something is seriously wrong with him

Donald Trump just concluded a completely batshit press availability alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who is his best friend now, at least until next time Chuck Schumer launches a Snausage into his mouth. Many bullshits were uttered, but the one that’s REALLY pissing people off is when he baselessly for no reason lied and said Barack Obama and other presidents didn’t call the families of troops killed in action. (!!!!) No seriously, watch it:

WHAT EVEN THE FUCK? It was so strange because he was actually in the middle of saying something halfway human for once, which is that when he has to make four or five of those calls in a day, it’s really hard. We imagine! And then President Fuckstick ruined it all by saying Obama didn’t call troops’ families.

And where did he get that information? Oh, it’s somebody else’s fault:

What in the goddamned fuck is wrong with him?

Alyssa Mastromonaco, who was a deputy chief of staff in the Obama administration, playing the role of Motherfucking Snopes In Your Face:

And Ben Rhodes, who was a foreign policy adviser and speechwriter for Obama, playing the role of Let Me Shove Some PolitiFacts Up Your Ass:

Oh good point! Have we all repressed the memory from the 2016 campaign when Trump spent a week or more attacking the Khizr and Ghazala Khan, a Gold Star dad and mom who lost their son fighting one of America’s wars, just because they spoke out against Trump?

So we can assume, based on Trump’s statement, combined with his dishonest jab at Barack Obama, that the president has been on the phone with the families of the U.S. troops killed in Niger, yeah? He’s probably had a tearful conversation with them about his Electoral College victory and the F-35 airplane and maybe he’s even promised to come visit so he can throw some paper towels at their heads? NOPE. Here’s the full exchange from above, where he says he’s going to get around to it eventually, you know, after he’s done attacking people on Twitter and ignoring Puerto Rico and California:

As MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin notes on Twitter, their deaths were announced 12 days ago.

This has been another edition of “WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH DONALD TRUMP”? We’ll be sure to update you next time he shoves his foot in his mouth so far it comes out of his ass, so, you know, in an hour or so.

      A person with histrionic personality disorder seeks attention, talks dramatically with strong opinions, is easily influenced, seeks to be the center of attention, has rapidly changing emotions, inappropriately sexual or provocative behavior, and thinks relationships are closer than they are.

    I am certain that the Obamas sit with their daughters regularly and say stuff like “This is politics. It’s ugly, and it’s often racist.

      No offense, but he sent condolences to the actual dead people? Not the survivors? Really??

    The Trumpists will say:

    (a) Its true, Obama didn’t call the families of many deceased servicemen and women, especially if he found out that they were Republicans, and they will present some testimony from a grieving mom saying that Obama not only didn’t call her, but had the IRS audit her every year during the Obama presidency; or

    (b) It doesn’t matter if it isn’t true, Trump isn’t a politician and he isn’t there to give speeches or answer reporters’ bullshit questions – he’s there to serve America by restoring our strength, rebuilding our economy, and saving taxpayer money!!; or

    (c) Some combination of both (a) and (b) above, but all Trumpist statements must include

    (i) misspellings;

    (ii) random intervals of all caps;

    (iii) random punctuation;

    (iv) the phrase “typical liberals,”

    (v) reference to most recent conservative concern troll regarding the immorality of liberals (e. g. Harvey Weinstein); and

    (vi) a number “1” included in a series of exclamation points.

    Trump to declare national emergency on opioids months after initial promise
    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump told reporters Monday that he would officially make a national emergency declaration to fight the opioid epidemic next week, a move he billed as a “major announcement.”

    The measure comes after Trump, on the steps of his golf club in New Jersey, pledged in August to declare the opioid epidemic a national emergency. The President, though, never backed up that statement by officially doing so, thus far depriving the fight against the deadly drugs a designation that would offer states and federal agencies more resources and power.

    “We are going to have a major announcement, probably next week, on the drug crisis and on the opioid massive problem and I want to get that absolutely right,” Trump said, billing the official declaration as a large step that took time.

    • Three Finger Salute

      It means Sessions is going to get a windfall into his private prison investments by throwing more addicts in prison.

And I put this on the Obama administration, too, who also did nothing to stop this.

    ‘Dead serious’ Pennsylvania GOP mayoral candidate determined to enact ‘narco bunnies’ plan to sniff out drugs (there’s a cute picture but it’s photoshopped).

    It all began when the Amherst, New York police proposed a drug-sniffing bunnies as part of an April Fool’s joke on their Facebook, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. During a Phoenixville, Pennsylvania mayoral forum, GOP nominee Dave Gautreau actually proposed that if he was elected to the Mayor’s office he would find drug-sniffing bunnies for the police department.

    Despite snickers, he wasn’t kidding and doubled down.

    “I was dead serious,” he said. “I would not make a joke about a rabbit if I did not believe it to be true.”

    The fact that yet another blatant and vicious lie is being allowed to pass and is now treated as normal politics shows why Trump gets away with this shit.

    The media should be reporting this fully and fact checking it by interviewing the families of those called by Obama to expose the lies and not let him get away with his pathetic “I was told that he didn’t often” bullshit.

    They should be challenging Trump at every press conference to give a full apology and unconditionally retract his defamation of Obama. Anything else is a failure by the media to challenge this lying piece of shit.

        That’s how he gets away with so much shit. It’s always on to the next scandal/outrage. And how he gets away with just denying sex allegations, even though they sort of seeped into the news again because of Harvey W and because of the subpoena in the one case. From today:
        “President Trump on Monday again denied allegations of sexual assault made against him before he took office, calling the claims “fake news” and “made-up stuff.”
        “All I can say is it’s totally fake news — just fake. It’s fake, it’s made-up stuff. And it’s disgraceful what happens,” Trump told reporters during an impromptu White House Rose Garden press conference.
        “That happens in the world of politics,” he added.
        http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/355698-trump-calls-past-sexual-assault-allegations-made-against-him-fake
        And I bet they let it go at that.

Someone else asked how he was Hearing Fonts and he basically claimed that he was setting up a straw man of what All the Liberals are like! like he would actually know or anything. Also, doesn’t admitting you are reacting to a straw man without even setting it up IN you actual comment (tweet, whatever) mark you as incompetent?

    against Trump?

    Starting to think responsible media everywhere should protest Trump’s ongoing assault on reality by simply headlining _every_ story in which he’s quoted ‘Trump Still a Gross Fucking Liar’, for the duration…

    … standard demand should be: it goes like this until he publicly retracts every damned one. He has to say ‘I lied; yes, Obama called them. Also I lied: Hillary had jack shit to do with birtherism…’ And so on, and so on…

    … nice thing about that headline: in general, it’s likely to be a pretty serviceable one for whatever he’s saying that day anyway.

  • Alienist

    I have a hypothesis about at least one thing that is wrong about Donald Trump. (Disclaimer: I have not directly evaluation Mr. Trump and base this hypothesis solely on his public media appearances and reports and on his Tweets.)

    As a businessman (of whatever success you choose to grant him — I am not an economist or business professional) whose specialty is sales and self-promotion, Mr. Trump requires a valuable asset to sell or promote. He feels impotent when he has to promote the merely good (or worse). He, therefore, insists that everything he promotes is “the best” (and often adds the line that suggests even he does not believe himself, “Believe me.”) The value of the item(s) he chooses to promote can only be determined by comparison with other similar items. His success is therefore dependent on him believing that those items that have his name attached to them directly (steaks, wine, “universities,” countries, hotels, children, health care, tax plans, etc.) or indirectly (F-35s) are the absolute best. He must also believe that all other comparable objects are not only not of equal quality but are objectively inferior and execrable in comparison. Since these beliefs cannot both be maintained as true in all cases by a mature mind with normal awareness of external reality, Mr. Trump has constructed an internal, imaginary world which he holds to be more true than the common, external reality shared by the vast majority of healthy adults.

    When Mr. Trump makes demonstrably false statements,it accurately reflects the fantasy world he has constructed and which supports his belief that everything Trump is superior to everything not Trump. When “Obama didn’t call the families of soldiers killed in action,” it demonstrated that Mr. Trump believes that his intention to call the families shows his superiority to other presidents. When he says that his inauguration crowd was the largest in history, he shows that, in order for him to continue to see himself as the best president ever, he must believe he had the most supporters ever. The same is true of his election win (“most electoral votes”) and is productivity (“most ever done in so short a time”). The fact that he believes what he says imparts “truthiness” to what he says, allays his fears, and comforts his fans (who also want to believe in his fantasies).

    When his fantasy world is threatened by contact with reality, Mr. Trump protects his fragile mental construct with a common defense, “I was told it was true.” It would be good to know if he ever was told these lies, which would indicate that he is either gullible to believe such obvious falsehoods or that people have been managing his fragile self-esteem with lies all his life, or if he was never told these falsehoods except to lie to himself as a more primitive form of ego defense.

    If this hypothesis is true, then our health, wealth, esteem in the world community, and safety (domestic and international) are dependent on the content and structure of the fantasies of an anxious, fragile, impetuous, vengeful president who denies reality in favor of his self-created internal world.

    Sorry for the long post. I just had to get this out.

      https://lonerwolf.com/empaths-and-narcissists/

    • Cat Cafe

      Well said! I would only add that Trump was a kid with obvious mental issues (hitting his teachers, etc), and his parents, rather than get him the help he needed, sent him off to a brutal military school. He then not only grew to adulthood with the mentality of a third grader with untreated mental illness, but has spent his entire life trying to fill the abyss, to shield himself from his feelings of being worthless after all the years of neglect, abuse, and I’m sure withering criticism from his father.

      So what we have is a malign narcissist, who has failed repeatedly, and who is loathed by millions, trying to soothe his ego. That’s all his actions are–a babyish, deranged idiot trying to make himself feel better. If he’s criticized (“Why haven’t you called the families?”) he needs to not only insist that he has, but to lash out “No one else called! Ever! I’m the ONLY one that even wrote letters!” I mean, literally, he follows this script every. single. time.

      Everything is about himself, and his pathetic, tissue-thin fee-fees, and his ego. He HATES being President. He only did it to get back at the popular black guy who everyone STILL likes better. There is not one single cell in his body that gives a shit about ANYTHING other than himself.

      The fact that this isn’t the top story, in every media outlet, every hour of every day, and that the villains in Congress know this and abet it, is what really enrages me. It’s so clear, and people are actively trying to conceal it so that they can damage us. It’s horrifying.

Since no one else ever payed any of the bills I assume Jody never moved in.

There is no god but if there were one and he were capable of vomiting, he’d vomit.

    • James

      This is why we can’t have nice things.

    • The Flaming Carrot

      Oh, that numpty said even worse things. She (and Jim) said that California was gong to experience “huge earthquakes” because it voted for Hillz. By the way, here’s her profile on the Bakker web site:

      “Lori Bakker, born Lori Beth Graham, was raised in a middle class church attending family in Phoenix, Arizona. A life of partying and drugs that had begun during her early teen years had culminated into five abortions by the age of 22.”

    • m3bosha

      I’m pretty sure somewhere in Song of Solomon it talks about how being a celebrity makes it ok to grab a pussy. So, you know… totes pro God.

    • Nasty Girl Brianna

      I’m pretty sure that’s considered blasphemy, even in Christian circles.

      Wait, wait. This just in. Not considered blasphemy? They really do think Trump is God’s representative here on Earth?

      Ok then. There you have it.

  • Sunhead

    Sooo…..
    Lord Dampnut, Disrespecting the Troops, you’re doing it right.
    Would not be surprised if he wears boxers made from American Flags, not shitty print lookalikes and stuff, but actual American Flags.

    • James

      Plenty of wingnuts that complain about “liberals showing disrespect to the flag” while wearing flag clothing or using throwaway things with flags printed on them like paper plates don’t seem to know much about the US Flag Code (which prohibits all that as disrespect of the flag).

      • Sunhead

        Flag beach towel.
        Put it on the ground, lay on it, use it to dry yourself and clean your feet before getting in the car. It’s like something designed to do all the disrespect in one object.
        How many RWNJ’s have at least one?

  • m3bosha

    Yurtle has never looked very happy. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen him look this sad. I mean, seriously sad, like go see a therapist sad. Perhaps this therapist will tell you a full and proper impeachment proceeding will make you get out of your funk. It’s worth a try.

    • SayItWithWookies

      I still haven’t seen the look on his face that says he realizes he helped cause this. Because he’s still in the Senate wearing a shitty blue suit instead of wearing sackcloth and ashes, pushing a heavy stone up a hill while scourging himself with a cat o’nine tails embedded with the press-on nails of a thousand Republican mistresses and dipped in a bucket of bald eagle tears and televangelists’ bile.

      Be real nice if mcconnell slipped on a pile of optically scanned vote cards and fell down a flight of stairs and landed head first on a stack of scanning machines.

    • BillEGoatSmirk

      The Grim Turtle was smiling like a pig in shit at one point during that presser, which looked truly odd in general and was out of place. In our local paper, a commenter posted, “he probably ran a handicapped van off the road on the way over to the White House”.

  • Duke

    It is worse than I ever imagined.

    Each week, and nearly every day is a new low.

    I think Evan is near exhaution expressing disgust. I thank him for his results.

  • susan_g

    “I’ve been amazed and disappointed by so much of what this
    President had said, and his approach to running this country, which
    seems to be one of just a never ending divisiveness. But his comments
    today about those who have lost loved ones in times of war and his lies
    that previous presidents Obama and Bush never contacted their families,
    is so beyond the pale, I almost don’t have the words.

    This man in
    the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become
    large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of
    his, but to do it in this manner–and to lie about how previous
    Presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers–is as low as it gets. We
    have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually,
    emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office and the whole world
    knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work
    with this President should be ashamed because they know it better than
    anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it.
    This is their shame most of all.” –San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich

    • ddslover

      His aides and advisors are actually worse than him! They KNOW he is insane and not fit for this but they’ve got their sweet, sweet Whitehouse gigs, paid for by us of course, and so they cajole, distract, pacify and puff the idiot up believing they are being “loyal” and supportive. They are all fucking losers just like their dear leader and they will all deal with the shame equally… I’m looking at you John Kelly.

  • Persistent Tennessee Rain

    He was on the golf course when the bodies were sent to Dover which isn’t very far from where he was. I’m sickened

  • MAZS

    and Mitch says………? [crickets]

    • James

      He could have at least elbowed him, like Melania did during his failure to put his hand over his heart during the National Anthem . . . I believe in Wingnuttia that’s called “disrespect of the flag.”

  • Relativicus

    He’s very smart, you know.

    The worst thing about his lie about most other presidents not calling is it will distract from his double-backed triple evasion on having done and said nothing about four dead soldiers. Dead soldiers, it should be noted, who would be front page news for the next three to seven years under President Killery.

    The second worst thing about his lie is there will be someone out there saying he’s technically correct because most presidents didn’t have the telephone.

    • James

      As I noted down below, my mother still has the telegram from President Johnson on my father’s death in Vietnam. There are more ways to personally contact someone than by telephone.

      • Hemp Dogbane

        Speaking of mothers and fathers, Kelly needs to sit Dotard down first thing in the morning and make him write out a proper statement honoring and mourning those men, even if it’s tweeted out. So what if it’s late, so what if Kelly restricts the stream of moronic bullshit into Dotard’s ears daily? How about if he gets Dotard to display a bare minimum of human decency for someone holding his office?

        • blaid droog

          Impossible. Human decency is not a concept in a psychopathic mind.

      • blaid droog

        Just not by telegram.

  • Delu

    You know why Trump is able to lie so much and so effectively?

    It’s because those lies often get treated as Something Serious.

    Instead of getting him shitcanned like they should.

    This is the trouble with letting lies into the free market of ideas, it usually ends up taking over the place.

  • James

    Gaa. Callista Gingrich was just approved by the Senate to be the Ambassador to the Holy See. Nevermind divorced Catholic and all that.

    It would be delicious if she presents her credentials to the Bishop of Rome, and Francis says “no, I don’t think so. Can I get you a cab to the airport?”

    And when Assmouth went back into the White House everyone hid, because they all knew that the first person he saw was going to be working into the evening writing those letters he’d written over the weekend.

    • Toledo Window Box

      I was so hoping an intrepid reporter would ask him why anybody would possibly not mail them immediately.

      • blaid droog

        Where would you find this “intrepid reporter”? DC is nowhere near where Dok and Rebecca live. Evan is closest but he’d still have to fly there.

  • Wookie Monster

    At this point, we shouldn’t at all be surprised Trump does shit like this. It’s a well-worn pattern: Trump spews some bullshit that just popped into his head and when called on it, shrugs and says, “That’s what people (never named) have told me.”

    This is what someone with no regard for the truth does.

    • Toledo Window Box

      The only rational, effective way to deal with a non-stop liar is to ignore them as much as you possibly can.

      Hence, our once-in-planetary-history dilemma.

      • Wookie Monster

        Unfortunately, it’s too late to ignore Trump now that he has the football.

    • HooverVilles

      Trump has been telling and showing people who and what he is for a very long time. We should not only now be surprised. Nobody should have been surprised before the election!
      But,
      1) There were the purity voters who couldn’t vote for Hillary because she didn’t support literally everything they wanted.
      2) There the people who believed the false equivalency between Clinton and Trump and voted for Trump because he was an “outsider” or something.
      3) ~ 90,000,000 apathetic voters who in a large degree thought that Hillary was obviously going to win so why bother with the inconvenience of having to vote.
      Sigh/Grrrrr
      Every eligible voter – vote in 2018!
      Do not repeat 2016!

        And, 4) “He’s a businessman who’ll run government like business.”
        Fine, except government ain’t a business and, even it were, he’s an absolutely horrible businessman.

        • HooverVilles

          Forgot that one. Thanks!

  • Toledo Window Box

    Donald Trump at this point, and going forward I’m sure, is the most embarrassing and inept major world leader in human history.

    • Erala Contratista

      Not a leader in any sense.

    Once again he’ll try calling during the actual funeral and hope to be put on speaker phone for the attendees, much as with Heather Heyer.

  • blaid droog

    I especially liked the “deranged animal” line.

  • freakishlypersistent

    Blaming “his” Generals again. Anyone covering for him at this point is complicit. The hook was needed 10 months ago.

  • What Alyssa said after trump said that thing was even on the news here in Australia.

    ABC did an article on it I believe.

    Now, most of the worlds people hate him and think he’s a deranged psychopath with his fat finger on the nuclear buttons.

    I don’t think he has much longer, and I think he knows it.

    That was refreshing. But I am now returning to my previous state of being totally burned out on the endless Trump scandal/presidency. When is this going to fucking end?

    So after Cheeto-shithead accused President Obama of bugging Trump towers and being a secret Muslim from Kenya, the media is suddenly surprised at this latest revelation https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3c13bcf8c3f6a0407c72f509d00e6190d52941728f2936b35dd0e7b26c5b1227.png ?

    The Cheetolini presidency demonstrates that not all “white trash” are poor, by any means.

    Not only Trump himself, but the Kochs, the Mercers, the DeVos brood of vipers, and most of the other big GOP backers–and indeed, their new master Putin–fit the category which the late, great Hunter S. Thompson called “White Trash With Money.”

    Voting in primary elections should be restricted to party members, so that McDucks like the aforementioned Rich White Trash cannot spend godzillions of bucks on propaganda blitzes to bamboozle “morans” into voting for wingnutty outsiders.

    Alternately, we should go back to the “smoke-filled rooms” and be done with it. As a step toward this, if and when the Cheetolini regime crashes and burns, the GOP could adopt the Democratic “superdelegate” system, or invent a system of their own which serves the same purpose. A Left-Wing Id version of Trump (the candidate of the Right-Wing Id) could never have won the Democratic nomination.

  • jhill123

    He could have called all the families from the turn on one of his golf outings. He’s had four during the last two weeks. Instead of grabbing a burger he could have made a phone call or two.

  • Deborah Ujevich

    Also let’s not forget the Yemen raid, 6 seconds into his nonpresidency, the one that WEAK!! SAD!! Obama wouldn’t approve because everything about it was dubious, but that he OF COURSE blamed on Obama when it went to hell. And the fallen soldier’s dad REFUSED to talk to stupidhead.

  • Deborah Ujevich

    And OF COURSE American hero Pete Souza has the pics to prove EVERYTHING happened, his Insta was updated recently to show a photo of both Obamas with the parents of a KIA soldier, IN THE WHITE HOUSE, i.e., not waiting at their mailbox weeks later.

  • rocktonsam

    I’m more worried what the fuck is wrong with the people who voted for him and the people who constantly clean up his messes.

  • susan_g

    The orange moron’s obsession with Obama is limitless. Obviously, the russky pee tapes exist. Cheeto probably believed Putin when he gave him a copy of it and told him that it was the only one.

  • Gussie Jives

    And the Republican Party and the Republican base will back him every step of the way. Every batshit step.

    What really bothers me about NMPdjt is that other people around the world think that we, (thinking, rational, human, Americans), think that he is not fucking insane. Hey! Rest of the World! We know that Donnie is a danger to us and to all y’all.

    We should apologize to the entire world each morning and throughout each and every day for Donnie. BTW, the world seems to have plenty of RWNJs at large right now…we are sorry about that also.

  • 52camellias

    McConnell’s body language stance is priceless. His eyes are slanting towards the Donald, while the rest of his body is saying “Running away! Running away right now!”

  • Laura911

    It’s completely unbelievable to me that this man would rather tell a lie, even when the truth is easier.

  • Cornelius Fussbudget

    Man, I haven’t seen a shot of Mitch at this event yet where he wasn’t absolutely fucking seething. Like he is visualizing himself stabbing Trump with a rusty chainsaw. Maybe he always looks like that these days?

  • Whollyholeyholy

    He wrote letters to the deceased? “Ramble ramble ramble derp.” It’s just amazing that one person can have absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever. And 47% of white people are too belligerent to be bothered with noticing.

    • sgt. jmk of the résistance

      I’m willing to bet the ranch that those letters were written by one of his admin assistants and just signed by him.

      • Odd Jørgensen

        safe to assume said aides were busy writing them as Dumpy was giving his argle bargle speech.

  • greyXstar

    I’m convinced he’s not from this planet. Even histories greatest monsters had at least one positive attribute that got people on their side.

  • ziggywiggy

    Maybe his babysitters could get him to play the quiet game. Tell him Obama could only stay silent for 4 hours, and if he can beat that time he’ll get 3 scoops of ice cream! He’ll cheat but it would quiet him down a bit.

    I know the rules, I have been here for years. Is it okay to say I wish someone would stuff votes down his fucking throat till he croaks??????

    The Turtle looks mighty solemn. His expression never changes even through the worst of the bullsh… crap. Though he is shifying around quite a bit. Perhaps when he hears lies about Barry Bamz coming out of that hideous baby butt mouth he realizes just for a fleeting second how f’ed up it sounds and recognizes that the chickens have indeed come hom to roost!
