In Epic Smackdown, Trump to Media: #FuckThisShit #GoTrump

Thirty minutes after Team Hillary declared their battle plans yesterday, calling in some of her favorite journolisters as mercenary troops, The Donald nailed their asses to the wall. Talk about rapid response.

bull fart

It was a glorious site to behold, and hear. Best part? He gave the media a nickname: sleazy media. Puuuuuuuuuurfect! Twitter was all, like, quick, to the hastag!

It was preemption and inoculation all in one, and a shot across the bow of Team Hillary’s frail frigate. Needless to say, her coordinated, painstakingly poll-tested message fell flat, and nobody gave a shit what she had to say once she finally made it on air.

The unforgiven took to Twitter, television, and talk radio for the rest of the day to soothe their butthurt. Spent another 10 hours talking about Trump and how much money he raised for veterans. #Pwned

Comments on that last one are priceless. Best. Election. Ever.

This is an open thread.

    I had planned to watch Milo at UCLA later today, a touch of insomnia hits, I figure check it out.
    I’ve never really listened to him at length, but after today, I will.
    Milo explains so clearly what is plaguing American culture/society. Of course that’s just my opinion.
    Its worth a listen.

    There are only three places in Merced where you ever have to pay for parking – UC Merced, Merced Community College,and at some events at the fairgrounds.

    • elliesmom says:

      Since we moved out to the boonies, I have this huge collection of dimes and quarters building up in the coin well in my car. I still throw parking meter change in there out of habit, but I haven’t seen a meter in months.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        I’ve heard that back east there are places where you have to pay just to drive on the roads!

        • leslie says:

          The Illinois legislature tried to impose a tax on driving PERIOD. Sen Cullerton introduced a plan to tax every driver in Illinois just for driving and it would be based on total distance driven annually. I suppose the revenue would go to supplementing the senators’ and representatives’ salaries instead of paying down state debt. The state legislators do NOTHING to remedy the tax and spend mentality and the huge debt in the state, but add more taxes to spend more monies on projects that enhance either their own or their pals’ pockets.

          • leslie says:

            Oh, and there was such an uproar when this new tax was introduced, that Cullerton – second in sleaze and power only to Michael Madigan – was pretty much forced to abandon the plan. At least for now.
            Good news from Illinois… The Black Caucus comprised of Chicago democrats has joined with state Republicans and Gov Rauner to oppose Madigans recent budget proposal.

          • Ann says:

            Most annoying toll ever was the exit to ORD where the “exact change” bucket was 85¢ with no prior warning! The first time we took that exit, I swear I was filtering through the lint at the bottom of my purse looking for nickles. We haven’t gone that way in at least 3 years now (not since my BIL died), but I hope they made it an EZ pass (i-pass) pay now too.

          • leslie says:

            YES!!! Not only was there no prior warning… There was no attendant!That was so distressing. I only went through there one time before I found another route.

        • foxyladi14 says:

          and cross bridges

        • Ann says:

          We’ve driven through about 40 states (I’ve been to 49 states, but not necessarily driving). In very few states do I recall NO tolls… either on the road or bridges, even in states with high registration costs. I personally prefer tolls as pay-for-use instead of subsidizing all (including tourists). Seems fairer to me.

          “Freeway” story….

          About 25 years ago my brother moved to Vegas. He went to their DMV to register his Pontiac Sunbird. Conversation went like this:
          When he went to pay, lady says to him, “That’ll be $386.52, please.”
          He looks at her and laughs. “No really, how much is it?”
          She looks back and him and says, “$386.52. We have FREEWAYS you know!”
          He looks right back at her and said, “They aren’t FREE. I am paying $386.52 a year!”

          To be fair to Nevada, they seem to have worked on getting that down. My FIL never paid that much on his cars. He passed away 8 years ago though, and my MIL does not drive. I have no idea how much it is these days to register a car in Nevada.

          If you aren’t paying with a tax, you are paying with a fee. Nothing is free in this country, in spite of what the Bernie supporters like to think…

          • leslie says:

            That annual tax on distance driven proposed by a$$hat Cullerton was IN ADDITION to the toll roads and other driving charges already in place! These people are highway robbers of the lowest order. There is no sacrifice they wouldn’t impose on the people of Illinois. But they won’t consider amending – or dropping some of the projects or proposal that cost the taxpayers huge $$ every year. They ought to be jailed.

          • 49erDweet says:

            (Sigh). That was a dumb response by the DMV gal. NV sorta copies the CA registration fee methodology where they collect a bunch of itty bitty nuisance fees for several agencies all at the same time, plus any taxes that may be due, plus a fee based on a percentage of the value of the car, and send those fees on to the other agencies. She had a chart available to explain that so saying something about freeways – which are usually mostly paid for by fuel taxes – was stoopid.

      • Jadzia says:

        I just walk everywhere. After four years of not understanding people, I am starting French school on Monday and for that, I’m dragging my mother-in-law’s 1970s-tastic bike out of the shed. Because fuck paying for parking. (Okay, I could walk to this school, but frankly I’m not going to have enough free time for that kind of indulgence because once again I’m the only steadily employed person in the house and time is money.)

    • leslie says:

      In Evanston IL you have to pay in every commercial area, except in the stores’ parking lots. That is everyday, all day, and in some places until 11:00 pm, except Sundays and legal holidays. And the city PD tickets cars with abandon. Then the city planners and council wonders why businesses are moving out and no one is moving into the empty storefronts except restaurants.

      Trump should promise that if he is elected he will stay in Washington and get things done. No traveling around the country giving speeches, fundraising and golfing on the public teat.

    • leslie says:

      “Elkhart is, in fact, a symbol of America’s recovery,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest. “The president does believe, while he is not particularly concerned in accepting credit for himself, he does believe it’s important for the American people to understand what sort of policies have made our recovery possible.”

      Really does anyone believe Obama doesn’t want to take credit for himself? Who is Josh Earnest trying to con? He really thinks people are stupid.
      If he wants credit for some improvement, will he also accept the responsibility for Carrier and Nabisco and other manufacturers leaving the country? Or how about Intel laying off 12,000+ in order to use the thousands of H1B visas they were given to hire foreign workers?

  10. votermom says:

    I’m sorry I missed both Trump’ s epic crackdown of the sleazymedia and Milo’ s event.

        I have no problem whatsoever with fat people liking their bodies, or being on the beach in whatever they want to wear. Only thing I have a problem with is the DEMAND that everyone must kiss up to them and be REQUIRED to find them physically attractive.

        I’m old. No, I am NOT as aesthetically attractive on the beach as that hot 25 year old over there, and that’s fine. I’m certainly not going to run around demanding that you find me so, and whining endlessly about it if you don’t.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I’ve never been overweight and I still wouldn’t pose on a beach in that bathing suit at anytime in my life. I just always hated my bathing suit image, top heavy, skinny legs and no butt, I looked like two martini olives speared on toothpicks. Would have loved for this to come back into style😉

          • Jadzia says:

            You laugh, but I HAD — and WORE — a knee-length skirted swimsuit for a while. It was while I was pregnant and I got it from a plus-size catalog. I absolutely loved it until I saw a picture of me in it and realized that I looked like Ma Duggar.

      I can’t sleep either. It REALLY REALLY REALLY sucks because as we all know, insomnia NEVER = “hey, here’s 4 extra productive hours!” No, I just shuffle around like a damn zombie every single morning lately. Most of all I hate it because there’s nothing to do late at night except ruminate about being lonely. It sucks!!!!!

      And mom was just in NJ from Hondoras for a visit at her due date. The state of NJ gets to fund the Zika anchor baby forever.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Pregnant women with a rash can fly from Central America to NJ ? Is this disease communicable or do you have to be bitten by an infected mosquito ? And so it begins….

        • Somebody says:

          I’m pretty sure they have to be bitten by a mosquito or it can also be transmitted through sex or blood transfusions.

          I would imagine they will keep mom in the hospital or quarantined in some fashion to keep her away from any chance of mosquitoes until she clears. The virus can linger in the blood for a week or two after symptoms clear. I’m not sure NJ has the type of mosquitoes that would become carriers of Zika, but I’m also quite sure NJ doesn’t want to find out whether the mosquitoes they have are capable of being carriers.

          • Lulu says:

            The mom had Zika months ago. She knew she had had it and came to the US at due date. I wonder why? /s The worst birth defects occur at early pregnancy stages with maternal infection with Zika.

  16. driguana says:

    Well that was very interesting! Ended up watching the entire presentation. Trump was really amazing…from either a good or bad perspective, I guess. I love how he does not take any flack or back down from the press. So calling someone “sleazy” on national television is either crazy, or maybe correct. What I did, and would suggest that you do, too, is look up Tom Llamas, the person he called “sleazy” and decide for yourself. As I watch all of this, I would have to agree that the press always finds some way to distort what Trump says.
    Here’s a little piece on Tom Llamas…would love to see more.

    • taw46 says:

    • DeniseVB says:

      If you look at Llamas’ twitter feed, he enjoyed that mutilated “Donald Pinata”. I’d say DJT is right calling him a sleaze. He’d be appalled if it were an Obama Pinata looking like roadkill. Sleaze!

      • Lulu says:

        This is also the same reporter who got bent when Trump said the term “anchor babies”. They went back and forth over that one last fall so they have a history and I think Trump is sick of looking at him. This dude is always offended so I suggest denying him media credentials or entry. He doesn’t even ask questions but rather resents or is offended by answers of earlier questions. Walking butthurt guy is a local station ABC reporter not even network I think.

    This is just a hubby appreciation post coz he is awesome.

    So our AC is ancient and it quit. Hubby knows nothing about ACs but he’s got tools, YouTube, and a can-do attitude. So he figured out he should replace a part, which he couldn’t get, so he got a similar part. Kinda worked, air but not cold. Need Freon.

    Called an AC place, who sent a youngish guy. He replaced the same part and pumped a bunch of Freon in. Turns it on, works for five minutes, and the fan dies. Guy scratches his head, says sorry, here’s the bill, we can credit it if we replace the whole thing.

    After he leaves hubby decides to investigate some more and figures out the guy had “reversed the terminals.” Which he unreverses and voila, we have AC again, for now.

    Yay for handy hubby!

  27. Lulu says:

    Trump is giving the media an ass-kicking which the public are enjoying immensely. After humping Obama’s leg for 9 years or so it is about time someone does it. Of course they don’t like getting chewed out at work but they are such pathetic hirelings and flunkies what did they expect after prostrating themselves for employers for Obama. They get stomped. In Germany the media is called “the lying press”. It is everywhere they are hated. They rank just above pick pockets in the public’s esteem.

  28. Myiq2xu™ says:

    If Trump hadn’t carefully vetted all that veteran’s groups he gave money to the media would have attacked him for that. As it is, bashing him for saying “$6 million” when the actual number is more like “$5.5 million” looks is petty and stupid.

    • Somebody says:

      He said almost 6 million and he has also said by the time we’re done it’ll be 6 million or by the time we’re done it’ll probably be over 6 million. Rounding 5.6 million up to 6 million doesn’t seem like an unpardonable sin to me.

      BTW Megyn Kelly had a vet on last night (Clinton operative) complaining about one of the groups Trump sent money to. An AMVET group that had an F rating, the F rating had to do with the telemarketing company they were using to fund raise. Good to know the Clinton team was quick to delve into each group looking for a nugget to scream about…….imagine if they had been so quick to respond to Benghazi security requests or FOIA requests??

      I really, really, really wish Trump had challenged the media to dig into The Clinton Foundation for a compare and contrast to his Vets charity.

          Jadzia, what’s going on in Paris with the riot videos we are seeing lately?

          • Jadzia says:

            I’ve been buried in work but I am guessing the videos are probably related to the ongoing protests against the “loi de travail” that Hollande and his buddies passed by doing an end run around the legislature. Even people who initially weren’t too upset about the substance of the law are pissed off that apparently we don’t live in a democracy anymore.

            Anyway, problem is, we’ve got a gazillion people on strike (fine, WELCOME TO FRANCE!!!!) but what you are probably seeing on TV are the “Black Bloc” types (remember Seattle in 1999?) who just want to smash and burn and attack cops. The grown-up strikers have public support, the anarchists absolutely do not.

            Fun fact: one of the people who was arrested for attempted murder a few days ago (I think the story was that they tried to set a cop car on fire, with the cop still inside) is AMERICAN. 27 years old!
