Emperor Baby Fists laments the lost glamour of this year’s Oscars, sad!

While I enjoyed parts of the Oscar ceremony this year – Viola Davis, Mahershala Ali and the candy drop – it’s no secret that this year’s Oscars seemed… off, somehow. There was a legitimate lack of glamour, and CB noted during the red carpet show: “It’s really bad, it’s like the whole nation is falling apart and so is the fashion.” I’m not going to say that the Oscars were total garbage because, hey, Moonlight totally won Best Picture and there is some justice in the world. But it was a strange, unglamorous and gaffe-heavy telecast.

But here’s the thing: as soon as Emperor Baby Fists starts trashing the Oscars, I will defend the telecast with my very last breath! After a politics-heavy opening monologue, Jimmy Kimmel used the Oscars platform to tweet-troll Donald Trump. The message of the night was “Trumpism will not stand” and/or “Trump is a thin-skinned idiot who can be baited by some tweets.” I really wish #MerylSaysHi had taken off, and I still believe Kimmel’s “u up?” tweet is one of the best trolls ever. Still, Baby Fists didn’t take the bait… on Twitter. He did take the bait during an interview with Breitbart though:

President Donald Trump previously said he’d be too busy hosting the annual governors’ ball to watch the Oscars on Sunday night — but now it looks like he couldn’t resist tuning in. On Monday, the president weighed in on Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway’s Best Picture flub in an interview with far-right news outlet Breitbart — former home to controversial chief strategist Steve Bannon — claiming the mixup happened because stars at the awards show were too “focused” on criticizing him.

“I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end,” Trump said, adding of the mistake, “It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn’t feel like a very glamorous evening. I’ve been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad.”

Global accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, in fact, has admitted responsibility for the mistake – saying the wrong envelope was handed to presenters.

[From People]

It’s like Easy D is taking credit for Envelope-gate? Like, Hollywood types were too busy bashing him personally and so the ghost of Idiocracy Future put a hex on the Oscar envelopes, I guess. That being said, Easy D isn’t pretending to not care about the Oscars, which just proves that he actually would love to be accepted by all of those Hollywood people. After all, he’s “been to the Oscars.” He’s Emperor Starf–ker, really. And sure, the Oscars weren’t all that glam this year. But maybe that’s because everyone is so f–king depressed that an unhinged madman has the nuclear launch codes. Try to be glamorous when all you can think about is “we’re all going to die when Trump gets provoked on Twitter.” Bigly.

Look, I found some photos from when Trump attended the Oscars! He went in 2011 and he made Helena Bonham Carter pose with him.

    This mistake had nothing to do with him but yeah, President Narcissist thinks it’s always all about him.

    They gave poor Warren Beatty the wrong envelope, that’s it.

    • Becky says:

      Exactly what I was gonna say – he’s a classic narcissist.

      And poor HBC on those pics.

    • Loopy says:

      I love when Warren said he wasn’t trying to be funny then he breaks into this joker laugh..Priceless.

    • Nicole says:

      I mean I lament the lost respect for the POTUS office. Sad

    • doofus says:

      apparently the dude giving out envelopes was too busy tweeting about the movie stars and got distracted.

      as one my FB friends, who happens to be a photographer who’s shot people like David Bowie and Dolly Parton, said: DO NOT GET STARSTRUCK. DO YOUR JOB. if you get starstruck, you can f*ck up.

      that is not verbatim, but it’s pretty close.

      • Mikasa says:

        I wonder if he’ll get fired.

      • Christin says:

        I suspected it was some type of newbie and/or social media distraction. It was a middle-aged partner (longtime employee) who had done the job for years! It’s considered a perk, and he and maybe his second suitcase carrier accomplice messed up such a simple task.

        Great PR for the accounting firm, right?

  2. Emily says:

    Random question: why is an accounting firm in charge of the Oscar envelopes?

    • Becky says:

      I assume because they process the votes and it needs to be confidential.

    • ncboudicca says:

      They handle the voting.

    • Loopy says:

      yeah I was wondering that too, maybe the tallying of the votes?

    • Snowflake says:

      Yeah, I was wondering that too. What does accounting have to do with this?

    • Nicole says:

      They process the votes

    • Shambles says:

      My question is: why are we still handling important things with envelopes in 2017? I know it looks fancy and classic and all, but there are better ways of doing this.

      • HK9 says:

        Because they know they’d get hacked. It’s happened to the emails at entertainment companies already. This year aside, it’s actually the safest way ’cause once that information’s out there’s no reason to watch or to go.

    • Christin says:

      They’ve done it for years. Well, maybe until this year.

      For a huge accounting firm, this probably isn’t the best reputational boost.

      • Lorann says:

        I hope that having the wrong envelope handed out doesn’t affect their accounting reputation…the numbers were right, but just the wrong envelope!

  3. Ashamed 2 b a Fl girl says:

    Of course, he would make it all about him.

  4. Lightpurple says:

    I lament the lost glamour of the White House. Sad.

    The accountant guy was too busy being starstruck to do his job, not immersed in politics. And given how so many in the business world are conservative, he may have been a Trump supporter. Careful there, Baby Fists. Now, can you focus on the shooting in Kansas that killed one and put two in the hospital? India is a tad annoyed and justifiably so. And the cemetery attacks? You know, the hate crimes you are inspiring?

    • Tiny Martian says:

      Exactly, Lightpurple. I also lament the lost dignity of the office of President of the United States. Very sad!!

    • Rachel says:

      On the news ticker this morning, there was a line about Trump inviting families of people killed by illegal aliens as his guests for his congressional address. I suggested he invite the families of people killed by US citizens. That number is exponentially larger…

    • nem says:

      you re awfully completly right.such sad time to live and watch

  5. trollontheloose says:

    he’s also been whining and accusing Obama of being behind the leaks and trying to undermine his “great work of presidency”. The guy is obsessed with Obama who is busy flipping the finger at politics and having his civil life back.

    • Shambles says:

      Saw that this morning.

      Obama must be really busy, what with being a secret Kenyan Muslim, the founder of ISIS, the person organizing all of the anti-trump protests and angry people at town halls, and the person behind all the leaks coming from the White House.

      *Rolls eyes back to 2008*

    • Lightpurple says:

      And Hillary. Hillary is out there in the forest plotting a coup.

      • trollontheloose says:

        if it’s not the Snowflakes paying protesters $1500 a week (hey where do i enroll) the media going after him, sad fake news or the multiple Massacres that never happened, him just discovering that Health care is a daunting task (“nobody knows how health care is complicated.Boy who knew! you have no idea) it’s blame game. So they want to repeal Obamacare but the plan is not in place yet because 45 just discovered how “it’s complicated”. Meaning “hey I didn’t read anything about how it works but it was my Horse of Troy to get you to elect me but in order to think about this I am going to Mar At Largo and play golf”. I applaud Obama for multitasking: Working his magik and influencing America more than ever. By the way did you guys saw Kellyanne Conway basically making herself ultra comfy at the Oval office while 45 meets with leaders of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) ? Insane. No class.

      • Rapunzel says:

        And HRC is succeeding apparently. DT says she “rigged” the Election of DNC chair Tom Perez.

        How does anyone buy this nonsense?

      • Kitten says:

        @ Rapunzel-Honestly, a lot of people on the left are perpetuating that bullshit as well. Nevermind the fact that Ellison and Perez are FRIENDS who had dinner the night before the election and who were wearing each other’s campaign buttons before the election results were in.

        Been arguing with my BF about this because he’s looking at all of this through his Bernie Bro glasses again. Pete Buttagieg, Keith Ellison, and Tom Perez all had EXTREMELY similar progressive platforms.

      • Lightpurple says:

        @Kitten, we need Keith Ellison exactly where he is, representing Minnesota in the House of Representatives.

      • Megan says:

        I assume Trump is deeply disappointed that Ellison was not elected chair. Going after Dems for electing a Muslim would have been his top message for the remainder of his presidency.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        It seems like the best possible outcome for the DNC for reasons “all of the above.” Ellison, Perez, Mayor Pete (I promise to learn to spell and say his name) all good, the first two more experienced. I think we’re going to see Ellison and Perez tied together as if they’re in a 3-legged race until any fuss dies down.

      • Megan says:

        I would have liked to see Ellison as chair of the DCCC. House Dems have had four disastrous elections in a row. They need leadership with a new perspective.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        The records of Ellison and Perez are very, very close — the same way Clinton and Sanders voted the same, what, 93% of the time? Both progressive, both lawyers, both organizers. And the Ellison deputy move is a good one, especially giving the DNC a Congressional liaison.

    • jwoolman says:

      I’m having a hard time figuring out how “Obama people” were responsible for leaking his bizarre phone calls especially with Australia, as President Tweeter is claiming. Did he have “Obama people” in the room with him?!?!?

      • Rapunzel says:

        If DT has “Obama people” it’s cause he’s so incompetent and unprepared he can’t hire his own people.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        I’ve read that one of the next preposterous and paranoiac things to come out of the White House is the idea that Obama is behind a “shadow government,” as in parliamentary democracies. When in fact he was just president for 8 years, a lot of civil service was in place working to implement his policies, and it’s all above-board.

        Maybe the accusations against Obama and Clinton are part of this myth. As well, he’s running out of people to blame for his problems.

        Meanwhile, Trump has the actual thinly staffed, incompetent “shadow government” given how unprepared he was to take the job.

  6. Shambles says:

    We are all Helena Bonham Carter in that first photo.

    Maybe everyone is just so f*cking exhausted with the Idiocracy we’re living in (the month of February, shortest of the year, has felt like an entire 365 days), that they’re too delirious to put together a great red carpet look or get basic things right like the winners of the awards and which people are dead and alive. I can’t blame em, honestly.

    • Esmom says:

      My thoughts about HBC, too. I’m also guessing he probably wanted to pose with someone more A list but she was the only person who was unfortunately not smart enough to steer clear and avoid any interaction or photos.

      Agree with your second paragraph, too. I’m exhausted and delirious and have a hard enough time making myself presentable for the grocery stores, let alone a glam event!

      • Dippit says:

        The American Psychiatric Association – or some such body – have reported a significant uptick in people expressing anxiety and depressive thoughts since November. Sorry I can’t find the link (it was on Twitter the other week).

        People feeling less inclined to engage in social activities and be put together is, at this time, a very real phenomenon – I guess celebs aren’t immune from it.

      • Giddy says:

        @Dippit, my doctor told me this and that requests for Xanax are through the roof!

      • jwoolman says:

        Yeah, the feeling of impending doom will do that to you. Wish I could say we’re overreacting. But we’re not. We could be in multiple wars any minute and if some patriot hasn’t taken appropriate steps to keep the toddler away from the nukes — big league problems around the world.

      • Lightpurple says:

        HBC was an Oscar nominee for Best Supporting Actress for The King’s Speech that year.

      • Esmom says:

        Lightpurple, True. And that actually might have been impressive to Trump. Not that I can imagine him watching a movie like that.

        I still tend to think he’s less needy about getting the “approval” of a British actress, talented as she is, as he is about wanting respect from American celebs. He’s just so shallow.

      • Megan says:

        @jwoolman Impending sense of doom is right. Thanks to his constant impolitic comments about the US military, I am adding military coup to my list fears about all the ways Trump is going to get us all killed!

    • Alexis says:

      She was looking like “I was told I was ‘too old’ to end up manhandled by this creep…”

  7. sarri says:

    Melania looks like an Oompa Loompa in these photos.

    • Megan says:

      Apparently a friend of Trump’s owns the company that makes the fake tanner he uses. I wonder if the friend is really a frenemy.

  8. detritus says:

    45 eat dry aged steak well done, with ketchup. I cannot respect the opinion of a person who does this.

    • LittlestRoman says:

      Well done with ketchup? Suddenly, I feel classier than I have ever felt in my life. Who knew?

    • Kitten says:

      LOL…ugh.
      He’s just trash underneath the orange lacquer and gold-plating, but I guess that’s why his supporters worship him.

      • detritus says:

        Haha, yes!
        This is just ripe for analogies.

        The steak itself is a perfect analogy. Came from money, burnt into a tasteless shell, and slathered with something that appeals to the lowest common denominator.

    • Lightpurple says:

      I have several relatives and friends who are chefs and they were dying over that yesterday.

      That’s a $54 piece of steak he had burned.

      • detritus says:

        I can’t remember the restaurant, but I just imagine the look of horror on the chefs at Mortons when the order for a 60 day dry aged steak, well done, add side of ketchup. The chefs I know would have been cussing about the travesty, but maybe super high end back end staff are used to this level of nonsense.

        These types of restaurants often don’t even give you salt at the table, because the chef knows the flavors etc etc pretention. They probably had to run out to the corner store to buy the ketchup, because they only had house made heirloom tomato compote.

        I die on all levels from this story, it just encapsulates so much.

      • jwoolman says:

        Aw, let him eat what he wants. That’s about the only thing that doesn’t bother me about the Trumpster. If he likes his meat well burned and drowning in ketchup, why not?

        Of course, when I was a kid, I wouldn’t eat meat that wasn’t well burned… I was happy to be eating mainly charcoal. Early signs of an incipient vegetarian.

      • detritus says:

        It’s more that he poses himself as a cultured man and does this, and I am a bitchy food snob looking for any reason to pick at him because he is horrible.
        I won’t hate on him for his physical short comings, but damned if I won’t hate on him for his poor, poor, taste.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      Fun Fact: Nixon ate cottage cheese with ketchup.

      I tried it – not bad! A little sweet and tangy. Like eating a dip, but for breakfast.

      • detritus says:

        Lol, I’m only judging you slight, and it’s mostly because the consistency of cottage cheese squicks me out. For this you get the rating of – slightly gross. Not delicious, but not as gross as the people who like peanut butter and eggs.
        Or as gross as the grown man who puts ketchup on a dry aged steak.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        Texture in food is such a personal thing!

        People like peanut butter and eggs, really?

        Doesn’t Trump realize that no amount of ketchup will moisturize his steak? Then again he doesn’t seem to realize that no amount of bronzer will make him look good.

      • detritus says:

        I don’t think Donny boy is introspective or reflective on much. His hair is testament to that lol

      • Cranberry says:

        That is disgusting. Don’t ever speak of this again, please. :-|

    • eggyweggs says:

      If you want well-done meat and you want ketchup, get a burger and do it in private where we don’t have to see you disrespecting meat like that. LOSER! SAD! This man has the palate of a spoiled child.

      • detritus says:

        Haha, at least he does ketchup. I know a grown man who refuses to eat tomato sauce on pasta. Because it was once a tomato.
        I also know a grown man who will only eat beige.
        So he has company.

    • Christin says:

      The real tidbit is that he chose the restaurant in his DC hotel to have said steak and ketchup.

      DC has great places to eat, but of course he’s going to one on his turf.

  9. Megan says:

    He is so freaking delusional and thin skinned. It’s terrifying.

    Apparently the person handing out the envelopes was tweeting throughout the ceremony. He had just tweeted a pic of Emma Stone before handing WB the wrong envelope.

  10. Ankhel says:

    That first photo of Helena Bonham Carter… “Oh bloody hell, his thumb is “slipping” upwards again!”

  11. t.fanty says:

    This isn’t today’s story. Today’s story is 299 republicans voting down the motion to force 45 to reveal his tax returns.

    • IlsaLund says:

      • Veronica says:

        While gutting every other government program. Can’t end badly for anyone, nope.

      • Kitten says:

        Deporting immigrants + privatizing prisons + reigniting the War on Marijuana = modern-day plantations.

        Every single EO he signs, every piece of legislation he puts forth, is all a means to further the economic interests of Big Corp at the expense of the public’s well-being and quality of life.

      • Giddy says:

        Last night Rachel Maddox was detailing all the Cabinet members etc. who have strong Russian connections. Like our new Secretary of Commerce who is the largest shareholder in the Bank of Cyprus that is known for laundering money for Russian oligarchs. Or the fact that one of those oligarchs bought a Florida mansion from DT for a profit of 60 million dollars. But Baby Fists has no Russian connections.

      • bleu_moon says:

        @Giddy- Speaking of money laundering, Trump’s Taj Mahal casino paid a $10 million fine, the highest ever, for money laundering in 2015. Wonder whose money he was laundering? Gosh, just a coincidence, I’m sure…

      • Lightpurple says:

        But none of that money for the military will actually go to the troops or the veterans, just the machinery.

      • Kitten says:

        @ LightPurple-EXACTLY. Lining the pockets of Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon etc.

      • Megan says:

        Wait, don’t we already have the largest military force, by a factor of like 7?

        I live in DC so, to some extent, I am resigned to the fact that the military is also a massive jobs program. If every single part for every single piece of equipment was built by organized American workers, then, sure, this plan would create high paid manufacturing jobs.

        The problem is, not all parts are, or ever will be, manufactured in the US. Unions are so weak workers have little chance of collectively bargaining for their share of the enormous profits defense contractors generate, and robots will get most of the jobs.

      • Shark Bait says:

        Always follow the money. That’s why I think Trump has been trying to discredit the media from the beginning (aside from the fact that they tell the truth about him and aren’t blowing sunshine up his ass). I think they know someone will crack open this whole thing. It will be the Watergate of our day, and Trump wants his insane followers to already doubt the story before it even hits. And we know today’s GOP won’t go after him.
        Keep it up Rachel Maddow!

      • jwoolman says:

        Megan – modern weapons programs aren’t really the job generators that people assume. They need scientists and engineers, who generally come from outside the community simply because they are relatively scarce. It’s not like in WWII with lots of assembly line workers. Automation is heavily utilized.

        The community may actually get less back for the tax base than is spent on infrastructure etc. to keep both military and non-military companies in town. I saw details many years ago showing that very few communities had any benefit at all, generally the weapons plants were likely to be a loss for them.

        Plus with a captive consumer, the weapons makers can easily double their price tags overnight with no one blinking. Congress is afraid to complain about military spending, no matter how foolish it is. Except for veterans benefits, no problem cutting those.

        Military spending is pretty much a dead end in more ways than one…. We already have a military budget bigger than everybody else’s combined. Reagan doubled the military budget with no increase in our safety and it’s been steadily climbing ever since. We actually become less safe with more military spending, partly because WMDs are dangerous at all stages from birth to death but also because a larger standing military just encourages the politicians to find ways to use it. Wars are quite expensive today but also the more our government invades and occupies and bombs other people, the less safe we all are. For some odd reason, people get angry when they lose friends and family and their homes that way, and a few decide to get even.

      • Kitten says:

        Megan-As you said, we already have the largest military expenditure in the world. This is the LAST thing that we need to be funneling money into, especially at the behest of the EPA and other programs that ultimately benefit the public far more.

        Right now it is estimated that 35% of our military machinery is outsourced to places like Taiwan and China and some EU countries. And the only reason it’s not more than that (because you KNOW the US loves cheap labor/goods) is due to pushback from many who believe that relying on foreign countries for raw materials, parts, etc poses a threat to our national security.

        This was NEVER about jobs. If the Trump’s administration was motivated solely by job creation then why aren’t we pursuing green energy, for instance? The LA Times recently did an article detailing Pyle’s push to stop federal involvement in Ivanpah, which is a 392-megawatt concentrated solar energy project that is delivering power to PG&E Corp. and Edison International.

        Meanwhile, the head of the EPA Pruitt is suing to stop any advancement of the Clean Power Plan while also doing the same regarding the Obama administration’s plans to curb methane releases from oil and gas drilling.

        NONE of these things are beneficial to the American public or to the environment. ALL come at great cost to our health and well-being. We’re not going to bring back coal jobs or create millions of jobs for the American public, we’re simply lining the pockets of Exxon, Shell etc.

        ETA: I know you weren’t really disagreeing with me, I’m just sharpening my argument for the Trumpsters ;)

      • Megan says:

        @jwoolman Defense contracting is a massive industry that is far more expansive than weapons manufacturing.

        Also, you seem to have missed my point entirely. I was not making an argument for more military spending, in fact, I was saying just the opposite.

    • Rapunzel says:

      Isn’t the Trump admin. saying this isn’t really a State of the Union?

      • swak says:

        TV Guide is listing it as a Presidential Address to Congress.

      • Betsy says:

        It’s not, technically. Because he’s only been “in office” (quotes because, come on. he’s not.) one month. It has a different name – joint something something?

        I was just listening to a “preview” of tonight on Pod Save America and the were saying the first State of the Union address doesn’t happen until the POTUS has had a full year in office.

    AND STILL NOT A WORD ABOUT ANTISEMETIC ATTACKS! Yes I’m screaming. Because headstones were toppled in Philly and the JCC near me, as well as dozens of others, has started receiving bomb threats.
    I’m so angry. He can open his fat, disgusting, racist hole to talk about the effing oscars blunder and somehow make it all about himself, but not ONE WORD about these attacks. So many families now living in fear. My friend’s son started wearing a kipper recently. It makes her scared for him. It makes her scared!!!!
    This president makes me sick and I will always remember this.

    • Kitten says:

      I know. Yet his supporters are STILL insisting that he’s not anti-Semitic because, Kushner and Netanyahu.

      I guess all the anti-Semitic attacks since he took office are just complete coincidence.

    • Giddy says:

      The scenes on last nights news of JCC children being evacuated because of bomb threats were heartbreaking. Thanks Trump.

    • Beth says:

      He doesn’t want to admit he was wrong about #fake news. If disgusting crimes like this happen, he should speak and admit it’s part of his job to control what’s going on, not ignore it

    • Lightpurple says:

      And the hate crime shooting in Kansas. India wants answers.

  20. Rapunzel says:

    And does anyone know if we have ambassadors again? US attorneys? Is he even filling jobs?

    • Lightpurple says:

      No.

    • Shambles says:

      But he’s still complaining about the slow confirmation of his cabinet picks, even though there are still 2,000 vacant positions in the White House that HE has yet to fill, and some of his picks (like his navy secretary) are dropping out of their own volition.

      • Megan says:

        One of the problems for Trump is that he lacks the kind of deep network president’s have coming into the office. These networks are built throughout their political career and they allow the president to assemble a variety of transition teams to identify, vet, and recruit for political positions. This is one of the many reasons why electing an “outsider” is a bad idea.

      • Esmom says:

        Shambles, it is a shambles, indeed.

        Megan, so true. Their cluelessness about so many things, plus the lack of network, is such a liability. Who knew government, like healthcare, would be so complicated! Dumbass Trump, dumbass supporters.

      • Megan says:

        @esmom health care is super easy … don’t get sick. There, I fixed it.

    • Abbess Tansy says:

      There are 2000 vacant positions to be filled?? OMFG, the sheer inefficiency and stupidity of this man…

  21. jwoolman says:

    Drinking game for President Tweeter’s address to Congress:

    Take a drink every time he tells a lie. If the pundits intending to dissect the speech afterward join in, it should be the most entertaining after-speech event ever.

    And the broadcasters could set up a little inset with a counter:

    ALTERNATIVE FACT #1
    ALTERNATIVE FACT #2

    Etc.

    • bleu_moon says:

      “Take a drink every time he tells a lie. ” I will die of alcohol poisoning.

      I say drink every time he mentions winning the election.
      Drink twice if he mentions “306 electoral votes.”

    • Lightpurple says:

      For every “believe me” take two shots.

  22. Beth says:

    It’s pretty sad that even celebrites pay more attention to politics than our “president “

  23. Lolo86lf says:

    Donald thinks the world revolves around him. He used the mix-up at the Oscars and made it about himself. What a self-centered man he is.
    He wants to beef up the army now. He wants the US to be ready for world war III that he is going to start. He must be the anti-christ from the book of revelations and he will get us all killed.

  24. Eric says:

    Anyone reading the site hillarybeattrump.org?
    Is has daily listings of what would have happened if HRC had won. It’s brilliant! They are trying to get a press pass to the WH in a petition!
    Apparently, the alt-right hates the site with a passion. All the better!

  25. Nancy says:

    The Oscars mean nothing to me anymore, self-congratulatory fashion show. Now to the topic at hand. Did king Joffrey even complete grade school. His vocabulary is so limited that it is very very embarrassing to read or listen to. If I see one more very very or sentence ending in an exclamation point, I’m going to….bust a vein or something of that nature. When George Bush is repulsed by someone, you know that person is a bad hombre. Who the hell talks like this. I frigging hate him. Have a good day everyone! Enjoy! God I loathe this person.

    • Kayleigh says:

      Right? I always thought GWB was horrible at speaking, then this guy rolled in…

    • Kitten says:

      LOL..yeah exactly Nancy.

      And GWB sounded incredibly articulate in his last interview. I’m like, did he get smarter or are we finally becoming accustomed to the sixth grad vocab of The Orange One?

      • Shambles says:

        Trump could make the Cookie Monster sound presidential.

        When W is calling you out, you know you’re f*cking up.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        And when you have the slightest shred of appreciation for something W said, you know the world is f*cked up.

      • Shark Bait says:

        The fact that Trump is making Dubs sound reasonable and articulate tells us everything.

      • jwoolman says:

        Dubya was surprising occasionally. Look at his post – 9/11 speech and compare it with Trump’s incendiary blatherings.

      • Esmom says:

        Kitten, funny, I was thinking the same thing. My guess is that he sounds more articulate because he’s not simultaneously trying to run the country. He’s had a lot of time to think about things and formulate words about them.

      • Christin says:

        At least Cookie Monster speaks in complete sentences. It would be a step up.

        “Me saw some fake news today. But what me really want is all the money (cookies) I can get from me new job.”

  26. BearcatLawyer says:

    So not looking forward to tomorrow when Cheeto Mussolini is allegedly signing yet another travel ban executive order. I have not gotten a full night’s sleep in weeks, and the phones in my office are ringing nonstop. But sure, lament the lack of glamour at the Oscars, Emperor Baby Fists…

    • Lightpurple says:

      A co-worker and her family are traveling to Europe next week. Her husband, who is not a US citizen, just decided to stay home because he fears trouble trying to get back in, even though he isn’t from anywhere near the parts of the world Trump is banning. This idiocy is wreaking so much havoc for so many people.

  27. robyn says:

    So-called president Trump is such a nasty petulant man. He should regret the tackiness, indecency and lies he brought into the WH. I lament that!

  28. Shark Bait says:

    I’m glad he has time to talk about the Oscars, that he claims to not care about and not watch, that his idiot deplorables bitched and moaned about and claimed to boycott, but no time to talk about the destruction of Jewish cemeteries, bomb threats called into Jewish schools and community centers, and the hate crime in Kansas.
    You know that his blind followers think that we are destroying the cemeteries and calling in the bomb threats just to make him look bad? Yup, just like no constituents of GOP congressmen are actually upset about the ACA repeal and they are all paid Soros plants.
    But keep going on about how thinking of your nasty orange ass caused the Oscar gaffe, ugh.

  29. Marley says:

    ” I’m not going to say that the Oscars were total garbage because, hey, Moonlight totally won Best Picture and there is some justice in the world. ‘

    I wonder how many of the people echoing that sentiment have actually seen it?

  30. Rapunzel says:

    And the father of that Navy Seal who died in the Yemen raid is demanding an investigation. But DT is just, “Obama started it.” And ” we got lots of info” even though they didn’t.

    Oh, and he claimed he hadn’t called Russia in 20 years…. Though he called them last month.
