Donald Trump got up bright & early to tweet about ‘Alex Baldwin’ & ‘dieing’

It wouldn’t be Oscar Weekend without Donald Trump throwing a massive tantrum about people not paying enough attention to him. The Curious Case of Diaper Bigly got up bright and early this morning and decided to get on Twitter. Oddly, I had the same morning – here in the mid-Atlantic region, we’re under a huge (bigly, if you will) wind advisory, and I’d be willing to bet that the sounds of the Winds of Change rattled Diaper Bigly around 4 am too. It’s really unsettling to wake up to the sound of hurricane-like wind, just FYI. Feeling restless, Diaper Bigly decided to go on Twitter and do some early morning tweets-and-deletes:

He really did misspell “Alec Baldwin” and “dying.” In case you’re wondering about what Bigly is referencing, The Hollywood Reporter released an interview with Alec Baldwin this week, and Baldwin was asked about his Trump impression on SNL. Baldwin said, in part: “Every time I do it now, it’s like agony. Agony. I can’t…. I’ll vote for Mitt Romney. I don’t care. Anybody over this guy. It doesn’t matter. We have to get rid of him.” Those comments barely made a blip because in the same interview, Baldwin was acting like an a–hole and lamenting how he’s friends with so many sexual predators and what about those poor guys? After Trump deleted that tweet, he (or his staff?) posted a revised tweet with correct spelling:

Darrell Hammond is like “I would like to be excluded from this narrative.” Seriously, it’s March 2nd, 2018, and the president of the United States woke up in a sh-tty mood because of the wind and he decided to Google himself, he came across the Alec Baldwin interview, and decided to send out some diss tweets. Meanwhile, Hope Hicks is leaving (as a broken shell of a woman), H.R. McMaster has one foot out the door, Jared and Ivanka are both being investigated for all of their shady f–king business deals, and everybody in the White House feels like they are dieing (Trumpspelling!).

Oh, and the New York Times reports this morning that Diaper Bigly has asked Chief of Staff John Kelly to remove Jared and Ivanka from their senior-advisor roles. SAD!

    Lmao. I was just reading about his tweets then I came here which is a lovely progression for me. Reading the depressing and absurd then off to Cbitch for the kind of ‘take’ I need to accompany my coffee. :D

  2. Shelley says:

    Thought it was so funny that he was telling Javanka to stay while trying to get rid of them behind their back. This sh*tshow is Shakespeare and Greek tragedy in one, with huge side of crazy. Never thought this would be America.

    • Esmom says:

      No kidding. Every day feels like a month in Biglyland.

      And “dieing?” Wow. Matthew Champion’s tweet about sums it up.

    • jwoolman says:

      Why exactly does his chief of staff have to tell Javanka to leave? He isn’t talking with his daughter and son-in-law any more? Why couldn’t The Donald just ask them to resign and get out of Dodge?

      • Swack says:

        He hasn’t fired anyone that has left. There has always been 2 stories everytime someone bigly leaves – they’ve been fired (always denied) or they left on their own. If they leave on their own he doesn’t look bad. Firing the amount of people who have left the WH makes him look like he doesn’t know what he is doing when hiring someone (and he doesn’t).

      • AnnaKist says:

        Hi, jwoolman. Kelly needs to do it because Dump is a poltroon. He’s a arse who is smiling lovingly at his daughter and sil while stabbing them in the back. Not that I have any sympathy for them – they should be locked up for being complicit. If true, this is good and bad for America.

      • Ankhel says:

        You all know what will happen now, right?

        Javanka will be charged with something, and Drumpf is going to claim they were not central to his campaign, and that he hardly ever talked to them. Ivanka who?

    • Darla says:

      I know. This is really something. If I weren’t so terrified all the time, it would be so entertaining. But it’s not.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      At first I though “Greek tragedy is right!” Except all the characters are so loathesome it’s more like Dallas set in the White House. And Big Oil is out to destroy every last fragment of the environment.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Yes, this is some King Lear sh*t!

  3. Katherine says:

    For a sec there, I thought he wrote ‘dieting’

  4. RBC says:

    The most fitting punishment for 45 if(when) he is found guilty of collusion or other crimes. Would not be prison time ,but to take away his fortune and deny access to cellphones, Twitter and McDonalds.

    • Chrissy says:

      And hairspray. No hairspray allowed. He’d feel more humiliated by having to show his baldness than answer for all the hateful damage he’s done to America.

    • Chanteloup says:

      I would be fine with him being in prison whilst having the shaved head, no Twitter, cellphones or McD’s Just sayin’ :-)

    from a great nation to a banana republic within a year.

    • marthe says:

      Please, respect bananas !

    • Millenial says:

      an insult to banana republics everywhere, unfortunately.

    • Tiffany says:

      A great nation for who. I mean, what we are seeing is what the people wanted. He has not changed and people voted for him.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      :: sobs ::

      The really scary thing is I think the tariff situation was the result of all of this internal drama. He’s regularly reported as wanting to “take action” and “change the story” when things get intense. I think the tariffs were a knee jerk reaction to change headlines away from Hope/Jared/Russia. The tariffs will have SERIOUS consequences, and it is terrifying to think he makes such bold moves on whims.

  6. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    The only thing worth talking about is in the last paragraph. What does it all mean that he is letting his favorite son and daughter are no longer senior advisors? Not that they were actually doing their jobs or were good at it. Does he think he is going to save them from being arrested or financial ruin? Too little too late. They are going down right along with him.

    I am looking forward to today’s info Dump and what Rachel and Lawrence have to say about it tonight.

    OT: They need to cancel Chris Hayes and just have Rachel or Lawrence do two hours worth of stories. Chris is not a good interviewer/speaker like Lawrence nor is he good enough at breaking things down into understandable bites like Rachel.

    Also, Alec Baldwin is a huge flaming puss filled POS. The only one who does not come off as a complete dbag in that family is Billy Baldwin.

    • Elkie says:

      So, does this mean that he couldn’t even tell his OWN daughter and son-in-law in person that he was letting them go?

      But he wants you to believe that he has the stones to run, unarmed, into a hail of gunfire…

      • lightpurple says:

        Even Orange Voldemort fears the Princess Nagini the Corrupt of the Most Sacred Horcruxed Vagina.

      • Aiobhan Targaryen says:

        Narcissistic sociopaths never do their own dirty work.

        The fact that no one brought up the fact that he had 5 deferments and played that Howard Stern interview where he bragged about not going to Vietnam to his face his is frustrating to say the least.

      • jwoolman says:

        Andrea – my brother is a Vietnam vet also, but only because he got a bad lottery number. Trump says he got a good lottery number, but it seems he wanted to make sure he didn’t get caught up in it. My mother wanted a recount because of my brother’s flat feet….

        My brother actually was found to have something wrong with his back when examined after a jeep accident in Vietnam and the doc said that if they had discovered that before induction, they wouldn’t have taken him. Brother of course asked if he could get out of it now, but the doc laughed and said no, once you’re in, it’s harder to get out….

        Anyway, most guys there didn’t want to be there. And most people didn’t go to Vietnam anyway, so it makes no sense to make going to Vietnam some kind of test of patriotism. At least 80% came back telling their friends and family it was a stupid war, and by the end of it half the men ordered to appear for induction just didn’t show up. Democracy in action, in my opinion, and definitely an act of patriotism to refuse to participate in a war you think is stupid and/or immoral.

        So I don’t mind at all if Trump or anyone managed to find a way to not go to Vietnam. I just mind that he isn’t brave enough to just say that he didn’t believe it was a good war and that it certainly wasn’t worth getting killed or crippled for, and nobody should have been drafted because no government has the right to compel anybody to risk life and limb or to go out and kill a bunch of strangers. The draft is just a shortcut when they know they can’t persuade people that a war is worth fighting.

        If it were up to me, the minimum draft age would have been 35 with no maximum, and everybody in Congress and the White House would have been in the front of the line for induction. No exceptions for them. You vote for it or you order it, then you have to fight it.

    • Lilith says:

      Trump isn’t trying to “protect” anyone but himself. I don’t believe he has the capacity to show empathy to another being.

      The idiot son and daughter have lost their standing because even he, with his addled mind, can see that they have become liabilities.

      • Andrea says:

        The scary thing I find is how many people including my own father seem to be not bothered by a narcissist. PLUS, my father squawked so loudly about George W Bush and Clinton not going to Vietnam but seemed unbothered by Trump’s 5 deferments because he hated Hillary that much. I don’t understand this thinking at all. My father is a Vietnam war veteran.

  7. Shappalled says:

    I thought Baldwin’s impersonation was pretty weak. His voice sounded nothing like Trump’s.

    • Beth says:

      I used to love Baldwins impersonation until I saw the guy who plays Trump on Comedy Centrals The Presidents Show. That guy is incredibly perfect

    • Esmom says:

      Eh, with SNL it’s often more about the content of the sketch than the actual impersonation although they have had some pretty good presidential impersonations over the years.

      • AnnaKist says:

        So true, Esmom. We had a wonderful duo here – the late, brilliant John Clarke and his partner Brian Dawe. Clarke always played the politician interviewed by Dawe, but he never “impersonated” any of them; no costumes, no special makeup, no “similar” voices, nothing. It was all about his brilliant writing and delivery. It was satire at its very best.

    • Leducduswaz says:

      It wasn’t just the voice, it was also the mannerisms and general demeanor. I’d venture so far as to say the entire impression was toothless and half-hearted. As much as Trump deserves to be mocked, we, the audience, deserve a performer who actually wants to be there and not just some jaded over-the-hiller who’s only there to cash a check.

      • Jessica says:

        Uh, doubt that Alec is doing it for the money.

      • jwoolman says:

        Baldwin has been doing it cheap. Maybe even at scale.

      • Esmom says:

        I disagree. I think Baldwin’s Trump got his persona across just fine, and all the better for it being just the broad strokes of the scumbag blowhard Trump is. Trump and his massive ego doesn’t deserve someone studying every nuance to get it exactly right.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @Esmom
        Who would want to spend that much time studying him? He doesn’t bother me in the role. 45 is so over the top just the basics are enough for me.

  8. Chef Grace says:

    I guess we now know, it was Hope who fed the hamburgler in chief his bed burgers.
    And the only wind that fool is hearing is in his empty head. He should be use to that sound ;)
    I do hope this lot is falling. For the sake of us all.

    • Anastasia says:

      And the wind caused by his farting, which has to be YUGE because of all the grody shit he eats.

    • Sadezilla says:

      Did you guys see the Hope Hicks segment on Weekend Update? I laugh/cried at “Donald slorngry,” (sleepy/horny/angry) and will never be able to erase it from my memory. 🤢

  9. Lucy2 says:

    He’s just so very stupid.

    • Goldengirllover34 says:

      Hahahaha i laughed at this because it’s the only thing that can be said.

      I’m not even phased anymore. Maybe because I’m black and figure America did this to itself bc it didn’t want me and my kids to have some pie. Or maybe being in NYC, I feel a bit removed. Or maybe because I’m still on a black panther high and no one is bothering me since I’ll be going to Wakanda. Who knows.

      • Patty says:

        BOOM!!

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Sending love to you and your kids. It makes me so sad/enraged that our country has made our fellow citizens feel unwanted. I wish my vote mattered as much as those in low populated states.

  10. LittleWing says:

    Every morning I wake up and he’s still alive. It’s awful.

    • Dita von Katzhausen says:

      I feel ya. I saw the flag on half staff the other day (it was for Parkland :( ) and had hoped I had missed something,…

  11. grabbyhands says:

    Hope Hicks may be worried about legal bills right now, but she’s far from a broken shell of a woman. I have no doubt that she is fielding plenty of offers for books and appearances on Fox News. Unfortunately, I don’t think her face is going anywhere soon.

    More interesting is him supposedly asking Kelly to remove Jared and his daughter-wife. I’ll believe that when I see it. Kelly is on his own shaky ground right now-I can’t see 45 asking him to get rid of the one person he expects to stand by him right to the bitter end.

    • jwoolman says:

      I suspect Hope is going to be keeping a low profile with her parents for a while, she even said something about wanting to spend time with family. She is likely in serious trouble and doing tv appearances may not be the smartest move right now. Her parents may be giving her advice on that.

      Omarosa is doing the rounds of tv shows, but she’s kind of an idiot. Also Omarosa may not be in the same kind of trouble as Hope.

      • Betsy says:

        I agree. There’s almost no way that Hicks isn’t in serious trouble unless she plead out (pled? pleaded? let’s go with “made a deal”). And maybe she did make a deal. Perhaps her parents talked to their adult daughter and finally got through to her. She just reminds me of a child for some reason.

      • magnoliarose says:

        She is in deep trouble according to the legal experts giving their opinions in the media. She’s not walking away free and easy.

      • Jaded says:

        I think Hope was flipped and agree that she’ll have to keep a very low profile for the foreseeable future. She’ll hunker down with her family who must be beside themselves with worry that she got involved with that lot of grifters.

      • Swack says:

        She didn’t show up to work yesterday and today is heading out of town. So, yep, keeping a low profile.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        (Betsy, I read that the term is “pleaded”. It sounds wrong! I heard a lawyer discussing the term in regards to Trump tweets. There was a tweet that Trump’s lawyer said he wrote for Trump, but they thought that was a lie, because the lawyer would know correct term is “pleaded”, when the tweet used “pled”.)

        https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/12/looking-for-the-linguistic-smoking-gun-in-a-trump-tweet/547361/

      • jwoolman says:

        Tiffany – I think in formal docs they would say pleaded, but I’ve definitely heard real lawyers say pled in ordinary language when talking with non-lawyers. So I wouldn’t worry about the distinction myself. It may be one of those things that used to be one way and now is another, but people revert to the old way periodically except when writing formally.

    • Swack says:

      Would be the perfect reason to let Kelly go – getting rid of Javanka.

    • Imqrious2 says:

      Doesn’t help that Kelly stated on camera (about his current job): “I was perfectly happy ats NSA, God must’ve decided to punish me.” He was joking…sure Jan lol

    • Korra says:

      But being that public-facing is not her MO. I can see her letting the heat on her blow over and waiting a few years before releasing a tell-all book. However, I can’t see her doing a TV gig – she is not a dynamic personality and she apparently hates the spotlight.

      Additionally, she is in legal hot water right now. There are rumors that she kept a diary during the campaign and during her WH tenure. The rumor is that this attracted the attention of a few publishing houses for a tell-all deal, but if this is true, that means it will handed over as evidence as part of Mueller’s investigation. And if tried doing public appearances, anything she said on TV will just continue to factor into Mueller’s investigation. She may be naive and in over heard, but I think she is beginning to wise up now.

    • Veronica says:

      Seriously, I don’t know where this “broken sparrow” characterization came from. She’s 27. More than old enough to have ambition and follow through on it. She knew exactly what she was doing going into that White House. It just didn’t pay off the way she thought it would. The rich never really lose, though.

  12. wood dragon says:

    These nasty, dangerous winds we are hunkering under are also keeping President Baby Fists from flying down to Florida, unless he sulked out last night, so he’s probably climbing walls right now. The only place he can go to to soak in sycophants is his overrated hotel.

    • lightpurple says:

      He and Pence had, to quote from twitter: “good (great) meeting in the Oval Office tonight with the NRA!” so he didn’t escape the storm. NRA also quickly tweeted that they pretty much own him.

      • Esmom says:

        Nice (depressing).

      • jwoolman says:

        Well, the NRA owns $30 million of him at least. That’s what they donated to his campaign.

        Mueller apparently is looking closely at the Russian bank guy (Putin’s bud) who is an enthusiastic lifetime member of the NRA and goes to all the conventions and says he knows Trump through the NRA. The guy shares love of tweeting with Trump for sure. So now those yuuuuge numbers of tweets are being translated into English….

        It’s looking more and more likely that the NRA was a conduit for illegal foreign funding of the Trump campaign. Their political donations were way up while their membership was dropping.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @jwoolman
        Does this mean they are probably in trouble too? I didn’t hear that.
        I finally think when some said this would be much bigger than Watergate that they were right.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        jwoolman, I am so excited to see how that line of inquiry develops. It’s become a really crazy spiderweb.

      • jwoolman says:

        Tiffany – I always thought that an easy way to funnel foreign funds to an American campaign would be to give the money to an American citizen who then would donate it, since there seem to be no limits on campaign contributors now. There’s one fellow who is a US citizen and super rich but was born in Russia that seemed to be a prime suspect to me, he’s a big Trump supporter (can’t remember his name). But using organizations like the NRA is even easier since they don’t have to reveal their donors.

        We really have to change the way campaigns are funded, this is ridiculous. But I imagine Mueller is looking carefully at all the transactions.

        I’ve been watching some of Rachel Maddow’s segments on YouTube. One interesting one was done early in the Trump Administration about peculiarities of plans for a Trump hotel in Baku, a city on the Caspian Sea in Azerbaijan (a former Soviet Republic between Iran and Russia).

        The experienced construction company Bechtel had made an informal bid on building roads throughout the country, and the authorities had said it was too expensive. So Bechtel went home and they went with another company, which charged them more than three times as much per kilometer as Bechtel had estimated (!). As with those rich Russians who paid Trump two or three times the market price for real estate in the US – this crazy financial deal by the government suggested a money laundering scheme. The company they hired instead of Bechtel was thought to be involved with the Iranians supporting terrorist activities, who needed to launder money through apparently legit construction jobs because of sanctions.

        Enter the Trump Organization to build a luxury hotel in Baku. The plans for the Trump hotel were suddenly dropped when he won the election, but Ivanka had visited the site personally in 2014. It was way off the beaten path rather than near the water, very hard to get to with the expensive new roads according to a journalist whose cab driver was pretty baffled by the challenge of figuring out the strange turns while trying to get to a new government building constructed at the same site. The site for the future Trump hotel was nowhere near the Caspian Sea, where all the other luxury hotels in Baku were located. Instead, it had views of rail yards…. Very strange bedfellows for the Trumpster. Weird connections like this keep popping up for President Tweeter.

    • Swack says:

      For all you CBer’s being impacted by the storm – stay safe!

  13. Busyann says:

    I’m in DC too and have been awake since 4. This wind is crazy, cold, and snowy. It reminds me of the Santa Ana winds in LA in that it kind of brings out the cray cray in normal people and the batsh*t cray in the most bigliest, most deplorable ones.

    • Imqrious2 says:

      Windy and rainy today here in So. Cal (not as bad as the No’ Easter, of course), but definitely different than our perpetual summer. I’m loving it.

  14. Kelly says:

    Once him and his fellow swamp dwellers are gone, it’s going to take a long time for people to both have a level of trust in our government and to find good, talented, and ethical people who want to work in the federal government.

    Look at the Ben Carson and his $31K dining set saga. A career federal employee gets reprimanded and demoted for saying that it’s against the rules to go over budget on renovating his office. Who cares whether she leaned Republican or Democrat – she was doing her job by stating the rules and trying to follow them in this strange time.

    • Esmom says:

      I agree that Trump has tainted the office but I disagree that it will be hard to find talented, qualified people in the future once he’s out. It’s not that people don’t want to work in federal government, they don’t want to work in Trump’s government.

      For example a friend who is in public health would have loved to work at the CDC under Obama/Frieden but once Trump won the election she knew she wouldn’t have a chance nor would the CDC even be hiring people because…science.

    • Ennie says:

      The American ambassador in Mex ico just resigned yesterday.

    • magnoliarose says:

      Didn’t Carson work on the campaign too? Or transition?
      He’s a joke.

    • Kelly says:

      I work in the public sector in a state with a Republican governor. Since he got into office in 2010, we’ve lost collective bargaining rights, guaranteed annual raises, and have seen a decline in health insurance benefits, but having to pay more for that benefit. We don’t have paid family leave, whether it’s caring for infants or a family member. We also went nearly 3 years without a raise.

      One person in my office looked into seeing if we could purchase a small refrigerator to store cold items, including breast milk for her infant. She hoped that we could use money from our supply budget but was told no. If we want it, we have to pay for it out of pocket. Same goes for a coffee maker or electric kettle. Those items usually are in the $100 range, but would be worth getting for morale and increased productivity. The productivity argument would maybe force my coworker who manages to turn 15 minute coffee breaks into half hour plus disappearances daily. That’s a benefit to both taxpayers and his irritated colleagues.

  15. Levin says:

    Really side eyeing Baldwin saying he’d vote Romney…we don’t have to get just anyone else, we can do better. Trump is openly gross, only difference.

    I’m in the mid-Atlantic, too, but high winds make me sleep like a baby.

    • jwoolman says:

      I think Baldwin was just picking a name of a former Republican candidate to make his point. Heck, I’d rather have Mitt Romney than Cadet Bone Spurs any day. I didn’t vote for Romney, but if we’re stuck with a Republican, of course I’d take Romney if that would get rid of Trump. Romney would also be much better than Pence.

      Our problem is that we are stuck with, in order:
      Trump
      Pence
      Ryan
      Hatch

      Pretty dismal for the foreseeable future. And yes, Mitt would be better than any of them.

      • Lightpurple says:

        I am just going to point out, as I always do when this list appears that no, we are not necessarily stuck with that order. That’s the order only if something catastrophic takes place and multiple people are simultaneously removed from office or removed so closely together that there is no time to nominate & confirm replacements.

        Example: January 1973, Nixon & Agnew we’re sworn in as President & VP. By December 1974 Ford & Rockefeller held those jobs. Neither was ever speaker or senate president

      • jwoolman says:

        Lightpurple- that’s very true, a new name may be inserted in the list as Pence’s new Vice President, for example, if things happen slowly enough. I wonder if it all will happen too fast, though. What if Trump and Pence are both shown to be entangled in conspiracies at the same time? Then we have President Paul Ryan, who has been salivating to trash Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid for years.

        And of course – who would Pence name as VP anyway? We got lucky when Nixon pushed for Gerald Ford to replace Agnew. Ford wasn’t the brightest bulb on the tree (I had lived in his district years before in Michigan), but he seemed reasonably honest and not extreme. Not sure we would be so lucky with Pence’s choice. This assumes all this goes down before November 2018, of course, but if steps aren’t taken to secure the accuracy of the vote counts — the Republicans may very well remain in control no matter how the real vote goes. We’ve had problems with the vote counts since those machines became widely installed after the 2000 election.

    • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

      But that’s not the only difference. I too would be happy to take Romney, or Pence at this point. There is no one as bad as Trump with as much power.

      Trump is a pathological liar; both morally and ethically corrupt. Is systematically changing our democratic country into a banana republic (no offense), no respect for the constitution or the rule of law. He is illiterate, ignorant and a White Supremacists. Due to his hardon for a Black man achieving the highest office in the land, has gone about overturning every single thing Obama achieved on social justice, the environment, student loans, weakened health care. Not to mention the international deals we made falling apart and a drastic decrease in tourist and our standing in the international front.

      Republicans are money hungry, tell some lies and like to take aware social safety nets but they aren’t one step away from a straight jacket or trying to start a second civil war.

      • Darla says:

        I agree about Romney, but IMO, Pence IS just as bad as Trump, in a very different way. We don’t want to get into that situation. That’s a whole other can of worms.

      • Levin says:

        Trump is exceedingly, dangerously stupid and malevolent, I totally agree there. But if we must pick a silver lining, it’s the fact that everyone is paying attention now. The public at large was not checking for people like Trey Gowdy, Tom Cotton, or Orrin Hatch three years ago, and now we get dailies on the actual viewpoints they and many, many others in Congress hold. They’re not only just as bad as Trump; they *feed* him his ideologies, (he doesn’t have any that don’t involve his own personal wealth) so he can present it in a ham-fisted and childish manner. Including his Obama vendetta.

        I think, if anything, this says we are ready to choose someone who isn’t just “not Trump”, but is as far removed from corporate interests and systemic oppression of immigrants, minorities, and the working class (which covers just about everyone) as we can get.

        And war. It would be really great if we could stop droning people. That’s only gotten worse under Trump, too. I don’t see Romney or Pence doing anything but presenting what we have now with a friendlier face and better staff.

  16. PunkyMomma says:

    Interesting. Now that Hope Hicks is gone, his Twitter comments are full of errors again.

    Ugh. Sleight of hand to distract from the shit show taking place in the white house.

    It works, every fing time. When things are legitimately going to shit, he posts something insane and distracts us all. Similarly I’m convinced Hicks’ resignation was timed to distract from the Jared fiasco, and to take away headlines from the student protests.

    @Kaiser

    Emperor Zero woke up in a sh-tty mood because the winds were the Mueller Hurricane Alert System sending out messages that this administration is doomed.

    EZ is flailing now–talking about trade wars, the NRA, et al–to try to distract/deflect from the really important matter:

    Many Are Getting Arrested or

    MAGA!

    • Esmom says:

      Lol @ the Mueller Hurricane Alert System. It does indeed feel like something different, more powerful, is in the air.

      • Eric says:

        Indeed Esmom:

        “Winds” so strong I can feel it here on the West Coast.

        What’s this you say? Ivanka’s time in the barrel?

        😂

    • Shambles says:

      Ha. Many Are Getting Arrested. MAGA. He must be so, so tired of winning.

    • Christin says:

      Not enough hairspray in the world to combat those winds.

    • Kaiser says:

      Thank you for The New MAGA, Eric! #ManyAreGettingArrested

      • Eric says:

        Kaiser:
        I pinched that MAGA from somewhere.

        Just FYI, thank you and bless you for all your coverage of Emperor Zero! Love your snark!

        Must be exhausting

      Are the court houses closed on the east coast (Virginia, DC, NY)? Indictment Fridays have been so much fun!

      He seems like he is spiraling out of control. This makes me hope that the legal noose is getting tighter, but I worry about what damage he will do, acting as a cornered animal.

    Maggie Haberman (drump whisperer extraordinaire) has said drump told her that he wants his chaotic outbursts to sow confusion and that he loves the resulting outrage. He’s Putin’s puppet and one sick b*****d.

    • Christin says:

      I think he loves to see the headlines change, due to some random thing said or tweeted (either for fun or to shift focus from bigger stories that should be discussed).

    It’s gratifying to see Trump looking so terrible after only a year in office.

  21. Mia4s says:

    Not really an Alec Baldwin fan but Alex Baldwin is a national treasure!!

    God I just can’t joke about this. Russia literally threatened nuclear was the other day and the Cheeto Americans put in as POTUS woke up before 6am to send misspelled tweets about the star of Boss Baby. Bye America, it’s been fun I guess.

    • B n A fn says:

      Mia4s, I know you’re joking but this is not funny anymore. I’m 😱 this man will start a war in order to stop Mueller from airing out his dirty laundry for the world to see. Putin is showing his hands with nuclear weapon pointed to Florida, I believe, and he’s tweeting about AB. What is happening to this country and where is Ryan and McConnell?

  22. Betsy says:

    Yes, I think he knows Mueller is blowing into court.

  23. Patty says:

    Shame on every person who voted for that fool. Seriously, anyone who voted for that man is directly responsible for all this nonsense. And now he’s about to start a trade war. You can kiss the “booming” economy bye – bye.

    Trumps election was a total cut off my nose to spite my face by petty white people — and those same people will continue to try and place the blame on others (non whites and immigrants) for the mess that the US is in. If you haven’t watched I Am Not Your Negro, please check it out. It’s streaming on Prime. James Baldwin called this decades ago.

    • B n A fn says:

      About a month ago I would read all his followers saying how much the love the dotard and how much their 401 has increased. I can’t remember the last time I read a comment about how great their 401k is doing. Don the Con has a history of turning everything he touched into a lump of coal. Anyone remember how he bankrupt the casinos. Trump university, trump steak, trump vodka, trump football 🏈 team , ect. The only buildings he’s making money off are those he lends his name to but not the owner. Also, I still remember his trying to evict that elderly lady off her property to turn it into a parking lot in Atlantic City and all those people he paid a few cents on the dollar when they worked for him and told them to sue him. That’s the man who is running our country into the ground.

    • adastraperaspera says:

      Absolutely agree!

    • Indiana Joanna says:

      That aired on PBS and was wonderful. Baldwin was a genius.

      However, even with his genius the media and political figures did not treat him with the respect he deserved. Dick Cavett was very dismissive towards him when Baldwin appeared on his show. Bobby Kennedy was very patronizing in discussing Black issues in the 1960s. It’s really shocking to see now what Baldwin had to fight against but amazing in how he articulated the prevailing attitudes during the Civil Rights decade of the ’60s.

    TRump and his family of thieves are all going to end up in prison.
    Bob Mueller – hero of the world.

  25. Jayna says:

    I find it hard to believe that he wants to get rid of Jarvanka. He would have no one left he depends on that caters to him that he absolutely trusts and that soothes his man-baby ego. Hope is gone. I guess he has Kellyanne.
