Only the Best People

Tim Make has an amazing piece in NPR with a boatload of audio of Trump’s favorite legal goon, Michael Cohen. Lot of good stuff in there.

    Every single time I hear Cohen say “Mr. Trump” out loud I start laughing. He sounds like such a fucking ball less goon who is the dog on Saturday morning cartoons.

    @JPL: I’ve never owned a Benz or BMW, and two of the VWs I’ve owned were probably the worst cars I’ve ever had. And don’t get me started on the horribly designed (by BMW) Mini I used to drive. And although such a ban will likely never affect me directly — I’ll never own another German car — such a move profoundly offends me. Setting foreign policy based entirely on pique is absolutely disastrous.

    “If [companies] have a problem with being associated with the racist, sexist or homophobic comments of the people who are working for America First Policies… because they worry about what their clients or customers would say, then maybe they shouldn’t do it,” said Marge Baker, an executive vice president at People For The American Way, a progressive advocacy organization in Washington, D.C. “The dark money is such a problem because it allows you to be associated with it but not have any accountability.”

    Trump is pissing off world leaders in Europe, Asia, and North America, at least. If he hasn’t already, it’s only a matter of time before he also alienates leaders, friend and foe alike, in South America (aka MS-13), Africa (aka shithole countries), and Oz/NZ.

    Trump and the other goons in his administration can dish it out, but can’t take any push back.

    I also vaguely recall Trump in the past bragging that he deliberately lied to JT about some issue.

    Ah, CNN story from March.

    In a speech at a Republican fundraiser on Wednesday, President Trump revealed that he made some stuff up when talking with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

    Trump recalled how Trudeau claimed that the US had a trade surplus with Canada. ‘Wrong, Justin, you do,'” Trump recounted saying. “I didn’t even know. … I had no idea. I just said, ‘You’re wrong,’ You know why? Because we’re so stupid. … And I thought they were smart. I said, ‘You’re wrong, Justin.’ He said, ‘Nope, we have no trade deficit.’ I said, ‘Well, in that case, I feel differently,’ I said, ‘but I don’t believe it.'”

    “I didn’t even know…I had no idea.”

    So, Trump claiming that Canada is taking advantage is pure bullshit meant to keep idiot supporters excited. Meanwhile, the GOP leadership stands by while Trump alienates an ally just for shits and giggles.

    This is exactly it – it’s what he learned from his dad, Fred Trump. There are no deals where both sides come out ahead. It’s take or be taken. It’s I win, you lose. He (Fred) was horrendous and his abuse is a direct cause of DJT’s abusive impulses (because he never dealt with any of it in a healthy way…hell, he never had to).

    I’m surprised more anti-trumpers of all stripes – comedians, activists, the more brazen Dem candidates – don’t throw it in Trumpov’s face. Want him to stroke out? Remind him that no matter how many brown families he shatters at the border or however many p____s he grabs or however much grifter $$$ he rakes in from Rosneft or whatever, it’ll never be good enough.

    (While I understand the argument that some people use offensive words in a way devoid of the original misogynistic, etc, content, like the Brits/Aussies claim to, I think that for some words and phrases the original discriminatory intent is still close enough to the surface that we should respect the people who say they are hurt by the words, and refrain from using derogatory idioms revolving around genitalia, disability, or sexual practices.)

I was listening to “The World” when I was driving today. The had the Dutch woman who heads up the European Union’s trade organization…she said something to the effect, the US hasn’t been negotiating with them at all (like Ross said we have) they’ve just shown up and made demands. She jammed trump a bit, He said, “winning a trade war is easy” she said, I suppose you can look at it like that, but it it’s not easy because what happens here has a ripple effect all over the world,

    Speaking of only the best (barf) people…here’s the kind of thing that Trumpism is dragging out into the open: Congressional Candidate in Virginia Admits He’s a Pedophile

    He ain’t running as a Dem, is all I’m saying:

    Asked whether there was a “grain of truth” in his essay about father-daughter incest and another about raping his ex-wife repeatedly, he said yes, offering that plenty of women have rape fantasies.

    According to Larson’s campaign manifesto, his platform as a “quasi-neoreactionary libertarian” candidate includes protecting gun ownership rights, establishing free trade and protecting “benevolent white supremacy,” as well as legalizing incestuous marriage and child pornography.

    In the manifesto, Larson called Nazi leader Adolf Hitler a “white supremacist hero.” He urged Congress to repeal the Violence Against Women Act, adding, “We need to switch to a system that classifies women as property, initially of their fathers and later of their husbands.” He also showed sympathy for men who identify as involuntary celibates, or incels, suggesting it is unfair that they “are forced to pay taxes for schools, welfare, and other support for other men’s children.”

    This guy is about one hair away from being Dave Brat, so let’s be sure to focus our fire on…Dave Brat and the like. The ones who slip by with just enough normalcy to get elected.
    This pathetic worm will get what’s coming to him sooner or later. Brat…he’ll have to be run out of office first.

    Not that complicated. He was raised by a slumlord Klansman, spoiled, and shipped off to military school because he was such an asshole even Fred didn’t want him around.

    they’ve just shown up and made demands.

    To these morons that is negotiating.
    They don’t understand that the world is not the same as conservatives have perceived it for the last 75 yrs, that is that the USA! is so far out ahead that it owns every thing and everyone else. The morons aren’t negotiating in the understood sense of the word, they are, in an over privileged completely irrational way.

    There are foulmouthed Britons and Aussies who use “cunt” very freely, more so than most foulmouthed Americans. But the notion that that means the word is less offensive in those countries than in America strikes me as simply wrong.

    Just FYI. FemForce:

    …The first lady of the time, Mrs. Roosevelt, is the person who has intervened on their behalf. What happened? Mrs. Roosevelt was in her car during an outing, accompanied by Joan Wayne (in her civilians clothes). Their car was waylaid by the 5th columnists and in a matter of seconds the guards were shot down. The 5th columnist is a group of people who clandestinely undermine a larger group such as a nation from within, to help an external enemy (Nazi’s here). So Joan was the only person that can protect Mrs. Roosevelt. With her body invulnerable to bullets and her superhuman strength she quickly took care of all the attackers.

    Mrs. Roosevelt was immensely grateful for this act of bravery. She browbeat her husband, Franklin D. Roosevelt, into making Ms. Victory and her females cronies national heroes. The President has officially formed this group of women as an auxiliary force for the nation.Source

    I wonder if it was fear of spending hours at the DMV after he missed the expiration date was the reason why that guy in Ohio who was running for governor – Ed FitzGerald – didn’t have a drivers license for 10 years…

    Cheers,
