Inspection- There is NO Such Thing as 'Fake News'

If it is news, it’s not fake. News is a measurable quantity. The two terms are mutually exclusive, but together not as clever as some seem to think. In fact those who use it the most, use it frequently, are often purveyors of what some call “fake news.”

Trump? An "innocent" man? Hah! And BILLY JOEL? Rolling in the floor LAUGHING!

Trump? An innocent man? Hah!

INDEED, a truly “innocent” man- and a man with “NOTHING to hide” - would “CLEARLY NOT”:

Poor & Middle Class "GOP" Voters: Exactly WHAT PLANET are you living on?

Anyone with a remote sense of intellect AND honesty can CLEARLY see, AND concede, that the “economic interests" of “the 99%” - and especially those within the “bottom 50%” of incomes, in America, are CLEARLY and ONLY served by the political platform and legislative agenda of the DEMOCRATS.

YES there was MASSIVE COLLUSION

Trump Throws a Rod, Cowen Burns Out a Piston: Stormy Kicks Both of Their Asses

A good day in court for justice. Judge Kimba Wood (originally a Reagan judicial appointee) seems to be taking no BS from the right's lawyer surrogates. This is how things are going in the current pit stop at the Trump 6900 International.

"Do we look like guys who need hookers?”

YES !

Inspection- Boris and Natasha Politics

Meet Boris and Natasha, two dimensional cartoon characters with the usual one dimensional personalities that cartoon characters had. To be honest: content-wise, Boris and Natasha were closer to three dimensional than many cartoon characters back then. You knew exactly what Yogi was going to do, or Astro the dog, Tom and Jerry.
