Bigly Boy Donald Trump worked hard so he got to play with bigly trucks

I call these photos “BIGLY BOY LOVES BIGLY TRUCKS.” Emperor Baby Fists is so bigly and strong and he is such a Bigly Boy. Bigly Boy had such a hard day – he had to try to pass a bigly healthcare bill which would punish old people and sick people for being old and sick! He worked so hard to punish women for being sluts and getting pregnant. So Bigly Boy got a reward: he got to play with bigly trucks at the White House. Bigly Boy got to go vroom-vroom in the bigly trucks and he even got to honk the bigly horn!

So, yeah, that happened. And now I think I might need to change his name again. From Emperor Baby Fists to Easy D to Agent Orange and now to Bigly Boy. It’s all one and the same. Here are some other political stories going around:

The vote on Trumpcare was delayed. Bigly Boy was personally deal-making and pushing the legislation with Republican Congressmen and every time he tried to convince a representative to vote for the ever-changing bill, Bigly Boy ended up losing two more votes. Turns out, he’s a pretty sh-tty dealmaker. The Republicans look like idiots who couldn’t get the bill passed after they A) have control of every branch of government and B) have been bitching about Obamacare for seven g–damn years. Bigly Boy is trying to force a vote today, throwing in the ultimatum that if the House doesn’t vote to repeal this week, Obamacare will stay.

“Essential Health Benefits.” Part of Obamacare is that women are not punished financially for being of child-bearing age, or for actually giving birth to babies. Pregnancy care, natal care, mammograms, pap smears and more are considered Essential Health Benefits and preventative care. Yesterday, Senator Pat Roberts (Republican) made a “quip” about EHBs. When asked if he supported “scrapping Essential Health Benefits,” he snarked: “I wouldn’t want to lose my mammograms.” Ha, so funny Sen. Roberts. Jokes about women with breast cancer! He later apologized.

This Devin Nunes thing is so stupid. Nunes screwed the pooch on Wednesday afternoon when he raced to Bigly Boy to tell him exclusively that Bigly Boy should feel completely vindicated because Nunes’ secret source passed him some (classified?) information about how Trump was totally wiretapped, except not really, there was probably a FISA warrant out on someone and Trump spoke to that person. Now Nunes is saying oh right, maybe he doesn’t have hard evidence after all? Maybe he completely misrepresented everything?

Democrats to filibuster Gorsuch? Maybe. Chuck Schumer wants to filibuster Gorsuch. Sean Spicer threw a hissy fit about that during Thursday’s briefing. Ol’ Spicey had never, ever heard of the filibuster being used for such nefarious political purposes!

Last thing: reporters need to keep asking Spicey about Paul Manafort. Spicey keeps downgrading Manafort’s involvement in the Trump campaign at every single press briefing and it’s getting really ridiculous. Manafort was the chairman of the campaign!!!

    Days without being a global embarrassment: 0.

  2. Nicole says:

    Actual child as the leader. WTF
    Also loved that picture of all men deciding if women should get basic healthcare. We are so progressive yall

  3. Jenns says:

    That last picture is Trump’s presidency in a nutshell. He’s the driver, we’re the cargo and he’s taking us straight towards hell.

  4. Insomniac says:

    Someone on Twitter captioned that pic where he looks like he’s yelling “Looks like someone found out Furiosa made off with his best breeder wives.” I laughed for five minutes straight. Especially because I had Fury Road on at the time.

  5. grabbyhands says:

    Wait, was he really wearing a pin that said “I heart trucks”?

    This is cracking me up probably more than it should.

  6. Esmom says:

    That photo of Trump in the truck with his fists clenched, I have no words.

    What a day yesterday. I’m off work this week and instead of doing something relaxing or fun I just stuck like glue to the news all day. I was exhausted and zombie-like by the evening.

    I guess I can’t blame Nancy Pelosi for her “rookie error” comment but I sorta wish she’d just stay above the fray.

  7. original kay says:

    They clapped because he actually got his bigly fat ass up into the truck. God, what a view that was.
    I’ll never cleanse my mind’s eye.

  8. MunichGirl says:

    Seriously, he needs to go on a diet, he’s so fat. He’s gained so much weight since he moved into the WH.

  9. sarri says:

    Drumpf’s such a man-child, it’s embarrassing.

  10. SusanneToo says:

    Meanwhile, here’s the panel plotting your healthcare. Don’t you feel soothed?

  11. mrspanda says:

    Hahahaa I love ”Bigly boy loves bigly trucks” :) This is the most engaged and animated I’ve seen him during his entire ”presidency”.

  12. IlsaLund says:

    I think Lawrence O’Donnell described him accurately:

    MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell went after President Donald Trump on Thursday night for giving up so quickly on health care reform. Trump reportedly told Republicans in Congress that he was done negotiating and that if the bill didn’t pass on Friday, he’d leave Obamacare in place.

    “This is the laziest, most ignorant president in history,” O’Donnell said on “The Last Word.” “President Obama never once said something like this in the crusade to get that thing passed because he knew how to stay with it and get it passed.”

    • Nancy says:

      If at first you don’t succeed, quit. He has been in the crooked (I borrowed his word) business world so long, all he knows how to do is wheel and deal. This bill has to fail. The people who finally got insurance can’t have it ripped away by these thugs. These men have no souls. Keep throwing out positive vibes people, that this bill fails, it has to.

    • original kay says:

      We knew who he was, and now is supporters know. When it gets tough, he declares bankruptcy, gets loans from shady banks and refuses to pay people.

      This time, he is refusing to pay the US, in the form of healthcare. It still amazes me daily people did not make the connections. Critical thinking skills are lost on his supporters. They all need Sudoku.

      • Tiny Martian says:

        Yes. And don’t forget, he had his rich daddy to back him and to repeatedly bail him out whenever he screwed up, right up until he was in his 40′s. He’s a terrible businessman – or maybe “businesschild” would be more accurate!

    • Megan says:

      How is he “letting” Obamacare stay in place. It’s the law of the land. If they don’t vote, Congress is choosing to keep the law.

      As for Schumer filibustering Gorsuch, I’m not buying it. It’s all posturing while he figures out how to let a vote go through without enraging the base.

  13. Lightpurple says:

    That picture with the fists , we did not need to see his constipation face.

    Essential benefits – the maternity care is getting the most attention but there is so much more that this would allow insurance to drop and still call itself “healthcare.” Most importantly: ER, ambulatory or outpatient, and inpatient hospitalization. Basically anything involving a hospital. I had 3 of my 4 breast cancer surgeries and my chemo through ambulatory care – that wouldn’t be covered. Nor would my overnight stay for surgery or the surgery itself. Or the mammogram or ultrasound. Or the drugs. Or the weekly lab work I had during treatment and quarterly since. Or the PT I’ve had to have four times to help with the chronic pain.

    Mental health services could also be excluded.

    These people are evil.

  14. Giddy says:

    Spicer’s descriptions of how very limited Manafort’s role was are getting more and more ridiculous. Manafort was campaign chairman for five months and ran the convention, but supposedly Trump barely knew him. I expect Spicer to next claim that Manafort was just a stranger that Trump once stood next to at a urinal. Ewww, I just made myself a little sick.

  15. SusanneToo says:

    Just a few of the things trumpcare would not cover: hospitilization, maternity/newborn care, prescription drugs among other things.
    http://twitter.com/gregpak/status/844742578352328704

    POS Mulvaney is on CBS right now saying it is states’ responsibility to require insurers to cover those things. Question: What about states that don’t do that? Answer: change your state requirements.
    Easy to do when you’re suffering from a serious disease, A$$hole.

    • Kitten says:

      So it covers absolutely nothing, basically?

      • Megan says:

        The idea is that the law does not mandate coverage so you, as the consumer, can pick and choose what coverage you need. Rather than spreading the cost of certain types of coverage across the market, this allows insurance companies to discriminate based on age, gender, and pre-existing conditions.

        Who benefits from this? Old white men. Who is writing the law? Old white men. Go figure.

      • Kitten says:

        Thank you, Megan. Thanks again for all the info, guys. I f*cking hate the GOP for deliberately NOT making this bill transparent and easy for the American people to understand.

      • Lady D says:

        It’s a group called the Conservatives that are pushing Trump to totally gut healthcare coverage, right? I thought at first those guys were on the side of right, but they’re almost worse than the republicans.

      • SusanneToo says:

        @LadyD. They’re Republicans, just ultra-right. Many are Tea Partiers.

      • LA Elle says:

        Remember when the GOP complained about some of the bills during the Obama Administration being too long and complicated?

      • Esmom says:

        SusanneToo, yes. They are the people who mostly backed Ted Cruz and hated Trump but now, shockingly, are putting party above country. But also clashing a bit with the Bannon faction.

      • Lightpurple says:

        The problem is most people really don’t know what health care entails or the costs and how they are calculated. You break a leg, you go to the ER and you think it will all be fixed but there are so many different pieces involved in putting your leg back together – including stuff we really don’t think about the the hospital laundry and the heating bill and the gloves the workers wear. And the people voting on this know nothing either, probably didn’t read the Trumpcare bill and probably never read the ACA, even though they’ve had 7 years to read it. They just know the ACA must be bad because the GOP says so. They think Trumpcare covers pre-existing conditions because Ryan says so but it doesn’t because if your condition requires blood work for monitoring and the plan doesn’t cover laboratory services, you’ve been denied care. My sister is a policy manager for MassHealth. She screams whenever she sees Price or Ryan and I think she challenged Diane Black to a wrestling match.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Outpatient care (which is just about everything you go to a hospital for these days), mammograms, prostate exams, pap smears, throat cultures to test for strep, ER visits for broken bones or concussions or communicable diseases or gunshot wounds, physical therapy, and mental health services.

  16. Beth says:

    Time for this kid to stop playing around. Visiting his florida resort to golf every weekend and now playing with a truck. Grow up and do your job!

  17. PunkyMomma says:

    Wanna bet Bigly Boy wears pull-ups?

  18. RussianBlueCat says:

    So is this overhaul of healthcare supposed to make the United States into some sort of “survival of the fittest” society? I honestly do not understand how some politicians can be in favour of a healthcare system which hurts more people than it can help. This is like something Charles Dickens would have written about. Just cruel

    • Lightpurple says:

      And last night, Pete Sessions was complaining on the floor of the House about people complaining that they were going too fast because he spent 13 hours the day before, 3 of which were with Nancy Pelosi, and he thought that was more than enough time to spend on this.

      • RussianBlueCat says:

        If debating something that could affect the lives of millions of Americans is too tiring(or he was most likely bored) for Sessions. Then maybe he should retire and let someone who actually cares about people take his place. That goes for any politician who wants to rush this bill through without proper debate.

  19. Eric says:

    And all the new pieces of the DeathCare bill would still leave 24m off of healthcare. It’s like the Keystone Kops are in the GOP.

    Manafort has been downgraded to that “gentleman.” WHAT?

    Funny how Roger Stone double-lawyered up. Why would he do that?

    Waiting for more Russian dissidents to die. Emperor Zero’s crew must be scared s#itless because loose ends wind up dead in Putin’s world.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Ryan’s career may be collapsing. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving jerk.

    • Kitten says:

      I need to start doing meditation or something to deal with the murderous rage. I’m not even kidding. I have never in my life had these evil (yet wholly justifiable) thoughts about fellow humans.

      But are these people even human? They’re just a bunch of f*cking monsters.

      • PunkyMomma says:

        @Kitten – in all seriousness, my levels of rage against this willful, utter destruction of our country by this entire orange/republican sh*t show has cause my blood pressure to skyrocket. Every time I see Cheeto, his family, Ryan, that dong head head of HHS (who is a doctor, FFS!), Devin Nunes, et al (oh, I forgot the defrocked priest, Pence), I literally yell out “F*ck You!”

        I have NEVER felt such a need to wish ill upon someone.

      • SusanneToo says:

        I used to be a quiet, shy, retiring person. Now I channel Furiosa.

      • Kitten says:

        Same. It might sound silly but just knowing people share my rage is comforting. Because I don’t even feel like myself these days, PunkyMomma.

      • Megan says:

        @Kitten last night my husband and I were talking about how neither of us has ever felt such hate and rage before. It is a very uncomfortable feeling.

      • LA Elle says:

        I’ve been reading books about compassion and tolerance, and I’m surprised by how much it’s helping. I’m working my way through How to Be Compassionate by the Dalai Lama right now.

        I’ve also been writing to elected officials for doing the right thing and thanking them. It’s nice way to remember the good things.

      • HappyMom says:

        I get it. It’s so frustrating and scary.

      • Lady D says:

        I think you guys are amazing. You not only encouraged everyone to write, fax, or email their congressman and senators, you led by example, and it worked! I am in awe that your efforts countrywide managed to sink his healthcare bill and destroy his travel ban. You are living proof that speaking up and stepping forward works. Your Women’s March had the attention and participation of the world. If you can keep your blood pressure down and keep this pressure up, the senate will be democrat-dominated next year.
        The first comment on this thread about days without being a global embarrassment made me laugh and feel sorry for you at the same time. I wish you luck.

    • adastraperaspera says:

      They are bona fide sociopaths. Many, like Paul Ryan, are followers of Ayn Rand. I believe she is their true messiah. Ryan used her philosophy to craft his budgets and the health care bill. Read up on her kind of crazy and see how many other of these Repubs also laud her. The Mercer billionaire is a huge follower of Rand’s philosophy also. It is a philosophy that justifies the rise of selfish strongmen and the demise of “the weak.” Among other evils. Google “Paul Ryan and Ayn Rand” for more info.

  20. Juls says:

    My brain read this sentence as “And now I think I might need to change his diaper again.” And I spit out my coffee and re-read it slowly to see you wrote name, not diaper. Sorry, Kaiser.

  21. Abbess Tansy says:

    It makes me so sad and infuriated that these people who are supposed to represent our interests in government, take care of us, treat universal healthcare as an abstract concept and not as a human right. They want to take what should be the backbone and basic elements of care which cost nothing to cover, and deny even that to people. Just cruel. Our government representatives call themselves proud to be Americans, yet by their actions they clearly hate Americans. Greed, power, money, and control are the only words they understand. Just cruel.

    • Esmom says:

      It is cruel. And at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I’m appalled at his supporters for being ok with this. The lack of humanity and compassion among my fellow citizens is what might be killing me most right now. One Trump supporting woman I know has a son who has faced cancer four times in his short life. She’s very vocal about her Christian faith, too. I’m just floored that she can go along with this madness.

  22. Liz version 700 says:

    Sigh he doesn’t just talk like a 5 year old he acts like one too …

  23. Jodi says:

    I guess Roberts doesn’t know that men get breast cancer too. I hate all of them.

  24. Disco Dancer says:

    Awww look at Trumpy pig trying to be all
    Sexy and manly!!!!

  25. Jezza says:

    My brother did the exact same thing when he got into a big wheel at toys r us when he was 5. WHEN HE WAS 5!!!

  26. feebee says:

    And of course he cannot ever miss an opportunity to toot his (own) horn. God, he looked like an idiot screwing his face up and pretending to drive. Yeah, that’s what truck drivers look like when they’re driving though probably more at the start of a 12 hour shift, or maybe at the end when they’re fighting fatigue.

    I kind of liked seeing Nancy Pelosi give the rookie some advice on how to bring a bill to the floor. She was talking to Trump but it was really more or as applicable to Paul Ryan. He could not have screwed this up any harder if he tried. And let’s face it they really didn’t try that hard. Seven years of bitching then they take a whole two weeks to chuck something together that they then admit is more about taxes than healthcare? How lazy and cynical does one have to be?

    Essential Health Benefits – cut those and tell me what is left to insure? Sen Roberts was less joking about breast cancer than the disease these politicians seem to have which compels them to say stupid stuff to win “soundbite of the day” so it can be played 100x on cable news. He failed to note in his apology that men also get breast cancer.

    By the Devin Nunes thing, I’m thinking you mean the thing called Devin Nunes? What an absolute twat. Imagine if Eliot Ness was tipping off NYC mobsters… Lately everyday I’ve been saying a quick thank you to the universe for Adam Schiff. Hmmm, former asst US Attorney v career politician with Degree in Agriculture. Nunes is complicit in a cover up.

    Schemer’s filibuster move may or may not just be theatre but at this point it has to be done. Or as one commentator suggested the Democrats just don’t turn up with the explanation being they cannot in good conscience move forward while the Trump Administration is being investigated for Treason.

    Spicer can have his hissy fit, nothing new here. I know how Trump can sleep at night – but I really wonder how Spicer can. Has to be chemically induced surely, though god knows it must be exhausting lying and bubbling for answers all day,

  27. B n A fan says:

    What happened to the ultimate deal maker? The king has no clothes, his butt is showing. In the real world, DT was taking credit for everyone’s accomplishments and sticking his name on all the shiny objects, eg, buildings that others build. Now he was willing to stick his name Paul Ryan’s stupid health care bill but it backfired. He was calling himself the “closure”, he couldn’t close this. DT conman is a fraud now everyone can see for themselves, except his stubborn followers.

  28. Luca76 says:

    So happy this bill failed. Small victory but much needed!!!

  29. Dutch_Blue says:

    Trumpcare crashed and burned without even going to The House for a vote. This, of course, is wonderful news and comical considering Republicans were screaming for the last seven years that they were going to repeal and replace Obamacare. When they had they chance they failed epically. I swear a bunch of high schoolers taking U.S. Government could run the country better than this current administration.

  30. adastraperaspera says:

    Tr*mpcare fails! Now look for Paul Ryan to be pushed out of the speaker role and replaced with a true Tr*mp toady. It’s well documented that Bannon hates Ryan and has Br*etbart publishing articles about how weak he is. Sometimes I wonder if Tr*mp didn’t advocate for the healthcare repeal so early just to sink Ryan (Bannon was actually quoted as saying he wanted to see Ryan gone by spring). Everything involves some shady deal.
