The Latest Trump Lie

On Sept. 16, Donald Trump finally acknowledged what all have known for years, that President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Trump announced this in a heavily teased and foreshadowed event intended to promote one of his hotels, and of course the announcement received breathless and extensive news coverage. Trump not apologize for being one of the most vigorous proponents…

Donald Trump Does Not Know What “Sacrifice” Means

One of the most moving speeches of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last week was a speech given by Khizr Khan, the bereaved father of American Army Captain Humayun Khan who died in Iraq; the speech was given with his wife Ghazala by his side. In Khan’s speech, he said, addressing Presidential candidate Donald Trump, “You have sacrificed nothing and no one.” Khan,…

Clinton, Sanders And Math

To all the people who claim the presidential election between Clinton and Sanders was “rigged”: Hillary Clinton received 15,805,136 votes during the primary election cycle. Bernie Sanders received 12,029,699 votes during the primary election cycle. Clinton received about 3,700,000 more votes than Sanders. This means that more people voted for Clinton than Sanders.

People — mostly broadcast journalists — who have been praising Presidential Candidate Donald Trump for saying “LGBTQ” at his nomination acceptance speech, those people need to stop praising him.

This time, the terrorist targeted [the]…

Donald Trump Is Irrational

Trump is dreadful and irrational. He has repeatedly criticized Hillary Clinton for her vote to support the war in Iraq (based on lies from a Bush administration whose goal was, as we all know now, to try to take control of Iraqi oil). He has claimed that her vote represents “bad judgment,” and that her bad judgment is a reason…

Donald Trump Botches Vice Presidential Pick Announcement

Donald Trump has demonstrated his inability to manage his announcement of his vice presidential pick. It is really amazing. On Thursday, many media sources reported that Pence had been chosen. Then, Trump said he would wait to make his announcement until the weekend, because of the attack in Nice, France on Thursday night. However, on Thursday evening, Trump called into…

Donald Trump, A Master Of The Obvious

My God, Donald Trump must be the most “mentally limited” candidate ever to run for the United States presidency. I offer the following as evidence. After the attack on the airport in Istanbul, Trump couldn’t say anything more than the obvious: “Many people killed,” he said. Yes, many people were killed. He went on, saying, “It’s bad.” Yes, it is…

Donald Trump’s Proposed Ban on Muslims, Then On People From “Terror States”

In December 2015, Donald Trump called for a temporary but “total and complete ban on Muslims coming into the United States.” He said that this ban would be in place “until United States representatives figure out what is going on.” This sounded absurd on its face. He did not say whether or not he was referring only to refugees, or referring…
