Donald Trump is the first Republican to win Wisconsin since Dwight Eisenhower in 1952

Donald Trump is the first Republican to win Wisconsin since Dwight Eisenhower in 1952
Donald Trump told a clamoring throng of supporters in Fargo, North Dakota this week that he was the first Republican to win Wisconsin since 1952. If you’re one of the two or three people who read my stuff regularly, I would hope that you’re thinking to yourself, “Hmmm, that doesn’t seem right.” You would be... Read more »

Is Jon Meacham naive about the "Soul of America"?

Is Jon Meacham naive about the "Soul of America"?
In his new book, “The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels,” Jon Meacham presents the historical context out of which arose Donald Trump. The book’s conclusion seems a myopic, “It’ll be OK.” If only I could believe that. The book is a wonderland of American history, presented by great writer. “The Soul... Read more »

Is Ivanka Trump really a feckless vagina?

Is Ivanka Trump really a feckless vagina?
Samantha Bee stirred up quite a controversy last month when she called First (and favorite) Daughter, Ivanka Trump a “feckless cunt.” Out of respect for our sensibilities, I substituted the the v-word for the c-word in the title. It’s hard to say how any word can become such anathema to all that it is universally... Read more »

Did Trump just give away the store to a "very talented" Kim Jong-un?

Did Trump just give away the store to a "very talented" Kim Jong-un?
Let’s pretend that you just got an invitation to your cousin’s wedding.  The RSVP card and self-addressed envelope were missing, but that’s not all. There’s no mention of Cousin Kelly’s betrothed or of the date or location of the event.  It appears that Cousin Kelly is planning a wedding, but hasn’t yet made her love... Read more »

Exclusive: Donald Trump's remarks on Air Force One after the Kim summit
If you had a time machine, you could sprint 10 or 12 hours into the future and check out Donnie’s remarks following his historic meeting with Kim Jong-un, even before the talks begin. And it will be historic.  Whether or not it accomplishes anything remains to be seen. Following are Donnie’s comments made aboard Air... Read more »

How can we have a meeting without Russia?

How can we have a meeting without Russia?
When Donnie Trump asked a gaggle of reporters last week, “Why are we having a meeting without Russia being in the meeting?” no one answered. It seemed like a whimsical query, akin to Pink Floyd asking, “How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat?” Mr. Trump’s advocacy for Russia seems a... Read more »

You might be a Native American and not even know it

You might be a Native American and not even know it
Most people of Native American heritage know it.  There aren’t many who find out through Ancestry.com that their DNA is comprised of 26% Native American markers. Other than Native Americans, the indigenous people of what we call America, the rest of us are foreigners, immigrants.  Every last one of us is a direct link to... Read more »

Should Bob Iger apologize to Donald Trump or fire him?

Should Bob Iger apologize to Donald Trump or fire him?
This last week has been a Cword fest and I find myself flummoxed.   How we ever decided which words are nice and which are nasty is a mystery. George Carlin had a unique take on “dirty” words and you can watch that by clicking HERE. The whole Samantha Bee-Ivanka Trump thing is fading away, but... Read more »
