We put the MOCK in Democracy!

Week of February 18

President Trump's emergency declaration is "not unique." He says his predecessors "declared many national emergencies. Many, many." And that's actually true! So of course he's expecting their continued support, especially on Presidents' Day.

From the album Orange Is the New Barack (2017)

Week of February 11

Looking for an original, heartfelt way to impress your partner on Valentine's Day? Try to skip the romantic texts and selfies this year, and maybe even put away your phone.

Week of February 4

President Trump hates all the bad deals his predecessors made, and the I.N.F. treaty is no exception! He just withdrew the U.S. from the historic arms reduction treaty that President Reagan signed with Russia thirty years ago, bringing back the good old days of the cold war.

From the album Danny's First Noel (1989).

Week of January 28

Nancy Pelosi taught Donald Trump a thing or two about negotiating. He should have known better! This isn't the first time she's had to deal with a Republican president. Or with a temper tantrum.

From the album Springtime for Liberals (2007).

Week of January 21

Our government is still shut down, with thousands federal workers furloughed. But not Russia's! Vladimir Putin's government is open, with thousands of workers busy hacking away at U.S. interests and fighting sanctions.

New! See live performance video on YouTube.

Week of January 14

Paul Manafort's lawyers inadvertently revealed details from the Mueller investigation alleging that he shared campaign data with Russians tied to Kremlin intelligence. Trump says he knew nothing about his former campaign manager's activities. But even if he did, it's definitely, no way, not collusion.

From the album Orange Is the New Barack (2017).

Week of January 7

Elizabeth Warren jumped into the 2020 presidential race with five campaign stops in Iowa. She promised to "dream big," to "fight hard," and to be likable, too.

From the album Orange Is the New Barack (2017).

Week of December 31

Tune in for our annual year-end broadcast on New Year's eve, or download the podcast here. Join us as we take a look back — or a book lack — at 2018. It's been yite a quear in the perled of wolitics. (Just whip your flurds, you'll het the gang of it.)

From the album Make America Grin Again (2018).

Week of December 24

President Trump tweeted that people "are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again" thanks to him. Still, there's only so much one man can do. Christmas this year might have been even merrier, if only certain people weren't so willing to flip, rat, or snitch.

Week of December 17

Obamacare was just declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in Texas, and President Trump is thrilled! (President Obama, not so much.) If you're losing your insurance, or if someone you love has a pre-existing condition, don't worry! President Trump has a plan to keep you covered.

From the album Make America Grin Again (2018).
