Still More Snarky Snippets …

Having awakened this morning with a growing sense of angst, I decided it must be time for some snarky snippets …


It’s a late April Fool’s joke, right?

I am amused by an OpEd headline in The Washington Post yesterday …

Trump’s Plan For Peace Will Be Bold.  Here’s How It Can Succeed.

Say WHAT???  Peace?  Trump?  Those two words do not even belong in the same sentence!  The writer, Michael Singh, implies that Trump even has a ‘plan’ for peace between Israel and Palestine.  First off, he doesn’t, for planning is something that is beyond Trump’s comprehension.  He operates on ‘mood of the moment’, not well thought out plans.  Secondly, he has already proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he doesn’t understand the Middle East at all.

But the part that really made me laugh was the simple word:  peace.  Trump has divided his own nation so severely that I don’t foresee a reconciliation at any point in the future and am more inclined to think this nation will ultimately become two … or more.  Antagonism, bullying and battle, not peace, is Trump’s forte.  Mr. Singh apparently drank a bit too much of that Kool Aid.


Caught in the act …

tucker-carlsonTucker Carlson, who I consider one of the most bombastic fools of the 21st century, had his 15 minutes in the spotlight last week.  Turns out he’s always been an idiot, as evidenced by some decade-old radio recordings unearthed by Media Matters for America.  A few samples …

  • He claimed Iraqis don’t “behave like human beings” and said he had “zero sympathy” for Iraqis or their culture during a May 2006 discussion of the Iraq War on the popular radio show. “A culture where people just don’t use toilet paper or forks,” Carlson said—adding that Iraqis should “just shut the f*** up and obey” the U.S. because “they can’t govern themselves.”
  • He said immigrants should have “something to offer”—like being “hot” or “really smart.” “But people to come over and pick lettuce, I mean, I’m not saying that’s an undignified… but on the other hand, is that—are those people who are going to build, you know, a stronger country 20 years from now?”
  • “My — here’s my point: If a guy wants to be polygamist, that’s kind of his business.”
  • “A teacher who molested a 13-year-old took pressure off the victim’s female classmates because they wouldn’t have to sleep with him.”
  • “If you’re talking to a feminist, and she’s given you, ‘Well, men really need to be more sensitive,’ no, actually, men don’t need to be more sensitive. You just need to be quiet and kind of do what you’re told.”

If that last one didn’t make your blood boil …

Now, lest you think that ol’ Tucker (who names their kid ‘Tucker’, anyway?) was ashamed and apologetic … think again!

“Rather than express the usual ritual contrition, how about this: I’m on television every weeknight live for an hour. If you want to know what I think, you can watch. Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why.”

What a guy, eh?


Oranges???

I have long said that Trump is functionally illiterate.  The ‘man’ cannot seem to so much as string a simple sentence together that makes any sense.  He talks rather like the mobsters in the old mob movies, if you ask me.  This week, he has gone out of his way to prove my point.

The ‘oranges’ of the investigation?  Obviously, he was trying to say ‘origins’, but failed miserably.  Origins isn’t really that difficult to say, now is it?  Perhaps he hadn’t had his lunch yet and food was on his brain.  Or perhaps … just a thought … he really doesn’t know any better!dumb trumpWhile I’m in the Trump-mocking mode, what about his claim … repeated claim … that his father was born in Germany? While declaring his love for Germany, Trump said he’s proud that his father was born in the country. “Born in a very wonderful place in Germany, so I have a great feeling for Germany,” Trump said. Fred Trump was born in the Bronx.

A lie by any other name is still a lie.  He’s told so many of them that he genuinely seems not to know where truth stops and lies begin.


That’s it – blame the democrats …

Good ol’ Sarah Huckabee Sanders, one of Trump’s most loyal boot-lickers.  I used to think Sarah was at least capable of coherent thought, but she has worked hard to disabuse me of that notion.  Perhaps it is something in the air surrounding Trump that causes brain damage.Sarah.jpgYesterday, at an impromptu gathering on the White House lawn, Sarah was asked by a reporter by what statute, by what authority Trump felt it was within his power to shut down the Mexico-U.S. border as he has threatened.  Her response?

“Democrats are leaving us absolutely no choice at this point.”

Positively brilliant answer, Sarah … now go on back inside and colour some more pretty pictures.


Okay, I feel better now that I got all that off my chest!  Carry on, friends, and have a great rest-of-the-day!

  1. I am of the belief that no one in the GOP or in his base actually admires or likes Trump…he is tolerated for what they can obtain from him that supports their own agendas. The man has no admirable qualities whatsoever and to say that he is even functionally illiterate is flattery. At this point I can barely read his words, much less hear his voice. Not that it makes one single bit of difference, but in my entire memory, I can think of no person that I have liked less…and that includes the missing in action husband! As for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whatever functioning brain that she had before this tenure with Trump has long since evaporated leaving a dark hole of mysterious muck. Tucker Carlson, much like Trump, is a loathsome and vile specimen of the human race. Thank-you!

    • I do wish you wouldn’t hold back your feelings so … just let it all out! 😀 I happen to agree with you on all counts! Until recently, I don’t think I ever hated anybody in the way that I hate him. And never once in my life before have I actually wished death upon another human being, but almost daily I wish it upon him. And that may be the thing that I hate most about him … that he has turned me into a person that I never wanted to be. 😥

  2. Trump for peace?? No one in their right mind would believe such a lie. All we need to do is look at his administration, he filled it with warmongering neocons itching to start regime changes all over the world.
    Why just this week, Maduro, the legitimate President of Venezuela requested military assistance from Russia and China to combat US aggression in his own country. Russia and China responded by sending troops as a symbol of solidarity and to keep the peace.
    To think that Trump’s goal is to broker peace in the ME is laughable considering his recent actions like recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights and previously relocating the US embassy to Jerusalem as capital of Israel. I’m sure the Muslim world see things differently. *Sigh*

  3. Shouldn’t you organise a special week for helping all these poor mentally challenged people? Perhaps find them appropriate classes for a week to help them get to grips with facts.Perhaps in Trump’s case you could supply a copy of his father’s birth certificate and explain what it means.Poor Sarah needs to see that her Idol can’t be forced to do things by a minority group when he has the power, in fact the majority group have a problem making him do things as he pleases himself anyway.

    • I like your suggestion, and I really think that, since there are so many of them (far more than I have highlighted here, as you will see in this morning’s post) we should hold that special class on a deserted island out somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. We will take them there by boat, and … oops, perhaps we will forget to come back for them when the week’s classes are ended. Oh well. I’m sure they will be very happy there, telling each other lies!

      Emily had a great idea … she said that perhaps Trump’s father, and even Trump himself were born in Germany, which would automatically disqualify him for the office he currently holds! Poetic justice, especially after he started the “birther” rumour about Obama many years before.

      As for Sarah … I think somebody needs to smack her upside the head.

    • Dear Jill, David and friends,

      Please understand that President Trump’s base of end-times Rapture believing Evangelicals who comprise about 35% of his base truly believe that God has sent him to be our president. What they would need is a a program that helps folks who have been brainwashed. This helps to explain their cult like adherence to whatever President Trump says or does.

      This is just one more reason that President Trump needs to be trounced at the ballot box in 2020, if not sooner.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • Yes, they would follow him off a cliff, which is why I used to refer to them as ‘lemmings’, until rawgod pointed out that it was an insult to actual lemmings. I think, given what I’m seeing of his (Trump’s) behaviour these last few weeks, it would be prudent to get him out of office before 2021 if possible. However, that has its dangers, as it could put in motion a train of violence by his supporters that we are not prepared for. Sigh. It’s a no-win situation.

        Hugs!

    • I had the same thought!!! 😀 Wouldn’t it be wonderful to find he wasn’t even born here and thus … is ineligible to be in the Oval Office? Especially after his ‘birther’ conspiracy theory about President Obama!

  4. Jill, snark away. Here is a synopsis of my reactions:
    – When I think of the man in the White House, the word “planning” does not come to mind.
    – Trump is the man who harped on where the President was born, yet he has difficulty remembering where is father was born. And, this is not the first time.
    – Good evening, I am Tucker Carlson, welcome to my show. Click.
    – The Sarah Huckabee Sanders response is a child’s response. Q – Why did Donnie do it? A – Nancy and Chuckie made him. Really?

    I heard a great line about building the wall. Instead of using 21st century means to prevent Russia and China from hacking the US, the US President is using a 5th century structure to accomplish very little. Keith

    • Thanks Keith … I seem to always have something snarky to say these days, don’t I? And to think, I was once a nice person. Oh wait a minute … no, I’ve always had a bit of a snarky wit about me. Sigh. I agree with every one of your reactions, only you are kinder than I am toward these people. Has there ever been a more bungling bunch of buffoons in our government? I swear I have ground my teeth down to the nubs!
