Newsweek:

42% of the American people want President Spanky impeached.

39% of the American people approve of the job he’s doing.

More Americans want President Spanky impeached than like the job he’s doing!

MAGA! LOL!

For the Trumpistas who swooned over what Samantha Bee said about Princess Ivanka:



And don't forget, America, that President Spanky hosted The Nuge in the Oval Office shortly after he was installed there, despite his "toxic c---" remarks about Hillary Clinton.

A Fish stinks from the head. By allowing Nugent the honor of visiting the People's Oval Office, Trump condoned the sort of language Samantha Bee used to descriabe Ivanka. Trump set the tone. Trumpistas need to understand what they support and how that has unleashed the worst in America.

A fish rots from the head down. America elected a GREAT STINK and as a result it is rotting from its titular head down.

Sad...

Clearly, Bee crossed a specific line. She's not the first and won't be the last. While this trend did not start with Trump, think Nixon and his famously salty language, I believe it can credibly be argued that it has increased under this administration as people feel "freed" from the confines of political correctness.

Roseanne Barr lost her show, as she should have. Her racist comment, and let's remember, it was not her first equating of black women and apes, was appalling. Anyone who defends it and believes that type of discourse belongs in the public square is nuts. Yes, she has a right to say what she did. But ABC and the body politic in general, has a right to respond and determine the consequences.

The free market of ideas will determine whether or not her comment is/was appropriate.

The same should be true of Samantha Bee and others as well.

Both of these two women were reprehensible, as are others who use the same language, Nugent, Mooch and Trump included.

I'm no lily livered weakling on this. I know people cuss and folks call others inappropriate, sometimes horrible names. They make fun of folks behind their backs in the boardrooms and breakrooms of America everyday. And yes, both men and women do this.

But I've always expected more from our government, at least in public, and there was a time America did too. That's why we were so shocked to hear the Nixon tapes. Because they pulled back the curtain. Today, there is no curtain and our kids or our grandkids and the whole world is seeing America as a cesspool. So much for the president as a role model.

Gerald Ford did us a huge service after Watergate, mostly restoring a level of respect to the office of the presidency. I wonder who will perform that function after President Trump. Or if this is the new normal and now the presidency has been reduced to not much more than an asphalt jungle of trash talking locals trying to gain some advantage in a game of hoops.

Well Rev, you'll only have to wait 6 1/2 years to see who smooth things

Rational Nation USA said...

Yes, Bee's comment was as offensive as hell. However tRump is reaping that which he soweth. And now he is demanding Bee gets the axe. Frankly the pathetic WATB ought to STFU and reflect on the sick twisted examples he himself has engaged in and encouraged.

Dave Miller said...

Anon/Skud... I have no idea what you mean by "smooth things."

I do agree though that DJT Trump will be elected to a second term.

What will the Dems run on? More peace? A more better economy? Seriously, apart from "I'm not Trump" they've got to little publicy to offer the American ppl.

Rev, I won't confuse RN with JC if you don't confuse me with anon. I always post under my name.
Like you, I can't figure out what anon means either.

We do disagree that djt will see a second term because I don't think he will. He won because he was different and not a politician but although he has accomplished a lot in 18 months his antics have worn thin. I do agree that the dems I'm not trump will carry no weight. Trump needs the republican party to get him elected and the Trump party is just not enough. I am not sure we will see another dynasty like clinton, kennedy or bush run.

If he gets NKO to settle down and become more open do you think DJT will get the Nobel Peace Prize.

"What Barr said was worse than what Bee, the host of TBS’s “Full Frontal,” said on Wednesday’s show. One was racist, the other was offensive. Barr had no conceivable point, other than to comment on Valerie Jarrett’s supposedly simian and Muslim lineage. Bee had a point, made in a way that went far across the line of civility, about Ivanka Trump’s hypocrisy over the joys of motherhood and her complicity in her father’s cruel anti-family immigration policies." by Ruth Marcus

Not in My mind it wasn’t.
And eve if it was, why must they be equal?
Why isn’t one just as bad as the ot!

J.M.O. If you don't know why, you're probably a far-right wing Trumpista.

Most women I know hate that word used in reference to them. If I ever called my wife that I better duct because something heavy is headed my way. I wouldn't call any women that out of respect. I guess it is acceptable for women to call each other that just like blacks can use the N word but no one else can. If you don't respect yourself and your gender/race it is difficult to show respect for others

Mighty early for that prediction.

Interesting comment, skud.

But what are your thoughts on a POTUS who refers to women as pigs, fat, disgusting, and brags about grabbing them by their pussies?

Trump has made it okay for anyone to talk like a pig, because he's set the tone, remember when he called football players "sons-of-bitches," and said mariching Nazis where "some very nice people?" When the leader of a country speaks like a common guttersnipe, don't be surprised when the "C" word is used publicly.

Trump has brought this to America by his own white trash behavior.

skudrunner said...

If anyone uses tRump as a social barometer they need to change their role models. He is an unfiltered baboon but I still believe nothing he says is unplanned including comments about women. The big difference is the comments he said on tape were private, bee and rosane were not and bee was prerecorded.

Clinton redefined what sex is an that is acceptable to use your position to take advantage of a young women. Even obama the great undermined respect for law enforcement so no president is without changing the norms in this country. We will have trump for another two years and the media will attack at every opportunity he gives them, which is many and often.

Kevin Robbins said...

Obama undermined respect for law enforcement? Must've been the tan suit.

Kevin Robbins said...

Barack Obama is currently ranked by actual historians, not internet trolls of any stripe, at number 8 all-time.

I suspect, at the very least, Donald Trump has broken financial laws such as money laundering. If he has, it would be a travesty for him not to see the inside of a prison cell. I can't picture a US president going to jail for any reason, though. So, I'll probably have to be content in the knowledge that Obama will go down in history as a top-tier president and Trump will be known as Putin's bitch. Apologies to female dogs for the comparison to the Traitor in Chief.

Kevin Robbins said...

It may just be my faulty memory, but I don't recall whataboutism being so prevalent before the Muscovite Candidate was crowned. You can't get into a discussion with anyone on the right without a whatabout Obama or the Clintons.
