To Tweet, Or Not To Tweet?

President Trump’s Tweeting frenzy can be described in so many words like entertaining, defiant and combative. Of course, those not on board with the President may describe his Tweets as insulting, unprofessional and embarrassing. Individuals will generally support or oppose any action the President takes based on popular support. So, the difference of opinions regarding the President’s Tweeting firestorm is not surprising. The real question is, does his Tweeting serve a purpose? Especially when posts are not presidential? In June, Trump published some controversial Tweets about “Morning Joe” talk show hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough saying Brzezinski had “a low… Keep Reading

Breitbart Goes Politically Correct, Fires Reporter For Criticizing Muslims

Times have changed since Steve Bannon left Breitbart News to serve as White House chief strategist. When Bannon was editor-in-chief of the publication, it never shied away from controversy and featured a variety of firebrands on their writing staff. Less than a year later, merely criticizing the Islamic religion can get you a pink slip at Breitbart. Former Breitbart journalist Katie McHugh wrote that “there would be no deadly terror attacks in the U.K. if Muslims didn’t live there” in a Tweet she posted after a terror attack killed seven people and injured 50 others in London on Saturday. It… Keep Reading

The Alt-Right Becomes New Pop Culture Scapegoat Of The Trump Era

Patriots were regularly cast as hate-filled terror threats in television, video games, movies, and media outlets. In the age of President Trump, a new scapegoat du jour has emerged in the alt-right. The plot to a currently unreleased video game, Far Cry 5 shows how the propaganda narratives are shifting in the age of Trump. The game is set in Montana, a well-known hot spot for patriots as well as the home of the alt right’s most infamous provocateur Richard Spencer. The… Keep Reading

Thanks, POTUS, For Breaking-Up The Annual Correspondents’ Circle Jerk

As a newly elected president, Donald Trump was quick to take one of Washington’s institutional pillars down a peg. By snubbing the 2017 annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD), the president deflated what should have been more appropriately called the Sycophants’ Supper. Would that it was the last such supper. For now, the POTUS’s slap to this gathering of sycophants this past weekend will have to do. Like nothing else, the annual Correspondents’ Dinner is a mark of a corrupt politics. It’s a sickening specter, where some of the most pretentious, worthless people in the country—in politics, journalism and entertainment—convene… Keep Reading

When Seeing Might Mean Nothing At All

You have had days like the one I’m having — the kind where you can’t seem to get the image of a rubbery-legged Hillary Clinton collapsing like a theme park Pooh bear with heat stroke into the bowels of a black van– scraping off a shoe as she goes. The Democratic nominee for the president of the United States had been turned into a wilting bean bag, and the grim-faced precision of the secret service didn’t make it any better. It made it far more disturbing; they were obviously accustomed to this pudgy, slack-faced paralysis of hers. (The boss, apparently,… Keep Reading
