Donald Trump’s fave journalist, Jim Acosta, has some bad news for the pr*sident. Last night was a bloodbath, even according to Trump’s “friends.” And the GOP likely has no idea what it’s in for:


Of course, you knew Trump would try to spin this as a win. Because, as you also know, nothing is ever Suck L’Orange’s fault.

Uh, Kentucky is redder than your ass, pal. Losing the governorship is not exactly a triumph.

Uh huh. We’ll see. Because if there’s anything redder than Kentucky, it’s Moscow Mitch.

Does Trump make you want to delete your brain? Of course he does! But don’t do it until you’ve read Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and its breathlessly awaited sequel Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing. Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” diversions from our temporary hell on Earth. Don’t delay. Click those links, yo!
