We put the MOCK in Democracy!

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.

Week of March 18

Facebook celebrated the one-year anniversary of the Cambridge Analytica data harvesting scandal with even more scandal. And outages. And a plan to completely change everything users expect from Facebook.

Week of March 11

Democrats have a crowded field of candidates. They just keep coming! For New Hampshire voters, it means a lot of new names and faces to keep straight. For President Trump, it means facing his greatest challenge yet: coming up with nicknames for all of them.

New! See live performance video on YouTube.

Week of March 4

The president roused the right last week with his record-long, wild and rambling speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference. For well over two hours he kept Republicans enthralled and fact checkers working overtime.

Week of February 25

Bernie Sanders raised a record-setting $6 million dollars within a day of his announcement of his 2020 presidential campaign. He's the only current Democratic candidate who has run for the office before, and he knows just how to stand up to the current administration.

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).
