Random Musings

Dear Media ...

Please refrain from saying that President _____ was “not correct” when he Tweeted that Obama had wiretapped _____ Tower; please stop saying his accusations are “demonstrably false.”

They are lies. The president lied. Donald _____ is a liar.

Thanks. Carry on.
Carlos and I really enjoy FX's American Crime, another one of those anthology shows that features a different story each season but uses many of the same actors in different roles.

The first season was about a murder and anti-Muslim sentiment; the second was about the rape of a teenaged boy. This season is about human trafficking, either for sex trade or for migrant farm workers; it’s slavery for the modern times y’all.

Brilliant acting, especially by Regina King, who has appeared in all three seasons, and Felicity Huffman, who’s also been there from the start.

That said. There was a Hot Guy in the last episode—and the hope that he may again appear-and so, for about a half second, though I think it was longer, I was all about the guy ... Sean Blakemore.

Just sayin’. Come for the Hot Guy stay for the brilliance of the show.
So FBI Director James Comey told us this week that _____ is a liar about the wiretaps and he told us that _____ and his team are currently being investigated for their ties with Russia. I felt good until ...

Comey admitted to having _____ under investigation back in October and November and yet he never said a word about that but did flap his yap about Hillary and those emails—you know, the email case that never went anywhere but may have cost her the election.

So, while I am glad Comey said what he said, I am furious he didn’t also tell us he was looking into _____ way back when. Asshat.
Think it’s not about Muslims?

Now, passengers on foreign airlines headed to the United States from 10 airports in eight majority-Muslim countries can no longer carry on any electronic devices larger than a cellphone.

This new rules, aimed at people coming here from majority Muslim nations because, yes, Muslims are terrorists, we all know that, was enacted Tuesday by the _____ based on no credible, specific threat.

Just Muslims.
The Wall Street Journal printed an editorial this week that really went after _____ but my favorite line of all is when they called _____’s credibility into question by saying,  “the President clings to his assertion like a drunk to an empty gin bottle” and, because of his lack of respect for the truth, “most Americans may conclude he’s a fake president”

Yes, they did.
Shortly after my mother passed away in 2007, my parent’s German Shepherd also died. Mt dad rescued another shepherd from a local rescue group and had her about a month or so before finding out she was also terminally ill.

Then he rescued Foxy, another shepherd and has had her about nine years. Last week, after a vet visit, he found out she has an inoperable tumor on her liver that has metastasized to her spleen and she has very little time left.

So, you know, those of you with pets, those of you who love animals, give yours a hug today for Foxy. And my Dad.
In Hell Has Frozen Over News: Woody Harrelson gives up pot after 25 years:
“The effect of it is euphoria. But when you’re doing it all the time, it just becomes … Well, you know. I feel like it was keeping me from being emotionally available.”
What the what?
Now, a lot of people got all up in arms because the _____ kids went skiing and the Secret Service went with them and we The People foot that bill but I am not one of them.

That’s what the job entails, even to the family of a president we despise.

Melania, on the other hand, squatting on her golden toilet in Manhattan and giving us the bill is another story ...
After saying he would never give his kids jobs in the White House, this week it was revealed that Ivanka “Complicit” _____ will be getting her own office in the West Wing.

I’m guessing she’s there to coddle Daddy when people are mean to Daddy, but, as Angela Merkel may have said last week, “What’s a handbag designer doing here?”
Lindsay’s back y’all!

Yup, Lindsay Lohan, America’s favorite child actress turned drug addict, turned menace to society turned jail bird turn rehab addict turned unemployed has-been may star in a new “reality show.” The Anti-Social Network. It’s apparently a show about prancing people on social media but the only people getting pranked are the network that buys it and airs it, because you just know Lohan will show up high or not at all, and the people who watch it if it gets picked up.

Consider yourselves warned.
Bette Midler is back on Broadway in a revival of Hello Dolly—currently the hottest ticket in town—and this week, during the show, about halfway through the first act, man in the audience began to feel ill. He made his way toward the aisle but lost consciousness and collapsed before the end of his row.

The show was halted, paramedics were called and they took him to the lobby. When he regained consciousness, they checked his vitals and insisted he should go straight to the hospital.

The man said:
“I’d sooner die than miss Act 2!”
And went back to the show.
Really FoxNews? Because this is what I learned ...
Russia’s cyber attack against the United States was specifically designed to undermine our democracy, hurt Hillary Clinton, and aide _____.
There are on-going investigations, dating back months, into whether or not _____ committed treason.
While there is no timetable for these investigations, by all accounts, they’re not wrapping up any time soon.
There’s absolutely zero evidence that President Obama ordered any “wiretapping” of _____ Tower.
Despite not a single shred of evidence, _____ continues to lie.
Republicans, worried about what might be discovered through these investigations, used Comey’s appearance before Congress to focus on the leaks, rather than the information that ______ may have committed treason.
But, let’s say that if all we learned Monday was that the FBI director says the current President is under investigation for potential collusion with the Russian government behind the cyber attack against the 2016 election — aka possible treason — that’s a lot to know.

So, um, to put it politely, FoxNews, get your lips off _____’s ass and f**k off.

Hugs to your father, and Foxy is beautiful. German Shepards are such beautiful and loyal dogs. You just knew Ivanka would end up in the white house, after her and her asshole father bluntly said she wouldn't. Both liars. Friends of mine just saw Hello Dolly......said it was incredible and from what they said, organismed right there in their seats.

Lindsay Lohan, such a waste of potential.
Wouldn't that guy miss Act 2 if he died?
I tried hugging my dog today. He wasn't in the mood and growled at me. That ten pound Maltese furbag has got to get fixed!

Professor Chaos said...

The media has been unwilling to call a lie a lie for as long as I can remember. Drives me crazy. But since Drumpf is the biggest, most audacious liar we've ever seen, you'd think thaey might find the cajones to finally say the "L-Word."

Fuck Comey. He intentionally sabotaged HRC's campaign. He should be shunned by decent society for helping to bring Drumpf to the Oval Office.

Jeez, when a Republican prez loses the Wall Street Freakin Journal. . .

Hey, TV networks, STOP ENABLING LINDSAY LOHAN! You're not helping.

Is there any sort of nefarious thing one could do with a laptop that one couldn't do with a smart phone?

Dave R said...

Send my feelings to your Dad, I understand the terrible emotions he's going through right now.

Blobby said...

oh honey! that 'Hello Dolly' piece is a cute "story", but it has a bad PR rep written all over it.

Helen Lashbrook said...

There are issues in Sicily over Romanian workers being paid less than the minimum wage and the women being raped by their employers. But then Sicily is part of the Mafia empire so what do you expect....except that the Roman Catholic church is leading the charge against this travesty....props to them for once

My heart goes out to your father. Hugs to him and to Foxy!
