In DC, “Yep” is the new “Nope.” Kimmel takes down a lyin’ senator.

We usually devote this page to President Trump and his minions, many of whom have made the Alternative Fact a modern day form of performance art. Today, however, we honor the work of a U.S. senator, the not-so-honorable Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, who, posing as a benign health care reformer, has proved that the art of deception […]

Kill the Bill (Vol. One): Trump and Ryan drop the AHCA ball on the goal line

President Trump couldn’t have been clearer: He and his water carrier in the House, Speaker Paul Ryan, had the votes, and their draconian plan to replace Obamacare was a shoo-in.

Mulvaney mean-splains “compassion.” I got yer “safety net” right heah!

Alternative Facts come in many forms. There’s the “out-and-out lie”, as in, “Three to five million illegal aliens voted on Election Day, robbing me of my popular vote victory.” Then there’s the, “you misunderstood me” dodge, as in, “When I said Obama wire-tapped me in my home, I obviously meant that somebody might have ordered surveillance […]
