I Didn't Say It ...

Trevor NoahThe Daily Show host, on that idiotic photo of Ivanka ____ sitting at the desk in the Oval Office, flanked by Daddy and Justin Trudeau:

“Oh, I’m sorry, that photo shows the importance of women having a seat at the table? Your dad let you sit at his desk! That’s not a woman in power, it’s take your daughter to work day. No I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s a lovely Instagram photo. I think she used the ‘nepotism’ filter, #WokeUpLikeThisWithARichDad. [But] what makes this really annoying is 3 million more Americans wanted a woman sitting behind that desk full-time, not just for the photo op.”

But that’s all that family is, photo ops and self-promotion.
I’d always thought Ivanka was smarter than that ... I was wrong. 
Al Franken, Democratic Senator from Minnesota, on what some in the GOP are saying about _____:

“Well, there’s a range in what they’ll say, and some will say that he’s not right mentally. And some are harsher ... No, no. That’s not fair. That was cheap. There are some who I guess don’t talk to me [but] I haven’t heard a lot of good things, and I’ve heard great concern about the president’s temperament.” 

Um, yeah, he’s a lunatic who hasn’t got the mental stability of a toddler.
Bryan Odell, aka BryanStars a YouTube personality, coming out as gay:

“I’ve been on YouTube for 8 years now, but this is probably the most personal video I’ll ever make. I’ve wanted to make it many times ... So, hello, my name is Bryan and I’m gay…I have not been able to say those words ever in my entire life to anybody. ... I was actually called fag a lot when I was younger, and I went to church a lot as well. And at my church they preached and taught that you go to hell if you’re gay and it was basically worse than any other crime…I grew up thinking that being different was a really really bad thing…certainly that being gay was a terrible thing…I’d say that one of the most amazing things about the past 10 years of my life is watching the world change so much. I’ve seen a president that says it’s a beautiful thing to be gay.”

It’s not a beautiful thing to be gay, it’s a beautiful thing to be your true self, and not get trapped in the hatred of the church and some backwards thinking morons.
Carlos Santana, on Adele’s sweep of the Grammys:

“I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing. She doesn’t bring all the dancers and props, she can just stand there and she just stood there and sang the song and that’s it, and this is why she wins. With all respect to our sister Beyoncé, Beyoncé is very beautiful to look at and it’s more like modeling kind of music — music to model a dress — she’s not a singer, singer, with all respect to her.”

Who knew Santana and I were thinking the exact same thing?
Trevor Noah, again, on those photos of Ivanka ____ staring longingly at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:

“Can you zoom into her eyes? Look at that. You can feel it. Damn. She looks like she’s ready to risk it all. She looks like she’s considering dressing up as a Syrian refugee just so Canada will take her in, like, ‘Let me in, Justin!’ And I get it, because Ivanka is an attractive, vibrant young woman, and ever since her dad became president, have you seen the troll men she has to hang out with? Look at these guys! ... Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying these guys are ugly, but they’re definitely alt-handsome.”

Alt-handsome! Perfection. And, if you’ve seen the pictures you can see that Ivanka is thinking she’s like to be Missus prime Minister of Canada instead of daughter of US President-For-Now.

Not that you asked, but I prefer Trevor Noah's stand up comedy. He has such a genteel, amiable way of saying things that hit the mark every time. Personally, I miss Larry Wilmore and Co. They would've had a field day with this, uh, administration. Sigh.

I'm glad someone finally said that about Beyonce. She's been getting by on her looks for years.
Also, as long as Aretha Franklin lives, there is only one queen!

Mitchell is Moving said...

Wow, Carlos Santana! Although I do think Beyonce can sing, too, it gets overshadowed (and buried) by the "performance." Give me Adele!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Yay to Bryan Odell! And I agree with the dogs' mother -- toaster ovens for EVERYBODY!
