Donald Trump tells his supporters to target SNL employees for ‘retribution’

President Donald J. Trump Remarks on Border Security

As we speak, Donald Trump is currently going crazy on Twitter (what else is new) about Andrew McCabe’s 60 Minutes interview. I don’t think McCabe is The One or whatever, but he has a million times more credibility than Donald Trump, so it bugs me to see so many outlets – not to mention the lardass president – nitpick his statements, many of which can be backed up with evidence or secondary sources.

On Sunday, Trump once again took aim at…the media. And Saturday Night Live. It’s disturbing how commonplace his threats have become, and it’s upsetting to see how many people just shrug when he tweets sh-t like this:

He’s quite clearly telling his die-hard supporters to target journalists and SNL employees for “retribution.” Because they satirized him. Because they reported on him. Does it ever bother the Deplorables to see such constant evidence that their white supremacist hero is so thin-skinned and fascist?

Speaking of Trump being an utter moron, apparently the American government requested that the Japanese prime minister recommend Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize. I sh-t you not.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe nominated U.S. President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize last autumn after receiving a request from the U.S. government to do so, the Asahi newspaper reported on Sunday. The report follows Trump’s claim on Friday that Abe had nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize for opening talks and easing tensions with North Korea.

The Japanese leader had given him “the most beautiful copy” of a five-page nomination letter, Trump said at a White House news conference. The U.S. government had sounded Abe out over the Noble Peace Prize nomination after Trump’s summit in June last year with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the first meeting between a North Korean leader and a sitting U.S. president, the Asahi said, citing an unnamed Japanese government source.

How sad and pathetic and vain is this? Embarrassingly so. I’ll never stop being ashamed of how stupidly narcissistic Donald Trump is, and how easily he’s getting played by every other world leader.

PS… Melania’s totally wearing a Slanket.

    I will lose my mind if he gets re-elected

    • AnnaKist says:

      I’m with you, Snowlake, and I’m not even American. It’s not too much to ask, is it, that after November 2020, his name is never, ever mentioned again? And in the event he gets the Nobel Peace Prize, I’m going to lock myself away with wine, chocolate and blankets, and just give up.

      • BeanieBean says:

        I would like it mentioned in an indictment.

      • Anna says:

        He never ever going to get a Nobel Peace Prize. If he does, I will lock myself up as well with a lifetime supply of chocolate.

      • Megan says:

        I think the Nobel Peace Prize lost all credibility when they gave it to Kissinger.

      • AnnaKist says:

        BeanieBean: 👍 Indictment and/or obituary.
        Anna: Come, we can eat chocolate together. My favourites are After Eight, good dark chocolate with almonds, Peppermint Crisp, Chokito, Pinky bars…
        Megan: You’re right – I’d forgotten all about that. Mind you, I wouldn’t even award him a participation certificate for an egg-and-spoon race.

    • BchyYogi says:

      As a WOC, w this man on the scene, I just NEVER know what’s coming. One day we are sure he’s “outta there” for admitting to assaulting women “because when you’re famous”, then next, he’s literally elected. After labeling white supremists “fine ppl”, he starts prison reform, then calls SNL the enemies of the ppl? I feel like a rat in a glass cage not knowing what behavior on which day will deliver the electric shock. If he’s re-elected, I’ll need therapy for certain. This is no way to live! My son sees me upset and thinks it’s something HE did. It spills into my family life!

    • Darla says:

      Ugh, I’m sorry Bchy. I totally feel you, mine too. I don’t believe he will be reelected, but then I never believed he COULD be elected president in the first place. I promised myself I would make concrete plans to move out of the country by 2020 just in case. I’ve done nothing yet. I don’t think I can do another 4 years, so something has to give.

      • Darla says:

        You know, part of this inertia on my part is; where do you go? It didn’t take long to realize this right wing nationalist movement is global. Look at the UK. The most obvious exit is Canada, but after what happened in Ontario with Ford, you think, huh.

      • OriginalLala says:

        unfortunately Canada also seems to be going down a right-wing path….very conservative provincial gov’ts were elected this year in both Ontario and Quebec – things are going to keep getting worse too with the federal election in the fall. I’m worried…

      • Darla says:

        I am too Lala. I have had the comfort of having Canada my neighbor to the immediate north, here in NY.

    • Megan says:

      I am terrified he will be re-elected. It’s almost too much to contemplate.

    • Esmerelda says:

      He’ll be re-elected for sure. 100%. Big money backs him and nothing is more attractive to his base (and to a lot of the bien piensant bourgeoisie) than straight up racism.
      America needs an electoral college reform.

      The rationale behind the Nobel prize thing, I’m sure, is simply: but Obama got one!, so his base will love the talking point.

      And the call out to snl and the media is straight up fascism. Dark times ahead.

      • vava says:

        He’ll be re-elected if the Democrats and Independents don’t get their $hit together.

      • Darla says:

        No it is not 100%. Don’t tell people that. It isn’t true. People need to get out and vote. Remember what Sarah Connor said – there is no destiny!

      • insertpunhere says:

        I don’t think we should be resting on an assumption that he’ll lose, but he didn’t win by that much. He managed to pull out just enough votes to squeak through in important states.

        Michigan is very much in play for the 2020 elections if the Dems can get union workers on board. Given that we elected Haley Stevens in a historically Republican district in 2018, all the Democrats need to do here is run someone who resonates with the UAW (which doesn’t mean ignores POC, women, LGBTQ issues, etc, just someone who acknowledges that the auto workers are people who are deserving of representation rather than not bothering to visit the state because Michigan is part of the blue wall).

        Trump won for variety of reasons in 2016, some of which were the DNC/Clinton’s fault. If they learn from those mistakes and campaign in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, we have a good chance of flipping the states blue again, especially because the tariffs are hurting people.

        It is crucial that progressives don’t give in to this sense that nothing we do matters. Maybe it’s true. Maybe we’ve ushered in the end of humanity by electing orange Hitler. You know what makes it definitely true? If we all just give up and don’t even try to fix things.

    • Lisa says:

      If it is of comfort, Adolph Hitler was nominated for a Nobel Prize, too.

  2. Chef Grace says:

    Orange white supremacist.

  3. RBC says:

    He is just asking for someone to get hurt or worse. As for him getting a Nobel prize, he probably thinks it is like a free gift you get with a Big Mac at McDonalds
    How on earth did this man get elected?

    • Yup, Me says:

      Cheating, stupidity and just enough apathy from non Republican voters for it to be close enough for him to win.

      I feel pretty certain he will be crushed in the next election (if he’s even still able to run) because enough voters with some damn sense will come out to make it absolutely certain that he knows he’s unwanted and disliked and unworthy.

      Unless 53% of white women and however many white men decide to show their asses again …

  4. Sue Denim says:

    Thank goodness, she’s got her Burkin in these dire emergency times… Seriously tho, what is so scary is the plays straight out of the autocrat’s handbook, staging then declaring emergencies to grab power, demonizing others, threatening the press… He’s hacking away at our democracy day by day and I really fear if not stopped, will do an outright power grab like dictators before him have — create an inciting incident, declare martial law, throw journalists and opponents in jail, etc. How are we here…

    • Sadezilla says:

      I have the same fear, Sue. For all the crazy headlines EZ generates, the slow and steady erosion of democratic norms, and the acceptance of that erosion by the public, is what scares me.

  5. PlayItAgain says:

    I just noticed—look at the heels of his shoes. Do they look higher than normal? Is he wearing lifts like Tom Cruise??

  6. Rapunzel says:

    He keeps babbling that the Dems colluded against him, as an “insurance policy.” That makes zero sense. Zero.

    His story is that Hillary and the Dems worked together with Russia to win, but also created a backup plan to…. impeach him if he won? Hillary was supposedly fixing things to win, but lost, and had a plan in play to….make him miserable if that happened? The whole thing makes no sense. How does anyone believe this garbage he spews?

    Hillary, who according to RWNJ has a kill list a mile long, and is the devil incarnate, colluded with Russia and still lost? Stupidest theory ever.

    • Keaton says:

      I know right? So supposedly Hillary is such an evil mastermind she PLOTTED out this whole Russia thing as an “insurance policy” and yet didn’t leak the contents of the dossier BEFORE the election? Didn’t leak the fact Trump’s campaign was under investigation by the FBI BEFORE the election as well? She took hit after hit for being under investigation by the FBI but said NOTHING about Trump’s campaign being under investigation too? SUUUURE. Makes total sense. It’s a staggeringly STUPID conspiracy and yet the MAGAt morons blather about it shamelessly. Amazing.

    • Algernon says:

      He is so mad that he won, he is now blaming Hillary for him winning. He can’t get over it.

  7. Eric says:

    Emperor Zero’s ego had to be stroked with the embarrassing Shinzo Abe “nomination” for a Nobel because Angela Merkel spanked Ivanka and left her Botox-frozen while a thunderous applause cascaded around her and Manafort-hire VP Pence received nary a COUGH when he said European allies should reject the Iran Nuclear Deal and when he opened with some drivel like “trump sends his regards.”


    • Lightpurple says:

      Let’s put the focus where it belongs, shall we? On Merkel’s accurate, truthful takedown of Trump on the world stage. Infuriating that instead of focusing on her truth, the media is instead focusing on the petty reactions of a spoiled brat snake, who didn’t belong there. Nagini and the media made it all about Nagini instead of about Merkel’s accurate analysis of Trump’s ridiculous national security claims. Meanwhile, Nagini’s speech about “American values” was littered with KKK slogans. She didn’t belong there. Her attendance was a flagrant violation of federal ethics laws. She’s costing us a fortune and we need to make Congress put an end to it.

      Merkel’s warm, happy embrace of Speaker Pelosi gave me life this weekend.

      • Eric says:

        Not disagreeing with your accurate assessment of all things horribly wrong with EZ and his wayward sperm donations…

        I just personally enjoy takedowns of his fetish projects and his “administrators.” I hope EZ mentions more Sicario 2: The Soledad duct tape scenes, speaking of fetishes…

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Is it me or is Ivanka looking more like a blonde version of her stepmother every time I see her. Princess Nagini has def had some more surgery on her mug.

      • Lightpurple says:

        She had more work done during the shutdown when she wasn’t doing photo ops for a month. I suspect a new chin implant. The whole mess hadn’t settled by the State of the Union and was still swollen.

      • Darla says:

        She looks ridiculous, which I did notice, but I didn’t realize it was a chin implant. Why do people get chin implants?

  8. AnnaKist says:

    God, what an utter twat. He’s too stupid to realise he constantly invites all the well-deserved mockery. Keep it up, media! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a world leader, or any high-profile politician with such a thin skin. He’s a complete moron.
    Melania is wearing a sort of body armour, usually worn when one is coming into close proximity with, well, something toxic. Just quietly, I’d have worn gloves, but since she’s already contaminated, it’s a moot point.

  9. Jerusha says:

    The individual members of the Nobel selection committee are busting a gut over this farce. Meanwhile VP White Bread mentioned Dear Leader during the Munich Security Conference and … crickets. Dead silence. Total contempt.🤣🤣🤣

  10. mike says:

    He is desperate for the Nobel Prize because Obama has one. It’s eating him up how love President Obama was

    • BeanieBean says:

      That’s exactly it. And like the entitled rich white man that he is, he thought it would be easy to get a Nobel.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        which is also the bottom line of his idea of the presidency. he figured (pardon the crudity of the language) “how hard can it be if a black guy did it and was loved by so many?” not realizing that it was O’s SUBSTANCE and COMPASSION and INTELLIGENCE and ABILITIES that people loved. of which 45 has none. it KILLS him that “a black guy” could do what he cannot.

        just like it STILL kills him that HRC got more votes. a WOMAN got more votes than he did. that’s why he STILL brings up his electoral “landslide” (his word) win.

  11. Jerusha says:

    This photo is a perfect illustration of the trump/Putin Submissive/Dominant relationship. Also, notice how much taller Putin is.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Whatever Putin has on IQ45 must be so horrific that it cowers even someone who has NO shame or regret for his actions. Its more than tax evasion, money laundering, bribes, pee tapes, hookers etc.. Putin has evidence of his worst behaviour and impulses that would completely and utterly destroy him if it gets out.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        Putin owns him. almost literally.

        I fully believe that 45 isn’t a billionaire and that he owes LOTS and LOTS of $$$ to Putin and his oligarch friends. I think 45′s biggest fear is having no $ and people KNOWING that he doesn’t have money. it’s his whole reason for being and reason for fame and, basically his entire persona. a billionaire businessman who’s good at business. if it came out that he’s essentially broke and owes billions to Russia and Russian oligarchs, what else does he have? just the bigotry.

  12. SamC says:

    I’m still amazed he declares a national emergency than has time for multiple rounds of golf AND to watch/tweet SNL. He’s like some orange cult leader…had thought the lower tax refunds might sway some people since his policies are finally hitting people financially but still they follow blindly.

    • jwoolman says:

      Hopefully the courts will prevent this national emergency nonsense. Meanwhile, I’m sure the Trumpers are looking for other projects to siphon money off of to appease the Orange Menace.

      One thing I remember clearly from civics class is that Congress holds the power of the purse. Too bad Mitch McConnell has forgotten that. I don’t know if Mitch is being bribed or blackmailed, but he has certainly not been fulfilling his role as majority leader over the past two years. He is just a Trump Toady.

      Trump is destroying the Republican Party and such blind support makes no sense. Pence would push their agenda far more effectively.

      At most 25% of eligible voters voted for Trump anyway. If those non-voting registered voters get off their collective duffs and actually vote, I doubt that the majority will be diehard Republicans guaranteed to vote for anybody with (R) after their name. Such voters will need to be convinced of something other than how batshit crazy Trump is.

      • Yup, Me says:

        Time and again it has been shown that when voter turnout is high, Republicans struggle to win. The only time they “sweep” or even win an election is when they manage to have the perfect combination of voter apathy and infringed rights that their base is the “majority” who come out.

        If voting was made more accessible and we also switched to a one person one vote arrangement, there would be a complete change in the results.

  13. Snappyfish says:

    Threating ir encouraging “retribution” of those who disagree with the president is a crime. When will the GOP get their heads our of their a$$es & do their job to defend and protect the Constitution?

  14. Esmom says:

    As Dan Pfeiffer noted on Twitter yesterday, “The fact that the President is either delusional or a particularly dumb and pathological liar is frankly not taken seriously enough”

    I can’t believe how much we have come to normalize everything Trump says and does. I feel like we need to be running in the streets, frantically sounding the alarms. But it wouldn’t matter. Nothing does.

  15. Nola says:

    I can’t even with this man. I am incredulous that DT is our President.

    On a fashion note, I kind of love Melania’s look. Although, those heels are way higher than I would ever be able to wear.

    • vava says:

      I like that look as well. She can pull it off because she has a large bust line. I would never be able to maneuver in those heels, either.

  16. Sparkly says:

    Every day I wake up and wonder if this might be the day that people take to the streets and pull his orange ass out of the white house. I really don’t understand why that hasn’t happened yet.

  17. jwoolman says:

    What do people in Japan think about Abe acquiescing to such a foolish thing as nominating Trump for a peace prize? Seems to indicate Abe is under the thumb of the batshit crazy US President. Is that really ok with Japanese citizens?

    • Lightpurple says:

      Did he even file it or just write a fake one to give to Trump? Abe has made it clear pretty much from the start that he knows it is all Pay to Play with the Trumps.

  18. Melody calder says:

    If anything happens, he better be prosecuted like that girl that just got charged for encouraging her boyfriend to kill himself… this is the same thing.

  19. PhillyGal says:

    Trump is SO insecure. He wants everyone to believe that he is the smartest, toughest, bravest cat in the land. Yet he is too stupid to understand that what he tweets communicates the exact opposite.

  20. Incredulous says:

    Happy President’s Day!

    I mean The Aristocrats!

  21. Anna says:

    Alex Baldwin tweeted that he is now concerned for him and his family safety.

  22. Skipper says:

    A Slanket. 🤣. I bet she paid a lot for her Slanket.

  23. themummy says:

    This is all just so pathetic. Abe is also completely pathetic. The Orange Anus ASKS him for a Nobel nomination…and not only does he DO it, but he writes a FIVE page letter nominating him?? Just gross.

    • Lady D says:

      There is a large American naval base in Japan. Part of the reason it’s there is to discourage N. Korea from doing something rash. I imagine Abe wants to keep that presence there, hence the letter. I have no problem believing that Trump threatened him in some way.

  24. Jerusha says:

    I just started watching Fahrenheit 11/9. I don’t know if I’ll make the entire 2 hours, 8 minutes. 37 minutes in and I’m already in a homicidal rage.

  25. lucy says:

    Not same subject, but I was reading some friends fb posts today. One was commenting how horrible Trump is, the lies and all, and many of her friends were attacking her because all us “snowflakes” can do is accuse Trump of lying and believing all the “fake news” out there. There is no proof Trump has lied! I just can’t. They believe every stupid thing that comes out of his mouth or his twitter, whether he later contradicts himself or not! How are people so stupid???

    • Incredulous says:

      They feel wronged. Rather than go through any self-examination as to why they feel wronged and what they says about them, they endorse a proxy – Trump – to punish and inflict cruelty on the people they perceive wronged them. They will always feel wronged, they will always yearn for halcyon days that never existed, they will always endorse anything that resembles big daddy authoritarian because they will not and cannot admit that they want to be five years old again, running around and playing, utterly unaware of the reality of the world around them, with parental hugs and the crusts cut off.

  26. Nichole says:

    I think he thinks ‘Weekend Update’ is an actual news segment.

  27. adastraperaspera says:

    His fascist rhetoric is beyond unacceptable. It’s frightening. And it’s escalating. We have to get rid of him by any means necessary. McCabe’s appearance is our warning that it’s go time. Let the indictments rain down!

  28. CooCooCatchoo says:

    There aren’t enough designer clothes, spa treatments, holiday homes or pieces of jewelry that would EVER convince me to sleep with that orange POS. Melania, you sold your soul to the devil. Hope it’s worth it, you shallow mannequin.
