President Grifter thinks you’re a sucker and loser for paying more than $750 in taxes.

It’s Monday again. Hope you were able to enjoy your weekend, because this week (and the next and the next and the next and …) will be batshit insane. Take a little time to paint your nails and go to the park:

Political Crap

This weekend, two huge stories broke:

1. As predicted, President Turdwattles nominated Amy Coney Barrett for Justice Ginsburg’s spot on the Supreme Court. And the GOP is going to shove through this nomination. It’s disgusting, it’s infuriating, it is BEYOND hypocritical and if the Republicans work together– which it is expected they will — it’s going to happen and it very well might happen before the election.

She is very likely to be the vote that overturns Roe v. Wade, she will certainly end the Affordable Care Act, and there is the terrifying possibility that if the election goes to the Supreme Court for any reason, she’ll hand it to President Treason.


Right now, the Judiciary Committee is scheduling hearings for next week, with an eye for holding a vote on her nomination on October 26 — one week before the fucking election. I will do my best to cover the hearings. Pray for my liver.

Will the Democrats in the senate do everything they can to slow this nomination so that it can’t be voted on before November 3? One prays. It might be the single most important thing to preventing this monster from stealing an election. (Well, that and all of us voting, preferably in person and preferably early.) Will voters hold this travesty against Republican senators? I certainly fucking hope so. It might be the one bright spot from this entire nightmare.

2. The Failing New York Times got a hold of President Debtor’s taxes, and … it is exactly what we thought: he’s not a billionaire, in fact, he owes hundreds of millions of dollars — if not over $1 billion — all of which will be coming due in the next couple of years; he didn’t pay ANY taxes for 10 of the past 15 years; and in both 2016 and 2017, this lying little bitch only paid $750 in taxes.

$750! Somehow it is worse than if he just paid nothing!

Also, he’s under audit for possibly receiving a $72.9 million refund he didn’t earn. Also, it sure looks like he’s paying Ivanka as a “consultant” and then writing her salary off on his taxes to the tune of three-quarters of a million dollars. Also, he wrote off $70,000 worth of hair styling. 

Reminder: teachers are allowed to write off a maximum of $250 worth of supplies that they purchase themselves.

The report did not find any direct evidence of loans or money coming in from Russian sources — that would’t be reported on the returns. But it did shed some light on his relationship with the Russian oligarch Agalarov family, who underwrote the Miss Universe pageant when he owned it, and who helped set up the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Dummy Jr., Jared, and the Russians before the 2016 election. It’s fishy as all getout.

Will this change any minds? I mean, probably not. I have some relatives who I am sure are impressed that he was able to get away with this, instead of outraged that they’ve paid their fair share of taxes their entire lives, only to have this criminal steal from the military, teachers, our infrastructure, first responders, our health care system, our country in general. But will this win him any voters who weren’t sure who they were going to vote for before this came out? LOL, GOD, I HOPE NOT. HOW STUPID WOULD YOU HAVE TO BE?

Also, don’t forget: he’s desperate to stay in office, and this is just one of many reasons why he will do anything to steal the election.

In other political news:

The Rock endorsed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris:

As did former Pennsylvania governor and Director of Homeland Security and noted Republican Tom Ridge. AND HE SEEMS PISSED:

Many of us remember when President George W. Bush, with a megaphone in hand, stood on the rubble in lower Manhattan and told his fellow citizens and the world that those responsible for the brutal carnage of 9/11 would be held accountable. His remarks unified the country, and his appearance on the mound at Yankee Stadium days later put an exclamation point on the message that America was resilient and would overcome.

Compare and contrast that with the crisis of today. Imagine the impact of President Trump traveling to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention back in February, and talking plainly about the challenge Mother Nature intended to throw at us, and how this country, working together, public and private sector, would confront it with all the fortitude and resources we could bring to bear. Then imagine him meeting with journalists the next day, appearing with a face mask, and calmly walking through the steps that his fellow citizens could and should take to do their part to combat this new challenge. Imagine the difference in attitude and outcomes. Perhaps I have more trust in Americans being able to handle the truth than the president.

Donald Trump has proven over these last four years he is incapable of such leadership. It is not within him. He lacks the empathy, integrity, intellect, and maturity to lead. He sows division along political, racial, and religious lines. And he routinely dismisses the opinions of experts who know far more about the subject at hand than he does — intelligence, military, and public health. Our country has paid dearly in lives lost, social unrest, economic hardship, and our standing in the world.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced a Veep reunion to raise money for the Democratic party in Wisconsin:

Former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale had to be hospitalized after his wife reported to the police that he was threatening to kill himself. Here’s hoping he receives the help he needs.
Suicide Prevention Hotline: 24 hours a day, call 1-800-273-8255

And close to home: The drive-in at Sawyer Yards will be showing RBG on October 11.

It’s 36 days until Election Day; 15 days until early voting begins in Texas (unless the GOP ratfuckers convince the Texas Supreme Court to delay it).

Going Viral

Dr. Fauci says that America is “not in a good place” in regards to the virus. OH? So, one million deaths worldwide, 200,000 American deaths, and 40,000 to 50,000 new cases EVERY DAY, isn’t a “good place?” Funny. I remember someone telling me that it was all going to go away very soon, “like a miracle.”

Meanwhile. Dr. Redfield, the head of the CDC said that President Herd Mentality’s new COVID advisor, Dr. Scott Atlas, is a liar.

“Everything he says is false,” Redfield said during a phone call made in public on a commercial airline and overheard by NBC News.

And file this under “Things That Make Therese Go Into a Dark Closet and Scream”: The Department of Health and Human Services has taken $300 million in taxpayer money to create a “Defeat Despair” ad campaign featuring administration officials and celebrities including Dennis Quaid discussing the White House’s response to the virus. And, obviously, the ads are expected to air before the election.

10 current and former health officials told POLITICO that they have concerns about the campaign’s scope, goals and even how it has been funded — by pulling money out of health agencies like the Centers for Disease Control that are in the midst of fighting the pandemic, rather than working with lawmakers to set up a brand-new advertising effort with congressional oversight, or drawing on substantial internal resources and expertise in running health-related public service campaigns.

“CDC hasn’t yet done an awareness campaign about Covid guidelines — but they are going to pay for a campaign about how to get rid of our despair? Run by political appointees in the press shop? Right before an election?” said Josh Peck, a former HHS official who oversaw the Obama administration’s advertising campaign for

“It’s like every red flag I could dream of,” Peck added.

Dennis Quaid is SO MAD you think this is political, y’all.

Tucker Carlson had an idiot on his show who credited a vaccine that hasn’t been created yet for the falling COVID death rates. Because of course he did.

Saturday Night Live is going to have a live studio audience when they return this weekend. Here are the safety protocols they have put into place. Good luck, kids and stay safe!

The Lord of the Rings and Cowboy Bebop are set to resume production in New Zealand.

Around the World in 80 Days has resumed production in Romania.

Someone at Comedy Central deserves a raise:

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s Rachel Bloom gave birth at the beginning of the pandemic here in the States, just as her friend and collaborator Adam Schlesinger was dying from the disease and the whole thing has made her think about mortality in general, as it would.

In good news, the Actors Fund Home in New Jersey has managed to control the virus, after losing 10 residents.

Three crew members on the set of Scream have tested positive for COVID-19, but they’re not shutting down production.

A vaccine may cost half a million shark lives. Of course, the virus has already cost one million human lives, so …

All Other TV News

All 45 seasons of Saturday Night Live will be available on Peacock on Thursday.

Harry and Meghan are not making another Keeping up with the Kardashians with Netflix, but instead a “tasteful” series about their philanthropic work. BOO. BORING.

Netflix has responded to the Republican senators’ concerns about The Three-Body Problem adaptation and was like, “Yeah, that ain’t it, guys.”

“Mr. Liu is the author of the book – The Three-Body Problem – not the creator of this show,” Garfield added. “We do not agree with his comments, which are entirely unrelated to his book or this Netflix show.”

Tyra Banks knows she goofed, so back up already.

Here’s the backstory to how the Game of Thrones guys got the Battle of Blackwater filmed, though, for my money, the Battle of the Bastards was much more of an accomplishment. (No one asked.) More interesting is the discussion of Cersei and her behavior in the episode:

“I remember talking to Lena and saying, ‘Cersei is basically acting like the drunk aunt at a wedding. It’s like she’s had a few too many drinks and can’t control her mouth.’ She was like, ‘I know exactly what you mean.’”

Your first look at the new Batwoman:

Horror fans with Rokus: Cinedigm and Bloody Disgusting are launching a free Roku horror channel just in time for Halloween.

Noah Hawley, the genius who gave us Fargo and Legion, wanted to do an Alien TV series but Fox was like, “Thanks but nah.”

Oh, wow. So, Nene Leakes is no longer a Real Housewife. Last night Andy Cohen had Wendy Williams on as a guest on Watch What Happens Live.

Ms. Leakes had some thoughts:

I mean, calling Andy Cohen a racist is one way to never be invited to return as a Housewife …

And in other Real Housewife news, Caitlyn Jenner would like to be one.

Fans of Watchmen have certainly heard of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, but this column makes a strong case that Lindelof also owes some thanks to another comic great whose name is lost in all of this, Darwyn Cooke.

A reminder that Aya Cash is often the best thing in everything she is in.

Yeah, I don’t know, Carole Baskin …


Get all better soon, Chrissy Teigen!

Congratulations, Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara and baby River! (~Sniff~ Did it just get dusty in here all of a sudden?)
