Diner

Following DHS chief Kirstjen Nielsen being heckled out of a Mexican restaurant by protesters days earlier, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the first Trump official to be ejected from a restaurant by the owner herself. 

Reports of Sanders being 86’d from Virginia’s Red Hen restaurant as if she were the long lost sister to SNL’s Butabi brothers has led the national conversation to question if this reaction is acceptable. Not only is it acceptable, it’s needed.

Fortress

Nearly two months into a monstrous federal policy which separates migrant parents from their children at the southern border, the Department of Homeland Security announced it has now placed 2,000 children in facilities across the country.

Leave the porch light on for Father Merrin and Father Karras, because the Trump administration has declared war on America’s very soul.

Broken Promise

With just days before the May 12th deadline to re-certify the Iran nuclear deal, President Trump announced to the world that the United States would withdraw from the deal altogether. If Trump’s goal was to make the U.S. and its allies less safe, potentially destabilize the Middle East and ignite a nuclear arms race; go ahead and find an aircraft carrier to hang that “Mission Accomplished” banner now!

A New Hope

In January, two people were killed and 18 were injured during a school shooting in Benton, Kentucky. The social media response was tepid at best; signs of a public finally exhausted after years of reacting to almost-daily tragedies. That changed last Wednesday.

Under Siege

With the release of former Trump transition team member Rep. Devin Nunes’ memo, President Trump and House Republicans intensified their attacks against our nation’s institutions as if they were attempting to breach the fortress of Hornburg in the battle of Helm’s Deep.

Nunes, the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, previously won the heart of the Trump White House last March when he revealed intel allegedly showing the Trump campaign had been (unjustly) under surveillance (which it didn’t). It would later be revealed Nunes received his “evidence” from the Trump White House itself. Since the election, Nunes has proven to be Trump’s most loyal subordinate… the Wormtongue of Congress.

Port of Hate

Last June, CNN’s Jim Acosta got into a heated discussion with White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller over Trump’s support of an immigration policy which rewarded those who spoke English. Acosta remarked:

“It sounds like you’re trying to engineer the racial and ethnic flow of people into this country.”

Although the White House denied it at the time, Acosta nailed it.

Judge Dredd

GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has multiple credible accusations of sexual misconduct leveled against him, including the molestation of a 14 year-old girl when he was 32. So, why has the President and the Republican Party endorsed this vile excuse for a human being’s candidacy?

To ensure America’s middle class pay for a tax cut for the top 1%.
