Snarkier Than Usual Snippets — Part II

As promised, I have more snippets deserving of my sardonic wit today …


Lock her (Ivanka) up!!!

ivankaRemember the rallying cries of Trump supporters when they chanted “Lock her up!!!”, with only minimal prompting from Trump?  The ‘her’ was Hillary Clinton, Trump’s opponent in the 2016 presidential race, and the reason for the chant was that Trump called her use of a private email server for government business when she was Secretary of State, criminal.  Well, he who laughs last, laughs best, and guess what, folks?  Ivanka Trump has just been found to have done that very thing that Hillary, cleared by the FBI, was accused of.

According to The Washington Post

Ivanka Trump sent hundreds of emails last year to White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistants using a personal account, many of them in violation of federal records rules, according to people familiar with a White House examination of her correspondence.

White House ethics officials learned of Trump’s repeated use of personal email when reviewing emails gathered last fall by five Cabinet agencies to respond to a public records lawsuit. That review revealed that throughout much of 2017, she often discussed or relayed official White House business using a private email account with a domain that she shares with her husband, Jared Kushner.

The discovery alarmed some advisers to President Trump, who feared that his daughter’s practices bore similarities to the personal email use of Hillary Clinton, an issue he made a focus of his 2016 campaign. He attacked his Democratic challenger as untrustworthy and dubbed her “Crooked Hillary” for using a personal email account as secretary of state.

Burn, Baby, Burn … Maybe this will finally get her out of the White House and we won’t have to look at her fat posterior and grotesque fingernails on our screens every day!


Speaking of being respectful …

Adam Schiff is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, a democrat who has served in Congress since 2001.  Remember Trump’s propensity for making up derogatory nicknames for people he doesn’t like, which means anybody who doesn’t bow down to him and lick his dirty boots?  Remember “Lyin’ Ted (Cruz)” and “Crooked Hillary (Clinton)”, “Little Marco (Rubio)”, “Pocahontas (Senator Warren)” and all the others?  Well, Trump doesn’t like Representative Schiff, so he not-so-subtly changed Mr. Schiff’s last name in one of his nefarious tweets …Trump-tweet-SchiffNo, my friends, that was no typo … that was fully intentional and so far beneath what I would expect from any leader of a nation that my jaw actually dropped.  This ‘man’ is a jackass extraordinaire.  For his part, Mr. Schiff responded with humour, saying …

“Wow, Mr. President, that’s a good one. Was that like your answers to Mr. Mueller’s questions, or did you write this one yourself?”

I think that We The People of this nation have a right to expect better from the ‘man’ whose salary we pay and to whom we have entrusted our lives, our country, our futures.  Someway, somehow, this ‘man’ needs to be removed from the Oval Office, for he is not … I repeat, he is not … even a man, let alone a president.  Apologies on behalf of the sane people in this nation to Representative Schiff.


Trump in California …

Donald Trump should be shackled with leg irons to his chair in the Oval Office, for every time he is allowed out, he makes a fool not only of himself, but also of this nation.  After his royal screw-up in France last week, he decided to go to California over the weekend to see how many photo ops he could get in the burned-out town of Paradise.  Trump, you see, was jealous that the media was more interested in the California wild fires that were devastating the state, than in covering his every move.

Trump was not given the royal welcome he had expected, for two reasons.  First, he had made his now-famous tweet on November 10th, saying …

“There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”

Californians, watching their homes be burned to the ground, frantically trying to find missing loved ones, didn’t take kindly to Trump’s bombast.  And the second reason the red carpet wasn’t rolled out for him is that the good people of California were too busy trying to fight the fires, salvage what they could of their lives, etc.  Anyway, the red carpet was burned up in the Camp Fire.

Trump-California

It just can’t get any uglier

He got his photo op, although it wasn’t what he expected, and at least he didn’t throw rolls of paper towels to the victims – I suppose we should be thankful for that.  But he embarrassed us all once again when he couldn’t resist repeating his prior statement and embellishing on it by saying that Finland’s President Sauli Niinisto told him that his country doesn’t have the same problem with fires because it spends “a lot of time on raking and cleaning” the forest floors.  President Niinisto says he did not say any such thing, and now Finland is having great fun, at Trump’s (and ours) expense.Finn-vacuums-forest

more mocking trumpWell, you get the picture.  But that wasn’t the end of his ignorance.  The town of Paradise was completely destroyed, only Trump couldn’t be bothered to even get the town’s name right …

“I mean, as big as they look on the tube, you don’t see what’s going on until you come here. And what we saw at Pleasure, what a name, right now.”

And just minutes later …

“We just left Pleasure.”

This concludes my two-part miniseries of ‘snarkier than usual snippets’, and presumably explains why I have slipped back into the rabbit hole.  Never in my life have I seen so much chaos, ignorance, corruption and cruelty in this nation.  Thanks to all who voted for the abomination in the Oval Office for ruining our lives, our nation.

  1. We … you and I and millions of others (the “popular” voters) … are embarrassed, disgusted, angry, and bald from pulling our hair out at this ignoramus in the White House. But he’s worshipped from afar by his deplorables … and applauded each time he opens his mouth.

    Disgusting, yes. But true.

    MAGA!!!! By getting rid of the current POTUS!

    • You know I agree with you 100%, but the question is, how do we convince the others? The growing consensus is that we can’t. Period. And THAT is what is so discouraging. Oh, by the way … I have wondered why my hair is getting thinner by the week … now I know! Thanks!

      Seriously, though, the odds are that he will at least finish out this term. The goal must become to make sure he doesn’t see another, doesn’t win in 2020. To do that, we really need the Democratic Party to come together, to be strong and focused again. They rather fell apart after Hillary, and haven’t re-gained their cohesion.

  2. Dear Jill,
    You already know that I love this snarky side of you. President Trump will rue the day when he renamed Rep Schiff. I hope he is the one who subpoenas the presidents IRS tax returns.

    Can you believe that the republican Rep. Trey Gowdy is making plans to investigate Ivanka’s mishandling of White House business on her personal account?

    As for the tragedy of the California fires, the president was obviously unaware that over 60% of the California forests are owned by the federal government and that two utility corporations may very well the culprits that started these fires.

    As per the November 17, 2018 Guardian report, As major wildfires continue to rage across California, state regulators are examining – yet again – whether 2 utility companies may be to blame for them starting.”

    “Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) and Southern California Edison (SCE) have been identified by regulators as potentially responsible for the deadly Camp fire in northern California and the Woolsey fire in southern California, which began last Thursday(11/15/18).”

    “Both companies have been found to be responsible for fire disasters in recent years.

    Hugs, Gronda

    • Thanks Gronda! Y’know … these days I wonder if I have any side other than the snarky side! It just seems to come so naturally! Yes, that nickname for Adam Schiff was juvenile, even for the juvenile delinquent in the Oval Office. The nerve! Can you imagine if President Obama had ever done something like that???

      I hadn’t heard that Gowdy was pushing for an investigation of Ivanka, but good for him! Sometimes I can’t stand him, but every now and then he does something right. Rather like Jeff Flake.

      I’m sure Trump was told who owned the forests that burned, and also about the suspected cause of the fires, but he only picks and chooses what information to believe, rather the same as with climate change. Sigh. A high school kid would make a better president!

      Hugs!!!

  3. I agree that POTUS needs to be kept in a secure enclosure and only left speak from a podium with a teleprompter under his nose. The people of Finland have a great sense of humor, thank goodness. I wonder if Trump’s daughter will now be distanced by him. 😦 — Suzanne

    • Hard to say what will become of the whole mess with Ivanka. There is more corruption with her and Jared, both of whom are personally profiting from their White House roles, but you know how it goes. Thus far, Trump is crying “fake news!”, but even some members of his own party want it investigated. Hillary must be laughing now … I would be, in her shoes!

  4. Where did I hear “Rake America Great Again!” Oh yeah, a few years ago our town council was bitching about how dirty our town was becoming. But they didn’t want to spend any money to clean it. So they asked the townspeople what they would be willing to do to clean up the town. The most popular solution was to elect a new town council. Another solution was that the good citizens of High Level should grab their brooms and brushes and “Sweep High Level Clean Again!” Trump must have been eavesdropping!
    He calls himself a leader! He is less than an imbecile. Not even cockroaches would want to be friends with him. I think the Finns should sue him for national defamation!

    • “Sweep High Level Clean Again” … catchy! Yep, Trump must have seen that somewhere and perjured it. But nah, the Finns won’t sue, for they are having too much fun with this one! We are the laughingstock of the world, but the jerk in the Oval Office is too damn stupid to see it. Sigh.
