Chapo’s Strap-on House

Absolutism on the left is no path to victory. In our latest podcast, Cliff Schecter and I talk about the importance of holding Democrats accountable while still understanding that our greater fight is with Donald Trump. We also discuss the latest on Trump-Russia and how the Mueller investigation, with the help of the IRS and […]

The GOP finds FEMA Jesus

On the heels of Hurricane Harvey’s disaster in Texas, heartless Republicans in Congress are preparing to cut nearly $1 billion from America’s disaster assistance programs in order to pay for Trump’s racist wall. At the same time, Texas Republicans have made it harder for Texans to force insurance companies to make good on disaster claims; […]

“Remember Senator, today you’re pro-choice”

A new episode of our UnPresidented podcast is out. On today’s show, Hurricane Harvey ravages Texas, so Donald Trump’s first impulse was to pardon a racist “for the ratings.” Then Trump flies to Texas, interfering with disaster relief, but getting a great photo opp of Melania mingling with the little people in stiletto heels (seriously). […]

Trump to obstruct disaster relief in Texas tomorrow

Donald Trump, himself an ever-growing disaster, is preparing to parachute into Texas tomorrow to interfere with relief efforts during the ongoing natural disaster unfolding in that state (it’s not over yet, the storm is now heading back to the gulf, and may regroup into a hurricane then head north!). The scenes on TV are horrific […]

Welcome to our new Resistance podcast

I have joined with my longtime friend and progressive colleague Cliff Schecter in launching a new podcast dedicated to empowering the Resistance, called “UnPresidented.” We do a minimum of two episodes per week. Half are open to everyone, and half are subscriber-only. We’re asking for a minimum subscription of $5/month, which is standard for most […]

As nation braces for devastating hurricane, Trump helps racists

Donald Trump just had his Hurricane Katrina moment. Trump, who just last week embraced actual Nazis, used his first presidential pardon moments ago on Sherrif Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of refusing to comply with a court order to stop violating the Civil Rights Act by racially profiling Latinos. Arpaio was also a lead birther, […]

Trump nominee says being gay is a “choice,” and gay marriage will lead to pedophilia

Donald Trump’s nominee to be the chief scientist at the Department of Agriculture thinks being gay is a choice, and that legalizing same-sex marriage will lead to legalize pedophilia. His name is Sam Clovis, and these revelations come from CNN’s KFile, who uncovered that Clovis made these comments between 2012 and 2014, so they’re hardly […]

Trump’s non-stop vacations have bankrupted the Secret Service

Donald Trump’s non-stop vacations to his various golf courses have bankrupted the Secret Service, USA Today reports. The problem is the size of Trump’s extended family, plus the necessity of keeping agents full-time at Trump’s various golf courses up and down the east coast. As a result, the Secret Service has already spent its entire […]

Hilarious breakdown of Trump’s chaotic four weeks (video)

CNN did a great breakdown of Donald Trump’s chaotic last four weeks in office. Brooke Baldwin talked us through the list of disasters, that was so long she had to stop to get some water! With the election of Donald Trump, AMERICAblog’s independent journalism and activism is more needed than ever. Please support our writing, […]

Trump says we should bury Muslims with pigs to stop terror

In an apparent attempt to deflect attention from the fact that he is a Nazi sympathizer, Donald Trump today tweeted an urban myth that the way to effectively fight terror is to bury Muslims with pigs. The idea being that this is such sacrilege that it will scare Muslim terrorists from ever attacking us again. […]

Former CIA Director: Trump is “dangerous”

Former CIA Director John Brennan said the other night that Donald Trump’s embrace of white supremacists and Nazis is “ugly and dangerous,” and that “Mr. Trump is putting our national security and our collective futures at grave risk.” Brennan made his comments in a note to CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, who revealed this week that […]

Let’s elect America’s first openly-gay governor

Let’s make LGBT history. Please contribute $25 to the campaign of a man who hopes to become America’s first openly-gay governor. I had no idea until now that we’ve never had an openly-gay man elected governor of any state. Rich Madaleno plans to change that by becoming the Governor of Maryland next year. After the horrific […]

Trump tweets, deletes, image of CNN reporter being killed

Donald Trump this morning tweeted, then deleted, a cartoon of a CNN reporter being murdered this morning by a runaway train. This was in response to the outrage over Trump refusing to criticize the terrorist murder of a young woman by an Alt Right white supremacist in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday. Trump was upset at […]

Trump retweets Alt Right leader diminishing Charlottesville outrage

Donald Trump this evening retweeted an “Alt Right” (hipster racist movement) leader trying to diminish the outrage over the terrorist attack that took place during a white supremacist protest in Charlottesville, Virginia. Trump’s elevation of Alt Right leader and conspiracy theory publicist Jack Posobiec took place only a few hours after Trump criticized the Alt […]

Trump calls CNN “fake news” after being asked why didn’t criticize Nazis earlier

Donald Trump just flipped out on CNN’s Jim Acosta, who asked Trump at an event why he didn’t criticize the Charlottesville Nazis earlier. Trump claimed he did condemn them. He didn’t mention that it took 48 hours of blistering criticism for Trump to finally do it. When Acosta followed up with another question, Trump called […]

Life comes at Trump fast

Last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Donald Trump gleefully launched a Twitter tirade against Republican Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Then, 24 hours later, he needed McConnell and the Senate GOP, and they knifed him. Trump was upset that McConnell was unable to get a health care reform repeal passed through the Senate, so he unloaded […]

Trump White House just equated anti-Nazi protesters with Nazis

Trump White House Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert this morning compared anti-Nazi protesters in Charlottesville with the Nazis they were protesting. This occurred on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper. Tapper was incredulous. Show More Summary

Hillary was right

Hillary was right. She warned us, almost one year ago to the day, that a man you can goad with a tweet shouldn’t be given access to the nuclear codes. And here we are, six months into Trump’s presidency, potentially on the brink of a nuclear war because Trump just can’t STFU. Donald Trump has […]

Trump responsible for double-digit health insurance premium increases, per new study

Donald Trump is responsible for health insurance premiums increasing by double-digit numbers next year, according to a new study by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Kaiser found that two of Donald Trump’s threats — not to enforce the individual mandate (which forces everyone to buy insurance) and threatening to cut off subsidies that insurers use to […]

Is Donald Trump okay?

Is Donald Trump okay? For someone who made such a big deal about Hillary Clinton’s health during the election, Trump wheezes an awful lot when he speaks. One recent example: Trump’s speech honoring first responders who saved the lives of members of Congress under fire during a softball game. Throughout the talk, Trump sounds like […]
