They are still standing with him.

TWEET ME "Trump a poor person's idea of what a rich person is, dumb person's idea of what smart person is, weak person's idea of what strong person is"

I wish I could take credit for that quote, but I can't.  It comes from a member of  my twitter family.  (h/t @CheriJacobus) 

Anyway, over the past couple of days Mr. trump has managed to piss off everyone in America who has a decent bone in their body, with his ignorant and sexist tweets. Everyone, of course, except the usual suspects ,who will come to his defense no matter what he does.

Although, I must say, that his main antagonist of late, Mika and Joe, have been complicit in allowing this sore on America to fester by enabling his crass behavior in the past.

The following satirical article sums up the dance around trump by some people in Washington, perfectly.  

"I stand with my colleagues in Congress to say: The president’s tweet is beneath the dignity of the office.

This is not making America great.

The president has at last done the unthinkable: He has insulted a morning television personality in crude and ghastly terms and I must — in consequence of this hideous and vile breach of the dignity of the office — withdraw none of my support from his legislative agenda. (If you can call it a legislative agenda and not a ragtag collection of bad ideas quickly stapled together with a dead pigeon in the middle.)   

His remark about Mika Brzezinski is absolutely shameful and I do not stand with him, except insofar as it is necessary to stand with him so that we can make sure infants get access to pesticides, as the Founders would have wished.

I am shocked and appalled by his behavior. And I am not afraid to say so. At a fundraiser. For him. Before asking for more donations.

Everything else the president has done is fine — the continued attacks on the media’s legitimacy, the carelessness toward history and diplomacy, the harmful rhetoric about Muslims, the — well, it is all fine. This is too much, though, and I am putting my foot down, here, on my way to vote against icebergs.

I will add my voice to Sen. Orrin Hatch‘s full-throated condemnation and, also, to his remark that “Every once in a while you get a dipsy-doodle.”

I am glad that at long last we legislators are standing up to President Trump by going to Twitter and typing stern words into a little box, words such as “I don’t believe the President’s tweets this morning Make America Great Again” (Rep. Kevin Yoder) and “It is incumbent upon ALL of us to tone down this divisive political rhetoric. #RestoreCivility” (Rep. Adam Kinzinger). Yes, all of us! It is important to spread this around. As well as, “Your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America” (Sen. Lindsey O. Graham).
Some have even gone so far as to stand up in front of reporters and offer the ringing denunciation that, “Obviously, I don’t see that as an appropriate comment,” as House Speaker Paul D. Ryan did. Fiery rhetoric, and appropriately so!

By God, this is not what George Washington would have wanted, and I am thus withdrawing my support for everything but the legislation Trump would like us to pass. His words are a shame, but it is too important that we end health insurance for indigent seniors in Ohio.

“Did the president go too far with this tweet?” Fox News’s John Roberts asked at the White House press briefing. “I don’t think so,” deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders replied. “He’s not going to sit back and be attacked by the liberal media, Hollywood elites. And when they hit him, he’s going to hit back.”

This may be enough for her, but it was not enough for me. By God, I will not just sit here and allow this sort of thing to continue. By god. By God. Hang on, I have to go vote to make certain that no one can vote without answering a fun quiz from 1868.

I join my voice with the voices of my colleagues to say this “isn’t normal,” is “beneath the dignity of the office,” is “inappropriate,” is “unhinged” and “unpresidential.” Also, it is a distraction from the legislation we are now working on to force the elderly to fight each other with tridents in order to obtain prescription medication.

I look forward to many more acts of such courage.

“I entirely denounce the president’s decision to bite off an infant’s foot,” I will say, on my way to vote for his bill banning all trees once and for all.

I will continue to show him that I believe in the dignity of the office by making snide, cutting remarks to my funders as I urge them to support Trump’s renomination.

“It is deplorable that the president called all women in America [unprintable] [unspeakables],” I will boldly observe, on my way to vote for his bill to replace the entire social safety net with a dead raccoon in a brown paper bag. “I do not stand with him.”

Not at all. Except in every way that counts." [Source]

First, liberal media, Joe the fuck Scarborough? Hardly.
And Joe Joey Joe Joe Joe tweets "what is wrong with you" to president four-year-old as if he didn't know... I'll tell you Joey Joe Joe, he's Donald the fuck Trump. And you helped elect him, so I don't want to hear your outrage and whinging now that the monster you helped unleash is chewing on YOUR ass and Mika's, because not only did you bring this on yourselves, but it's not even the real story here.
The real story here, as is always the case when president four-year-old dodders off into particularly disgusting or offensive behavior (even for him) is somewhere else that he really doesn't want any attention paid to.
And this time, take your pick from the coprophagist's buffet of Friday-before-the-holiday newsdump turdlings:
The CBO's score on the second decade of BCRA carnage, Pete Smith's crack team of ratfuckers who openly and on paper admitted to trying to get hacked Clinton emails from Russian hackers to give to Flynn, president four-year-old's upcoming meeting with Putin to receive his marching orders, the elimination by the house appropriations committee of all of the funding for the agency tasked with protecting our voting systems from hacking and espionage, Kris the fuck Kobach demanding the voter files on every voter in the country along with their voting and legal history and the last four digits of their social security number... You know, stuff like that.
Being willing to forego dignity and human decency is sort of his only qualification to lead the Republican party, and at this point pretty much his job description. Sort of like a really disgusting Zaphod Beeblebrox, but without the extra head and wit and charm.

With information readily available from so many sources, why would it still be necessary to turn your television on every morning? Wouldn't people be better off grabbing a little bit of extra shuteye or some morning loving? Smoke cigarets, drink coffee, do what you like to do. Take a walk or a bike ride. Shouldn't people be more concerned with eating a good breakfast and hitting traffic a few minutes early so that they don't arrive late to work? I don't get it. It's so 1980s.

Anonymous said...

Ha! My mom used to turn on the news in the morning just to make sure "the world was still spinning" and now with president insano inhabiting 1600 Pennsylvania I have to do the same.

Gotta disagree Field, Newt Gengrich is what a dumb person thinks a smart person sounds like.

Next Dem Potus will be held to the highest standards wingnuts can conjure up. If he/she breathes wrong impeachment charges will follow. Until then, wingnuts will accept Drumpfuck's childish rants as normal and try to claim Obama was the same way.

"the harmful rhetoric about Muslims"

Thirteen killed at Ft. Hood, a dozen murdered at a Christmas party in San Bernardino and the bombing of the Boston Marathon are a small price to pay for diversity!

And don't you EVER say Muslims are violent.  They'll kill you for that.

"over the past couple of days Mr. trump has managed to piss off everyone in America who has a decent bone in their body"

Such delicious salty tears

An observant orbital engineer who does chemistry at his desk said...

What's a small price to pay for crazy white boys like yourself Jamie? 9 killed in church, dozens killed watching a movie, 5 year olds ripped apart by an assault rifle. Geez, I think we need a little diversity because crazy white boys don't need to be the only people around.

An extremely observant orbital engineer who does chemistry at his desk said...

Nah man, those weren't liberal tears Trump was "showering" in.

James Bold said...

That was one dozen on the nose you innumerate clown, and it was 5 years ago.

Meanwhile we have six dozen shot and killed in Chimpcongo just last month, and an incompetent immigrant dindu shooting up a hospital in Boston (probably disgruntled because the White lady got him fired after he wouldn't take no for an answer when he wanted to sleep with her).

"I think we need a little diversity because crazy white boys don't need to be the only people around."

I'm all for diversity.  I want the USA to be a LOT more different from Afreaka than it is, starting with the return of all Afreakans to da muddaland.  I'm sure most of the English, Swedish and Germans would say the same, if they wouldn't get thrown in jail for daring to contradict the doctrine of Holy Diversity In All Countries And Between None.

How about all the Europeons go back to Europe. Bye bitch!

Boston Mandingo said...

Disgruntled because the white lady wouldn't sleep with him? Seriously? Do you have ANY idea how many white women want the anaconda? You gotta shoo them away with a bat. They want them some Mandingo.

dinthebeast said...

And we're looking at 200,000 poor people killed in the next decade by Republicans.

Got any more shocking racism? The Pig-People are really gonna need some when they start dying off.

Jamie is an unemployed troll said...

For someone with a supposed elevated IQ and such an important technical job you have never posted anything that would lead us to believe any of that is true Jamie. Your posts are always equivalent to the standard 16 year old troll. You blather about Chicago and link us to a youtube video that talks about liberal tears and we're supposed to believe you're a genius? Your past isn't much better, the links to a high school research paper as evidence, the links to opinion pieces written by the dumbest man on the internet and so on and so on. Your only defense is to come up with an asinine bet that involves a Las Vegas lawyer. C'mon man, just admit you're not a genius orbital engineer who does chemistry. Own up.

mike from iowa said...

Baldy your lord and saviour Drumpfuck sent feds to Chicago already. There isn't any more killing going on. Now you have to find another town whites raped and left for Blacks to clean up.

You notice how Drumpfuck defeated ISIS by calling them juvenile names.

What about the two mass shootings yesterday by black men? Not Field negro blog worthy?

Sad news.

But so is this.

Carry on.

NRA should walk with pride for this one-

Whitey wingnut taaches sons how to correctly shoot yer sister with an unloaded gun. Point and pull. What could go wrong?

At least it should be first degree murder. NRA will quickly get this guy some more guns to keep his kids safe from yucky girls.

Anonymous said...

Great post, Field. A damn shame you had to write it. Thank you!

dinthebeast said...

Mike: When I was a kid, the NRA actually taught gun safety, and you had to take their class to get your hunting license. It wasn't anything I didn't already know, but it sure didn't hurt anything to have to demonstrate knowing it before you could get a hunting license.
I think my membership lapsed in 1980.
Now I don't know what the hell they do, besides lobby for the big corporations that make guns.

They also scare the shit out of people so they will buy guns.


Flying Junior said...

One of the most important things that the NRA does today is indoctrinate school age children early to become lifelong gun owners. They do this under the guise of promoting gun safety with the popular, Eddie Eagle program. They also spend a ton of cash rallying support to oppose any and all city or state regulations that would impose local limits on gun ownership or ammo sales. Not only that, they have a fucking TV show, NRATV or something like that. It's a highly intensive propaganda machine. They take their business quite seriously.

But my personal favorite is Colion Noir. The brother leans a little to the right, but he's got his shit together.

dinthebeast said...

He makes some good points, and getting through the talking points takes a little effort, but really, that sort of effort is what it takes now to get any real news, no matter who is serving it up.
White people always seem to find black people with guns too scary to deal with. Ronald the fuck Reagan passed gun control in California after the Panthers showed up armed at the Capitol.
I mostly don't care if someone has guns as long as they are sane about it and know what they are doing.
When we lived next door to the local gang (the 38th street boys) in the late '80s, my girlfriend took three of them in the vacant lot in back and taught them the proper way to fire a handgun. She figured it would shorten the duration of the gunfights they got into and lessen the number of unintended targets, at least on one side of the fight.
It did seem to help a little, and they liked us a lot better afterward.

Ye gods.  I told you I was semi-retired eight months ago.  I said you could "call me troll if you like" over a YEAR ago.  It took you THIS long to get it?

You're as smart as a bag of hammers.

I can't wait to dig into the news and see what the dindus have been up to lately.  OBTW, don't you realize that the Boston hospital and rap "concert" shootings completely debunk your claim that only White people do such things?  You have no connection to reality, which explains why you think so highly of yourselves.
