On behalf of London, f**k Donald Trump


Much love & prayers to anyone who was caught up in the London Bridge attack on Saturday night. 💜❤

~

In the aftermath of the attack I was trying to keep up with everything and what did I see? Updates from Trump’s Twitter. Given that I was personally freaked out because London Bridge isn’t too far from me, I was wondering how someone who was there and looking for updates would feel when they saw the shit Trump was spewing.

Distasteful doesn’t even cover it.

First of all, what does his Travel Ban (thought it wasn’t a ban!) have to do with an attack halfway across the world? Two, we don’t know yet if this attack was carried out by British born people or not. Given that the majority of the terrorists who carried out attacks on US soil were homegrown, the Travel Ban won’t help much there either. 

Thirdly, what kind of world leader jumps off a tragedy that has only occurred to push through their isolationist and discriminatory agenda? 

One that’s got no fucking scruples.

Wow. Yes, that’s it. If we were armed, we’d all be okay. Wrong. How many people in America lose their lives to needless gun violence? Focus on your own shit before you start making suggestions. Again, classless. 

The Mayor (who just happens to be Muslim) was talking about the increased police presence. He was saying that there’s no reason to be alarmed, and that people should go on as normal. This is the kind of level headed response you expect from leaders. Not frothing at the mouth and tiny fingers on Twitter. 

People who reject political correctness are often people who want to be dickheads with no repercussion. Trump was all for it when Kathy Griffin tweeted that picture (and no I’m not defending that, just saying that it goes both ways). Oh, it’s a different matter when his kids are upset. What about the Muslim kids being bullied, the increased level of hate and intolerance in America? That’s okay, right, so long as we’re all singing Trump’s praises, fuck everyone else. 

I can only speak for myself, but I personally don’t need Trump’s blessings, or need his solidarity. He can go and fuck himself. 

That Girl Is On Fire


I will just jump right into it.

An all-natural treatment for women looking to rejuvenate and tighten their vagina is giving doctors serious cause for concern – ground-up wasp nests.

The Etsy retailer that Dr Gunter found selling the oak galls – Heritage Health Shop – claimed that they could improve sex lives and be used on cuts with a warning that the paste will hurt.

“Here’s a pro-tip, if something burns when you apply it to the vagina it is generally bad for the vagina,” Dr Gunter added.

You can read more about this here if you’re so inclined. I personally have nothing to add because I REFUSE. REFUUUUUUUUSE.  Absolutely refuse to believe that any woman would be this fucking stupid.  (more…)

He Ate The Best Chocolates


Hello snarklings!

Trump’s big boy trip threw up some more chance encounters. I think I read an article on USA Today that claimed that he had shown discipline on the trip and that the real drama would start as soon as he has access to FOX News again. Discipline? That’s like saying Tom is disciplined when he’s not chasing Jerry. But I admire their optimism.  (more…)

I’m back! Baaaack in the saddle again ~guitar riff~ ~headbang~ ~Tom Cruise-esque jump~

Anyway, let’s get down to it. I’ve missed a lot in my absence, but I’m just gonna cover what I’ve read in the past two days lol. Trump’s trip has sort of shoved all the other news to one side.  (more…)

Blech, I need to take a shower | today’s b***shit (16th May) 


So you know how news broke that Trump leaked important information to the Russians? And how his surrogates denied it all? One person claimed that they were in the room and it didn’t happen. 

Trump has news for y’all!

Honestly, it’s refreshing that Trump was like, ‘Fuck it, yeah, I did it, so what?’ instead of crying fake news. Probably because he knows the information is solid…

😂

Someone needs to put Trump on Twitter time out. 

You’ve Got Memo

Apparently, he asked Comey back in February to end the investigation into Russia/Michael Flynn because Flynn is a “good guy”.

Donald Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to end an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn during an Oval Office visit in February, the New York Times has reported.

“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” the President said to Mr Comey during that meeting, according to the memo. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

This is how the honest do business politics.

The Diary of Kellyanne Conway

Basically, she is all about the Benjamins because someone has uploaded a supercut of her criticising Trump for the very things he now pays her to defend.

– the lowdown –

On Monday’s show, Brzezinski said that when Conway appeared on “Morning Joe” during the campaign, she would praise Trump on air, then “the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off, and she would say ‘Blech, I need to take a shower,’ because she disliked her candidate so much.” Scarborough said that Conway suggested that she was taking the job for the money.

KC’s response:

The hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe have become virulent critics of the President and those close to him,” Conway said. “Ignoring insults and insinuations is a valuable skill. But when sentiments are attributed to me that are not true, it is necessary to respond.”

The notion that I am serving for ‘the money’ or a ‘paycheck’ is absurd. As campaign manager, I made a fraction of what other consultants have made on unsuccessful presidential campaigns,” Conway wrote. “Then I walked away from dozens of opportunities for millions or dollars, and instead walked into the White House. I would do it again.”

First of all, who was offering her millions of dollars? Girl, please. Secondly, she’s a liar. That’s basically it. Trump seems to surround himself with people who as morally corrupt as he is. 

Meanwhile in the UK…

Labour (opposition party) can’t seem to figure out what their benefits policy is. 

Labour’s benefit payments policy is in “chaos” this afternoon after the party struggled to agree if it would scrap the freeze on welfare.

Which is a shame because

The government faces outrage after it was accused of setting a target to turn down the vast majority of benefit appeals.

Critics branded the system a “sham” after the policy was released by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

The row involves Mandatory Reconsiderations (MRs) – internal reviews people must go through if their claims for welfare are rejected, before they can launch a full appeal.

MRs were already under fire because they are far less likely than full appeals to end in victory.

Now it’s been revealed staff have a performance measure that says 80% of decisions “are to be upheld” – in other words, MRs reject 80% of claims.

This is all stuff that most of us knew but it’s still disgusting. 

White Privilege

A budding heart surgeon studying at Oxford University who knifed her boyfriend during a violent row could avoid jail because of her “extraordinary” talent, a judge has said. Oxford Crown Court Judge Ian Pringle said that a custodial sentence, which would normally be meted out for such a crime, would prevent Lavinia Woodward from embarking on her chosen career – a sentence, which he said was, “too severe”. It was stated at the court, where the 24-year-old admitted to a charge of unlawful wounding, that she met her victim on Tinder before she launched into her attack on 30 September. The judge heard how she punched the man and swiped at him with a bread knife after drinking and taking drugs. The Cambridge-educated man was stabbed in the leg before she threw a laptop, glass and a jam jar at him at the iconic Christ Church College. Pringle said: “It seems to me that if this was a one-off, a complete one-off, to prevent this extraordinary able young lady from not following her long-held desire to enter the profession she wishes to, would be a sentence which would be too severe.

Who cares if she an aspiring heart surgeon? What kind of message does this send? Besides the obvious – privilege, blonde hair and blue eyes will get you everywhere. If only everyone was afforded such a chance…

Today’s bullshit (15th May)


I think this will by next to-be-abandoned blog series. There will be a Trump post this weekend probably, though. 

Anyway…

Theresa May thinks being disabled and having mental illness are the same thing – inconveniences.

A woman called Cathy, who said she had learning difficulties, tore into the Prime Minister on a walkabout in a market in Oxfordshire.

Cathy told Ms May of the harsh effect of losing her Disability Living Allowance, which was replaced by the new Personal Independence Payment (PIP).

“I can’t live on £100 a month. They just took it all away from me.”

Ms May tried to say that she was giving mental health more priority but Cathy interrupted to say: “I mean people in wheelchairs, and everybody, not just myself. For all of us!”

Cathy’s words most likely fell on deaf ears because…

Quizzed by The Independent last week, the Prime Minister refused to rule out making further cuts to disability benefits in the next Parliament, if she is returned to power.

Oh and if you think that’s bad, take a look at this stupid comment that was posted below the article

In many respects I feel sorry for this lady as she clearly cares but is very much mistaken if she thinks that the Labour party are going to do any better.

The Labour party will cripple the country and then not be able to fund her.

What she needs is work she can do, irrespective of disability, or mental impairment.

Where is this work going to come from? The sky? She has been assessed as being not fit to work. What employer is going to take her on when they’re barely hiring people who are able to work? They might guarantee disabled applicants an interview but don’t let that fool you. 

Not to mention the fact that it’s easy to say that without knowing her issues. People have committed suicide over losing their payments, they can’t afford to do anything, some of them are fucking housebound because the government is taking away their mobility scooters and wheelchairs. All so the government can save money without taxing the rich. 

Fuck that. 

Across the pond….
Donald Trump has plumbing issues

The Washington Post revealed that in a meeting with the Russian ambassador last week, Trump let slip some highly classified information. 

“This is code-word information,” one US official told the newspaper, a reference to one of the highest classification levels used by the American intelligence agencies. “[Trump] revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”The report on Monday evening said one the most concerning aspects of the slip, was that Mr Trump revealed the city in Isis territory where the US intelligence partner detected the threat. There were claims that Russia could use the information to undermine the US, or its ally.

Despite assuring us that he isn’t engaged in any nefarious activity with the Russians, Donald Trump decided that he liked his new friends so much that he has to share his great intel. 

Mr Trump was said to have boasted about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” Mr Trump reportedly said.

…is this a joke? This is not something to boast about. You are The President, not a plastic doll (no matter how much your complexion resembles one). You can’t make this shit up.

Not to worry, though. His surrogates have denied it. #FAKENEWS

“This story is false,” said Dina Powell, deputy national security adviser for strategy, who was in the meeting. “The president only discussed the common threats that both countries faced.”

Mr Trump’s National Security Advisor, Gen HR McMaster, also said the story was false.

Given that Trump is apparently planning to reboot his staff because he has ‘nothing to lose’, I fully expect more stuff to be leaked from those he culls.

Donald Trump is mulling a massive shake-up of his closest advisers at the White House after the firing of former FBI director James Comey.

Mr Trump is reportedly considering what has been described as a “huge reboot”, anonymous sources told Axios, which could see advisers such as Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, Counsel Don McGahn and Press Secretary Sean Spicer heading for the exit.

“The advice he’s getting is to go big — that he has nothing to lose,” the source said.

Meanwhile, Putin is sipping a cold one and laughing his head off. 

SIGH. 

Quartz have a helpful round up of all of Trump’s fuck ups: A list of the Trump administration’s security breaches so far

And this was only Monday. Good grief. 

We’re All Looking At The Wrong Set Of Facts. 


Oh dear.

In reply to the first tweet, what a dick. His surrogates don’t have the right accuracy because they’re being led by someone who has no idea what the fuck they’re doing. It’s like being a Ronald McDonald underling. One day he might want you to wear green socks and the next, he might want you to wear blue and you find out which one on the day after you’ve gotten dressed and arrived for work. 

So, is it any surprise that we get this:

FBI Director James Comey committed “atrocities” when investigating former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s emails, deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday.

Atrocities?

Well, damn. Wasn’t Trump telling it to the mountains when Comey was indirectly doing his bidding. Now he’s commited atrocities? Yeah, he won you guys the election. I’d say that’s a fucking atrocity.

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…)

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…)
