A round up of Trumpian events πŸ–•πŸŠπŸ€‘

My parents made Alien jokes when my mom was pregnant with me too. I think there’s a substantive difference between making chestburster jokes because your dinner plate wobbles when you put it on your belly and a guy standing up on the floor of the state assembly reducing women to the term β€œhost body” in the context of pregnancy and abortion.

So is mine, but knowing her, I’m not suprised. :grin:


#9629

β€œHost body?” Not even β€œHuman host?” Does the XX state render one not a functioning human? Holy shit, this is infuriating.


#9630

Meanwhile, Pelosi, who is notably not on the list of supporters, continues to play dumb:

β€œDon’t tear down the ACA” as an argument for avoiding the obvious, simple solution to our country’s still-ballooning health care costs is the most egocentric bullshit imaginable. Sure, the ACA is better than what we had pre-2010. But the bar for improvement was so fucking low that passing a 600-page stack of shit-smeared blank paper would have been better too.


#9631

What was that fake name he used to call into radio shows?


#9632

It would be endlessly amusing if it turned out Trump had personally forged the nominations. Just tack it on to his rap sheet.


#9633

Obligs:

NSFW lyrics.

I’m sorry. I’ll see myself out…

#9636

A pro-Confederacy group in South Carolina must break up, and if they ever get back together they must pay a black mother and her two children $3 million for posting pictures of the children holding Confederate memorabilia without their mother’s permission, a judge ruled… The Secessionist Party was holding a rally to support the Confederate flag in Charleston in June 2017, and the children were at a picnic nearby with their family when they and other children were attracted to a firetruck, according to the lawsuit.
A member of the Secessionist Party came up to the 7-year-old and the 8-year-old, gave them a small Confederate flag and told them to hold it low and against their body so their mother couldn’t see it, then took their pictures, the lawsuit said.


#9637

I know for a fact that they do have the money. People IK working for the Rand Corporation are writing papers on how to spend it right now.

That letter is bullshit.


#9638

Assholes will asshole. In this instance, there were actual consequences. I like this.


#9639

Hey look. He’s blaming everybody except himself for his fuckups




#9640

In other news, Trump sucks. Shocking, I know, but there it is.


#9641

#9642


#9643

I’m going to burn mine.


#9644

Well look who got their cooties all over it. It’s the only way to be sure.


#9645

Such a blatantly cynical act of political theater. He treats his acolytes like children. Unfortunately, in terms of their political beliefs, and emotions, that’s just about the right level for them.


#9646

What’s the protocol after someone has humped the flag? Respectful burning?
