The Trump Dump: The Depths of a Shallow Man

Good story that eXposes both his shallowness and lack of character his entire life.

THE SHINBONE STAR

The most recent expose of Trumpco deceit, the one from the New York Times that documented real estate fraud and implicated golden girl Ivanka, adds more than just another prospective charge to the Trump rap sheet.

If not impeachment-worthy, the New York state courts now have indictable, non-pardonable crimes to pursue ranging from money laundering to abuse of the tax canon, non-profit regulations, as well as money-laundering and real estate fraud.

And while the investigative sniffers have uncovered many tasty truffles, the treasures unearthed are but an amuse-bouche in the seven course banquet of criminality that will be revealed once the testimony of Trump’s lawyer and long-time treasurer is detailed.

The Presidential limo could take Trump directly from Joe Biden’s inauguration to a Riker’s Island cell.

For the indictment-free present, the latest scandal pounds home the central theme of Trump’s life — he is himself a fraud. The scope of…

APPROVAL ALERT AT PRESS TIME:
Gallup Poll: 44% — up from 43% last week

Welcome to Trumplandia, a place where with a bit of wit and snark, we keep the world caught up on all of the tasty Nuggets-O-Trump you may have heard about but were too busy to care. Because most of this minutia occurs just below the massive headlines about the POTUS, it’s in a land of its own. Here, an infusion of social media, video clips and print media meld with our outdated political views to make more delicious “Fake News” about our Commander-in-Chief.

So just like the president, we start it all with a little tweet like this:

Oh Ivanka, How I Love You

THE SHINBONE STAR

Daddy. Oh Daddy!

A colleague at The Shinbone Star recently shared a Omarosa Manigault Newman story that the fiery street fighter herself shared with several TV personalities about Donald Trump’s odd relationship with daughter Ivanka.  It may already be in her book.

In this chapter of the Ode to Omarosa’s Gall, we find Donald Trump in the White House acting like a pervert who fondles the mother of his grandchildren in front of the help.

Omarosa is the former reality TV star-of-sorts who worked for Trump both on and off camera. In the White House, she was the highest ranking African-American woman before she was either asked to leave, heavily escorted out the door or dragged away kicking and screaming by Chief of Staff John Kelly, depending on which story you believe.

Omarosa told TV personality Bill Maher that Trump does everything but the horizontal mambo with Ivanka all the…

With the Death Star in doubt, it’s time to be very afraid

They are coming.

THE SHINBONE STAR

With the ever present threat of attacks against Earth by hostile aliens every time the twit running the Trumpleforeskin movement beams an insulting tweet, now is not the time to be meddling with America’s Space Force.

The slaughter could be incalculable if Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson gets sacked from Space Force without ever deploying a single death star. What kind of Space Force doesn’t have a death star? Even Latvia is considering building one.

“We are going to have a Space Force,” Trump said in Washington D.C. last August amid snickers and guffaws by his generals. “An Air Force and a Space Force. Separate, but equal.”

It is reported in some circles that Wilson not only doesn’t have a death star, she doesn’t even want one. She thinks Space Force is stupid, duplicitous and costs too much. Her job is administering the largest air force in the…

The Young and the Beautiful: Escape to New York

Good one, can’t wait for next installment.

It’s been a while since we heard from our Young and Beautiful couple, Jerry and Ivy. Despite rumors that Ivy was not happy that her father chose Beer Bong Brett to serve on the Supreme Tribunal, she kept her silence and stayed out of the spotlight while Lady Melania went to Africa to play Rich White Lady. But recent developments may thrust Ivy onto the world stage. Let us eavesdrop on our golden couple, who have finally left the Scott Pruitt Soundproof Room to accept a message from a Royal Courier.

logoIvy: Thank heaven we’re finally out of that damn soundproof room. I don’t understand why Daddy wouldn’t let me go to the hearings for Beer Bong Brett. It’s not like I’d go into a room alone with him. You didn’t go to any of those wild parties when you were at Harvard, did you?

Don’t Make Brett Kavanaugh The Poster Boy For Ignominious Defeat

Darn right

THE SHINBONE STAR

To keep kicking the Kavanaugh can down the road is just what President Donald Trump’s emerging November election game plan has in mind.

It is doubtful he had a plan before Kavanaugh was nominated. For the first time in Trump’s administration he seemed flummoxed when brave women came forward to tell their stories. He actually kept his abrasive mouth shut until Kavanaugh’s appointment was assured. You better believe that somebody told him to chill, he really isn’t that bright.

And that’s why it is best to let the Kavanaugh matter go. The Republicans seem to have a functional plan. They know nothing reinforces defeat like crying over spilled milk, especially when it’s a knee-jerk reaction to never having a chance to win in the first place. Kavanaugh’s appointment does just that.

Trump doesn’t know much, but he knows street fighting and the Democrats don’t. The nomination process was like watching…

Scary times indeed, Mr. Trump

THE SHINBONE STAR

Women’s march in Washington D.C., 2017. — Carolyn Cole/Los Angeles Times/TNS

Dear Mr. Trump: (Sorry if I offend you by not addressing you as president, but I’m pretty sure you’re not even a reasonable facsimile.)

I heard you on the TV the other day saying how it’s a “scary time to be a young man in America” and I was thinking to myself, “fake news!” It’s always a good time to be a man in America! And then I scolded myself for being so dismissive of your great words and decided to re-educate myself.

As I was surfing the world wide web, I came across so many facts. Like, how degrading it must have been to work and not keep your earnings or to never be able to have property you owned in your name. That is, until 1839 when you were able to finally have that property title in your name…

The sad truth: Republicans just don’t care about attempted rape

THE SHINBONE STAR

Sen. Lindsey Graham launches into a tirade against Democrats while announcing his support for a man accused of attempted rape. — WIN MCNAMEE/GETTY IMAGE

A seat on the the United States Supreme Court has never been an elected position — until now.

Maybe you’ve been in a coma or sequestered in a cave for the last month or so, but there’s a fierce battle going on for Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be elected to the court. A seat on the Supreme Court has historically been a lifetime appointment after confirmation by the Senate. No longer.

When Dr. Christine Blasey Ford courageously stepped forward despite harassment and death threats to tell the world that Kavanaugh tried to rape her at a party when both were teenagers, the political scene became polarized.

Hell, those cavalier Republican men on the Senate Judiciary Committee even agreed to bring in — GASP — a woman…
