Sorry, the “breaking news” in this submission is the “breaking news” that this country has conditioned itself to being run by an old-school, dictator-wanna be, cigar-chomping, medal-wearing, balcony-standing, impulsive, man-boy. It is no longer “breaking news” when the President of the United States, rage tweets, spewing vicious hatred toward a specifically-named reporter and source, and […]
Donald Trump touts himself as a “brand” an ineffable, inscrutable, as potent as it is unascertainable, he persuades us, brand. That may have been the case for some number of years, but as of 2015, the brand has been in steady decline. “The wall that he [built] was more around his merchandise than it was […]
If I were you, I wouldn’t waste all of my time glued to MSNBC, or CNN, waiting for the flash news that Michael Cohen has agreed to cooperate with the FBI investigators. Yes, I know, Cohen is under incredible pressure to flip since the FBI raid. But I don’t think that the pressure is anywhere […]
Ivana Trump is one of the more skillful trolls in the celebrity-verse these days. Today she told Page Six: that her ex husband shouldn’t seek re-election in 2020.

On Thursday, Michael Avenatti, Stormy Daniels lawyer, made a bold prediction on Nicole Wallace’s show: This is a very, very serious matter for the president at this point. There’s no question that Michael Cohen knows where many, many bodies are buried. They are going to turn him. And when they turn him, the president is […]
Michael Cohen has famously said, “I’d take a bullet for him. I’d never walk away.” What inspires such fierce, unyielding loyalty? It sure isn’t approval because Donald Trump has withheld that, despite Cohen’s doglike devotion. Trump is an abusive boss, who, if anything, rebuffs Cohen’s efforts to please. New York Times: Over the years, Mr. […]
It keeps getting better and better. According to The Daily Beast, Stormy Daniels plans to sue Donald Trump for defamation after he called the composite sketch of a man who allegedly threatened her a “total con job.” On Tuesday, Daniels went on The View to reveal the sketch: After the show aired, Trump took to his favorite […]
Laundering mistress payoff money isn’t officially an area of legal specialization, nevertheless it is Michael Cohen’s metier. Remember the smoking gun of Watergate, where Woodward and Bernstein found a $25,000 deposit made with campaign funds put into the bank account of one of the Watergate burglars? Michael Avenatti has found something similar. Vanity Fair: Indeed, […]
This.Is.Rich. If you ever doubted for a nanosecond that the current Republican landscape is filled with nothing but unabashed whores and sycophants, acolytes in the Church of Trump, wait until you read the love letter Ted Cruz wrote to Donald Trump as part of a TIME Magazine series on the most influential people in the […]
