I just seem to be full of snark these days, don’t I? These two crossed my path and I found myself unable to resist them! 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 …
Abby Huntsman is a general assignment reporter for Fox News Channel. She currently co-hosts Fox & Friends Weekend. 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 Trump’s former communications director, Anthony Scaramucci on Fox & Friends, when she said this …
“Anthony, 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.”
Did you hear it, folks??? She plainly said “meeting between the two dictators.”
The word, once spoken, can never be unspoken, and once heard, can never be unheard. This word was heard ‘round the world, and when I read it on The Guardian, I literally let out a WHOOP!!! GOTCHA!!!
Scaramucci didn’t catch her ‘faux pas’ either, but somebody backstage must have, for later in the show, Huntsman apologized …
“I do want to point out that earlier, as you know sometimes on live TV sometimes you don’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.”
Yeah, right, sweet cheeks! And by the way … I have a beautiful bridge in Brooklyn for sale real cheap!
Trump, as of this writing, had not responded to Huntsman’s Freudian slip, but many others did …
“Abby Huntsman calls it a “meeting between two dictators.” Believe it. We are here!” – Amy Siskind
“#TwoDictators walk into a bar. The short one says; “I like your hair”, the tall one says “did you see the size of my crowd”.”
Know your deplorables …
Quite by accident I stumbled across this little gem on Amazon this morning.
Yes, 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! At only $9.99, this is a must have! I am considering ordering a case and giving a pack to all my friends!
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
“Extremely 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.”
Well, back to work for me … I hope you enjoyed these two little gems! Have a great day!
