At 69, he can still carry on like the teen who was yanked out of prep school and delivered to Col. Dobias, the take-no-shit instructor at the military academy. After I met Ivanka and praised her to her father, he said, “Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father . . .” … [Read more...] about A Complete-ish History of Donald Trump’s Obsession With His Ideal Woman, His Own Daughter

To be clear, Trump is not concerned with the safety of American citizens. America’s drug problem is three times worse than Mexico’s and our southern neighbor has the 12th-worst rate of firearm deaths in the world, which is terrible. It must be so upsetting to live in fear of getting shot and killed by Mexican cartels. … [Read more...] about Is Donald Trump Planning to Invade Mexico?
CO2 isn’t exactly pollution, but it does cause warming and slight acidification of water if very large quantities are dug from deep underground and added to the surface cycle. The problem is the age-old tragedy of the commons. The common good being consumed is atmospheric and oceanic carbon capacity, which currently has a price of zero.

Does that sound like Donald Trump? … [Read more...] about Fake Rich Guy Donald Trump Pretends He Wants To Buy The Buffalo Bills
Either Captain America’s heroics have rubbed off on Chris Evans, or the actor’s just proving he was made for the role. Whatever the case, Evans has used his platform to criticize white supremacists and the current administration (which are, occasionally, two separate entities). The Infinity War star has spoken out against David Duke, who’s taken to calling himself a “European-American activist,” because he’s no longer the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. When Duke tried to shame Evans for having interracial relationships—going so far as to suggest that the actor “hates the women of his people so much,” whatever the fuck that means—the erstwhile Captain just reminded the former Klan member that hatred is Duke’s hood. We mean, bag. … [Read more...] about Chris Evans won’t stop fighting real-life supervillain Donald Trump
