Executive Disorder: Trump’s Immigration Chaos Will Have Lasting Damage On His Presidency

Executive Disorder: Trump’s Immigration Chaos Will Have Lasting Damage On His Presidency

On Friday, Donald Trump signed an executive order banning travel for nationals from seven Muslim majority countries. The order conveniently left out several countries that Trump did business with, including Saudi Arabia, which always seems to come out unscathed despite being the primary support behind 9/11. At this point, Saudi Arabia is like one of the guests at Westworld, doing damage just for fun, knowing that it is invincible and  that other countries will be the ones to feel the effect of its malfeasance. Saudi Arabia could set the White House on…

Obama Was Switched Out For Trump, But Be Careful Not To Change Yourself

Obama Was Switched Out For Trump, But Be Careful Not To Change Yourself

On January 20th, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, and the first president to have appeared multiple times on WrestleMania. Trump gave an inaugural address with a theme of “America First,” which proved surprisingly controversial given that he was elected president of America. If he was elected president of Senegal and gave a speech preaching “America First,” I could see people getting upset. But when MSNBC says his speech had a “Hitlerian background,” it makes you think Trump could have read aloud from Green Eggs…

Handing Out Election Oscars

Handing Out Election Oscars

After this past Sunday’s Golden Globes and subsequent Golden Globes backlash, it seems like a good time to hand out our own awards for performances in the 2016 Election. Because really, no movie can compete with this past year’s political cycle. Manchester By The Sea was not as depressing, La La Land was not dreamier, Hacksaw Ridge did not have as much action, Florence Foster Jenkins did not have a woman as deluded, and Deadpool did not have a man as big of a jackass than what we just experienced…

It’s Good That California Farmers Are Buying Machines To Replace Migrant Workers

It’s Good That California Farmers Are Buying Machines To Replace Migrant Workers

A California farmer, worried that Trump will crack down on illegal immigration, reportedly invested more than $600,000 in machinery in order to mitigate the uncertainty around his illegal labor supply. Another farmer said that he purchased three new almond sweepers to cope with both Trump’s election as well as new regulations granting farm laborers overtime. Because of the anticipated increase in costs, farmers are outraged and are “calling on congressional representatives to educate the president-elect on the workforce it takes to feed the country.” But this rhetoric is all nonsense. Trump’s threats, as well…

2016 Was Not The Worst Year Ever

2016 Was Not The Worst Year Ever

While well-adjusted celebrators spent New Years Eve trying to find similarly desperate people to kiss, many other people made like Mariah Carey and used the holiday as a tool for complaining. It seems like half of the internet was tweeting about how 2016 was the worst year ever. The cries of the awfulness of 2016 were supported by the irrefutable evidence that (a) Trump was elected president and (b) a number of celebrities died. But the fact that a bunch of celebrities passed away is not a result of some 2016 curse, it’s a result…

What The Media Would Look Like If Democrats Were Dogs and Republicans Were Cats

What The Media Would Look Like If Democrats Were Dogs and Republicans Were Cats

If this election proved anything, it’s that Americans are becoming more and more partisan. Issues don’t matter, what matters is that the other side is wrong. Always. It’s even been proven that our minds change based on who the idea is associated with. We’ve already covered how the media calls out Trump for things they would praise Hillary for. And it seems Republicans would vote against sunshine if Obama came out in favor of it. If you go a left-leaning media site and then a right-wing media site, you’ll realize that…

Hope Is Not Political

Hope Is Not Political

Michelle Obama is making headlines for her Oprah sit-down interview, during which she stated that America is “feeling what not having hope feels like.” The statement appears related to the election of Donald Trump, which somehow signaled the end of hope to Michelle Obama. Because what does a former first lady, in line for a multi-million dollar book deal, with a Harvard-bound daughter, have to be hopeful about? In a matter of weeks, she’s going to have to leave her mansion and move in to a different mansion – the whole scene is…

Online Shopping Has Ruined Christmas Gifts

Online Shopping Has Ruined Christmas Gifts

The Holiday Season is upon us, which means that we all have to purchase useless goods manufactured in CHYNA (it’s new official name) to give to the loved ones in our lives…who gave us presents last year. Some gift giving is easy. You can buy your alcoholic secretary a bottle of wine and call it a day. The garbage men can get new sets of gloves to prevent paper cuts as they dispose of all the thrown out “Stronger Together” yard signs. But then there are the people in your life…

The Media Would Call Trump’s “Blunders” Hillary’s Victories

The Media Would Call Trump’s “Blunders” Hillary’s Victories

Trump faced media criticism this week for saving jobs and taking a phone call from a long-time U.S. ally. I’m sure smarter people than I could set forth a compelling argument as to why the deal with Carrier sets a dangerous precedent, or how formalizing relations with Taiwan is not in the best interest of America. But I’m even more sure that if Hillary Clinton was doing these things, the media would be dressing her up in a green pantsuit so that she could replace Andrew Jackson on the twenty dollar bill. Mainstream…

Hillary Joining The Recount Confirms She’s A Bigger Baby Than Trump

Hillary Joining The Recount Confirms She’s A Bigger Baby Than Trump

Hillary Clinton posted a message on her Facebook page stating that her camp would be participating in the recounts in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. While the Clinton campaign acknowledge that there was no “actionable evidence of hacking,” the campaign will still participate in Jill Stein’s recount “to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides.” Hillary’s response is a far cry from her pre-election stance, back when she was heavily favored and worried Trump might claim the election was rigged. Back then Trump’s comments were viewed…
