My New T-Shirt Came

I always hate the “Not my President” nonsense because that’s not how it works- yes, he is my President, unfortunately and god damnit. But I made an exception for this t-shirt.

The nice thing about this shirt is that even if Trump is impeached, it works for Pence, too! So its got good shelf life.

    I’ve never said the words, “President Trump” and I never will. He didn’t win the office, he stole it. He’s not fit to wear the title and I hope he’s booted out before his term goes a full four years.

    I see the Necronomicon was opened by Trump

    For Medicaid, the state-federal program that provides health care to low-income Americans, Trump’s budget plan would follow through on a bill passed by House Republicans to cut more than $800 billion over 10 years. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that this could cut off Medicaid benefits for about 10 million people over the next decade.

    A key element of the budget plan will be the assumption that huge tax cuts will result in an unprecedented level of economic growth. Trump recently unveiled the broad principles of what he has said will be the biggest in U.S. history, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told a Senate panel last week that these tax cuts would end up creating trillions of dollars in new revenue, something budget experts from both parties have disputed.

    The tax cuts would particularly benefit the wealthiest Americans, as Trump has proposing cutting the estate tax, capital gains and business tax rates.

    First time as tragedy, the second time as a worse tragedy with elements of farce.

    @donnah: I’m with you. Right after the election, a former co-worker tried her best to get me to say “MY” president and I wouldn’t. This seemed to be important to her to get me, a known Democrat in a sea of Republicans who probably caved and voted for the idiot Trump (they don’t seem to be owning up to it so much now), to say that DT was my President. I later emailed her and said DT was “the” President but was not and never would be “my” President.

    This right here. Barack Obama was my president, because I volunteered, donated, and voted for him. Hillary Clinton would have been my president, because I did the same for her.

    Trump may be the president-asterisk, but he’s not my president. I did everything I could to prevent him from being elected so, sorry, Trump voters, you don’t get to blame your gullibility on me or claim that I am somehow responsible for your stupidity. This one’s on you.

    Spike Lee: Donald Trump ‘is not my president’

    “He’s not my president. I call him Agent Orange, Lee told The Hollywood Reporter Sunday.

    The Do the Right Thing and Inside Man director, reacting to footage of Trump’s trip to the UAE, added: “There was some clip I saw yesterday of him dancing with the Saudis that was just ludicrous. Not only is he not a good president, he can’t dance either. (Laughs.) He could be impeached on his rhythm.”

    Lee—a supporter of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders in the election—also told The Hollywood Reporter that he believes Hillary Clinton lost because she didn’t campaign hard enough.

    “Hillary comes with entitlement. They thought they were entitled to this and despite what you might think, you gotta work,” he said. “If you’re chilling at Martha’s Vineyard, and think ‘It’s a done deal.’ But it wasn’t. There’s one thing you can learn from sports. To quote Yogi Berra: ‘It ain’t over ’til it’s over.’ They thought it was theirs. Shit don’t work like that.”

    Maybe I’m giving her undeserved credit, but isn’t touching between opposite sexes a no-no in most Arab countries? She might have been slapping his hand away for that reason. Not that she probably isn’t completely repulsed by Trump. I seem to remember a famous picture of Trump hand-in-hand with a Saudi prince, with the explanation that men hold hands in Arab countries frequently. It might be that Melania actually remembered the cultural taboo. Would straing credibility that the shitgibbpon would be aware of it, especially since the Saudis spent most of the visit pumping his ego.

    Texas to North Carolina: Hold my beer, bitches!

    Lawmakers used a tactic on Sunday night to circumvent the problem of time running out: a bathroom amendment was inserted into an otherwise unrelated bill about how schools plan for emergencies such as natural disasters and bomb threats.

    The state house gave final approval on Monday and the bill now goes to the senate – which is also Republican-dominated and expected to back it. The legislation will then head to the desk of the Republican governor, Greg Abbott, to be signed into law.

    The author of the amendment, Republican representative Chris Paddie, said it is “absolutely about child safety” and “about accommodating all kids”.

    Turkey’s Foreign Ministry lodged a formal protest Monday with the U.S. ambassador over “aggressive” actions by American security personnel during a visit to Washington last week by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that was marred by a violent clash between Turkish guards and protesters.

    The summoning of the ambassador, John Bass, sharply escalated a diplomatic rift between Turkey and the United States following the violence. Footage of the brawl was widely circulated on social media, prompting outrage in the United States, along with calls for the prosecution of the Turkish guards and even the expulsion of Turkey’s ambassador to Washington.

    Given what a mess Donny The Fuckup’s administration is, this feels like Turkey punching down.
