No, this interview with President Brain Leak was not a scene scrapped by ‘Veep.’ Believe me, I checked.

It’s Tuesday and everything is still completely insane. Hello!

Here is a video of cute bunny kisses:

I don’t know who in the White House is giving the green light to these interviews with President Terrific Brain, but whoever you are, WELCOME TO THE RESISTANCE, MY FRIEND.

Yesterday, HBO aired an interview Axios reporter Johnathan Swan had with the Mensa Champion-in-Chief, and it was brutal. Swan did not ask any gotcha questions and he did not twist or otherwise manipulate any of the answers. But he did fact check him on the spot and allowed President Spray Tan to hang himself with his own ignorance. It’s stunning (also stunning: that I can continue to be stunned). You can watch the entire interview below:

If you don’t have 37 minutes to watch the whole thing, here are some astonishing moments:

The time when he waved meaningless graphs around claiming that they proved everything is FINE here in regards to the virus:

The time he said “It is what it is” about tens of thousands of dead Americans:

The time he wishes an arrested sex trafficker “well” AGAIN:

The time he said he hasn’t confronted Russia about putting bounties on AMERICAN SOLDIERS’ HEADS:

And finally, the time he says he has done more for Black people than John Lewis:

I demand that Johnathan Swan give a MasterClass on how to interview this dipshit. Maggie Haberman and Chuck Todd should be the first forced to take it.

Election Day is 91 days away but remember: early voting is available in most states, and be sure to look into the possibility of mail-in voting where you live. Just be sure to mail in your ballot early since this piece of shit is trying to destroy the post office so as to disenfranchise you.


The Worst President of all time called Nevada passing a law to allow mail-in voting an “illegal coup” and is threatening to sue the state to stop it. 1. States set their own election laws, so fuck off with that noise. 2. He pretty much gives away the game by saying that making it easier for people to vote (especially during a deadly pandemic) will make it “impossible for Republicans to win,” but, 3. a “coup?” I never cease to be amazed by his relentless projection.


Oh hey, another journalist who traveled with the President has tested positive.

Fear the Walking Dead will resume production this month; The Walking Dead next month. OK.

When you’ve pissed off people in Longview, Texas, Gov. Abbott and President Dipshit, you might be in trouble.

The Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Cardinals had to cancel their “Field of Dreams” game in Iowa because 13 CARDINALS tested positive.


Odell Beckham (no relation) is calling for the cancellation of the 2020-2021 NFL season. GEE, WHY?

The Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes has been canceled for 2020. The holidays are going to be grim this year, brace yourselves accordingly.

Meanwhile: “I felt safer going to Disney than going to the grocery store, to be honest.”

We’re all going to die.
