Trump ‘Bombshell’ II: Michelle Hates Barry, Wanted A Divorce

  donald trump loves divorce guys

there's a reason we used a brown egg and not a white one

We revealed earlier that Donald Trump will probably tell us all that Barack Obama was the Kenyan Ricky Ross tomorrow, but there is a second, equally credible bombshell that Donald Trump will also probably embarrassingly reveal to absolutely no impact tomorrow: the Obamas once considered divorcing.

With his trademarked humility and circumspection, Donald Trump recently boasted he’s about to announce huge news about President Obama, and one rumor has already been reported: “Douglas Kass, a Florida-based investor who appears on CNBC’s talkshow ‘Squawkbox’ where Trump is often a commentator, tweeted to his 48,000 followers: ’High above the Alps my Gnome has heard that Donald Trump will announce that he has unearthed divorce papers between the Prez and his wife.’”

Michelle reportedly thought [Obama's 2000 Congressional campaign] was a bad idea, and a new book, Ed Klein’s The Amateur, claims that the stress of the defeat and resulting debt brought the couple to the brink of divorce.

In his book, Klein cites a friend of Michelle Obama who says, “Michelle actually had divorce papers drawn up.” Could those papers have been sitting in some file cabinet all these years? Could Trump’s people have somehow gotten a copy of them?

So, during a difficult time, Michelle Obama might have wanted to divorce Barack, but then didn’t, and now they’re the fucking Huxtables.

This utter humanization of attractive black people with perfect children is sure to sink Barack Obama’s campaign. We’re really hoping that the bombshell is something much less objectionable, like Barack Obama masturbating furiously onto pictures of 9/11 then sending cellphone pics to Jeremiah Wright.

    Hey, if BarryO could phony up a birth certificate, how hard is it to get a lawyer's letterhead and phony up a separation letter or some such?

  2. Tundra Grifter

    This bombshell blows up in Multiple-Choice Miffed face. Donald Chump channels Duh Gov' and tries to make a major event all about himself.

    This is good news for Mr. Obama.

  3. mrpuma2u

    Thank goodness the Donald is defending the institute of marriage, which he clearly believes in, as he has reaffirmed those beliefs again and again and again….

    1. freddymcmurray

      Just like grandpappy R-Money, except he didn't have to get divorces in between his reaffirmations.

  4. edgydrifter

    By staying together and working through their issues, the Obamas are making a mockery of traditional divorce.

    1. teebob2000

      I know what they're talking about now: gay marriage WILL increase the number of divorces. Because then there'll be gay divorces.

      1. Lascauxcaveman

        There used to be an expression "gay divorcee" but it just meant a straight divorced lady out looking for a good time.

        Those really were simpler days, weren't they?

        1. James Michael Curley

          But were they?

          In Bringing Up Baby with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn (1938) the story line has him walking around in her very feminine bathrobe.

          Mrs. Random: Well, you look perfectly idiotic in those clothes.
          David Huxley: These aren't my clothes.
          Mrs. Random: Well, where are your clothes?
          David Huxley: I've lost my clothes!
          Mrs. Random: But why are you wearing *these* clothes?
          David Huxley: Because I just went gay all of a sudden!

          And an earlier use (1920 ish) is in the story "Miss Furr & Miss Skeene" by Gertrude Stein.
          Quite often also with references to things like 'being together and being gay'. But no overt sexual descriptions.

      1. UnholyMoses

        This.

        The Mrs and I have considered it twice, but came out stronger each time.

        So, yeah. Typically traditional.

      2. PugglesRule

        Possibly not. I'm sure my DH has considered it at least once, and I know I have. We've had a few occasions (okay, years) where everything seemed to go wrong between us, but we managed to stick them out. Seriously, if everyone in the USA who ever "considered" divorce was interviewed, the line would stretch from the Oval Office to Kansas City. I read a great tidbit recently about a very old couple who'd been married 70 years. Someone asked, "What's the secret of your long marriage?" The elderly husband replied, "Nobody left."

      1. sullivanst

        I saw a +396 once, from an irregular commenter, which led to her having like 165p, although strangely that comment is no longer in her history and she's now got a mere-mortal pness.

  5. Barbara_

    I am sure that Melania Trump would never want a divorce. I am sure that she would much prefer to be a widow.

    1. BadKitty904

      I'm pretty sure Melanoma wishes she was a widow already. That girl's earnin' a mighty hard dollar…

      1. Lascauxcaveman

        Maybe she should form a support group with Calista, Rush's wife, all their exes, and Trump's etc. They'd have to have a pretty big meeting space.

  6. elviouslyqueer

    Due to a potent (if fortuitous) combination of bananas and Greek yogurt for lunch, I plan on giving exactly no shits about this news.

    1. weejee

      Truly appreciate that input eq.

      Mrs. weejee and I are oldes, and oldes do have cliche conversation topics. That said, we have made a solemn vow to each other that when we start talking about our pooping habits we will simply shoot each other.

  7. BadKitty904

    Truly, this is PROOF POSITIVE of how far the Kenyan Usurper lags behind red-blooded AMERICAN Defenders of Marital Sanctity, like Trump, Gingrich, Limbaugh, et al.

  8. Dr_Zoidberg

    My god! You mean…a married couple under stress were acting like a married couple under stress?!!

      1. sullivanst

        Oh grief, knowing Trump, there's a substantial chance that it really could be the "hey his wedding ring proves he's moooooooozlim" utter BS. That's the kind of unbelievably lame crap he deals in.

        1. Toomush_Infer

          Well, doesn't he have to do something like stamp his feet, twirl around three times and sprinkle fairy dust while saying "I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you", before he can proceed to the stoning?…(I'm so bad on religious observances, Muslin or other)…

  9. MinAgain

    That's the best Trump's got? I feel the need to point out that the Right's darling, Ronald Reagan, was divorced from his first wife.

    1. TribecaMike

      Ironically for the patron saint of union busting, Jane Wyman cited her husband's "distracting" Screen Actors Guild duties as her main reason for seeking a divorce.

        1. Toomush_Infer

          Other than Jane, who (I'm told) was known as the Hollywood Queen of B.J.'s, and that's saying a lot….

    2. BadKitty904

      And married Nancy because of his pure, undying love for her and her total lack of a gag reflex…

    3. rmjagg

      and married his second one cause she was preggers . that would be nancy , former bj queen of hollywood ….

  10. LibertyLover

    No wonder Bamz is against enforcing the DOMA…. it makes (multiply-) divorced people so unlikeable.

  11. Callyson

    So, they had some marital issues and almost broke up, but then worked things out and stayed together? Oh yeah, he's definitely losing the election now.

    /FFS

  12. EnnuiThereYet?

    Barack Obama has only had one wife. Real Americans have at least two or three. Just ask Donald Trump, Newt Gingrich, John McCain or Ronald Reagan.

    1. Dudleydidwrong

      Don't forget that exemplar of marital fidelity, Rush Limpballs who is (pardon the expression) on his fourth wife. If you can find her under there, ask her if she's happy.

  13. BoatOfVelociraptors

    Trump is the kind of guy that would divorce his wives and send his companies into bankruptcy before he divorced the notion that he has hair.

  14. SayItWithWookies

    Since it's already public knowledge it definitely qualifies as Trump's bombshell — but knowing The Donald, I'm guessing it's something completely harebrained and out of left field, like that Obama was actually hit by a car in 1967 and replaced by Paul McCartney.

  15. natl_[redacted]_cmdr

    So two people in a long-term relationship once hit a rough patch? Shocking, I tell you! Shocking! Where are my pearls?!?!?

  16. docterry6973

    Naw, I am going with the Obama sells drugs story. Even Trump isn't a big enough hypocrite to bring up divorce papers as a scandal. He isn't, right?

  17. Tequila Mockingbird

    Well, if there's one person who knows the sanctity of marriage, it's Donald Trump and his lovely wife [insert name here].

      1. 102415

        Awwww wanna just pinch his little face buy him some ice cream mail him some more monez and vote for him.

  18. Tequila Mockingbird

    Hey, you guys, do you think maybe Trump is doing this as a publicity stunt? It's just a theory I have.

    1. Negropolis

      I would be crushed, absolutely crushed, to find out that the man he plates anything of any worth he's ever owned in gold and who names every one of his properties after himself would be so self-aggrandizing and cynical.

  19. DemonicRage

    The fact that a man with orange cotton candy fuzz on his head in the shape of a dead squirrel lives here in USA almost makes the 2012 – 2016 Presidency not worth having. Who wants to be the President of the world's biggest (fill in blank with your favorite very bad word)?

        1. SorosBot

          Trump's problem is that he's all out of love, what is he without 'bam; he can't be too late to say that he was so wrong

    1. Dashboard Buddha

      Since I have become an adult, I have seen fear become a commodity. Trump is all about commodity.

  20. MissTaken

    I wouldn't trust any couple together 20+ years who didn't seriously contemplate divorce at least once.

    1. VodkaGoGo

      Why stop at divorce? If you've never once for a split-second thought about murdering your spouse, there's something wrong with you.

      1. calliecallie

        Or planning your own disappearance, staged to look like murder, so the spouse will 1) take the fall or 2) always wonder what happened.

      1. SorosBot

        Don't worry; if we ever start fighting, it will all completely be you other commenters' fault, and we would be getting along perfectly well if it wasn't for you.

    1. TribecaMike

      Actually it was the Weekly World News with a National Enquirer taped to the front to hide the fact, but yeah.

      1. Jukesgrrl

        I've seen headlines like that for more than a year on multiple rags as I wait in the supermarket check out line. Trump's not exactly behind the eight ball, is he?

  21. another kiwi

    What are we make of serial divorcee trump publishing a second hand account of a marriage going through a tough time? I'm torn between "Demented wanker" and "egoist blows himself in public"

  22. JackObin

    Want to hear something even more startling? Twit Romney is a mormon. If that doesn't disturb all the fatties, nothing will.

  23. bloggingbalkanistan

    No snark: this story actually make me like & respect Hopey & FLOTUS even more. They're not perfect, but by all accounts they have a good marriage, they love and respect each other and by all accounts they are good parents. When they allegedly had trouble in their marriage they worked out their problems.

    Although seriously, if the Obamas ever do get a divorce, I'd happily go lesbian for Michelle.

  24. Tequila Mockingbird

    Trump's ego is so huge, when he's screwing a supermodel, he closes his eyes and pretends he's jerking off.

    1. Designer_Rants

      That's what Trump's crack team of investigators in Hawaii are unearthing!!! They're definitely not just getting free extended tropical vacations from a half-ret@rded and serially bankrupt teevee "personality".

    1. PugglesRule

      Next up: Joe Biden made the car crash so his wife and daughter would die!!

      Seriously, these people will try anything.

  25. dawgeral

    Please. The Donald's "hair" doesn't even remotely resemble anything in nature. It's "Living Dynel" (at best) and probably has a name in the magazine where he got it like "BRUCE" or "WILHEM". It's Permanent-Press, Drip-Dry, Scuff-Resistant, Fire-Retardant and has a half-life of 600,000 years, "but it's so natural even I was fooled".

  26. Humberto_Echo

    Donald Trump's head reminds me of John Waters close up of a sweaty ginger ball sack – that smells of ear wax.

  27. Chet Kincaid_

    We already knew that they fought over his political ambitions and his time away from home while in office in Illinois, back in 2008 when we learned everything there is to know about all of the Obamas.

    1. SorosBot

      But who cares that Obama's personal life was investigated to much greater detail than any other President in the history of ever, he wasn't vetted!

    2. viennawoods13

      Why no, he wasn't properly vetted, unlike that perfectly charming woman from Alaska who- oops! turned out to have a pregnant, unwed teen daughter.

      But that was different.

  28. Incitefully_Joe

    Wait, I'm confused. I thought the whole thing about Conservative Social Values was about shaming women into staying in relationships and not divorcing (even in cases where those relationships are, say, terribly abusive, which was SUCH a FUN subtext to pick up on from Quayle, back when I was a young child and my parents had divorced on account of horrible abuse).

    If this is true (which it's coming from Trump, so doubt it), it says that Michelle and Barry ran into a rough time, including the financial difficulties underlying most divorces, and Michelle DID stay with him. Has that ever been Trump's MO? What about other Conservative Social Warriors, like Gingrich, Sanford, Ensign, or Vitter? Am I missing something here, or what?

    More to the point, tough, Trump's an idiot. Yes, it would be a really great idea, a few days before the election, to "drop" a "bombshell" that the Obamas struggled financially a while back, and TOTALLY UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT MIDDLE-CLASS FINANCIAL SECURITY IS FOR KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER, having lived through it themselves.

    Yeah, I don't see any way Obama could spin that.

    1. mille derps

      "Yeah, I don't see any way Obama could spin that."

      You're right. Obama should go ahead & deliver his concession speech now.

  29. obfuscator2

    this story is complete bullshit. kenyan sharia law strictly forbids the wife from divorcing the husband unless the wife's father compensates the husband with a fatted calf and one year of the nfl package on the dish network.

    1. Generation[redacted]

      Why do you think she's been working so hard in the White House garden these past 3 years? It all fits together!!

  30. Generation[redacted]

    I see a future where President Mittens appoints this hairpiece to be our ambassador to the UN.

    1. Gleem McShineys

      So it has less to do with Obama, and more that Trump is trying to send a message to his current wife: "Look, stay, and you never know — you could just become the FLOTUS!"

  31. chascates

    Pick up your copy of The Trump Truthiness at a supermarket checkout aisle! Coming soon: Donald's meeting with Sasquatch!

  32. Doktor Zoom

    Yeah, that is such a shocking revelation that the strain on their marriage caused by the loss is alluded to ten minutes into the Frontline program that aired a couple weeks back.

  33. Detesticle

    Whenever I come across damaging information about someone, I always alert the press that I will release that information in the future, sometime, after a delay of no reason whatsoever.

  34. sullivanst

    My bet is the surprise will be, just like at the RNC, that there's no surprise, Trump just wanted to talk about his yooj ratings for Celebrity Desperentice, the most obnoxious show in primetime. Also, two hours? Go fuck yourself Donald. Oh, you already were, it's hard to tell on account of your penis cannot be seen without magnification.

  35. TribecaMike

    My unimpeachable sources, aka the voices in my head, inform me that the bombshell involves a socket wrench, a lumpy sofa, and a Piqua, Ohio petting zoo. Fingers crossed.

  36. poorgradstudent

    Off-topic, kind of, but am I the only one who might have a nervous breakdown over the fact that Romney and Ryan stand a chance at all of winning? I might not agree with Obama on a lot of things, but the idea of the country I'm living in getting at least four years of an empty suit and a guy whose ideology is to economics what Scientology is to philosophy makes me physically ill.

    It doesn't help knowing that Romney and Ryan are certainly the leaders this country deserves.

    1. Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Yes, but think of the jokes we can make, and the fact that there is no way Romney can do what he claimed he wants to do without pissing off at least 65% of the country. There is always a silver lining.

      1. sullivanst

        the fact that there is no way Romney can do what he claimed he wants to do

        You should've stopped there, because arithmetic.

    2. Self-Uploader

      There's a cure for this. It's not too late. Get on a bus, train, plane or automobile. Go to Ohio (or any state-in-play) and get out the vote. Really, great way to meet nice people and see the country. (No food allowance, but they'll find you a place to stay).

    3. Negropolis

      Look at the early voting numbers in the swing states, and they will bring you off the ledge. Hell, even a cursory look at the electoral colleg map will allay some fears. This thing is not nearly as close as the media wants it to be. Whether it's a good or bad thing, popular vote doesn't mean anything.

      BTW, the popular vote is so close because Mitt is running up the score in already red states. He's not expanding the map. Mitt has had weeks to hammer away at his only viable option to 270 (Ohio), and Ohio is the one that has hung the toughest against his onslaught.

      Mitt can still win. But, I guess it's in the same way that McCain could have won. I mean, it's possible, but it's not likely, and it's really not anymore likely than prior to the first debate if you really look at the numbers. So Mitt got some undecideds off the fence in already Red States. Big whoop. Mitt's running up the score in the South. I mean, it'd be nice for us to compete there if only to show our Southern Dem friends some love, but it's absolutely not necessary either for the president or for Romney, really.

  37. chascates

    This is still the best bullshit Obama story of all and it involves Michelle. From last year, and appearing all over the rightwingosphere:

    The internet was buzzing this week with video of First Lady Michelle Obama apparently showing extreme disrespect to the American flag at a ceremony in honor of the victims of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. As police and firefighters fold the flag to the sound of marching bagpipers, a skeptical looking Mrs. Obama leans to her husband and appears to say, “all this just for a flag.” She then purses her lips and shakes her head slightly as Mr. Obama nods.

    Appears to say. The long form birth certificate. The 'Muslim' ring. If a few people believed this horse shit it would be one thing. That almost half do is evidence we don't deserve to be that 'shining city on a hill'.

  38. ChickTract_Fil_A

    And judging by that little peck on the cheek from Ann last night tells me Willard's in the doghouse too.

    1. Dudleydidwrong

      Did you say that Ann said that Willard Mitt has a little pecker? It must be true because it is on the Intertubes and I read it there.

    2. Jukesgrrl

      I'm glad she knows who to blame when she doesn't get to move into the WHITE House. Thousands of people have told her she "looks like what a First Lady is supposed to look like" and goddamit, she's ENTITLED. Her six other houses AREN'T ENOUGH!

    3. Biel_ze_Bubba

      This is bad news for Mitt: In the Romney household, it's a short trip from the doghouse to the roof of the car.

  39. stly92

    Shouldn't the fact that trump went all in on birtherism discredit him? Oh, what am I saying, that would require the people of America to have discernment and memory. Trump knows they don't. Guess that's why he's a billionaire and I'm part of the 47%. (Disabled with crippling agoraphobia and other mental conditions, waiting for SS to kick in.)

    1. MissTaken

      Nope, the birtherism gives him wingnut street cred. The wear their stupidity like a badge of courage.

    2. natl_[redacted]_cmdr

      May I suggest Sara Benincasa's book Agorafabulous! If nothing else it will make you laugh and feel less alone.

      You are not alone.

      Be well.

    3. Negropolis

      The president being black is the only thing that gives Donald even a shred of credibility. If people don't remember, this guy was a laughing stock to just about everybody back before November 2008. He'd slightly resurrected himself with The Apprentice, but no one would have taken his opinions on political issues as being serious had we elected anyone else.

  40. glamourdammerung

    I have not seen the NRO this desperate since the last time someone outed a white supremacist in their staff.

  41. sullivanst

    Actually, there's one thing Trump could say that'd really hurt Obama: that he endorses him. That could be a game changer, folks!

  42. Humberto_Echo

    OK. here's the story, Obama, after having left Michelle, tried to sign Camilla Paglia's boob following a particularly saucy reading of Sexual Personae. She refused by kicking him in the nuts. He returned to his wife. The Republic remains in tact.

    1. prommie

      I have gone over a year without seeing the name "Camille Paglia," and now you have gone on ruined it, fucking goddamn, man, you know what I mean? You ruined it, I have to fucking start over to get back to where I can forget she exists.

  43. Chow Yun Flat

    NRO guy is such a dolt. He complains that the President's successful campaign against Jack Ryan (banker who made a zillion bucks then quit to teach in the Chicago public schools, looked like a Kennedy and was married to and divorced from Jeri "Seven of Nine" Ryan) was made easier when the salacious details of the divorce were made public by the Chicago Tribune.

    The huge difference, of course, is that the Ryan divorce had gone through the courts and been sealed at the request of both parties before the Trib made it public while the Obama divorce papers seem to never have seen the inside of courthouse.

  44. BlueStateLibel

    The best thing I ever read about Donal Trump was something he wrote in the '90s. The NY Times had published a photo of him, and he wrote a letter to the editor complaining that the photo made him look heavier than he is. On my sacred Wonkette honor, I'm swear I'm not making this up, only wish I could find the damn letter in digital.

  45. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Unless this involves a live video freed of Obama having sex with some random dude for crack while Michelle watches them while reading the Communist Manifesto, I am going to be extremely disappointed.

  46. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Here's the thing, if Romney can't control his minions from embarrassing him two weeks before the election, imagine what it will be like if he is elected and Trump is demanding his pound of flesh?

    1. docterry6973

      That is one thing I don't worry about. Anyone who trusts Romney's promises and expects Romney to deliver on them is gonna end up with a handful of hobo beans and a sneer.

  47. Biel_ze_Bubba

    What's truly pathetic is that Donnie's ego is so fragile that he's still butthurt from when Bamz roasted him at the Correspondents' Dinner last April. You have to wonder how many millions he's spent scouring the planet for something — anything — to get even with.
    BTW, you know it's pathetically small potatoes when he feels the need to pre-announce the announcement, in order to get it noticed at all.

  48. rocktonsam

    as per usual, Trump tries to get people all excited about something BIG and as per usual

    meh….

      Stop it, just stop it, your scaring me, and I'm already insanely paranoid:

      Christian Taliban Buy A Cobag

      "AFA plans to turn out the vote by way of a massive database, which will multiply their own 8,000 contacts by more than six times to almost 50,000. Mining this data, which contains personal information, means “much, much more information than we’ve ever had in terms of what are their passions, and what districts they’re in, and what motivates them,” according to Minnery. The data was purchased at a national conference for social conservative groups. Minnery described being approached about purchasing a huge voter database."

  50. Woodshedding

    Are you sure the bombshell won't be the fact that the Barry doesn't have a son who's supplying the voting machines to the swing states?

  51. prommie

    Well it damn sure looks like I will never be president. But thats aight, I found a much better gig.

  52. prommie

    Trump is just a bust-out artist. Fuck him. Oh and you know what, cause I met this walking bag of shit, he fucking smells, he is a stinky-ass motherfucker.

  53. malsperanza

    So, Trump's idea of how to deliver the election to Romney is to remind voters of what a wonderful family the Obamas are? That their marriage has survived extreme pressures intact, and without an oppressive religious fundamentalism to keep them in line?

    Good God, why is this man not the GOP's chief strategist?

  54. Negropolis

    Wait, haven't the Obamas been pretty up front about the fact that Barack's early career in politics put a pretty severed strain on the marriage? I've heard Michelle mention it on more than one occassion with the lesson being that they stuck it out and are stronger for it.

    Speaking of strained marraiges, how many more miles/years does Melanomia have on her before The Donald decideds to trade her out for a later model?

  55. Negropolis

    BTW, Gloria Allred is brewing up something vicious, and unlike them, something consequentially true, so they are sending out their carnival barker. Ain't gonna' work.

    1. finallyhappy

      Yeah , I read that- something about a case in Boston involving RMoney. Have I mentioned here( yes) that Gloria and I attended the same High school where Rev. wright's mom was our vice primcipal( ok , possibly not when Gloria was a student- but when I was)

  56. Barrelhse

    I would like to thank Donald for making the Romney campaign look so devoid of any substance, just in case anyone missed that fact.

  57. ibwilliamsi

    Is anyone shocked that a couple married 8 years with two young children who have just gone through a very public defeat might consider a divorce? Good for them for working on it and sticking together! It's not as easy to stay married as people seem to think, even under the BEST of circumstances.

    But Donald Trump complaining that someone else worked out a rough patch in their marriage? Who gives a shit what this three timer thinks?

  58. ttommyunger

    Trump comes to mind every morning after my coffee as I head to the crapper, saying to myself: this is going to be HUGE!

      Tommy, you sell yourself short. What you do after your coffee is much more important to the world's good order than anything–anything–Donald Trump has done or ever will do.

    No one say anything about Ann Romney though. Bringing their private lives into it is inappropriate.

    I've got a bombshell of megalithic proportions….hear ye! hear ye! Andrew Breitbart is STILL dead! Sorry…I just love posting that.

    By the way…I saw that "Hope and Change" docu-thing written by "the Undefeated" (snigger) author and bankrolled by Citizens United. What made me laugh about it was these supposed 'Democrats' who supported Obama…er, the Democrat party, always a dead giveaway were accusing him of EXACTLY the same crap Republicans say, amazing! It was a really classy affair…he's a communist, the debt is all his fault, he's not doing anything to get people to work (and EVERY 'democrat' wanted him to get rid of unemployment) and Obamacare…yeah, probably shouldn't have tried to pass that when AHP-bankrolled GOP opposition said no. Also, apparently the political divisions are all his fault (one of the 'Democrats' said this while without a hint of irony a glory shot of droves of teabagger signs (very bitter ones, too…) were shown to uplifting music)…most hilarious pile of bullshit ever. I loved the part about Boehner bitching about 'lack of time' and transparency on the healthcare bill..this from a guy who'd drop off 3,000 page'd legislation on a Friday and force a vote on Monday (not to mention the passing out tobacco lobby checks on the house floor). It would be so cute if it wasn't full of obvious and convenient Wingnesia on well…everything. They even hit the 'apology tour' bullshit…and these 'democrats' were pretending Barry was "weak" for telling the world he wasn't a fucking moron like Dubya, priceless!

    The theme is "Things That are Uncomfortable to Discuss". Absolutely nothing motivates a wide spectrum of voters as much as being reminded of divorces, marital strains and lawyering-up. For his next trick, Donald will discuss dead or missing pets, Mom's slow fade into dementia and that time you were poor and had to sell plasma for tampons.

    Have a terrific day!

    EDIT – Less cynical me would hope that Trump's big pee-filled water balloon is a stunt, kind of like the way his game show manufactures cliffhangers as a way to cut for a commercial break. But the truth is he just wants to make everyone feel bad. He's made such an ass of himself, damaged his brand, and now he wants the POTUS and FLOTUS, and all the Hopey Changey lot of us to feel shitty too.

    Hey, I'm late to this (been working). I am sure I am the first male Wonker to say, hey, Shelly, I'm totally down with you. (I am so joking, but am not willing to do the scrolling).

    Totally OT, but has Reuters always been so incredibly biased? Maybe, I've just never really paid attention, but I've noticed since the Obama presidency them printing stuff ridiculously critical of the administration, like Fox News cartoonishly critical, but using a higher vocabulary, and with the protection of being under a more respected banner.

      There's a few news organizations whose branding relies upon a reputation for utter neutrality, with no sign that a human author is involved in the production of the news items. AP was one of these companies, Reuters another (though furrin' so less American). Similarly too, but a bit less so, PBS/NPR. Christ cadets have made it one of their missions to subsume each of these organizations under their umbrella via strategic placing of pod people. They're doing a good job with that!

    I would really like to punch Donald Trump in the face. Not being funny, just stating a fact.
