The True Story of Donald Trump and His Super-Action Heroics


"Turd Immunity"

President Obama Gets It

60 minutes releases trailer


Obama: "...even then, his TV ratings are down"

Obama: "[Trump] has not shown any interest in doing the work or helping anybody but himself & his friends or treating the presidency like a reality show he can use to get attention..the only people truly better off than they were 4 years ago are billionaires who got his tax cuts"

Obama on Trump: "He's got a secret Chinese bank account. How's that possible? Listen, can you imagine if had a secret Chinese bank account when I was running for reelection? You think Fox News might've been a little concerned? They would've called me Beijing Barry."


i mean


Over last 24 hrs, we've found out:

Trump pays more taxes to China than to the United States

-Trump has a secret Chinese bank account

-Trump admin. effectively orphaned 545 kids

-Trump stormed out of 60 Mins intrvw like a baby

-Giuliani is on tape touching himself in a f***ing Borat movie


"It wasn't just tears, it was screams."

"The children will be taken care of — put into foster care or whatever."

1/ "It wasn't just tears, it was screams." Here's a piece I think about a lot. A caseworker told me about breaking the news to separated kids that their parents had been deported without them and couldn't be found.

Many of the parents of children on her caseload ended up being deported, ending any hope of a quick reunion. When that happened, she would meet with her fellow caseworkers and staff therapists, sometimes for hours, to discuss how to break the news to the child. They used pictures and puppets to illustrate the distance between the United States and countries like Guatemala. And they spoke in intentionally vague terms to avoid making false promises about when the children might be able to see their parents again, after learning the hard way that even those who were barely old enough to talk would latch on to any concrete expectation.

“We would have to say, ‘In many, many days you will be reunited with your parent, but we have to do a lot of paperwork,’ ” she told me, mimicking the soft voice she would use with an upset child. “The kids would still be like, ‘O.K., when am I going?’ They would start crying and it wasn’t just tears, it was screams.”


Sarah Jane 1937-2020: A service will be held once Trump is out of office, so we can truly celebrate.


WITTSTRUCK, Sarah Jane died at home October 14, 2020. She was born in St. Petersburg to Jack and Mary Wittstruck in 1937 and is predeceased by her sister, Mary Ann Shaffer; and her brother, Thomas Wittstruck. Sarah graduated from Wesleyan College in Macon, GA, in May 1959, and made her career in social work at the Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County. After she retired from JWB, she obtained her Master's Degree at USF, and started her second career as a librarian at the Gulfport Library. Sarah was a lifelong member of First United Methodist Church, where she sang in the choir, was a member of United Methodist Women, served on several boards, and made many lasting friendships. She was involved with Church Women United, becoming treasurer, as well as many other nonprofit organizations. Her concern for children and the vulnerable was apparent in how she lived. Sarah is survived by her three children, Derry Leigh Smith (Grant), Mary Carole Battle (Paul) and Michael Fisher (Kim); along with nine grandchildren, Andrew (Rachel), Ted (Asa), Satchel, Erica, Laura, Beryl, India, Jacob and Michaela; and two great-grandchildren, Wyatt and Ezra. She will also be missed by her seven surviving siblings; Barbara Trombly (Claude), Bill Wittstruck (Gloria), Martha Wilson (Bob), Harriet Wills (Joe), Frances Habecker (John), Carole Wittstruck, and Jimmy Wittstruck (Teresa); and a huge extended family. A service will be held once Trump is out of office, so we can truly celebrate.


Sarcastic tweet of the day


I, for one, am outraged that I had to find this out from a tabloid like the New York Times instead of the New York Post, home of multiple Pulitzer-Prize-winning investigative journalists. I demand answers for why this isn’t a lead story, @nypost
