The scariest thing about Halloween was the Jack O’ Lantern in the Oval Office or maybe it was the White Sheets. #DumpTrump

helen-mug1 FROM HELEN:

Margaret, what the hell is happening? Nazi’s are fine people. Russia poked me on Facebook. The Real Housewives of Trump Tower are fighting over who’s the real First Lady. And now the Civil War wasn’t about slavery. Has everyone gone insane?

We had an opportunity to have an honest conversation about racism and once again Trump screwed it up. Those football players are kneeling for a reason and it has nothing to do with the flag. And then we had an opportunity to have an honest conversation about gun violence and once again the Republican Party made it about… turned it into… changed the topic to… wait a minute. They didn’t do anything. They just left it hanging out there. It’s just bat shit crazy if you ask me.

And now we are debating the civil war? Again? I know for damn sure we had that conversation a long time ago and it ended with freeing the slaves and a dead president. Compromise? John Kelly says it was about lack of compromise? General Kelly, with all due respect, what was the acceptable compromise? The South could keep the slaves, but they had to give them weekends off? My God is anyone in the  Trump White House not a racist? They’ve got more white sheets than a Motel 6 in Pulaski, Tennessee.

The other day I saw John Kasich on TV talking about his dissatisfaction with the Republican Party and I thought maybe we could find something to agree upon. But then he said that he had no idea what Democrats stood for and I was reminded that Kasich is still an asshat.

Mr. Kasich here is what Democrats stand for.  It’s not a secret.

  • Affordable healthcare for all.  Period.
  • Common sense gun control because you don’t need an assault rifle to kill a deer.
  • Immigration reform.
  • Equal pay for equal work.
  • A woman can be trusted to make her own healthcare decisions.
  • Sex education reduces unintended pregnancies.
  • Love is color blind and gender neutral.
  • Global warming is not a Chinese hoax even though Trump has more chins than a Chinese phone book.   (Was that racist or just a clever play on the word chin being Chen is the 5th most common Chinese surname?  Actually it was a joke about Trump being a fatass which has nothing to do with global warming unless you count the amount of gas Trump releases from his fat ass daily.  Surely there is a scientist who can tell us what harm that is causing.  You know what?  Never mind.  Just get us back into the damn Paris Climate Agreement.  That’s what I meant to say, really. )
  • Happy Holidays is a lovely thing to say to someone when you want them to have a Happy Holiday.
  • Every child should have access to a quality education.
  • College should be affordable.
  • Coal is stupid.  (see Chen reference above)
  • Slavery was bad.
  • Nazi’s are not fine people.
  • Trump is a moron. (Which makes Rex Tillerson an honorary Democrat)

I’m sure I’ve left a few things out, but I think that’s a pretty good list to start. And I imagine if you read the comments below, you’ll learn a few more things we Democrats stand for.

I think the real question is what do Republicans stand for?  Because it appears they stand for greed, racism and coal. I’m not sure if you know this, but Donald Trump Jr. tweets bullshit about as well as his father. Last night he tweeted out a picture of his adorable daughter with her Halloween candy. He commented that he was going to make her give half of it away to children who didn’t go out because it’s never to [sic] late to teach her about socialism.”  Now I don’t know about you, but where I come from a child giving away half of her candy to other kids is called sharing and it’s a very charitable thing to do.  But bless their hearts, the Trumps know nothing about charity.  Maybe it would be a better lesson to have her get 99% of the candy and just wait to see how long it takes for some of it to trickle down to the poor kids she hangs out with. Or better yet, have her pledge to give 25,000 pieces of it to a Gold Star Father and then forget to do it. Oh.  I know.  Teach her to take the candy from other children and then give it away herself so she can tell everyone how charitable she is and maybe take a tax deduction and then hide her tax returns.

When I was a little girl, if you ran into someone like Donald Trump or Donald Trump Jr. you would conclude that they were not right in the head. Now I have a feeling that little expression is no longer politically correct, but in this case, it is medically correct so I could stand by it. Instead, I’ll try not to offend anyone and just say that Donald Trump is not normal, and I don’t mean that in a good way.  He’s about 9 eggs short of a dozen.   A small fries shy of a Happy Meal.  A Saturday devoid of a weekend. He’s only got one oar in the water. If his brains were dynamite, he couldn’t blow his nose. So dumb he couldn’t pour piss out of a boot with the instructions written on the heel… Awe hell. The man’s an idiot and so is his son, Slow Donnie.

Might I remind all of you Republicans out there that your candidates insulted one another’s wives and compared penis size. And then you went and elected the disgusting one who admits to assaulting women. Last time I checked, Democrats didn’t nominate Harvey Weinstein.

I’m a little tired of everyone trying to make sense out of this President. He ain’t right in the head. I mean it really.

Helen, dear, I don’t want to take the chance of offending anyone so I’m donating to Goodwill my Robert E. Lee potholder I bought in Charleston in 1962. The color doesn’t go with my kitchen anymore anyway.

  2. I just can’t….The governor of Georgia – a woman – says she believes Roy Moore’s accusers, but she still encourages people to vote for him because he’s a Rethuglican. Sure, he’s a paedophile, but he’s one of ours. Truly. And Trump believes him because Moore says ne’s innocent. Just like he “believes” Putin. I mean, they wouldn’t lie, would they? And of course, Trumplethinskin adds that they CAN’T elect a Dem, he’s soft on crime. Right. A former prosecutor is soft on crime. AAAARGGGHHHh!!!!!!!

With all these video clips they certainly did have one of Trump done years ago when he was asked if he would ever run for president. He equivocated. No. Maybe. Yes, if he was at the head of a reform party. If you haven’t seen this and if you are lucky enough to have rebroadcast of it in your viewing area, it would be worth your time to watch.

  18. Thanks for your post. As an Independent voter who has been a member of both parties, I have been frustrated by the lack of civility, lack of truth and lack of due diligence shown by the President. I am also frustrated by the ongoing rationalization by his party for his behavior. When he was elected, I said let’s give him a chance as his success will be ours and that is how this works. I did have low expectations which he has failed to achieve. After I made the above statement of hope, within days he appointed Steve Bannon as a Senior Advisor and that made a huge statement to me, that white supremacy and nationalism had a chair at the table.

    The President consistently is more untruthful than he is not. It has been measured at 69% of the time, which is kind as it gives him credit for partial truths in the 31%. This is not news as Politifacts said he lied 70% of the time during the campaign and his five biographers and ghost writer for his biggest selling book all said Trump has a problem with the truth. Thomas Wells, an attorney who worked with Trump, wrote last June, 2016, that Trump lies “every day, even about things of no consequence.” Other leaders in the US and abroad do not trust this man and why would they? So, I keep it simple and do not believe a word he says as the odds are in my favor.

    Then there is the demonization of everyone who dares criticize him or did things he did not do. Everything Obama or Bush did is “horrible” and every thing he will do will be “beautiful” or “make you happy.” But, it is the transactional, zero-sum game he plays with critics. He must crush them to make it alright in his mind. He rarely criticizes on issues or policies as he is not steeped in details. He prefers a mud fight. This lack of civility to people who have lost loved ones, homes, livelihoods, civil rights, etc, is downright un-Presidential and un-Christian. It would not be confused with the right thing to do.

    If this were not bad enough, almost every decision is made off rhetoric, not data. Our problems are too complex to solve them without knowing what caused them. Or, solving a problem that has been over-simplified or does not exist. Right now, the Department of Defense says not reacting to climate change is a threat to national security. If you take this one step further, then a President who ignores climate change, must also be a threat to national security. Thomas Friedman wrote an excellent piece about the holistic problems in Niger, which includes the impact climate change has had on desertification and causing farmers to invite in ISIS. This is what a President should consider.

    The sad part about the last issue is the President does not show any desire to learn things. We have woeful staff shortages and he has a limited attention span. Michael Lewis has written about how Obama’s people made transition books and invited the Trump people in to meet. Department by department, very few took them up on this.

    I am sorry for the long comment. I wanted to share the view of this Independent. We now need more Republican leaders to remember to whom they swore their oath – it is to the Constitution, not the party or this President. He needs to be censured and he may eventually need to be impeached, if what appears to be true about Russia, in fact is. That is what I believe.

Being biblically illiterate can hurt yourself. In this case, never having heard of Matthew 25 and helping the poor, etc. so you can at least get through the eye of the needle, dammit! And they never heard about that old saying, how it is easier for a camel to get through the eye of a needle than . . . oh, hell, never mind! And that is exactly what we have to lay on these whatsits whenever they babble “Well, what have the Democrats done? Stand for?” And then there is this thing called the Constitution! We stand for that cuz the majority of us have read it and know what it means and actually will stand on constitutional ground when a Democratic lawyer has to help out a Rethug on the basis that everybody – everybody! – deserves a fair trial!

  57. Once again you ladies have got it correct. I’ve never been so ashamed of a sitting president (apologies to the previous 44) even Nixon wasn’t this bad. As for blue falcon Kelly, he deserves to have some stars removed for lying. I always thought that officers were supposed to be truthful and apologize if they made a grevious mistake. But racist misogynist Kelly refuses to apologize to a sitting United States Congresswoman when a video shows that he’s wrong. He lied. She wasn’t in Congress when the building funds were appropriated and he refuses to admit he’s wrong. And that empty-headed mouthpiece backs him. But then the entire White House is run by racist morons who should be nowhere near government. The Ancient Greeks had a group of female Goddesses the Furies who went after those who broke their oaths. In those times, an oath was a sacred bond. They were called by cursing the oath breaker(s). The Furies then tormented those unfortunates on Earth and into hell. Let the cursing begin!
