Hey Dotard, you picked the Greedy Old Pervert party, and your supposed to luv the 'free hand of the market'. And besides, Comcast is the only true high speed game in my town...thanks in large part to your party's mentality.
Twiddle de Dotard said:
Concast is known for its terrible service. On top of that they provide FAKE NEWS on MSDNC & @NBCNews. Drop them and go to a good provider!
Oh, wait, that's right the Orange Turd would rather be head of the worlds largest Mafia, kind of like Putin...but instead your just his bitch for some reason.

tRump was even replying to a 2017 tweet by that twerp Mike Huckabee. You'd think that with a global pandemic, an economic implosion and finally an awakening going on regarding police brutality and systemic racism that the president of the US would have better things to do than reply to a 3 year old tweet.

Well, it is primarily to scare Americans and show my disapproval of Trump. Yes, there is truth that I'm my mother's primary caretaker and I can't get it because if she got it, she'd probably die (not even 70 yet). But that is just a small thing because everything in my life is to show my disapproval of Trump... cause I'm jealous of all of his success.

The GOP should at least chip in for Trump Shrouds for any of the Tulsa orgy-goers who die this year because of their attendance. Wrap 'em in big MAGA sheets with that fat cheese-complexioned face on 'em. Let the image of Trump escort them to their great reward. "Donald sent me... Why the fuck is it so hot??"

Trump: And she asked me if I was in yet, and I said, of course I wasn't in yet. Women know when I'm in them, so clearly I wasn't in her yet.

Reporter: I was asking about the Chinese Tariffs.

The WH has just declared Saturday to be the first Junetard, commemorating the day Trump emancipated the Okies from face masks. And don't blame me for the un-PC language. 'Tard' and 'Okies' are now tweet-worthy terms of respect.

You are supposed to say 'it is just a joke', that pretty much covers anything.

So Trump is at a campaign rally, first in a long time, and spends a good chunk of it talking about a slippery slope (not the fallacy, but the death ramp at West Point) and drinking water with silk ties.

I like this highlight.

President Trump said:
Now he's standing there, big strong guy, and he's got these shoes but they're loaded with rubber on the bottom. Because I looked -- the first thing I did was I looked at his shoes and I looked at mine, very, very slippery.
Absolutely the most rubbery shoe ever! It could be a crime it has so much rubber? How can the General even walk, the friction must be yuge!

Rubber-loaded shoes.
In a dress uniform.
At West Point.
For graduation.
For a graduation ceremony with THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES (and the commesurate media presence) attending.
A general made sure to get obviously-enhanced-traction, kniwing he'd be pictured with BONESPURS on a slickified ramp.


Seriously, if you want to set this idiot up for embarrassments, give him a microphone.

Biden suggests police could shoot assailants 'in the leg instead of the heart'

“Instead of standing there and teaching a cop, when there’s an unarmed person coming at them with a knife or something, you shoot them in the leg instead of in the heart is a very different thing. There’s a lot of different things that could change,” Biden said in a meeting with community leaders at Bethel AME Church in Wilmington, Del.

An unarmed person with a knife.

Well, the higher hanging fruit would be repeating the falsehood of shooting the leg. But, yes, you did a good job at picking out the gaffe.

President Ellipsis said:
We did a great job on CoronaVirus, including the very early ban on China, Ventilator production, and Testing, which is by far the most, and best, in the World. We saved millions of U.S. lives.! Yet the Fake News refuses to acknowledge this in a positive way. But they do give....

....Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is with us in all ways, a very high 72% Approval Rating. So, if he is in charge along with V.P. etc., and with us doing all of these really good things, why doesn’t the Lamestream Media treat us as they should? Answer: Because they are Fake News!
People don't like me as much as Fauci. WAHHHHHHHH!!!

Trump campaign names Hogan Gidley as new press secretary

The Trump campaign has named Hogan Gidley as its new press secretary, replacing Kayleigh McEnany, who became the White House press secretary in April. Gidley is currently the principal deputy press secretary at the White House.


"Hogan Gidley has been at the President's side for three years and now he joins the fight to re-elect him," campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. "He is a talented advocate and defender of the President and his policies and is never afraid to go into battle with hostile reporters and television hosts. Hogan is a great addition to the team and makes us even stronger."

Was there a problem, Kayleigh?

Touche'

I liked the ending:
He turns being artless into an art form; he is a Picasso of pettiness; a Shakespeare of shit. His faults are fractal: even his flaws have flaws, and so on ad infinitum. God knows there have always been stupid people in the world, and plenty of nasty people too. But rarely has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so stupid. He makes Nixon look trustworthy and George W look smart. In fact, if Frankenstein decided to make a monster assembled entirely from human flaws – he would make a Trump.

And a remorseful Doctor Frankenstein would clutch out big clumpfuls of hair and scream in anguish: ‘My God… what… have… I… created?' If being a twat was a TV show, Trump would be the boxed set.

This is my pick for winning the internet today. I had no idea that Sacha Cohen could pull this off.

Sacha Baron Cohen is up to his old tricks. On Saturday, the Borat and Bruno actor crashed a far-right rally in Olympia, Washington, pretending to be a racist country singer who led a sing-along about injecting former president Barack Obama and Dr. Anthony Fauci with the “Wuhan Flu”.

The event was organized by a far-right militia group called the Washington Three Percenters. It seems Cohen had reached out to event organizers about serving as the musical entertainment, going as far to offer to cover the costs of the stage and sound system. The Three Percenters took him up on his offer, setting the stage for one truly epic prank.

Disguising himself in overalls and a fake beard, Cohen proceeded to sing a twangy country number about injecting liberals and scientists with the coronavirus. At various points throughout the song, Cohen encouraged the audience to sing along with him, and several individuals happily obliged.

Event organizers eventually realized that Cohen was trolling the rally and attempted to pull the plug on his equipment. Cohen’s security prevented them from doing so, however, allowing the comedian to continue unabashed for over eight minutes. After the audience was clued in on the prank, Cohen and his band exited the stage and escaped the grounds via a private ambulance positioned nearby.

But wait… apparently Cohen later returned, in a different disguise, to interview the event’s organizers about what went wrong.

It’s unclear whether Cohen’s prank was for an upcoming project, though it definitely falls in line with the material featured in his most recent project, Showtime’s Who Is America.





This post is by a city council member in Yelm, Washington. Earlier this afternoon, Sacha Baron Cohen crashed the event of Washington 3% – a right-wing group of armed insurrectionists and white supremacists – in Olympia.

I look forward to the video… pic.twitter.com/zilUA2zJQU

My favorite part of Sacha Baron Cohen infiltrating the militia rally was his coming right back in a second disguise to interview the organizers about what happened. The guys got some balls pic.twitter.com/K84FB8s9IG

The crowd seems to catch on a bit after singing along to the 'chop 'em up like the Saudis do'. That is noticed in a second video that is shared on YouTube, but it is definitely after the crowd, or some part of the crowd has made fools of themselves.

Trump believes that the Moops invaded Spain in the eighth century.

For once he's right... Moops; it could have been a typo...

Outline. In 711 Muslim forces invaded and in seven years conquered the Iberian peninsula. It became one of the great Muslim civilisations; reaching its summit with the Umayyad caliphate of Cordovain the tenth century. Muslim rule declined after that and ended in 1492 when Granada was conquered

...because the p is so close to the r on the keyboard, right?

You may have a point. After all, I've been riding in the moops. And my favorite TV actress was Agnes Moopehead, on Bewitched.

He's here all week folks! Good night, and don't drink and drive. Unless you're anti-mask, in which case exercise your LIBBERTEE!

This thread is slowing down. I think it's because of stupidity overload. Too many examples of stupidity as C19 sweeps the bible belt we have the deadly clash between reality and a fierce anti-science attitude.

The stupidity is too much to count.

Trump's new campaign logo.

View attachment 28441

To his defence the eagle is USA's national symbol. And was a long time before Nazi Germany became a thing. It's also a symbol used a lot in heraldry all over the west. There's only so many things you can do with an eagle in a symbol. If you want the eagle to hold up a sign, where else is it going to grip it? By the beak?

I prefer making fun of Trump for the idiot things he actually does. I see no need bending over backwards to see things that aren't there.

It's more the Son of Stupid (and he does seem to qualify well)...

It seems the dweeb tried to tie Bill Clinton to the Epstein mess, and stupidly forgot just how close his daddy was to the creep, with tons of pics.

https://www.businessinsider.com/eric-trump-tweet-clinton-epstein-connection-backfires-2020-7
People on social media reminded the Trump's of their own connections with the heiress — which included their own private jet ride — and replied to the tweet with several pictures of the real-estate mogul with his wife and first lady, Melania.

In a very real sense, "And I'm Eric!" Trump is a reflection of his dad's followers. He doesn't see the problem, even when he's staring right at it.

Granted, rich and famous people don't remember everyone they've taken a photo with. I even had an encounter with a refreshingly honest celebrity where I led with "you probably don't remember me" and she said "you're right...I don't."

But this is not that. Maxwell and Epstein weren't some random fan that asked for a photo with Trump. They were at the very least running in the same social circles and were apparently acquaintances if not friends. Trump's kids (maybe not Barron) certainly knew them personally.

As such, this tweet is appallingly stupid, but Trump supporters don't grasp the level of idiocy. They think Epstein and Maxwell weren't fellow travelers...just fans who happened to be in the same room when the photos were snapped.

It is getting hard to see what is stupid (Revolution and airports), what is too stupid that it becomes harmful (Trump: "the virus will go away, I hope'), and what is flat out trolling (all this Nazi and Covid-19 crap coming from Brad Parscale).

That's the deal here, Trump isn't the celebrity in that photo, Epstein would be.

So, is that a talk to text thing?

Trump: Siri... take a tweet
Siri: Oh fuck, not another one.
Trump: For the one hundredth time (1/100th), the reason we show so many Cases, compared to other countries that haven’t done nearly as well as we have, is that our TESTING.
Siri: You don't need to shout to get ALL CAPS.
Trump: Huh?
Siri: Forget it. You were bloviating...
Trump: Continuing, is much bigger and better. We have tested four, zero, comma, zero, zero, zero, comma, zero, zero, zero people...
Siri: You don't need to spell out the number.
Trump: What was that?
Siri: Nevermind.
Trump: Okay, finish it with: If we did two zero comma, zero, zero, zero, comma, zero, zero, zero, instead, Cases would be half, etc. NOT REPORTED! All caps on not reported.
Siri: Let me read that back to you.
Trump: Don't have time, Fox and Friends is on. I should probably call in. Call them Siri.
Siri: I ah... can't. The number is... unreachable?
Trump: Really?
Siri: No.
Trump: SEND!

Good point, that's probably a speech-to-text error. You have to watch it carefully or things like that will happen.

Here is a stupid.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/10/us/mississippi-coronavirus-legislature-trnd/index.html

(CNN)If you've been in contact with your state lawmaker in Mississippi, you may want to get a coronavirus test.
About one in six state lawmakers have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Dr. Thomas Dobbs of the Mississippi Health Department.
For weeks, politicians flouted mask recommendations inside the state Capitol. Twenty-six state legislators have now tested positive for Covid-19, including Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann and State House Speaker Philip Gunn. Neither man wore a mask at a bill signing at the governor's mansion last week.
