"A smokin' gun of racism"

Tea Pain

Following Following @TeaPainUSA
Trump just handed us a smokin’ gun of racism. Censure his sorry hide and make every Republican go on record to defend him. A veritable campaign ad gold mine!

What say ye, @SpeakerPelosi?

The father of our country has told Donnie Dumpster Fire to shut up.

Knowing Trump, he won't take the hint.

"They were supposed to have tanks."

Welcome To Trump’s Taxpayer Funded “Salute to America” (Just Don’t Expect to See the Tanks)

By Morgan Baskin Jul 4, 2019

But the president would not arrive for several more hours. Black clouds threatened to bring thunderstorms to the event area. And visitors had no access to the tanks and armored vehicles Trump promised at the rally, visible only to the Republican donors and allies with access to the VIP seating area adjacent to the monument.

That disappointed Anthony Miller, a Trump supporter from Kansas City, Missouri, who said that he “was looking for the tanks, they were supposed to have tanks.”

”I’ve been looking all up and down the parade and asking everybody where they’re at, and I haven’t seen no tanks yet,” Miller said. “Well, imagine that. We’re paying for ‘em but we can’t see ‘em.”

Though several thousand attendees strong, the crowd appeared thin by late afternoon, with only the access areas directly in front of the Lincoln Memorial and jumbotrons full. A typical Fourth of July would fill the National Mall from the Lincoln Memorial to the U.S. Capitol.

Arte Johnson, Master of Manic Characters on 'Laugh-In,' Dies at 90

Source: HollywoodReporter.com

Arte Johnson, the comic best known for the hilarious characters he created for the 1960s NBC smash hit Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, has died. He was 90.

The 5-foot-4 Johnson, a master of ad libs, double-talk and dialects who was content to be a "second banana," died Wednesday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles of heart failure following a three-year battle with bladder and prostate cancer, his family announced.


Johnson had a repertoire of more than 60 comic characters, including Piotr Rosmenko, an Eastern European song-and-dance man; Rabbi Shankar, an addled Indian guru; and a man in a yellow raincoat who could not help falling off his tricycle.

"Humor for me consists in incongruity," he said in 1974. "If I were doing a Hasidic rabbi, I'd have him speak with an Irish accent. … You take it out of reality and make it cartoon-esque without being denigrating. Because people today are so sensitive, it's the only way of creating humor without offending someone."

This quote from Thomas Jefferson showed up on my Facebook memories from six years ago.

Seems applicable to modern times.

"He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors."-Thomas Jefferson
