This Week in Trumplandia


Welcome to This Week in Trumplandia. Check in with us every Thursday for a weekly roundup of the most pertinent content on our country, which is currently spiraling down a crappy toilet drain. You owe it to yourself, your community, and your humanity to contribute whatever you can, even if it is just awareness of the truth.

The White House tried to justify Trump’s strike against Syria by saying, “Someone as despicable as Hitler… didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.” There are no words.

Fake news is still a HUGE problem.

Silvia Carrus’s comic “Freedom of Speech” at Femsplain is forever relevant in 45’s America.

And Jen Sorenson’s comic for Fusion on 45’s hypocrisy regarding Syria is scathing.

This probably goes without saying, but the most dangerous form of terrorism comes from America’s GOP.

45 loses in court again. This time the victor is voting rights.
