Trump’s E-Score?

I struggled to focus tonight, being tired, tired of Trump, and in rather a black mood.  But then, thanks to our friend Ellen, I found something with which to amuse you, my friends!  Y’know, late night comedians like Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Myers, John Oliver and others are much the same as the political cartoonists we all enjoy — they can say so much with humour.  Good ol’ Stephen Colbert is always good for some laughs, and Friday night’s monologue is no exception.  So, grab a fresh cup of coffee and spend a few minutes having a few laughs at Trump’s expense!  Thank you, Ellen, for pointing me in this direction!

  1. Dear Jill,

    Any leader who would walk the plank with President Trump, is by definition, suspect.

    Whenever I’m down, I watch the animal videos, watch John Oliver, John Colbert, Noah Trevor, SNL skits that give President Trump, a proper dressing down. Then there’s my local Barnes & Noble, listening to music, spending time with family and friends.

    Life would be great, but watching President Trump acting out is giving me stomach pains.

    Hugs, Gronda

    • I am finding that even a trip to Barnes & Noble last Saturday didn’t help, not even music helps, and not even the cute animal videos … I can honestly say I have never felt as hopeless in my life as I do now. Sigh.
      Hugs!!!

      • Dear Jill,

        Please know that what you are experiencing, that despair, is exactly what authoritarian type leaders require, in order for there to be a successful takeover of existing political systems. But I have to admit that I’m fighting this battle, myself. It is all too overwhelming.

        Hugs, Gronda

        • Thanks Gronda … at least I know I’m not alone. While I may feel despair and depressed, I am not going to let the ball drop, but will keep pounding the keyboard well into the night to make sure nobody can forget the abominations of this administration. It’s a battle, but we’re fighters. I cannot promise that we will win the battle, for more and more I’m uncertain of the eventual outcome, but I can promise we won’t be going down without a fight.
          Hugs!

  2. I am honored and humbled to be of assistance in your time of need! Not bad for a non-blogger! It does, of course, go without saying that I have an abundance of time on my hands compared to you. Consider me your sanity saver, although that merit really belongs to Stephen Colbert. Thank-you!!

  3. Thanks for sharing. We cant see John Oliver or Stephen Colbert on tv but my husband watches them on YouTube and they always cheer us up. I have to admit that I am caught up a little in our Brexit drama so I nearly forgot about Trump. Only nearly though 😁 Have a great Sunday despite everything. 🙋‍♀️🐝🌻♥️

    • I never watch tv, so I don’t see them there either, but I do enjoy seeing them on YouTube occasionally. Yes, I fully understand that Brexit is all-consuming over there, just as Trump is over here. I try to keep up a bit with Brexit, but there is always so much of Trump “in our face” that it is hard to focus elsewhere. I’m sure Brexit is the same for you guys, and from what I’m reading, it is every bit as scary as Trump. ‘Twould seem that the whole bloomin’ world is on the brink of insanity some days! Hang in, my friend, and you have a great Sunday also … though yours is mostly over by now. Hugs! 🤗 🙋 🌺

      • Just watching LOTR and wishing we all had a Gandalf and a Galadriel in our midst 😁🙋‍♀️🐝. Not watching TV seems a very wise choice… and don’t worry the only thing thats sure about Brexit at the moment is quarreling politicians and people who are living in a colonial past going nasty…

        • My friend Herb is a BIG LOTR fan, but I have yet to watch a single one! I keep meaning to, but never seem to find the time. Yes, Brexit is getting quite ugly. As an outsider looking in, I have felt that Ms. May was dealt a losing hand, and has been doing the best she could do, given what she had to work with. Again, though, I am an outsider and admittedly do not understand everything. I have at least two readers who absolutely despise Ms. May and consider her on a par with Trump. Your take? 🙋

          • I agree with you on her being dealt a bad hand. I think though she should have gained all party consent on what Britain wants first, then trigger article 50 and start negotiating. So in a way the situation is of her own making. I do not like her either. There is a reason why she allowed Trump to hold her hand when she was over at your end and we believe she is even worse than Maggie Thatcher. I hope all this moves forward soon… have a lovely day no matter what life throws at you 😙🙋‍♀️🐝

            • There is a lot of sense in what you say. It would have been logical to gain a consensus before setting the countdown clock. I hope it is resolved soon, and without major upheaval to the citizens of the UK, for it is dividing your nation just as Trump is dividing ours. Not a good thing. Thanks, my friend … I try. I hope you have a lovely day and a great week ahead! 🙋 🤗

              • Thanks for your good wishes but I doubt that is going to happen. The political elite has catered too much to the right-wing electorate and emboldened them so much that if we stay in the EU or have a customs union they are going to riot and if food shortages happen after their preferred no-deal brexit they riot too. If we fall out without a deal business in the UK is done and dusted. We lost already major car makers and banks leaving for the safe havens in Europe. Those who want to remain feel so marginalised now that they might riot as well. Who knows? And many who wanted Brexit first dont want it now. I cannot see how this Gordic knot can be solved. Well, I wish for another referendum or general elections but thats not going to happen as far as I can see. I cannot believe how a totally sensible country suddenly can go bonkers just because the Tories wanted to keep their party together…. but on the bright side I had a lovely day outside doing some gardening after getting son from another mother plus girlfriend and throwing out all my plans 😙😁🙋‍♀️🐝🌻

                • I can say the same about our country … “I cannot believe how a totally sensible country suddenly can go bonkers …” It is true of both the UK and the U.S. and no, I don’t fully understand it, either, but much of it has its roots in the refugee crisis that was a result of the Arab Spring movement. Sigh. There is always a domino effect. I am so glad you had a good day and threw your plans out the window! Spontaneity is the spice of life! 🙋
