Oh Donny Boy


h/t PM Carpenter


File under "Can Trump Do ANYTHING Right?"

Trump loves to pass himself off as a devout Christian, so when asked to quote his favorite Bible verse during his campaign for the presidency, he said "Two Corinthians," which made people who know their Bible understand that Trump is a fake and knows little to nothing about the Bible. However, that didn't stop his supporters, who claim to be Christian, from adoring the phony nonsense coming out of this clown's mouth. 

Today is St. Patrick's Day, a happy day for the Irish, and yesterday Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny was treated to Trump's "favorite Irish proverb" as part of Trump's St. Patrick's Day celebration. 

Only problem? 

The "proverb" is actually a poem, and it is not Irish, it was written by a 30-year old Nigerian. 

The question now is:  Is Trump's staff deliberately trolling him? Trump looked like a clown again with his foolish claim of a Nigerian poem being his favorite Irish proverb. 

 Read it all here, and then read the witheringly funny Tweets that followed this FUBAR.

Here's a real Irish proverb:

I’ve got some Irish wisdom for him.

Nirbat dergnat chuirmthigi
nir·fhácba do chlothaige;
nirbat muichnech i n-úathad
nirbat búaibnech sochaide.


You should not be an ale-house flea.
You should not give up your reputation.
You should not mope in solitude.
You should not boast in a crowd.

Paul and Finn, Thanks.

Trump Straight Up Ignores Request To Shake Hands With Angela Merkel

President Donald Trump has shown he can smile for the cameras while sitting next to world leaders he doesn’t exactly see eye to eye with. But when it came to shaking hands during a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday ... game over.

He let a press gaggle into the Oval Office, and videos of the interaction, which lasted about a minute, showed both leaders making awkward, surly faces.

“Can we get a handshake?” one member of the press asked. Merkel looked in Trump’s direction. He didn’t budge and most certainly didn’t return her gaze.

What a petty little snot.

Did you see how Drumpf behaved today with Angela Merkel? So far, four world leaders have met him and been totally disgusted by him he is such an idiot making enemies of world leaders because all the fool can talk about is himself he has no clue about anything, it's a sad state of affairs for America to have this piece of crud as the president. He is alienating everyone who has any sense and who can string two coherent sentences together, they all know he is a useless pile of shit but a dangerous one because of his stupidity

You know it's an embarrassing day in America when Meals on Wheels is pleading on Twitter to not take away funding for their program, while that piece of sh*t gets to spend millions in tax dollars going to his cocaine palace on weekends and housing his wife in NYC because she refuses to be near her sexual assaulting husband. I will never stop reminding T^ump supporters what they voted for.

You can remind them Anonymous, but it's a waste of time. Particularly with the hard core trumpanzees who admire and respect the jackass. They are blind, deaf, and dumb to his stupidity. It's just the way it is.

Jerry, I didn't know that. Thanks for posting.

And thank you for that profound musical setting. I bet Boston was hopping for St. Pattie's Day!
