With Ivanka having the ear of the President, I do not believe we should focus on nepotism. I believe we should look at her clashing political views.
Welcome back to TrumpFact, a measure of the administration, sans coloured opinion; just the black and whites of absolute facts. You judge.
We’re all about objective fact here at The Big Smoke, so each week we’ll bring you TrumpFact: a simple measure of the good and ill the man creates. We won’t judge. That’s your job.
O, Humpday. What happened while you were asleep? Well, the US people defended their President, George Brandis forgot important stuff, and the A-League expansion is off for the moment.
Just prior to Trump’s inauguration, I travelled to the United States and met Gord, a man who represents the backbone of the 45th Presidency. Desperate for change. Desperate to be right.
The Democratic Party is on the political ropes. They’ve lost Congress, most state legislatures, and the Whitehouse. This weekend’s vote for DNC chair may foretell the midterm elections, the 2020 Presidential, and beyond.
I recently returned home after years abroad, to find my country beset by stereotype. It’s time we question the truth – and our own thoughts – before lasting damage is done.
Donald Trump, Brexit, the rise of Pauline Hanson. That’s fine. However, if we continue this path of who’s complaint is loudest, I fear for the next election cycle.
Yes, we all cheered when one of the Trumps handed in his resignation, but the manner of Michael Flynn’s exit speaks of a rather bleak, and easy to imagine future.
Well, good morning to you. What happened while you were asleep? Well the Trump-Trudeau handshake ushered in a new era of journalism, Meryl Streep practiced for her next role and Jacqui Lambie was eviscerated by a TBS alum. Huzzah!
Monday, bloody Monday. What happened while you were asleep? The Federal Court halted Trump’s Muslim ban, Pauline shared what she’d do as PM and New York City cleaned up her act.
As the recent Berkeley protest against Milo Yiannopoulos shows, we are facing a political future split into “the ‘Libtards’ vs the racists”, where neither camp will get anything done.
So it seems that the democratic process is truly broken. I contend that we’ve always thought that, and perhaps it’s time we have a think about what we really expect from those we elect.
Monday. Yeah, I see you. What happened while you were asleep? Well, Kim Kardashian picked apart Trump, Uber lost some clientele and we witnessed the birth of twin goats.
Blergh. So early. What happened while you were asleep? Well, the number of those who marched was known, Barnaby Joyce skirted popularity and the road to the Superbowl was made concrete.
Barack Obama was a great father figure, an inspiration and a great voice. But was he as great as we expected him to be? I say no.
With Trump’s cabinet now stocked, it’s time we focus on what’s coming, not what’s already happened.
The life of Pablo may meet Uncle Joe in the 2020 election, with the news that Biden confirmed that he wouldn’t run, then that he refused to rule that he wouldn’t. Yay politics.
The winning vote for a Donald Trump presidency has seen cries that democracy has failed and strong rejection from those oppose. Seems nothing was learned from Brexit, right?
With threats of rape and violent protest, the Left look to be sinking to behaviour far worse than that which they have vowed to oppose from the Right.
Still struggling to make sense of the US election? Us too. Pick through the debris left by the election bomb with a soothing dose of Sunday satire.
What an end to a week. Death for breakfast, be it the same-sex marriage plebiscite, a cherished warrior poet, or all of us on social media.
