There’s one thing I can say about the xenophobic, racist, sexist Trump train: It’s never late. Speaking for the first time since Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school, President Trump expressed his sympathy and regret and…
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, also known as Sarah Palin’s play cousin, continues her “I just want to be loved tour” in which she attends events and tries to prove that she actually became the Education Secretary on merit and not because she’s the wife to a very wealthy man.
Before I get started, I need y’all to applaud my genius at being able to pick the perfect header image from Getty to go with every story I write about this annoying moron named Donald Trump.

I would like to first give a shoutout to Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s unwavering support of Donald Trump. If there was anyone who epitomizes what Tammy Wynette meant when she sang “Stand By Your Man,” Sanders is it. Nothing this president has done is indefensible in her book.
