Interesting Trump quote about guns

According to https://www.rawstory.com/2020/10/right-wing-facebook-pages-are-spreading-a-fake-kamala-harris-quote-that-actually-came-from-trump/?utm_source=push_notifications, the hard right is spreading a meme with Senator Harris' photo along with this quote: “Take the guns first, go through due process second — I like taking the guns early.”

Turns out the quote is from Trump, and it's really bad for his supporters:

“Take the firearms first and then go to court,” Trump said in the wake of the shooting. “Because that’s another system, because a lot of times, by the time you go to court, it takes so long to go to court, to get the due process procedures. I like taking the guns early. Like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida, he had a lot of firearms — they saw everything — to go to court would have taken a long time, so you could do exactly what you’re saying, but take the guns first, go through due process second.”

So...when Putin finally tells Trump, "it's time to take the guns away from the American people," Trump will do it.

It is critical to impeach Trump the day after he loses

The Constitution says a president’s pardon power is unlimited except in cases of impeachment..

Trump’s plan if he loses will be to either attempt a self-pardon (which is arguably illegal, in that you can’t be your own judge) or to resign so Pence can pardon him. If he’s under impeachment for tax evasion, money laundering, fomenting insurrection, 250,000 cases of negligent homicide, campaign finance violations, and whatever else we can hit him with, he can’t be pardoned for those things.

Did Trump call Joe Biden "Jim"?

They're making a sequel to "The Passion of the Christ"

Jim Caviziel is set to reprise his role as Jesus. The film will show him rising from the dead, performing miracles, and ascending into Heaven.

I was under the impression that in the Bible, Jesus didn't come out of the tomb and immediately start running around performing miracles. He did all those BEFORE he was crucified.

Trump doesn't care about overturning Roe

He probably prefers it to NOT be overturned, just in case he needs it.

Trump's more urgent need is staying in office long enough to run out the Statutes of Limitations on some of the shit he's pulled. If he tries to put another justice on the court, it'll be a Trump toady sent to protect His Corpulence from the police.

Trump and the Outhouse

It so happens that one fine day, the 10-year-old Donald Trump and one of the neighborhood kids who was bribed into pretending to be his friend were walking around on the Trump family estate when they spy an outhouse next to a small cliff.

"Hey!" yelled Trump. "Let's push it over the cliff! It'll be fun!" They do so.

A couple hours later, his father called him into his den. "Donald, did you push the outhouse over the cliff?"

"Why no sir," Trump said, "why would I want to do something like that?"

Trump's dad said, "Donald, did I ever tell you about George Washington and the cherry tree?"

"No, father."

"Well, you see, one day George Washington as a boy chopped down a cherry tree on his family's farm. When they asked if he did it, George stood up and said, 'Father, I cannot tell a lie. I chopped it down.' And he didn't get in any trouble at all. Now, did you push the outhouse over the cliff?"

"Father, I cannot tell a lie. I pushed the outhouse over the cliff."

Trump's dad immediately beat Trump to within an inch of his life and arranged to ship him off to military school.

"But father, why? You said Washington fessed up to chopping down a cherry tree and didn't get in trouble for it."

"George Washington's father wasn't sitting in the cherry tree when he chopped it down."

I suspect Trump is on the shortlist for the 2020 Ig Nobel Prize in Medicine

"For his attempts to promote cleaning products and dangerous drugs with no antiviral ability as cures for COVID-19, a disease caused by a virus."

They'll be sure to play this song during the announcement:
