Saw the base picture crop up multiple places, and then saw the photo of the headline — thought combining them with a little flair would tell the whole story with its irony intact.

We don't have a President.

We don’t have a President. We have a fraud wielding the powers of the Presidency, but he’s no President.

He never was.

When he took the Oath of Office, he was already in violation of it and he had no intention of rectifying that. He had every intention of furthering his misuse & abuse of office, heightening and deepening the corruption and conflicts of interest, and undermining the rule of law, the checks and balances against abuse of power, and anything that could impede his own selfish gain.

He is not a President. He never was.

Resist the encroaching wave of hatred and violence.

It's up to us, folks. All of us.

The @GOP’s increased, incessant drumbeat & incitement of racism, hatred, bigotry, misogyny has solidified into the platform of the party in power. The negative impact to the State of the Nation has been immediate, and to the shame of all US citizens. The Trump GOP is doing its literal damndest to drag this nation back into their personal, paranoid, xenophobic hell...it's now time for all remaining citizens, for all mature and civilized adults, to not only hope but to strive to undo the damage before it sets.

From Alexander Woollcott to "Fake News"

Where does today’s ‘fake news’ come from?

There is no simple answer, but part of it can be traced to the development of journalistic practices and ethics over the course of the 20th century, strictures that the purveyors of ‘fake news’ turn on their heads thanks to technological innovations giving them the ability to make their publications look like real news venues for very little money.

People, we have a problem. A BIGLY problem. Facts are in danger of becoming extinct as we snip and snipe at each other.

A USURPER is about to be enthroned by the Electoral College and it seems there isn't a damn thing we can do about it.

*I am not here to argue how good or bad a candidate Hillary Clinton was/is, and I am not here to argue about which "group" is most responsible for the Trumpocalypse.

Why would (Ras) Putin target a sure loser like Trump?

Former CIA director Michael Morrell claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin controls Donald Trump’s mind.

Rasputin

The new McCarthyism was born when Wikileaks revealed the truth about the leaders of the Democratic Party. The leaked emails showed that the vile Democratic National Committee boss Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her crew of foul-mouthed punks perpetrated election fraud by rigging the Democratic primaries for Hillary Clinton.

What a way to kick off convention week. The next step in the story was the obvious question. Who was Debbie working for? We all know the answer. Debbie worked for Hillary. But that question was never asked in earnest and certainly not answered.

 

The ever-vigilant Clinton machine knew the score. If Hilary’s tied to Debbie, we’re completely screwed.  Those Sanders true believers will Kirk out nonstop for the rest of the convention.

 

Clinton campaign head Robby Mook rushed to the media with an outrageous claim that the Russians hacked the DNC email server to aid the Trump campaign.   This was desperate attempt to divert public attention from the inevitable conclusion that Hillary Clinton is a total slime ball, Bill without the charm.
