45's Address To Congress
Posted by: neophyte
Date: February 28, 2017 07:01PM
In the Grand Tradition of my Great State of South Carolina, I am looking forward to proudly standing up and shouting 'You Lie' whenever warranted during tonight's ramblings. Who's with me?

I fear I will be hoarse by the end of this travesty of an address.

I think LIAR! will be heard all across America tonight.

If you would like a little lighter conversation afterwards: Bill Maher, Kathy Griffin, Michael Moore and Rob Reiner are joining Chris Matthews on his MSNBC show at midnight eastern.

Hasn't gone off the rails yet.

He still says "Radical Islamic Terrorists". Now he's on Obama Care bashing.

Need the fact checkers when it's over.

I would rather watch Trump talk while weasels ripped my flesh than listen to Kathy Griffin.

The widow getting trotted out for an action that 45 called to make himself look big: disgusting.



Hurts like a bastid...

Not even worth a look. He's an asshat and doesn't warrant the time.

Unfortunately, he wields some BAD ASS power right now, and this must dealt with.

Sure, everyone's going to have health care...but if you're sick, it'll cost you a $1000 a day.

Did you catch the "we'll make a deal to promote peace anywhere"? That means 'We'll team up with Putin in Syria and other places and in return GOODBYE Ukraine, The Balkans, The Baltic Countries, and any other parts of the old Soviet Union we don't care about anyway. because despite the mountains of evidence, Russia is our pal. (Yeah, we're helping Iran in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and elsewhere, but that doesn't count if Vlad's our friend.)
Despite what the Pentagon and Owen's Father said, the Yemen raid was a vast success. Let's let his widow cry on national TV for a while.)

She allowed herself to be used. She could have not appeared. His father didn't want to have anything to do with Trump. [www.newsweek.com] I guess there is a wedge between the wife and the in-laws.

"... he developed a cult of one-man leadership that focused media attention and national debate on his own personality. As a former journalist reality TV star, Mussolini Trump proved highly adept at exploiting all forms of mass media, including such new forms as motion pictures Fox News and radio Twitter. "

As the applause went on and Carryn Owens stood weeping, Trump offered what in the tiny, narcissistic world he exists in is the highest form of praise: “And Ryan is looking down, right now, you know that. And he’s very happy, because I think he just broke a record,” referring to the length of the ovation.

What exactly is that supposed to mean? Owens set the “Longest Applause for Dead Servicemember In Joint Speech to Congress” record? What kind of person could possibly think that would matter to anyone? Oh, right — Donald Trump would.

And he’s very happy, because I think he just broke a record,” referring to the length of the ovation.

That is the exact point where I uttered an expletive and shut it off. I was mildly interested in what he might say up to the point where he started claiming that the Yemen adventure was a success. He then went off the rails into areas that displayed his complete lack of decency.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

The Shameless Expediency of President Trump’s Address to Congress
Trump, looking satisfied, seemed to refer to the amount of time that the applause had lasted when he said, “Ryan is looking down right now. You know that. And he’s very happy, because I think he just broke a record.” With that last reference to the way measures of popularity can make a person happy, Trump did seem to remember who he was. And so might the rest of us.

And I am 100% sure that 45 went to bed that night thinking, "That was my applause. That was my record. I am so awesome for giving that dead SEAL credit for my applause. I am the best war president ever."
