Teflon Don #MAGA

Like shooting fish in a barrel. They speak, and it’s so easy to refute them. They really just don’t get it.

The Donald posted this on his Instagram account after he officially cinched the GOP nomination yesterday. ♥

    Wow it has not yet been a year since The Donald upset the apple cart. I was on board from day one although I did not think he could go the distance. Had the rethugs gone all in behind Walker its slightly possible that he might have been a novelty. I kind of think no as he declared his intention 25 years ago on Oprah. He surveys the landscape and he does not back down. He openly in The Art of the Deal affirms his friendship with Roy Cohn. He does not apologize or qualify. The LGBQT is rather silent on Sir Trump. Why is that? Roy Cohn was one of the darkest villians in gay history. Donald acknowledges it calls him friend by page 20. He has neutered almost all possible attacks by outing himself. Nothing in politics will ever be as perfect as “Well Rosie”. Pundits may have found him crass but America was like holey shit did he really say that. He does not use the pregnant pause. He blathers and he is funny with just the right amount of self deprecation. I hear pundits all the time saying black young men do not like him. Well those pollsters do not take my bus as DJT is a ##igga. I have known these guys for ten years. Lots of posturing happens at 7 am on the bus. I have lectured to them about 529 accounts and have set them up. Really sad that they were unaware. My very white brother did not know the benifits. He knew there was a savings plan but he did not see the value. Jerome started his plan for his daughter 7 years ago. He puts in 75 a week plus holiday birthday stuff. He did not know he paid tuition at state school at the price when he started. His 28,000 is more like 60. She is going into 11th. I told him he has half of her tuition going to a state school. He cried. It’s his fucking daughter He wants the best but he had never heard of 529. 529 accounts are exempt from financial aid consideration. My punk has her eyes on Purdue not a state school but I play the game. Title IX makes athletic scholarships for girls readily available. Honestly the bargain is not that much. I spend around 800/month on her shit. We are in year three of tae kwan do. I am so thankful. School has become more “progressive” every year. She got a C on a social studies paper. Munchkin does not abide by C’s. Question asked how do you feel Juanita felt shame at Ellis Island because her family was dark. I am of hard ass tough women extraction. I was not playing that game. I marched to school ready to munch on esophogus. I was in full Rick mode. The question asked “how do you feel” you will not guilt my baby. You will not mark her wrong for how she feels. No. Never. Bet your ass I went to school board. Meeting and read the question. Fury is what I felt the question was how do you feel. You cannot mark a question wrong about a feeling. Margeret Thatcher cupid stunt told me to my face we are guiding children to be proper. Bitch is unemployed. I made more than a little noise. Thing is all the social studies stuff has a severe leftist bent. I only saw it because of a C. Homework is all math and spelling. Crud doesnot even have books for other classes. Well this f a g spent a decade with a brat I ain’t playing. School would not give me texts. I bought them on line. You betcha I read out load at school board meeting. White men are very bad. Straight white men are even worse. This hag went after me saying as a gay man I should understand her plight. How does an institutionalized white straight male progam enhance your pathetic bitter life. I love my dad. He has COPD but rides his scooter to coach softball. I tell my annoying little brat I believe in her. She is so inclined towards my dad. Every morning she wakes up and then sleeps next to him. Years ago I boinked a man that was on Welcome Back Kotter. I wanted him to make that noise he made as Arnold Horshack. Nope he told me his dad died from emphysema and that was the sound he made in his last days. Fuck you bang a 1970’s tv star and you think gee I’ll get a good story. Nope I got three hours on a roof top discussing daddy death. Flash forward my kid crawls into bed every morning with her pap. He wears a mask to breath. I have to believe there is a connection.

        I don’t think that will happen with Obama. He keeps dropping hints how he’s going to stay involved in policy and “community organizing”. Will be living just 2 miles from the WH too. I just hope President Trump’s IRS is a lot smarter than Obama’s.😀

  9. Myiq2xu™ says:

    Hillary is basically running as Obama’s third term – i.e “more of same”. So why does she seem so pissed off every time she gives a speech?

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’ve noticed she’s sounding more like Alan (Republicans want you to die) Grayson only shriller. Not very inspiring and she’s pandering poorly. She needs to hire Obama’s 2008 campaign team😉

    • blowme0bama says:

      Because she’s pissed off having to go through this rigamaroe to get to the WH.

      • Lulu says:

        When she chose to run as Broncobama the Second of His Name it looked like a sure thing with the media controlling the narrative, she had been keeping the secrets, Bill had been on leash, she had been stockpiling money and favors via Clintonglobal Inc, etc. In retrospect it is one of her more idiotic ideas but now she is stuck with it. She shoulda walked away from all things Broncobama in 2008 and sat it out in the Senate. She fucked up. She never figured on a narrative buster like Trump snagging her too.

    • Anthony says:

      I think Hillary is running as “The Dems” (collective). When they screwed her in ’08 and installed Obama, they went on to purge the Blue Dogs out of Congress and replace them with Progressives.

      Along with that came the New Democrat Socialist (Progressive) agenda, which is now their official platform. Hillary has no choice but to run on that platform, ergo the promise to “preserve and expand upon” Obama’s ‘accomplishments’. She has no choice but to follow party orders because I’m sure they know where all her and Bill’s bodies are buried.

      The GOP started to do the same this year to their own party (swap “Progressive” with “Globalist”) but Trump (and supporters) put a stick in the spokes of that wheel.

      I’m also more sure now than I ever was that the Democrats will trot out a Biden/Warren ticket at the 11th hour. Been saying that since last year, and every time I turn around, Warren is shooting her mouth off and MSNBC interns are whispering “Biden” more loudly than before.

    • Somebody says:

      I’ll save everyone the trouble……lots of double speak and claims of attorney client privilege.

      • Lulu says:

        I think Mills looses it a few times or should would not care about it. The usual double or legal speak she would be fine with but she either sneered a lot and/or lost it throwing a fit or something. She looks like a sneering special snowflake to me.

        • leslie says:

          I recall reading something about Mills walking out of those meetings/hearings/inquiries in a snit. And more than once. That would be great material to use against HRC.

          • Lulu says:

            There you go. She must have acted the ass and now doesn’t want it made public. Stompy puss face don’t work with the FBI. She probably wouldn’t listen to her lawyer either since she is a “great” lawyer herself. Idiot.

  12. Myiq2xu™ says:

    Hillary damaged herself seriously because she didn’t want journalists filing FOIA requests to go sifting through her emails to find stupid little things and turns of phrases that could be made into gigantic, distracting nothings.

    They sound like whiny little children. They’re going to camp on these emails and the unreleased transcripts of her speeches to Goldman Sachs and they readily acknowledge that all they and their journalist droogs are going to do is make a mountain of something as trivial as “thank you all for allowing me to talk to you today”.

    It reminds me of the papparazzi that regarded it as their right to follow Princess Diana around. Everything she did was documented to death. Literally. Oh sure, you could blame the chauffeur for driving while intoxicated but he wouldn’t have been speeding through a Paris Tunnel in the first place if there weren’t a posse of photographers hot on Diana’s tail. If reports from other bystanders are correct, they took pictures of her while she was dying in the backseat of the car.

    It would be incorrect to assume that because Hillary Clinton is a former first lady, twice elected Senator and former Secretary of State that she has too much experience and gravitas to be permanently damaged by this. Somehow, the pundits think, she will pull herself out of this. She’ll take a hit in the polls, only weeks away from the biggest delegate prize in the primaries, and it will be a nail biter all the way to the convention, but she will still, somehow, emerge triumphant.

    I’m not so sure. I’ve seen up close and personal how women in professional life are always more harshly criticized for stuff that their male counterparts can get away with. Men are allowed to be human. Women have to be Dianas, either chaste or chased. They get away with nothing. And while it is encouraging that some men are starting to appreciate just how presidential she is compared to Mr. Can’t Pick a Right Shade of Self Tanner, they fail to acknowledge that in order for women to BE Presidents, they have to somehow transcend being mortal human beings.

    At the moment, Donald Trump can do and say anything and get away with it. His persistent attacks on Hillary this week for everything she has ever done or said in her entire life illustrates why she might be motivated to put her email on a separate server that wouldn’t be subjected to FOIA requests by “journalists” on a fishing expedition for “gotcha” emails, and wouldn’t be the target of hacking because no one outside of her address list would know that it existed.

    One tantalizing tidbit that came up last night when CNN was discussing it was why didn’t the President know she was using an unauthorized email server? Presumably, he knew she wasn’t contacting him from Hillary.Clinton@State.gov. Why didn’t HE insist she use a government email server?

    In any case, there were no laws broken, she didn’t send email that she knew ahead of time was classified and the server was never hacked, unlike the other state department servers. This is simply a case of a woman who knows that everything she thinks, writes and says is has the potential to become twisted and misused for political purposes or just for fun, as Emily Bazelon and John Dickerson admit.

    The timing is right, now that she is being attacked relentlessly by Trump who seemingly has spent a lot of money for opposition research portraying her in the worst possible light to his voters, for her to give her “ask forgiveness rather than permission speech”. And then, if the Democrats really want to win in November, it’s crucial that they close ranks behind her and defend her vigorously to give her the mantle of superhuman invincibility she needs to get elected.

    But if history is any guide, they’ll be bystanders at the car wreck while the butterflies take selfies next to the corpse.

    • Lulu says:

      It was about Jarrett the ferret digging through her emails. And Bigfoot the Mooch. Everyone forgets about the Genius Sista’s. If Hillary was such a princess, learned her tech shit, wasn’t such a cheap ass and paid for a top rate system, she might have pulled it off.

    • Venus says:

      That simple twit doesn’t seem to understand the purpose of FOIA.
      Public employees doing public work on public tax dollars don’t get to have secrets FROM THE PUBLIC, dumbass. The way to make site nothing is “twisted” is to DO YOUR FUCKING JOB PROPERLY.

    during the late 60s and early 70s i worked for the Philadelphia Inquirer Newspaper. At that time there were hundreds of independent newspapers across the country. They were slowly being bought out of merging with others. We were talking back then about how some day there would be fewer independents and many papers would be owned by a few corporations. this would restrict the flow of information. It has happened.

    • DeniseVB says:

      It’s why we call them The Corporate Media😉 When I first started reading conservative websites and blogs a whole new information world opened up to me. It was also surprising many banned AP links for news stories. It made me notice why as I read AP sourced news and noticed how one sided they were.

    • mothy67 says:

      I used to love Philly. I went to college there and had amazing opportunities simply by virtue of being there. I knew Camille Paglia because we shopped togerther. I go back and it seems broken. South Street was once alternative. Now its a strip mall by day at night its all hoods. I saw the Dead Kennedys, Suiicidal Tendecies. Punk was gasping for air late 80’s and Philly was life support. Lots of big names survived. Back then Philly was like Brooklyn. You got your shit together there and move on. I was always giving up my sofa to bands. To this day I hate patchouli. be dirty who cares. Try and mask it with that oil. Christ I had these lesbians crash. I went and bought a hand truck to walk my sofa six blocks away. 2500 dollar sofa and I would have given my teeth to get did of it Needless to say I do not like patchouli. Anyhow I was known as someone that let bands crash. It’s very cool. I am now 49 and all my friends that did not od work on tours. Three years ago Xolly was playing near by. I said fuck off I am not a bimbo yelling Dolly. I respect her but thats it. My punk rock friends that slept on my floor sent us to dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. She was soooooooo nice. Said I understand you read to your little girl. Seriously how fucked up my punk rock friends get me dinner with Dolly Parton and cared enough about me to let her know I care about kids reading. Back through the years I go wandering once again. Back to the seasons of my youth. Love Dolly. Written word I am Shakespeare. Dostoevsky, Dolly Parton, James Joyceand Led Zep. Come on Kashmir?+

      Have the Japanese leaders ever paid respect to Pearl Harbor? Just wondering, because they started it.

      • SHV says:

        Over the years of “poor Japanese”, we evil Americans nuked them, no mention is ever made of the millions of Chinese, Koreans, South East Asians killed, tortured, starved, etc. by the Japanese. Every day the war continued, thousands died. It would have been immoral for Truman not to have used the “Bomb”.

        • 1539days says:

          It’s possible more Japanese would have died in a ground war. The atom bomb was the only level of “shock and awe” to show Hirohito that some things are more powerful than he was.

        • taw46 says:

          I can’t even read Twitter comments today. All the American hating, how we murdered innocent Japanese. They need to read some history, perhaps starting with The Rape of Nanking, Comfort women, all of the Japanese atrocities throughout WWII. And the European and American citizens, including women and children, who were rounded up and placed in camps, tortured and starved.

            “He did not apologize”.
            Of course, they didn’t say what he did do essentially was an apology.

If any of those paid for protesters riot, the debate would be off!!! Period. Put a little juice into it…step up to the face of violent agitators for the sake of democratic dialogue…

        I have non alcoholic cirrhosis. Which is the biggest fuck you ever. I drank so much. I should be a pickle. I was on transplant list. Not my thing. I be near 50 no way in hell I M taking somethi g over a kid. Its been four years since they pronounced me dead. Yesterday I walked 11.3 miles home. Pretty sure I did not die. If I did the after life is boring. I am an idiot and so is my brat. I will not perish because my baby brother has already laid out a schedule for chump when I’m a dead person. He is so anal. I am a freak slob. My puke is adjusted to me. I tried to yell at her once Nd we both fell into tears laughing. She never gets in trouble but her world is humorous. I do not care about stuff. Never have. My baby brother and his wife make 7 figures. They are so dull. Nice people but so dull. I will live forever and a dayto protect my brat from boredom they rented a house in on whatever outer banks for next year. He shows me the pics I say Dan you do know I was a homeless person in London. He has a cleaning schedule. My dog was tied up and left for dead. I love my Bella. She cannot behave. Takes prozac wears a comfort jacket. she just cannot behave. Deer play with her Last winter it went down to minus 20. Bella had sleepover. Bella is so bad. Shelter said if she came back again she was going down. They begged us to not take her but my brat insisted. She is a nightmare but she actually brought her deer friends to my door
