Tonight’s Dose of Trump Blather

There’s no point in excerpting or commenting on Donald Trump’s latest bit of blather. Just click and read as you sydh. The guy is still obsessed with all the same twaddle: his greatness, his endorsements, his Air Force One victory, steam catapults, clean coal, the record-setting economy, massive levels of corporate investment thanks to his awesome leadership, etc. etc. And keep in mind: this boasting isn’t for public consumption. This was in a closed-door meeting of cabinet-level officials. This is cretinism beyond belief.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
