#EndorseThis: Why Is Trump Always Feuding With Gold Star Families?

Donald Trump has been insulting Gold Star families — those whose loved ones have made the ultimate sacrifice in uniform — since 2016 , when he began a feud with the parents of Capt. Humayun Khan. The president’s lack of compassion for their pain, now demonstrated again in the case of Sgt. LaDavid Johnson, is […]

SNL Cold Open: Baldwin Is Back, Ripping Eminem, Corker And Tillerson

Alec Baldwin returns as Donald Trump, appearing at a rally in “Harass-burg” to pour bile on Senator Bob Corker (“a midget”), Rex Tillerson (“a dummy”) and rapper Eminem, who “rapped some very nasty things about me, and very soon I’m going to release a response rap on the White Entertainment Network, HGT.”  He threatens to […]

Sexual Harassment? Let’s Not Forget The Alpha Creep

The accumulating allegations of assault and harassment raised against Harvey Weinstein in recent days are deeply disturbing, and may well result in criminal prosecution of the Hollywood producer. Beyond Weinstein’s own fate, this latest episode in the very old history of women’s mistreatment by unscrupulous men seems likely to expose still more perpetrators, in occupations […]

#EndorseThis: In Fulminating Rhymes, Eminem Takes Down Trump

Whatever you may think of rapper Eminem, his sustained and logical rhyming attack on Donald Trump — and the racism represented by the president — is a stunning tour de force. It’s trending #1 on Youtube with over 19 million views. And if you happen to be among his fans, the real Slim Shady has […]

#EndorseThis: Is Trump A F***king Moron? Colbert Has His IQ Score

Donald Trump’s explosive feud with his own Secretary of State — who reportedly called him a fucking moron — is a disaster for diplomacy, but a cornucopia for late-night comedians. Trump responded to Rex Tillerson’s alleged insult with a challenge. “I think it’s fake news,” said the president, “but if he did [call Trump a […]

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Looks Hard At Trump, Pence, And Corker Too

Of all the unintentionally hilarious moments in Mike Huckabee’s groveling interview with Donald Trump (his daughter Sarah’s boss) Seth Meyers picks up what may be the funniest. Stumbling in his diction as always, the president claims he never heard anyone use the word “fake” before he did — an assertion Seth finds impossible to believe […]

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Tracks ‘Moron’ To Puerto Rico And Beyond

Of all the embarrassing moments during Trump’s trip to Puerto Rico, Seth Meyers thinks the most revealing was his conversation with a woman distributing water purification tablets at a church. Not only did the president sound rudely insensitive to the desperation of those who must drink purified water — but he seemed to suspect that […]

#EndorseThis: Colbert On Trump’s Puerto Rico Visit — The “Second Disaster”

What happens when an impoverished, storm-wracked island is struck by a black hole of narcissistic ego? The people of Puerto Rico found out during Trump’s presidential visit on Tuesday — described aptly by Stephen Colbert as “a second disaster.” Compassion Donnie-style was on full display, from stupefying condescension (what Colbert calls “Trump-splaining”), inappropriate boasting (“we […]

No, Mr. President — The Puerto Rico Crisis Is Not About You

When the going gets tough, the tough go golfing. Doubtless in years to come, every home in Puerto Rico will proudly display replicas of the golfing trophy President Trump dedicated to the brave citizens of the beleaguered island to memorialize Hurricane Maria. Unless I miss my guess, donaldjtrump.com will soon be peddling them along with […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Scorches Politicians Who ‘Let NRA Run This Country’

Jimmy Kimmel is emotionally wrenched by the horrible massacre in Las Vegas, where he grew up. He’s angry, too. The conscientious comedian is tired of hearing the media refrain that we can do nothing to prevent gun violence. Because, as he says, “of course there’s something we can do about it.” “I don’t know why […]

#EndorseThis: On Puerto Rico, John Oliver Roasts Trump’s Bigotry, Falsehoods and Failure

As Trump continues to astonish and exasperate the world with his ugly tweets about Puerto Rico, John Oliver calls out his racist blather, cruel insensitivity, blinding egomania, and sheer brass. We see the president praising his own piss-poor performance in the post-hurricane crisis and slagging those lazy Puerto Ricans for expecting help after an unprecedented […]

SNL: Alec Baldwin Reveals Our Clown President’s Crisis Management Plan

In yet another moment of crisis, Alec Baldwin returns to Saturday Night Live as the president whose incompetence and laziness — ordinarily a sort of blessing — has become a terrible curse on the suffering people of Puerto Rico. So learns San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz (Melissa Villaseñor) when she places a desperate call […]

#EndorseThis: Trump Boasts About ‘Amazing Job’ In Puerto Rico

If there is any single incident that has conclusively proved Trump’s unfitness to be president, it is his failure to provide timely aid and comfort to the millions of American citizens suffering in devastated Puerto Rico. That is the most fundamental responsibility of his office. Instead, as usual, Trump is preening and boasting rather than […]

#EndorseThis: Dallas Sportscaster Dale Hansen Delivers Bracing Slap To Trump

Here in Trump’s America, where bigotry and stupidity rage unchecked, we’re all too accustomed to judging our fellow citizens by their tribal affiliation, as we’ve seen again in the controversy over athletes “taking a knee” during the national anthem. So you might expect Dale Hansen, a 69 year-old white Dallas TV sportscaster, to fulfill the […]
