In February of 2017, at some conservative event in Maryland, Donald Trump said that Paris was a ruined city because too many brown and black people live there now. (I’m giving you the gist.)

Our idiot president spent his Friday night engaged in the extremely healthy and productive behavior we’ve all come to expect from the leader of the free world: watching cable news enough to get somehow dumber and angrier, and then picking a fight about it on Twitter.

Cardinals President Michael Bidwill, Who Wants To Get Back To Football, Uses Team To Make Political Statement Cardinals President Michael Bidwill, Who Wants To Get Back To Football, Uses Team To Make Political Statement

As the case of Colin Kaepernick has shown, silent demonstration is employment poison in the NFL. If a person wants to push their political views, it’s best to be in charge of a team, so they can also co-opt said team’s website and Twitter account to stump for an old high school chum.

Tuesday’s edition of WWE SmackDown Live ended with something of a surprise.

Report: EPA Head Scott Pruitt Used His Position To Get 50-Yard-Line Seats For The Rose Bowl Report: EPA Head Scott Pruitt Used His Position To Get 50-Yard-Line Seats For The Rose Bowl

I find myself more impressed than anything by EPA head Scott Pruitt’s venality. Sure, the man is corrupt. But he’s corrupt in ways no one had ever even conceived of before! The man’s unflagging creativity in graft is inspiring, in its gross way, and his drive is something to behold. For the rest of us, there simply…

Bitchin' Politician Just Blasts Himself Right In The Eyeballs With Pepper Spray!

Levi Tillemann is a Democrat running for Congress in Colorado’s sixth congressional district, and he wants you to know he is a leader who will work to “break through the partisan gridlock” and honestly I missed most of the rest of it because holy shit the guy just unloads a fucking quart of pepper spray into his own…

Trump Thinking "Very Seriously" About Pardoning Muhammad Ali, Who Has No Criminal Record Trump Thinking "Very Seriously" About Pardoning Muhammad Ali, Who Has No Criminal Record

Muhammad Ali’s career in the ring came to a standstill in 1967 upon the late boxer’s conviction for avoiding the Vietnam Draft by declaring himself a conscientious objector. Four years later, the U.S. Supreme Court reversed that conviction by a unanimous vote; 47 years later, Donald Trump is suggesting he will pardon…

There Is No Evidence Whatsoever That ESPN Is Losing Subscribers Due To Its "Politics" There Is No Evidence Whatsoever That ESPN Is Losing Subscribers Due To Its "Politics"

The Wall Street Journal went deep on money problems in Bristol today in an article titled “How a Weakened ESPN Became Consumed by Politics.” The feature, like many others that have come before, presents as a fact that the Worldwide Leader is hemorrhaging subscribers due to a perceived shift to the left in its sports…

Report: Trump-Signed Alabama Football Caused White House Drama, And Now Nobody Knows Where It Is Report: Trump-Signed Alabama Football Caused White House Drama, And Now Nobody Knows Where It Is

In a performance that had many praising its avant-garde catchphrase stylings, President Trump welcomed the national champion Alabama Crimson Tide football team to the White House last month and proceeded to speak for approximately three hours about, I assume, how he’s actually glad he didn’t win the popular vote in…

Trump Forms Sports Council Featuring Bill Belichick, Lou Ferrigno, And Dr. Oz, For Some Reason Trump Forms Sports Council Featuring Bill Belichick, Lou Ferrigno, And Dr. Oz, For Some Reason

Sports genius Donald Trump has done the inevitable, again. This time, the big lad has put his close personal friend Bill Belichick on an official Presidential council.

Report: Donald Trump Spent Quality Time Last Week Talking Football With Bill Belichick Report: Donald Trump Spent Quality Time Last Week Talking Football With Bill Belichick

In 1993, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen found time between Full House episodes to record an album called I Am the Cute One. Songs include “I Am a Kid,” “I Love to Scream,” and “No One Tells the President What to Do.” The last of those is a celebration of the truth of its title—the president can do whatever he wants, and…

You Can't Bully These Motherfuckers You Can't Bully These Motherfuckers

When I write that CNN politics writer Chris Cillizza is the rankest assbrain in the Western Hemisphere, I am not being nice to him. When I write that God clowned Chris Cillizza before he was born by making him Chris Cillizza instead of a shit-eating maggot, I am being unkind. When I say that Chris Cillizza himself is…
