It’s nice that Mexicans like Lin-Manuel Miranda can take a break from doing all that raping to pay respect to our next President. People like him will get Trump’s Gold Deportation Package, with complementary Trump steak and Trump water for their last meal in America (Trump wine available for nominal extra fee).*

 

  • Trump 2016!

Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart—you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you’re a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what’s going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it’s all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don’t, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.

wait, what? can you repeat that middle part, sir?

actually, i was wondering about all the people around him. i wasn’t sure they were in on it until the end, and i was wondering why nobody seemed to be paying attention or even glancing at him.

Proust has sentences that long, but his make sense.


#6

Some of them are in those taco trucks that are parked on every corner.


#7

I keep getting Trump whine for free. How do I send it back?


#8

Such deplorable words. Sad!


#9

There is opportunity to make him eat his words, in just over a month.


#10

Cocaine is a hell of a drug.


#11

I expect his natural word salad is why Twitter has been a successful platform for Trump. By focusing on a single point without the expectation of backing up anything (no history, no facts, no knowledge), it works for him.


#12

Definitely corked…
