๐Ÿ˜ Two Snarky Snippets ๐Ÿ˜

I just seem to be full of snark these days, donโ€™t I?ย  These two crossed my path and I found myself unable to resist them!ย  I am working on a more serious piece at the moment, but these two little snippets gave me an interlude of mirth, and so I had to share them with you all!


Out of the Mouths of Babes โ€ฆ

huntsmanAbby Huntsman is a general assignment reporter for Fox News Channel. She currently co-hosts Fox & Friends Weekend.ย  In addition, Ms. Huntsman is the daughter of US ambassador to Russia and former Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman.

On Saturday, Huntsman had none other than Trumpโ€™s former communications director, Anthony Scaramucci on Fox & Friends, when she said this โ€ฆ

โ€œAnthony, talk to us about this moment. I mean, this is history, we are living history. Regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators, what we are seeing right now, this is history.โ€

Did you hear it, folks???ย  She plainly said โ€œmeeting between the two dictators.โ€

The word, once spoken, can never be unspoken, and once heard, can never be unheard.ย  This word was heard โ€˜round the world, and when I read it on The Guardian, I literally let out a WHOOP!!! ย GOTCHA!!!

Scaramucci didnโ€™t catch her โ€˜faux pasโ€™ either, but somebody backstage must have, for later in the show, Huntsman apologized โ€ฆ

โ€œI do want to point out that earlier, as you know sometimes on live TV sometimes you donโ€™t always say things perfectly. I called both President Trump and Kim Jong-un a dictator. I did not mean that, my mistake, so I apologise for that.โ€

Yeah, right, sweet cheeks!ย  And by the way โ€ฆ I have a beautiful bridge in Brooklyn for sale real cheap!

Trump, as of this writing, had not responded to Huntsmanโ€™s Freudian slip, but many others did โ€ฆ

โ€œAbby Huntsman calls it a โ€œmeeting between two dictators.โ€ย  Believe it.ย  We are here!โ€ โ€“ Amy Siskind

โ€œ#TwoDictators walk into a bar.ย  The short one says; “I like your hair”, the tall one says “did you see the size of my crowd”.โ€


Know your deplorables โ€ฆ

Quite by accident I stumbled across this little gem on Amazon this morning.

deplorables-1deplorables-2deplorables-3Yes, folks, it is a deck of playing cards featuring such utterly deplorables as Kellyanne Conway, Ivanka, Jeff Sessions, Jared Kushner, Sean Hannity, and of course, that #1 deplorable, Donald Trump himself!ย  At only $9.99, this is a must have!ย  I am considering ordering a case and giving a pack to all my friends!

Details:

Sold by A Patriotic LLC and Fulfilled by Amazon. Gift-wrap available.

Standard poker-sized (2.5″ x 3.5″) deck of 52 playing cards, plus 2 jokers

Information about a different deplorable political figure on each card

A portion of sales donated to nonprofits that support freedom of the press

The top positive review reads:

โ€œExtremely well-done — the information is good (the pack includes citations!), the logic is solid, and the print quality is very high. The only thing this deck can’t do is self-update, but then again, every member of the Resistance can enjoy putting an X on individual cards as this feckless administration carries on with its personnel shenanigans…and as Mueller time draws nigh.โ€


Well, back to work for me … I hope you enjoyed these two little gems!ย  Have a great day!

  1. ‘It’s fake news I tell you! It’s not the real Abby Huntsman! I have documents to prove this Amadeus T. Hillengsprout a notorious female impersonator in the pay of the NSA and the FBI. It is also a recorded fact that in the guise of a blonde dominatrix he was paid to seduce three Whitehouse aides by placing narcotics in their drinks at a party and then arranging for the whole thing to be filmed! I have the documents to prove it!’
    ‘Thank you Alex Jones. No, you don’t have to get the documents out of ‘there’ just now! Please don’t lower your trousers Mr Jones’ (Someone start the commercials for Pity’s sake!)

    • ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿคฃ Oh my, Roger!!! I nearly choked on this one!!! Once again, you should be doing a “Jimmy Kimmel” type show, for you are even funnier than he is!!! Interesting, isn’t it, that not a word from Trump or any of the Fox staff about her ‘Freudian slip’. Makes one wonder … ๐Ÿค”

      • Thanks Jill! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ…..(pause for award ceremonies type speech)….Y’know I couldn’t do it without those wonderful wackos who make writing this stuff so easy.
        Anyway, for once Trump’s team might be doing something sensible…..not saying anything about it and hope everyone forgets it. (It’s Gaff-Limitation 101)โ€ฆ.and concentrates on the handshake. (yeah!)๐Ÿค”

        • Yes, the wackos do keep us in material, don’t they. Shucks, I’d have to go back to cooking, cleaning, reading and spending time with friends if these guys ever exit center stage. And I don’t know that they were so much being sensible as … well, if they called her on it, they would have to eat one of their own! ๐Ÿคค

                    This is going to be a problem for those republicans who did not support the current administration and its supporters. They are tainted with the same brush, despite what they may say or do.
                    I can sympathise with them. Being in one party does not make you the bad or the good guy. There are folk running about the UK’s Labour Party I would not want to go near and I feel are a disgrace to Socialism. There are conservatives (Tories) who I would categories under ‘Hmmm…..ok…I get it’
                    I try to constantly remember New Testament Matthew 7 verse 16:
                    “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”
                    Which has morphed over the years into ‘By Their Deeds You Shall Know Them,’ .
                    Our world grows more difficult by the day.

                    • I know you are right, and my comment was over-the-line in snarky … chalk it up to another overwhelming news week, I suppose, but I do know better. But you’re right … it has become all too common to stereotype people, put them in little boxes based on them being affiliated with one party or the other. I see it getting worse and worse, too, and am not sure what it takes to change it, to get people to judge others by their ‘deeds’ rather than the labels that are applied by society. If we ever figure out that key, then we can bring about world peace, I think! ๐ŸŒ

  2. A gaffe, or maybe honest reporting. One wonders, is this history in the making or is it already history? The playing cards portray the things that nightmares are made of, except these boogeymen are real! Your Snarky Snippets are sublime! Thank-you!

    • Thank you!!! I think Ms. Huntsman likely does see Trump as a dictator, else why would that have even slipped out? Whether it was accidental or intentional … who knows? I’m still considering having a deck of those cards sent to Trump! I’m feeling evil these days! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Dear Jill,

    If Abby Huntsman is truly her Father’s daughter, her slip of the tongue was reflective of what she was thinking but shouldn’t have said. Her Dad as a republican is about the opposite of President Trump as is possible. He is well read, well educated, well-mannered, multi-lingual, etc.

    I think the card set makes a great gift. I think I’ll buy it for my son for Fathers Day.

    Hugs, Gronda

    • My best guess would be that she does consider Trump to be acting like a dictator … was it a slip of the tongue, or perhaps intentional? I don’t recall much about her father, only that he was in the early running for the GOP nomination in 2012. Great idea to buy your son the cards … he isn’t a Trump supporter, is he? I’m considering sending Trump a deck of the cards, too ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hugs!!!

  4. Now that the D word is out there, as in “Dictator Tyrant,” it shouldn’t be long for the Distasteful Terror to adopt it for his own. He probably ordered the faux pas to be made. That will get his trump-pets to start to accept the word, even though they don’t believe it yet. Most of them won’t even know what it means, but it sounds good, doesn’t it? Almost stately, in fact: Tonight we present to you, your new Dictator of the USA, The Democratic Traitor himself, Donald Jackass Trump!
    Oh, I can hardly wait, I am almost peeing in his popcorn. (Not to be mistaken for Keith’s popcorn, which Jill tells me is damned good!)

    • Y’know … you’re probably right that half of them don’t know the meaning of the word, and the other half probably wouldn’t even mind if he declared himself Dictator Jackass Trumpeter. Stop peeing in the popcorn!!! Somebody will mistake it for melted butter! (And it’s Roger who makes the popcorn, not Keith) ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Great minds think alike, for that was my first reaction also! Though Hannity does make a pretty good joker. I really want to buy a gross or so of those cards and send them to all my friends! However, I won’t, for I have better things to do with my money. ๐Ÿ˜‰
