We put the MOCK in Democracy!

Week of February 19

When Donald Trump found out that Presidents' Day was plural, he was upset! And when he saw that it didn't include a military parade, he decided to order one in his honor. Meanwhile, Americans have been steadily revising their opinions of his precedessors, who have been mostly quiet since he took office.

From the album Orange Is the New Barack (2017)

Week of February 12

Score one for Trump over Obama in truth telling! Obama promised to close the prison at Guantanamo, but he never did. Trump promised to keep it open during his State of the Union address, and his new executive order will keep it open indefinitely. That opens up new possibilities for adding prisoners, and it dashes the dreams of the remaining detainees to make it to the mainland anytime soon.

From the album Liberal Shop of Horrors (2010)

Week of February 5

Speaker Paul Ryan took some heat last week for his tweets in praise of the GOP tax cuts. He was mocked mostly because he cited the case of a teacher getting an extra $1.50 per week in her paycheck. After the backlash by an ungrateful public, Ryan deleted the tweet so he can try to explain himself again.

Week of January 29

After Democrats scored some big wins in November and in special elections last December, their prospects for 2018 were looking very bright. So the leadership figured...perfect time for a shutdown?

Week of January 22

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has a tough job to do: explaining the president's "tough language," proving that he's not a racist, and generally making sure that information is accurate — just the way the president likes it. And during the government shutdown (by "obstructionist losers") she'll have to keep doing her job for free.

Week of January 15

The federal government is heading for another shutdown this week, unless Congress heeds the call of bipartisan statesmen like Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell for compromise...by the other side. That's part of the reason the approval rating for Congress is even lower than Donald Trump's.

Week of January 8

Alabama voters didn't mind when Roy Moore was twice thrown out of office for failing to uphold the Constitution, which was after all a job qualification for being Chief Justice of the state Supreme Court. But a slim majority drew the line when it came to allegations of "dating" teenagers. Out of Washington and out of a job, Roy is heading back to the mall.

Week of January 1

New Year's Eve in Washington? Bah, humbug! Not for President Trump, especially if it means spending yet another weekend in that dump called the White House. (Which he never called it.) That's why he's starting the new year with another "working vacation" at one of his own classy properties.

From the album Orange Is the New Barack (2017).
New! See live performance video on YouTube!.

Week of December 25

President Trump says the GOP tax bill is "an incredible Christmas gift" for "hard-working Americans." Thanks, Santa! But until the changes kick in next year (and after they expire), you'll have to manage on your own.

From the album O Christmas Bush (2006).

Week of December 18

Donald Trump Jr. has been ducking Congressional questions about his Russian contacts that could implicate his father. Don Jr. has so much in common with his father, and even more at stake to defend.

See live performance video on YouTube!.

Week of December 11

With so many cases of sexual misconduct in the news, one man took on the job of finding the truth.

Week of December 4

When the going gets tough, Trump gets tweeting. He might have finally gone too far for his own good by admitting to obstruction of justice. No, wait, it wasn't him, it was his lawyer who sent that one out. And if Trump didn't write it, then it's just more fake news!
