The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 5 (re-post)


I was so tired in the past week that I basically took a few days off from the news so I don’t cover a lot this week. I’ve left out the stuff about the new DNC chairman and the latest on healthcare reform but hey, there’s always next week. (more…)

The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 4: A Whole Lotta Backpfeifengesicht

First things first, I love that the Germans have a word for just about everything.

Backpfeifengesicht: a face in need of a slap

Second of all, there may not be a week 5. I am sorely tempted to just bury my head in the clouds and binge watch reality TV. I need a holiday from real. We’ll see! (more…)

The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 3



This week’s episode is shorter because the bullshit is occurring at a rate that not even I can (or really want to) keep up with.


3-0

Trump loses appeal court bid to reinstate travel ban!! 

Fuck yeah! Of course, the big baby had to have his say via Twitter.


Apparently, he won’t rush to appeal, so.

The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 2


It’s been another crazy week full of lies, lies, lies and more lies and the most bizarre Black History Month address I’ve ever read. Oh and Trump wants women to ‘dress like women’ probably so that he has maximum pussy access.

Ongoing Development

The Muslim Ban™ is also now in jeopardy.

Federal Judge James Robart ruled against government lawyers’ claims that US states did not have the standing to challenge Mr Trump’s executive order.

Trump’s response:

Well, his grammar is good at least. Everything else reeks of bullshit.

They filed an appeal and failed miserably. SAD.


Sigh.


In this week’s Donald Duck segment (wherein Trump dodges another campaign policy): he reneged his pledge to lower the price of drugs.

On Jan. 11, Trump said: “Pharma has a lot of lobbies, a lot of lobbyists and a lot of power. And there’s very little bidding on drugs. We’re the largest buyer of drugs in the world, and yet we don’t bid properly.”

Naturally, he’s now changed his mind.


When They Go Low, We Go High

Sally Yates sparked controversy after she refused to back the President’s travel ban which halted admission to refugees and as well as immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries.

After a federal judge ordered a review of the policy, Ms Yates announced that her staff at the Justice Department would not seek to defend it in court as she objected on grounds of conscience, writing in a letter to her staff that she wasn’t “convinced that the defense of the executive order is consistent with these responsibilities, nor am I convinced that the executive order is lawful.”

Naturally, Trump fired her. (more…)

Alternative New Year Resolutions


January is always accompanied by a bunch of new years resolutions that nobody keeps up with. Gym CEOs sit behind large desks and rub their hands with glee because ‘lose weight‘ is usually number one on the list. And fair enough, that’s a reasonable resolution. Or y’know, a personal goal people probably had before January 1st. Let’s be honest, a lot of resolutions are things that people should and probably will be doing anyway. And in light of 2016, nobody who wanted to be a better person last year was truly successful.
So here’s my alternative list of suggestions for people.

**Be Less Of An Asshole**

This one goes out to the deplorables, liberals, brexiteers, remainers, bigots, racist, general assholes. Just try to turn it down a notch and *listen* to other people. Even if you don’t like what they’re saying, acting like a bunch of school girls won’t help anybody. Being a bully doesn’t help anybody. (more…)

Donald Trump Winning Wasn’t A Bigly Surprise

So….to recap, the next President of the United States is someone who:
– was recently on a reality TV show — he was literally lying for a living.
– bragged about sexual assault and grabbing women by the pussy.
– is being charged for the rape of a 13 year old girl
– once recorded losses of over $900m
– doesn’t pay tax because he’s smart
– uses charity donations to pay legal bills and buy gifts
– doesn’t give a shit to charity

You done fucked up, America. You’ve fucked up real good. You know it’s messed up when BBC News have some kind of help form on their site.

Watching the election as an outsider has been interesting. It’s not too long ago that voting for the black guy was considered the protest vote. People were angry with Bush, angry with the Republicans. People are always angry at something. If we could monetize anger, no one would need Trump. We would all be billionaires. Anyway, many times during the process I found myself wishing that Donald Trump would win. If only so that four years down the line, these same people are crying and blaming Trump for every miserable aspect of their lives. It’s kind of like how everyone turned on Nickelback (like they didn’t at least catch themselves singing along to ‘Rockstar’ once).

I was going to comment on the 3rd US Presidential debate but…


This is so much better. I’m just going to let his supporters convey the sheer lunacy of it all.

Introducing Fangirl #1 – Ben Carson with bonus irony.

Yes. People including YOU, Ben Carson. You’re an idiot.

An Open Letter To Trump Supporters…..


…and other ignorant, rude, racist and and stupid people.

Speaking of Trump, I read that Billy Bush has lawyered up. His lawyer claimed that Bush….

would not be able to challenge the bombastic billionaire during his commentary or he would have been out of a job.

image

I hear NBC may be gearing up to pay him $10 million dollars. Ridiculous.

In other news, Ben Carson is still a complete and utter shambolic excuse of a man. I have NO idea how he’s achieved what he has, but hey, he wouldn’t be the first smart man to lack basic intelligence. And he’s a pretty good puppet.

More and more women have made accusations of sexual assault against Trump. Trump, in true child-like, sniffing nose fashion, claimed that they’re ‘horrible, horrible liars’. I wonder what would make me more likely to believe them over him….hmm, could it be the video where HE BOASTS ABOUT DOING THESE THINGS BECAUSE HE’S A STAR AND THEY ‘LET HIM’? Oh, sorry. That’s just locker room talk. Disgusting.

In other other news, the UK can’t decide on whether they want a Hard Brexit or a Soft Brexit. This is despite the fact that only one of those is on the menu. Apparently, the EU are being difficult….uhm, no. It’s like someone saying they want to leave your birthday party because they hate you but can they have some cake first! It’s a bizarre stance to take when the UK are the ones with something to lose, but hey, what do I know?

Anyway, I’m just going to refer everyone back to the picture at the start of this post and sign off here.

Some observations from the 2nd US Presidential debate


Once again, I watched for the entertainment factor and once again, I was left more horrified than amused or entertained. I think most people’s general feeling when it ended was this:
