This Is Kinda Fun

June 30, 2016 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Okay, so Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah popped his nose outta joint yesterday throwing a hissy fit about Donald Trump. He said that Trump accused his “best friend’s father of conspiring to kill John Kennedy” (and you thought Ted Cruz didn’t have any friends), that he’s “religiously intolerant,” that people in Utah don’t like him, and that he often dresses in high heels and black knee socks.

Okay, so I made up that last one.  So sue me.

Next thing I see is a story from NBC News about Donald Trump saying “there should be consequences” for Republicans who aren’t supporting him.

Yeah, well, that’s not news.  But, the visuals on the story got me to chuckle.

I had to read it twice before I understood that Trump wasn’t going to waterboard Republicans who don’t support him.

To be honest, I was disappointed because that would have been the absolute coolest Republican convention ever.

    Juanita Jean Herownself, don’t despair. Thanks to Donnie Drumpf July in Cleveland could be the bestest ever State Fair ever. Those little booths with balloons on clown faces and water pistols to blow them up? Think Donnie and the NRA, while the snacilbupeR find a whole new meaning in “Cleveland Rocks!”

    Their are consequences. They may get reelected, and we will have to put up with them a while longer. Come on you guys follow Drumpf off the cliff. Get in line.

    Whatever happened to voting for the best candidate regardless of party affiliation? Drumpf goes out of his way to alienate everyone and then wonders why they don’t support him. Clueless dip-@#@#.

    That’s it!! I’ve got it!! How to fill the many empty prime-time hours of TV at the Rethuglican Convention(mis-spelling of that word intentional)! PUBLIC WATERBOARDINGS….they could have a contest: flunkies who failed in fund-raising can be waterboarded until they admit their failings to the Party.Think of the slobbering crowds,waiting impatiently to see who drowns first! They’ll love it,it’s guaranteed to be boffo in the ratings!Since only Drumpf “has the best words,” why let anyone else profane the sacred stage by uttering less-than the best WORDS?

    If I knew they were going to waterboard the Republicans, by golly, I might actually watch that!! Otherwise, watching is a no-go for me! Blech!!
    It’s going to end up being a Snake Oil Salesman Show … no one seems too eager to tout the greatness of Herr Drumpf … he’s so good at blowing his own horn, he may have to do it all himself! You know because he’s so great, he has the BEST words and thoughts … so, you know!! He’s the BESTEST there is!! Blech! Blech! Blech!!

  6. Trump is metaphorically waterboarding the entire GOP every day in every way. That’s when he’s not reaming them. Or disrespecting them. Or giving them attitude.

    I could wear out a thesaurus on the ways Trump shows how much he despises his own party. It is eerily reminiscent of the way Repubs proclaim that they love their country but show that they despise most of the people in it.

    Since we now live in a post-factual pseudo-democracy, Trump can say that the sky over a flat earth is bright yellow with a pale blue sun and none of his minions would think it even slightly peculiar. Mocking him is pointless and futile.

    Poor Donnie.

    But… a bit OT:
    Tell everyone you know to stay away from Cleveland during the Convention. Tell them to STAY AWAY. No protests, no marches… nothing. We don’t need to give the Rs video to lambast Dems. The Rs are fully ccapable of staging this catastrophe all by themselves. And I don’t want to see any Dem get sHot in Cleveland.

    Tell them — STAY AWAY!

  10. Since Trump is pro-waterboarding, I think he should try it himself– on the receiving end. In public would be good too.

    WashPost today mentions that among the no-shows will be Dubya, Jeb, McCain, and Romney. Don’t know about Papa Bush, but he may be a bit old for the trip. That would mean both their previous presidents and both their previous nominees are boycotting their signature event. Well, NObody wants Dubya there; they keep pretending he didn’t exist. And McCain and Romney are “Loooosers!”

    The problem y’all aren’t mentioning about the GOP convention is that it is going to be one big ugly nasty Hate Hillary witch-burning. Because that’s all they’ve got.

  11. I’m confused I thought during the first repug “debate” and since then Drumpf had waffled on support other candidates?

    http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2016/03/29/donald-trump-says-he-no-longer-vows-to-support-the-republican-nominee/?_r=0

    When did he think everyone HAD to drink the kool-aid?

    I was cleaning out a closet to make room for some more stuff I don’t need to keep and I found a box I had forgotten about. It contained some DVD’s that I bought a while ago and never watched.
    So I have my choice of Charmed, Buffy, Nikita or the Highlander. Any and all would be more intellectually stimulating than watching the Repugs.

  13. My stars and garters! Cleveland just took out a 50 MILLION DOLLAR insurance package on itself just for the damn R convention, otherwise known as the “mistake on the lake.”

    I’m with JAKvirginia NO PROTESTS AT THE R CONVENTION. None, zip, zero, nadda.

    Herr Donald has already gotten way too much free publicity for his hate speech, why give him more?

  15. @Sharon 11:

    It actually is very simple. Trump is Chaotic Evil in alignment. So 1) No rules should ever be applied to him–he’s chaotic. 2) His ego is his biggest driver, so everyone else in the world should pander to it. 3) If they don’t pander to it, then he has the right to invoke ugly consequences on them–that’s part of being evil (ultimate greed/ego type focus with willingness for damaging others to pander to it).

    So, he NEVER really agreed to support anyone but himself, but he–being so god-like in his own mind–expects that everyone else on the panel and in the party should pay obeisance and/or worship him. He has a very “Old Testament” view of being God.

  16. By the way, I’m still trying to figure out Hillary’s true alignment in D&D terms. Any insights others would like to share?

    If you use Facebook, and want to have a good giggle, go to the Anti-Media’s page, and scroll down for the video, “The Devil Endorses Donald Trump.” You can thank me later.
