9. Times now printing the news that was previously unfit to print

We have run out of 4 letter forbidden words. We have no inventory.

We need some new forbidden sex words.

Need new forbidden excrement words also.

Maybe we need a national contest.

Think the new forbidden 4 letter words should be 3 or 5 letters to distinguish them from the old 4 letter word supply.

We can program the ne forbidden words Ito our robots so they they exclaim them when a situation is really bad.

66. I'm fond of Shakespearean insults.

They so perfectly describe Trump.

“Thou art unfit for any place but hell.”
Richard III (Act 1 Scene 2)

“A most notable coward, an infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise breaker, the owner of no one good quality.”
All’s Well That Ends Well (Act 3, Scene 6)

An online Shakespearean insult generator lets you choose words to combine, such as “craven, boil-brained maggot-pie.”

I have to find my laughs where I can these days!

11. First time I can recall the NYT doing this. . .

. . .'cause other times they've substituted the forbidden word with parentheses or they spelled it with asterisks *** or a mixture of punctuation marks.

And for what it's worth, the unredacted phrase is repeated in full on page A24, in the editorial/opinion section.

13. Still laughing. Let that be Trump's presidential epitaph.

Years from now, when he is looking longingly out of his prison window at the blue sky and fantasizing about Russian prostitutes, he can shake his head, cast his eyes down, and say, "I'm fucked."

How melodramatic. He needs to be impeached, removed from office and then tried for criminal acts that include racketeering, and crimes against humanity.

In my mind, I'm seeing some guy, with a maga hat on, wearing a dirty (trump) Tee shirt and sitting in front of his TV in his shorts, beer on the end table, three days worth of munge on his face (and under his armpits), Faux news in the background (Hannity screeching something incomprehensible), trying to read the NYT and actually, well, understand it.

47. I sincerely hope this becomes the signature quote that encapsulates this "presidency"

Like FDR had "all we have to fear is fear itself" and JFK is remembered for "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country" (among other things), and we have Nixon on the other end of the spectrum with "I am not a crook!"...and now Donny Bonespurs has finally come out with a truly memorable pronouncement that is truly poignant and appropriate for his tenure: "I'm fucked."

Oddly enough, this is fairly close to what I said the night of 11/9/2016, after the election was called, speaking of us collectively as a nation. I turned to my wife and said, "welp...we're fucked."

Also I was thinking of ordering a red hat from one of those custom hats & shirts places, with that instead of the MAGA slogan. Just "I'm fucked" on the hat. I'm thinking of having a few of these made for some of my relatives; their 2016 campaign hats are getting kinda worn, and they'd probably like a new hat with a more up-to-date slogan from their Supreme Leader and all, right?

"I'm fucked." Hopefully that motto holds true for the dipshit from now until Nov. 2020 (if Bonespurs lasts 'til then, which I doubt.)
