Ten-year-old nabisco offTM:

Here's something funny: when I was ten years old I had a vague admiration for Donald Trump and Lee Iacocca (both very feted at the time) and a downright intense love of Alex P. Keaton from Family Ties, who I didn't understand to be something of a joke. As such, despite having really liked Mondale -- having a woman as a running mate impressed me, probably because of the mother/father dynamic of it -- I was convinced that I wanted to be a Republican and a businessman or lawyer of some sort. In fact, I started a "company" with my friends Brian and Jeff -- we made board games, and hired Tony, the best breakdancer I have ever known, to do the art -- and I was constantly attempting to read the law and economics books in my father's library. Everyone seemed to think this was "cute," though I sort of wish someone had just explained politics to me. In either case, I got over it quickly and went back to wanting to be a writer.

What you lookin' at?
You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be?
You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say,
"That's the bad guy.
" So... what that make you? Good? You're not good.
You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.
So say good night to the bad guy!
Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you.
Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through! Better get outta his way!

You certainly don't, pal, 'cause the good news is - you're fired. The bad news is - you've got, all of you've got just one week to regain your jobs starting with tonight. Starting with tonight's sit. Oh? Have I got your attention now? Good. 'Cause we're adding a little something to this month's sales contest. As you all know, first prize is a Cadillac Eldorado. Anyone wanna see second prize? Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you're fired. Get the picture? You laughing now? You got leads. Mitch and Murray paid good money, get their names to sell them; you can't close the leads you're given, you can't close shit. You ARE shit! Hit the bricks, pal, and beat it 'cause you are going OUT!

And the one he got was sorta rotten and insane
Small hands (so sad!), a rust-hued clown

Part of my problem is that I have to do a lot of things myself. It takes so much time. Julio Iglesias is coming to Mar-a-Lago, but I have to call Julio, I have to have lunch with Julio. I have Pavarotti coming. Pavarotti doesn’t perform for anybody. He’s the highest-paid performer in the world. A million dollars a performance. The hardest guy to get. If I call him, he’ll do it—for a huge amount less. Why? Because they like me, they respect me, I don’t know.

bin laden did win, tbh

he got bush and the neocons to sliiiiightly overreact in Iraq and Afghanistan, which played a big hand in obama getting elected (he was one of the few candidates who could credibly say he was against iraq from the beginning), and then white americans got so mad about a black man being president that they elected trump, which made pretty much everyone mad

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 16 June 2021 23:39 (one week ago) link

not that he planned it out that way, of course. but the initial destabilizing event 9/11 led very directly to other destabilizing events, varnished the bravado of 80% of americans being for bush in the wake of the attack, freedom fries, all that bullshit. one big evil tragedy leads to another

the wingnuts are obsessing over use of "unindicted co-conspirators" in the indictments of rioters--claiming that they must all be undercover FBI agents (rather than rioters flipping on other rioters)

Muswell Hillbilly Elegy (President Keyes), Thursday, 17 June 2021 13:44 (one week ago) link

the wingnuts only know how 5 things work in the world and just hinge on key phrases that manipulative talking heads convince them are important.

words/phrases that no longer mean anything thanks to Trumpers wrecking them:

"fake news"
"voting irregularities"
"unindicted co-conspirators"
"Quid pro quo"
"Treason"
"coup"
"bigot"

I'll never forget how quickly Trump co-opted the phrase 'fake news' as a legitimate descriptor of his word vomit and just turned it into more word vomit. Dismantling the English language and cobbling together a verbal IED from the remains.

“Testing is killing me!” Trump reportedly told then-Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar during a phone call on March 18. Trump was yelling so loud that aides were said to have overheard every word of the conversation.

“I’m going to lose the election because of testing! What idiot had the federal government do testing?” Trump exclaimed.

“Uh, do you mean Jared?” Azar responded, according to the Post...

seriously, is anything at ALL going to happen to him before he's running for president in 2024 and is immune to prosecution again, according to DOJ policy 2340, regional prosecution jurisdiction order AJ#22 and what's known as "the unspoken gentlemen's code" that when you're running for office and you might win, you can't commit crimes?

Former President Donald Trump has amassed 10 times more campaign cash than he had four years ago, and he’s already resuming fundraising efforts ahead of intra-party clashes in the 2022 midterms and a potential 2024 presidential run.

Trump’s leadership PAC, Save America PAC, had $85 million in the bank through March, CNBC reported this week. That’s up from $31 million through the end of 2020. The group will officially file its fundraising and spending figures with the Federal Election Commission by April 15.

Bolstered by a constant stream of online donations from diehard supporters, Trump is in a stronger financial position than he was four years ago. Through the first three months of 2017, his campaign reported having about $8.4 million in the bank. Trump began fundraising for reelection shortly after taking office, giving him a significant head start in the 2020 race.

of course he'll run for office until he's dead. he finally found a business where people just throw money at him

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 22 June 2021 15:19 (three days ago) link

https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-asked-if-doj-fcc-could-punish-snl-after-mocking-report-2021-6

President Donald Trump asked advisors and lawyers to look into how "Saturday Night Live" and other late-night shows could be punished after they mocked him, The Daily Beast's Asawin Suebsaeng and Adam Rawnsley reported on Tuesday.

Two sources told the outlet that Trump had asked aides in 2019 to look at what the Federal Communications Commission, US courts, and the Department of Justice could do about "SNL" and other shows, like "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

in a slightly better alternate universe, instead of trump getting enraged by obama at the press dinner in 2011 (reminder: trump was enraged by obama because obama had the nerve to make a joke making light of how trump had led a global racist movement targeting obama's birth certificate) and becoming president and shitting all over this country's dinner, he could have instead been enraged by SNL making fun of him and instead taken over SNL and made the show even worse, somehow. but i suppose entertainment and politics are forever entwined now
