The Simpsons Trolls Trump On Puerto Rico [VIDEO]

Rolling Stone reports:

The Simpsons‘ resident bartender Moe helped step up relief efforts for Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria with a video that both raised money and trolled Donald Trump. In the minute-long video, Moe personally addressed San Juan mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who clashed with Trump in the aftermath of the devastating hurricane.

Moe also subtly mocked Trump, who infamously tossed paper towels to hurricane victims upon arriving in Puerto Rico. “Madame mayor, I personally know what it feels like when someone comes and throws paper towels at you,” Moe said.

“In my case it was flaming toilet paper, but the principle is the same: It is humiliating, even though it is clearly a cry for help.”

  • JCF

    Moe for President!

    • Blake J Butler

      Eh. Hank Azaria instead, Moe’s kinda an asshole.

  • Nice.

  • liondon#iamnotatraitor

    …while Chuck Schumer has Martinis with Trump.

    • Leo

      Who’d you rather have leading the Dem. caucus? Liz? Bernie? Al?

      • Lars Littlefield

        Obama.

      • liondon#iamnotatraitor

        Chuck Schumer should be leading with a clear message of Medicare for all, infrastructure Bill-..etc.

    • Uncle Chuck Schumer is doing good work and calming me down Thanks God. Nobody likes me when I am mad.

    • Lars Littlefield

      Trump don’t drink alcohol.

      • PickyPecker

        And him saying this makes it true….how?

      • McSwagg

        I’m sure he takes regular “coke” breaks.

  • Leo
    • SoCalGal20

      As I said in the previous thread her book should be called “Donna’s Burn Book” instead of “Hacks”.

    • Blake J Butler

      His mouth runs wild that’s one of his problems, Obama caught that on quickly, you had o’malley, Chaffee and Hillary. Bernie doesn’t count because he never has and still is not a democrat.

      • Beagle

        Webb also ran briefly. But he was the worst of the candidates.

  • shellback

    Moe’s voice dropped a few octaves since the last time I saw the show.

  • Treant

    I’m surprised Fox didn’t refuse to run the “ad” because it’s “too provocative” and “would bother their viewers.”

    Just give us a buck and a half of silence before the show starts.

  • MikeBx2

    O/T: I know this article has already been shared, but it’s Keith’s comment making my head explode. No , it wasn’t “flaws in her campaign” it was despite all she was up against. Stop it, just stop it…

      Despite Russian troll farm infestation, likely Russian collusion, tampering with voter rolls and racist voter suppression, a culture of malignant sexisim, and racist opposition campaign by demagogue, she STILL got 3 million more votes.

      The biggest criminal the world has ever seen who has never been charged or convicted of any crime, despite 30 years of nearly nonstop investigation. That’s Hillary

      • MikeBx2

        Exactly!

      • -M-

        No kidding. If she got away with all the supervillian stuff she’s been accused of I definitely want her on our side.

      • LeeCMH

        Hmmmm. 30 years of investigations and no charges.

        Could it possibly be all the charges over 30 years were generated by hateful Christians who hate Hillary as much as they hate fags and African Americans.

        (Animus based charges, with no facts)

  • SoCalGal20

    AWww I saw the San Juan mayor’s tweet but I didn’t see the video. Thanks for posting, Joe!

  • Bambino

    Even a show like Supergirl has been “highlighting” the incompetent moron this season.

  • SoCalGal20

    How do you owe $7 BILLION in back taxes? Also I hope he goes to jail. And I hope his daughters are also investigated and lose all their money.

    • Sam_Handwich

      it was an innocent mathematical error

      • SoCalGal20

        Yep! Nothing to see here!

        • -M-

          … and carry the 10 to the ninth…

      • Tom Furgas

        After all, zeros mean “nothing”, right? So all those zeros after the 7 mean “nothing”, right?

    • crewman

      In other words, the entire amount he spent promoting Breitbart, Milo, and other anti-American, pro-Trump voices was probably paid for by money that wasn’t his — money “borrowed” (stolen?) from the American tax payers. He moved us dangerously close to a new civil war. He deserves to rot in prison.

      Trump can’t pardon that.

    • Natty Enquirer

      It’s his LLC that owes the money, not Mercer personally.

      • Karl Dubhe

        Yah, but the LLC is mostly him, isn’t it? 🙂

        • Natty Enquirer

          He is one of four billionaire principals.

      • Halou

        $7 billion is hardly a ‘limited’ liability.

        • Natty Enquirer

          As I’m sure you know, the limit is to the liability of the investors, not the company.

          • Tulle Christensen

            Yea it means the IRS cannot seize Mercer’s assets to pay the tax only assets the company owns, I see a bankruptcy in the near future for the company so the IRS will see none of the 7 billion

          • Natty Enquirer

            It really depends on whether the Trump administration scratches Mercer’s back. Which is difficult to do with the increasing heat of criminal investigations.

      • SoCalGal20

        It’s his hedge fund, yes. That made him a billionaire.

      • Judas Peckerwood

        i.e., the “corporate veil” that allows major financial criminals to go scot-free.

        • Natty Enquirer

          Thanks to the government they bought and paid for.

      • Friday

        That’s like owing us fifteen or twenty big Republican-cancelled programs and all they did.

      • D. J.

        It had to do with financial “baskets” which took short term investments and profits were supposed to get taxed at long term rates. His company was warned (along with many others) that it would likely be disallowed. Most companies stopped the practice, but he refused to, thus his company ($97B) now has to pay the $7B. They can afford it.

        • Dazzer

          Her Angela Merkel is always the highlight of the show for me.

            I complained about DLST my entire life. Nothing I did to effect a change in the asinine idea of DLST came to anything. So, I’ve done the next best thing.

      • Cuberly Deux

        Yep, I remember that some engineers were claiming that just the back-fill alone would take a year because of the difficulty of securing it in place to protect it from erosion.

    • UrsusArctos 🐻

      When things are required we can still perform engineering miracles in the US. Post Katrina the USACoE built a flood barrier that most people outside the upper Gulf Coast have never likely heard of. It was design built and took a bit less than 5 years. It had been discussed/argued about for over 40 years. It’s roughly equal to the vaunted Deltawerken flood control structures in Holland. Due to differences in surge risk the 45′ Lake Borgne surge barriers only bring protection to the 100 year range for New Orleans, while the Delta Works 45′ height give the Dutch 10,000 year protection from North Sea flooding.

    O/T: I thought you all would find this Electoral-Vote article interesting (it’s the second story on the site today. I skip the first paragraph):

    Now that legal experts have had a few days to parse the charges that Mueller did (and did not) file, his master-level strategy is becoming apparent. The decision to charge George Papadopoulos with just one crime, when he probably committed a dozen, is pretty basic stuff when it comes to striking a plea deal. However, the charges against Paul Manafort (and Rick Gates) reflect much more sophistication. Thus far, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager is only on the hook for financial crimes that predate 2016. This is more than enough for now, since the goal is simply to get Manafort to flip on Trump.

    But what if Trump pardons Manafort? Well, that is why Mueller has left tax fraud, soliciting stolen goods, and other crimes uncharged—so that he can take this show to state court, as needed, and beyond the President’s pardon power. Normally, it would not be necessary to proceed so cautiously, since it is generally possible to prosecute the same crime at the state and federal levels without double jeopardy attaching. In other words, a person could be prosecuted for federal tax fraud, pardoned, and then still be prosecuted for state-level tax fraud. But although this is the usual situation, there are a few states whose laws forbid prosecution of a crime that’s already been adjudicated at the federal level, most notably…New York.

    Adding it all up, and it is as plain as day that Mueller has not only left himself a backup plan, but that he has specifically got New York in mind, if needed. So, Trump cannot save Manafort, something that Manafort’s attorneys will soon point out to him, if they haven’t already. Which means he will have to decide between doing time in the big house to save his former boss, or to flip on Trump.

      Trump and his lawyers know all this as well. Must be hell for him. Good! Thanks for sharing this.

    • McSwagg

      And this is why we read weeks ago that Mueller was investigating the limits of the power of the President to pardon. Quite clever workaround.

      • PickyPecker

        Don’t need the shitgibbon escaping. Think of the mess.

        • McSwagg

          I don’t have to “think” of the mess. All I have to do is look around at the mess that he’s already created.

      I still think Manafort has done the maths and has concluded that he is going to be far safer and more alive in the hands of the Feds than he will be on the streets if Putin has set his sites on him.

    • Lars Littlefield

      LOL! The idea of Manafort in prison reminded me of a horror/mystery we watched last night. Early in the movie a woman on the board of directors of an investment fund, a well turned out 60ish woman, asks a nominee to their board, “Have you ever experienced a hard 12-inch black cock rammed up your ass?”

      • popebuck1

        Don’t leave us hanging – what was his answer?

        • Lars Littlefield

          The prospective nominee said, “Oh, uh, you mean if I mess up and put the fund in jeopardy I might find myself facing jail time?”

          I’m paraphrasing. The movie was called How to Ruin Good Health, or something that meant that. I wouldn’t recommend it. But the photography of the Swiss Alps was nice.

  • Karl Dubhe

    O/T Is it reasonable to ask strangers in an apartment building that has a common laundry not to touch their laundry if it’s in the washer? Especially on a Saturday…

    • McSwagg

      That’s generally good manners unless the laundry sits in the washer for hours after the cycle has finished. Then it’s fair to remove it as it’s preventing others from using the machine.

      • Karl Dubhe

        I guess I’m rude. 🙁

        • TuuxKabin

          I guess you’re real.

          • misterjack

            A long time ago, I was washing/drying an expensive (for me) comforter in my then apartment’s community laundry room. When I went down to get my comforter out of the drier, it was gone –stolen.

            I was so angry. I mean, who steals someone else’s damn bedspread? I ended doing what any sane person would do, I drew an upside-down pentagram on parchment paper with some fake satanic symbols at all five points, and drove an eight-penny nail through a chicken liver, through the center of the pentagram, and into a wooden post in the laundry room. I added the following note: “to the person who STOLE my comforter out of the drier…YOU ARE ACCURSED!”

            Never got my comforter back.

          • TuuxKabin

            That’s taking a good wicked creative side to express you anger and get it out. I hope that person is still sleeping restlessly and looking over their shoulder.

        • McSwagg

          I’ve lived in apartments with common laundry rooms. I’d say anything longer than 10 to 15 minutes after the cycle has completed is rude on the part of the person occupying the machine as they are infringing on your use of it on a busy weekend. You’re not necessarily rude for removing their clothes from the machine if they’ve been negligent in their respect for the needs of other residents.

          • 2guysnamedjoe

            Doesn’t matter how long it is; the offending neighbor will bitch at you anyway, if they’re so inclined.

          • McSwagg

            Yeah, this one filed a complaint with the manager. A couple days later, the manager mentioned it to me and I told her that the wet laundry had been sitting in the machine for over an hour. The manager told me there was no problem. Of course there were signs posted in the laundry area that stated that unattended laundry may be removed from the machine.

        • Amanda B. Rekendwith

          No way, no how.
          Not rude at all.

    • PickyPecker

      Usually, it is common courtesy to not touch others’ laundry. I have to add, tho that back when I had common service laundry, I did remove other laundry from the washing machine after said person did not return to do it themselves…..keeping others waiting isn’t polite. (note: I would carefully put them into the dryer and pay)

      • Karl Dubhe

        I just put it on the counter. The person complained that I had touched their stuff, I thought them nuts.

        I don’t use the dryer, so…

        • PickyPecker

          Overall, I found it beneficial in buildings I lived in that had shared services to get to know as many of the people as possible. Helped with communication on things.

          • Karl Dubhe

            I’m at a point where I don’t want to live where I am… 🙁

          • PickyPecker

            Been there. I can sympathize. Put out feelers for alternatives. Something should show up.

        • Lars Littlefield

          Ewwwwwwww! Now they have Karl Dubhe cooties!

          🙂

        • Amanda B. Rekendwith

          My response would have been that if they didn’t want their stuff touched, they had an obligation to be there when the wash cycle ended rather than assume that their time was more valuable than everyone else and that blocking use of the machine was their option.

          • Karl Dubhe

            It’s always afters that I think of things like that, or others suggest them. 🙂

            Never when I actually am in the confrontation. Ah well, I emulated Brave Sir Robin; left smoke trails as I ran away. Err, strategically repositioned.

      • whollyfool

        Wow. That’s incredibly thoughtful that you would put them in the dryer. It’s beyond thoughtful to pay for the dryer. You are the best neighbor!

        Just to mention though, if some of my stuff mistakenly goes in the dryer, it comes out toddler size. 🙂 (I am not toddler size.)

      • marshlc

        Well, I don’t leave my laundry sitting for more than a couple of minutes at most, but if I did, and if you put it in the dryer, I would not be very happy with you, as most of my clothes can’t stand dryer temps.

        Clothes left for more than fifteen minutes or so are piled on the table that the management thoughtfully supplied right next to the machines. In my building, it’s not unusual for me to come in, do my two loads and dry my towels and sheets, and the load I took out of the washer first thing is still sitting on the table.

        Of course, in my building, it’s not unusual for a homeless person to be sleeping in the laundry room. I guess none of my stuff is their size, because nothing has ever been stolen.

    • Sporkfighter

      It depends. If I need a washer and your wet laundry remains untouched for, say, 30 minutes, your return at your convenience comes at my expense. I’d wipe down a horizontal surface and pile your stuff there so I could get on with my own Saturday laundry.

      • Amanda B. Rekendwith

        Your are too kind. My wait limit is 5 minutes.
        In 30 min, I could throw in a nice red hankie in a load of whites and run the cycle one more time. 🙂

        oopsie!

        • McSwagg

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        30 minutes? How about 30 seconds? If they’re not there when it’s done, too bad. You’re only taking it out of the machine, not trashing it.

        • John30013

          At first I was going argue that 30 seconds is too strict. But everyone has a timer on their smartphone, so there’s really no excuse (barring some actual emergency or unforseen circumstance) not to be there on time

    • Tulle Christensen

      If the clothes sit in the washer for more than 20 minutes I suggest donating them to Goodwill, and when they complain tell them you did it for the Goodwill

      Touch… or fondle?

      • Karl Dubhe

        Touch. I was yelled at because I pulled someone’s laundry out of the washer. 🙂

        Barely paid attention, other than to make sure I didn’t chuck the stuff on the floor.

            It took a minute to realize you were referring to the handy “block” feature of Disqus. I too have read many one sided exchanges in these threads.

    UGH, so Brazile had threatened to replace Clinton as the candidate? And Brazile claims Clinton “bought” the DNC.

    Um, the disconnect at work here is concerning and begs a ton of questions. First question, what exactly is Brazile doing in bringing this random red meat for the far right to exploit? Half-truths, conjecture? Delusions of grandeur…can the head of the DNC randomly swap out the candidate?

    “DNC head Donna Brazile considered replacing Clinton with Biden after candidate fainted during campaign: report”

    https://www.rawstory.com/2017/11/dnc-head-donna-brazile-considered-replacing-clinton-with-biden-after-candidate-fainted-during-campaign-report/

          • McSwagg

            That metaphor works on soooooo many levels ….

      • Lazycrockett

        Also now that The Clintons have exited the political arena there is gonna be a lot of haters from the past coming forward to dis them at every chance they get. Something they were too cowardly to do when they were in the game.

    • Lazycrockett

      Donna doesn’t have the power to replace a candidate.

      • Cuberly Deux

        Yeah, that claim is just…uh….wut?

      • John30013

        The DNC *does*, but only if the candidate dies or becomes disabled and unable to continue as the party’s nominee. Clinton fainting or tripping or whatever Brazile tried to spin this as did not rise to that level. This is Brazile trying to make a mountain out of a molehill and promote her book (and herself, apparently).

    • Lars Littlefield

      The cray cray is rampant with this Brazile person.

      • Cuberly Deux

        Yep, that and I’m beginning to get the whiff of a vendetta at work here.

  • Lars Littlefield

    OT: So, this just happened.
    I just received a phone call from a “National survey company.” No other identification.

    Them: Sir, how many people between 18 and 45 live in your household?
    Me: None.
    Them: Sir, how many people between 46 and 65 live in your household.
    Me: One. (Luiz is still a kid in his 50s).
    Them: Sir, are you black or African American?
    Me: Neither.
    Them: Thank you for participating sir and have a good day. “click”

    WTF?

    • PickyPecker

      You’re much kinder than I am. I’ve taken to hanging up on all survey calls. Don’t care who they’re from. It’s MY phone.

      • Tulle Christensen

        I got called by PPP once and truthfully answered their questions as I knew who they were, all others I get out the dice and roll for the answers I give

        • PickyPecker

          I finally had to tell my BANK to stop friggin calling me about my ‘experience’ with a recent transaction. So unnecessary. I use drive-thru a lot, so there really IS no experience to speak of. They’ve contracted with some company to get any sort of positive thumbs-up so they can brag about their service (no matter how small, I guess).

          • 2guysnamedjoe

            Just tell ’em the sun poured in like butterscotch and stuck to all my senses.

            Wells Fargo? They are desperate for positive feedback these days.

      • McSwagg

        Years ago, after moving to a new city, I got a phone survey call. Initially it was a lot of generic demographic and opinion questions, but then they started to ask very detailed, very specific financial questions, which I declined to answer. After the second one of those, I terminated the call. I figure it was a phishing expedition cloaked as an opinion survey.

      • Lars Littlefield

        Normally, I just answer the phone and don’t say anything, making them identify themselves. If it’s a robo call, the call spiel is initiated once a human voice has said something. If you don’t say anything the robo caller thing or person ends the call.But I’m waiting for a particular call today. Luiz knows to text me instead of calling.

        Obviously, I’m not black enough and no one likes me! Bwaaaaaaa!

        • AmeriCanadian

          I do that too. Sometimes a person is on the other end. I like to think that I’ve kept someone else’s phone from ringing while they say hello five times.

    • McSwagg

      You didn’t conform to their predetermined demographic so they ended the survey at that point. Can’t have the “wrong people” muddying up their survey results.

      • kareemachan

        We’ve been getting canned calls from some resort in FL. The woman in the recording warmly praises us for enjoying their hospitality last time around and wants to give us a special offer. You’re then supposed to – via phone – give them information. I’ve never gotten past the first question about annual income. Once I keyed in $10,000 and once $1,000,000,000. Both times I then got the ol’ “I’m sorry but you do not fit our offer.”

        Bummer.

        PS – we’ve never been to and really do not want to go to FL.

    • misterjack

      I stopped answering the phone, a long time ago, if I don’t recognize the number.

      • djcoastermark

        Bingo. And if it is someone who does need to reach me, leave a message. I usually call right back if it’s someone I wish to talk to.

      • Homo Erectus

        Me too. When I turned 64, my phone rang continuously with anonymous callers offering to explain Social Security benefits or offers to manage my retirement income. Jeez Louise!

    • David Gervais

      My usual strategy is to ask the caller if you will paid for the use of your data. They are selling your data to their client; as a supplier of some of that data, you should be paid too.

      They will take off their calling list, it costs them for every call and it is a waste if they don’t get any info. So far, no-one has reported to me that they were offered payment for their time and data.

      I assume you are in the US. There is a place to call about unauthorized calls, someone here please post the info. I think you were the target of a ‘phishing’ scam; genuine survey companies identify themselves properly.

      “If a nominee became disabled” the DNC chair would call the full DNC to agree on a replacement….how is that any kind of threat? That is not very much power given to Brazile

      What kind of mental health issues does this lady have?

      • kareemachan

        It sounds like a combination of pushing her book and having a special snowflake hissy fit.

    • coram nobis

      Ms. Brazile “accused top Clinton campaign aides of treating her like a slave, recalling in her upcoming memoir how she told them that she would not stand to be treated as their “whipping girl”.”

      http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/358777-brazile-hit-clinton-campaign-for-treating-her-like-a-whipping-girl

      There’s also this:

      Brazile recalls in the book how she would remind Clinton campaign officials when she became frustrated that she was empowered as DNC chairwoman to remove a candidate if she felt it was necessary. At one point, she writes, she weighed replacing Clinton and her running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) with then-Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.).

      • THAT would have been a massive fuck-you to democracy. Some paper-pushing tyrant she’s turning out to be.

        • coram nobis

    Sidebar story: The Hill is worried the cartels can exploit Puerto Rico’s situation.

    http://thehill.com/opinion/international/358779-the-heightened-risk-that-puerto-rico-will-become-a-new-base-for-mexican

    Puerto Rico’s wrecked infrastructure and dysfunctional finances and politics make it a target for Mexico’s drug trafficking organizations (“narcotraficantes” or “narcos”) looking to diversify their transport channels to North America.

    And if the narcos succeed, they will put the RICO into Puerto Rico.
    — lede

    • GayOldLady

      Donald Trump has the RICO market cornered at the moment

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      Desperate populace. Power vacuum. What more could a drug cartel ask for?

    • CharlestonDave

      With Netflix cancelling House of Cards, they have open space for a 3rd season of Narcos, right?

    • Tulle Christensen

      I think it is so cute when people write about gangs. OK, first for the Mexican gangs to move in they would need to displace the PR gangs, not an easy task

      There would be a protracted gang war and would violate current gang agreements. Such a territory war would most certainly spill over into the mainland.

      So in a addition to gang shootouts in PR you would see an increase in them in Mexico and Calif and Chicago

      It would be a big blow to the current uneasy peace and the division of territory and hurt drug profits

      I think it is cute he thinks Junior is not able to run the gang from inside prison

    Whatever you do, do NOT send money to the Red Cross. They keep most of it for salaries, expenses, advertising, what-not; very little goes to the people in need. I don’t know what the head of the Red Cross makes, but I’ll bet it’s not chicken feed. But what I hate most about the Red Cross is how they deceptively have workers drive empty trucks around the disaster area to give the impression “Don’t worry, folks; we’re here to help, we’re on it!” What bullshit.
