New Dems Will Tell Trump To Shove His Racist Wall Up His Ass Just Like Their Boss Pelosi


Much like any former reality TV star who is also a moron, Donald Trump has no idea how government works. Trump treats political negotiations like business deals, which we wouldn't advise even if he were actually any good at business deals. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has outmaneuvered and publicly humiliated Trump repeatedly both before and during this absurd government shutdown because she is, in her own badass words, a "legislative virtuoso." Trump should just say, "No mas!" and see if Pelosi would give him bus fare back to New York, but he's intent on fighting on like some cartoon villain who hasn't noticed that he loses in every episode.

Jonathan Swan at Axios reported Sunday that the White House is desperately searching for an "exit ramp" to all this. Unfortunately, Trump is driving both while drunk and with the brakes cut.

Senior administration officials have discussed inviting rank-and-file Democrats to the White House, hoping they may be willing to negotiate over funding for a barrier, according to two sources privy to the private discussions.

Republican officials involved conceded to me that it's a stretch to imagine the White House can break Nancy Pelosi's strong command of her caucus. But administration officials tell me they're going to try.

So Trump wants to play "House of Cards" but he couldn't beat Pelosi at Uno with all the draw fours in the deck. The speaker sets the agenda, and the freshman congresspeople who are awed by the sight of their own names on their office doors don't have the political muscle mass to force Pelosi to give Trump a dollar for his WALL.

Maybe Trump isn't as stupid as we know he is. If he can get at least some of the Dems to speak out against Pelosi's hardline stance it could prove a chink in her armor. Or something. As Barack Obama pointed out, the Donald is not really a "plans guy."

The most prominent freshman House member is Westchester's Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She bucks her party on the Green New Deal or marginal tax rates. She isn't defying Pelosi on pointless monuments to Trump's xenophobia. She also thinks he's racist garbage and isn't afraid to say so. If she did show up at the White House, the Secret Service shouldn't let the former bartender mix Trump a drink.

But Ocasio-Cortez is from one of those "better dead than Republican red" districts. According to Axios, the White House plans to "target freshman Democratic House members from districts Trump won in 2016." This is clinically speaking some "sad shit." It's reminiscent of a former high school sports hero calling up the women he dated during his glory days who have now moved on with their lives. These districts swung hard to Democrats in 2018 for a reason. Voters turned out in record numbers to slap Trump upside the head. Republican John Faso once represented a New York district Trump won by 7 percent and voted in lockstep with him. Now, he directly blames the president for losing his seat.

[T]he combination of the money against me ... and the general antipathy for Trump that's out there combined to make it a very difficult seat in a year like this... I'm glad that it's over. I'm very disappointed in the outcome, but I respect the judgment."

"No mas!"

Antonio Delgado defeated Faso in New York's 19th despite Paul Ryan's super PAC running racist ads that reminded voters Delgado was once a rapper and is still black. Delgado thinks Trump's WALL is dumb and the shutdown over it even dumber.

Over in Illinois, Lauren Underwood also won a 2016 Trump district. Is the president's staff of imbeciles and crooks really going to send her an invitation? The human toll of the shutdown has got Underwood fired up. The sister is mad. She's not going to listen to Trump's dumb ass.

Perhaps Trump should stay away from black folks on this one. It's tough with so many of the newbies being from groups Trump has insulted or is actively oppressing. But what about the white folks? We elected a few of those. Bonafide white person Elaine Luria upset Trump stooge Scott Taylor in Virginia's 2nd District, where Trump defeated Hillary Clinton. She has called out Trump and Senate Republicans for "failing to do their jobs" and reopen government. She's also reliably pointed out that the House has passed legislation to end the shutdown and that Trump is holding federal employees hostage. Many of her constituents are in the Coast Guard and are working without pay. Luria isn't going to the wall for Trump's WALL.

Down in solid red South Carolina, the stable genius in chief bullied Mark Sanford out of office and he didn't even get a lousy t-shirt to show for it. Instead, Trump's chosen candidate Katie Arrington lost to Democrat Joe Cunningham in a district Trump won by 13 points. Maybe this is where he can exert some pressure and convince Cunningham to swing by with some fine lowcountry beer.

Cunningham didn't vote for Pelosi for Speaker but he didn't support Trump's WALL during the campaign so it's unlikely he'll start now. Someone will have to tell Trump he has few friends among freshman Democrats and the most powerful person in DC right now is Speaker Pelosi. Sad!

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.
