Chelsea Clinton Pretends To Defend Barron Trump, Shivs His Dad

8:39 AM 01/23/2017

From 2009-2016, insulting or mocking the president's kids was a career-ending offense. But now it's back in a big way! Our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left are lining up to pick on 10-year-old Barron Trump, because it makes them feel better about losing an election to his dad. Never mind that Barron's just a kid. Never mind that he didn't choose any of this. It's OK to go after him, because he's a child of wealth and privilege who's not named Sasha or Malia.

Can You Identify This Woman Who Set A Trump Supporter’s Hair On Fire In DC On Inauguration Day?

10:10 PM 01/22/2017

What do you call someone who chants "Love trumps hate" and then sets a Trump supporter's hair on fire with a lighter? No, seriously. The woman who did what you're about to see, what's she called? I want to know her name.

With Obama Gone, It’s Okay To Do Stuff That Wasn’t Cool For Eight Years

7:55 AM 01/21/2017

Now that the Democrats have ceded control of the White House, that means they can do whatever they want. Especially if it's stuff they screamed about when their ideological opponents did it, or when they falsely claimed as much. Trump has been president for less than 24 hours, and already we're seeing these three American traditions making a big comeback.

Protester Reacts To Trump’s Moment Of Inauguration: ‘NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!’

3:21 PM 01/20/2017

I don't care who you are. #NeverTrump, #AlwaysTrump, #OkayPossiblyTrump, whatever. If you can watch this without laughing, you've got a really tough 4 years ahead of you.

Michael Moore Has Another Prediction About Trump

2:04 PM 01/20/2017

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I was 100% wrong about Donald Trump's electability. I didn't want Hillary to win, but I figured she would. I figured everybody was right. So waking up after election night was a nice surprise. Since then, no matter my misgivings, I keep coming back to the same thought: At least it's not her.

Barack Obama Isn’t The President Of The United States Anymore

12:14 PM 01/20/2017

I don't really have anything to add beyond that. I've just been waiting 8 long years to write that headline, and I'm going to enjoy this moment.

Ellen DeGeneres On Obama: ‘I Am A Legally Married Woman Because Of Him’

8:34 AM 01/20/2017

Whether you believe in gay marriage or not, one thing's for sure: There's nothing more important than the narrative. Not facts, not evidence, not... well, not even time.

Pro-war politician of fortune Al Franken, who pimped out his own infant grandson for campaign contributions earlier this year, was once an unfunny comedian with bit parts on

Rick Perry And Al Franken Share A Rather Ribald Chuckle

6:31 PM 01/19/2017

If Rick Perry is at all bothered by that dishonest and inept smear attempt by the New York Times this week, he sure didn't show it during his confirmation hearing for energy secretary today. Here he is having a few laughs with Senator Al Franken:

Soon, Taxpayers Will No Longer Foot The Bill For Enabling Bradley Manning’s Delusions

2:58 PM 01/19/2017

When a man betrays his country, he should be punished for his treason. But why should an innocent woman be expected to pay for that man's crimes? That's why genetic male Bradley Manning was sent to military prison, but "Chelsea" Manning will soon go free.

The Top 10 Things I’ll Miss Most About Obama

12:51 PM 01/19/2017

Here we are, less than 24 hours away from the end of the Obama administration. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm actually a bit wistful about it. I had him pegged as a jerk all the way back in September 2008, and the past 8 years have done nothing to convince me otherwise. He's been a terrible president, he's lied to me every day of his public life, and I'm not sad to see him go. Nonetheless, he hasn't been all bad. So, here at the Top 10 Things I'll Miss Most About Obama. Drumroll, please... Number 10!

CNN Devotes Entire Segment To Trump Assassination Fantasy

10:49 AM 01/19/2017

Hey, look, CNN isn't saying they want Trump to be assassinated. They've just been doing a lot of thinking about what would happen if he was.

LGBT Activists Hold Dance Party Outside Pence’s Temporary DC Home

9:01 AM 01/19/2017

I'm not exactly sure what Mike Pence did to piss off so many liberals who happen to be gay (and gays who happen to be liberal). Is it because he caved to their pressure on Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act? Or because he decided to go see Hamilton without their permission? Or because he's got that rugged Race Bannon look that drives them wild, but it's too agonizing to imagine doing it with a... Republican? [shudder]

Socialist College Students Plan Walkout On Inauguration Day For Some Reason

5:29 PM 01/18/2017

Back when I was a youngster in college, we found our own ways to have good wholesome fun. Stuff like swallowing goldfish and stuffing ourselves into phone booths and carving up hobos. But that was then. Young folks these days have come up with a new way to waste everybody's time: whining about Trump!

Genetic Male Bradley Manning Pulls Off The Klinger Gambit

8:53 AM 01/18/2017

Remember Corporal Klinger on M*A*S*H? He was the fellow who wore women's clothes so the Army would declare him a Section 8 and send him home. In later seasons of the show, he gave it up and stopped being hilarious. But now, Bradley Manning has pulled off that ploy in real life. Obama is the first president in U.S. history to commute the sentence of a "woman" for the crimes of a man.
