Ten years ago, Ethan Berlin and I started making a cartoon called “The Adventures of Larry Winters.” This makes me laugh so hard. We had to take a few down, because they were way over the top.
The morbidly obese bullies Rush Limbaugh and Chris Christie attended Donald Trump’s Christmas party at the White House. When Limbaugh and Christie were shown the Treaty Room they both asked, “Where are the treats?”
Asked what he thought of the West Wing and the East Wing, Christie said, “I prefer my wings with a side of Blue Cheese.”
Blaming 2016 on Russian disinformation is American disinformation. The Republican controlled Senate Intelligence Committee released a report today outlining just how deep Russian interference in the 2016 election ran.
Entitled “The IRA, Social Media and Political Polarization in
the United States, 2012-2018″ the report zeroes in on Russia’s Internet Research Association which used Google, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to promote Donald Trump’s candidacy.

These are the “choice” words Nancy Pelosi deployed yesterday to “stand up” to Trump: “Mr. President,” she said, “please don’t characterize the strength that I bring to this meeting as the leader of the House Democrats, who just won a big victory.”
Really? This was her Aaron Sorkin moment? Have we set the bar that low for Democrats? What does she even mean? I had to read those words five times before I understood what Pelosi was trying to convey.
I saw the video and it made no sense.
If Pelosi actually stood for something, she would have stood up to Trump clearly. That was pathetic. In order to stand up to a fascist, which Trump is, Pelosi must offer the country an alternative. Not inarticulate word salad.
Trump will roll over all of us because he believes in something, and our Democratic leadership does not. Pelosi doesn’t get credit for stopping the wall. This is about Medicare For All. If you can’t demonize health insurance companies the same way Trump demonizes that caravan, then you are just as responsible for the fall of our republic as Trump is.
Watching Pelosi and Schumer with Trump yesterday shouldn’t make me feel like I’m rooting for my five-year-old’s soccer team. You don’t get a trophy just for kicking the ball back to Donald, Nancy. Speak clearly. Say something. Believe in something. Or step aside.
Standing up to Trump is a fool’s errand, offer Americans an alternative to rally behind.
