  • New York Times: Let’s Call It Trumpvirus

    So, our Coronavirus Czar is going to be … Mike Pence. Feeling more secure? “I know full well the importance of presidential leadership,” the vice president said as soon as he was introduced in his new role. Totally qualified. First criterion for every job in this administration is capacity for praising the gloriousness of our commander in chief. Yeah, when you think of Mike Pence you maybe don’t think about Pandemic Fighter Supreme. But as President Trump pointed out repeatedly, he has already run Indiana. Well, it probably could have been worse. Having a czar does make you feel there’s...
  • VIDEO: Sensitive Professor Hilariously Triggered by Sound of Trump's Voice

    VIDEO Columbia University professor John McWhorter absolutely can't stand listening to President Donald Trump speak. As you can see in this video, it causes him to make hilariously over-the-top vitriolic attacks upon Trump's vocabulary and the way he uses his words. I'm sure that Trump's down to earth Queens borough accent also adds to the professor's sputtering rage.
  • How the US census misses people of color – and why it's so harmful [Barf Alert!]

    Imagine you’re trying to count every single person living in the United States. There are two main ways that you can mess up; you can count some people twice and you can miss some people out. In 2010, the Census Bureau made both mistakes, as it always does, because counting people is hard. It double-counted about 3% of people and omitted another 3% and, because those mistakes work in opposite directions, the overall population count was almost perfectly accurate. What’s revealing though is who gets counted twice and who gets left out altogether. That’s where race has historically played a...
  • Patricia Arquette to Followers: Cause ‘Economic Shut Down,’ ‘#RESIST’

    The lefty co-star of the third installment in the Nightmare on Elm Street series is apparently trying to help force a nightmare on Wall Street. Patricia Arquette felt it worthy of the #RESIST movement to summon her inner Bill Maher and implore followers to tank the U.S. economy. How? She told her followers to not buy anything on March 2nd. Really. Arquette took to Instagram to post what appears to be a screenshot of a Feb. 15 tweet that read: “A REMINDER: please contact everyone you know. On Monday, March 2nd, we’re going to have an Economic Shutdown.”

    The Trump campaign has filed a libel lawsuit against what it called the “extremely biased” New York Times, saying the paper’s March 27, 2019 op-ed titled “The Real Trump-Russia Quid Pro Quo” amounted to a knowingly false smear intended to “improperly influence the presidential election in November 2020.” “They did a bad thing,” Trump said at a coronavirus press conference later Wednesday, before apparently promising more litigation. “There will be more coming. There will be more coming.” The lawsuit seeks “compensatory damages in the millions of dollars,” as well as punitive damages and legal fees. Knowing that then-Special Counsel Robert...

    President Trump accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday of trying to create a panic around the coronavirus outbreak after the California Democrat criticized the White House’s emergency planning as “inadequate.” Trump called Pelosi “incompetent” and accused her of using the virus for a political reason during a press conference where he sought to minimize fears of the virus spreading and announced that Vice President Mike Pence will head up Washington’s response to the outbreak. “She’s trying to create a panic and there is no reason to panic,” Trump said. “All they are trying to is get a political advantage,...

    The liberal network that once hyperventilated because President Trump is sometimes served an extra scoop of ice cream has struck again – this time mocking the president because he might have to eschew a cheeseburger or two during his trip to India. CNN published an article on Sunday – “'I have never seen him eat a vegetable:' Trump braces for a beef-free menu in India” – co-written by Kaitlan Collins, Kevin Liptak and Vivian Salama. “When President Donald Trump travels abroad … his hosts usually try make him feel at home with his favorite meal: steak with miniature bottles of...

    Lawmakers from both parties told Pentagon leaders on Wednesday that the Defense Department is undermining its own efforts to get military money by diverting billions of dollars for the construction of President Donald Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border wall The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and the committee’s top Republican warned Defense Secretary Mark Esper that overturning congressional funding decisions to shift money for the wall is an enormous problem that will have consequences. The plan to shift money has triggered rare Republican opposition to one of Trump’s priorities. Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, said the result may be that Congress...

    Mitt Romney, who was the only Republican senator to break party lines and vote in favor of Donald Trump being impeached at his Senate trial earlier this month, is now attacking the president again. This time, the Utah senator is claiming that the Trump administration is totally unprepared for a potential coronavirus outbreak. As Trump tried to tamp concerns over the coronavirus in New Delhi, saying that the situation was “under control” and is a “problem that’s going to go away,” Romney was confronting officials in Washington D.C. at a private briefing on the virus. As a member of the...

    The coronavirus that emerged from Wuhan, China, last year is causing alarm across the world, with fear that this could become the next pandemic. Late last month, the World Health Organization declared the virus, named COVID-19, a "Public Health Emergency of International Concern" and urged an immediate international response. It advised its member states to put in place national preparedness plans and procedures for identifying and responding to any COVID-19 cases that might present. The death toll of more than 2,600 people far exceeds that of the SARS outbreak nearly 17 years ago.

    Howard Dean said President Trump would give Alaska back to Russia if Russian President Vladimir Putin asked while suggesting the eventual 2020 Democratic presidential nominee would be less likely to do so after going through a grueling nomination process. "I used to say this all the time. Now it has a new meaning. But if you're not tough enough to get through this process, what are you going to do when Putin asks for Alaska back? Well, unfortunately, we have a president who would give it to him today, but hopefully, that will change," the former Vermont governor and 2004...

    President Trump's acquittal in the Senate is driving some of the media's worst Trump haters into a tizzy. The media's bias has been intensely negative -- and yet the problem is apparently it's not intensely negative enough. In The Washington Post, where each morning their front page screeches of how "Democracy dies in darkness," media columnist Margaret Sullivan is bizarrely urging the media to drop its "neutrality at all costs" model and go all out in opposition to Trump .

    President Trump’s popularity is higher than before the Democrats' impeachment debacle began, and that continues to frustrate and outrage the leftists in our midst. Like Wile E. Coyote learns over-and-over again, no matter what he does, the Roadrunner just keeps tweeting on down the road at record speed. They’ve worked to impeach Trump since he took office and finally achieved it, only to have him exonerated by the Senate. They’ve mocked him, his tweets, and his priorities. They’ve drowned him in negative media coverage. They’ve called him a narcissist, a tyrant, and an uncaring fraud. But nothing is working,...

    Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued a scathing rebuke of the court's decision to allow the Trump administration to enforce its "public charge" rule in the state of Illinois, limiting which non-citizens can obtain visas to enter the U.S. Sotomayor's problems with the conservative majority's ruling went far beyond this case, claiming that it was symptomatic of the court's habit of siding with the government when they seek emergency stays of rulings against them. "It is hard to say what is more troubling: that the Government would seek this extraordinary relief seemingly as a matter of course, or that...

    It’s midday in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. As the sun beats down, saguaro cacti throw little shade over this part of the Sonoran Desert, where summer temperatures regularly top 37°C (99°F). Today though a very narrow segment of the park is getting a little more shade. It’s accompanied by the incessant whine of construction vehicles. President Donald Trump’s major campaign promise is taking shape — a rusty, nine-meter tall mix of concrete and steel. As of January 31, 185 kilometers (115 miles) of new wall had been built, according to the US Customs and Border Protection Agency. Depending on...

    President Donald Trump is stewing over a segment on Thursday’s edition of Your World with Neil Cavuto — in which a guest analyst offered a harsh critique of his 2016 debate performances. In a Thursday afternoon tweet, Trump blasted A.B. Stoddard of RealClearPolitics for calling his debates “disastrous.” So furious was the president that he went so far as to seemingly blame “Fox board member Paul Ryan” — who joined the board of the Fox Corporation in March 2019 — for Stoddard’s analysis. “Could somebody at @foxnews please explain to Trump hater A.B. Stoddard (zero talent!) and @TeamCavuto, that I...

    [snip] Ford also praised Swedish teen-age anti-climate-change activist Greta Thunberg during a recent public appearance, during which he criticized “our lack of moral leadership” and lamented that “Science is being ridiculed by people in ideological campgrounds.” Ford didn’t mention Trump specifically during a clip published by the Associated Press on Thursday, February 6, but appeared to refer to him. Ford took a different tack on commenting about public affairs when interviewed in 1997 by George, a magazine founded by John F. Kennedy Jr. that published from 1995 to 2001. Kennedy, who wrote the article, asked Ford about his interest in...
