Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Bill Maher, always an outspoken critic of Donald Trump, could only ask WTF after the first week of “the war on facts.” Appearing on his HBO show, Maher kept rubbing his eyes during his monologue, wondering “if Abilify is right for me,” and fretting about the craziness of the new president

It is disturbing to Maher that Trump sees “multitudes that don’t exist,” suggesting that his obsession with the crowd sizes at his inauguration versus Barack Obama’s may reflect an even deeper (and darker) insecurity. The mad mythologizing by White House press secretary, with its deployment of “alternative facts,” evoked a comparison between the Trump administration and a noxious cult:  “The difference between Scientology and Donald Trump is that Scientology has better celebrities.”

But the Women’s March and sister marches across the world encourage Maher — at last, he says, “we have our own Tea Party — except with more teeth and no spelling errors on the posters.”

Yes, Maher’s brand of humor is especially suited to this dark time.

    Yup with DT it’s a whole new level of crazy ????

      The first thing he needs to do is get rid of Bannon, whose ONLY goal is to create chaos in our government (and he’s doing a great job so far), and the second thing he needs to do is to step down! He has NO valid qualifications for the job, and he’s taking this country in a very dangerous direction! Someone needs to stop him before it is too late! The scariest part is that there’s no one in government that can or will do that! They are all afraid of what he will do to them if they dare to come out against him!

      • Dan S says:

        In today’s NYT they even suggested invoking the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution. Article 4 says that if the President is not doing their job and acting like a tyrant they can be removed by Congress and VP. Ok maybe I paraphrased that bit about the tyrant but he’s clearly out of control and needs to go now. In just over a week look at the damage he’s done. Now imagine 4 years of this chaotic BS ????

        • dpaano says:

          Unfortunately, I don’t think Congress will go that route….I can’t see either Ryan OR Pence doing anything to get 45 out of office!!! It’s pretty sad, and I agree, imagining the next 4 years of this is NOT pretty. It’s actually VERY unsettling to me.
          As I said, I think his latest ban on Muslims is going to cause major terrorist attacks in the U.S. This is why ISIS was so excited about 45’s being elected…..they KNEW that he would give them enough propaganda to help their recruitment of American Muslim young men and women! Unfortunately, these jihadists will bomb states that are against 45’s order in lieu of states where his followers reside (the Rust Belt)! All in all, people are going to die and the U.S. is now less safe than it was previously to 45’s election!

          • jointerjohn says:

            I share your concern for the coming four years, but perhaps that is what it will take for the overwhelming majority of Americans who are fundamentally sane to turn off the “reality” TV and celebrity gossip garbage and start caring enough to organize, speak up and vote. President Trump and the rest of the psychotic right-wing are products of a lazy opposition. I had hoped it wouldn’t have to get this bad for that to happen, I’ve been waiting for it since Reagan started us down this regressive and plutocratic path.

          • dpaano says:

            I agree….the most we can hope for is that the majority (the ones that voted for Hillary) will unite in 2018 and get rid of some of the Repubs in Congress that are up for re-election or who will be retiring! It would be a major slap in the face to 45 to lose the majority in the Congress, and maybe that’s what needs to be done. But, we need to start organizing and getting candidates chosen and get the DNC working on getting the voters energized. If we can energize them as much as the Women’s March did….we can do anything!

          • Budjob says:

            Sadly,I don’t think that there is going to be any elections in 2018. I would like to be optimistic about that happening,however the Fascist gang is a very deceptive dangerous breed of rat!

          • dpaano says:

            Again, ever the pessimist. 45 and his gang of idiots can’t stop the midterm elections. They may think they can guarantee the outcome, but if we don’t let them, then they can’t stop them! Our job in the next 2 years is to get the Democratic party on point, get voters registered (even ones who were not able to register before), and GET OUT AND VOTE!! If we just sit on our butts and moan and whine…nothing will get done!

          • Budjob says:

            I have NEVER missed ANY election,primary or general in all my years of voting,and barring my death,don’t plan on missing any in the future!

          • dpaano says:

            Good!!! We think alike. I did get in touch with the DNC today and told them to get on the ball. We need to find more democrats that can talk to our younger voters and millennials….if this means getting rid of the old folks, we may have to do that! I really like Julian Castro or his brother (both from Texas….I think one of them spoke at Clinton’s acceptance celebration). Both of them are young, great speakers, can relate to the Democrats of today, and would be able to get these people out to vote for other democrats!!! Hey, didn’t hurt to let the DNC know where my brain is at, right? Maybe more of us have to get in touch with them and tell them to get on the ball!!! They can’t sit on their butts for the next couple of years doing nothing…..we have midterms coming up, and if we want to retake the Senate, the House, or the Congress, we have to start NOW!!!
            Okay, done venting now…..have a great week-end! Let’s hope 45 doesn’t go any further off the deep end over the week-end and we survive it!

          • Budjob says:

            The only other alternative to this mess,is a violent upheaval.That scenario is highly unlikely,given the fact,it would take a percentage of our military might to be successful! The United States of America appears doomed folks!

          • dpaano says:

            Stop being such a pessimist. We are NOT doomed, and if we think we’re doomed, then nothing will happen! We can protest, we can write letters to our Congressmen and women, we can vote! If everyone thought the way you did, nothing would get accomplished.

          • Budjob says:

            I am not a pessimist at all.I am a realist.You know the analogy of an individual that views a half glass of water as half full,is an optimist,while an individual that views the same glass as half empty,are a pessismist! Being a realist,I realize,that if I stick around long enough,I’m the one that is going to have to wash that glass! I am already locked and loaded,and waiting for the day,and I think you know what I am referring to!

          • dpaano says:

            Yes, I do. I haven’t heard that one before about being a “realist.” I guess I’m kinda a realist too, but I try to think positively as much as possible. After all, it’s my one way to keep me sane!!!

          • Budjob says:

            People say I’m crazy,but,it keeps me from going insane!

      C’mon now. Some of us aren’t half bad.
