I Didn't Say It ...


_____, having a meltdown at his press conference about the midterms after CNN’s Jim Acosta asked about his racist fearmongering ad about the caravan:

“That’s enough. That’s enough … Put down the mic …I ’ll tell you what. CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN. You’re a very rude person. The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible. And the way you treat other people are horrible. You shouldn’t treat people that way.”

Pot.Kettle.STFU. You clinking clanking clacking collection of caliginous junk.
Jason Blum, producer of Get Out, being removed from L.A.’s Israel Film Festival stage after criticizing _____:

“The great thing about this country is that you can like _____, but I don’t have to, and I can say what I feel about it — and I don’t like it! As you can see from this auditorium, it’s the end of civil discourse. We have a president who calls the press the enemy of the people. Thanks to our president, anti-Semitism is on the rise.”

He’s absolutely right. Just look at _____’s presser this week and his pissy little boy meltdown.
Chuck Schumer, calling _____ “delusional” for claiming victory in the midterms:

“When the president says what happened in the Senate more than undoes the losses they suffered across the board elsewhere, he’s delusional. If we had told you a year ago we were only going to lose two or three seats, people would have said forget it, what are you smoking?”

How you can call it a victory when you went form controlling both Houses of Congress to just controlling one is delusional!
Seth Meyers, on the Blue Ripple and Kim Davis:

“If you’ve been in the desert for two years, a little splash of water feels like a damn tsunami. [But] the Senate is on a different planet. That’s why Ted Cruz looked like he burst out of someone’s chest. [And] in a huge victory, Kim Davis … lost her reelection bid. And fun fact. Her opponent was a gay wedding cake!”

It may have been a Blue Ripple, but ripples have a long-lasting effect.
Tass Rushan, a FIFA European Champion pro gamer, on being banned from competing after calling an opponent a “fag”:

“It’s a very unfortunate, unintentional misunderstanding from my end. Due to where I’ve been brought up, the connotation of that word from my perspective until now, it was just another word for prick or idiot. Not even one per cent of me knew it had any type of derogatory connotation towards homosexuality at all. First of all, if I knew it did, there is no way I’m saying anything like that. I would never say anything like that, trust me. I think some of you guys could back me up on this. Who’s from London? Did you know that word had that connotation?”

Nice try homophobe, but in 2018 anyone who says they don’t know that fag is a derogatory term is full of the shiz.
John Legend, on trying to talk sense into Kanye—Good luck with that—after Yeezy boarded the _____ train:

“I understand what Kanye sees in _____ and I think it’s a reaction to his personality and his marketing panache and don’t-give-a-fuckness. But my point to him was that when you wear that hat, when you appear to be endorsing him, you’re endorsing his policies as well, all of his rhetoric and not just the parts you like. I think we had to talk about it, because we didn’t want people to be deceived into following his line of thought without considering the full ramifications.”

Gosh John, you might have used a few less polysyllabic words so Kanye could understand he’s an idiot endorsing an idiot.
Pamela Anderson, who says she was molested and victimized as a child, now says the #MeToo movement is trash:

“I think this feminism can go too far. I’m a feminist, but I think that this third wave of feminism is a bore. I think it paralyzes men, I think this #MeToo movement is a bit too much for me. I’m sorry, I’ll probably get killed for saying that.”

You’ll just probably get taken to task for trying to explain away other women’s stories of sexual assault as a ‘bore.’
Look, Pammy, your fifteen minutes is up, so why don’t you just sit quietly until we call for you again.
Oh, and we won’t be calling.
Debra MessingWill & Graceblasting NBC for airing that racist _____ ad:

“To Will& Grace fans—I want you to know that I am ashamed that my network aired this disgusting racist ad. It is the antithesis of everything I personally believe in, and what, I believe, our show is all about.”

It was a disgusting ad, so much so that even Fox refused to air it. And after Messing’s comment, NBC decided to stop running it, too.
Zach Wahls, gained notoriety back in 2011 when he gave an emotional speech about his two moms, on winning his race for Iowa Senate District 37:

“I hope tonight marks a fresh start for Iowa. We must all come together to bring real reform to our health care system, restore a tradition of excellence to our public education system, and raise incomes for Iowa’s working families. It’s time to start thinking about the future of our state again, which is why I’m so proud of and thankful for all the young people in high school and college who propelled our campaign across the finish line.”

Sadly, Iowa also reelected racist Steve King, but maybe with Zach Wahls around they’ll get the picture that hate is not what’s best of Iowa, or anyone.

Bob, thank you for putting El Gato Guapo back on top! One can never get too much of smiling!

Helen Lashbrook said...

Fag has NEVER meant idiot; it is/was a slang term for a homosexual. The other use for the slang was a cigarette. Anyone claiming to be from London or any other part of the country would know both uses of the word.

Tuxedo demanded it!

Abby reluctantly will allow me to say
I loves Tuxedo opening too.

"Faggot" also meant a bundle of sticks, but not in Tasha's sry Tass's century or even the last... back to the bench he go-eth!

Deedles thinks Tuxedo is smiling?! If Smiling = plotting-world-domination, then yes...

It's Jake, Just Jake.

Deedles said...

@Anonymous- Of course cats don't smile, they smirk! Tuxedo just always puts a smile on my face. What can I say? I love black furry critters and Balder Half is happy.

Are you sure this isn't potpourri Friday?

Some one should have told Jason Blum Criticizing the Idiot jerk is the same as criticizing Netanyaho ho ho.

Schumer should have scratched his head after that and said, "this guy's fucking nuts."

Seth was a little too kind to Kim I think.

So, do Pamela Anderson's lips legally qualify as a flotation device?

Zach Wahls = young voters, Steve King = old, white racists.

I’m from London. I know what fag means. I also know a prick when I see one.
