Oh, oops...it was right in the paragraph above. 🤪

It seemed like the purrrrrfect moniker for him and his whizbang presidency-- full of sound and fury, more bluster than a tornado and 'pay no attention to those Fake News folks! All played with a cast of characters too inept to actually be villains.

 

While watching Rand Paul on the Sunday morning talks show defending the WMWoO's extortion attempts by using WhatAboutIsms de Hillary ( who lost the election in the Electoral College, BTW, and doesn't have the power to do what he is doing), I was reminded of the immortal fictional Faster Than Light Drive in James Blish's sci-fi stories that allowed whole cities to be sent into hyperspace called The Spindizzy. It was an antigravity device that only became stronger as the mass of whatever it was powering became greater. Washington, D.C.=  BS powered Spindizzy? The Spin on this Impeachment Inquiry is enough to make anyone dizzy, at least, if not totally nauseous.

Come on, Republicans, you keep defending a crook! Why can’t you see that? You are enabling his bad behavior. You really want to be associated with this horrible man? You have no integrity.

Trump will definitely be impeached.  They have enough now to charge him with asking a foreign power to interfere in American elections.  

 

He won't be declared guilty by the Senate trial, and he will then be able to blather everywhere that he was declared innocent of everything.  

 

It's nauseating just thinking about it.  This next year can't pass soon enough.

trump: "People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times." 

 

(there isn't a face palm deep enough)

I really want context for why the heck he was talking about toilets. I heard the story, but wtf? I'm dying over here laughing that maybe he's thinking water shortages are caused by flushing toilets. 

(Yes, it's a problem, but there are other problems and not just toilet flushing.)

On Catalina Island off the coast of LA people were basically on one flush a day until the beginning of this year.

 

I flushed my toilet ten times just to honor our thread's master.

There's rarely any context other than he had a microphone.

Some right wing thing to do away with environmental regulations.

 

(he wasn't talking about water shortages, but more the opposite - basically saying the water doesn't come out strong enough in bathrooms, even in states that have so much water it rushes right out to the ocean, where they have so much water it falls out of clouds and that's called rain)

 

I guess he must have heard the talking point somewhere (Fox, maybe?) and did his usual "crazy old man" rant about it.

Well, I flushed 3 times today for the record and I did not look orange in the light of the bathroom.  Seems only Trump looks orange with these new fangled lights.

 

Trump had a rough day today.  (1) articles of impeachment were drawn up, (2) the IGs report said the FBI was justified in there look into Russian meddling in our 2016 election, and (3) he had the Russian foreign minister in the Oval Office to.....I guess get orders from Puttie...on the day he found out impeachment is going to happen.  All in a day's work, I guess.

 

Oh, shit, I have to flush a 4th time.  I hope the flush police are not watching.

He wasn't talking about 10 or 15 times a day. He was talking about 10 or 15 times in a row, to get it to flush properly.

It really is comforting to have a President who worries about the important things like toilet-flushing.   Obama never talked about toilet-flushing.  I guess he just didn't care.

I will be honest. As refreshing as it was to hear a politician saying what they think, you quickly realize why it's best for their words to meticulously be controlled as with their every behavior.

So Trump and his defenders are saying Jesus and the accused as witches in Salem had it easier in their trials than Trump. They were tortured and executed. Trump will suffer no such fate. Trump complains his trial won’t be fair but doesn’t allow anyone to testify on his behalf. He bragged that Putin defends him about being impeached.

 

At one of his rallies he talks in a very mocking tone about Debbie Dingell and says that John Dingell is looking up from hell. What a jerk.

I think Republicans will be very, very happy to get rid of Trump in 2020, although they'll be unhappy to lose to a Democrat.  However, as long as they don't lose the Senate, I think they'll consider it a good bargain.

I never thought I'd kill for an actual Republican to be in office. Poor McCain. He had to die seeing a hellscape in his party. Thankfully, he didn't have to live to see what is happening now.

People in Canada feeling Kevin O'Leary or like minded people would make a great prime minister, need to look at Trump.

 

He is a wake up call for the rest of the world.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jan/15/trump-rails-against-refrigerators-promises-cleaner-dishes-milwaukee-rally

 

While Democratic presidential candidates sparred over climate change at their debate in Iowa, Trump offered a contrasting message in the vital swing state of Wisconsin by calling out the Department of Energy for tightening energy efficiency standards for dishwashers, refrigerators, lightbulbs and more.


The rally, held at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panther Arena, took a strange turn to appliances, with Trump taking particular offense at household items that limit water usage. “Sinks, toilets, and showers – you don’t get any water,” he said.

 

He also railed into dishwashers and refrigerators, evoking nostalgia for more powerful machines.

 

“Remember the dishwasher? You’d press it, boom! There’d be, like, an explosion. Five minutes later you open it up, the steam pours out,” he said. Trump then criticized newer models, claiming women – just women – across the country have to now wash their dishes “10 times”.

 

“Anybody have a new dishwasher? I’m sorry for that,” he told the crowd, promising that under his presidency their “dishes will be beautiful”.

I think he's running out of things to say at his rallies, and probably running out of people to come to them.  Someone on Facebook posted an ad from his campaign asking for "supporters" to come to a rally, where they'd be paid $15/hr.

I'd love to say something on topic here, but I'm too busy flushing my toilet.

What a socialist hypocrite! They should be paid six dollars an hour under the table. Hunger builds character.

Soon to be the only entry-level job that pays $50/hour... Trump supporter extras. They should consider cardboard fans.

They are already using an ad if a teacher, mom, house wife who supports Trump.  Thing is, she has popped up in 8 different states so far.  She gets around.
