“This way, Mexico will have to pay much less money [for the wall]. And that’s good, right? Is that good?”
I think Trevor’s team missed the point of Trump’s statement, which to me was just a back-handed, veiled dig that reiterated his witless promise to still make Mexico pay for the wall. Why people ever believed that would happen, and why people still believe it, is just a preposterous mystery. As a plot device in a moronic thriller: 1 star.
“I love all people, rich or poor. But in those particular [cabinet] positions, I just don’t want a poor person. Does that make sense?”
Trevor’s larger point that Trump’s supporters fully, utterly support Trump no matter what he says or does is right on target. He is the loudest idiot in a room-full of god damned idiots.
In fact, at this point, my feeling is that we need to let the Republicans pass this health bill as is.
The Democrats will get zero credit with these people for trying to mitigate the more horrific parts of the bill. If a watered-down version, a version that isn’t quite so draconian, gets passed, the Democrats will be blamed for it. “It’s not working because we didn’t get everything we wanted in it” will be said quite loudly, and the clapping people in this video will agree with that, because that’s what they do. People will be miserable, but many of them will blame the Democrats for it.
If, however, the bill passes in its entirety, there will be misery, on a massive scale. The people in this video will suffer. If this bill passes with no input from the left, the cause-and-effect relationship will be as clear as it ever can be.
Just let it pass. It may be the only way to open their eyes.
Or it may not be enough. In which case, we’ll finally know exactly where we stand.
Here’s a thing about being an elitist that didn’t used to be true: if you’re not a god damned moron, you’re an elitist.
If we admit them, we’ll have to admit a slave state too. It’s more complicated than it looks.
The twenties were the best. Hardly anyone you knew was dying.
OH MY GOD LOOK AT THESE SIX PEOPLE
Also, that may as well be Wolfman Jack on the keyboard.
If you’re so attracted to light, there’s a god damn sun on all during the daytime you can feel free to mob.
Each and every one of the five guys in this video, including Andrew Gold who I assume is the responsible party, had to try to find something in himself that would make doing this alright.
And I think they succeeded. Every face is at peace with the schmaltz.
It’s a sweet song.
but it’s still awesome.
Hem’s cover is my go-to version.
Theda Bara, Cleopatra, 1917.
I love Dolores O’Riordan’s story. I’m a sucker for poor Irish lasses.
It’s a singalong, everybody!
The Hispaniolan Edible Rat became extinct no later than 1546 AD.
Other species that were wiped out shortly after European settlement include the Cucumber-faced Lumbering Delicious Sloth of Massapequa and the Flightless Ham-sandwiched Lardbird of Nova Scotia.
The world has become less tasty for their loss.
Who are the adults of the adult world? Lawyers. That’s why everybody hates them, and nobody can do without them.
$151,000, just sitting there in a market-tracking account, makes as much money every year as a full-time minimum-wage worker.
In a Vanity Fair story:
“Recent allegations made by media commentator Judge Andrew Napolitano about G.C.H.Q. being asked to conduct ‘wiretapping’ against the then president-elect are nonsense,” the British spy agency said in a notably pointed statement. “They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored.”
This is the first evidence I’ve seen that foreign governments think Trump is an authentic moron, and they have no qualms with politely saying so out loud. Good for foreign governments!
Q: “What do you think about the people who came up with this crazy-ass conspiracy idea?”
A: “They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored.”
Later in the story, Trump refuses to apologize, and says he was only quoting someone: “All we did was quote a very talented legal mind.” Hey, you can probably walk fifty paces in any direction from your chair in the Oval Office and find somebody standing there who knows the answer, and will tell it to you. You god-damned moron. This “I don’t know, I read it somewhere” shit is horrifying coming from the president of the United States and needs to stop.
