He seems nice.
He seems nice.

So here is a thing that happened in yr Wonkette’s fine city of Memphis on Sunday! A guy named Brandon, who is black, decided to go get something to eat near the Wolfchase Galleria mall, and as so often happens in cities with traffic, there was some bullhockey with a white motorist who felt Brandon cut him off. Many road rages ensued, and Brandon decided to pull over and actually try to be nice to the guy, even though he admits that at first, he was kinda pissed off. So he rolled down the window, and the white guy, who says he’s a Trump supporter, came over to the window and proceeded to call Brandon a “nigger” approximately three-thousand-eleventy times. Watch it!

We are not transcribing this. We are going to live-blog it. And we are going to call the Trump-supporting bubba “Bubba” because why not.

0:00 — Bubba gets all up in Brandon’s face through his passenger side window and yells “Trump all the way!”

0:10 — Bubba exclaims that black lives do not matter.

0:43 — Bubba explains that Brandon’s driving makes him a “nigger.”

0:50 — Bubba says black people have to prove that black lives matter, which is … not how that works, but OK!

1:08 — We learn that this Trump-supporting fuckhead is allowed to explain blackness to Brandon, because of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the first episode of “The Boondocks,” which he has seen.

1:20 — Bubba does not care if you put this on Facebook and says he doesn’t have any social media accounts because White Lives Matter. Bubba’s brain may be broken.

1:35 — Bubba’s wife attempts to intervene, and he tells her to let him handle it, and also to “be a woman!” Can you believe this hick racist is sexist too? WHOA MIND BLOWN.

1:44 — Bubba calls Brandon a “nigger” again.

1:55 — Bubba says slavery was bad because “we got ripped off,” because black people “can’t do anything.” Don’t know if he learned that from Dr. King or “The Boondocks,” but probably not.

2:03 — Bubba calls Brandon a “nigger” again. And then again at 2:05. And at 2:07. This guy is REALLY getting everything off his chest!

2:10 — Bubba says “even some white people” and also some Mexicans, are N-words to him. Again with all his totally non-racist #logic.

2:15 — Bubba asks Brandon, “What is the definition of a nigger? Is it a word?” Then he explains what the definition is. It is a very weird definition!

2:45 — Bubba again encourages Brandon to spread the video on social media, because people need to understand that black lives do not matter.

3:10 — Bubba calls Brandon a “fuckin’ transgender faggot,” because OBVIOUSLY. This makes Brandon start giggling, because come on, is this guy for real right now?

3:15 — Bubba grabs his white boy weenus and says “BLM DOESN’T MATTER!” Classic Bubba.

4:09 — Bubba drops one more N-bomb, because why not?

The altercation is now over, and Brandon turns the phone back on his face and says, “That’s exactly why y’all need to get out and VOTE.” Then he made this face:

brandon

Is Brandon your hero now? He is our hero now.

Now, Brandon shared the video on Facebook, where it started to go viral, but Mark Zuckerberg’s li’l website took it down. Luckily, we have that video above!

Also, the point of this post isn’t to ruin Bubba The Stupid Redneck’s life. Social media is already doing that and local media is already showing up at Bubba’s house, and Bubba will probably lose his job, whatever it is. The point is that you can say ALL DAY LONG that Trump’s supporters aren’t cousin-fucking racists, and that he’s tapped into a real “movement” of people who want change. And you’d be right! Many of them are white supremacists, and they want to Make America Great Again by going back to the “good old days” when a white man wasn’t shy about calling a black man a “nigger” to his face. And that’s fucking terrifying.

Our new pal Brandon did an interview with Fox 13 in Memphis and said he forgave this asshole the second he walked away, and that he does not want any harm to come to him. However, he says if the dude loses his job, “I could care less,” noting that that’s just suffering the consequences of your own actions. He adds that the dude’s tirade against him “doesn’t define every person who looks like him,” which is a very clever way of pointing out that white people NEVER are made to feel like they must apologize for the actions of every single member of their race!

Here, watch the interview:

Have you voted for Hillary Clinton yet? Brandon said to vote, so you should go do that, or make your plan for voting tomorrow, okay bye.

    Lemme see if I got this straight – Bubba there believed that Brandon cut him off in traffic, and thus this should permit Bubba to propound for a significant period of time on, as Cliven Bundy put it, his “thoughts about the Negro”?
    I’m pretty sure if the positions were reversed Bubba would not simply sit there and take such a verbal whipsawing.

    • Good_Trouble_Yall

      I was actually somewhat surprised that Bubba didn’t try any violence. He must be on probation and not allowed to carry his penis substitute.

    • Anna Elizabeth

      The racists are worthless, fearful shitstains that only get bold when a bigger, louder Bully takes stage.

      Step One – drown the Bully in Votes. Step Two – Push back against racists. Make them afraid to open their pieholes. Tell your stoopid Uncle to Shut up when he says racist things. Call and complain to corporate sponsors and local business owners when racists and stoopid people cause problems. Boycotts.

    • Spotts1701, The Baddest Hombre

      The same thing we’ve done, what we always do – drown them out. Hold the mirror up and show them for what they are – twisted, warped and broken. And we don’t back down. We carry the same spirit that has been borne by the Suffragettes, the Civil Rights Icons, the people at Stonewall, the ones who didn’t take “no” for an answer. We don’t quit, because the work needs to be done.

  • Jenny, Manocidal Vagendiac

    Don’t even have to press play to know what the moron sounds like.

  • Carpe Vagenda

    Well then. What say you about that, minority voters of FL?

    In a final surge, Florida Democrats stormed early voting polling stations in the Sunday before Election Day and widened their lead over Republicans to 88,000 ballots cast thanks to the strong support of African-Americans and Latinos in the nation’s biggest battleground state.

    The Democrats nearly tripled their Saturday lead thanks to historic voting numbers in just two counties: Miami-Dade and Broward. About 100,000 voters showed up to those two counties Sunday, casting almost 39 percent of the ballots in the 16 counties that held a final day of in-person early voting before Election Day.

    If Hillary Clinton wins Florida — and therefore the presidential race — it will be on the strength of these two urban counties, which form the Miami TV media market along with much-smaller Monroe County in the Florida Keys. In this Hispanic- and black-heavy media market, Democrats have rolled up a nearly 318,000-vote margin over Republicans in total in-person early votes and mail-in absentee ballots.

    • Gayer Than Thou

      Can you be suggesting that it is a bad strategy for a would-be national party to alienate large blocks of voters? If so, you’d think both parties would’ve realized that and campaigned accordingly.

      • laughingnome

        Ideally both parties would court these large blocks of voters with policies that would benefit them. The competition would be good for everyone. Unfortunately one party still thinks it’s 1890.

        • NastyBosGrl

          1790. In 1890, slavery was illegal.

          • Carpe Vagenda

            but it was kind of hard to tell sometimes.

      • Carpe Vagenda

        You raise an interesting point, concerned citizen! Perhaps when telling a large bloc of people who do not (but are eligible to) vote that you intend to turn them into second-class citizens who are legally unequal to ignorant racist trash, you might want not to encourage the ignorant racist trash to behave as though that had already happened.

      • Painter of Goats

        Yeah but it’s so much easier to just holler “It’s rigged!” over and over. It’s also much easier for their base to comprehend.

        I don’t usually hangout in places where folks like him are likely to be. Just glad I don’t recognize him from my neighborhood because if I did, I’d have to share this video with the three black cops who have homes here.

        • anwisok

          Share it with them anyway. I have a feeling that he interacts with police on a semi-regular basis, and one of these days, it could be one of them. Only fair they know who they’re dealing with.

  • rosenbomb

    If any wonkers want an evening of social justice documentary sad-times, watch “13th” on Netflix. The thesis of the documentary is how the United States has reinvented a new version of slavery each time the previous system has failed. We had slavery, followed by convict leasing, followed by lynchings and terrorism, segregation, and most recently the war on drugs. You’ll need some tissues, but it’ll make you even more glad to be on Brandon’s side instead of Bubba’s.

    • The Bird in a Red Pantsuit

      Makes you rethink who actually personifies American exceptionalism.

      • rosenbomb

        Absolutely. As a society we espouse values like freedom and individualism, yet fall short by not allowing those values to apply to everyone equally. I’m glad to be on the side that tries, though.

    A) That’s not the first episode of The Boondocks you fucking redneck, the first episode is the one where Huey tells a bunch of white people that Ronald Reagan was the devil.

    B) The MLK episode ends with the revolution against racist crackers like you finally happening

    • Oily Messiah

      White folks tend to ruin things like the boondocks.

      Huey was right, too.

    • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

      • OrG

        Nah,Dale Jr. wins every once in a while.

        • Anna Rompage

          Even then, that much hate and ignorance is a heavy cross to bear…

        • Arolpin

          I don’t think the racists are big Dale Jr. fans. He’s been in the spotlight for a long time, and I can’t think of anything racially insensitive that he’s ever said, I can’t find anything that might be considered a dog whistle. He’s been in a JayZ video, and he’s done a bit of TV/movie work.
          I think that most of the young drivers in NASCAR (Dale Jr. is not a young driver, but he’s young enough) grew up in a multi-cultural world, and because they are largely public figures from a young age, they know that the cameras are always on and that racist statements are a great way to lose a sponsorship, which basically means you’re going to lose your ride.
          I would say that this idiot would be a Jeremy Clements fan, and since Clements has never won, every day is a bad day for Bubba.

          • OrG

            I didn’t mean to imply that Dale is racist,just his fans.

    So, here’s a thought question. Are guys like Bubba unredeemable?

    • Oily Messiah

      No course not. The challenge is engaging them without getting sucked into the shit.

      • Land Shark Hombre

        Bubba might be a lost cause, but I suspect there’s a lot of Trump supporters who just want to be heard and listened to. It must be bleak to look around and see no opportunities at all. I have been lucky that way.

    • SuffragetteCity4Ever

      My theory is that they have set up some kind of dummy twitter site for him and he thinks he’s tweeting away as usual – blasting his enemies right and left (doesn’t he just shout out his rage thoughts to whatever poor lackey just happens to be nearby anyway? didn’t I read that somewhere?). He is going to be PISSED when he figures out the truth, ho boy!

      • notaten

        I have vague memories of Bon Jovi music at parties in the 80’s? that I seemed to enjoy, mainly because of a woman I had a lust for and now I always remember her when I hear that music. Don’t know if I could name a song from then, though. It was the 80’s, after all.

      • Anna Rompage

        I’m not a fan of his either, but he holds sway over a large, aging group of white lower & middle class ex-rockers, so it’s nice to see him on our side…

      • AnnieGetYerFun

        He was on a couple episodes of 30 Rock. It made me love him.

      • Arolpin

        No. Not even if you live in NJ. I married a Jersey Girl, and we were both very clear that the DJ not play ANY Bon Jovi songs at the wedding reception. Unfortunately the guests really wanted Bon Jovi, so I just gritted my teeth and danced along.
        Jon has been a pretty good progressive supporter since I’ve lived in the area, and he seems to be a good person according to people who know him, so I just decided to chalk his enduring popularity up to a side effect of hair-spray overdoses from the ’80s and hope that he can convince enough South Jersey & PA folks to vote for Hillary.

      I have a feeling we just watched a guy throw everything he has right down the drain. Someone posted a pic of his house (won’t do it) and it seems like he actually has a job, probably even a decent one. This probably won’t end well for white trash dude.

      • Anna Rompage

        No pity at all…

        You reap what you sow, though perhaps if this guy has even the slightest inking of a conscious, this could be his rock bottom, and the time he turns his life around…

        • Juan de Payaso

          Agreed and five bucks says this isn’t the first time he’s pulled something like this. He needs help, ASAP and like you said, sometimes people need to hit rock bottom before getting it. He may hit it soon, depending on his company. I think my company would cut me tomorrow and I belong to a great union. Even they would probably say – “on your own on this one!”

    • Oily Messiah

      Is this actually cover for a complicated plan that involves Bubba eating his parents in chili?

    Sorry to interrupt the fun! Ignore me.

      • HazooToo

        I love you.

    • Nasty Astraea

      I never had to use actual citations because I went straight to the corporate world but I will give it a shot.

      • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

        Yay! And any input is appreciated. Apologies again for hijacking the thread.

        I’m trying to incorporate an Id. reference, but to a different subsection, section 94.0081(c) instead of (a), for example. Would that be Id. (c)? Or Id. (sec symbol) 94.0081(c) – whcih seems almost pointless for an Id. reference?

        • Oily Messiah

          Bluebook, I think the latter

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            I thought so, it’s just a little counterintuitive but then again ALL of this bullshit is. Lol. Since it’s not the point of the assignment and we haven’t learned it, I think I’m fine. Just curious (and obsessive). I’ll keep looking in my citation bible.

            Thanks alls!

          • Oily Messiah

            My law school prof for basic legal skills was an ALWDr. I had to relearn legal citation for law review

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            We use ALWD, which is supposedly Blue Book rewritten in a not blue book…allegedly. I like it, but then again, I don’t know any better.

        • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

          (two cents even though I wasn’t asked)

          I honestly don’t know, though when in doubt just use the full citation. All you’ve wasted is ink if you’re overdoing it, but faulty cites/failure to cite are bad news bears.

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            Excellent point and htanks for the input. Teacher keeps reminding us, the whole point is to help the reader find something.

          • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

            A fun citation tip if you don’t know it (though by now you probably do): if you ever want to research a case real fast, don’t type in the case name. Type in the mid part, the 123 U.S. 456, and it’ll take you right there. Saved me a buttload of time in law school.

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            Aye, this assignment involves state statutes (ann.) but my scholastic version of lexis nexis does that for decisions. Still great tip. Thanks.

          http://mslaw.libguides.com/content.php?pid=500368&sid=4116736

          Looks like you can use Id. (c) according to bluebook.

          • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

            Hmm, it looks like he’d only be able to use Id. (c) if the prior citation was (b), no? Or am I reading that sideways?

          • Nasty Astraea

            I think that it doesn’t matter which subsection it is as long as it’s the same section as the preceeding citation.

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            Aw, you didn’t have to go looking for stuff…I always forget about google. lol.

            Paralegal is kind of a blurry thumbnail of law school.

            Ha! That’s a perfect way to put it. We do substantive law classes, and surprisingly in depth, still I feel like I maybe would know this stuff better if I went to law school. Okay really gotta finish my assignment. Thanks for help friends!

        • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

          I’ll still this in the middle – since there’s so many of us, lol. I had a question about an Id. reference in reply to Astraea. we havne’t learned Id., but I can’t help showing off. ;)

        what makes me think they could be right is that Clinton made a last minute stop there. So her polls must say something’s up.

      Michigan has become a focus because there isn’t early voting. So it technically remains “in play” more than a few other states. Michigan ain’t going Trump.

    • Greg Comlish

      Let’s not fuck around here. The polling models account for some things, but not everything. The polls are not going to account for Hill’s ground game or the effects of Comey’s late exoneration of Hillary, or the Latino wave of early voting. I’m not going to shit on Nate Silver, because I think his model is a well constructed tool, but even Nate will tell you that his model is just a tool, not an oracle. It does not reveal the future. Another tool is predictwise, which aggregates prediction market data: http://predictwise.com/politics/ Predictwise gives Hillary an 89% chance of winning and the Dems a 67% chance of winning the Senate. Tomorrow will likely be a very good day. In the mean time, you can always swing by your local HfA office and volunteer for one last shift if you want to take your mind off this bullshit. Nothing quells the nerves like getting involved.

We look to you to rescue our Republic by breaking the death-grip of the Republican “Do-Nothing” Congress and by voting for the First Woman President of the United States in tomorrow’s election!

  • Carpe Vagenda

    Speaking to the tech sector, candidate said:

    In one of a handful of final campaign rallies
    before Election Day, Donald Trump painted a grim picture of the state of America, saying “the world hates us,” and promising his administration would catalyze a radical transformation of the country.

    “This election will decide whether we are ruled by a corrupt political class—you’re seeing what’s happening, everybody’s watching—or whether we’re ruled by the people,” Trump began in Raleigh, North Carolina on Monday, marking the start of a largely fatalistic final pitch to voters in the state.

    “The failed political establishment has delivered nothing but poverty, nothing but problems, nothing but losses. Nothing but losses, we don’t win anymore as a country,” he said.

    For much of the speech, Trump attempted to tie the mismanagement of foreign policy by “Hillary and her failed establishment” and the economic difficulties of his voters at home.

  • Dolmance

    For those interested, Kurt Eichenwald has been running a marathon Twitter session today detailing the results of his investigation of Trump for Newsweek. So far he’s up to 100 posts.

    Here’s a sample:

          • Carpe Vagenda

            His father bought a lot of local politicians, and by the time they realized that he wasn’t in the same business daddy was he had borrowed too much that he had no means of paying back for them to admit to.

        “Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft where we are hard, and cynical where we are are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is difficult to understand. They think, deep in their hearts, that they are better than we are because we had to discover the compensations and refuges of life for ourselves. Even when they enter deep into our world or sink below us, they still think that they are better than we are. They are different.” GOP in a nutshell

        There would have to be an accumulator-trifecta of every swing state going to Trump, plus a solid blue.
        It shouldn’t be close, what with a fucking fanta-faced nazi running against a lifelong politics wonk, but that’s a problem for after the election. FFS it might actually steel the GOP to go balls-deep with the alt-right derp for 2018 and 2020 – especially if they also control Congress.
        First things first tho – avoid the clean sweep.

        • Bub the Bad Zombre

          If you lie about someone – ANYONE – long enough and loudly enough, you can hamstring them politically. I think Hillary is great, but there is no question that Republican mendacity damaged her electability. But for that, she would be winning by twenty points. Of course, Republican stupidity led to Trump’s rise as well. They set the table for what could have been an easy win, but then allowed their nomination to be hijacked by Donnie.

          Poetic justice.

          • boberiggert

            Also affecting Hillz’s electability is simple misogyny. When she has been IN a position (First Lady, Senator, SecState), her favorables have soared.

            It’s when she’s SOUGHT power that her favorables drop. Fear of woman seeking power.

      • Zippy W Pinhead

        so no Cal Worthington, eh?

    • Juan de Payaso

      That’s why I stopped debating or even discussing the election with Trump supporters at work. I reached the point of, “Yeah, cool story bro. Hillary’s the corrupt one. Trump is saying all the right things, right – gotcha. See ya on Wednesday!”

      • Bub the Bad Zombre

        I had a bit of a meltdown at work with a coworker who is none too bright, a conspiracy theorist who simply parrots every bit of BS he hears that reinforces whatever conclusion he’s already reached. The sort of person who says “well I just think it’s strange” or “we’ll have to agree to disagree” rather than actually THINK about what something means. Anyway, he made a stupid comment about “emails” at the end of a 12 hour shift, and I lost my temper. Loud, (VERY loud) profane expostulations ensued. A table was kicked. People began looking for places to hide. He no longer mentions politics around me, for which I am grateful. I have little patience with stupid people at the best of times…

        • Jeffocaster in the desert

    I was just sitting now on the toilet and it occurred to me that His Orange Turdliness has a golden opportunity during his concession blame speech tomorrow night.

    As he will never, ever again have hundreds of millions of potential suckers listening to his every word, he can, as Donald is nothing if not a used car salesman, make a pitch for not only a new media empire but a new party as well. He can blame the GOP for his loss and then pivot to propose his MAGA Party or whateverthefuck he’ll call it.

    I voted. Prima Momma voted by mail. Alien Brother and his wife voted. I’m going to hand out water and discount candy between phone banking. Calliope Jane “voted” by telling a poll worker what she wanted (or so we tell her).

    for the record: the n-word means “louse” which is why it can’t be subject to “we’re takin’ it back” types of linguistic movements. the f-word still means “a bundle of sticks” because it used to be common practice to round up the LGBTs, tie them in a bundle and burn them. the language is moving forward in the mouth so you should at least be nice to your own vocal system by not using words with double gs in the middle like “rigged”.

    and I have had both “Gideon Wise Man” and “Godgive Gideon” try to friend me on the FacePlant today. what the fuck is up with that?

    Even as his top advisers have mostly succeeded in recent days at keeping Trump on message, the candidate’s off-key ad-libs and freewheeling style continued to distract from the more focused, scripted closing argument aides have prepared and loaded into the teleprompter, one that lashes the “failed political establishment.” Not only did Trump get distracted by a rubber mask of his own visage in the crowd—before long, he was holding the mask up next to his own face on the stage, an image that was immediately circulating over Twitter and the cable TV airwaves—he continued to attack Jay Z and Beyonce at the same time that he is supposedly courting African-American voters.

        If only Hitler had been distracted by shiny objects, history would have been so different.

        • Bub the Bad Zombre

          We can all be grateful that Trump is a far less focused, far less intelligent, far less disciplined monster than Hitler was.

  • If there is anything good that comes out of the Trump campaign, it is that after twenty years of conservatives insisting that they are not racist or homophobic or closet Nazis, that the core of Trump supporters have made it clear that at least 40% of the party is openly racist, homophobic and not-so-closeted Nazis.

    Win or lose tomorrow, what we can best hope for is that the Republican party tears itself apart, with the alt-right and fellow travelers starting their own news channel and party for “true Americans” and the Republican party left to molder on the trash heap of history. If that happens, and it looks likely, we might actually have something good to say about Trump in the end.

    • Barley_Brains

      I have always hope this would be the result of the Trump candidacy.

      • Trump has already alienated half his party. Even if he wins a close election, without the common enemy of Hillary to united the party, they will turn on themselves quickly. As it is, outside giving more money to the military and cutting taxes on the rich, true conservatives and Trumpians have nothing in common. Things fall apart, the center cannot hold.

        • Barley_Brains

          I agree. But I would much rather watch that unfold while Preznit elect HRC is assembling her cabinet.

    • Claire

      I’ve read so many articles this election season with long-time Republicans going “Shit, I guess the Left wasn’t lying after all.” If nothing else, it’s brought some people to that realization.

      The Republican “big tent” is full of bigots and misogynists. Hillary called it, but they aren’t in a basket. I think we should refer to them as the “Deplorable minority.”

      • starkitty

        Meh, to me he looked hyped up, looking for a fight. He really was off footed that our hero didn’t take any bait.

    Here’s an easy way to tell if you are disposed to have bigoted or prejudiced views; if someone cuts you off, or does something that angers you, if your reaction is to single out their sex, race, religion, orientation, etc, and use that as a way to disparage them, then you are a bigot, racist, etc.

    There are many many ways to tell someone to fuck off without stooping so low as to be a bigot…

    • Barley_Brains

      “Asshole” is my standard swear. Keeps it simple.

      • Anna Rompage

        Asshole, hoofwanking bunglecunt, shithead, moron, fucknut, skid mark, are all appropriate insults to use when expressing frustration in an excited manner…

      Combined with other curse words and the like, and you get the idea.

    Just came across this NYT article about Trump’s lack of friends. Money quote:

    Out of all the political and business and entertainment circles that we’ve moved in together over the years, I never really met anyone who was Trump’s good friend,” said the Rev. Al Sharpton, who first encountered Mr. Trump in the boxing milieu of the 1980s. “In fact, I’ve never even met anyone who claimed to be his good friend.

    Think about the ramifications of that. How does one get to be seventy years old, apparently wealthy and successful – and still not have one real friend?

    • Thiazin Red

      Think about the convention speeches, there were so many people who had personal stories about Clinton doing something good for them, or being kind. Specific personal unique stories.

      There were exactly zero of those for Trump. Even his own family don’t have personal anecdotes about him being generous or kind. They talk about him like you would talk about an acquaintance you needed to come up with a vague statement about.

      • Bub the Bad Zombre

        Exactly. EXACTLY! He is a grasping, vindictive, amoral bastard, and no one really likes him, or trusts him. They will cozy up to him if they think there is something in it for them, but they do it for the same reason pilot fish follow a shark. Their biggest concern is getting away with a few scraps of bleeding meat without being devoured themselves.

      • Sister Artemis

        It’s hard for me to drum up much sympathy for Trump, but that’s actually very sad. Someone on the tv/ interwebs/ somewhere, in the week after the conventions, pointed out the stark difference in who spoke for Clinton and Trump. I thought it sad then, and still do. The little about Trump’s upbringing we gleaned from Frontline’s excellent “Choice 2016” episode points to a pretty miserable life, however covered in gold it’s been.

      • Mayor_Quimby

    • Carpe Vagenda

      Hotel heiress Leona Helmsley, who died in 2007, made her Maltese her biggest heir, leaving a $12 million trust fund for the pooch in a will that disinherited two of her grandchildren. A judge later knocked the pup’s inheritance down to $2 million, and Trouble took the money and retired, flying by private jet to the Helmsley Sandcastle hotel in Sarasota, Fla. The hotel’s general manager cared for the dog and spent hundreds of thousands on her care annually, including $1,200 on food, $8,000 on grooming and $100,000 for full-time security. (Trouble had received death threats.)

      The death threats were most likely because in her declining years, when she was past speaking intelligibly, Mrs. Helmsley amused herself by watching her dogs bite the servants.

    My late sister’s ex in North Carolina, who for more than 20 years has had on her car a bumper sticker proclaiming her pride in being lesbian, has had zero incidents of harassment in all those years until now. But since Trump’s rise, she’s twice had people tailgate her and yell things, and on several other occasions has had people making derogatory comments about her sexuality after seeing her bumper sticker. F*ck Donald Trump.

    So, when Gerald Ford was sworn in as President, he said our long national nightmare was over. It was 26 months since the Watergate break in. If he only knew how long his party was going to settle in on the Crazy Train 40 years later, he’d have just said that Watergate thing was nothing.

    ““I could care less”

    You smart probably already said this – But Brandon was great…until this mangling of the saying came along.

    I’m being shitty, I’m sorry. lots of people say it – I heard it in an old episode of the west wing recently…it just bugs me.

    Go Brandon! America shouldn’t be a place where this kind of shit happens and I get the feeling it’s not the first time for this poor dude.

    • Nasty Astraea

      It’s actually perfectly acceptable! http://blog.dictionary.com/could-care-less/

      Etymologists suggest that “I could care less” emerged as a sarcastic variant employing Yiddish humor. They point to the different intonations used in saying “I couldn’t care less” versus “I could care less.” The latter mirrors the intonation of the sarcastic Yiddish-English phrase “I should be so lucky!” where the verb is stressed.

      • Juan de Payaso

        Dear god, thank you. I use the phrase all of the time. I was getting worried there for a minute.

      • Yr. Gma

        I still hate it.

        • Nasty Astraea

          I could care less.

          • Yr. Gma

            Harhar.

      • sw19headlesshorseperson

        Not convinced. It is so overwhelmingly a US-based idiom, as opposed to the rest of the english-speaking world, where we use “couldn’t”. It simply spread and became the norm.
        At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter that it was widely adopted, it’s simply another quirk of american english, like dropping the u, or using z instead of s etc… it simply makes language so rich and different across cultures.
        :)

        • Juan de Payaso

          Then explain, “Zed.” It’s pronounced, Zeee-eee-ee-e.

          It’s.Not.Zed!11!! ;)

            Ireland, Scotland, England, and Australia disagree with you. Lol.

          • Juan de Payaso

            And they’re actually right if you trace the word back. I just enjoy the good natured back and forth :)

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            ;)

          • Angela Ruzzo

            In French, it is Zed. I’m guessing the Brits borrowed this pronunciation from the French at some point in the past?? I find it slightly amusing that the British have retained some French pronunciations, while mangling so many others. We could talk all night about how the British pronounce “filet mignon.”

            On the other hand, why do Americans PERSIST in holding the fork in their right hand while eating filet mignon??? Surely, after watching 3,847 episodes of Downton Abbey, Americans could have picked up on the advantages of holding the fork in their left hand while eating food that must be cut up with a knife.

          • Juan de Payaso

            Good point. I’ve always held the fork in my left hand. Never understood how or why people would do otherwise. What’s up with that? How does that even work?

        • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

          Aye, indeed.

        • CripesAmighty

          Meh. American English is dull, flat, sloppy, limp, and lazy. I’ll take the Queen’s Tongue if it’s all the same to you..

            Naturally, I am biased, so I totally agree with you. :D

        • Angela Ruzzo

          Huzzah!

      • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

        So, you’re saying it can be both, as long as the latter has a sarcastic intonation. Hm…that kind of strikes me as the opposite of sarcasm, but I”ll leave it to the dictionary folk.

        • Zippy W Pinhead

          Irregardless, you can use both…

        • sw19headlesshorseperson

          It could well have started out from a sarcastic tone, which got lost as the phrase spread by word of mouth.
          As long as people understand its meaning, it doesn’t matter. Language is a living thing, and many words and phrases have developed and transmogrified over time – sometimes to mean the exact opposite. That’s how it works.
          But yes, I agree with you, it sounds clunky, especially as it’s a regional affectation from where I’m standing. ;)

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            Look, you’re right on this point, language changes, I’m just saying it doesn’t make any sense.
            “I’m voting for Trump”
            “I could care less” – means this statement ranks at a place at which I could go further downs in terms of not caring.
            “I couldn’t care less” – means this statement is irrelevant, stupid, or otherwise unimportant that I have, to use the popular phrase, no fucks left to give on the subject.

            Off to my test, I’ll check back in on the war I started in about an hour and a half.

        • NastyPUAAN

        It would still knock all the humor out of the “Peanuts” strip in which Sally Brown, fielding a teacher’s question, replies, “I could not possibly care less.” She then apologizes by saying that she didn’t mean it. It was a gut reaction.

      • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

        Gotta interject and mention the red cross book program. (There are plenty of places to donate books, just saying). I worked the table at a few deployments. Basically we provided donated books free of charge to military personnel for the trip over and when they’re done, they can leave the book at their local red cross station, so some other person can get it for free and read it and maybe bring it back to U.S. and donate it again…round and round the books go.

        • Carpe Vagenda

          We’ve had trouble giving them away.

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            If you’re interested I think you can even get a prepaid box to ship them for disbursement. A veteran’s hospital is a good one (books to read during recovery). Also local battered woman’s shelter (that’s where a big box of TX mom’s books will probably be heading). All depends on the genre of course. Local library is an easy one for any left overs.

            I actually LOVED working hte book table at the Red Cross. After the first one, that was the spot I volunteered for every time. Every box was kind of a grab bag, so I’d root around and get a sense of what was in there. Then when soldiers (we only had soldiers, no marines, USAAF, navy or coast guard), I’d ask them if there was a genre they were interested in and try to find something. Needless to say military thriller books (Tom Clancy) were popular, some fantasy style books. I did the best I could for ’em.

    • Be Gin

      I know you did not mean to say that like it was a bad thing!

      I’m sorry, it’s a disease for which there is no cure. I tried moving into a place where I have very little room for books, but I still find myself wishing I still had just that ‘one’ book, oh and then there’s this other one I wish I had kept, and then I spend a lot of time worrying about whether or not I kept the right books, so I go and buy another copy, and what I’m telling you is, there is no hope. Always try to live in a place where you can keep all of the ‘important’ books. Sorry, I know not very helpful or hopeful.

    The racism. The homophobia. The “be a woman” moment (some faux-Trumpism right there: imagine a bargain basement knock-off of a Walmart original). The artful blend of Fox and Friends-level historiography with Hannity-level histrionics.

    Ah the Brexit problem. You can’t say Racist or Xenophobe because you don’t even know them. I know a Welsh Brexshiteer who is married to a black lady, and is very anti racism (and the guy is a 6’2″ 300ib prison officer, so if he tells a prisoner to stop being racist…)

    However, who did the racists vote for? Which side has supporters who want Muslims, Asians and Blacks to ‘go back where they came from’ (sometimes eliciting the response ‘What, [English town]. Which side’s supporters are conducting racial violence?

    onion ninjas, by way of 2 Live Crew

    The news Janet Reno passed away early Monday has left many black Miamians, including msyelf, saddened by her death. She meant so much to the African American community. She always stood up for us when no else would.

    At the height of my fame, Reno was the only state prosecutor who didn’t come after 2 Live Crew for singing explicit lyrics when every law enforcement official in the state wanted to throw our asses in jail. In fact, she defended our first amendment right to be as nasty as we wanted to be. When I formed the Liberty City Optimist Club, Reno was the first person to make a donation to the youth program.

    In 1989, I wrote and produced a song about Reno going after deadbeat dads. Performed by cousin and her rap group Anquette, “Janet Reno” was a big hit with single black moms from Overtown to Opa-Locka. Black dads knew if they didn’t pay their child support, Reno would throw them in jail. And she had zero tolerance for indiscriminate killing. If you murdered an innocent person, you were getting life in prison. Reno knew how to deal with the problems in the African American community.

    As a result, she was the only white lady who commanded the full respect of black Miami. At the annual Martin Luther King Jr. parades, Reno would get more cheers than the Miami Northwestern marching band. She didn’t need politcians and pastors to endorse her.

    People may have disagreed with her, but they repsected her. As Miami-Dade County State Attorney and the first woman U.S. Attorney General, Reno handled her high profile jobs with professionalism. She never allowed politics to dictate her decisions.

    Reno was a true Florida icon

        If the President has learned anything over the past eight years, it’s that these fuckers are utterly unwilling to compromise about anything. They want 100% and will whine like the little bitches they are if they don’t get it.

        Hillz needs to say, “There’s a new sheriff in town, so there will be new rules. If you don’t like that, then go pound sand. In the meantime, I’ll be communicating directly with the American people.”

    Definition: Worthless nonsense
    When it trended: March 3rd, 2016
    Lookups for trumpery have been spiking periodically since the end of 2015, as a result of the burgeoning political fortunes of Donald Trump. Recently, people have begun posting trumpery definitions to various social media sites. This fairly obscure word has a decidedly negative set of meanings which have delighted the real estate mogul’s detractors.
    Samuel Johnson, in his great dictionary of 1755, assigned three senses to trumpery, none of which were terribly appealing:
    (1) Something fallaciously splendid; something of less value than it seems
    (2) Falsehood, empty talk
    (3) Something of no value; trifles

    Harry Belafonte: What Do We Have to Lose? Everything

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0e41939b5d123a437645604aaaae1a4f7024a262b786c5ad99982e290015ded1.jpg

    “O, yes,

    I say it plain,

    America never was America to me,

    And yet I swear this oath —

    America will be!”

    — Langston Hughes, “Let America Be America Again”

    What old men know is that everything can change. Langston Hughes wrote these lines when I was 8 years old, in the very different America of 1935.

    It was an America where the life of a black person didn’t count for much. Where women were still second-class citizens, where Jews and other ethnic whites were looked on with suspicion, and immigrants were kept out almost completely unless they came from certain approved countries in Northern Europe. Where gay people dared not speak the name of their love, and where “passing” — as white, as a WASP, as heterosexual, as something, anything else that fit in with what America was supposed to be — was a commonplace, with all of the self-abasement and the shame that entailed.

    It was an America still ruled, at its base, by violence. Where lynchings, and especially the threat of lynchings, were used to keep minorities away from the ballot box and in their place. Where companies amassed arsenals of weapons for goons to use against their own employees and recruited the police and National Guardsmen to help them if these private corporate armies proved insufficient. Where destitute veterans of World War I were driven from the streets of Washington with tear gas and bayonets, after they went to our nation’s capital to ask for the money they were owed.

    Much of that was how America had always been. We changed it, many of us, through some of the proudest struggles of our history. It wasn’t easy, and sometimes it wasn’t pretty, but we did it, together. We won voting rights for all. We ended Jim Crow, and we pushed open the Golden Door again to welcome immigrants. We achieved full rights for women, and fought to let people of all genders and sexual orientations stand in the light. And if we have not yet created the America that Langston Hughes swore will be — “The land that never has been yet” — if there is still much to be done, at least we have advanced our standards of humanity, hope and decency to places where many people never thought we could reach.

    What old men know, too, is that all that is gained can be lost. Lost just as the liberation that the Civil War and Emancipation brought was squandered after Reconstruction, by a white America grown morally weary, or bent on revenge. Lost as the gains of our labor unions have been for decades now, pushed back until so many of us stand alone in the workplace, before unfettered corporate power. Lost as the vote is being lost by legislative chicanery. Lost as so many powerful interests would have us lose the benefits of the social welfare state, privatize Social Security, and annihilate Obamacare altogether.

    If he wins this Tuesday, Donald J. Trump would be, at 70, the oldest president ever elected. But there is much about Mr. Trump that is always young, and not in a good way. There is something permanently feckless and immature in the man. It can be seen in how he mangles virtually the same words that Langston Hughes used.

    When Hughes writes, in the first two lines of his poem, “Let America be America again/ Let it be the dream it used to be,” he acknowledges that America is primarily a dream, a hope, an aspiration, that may never be fully attainable, but that spurs us to be better, to be larger. He follows this with the repeated counterpoint, “America never was America to me,” and through the rest of this remarkable poem he alternates between the oppressed and the wronged of America, and the great dreams that they have for their country, that can never be extinguished.

    Mr. Trump, who is not a poet, either in his late-night tweets or on the speaker’s stump, sees American greatness as some heavy, dead thing that we must reacquire. Like a bar of gold, perhaps, or a bank vault, or one of the lifeless, anonymous buildings he loves to put up. It is a simplistic notion, reducing all the complexity of the American experience to a vague greatness, and his prescription for the future is just as undefined, a promise that we will return to “winning” without ever spelling out what we will win — save for the exclusion of “others,” the reduction of women to sexual tally points, the re-closeting of so many of us.

    With his simple, mean, boy’s heart, Mr. Trump wants us to follow him blind into a restoration that is not possible and could not be endured if it were. Many of his followers acknowledge that (“He may get us all killed”) but want to have someone in the White House who will really “blow things up.”

    What old men know is that things blown up — customs, folkways, social compacts, human bodies — cannot so easily be put right. What Langston Hughes so yearned for when he asked that America be America again was the realization of an age-old people’s struggle, not the vaporous fantasies of a petty tyrant. Mr. Trump asks us what we have to lose, and we must answer, only the dream, only everything.

    Now the great grand children of those lynch mobs have crawled out from under the rocks and demand their share of the limelight. I, for one, am glad that this gets documented lest we forget.

  • Joe Beese

    And Clinton appeared at least somewhat cognizant of the weight of the moment on her final day on the trail after a taxing campaign. Pulling up to the tarmac of the Westchester airport for the last day aboard the “Stronger Together” plane, Clinton was FaceTiming with her granddaughter, Charlotte.

    “You see the big plane?” she cooed into her iPhone, panning her camera across the “H” emblazoned wing, and even pointing it back at the photographers whose lenses are always trained on her, documenting for her family the final moments of the historic race.

  • NastyBosGrl

    My own mother just told me she’s not voting tomorrow. I told her she needs to get her butt down to the elementary school and that I would drive her, and that women that are over 100 are voting, so she has no excuse. By the time I was done she said she’d think about it. I was kind of mean.

    • Joe Beese

      • NastyBosGrl

        Yeah, I’m not going to let up.

        • WomanInAMood

          You go, NastyBosGirl!

    • Panika MCD

      could she have voted by mail and, if so, why didn’t you make that happen?

      if she’s mobility limited (and, yes, being too old to stand in line for 3 hours counts), check the rules for curbside voting in your area.

      • NastyBosGrl

        She is not mobility limited and the polling place is about 2 blocks from her house. There are never any lines (it’s a really small town) and I offered to drive her (even though she still drives). I’ve been talking about early voting since last week and she never indicated she wasn’t voting. She really has no excuse.

        • Panika MCD

          if she’s over 65, you just need to get the form for VBM, have her sign it and then make sure she fills it out. this should have been taken care of already.

          • Jen B_VA

            Huh. IDK about most people but my mom at 65 would have been PISSED at me were I to get her a form from VBM and hassle her into signing it instead of letting her make her own choice as to how and where. At 68 she would have been pissed even. Not sure of 69 since she didn’t make it that far tho

          • NastyBosGrl

            I’m sorry, Jen. Believe me, I love my mom and am grateful that I still have her, but this just burns me up. My mother is fully mobile and in charge of herself and any attempts by me to do anything for her would not be met with gratitude :). She is just being weird for some reason. She has a lot of Trump-voting friends, including my own sister, and I think they’ve been brainwashing her. I told her she can vote for whomever she likes, but not voting at all is not cool.

          • Jen B_VA

            Nah I read you there XD My mom always srsly voted though so I really have no basis for comparison. Very likely I woulda told her off myself had she figured MEH DONT WANNA SO THERE though I doubt I ever would have had to.
            She was….something ^.^ Feisty. Voted for Mickey Mouse once

          • WomanInAMood

            No. What happened?

          • Panika MCD

            he reminded them that he’d slap them with a $4000 fine if they “interfere or obstruct poll watchers”, but said 0 things about what was not legal for poll watchers to do…which is pretty much everything the Trumpettes say they’re going to do. in fact, they have to come with a certificate from the party, campaign or PAC they’re representing and they get a name tag so everyone knows who they are if they try to pull some bullshit–so I don’t think the majority of them will gain entry here in TX. (thank you, Empower Texans and True the Vote Now for pulling that bullshit 4 years ago so we could address them in 2013. you’re welcome that we didn’t put rainbows and unicorns on them like we were talking about doing all session in 2013.)

      Maybe it’s another act but assuming it’s not–I think it’s more about Glenn’s basic Mormonism. There is a reason The Book of Mormon musical was received so well and was so well-written. I think it’s that Mormons are fundamentally decent Americans who, like my Mennonite kin, try to treat everyone equally, with malice to as few as possible.

      And his meds.

      • Panika MCD

        I thought he voluntarily left the church. I know they loaded up the talks with stuff about service and stuff and when he didn’t leave his bishop had a nice chat with him. it was after that whole, “if your church preaches service, RUN!” thing. the Mormons think that the most Christlike thing to do is to be in service to their fellow man–even us non-believers.

        full disclosure: raised agnostic. like many kids raised outside of church services, we were very curious. we started going to the LDS Church to learn about Christianity because my older brother’s scout troop was run through them. they’re totally cool people. at least the ones in our area. and some of my favorite Christian (–adjacent??) verses are in the Book of Mormon. I only made it from 10 through the first year of high school, but the couple that ran seminary for our ward were really super cool and we got a fun talk one day about birth control being “between you, your spouse and God”. they were pretty happy when they found out I ended up in Democratic politics even if I didn’t stay in the church.

    Fox News? The four horsemen of the Republican apocalypse? The FBI? Whatever the outcome, historians will judge harshly those who did not stop Trump when they could.

    • Jen B_VA

      Nice little fascists. Warnings to those who do not follow the rules see?

      • TJ Barke

        Yeah, who needs the 2nd amendment to defend who against tyranny?

        • Jen B_VA

          Oh we always knew.

    • Logic of Color

      You know what sucks about this, besides the obvious, is that Ku Klux Klan is actually a really cool name for a club or band or whatever.

      • Jen B_VA

        Could always call it the Cuck Clutz Clan and mock them as you rock

      • Suse

        I just got home. Have I missed much?

        • ltmcdies

          no speeches yet. Bon Jovi was on before..that’s when I came in.

  • JVisconti

    Just saw Springsteen give a HRC open that even Bamz says I wish I could have said that (and I sing like crap)

  • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

    OT: Dammit, torts test did not go well. 90 or 95 at best and that’s assuming I didn’t make another mistake.

    But this is what’s great about a law-related program, instructor said I should prepare and argue the point next class.

    • Nasty Astraea

      Torts was hardest for me because of all the memorizing.

      • Suse

        It was my favorite class, after legal research and writing.

        • Nasty Astraea

          I liked it, I’m just terrible at memorizing things.

        • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

          I’m struggling (in maintaining my A, but stilll we get to use our damn notes!)

          • Suse

            Don’t be so hard on yourself.

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            ;)

          • WomanInAMood

            Ahem. You are doing very well at something that is difficult. You know the rest.

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            Thanks, as always.

    • Sister Artemis

      at first I thought you were talking about making tortillas…

      • Jen B_VA

        Taco trucks WEDNESDAY. Don’t jump the gun

      • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

        Heh! We buy ours…much easier. Although Alton Brown does have a good eats episode on the subject. It’s blasphemous, but I am not usually a corn tortilla fan. Depends on the dish.

    • Jen B_VA

      90 or 95 is…pretty good? Just saying. Being an A and all.

      • Suse

        Yeah!

      • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

        thanks! It’s just that this isn’t harvard…we get to use our notes for jeebus sakes. I’v ehad a problem over analyzing questions and it’s bite me in the ass, but this time doing that would ahve given me the right answer. Gah!

        • Thiazin Red

          From what I’ve heard, would it even be possible to do law school exams without notes?

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            From what I’ve heard it’s even nastier. Apparently (ask the lawyers here, I”m just a paralegal student), they have ONE test. One grade for the semester. Usually only an essay outlining some kind of argument based on the prompt. I really don’t know for sure.

            But you’re right, memorizing seems kind of silly. I keep telling people this program has taught me why every lawyer commercial has the lawyer standing in front of a stack of books.

          • Jen B_VA

            Sounds like my Pleistocene exam.
            One exam, one question. Fucking Archaeologists.

          • DeplorableTXTacoTruckofDoom

            I laughed out loud. THat deserves more than just an upfist.

          • Jen B_VA

            To be serious, I do not think it was to be tough, grr.
            I think he was just that lazy.
            As best I recall, the question went
            “You are One Obsidian Weasel, wandering around the North American Continent approximately 20000 to 10000 BP. You have a long life charm. Describe everything you see, including flora, fauna and geographic changes- as defined by modern geoarchaeologists- during your 10000 year hike from the Bering Strait to the Canadian Shield and down through to South America.”

            Something like that. It was basically “What did you learn in this class” only snarkier

          • Spotts1701, The Baddest Hombre

            One examination question I remember in Criminal Procedure went like this:

            “Andy works for Bill in the State of Franklin. The state of Franklin has adopted the Model Penal Code for criminal law. One day Andy decides he’s fed up with the way Bill has been treating him. So Andy takes a gun, storms into Bill’s office and shoots him in the head. Satisfied, Andy leaves the office.
            Unbeknownst to Andy, 10 minutes before he entered the office Bill had a massive heart attack and died at his desk.

            List all possible crimes that Andy could be charged with. List all possible defenses Andy could raise to the charges against him.”

          • Jen B_VA

            Sounds about right XD
            Also, poor Bill!

          • Spotts1701, The Baddest Hombre

            Yep, one exam for the course in law school. Yes, some pr
