Fox News’s ‘The Five’ Piles on Hillary (plus Tweets)

Well, the inevitable happened. My head exploded while watching Fox News‘s ‘The Five’ again today. Why? Well they, of course, used Hillary Clinton’s appearance on the Grammy’s to have a segment criticizing her. You’d think she was posting embarrassing Tweets every day or something. For most of the segment the words “Hillary’s Hypocrisy” were in the... read more

Trump Puts 30% Tariff on Solar Imports (plus Tweets)

US Farmers Support Trump as He Screws Them (plus Tweets)

On 8 January Donald Trump sent out three tweets about his latest speech to his base. That day, he spoke at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s convention in Nashville, Tennessee. Most of those in attendance support him strongly, but why? What exactly is Trump doing for his country’s farmers? As far as I can tell, he’s royally screwing them. Trump’s speech (video here) covered the... read more
