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 […]
Donald Trump should not have even been on the first three Forbes 400 lists, according to journalist Jon Greenberg. He got there by lying. The first time, in 1982, he claimed to be worth $100Million when he was in fact  worth $5Million, a drop in the bucket, compared to the mega wealthy with whom Trump […]
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, […]
And now a word from our sponsor. Really Donald, I mean, really?!? “Shadey” James Comey That tweet had to come from Trump directly, since his aides and staff all had to be able to spell their names correctly on their applications. Come on man, even a rapper like eminem knows how to spell “Shady” correctly! People get […]
Andrew McCabe, Former FBI Director, is planning to sue the Trump administration for defamation, wrongful termination and other possible civil suits, according to multiple media reports Friday. Attorney General Jeff Session fired McCabe earlier this year after a report found that he made an unauthorized disclosure of information to the media and that he lacked “candor”  with federal investigators.  […]
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 […]
If Trump has taught me anything, it is to fear my tendency toward pronouncing absolutes; “No way will Trump win the Republican nomination.” And, “No way will Trump beat Hillary.” To say nothing of, “No way does this man last one year as president.” All down the drain, I have learned my lesson. Or have […]
Robert Kuttner of the American Prospect posted this comment today as the pre-amble to his newsletter. It’s so on point. President Pence, What’s Not to Like? I’ve heard otherwise sensible people say that removing Donald Trump would not be a good idea because then we’d get President Pence and then Republicans could regroup. You gotta […]
You know, I’m starting to think that if Trump wants to stop at least some of the bleeding, the first solution may be to keep his big, fat, New York mouth shut until Shinzo Abe leaves town. So far, nothing good has come of it. Yesterday, I wote an article that chronicled the intentional disrespect […]
