Trump doesn’t really want a wall. With impeachment on the horizon, he just wants to demonstrate that he has the support of America’s angry, terrified, racist, and uninformed white males.

As of yesterday, the federal government had been partially shut down for two weeks, and Donald Trump marked the occasion by tweeting out the above image, making it clear that he didn’t intend to give in, even though our national parks are overflowing with shit and TSA agents have stopped coming to work, bringing air […]

Military pawns, racist scum, and living in a nation where no-one’s at the helm… Welcome to the #TrumpShutdown

I feel bad for America, but I have to admit I do take some pleasure in watching the Republicans be eaten alive by the monster that they created… Goodbye, Eric Cantor.

To my knowledge, Eric Cantor’s primary loss yesterday to Tea Party challenger David Brat was unprecedented in the modern era. House majority leaders just don’t lose primaries.
