Donald Rumsfeld On Facebook, Wants To Be On ‘America’s Next Top Model’

by Jack Stuef

Both really good at torture.Donald Rumsfeld’s long career of public service is over and now he, like any retired grandparent/war criminal, spends a lot of time on The Facebook. For example: “I met Tyra Banks last night in Hollywood. She probably wouldn’t have to twist my arm to be a guest judge on America’s Next Top Model.” Yeah, Donald Rumsfeld made a career out of making poor decisions in the Middle East and torturing people, but his true love is FASHION. Also: “Believe it or not I just got an iPad. Now I need my 13 year old grandson to show me how to work it.” But Donald Rumsefeld isn’t just Fashion Grandpa. He is Fashion Grandpa With a Dark Past. So he’s posted a weird video Saddam Hussein gave him as a gift.

The U.S. giving support to Saddam Hussein? LIKE.
It’s not like Donald Rumsfeld has a little box stashed away of love letters and little knickknacks from his torrid affair with Saddam Hussein and knows the exact date of each item he received from him or anything. (This video: female soldiers biting off the heads off snakes as a crowd cheers. Umm, thanks, Saddam!)

The funnyman's people did kill Jesus.
Fashion Grandpa really loves meeting all his new friends on The Facebook. His goodness!

A poor man's Steve Brule
Rumsfeld also posts “Rumsfeld Rules” like he’s a more masculine Confucius or something. Rumsfeld Rule: Wait at least 30 minutes after eating before you waterboard.

Soul sisters.
Laaaaaaadies! They love Fashion Grandpa, oh yeah. They love him in their vaginas.

Internet high five, Erick!
Oh yeah? What word was that? “Peace”? “Discretion”? “Scrutinize”? “Death”? [Facebook]

Has Lou Sarah friended him yet?

Sophist[ArsPunetica] March 9, 2011 at 12:14 pm

No, but some guy named Henry Donald really seems to like him.

CrankyLttlCamperette March 9, 2011 at 12:11 pm

And now I can't get that "I'm not your daddy, I'm your granpaw" song from the Geico commercial outta my head…

Barbara_i March 9, 2011 at 12:11 pm

They love Fashion Grandpa, oh yeah!
He should market his own cologne that smells like the cross between torture and the lining of your grandmother's purse.

I cut out the middle-man & extract the essence of my Werther's Originals & make my own perfume.

The ladies love the Donald? Which Donald?

"Death has a tendency to encourage a depressing view of America's Top Model."

freakishlywrong March 9, 2011 at 12:15 pm

Can you post on The Facebook from prison?

harry_palmer March 9, 2011 at 12:15 pm

He is the very model of a modern major asshole.

MinAgain March 9, 2011 at 12:16 pm

What word was that?

Disgrace?

CliveWarren March 9, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Since he learned it from RedState it must have something to do with goats and creepy musings about sex with minors…

Given a choice between putting Donald Trump or Donald Rumsfeld in the Quisinart on "Blend," I would have to vote for a bigger blender.

Lascauxcaveman March 9, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Shit smoothie.

CliveWarren March 9, 2011 at 12:17 pm

"Hey, Tyra! This war criminal wants to have a picture taken with you."

"Sure!"

"Hey, View-Ladies! Torture Master General is asking if you'd like to plug his book!"

"Why, certainly!"

ttommyunger March 9, 2011 at 12:17 pm

There's no torturing war criminal like an old torturing war criminal. Thinking of him with a child on his lap makes my nuts cross over.

Texan_Bulldog March 9, 2011 at 12:18 pm

Next up: Dancing with the Stars where he has the other contestants water boarded if they score higher than him.

gef05 March 9, 2011 at 1:26 pm

Or lower.

SorosBot March 9, 2011 at 12:19 pm

It's bad enough getting a friend request from your grandfather, it must be really embarrassing getting it when he's an internationally known and reviled war criminal. I'd accept a friend request from Charles Manson over Rumsfeld.

Badonkadonkette March 9, 2011 at 12:20 pm

She probably wouldn’t have to twist my arm to be a guest judge on America’s Next Top Model.

Maybe…but to be on the safe side, she should probably just waterboard you.

Sophist[ArsPunetica] March 9, 2011 at 12:20 pm

My prediction: he'll get America's Next Top Model involved in an intractable war with Project Runway and then receive the Presidential Medal of Fashion for his invaluable service to the nation.

BlueStateLibel March 9, 2011 at 12:23 pm

…and get 20 models killed at a cost of $300 billion.

LionelHutzEsq March 9, 2011 at 12:50 pm

So we agree: A win, win situation.

cheaphits March 9, 2011 at 4:51 pm

Yeah, except that it will go on for at least ten years.

V572625694 March 9, 2011 at 12:24 pm

Wonkette, it looks like you've been punked.

Captain_Quark March 9, 2011 at 12:24 pm

John Galliano is available, too. Maybe he and Rumsfeld can team up and bring some class to Tyra's little fashion show.

jus_wonderin March 9, 2011 at 12:25 pm

Donald Rumsefeld. That name has the ring of sex offender, doesn't it?

Sophist[ArsPunetica] March 9, 2011 at 12:29 pm

We do know of certain knowledge that Donald Rumsfeld is either a sex offender, or not a sex offender, or dead.

DaRooster March 9, 2011 at 12:27 pm

Doesn't he know that Tyra is a brown? Really gonna piss off his "base".

Weenus299 March 9, 2011 at 12:27 pm

As long as he wears a Donna Karan suicide bomb vest, I'm OK wit it.

user-of-owls March 9, 2011 at 12:29 pm

Rumsfeld won't last long as a judge. He'll always vote for the Iraqi corpse or the hooded guy with electrodes attached to his genitals.

harry_palmer March 9, 2011 at 12:30 pm

Beware of ideas sold as bold, exciting, innovative, and new."

Isn't that exactly what he set out to do at the DoD? He laughed at old ideas like we'd need more troops, or don't start a land war in Asia, or torture is against everything we stand for …

Buckminster March 9, 2011 at 12:31 pm

Ugh! Another reason to hate facebook.

SayItWithWookies March 9, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Beware of ideas sold as "bold,innovative, exciting, and new"? Like the total transformation of the military that Rummy was going to implement when he became SecDef and spent the first nine months of his administration muscling grumbling generals out of the way over?

Rosie_Scenario March 9, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Fashion Grandpa or Fascist Grandpa?

weejee March 9, 2011 at 12:36 pm

Those who are pure in heart can see that Rummy is always wearing his black shirt.

Ducksworthy March 9, 2011 at 12:34 pm

I've been wondering what's wrong with this country. Turns out its Ernie Perkins.

Monsieur_Grumpe March 9, 2011 at 12:35 pm

I like snakes, not the human kind. I am not pleased to witness those women chomping on live snakes. This makes me hate Rummy just a little bit more and I didn't think that was possible.

Steverino247 March 9, 2011 at 12:39 pm

America, home of the Free Range War Criminal.

Tommmcatt March 9, 2011 at 12:45 pm

As you know, you go on TV with the judges you have, not the judges Donald Rumsfeld might want or wish to have at a later time.

BaldarTFlagass March 9, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Good thing for him they only have upfists on facebook.

MrsBiggTime March 9, 2011 at 1:02 pm

I'd like to up-fist old Rummy, but good.

DerrickWildcat March 9, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Remember when Tyra put on that fat suit and walked around in the normal world looking normal for 3 hours? Yeah it blew her mind that normal people lived that way. She cried and showed empathy towards normal people (her audience) for a little while. She was so inconsolable that she got on her jet and flew to Mallorca for a week just to get herself together. She's one of us.

baconzgood March 9, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Now that Don's all down with the technology has he Napstered Snoopy Snoopy Poop Dog?

LionelHutzEsq March 9, 2011 at 12:53 pm

Yeah, Donald Rumsfeld made a career out of making poor decisions in the Middle East and torturing people, but his true love is FASHION.

From what I hear, there is not that much difference between the two.

However, there is a real chance that the girls on ANTM will greet him as a liberator.

Crank_Tango March 9, 2011 at 12:57 pm

Dreck-i-tude!

SudsMcKenzie March 9, 2011 at 12:59 pm

He is laying the groundwork for his invasion of Farmville.

MrsBiggTime March 9, 2011 at 1:01 pm

Great, now I'm going to have to put up with his FarmVille updates: "Donald ran over a bunch of ducklings with his tractor! Donald just traded weapons for fertilizer!"

MathIsHard March 9, 2011 at 3:28 pm

'Donald lost his cow! Can you help him find it by waterboarding the farmhands?"

Extemporanus March 9, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Donald Rumsfeld should friend a page of lightly-salted poison rat dicks.

prommie March 9, 2011 at 1:06 pm

This is how Hitler wished he could spend his golden years, dandling children on his lap, writing his memoirs, fondly reminiscing about his crimes to an adoring and greatful Nation.

andrewdrinker March 9, 2011 at 1:06 pm

He's so hip, I bet he listens to that Enema Man and Snoopy Poopy Poop Dog.

SorosBot March 9, 2011 at 1:08 pm

Just saw a headline (no story yet) on MSNBC.com that we don't have David Broder to kick around anymore.

andrewdrinker March 9, 2011 at 1:25 pm

But this is Wonkette! We'll kick around his dead corpse if it pleases us!

Just look at how we treat Zombie Reagan!

SmutBoffin March 9, 2011 at 1:08 pm

This Saddam fellow sounds like a bad-ass dude and someone who would make a good ally to help protect our interests in the region.

Is he available, do you think?

Tommmcatt March 9, 2011 at 1:14 pm

"Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time passing…"

GodShammgod March 9, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Only the good die young. Like all the soldiers Rumsfeld helped send to their graves.

Callyson March 9, 2011 at 1:12 pm

I can hear Naomi Campbell now…
"What, I got bad press for sitting next to a dictator and Tyra gets away with coddling up to Rumsfeld? At least I got some diamonds out of it…"

BarackMyWorld March 9, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Like Hitler wanted to be a painter, Rumsfeld just wanted be a judge on America's Next Top Model.

(Note to wingnuts: not calling Rumsfeld a dictator or a Nazi/fascist. I am, however, calling him a warmonger.)

freakishlywrong March 9, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Be careful there, don't wanna get fired from NPR!

andrewdrinker March 9, 2011 at 1:14 pm

Watching Rachel Maddow again, pinko?

(Yeah, I watched it too. :-P)

hagajim March 9, 2011 at 1:15 pm

If Rummy is on America's Top Model and one of the models is sent home….does he blow them away with an RPG? That would be unique.

Guppy06 March 9, 2011 at 1:19 pm

Gee, isn't that exactly how he sold "shock and awe?"

outragedcitizen March 9, 2011 at 1:29 pm

I just hate it when the Olds get on Facebunk or Twatter and try to be hip.

mrblifil March 9, 2011 at 1:34 pm

When does his triumphant book tour hit Fallujah?

LouBristol March 9, 2011 at 1:49 pm

It wld've been nice if Rumsfeld, Saddam, Gaddafi etc worked off their feelings for one another on facebook instead of dropping bombs on random camel grazers.

WigFlipper March 9, 2011 at 2:03 pm

His goodness (is not particularly extensive).

GeorgiaPeachy March 9, 2011 at 2:11 pm

Rumbo proves that no matter how old you get, you still want the pussy.

pinkocommi March 9, 2011 at 2:12 pm

I guess now that Rummy has finished his career as a war criminal he can devote himself to his true passion…. pedophilia.

lulzmonger March 9, 2011 at 3:43 pm

There are known war-criminals & there are unknown war-criminals …

Beware of ideas sold as "bold, innovative, exciting, and new" … like the Geneva Convention or the Magna Carta.

owhatever March 9, 2011 at 3:53 pm

Too bad Rummy didn't have Saddam as a Friend back in the day. They might have texted and avoided the recent unpleasantness.

DahBoner March 9, 2011 at 3:54 pm

Well this is nothing new.

On the morning of September 11, Rummy was pretending to be on SCRUBS instead of being available to give the order to scramble the fleet of F-16's just 10 miles west of the Pentagon….

sezme March 9, 2011 at 4:06 pm

Lizard-man says what?

cheaphits March 9, 2011 at 4:43 pm

Anyone who describes Donald Rumsfeld as "too much fun" has lead a very sheltered life.

cheaphits March 9, 2011 at 4:50 pm

And Charlie offed less than 10 people…most of them indirectly. Rummy's responsible for tens of thousands…probably hundreds of thousands.

The_Great_Gazoo March 10, 2011 at 12:17 am

Dirty old man. Just wants an iPad so he can look at more cock and awe war porn.

Negropolis March 10, 2011 at 1:04 am

Awwww. That picture with Tyra makes him look like an adorable, little grandpa.

Speaking of Tyra, someone needs to bottle her essence, because whatsoever that animates her like that has to be more powerful than meth.

GrippoMarx March 10, 2011 at 9:12 am

Dr. Evil recasting himself as a warm and fuzzy grandpa? Now that's a tough act! "Here Kid, have an butterscotch and let me show ya' this box of skulls once given to me by the ruling junta in Myanmar!"
