A get well wish, and the White House digs in.

TWEET MESorry to hear that Melania trump was in the hospital having emergency surgery on her kidney. I hope she gets well soon.

I was not surprised, though, to learn that her husband was not by her side for the surgery, and when she needed him most. Apparently her friends were "blind-sided".  Frankly, I am not sure why. You would think that they would know what type of man their friend married by now.

Fellows, I am not sure about you, but I can't imagine my wife going in for surgery where she will be put to sleep and I am not there. The Mrs. would never forgive me, and I wouldn't blame her if she didn't. 

But hey, this is  Donald trump we are talking about. This man thinks of nothing but himself. I suspect that only his daughter, Ivanka (with whom he has a sick obsession) has a shot of being of any importance to him.  And I am pretty sure that he would take the last life-vest if they were the only two people left on a sinking ship. 

Finally, we are now in day five of trump's White House refusing to apologize to the McCain family for what was said about the man at an internal meeting.

Make no mistake, this is all about the leader of that deplorable crew and his unwillingness to apologize for some of the most reprehensible things that he has said  and done in the past.  His White House is more concerned about the leak itself than what was actually said.

He perpetrated a racist lie for years about the former president and refused to apologize to him or his family, and only grudgingly admitted that he was wrong for political expediency. So if I was a member of the McCain family I would not hold my breath.

And the sad part about it is his people love it. We are at a sad state of affairs but hopefully we'll make a comeback as a nation and someone can truly MAGA.

And if Trump DID run off to Walter Reed to be useless while his wife was under anaesthesia and had no awareness of where he was, you'd accuse him of neglecting the country.  He has a bunch of family for her, but HE is the prez.

We are wise to your stupid rhetorical gotcha-games.  Just go away already.

Steve Schmidt, former McCain campaign manager and late-to-the-party purveyor of such wisdom as was found on any liberal blog one cared to read circa 2005, is apparently kinda pissed about Fergus' minions verbal malfunctions concerning his former boss.

He just went on the most dead-panned tirade against the pair of Christopaths they invited to the, uh, ceremony in Israel and decried the whole fiasco as a desperate political move to avoid a bloodbath in the midterms, and laid the whole stinking mess at Fergus' feet.

Missing from his righteous indignance was any mea culpa for or acknowledgement of his own role in the construction of the party that spawned the monster he was inveighing against.

So, yeah, Steve, all of that is indeed true, and to your credit your former boss did distance himself from the worst of the god-botherers before he gave in and embraced them, they are the modern version of the Pharisees or some such horse shit (they are actually their own brand of snake-oil salesmen selling a product so toxic as to make its consumers so crazy that they are horny for the end of the world, but if you want to call 'em Pharisees, go ahead) but the thing is, Steve, not only could we liberals have told you that at any point since, say, the heyday of Jerry Falwell, we did in fact tell you, your boss, and the rest of the despicable crew you spent your entire adult life in the service of, over and over and over again.
And for our trouble? We were excoriated as traitors, fifth-columnists, and communist loving surrender monkeys so as to better please the bigoted idiot hordes you pulled into your party after we ran them off with civil rights legislation.

And then? FERGUS!

Who could have guessed that such a cad could be elevated to the head of your venerable party?
Uh, we did. Guessed right out loud to all y'all again and again.

So Steve? It's nice to have you saying things we agree with on the teevee machine and all, but if you want to be on our team against the monster, you have to say the magic words:
"Liberals have been right about the right all along, and I will do anything I can to make up for my complicity in the creation of this crime against the republic."

And if that is too much for you to handle, just sorta quietly debrief yourself to Democratic party operatives about any Republican strategies you are privy to due to your long association with the bastards.

What is not now and never will be acceptable is you parroting our ideas as an attempt at the construction of a goddamn lifeboat in which to escape your responsibility for this bullshit. You know, like Sarah the fuck Palin? That was on your watch, and whether you loved it or hated it you still cashed your paychecks issued by it, so you can spare me the high horse act if you please.

I was surprised -- I'd have guessed DJT would be there for appearances sake if nothing else.

And I never expected to feel sad for someone like Melania (ie, who married a chowderhead like DJT for, I would guess, the money, housing, jets, etc) but I do. What a shitty life her's appears to be. And yeah, I know that she's smart and she seems to've gone into the marriage with her eyes wide open. But still ...

Flying Junior said...

Not only is there no forthcoming apology for Ms. Sadler's insensitive remark, the monster actually took to Twitter to decry the unknown leaker as a coward.

So the bitch didn't even have the courage to say it publicly. It was an off-hand remark to some other assholes in the WH who hate McCain just because he is one of the three republicans who have dared to stand up to Trump.

She's not smart enough to imagine just for a moment what it must feel like to be helpless in the hands of cruel and sadistic RW American torturers.

Coward, huh? FUCK YOU TRUMP.

Like a Gina Haspel after a lobotomy. Nothing left but blind loyalty.

“I love the hypocrisy of the liberal left on how they wish ill will on the First Lady, and then claim they are the ‘good’ people(Nazi).”

No, not true.

Not many people on the left wish ill will on Melania. They may have a laugh about her tendency to plagiarize speeches from Michelle Obama (seriously, her staff can give her no better instructions on how to be a first lady, other than “just copy Michelle”?). They may point out the hilarious irony of her decision to start an anti-bullying initiative while married to a mega-bully. They may speculate about the possibility — no, the certainty — that she married Donald’s bank account and actually can’t stand the man himself. But they do not HATE her, and are not, in fact, wishing for bad things to befall her.

This stands in contrast to how the left views her husband. The left unapologetically would like Trump to get hit by a truck. And then have it back over him five or six times.

”Wonder why Drumpfuck is saving Chinese jobs no one in America wants saved? A few days ago China agreed to loan 500 million to Drumopfuck's Indonesian project.Nice quid pro quo.”

Personal gain is one possible motive.

But part of it is likely to just be Trump getting slapped in the face with reality: His go-it-alone foreign policy has consequences for America and those consequences are bad (the trade consequences of trying to punish China, and everyone else, for sticking to the Iran nuke deal will be extremely bad). He is going to discover that there are reasons why international agreements were created in the first place, besides: “wimpy liberals won’t stand up for American interests.”

So expect a lot of Trump trying to walk back his belligerence as the shit hits the fan, while pretending he’s not doing that.

Trump (2016/2017): Fuck you and you and you and you and you. And that country over there as well.

Trump (later): Oh, I didn’t mean you. Or you, either. Wait, you took it the wrong way. You miunderstood! Guys, come back!

Yeah, besides the quid pro quo, the ZTE thing is apparently part of a deal he's trying to do that would avoid retaliatory tariffs of agricultural products and other stuff because of his steel and aluminum tariffs. Problem is they are currently sanctioned, not tariffed, for national security reasons (read that they sold US sourced parts to Iran and North Korea).

"This is partof Mrs. Trump's "Pee Best" campaign."

Or perhaps her efforts at keeping up with the output of Russian hookers has left her kidneys injured...

Not surprising that Trump wouldn't visit her.

She refuses to hold his hand in public.

“Problem is they are currently sanctioned, not tariffed, for national security reasons (read that they sold US sourced parts to Iran and North Korea).”

Basically, this is the first of many instances of coming fallout from Trump trying to shred the Iran nuke deal. Everybody had started doing business with Iran again because that’s what the deal said. But now Trump is saying the deal is off, so that means the US must punish with sanctions anyone who does business with Iran.

The effect of this for ZTE will be dire. Because they engage in a ton of trade with the US, our sanctions will effectively put them out of business. Now, imagine another country decided to destroy a major American company — let’s say Ford or McDonalds — for some irrational ideological reason purely to satisfy their version of redneck moron voters. The demands here for revenge would be enormous. So China will naturally retaliate if Trump doesn’t walk this back.

The same thing will play out with European companies, and the EU will also want revenge. In fact, the EU is presently gaming out elaborate anti-America revenge plans.

Trump’s attitude toward Iran alone will cause a trade war, and that’s without considering any of his idiotic ideas about trade itself.

Nobody will win the fights he is starting; literally everyone will be a loser.

White House doesn't need a get well. It needs a frame off, total reconstruction after 6 months of fumigation to get rid of the stench and corruption of stoopid fucking wingnuts.

Obamas took care of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Drumpf stunk up the place the minute he slimed his fat ass in there. There went that neighborhood. Wasicu trailer trash in all its glory.

He probably gave her something,bet the surgery was free!!!!!!!!!!!

Flying Junior said...

Regarding the tariffs, surely one of the most reckless and destructive fiats ever issued by the monster: There are something like 3,000 U.S. companies, mostly in manufacturing, some of which are doing very fine machine work, others no doubt in a plethora of industries that use steel, that have sent petitions to the Trump administration begging for an exemption to the crushing steel tariff. Maybe Trump has granted some temporary quotas to the EU, I'm not sure.

So a typical example of one of these companies has already looked for sources of steel in the U.S. and perhaps all over the world. They have found a particular supplier that suits their needs in Europe or China. All of a sudden the monster slaps this outrageous 30% tariff on steel imports. Most of these companies are looking at downsizing or simply being put out of business.

So the monster is in his glory. He sees himself as a beneficent dictator or Don Corleone, if you will, granting favors only to those willing to kiss his ring or those within his circle of influence.

How the fuck did we ever let this happen?

North Korea says it could reconsider Trump summit if US insists it give up nuclear weapons

The vaunted North Korea summit hasn’t even happened yet, and ... #TrumpFail.

dinthebeast said...

The North Koreans have backed out of the summit with South Korea and say they will do likewise with the Fergus meeting if the US and South Koreans go ahead with this year's military exercises. That's even before the whole nuclear weapons question is considered.
Gee, it sure would be nice if we had a functioning state department right about now.

And yeah, a brace of little Ferguslets are crying the goddamn blues right now over the devastation their businesses are about to suffer at Fergus' tiny, incompetent hands.

We told you this would happen, and you elected him anyway. Have fun, fuckers. You have no excuses for this. And we would feel more empathy for y'all if you weren't STILL SUPPORTING the stupid bastard.

Flying Junior said...

A brace? These are thousands of businesses. And you guessed it. The typical business owners whole-heartedly supported Trump and most likely still do, even though they understand that they are personally taking it up the rump with Trump's reckless and purposelessly destructive policies. Some of his polices are meant to enrich himself and his cronies. Some are just done out of sheer spite, hatred or stupidity. Stupidity being the number one motivation for his amoebic views on world trade. I think Chicken Little made a great deal more sense than some pampered pussy who can only cry about trade imbalances. The mental midget didn't even know that Japanese car manufacturers were building cars in several states in the U.S.

That's the very definition of uninformed. Unfit for office. Trelane, Squire of Gothos would make a more intelligent, informed and suitable president of the U.S.A.

I'm going to write my thoughts on Korea on a separate comment.

Flying Junior said...

Well, Okay Folks, Here it Is!

From what I just heard, Kim Jong-Un has just promised to perform a magnificent photo-op for Trump and his hot-air balloon ego. According to the BBC, Jong-Un has pledged to destroy its nuclear site.

RW media sources are quick to celebrate this gesture, even being led to pluralize the word, "site."

Problem being that the Punggye-ri site was apparently already damaged or destroyed by the most recent test of an H-bomb. The photo-up will include destruction of underground tunnels by explosion, all-in-all a wonderful monument to Trump's greatest legacy-to-be, peace with NK. (Author's side note: Some might equate an armistice with peace, especially in view of the fact that there have not been any military actions taken since 1953.) Listening to the RW nut-jobs, one might think that North Korea was already a member of the world community in good standing. Trump has brought about peace where the feckless liberal, Obama has failed utterly.

But a far more likely outcome is, of course, that Jong-Un will pwn the vainglorious DJT with fawning praise whilst the POTUS, succumbing to flattery, proceeds to give away the store with absolutely no tangible rapprochement from the fat, little Korean dictator whatsoever.

What think you?

Flying Junior said...

And even more fishy-smelling, this destruction of the nuclear testing, "site," is to occur before the end of the month.

You know, before the much-vaunted summit. This summit may prove to be the single most embarrassing moment in the history of our democracy. OTOH, the two dictators might get along as if scripted in a comedy sketch. BFF.
