Just. a few of the telling tales.

Jack Hassard: Trump's Outrageous War on Science

  • " The Trump administration always sides with wealthy corporations over working Americans. His administration has broken every promisehe made to the middle class about increasing wages, protecting health care, and cutting taxes.

  • Trump is also completely ineffective at passing a legislative agenda. Instead of working on fixing the issues families face every day, Trump spends his time ranting on Twitter and spending taxpayer money to promote his own businesses.


Trump rambled bizarrely about how light bulbs make him "look orange."


He is tweeting that China would prefer it if a Democrat defeats him in 2020, because that Democrat would allow China to keep ripping us off.

President Donald Trump, in his umpteenth tweet about clear-skied Alabama as Hurricane Dorian roared through the Carolinas, argued on Friday that the press was unfairly "fixated" on his erroneous claims that Alabama had almost certainly been in the path of danger.

Trump And The Smoke And Mirrors Presidency Rantt Rundown, Day 903 of Trump's presidency Today's top stories:

Donald Trump is the greatest con man in American history. That's been established by his career and further confirmed by his presidency. As a businessman, Trump convinced the American people he was self-made and successful while he was losing billions of dollars, taking his companies bankrupt six times, and inheriting $413 million from his father.
