"And practically every thing Trump does, everything he accomplishes will make the Left howl like howler monkeys receiving ghost pepper enemas."

Something I found over at Ace of Spades.

Big Mike said...

Jupiter you S.O.B! I will have that image in my mind for the rest of my natural life, and a few years after.

I think Paul Krugman is mentally ill.

Regarding the pic, it looks like we (D.C.) will get through January with no more than about an inch of snow so far this season.

traditionalguy said...

Snow job.

I believe this blog hostess (AA) and her spouse (Meade) with their stellar reporting of the Anti-Walker protests in 2011, and the steady commitment to the free exchange of ideas on this blog, helped Wisconsin slowly move from blue to red, culminating in the unexpected Trump win by less than 1% in the Badger State.

That is all.

Will said...

Trump is insane. Article 4 of the 25th Amendment post haste. You Trumpists will never live down the fact that you put an insane man into the Office of the Presidency of the US.

Not hardly champ. Had I known it was going to be like this I not only would have voted for him, I'da put all of my employees in those red hats. I'da done the rally thing. Probably would'a dyed my body orange.

Speaking of champ's, Whatever happened to that Garage bitch?

donald said...

Erm, champs, no apostrophe.

Owen said...

What Bay Area Guy said. Thanks, Prof.

Madeleine Albright says she is going to be a Muslim. Please also buy the full burka when you do the transformation.

Double burka that shriveled shrew.

Albright is going for the virgins.

He doesn't seem insane to me, but lefties and psychiatry go way back and I am sure, given the power, you guys could find a pretext to lock him away, Soviet Union style.

Meanwhile you could ask yourself why you lost so many Democrats.

Theresa said...

Trump Supporters,

The bottom line is that you were always willing to believe the worst in Hillary and the best in Trump. Just admit it was never about fairness to you.

You bitched about her email server being a "threat" to national security, but are not only incurious about Trump's business & sexual entanglements with Russia; you openly fight to keep it from being investigated. Just admit it was never about national security to you.

You decried Hillary's speeches before Goldman Sachs and cheered Trump vow to "drain the swamp". But today cheer Trump hiring 3 Goldman Sachs executives to his cabinet and his defiant vow that conflict of interest laws don't apply to him. Just admit that it was never about ethics to you.

No proof of Hillary's innocence was ever enough for you, and no proof of Trump's corruption is ever believed by you. Just admit that it was never about justice to you.

You mocked Hillary's 40 year marriage while cheering Trump's 3 marriages & fondness for adultery & prostitutes. Just admit it was never about morals to you.

The election is over. You won by a quirk of our Republic despite losing by 3 million votes. We're not complaining and we accept the outcome. Congratulations.

But if we're going to live together as Americans the next four years we do ask a little honesty from you, because frankly none of us are buying your bullshit justifications for your Trump affection anymore.
Just admit it. You support Trump for reasons you're embarrassed to say out loud. Maybe they're racial. Maybe they're religious. Maybe they're homophobic. Maybe they're sexist.

But whatever the case, the fact that all the reasons you STATE are in fact ridiculous & hold no water as I've just laid out, we know your true reasons must be for the remaining darker ones that you lack the courage to admit to out loud.

I'm moving forward-and by that, I mean supporting anyone and anything to get this juvenile egomaniac out of the Oval Office. And we still outnumber you by millions. Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

rehajm said...

We're not complaining and we accept the outcome.

Yes you are and no you don't.

SJ said...

@Theresa,

I supported Trump because I didn't like the Clinton dynasty. And because I want a President who likes the United States of America, rather than one who wants to make apologies for America to the rest of the world.

sane_voter said...

Theresa,

Don't you have a Coffee Party rally to attend?

Tank said...

75 yesterday in eastern NC. I practiced my chipping.

AllenS said...

Theresa, thank for you the heart felt comment. May I suggest you immediately start supporting Keith Ellison for POTUS.

tim in vermont said...

Theresa, Since there is so much evidence for the worst in Hillary, you get 4 years now to ponder why you couldn't see it, there in plain sight.

sane_voter said...

Any body see that clip of Trump owning David Muir of ABC?

paraphrasing quotes:

Muir: "Could you hear that big Womens March crowd in the White House? Over a million people attended"

Trump: "There is a March for life rally in DC this Friday. The press never covers it and they have huge crowds"

Muir: "I don't want to compare crowd sizes anymore."

tim in vermont said...

I would love to see proof of Hillary's innocence, let's hear some. But after we rip it to shreds, you have to explain why we were wrong.

rhhardin said...

I mean supporting anyone and anything to get this juvenile egomaniac out of the Oval Office.

He's screwing with the soap opera news media, replacing their interest in their narrative with their interest in his narrative, which seems to them to be an easier and more maddening target for their idiot audience.

That gets the control of national debate out of the hands of soap opera women. The MSM becomes obviously ridiculous, unable to pretend any longer to be serious thought.

Watch what Trump does, not what the fake MSM battlespace is.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

Theresa-

Here are some reasons, some of which I have stated before, all of which are honest, non of which are dark:

1) The Supreme Court. Clinton vowed to pick someone who would rubber-stamp the government outlawing political speech, the most highly protected category of speech. They would obviously support Roe v. Wade, which has no constitutional support and thus violates the 10th amendment. I don't have great faith in Trump to pick Supreme Court Justices, but he could not possibly be worse than Clinton.

2) Media Bias. The vast majority of the press went all in for Clinton, constantly downplaying Clinton's problems, constantly overstating Trump's. The final straw for me was, two days before the election, headlines in most major news outlets claiming that Comey "cleared" Clinton based on the last round of emails. This was flat-out false, and should have been obviously false to anyone who paid attention to the email scandal.

Michael K said...

"No proof of Hillary's innocence was ever enough for you,"

That's because there is none and that is why you lost.

Yes, and support Ellison since you don't like "Maybe they're racial. Maybe they're religious. Maybe they're homophobic. Maybe they're sexist."

You can get all four.

Hold that thought and you can lose again next time.

Guildofcannonballs said...

I supported and support Trump because he is literally Hitler and I want to see what a zombie governs like.

Maybe Hitler learned the same stuff Gandolph learned in order to get to white from gray? How do you know one way or the other unless you make him POYUS, president of your United Statez?

Original Mike said...

"You bitched about her email server being a "threat" to national security, ..."

My bitch about her server was the underlying reason she set it up; tto hide her activities from the American people. She was Secretary of State. This was not acceptable.

Nothing like shoveling heavy wet snow in the morning to fill you with piss and vinegar.

tcrosse said...

I remember when Leftists were calling LBJ a madman. They may have been right.

traditionalguy said...

Talk about flipping Muir's MSM narrative that repeats over and over that Trump is a selfish narcissist to even care about how big HIS crowd was at HIS inauguration; Trump replied three ways that Trump was simply being loyal to recognize the forgotten Americans who voted him into office and then traveled to DC to celebrate their victory, but are once more being told by the Fake News MSM that they do not even exist.

Trump vows that he will never let the MSM ignore them again. His role is serving the American Middle Class that does indeed still exist despite the MSM and Obama's best efforts to disappear them.

MackNamera said...

Trump has now reversed himself on torture after saying he was convinced by General Mattis that torture doesn't work. Now Trump claims that someone told him torture works and he's back on board with the use of torture. The man is unstable, unsuited to the Presidency. We kept hearing how he would pivot to become more presidential obviously he can't, but is it too much to ask for a sane president? He's still tweeting like an man obsessed with his phone and Twitter.

Clyde said...

Theresa, there was never any "proof of Hillary's innocence," because she was guilty as hell. Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!

tcrosse said...

He's still tweeting like an man obsessed with his phone and Twitter
And he's opposed by thousands obsessed with their sex organs

Bay Area Guy said...

Hi Theresa,

I note in your comment you don't mention one, solitary, substantive issue. Typical of the Left, you avoid the issues, and try to impugn the motives of your opponents.

Trump has many personal flaws. However, I thought his tougher position on immigration policy, was preferable to Hillary's. That's one big reason I voted for him. Another was the list of SCOTUS candidates he made. We'll know about his pick next week. If he picks someone in the mold of Scalia, I will be very pleased. There are several other issues, too.

I'm sorry your party lost the Exevutive Branch, the House, Senate, Governor races, and State Legislatures. But at least you have California.

And which "Theresa" will ignore, and return to post the same shit over and over again, from the same account but under several different names.

Why do people waste their time responding to these Barbie-brained Soros-bots as if they they came here to do anything but post the talking-points they were issued this morning?

David Baker said...

I see a pattern: Trump is doing, while congress is (still) talking.

AprilApple said...

I hope the FBI is still investigating the corrupt slush fund that is the Clinton Foundation.

The real reason Hillary set up her private server - pay to play, secretly take in money from nations with piss-poor records on their treatment of women.

Collective left continue to ignore these FACTS.

AprilApple said...

btw- I don't think we should EVER stop talking about Clinton Corruption.

The democrats have a corruption problem, and they refuse to clean it up. Media big part.

Here's the first paragraph of an essay I've written about congress. It's a little long, but only long enough to get the main point across:
