Donald Trump is Thanking Great Lakes Voters by Destroying Their Water

Republican presidential candidates hadn’t won Wisconsin or Michigan since 1984 and 1988, respectively, before Donald Trump swept through the Great Lakes states in 2016. Now he’s paying them back by fucking up their water. Written by Kyle Magin The Great Lakes hold a fifth of the world’s fresh water. There is nothing like them in the world. Nowhere does this much...

The No Way Out Administration

It’s not a matter of whether but how much Trump and his immediate surrogates are compromised by Russia. The only question that remains is: Where is the smoking gun...or Kevin Costner? By Andrew J. Pridgen The current, and justifiable, freak out over Jeff Sessions’ dealings with a Russian envoy (two meetings) during the ramp up to Trump taking office should perhaps...

Using a soldier’s preventable death for an applause line — welcome to the unbearable irony of the Trump presidency

Or, Van Jones, what the fuck is wrong with you? By Andrew J. Pridgen President Donald J. Trump enjoyed the first two minutes of love during his young but embattled administration during Tuesday’s prime time State of the Union-style speech to a joint session of Congress. The administration, which has thus far been pockmarked by a steady flow of lies (there were...

The five pillars of white privilege enjoyed by author Mitch Albom

This fucking guy...I might have to become the first person ever to burn Tuesdays with Morrie. By Andrew J. Pridgen Mitch Albom, author of children’s books for adults and surreptitious Trump supporter, is a fuckhead. Sorry, I know that sentence was terse and not very nice, but it is in words he’d understand. Albom quizzically weighed in on the growing number of New...

Wow …look who’s finally woke to Trump ties to Russia

(Hint: It’s the medias) ...But guess who’s not? That’s right the GO to the P. By Andrew J. Pridgen Less than thirty days after we for whatever-the-fuck-reason installed a molding piece of citrus you just found in the back of the crisper while cleaning out the fridge whose human form is a merkin-wigged former reality TV star and unconfirmed billionaire Chinese...

Коррупция буйствовать

What OKC fans were really saying when they chanted ‘Cupcake’ at Kevin Durant

Dog whistle racism was heard loud and clear far beyond the confines of Chesapeake Energy Arena Saturday night. By Andrew J. Pridgen I wasn’t the only one offended watching Saturday night’s NBA marquee match-up as the Golden State Warriors visited enemy territory in Oklahoma City. My phone buzzed to low battery life with texts that read “Are you watching this?”, “What’s...

So we’re clear, traditional moderates and conservatives are just as fed up with this bullshit

Republicans have over the last decade been co-opted by a fringe movement and remade themselves into a party of ridiculous piety, insecurity and wealth. They are a danger to the rest of us as long as the rest of us remain silent. That time has ended. How do we know this? Look no further than Utah.  By Andrew J. Pridgen Like the...

Two weeks into our national nightmare and the world’s biggest threat to free societies is winning. Here’s what the media must do to stop him.

Band together, put in the mouthpiece, take a sip and spit in the bucket, remove the gloves and get ready to scrap like there’s no tomorrow — because there isn’t. By Andrew J.
