Trump Twitter Account Refutes Reports Of Him Calling Meghan Markle 'Nasty' With Audio Of Him Doing Just That.

popular

Late last night, several news outlets reported that Donald Trump called Meghan Markle "nasty" after hearing that she had called him a misogynist and said she wanted to leave the country if he was elected. Which, duh, she did. Naturally, people thought that was a pretty gross thing to say about the Duchess of Sussex. Well, some people. Other people, the people who voted for this audibly tan dumpster fire of a human being, were probably quite pleased.

Following the outcry, the Trump War Room Twitter account, the account for Trump's official 2020 campaign, issued an audio recording of the interview to "prove" that Trump did not, in fact, call Meghan Markle "nasty."


AND YET... the audio recording did not only include the part in which he called the Duchess "nasty," but was also in no way different from what had been reported.

Via Huffington Post:

Donald Trump has branded Meghan Markle "nasty" after discovering she once said she would leave the US if he became president because he is "misogynistic" and "divisive".

In an interview with The Sun, the president said he was not aware of the comments made by the Duchess, and saying: "I didn't know that. What can I say?

"I didn't know that she was nasty."

This is exactly what he says in the audio recording above. There is literally no difference between what happened in the audio recording and what was reported anywhere. He called Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex and star of the Suits, a show I have never seen but totally mean to get to at some point because Gina Torres is pretty great and I kind of have a crush on Dulé Hill because Psych and also because he is a very good tap dancer (tap dancing is the handsomest of all possible talents, I don't make the rules).

Trump, as we all know, has a documented history of referring to women who do not consider misogyny an attractive quality in a president as being "nasty." At this point, we should all probably just start taking it as a compliment when he does so. If Trump calls you "nasty," it pretty much means you are awesome.

That being said, it would sure be swell if Trump could be at least as polite to our allies as he is to authoritarian dictators.

Great GOP wordsmith Frank Luntz, the guy who gave us the "death tax" and who urged the George W. Bush administration to talk about "climate change" since it was less politically motivating than "global warming," did some more of his characteristic word magic today! While staying at the Hotel Imperial in Vienna, Austria, Luntz offered this cautionary tale about the evils of socialism, as illustrated by the shoddy conditions in a 5-star luxury hotel owned by Dubai's "Al Habtoor" conglomerate and operated by Marriott:

Talk about your grim hellholes! Apparently, there's only one elevator in the entire building, and it's been broken for three days, proving that European-style socialism is a failure that should never be imported to the USA, where -- damn it! -- all buildings work!

As some smartass pointed out, now Luntz may have to take the STAIRS, like a common Bolshevik!

We're still trying to get our heads around how a delay in getting an elevator fixed in a luxury hotel owned by the United Arab Emirati proprietors of Dubai's

  • Habtoor Grand Resort
  • Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah
  • Habtoor Palace, LXR Hotels & Resorts
  • V Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton
  • Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City
  • Metropolitan Hotel Dubai
  • Al Habtoor Polo Resort

as well as

  • Imperial Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Vienna (Austria)
  • Hilton London Wembley (United Kingdom)
  • Hilton Beirut Habtoor Grand (Lebanon)
  • Hilton Beirut Metropolitan Palace (Lebanon)
  • President Abraham Lincoln Springfield – a DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel (United States)
  • InterContinental Budapest (Hungary)
  • The Ritz-Carlton, Budapest (Hungary)

is an example of the horrors of socialism, but then, we don't earn the big bucks like Luntz does. Austria is among the 14 richest countries in the world, so we're fairly certain it's not a commie hellhole. Then again, there is a very strong social safety net, so maybe people in subsidized housing stole all the elevator parts. Or perhaps the elevator would have been fixed sooner if only Austria didn't have such strong unions. It's a mystery.

Or maybe it's that NATIONAL socialism that's the problem, seeing as it has socialism RIGHT IN THE NAME!

Adolf Hitler, once a day labourer outside the Hotel Imperial Vienna, returned as the Führer and "delivered a speech to a rapturous crowd from [the hotel] suite's balcony, on 14 March 1938", according to www.famoushotels.org.

We suppose it's worth noting that the Imperial is decidedly not owned or operated by the Austrian government, where a far-Right coalition has recently imploded -- although maybe Luntz is confused about that, since official state guests are traditionally housed there. In any case, the elevator's busted, it's in Europe, Europe is socialist, and Frank Luntz is homesick for America, where no elevator ever goes unrepaired for an entire weekend. It simply has never happened because of our efficient free market!

Still, Luntz's tweet inspired some valuable reflections on how economic theory shapes the reality of everyday life. This is the kind of Austrian economics we can support.



In conclusion, capitalism always allocates resources efficiently and fairly, although that still doesn't explain why Frank Luntz has a job. And now it would be your DOKTOR ZOOM'S BIRTHDAY PARTY OPEN THREAD, if only the socialists would fix the elevator, the end.
