funny man… sometimes.

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

Sometime after Trump’s time in office expires — hopefully after the next election — I think we’ll come back around to admitting that — on occasion — the President could be funny.  Instance:

“They got rid of the lightbulb that people got used to. The new bulb is many times more expensive and I hate to say it, it doesn’t make you look as good,” Mr Trump said.
“Of course, being a vain person, that’s very important to me. It’s like – it gives you an orange look. I don’t want an orange look.”

 Interesting to note the headlines for this one.  It’s either him “complaining” that he turns orange or… (see Murdoch’s New York Post) — joking.  This is one where the right wing news happens to be more correct.
I’m not saying it will be a thick volume, but a collection of “The Wit of President Donald Trump” may be worth pursuing.

not real news

Someone from Sinclair Broadcasting (or is it Fox News?) asks Nancy Pelosi the ever so pertinent question… Do you hate Trump?  I suppose if I want to bend over backward to be overly fair, this was the leading question you got for Bush on trying to get some admission of some mistake, or something.  As it were, Pelosi says something or other, and a hashtag flies out of twitter.  (Oddly not hashtag I’m Catholic, which was part of the response.)

Next up… asking her (or some Democrat)… do you think Trump (or McConnell?) is Evil?  (Of course, if the Republicans were asked, and came back with a smirking yes, the right twittersphere would applaud.)

she wasn’t as obnoxious as Beto O’Rourke and Kirsten Gillibrand, but…

Kamala Harris is out.  Which means… Julian Castro and Cory Booker see an opportunity to scoop up… to revitalize…

all that Kamala Harris support that’s out there

It’s there for the taking.  I mean, they better.  Otherwise it’s just Michael Bloomberg steam-rolling to the nomination.
