"Nothing but respect for MY President."

A Twitter meme — reported at The Daily Beast with the headline "A Woman Cleaned Trump’s Hollywood Star— And It Became A Brutal Meme" — turns out to be surprisingly sweet and lighthearted. Not brutal at all. Not even anti-Trump.

I'll bet they are very proud of their clever ripostes.

The left is always smarter than those rubes who vote for Trump. especially in Hollywood.

Makenna is a good woman.

If Anderson Pooper has a star, I hate to imagine how his fans would show their respect for his presidency.

Ken B said...

During the campaign a homeless woman was kicked and taunted as she lay motionless on the pavement after she protected Trump's star. Her tormentors seemed proud. She was just a deplorable.

Not sure why you're not seeing the anti-Trump element. All the follow-ups are mocking the first woman, ostensibly for the "MY" in her tweet but that's obviously just the excuse they latched onto to ridicule and hate her for being pro-Trump. And of course they reiterate that he's not their president.

I assume this is all in good fun, but we as individuals don't get to decide that so-and-so is or is not our President, and the "not my president" meme is dangerously illiberal. It needs to stop -- and it will the next time a Democrat is innaugurated. As Trump would say, "sad".

Does saying that the President of the United States is not your president constitute a verbal renunciation of citizenship?

Kevin said...

If the right had done this under Obama, they would all be labeled racist. That's how it works. Witty when they do it. Racist when others do it to them.

That's how we got Trump.

Kevin said...

Imagine how sexist this would be had Hillary won.

A brief test comment. I have been overseas helping to complete a merger and have a lot of catching up to do here and around the house. It appears as though I should probably be dusting instead of commenting. :-)

Glad to be back -- as of Sunday. Happy 4th to Althouse and the crew!

"Not my president"

No prob. But as Subtoi coined, "you guys are no longer our fellow countrymen" and shall be viewed accordingly. We will treat you as you treat President Trump. Enjoy.

Bob Matthews said...

I see people mocking someone whom they clearly view as a rube.

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

Oh there will be Trump idolatry. After all - as I've said many times, he is the right-wing Bill Clinton.

Be said...

Oh, the written language was neutral enough. The visual examples, well, hmm.

I saw one meme in the same vein on Twitter that was someone dusting off Mark David Chapman's star. (Shrug.)

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

We will treat you as you treat President Trump.

LOL ROFLMAO! What is he, your body double? Do you live in his skin, feel his pain? Is he the E.T to your Elliot? Too funny! You live through Trump and he lives to make you his.

What love and bonding you share... that no one else understands. And yet, someday the two of you will be together... somehow. United in a secret homosexual spirit-bond in an extra-dimensional realm where your kind can be together in the way that only fellow Trumplestiltskinses can truly appreciate and admire!

HAHAHAHA.

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

The left is always smarter than those rubes who vote for Trump.

No they're not. After all, his voters actually think he's going to revive their manual and service-sector jobs and wages, bring a 19th century energy industry back to life, team up with Putin and the Saudis to defeat Islam and make all criticism of him and climate denialism disappear forever!

HAHAHAHAHAHA! What geniuses!

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

Geez. I made a joke, Maidstreet. Are we not allowed to comment on the topic of the post now?

"Posts closed. Gone fishing - for 'Murica!" Get a grip and have a sense of humor much.

No comments allowed today. On account of it's an anti-American activity and all. Moar Patriotism less commenting!

ELC said...

Yes, they're mocking her. But I think tweeting that somebody is "MY president" when that somebody isn't actually anybody's president is pretty stupid.

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

I actually had lots of drinks with watermelon in them today. Which is patriotic because the red color in watermelon is like the red in red white and blue.

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

They asked me if I wanted a beer for the 4th. And I said, no. The watermelon drink sounds good enough.

It sure was.

Go 'Murica! Go watermelons!

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

Joking at Russian implants in Washington (and their enablers) is the most patriotic thing you can do.

As it was in the 1950s. See? Who says I'm not conservative!

Make America Russophobic again.

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

I'm proud to be a Russian, where at least I know I'm free!

traditionalguy said...

Mrs Trump was wearing nice decolletage at the speech to the Military Picnic. It reminded me of Bob Hope taking Raquel Welch with him to visit the Troops overseas at Christmas.

Trump is dumb like Bobe Hope.

rcocean said...

Sorry, but I fail to see the "cleverness" or "the humor". All I see is a dim witted attempt at mockery.

I used the think Liberals - whatever else they were - were full of political humor and wit. That seemed to have disappeared under Obama, who they wouldn't satirize because he was black, and it hasn't made a re-appearance.

Drago said...

How can you fail to see the cleverness?

Look, I'll try to summarize:
1) they are lefties
2) they wrote some things
3) Clever!

I hope this helped.

@fabi Welcome back. Ritmo has gotten worse, Inga is in absentia over the holiday, Chuck is in his usual lawyerly Trump bashing - who me? - practice. Ignoring them ,this is still a fun place to be and usually intellectually stimulating.

Howard said...

Melanoma was showing off her silicon bump to the Tiffany Security guy then ditched Dronald to get her bell chimed, sad.

pacwest said...

Thanking my lucky stars i was born an American. Independence Day is a great time to reflect on the blessings this country bestowed on us. Happy 4th TTR!

Fabi said...

Thank you Khesanh. I've read several older posts and concur with your summary -- not much has changed for the better -- but I did miss it!

Darrell said...

Melanoma

Howard is a cocksucker, I see.

Drago said...

Howard is a cocksucker, I see.

I don't know if Howard is, but if rumors are correct a certain very very recent ex-President is.

Achilles said...

Looks like someone stole TTRs binky. My 10 month old does the same thing when you take her binky.

Darrell said...

I don't know if Howard is

You don't have to suck cocks to be a cocksucker. Like Howard is.

Ralph L said...

In the copy cats, I don't see much cleaning going on.

Be said...

Melanoma. Cute.

I assume that you won your high school class's Best Humerus award for that.

By the way this rumor is disproved, proven false.

The proof: I told my mother about it, she hadn't heard it, didn't believe it and hasn't come back about it. Dead rumor, stinks like fish. Nothing in life would delight her Trump-detesting mind more than such a bonbon-Tiffany's no less, so there's no life in it, Howard, you may well believe me, If she is not the fish for that bait, there is no bait and no fish.

Dismiss it from your mind.

It's a kindness to you to say so because trafficking in it makes you look like dogmeat.

The Vault Dweller said...

We are increasingly living in a country where there are two different realities. I suspect the left's general moral inferiority complex is the explanation for why so many random people tried to mock a woman who simply held some measure of respect for the person who is her president.

"fail to see the cleverness or humor"

What I find most revealing is their lack of shame.

If my tribe BEAT a homeless woman who was protecting Hillary Clinton's "star", I would be too ashamed to go back there to pushback against another woman basically doing the same thing. I would not want it back in the news.

Worse for them, it darkens any mercy or charity I would throw the Left's way.

Sample Commenter said...

Well he as much as admitted that he chose women despite the "challenge" for political reasons. So it would not be surprising if the "rumors" are true. If he comes out, he will be a hero, and all of the manipulation and self loathing will be forgotten.

Let me google that for you.
