We put the MOCK in Democracy!

Week of January 18

After two solid months of disappointment, failure, and losing since the election, Donald Trump gets one last wish this week. (Not counting pardons.)

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


Week of January 11

The first time Donald Trump was impeached, he fought and won. Now that he's facing a second impeachment, it might be time to reconsider the earlier advice he got from one of his predecessors.


Week of January 4

Brexit is finally here, and Britain's close relationship with Europe is at an end. It's not going as smoothly as its proponents predicted, but everyone's trying to keep a stiff upper lip.

From the album The Lyin' Kings (2019).


Week of December 28

Congress tucked plenty of extra spending, tax breaks, and other goodies for the lobbyists into the 5,593-page year-end spending bill that President Trump called "a disgrace." Then he signed it anyway "with a strong message...that wasteful items need to be removed." Good luck convincing Congress of that!

From the album Danny's First Noel (1989)


Week of December 21

The medical practice of "surprise billing" could soon be a thing of the past. The last-minute, year-end spending package includes bipartisan agreement to stop doctors and providers you didn't expect from charging you a fortune.

From the album All I Want For Christmas Is A Tax Increase (1993)


Week of December 14

Congress just barely managed to keep itself afloat for another week, so the chances for the next budget deal look grim, which means no more federal aid this year for the millions of Americans out of work and out of benefits.

From the album Barackin’ Around the Christmas Tree (2009)


Week of December 7

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a holiday message for everyone — even President Trump, the man who personally revived the phrase "Merry Christmas."

From the album Barackin' Around the Christmas Tree (2009).


Week of November 30

Michael Flynn was treated so unfairly! Imagine if James Comey had been willing to "let go" of the investigation back in 2017. Or if the former National Security Advisor hadn't voluntarily confessed to being totally guilty. Or if William Barr and Sidney Powell had fixed this historic miscarriage of justice. Even though President Trump is getting another lump of coal this Christmas, he offered an early present in the form of a pardon for Flynn to finally close out the horrible story of how badly he was treated.
