What are people reading at The Washington Post?

It's a diet designed to fuel the Trump freakout:



That's in the sidebar as I read the item that's ranked at #2. I'm amazed at how much space they gave to that Biden internet meme. Some of the examples are sort of yummy junk food, but how much of that stuff are you going to eat?

Ann, I hate most of this. But the fact that many our freaking out over Trump becoming president is not a bad thing. He is a worrisome character and it is even more worrisome that so many in this country would make him president.

Ann, come clean. Did you vote for him? Do you think he is fit to be president?

Gusty Winds said...

If anyone thought there would be some soul searching or media correction post election they were sorely mistaken. The coordinated propaganda is just beginning. However, they go into this post-election with their credibility shot.

Everyone is just getting revved up. I wouldn't expect a Trump administration to just sit there and take it. Time for some push back.

Press secretary is going to be a big job over the next four years.

When Trump was asked by the Wall Street Journal a couple of days ago if he regretted anything he said during the campaign, he replied "no, I won."

Does that bother you?

Is Trump going to Rea lease his 2016, 2017, and 2018 tax returns while he is president? I suspect he will not. Will that bother you?

I'd defend ape in high heels as freedom to insult. They wouldn't say it of Condeliza Rice, so it's something else. I think that Michelle has nothing interesting to say and pretends to be important in that regard.

As I have been pointing out for years, the hillbilly element is overrunning this country. It is the height of political correctness that truthfully labeling them as such causes them to scream about their victim hood.

But the hillbillies have gotten their hillbilly king as President. He will surely threaten the Republic as we have known it. But they now must own it.

Given who's doing the freaking out, it's helping to reassure me he may not be as bad as I predict. But then I remind myself he can be a bad guy even if the left says he is.

Why should he? There are plenty of entrenched lefties in the IRS (Lois Lerner was just one of the more brazen who made her malfeasance easily documented.) who would love to get Trump if they can.

Set an example and release yours. And the records of your psychiatric treatments while your at it.

A California-based network security company has accepted the resignation of their CEO of he threatened to kill President-elect Donald Trump. Matt Harrigan, the now FORMER CEO of PacketSled, went on a Facebook tirade on election night. The series of angry messages were part of a private thread that someone exposed through a series of screenshots. In those posts, Harrigan made quite clear the intent to kill Mr. Trump: “I’m going to kill the president. Elect.” “Bring it secret service.” “Getting a sniper rifle and perching myself where it counts. Find a bedroom in the whitehouse that suits you motherf***er.

And now he has a lot of free time!

Once, nothing you say bothers me, since you have been demonstrated to be completely clueless time after time after time.

But I wonder if it bothered you how many hundreds of millions Hillary made off of her and her husband's government jobs? But that was OK because she was a Democrat! Well, I expect Trump will put his money in a blind trust, and not open a "charitable foundation" to park his political operatives, and if he does abuse the presidency for personal gain, I will support his impeachment.

Do you think he is fit to be president?

Reports are coming out that Hillary got physical with Robby Mook and John Podesta on election night, and that her six o'clock toast turned into a bender. She was so fit to be President that she was drunk and crying uncontrollably. It's why she could address her supporters that night, and more than likely why the press conference the next day was delayed.

Now, there's a real story. CNN has it. And they are burying it.

Her doctors had to give her Woody Allen's hangover recipe from "Broadway Danny Rose".

Now...I'll give some sympathy...it's a big this to lose, especially when you had no idea it was coming. But that type of massive getting it wrong during her campaign's election strategy, certainly illustrates that she was unfit to be President.

If here strategy for the campaign was so far off, Trump is probably right. She got out played and outsmarted on the world stage as well.

tim in vermont said...

"Is Trump going to release his 2016, 2017, and 2018 tax returns while he is president? "

The election ended last week.

He's under constant audit, so what could possibly be there? Everybody already assumes they show him using the tax laws to maximum advantage, and he won anyway. The only surprise would be that he paid more than he should have. Would that have changed your vote,or anybody else's?

Quaestor said...

For an urbane sophisticate you have a remarkably limited vocabulary.

I'd question the grammar of unfit to be president.

The negation is absorbed into the adjective, where it no longer makes strict sense.

This is my favorite Washington Post story right now:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/washington-post-election-night-party_us_5829fcfbe4b0c4b63b0dad3f

Washington Post staffers are expressing concern to top business-side executives at the company after guests at an election night party at the paper’s headquarters were encouraged to remove napkins from a female server’s body.

“[The] napkin-wearing woman who was being disrobed by guests went beyond inappropriate to offensive to those those of us who resent seeing women continually being reduced to and offered as objects of men’s sexual desires,” read a Friday letter to Publisher Fred Ryan and Vice President for Communications & Events Kris Coratti.

Post Articles Editor Elizabeth Chang sent the letter on behalf of around 150 male and female staffers. The Huffington Post obtained a copy from a Post source.

The woman in question was wearing something underneath the napkin dress. But staffers were rankled by the concept, especially as misogyny and sexual harassment were major themes in the 2016 election.


Reminds me of the Kennedy/Dodd Waitress Sandwich.

Trump will not release his upcoming tax returns while he is president. Why should he? His hillbilly army thinks he is sticking it to the establishment.

This is but one small example of how Trump, with the giddy support of his supporters, will continue to define our political norms down.

Nonapod said...

I guess it indicates that people have retreated back to the safety of their bubbles. The NYT and WaPo will continue to offer succor to distressed coastal elites dealing with what must be trying times for them.

If there's one main thing this election has taught me it's that the easier it is to communicate with one another, the more isolated and balkanized we choose to become.

MayBee said...

Also, is anyone listening to Obama right now?

Wow he is droning on and on and on in Greece. I think he's moved onto his post-presidency, world wisdom leader fantasy.

bagoh20 said...

"As I have been pointing out for years, the hillbilly element is overrunning this country."

OK, so what should be done about that: forced reducation, martial law, concentration camps, firing squads, what?

Free elections obviously aren't gonna help you force your views on them.

jaydub said...

"Is Trump going to Rea lease (sic) his 2016, 2017, and 2018 tax returns while he is president? I suspect he will not. Will that bother you?"

Anyone who thinks the Obama-weaponized IRS has or would secretly give a Republican president a pass on illegal tax claims is clearly delusional. Besides, I thought the agreement was he would have no dealings with his businesses, as is proper. If he doesn't operate the business, but only draws income from it in one form or another, what's to report other than the income gained? He's already pledged to forego $1.6 million in presidential salary. Isn't that equivalent to over payment of taxes? What exactly is your point, other than the pettiness?

Clayton Hennesey said...

Is Trump going to Rea lease his 2016, 2017, and 2018 tax returns while he is president?

I'm surprised there's not been more talk about this.

Trump alone among all others declared fuck you, it's none of your business - and now it no longer is. This is how old precedents are overturned and new ones are set.

Releasing tax returns will now become as optional as releasing wedding night video tapes or recordings from the confessional.

JSD said...

The Post is a propaganda platform for the silicon valley pirates. Amazon, Google and Apple with their “double irish dutch sandwich” tax shelters are the biggest tax cheats in the world. When you’re worth 70 billion, buying the Post for $250 million could be good insurance against Madame Defarge and the deplorables. I am surprised that Google hasn’t bought the New York Times.

bagoh20 said...

"will continue to define our political norms down."

We may even slip down to where an openly corrupt seller of American influence and proven liar who enriched herself in office can become President through the lofty standard of vagina possession. Maybe that's why Trump grabs them - for the power. He's a power grabber.

Hopefully out of the gate he will respond to all the ones delayed or ignored by Obama and Hillary.

Why feed the troll?

buwaya puti said...

I am a non-hillbilly, as a foreigner can never be, but I rather like hillbillies. I find them charming.
I have a difficult time understanding the antipathy.

They are your threatened native breed, closest to your native customs and roots culture. In most countries the elite has an indulgent relationship with them, however much they screw them over in practical affairs. Thats why governments and elite institutions everywhere subsidize folkloric music and dance, promote nationalist memes and symbols. Heck, just check out Mexico over the border. The upper crust may privately sneer at the masses, but they are nothing if not respectfully indulgent in public and the mass media.

And so with most other countries.

The US is different in the overt class and cultural hostility towards its native masses. This it seems may be due to the intense parochialism of the US elite. They are an extremely narrow lot I find.

Michael K said...

Just like Hillary, my cousin and I had quite a celebratory drunken binge on election night.

We even shotgunned a beer when the networks called Wisconsin for Trump. Hadn't done that since college.

Agreed. It is hard to resist the temptation of stupidity like "make Clinton's e-mails look like peanuts. "

He's going to be the President, and I am absolutely hoping for the best for our country. He offered to make America great again, we the People (not me, one person) accepted the offer, and I'm holding him to the bargain. I'm happy to have a President that people are free to criticize and invigorated to criticize, and I'll oppose particular things he tries to do, but I'm going to criticize the immature bullshit of the critics too.

buwaya said...

"But don't you dare call us Hillbillies!"

And this is what I want to understand.
This sort of thing is NOT normal. Calling the volk names, defined as terms for the volk, for being the volk, is generally considered a faux pas at least, in the politics of most countries. The usual thing is to genuflect towards the volk. The usual thing is to claim to be of the volk. And this crosses cultural boundaries. It applies even in Turkey (where Erdogan for instance makes a big deal of his humble origins and presumes to represent the essential people of the land) and Iran. Notably it does NOT apply in many Arab countries where birth/ancestry status is a big thing even in popular culture.

I also understand that in this respect the US was normal, once upon a time. But it is not normal now. Why? Where did this come from? The best way to figure it out is to ask such as Once... I have had no luck with this over the last 20 years or so btw. There is a lack of introspective narration on such matters, which is also curious, and probably means something.

damikesc said...

Obama said it first. Don't like spiking the football? Then don't spike it. Otherwise, you're just whining.

Trump is justifying his election tactics as "the ends justifies the means." Obama said no such thing.

He was using it to stifle opposition. His attack dog Reid specifically said it as well.

Rick said...

It is still the norm, some people are just assholes. They get a tiny thrill from causing people they hate pain, and this one is so lacking intelligence and creativity he can't think of an effective method so he's left with this.

buwaya said...

"It is still the norm, some people are just assholes."

No, I don't think it is the norm; rather in a broad swathe of the US population it is absolutely not the norm. This is puzzling.

Well, of course they are assholes. However, I find it interesting and important to understand assholes and the uncreative also. They too have a worldview, and I like understanding that.

Rick said...

You're oversampling political people. Left wingers don't believe it anymore, their leaders concluded decades ago they're willing to abandon any commitment to decorum to win, a lesson they learned from old time radicals (ironically since those radicals were so unsuccessful their heirs now disavow them). Part of cult indoctrination is to grant the target a warm safe space, but the other part is to make all other spaces seem scary and hateful. Hence the activist training in bullying and inappropriate politicizing which takes advantage of the traditional goodwill and freedom in American culture. But only 5% or so of the population can be thus described. They just seem much more common because they're the ones always running their mouths & fingers.

It's actually quite easy to understand, buwaya. I'm a hillbilly. Literally. Come from a long line of Ulster Scot/Cherokee/African mutts whose primary modes of making a living were to mining, 'shining, and dirt farming. We're a happy people. We can't be told we should be unhappy and have the telling make us so. We can't be flattered about how happy we are, because that's just the way it is. We can't be denigrated and made to feel inferior because we're so damned happy and impervious to being talked out of it. Hillbillies are, therefore, uncontrollable. And that, my friend, is an absolutely unforgiveable sin to the Onces of the world. And there are lots of Onces in the world.

In their context they have the moral authority of being, not just poor (i.e., social justice guilt in their favor), not just authentic, but also very very numerous. So they have to be respected by the urban elite, at least overtly. This is normal.
