The Real World: Trump Administration, week 8 – more of the same shit


I missed last week’s post because I was so tired. This week is even worse but here I am. I’m somewhat out of the loop with regards to the US. The UK media actually started focusing on the mess the current government are doing and it’s been Brexit, Brexit, The Queen gave royal assent aka meaningless permission to invoke Article 50, Brexit, Brexit. I think most of us just want them to shut up. At the same time, it’s crazy that they basically admit that they have no idea what the fuck they’re doing. I might just do a post on it one of these days. (more…)

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…)

The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 1.


So, to sum up the first week of this reality shit show:

There’s a National America Done Fucked Up Day

Lies by Trump’s surrogates will no longer be known as lies but as ALTERNATIVE FACTS

now with wiki page lmao

…otherwise known as delusions.

Legitimate news is hereby known as fake news. (more…)
