Not able to just let it go, the aftermath of "The Infrastructure Shakedown" was even more of a dumpster fire. Cory and Sean talk about Trump's a bizarre, aggressive 36-hour campaign to prove how calm he was, while he was attacking Speaker Nancy Pelosi. And due to an oversight, Sean never got to expand on his views on impeachment in the last episode, so we remedy that. Bonus: a senator said these words, "...urinate or get off the po... Read more

Infrastructure is supposed to be boring... But not with this dumpster fire of an administration.

Trump hopes we don't go to war with Iran... Cory and Sean talk about how he sounds more like an old man on his porch than a President. Worth noting: he's on his porch when he says it. Also... Trump's merit-based immigration plan lacks merit, and energy. Trump and Republicans think social media is out to get them, while Ted Cruz thinks it might be space pirates. Trump's response to the anti-choice laws is a continuation of his ignor... Read more

Trump Junior has been subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee - the Republican led one - and Trump is very surprised because his son is a good boy; Cory and Sean discuss how "The Father" is reacting to that. Also, Trump accuses the Obama administration of letting China get away with "murder;" that's an interesting thing to say considering Khashoggi.

Russian President Vladimir Putin smiled about meddling in the 2016 election on a call with Trump, who seemed delighted to tell the story next to the Slovak Prime Minister, which is awkward. And, Attorney General William Barr must be enjoying all this pain and humiliation, because like Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark he's affected nothing but his role in the dumpster fire…

Trump spoke at an NRA event... Nuff said? Cory navigates across a sea of nonsensical claims and rambling proclamations about guns, treaties and the second amendment. And what we can expect from Trump's 2020 campaign rhetoric. The speech was just a giant mess of a dumpster fire...

Trump can’t even do a simple, lay-up White House event, with kids... Will someone think about the children? Not Trump. Cory talks about the White House Easter Egg Roll, where the President of the United States stated as fact that a lot of people lied to special counsel investigators. And, ouch, Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, finds out how “dad” really feels about him. Also, Trump orders his staff to boycott the White House Corr... Read more

The Mueller Report proves Sarah Sanders has a very slippery tongue (gross); Cory discusses how we have an admitted liar as the spokesperson for The President of the United States. He also goes through he favorite story, so far, from the report about Trump holding onto a resignation letter from Jeff Sessions, and a lie, of course; the story starts with a correction of a popular narrative about the now famous, "I'm fucked" line from ...

If Trump wants to work toward the denuclearization of North Korea... Cool. But treating the leader of a brutal regime like he’s your long-lost best friend, your younger, drug-addicted brother who you’re so proud they finally started going to meetings, the hottest person at the bar that you can’t believe chose to talk to you… Well, that’s just a dumpster fire… Plus, Trump doesn't think Kim Jong-un knew about Otto Warmbier, he made f...

Cory and Sean talk about how a lot of people don't think there really is a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border, including Trump, who is rallying his troops for the War of 2020 with "socialist" California. Also, Trump is eerily calm about the forthcoming Mueller Report, and a gross example of how he doesn't care about optics and how it really does matter. But first off, an empty applause break as Pence sends Trump's greetin... Read more

It's obvious Trump doesn't prep for speeches as an embarrassing gaffe at the National Prayer Breakfast punctuates after the ridiculously long, boring, rambling, World War II heavy State of the Union. Plus, Trump's call for unity ends as a new feud with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff begins, Trump's scheduled Executive Time, and the red button on the Oval Office desk.

Trump and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi are flexing, in letter form, over how and where the State of the Union will be delivered. Cory and Sean break that down along with ideas on how Trump could end the Shutdown and not look like a chump… to his base, that ship has sailed for 64% of America.

Even a simple briefing turns into a mess with the Trump administration. Was the CIA director blocked? Some people say no, others yes... Who's lying? Is it a cover-up? Everyone? Yes?
