Trump Tweet-Rages At WRONG Theresa May

Trump just tweet-ranted at a random Twitter user in yet another example of his unwillingness to bother checking to see who he is screaming at. Hair Furor is angry at our strongest ally for denouncing his endorsement of a British fascist group whose follower last year assassinated Labour MP Jo Cox, screaming their name as he stabbed her to death. This is all actually happening.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    The wrong Theresa May?? Yikes, how embarrassing.
    The Dotard is deep into his dotage. Sad!

  • John Kusters

    Trump’s response to being told he used the wrong twitter handle: “I meant to do that. I’m unpredictable!”

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Dotard Trump: I can tweet at anyone I want. So there!

      • Frostbite

        I hate to say it. But I’m losing faith in Mueller and anything against the Turnip actually happening. ☹️

        • Tor

          Patience, dear. All good things, and all things legal, take their sweet time.
          Remember it took well over 100 years for the French Revolution to come to a head. To us, that’s a long time. In history, it’s a blip.
          And the first paragraph and the second paragraph are not necessarily connected to each other.

          • Frostbite

            100 years? Trump could push the button in the next 100 days. History won’t mean much to a smoking crater of a planet.

    • Stogiebear

      Will the Huckabees be travelling with him to butcher them?

    • Snarkaholic

      Don’t worry…from what I’ve read about him having American steaks, etc. flown to wherever he’s visiting, he doesn’t eat foreign food.

    • TexasBoy

      Perhaps he will make a racial comment about Prince Harry’s fiance. That should go over well.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      How come nobody stands up to the motherfucker?

    • JackFknTwist

      That visit will not happen.
      Poor Theresa either won’t be in power; or it will be cancelled for ‘security considerations’………ie public opinion will be too dangerous.
      Trump/turd is likely to get scalped.

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        I thought drumpf was backing out of the visit because he’ll be greeted by several million people who hate his guts.
        (Which should happen here, too, every time he shows his face in public.)

        • JackFknTwist

          And tear gas in the streets of london will not look good especially with an unstable govt.

          Bring on Jeremy Corbyn, call another Referendum and end this nightmare of Brexit.
          Then the US can lock up Trump/turd with his fellow felons .

          • Tor

            I think tear gas tarnishes the goldleaf on royal coaches.

      It is still unfolding on Thursday morning in London.

      Brendan Cox, widower of Jo Cox, the MP murdered last year by a man shouting “Britain first” as he shot and stabbed her, posted this sharply critical response to President Trump’s jibe at Theresa May. Neat Slam.

      https://twitter.com/MrBrendanCox/status/936131798987427840

      The House of Commons will urgently debate tRump’s Brush Off tweet to Prime Minister Theresa May, as if it had actually been sent to her.

      Emily Thornberry, the shadow foreign secretary, rudely points out to the Prime Minister that her attempt to be tRump’s first and best buddy has left her humiliated by him.

      Britain also needs to find a way for the Queen to Uninvite tRump and London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan has repeated his call to stop the tRump State Visit.

      The Prime Minister is gadding about in the Middle East (Iraq yesterday, Jordan today) and will face reporters’ questions around midday, in 3 hours or so.

          You can, but if we’re wearing Canadian flag patches in, say, Palermo or Vicenza, not many of the locals will hold it against us. “Oh, si, signore, we’re from Vancooover, and not gli Stati Uniti.”

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            True enough, all I ask is that those of you who do pretend to be Canadian…do us proud…but not loud.

            Not all of them. Most Americans who travel are, by that very act, showing they’re unafraid of different experiences…to be honest, it’s the volume more than anything else. 🙂

    BWAH-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA

    While the rest of the UK went into melt-down over Trump’s comments, May’s office merely said – mildly – that Trump was “wrong”.

    And this is how he treats her.

    She put out her vaginal pubes as the landing strip for US-51 (to quote George Orwell) and he rejects her.

    I want to go to sleep now just so I can read the cocaine-fuelled responses to Trump tomorrow morning.

    It’s going to be classic.

    Fuck! He must really hate her.

        • Ninja0980

          The list of judges Trump has been nominating has been Pence/Republicans all along.

          • Bob Conti

            Indeed. Trump isn’t sitting there weighing potential appointees. He’s given a list. He just signs off on it. Kinda like Mel Brook’s Governor from Blazing Saddles.

    But when Sanders is asked about it, far from admitting the mistake she will double down and insist it is part of Trump’s 11-dimensional chess game to purposely tweet to the wrong Theresa May, thereby drawing more media attention and magnifying his message.

    You hide and watch, and see if she doesn’t.

    This guy has been doing a full scale war on the Moore accusers.
    And yet the Bill Clinton accusers whom we’re supposed to believe and side with now are more then happy to side with him.
    For the folks that say we need to redo the 90’s, how about we leave these folks out of it.

    The Brits may not be flying V-bombers any more, but they do have Polaris and Poseidon subs.

    • Dazzer

      The Brits never had V-bombers. And the Brits don’t have an independent nuclear deterrent. Everything the Brits have is determined by the US.

      • coram nobis

        No? Not the Avro Vulcan or the Vickers Valiant or the Handley-Page Victor? They certainly weren’t made in Japan.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V_bomber

        • Treant

          And they did have the Windscale Pile disaster as they were enriching uranium and whatnot.

          According to what I can find quickly, the UK has about 215 nukes, but does rely on the US to maintain most of them. They do, however, own those nukes.

          • Tor

            Outsourced nukes. Never saw that one coming.

          • Dazzer

            All of the UK’s nuclear missiles are bought from the US and can only be launched with US systems. Effectively, the UK can only launch a nuclear strike if the US gives it permission.

        • Dazzer

          It’s probably just a cultural thing, but when I think of V bombers, I think of the V2 missiles that the Germans used in WWII.

          • coram nobis

            Well, yes, although I think the German term was vergeltungswaffen, V-weapons, since the V1 and V2 were cruise and short-range ballistic missiles. The RAF did use “V-bombers” as its term for its three longer-range nuclear bombers, which all had names beginning with V.

      Can the Palace just announce Prince Phillip is under the weather and she could stay home?

      • Dazzer

        Prince Philip would take the opportunity to die to annoy Trump.

        The only member who is prepared to talk to Trump is Prince Charles – and that’s mostly because Trump said he could have had sex with Diana during the Royal divorce and Trump said he could sleep with her.

        Charles understands his dullness in a way that most people don’t understand/

        He would relish the opportunity to spend three hours uninterrupted with Trump.

        • coram nobis

          He could talk to Donald about plants. And gardening. And architecture. He could sing at him.

          It would drive Donald into deep Dementiashire.

          • Dazzer

            You don’t understand Charles’s essential wickedness. He knows full well what Trump has said about him and Diana.

            William and Harry hate Trump with a passion that existed well before Trump became President.

            Charles is more than prepared to use protocol to make Trump suffer. He’s been actively lobbying to be the person who shares a coach with Trump up the Mall. Everyone else in the Royal Family has refused point blank.

            Prince Charles understands his power as a Royal in a way most people don’t.

            I met Princess Di several times when she was alive, but I never became a member of Charles’ or Di’s “camps”. (Not that either of them would have wanted me to – I was a nothing, albeit a nothing on the extreme boundaries.)

            All of that said, I’d trust Charles to kick the living shit out of Trump.

            Yes, I think Charles would wickedly exploit Trump/turd’s obvious inferiority complex.

  • Using the name ‘Pocahontas’ as an insult and retweeting anti-Islamic (phony) videos weren’t the only racist things he did this week.

    He also mocked Asians, including Asian leaders (most likely meaning Chinese Premier Xi).

    http://verifiedpolitics.com/trump-just-sparked-furor-imitating-asian-leaders-todays-rally-watch/

    In the middle of a story about how trade and defense go hand-in-hand, Trump described a nameless “ally” that was once an enemy that we now defend, a nation who he said needs to pay us more for that defense (he practically coughed and said “Japan”). He then recounted how he brought this topic up to Asian leaders on his recent trip there, and then unleashed racially tinged body language to portray their reaction. It was disturbingly similar to his infamous, cringe-worthy impersonation of a disabled reporter during the campaign.

    This will not go over well in China.

    • If you click thru, you can see a gif and video. Basically, he’s doing the Fu Manchu hands-in-sleeves, narrow-eyed nodding thing.

      Actually, he could’ve meant Japan, as the story says. But he generalized it to ‘Asian leaders’.

      • He doesn’t consciously do distractions, IMHO. I believe he is so purely Id, he just reacts and acts out when he feels he’s under pressure.

    You can tell he wants to get impeached. He will continue this act by becoming more and more unstable. If he succeeds in getting removed, he will continue his rants claiming he was cheated out of being president. That was pretty much his original intention, as he never dreamed he would win.

    • Treant

      At this point, I think the last hope of saving his business or the kids’ is to either get sacked (to create an enormous amount of goodwill with the Deplorables) or quit after a huge win (which now seems very unlikely; the tax thing isn’t big enough and a win is far from certain).

      • boobert

        He won’t quit. His base will turn on him. Being forced out is a win for him as he’ll still have them cheering .

        • bkmn

          I think the mega-donors will turn on him, especially if the GOP can’t get their tax bill passed. He has failed on every major project he has tried and the mega-donor class is not used to this much failure. I would not be surprised if Paul Ryan moves forward articles of impeachment shortly after the tax bill fails. Pence at least has some idea of how to rally the GOP, unlike Trump who never wants to do any real work.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            “I would not be surprised if Paul Ryan moves forward articles of impeachment shortly after the tax bill fails”

      • Natty Enquirer

        It’s Charles Demuth, The Figure Five in Gold (1928).

      • band

        Phillip, thanks so much for the warm hello.

        The painting my avatar is glommed from predates “Take 5” (and, almost, Brubeck). It’s Charles Demuth’s “I Saw the Figure 5 in Gold” (1928), an abstract portrait of his friend, the poet William Carlos Williams. Demuth’s title comes from a WCW poem:

        The Great Figure

        Among the rain
        and lights
        I saw the figure 5
        in gold
        on a red
        firetruck
        moving
        tense
        unheeded
        to gong clangs
        siren howls

          Beautiful! Thank you for posting that, band! It reminds me so much of one of his other poems, “The Red Wheel-Barrow,” which I adore! It goes like this:

          “so much depends/
          upon/
          [¶]
          a red wheel/
          barrow/
          [¶]
          glazed with rain/
          water/
          [¶]
          beside the white/
          chickens.”

          People have been in streets. There are people that protest outside of Senators and Reprentatives offices everyday. They’ve staged sit-ins. They have marches in cities around the country. Did you see the segment Rachel showed in its entirety last night of the activists who got inside the finance committee hearing and disrupted the vote to move the tax bill out of committee (shout out to ADAPT yet again, btw)?

          In my district the Indivisible group has raised enough money to put up three billboards criticizing Duncan Hunter.

    K, so I watched the Streisand concert Netflix spesh. And I loved pretty much every goddamn minute.

    Never been a superfan, more a distant admirer of her musicality, career, certain movies, guts, longevity. But I was pretty much on my feet along with that audience.

    (Supposedly when Babs was first hitting big in the early 60s, Judy Garland told her, “don’t let them do to you what they did to me.” Oddly I kept thinking of that as I watched, and it filled me with verklemptitude. Oh Judy – she didn’t! She didn’t, and with a big fat exclamation point!)

    Love the somewhat busted voice – she’s seventy-freakin-five! – yet still absolute unerring pitch, phrasing so awesome it can still make you smack your mama, etc – just superb everything orchestra/stagewise/backup singers etc

    Oh, and the thing ends with an extended, lovely song & pix montage to her late dog Sammie

    All that and a DOG PERSON! Five giant-ass stars.

    But in a way that he can still blame the “Deep State” or whoever, and still come off as a martyr.

    • Treant

      Honestly? I work under the assumption that he has absolutely no coherent plan. Somewhere in his pointy head he probably does want to lose this job, but I doubt very well that his day-to-day activities are focused on that.

      What you see is what you get. He’s mean, petty, not very intelligent, and completely incompetent. The Tweet du jour simply reflects all that.

      Honestly, some of our trolls are better than that around here, and they’re barely coherent most of the time.

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        Everything he does can be understood once you realize he really is a dumb-as-Fk racist imbecile.

        • Treant

          That’s much more succinct than the way I said it, so I’m going to plagiarize that.

          There’s no there there.

      • what really makes it hard is trying to understand how many trolls, i mean our fellow citizens, actually like the guy. do i believe the russians stole the election? yes. but i also believe that enough people in this country thought that the traitor was a fun, cool, “interesting” celebrity and that the office of president needed one of those. even if in truth his was/is a horrible person on about 8 levels.

        traitor isn’t the problem, he’s a symptom. 40 years of republican control have destroyed, um, our republic. it sucks. it’s one thing to be a perv or a greed head. it’s another thing to have no concern for your nation. that’s who is ruling this land right now. my head still occasionally explodes when i recall that a wannabe nudist neo-fascist doofus in moscow is ruling the world. /shudders

        • Phillip in L.A.

          Good evening, chicago dyke. I am very pleased to see you here again; I was asking after you just the other week!

          I concur whole-heartedly with your analysis! 💯

      • Like I keep saying: He’s pure Id. And he’s a lazy and deeply ignorant man whose psychosis-level narcissism keeps him from rectifying that lack.

        Everything he does is reactive and impulsive. He gets a feeling and he acts on it, without considering the consequences. Back last spring during that Lester Holt interview, he initially stuck with the Comey firing story, then something inside him said, ‘No, being blamed about Russia bothers me, so I’m gonna say it was about that. They’ll think I’m being strong and decisive. *I* decided, not that Jew in DoJ…’ And so he casually confessed to deliberate obstruction of an investigation. On live TV.

        An attorney would shit him/herself, witnessing their client doing that.

        There is one thing Donald’s mental illness gives him: An overwhelming urge to seek approval and he has clearly mastered the skill of reading a crowd, to say what he thinks they want to hear.

        But anyway, I tend to agree with you Treant. I think there are deliberately self-destructive impulses in him and somewhere he hopes to be removed or forced out so that he can quit this job he obviously hates—and then spend the rest of his life bitching about how the Presidency was stolen from him.

        That said, he doesn’t think he’ll ever be behind bars. On that, he could very well be mistaken.

      God KNOWS what the true explanation is for his behaviour, other than that he’s an evil, twisted BASTARD.

    • johncAtl

      I don’t think he ever expected, or wanted, to be President. And now he doesn’t know what to do. He is in deeply over his head. So all he knows to do is lash out and insult and hope it gets good ratings. He can keep doing that, and it distracts his base from what is going on. But it’s not distracting Robert Mueller. The bad news for the rest of us is that he’s providing cover for Congress while they fuck over 99% of Americans – including 99% of Trump’s base.

  • billbear1961

    THIS upset me today (not the analysis but the passive ACCEPTANCE of what is NOT acceptable):

    Rendering Reality Irrelevant

    Greg Sargent: “But such incredulity misses the deeper significance of this stuff. The brazenness of it is the whole point — his utter shamelessness itself is meant to achieve his goal. In any given case, Trump is not trying to persuade anyone of anything as much as he is trying to render reality irrelevant, and reduce the pursuit of agreement on it to just another part of the circus. He’s asserting a species of power — the power to evade constraints normally imposed by empirically verifiable facts, by expectations of consistency, and even by what reasoned inquiry deems merely credible. The more brazen or shameless, the more potent is the assertion of power.”

    https://politicalwire.com/2017/11/29/rendering-reality-irrelevant/

    To which I responded:

    Oh, I’m so sick of this! It makes me so angry and is driving me to despair! It’s only “potent” because you TOLERATE it!

    What is wrong with this society–what is WRONG with it?! Reality is NOT irrelevant!! Without facts and the truth, and a regard for them, there is only chaos and insanity! Nothing good can come of this! There is only ever-growing HARM, and it has got to STOP! Stop tolerating what is clearly and absolutely intolerable! This is EVIL–Jesus Christ, can’t you understand that? Is it THAT difficult to understand??

    I’m so angry at the way so MANY in this country are letting this evil, inhuman, unfit PIG drag us through the gutter!! The man is a PROVEN and relentless pathological LIAR! How can this not matter?? How can civilized people recognize the authority over them–over their society–of a gang of relentless liars, thieves, predators, bigots, and fanatics?! How CAN you consent to the authority of this BARBARIAN over you?? No election can excuse it! A liar and a crook is still a liar and a crook even if he’s elected! We KNOW what he is–he’s made it clear again and again and again since entering the Oval Office, and he’s got to GO!!

    Have you NO self-respect–none at all–left?! Call him out, in public, journalists and politicians, every time he indulges in his fictions and slanders! Enough is enough! The problem is clear, and your refusal to deal with it can only excite a decent human being’s CONTEMPT!! Stop accepting–and making lame excuses for–the unacceptable!

    By accepting the authority of this evil LIAR, you DEGRADE yourselves and your country!!

            Has it been shocking to find out that Michigan is part of the South?

          • safari

            Not particularly. My home region is horribly racially segregated, I grew up being told to “not go to that part of town”, my father uses every racial slur in the book, his dad got kicked out of city hall for yelling the n-word at the employees, and everyone outside of the cities votes for the crazy-right. Plus the entire west side of the state managed to produce Betsy DeVos and Eric Prince.

            We’ve also had a strong Michigan to Texas pipeline.

          • William

            Way back in the 80s, a whole bunch of people from Michigan moved to Texas. They made the local rednecks look like rocket scientists. I think Michigan sent them away on purpose.

  • Treant

    OT: An idle question. I make my own hair washing bars (confession, half the time I just wash my hair with the bar I’m using to soap myself, not the coconut-argan-and-angel-urine bar I whipped up).

    I was in the store today and happened down the personal care aisle, where I haven’t been in ages. Only to note the number of shampoos out there in a not-very-big grocery store.

    Do people actually care about split ends, honey-infused, oily, dry, colored, heat damaged, matching conditioners and all that crap? Because there was an enormous amount of it.

    • safari

      I just like the shampoo that makes my scalp tingle. Because.

      • Treant

        I do, too. That’s why I tend to put peppermint in soap; it works everywhere. 🙂

      Turn 180 degrees and you’ll see 52 brands of toothpaste. Look at all of them and the only active ingredient is fluoride. Go to the next aisle and look at any cold medication, pain killer, etc. Then compare it to the adjacent products. Americans are gullible. Marketing wins.

      • Treant

        OK, even I am very particular about my toothpaste. It must be a gentle peppermint flavor, not too sweet, with decent cleaning power. I’m currently using Colgate, but honestly? There are probably 150 types that would do. 🙂

        Mind you, pain killers I’m also particular about, but we keep one generic of each type in the house, plus one name brand that works on my migraines…

      • Phillip in L.A.

    • SoCalGal20

      Well I guess they’re successful enough in convincing people they need this and that. And some of them do make a difference if you have curly hair or dry vs oily hair, etc.

      Personally, I use the Godiva shampoo bar from Lush. Love, love, love! And, yes, it’s expensive but it lasts a long time and it works really well for my hair.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shampoo

      “No poo” (or no shampoo) is a collective term for methods of washing hair without commercial shampoo.

      I found this method doesn’t work well with hard water.

      • Treant

        It wouldn’t. In hardest water, even soaps need sodium citrate to work–or sodium carbonate or borax for laundry soap.

        I’ve heard of no-poo, but I’ve never had any inclination to try. Even as a kid, my hair was greasy.

      Obama was one of the best. Fortunately we had him at the helm for eight years. Now we have Trump and he is one sick fuck and we seem to be stuck with him. Even if he is impeached and convicted, we will be stuck with the extreme fundamentalist Christian Pence. Unless the American voters oust many of the Congressional Republicans in 2018, we’re totally screwed for the foreseeable future.

  • Lawrence O’Donnell tonight has an actual pro, Dr. Dodes, basically diagnosing Trump as clinically insane.

    “Psychosis.” “Keeps bringing up things that are not in his own best interest to mention.” “No self-control.” “Delusional thinking when stressed.” “Enormous danger to all of us.”

      • SoCalGal20

        And do not forget, the GOP is happily aiding and abetting. Trump is only a symptom of a much bigger problem. The GOP has been methodically laying the groundwork for dismantling our government as we know it for years.

        I think we do have a real chance to take the House next year but it is going to take a LOT of work to overcome the voter suppression and gerrymandering that the GOP has been carefully and dutifully putting in place for years. And with Trump and the GOP stacking the courts (speaking of, the 36 year old guy with no experience but whose wife works in the WH just got through the Senate Judiciary committee today on a party line vote) we can’t rely on them for help contesting voter suppression efforts or gerrymandering. Hopefully Trump will be gone by then, at least.

There are many “insane” people living in the community safely (thank you medications). You can hospitalize someone against her or his will only if that perso’s a threat to himself or to others. The helping professionals are wrestling with a new ethical dilemma;”OK, we aten’t supposed to diagnose someone from afar (without a proper in-person evaluation), and he’s clearly not about to attack and harm an individual. However, what if he’s somehow been given the power that makes him an imminent threat to significantly harming an organization, a town, a state, or one or more countries?!! Can we break confidentiality and/or diagnose form afar in THOSE situation?”

        We think alike. I think about not being buried in your garden, and you think I would be good fertilizer for the sunflowers.

          That’s relatively accurate, but without some on-site testing, I wouldn’t be sure that you’d be a biochemical and elemental match for the garden.

          Also, I never bury; anaerobic decomp really isn’t great for the soil. It ties up nitrogen and produces plant-damaging (or killing) organic chemicals. Things short-stop in the compost for months before being put on the garden.

        It’s not just you. He’s been slowly destabilizing as the stress (of doing practically nothing, actually) gets to him.

        • Dreaming Vertebrate

          Golfing every moment he is not tweeting about what he sees on Fox and Friends, is very stressful.
          He is tweeting his tiny fingers down to the bone all because he loves White America!

            This should tell you that he’s spent his entire life not actually getting anything done. I’d be willing to bet any gains have actually come from underlings.

      He was wasting his breath. Lesbians, bisexuals and socialists are all three syllables. Way too much for audience. But when he said the five syllable “pedophila” they thought he was speaking in tongues and doubled down on their support.

    So theres this private christian academy in the suburb in my town and is like two minutes away from my house, it is an academy and a church, its basically a mega church monstrosity. Anyhow last saturday, their music teacher was arrested at the mall after taking pictures of an 11 year old boy in the bathroom stall putting his phone underneath the stall and taking his picture.

    He deleted the picture, but when the police apprehended him they found shots of other boys, boys that were identified as students from his school. He is basically looking out to be gay, his likes are through the roof gay gay gay with julia sugarbaker and other likeminded likes, but he had to have been following the doctrine of the church which is very conservative and was very supportive in the efforts to getting our non-discrimination ordinance voted away by the voters, with signs posted all over the town in yards saying “keep men out of our daughters bathrooms”. But he wasn’t the first, the youth pastor also this year was arrested, tried and found guilty of having sex with underage girls that were students at the school.

    I’m seeing a pattern here because this is the second time in a year that this has happened, although it happened to a deserving crowd given their hateful role in taking down our ordinance by portraying transpeople as sexual predators. Cause now the school and the church is getting a rap for being full of pedophiles.

    http://txktoday.com/crime/teacher-arrested-taking-pictures-boy-restroom/

    • Bambino

      Urmmm what? Taking pics of underage kids regardless of their gender is label as pedophile. Not gay or straight.

      • Blake J Butler

        The church had to have done research on people in order to hire them on, for them to be inline with the doctrine, christian right likeminded.

        I only bring it up because he was inline with their ideology but most likely was keeping his private life in the closet to keep his job. I’m not saying that he is not a pedophile, because he is on those merits.

    • Sam_Handwich

          • Phillip in L.A.

            I have found snuggling with His Majesty to be tricky. You have to approach, but not get too close. Then, you can maybe ‘accidentally’ brush up against him, but you need to move right away; although, no farther away than you originally were. (I.e., no retreat.)

            Then, he will come to me–or more accurately, roll against me–ultimately.

          • AJ Drew

            you’re referring to a cat, yes?

          • Phillip in L.A.

            My ex’s cat would also “hold” my hand by putting his paw on it. And then digging in just enough to let me know he could draw blood if he wanted, but he likes me.

            Ambien just makes everything seem like a good idea at the time. There is no body high.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            There used to be these combinations of pills called “loads.” You would take Six (6) Tylenol-3 with Codeine + Six (6) Doriden (Glutethemide) sleeping pills.

            The result was very similar to Quaaludes, if you didn’t pass out.

          • Gretchen

            I don’t see how we get those kinds of concessions. Truthfully the Democrats are the only ones with any real problem with him anyway. I know the establishment doesn’t like him, and he will be a pain in the ass, but really there isn’t much for them to gain by expelling him, and he mostly supports their brand of crazy evil anyway. It may happen, but I don’t see them handing over the golden goose just to get the Dem vote. I also don’t see how Dems sell it to voters that they aren’t first in line to eject the child molester. Short of Doug Jones winning outright, I don’t expect us to get anything out of it.

      • billbear1961

      Ah, but Holmes has the last laugh, as he does not ever lose his respectful tone, continues correctly addressing his interlocutor as “Your Grace,” and finally ends up winning the Duke’s respect and convincing him to act in accordance with his (Holmes’) wishes.

      • billbear1961

        He has His Grace dead to rights–James IS the Duke’s illegitimate son, and if he wants his legitimate son back, whom James has kidnapped, he WILL cooperate with Holmes (and he does).

            It’s a great favourite with us, too.

            There are four films, Phillip; most episodes are around 50 minutes–the “films” are given two 50-minute timeslots, back to back, to make films around an hour and 40 minutes long.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Was one film the pilot? Perhaps I’m misremembering; but I seem to remember a definite Episode One.

          • billbear1961

            The first episode was A Scandal in Bohemia, Phillip, but I don’t know if it was a “pilot” or “test” episode.

            The Sign of Four was the first film, I think (without checking). We bought all the episodes in a collection a few months ago and have been rewatching them (but not in any particular order). We’ve watched the 5 films again. (I also don’t know if the Sign of Four may have been a pilot.)

          • billbear1961

            There was something weird about The Sign of Four. For one thing, much of the music was different, not like it is in all the other stories.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Yeah, I think they didn’t have that iconic theme music yet for that first episode

          • billbear1961

            The films are The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Master Blackmailer, The Sign of Four, and The Last Vampire.

            Actually, The Eligible Bachelor is also around 100 minutes, I think.

            So, I guess there are FIVE!

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Baskervilles is amazing!

          • billbear1961

            Very stylish!

            They’ll never do the stories the same way again, with the same flair.

            This series is one for the ages!

      • billbear1961

        Still, I relish the scenario where someone, with the same style, denounces the Defiler as the loathsome BARBARIAN he is!

            I think that’s the lowest register I’ve ever heard Sioux sing in; she sounds even huskier than usual!(*)

            (*) P.S. Poor Ms Sioux! She got her “boots to walk all over” Mr Budgie, and look how that turned out! (One should always be careful what one wishes for….) 😎

          • Lumpy Gaga

            She’s got a delicate instrument, and is taxed vocally on roadtrips. As the years and tours dragged on, it got harder and harder to find a boot of a good night.

            Even as short as the “Seven Year Itch” Banshees reunion tour was, she’s flat out croaking on the official release. I couldn’t listen to it.

            (And her separation from Budgie was (IIRC) even before this clip, which was from the tour for “Mantaray”. Was there something spectacularly nasty from Budgie after the fact? I’ve never heard any gossip about the breakup at all.)

          • Phillip in L.A.

            No, I haven’t heard anything about the break-up either. I was just referring generally to the lengthy process of their personal relationship: the courtship, seduction, marriage, and then break-up. It’s hard to imagine there’s no hard feelings, but maybe not….

          • For the “random metal crap” suit, you can tell the thrower was right-handed.

        Those are totally different; or, at least, they don’t hurt my eyes. 😎

        Quite the contrary, I find my eyes going back to them again and again. They have an interesting design, and the color palette is not offensive (if not absolutely brilliant). Probably mid-level upscale and extremely overpriced for the quality of the merchandise, although it’s difficult to tell without handling it personally! 😉

        • AJ Drew

          Will he feign surprise?

          • Treant

            Yes, we both do that. I have a seven pound bottle of castor oil picked out for my birthday.

          • AJ Drew

            Isn’t castor oil poisonous? Hmm. Oh… soap, right, got it.

          • Treant

            Actually, no, it’s fine. Castor beans are poisonous due to the ricin. Castor oil doesn’t contain ricin as it’s denatured by the extraction process (heat is always used). Castor oil is, however, the only source of ricinoleic acid, which helps sustain lather (but is a weak lather producer in and of itself).

            You’ll find castor oil in the laxatives and baby aisle; it’s a good way to speed up a…slow digestion…gently, and it’s gentle enough that it’s the only laxative recommended for babies.

            Regular consumption is not recommended due to the laxative effect, and it doesn’t taste that great, either…

          Yep. I’m petty as fuck.

          • Treant

            How are those briefs, anyway? I keep seeing the ads…

            Honestly? This year, I want socks and 7 pounds of castor oil. If a small sample bottle of avocado oil materialized, I wouldn’t be adverse, but it’s not necessary.

          • Gretchen

            He bought one pair about a week ago and raved so much about how special they are that I was legitimately concerned he was just going to wear them every day whether they were clean or not.

            At this point, just Effexor. It was the only one that took clinical depression from an average day being 1-3 up to 4-6. With the side effect that I’m eternally a little testy, but they tell me that’s probably my natural personality and if I were “normal,” that would be true anyway.

          • AJ Drew

            Between this and the garden…and those are just my hobbies…I’m pretty busy. And I don’t tend to release photos of the little electronics toys I design and build for fun, or books I’m reading, and so on…

            Really, I come from a line of depressed but very high energy people. We don’t do bored well. 🙂

          • Phillip in L.A.

            I’m sorry you have to suffer with that illness, Treant, but also glad you have found something that helps

          • zhera

            Question from a hyper-sensitive person:

            Does the soap making trigger your migraines? I find that all stimuli can give me headaches, from light, to sound, to smell.

          • Treant

            Upon very rare occasion, yes! I can’t work with lavender oils for very long without setting off a migraine. Some other flower oils also cause problems, but nothing like lavender.

            For the most part, I’m not set off that badly by scent, so it’s not extreme and I tend to limit my exposure to the ones that bother me.

            It also helps that the scent is added when the soap is already the consistency of a thin pudding, so it’s not like a gas cloud, and it only gets thicker and more bar-like from there.

          • zhera

            Well that’s good! Migraines suck hard and have forced me to stop various hobby activities, such as painting. I can’t even walk past a perfume shop without getting sick.

          • Treant

            You can (and some do) wear a gas-mask-like filter. They’re not even terribly expensive, and they do work to remove scents from the air that bother you.

            A couple people with major issues on the soap boards get around it that way.

    So a lady that is harassing a couple for kissing in a restaurant, saying they were having sex in front of people, repeatedly calling the woman a slut and a prostitute, acting crazy in the store, and throws a racial slur to one of the customers on the way out. Calls the cops and says she’s going to report the couple for “having sex in public” before she gets tossed out by an employee who witnesses everything along with several customers, especially after she threw the racial slur.

    And the irony of all of this, this girl that is screaming is a camgirl. And she’s upset over a kiss in public.

      My quibble about the first part (1&2)—that they didn’t explain (esp for their young audience) WHY Nazis are bad (yes, that is where we are in 2017)—they made up for in parts 3&4 (especially Nazi desire to exterminate LGBTs. But anti-Semitism was mentioned also—not watching “Arrow” regularly, I had no idea Felicity Snoke was Jewish!)

    • AlternativeQuacks

      I watched those shows fairly regular for a while, because I grew up reading DC comics. But I lost interest in Arrow quite a while ago, then the Flash turned into 90% soap opera and I lost interest in that. Lastly, I even lost interest in Legends too which just got goofy. I haven’t seen any of them this season, and I can’t even work up the whim to watch.

      The Wonder Woman movie was very good, though. I will admit that.

      • JCF

        Well I’m a Supergirl fan, through and through. I only catch the other 3 on crossovers. Barry&Iris are very cute together, but I haven’t seen anything *compelling* about watching the other 3.

      • Ben in Oakland

        I gave up on arrow as well. The lack of suspense and the predictability of the characters killed it for me. I still like the flash, nut no one ever thinks through the implications of time travel, parallel universes, etc. but Barry is just too cute, as is Wally. That sort of outweighs the silliness.

    • Mikey

      I can’t get Legends of Tomorrow, it’s on some stupid premium channel here.
      I got to see the first three episodes of the crossover, which ended up playing on two different networks, but then couldn’t see the last part as that was on yet another network.

      That said, what I saw was very “power rangers” quality in story-telling, with characters doing stupid things like having a gun and not using it, or running (for no real reason) right into open cross-fire. I really find it difficult to get into stupid people that I keep hoping WILL get killed each episode.

      A gem from the recap over on AutoStraddle:

      [Before the final battle]

      They are a group that consists of a bisexual woman, a lesbian woman, a
      Kryptonian immigrant, four women of color, three men of color, one of
      whom is also gay, two queer men, a woman who arguably has multiple
      personality disorder but is handling it like a boss, and a Jewish woman
      who are not backing down. They will fight as long and as hard as it
      takes. They have been through enough, they’re not going to roll over and
      let some Nazi scum take over their world. They just wont.

      And the white dudes among them stand with them.

        That was Nero, but agreed that the WH kitchen staff should keep the cabinet containing the Crisco securely locked.

          This is why I often put “* I know” on my posts; I tend to twist things two steps to the left, flip it upside down, and see what rattles out.

      There was something Caligula said once about the people of Rome that I’d like now to direct at Dump and the GOP, namely: “If you had one neck, I’d HACK it through.”

    Wellll… I need a cuteness break. He’s a guy displaying sleeping with cat vs sleeping with dog. (I’d adopt all 3.)

    By the by, Mueller’s team is to interview (if they have not already,) Hope Hicks. THAT should be interesting; she’s so ice cold that even the eagle that attacked DT just shrugged away from her for her photo op with said eagle.

    • Eagle is like, “Hope Hicks huh? You smell like Donald’s pants. Put me down so I can do my thing and maul him.”

    • JCF

      If, as said, HH lives under Drumpf’s desk (I know, brain bleach time), she’s Seen Some Things. Hard to scare (but hopefully, easy to sell out!)

    You left out “to”, “to death”.

      Yup. That’s about it.

    Cancel the visit.

    • Reality.Bites

      I think the Great British public will demand it, but diplomacy will not allow the formal cancellation, despite the fact that everyone knows this visit will never happen and that was the case two days ago too.

  • campbell

    And not only that but as a result we have had to endure Anne Effing Coulter for 5 minutes this morning on the Today programme.

  • jpeeps

    Ugh. The shit-stain’s tweet has actually given Treeza May an uplift in popularity. Perhaps part of the plan? (Actually surely not.)

    • ChrisMorley

      But in the House of Commons the plain-talking veteran left Labour MP Dennis Skinner got straight to the point.
      tRump is “a fascist” president. He only responds to action. The government should cancel the state visit, he says.

      Conservative Home Secretary (=Sec for Interior) Amber Rudd repeated the formula that ‘no date has been set’ for tRump’s State Visit.

      All the indications are that no date will be set in the foreseeable future.

      • Reality.Bites

        Everyone in UK politics knows this visit was never going to happen.

        Everyone also knows that the UK government’s aim is to cause no damage to the relationship with the USA (not Trump).

        So they’ll muddle along. Any Labour government of the past would reluctantly have done the same.

        • ChrisMorley

          Everybody except the Prime Minister. The No10 spokesman again just insisted Trump’s state visit would go ahead, saying: “The offer of a state visit has been extended and accepted and we will set out more details in due course.”

          Teresa May has quite a big delusion thing going, including about Brexit negotiations.

          • Edmund Allin

            But the “arrangements” will take a long time. Several years, I imagine. 🙂

          • Reality.Bites

            Yes – February 2021 I’d guess.

    Well, yesterday was a nice slow news day with not much going on. I wonder what today will manage to conjure up

    In case you missed it WaPo put out another story on Project Veritas yesterday.

      A yep. Even if project veritas doesn’t get another ‘sting’, it’ll still chill anti-trump or anti-right wing reporting.

      Looks rather like Mr M Englund (Chloris Leachman’s son, who attended secondary school with us); although he would have been almost too young to play this rôle in 1977 (and Morgan had better hair and better cheek-bones).

      Yes, I had a crush on him, and he either knew it and/or reciprocated. During one of the first screenings of the original Alien (May, 1979)(*)–when the reproductive cycle of silicon-based life-forms was not yet ‘common knowledge’–he and Mom sat in the row behind us, directly behind our seats.

      Right when Chestburster popped out of John Hurt, Mr Englund reached forward, and placed his hands gently over my eyes! Str8 teenage boys generally did not–and still do not–touch other teenage boys in public, much less surreptitiously and without notice, so it was a welcome and interesting surprise.

      (*) I am amazed to read the budget of this film was $9-11M!

    this is what happens when you put the head of company in charge of the country. They think they can do whatever to whoever they want with no consequences and no questions asked because they’re the head of the company. You notice that no Fortune 500 companies are firing men over sexual harassment because they tolerate it and the women who accuse get fired or paid off or both.

  • The_Wretched

    I commented earlier that this retweet in particular needs an investigation. PUTIN’s goal of shattering the West took a huge step forward with this wedge between the US – UK.
