Why Do So Many Trump Supporters Still Believe What He Says?

According to some reports Donald Trump's friends are worried about him. They say he's never sounded so agitated, and never looked so bagged.

Which is of course great news, for it suggests that he could be felled by stroke or a heart attack, even before he's impeached or forced to resign.

But what really worries me is the sad state of his supporters.

For so many of them still believe everything he tells them.

Donald Trump and the 2020 Nightmare

Donald Trump has only been in office for five months, but to me and I'm sure many others all over the world it seems longer than that. Much longer.

So you can imagine how I felt when I heard that the orange oaf is already making plans to occupy the Oval Office for a full EIGHT years.

And that I might have to endure his insane behaviour for what might seem like forever. 

For let's face it, this is insanity.

The Abominable Cowardice of Andrew Scheer

This much we know about Andrew Scheer, the man who likes to call himself Stephen Harper Two, or Harper with a smile.

We know he is a serious religious fanatic, who owes Brad Trost his new job.

We know that his political philosophy is more Republican than Canadian.

But who knew he was such an appalling coward?

The Con Bigot Party and the Shame of Kellie Leitch

You might think that Kellie Leitch had embarrassed herself enough. Done what was left of her reputation enough damage.

During the last election, her cultural barbarism show bombed so bad, the stench alone helped bring down the Harper regime.

And the way her campaign for the Con leadership race went down in flames, after all that effort, and all that money, couldn't have been more humiliating.

But it seems that Leitch just can't control herself, and now she's embarrassing herself and her party again.

Is Donald Trump Getting Tired of Playing President?

Donald Trump made his first visit to Camp David on the weekend, no doubt hoping to escape the madding media, and try to pull himself together, after yet another terrible week in office.

A week where he seemed to confirm that he was under investigation, and was seen yelling at TV sets in the White House.

So he really needed a leafy break.

But Camp David has only a one-hole golf course, so Trump did have time to tweet.

Only to reveal once again his compulsive need to compare himself to Obama, and show how desperate he is becoming.

Is Andrew Scheer a Ghastly Con or a Reagan Republican?

We already knew that Andrew Scheer is a sinister religious fanatic, who doesn't believe in women's rights, and believes that gay Canadians are "abhorrent."

We knew that he likes to smile a lot, even when he's talking about child rape and other dirty sex stuff in the House of Commons.

Except when he is in his office working on plans to turn Canada into a theocracy.

But who knew that he was more American than Canadian?

Trump Caesar and Ezra Levant's Rebel Loonies

It's a modern adaptation of Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar. It's being staged in New York's Central Park.

And it's controversial because its Caesar looks a lot like Donald Trump, and his supporters can't stand the sight of their hero being assassinated.

And neither it seems can Ezra Levant.

Jeremy Corbyn and the Politics of Hope

I must admit I'm still enjoying the aftermath of the British election.

Seeing the Cons and their media stooges trying to explain why Jeremy Corbyn is so popular with young people.

After all the Corbyn haters did to try to destroy him.

And failing in an epic manner, even though the answer is so simple.

Isn't It Time To Ask What's Wrong With Donald Trump?

You can see the fear in Donald Trump's piggy eyes. You can smell his desperation.

After somebody shot some Republican congressmen, he tried so hard to look and sound like a president. 

But that new found restraint only lasted for about 48-hours.

Before his madness erupted again.

LGBT Rights and the Trudeau Legacy

After fighting for years for their human rights, and having to endure the most disgusting discrimination and violence, this was a good week for transgendered Canadians.

A few days ago at a ceremony to mark Pride Month, they saw their flag raised on Parliament Hill for the first time.

And yesterday they finally got their transgender bill of rights. 

Transgender Canadians will soon have the same human rights protections as everyone else, after the government's attempt to add gender identity to the Canadian Human Rights Act passed in the Senate Thursday afternoon.

And for both of those things they can thank Justin Trudeau.
