Is Trump’s America Really Our America?

The Donald and his thuggish regime of demagogic nativists from the far-right fringe are hoping we’re the timorous America. They shout that the people voted for the fair-haired strongman, and now they expect him to save them from bloodthirsty terrorists sneaking into America from Muslim nations. But wait — first of all, the majority of us did not vote for him. So spare us the lie that you have a “mandate” to discriminate.

Commander-In-Tweet: America’s Dangerous Experiment Of Government By Twitter

From November 11 through January 12, Trump sent out 315 tweets, including retweets. By any measure, the largest number of tweets—63—were whining. Using Trump-speak, Reagan gave the public the equivalent of about 114 tweets, almost all on policy. And not once did he didn’t whine, insult or brag.

What’s In Trump’s Heart Comes Out Of His Mouth

To hear Conway tell it, some combination of Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama has been hiding in plain sight all along, except that somehow, Trump’s unruly mouth failed to properly represent Trump’s saintly heart and it’s all your fault, anyway, for believing words and actions have meaning.

Colbert warns Trump: Don't mess with Meryl

#EndorseThis: Colbert Warns Trump, Don’t Mess With Meryl!

Donald Trump’s juvenile tweet deriding the legendary Meryl Streep as “overrated” went over the line — and Colbert’s rage is something to behold. Infuriated, he not only goes after the president-elect but saves a few sprays of vitriol for Kellyanne Conway, whose blatant dissembling has achieved historic levels, and Reince Priebus, who seems to believe that Russia has always chosen American presidents.

McConnell Does The GOP’s Dirty Work While All Eyes Follow Trump

McConnell is the perfect partner and lying propagandist for Trump. He maintains a straight face, which never upstages the coverage of Trump’s latest antics. As Americans will soon see, many shades of darkness inhabit Trump’s Washington.

Trump mocks NYT reporter Serge Kovaleski

Meryl Streep, Trump’s Attack On A Reporter’s Disability, And Reality

Trump lies habitually, so unwinding the rationale behind any particular falsehood is difficult. But the result is a news environment in which facts become unstable, reality is constantly under attack, and both journalists and news consumers are unable to process new information within a coherent collective framework.

Hugh Laurie tweaked in his Golden Globes acceptance speech

#EndorseThis: Trump Earns Most Mocked Award At Golden Globes

Golden Globes host Jimmy Fallon, widely criticized for his soft treatment of Trump on the Tonight Show last year, compared the president-elect to one of the most hated Game of Thrones characters and said the inauguration committee had even failed to book Florence Foster Jenkins, “the worst opera singer in the world.” But if Fallon was trying hard, Best Supporting TV Actor winner Hugh Laurie simply tossed off a few stylish, succinct, and biting lines to sum up the incoming administration.

Trump Has Already Pathetically Responded To Meryl Streep’s Epic Takedown

Donald Trump himself dismissed Streep’s remarks by pointing out her active support for Hillary Clinton, particularly at the Democratic National Convention. Absurdly, he called her an “over-rated actress” and denied making fun of Kovaleski “for the hundredth time.”

At Golden Globes, Meryl Streep Calls Out Trump’s Bullying

“There was one performance this year that stunned me,” said Meryl Streep at the Golden Globe awards. “Not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter.”

Weinstein Plans Film To Make NRA ‘Wish They Weren’t Alive’

Los Angeles (AFP) – Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has warned the National Rifle Association (NRA) he plans to make a movie with Meryl Streep that will make them “wish they weren’t alive.” The NRA did not immediately respond Thursday to the warning, made in an interview on shock-jock Howard Stern’s show, in which Weinstein […]
