Sen. Tom Carper On How To Get Bloviating Trump Off The Phone: Tell Him He’s Brilliant And Just Hang Up

The Hill reports:

A key Democratic senator who attended Tuesday’s meeting on tax reform with Trump administration officials recounted to The Hill trying to get off the phone with President Trump.

Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) said National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn and White House legislative affairs director Marc Short came ready to listen; the president – who joined by cell phone – less so.

Trump “was ready to talk and talk and finally…after 15 minutes,” Carper said he turned to Cohn to tell him, “We’re not going to have a real conversation here – can’t you just tell the president that he is brilliant and say we’re losing the connection and then hang up?”

      Nothing strange about seeing deer splat on Rt 30 between Columbia and York on the work commute.

      • canoebum

        I have family right in that corridor. Until my mother passed away I’d visit three or four times a year. My sister lives in Columbia, my mother lived in York fo many years.

      Just re-tweeted, so apt.
      Yep, totaled car, broke collar bone, shattered foot( hit tree ).
      Surgeon told me to hit the deer next time.

      • Jonty Coppersmith

        Probably best to hit the deer, but we had a case in the area a couple years ago where someone hit a buck, it went through the windshield and impaled the driver’s chest on its antlers.

    • Lazycrockett

      Growing up in the sticks when and not if, you hit a deer you had to call the local sheriff who would call area folk who would come out. take it away and butcher it.

          They recently allowed licensed individuals to pick up fresh killed edible wildlife. LEOs have a list of people to call. I read of one local family that keeps their freezer well stocked with venison.

      • William

        Those folks live down the road from me.

    • Galvestonian

      Don’t drive thru W.Va. at dawn or twilight … deer everywhere.

      • peacfulseas inWA

        Mountain passes are the same here in WA.state. One August heading over Blewett Pass to a hot rod event with our 7yr.old niece along we came upon a killing field. It was about 9 AM and there was blood and twisted up deer carcasses for 3/4 of a mile.In a ’34 coupe you’re about 10 inches from the windshield so had to distract. I also back way off the throttle after seeing the first area of carnage. Had to be big rigs that hit most of them, very little debris and the kills were very fresh.

        • Galvestonian

          I understand that there are some States that pick up fresh kill and distribute it to the Salvation Army Kitchens and other homeless shelters in an effort to alleviate hunger for the poor.

          • RoFaWh

            Illinois (so I’ve read) sends out the wildlife people and they move the carcasses to suitable locations to benefit bald eagles.

          • peacfulseas inWA

            Yes, they do that here. Fish and game also supply SA kitchens with illegally caught salmon and dungenes crab,clams as well as road kill. We’re 1.5 hrs north of Seattle and outside the city is quite rural and forest. I have a house 6 blocks away that I have my mom in. Lots of shrubbery and fenced backyard and just 10 minute walk to center of town. I have to check for deer in the yard before letting our Yorkie out when we visit everyday. There are several deer who jump the 5ft fence and bed down under the various shrubs and bamboo

          • JCF

            Yup, an excellent kick-ass chick action film. The 90s had several of these. [“The Fifth Element” and (personal fave) “The Quick and the Dead” come to mind.]

          • greenmanTN

            Never saw that one. I have a theory about why I like female driven action stories. Male ‘heroes’ reminded me of the jocks/bullies I had to put up with in school, and heroines don’t come with that added tension.

          • JCF

            I think it’s actually much better than that trailer indicates (also, I note that Russell Crowe, in 1995, doesn’t even get billed here!). Sam Raimi, co-creator of Xena: Warrior Princess, has essentially given us a blonde gun-slinging Xena here. One of my favorite Sharon Stone performances.

    • kareemachan

      Three deer hit (that were reported) on our island this last week. The sheriff’s log always makes for interesting reading….

      And I’ll repeat my Kareema’s Law of Cervine Behavior: If you see one deer dart across the road in front of you, SLOW DOWN. There’s always a second deer waiting until the last possible second to try to follow. Many times, they don’t time it right.

      Good on you, John. Why is it guys who actually served instead of bone spuring out are against torture.

      • Paula

        I believe he has first hand knowledge of it.

      • Friday’s_cat

        With the exception of those Western PA NG who went to Iraq as prison guards.

      • Miji

        I fully endorse turning bone spuring into a verb for draft dodgers using questionable medical excuses. It’s a little awkward, but maybe it could catch.
        On your further point, I think Paula is right about it being in part because of his direct experience with being tortured as a POW that makes McCain so outspoken on the issue. I don’t know what the approval level of torture is among regular enlisted soldiers, but one would hope that they have been well informed and are against it knowing that knowledge by our enemies that the US would torture prisoners gives license to our enemies to torture our soldiers that may be captured (not that all of our enemies would require that license being given).

      McCain needs to take off the gloves and go after Drumpf with a vengeance before he dies. If he really imagines himself a hero for democracy, he should pummel the closest thing this country has ever had to Hitler.

        Over his lifetime, I think he has shown that he’s got the balls to be tough. He hasn’t always shown that in his political career, but when he has needed to, he has done so.

        • Todd20036

          He needed to pick a VP who was qualified to run the country.

          He failed.

          He managed to introduce the notion that the POTUS was an entry level job.

          His balls were in his wallet for most of his life until he got a death sentence.

          And if you still are skeptical, ask me if he voted to confirm Gorsuch, the stolen SCOTUS seat

    Carper is no prize. Alleged wife beater, screaming at some woman he was in auto accident with, and yelling at elementary school kids 5-6 years old) “Do you know who i am? I am the governor of your state” when they were noisy during a school assembly.

    And I can attest it is impossible to avoid shaking hands with him if you meet him at some social event in Delaware. He just grabs your hand from wherever you try to hide it. Ewww! Next time, I’ll try telling him he’s brilliant and running away–haven’t tried that yet because my nose is big enough as it is.

      Just do a fake cough into your hand and extend it to him, he will run instead.

      • I love trolling your classical selections Billbear! Ah great music in honor of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. I also like this music, that incorporates the great “Dresden Amen”, the end of Wagner’s Tannhauser, the Pilgrim’s Chorus — https://youtu.be/REPvgHbQd7g

        • billbear1961

          One of the greatest moments in music!

          • Wagner is so melodramatic. “Tell that Knight Tannhauser he will not be forgiven for having sex with that slut the goddess Venus unless this dead branch that I give these visiting pilgrims from Wartburg blossoms on their march back from Rome!” says the Pope. Elizabeth, the pure, Tannhauser’s jilted fiancee, meanwhile prays that night that she may die so she can plead for Tannhauser’s redemption directly at the throne of God. God grants her wish. The pilgrims arrive from Rome with the flowering branch, and Tannhauser discovers Elizabeth’s corpse with a smile on her dead face, knowing that her wish has been granted. Another Wagner Opera ends with a dead diva!

          • Mike__in_Houston

            Wagner’s whole philosophy, as expressed in his operas, can be summed up in seven words: “If you have sex, you gotta die.” And there is sometimes collateral damage, such as Elisabeth, mentioned above. It’s no coincidence that Wagner’s second opera, Das Liebesverbot (Forbidden Love), was based on Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure whose theme is a Viennese law that expresses that same philosophy, and that he made it into a rollicking comedy to boot.

          • My German is not so good. You want to laugh? I thought Das Liebersverbot was about a “boat” but I guess that is the “Flying Dutchman”. Now I know!

    A Suburban Uprising

    New York Times: “The American suburbs appear to be in revolt against President Trump after a muscular coalition of college-educated voters and racial and ethnic minorities on Tuesday dealt the Republican Party a thumping rejection and propelled a diverse class of Democrats into office.”

    “From the tax-obsessed suburbs of New York City to high-tech neighborhoods outside Seattle to the sprawling, polyglot developments of Fairfax and Prince William County, Va., voters shunned Republicans up and down the ballot in off-year elections. Leaders in both parties said the elections amounted to an earsplitting alarm bell for Republicans ahead of the 2018 elections, when the party’s grip on the House of Representatives may hinge on the socially moderate, multiethnic communities surrounding major cities.”

            They may or may not be gay, but they sure were willing. Who directed this picture, anyway? Coach? Yearbook photog? Either way, can you text me?

            NOTA BENE

            That football is carefully positioned so that its white stripes and seam form a perfect composition with the white stripes on the collars of both of the men’s uniforms.

            Whoever did that was one lucky dude. Who is without a doubt gay.

          • Uh– isn’t this illegal? Are these boys over 21? This is of course unless this photo was taken in the State of Utah where it qualifies as LDS family fun activities.

          • Bad Tom

            The situation as it evolves in our dirty minds from here would likely be illegal if they aren’t over 21 and our fantasies were real.

            This picture probably doesn’t cross the line: no one is naked and there is no sexual activity. Most people would probably think it was just silly. I think it’s silly.

          • Todd20036

            I think as long as their over 18.

            And even if they aren’t, there’s nothing pornographic about the photo

        • Bryan

          Blurgh, I should have scrolled down before replying, you beat me to it. With a better joke.

      • Blake J Butler

        She intentionally tried to spew her lies with the ongoing elections that were happening yesterday. There were people literally being yelled at who were volunteering in Virginia because of the lies of this woman.

        Luckily the bitch failed to have an impact.

        • billbear1961

          She has revealed how truly EVIL she is–selling her book with LIES is more important to her than the health of this democracy, than the survival of the Republic!

          THERE she is posing with an evil, fascist MADMAN, who let a prisoner in his care die of THIRST!

          This is not a question of “political disagreements”–it is a fundamental question of MURDEROUS fascist EVIL out to destroy the RULE OF LAW versus civilized DECENCY!

      • billbear1961

        They’re BOTH liars.

      • Todd20036

        They are both quislings.

        Members of a minority, and willing to sell out their own minority for their own gain

        (in the vein of Pinky and the Brain) But you never said which was the Backstabber and which one the Loon.

            No I know, I’m playing fun. Jonathan Smith got to the joke below before I did.

    • What the hell is wrong with DB? This guy is a major asshole. She should not have agreed to be hugged by him let alone be photographed with him. She is being used. There is no excuse.

    • JCF

      Oh, Donna: known by the company you keep…

  • gaycuckhubby

    The DOJ needs a social media/pr pro.

    They just released this photo of Jeff Sessions welcoming US Attorneys to the Dept. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/861436cb7c60e0a34b2952d3261bf77684aa9efc61a22b07fb3cbb30baefcdc0.jpg

      Aside: Did they comb law schools for people the same height as Sessions or shorter?

      • Bad Tom

        ‘Cept the body guard in the corner. They like them big -n- tall.

      • Jonathan Smith

        well, they tried.
        had to go to a middle school to find the right height.

        why bother?
        we KNOW it.
        they Know it.
        Nobody does anything about it.
        sad, but true.

        • billbear1961

          Make enough noise about it, relentlessly, and they’ll get rid of him.

    • ByronK

      When I see Gorka’s face, the desire to punch him exceeds even the feeling when I see Stephen Miller or the Pharma Douche. I think punching a Nazi is some kind of prime directive in my being. (Of course, I’ve never punched a single living thing in my life, not that I haven’t wanted to…)

      • Jonathan Smith

        if you are missing it, we can invite Gorka over……..

        • ByronK

          I’m sure I could pull off a damn good stinging slap at least. Or something sarcastic that would make him wince.

    • Barry William Teske

      Oh look!

  • I remember a time… 12 months ago, I would have said the Senator was way out of bounds and classless… ughh it’s beer o’clock.

  • Chucktech

    You know, you could just tell him to fuck off and hang up…

    • billbear1961

      Yes, I was going to suggest they just hang up–period.

      • ByronK

        My grandmother used to do that. Not to be rude but she’d just reach the point where she figured she’d talked enough. You’d be halfway through a conversation and then, “Well, it’s so thoughtful of you to call dear….click.”

        • Bad Tom

          (Coldly) “I am terminating this conversation.”

            Say it with no hint of an accent.

        • billbear1961

          Hi, Byron–how are you doing?

          • ByronK

            I’m ok, my dear billbear. Don’t like it getting dark again. Turned another year older and life goes on I suppose. How are you doing?

        • marshlc

          I’ve always liked “Well I won’t keep you, I know you’re busy, so, bye now” to someone who is bloviating on and on on the phone.

        • Cattleya1

          I catch myself doing that to my mother. I know she is just talking to be talking, but I have to do things. I have to do better – I need to start calling her and let her exhaust her need to talk, sometimes. But, is that ever really possible with a Jewish Mother?

          • ByronK

            Have you ever heard Amy’s Answering Machine? Check it out. Very funny messages from a Jewish mother.

    OT: Mae Beavers of rabid anti LGBT bill writing fame in TN has resigned her seat to run for governor. This leaves her seat up for special election in December. I found this link in my email this evening from the TN Dem Party. I don’t really know anything of substance about this candidate, but she is a damn site better then Mark Pody who is Mae’s toady. If anyone has spare cash to sling this lady’s way, I’m sure she needs it.

    • Moebym of the Returners

      Isn’t Phil Bredesen rumored to be running for TN Gov?

      • Gretchen

        Phil has already served two terms as governor, but there is a rumor he may run for Corker’s seat. Right now the only Dem in that race to my knowledge is James Mackler, but I expect more now that there is no incumbent.

        • Moebym of the Returners

          Whoops, confused the Gov race with the Senate race. I should know better given I lived in the state for ten years.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    YES….that is all.

  • boobert

    Fuck the brilliant part, just hang up !

    Just to get this off my chest:

    As pleased as I am with Tuesday’s results it must be stated that we wouldn’t be in this mess if Dems had shown up forcefully in 2016. Lesson? Elections DO matter.

    • LesbianTippingHabits


      And so does voting. Our nation’s most famous football player did not vote.

      Not Voting needs to become politically incorrect. Thank you.

      • Lindoro Almaviva

        Not voting should become illegal and not voting for several cycles should be grounds for your citizenship to be revoked.

        In Australia, if you din’t vote, you get in legal trouble. Same should be here

        • LesbianTippingHabits


          And even if there’s no legal penalty public shaming due to political incorrectness is certainly a powerful motivator, at least for silence.
