Can we just say that when Fox idiot Maria Bartiromo sounds like the sane person in a situation, that is a worrisome situation? That is what happened when Donald Trump -- who's just had a fantastic Infrastructure Week, assuming it is Infrastructure Week, and we always do -- sat down for what was supposed to be an easy breezy "You're the best!"/"No YOU are, Mister President!" interview with his beloved Fox pals.

Instead Maria Bartiromo had to ask the question on everybody's mind, which is WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU OH MY GOD, or, more clearly, is there a reason you have spent this entire week of your presidency picking a fight with a dead guy, who somehow seems to be winning that fight, because you are literally so stupid and incompetent you LOSE FIGHTS TO DEAD GUYS?

She said it nicer than that, though.

Preview: Trump sounds off on McCain in exclusive FBN interview

BARTIROMO: You spent a good portion of your time in Ohio the other day trashing John McCain. Senator John McCain is dead.


TRUMP: So, it's not a good portion of my time, it's a very small portion. But if you realize about three days ago it came out that his main person gave to the FBI the Fake News Dossier, it was a fake, it was a fraud, it was paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, they gave it to John McCain, who gave it to the FBI for very evil purposes. That's not good. And the other thing, he voted against repeal and replace. Now he's been campaigning for years for repeal and replace, I'm not a fan! After all of this time, he's -- think of this! -- repeal and replace, we would've had great healthcare ...

BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH, it's the exact same speech he's been giving all week, it's all full-of-shit syphilis-brained lies, there's no need to debunk it again, because we already did that.

BARTIROMO: But he's dead. He can't punch back.


That's right, the president of the United States's response to "but he's dead" was "Uh! NO?"

Here are the new lies:

TRUMP: I don't talk about it. People ask me the question! I didn't bring this up, you just brought it up, you asked the question.

BARTIROMO: Well, you talked about it this week.

TRUMP: You asked me the question. When I went out yesterday to the scrum, they asked me the question. When they asked me the question, I answered the question. But you people bring it up, I don't bring it up. I'm not a fan. He was horrible, what he did with repeal and replace, it was, what he did to the Republican Party, and the nation, and to sick people that could have had great healthcare? Was not good. So I'm not a fan of John McCain and THAT'S FINE!

And the Fox Business anchor who had just played the clip responded, "Uh huh ..."

Because the man is batshit.

So Trump only brings up John McCain when others bring it up, except for sometimes he brings up John McCain in front of audiences in Ohio, and sometimes he whines about John McCain all day long on Twitter, because he believes any conspiracy theory that gets vomited into the back of his throat by Fox News, because he is the stupidest person who ever graced God's green earth, BUT ALL THE OTHER TIMES, it's because you people bring it up. Truly, why won't journalists stop asking Trump about John McCain!

Now here's what's interesting. Aaron Blake from the Washington Post tweeted out more transcript, with a more extended fight, where Trump claimed that Bartiromo wasn't supposed to bring it up, suggesting that the White House had stipulated that Dear Leader was not meant to be asked about that particular grievance he's nursing. But Bartiromo did bring it up, therefore Fox News and Fox Business are now Fake News, until this weekend at Mar-a-Lago, when Trump spends 57 hours of each day watching Fox News, at which point Fox News will be his favorite again.

So is this Bartiromo going rogue and saying fuck it and asking the McCain question? Blake followed up with a second tweet, reporting that Bartiromo said this morning that there were no conditions on the interview, which means Fox News is saying Trump is a bullshit liar. First they're saying "John McCain is dead" to his face and then they're saying he's lying! What has gotten into our Fox News?

Nothing. Absolutely nothing at all.

Or for fuck's sake.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.

Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
