We didn't all appreciate back in 2006 how this film was a pre-documentary.

OK, ladles and jellyspoons:

Tomorrow is Stinky's big day in court, and I have not yet seen a betting pool forecasting exactly how he will evade consequences THIS time.

Will he:

File some sort of last minute frivolous pseudo-legal mumbo jumbo?

Flee the country?

Hide under the bed at Bug-a-Lardo?

Just fold his arms and refuse to show up?

Call in a bomb threat to the courthouse building?

All of the above?

None of the above?

Other? [Fill in here] ___________

His team will find fresh reasons for delay.

Trump is too dangerous to be president. But If Biden doesnโ€™t start WW3 with Iran I will have no choice but to vote for Trump again.

WWIII w/ iran would prolly cement bidenโ€™s victory in โ€˜24, (donโ€™t want to be changing horses mid-stream) if it goes that way expect the R congress critters to start lovinโ€™ on iranians to please the comb-over caligula โ€ฆ feared back in โ€˜20 he would start some military action to bolster his odds โ€ฆ whew, certainly dodged that bullet โ€ฆ now if bibi didnโ€™t need to cling to power (like someone we know) we could breathe easy โ€ฆ boltonโ€™s a shitegoblin โ€ฆ

It is impossible to top a now forgotten blogger's description of John Bolton as, "mustache on his ass".

Watched him on MSNBC ... "yes, but Biden's policies are terrible." Impressive that he got me past angry, to just jaw dropped. WTF could you POSSIBLY mean, relative to Earth II. Garbage Walrus.

Gretchen Whitmer just said "we've got 3 lying SC justices..."

LOL, I guess honesty isn't a necessary requirement to be a SC justice. Open corruption is also OK, as long as you're a Republican.

Funny how the press never finds people who backed Trump in 2020 but now back Biden.

It doesnโ€™t fit the narrative.

Most of the cult members are still in the cult, and they will be until Trump cuts their SS in half to fund tax cuts for billionaires, and takes their guns when they start to turn on him.

They are hard to spot when asking people at a Trump rally, but they are there if you squint really hard.

I don't know where I saw this article - I read it in the middle of the night while not being able to sleep - but it was about all the little people who vacuumed up Truth Social shares in hopes of making a buck and to demonstrate their loyalty to the Fuhrer.

It was kind of sad and kind of angering and kind of meh. They're all convinced it's going to bounce back and be something huge, and any doubters, of course, are accused of being part of the Deep State.

I was struck by one guy who'd invested $25K - pretty much his entire "nest egg," he said - and was sure his losses would turn around. But he hadn't told his family that he'd invested all that money nor that it was tanking, and said that wasn't the kind of thing one revealed to one's family.

โ€œCome on DJT, every time I buy more, the price drops more,โ€

I used to have a beautiful little cat that was... not a genius among cats.

Every so often, she would accidentally bite her tail while washing it. This would make her mad, so she would fly into a rage, bite the offending tail full force, then look up at me with this expression of absolute shock and betrayal, and cry.

I would shrug and say, "Well, don't do it if it hurts!"

I read it this morning expecting to feel a tad superior and mock them, but that was just too pitiful. Brainwashed idiots throwing everything away on Donald J Trump. What a pathetic waste

Expand full comment

You're a nicer person than I am (setting the bar low, perhaps).

I feel more than a tad superior and am enjoying mocking them in the half-assed way one does.

That having been said, there is more than a whiff of... well, there's no other way to say it but *genuine mental illness* in these people's statements that's downright creepy.

"The companyโ€™s leaders, he said, are being โ€œtoo silent right nowโ€ amid questions about the falling share price, but he suspects itโ€™s because theyโ€™re working on something amazing and new."

I started exactly like you - firmly in the mocking the fuck out of these chumps camp - I ended just feeling they are too pathetic and genuinely mentally challenged to mock.

First, if your life savings to invest is $25k and you bet it all on Truth Social? Thatโ€™s well beyond sad and into something more โ€ฆ I dunno? but itโ€™s bad. Second, how do any of them see Trump and think - yup thatโ€™s my guy? Heโ€™s visually disgusting with the orange goop and the fake hair, plus he makes absolutely no sense. Theyโ€™re a danger to themselves and others.

If it wasnโ€™t that he would have blown it on something else. Anyone with half a brain could see it was worthless. Twitter isnโ€™t really worth what it is either. Is he going to keep voting Trump? Yes? Then fuck that guy.

The Maya women just sound like complete bs. So youโ€™re 19 and you are engaged enough at that age to vote Biden but now youโ€™re concerned about the border and crime but not your reproductive rights and at 23 you have completely changed from Democrat to Republican even though you are likely making more money because of Democrat policies?? I would really like to know how they get these quotes. Mail? Phone? Scouring the Canoga Park Dennys parking lot? Zero way this person is not a plant. Zero.

My favorites are the Muslims in Michigan who aren't going to vote for Biden, because he didn't stop Bibi from leveling Gaza. They think Trump is going to be an improvement? Uhhh...sure, all those new high-rises that the Trump organization will be building on the coast surely will have low income apartments for the Palestinians. Things will be just GREAT for Muslims under a Trump regime.

Also, blacks, Messicans, gays, elderly people (sorry your SS and Medicare aren't available anymore Grandma, maybe Charles Koch will trickle down on you!), and any other minority who thinks Trump is going to be their ally.

Expand full comment

Iโ€™m relatively certain that was a protest vote for the primary only. Honestly, I agree that Biden could perhaps try to apply a bit more pressure, maybe by reducing arms sales?

I suspect that most of them who otherwise would be inclined to vote for Biden still will in the general election, because Trump is on record as wanting to ban Muslims from even entering America.

Expand full comment

You have more faith in the intelligence of Americans than I do. CNN keeps interviewing Muslims in MI who say they aren't going to vote for Biden, because he won't stop Israel from destroying Gaza. I'm not without sympathy for their cause, but I also know Trump will be WAY worse in any scenario you would care to think about.
