We put the MOCK in Democracy!

Week of May 20

Vice President Pence has been making the rounds of Christian campuses this commencement season, and he got a standing ovation at Taylor University for telling students to "stand up" for their Christian values in a time when "religious belief is under assault."

See live performance video on YouTube! From the album Make America Grin Again (2018).

Week of May 13

President Trump told Michael Cohen that his son has "the worst judgment of anyone in the world." Don Jr. signed hush-money checks to Stormy Daniels, lied about the Trump Tower meeting, and maybe even perjured himself before Congress. Now that he's been subpoenaed by the Republican chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Don Jr. is getting ready to take the Fifth on the advice of counsel...and his dad.

From the album Make America Grin Again (2018).

Week of May 6

The Census Bureau has been under scrutiny for its addition of a question about citizenship, but illegal immigrants aren't the only ones dreading the 2020 census. Have you seen the planned questionnaire yet? There are enough questions to aggravate just about everybody.

From the album Desperate Housemembers (2011).

Week of April 29

Since President Trump routinely gets criticized and mocked for over-tweeting, it's no surprise that his defenders would attack liberals like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for under-tweeting. But it's not her style to back down, and AOC even had some choice words for the president.

Week of April 22

Bernie Sanders has a message for voters. It's about the millionaires and billionaires. And he's going to keep shouting it until everyone pays attention!

New! See live performance video on YouTube.

Week of April 15

Paul Ryan's legacy (among so many other things!) includes the major tax cut that you can see for the first time in the returns due today. It fits on a postcard and it pays for itself, too.

From the album Make America Grin Again (2018).

Week of April 8

Herman Cain is a strange choice for the Federal Reserve, unless President Trump wants interest rates at 9.99%, a return to the gold standard, or just someone to swap harassment stories with. The former pizza CEO and failed 2012 presidential candidate turned down an earlier Trump offer to be ambassador to Ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stan.

See live performance video on YouTube. From the album Take the Money and Run For President (2012).

Week of April 1

Facebook is facing a new federal lawsuit accusing it of giving advertisers tools to discriminate by limiting or blocking which potential renters or buyers can see a given property. The Trump administration is adamantly opposed to housing discrimination, so it's got its top man on the job, HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson.

Week of March 25

Robert Mueller's report is finally in! And it's a big win for President Trump: "No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION!" (Well, almost.) It's a big win for Russia, too. Mueller found no evidence that anyone else in the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia's internet operations to influence the 2016 election. Which is what Putin has been saying all along.
