Thursday Night Funnies

President Spanky met with "famous for being famous" personality, Kim Kardashian, to discuss something or other which Kardashian knows nothing about, like the schlemiel she met with in the Oval Office.

The Trump administration has announced other meetings President Spanky will have with famous personalities that will be held over the coming days:

Really? Really.

The usual trolls from various far-right blogs came running here to complain about what Samanth Bee said about Ivanka Trump. 


Is this what we've been reduced to?  One side calling the other side stupid names? And then howling about it? 

Well. Yes. 

This is Trump's America. You can thank him for making it okay to insult, denigrate, and slander those we do not agree with. Trump set the tone, and he's responsible for the deplorable things we Tweet to each other. Trump made is a new American value, starting with calling Mexicans rapists and criminals and continuing with mocking POW John McCain.

We are where we are in our national dialog because a fish stinks from the head, and we have a real stinker of a fish as our Head of State.

And in case people have forgotten, Barr called Hillary Clinton the "c" word in 2016, and none of her supporters lost their minds as they've lost their minds over what Samantha Bee said.

Everyone needs to grow up and ignore the Stinky Fish of the U>S that is currently defiling America's White House

Guess which female comedian called a woman in politics a “cunt” & faced little if any backlash from her fans and the “liberal news media”—*side eyeing *? Hint: It’s not Samantha Bee.

Valerie Jarrett comes from a family more illustrious than Barr's and Trump's combined

Neither Trump nor Barr are worthy to be in the same room with Valerie Jarrett:

"Valerie Jarrett comes from one of the most prominent African-American families in American history," O'Donnell said. It was also a family of "firsts." 

Jarrett's great-grandfather Robert Robinson Taylor is believed to be the first African-American graduate of MIT and the country's first accredited African-American architect. His son, Robert Rochon Taylor, was a housing activist who became the first African-American chairman of the Chicago Housing Authority. 

Jarrett's mother, Barbara Taylor Bowman, is an early childhood education expert for whom a Chicago street is named. Bowman "is an incredibly accomplished educator," explains producer Henry Schuster. "She's worked with some of the most prominent developmental psychologists in the world." 

Jarrett's father, Dr. James Bowman, Jr., was a groundbreaking pathologist and geneticist. In her interview, Jarrett describes hearing about his first day as a resident at what was then called St. Luke's Hospital in Chicago, where he was told that he couldn't enter the front door because of the color of his skin. He decided it was time to break the rules."

This piece of human offal...


is now, like her hero, President Spanky, blaming something else for her racist Tweet that got her worthless teevee show cancelled:

BEVERLY HILLS, CA - MARCH 10:  Actress Roseanne Barr attends The Paley Center For Media's 2014 PaleyFest Icon Award announcement at The Paley Center for Media on March 10, 2014 in Beverly Hills, California.  (Photo by Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images)

via Daily Kos:

She tweeted: "guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting -- it was memorial day too -- i went 2 far & do not want it defended -- it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please." She cited Ambien again in a later tweet, saying, "Not giving excuses for what I did(tweeted) but I've done weird stuff while on ambien -- cracked eggs on the wall at 2am etc." 

 Oddly, she later deleted all of her references to the medication. Nevertheless, Ambien became the #1 trending topic on Twitter on Wednesday morning. Barr's explanation was deemed laughable.

She deleted the Ambien references after being widely mocked online. Sanofi US, the pharmaceutical company which manufactures the sleeping medication, hit back HARD.

People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world. While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.

Let's not forget this piece of racism she wrote about another African-American woman just four years ago. Barr is a disgusting racist who absolutely meant what she wrote in both Tweets. This is Trump's America, and he's made every two-bit bigot comfortable in smearing and dehumanizing African-American men and women:


Sorry Roseanne, you can't blame medications for your "mistake." The reason youTweeted that pile of crap about Valerie Jarrett is not  because of Ambien. The reason for the Tweet is your toxic racism that oozes from every pore in your bigoted body.  You are a nasty woman, devoid of human decency and dignity.

Now get lost and stay there.

Compare and Contrast

A self-serving malignant narcissist who inserted himself,  his "ME," in Memorial Day. Because it's always about him. Happy? Memorial Day? Does Cadet Bone Spurs believe Memorial Day is a happy day for the families whose sons and daughters gave America their last full measure of devotion? :

Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!

Trump hawks his cheesy MAGA "made in China" junk on Memorial Day. 

according to trump it is also a great time to get a 25% discount on MAGA sure to use the code “REMEMBER “. God he is disgusting!


A truly dignified stateman and patriot who knows how to be inspiring and presidential:

We can never truly repay the debt we owe our fallen heroes. But we can remember them, honor their sacrifice, and affirm in our own lives those enduring ideals of justice, equality, and opportunity for which generations of Americans have given that last full measure of devotion.

Brutish Trump Regime Separates Children From Their Parents

Can you think of a more barbarous treatment than ripping children from their families and putting them in detention camps? That treatment is the very definition of state terrorism -- separating children from their families. 

That's what the Trump regime is doing. Right now. In America.

And his supporters are fine with it.

via Daily Kos:\

In one of several misleading tweets during the holiday weekend, Trump pushed Democrats to change a “horrible law” that the president said mandated separating children from parents who enter the country illegally. 

But there is no law specifically requiring the government to take such action, and it’s also the policies of his own administration that have caused the family separation that advocacy groups and Democrats say is a crisis. Some might call “misleading” a “lie,” and in this case the lie is Trump trying to pin barbaric actions on a nonexistent law. 

This policy of taking children away from their parents and then rubbing salt on the wounds by prosecuting them is the creation of the Trump administration, and absolutely no one else despite his frantic tweeting.

As he detailed the “zero-tolerance” policy during a pair of appearances May 7, Attorney General Jeff Sessions stressed: 

“If you don’t want your child separated, then don’t bring them across the border illegally. It’s not our fault that somebody does that.” “My decision has been that anyone who breaks the law will be prosecuted,” 

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in Senate testimony earlier this month. “If you’re a parent, or you’re a single person, or you happen to have a family, if you cross between the ports of entry, we will refer you for prosecution. You’ve broken U.S. law.” 

 Fact check: the administration is also separating families who have followed U.S. law by seeking asylum at U.S. ports of entry. One asylum-seeker identified as “Mr. U” entered with his 13-year-old son at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, only to be detained in California as his son was shipped off to Illinois. 

“All I can remember is how much my son and I were both crying when they took him away,”

Off to Little Rhody for the Memorial Day Weekend; but first, consider this...

Source: USA Today

William Cummings, USA TODAY Published 5:35 p.m. ET May 25, 2018 | Updated 10:09 p.m. ET May 25, 2018 

Two graduates of the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., penned an op-ed in The Baltimore Sun questioning President Trump's suitability to deliver the commencement speech to this year's graduating class of midshipmen on Friday. 

"It is right and fitting that the president of the United States give a commencement address to a service academy’s graduating class," Daniel Barkhuff and William Burke wrote in Wednesday's edition of the paper. "It is also right and fitting that citizens of the democracy for which these graduates will soon be charged with protecting point out the personal cowardice, narcissism and incompetency of the current president." 

Barkhuff and Burke graduated from the Academy in 2001. They now work at Veterans for Responsible Leadership. 

They wrote of the sacrifices made by various Naval Academy graduates, such as Sen. John McCain, over the years. 
"Contrast this to the personal and professional honor of the sitting president of the United States, who time and again makes small choices guided by self-interest, ego, impulse and immediate self-gratification," they wrote. "He could never do what we ask our U.S. Naval Academy graduates to do. He is a physical coward, a liar and no leader at all." .....

Think about what President Spanky said about Constitutionally protected speech.

“You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.” --Trump

I know that the NFL is a private corporation (that also receives subsidies from US taxpayers, so they are federally subsidized). I understand that players have to conform to the rules and regs of what the team owners set out in the players' contracts.

But I didn't know that the American people would be dumb enough to vote for a POTUS who suggests that Americans who protest an injustice should be thrown out of their own country. I expect to hear those anti-American words from Communist dictators, authoritarians, and strongmen. But those words came out of the mouth of a man who knows nothing about being an American  or what makes America great. 

New NFL Policy Requires All Players To Honor Patriotic Spirit Of Subservience That American Flag Represents

Trump makes America cringe everytime he opens his ignorant maw.
