A new nickname for donny two-scoops!

"Bright orange huffy wee fuckbumper"

As I was scrolling through screen after screen of Facebook pablum, I paused at one of Meme GOP's latest posts. Citing a BBC News story, the headline read "Nobel Prize Committee puts award on hold?"

Please do go on!

One of the comments caught my eye:
Why are people thinking he should receive a peace prize in the first place? He had fuck all to do with it anyway it was the efforts by the Chinese and the South Koreans that brought about the historic talks not the bright orange huffy wee fuckbumper's rants and threats of nuclear apocalypse on twitter!


Understanding that the US and UK are divided by a common language, that euphemism got stuck in my mind's eye. I don't need an interpretation or explanation. I just want others to know that this is now my favorite nickname for drumpf. At least until the next, even more colorful nickname comes along.

Macron gives Trump a tree: Twitter goes wild!

In what was supposed to be a symbolic gesture, France Prime Minister Emmanual Macron brought a young, European sessile oak tree -- from an historic forest -- to the White House. According to the Huffington Post,
...it came from Belleau Wood, some 60 miles northeast of Paris, which was the site of a World War I battle where 1,811 American Marines died in combat.

But on Twitter, many people noted how Trump’s participation in the planting could be seen as being at odds with his climate change-denying agenda.

Trump has previously called climate change a Chinese hoax, appointed climate change skeptic Scott Pruitt as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, and in June announced his intention to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord.


The photo-op involved Macron and Cadet Bone Spurs handling shovels, but Twitter ran away with the story.

Macron bringing Trump a tree as a gift is the PERFECT way to troll him over leaving the Paris Climate Agreement.

Man, that tree looks like it needs, “thoughts and prayers”.


Macron brought the tree and Trump brought the manure.


But it was this Tweet I found most inspirational:

Trump was probably fuming about being given a tree instead of something gold or gem-encrusted. Brilliant trolling on Macron’s part.


"Something gold or gem-encrusted?" What would have been a more appropriate gift for SCROTUS than something to go with his golden toilet? A golden bidet, that resembles a fountain at Versailles?




Thank you, Andy Borowitz, for reminding us

We once had an adult at the helm of our country.

Unsuspecting Americans who turned on cable news Monday morning were suddenly assaulted with the memory of a time when the country’s domestic affairs, international diplomacy, and nuclear codes were entrusted to an adult.

It's 2018.
Mid-term elections are coming up.
Get. Out. The. Vote.
We deserve better.
As does the rest of the world.

Bad Lip-Reading delivers!

Heartfelt apologies to orangutans, other noble primates, Rudyard Kipling, and people of color.

Communications director for Roy Moore campaign resigns

Source: The Hill

John Rogers, communications director for Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, has resigned, the campaign confirmed on Wednesday.
"As we all know, campaigns make changes throughout the duration of the campaign, as do those working in the campaign," Campaign Chairman Bill Armistead said in a statement. "John made the decision to leave the campaign last Friday - any representations to the contrary are false - and we wish him well."

It’s Thanksgiving Eve! He wants to spend more time with his family.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

DrumpfCare sucks out loud!

Got my renewal notice from Florida Blew (formerly: Blue Cross Blue Shield) today. If I stay with the shitty Bronze plan I have now, my monthly premium goes up 13% in January, but the deductible goes up 30%.

Before I dive into The Marketplace™, does anyone know of any good, affordable health plans in Florida?

Eugene Robinson: Trump's the one who didn't know 'what he was signing up for'

At the risk of overstating the fucking obvious, WaPo columnist Eugene Robinson put in writing what most of us have known for over a year now:


What Trump reportedly said to the grief-stricken widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, who gave his life for his country, is not some kind of minor miscue or media-fueled distraction. It speaks to the core issue of Trump's character and demonstrates, as clearly as any incident to date, his unfitness for the office he holds -- and dishonors.

...

Trump is a weak, narcissistic man in a job that requires strength and empathy. I'm not sure that empathy is a concept he even understands. He acts as if he believes that feeling someone else's pain is strictly for losers, not winners.

None of this is a surprise. We learned a lot about Trump during the campaign when he attacked the Khan family, who lost a son in Iraq, for having the temerity to attack him politically. We have a president who believes that making the ultimate sacrifice for the nation is less important than supporting or opposing Trump.

GOP CongressCreep defends Drumpf's Tweets: "He's Just A Fun Guy"

Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) apparently can’t help but laugh when he thinks about President Donald Trump’s bizarre behavior on Twitter over the weekend.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota attempted to ask Collins on Monday what he thought about Trump’s recent tweets, which shared a doctored image of the president appearing to hit Hillary Clinton with a golf ball, and called North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un a “rocket man.”

But the Republican member of Congress began giggling before Camerota could finish asking the question.


Read on here.

Yeah. Calling Kim "Rocket Man" was a real kneeslapper. But not nearly as side-splitting as his retweet of that hateful golf GIF.


I think of 45 more as fungi. As in fungal infection. Much worse than a brittle and discolored toenail. And much, much harder to cure.

Your silence is your complicity

Thank you Trae Crowder, Redneck Liberal extraordinare!
