Hyperbole

I been from Maine to Spokane and Austin to Boston.

I been up the creek and over the mountain.

I seen 10 acres of sheep fuckin’ in a 1-acre field.

But I ain’t never seen anything like today’s Beelzebozo press conference.

    He’s delusional. He was all over the place.

      It must be fun, being the food taster for King Donald the Short-fingered.

      “Jesus, another Big Mac? This one better be poisoned. Otherwise, just fucking shoot me before it takes a village to carry my casket.”

  2. Stan Thomas Says:

    Yeah, I saw a couple of minutes on BBC News (that’s all I could take). Like something out of 1984.
    “Don’t question me, don’t listen to anyone else, I’m the only one telling the truth. And I’ll shout down (or kick out) anyone who dares to talk back.”

    You’ve got your finger on the pulse; any sign of a backlash from his supporters?

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      I could only bear a few minutes myself. I mean, I’m used to seeing homeless guys talking like that on downtown street corners, but even when the Republicans win one expects a higher standard of raving delusion from the president.

      I dunno how this is playing with his base. A fair chunk of ’em don’t believe the press anyway — “I Don’t Believe the Liberal Media” is a popular bumper sticker in Trumpistan — but some of the brighter bulbs in this fascist chandelier must be catching on by now.

      Update: Here’s a factoid for us. Not reassuring.

    If the Elefinks who control Congress don’t do something about this loose cannon, sooner or later they will be getting a whiff of grapeshot too.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      I think those pendejos still believe they can get him to sign off on their extensive wish list for dismantling what’s left of the Republic and auctioning it off to the highest bidder.

      After that, all bets are off. I bet articles of impeachment are already in first- or second-draft form. And people other than Your Humble Narrator have begun discussing Amendment XXV, Section 4.

      • khal spencer Says:

        I recall from reading William Shirer and a couple other authors that the industrialists in Germany thought that they could get that crazy guy Schickelgruber to do their bidding, too. Funny how that worked out.

        25th Amendment indeed. Sure does beat “Second Amendment Solutions” offered by that crazy lady Sharron Angle.

      Khal – I’ve called the ones who are supposed to be representing me in DeeCee every week since Orange Julius Caesar’s “amazing, sold-out, standing-room only, biggest ever, etc.” inauguration.
      So far all I’ve gotten is answering machines and an argument from a Steve King staffer almost as nonsensical as this OJC press conference. Gawd help us!

      • khal spencer Says:

        This is scary. All of my DeeCee folks are Dems so they need no convincing that this guy is trouble. Now, about the rest of the country.

        To some degree the Donks are going to have to take a deep breath and broaden the tent. I had a friend come back from vacation in Northern Michigan shortly before the election and she said she had seen traditional blue areas in her home state turn red. Frankly, we need to get those “Baskets of Deplorables” in the Rust Belt back from the Dark Side. Low info voters don’t realize they are selling out their own interests and I’m not sure how to convince them to come back.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        That’s gonna be a tough hustle, K. The old tactics still work depressingly well: “The [insert your race/political party/gender/religion here] are coming for your [insert jobs, families and/or guns here]!”

      • khal spencer Says:

        What amazed me is that my old man, an NRA lifer at the benefactor level, refused to vote for Orange Crush. If he can see through the BS, so can anyone else.

  4. matlinp Says:

    I will not be watching the news or the talking heads tonight – to relive even one minute of that delusional debacle is beyond cruel and unusual punishment. Lawdy, I’m thinking of asking April Ryan to fetch me a cup o’ coffee.

  5. Steve O Says:

    When John Dean says you’re the greatest threat to national security, you might want ponder whether history considers Nixon a winner. Dude is going up on Bizaro Rushmore with Chuckles, Filmore, and Buchanan.

  6. larryatcycleitalia Says:

    This proved one thing – KellyAnne Cornflakes conveys Orange Julius Caesar’s ideas (well, more like brain farts) very well. I feel sorry for the press people who have to watch and listen to this blathering every day. Gawd help us all!

  7. Dale Says:

    Been reading about the bizarre murder of Kim Jong Nam in Malaysia. Kind of wondering if Donald Jr. is concerned about his brother-in-law.

  8. Pat O'Brien Says:

    I can’t wait to see what John Oliver does with this latest trumper tantrum.

  9. Sharon Says:

    Starting…or should I say continuing to unravel. This is what happens when you tell so many lies you can’t remember the truth… scary what lies ahead.

  10. Steve O Says:

    Here’s the thing … we all know there are brilliant policy wonks who don’t have good TV personalities, come across the wrong way. But there is zero chance Trump has his shit together in private conferences but only loses it on stage.

    So these folks in his inner circle, they see this shit for 16 hours every day and still want to work for him.

    What the fuck?

    It’s like you got a room full of Timothy Treadwells, all convincing themselves this grizzly won’t eat them. How long can this show go on?

  11. Herb Clevenger Says:

    Why all the focus on Adolph Trump? He will be gone in less than a year. Then the REAL enemy takes over and that is the Republican Party who is using Adolph Trump as a shiny diversion while they pork us royally. All outrage should be channeled and focused on your local and regional Republicans who believe they have some form of mandate. While we titter about Trump has anyone noticed what crimes and misdemeanors are being rammed down your throats by Congress? If you want change it will be a battle at street (local) level and not in Washington.

    • Dale Says:

      Herb has it right. Until the school boards, the city councils, the county councils, the state representatives and senators, and the governors are contested by viable candidates with sane agendas (not necessarily the agendas that you approve of in total), the right will prevail.

      The right has done a fantastic job of getting people to vote against their best interests, and they have done it since Richard Nixon was president. They have gotten better at it over the years by working local.
