Recent fits of rage

Trump Gagged


Analysts concerned Trump may spontaneously combust into ash The New York attorney general wants to bar Trump from doing business in the state. Last week, the judge overseeing his Trump Organization fraud case ruled that Trump and his co-defendants committed “persistent and repeated” fraud. It was the first of seven claims the attorney general is trying to prove, collectively for which Trump and...

Trump’s in a Jam


Second indictment drops, and this one’s a doozy Trump’s in a jam. Peach jam, to be specific. Straight from the great State of Georgia. It’s not Southern hospitality or sweet tea Trump’s being offered, however, it’s a second indictment and his “just desserts.” Folks in Trump World are biting their nails off with this one becuase, unlike other cases Trump...

Playtime’s Over…


Trump arraigned on election charges Mr. Trump was booked and fingerprinted before entering the courtroom this week and offering a soft-spoken “not guilty” to each of the four counts lodged against him on Tuesday by the special counsel. In addition to the election case, he faces federal charges of mishandling classified documents and accusations in New York related to hush money payments to a porn...

It’s Official: Trump Grabbed ‘er by the Pussy


The results are in & Trump is a rapist Donald has been claiming that because a jury in May found him guilty of sexual abuse, it meant he was not found guilty of rape. His legal team is drawing a distinction between the two as though they belong to separate categories and committing one precludes the other. In actuality, rape is but one subset of the broader term “sexual abuse.”...

Out of the Foxhole


Fox News made a 180 degree course correction on Tuesday by settling out of court with Dominion Voting Systems over the network’s defamatory lies it spread after the election, agreeing to pay the astronomical amount of $787.5 million. It’s nice to see gravity starting to return to the world of news and politics, where one’s held accountable for one’s actions. What’s...

Siri, the little engine that (barely) could


It’s 2023, right? 11 years after Mayan’s predicted the end of the world? 24 years after everyone was worried computers would turn into killer terminators at the end of 1999? Somehow, Siri still can’t be bothered to do anything for you unless she’s got an internet connection. I’m not talking about looking up directions to that local pizza place… I’m...

I Know Why the Caged Twit Sings


Love it or hate it, Twitter is here to stay. It’s become a staple in the worlds of politics, journalism, and beyond. The future of the company has never before looked so unsure. Following Elon Musk’s massive $44 billion deal to buy Twitter, he’s already fired some of its top executives and has hinted at major structural change coming soon. Years of animosity between Musk and...

New York Puts The Heavy on Trump


Hit with a new lawsuit like a ton of bricks My story also on Medium New York attorney general Lititia James has filed charges against Donald Trump and 3 of his children accusing them of fraud. In addition to $250 million in damages, New York seeks to bar the Trumps from ever again serving as executives on any company registered or licensed in New York. [Washington Post] The 222-page civil...

The Literal Stuff of Nightmares


Your eyeballs have no doubt already darted to the hideous sea monster emerging through the hazy, green mist below this paragraph. The newest fodder for my thalassophobia (fear of deep water) and reason to keep my psychotherapist employed, this bad boy was found in the Gulf of Mexico by a remotely operated Shell Oil underwater drone. Real Life ‘Squid Games’ Before you ask, yes —...

Skeletons in Golden Closets


Trump’s residence and office at Mar-a-Lago was raided by the F.B.I. today in an audacious move by a Justice Department which has taken criticism in the past for pulling punches. The search focused on material that Mr. Trump had brought with him to Mar-a-Lago when he left the White House, which allegedly contained many classified documents. They also cracked open one of Trump’s...
