Remember the time Paul Ryan wouldn’t clap when President Obama called for the United States to be the country to cure cancer?

“For the loved ones we’ve all lost, for the family we can still save, let’s make America the country that cures cancer once and for all.”


While he was sitting next to Joe Biden, whose son was suffering with cancer?

Look, I’m not saying that was treason.  I’m just saying it was a real crappy thing to do. Double down crappy.  Dog dump crappy.

For Democrats to show Donald Trump any manner of approval about anything would be used for him to say, “See, everybody loves me.”  Besides, he clapped enough for himself to make up for those who didn’t.

  1. I remember. I took Ryan’s utter stupidity personally inasmuch as I lost my husband to cancer. Karma has a way of blindsiding lumps like Ryan. I will just have to go with that.

  2. I remember a guy, a few years ago, who claimed a sitting president was not born in this country, and therefore was not the legimate leader of this country. He even tried to convince other people his lie was true. He told everyone his personal investigators had uncovered big news, information which would reveal the truth of his claim.

    Some people say undermining the commander in chief could be considered treason. I don’t know, maybe it is.

  3. Rick, I hear you. Luckily here in this country ( for now) it is not. Which is why we are the best country, say anything resembling that is other countries and you can go to jail or disappear.

  4. Wow. Who knew there was photographic documentation from the early “wink wink” era. When repugnantcan politicians began openly showing disdain and contempt for anyone vaguely resembling a Democrat. “We’re going to show up and show our political opponents the same respect we’ve always shown them in the past (wink wink).” President Obama’s ethnicity provided them justification with enough of the electorate to dip their toes in the water, disparagingly speaking, and they found it to their liking. Then it was open season on Progressives. Catching Ryan giving the President a double barreled wink (both eyes at the same time!) is especially significant, for the reasons put forth by Madame J.J. above. Although attributing such a scathingly sophisticated maneuver to the speaker may be a bit generous, considering his reported inability to scratch his own ass without simple, small worded instructions from somebody in the Koch family.

    I’m pretty slow. When I started #4 there were no comments. My attempt at sarcasm is totally tone deaf coming after your comment and I apologize if I gave offense. I’m deeply sorry for your loss.

    Have had malignant melanoma for 27 yrs. surgery and pain the latest being removal of a golfball sized tumor from my hand and what surprised the surgeon there was a second tumor. My point is in the world’s richest country why is cancer rampant? I did nothing wrong, never had a sunburn no smoking no drinking. So according to rethugs who blame people for their illness, there’s nothing to blame. Oh wait, forgot about all the carcinogens rethug donors want released into our food and water so they can make more money. Oh wait, forgot about the climate change deniers whose ignorance and stupidity and greed will cause a gigantic release of mercury into our oceans and that causes major birth defect, cancer and just too many things to list. So to all you republicans who have become traitors to the people you swore a sacred oath to protect F**K YOU! You are murders just as if you shot all the Americans your greed has and will kill!

  7. There are few lower life forms than Paul Ryan.

    Yep, Democrats didn’t clap.
    Hear that? It’s the smallest violin in the world playing, “My Heart Bleeds.”

    Guess what else not one of them did? Not one yelled, “You lie!” during Trump’s speech – – although anyone who had would have been saying exactly what was happening in that moment. Know how I know that? Trump’s mouth was moving.

    Just sayin.

    Lyin’ Ryan has a little problem. Tax cuts didn’t arrange a little trickle down, there’s a massive debt ceiling about to deluge Ryan, his lord the stable genius and the not so useful tools in their orbit. Without bi-partisan assistance, what’s the plan now Paulie? Say hello to DACA, say good-bye to the st00pid wall and all of your Ayn Rand nonsense. Right Mitch?

  10. Someone on this very website stated, and I now agree, that WATER trickles down, but MONEY trickles up. Evidence supporting both views abound in the real world. Supply-side economics = trickle down theory = economic disaster.

  11. When I heard NPR play the tape of 45 calling me treasonous because I wouldn’t even watch (let alone applaud!) his craptastic SOTU, I yelled a few words that are gonna make Momma come up here with her bar of Lifeguard. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing!

    I wonder if there are any pre-WWII journals by average German citizens who couldn’t believe what they were hearing? I bet they sound a lot like the chat here in the Beauty Salon!

  12. “To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

    ― Theodore Roosevelt

    And he was a Republican. (He was saying it about Wilson, not about himself, but it still applies.)

  13. Oh folks – he’s never serious – he jokes about everything –

    When it doth prosper, none dare call it treason..”-Sir John Herrington, Elizabethan courtier, soldier, poet, and inventor of an early flush toilet…
