Trump's properties (e.g. Dooshbegg and Dingleberry) must be pretty crappy.

The only way he can book rooms is to force people to stay there.

Why are shadowy RW orgs running ads on M$NBC?

Seems like worse than a waste of money; it just riles us up even more!

I'm shopping in the Putin-Free section.

It's important to check the ingredients for anything with an "R" (Russiapublican) in it.

USA Today caught cheating on poll

USA Today breathlessly claims "Poll: Half of Americans say Trump is victim of a 'witch hunt' as trust in Mueller erodes!!!"

https://www.vox.com/2019/3/18/18271441/trump-tweet-usa-today-suffolk-poll-mueller-witch-hunt

...But the poll question on which that headline rests is seriously flawed. The question reads as follows: “President Trump has called the Special Counsel’s investigation a ‘witch hunt’ and said he’s been subjected to more investigations than previous presidents because of politics. Do you agree?”

It’s true that 50.3 percent of the poll’s 1,000 respondents said “yes” to that question. But that doesn’t necessarily mean they believe the Mueller investigation is a “witch hunt.” The prompt packs two different questions into one — a poor strategy for a poll question. Respondents simply may have meant to agree that Trump has been “subjected to more investigations than previous presidents because of politics” — a controversial but defensible position — without intending to go further and indicate they think Trump is the victim of a “witch hunt.”

Big Dipper Toilet Guy gets caught lying to Congress

Looks like Wiseacre Whitaker is going to have to wipe that snarky smirk off of his face.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/13/us/politics/whitaker-michael-cohen-trump.html

WASHINGTON — The former acting attorney general Matthew G. Whitaker “did not deny” in a private meeting with House lawmakers on Wednesday that he had spoken to President Trump about an investigation in New York that had ensnared the president and his business, the Democratic chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said.

Speaking after the meeting, the chairman, Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York, presented Mr. Whitaker’s comments as being at odds with his public testimony last month before the Judiciary Committee. In that hearing, Mr. Whitaker generally would not say if he had communicated with the president about the case, which led to charges against Michael D. Cohen, Mr. Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer.

Why are porn star payments getting more coverage than crimes against humanity?

Trump is kidnapping and raping babies and seems proud of it. He's a Proud Boy all right.

Why the hell is this story not the lead every single day? Why are Stephen Miller, Kirsten Nielsen, and Donald J Trump not being prosecuted for human rights violations?

Democrat wins Northern Va. state Senate seat vacated by Jennifer Wexton

By 40 points!!!

Way to go Loudoun and Fairfax Counties! This is my district and I'm very happy to see we're going firmly blue. I met Jennifer Boysko at the polling place in the primary and she seems very genuine and smart.
