Caught!!!

Please bear with me today … I’m having one of those rare snarky moments …

It’s an age-old tactic:  the best defense is a good offense.  And folks, nobody … nobody … knows how to be more offensive than Donald Trump!  His latest tactic is funny, if you think about it.  Consider the little boy who stole a cookie from the cookie jar, and when his mother confronts him, with crumbs still on his little face, he says, “Me???  I didn’t take no cookie, mama.”  And for good measure, he bats his big brown eyes in feigned innocence. hand in cookie jar But mama has evidence, so she persists, and then the little boy changes tactics.  “Well, if I did take the cookie, it wasn’t a bad thing, ‘cause I was hungry.”  See what he did there?  He denied, but then once he realized he was caught dead-to-rights, he swerved to saying that even if he did, it wasn’t a crime.  Hmmmm … sound familiar?

First, Trump has been swearing loudly that he didn’t obstruct justice and that there was no collusion between his campaign (more likely himself) and the Russians (his buddy Vlad).  Loudly and obnoxiously.  For a loooonnnggg time.  Then, all of a sudden, there is his mouthpiece Rudy G on television saying that even if there was collusion, it’s not a crime.

Say what???  I thought you said there was no collusion???

who meThen, there’s that infamous Trump Tower meeting between Don Trump, Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, and at least five other people, including Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya that took place on June 9th 2016.  First, Trump denied all knowledge and claimed that the meeting, of which he ‘knew nothing’, was about adoptions of Russian children by Americans.  Then Junior admitted that the intent of the meeting was to gather damaging information to use against Hillary Clinton in the presidential campaign.  Dirty pool?  Oh yeah … big time.  Then it came out that Trump (Senior) actually drafted Junior’s initial false statement!  Trump, who cannot string 10 words together into a coherent sentence???  And the meeting took place one floor above Trump’s own office and he knew nothing?

But now … wait for it … it gets even better!  He just cannot let sleeping dogs lie or keep his mouth shut, so this morning he tweeted …

“Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!” – 8:35 AM – Aug 5, 2018

Wait!!!  What happened to the adoption thing?  Does anybody believe a single word that comes from his mouth???  If you do, once again allow me to show you the bridge I have for sale.  I would bet every last dollar I have that Trump was well aware of the meeting beforehand and perhaps even had a hand in setting it up.

And why … can anybody explain why he has to do these weird contortions with his face?  I don’t typically put pictures of him on this blog, for I am offended by just the sight of him. And I do not usually resort to mocking people for their looks, either, but this morning I am like the lion with a thorn in her paw, and in the mood to let ‘er fly, so look …

President Trump Holds Make America Great Again Rally In Pennsylvania

Personally, I think he looks constipated most of the time.

And on that note, I shall leave off and try to make myself useful for the remains of the day.  Have a great Sunday evening, folks!

  1. Dear Jill,

    It gets better. It seems there was a pre-planning get together on June 7 where the president was president. That evening at a rally, President Trump is announcing that on Monday, June 9, 2016, he plans to be revealing some news against Hillary Clinton. How about that for coincidences.

    Forget collusion. Try conspiracy to commit fraud to steal my right to expect a fair and above board election in 2016. I was robbed and I’m not happy. I’m a nasty, nasty woman.

    Hugs, Gronda

    • Ahhhh … the plot thickens, eh? You are not a nasty woman, you are a beautiful woman with a heart of gold, but I hope I never get on your bad side, for I know how that Italian temper can be!!! 😀 Like you, I know I was robbed of the ability to have a wise and sensible president, and I am angry also. I just wish his followers would take off their blinders, because now it is they who are making me mad almost as much as Trump.
      Hugs!!!

    • I agree. I said long ago that I didn’t look for Mueller to be finished before the end of this year, if then, for he MUST be certain to cross all the ‘t’s and dot all the ‘i’s and leave nothing to chance. But lately I become more afraid that somehow Trump will find a way to stop the investigation, so I grow more impatient for tangible results … something to convince Congress and the Supreme Court that he is the crook we know him to be. Sigh. Waiting is hard. Hugs!!!

    • I think that there has to be something wrong with the way the nerves and muscles in his face are strung together, for most people could not make all those faces. And have you ever … EVER seen a genuine smile on his face? You know the kind I mean, that the corners of the mouth turn up and there is a twinkle in the eyes. No, all he is capable of is either a smirk or that smug smile that makes me want to bash his face with my rolling pin!

  2. I don’t like his weird facial expressions either…I think they are yet more evidence of his complete lack of impulse control. Most people can keep themselves from making faces like that at everything.

  3. You’re just so insensitive. Can you not make allowances for the age of the Prez? Things are going to get forgotten at this age or even mis-remembered, it’s hardly a surprise that he can’t remember sitting at the back of the room for this meeting…Oops.The false statement? Well, he thought it was a note for school for Donny Jnr. The stories change because he can’t remember the lie he told last time and if someone wrote them down for him he can’t read.
    If Donny’s followers show they are not bothered at all by any lie he tells and think that it doesn’t make them look like fools, just make sure in November that they understand the lies matter to the rest of the World.

    • Ah yes, I suppose it is insensitive of me. Being a spring chicken myself, I forget to make allowances for you older folks 😄 I do hope to make some serious changes in November, but as you know, I have reservations. No, not at the Ritz!

  4. Abraham Lincoln said : “No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.” In Trump’s case memory is not the major problem. He is a prevaricator that has no respect for or acquaintance with the truth. It matters little whatever the topic, he simply lacks the honesty gene. Given the ratio of his lies vs. the truth, it is fairly safe to assume that he is lying. That the majority of his lies are easily disproved has not deterred his base of followers. One must wonder if that makes Trump a successful liar? Thank-you! P.S. PLEASE, no more Trump photos…they are vomit inducing!

    • He lies so much that nobody expects anything different, and his minions don’t care. Tonight, the word ‘accountability’ keeps coming, unbidden, into my head. It resides in my head, for it is no longer welcome in Washington. Trump lies. No consequences. Trump incites violence. No consequences. Trump sexually abuses women and girls. No consequences. Trump cheats and rigs an election in his own favour. No consequences. WHY??? Why have the same people who would have lynched Barack Obama for doing any of the above, decided that whatever Trump does is magic??? I once read it was his ‘charisma’. CHARISMA??? Who the heck are they kidding??? The man makes me sick to look at him or listen to him! And yes, the pics are indeed puke-inducing and that’s why I almost never put his picture on my blog! 😀

  5. I think tRump knows lil Donny Jr is going to be indicted soon so he’s trying to get out ahead of it. His lies and continuing story changes are offensive to anyone with an once of intelligence, which, sadly, his followers have little to none.

    • I definitely think he figures Junior and likely Jared, too, are going down. I think he’s scared of what Cohen has on him, and what ties might turn up in Manafort’s trial. The frightening thing, though, is that these fears are manifesting in a way that causes his horrific behaviour and rhetoric to escalate. We are at a point now that I really believe violence is going to erupt sooner than later and that Trump will applaud it, for it will take the focus off of him and his.
