I know I've covered this before but seriously! The only glimmer of hope is that Fox News has stopped live coverage of Trump's Nazi-style rallies due to low ratings. Hopefully this will continue, but I know better than to hope too much.

Hey, thanks for reading!! Please let me know what you think! Come @ me, bro!

SUP! So, drawing comics for free every week is actually hard work--throw me a couple bux on Patreon, wouldja? Thanks! Or just buy me a cuppa joe!

Liars, Liars, Everywhere--so many, Billy and Barbie have plenty to spare :(

It's the trifecta! No, not that the Republicans control all three branches of government--it's that they've compromised all three branches of government by putting known, demonstrable liars in prominent positions making the US government pretty much entirely untrustworthy. Before now, we couldn't trust them, but now it's just out in the open. This is what many of us have been seeing coming but we just get ignored because no one wants to believe the worst could ever happen again. Well, folks, if it happened before, it can happen again. And it is. Right here in America. Good luck to We, The People. I know we can survive, but it won't be without us trying.

Speaking of trying, I'm trying to change the world by drawing comics for free every week! Turns out it is actually kinda hard work! Throw me a couple bux on Patreon, wouldja? Thanks! Or just buy me a cuppa joe!

What's so unreasonable about #Kavanaugh, anyway? Oh we know...

I really really really hope the Republicans in the Senate have at least enough decency to not confirm a guy who has literally embarrassed himself in front of the world.

Billy knows EXACTLY what #Kavanaugh should have said to make this all go away!

Does Kav not remember what Arnold did when he was running for California governor and got accused of groping several women? HE APOLOGIZED, copped to it, said he was wrong for doing it and everyone forgave him... aaaand went on to do plenty more of it, but hey, sometimes denying it outright is a pretty good indicator of guilt.  Like that time your friends were going to out your first middle school crush and all you could think to do was scream "IT'S NOT TRUE!!!"

It's like that, only with sexual assault guilt.  You can trust my opinion, I'm an untrained amateur psychologist.

HEY YOU: drawing comics for free every week is actually hard work--throw me a couple bux on Patreon, wouldja? Thanks! Or just buy me a cuppa joe!

Oh, crap, Barbie's not sure how to deal with ANOTHER white dude getting accused of #SexualAssault...

Yeah, it's pretty fricken obvious Kav is the wrong guy for the job but then, we knew that the minute TRUMP picked him.

The Most Disturbing Thing of All Re: @POTUS

Here's hoping that the MainStream Media catch on to this little fact and STOP SAYING HIS NAME every five seconds. Or even better, they might STOP REPORTING ON EVERY DUMB-ASS THING HE SAYS. It's not ALL news, you morons! Who's the bigger moron? The moron or the morons who think everything he says is news?

I want to believe the letters of Trump's name will keep falling!! The catch is, I'm just too cynical!  This asshole has been getting away with all kinds of horrible things for decades.  I hope this will end soon.  This guy really needs to go to jail for the stuff he's done.  I just hope all the details come out.

Sadly, very few people are ever honest enough, or self-aware enough to admit when they are being idiots.

Some of us, CAN admit it. Like me, for ever thinking humanity could ever be even generally this honest or self-aware. I'm an idiot to hope for it. I'll hope anyway though! My cynicism be damned!

THIS JUST IN from the ALL TRUMP NEWS NETWORK! What You Need to Know!

Click here to see the full-size comic strip!
Just the other night I saw Andrea Mitchell, a TV news reporter with decades of experience covering politics basically say that as long as Trump is president and Trump tweets, the news media will report on it--like it's the only reality possible.

Billy has news from the All #Trump News Network!

Click here to see the full-size comic strip!
Now, I don't agree with Trump and his whole "Fake News" thing, but, at this point, about 80% of news about Trump is fake.  There's no point in reporting the same BS coming out of his mouth every time he opens it but every day, that's what the American MSM does.  Let's be honest, the press also lets him get away with lying through his teeth every day.  Real journalists would call him on every last lie--to his face.  Hell, they don't even call him on it NOT to his face.  Lies are being told endlessly and very rarely are they referred to in news reports AS lies.  We've devolved into some sort of parody of America.  The government is run by amoral, cowardly, conservative corruptionists and spineless, meek, pretend liberals.  Meanwhile, the milquetoast media is too scared to confront the damn truth.

It's FUN watching America rot from the inside in real time! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Billy Ballpoint is VERY worried about the #BlueWave but Barbie sets him straight! (Please visit the site)

Click here to see the full-size comic strip!

America was stupid once (well, MORE than once)... what if it's stupid again? It's going to be hard, but we need to educate our friends and family (even many of the liberal ones) to understand that reality is the most important thing. Hard facts need to be prioritized over all else. None of this "I define this word as XYZ" crap or "that's not what I saw in the video/photos" BS.

Look in the dictionary. Look at video footage. Look at photos. If you can't prove something with evidence you are inaccurate or possibly even lying. If we don't ALL agree that facts are paramount, then we have not just lost our country but the right to be taken seriously by any country or any person.

Seriously: this isn't about whose narrative wins. It's about whether we survive as anything but a literal country version of Trump. A sycophantic bubble baby who literally denies any part of reality he doesn't like and FAR too many of us do the same.  The more we ignore science and logic and reality, the more we become Trumpmerica. Please. Let's stop this together!

Billy and Barbie Know Why Comparing Presidents is a Dumb-Ass Game...

Click here to see the full-size comic strip!
Obviously, George H.W. Bush was not the worst president America has seen. However, calling George HW "honorable" to anyone who remembers the dark side of his service to America is offensive. I mean, dude ran the CIA, FFS. How honorable can a guy who ran the CIA even be?  I suppose it depends on your definition of the word "honorable."

I think we should all use Starburst candy as a sign of resistance against Trump. He was such a jackass to use them in some weird passive aggressive way against Angela Merkel at the G7. We need to remind him of how powerless and weak he felt at that moment, all he could do was throw candy at another world leader. Good plan, PUNK.

Billy remembers a time when another president was messing up in the White House

This is how full of shit the Republicans are. A single adulterous affair in the White House is the worst thing that could happen, according to the GOP. Of course, two failed wars, Abu Ghraib, Gitmo, and now everything with Trump, are all MUCH worse than Bill and his intern, but you wouldn't know that from the GOP speaking out about it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The saddest thing about Trump is that this is absolutely true about him. He was raised to completely overlook the good in anyone. Probably, even himself. His utter lack of shit-giving for anyone else on the planet informs every choice he makes. Goodness, love, compassion, informs nothing. He is one sad jackass.
