact go down. Gabriel Sherman, Vanity Fair: Two sources told me […]
