Donald Trump! So maverick! Such outside the box! Other presidents said things that were actually true, because they were low-IQ wusses. But Donald Trump is a REAL MAN. He speaks and then makes it true with his giant, sexy manhands!

On October 17, Donald Trump went on the radiobox with Brian “Rapey Eyes” Kilmeade and said that he’d personally spoken on the phone to the families of every soldier killed in action during his presidency.

[T]o the best of my knowledge, I think I’ve called every family of somebody that’s died and it’s the hardest call to make. […]

Now, sometimes if you had a tragic event with – it’s very difficult to be able to do that. But I have called, I believe everybody but certainly I’ll use the word virtually everybody where during the last nine months something’s happened to us all. I’ve called virtually everybody.

At which point, the entire White House Press Office shit their pants at once. AGAIN. Because they knew damn well that Trump hadn’t even called half the Gold Star families. They’d just spent all of Monday cleaning up after President Logorrhea got realtime fact checked at the podium for claiming Barack Obama never called families of soldiers killed in action. And now they’d have to Make It So, Number Two, while sitting in a puddle of flop sweat and … number two.

Roll Call broke the story of the scramble in Trumpworld to get a list of soldiers in front of the president so he could shout SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS, KTHXBYE during Hannity’s commercial breaks.

Not only had the president not contacted virtually all the families of military personnel killed this year, the White House did not even have an up-to-date list of those who had been killed.

The exchange between the White House and the Defense secretary’s office occurred about 5 p.m. on Oct. 17. The White House asked the Pentagon for information about surviving family members of all servicemembers killed after Trump’s inauguration so that the president could be sure to contact all of them.

And that’s how Donald Trump wound up telling the pregnant widow of U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson, “he knew what he signed up for … but when it happens, it hurts anyway.” Because when you’re racing to catch up nine-months-worth of condolence calls, sometimes you just accidentally act like a raging dick. Totally understandable.

And then came the feud with Rep. Frederica Wilson, John Kelly shredding the remainder of his credibility, and the subplot about Trump promising the family of that veteran $25,000 and “forgetting” to send it. All over a period of seventy-two-hours! JFC, we are tired.

And we know that SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS LYING ABOUT A THING is not actually a real story. News would be Sanders saying, “We apologize for misspeaking,” instead of, “How dare you call us out for lying!” But Roll Call reminds us again why this woman pisses us off so much.

On Oct. 18, the day after the president’s aides had sought and received the Gold Star family data from the Pentagon, a reporter at a White House press conference asked Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders whether Trump had in fact contacted all the families.

“The president’s made contact with all of the families that have been presented to him through the White House Military Office,” she replied. “All of the individuals that the president has been presented with through the proper protocol have been contacted through that process.”

Why stop at telling an obvious lie when you can throw some poor bureaucrat under the bus, too? Huckabee Sanders who got her B.A. from a tinyass Baptist College in Arkansas and went on to manage a presidential campaign, which is a thing that only happens when your dad is Mike Huckabee(!!!), is perfectly happy to lie about enlisted guys who have no such nepotistic advantage. It wasn’t that Trump was busy golfing and tweeting shit at black football players — it was those goodfornothing military slackers who couldn’t be bothered to follow protocol! Obviously the Commander in Chief isn’t allowed to show respect for fallen soldiers unless he gets a memo from some lieutenant in the White House Military Office.

Because when your boss gets caught lying, BLAME THE TROOPS! And then lecture us all on the propriety of calling out a retired general when he tells a blatant lie about a black woman. Have we said FUCK YOU, SARAH lately? Because really, FUCK YOU, SARAH! FUCK YOU!

    Look, there is a protocol. If you want your grieving next of kin to get a call from Twitler – and the goddesses alone know why you ever would – you’re going to need to be white. And you’re going to need to die in a way that isn’t embarrassing for the administration.

  • Toledo Window Box

    Any sentence that comes from the mouth of Trump is likely a lie, but when it starts with “To the best of my knowledge, I think…”, it is without question a lie.

    • Gayer Than Thou

      The best of his knowledge is … not very good.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      “Believe me!” is the absolute tell of a total fabrication that would make Joseph Goebbels blush.

    I wish the press corpse would call out her bullshit. And I want a pony.

    • Toledo Window Box

      They need a signal amongst themselves, at which point they all say in unison “That’s a Lie!”

      • SDGeoff3

        “Ms Thing, do you really believe what you just pulled out of your ample lying ass?”

    • Everrett Fanuelli

      I think in some instances, at least with “Sloth” Huckabee-Sanders, the press tries to, but she moves the goal posts or becomes accusatory when they do call out her bullshit.

      • eggs ackly-wright

        Maybe it would be better if they just laugh at her after her “answers.”

    • SDGeoff3

      She’s more difficult to clean up after.

    • Anna Elizabeth

      This. I was a teenage Republican, until Iran-Contra and Oliver North. North was a disgrace to his uniform, as is John Kelly.

      • SDGeoff3

        I voted for St Ronnie the first time, being a dumb young republican, due to ignorance and being poorly informed. Six months later, I wasn’t a republican anymore. It was a miracle, I tells ya! A miracle!

        • Anna Elizabeth

          :D

          I was a military-mad teenager. Ronnie Raygun made us Badass again, I had posters of F-14s and nuclear-powered warships next to Samantha Fox and heather Thomas on my walls.

          And then, Iran-Contra. I still wanted to serve, but I was a Liberal that wanted to serve.

        • BeachBum

          Ya know, I got a lot o’ water, but no wine. So…

      • BeachBum

        I was a Republican because they were the party of Lincoln and Civil Rights. Ike sent troops to Little Rock to integrate and warned of the “military industrial complex.” Then I woke up one morning in Nov of 1964 and the country had flipped. By 1968 and Nixon’s Southern Strategy, it was clear I had to ride the donkey. Still riding.

        • Anna Elizabeth

          I hear you. There is nothing inherently wrong about being Conservative. I would argue that modern GOPers are the antithesis of true conservatives.

          My big sticking point is my privacy, my right to be myself, to love whom I want to love. I can compromise on national defense, on budget items, and other things.

      In a statement responding to the video on Friday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders subtly revised Kelly’s statement in an effort to defend it. “Gen. Kelly said he was ‘stunned’ that Rep. Wilson made comments at a building dedication honoring slain FBI agents about her own actions in Congress,” Sanders said.

      Youj drop the Huckabee and it looks like you have “SS” in the White House.

        True Story : About 2 months ago in the produce part of the grocery store, a little boy about 4 was running around with a plastic bag on his head. I stopped him and told him to take the bag off his head or he’s gonna die.
        (I may have been emphatic in my volume and choice of words here)
        So he does, as well as quite shocked. While I’m still “explaining” the non-safety features of plastic bags, his mom comes over, grabs his hand, and takes him away. She says nothing so I yell “you’re welcome.” Got some nice avocados and peaches too.

        • Nice intervention. Too bad you couldn’t tie mom’s tubes together with the bag.

          Geez – I forget when IBM pulled out of Kingston. It was sometime in the early 80s, I think – I graduated in ’78, was going to interview with them there, but decided to accept an offer with another company instead ( You know, “bird in the hand” deal ).

          I don’t think Ulster County has recovered from the economic loss yet….

          • bupkus231

            Sure it was Kingston? I was sure they closed it down earlier than that ( I was back and forth several times a year visiting family up until last year ). Maybe Poughkeepsie? They kept that facility open many years longer – may still have a presence there. They used to run shuttle buses ( full-size Greyhounds ) for employees several times a day between Kingston and Poughkeepsie…

            They also used to manufacture at least parts of the 360/380 line of mainframes down in Fishkill…

    Young subscribers flock to old media

    Shunning Trump, the millennial generation does what it once resisted: pay for news.
    By JASON SCHWARTZ 10/21/2017 06:59 AM EDT

    As President Donald Trump wages daily war against the press, millennials are subscribing to legacy news publications in record numbers—and at a growth rate, data suggests, far outpacing any other age group.

    Since November’s election, the New Yorker, for instance, has seen its number of new millennial subscribers more than double from over the same period a year earlier. According to the magazine’s figures, it has 106 percent more new subscribers in the 18-34 age range and 129 percent more from 25-34.

    The Atlantic has a similar story: since the election, its number of new subscribers aged 18-24 jumped 130 percent for print and digital subscriptions combined over the same period a year earlier, while 18-44 went up 70 percent.

    So, before you can be citizen, in most cases, you have to be a legal permanent resident for a varying period of years.

    We give preferences to certain people based on their relationships to US citizens or legal permanent residents, and based on what countries they are from.

    Here’s the kicker, according to the absolute most recent bulletin, if you are the brother or sister of an adult U.S. citizen from the Philippines, they are just now getting to your request from early June…of 1994.

          I’m guessing that they figure if they delay for family-based residency applications, there’s always a chance that the resident will die and thus moot the application.

      TRUMP’S POPULARITY SOARS FOLLOWING USE OF BABY AS HUMAN SHIELD
      “This is the moment he truly became President” says CNN panel

      President Donald Trump is basking in the warmth of surging poll numbers following his use of a supporter’s infant as a human shield at a rally in Bumblechin, West Alabolina on Friday. The mother of the child broke down in tears when interviewed after the event, prompted by the sight of a shadow that looked a little like the type of gun that it’s already not OK to own though we await further crucial opinions from the NRA about exactly what kind of gun it looked like the President might have been shot to death with and will update as it comes in.

      “I’m just so proud that my little Donald Jr Jr was the one chosen by ALL OF OUR PRESIDENT Donald Trump to protect his sacred body from the liberal hater in the crowd. I knew what I was signing up for when I applied for tickets, and I stand by MY president, and for the anthem!”

      UPDATE: The NRA has been in contact and has clarified that the thing that looked like a gun was in fact a folded piece of paper, and have questioned why we are not debating paper safety as a consequence. “Paper cuts are really painful, and their victims often have to live for years after suffering them. Why are we not talking about screening people who want to buy paper?” said Dana Loesch, a spokeswoman for the group.
      The man with the paper remains dead, having been successfully overcome by freedom carried by Trump’s security team. “If he’d had a baby too, maybe none of this would have happened.” Loesch added.

      • Amy!

        It’s extremely reassuring to know that this reality has media so familiar from that other reality.

  • Mehmeisterjr

    It is no secret that the White House Press Corps has been supine before Republicans for decades.

    That they are lately showing a smidge of backbone suggests that when Trump fires SHS and replaces her with the more amenable James Guckert, a few of them may object in a muted, respectful fashion.

  • Rachel Book Harlot

    I’m not sure how this works so maybe one of you guys can school me, but wouldn’t a president be notified immediately if a service member is killed in action? Because if so, that means Trumpkins knew when each one of these incidents happened but just yawned and went back to watching Faux News and shitting on twitter.

    • covfefesumgame0005

      he might have been told, but since he considers then Tin Soldiers he passes right over all that

    • Amy!

      I think that it depends on how fast the president in question is processing them through his Kill-for-Prestige machine (or actual war, though that hasn’t happened for a Very Long Time).

      It’s hard to imagine a president being given the list of the names during the Tet offensive, for instance. I’m pretty sure that GWB didn’t get all the names, especially during the surge. Could be wrong; we have a lot fewer deaths happening since the seventies. But for Donnie?

      They can’t brief Donnie effectively. Giving him the names of dead soldiers would most likely have provoked another tantrum: “That’s not my fault! Why are you telling me, huh? Go find Crooked Hillary! Go tell that ni[clang]! He’s the one that sent them!” (I can’t know that that’s true, but it takes absolutely zero imagination to picture it, in full living orange).

    cute story, follow the link for pictures and the rest:
    https://digbysblog.blogspot.com/2017/10/friday-night-soother_20.html

    “A sweet story about a girl and the birds she feeds:

    Lots of people love the birds in their garden, but it’s rare for that affection to be reciprocated. One young girl in Seattle is luckier than most. She feeds the crows in her garden – and they bring her gifts in return.Eight-year-old Gabi Mann sets a bead storage container on the dining room table, and clicks the lid open. This is her most precious collection. “You may take a few close looks,” she says, “but don’t touch.” It’s a warning she’s most likely practised on her younger brother. She laughs after saying it though. She is happy for the audience.

    Inside the box are rows of small objects in clear plastic bags. One label reads: “Black table by feeder. 2:30 p.m. 09 Nov 2014.” Inside is a broken light bulb. Another bag contains small pieces of brown glass worn smooth by the sea. “Beer coloured glass,” as Gabi describes it.

    Each item is individually wrapped and categorised. Gabi pulls a black zip out of a labelled bag and holds it up. “We keep it in as good condition as we can,” she says, before explaining this object is one of her favourites.

    There’s a miniature silver ball, a black button, a blue paper clip, a yellow bead, a faded black piece of foam, a blue Lego piece, and the list goes on. Many of them are scuffed and dirty. It is an odd assortment of objects for a little girl to treasure, but to Gabi these things are more valuable than gold.

    She didn’t gather this collection. Each item was a gift – given to her by crows.

    She holds up a pearl coloured heart. It is her most-prized present. “It’s showing me how much they love me.”

    Gabi’s relationship with the neighbourhood crows began accidentally in 2011. She was four years old, and prone to dropping food. She’d get out of the car, and a chicken nugget would tumble off her lap. A crow would rush in to recover it. Soon, the crows were watching for her, hoping for another bite.

    As she got older, she rewarded their attention, by sharing her packed lunch on the way to the bus stop. Her brother joined in. Soon, crows were lining up in the afternoon to greet Gabi’s bus, hoping for another feeding session.”

    • Rachel Book Harlot

      That’s awesome!

    • Paul Dietzel

      OT but there was a show on PBS a couple seasons back about crows and how smart they are. But, being smart, they’re kind of reckless, sort of “devil may care”
      and many die in adolescence just because they like to have fun and take chances. And how when they establish dominance in a particular tree or forest lots of hummingbirds take up residence there too because the hummingbirds know that ain’t nobody (Blue Jays, I think) who’ll take a chance messing with crows just for a little hummingbird snack.

      • Dept. of Space Tacos

        hummingbirds are awesome. Mom feeds them and we look forward to seeing them each year.

        I saw a crow (or a raven) downtown yesterday in a tree right over my head. I made sure not to piss it off, cause they remember faces. He wasn’t actually black, but a very very dark blue.

        • Anna Elizabeth

          We have lots of crows and/or Ravens in my area. Beautiful and intelligent birds, I adore them.

          I got buzzed by Hummingbird Thursday. :) What lovely little creatures they are.

          • Dept. of Space Tacos

            the feeder hangs just outside the kitchen window, it’s fun to see them looking in at us (or their reflection, I dunno which).

          • BloviateMe

            Hummingbirds are gangsters. When I had a feeder, most their time was spent attacking and chasing each other away from the feeder. I got to where I’d fill the feeder at night, because they weren’t opposed to buzzing me for fucking with their feeder. Aggressive little shits.

    Just got home from a couple of day in the hospital from doing a free-style face plant the other night. I got up to go make toilet about two in the morning when ALL OF A SUDDEN SMACK! my face meets the floor. Luckily I did not take the opportunity to make toilet while unconscious.

    And luckily my roommate heard the kerfuffle and called EMS. I got to spend a couple of days making sure I hadn’t done a real mischief to myself and making sure nothing scary was going on. I got fed lots of percocet and lime jello.

    I happy to report I’m back home with a banged up face and a slab of bruised ribs for my trouble. And more percocet.

    The point is this: watching these latest embarrassing Trump shenanigans while drifting on opioids does not make the lies and finger-pointing easier to swallow – not one little bit. So what the hell are Trump’s fans on, anyhow?

    • Anna Elizabeth

      Oh, I’m sorry you were injured. Glad to hear you are at home again.

      • It was very weird. Like somebody flipped off a switch. The doctors figure my blood pressure must have bottomed out when I stood up. It does tend to run a bit low. There was some some talk about my gallbladder being the culprit but two hours lying under big whatzit marked RADIATION HAZARD proved that to be horseshit.

        • Anna Elizabeth

          ~hugs~ Low BP is something I’ve dealt with, it’s gotten more to nominal as I get older.

          Please take care of yourself. :)

          • Jacob DiCiaula

            I take pills on the high side. Guess it’s live and learn?

          • Anna Elizabeth

            I think so. I used to get “White Coat Hypertension” due to anxiety, but with all my walking I have a great resting heart rate and nominal BP. I watch myself because Mom had serious Hypertension.

          • Jacob DiCiaula

            I’m fairly ambiguous on continuing to exist but my wife has a fairly emphatic opinion. To be fair, little boys do need to go to soccer games and I am good at making sure he has shin guards and a water bottle.

            I have the same anxiety on getting blood pressure taken. Pills suck but work. Hope you’re having a nice weekend!

          • Anna Elizabeth

            Taking care of yourself is a good thing, Jacob. Good On your Spouse. :)

            I am indeed. Being slack today, it was a busy but glorious week. :) I hope you are enjoying your weekend too. :)

          • Jacob DiCiaula

            Thanks :). Best to you and yours.

            And, I don’t say it enough, but I was blessed with an amazing and gorgeous partner.

            The fact we’ve had conversations about my death notification is both odd and baffling. That she’s rolled with that punch is entirely a credit to her :)

          • Anna Elizabeth

            She sounds like quite a woman. The way you write about her does credit to you both. :)

          • Jacob DiCiaula

            Haha, thanks and she’s great. Most spouses haven’t tried cases against on another, but we own that corner :)

          • Anna Elizabeth

            That’s awesome! Sounds like a Meet-cute movie almost. :)

      If anyone ever tells you that bruised ribs are worse than broken ribs, believe them.

      I was in an accident and the entire left side of my rib cage was bruised. My doG, that was brutal. You can’t laugh, sneeze or cough without being in severe pain and it took six months before the pain completely dissipated.

      • The next morning I got the hiccups, which was not fun – not one bit.

        • Cogswell – In a Mirror, Darkly

          oooooh, I forgot to mention hiccups.

        • Miss Dill

          Ugh…best wishes for your recovery but it’s gonna take a while. BTW, booze is a very good painkiller. ; )

      • Miss Dill

        Yep – I got thrown off a horse 4 weeks ago and my ribs still hurt. First couple weeks were really nasty – could barely breathe – couldn’t get in and out of bed or the bathtub. I’m a believer now…bruised ribs are the WORST!

        • Cogswell – In a Mirror, Darkly

          I was in a near head on with a semi tractor that decided to turn in front of me at 55 mph. I had to inch my way in and out of bed for doG knows how long.

          Take my word for it, a 2005 Jeep Liberty is a very sturdy vehicle.

          • Miss Dill

    I remember when POTUS fueded with Mr. Khan. John Oliver had an off hand joke about him not believing it possible for a president to not be able to deliver condolences to grieving military spouses.

    My better half mentioned she’d prefer not to get a call from the President should I get blown up while deployed. She just wanted a call from my company commander, who she knows is a decent guy.

      • Lefty Wright

        Remember, Mueller was just appointed in mid May. Giving him just two weeks to get offices set up and a few hires, and he has only had five months on a very difficult investigation. Since Pence is waiting in the wings and Trump has not launched any nuclear missiles yet, I would rather Mueller set up an iron clad case on many people, including Trump, than a show trial on a few underlings.

        • OutOfOrbit

          so you’re okay with mueller not interfering with tRmp’s continuity .. unless tRump starts a nuclear war…and then?… if mueller hasn’t got enough sap by now to at least get that OPOS off the Football, then we’ll see either the 25 Amendment used, or that orange fuck WILL go nuclear

          pffft

          • Dudleydidwrong

            I don’t think Mueller can interfere with tRump’s continuity until Mueller has built an unassailable case, or series of cases. My patience, too, is wearing thin (and my age means I don’t buy green bananas) but I’m willing to wait. It’s all I got right now.

    Even if he was still a general, John Kelly shouldn’t expect any extra deference, or refuse to answer questions except only from reporters who have family members in the military.

    But he’s not a general any more. He is a political figure who works for the fucking moron and the American people. He gets paid by the American people. If he doesn’t like being held accountable, he should get the hell out.

    The theory that Kelly was one of the “adults” in the room saving us was always bullshit, but I hope this week put it firmly to rest.

      Generals have the right to tell us what to do in war. They can tell us when, where, and how to fight. They can tell us to die for our country. They cannot tell us what to believe. Or what opinions to have. What to value. Certainly not to agree with them. He couldn’t do it when he was a general. Of course not now.

    Not only had the president not contacted virtually all the families of military personnel killed this year, the White House did not even have an up-to-date list of those who had been killed.

    Ahem. This is what STAFF are for. Non-partisan, competent civil service staff, not overpaid bootlickers who spend all their time trading shifts to keep the Manbaby-in-Chief from making an ass of himself (and to no one’s surprise, they can’t even manage that.)

    “The president’s made contact with all of the families that have been presented to him through the White House Military Office,” she replied. “All of the individuals that the president has been presented with through the proper protocol have been contacted through that process.”

    I see your weasel words there, Sarah Schmuckabee Panders. If the Great Tangerine Fail-Weasel didn’t call your family it’s because the White House Military Office fucked up. Nice try.

    Y’know, if you’re about to order a bunch of under-equipped, under-trained grunts to die in a pointless war because it massages your ego and makes you feel good, it’s GENERALLY a good idea not to insult them first. They might find themselves wondering who the enemy really is.

    • Duke

      An amazing thing is that Trumpkins really believe he cares about them and understand their lives. You know the SOB really thinks the soldiers who volunteered are losers. He likes generals because they have that regal bearing he believe that he has.

      He’s a shallow jackass who knows that most people are manipulable.

      • theCryptofishist

        He likes those shiny medals that generals have, also, too. Shiny is good.

    • John Thorstensen

      I think that “under-equipped, under-trained” isn’t really accurate these days. Wars these days are largely being fought with a relatively tiny number of lavishly equipped, highly trained soldiers.

      Who, as we have all seen, often die, and often return in a truly terrible state, either physically, or mentally, or both.

    some pertinent facts about Kelly from the ACLU

    As the General in charge of the Guantanamo Bay Detention facility, Kelly publicly criticized efforts to close Guantanamo (Source) and was accused by Obama Administration officials of working to undermine the President’s efforts to close the facility. (Source)
    Opposed and publicly criticized the integration of women into military ground combat units, arguing it would lead to lower standards. (Source)
    Defended the use of “enhanced interrogation techniques”, such as waterboarding and rectal feeding. Kelly went on to dismiss the criticisms of human rights groups as “foolishness”. (Source)
    Testified in support of an officer caught urinating on talibani corpses. (Source)
    Supports the imprisonment of terror suspects without trial. (Source)
    Criticised by Amnesty International for his “unsafe and inhumane” treatment (Source) of Guantanamo detainees on hunger strike to protest their imprisonment. (Source)
    Supports the war on drugs and opposes legalization or decriminalization of any drugs, including marijuana. (Source)
    A proponent of border security, Kelly believes that “no wall will work by itself” and has warned about the “existential threat” that unchecked migration poses for the nation. (Source)

      Oh, what we call an all rounder.

    • Petunia Cat

      Thank you! Thank you Zippy, thank you ACLU. I knew there was going to be shit like that. The “existential threat” of immigration I heard about already. But this is a batshit crazy right wing guy I said to myself even before I read this comment. We all need to start seeing General Kelly as another Dick Cheney. Good, now I feel better.

      Also everybody in the media needs to stop parsing “what Trump said to Myeisha Johnson”. We know what he fucking said, he said those shitty words. Now he may have been told to say something else, like the crazy Klingon warrior thing that Kelly is peddling. And Trump with his linguistic problems turned it into the crappy thing. But so fucking what? He said that. He is vile. And an inhuman cyborg. Just kidding he’s really just a psychopath.

        An inhuman cyborg would be an improvement.

      No amount of makeup would make me want to hear Hucklebeast moan.

    Sarah learned to lie from the master. Her dad Mike “the big liar” Huckabee. Someone should ask her at the next presser if her brother was really kicked out of the Scouts for killing a dog.

  • Theodore Rigley

    These folks are just authoritarian suck-ups.

  • pgjack

    Sanders must just not give a damn about the American public. She seems happy to stand there and lie day after day. So yeahs, fuck you Sarah. And please tell you father to go fuck himself.

    • guppy06

      Public, shmublic, she knows who signs her paychecks.

  • 52camellias

    Reading this article made me laugh. I would like to blame the cheap alcohol, but I am afraid I find that the thought of the White House running around like a chicken with its head cut off to cover up one of McCheeto Face’s lies — just so he could dig himself into a bigger hole with the Gold Star families — to be totally hysterical.

  • MsEdgyNation

    What is wrong with her face? Is Huckabee Slanders really all lopsided, or does she just appear distorted when viewed through the cognitive dissonance field her little brain generates to protect itself from facts and logic?

    • Petunia Cat

      LOL! No, she’s drunk.

    • Maggielle

      Honestly? I think no one has bothered to school her in public speaking and how to present yourself on camera, and it’s all part of this whole administration’s approach to, well, everything. Like making sure the president has an updated listed of combat casualties, or making sure that the president has a large placard in front of him when he makes the phone call with phonetically spelled words so he can get the damn names right. Or somebody to explain to every member of his administration who encounters the press that it’s okay to say Niger because now we all have learned that it’s nee-ZHAIR.

      Doing TV stuff is work. Maybe some people are naturals, but most of us are gonna need coaching and practice sessions and critiques. But these people don’t care.

    How can you tell that Sarah Hillbilly Sanders is crooked? He face is trying to escape in three different directions.

  • Sheesko

    Why does Sarah Huckabee Sanders wear water bugs on her eyelids? Is what I want to know.

    • The Militant Homosexual Agenda

      After they crawled out of her vagina where did you want them to go?

      • Maggielle

        Ew no. Stop.

    • leslie

      her eyes are virtually two different shapes and sizes….i m literally face shaming her

      • Maggielle

        Yeah, we’re doing that a lot. But it’s so damn hard not to. Also, I think it is not face-shaming when we note habitual face expressions, like sneers, or like Tucker Carlson’s blank face expression, and lordy, Sarah has a repertoire. But the water bugs on the eyelids – hers are especially clunky, but lately every woman on TV seems to have to have some form of fake eyelash crap pasted on and frankly I am tired of it. Yes! This is what makes me mad. (Not really.)

  • mailman27

    Now, sometimes if you’d had a tragic event with- it’s very difficult to be able to do that. But I have called, I believe everybody but certainly I’ll use the word virtually everybody where during the last nine months something’s happened to us all. I’ve called virtually everybody.

    I still can’t get past our president’s* raving gibberish. Call me shallow, but shouldn’t we expect better?

    • Moldy Weißwurst

      From Shitgibbon Pufferfish?!? No.

    • Petunia Cat

      YES! We should be able to. Plus he’s clearly losing his train of thought. He is so horrible. Also I’m not satisfied that everyone has denounced John Kelly enough. Or for the right things. He lied. Like a common Trump. Motivated by the weird bitterness of the megalomaniac who expects everyone to kiss his ass even when he’s done something wrong and awful. I don’t want to hear one more goddamn positive thing about John fucking Kelly. Sorry that rant went a little OT. And wasn’t even directed at you mailman27. So thank you for your time. 😁

    • Smibo

      That’s one of his more coherent statements, too. Yet, like a stopped clock, some parts of the shit he habitually spews from his face-sphincter are (gasp!) actually accurate. In this case, it’s his use of the word “virtually”.

      I’m sure he meant for us to hear “virtually all” in the common use that means having the same practical effect as “all” without necessarily including “all”. Like if you said “virtually all women hate Bill O’reilly”.

      But there’s another nuance to the word when we say things like “virtual reality”, or “virtual private network”. In those cases, the word is used to express the idea that the “virtual” things in question share every characteristic of their actual, real counterparts, except for one critical difference; they don’t actually exist.

      Exactly like his phone calls to the gold star families. Virtually all of them.

      • Toledo Window Box

        Genius.

      • The Militant Homosexual Agenda

        Virtually all of them. Literally.

  • Zyxomma

    Thank you, Five Dollar Feminist. Fuck you, Sarah Huckabee Sanders (with someone else’s dick, of course, I don’t want to contaminate my Steely Dan).

    • Xylem

      They’ll never get past the mudflaps.

  • this country says it’s about

    SH-Sanders asymmetric logic makes me think of a local right-wingnut politician’s speech. In his speech he said, “God isn’t done with me yet!” I know it’s shallow to ask, Sarah, but is that the problem with your brain…..and your moral compass?
    The columnist covering our local politician interpreted the “God isn’t done with me yet!” phrase by explaining that maybe by that “he was explaining why both of his hooves weren’t cloven.”

  • Stulexington

    You know, every other president had these people who took care of making sure the president was informed about things like this. They called these people “staff.”

    • The Militant Homosexual Agenda

      Now we call them “nannies”.

    • Sakonyachen

      Every other president was dealing with problems as they arose. This president creates a new problem every time he finds an internet signal or a microphone. I feel bad for his staff, but “they knew what they were signing up for.”

  • Donna Mueller

    she looked GREAT last night on SNL!!

    Report: White House Rushed Condolences To Gold Star Families:
    At least three families said they received express-shipped packages from the White House after Trump claimed he called “virtually everybody.”

    What’s the betting that the content of the letter was rushed as well.
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

    Dear (insert name here),

    Sorry to hear your son/husband (delete as applicable) died during service but he knew what he was signing up for.

    Yours

    Lets get facts right: Troops are for serving the president. The President does not serve the troops.

    • Bill Diaz

      This is either a masterwork of Poe-ist sarcasm or you are A IDIOT!

      Have a great day!

      • Maggielle

        Is IDIOT, and is now blocked, according to my own personal protocol.

        • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

          Wise choice, I thought he was a Poe also.

          • Odd Jørgensen

            A quick peek at the comment history reveals A Idiot, bigly.

          • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

            Oh thank you, blocked him. It is hard to tell these days. I love a good satire.

          • Sakonyachen

            I just assumed it was snark. I have been wrong before. Probably in the five or so minutes before this.

          • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

            I like to think the best of people too. I generally assume they are in this case more intelligent, than they are.

          • Sakonyachen

            And now mine as well. Thanks.

          • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

            Ah, well, It is a hard position, do you laugh with them and risk being rude if they are serious. I do love a good snark also but feel a bit stupid when they are being, well themselves. I even liked one of WT’s comments once. Then I felt dirty after he mansplained something that was so bad I thought oh, you cannot be serious.

    • Odd Jørgensen

      Do people tend to either laugh at you a lot, or tell you to fuck off? Cause I feel both are appropriate here. Now fuck off!

  • Kooolest G

    to paraphrase david frum, if you knew that the president you worked for was terrible at throwing a baseball, you wouldn’t send him out to throw out the first pitch at a game, so why on earth would anybody think it’s a good idea to have trump call the families of dead soldiers and try to be empathetic

  • Oblios_Cap

    She looks … unbalanced. Literally.
