I’ll match that, because the idea of Trump asking anyone to excuse a thing he has done, is doing, or is about to do, is absurd. It’s tantamount to an apology.
I prefer weekly hilarious outbursts of egotistical narcissism that don’t come with the risk of all-out thermonuclear war. Trump winning the election is the sort of thing that would motivate me to adjust the last couple of variables in the Drake equation down by a statistically meaningful amount.
Also, you can’t have looked too closely into his business acumen. (Not you you, just a general “you”, you know?)
“Now if you will excuse me, I am going to go home - and I have the best home, believe me - and fuck my wife.”
A lot closer to what I’d picture. Maybe “You’ll have to excuse me” so it doesn’t sound so much like we have a choice in the matter.
To paraphrase something from another thread, Donald Trump seems like a crasser version of Donald Trump.
Or just “get out of my way”.
I would also like to point out the amazing art Rob has put together for this post.
God I want this to be true. The bluff of the AstroTurf “Tea Party” never failed so spectacularly.
Never. Questioning things is for atheist commies and those people. You know them types.
I joke at the language, but after years of Bircher scum attacking public schooling, logic classes would cause the political right to freak the fuck out.
Trump doesn’t DO “concessions” of any kind. Regardless of the outcome of this election he will claim a win and hurl nasty insults at anyone who says otherwise.
But… but… the man had his own board game!! What else could you want in a Commander in Chief??
I should probably be banned from photoshop tho, before it’s too late
The ability to control themselves?
The capacity to delay gratification or consider their words?
The vocabulary of a college educated person?
Hands of normal size?
The gumption to either be bald or come out about their hair system?
The confidence to be honest about their actual net worth?
A basic grasp of why we don’t use nuclear weapons just because someone looked at us funny?
Honestly I didn’t think anyone could ever make Dick Cheney seem reasonable by comparison. It’s giving me a little vertigo to consider it at all, but there is something worse than a greedy, scheming war criminal.
The worst part is that we are probably fucked whether the orange cocksplat wins or loses.
Heeeyyy Eduardo Barreto, who I have only recently become familiar with, did many of DCs The Shadow Strikes comics, and nearly all the covers. I really ended up like his work, at least for the period. Too bad he is passed so I can’t ever get a sketch.
Hugo Chavez said pretty much the same thing on national television in 2000:
“Marisabel, tonight I will give you what is yours.”
Kindred spirits talk alike, I suppose.
Yes…but only because they are beginning to see a problem in the polls.
It’s About the Polls – Josh Marshall
I get that the Khan debacle seems particularly extreme, not only for the callousness, the violation of one of contemporary America’s gravest public taboos and more than anything else the lack of self-control and overabundance of self-destructiveness. But if Trump were polling better I’m confident we’d just be seeing more handwringing. The belief that he might actually be able to win is the glue which has bound together the bad faith, hypocrisy, fear and general derp congealing the Republican party around Trump. Absent that, everybody will start to run for the hills.
The Trump campaign is planning to pivot to a more presidential Trump so it’ll all change, just like the last few times he pivoted to be more presidential.
