Trump’s Malarkey Machine

Years ago comedian Bill Maher still offered the best description of Donald Trump to date when Maher said, “He’s a bullshit artist.” On the level Trump is now playing you can’t do it all by yourself. You need enablers and reinforcements if you want to be a world class liar. He has Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee-Sanders on his payroll.

Another Day; Another Crook

I’m afraid that Wednesday will be typical of what the future holds during a Trump administration: more bad news per day than I can possibly cover in one article. I am choosing to concentrate on the nomination of Steven Mnuchin to be the Secretary of the Treasury. Let’s explore.   Continue reading Another Day; Another Crook
