Random Musings

Melania _____ plagiarized gave a speech at a UN luncheon this week where she spoke about motherhood being the “most important and joyous role I’ve ever had.” And then she talked about the need to stop cyberbyullying.

Um, Melania, stopping bullying starts at your home. And if you’re serious about being a great mother you’d stop your husband’s bullying before your son picks up that habit.

Just sayin’.

PS How terrified does she look?
Once again a Republican has shown themselves to be ...

A] Stupid,
2] Insensitive
C] A racist, bigoted white supremacist asshat.
D] Or, in the case of South Dakota Republican Representative Lynne DiSanto, all of the above.

DiSanto posted this meme to her Facebook page:

Along with the caption:
“I think this is a movement we can all support.”
And, while most of the comments were supportive—it’s South Dakota, after all—as the post went viral the comments became more condemning of Di Santo, and she took it down.

Too late, honey, we all saw that, barely a month after Heather Heyer was run down in Charlottesville, that you think it’s “okay” or “funny” to kill protestors.

Sophia Vergara is a mainstay at any awards show, and I always look for her, not because she’s got her boobs up and her ass out in some tight mermaid gown, but because she’s married to Joe Manganiello, and I’d like to climb him.

But at last week’s Emmy’s she was escorted by what looked like a Disney cartoon prince come to life: her son, Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara.

He’s got mama’s steaminess.
And from the land Down Under ...

Australian rugby legend Andrew Johns, above, has come out in support of same-sex marriage by posting a photo of him kissing fellow Newcastle Knights player Billy Peden:

“Two boys from Cessnock will be voting yes.”
The post has been liked more than 5,000 times, with many thanking Johns for his support.

But, on the other side of that coin, another Aussie rugby player, Israel Folau, right, took to Twitter to explain why he’s voting ‘No’ on marriage equality:
“I love and respect all people for who they are and their opinions. but personally, I will not support gay marriage.”
I love and support you but I will vote against you having the right to marry the person you love. Doesn’t get more hypocritical than that.

PS Um, Andrew? If you’d like to do more men kissing men photos in support of same-sex marriage, I’m available?
I didn’t get a chance to talk Emmy fashion this week, so I narrowed it down to my Best and Worst:

MY BFF Nicki Kidman really brought it. Simple and elegant and regal. And, sadly, Tracee Ellis Ross looks like she’s auditioning for a new Christmas movie, dressed as a glittering snow elf.

Tracee should take a page from her mama, Diana Ross, when it comes to fashion.
Carlos has come up with a new habit that is either designed to gaslight me into madness or to simply bug the crap out of me.

He times commercials. I know. But, watching TV one night, as the commercials aired, he’d watch and then say, “14,” or “29,” or “a minute thirty.” I asked politely:
“What in the holy hell are you doing?”
He said:
“I noticed most commercials are 14 seconds long, with a few at 29 seconds and the phone and drug ads are a minute thirty seconds long.”
I got up and he asked:
“Where are you going?”
I replied:
“Is the town gun shop still open?”
Luckily, I am afraid of guns ... and the shop was closed. Better still, I got out my cartoon mallet.
Hot Emmy’s Men? Why, you don’t even have to ask, and, again, as I missed recapping the snow, I’ll narrow it down to two—Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara excepted:

Alexander Skarsgård. I even like his slim 1960s mustache; and Donald Glover in royal purple.
Now, back to fashion ... I am not really a fashion whore; I mean, I like nice things and I like to look good, but I don’t follow trends or go way off in the Crazy Trend Zone like this ...

This “sweater”, designed by Raf Simons, looks like nylons and knee socks got together, did something nasty, and demon spawned this hideous piece of fashion made all the more hideous because it retails for $1650!

Now, if you aren’t a member of Free The Nipple, or you’re just shy about, you can get a more prudish version at Barneys for $1,150.

Be warned: if I see anyone wearing this on the streets—though in Smallville that is highly unlikely—I’m’a be throwing paint on you.
Well, even though he first testified in private, it now appears that Little Donny will give public testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee this fall, to discuss that meeting with a Russian lawyer who promised him damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

I hope he ties himself up in knots and is dragged out of the hearing in chains and sent to prison. Treasonous little prick.
Now, onto Daddy ... _____, free from those pesky hurricanes that took up his golf time, jetted away for another weekend in New Jersey, while a group of Deplorables gathered in DC to demand protection for "traditional American culture” ... you know, “white” culture.

Racists Supporters came from around the country for the ... ahem ... "Mother of All Rallies" that organizers billed as the “Woodstock of American Rallies”. They hoped to rally one million people to DC in support of their cause but, um, yeah, the crowd was slightly less than a thousand lunatics in stupid red hats.

Even his inauguration had a wee bit bigger crowd. Sad.
Lastly, some more hot Men ... from The Sinner on USA, we have Eric Todd as murder victim Frankie Belmont—who is seen in flashbacks with a nice backside—and Jacob Pitts as drug dealing maniac JD.

Just sayin.

(sigh) I wish we could find more intellectuals in the USA who would make us shine again. instead all we get are vapid "celebrities" and h8ers!

In the morning I run back msnbc so when The Engineer sits down to eat breakfast I can fast forward thru all the commercials and he can see programming instead listen to the ads.

Groan. Sigh. Groan. Groan. Sigh.... I'm not quite sure of the order. But have you seen the Dad Bod fanny packs? The perfect accessory for that Raf Simons sweater! I've already got my sweater (a bargain at twice the price) and I'm waiting for the Dad Bod fanny packs to go on the market.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Oh, that last tweet, LOL!

mistress maddie said...

That shirt???WHY? And Barneys is selling it? Oh dear.....

That woman republican needs to sit down and shut the hell up. A different story when someone in her family is hit nd killed.

Oh dear...Carlos. Should we find him a hobby Bob???

And Sophia Vergara is one person who grinds, GRINDS my gay nerves. I can not take even three seconds of her....that voice... and just can't with her.

Robb Delman said...

My Dear...Jacob Pitts provided eye-candiness in "Justified" also. Almost (and I stress ALMOST) giving Mr.Timothy Olyphant a run for his money...granted, I'd tune in to watch T.O. read the phone book.

Bob Slatten said...

I watched Justified because of Olyphant. I mean, a good show, but, suh-woooooooooooon!

Dave R said...

Okay, I have to ask, just what was that glow-in-the-dark, ultra neon pinkish purple balloony things Melanoma was wearing? I mean, it looks like something the Easter Bunny leaves when he's on acid.

Thought FLOTUS looked dreadful at the UN; a bright pink potato sack is NOT a good look
