A round up of Trumpian events 🖕🍊🤡


Nope, I think this might be the last straw




And now, for the fallout…


I knew that President Obama had invested $3 billion more in HBCUs in his first six years than President Bush invested in his final six years. Therefore, since President Trump pledged to “do more for HBCUs than any other president has done before,” we could have reasonably expected him to get started by announcing at least an additional $500 million to HBCUs…this year! And beside the expectation of new funding, there was advance talk of changes[…]

But, instead of the long-awaited executive order containing or signaling any of those outcomes, the key change is a symbolic shift of the White House HBCU Initiative from the Department of Education to the White House. It is not possible to measure the impact of this gesture anytime soon, if ever.


I’ve been going easy on her because I have felt that Melania is along for the ride she didn’t sign up for, but seriously? She wore 5 inch heels to read books to children? I guess baby steps - maybe being forced to interact with the hoi poloi they claim to love so much will actually make the Trumps become appreciative of what they have and turn them into useful people.


Maybe there is some self-awareness in Melania. But that still sounds like a most depressing relationship, more transactional than humane.


And, I imagine that if the kids had felt comfortable with her, they would have asked to see the pictures. I made that mistake for about 3 and a half seconds the first time I read my niece a book, and she did not hesitate to tell me that she needed to see the pictures (which, of course, duh). Then again, I wasn’t some weird stranger, coming into an already fraught situation, so there’s that.


Who knows?

Melania makes an appearance at New York University. A student asks if her husband weren’t rich, would she still be with him. She replies, “If I weren’t beautiful, do you think he’d be with me?”


Apparently Sean Spicer was a furry.


Gotta give her props for owning it. Fuck yeah I’m gorgeous! It’s my currency. I’m spending it. Sadly, from where I’m at, it looks like a bad buy. But then, those situations often look like a bad deal for the lady to me.


You’d think that, from time to time, the “family values” party would stop for a minute after proposing to do something as fundamentally evil as tearing families apart, and think…


Does it come with a Death Blossom load-out?


I have no problem with furries or people that volunteer for children’s events. Anyone other than this enabler of lies and my response would have been awe… how sweet.

But fuck Spicer in his dirty bunny ass. The PEETUS can sort of excuse all of his terrible behavior on being a broken human that doesn’t know how to empathize for other humans. But Spicer knows how fucked up his boss is and continues to show up for work and try to normalize psychotic executive orders.




I’ll own up to being weird, but in our family, everyone is weird. My sister was odd-man-out for a long time because she was a cheerleader and class president, but she’s cool.

OK, and maybe I am stranger than some. Fine, WHATEVER~!


Speaking of which:

2 parts almond milk, 1 part amaretto.

Try it now, thank me later


I actually have both of those ingredients…but have been drinking since the concert finished earlier, and it’s now 12:30am.

Could you remind me of that recipe tomorrow evening, please? I’ll be ready then to test it out. :smile::cocktail:



Former obstetrician turned Congressperson. Is that because none of his patients would let him touch them after they got to know him?
