Trump Congratulates Guam’s Governor Because The Nuclear Crisis Made Him “Extremely Famous” [VIDEO]

The New York Post reports:

President Trump phoned the governor of Guam on Friday to assure him all the residents of the Pacific Island are safe. A video shows Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo laughing and joking with the president as they discuss everything from the readiness of the US military to tourism.

Trump opened the conversation by telling Calvo, “Good morning, good morning. Great to speak with you. Good morning. I just wanted to pay my respects and we are with you 1,000. You are safe. We’re with you 1,000 percent. I just wanted to call and say hello.”

Trump later says, “We’re going to do a great job for you. All over the world they’re talking about Guam. Tourism is going to go up ten fold. It looks beautiful.” Calvo agrees. “It’s paradise.” And he told the former hotel magnate, “We have 95 percent occupancy and after all of this stuff calms down we’re going to have 110 percent occupancy.”

      I know it’s unpopular but I think the only way to get chicken hawks to shut the fuck up is to bring back the draft so even if it’s not them risking their lives, it’ll be their friends or children or their friend’s children who could come back either in a casket or with a limb. They have to have skin in the game in a way they don’t now, so they don’t just consider it a dick measuring contest.

      The all volunteer army has its advantages in that they’re motivated to stay and make a career out of it. However, a military draft would make the army less homogenous and make people more aware of the sacrifice and the problem of just staying well past the due date.

      • ceeenbee

        The problem is the shitgibbon and its whole shrewdness of pampered shitgibbon friends will buy their way out of the draft for their shitgibbon spawn just like the shitgibbon’s sperm donor did for it.

      • Rich kids always found an out. Either through officer school or simply hiring a doctor to issue a phony “bone spurs” medical exemption.

        One of the reasons the draft was done away with was because mandatory service had become discriminatory, economically unfair, and racist.

        • Skeptical_Inquirer

          I was thinking of striking at the non-military part of the GOP base. When they contemplate the real possibility of having a stump where a foot or hand used to be, they might (I say might) have less truck with people eager to make them or their intimates into hamburger while skipping out on it themselves.

          • JustDucky

            Millennial and Gen Z are our base. You’re calling for turning our base into “hamburger.”

            The non-military part of the GOP base is too fucking old to be drafted.

        • Adam King

          During the Civil War draft people of means could just pay some poor guy to enlist in their place.

        • UrsusArctos

          Other countries get around that with National Service, no exceptions. OK, you’re scared of the military, fine, we have schools to build in rural areas or VA hospitals/senior centers that need aides.

          • Strepsi

            I’m a bleeding heart in many ways, but I always kind of wish we’d had mandatory service in Canada, at least cadets. I learned “basic training” of life, including how to make a bed and work out, and discipline, too late. Seriously.

          Lord Dampnut’s base, though, is centered on non-college-educated Caucasians. They’re instant cannon fodder. It won’t solve the problem but it will slow the chickenhawks a little.

          And what, in 2017, in the appeal to poor communities of color as a means to get training and career skills and the occasional citizenship, is not racist/discriminatory/economically-unfair about the “all volunteer” service the US now has? The ONE distinction from the draft is that today’s recruits have the illusion of choice in the process.

          Being an officer is an ineffective way of avoiding military service.

          Full disclosure: I was not an officer.

      • greenmanTN

        I agree with you in a way. They have no skin in the game so it’s all too easy to send other people’s children to war while their own are comfortable in (sometimes purchased) placement in Ivy League schools. I was in one the last years of having to register for the draft at 18. There was no war at the time so it didn’t seem likely, but still…

        I would have hated the military I think, but the only way to make the warhawks view this as something other than a game of oneupmanship, Stratego, or Battleship is to put THEIR children, boys AND girls, in the same pool of risk, no exceptions.

        National Service makes more sense. The army doesn’t want people who don’t want to be there. It craters morale and readiness. Let some of those “bro-flakes” clean toilets in a VA hospital if they can’t handle a military life.

        The one thing they learned in the disaster of Vietnam is to never repeat a draft. They don’t want riots in the streets.

            I know, of course, that at different times in history different body types have been considered attractive, but at this point, in US society, I don’t think most straight men are into that look.

          • Skeptical_Inquirer

            She’s gone on record saying she didn’t have silicon stuff in there and even did an X-ray for her TV show. She could have had her own fat injected there though.

          • Reality.Bites

            I’m not a follower of trends in cosmetic surgery, but I thought injected fat gets reabsorbed pretty quickly.

          • Skeptical_Inquirer

            I’m guessing she could do it on a regular basis.

          • m_lp_ql_m

            I’ve always thought it was fat cells they were injecting, not just fat, so the cells stay where they are pretty much.

          • Reality.Bites

            TBH, the extent of my knowledge is from articles about penis enlargement 25 years ago or so when they were getting media attention. Articles mentioned men would get fat injected along with the snip of the thing that holds in an inch or two.

            They also pointed out that nothing could increase the size of the glans, and of course the added fat under the skin would make the erection feel less firm. I “think” I remember reading that the fat would disappear too, but we’re talking a long time ago.

            I wonder if people are still going in for that.

        Amazon has a great locker system in urban areas (and in the University City part of town, a storefront for pickups).

They dont have my brand preference on a couple of items but not many. I also have instructions on my account to place orders in storage door inside carport. So, as I see I’m running low on something I add it to my cart and when ready I just log in and checkout, usually from work. I get home and all that’s left to do is put it away. I never pay for two hour delivery so its free except for tip I make when I place order.

      I like to think the horse knew him and threw him off on purpose.

      Ah, the irony. You young whippersnappers won’t remember, but Robertson was in hot water for horse racing. He claimed he had no idea that people gambled on horse races…

  • i am so hoping my applicant for a sublet takes this place over the other two he’s looking at. he’s the most perfect transperson i’ve ever met. i kinda fell in love yesterday, interviewing him. i love the trans community so much. it’s kind of my soft spot. all i want to do is protect and shelter them. if this makes me sound like a silly person, i accept that. but it’s always been true for me, i don’t know why.

    He is beyond Douchedom. He has left Douchedom and is way out somewhere in some uncharted, invisible universe. The guy is worthless and is just wasting resources. Stop using up our oxygen orange freak.

    Today is the big Nazi rally in Charlottesville. Last night was just a warm up. Here are some things to counter that.

    President Obama and family, and many others, marching in Selma.

    The lovely story of a man who saved a bunch of children from the Nazis and what happened when his family learned many years later that he’d done that.

    And counterprotestors gathering in Charlottesville yesterday, preparing for the big rally today.

      Forwarding to my cousin in the bay area. You’ve read my message? She wrote, “have your friend spend the night here, Juan and I are used to and enjoy putting up strangers.” See you sometime after the 27, the 28th or 29th? Prolly 29th better as other cousin will be returning to Sacramento.

        I totally disagree. Half-wit is giving her far too much credit. 🙂

      Find a half-dozen female sex workers to turn her on?

      (I’m pretty sure half-wit princes from all countries want that)

    Sooooo, about last night. Did we enjoy the spectacle that was Charlottesville? I hear today is going to be equally exciting, especially with the Oathkkkeepers there.

    Again, feeling the need to be creative so as to allow myself a distraction from making myself sick worrying about Esteban (because he would kill me if he knew), I once again got silly with my visuals.

    So, without further ado, I give you ‘Les Déplorables’, the musical.

      I was late reading your news and just wanted to wish the both of you the strength you’ll need over the next few weeks. All the best, Jean-Marc.

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        Aww thanks sweety. He’s up right now but he’s a little miffed…the Doc won’t allow him to watch news or even read the blogs. “Nothing that can set you off young man.” To say the least, my little hot blooded Latino husbotter is, shall we say, being pouty. He’s so adorkable when he’s miffed. Still, we brought him movies to watch, so it’s all good.

  • SoCalGal20

    I stand corrected on a comment I made last night, sort of. The KKK WILL be involved in the Unite the Right rally today. My understanding from hearing some discussion on one of the Sirius Progress shows the other day is that they would not be involved but maybe there was something I missed. I don’t think they were part of last night’s Nazi march, though. Anyway, I just wanted to put my correction out here. Here’s a summary of the groups or types of groups involved in today’s hate event.

        He’s got lackeys for that. They present him with two portfolios a day with flattering pictures and news stories. How many different ways can you spell ‘loser’?
