The Day The Con Ends

It’s finally here. Everyone take a breath, take a few walks today, pet the dog plenty… remain calm.

Go vote if you haven’t already – long lines reported everywhere. Broken machines, confusion… Voter suppression at it’s finest.

Damn those millennials and purists sitting this one out. I hope you don’t regret it.


President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, along with with members of the national security team, receive an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room of the White House, May 1, 2011.

Reality. Not reality TV.


We’ve never had a bold in your face liar showman like Don John go for president before, at least in the electronic media age. He did better than most of us thought. Or we are just that horrible of a society.

The fact that his con, similar to Sarah Palin’s, worked on the Tea Party types is not a surprise. They would fall for a billionaire in a trucker hat. I wonder if he wears his trucker hat around his golden apartment?

I’m disappointed in the neocons and religious right for not handling this guy. Take his liberal (dirty) money and get him off the stage.

Romney and McCain were decent candidates, you were just facing a rockstar in Obama.  Trump is Biff Tannen. He needs to be punched in the face, like 50 years ago.


Fred Trump

Don with his dad Fred, the racist who made hundreds of millions off the taxpayers in questionable housing project contracts. Now Don makes dirty money from everything he touches – Casinos, modeling, immigration exploitation, TV, even the election. Donny is the first candidate to profit from running for President. Dad would be so proud!

 


I love you america …. do the right thing today and send this orange clown home like the loser he is.

The First Presidential Non-Debate

Astonishing. They agree to a forum with veterans and the armed forces, but they won’t be on the stage at the same time. The rules are that you should not talk about your opponent, only your plans.  They flip a coin, Don wins, he chooses to go 2nd.

Unknown if he says “ladies first”.

Hillary comes out and is immediately hammered with 5-6 questions about her email server when she was secretary of state!  An IT question, with continued followups?  So she goes out and she bats them down — I was told to consider my own managed server for non-classified stuff (by Colon Powell himself), it was several years ago, I took the advice of my tech and security people, nothing was classified, the state department gets hacked too, in retrospect it seems like a mistake, yada yada yada.


Email sucks

How about everyone in here give ME details about their email servers from 2009? Anyone? Bueller?


She never really recovers because she’s on the defensive, and touting her considerable foreign affairs experience comes off as bragging. Physically everything seems fine. She still has a shrill voice and bug eyes that wander around like she smells a fart but overall she seems healthy for her age, still sharp as a tack.

She slogs through gaining the respect of the crowd and then makes way for the spectacle that is The Don Trump.


Drumpf

What a draft dodger looks like entering a room full of veterans.


But wait, what’s this? No We Are The Champions?* It’s humbleTRUMP.

He slogs in with his shoulders down, walking crooked, making his pouty face.

I know his act. It’s because the room is full of real american heroes he is too afraid to act out. People of all races, religions, creeds, colors, and beliefs, and all of them more capable to be president than him. Sometimes his embarrassment shows on his face.


Cheetos Jesus

I was against the Iraq war. But the military then was strong. Now it’s nothing but losers. Thank’s Obama. Plus we should have taken Iraq’s oil. Whatever happened to “To the victors go the spoils?” Well there were no victors there, just saying, but we should have taken the oil……. or something like that. I’m fabulous. It’s fabulous oil.


He starts with a glare when he’s informed of the rule to not attack his opponent. Then a dumb joke turning to a minimum into two a minimum?, random facts mixed with lots of fantasy, and a surprising lack of bragging for The Don.

He’s replaced that bragging with attacks on his opponent, of course, because he was told not to. When chastised for it he simply says Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton instead of Hillary alone. He cares nothing for rules, facts, or logic. His arguments are based on emotion and ignorance only.

He knows about as much about the world as your drunk uncle, but he’s rich so he’s actually dangerous and allowed to function with such theories. For the love of money he gets away with ridiculous notions.


  • Hit song by the band Queen, played by Trump without permission at the republican national convention during the introduction to wife Melania’s speech, which used exact lines from Michelle Obama’s speech 8 years earlier. Queen was led by a Farrokh Bulsara, a gay man of Persian (Iranian) descent who’s family relocated to England as political refugees, and you know better as Freddie Mercury.

 

The Presidential Reality Show

Trump Unhinged 2016!

#PeopleAreSaying that Trump farted and killed Santa Claus.

That’s messed up man, Santa was a good dude.


Well it’s playing out as anticipated by nearly all of us…. Trump’s getting crazier by the day, and his cult has adapted so well to explaining what he meant that I think he might be testing them now.

He has started calling Hillary “the MVP of ISIS”. Then he said ISIS prays to Obama. Then he said Obama formed ISIS. He is sticking by his ‘belief”, aka his slogan, that Obama founded ISIS.

I won’t insult your intelligence by explaining all the ways the sociopath Don is wrong.

But I’d like to remind everyone that the first version of Al Qaeda was most definitely armed and funded by 80’s republicans during the Reagan administration. As they rose to power during the Clinton 90’s they took many names and ultimately took over Afghanistan.

They were fighting Russia so they were our friends.

They were fighting Russia so they were our friends. Here’s the original ending credits of Rambo III, a 80’s hard on gun film that celebrated the brave fighters we were actually arming. Truth stranger than fiction. BTW these credits have since been changed.

What’s now ISIS was originally mostly Iraqi Army, employed by Saddam. Bush/Cheney chose to make them unemployed when we invaded, not dead or captured or rehired or on paid leave. Any 4 of them would have been better than unemployed.

Baghdad Bob: “I’m the Greatest!”, aka Iraqi Trump.


Under the laziness of Drumpf’s statement is a nugget of truth, a valid criticism about the US invasion, withdrawal and exit of Iraq (negotiated by Bush and followed by Obama), and the more recent bad relations with Syria by Obama/Clinton.

Bush Iraq

Prez W signing the withdrawal from Iraq paperwork

Any serious candidate would have gotten in there and found positions Hillary took and then attack her on them, 1 day at a time, until some of her voters would agreed with the portrayal enough to abandon her. Don is not a serious candidate.


Don is playing to the Honey Boo Boo crowd. They are a sizable(!) minority in this country that believes they are an overwhelming majority. They are not good at math.

Anything for a few bucks.

 

Drumpf Regret

Well that ended quicker than I thought. Cruz and Kasich drop and Don has the republican nomination.

It’s up to Hillary to save us from this nightmare:

Don is a tired old man and it’s starting to show.

 

That should be fun. I really still can’t see most mainstream republicans supporting Drumpf. They will try to shine up his good points and generally fall in line behind him, but when asked to explain their support it will either be simple sloganistic points or confused gobbledygook.

He has many liberal policies and quite a few nonsensical ones as well, so watching the surrogates will be the real entertainment.

I guess Cleveland is happy, maybe not. There will still be the protests on the street, even if the delegates are eating Trump steaks served by teenage modelesque girls with thick eastern european accents.

Cleveland will still be overrun by a strange mix of christians, pagans, pro wrestling fans, and hillbillies calling themselves republicans, doing all they can to avoid the local populace and the various imported liberal opportunists.

Redstate Ridiculousness

The republican blog RedState made news the other day when they rescinded their invitation to Donald Trump to speak at their event meeting the Republican hopefuls.

RedState did this based on his exchange with Meghan Kelly about women, and more specifically his response on CNN after the debate where Trump said Kelly had it out for him and “had blood coming out of her eyes, or her wherever…”.

It was close enough to “she’s on her period” to get a lot of people upset, including the friendly GOPers at RedState.  See, their head guy has a daughter now, and he couldn’t believe Trump went there (or might have).

Of course a lot of the site’s readers didn’t agree and backed Trump. They had a few words for Kelly that would get you fired if used at work.

Today? Front page article about Jeb and Hillary starting with the gem

If Hillary Clinton possesses any unique selling propostion beyond proving even a homely woman can sleep her way into power, it is her tenure as Barack Obama’s secretary of state.

That’s a compliment about her extensive resume that claims she only achieved it by sleeping around. Also, since she was such a slut while also being so physically unattractive, this makes her – yes -a groundbreaking woman.

This is their compliment. Ugly slut, right on the front page.

This is the same site that banned Trump from their event and most of his followers from their site.


 

So much entertainment at this point in the campaign.

Wait till the Tea Party makes their big pitch for Trump, puts someone on TV to explain how The Donald and The Tea Party are made for each other. Their face might explode with irony.
