In the wake of news organizations pulling out of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, SCROTUS just announced he is not attending. Of course, he did it on Twitter. He’s trying to avoid the huge  embarrassment of being savaged by unrelenting truth.

    Trumplethinskin simply can’t handle the truth nor the heat in the kitchen. You know if they aren’t bow and scraping and throwing air kisses to him that he’s not a happy camper!!
    Oh, boohoo you big orange baby!!! LOL
    The attendees will have a delightful time without his presence!!! LOL

  2. SteveTheReturned says:

    Is Alec Baldwin available for the night of that dinner? Hope so.

    Remember, back when our presidents were experienced, sane grownups? Way back, like just a few weeks ago? Lord help us all.

  3. JAKvirginia says:

    Ewww… SCROTUS! Flees! Nothin’ worse! Somebody get the spray!

  4. Who would have thought the POTUS of the US is a coward?
    With the press no less.

  5. OldMayfly* says:

    Yeah, yeah! The non-elected prez is not required to adhiere to the Constitution. We are now living in US bizarro-world.

  6. Orange is the new yellow.

  7. AK Lynn: +5!

    What a bumper sticker!

  8. Fine. Don’t show up. We’ll just talk about you.

  9. Whats that old saying about if a tree falls in the woods will anyone hear it? My reaction always was, so what? If SCROTUS wimps out on a press dinner, would I end up clutching my pearls on a fainting couch? Nah.

  10. It’ll probably be a lot more fun now. Maybe all of those agencies that canceled their before and after parties will change their minds.

  11. I agree with Steve – it would be hilarious if they had Baldwin on instead, sitting in the president’s chair.

  12. Capital idea, SteveTheReturned! Kate McKinnon(Kellyanne) and Melissa McCarthy(Spicey Sean) would make the evening even more memorable.

  13. AKLynne-
    That slogan would look really good on a red baseball hat!

  14. Poor little rich boy. Is he going to Fl. to Pout and find some love.
    What a Baby. Must be nice to never have to face reality.
    —-Good idea maryelle.– I would tape that show.

  15. JAKvirginia says:

    AK Lynne… for the win!

    (And it rhymes! )

  16. slipstream says:

    When danger reared its ugly head,
    He bravely turned his tail and fled.

    Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
    And gallantly he chickened out.

    Swiftly taking to his feet,
    He beat a very brave retreat.

    Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin!

  17. When, to evade Destruction’s hand,
    To hide they all proceeded,
    No soldier in that gallant band
    Hid half as well as he did.
    He lay concealed throughout the war,
    And so preserved his gore, O!
    That unaffected,
    Well connected
    The Duke of Plaza-Toro!
    In every doughty deed, ha, ha!
    He always took the lead, ha, ha!
    That unaffected,
    Well connected
    The Duke of Plaza-Toro!

  18. I suppose it’s too late to get Stephen Colbert to host it.

  19. Maybe Colbert and Baldwin! Wow!

  20. And Rosie as Bannon!

    You’ve heard of BLOTUS ? = Biggest Liar of the United States

  21. I don’t use SCROTUS. I now call him the So-Called Ruler Of The Unruly Masses. I’ll let you work out what the acronym for that is.

  22. Jim Artlip says:

    Look, isn’t it about time to stop the Trump-buddy bullying name-calling like “SCROTUS”. There is plenty of work to be done, plenty of valid things to be said against this Administration without resorting to absurd febrile AND OFF-PUTTING language that belongs in Trump’s mouth, not ours. I rarely even read anyone but Juanita Jean on this site anymore, not because of what you others say, but because of the absurd bullying way in which you say it.

    Just sayin’.

  23. If ‘the media’, the legitimate ones, has any guts they would all boycott the WH briefings and pressers; then the only ones sitting there would be FuxNooz, WashTimes, Breitfart, etc.
    How long before the WH caved in? Or not, which would be good too.

    Remember, 86% of Repukes just love their SCROTUS… Even now, after the ceaseless lying, continual FU’s, and obvious proto-fascist goals.

    Biggest issue now, to me anyway, is the apparent discarding of the nuclear “MAD Doctrine” (Mutually Assured Destruction), which prevented an all out thermonuclear war by imposing a +- parity of destruction. The Trump cabal wants to upset that by seeking ‘superiority’? WWIII here we come.

  24. @Jim Artlip:

    NO. People can do both, we’re not one dimensional. As far as I’m concerned the ones who always say “let’s be mature’, ‘we need to stop saying blah blah blah’, ‘ignore them, they’ll go away’ etc. are the ones who allowed these douchebags their power. While people pat themselves on the back for being ‘mature’ or tolerate the intolerable, the appalling excuse for humans and their dumbass leader are burning everything good about this country down to the ground without having to be held accountable for their actions. I’m perfectly happy to point out to these scumbags that they are horrible people using whatever descriptive language or means necessary.

  25. Sam in San Antonio says:

    A perfect substitute for Trump would be a fan blowing across fresh cow droppings

  26. @ gif

    I still disagree. We’re not fighting for the hearts and minds of the totally deplorable. We need the middle, the not-hopelessly-Right, the redeemables, and I guarantee you’re not gaining them by making your “arguments” indistinguishable language-wise from those you rightly deplore.

    And you’re sure not going to get them back with rote, knee-jerk nonsense like SCROTUS or endless repetition of silly phrases like “Dat Guy”. I have been known to use strong language myself but (nearly) always language appropriate to the specific argument or interaction.

  27. @jim

    Your objection is duly noted.

    Veni Vidi Fugit.

    Drumpf will twitter bomb the NerdProm
    From an entirely safe distance
    The commander in chief to his vast relief
    Won’t have to face public resistance

    His twitter account from its Oval office mount
    will lob unmitigated falsehoods
    few will land no collateral damage unplanned
    Drumpf can’t hit the side of a barn, that’s understood

    After twitter fight through the long weary night
    Drumpf warrior longs for deep rest
    Fortunately no rest for the weary
    Morning papers and tv make Donnie depressed

    The liar in chief lost the battle of wits
    The only one still living in denial
    Media elites counter Drumpf tweeter twits
    That truly makes America smile

    Loser loser Drumpf’s a loser Bwahahahahahaha!

  29. Jim, are we talking to the middle here or are we talking among ourselves, where pretty much all of us deplore Trump and his policies? If I were trying to persuade someone who might be persuadable, I wouldn’t call him the Barking Yam, but here I’ll call him what I like. However immature I’m being, I can’t top him, which is an appalling situation for our country. I reserve the right to blow off some steam among friends.

  30. Marcia in CO says:

    I believe that since Ms. Juanita aka Susan B. is the owner/operator of this site, it is up to her to say … “OK, folks … we’ve had enough of the various references to The Orange One in DC, so knock it off!”
    Bwahahahahaha! or LOL LOL LOL LOL
    When any of us have stepped over the line, she lets us know it’s gone too far!
    Thank you! We love it here!!

  31. JAKvirginia says:

    Jim Artlip: If you can’t call a liar a liar, or any other name that’s deserving, you should judge your own shortcomings not others. And ‘work to be done’? I and many others, such as Miss JuanitaJean, did it through all of 2016. We then did the most important work we could; we didn’t vote for the sumbitch.

    If you feel the need to lecture, aim yourself at the White House and Congress and the Republican party. We here didn’t want or create this mess.

  32. Jim, I admire your principals, but at this point my primary concern is that Dems win elections.

    It is unfortunate, but slogans and labels and name-calling seem to be working out too well for Repubs. The labelled the ACA “ObamaCare” and claimed it had death panels. It worked. People hate it without having any idea what it is or does. Some people using the ACA want ObamaCare repealed; they genuinely don’t know they’ll lose their coverage.

    The Dems need to fight dirty if that’s what it takes to win elections. That’s not pure or ideal, but the 2000 election and the 2010 election and the 2016 election have made me into a pragmatist.

  33. Ridicule can be deadly. The more on-target the better. That’s why tyrants censor comedians and why Stalin used to lock up poets. (I am not sure if the Russians had any comics other than the ironic poets.)

  34. There needs to be a place where we can vent, and after venting get to work. I for one do not like comments made about people’s appearance since there is only so much that they can do about that. However, it is a free country (so far) so comment on what you need to, then go do something that helps the cause. Write a check, join a protest, help someone in need. We are obligated as Democrats to be better people than the opposition.

  35. JAKvirginia says:

    Mary Beth: I’m with you 99%. But the appearance thing? I don’t go there unless they do. And Trump has been the biggest bully of them all. He crossed that line when he mocked the physically challenged reporter from the NYT. He deserves every snide comment about his own appearance since then.

  36. Linda Phipps says:

    Perhaps someone on staff should read “Ozymandias” to him. But, hell, he wouldn’t get it.

  37. Call the silly man elected POTUS on 11/08/2016 and duly inaugurated on 1/20/2017 silly names is fine. Inside this group or outside this group IM<HO. BUT, the anger, the disappointment, the disbelief that causes the silliness must manifest itself as action. Local action. Support a Democrat's run in every office from 3rd assistant part-time animal control officer to United States Senator. Run for, win, and change forever one of those offices. If nothing else 11/08/2016 should serve everyone of voting age a painful reminder of what happens when good people either don't vote or don't run. Run as a Democrat for office. Vote for Democrats running for offices. Americans can no longer afford the luxury of voting for any candidate but a Democrat. Sorry Independents… Trump killed you too.

  38. Jane & PKM says:

    Linda Phipps, from what has been shared or ‘leaked’ from the staff and family of Orange Foolius, he’s not big into bedtime stories in print form. Maybe NSA Ret. Gen McMasters will delegate someone to upload Donnie’s daily info feeding into a bedtime story format. Or, maybe the good General will do us all a favor and personally rock Donnie to sleep with an M-16 buttstock from Donnie’s failed years of avoiding STDs and Viet Nam. Current speculative diagnosis for Donnie is Neurosyphilis. He dodged the military service bullet so to speak, but failed to have someone read him the instructions on how to take his STD medication.

    Micr, it’s lesson redux time. If 8 years of Dubya hasn’t educated both the DNC and voters, we need better messaging. I’m working on that, but am thinking probably I should refine some “middle ground” between “Dear Voter” and “Hey Dumbass,” or not. There are only so many D’Oh stickers we can pass out to the snacilbupeR. They only wanted Obamacare repealed, not their ACA and expanded Medicaid, subsidies, etc ad nauseum. After what was Debbie WTF Schultz, Jane says LIFT your e-mail spam ban on the DNC, so we CAN communicate. Done! When Jane speaks, I listen!! 😀

  39. I love the idea of SNL impersonators at the dinner. Bwahahahahahaha! And I REALLY REALLY want Rosie O’Donnell to play NaziKKK Bannon.

    TWMDBS is where I come to vent, in addition to an email pal who doesn’t mind when I use the profanest profanities I can imagine. They are both wonderful releases. Then I’m ready to go out, be civil, write emails, make phone calls, and harass the hell out of my jackassy snacilbupeR rep, Jarhead Loser, aka Jason Lewis.

    I LOVE YOU TWMDBS!!!!!!!

  40. Linda Phipps says:

    Micr, yes, I agree: perhaps the sonnet could be reduced to two Tweets, particularly the part about broken, particularly – ” Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,”

  41. During the election campaign, Hillary and most Dems sought to woo moderate Republicans in order to defeat Trump. That certainly didn’t work. We now have to choose between soft-pedaling our disdain and contempt for this fascist or fighting both him and the Republican sycophants head on, or everything we cherish about our country will disappear. They will destroy our economy, our environment, our civil rights and our position as a beacon of freedom to the global community.
    This salon is meant to be a bastion of progressive, liberal thinkers, not an apology to the moderates.

  42. And kill most of advanced civilization while he’s exercising his power.
