If you’re a longtime fan of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, you know that like every comedian, he has been waiting for the material offered by “President Trump” all his life. (Even though Triumph can’t actually utter that phrase without throwing up.) He showed up on the National Mall for the Inauguration, eager for a chance to berate the new chief executive and his supporters. The cranky cur sank his fangs deep and didn’t let go.

In December 2019, when then-President Donald Trump was facing his first of two impeachments, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie launched the nonprofit Right Direction America to defend him. The 2022 campaign of far-right Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, a hardcore Trumpista, donated $100,000 to the nonprofit earlier this year during Trump's second impeachment — and journalist Roger Sollenberger, in an article published by the Daily Beast, stresses that the donation raises some questions.
