Poor Donald Trump! His coterie of dipshits couldn’t get it together to book hotel rooms at the G20, so he had to rely on the kindness of the City of Hamburg and stay at their Senate Guest House. Sad!

Obviously, Trump knows nothing about foreign relations and international diplomacy. But aren’t hotels kind of his thing?

Surely the Trump Administration will just admit the goof and move on.

Oh, but we are to kid! No, the White House is putting this one on The Black Guy, of course. From the Daily Mail,

The White House is blaming the Obama administration for leaving President Donald Trump without a proper hotel during this week’s G20 summit.

Every top-shelf lodging was already booked by the time the Trump White House began making inquiries – but that, two White House officials say, is because their predecessors never booked rooms for an American delegation.

The G20’s northern Germany summit was announced in February 2016, when Obama was still president and Trump was considered a long-shot hope to take the White House.

‘Obama’s people left everyone high and dry,’ one current official said on Friday. ‘They didn’t care enough to make sure whoever was president would have a place to stay.’

THANKS, OBAMA!

Okay, let’s just take the word of an unnamed White House staffer that the Obama team did nothing about the G20 summit. Trumpland spends half its time leaking and the other half shitting on anonymous sources. But fine, we believe you, random White House flack! All the luxury hotel rooms were booked “by the time the Trump White House began making inquiries.” But you left out one key piece of information here. When did you start making the calls? Was it closer to January 21, or June 21?

In February, Rex Tillerson had to stay at a health spa in the suburbs of Bonn because he couldn’t get a room for G20 meeting.

On his first trip abroad as U.S. secretary of state, Rex Tillerson was forced to stay at a sanitarium in a German village known for its hot springs, 30 minutes from where other world leaders gathered. Diplomatic security agents mingled in the parking lot with elderly people in wheelchairs arriving for spa treatments.

How long after Bloomberg reported this did you guys jump on kayak.com and start looking for rooms?

Your 5$F just flew from Baltimore to Seattle via Dallas, because she is a lamewad procrastinator who booked at the last minute. She didn’t blame Expedia for her own fuck up!

The party of personal responsibility will not be ruining this story by asking too many questions, though. They’re pinning this one on Obama, goddammit! Here’s a #hottake from the geniuses at Young Conservatives.

Clearly, the Obama Administration dropped the ball here.

Would have been the right thing to do to make sure the next president had everything set up considering that it was already too late on Election Day.

But, you know how President Obama is. Not exactly a great planner.

If Hillary had won she would have been screwed too but as the Daily Mail article points out the media would be singing a completely different tune.

Right. Because the media gave the Clintons a free pass and never covered the White House Travel Office.

And the media never once complained about the expense of Obama’s travels. Except for that time in 2010 that Glenn Beck made up that bullshit about Obama’s official trip to India costing $200 million a day. Or Fox News’s bi-weekly ragegasms over the Obama’s travel expenses. And all the Trump tweets.

Fox News is still complaining that the Obamas have the nerve to take nice vacations. But a Clinton fuck up would have been a non-story?

Okay, Young Conservatives. We are of the opinion that counterfactuals are just lazy intellectual wanking. But it’s the weekend, so what the hell! Let’s pretend that we’re in that alternate universe where Hillary won and had to rely on the kindness of strangers at the G20 summit.

In your comma-free fantasyland, “the media” would have given her a pass on this.

If Hillary had won she would have been screwed too but as the Daily Mail article points out the media would be singing a completely different tune.

Well, bless your heart! We at Wonkette are pretty sure that Fox News would spend a month of outrage that uppity Hillary refused to stay anywhere but an ultra-luxury hotel. After savaging her for being a ditz who failed to book the rooms on time, of course. We are pretty sure the media’s “different tune” would go something like this.

    Could it be that shiftless Nobummer may have thought that she-beast over-planner Killary would have a staff capable of seeing into the future with their elitist “calendars” that he was going to secretly pass to her under the table of his $11,000,000 a plate funtime party for her? And they would be able to snag a good hotel room for Killary and whoever from the staff at said hotel with whom his staff had already established a good working relationship? Good thing all that’s over now.

    You would think a guy in the hotel business might know someone who could fix him and the American delegation with accommodations. However, once again, Donnie’s business reputation precedes him and no one in the business was willing to help. Continuing to be despised by your peers is not really a good look for anyone. And Donnie is despised by others in the hotel business and now by most world leaders, I can only say his (lack of) competence is showing.

    • Claire

      Not to mention that, with all the penthouse suites in the country apparently full, no hotel was willing to boot, say, Argentina down a floor to make room for the President of the United States. I bet Obama never even HAS to book rooms. He just shows up and the best suite in the hotel magically opens up.

      • SeekingCovfefeBarbie

        Ha! They probably call Obama and ask him to grace them with his presence.

        • Claire

          No joke, I would if I owned a hotel. I’d be keeping tabs on his travel plans and calling to offer him a room. It would be great publicity.

      Sounds like something a transition team would do. If there was a real, functioning transition team.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        The transition team’s primary function was to play footsie with the Russian Ambassador.

    • jesterpunk

      The administration is supposed to book their own travel that is why there is a travel department that is supposed to be staffed by qualified people. Trump is supposed to be a smart business man who knows the hotel business too.

    • Edith Prickly

      I believe this is something the State Department would handle, but since the Orange Menace hasn’t troubled himself to hire any staff in the past six months, I’d say it’s on him.

      • DoILookAmused2u? Résistance☨

        You forgot the firing of all the top level people thing too.

      • SisterArtemis

        Interesting, that makes sense. No staff with enough time to look ahead and plan.

        • Edith Prickly

          This was my source https://www.vox.com/world/2017/7/6/15929498/trump-hotel-g20

          Just one of the many, many things Trump doesn’t understand about being a head of state. You need teams of people to plan and coordinate these events. People who know that the hotels are going to fill up quickly when there’s an international meeting of leaders and make the reservations months in advance. And it’s not the frigging previous administration’s job to set things up for the successor.

          • SisterArtemis

            That was a good quick read, thanks.

            So why does this keep happening? It might have to do with the fact that the State Department is currently understaffed and unorganized. Only nine key positions out of 124 have been confirmed at the State Department.

            No one has even been nominated as the director in the Office of Foreign Missions, which is responsible for planning and providing security for US missions when diplomats and other top officials travel abroad.

          • The Wanderer

            That’s so the next Embassy that gets whacked will be blamed on Hillary.

          • Celtic_Gnome

            A Republican Secretary of State who was sure he was going to be governor (and didn’t win) took his frustrations out on the incoming Secretary of State, also of the same party as the incoming Governor.

            He wouldn’t let a transition team into the offices before the change of administration, and a representative of the new Secretary of State had to meet the current Assistant Secretary of State at the office on Sunday night, and the Assistant SOS turned over the keys to the office at 12:01 AM Monday morning.

          • cleos_mom

            And any other POTUS would know that.

            It’s a sad state of affairs when the alleged President can’t even live up to Lester Maddox’ legacy.

      • miss_grundy

        But there are career employees who work in the State Department. And there must be support staff in the Office of Foreign Missions who had to know that this meeting was on the calendar and that rooms had to be booked for the Orange Menace and his minions. Perhaps some lowly support staff brought this to the attention of that Reince Priebus and he decided to blow that person off? I wouldn’t put it past this clown.

        • Edith Prickly

          Sounds entirely plausible.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/08/world/europe/group-of-20-climate-change-agreement.html

    HAMBURG, Germany — World leaders struck a compromise on Saturday to move forward collectively on climate change without the United States, declaring the Paris accord “irreversible” while acknowledging President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the agreement.

    In a final communiqué at the conclusion of the Group of 20 summit meeting in Hamburg, Germany, the nations took “note” of Mr. Trump’s decision to abandon the pact and “immediately cease” efforts to enact former President Barack Obama’s pledge of curbing greenhouse gas emissions 26 to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025.

    But the other 19 members of the group broke explicitly with Mr. Trump in their embrace of the international deal, signing off on a detailed policy blueprint outlining how their countries could meet their goals in the pact.

    The statement and the adoption of the G20 Climate and Energy Action Plan for Growth ended three days of intense negotiations over how to characterize the world’s response to Mr. Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, and it came as this year’s meeting of major world economies here laid bare the stark divide between the United States and the rest.

      Edith Prickley pointed me towards this piece downthread:
      https://www.vox.com/world/2017/7/6/15929498/trump-hotel-g20

      No one has even been nominated as the director in the Office of Foreign Missions, which is responsible for planning and providing security for US missions when diplomats and other top officials travel abroad.

      • Le Chapeau

        That was my first suspicion. To say the White House has a skeleton staff is to insult skeletons.

      • miss_grundy

        And there you go! See, that is the office that is supposed to handle this stuff. So, instead of blaming Bamz, blame Donnie for not nominating someone for this position, which sounds like it should be located in the State Department. But shouldn’t this office have support staff to deal with routine stuff?

    • Edith Prickly

      And he refuses to hire anyone who isn’t a family member or crony, so there’s nobody there who actually knows what needs to be done.

          What’s the former caddy doing? He only has one job. Jared has like 26.

    • Most of his administration’s positions are still unfilled. Presumably because Donald doesn’t know anyone who who’s willing to actually do, ugh, clerical work.

    • puredog

      Is there any chance that Donnie might use Occam’s Razor on himself?

  • really?

    So I went online Thursday morning (yeah, two days ago) to check the ‘no hotel rooms’ claim.

    I found at least twenty rooms available at ‘five star’ hotels ($500+ per night). I get that POTUS needs a secure-able location, but his staff could have easily found rooms, right in the heart of Hamburg. No need to sleep on the floor of the consulate.

    My guess: WH people literally phoned hotels and believed the Germany staff when they were told ‘sorry, sold out.’ My guess is that WH people never checked online to see if maybe people from a country that Trump said is ‘ruined’ whose leader was/is denigrated by Trump might have been … um, having a little payback.

    • Maybe they didn’t have any rooms with rubber sheets on the beds?

    • SisterArtemis

      Yeah, but $500-600? That’s really slumming it.

      • Seems like that Shatner guy on priceline might be a better negotiator than Trump or his minions.

      • really?

        Staffers had to sleep at the US consulate – literally sleeping on floors.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        He would have spent the entire summit obsessing over the fact that $500-600 wasn’t going in his pocket.

  • Nockular cavity

    Why not ask your friend Vlad, Donald? I’m sure he could come up with accommodations for you and your people. Nice, secure ones, you bet!

    • miss_grundy

      Yeah, but the commute from the gulag would be a slog…..

    • cleos_mom

      He might even be able to rustle up a pee hooker or two.

  • C’mon, cut Trump some slack. It is hard to think about hotel rooms when you are spending most of your time with your lawyers trying to figure out how to obstruct justice and sell out your country without getting impeached and going to jail.

    • The Green Bastard

      Trump lawyers: “Well, we know how to help w the 1st two things… still working on the last two.”

  • Pax Americana Per Ars Smith

    I know this is unscientific, but I just checked trivago.com and there are over 600 rooms for tonight.

    • really?

      Nah, g20 is done today.

      I looked on Thursday morning. Dozens available. Maybe not for POTUS (needs to be secure-able) but yes for his staff instead of the hallways of the consulate.

      I think WH people phoned the hotels and the german staff lied. And I think the WH didn’t bother to just go online and check for availability.

      Gullible idiots. 45 insults germany, insults Merkel for years and … ‘sorry, we’re full.’

      • jesterpunk

        Isnt that what the White House travel office is for? Where I work we have a travel department with arrangements with the big hotel brands, when we have to travel we go to our company travel website, put in the dates and which office and it shows which flights, rental cars and rooms to book based on the distance from the office. The White House should have something better then that if they hire competent staff.

        • UnsaltedSinner

          I think the answer to this mystery hides in that “if” in your last sentence.

          • jesterpunk

        And he doesn’t EVER use ‘beautifully.’

        • Not to mention everything is spelled correctly. Trump can barely spell anything other than his own name correctly.

    • SisterArtemis

    • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

      They already asked Hillary why she wasn’t fixing health care. Even THEY know she’s the real president (and the only one who actually know how to do this shit).

      • miss_grundy

        What was that all about? Of course, she decided to troll them by pointing out to her campaign web site and the page which discussed the ACA and the need to fix certain areas in the law. But how low are these people to ask her to fix their problem.

        • Uncle Mark

          Actually, I didn’t get the impression that the GOTP’rs were expecting an answer. Despite their incessant whining, bitching and tantrums over the ACA for 7 years, they had no plans as to what to replace it with. (It was obvious during the 2012 campaign when Lyin’ Ryan kept teasing the media with this “brilliant new Republican healthcare plan”…which during the long-awaited reveal, turned out to be nothing more than a health-saving’s account…the regurgitated and wildly unpopular idea pro-offered by the “Genius” W Bush in 2006.) Clearly the Republicans hadn’t learned their lesson from that self-inflicted gunshot wound to the foot.

          Much like the dog that keeps chasing the car, the GOP caught the car this year and didn’t know what to do from there. NO ONE in the GOP had any plans, and suspected that probably Hillary was just like them…except she isn’t…and she actually did her homework.

          It’s even possible that the Republicans thought asking her was rubbing salt in the wounds, and were counting on her telling them to fornicate-off, except being smart and classy, she did the best thing to help the American people, while sticking it to the GOP much to their chagrin

        He did act but The Turtle and Ayn Rand Boy didn’t want to do anything about it. So, why would Bamz continue to push the issue? He is on his way out. And the Dolt campaign was colluding with the Russkies–so, they weren’t going to do anything about it. I hope that Bamz is enjoying reading WaPo in his home in Kalorama only a few miles from the White House. And that Dolt is shitting bricks into his diapers as Mueller continues to breathe down his neck.

Our best was an entire house. This one wasn’t an accident–they realized they couldn’t fit it under the next overpasss, so they just set it down on the side of the Hollywood Freeway AND LEFT IT THERE.

          We drove such a hard bargain with the assholes we bought our house from. It’s a really pretty little fairly small-scale Storybook house from the 1920s, with small rooms, that they’d idiotically filled with huge leather couches and weird enormous pine armoires, and they said absolutely nothing about the beautiful arches, the curving stone staircase, the gorgeous hardwood floors, the Mexican pavers in the kitchen, the way it’s built surrounded by trees so you see green everywhere even though you’re minutes from Hollywood Blvd. They literally only pointed to this stupid little marble shelf in the foyer as their pride and joy AND the actual electric trains the hubby had set up in a really pretty little room at the top of the house (I use it for my office). Entitled little brats with her Daddy’s money–no idea how nice the house was or how to appreciate it. We knew they were making $$ no matter what–the market was rising–and their agent was so sick of them, the house had been overpriced and on the market a while, he told us they HAD to sell bc he’d gotten a job in the South Bay (we’re in L.A.). So we made a reasonable offer and then never budged from it. We had to install an HVAC system, too, and we told them that was part of it. “WE came down in price, why aren’t you coming UP?” “Because we told you that was our final offer.” “Well we’re GOING TO SHOW IT TO OTHER PEOPLE!” “Go ahead! Good luck with that!” So they were spitefully angry like little kids and TOOK THE MARBLE SHELF! It was hilarious!

          • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

            It really is the prettiest little house. It’s small, two-bedroom, two-bath, with small rooms, a really small kitchen, and only a one-car garage, and built against a hillside so it has lots of levels and stairs, which get tougher as we get older and have things like back problems or broken ankles, but we absolutely love it.

I doubt that Bamz’s staff was irresponsible in their duties of pointing out that he needed to reserve hotel space for all of his international meetings. But since he is having a hard time finding enough sycophants who are willing to work for him in the West Wing, it is just easier to blame the Black Guy for all of his screw-ups.

      As a Chinese gal with relatives in Taiwan – I’m sure both mainland Chinese and the Taiwanese are taking this mix up really well. It’s not like the Chinese culture is known for adherence to protocol so as not to inadvertently offend a guest or their host. It’s not like we’re that sensitive about not losing face or anything like that. I’m sure mixing up Taiwan with its barely contained aggressive neighbor didn’t make any of them feel like the US doesn’t give enough of a shit or respect Taiwan.

  • gene108

    I think Trump didn’t want to stay in a hotel, where the U.S. government was not paying the Trump Organization for the President’s use of the facilities.

    He’s bilked us for millions by charging the government for the use of properties he owns during the campaign and is still doing it with his trips to Mar-a-Lago and other places he owns.

    The Secret Service detail isn’t getting free room and board.

  • TundraGrifter

    You know the old joke about the guy who calls up a hotel and asks if he can get a room for the night and the hotel clerk says “No Sir, we’re full this evening” and he says “What if I were the President of the United States? Could I get a room?” and the hotel clerk says “Oh, yes sir! We would accommodate him” and the guy says “Well, the President isn’t going to make it this evening so I’ll take his room.”

    Turns out Mr. Trump and his entourage (they don’t travel light) just aren’t very welcome.

    What is also very, very funny about this is that the United States Secret Service has to make complex security arrangements when the President travels so they well know he didn’t have any hotel reservations but they just channeled their inner Richard Pryor and figured they didn’t have to warn him because he was going to find out about it anyway.

    • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

      so you think the secret service has been pestering them for the last four months, like, ‘Guys, we REALLY need to know where you’re staying?’

      Cause that would add a whole new dimension to this story.

      • TundraGrifter

        Nope. I suggest the United States Secret Service HASN’T been pestering them for the past four months asking there everybody is staying.

        Either the Trump Administration treated them like a reporter and either ignored their calls or lied and said “We’ll get back to you” or the USS never asked. Occam’s Razor slices it toward the USSS never asked.

      He believes Russia shares the same values regarding gun ownership? He doesn’t have a clue. Russia has gun control out the ass:

      https://www.loc.gov/law/help/firearms-control/russia.php

      “While self-defense and protection of property is a constitutional right guaranteed to Russian citizens, Russian legislation on gun control is relatively strict, limiting the circulation of firearms to Russian citizens older than eighteen years of age with a registered permanent residence, and for the purposes of self-defense, hunting, and sports activities only. The acquisition of guns is based on licenses provided for a five-year period by local police departments at one’s place of residence after a thorough background check, including a review of the petitioner’s ability to store guns safely and an evaluation of his/her medical records. Mentally ill people and those who have been treated for substance abuse are not allowed to possess firearms.”

      • Sakonyachen

        So basically what most Americans consider reasonable gun regulation. How comical that gun humpers can be swayed that easily.

            Seems like the way to go about it. Maybe the Russia thing is exaggerated depending on what importance the issue has and who it is important to?

            Of course I’m aware that politics often revolves more around convenience than truth. Still I think it’s hilarious that if this was what Obama had accomplished with gun regulation, the right wingers would be sitting in rooms full of guns complaining that they can’t have any guns. Putin is doing it, so he’s just like the people who don’t want to do it. No way to know if they are dumb enough to believe that, or if they are banking on others being dumb.

    Golly, I hope that Melania didn’t walk in on Pooty and BLOTUS in a compromising position – say like two very randy dogs – and have to tear the two off of each other and bring her man home.

    I’m sure if they tried in January, they could have gotten a room in Hamburg for July. It’s not San Francisco or Manhattan ya morans! Is there anything they won’t stoop to blaming on Obama, including erectile dysfunction?(I’m sorry for putting that image in your mind–not really…)

    • I don’t actually approve of this kind of stuff, but it’s hard to imagine, under any other administration, the President of the United States not being able to get someone else kicked out of their suite, if that’s what it came to.

      • dshwa

        Yeah. I suspect that a lot of foreign leaders were more than happy to not help accommodate Trump by changing up the bookings for their staffs.

  • themidniteskulker

    I don’t think it was an error. He’s deathly afraid he may bump into a REAL president or diplomat or prime minister, and they won’t be sufficiently impressed if they try to talk to him. And if they’re talking shop, he won’t understand any of it,he’ll just have to start telling them how bad he beat HRC, and how everybody in the states loves him and his amazing family,and nobody in the world except his shrinking,literacy-challenged base gives a shit about it.

        Narcissists spend an incredible amount of energy blocking the reality that they’re not the greatest thing since sliced bread from ever seeping in to their consciousness.

        When reality eventually crashes through, it’s devastating. At best it’s a nervous breakdown.

        • sarafina

          Looking forward to it!!!!!

          • dshwa

            I have to admit that I am not. First, because I’m scared the public is so broken with partisanship that when he goes bad (as he’s already showing some signs that he may have already started) his supporters and their Republican representatives will continue to follow him, even if he’s destructive to the nation in the process. Second, when narcissists hit the point where they can’t deny reality anymore, they frequently attempt suicide, and are generally more successful in their attempt than other mentally ill patients. Given the toxic political environment, a suicide attempt, successful or not, would fuel conspiracy theories, and accusations that liberals, the media, Democrats, etc. drove him to it. That’s a big match on an already gasoline covered political environment for some of our already primed for violence wingnuts.

  • Relativicus

    The very first time Obama mentioned something with regards to the disastrous economy he inherited, conservatives were rolling their eyes, sighing, and bitching about how Obama never takes responsibility for anything.

    It’s July 2017! Obama hasn’t been president for six months! And he’s still supposed to have made hotel reservations for this idiot? Doesn’t this idiot have a staff? Doesn’t he know anybody in the hotel business?

    • This is like 47-old-year me going on Facebook to blame my mom for not booking me a hotel for my next visit.

  • JustPixelz (((Ω)))

    I assume they also blame Obama for ISIS’s defeats in Iraq and Syria. Also for the good jobs reports. Also for lowest teen birth rate in U.S. history.

    Lady MS just got off the phone w/friend of going-on 50 years.. Back in the day, I was front desk mgr. of dntn. Baltimore Holiday Inn. Three desk clerks accompanied me on our quest to provide extraordinary service. We are all still in touch. Not one of us can imagine that a politician with an advance team could have failed to book a room, particularly when there was an intl. event coming into town. Obama, my ass. TeamTrump fails again, and passes the buck/blame to his predecessor. Cannot wait to read Trivago reviews of Trump’s latest conflict of interest – motel chain aimed at white trash travelers who only need to see ‘American’ on the billboard to spend their hard-earned dollars on schlock.

  • Tosca

    I like a suggestion I read on another site. Forward reservations were made by Obama’s team, but when Trump won…they quietly cancelled them, thinking it would cause some minor inconvenience to Trump’s team to have to rebook. But no one on Trump’s team thought to check, because they have no idea what they’re doing.

    It’s the spice of petty malice that makes it so satisfying.

    • Jamoche

      Having been on a “transition team” – somewhere there is a document of Things Which Must Be Done, and it includes all the events like this one. And nobody has looked at the fucking document, which is why a year later they haven’t shipped the next version Donnie had to beg for a hotel.

  • Thayer

    So let me get this straight. Trump should’ve booked a room in Hamberg nearly a year before he became president and since he didn’t he’s a clown? Wrong. You’re the clown. Just another liberal dumbass pushing fake news.

      Or maybe in January, once he was in office and – at least theoretically – knew what he was in for. But sure, go ahead and keep passing the buck, Mr. “party of personal responsibiity.” Then again, maybe like you he couldn’t be arsed to spell “Hamburg” right and that’s why he couldn’t find any hotels

    • pussygrabber in chief

            Unlike stripping healthcare from 23 million people, allowing for companies to poison our air and water?

          • Whodis Penny

            healthcare has become unaffordable to many more millions because of inflated costs and astronomical deductibles, all because grifters need more handouts, here’s an idea, let the free market take care of itself

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            1) citation needed, as usual
            2) Insurance was unafforadble due to inflated premiums and astronomical deductibles BEFORE the ACA – and will be again if your party gets its way. IT’S A FACT.
            3) The free market spend the previous 100 years taking care of itself, that’s why insurance was unaffordable pre-ACA.
            4) Unless you’re advocating for single-payer, cause, we’d be on board with that.
            5) That was a piss poor and incomplete response to my argument.

          • Whodis Penny

            if you this h/c was unaffordable before the obamacare debacle, what do you call increases of over 200% and more. this thing is a joke and is why insurance companies all over the country are dropping out . you are totally clueless like every other gibsmedat loser.

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            *sigh*

            “increases of over 200% ”

            Citation needed – also compare yearly premium increases pre and post obamacare…that is if you can do percentages.

            “is why insurance companies all over the country are dropping out”

            It’s been well documented insurance companies are dropping out because republicans have been sabotaging the things from the beginning and the trump admin has been threatening to pull a major part of how the whole thing works – resulting in insecurity in the market. But that’s nuance, and I know you people don’t *do* nuance.

            “you are totally clueless like every other gibsmedat loser.”

            Citation needed.
            And I had to look up that last bit – nice bit of racism! Thanks…you know white folks are the largest recipients of “entitlements” right?
            Also, I have never once in my life filed or received unemployment, food stamps, or disability.

          • Whodis Penny

            ask anyone who actually pays for their own insurance about the increases, not the freeloaders who pay nothing
            how have rebubs done anything, there have been zero votes for or against this monstrosity, it’s failing on its own. that’s why insurance companies are bailing.
            do you know how percentages work, whites are not the biggest recipients percentagewise.

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            “ask anyone who actually pays for their own insurance about the increases,”

            “how have rebubs done anything”

            Let’s see – lying to their constituents, lying to the media, promising to repeal and replace (with jack fucking squat).

            “it’s failing on its own”

            It’s doing quite well, IN SPITE of what i just said. 24 million americans got comprehensive, affordable insurance! Just htink, they could be healthy enough to work and pay taxes!

            “do you know how percentages work”
            I do, I’m still not been given any evidence you do.

            “whites are not the biggest recipients percentagewise”

            two problems with your argument here, one, it’s not affordable, and two, they don’t work, they don’t wanna work they only want more entitlements
            and you brought up the percentage argument, which when pointed out…you failed again, much like the rest of your life is going.

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            “it’s not affordable”

            It’s more affordable than any other system so far, ask those 24 million americans and the cbo.

            ” they don’t work, they don’t wanna work they only want more entitlements”
            How is something I pay for an entitlement? And I guess getting medical visits/procedures covered by insurance “does not work” in your book? That’s fucking insane.

            “which when pointed out…you failed again”

            Citation needed…AGAIN. Premiums under obamacare did not increase yearly at that rate, and what increases there were are NOTHING compared to pre obamacare rates.

            Dumbass.

          • Whodis Penny

            you are totally clueless about the costs/increases which puts you in the handout category, they/you are the only ones happy with this healttcare scam

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            *sigh*

            Okay, this is boring. All the experts, all the studies, all the evidence completely disagree with you.

            But if you want to pay good money for something that covers virtually nothing, please go for it. If you want to go without healthcare cause you had acne in your 20’s, go for it. If you want your premiums to increase between 100 to 1000% percent when the R healthcare plan passes, go for it.

            At this piont, i can’t have any bleeding heart liberal empathy for you. you wanted it, you’ll get it – at the cost of all the rest of us.

            you can keep your doctor
            you’ll save $2500 a year

            lol, yeah, letting people afford health care and generating millions of healthcare jobs is entitlement.

            Either you’re rich, which seems unlikely, or, before Obamacare, you never had insurance or someone else paid for it. Because if you’d had to pay for insurance before Obamacare, you wouldn’t be parroting mindless rightwing bullshit about the free market.

          • Whodis Penny

            no but i’m all for voter id to prevent it from happening.

          • Bub, the truculent Zombie

            You haven’t even come close to proving that it happens at all. A basic principle of jurisprudence is that you don’t waste time making laws against that which does not happen in the first goddamn place.

          • Whodis Penny

            Clueless as usual, try googling voter fraud, see what pops up then get back at me about shit that did or didn’t happen, libs just talk out of their ass all day, it’s truely unbelievable

          • Bub, the truculent Zombie

            I have, jackass. In person voter fraud is all but non-existent. Keep in mind that every single time someone votes illegally, it is a felony. Anyone conspiring to aid people in voting illegally is guilty of multiple felonies. So your contention is that the Democrats knowingly committed millions of felonies in states that they were going to win handily anyway, while ignoring the swing states that would end up costing them the Electoral College, and therefore the election. Because, as you yourself so helpfully have pointed out, America is a republic, not a democracy.

            Honestly dude, try harder. I’m almost feeling guilty here.

          • pussygrabber in chief

            Google “voter fraud unproven” and see what pops up.

          • Whodis Penny

            does not negate there was voter fraud now does it, nice try though.

          • pussygrabber in chief

            Nor do the results of your google search negate the fact that there was no voter fraud. They point is that google search results prove nothing. My bad for expecting you to get that.

          • Whodis Penny

            of course it does, people or doing time you dimwit

          • pussygrabber in chief

            You’re becoming increasingly incoherent. Just because people are always doing a stupid thing doesn’t mean the thing isn’t stupid. You can google *anything* and get results, which is why google searches don’t prove anything.

          • Whodis Penny

            when people are jailed for voter fraud, it pretty much sums up the argument, no matter how much you try to twist logic.

          • pussygrabber in chief

            No, isolated instances of some idiots committing voter fraud doesn’t prove what you’re alleging. You have no proof so you’re moving the goal posts. As fail trolls do.

            I did as you suggested. This was the first result:

            https://www.brennancenter.org/issues/voter-fraud

            President Donald Trump has repeatedly, and falsely, claimed millions voted illegally. Yet examination after examination of voter fraud claims reveal fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is nearly non-existent, and much of the problems associated with alleged fraud relates to unintentional mistakes by voters or election administrators. Election officials and leaders of the president’s own party also agree fraud is not widespread.

            Yes, we all understand that the popular vote doesn’t elect the president. But the popular vote does tell you who’s more, well, popular with voters. Hillary was more popular.

          • Whodis Penny

          • Whodis Penny

            that’s your argument, the popular vote means hillary was more popular, can you even see the stupidity of what you write and then try to project it on to others. that must be some kind of college class. try to twist the word to make the other person dizzy.

          • pussygrabber in chief

            So my argument should be that Hillary winning the popular vote proves that president “people tell me that my electoral college victory was he yoogest since Reagan” is actually more popular?

            Still waiting for you to present your data supporting your contention that more than half the country wants president twitter tantrum. And no, pointing out that if the popular vote had turned out differently the popular would have turned out differently is not an argument

          • pussygrabber in chief

            Also too, if the popular vote can’t be construed to relate to the popularity of the candidate, why does president “my covfefe brings all the fuckwits to the yard” keep stamping his feet and insisting that he did TO win the popular vote?

          • Bub, the truculent Zombie

            See, outside of government intervention, a group has a right ot invite an asshole speaker, opponents have the right to oppose said speaker.

            If the speaker wusses out cause they’re right wing snowflaks, that’s not a violation of free speech. That’s free speech in action! Marketplace of ideas!

            Also, which american city has burned down in the last 15 years? please supply GPS coordinates.

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            yeah, the whole city of baltimore did not burn.

            Also, violence and threats are not 99% of liberal opposition…there’s always going to be assholes.

            (after doing Hide Media, because this troll’s MO is really appalling images!) there’s a gray-label comment from “Kirala”, which is the troll posting under the name of one of the regulars.

          he didn`t give them a dime, it was their own fucking money, seized way back when after an arms deal with a previous admin fell through and sanctions were put in place. Maybe you heard about it, it was quite the news story at the time. Iran/Contra, ring a bell?

          • Whodis Penny

            there was nothing in the law that says it had to be given back. the closet muslim (and gay) gave it to his buddies to help fund terrorism

            2) He’s married to a sexy smart lawyer that would step on you if she was feeling charitable
            3) WTF? You know reagan funded you hated Iran with Iran-Contra, right? There’s good evidence the saudi’s funded and/or encouraged the 9/11 terrorists? You are more likely to be injured or killed by a white domestic terrorist than a foreign one?

          • pussygrabber in chief

            Around here, calling someone “gay” or “muslim” is the same as calling them a “person.” So we perceive no insult in the use of those terms But if it makes you feel any better, you do insult our intelligence.

          • Odd Jørgensen

            Their. Fucking. Money. There was nothing in the law that says we could just keep it. Part of the non-proliferation agreement where Iran agreed to halt all efforts to enrich nuclear material for anything but energy production, the assets they own, like real estate and money made from oil sales etc included unfreezing those assets. Some idiots think this was a bad deal. Sensible people take the view that a world where Iran does not make nuclear weapons are a better world.

          • ZangoCrudmonger

            Just as Hillary sold all the uraniums to the Russkies, without any one else involved, so did Obama return the Iranians their monies, without any one else having a single say. Where have you been? It’s not like there were multiple countries involved with either deals, or congress signing off, or yadda yadda…….

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            that’s NOT what the iran deal did – and maybe you should look at the handing back of property on american soil to russians that interfered in our elections (even your orange daddy admitted it) along with being completely and personally indebted to them.

      When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people
      to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another
      and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal
      station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a
      decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should
      declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

      We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created
      equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
      Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
      — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
      deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That
      whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is
      the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new
      Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its
      powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their
      Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments
      long established should not be changed for light and transient causes;
      and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed
      to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by
      abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train
      of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a
      design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it
      is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards
      for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of
      these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to
      alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present
      King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations,
      all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny
      over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid
      world.

      He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

      He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing
      importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should
      be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend
      to them.

      He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large
      districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of
      Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and
      formidable to tyrants only.

      He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual,
      uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records,
      for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his
      measures.

      He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

      He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause
      others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of
      Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise;
      the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of
      invasion from without, and convulsions within.

      He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for
      that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners;
      refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and
      raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

      He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

      He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

      He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

      He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

      He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

      He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign
      to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent
      to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

      For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

      For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders
      which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

      For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

      For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

      For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

      For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

      For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring
      Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging
      its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument
      for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

      For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

      For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

      He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

      He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

      He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries
      to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun
      with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the
      most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized
      nation.

      He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas
      to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their
      friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

      He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured
      to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian
      Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction
      of all ages, sexes and conditions.

      In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in
      the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only
      by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every
      act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free
      people.

      Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We
      have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to
      extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of
      the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have
      appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured
      them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations,
      which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence.
      They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We
      must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our
      Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in
      War, in Peace Friends.

      We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America,
      in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the
      world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by
      Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and
      declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free
      and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to
      the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and
      the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and
      that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War,
      conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all
      other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And
      for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the
      protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our
      Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

          No shit. It’s rediculous that there’s no option for that.

  • pussygrabber in chief

    To recap: racist troll claimed that more than half the country wants Trump. I pointed out that the popular vote indicates that more people wanted Hillary. Interestingly, troll has declined to go full “VOTER FRAUD!” and has instead taken a more imaginative approach. It now says that we can’t assume that the popular vote means Hillary is actually more popular because if Donald’s campaign had been run differently *he* might have won the popular vote.

    I need moar beerz.

    • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

      rofl – heard that one.

      Also, the voter fraud thing needs evidence – as does everything they say.

    • Bub, the truculent Zombie
    • SisterArtemis

      Yeah, well if unicorns could vote, Hillary would have won for sure, so THERE!

      • Kiri the Unicorn

        Um…There really aren’t that many of us, dear.

        • SisterArtemis

          not enough virgins, right?

          • Kiri the Unicorn

            Low population density and reproductive rate.

            All jokes aside, I’ve never actually been with a virgin.

          • SisterArtemis

            highly overrated, though it’s fun to “amaze!” them with totally ordinary sex.

          • Kiri the Unicorn

            I used to be a virgin unicorn, but I never went to any of the meetings.

          • Teecha

            That is true.

    P.S.

    Dumbass.

  • pussygrabber in chief

    Our troll, and a lot of beer, has inspired me! We can’t assume that Donald won the presidency just because he won the popular vote in certain swing states and thus won the electoral college. Now, pay attention: If Hillary had campaigned differently in those swing states, she might have won their popular votes and thus their electoral votes. Ipso facto abracadabra expecto patronum, Hillary is actually the president!

  • When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government…
