(sigh)

I remember the angry outrage conservatives drummed up that “Obama was taking credit for something he didn’t do”, and here we have Trump complaining about how he never gets any credit.

Parody and that thin line have been trashed.

Forget making Obama look dignified and thoughtful, Biff makes Camacho look like a better option.

What, like this:

(There’s always a tweet.)

Yet again, the breath-taking hypocrisy. Especially since Trump’s rogue actions wrt Syria almost prevented the operation from taking place (and it had to be rushed, as they were losing their window, thanks to him). Then he staged a picture several hours after the fact, trying to pretend he was commanding the operation, so he could have something like the Obama photo. On top of which he then overshared operational details (making future operations more difficult) and made up shit that’s just going to inflame ISIS.

I have to give a like to any post that mentions the great Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.

Nice looping spirals would be too easy.

The whole idea that we have a leader of a country effectively dancing on the grave of a deadman does not bode well for the integrity or sense of humanity in our leadership. The fact that you have two composed in contrast as a comedy routine gaining laughs and entertainment, it’s really quite shameful. I shudder to think that we don’t pause and look at the fact that this is debasing our common humanity.

As much as I agree with you, I still think a warrentless bombing of a 16 y/o still was a foot along the path to where we are today. That took place under Obama. Who won The Nobel peace prize as well as being a scholar of the U.S. constitution. The trend in prosecuting journalists, the term “Deporter in Cheif” these too started under Obama. I want to agree with you and draw a stark contrast to Obama and Trump, however, these facts give me pause. Regardless of party, leadership needs to be held accountable to us all.

Please god. Are you equating these two? Did you watch the video??

Please just stop. The only saving grace is the graveyard humor in it. I told my children tonight the following: Your rule in life is simple, just be the opposite of Trump. Ask yourself WWTD? and do the opposite every time, and you will gain respect and love.

The reason why many of us are deranged is that we elected a person to the highest office in the land that is exactly the opposite of what our parents, church, teachers, clubs, and leaders are taught us to be. Why? Because we wanted to burn it all down.

We all know Obama did some bad things. Trump does nothing but bad things.

And we laugh at it!??

“May got Bless the United States of America”
Vs.
“I’m writing a book”

I’m not sure which I prefer:

  1. The smooth delivery of a reasoned explanation of why the United States killed somebody without trial
  2. The ravings of an egocentric megalomaniac

Do you?

In any case, for the record I find Trump entirely repugnant and no comparison to Obama in terms of character.

Extrajudicial killings are a dick move. It was a dick move when Obama did it, its still a dick move when Trump does it. You want to use government resources to kill someone, you give them a trial first. You want to claim its an act of war, fucking get congress to declare war already!

Trump being a buffoon must not distract from the violation of international law.

We get it. You’re better than us. Well done.

Because clearly satire is what’s wrong with the world. /s
