Trumpton - the rant thread

  • The eventual movie will be x-rated because its a porno.

    There's various discussions in cyberland. That a prior president was investigated for a land deal and the investigator stumbled over a dress and oral sex with an intern while sorting that out, and the lies about it. But lying and adultery aren't important things any more? particularly if you're an American evangelical according to polls, because he's a King David or something. I guess there are jokes about it all, but it all seems quite beyond joking.

    Melania must know that she's married to an adulterer and liar. Maybe it's okay with her? Ivanka his daughter: her father already told the shock jock Howard Stern about her sexual characteristics, and Stormy Daniels says he made parallel comments comparing her to his daughter as they screwed. Beyond prurient, disgusting, appalling. :confounded:
  • I heard that pornographers are really pissed off at Trump. That can't work out how they are going to parody his porn presidency.
  • If, as many people think, Melania feels trapped and wants out, she may be well and truly stuck. Presumably, there's a pre-nup, and it favors T. He and his lawyers are unlikely to let her leave--especially with Barron, their son. She loves that kid, and she's unlikely to want him to live with T--who is absolutely unfit for Barron to be around *at all*.

    IF T is impeached, indicted, 25th-amendmented, that might give Melania a chance to slip out--literally--and at least get a trial separation. (Whether legally or informally.) If she could at least get full custody of Barron while T is sorting out his legal problems (long may they last), then Melania and Barron might at least have some time to recupe for a while.

  • I really couldn't give a tinker's toss for any member of the Trump family. I don't particularly dislike them. I just don't want anything to do with them. I would be very happy indeed never to hear the name Trump again

    Isn't she quoted somewhere (I don't remember where) as having said, "He married me for my looks. I married him for his money. What's wrong with that?"

    I would have them marry the various Kardashians and live on a desert island together. Happily or not I don't give a damn, just so long as I never hear from the Orange People again.

    For sure, you'll then have Kirsty Young do a couple of Desert Island Discs with them. And do we really want that? Probably not.

  • My esteemed Cousin R. postulates that, in fact, the USA DOES NOT EXIST, and has not done so since about 1960 (not quite sure why he fixes on that date).

    Americans visiting the UK? Liars, or deluded, one and all.

    Films/photographs? All faked.

    News bulletins, tweets etc. purporting to come from Usania? All faked.

    Trump? A figment of someone's seriously diseased imagination.

    IOW, American Shipmates, you are living in a Grand Illusion. Would that it were so, and that you could return to sanity promptly.

    The only problem that I find with Cousin R's hypothesis is that somehow it denies the existence, and work, of Barack and Michelle Obama - and that I cannot accept.

    If Cousin R. can avoid using puerile names like "Usania", that's at least doing better than you.

    Tiffany appears to have very little contact with her father, and also appears to be the most well adjusted. Your scenario is a generous one for Baron

    You may think that. I couldn't possibly comment.

  • I was wondering whether Dave would get that, then I remembered that Kevin Spacey does a turn in the American version, which I have not seen. House of Cards I think its called. Is Ian Richardson the English actor, and would Spacey's version use the line? I initially thought it improbable, but then thought of the comedian John Hodgman.
  • Dave WDave W Shipmate
    I get that Bishops Finger is a smirking jackass; I don't really care what kind of television he watches.
  • Simon Toad is right - Ian Richardson in House of Cards it is.

    As for being a smirking jackass, I take that as a compliment from someone whose sense of humour appears to be sadly impaired.

    Sticks and stones etc.

  • What you don't seem to get is that plagiarised or not, your peculiar brand of vocabulary translates overall into contempt for an entire nation of the kind you would be the first to criticise Trump for.

    Then it's not meant to. The contempt is for the POTUS, and for him (and his minions) only. I can only sympathise with those who have to suffer him, and wish that it was all a bad dream, from which they could soon awaken.

    However, point taken.

    So have I got this right? Trump's personal attorney negotiated a $1.6 million payoff to the deputy finance chair for the Republican National Committee to pay off a Playboy Playmate who he got pregnant and who went on to have an abortion?

    There's just no other place for this than Hell.
  • And it might help explain why the GOP has been so unrelentingly behind Trump. Has his fixer been fixing all their dirty laundry?

    That, and Trump (or someone like him) is the candidate the Greedy Old Perverts have been moving towards for four decades now. If this were a revelation about Newt Gingrich, for example, or Dennis Hastert would you really be all that surprised? Well, Hastert maybe, but only because he seemed to prefer teenaged boys.
  • GOP=Greedy Old Perverts. First I've heard that. Nicely done.
  • {Tangent on deTrumpifying your day.}

    I came across the Detrumpify browser extension/add-on a couple of days ago, and I love it. Kind of like the Daily Mail blocker that takes a detour to a page of kittens. Except this, depending on settings, can replace pics of T and others with various mellow pics right on the page; and replace names with various levels of insults. Available for Firefox and Chrome. Not sure about other browsers.

    I've been tinkering with the settings. Currently, it displays mellow pics *and* clean Shakespearean insults. (Well, I have it set to Clean and Shakespearean, but that's a bit of an oxymoron. :wink: Just not modern cuss words, though I think that's an option.)

    IME, it works on most pages. (Mentioned in the link.) So I rarely have to see a pic of T. You can set how often you want things replaced, because it can slow down your Web-ing. AIUI, the code is available at Github, if you want to adjust it further.

    Anyway, this may help ease the T-related stress many of us have mentioned.
  • Remember in Downton when Cora slips on soap at her bath and miscarries? Read Donnie for Cora, keep the soap, and read breaks his head for miscarries. Or just make him Mr. Green.

  • Uh, no. I'm trying to be in a good mood.
  • So is a porno actress is going to take down the turnip before he bombs Iran? What's the invasion schedule? Better hurry. And will the parasite replant the tree? What sacrifice is demanded to defend his dishonour?

    How the hell can we invite Trump to the UK after this?

    His supposed source says that Trump has missed the point, but that is what politics is about. Abuse the evidence and exaggerate for political advantage.
  • EirenistEirenist Shipmate
    Trump probably doesn't really want to come. But Mrs May and her sqabbling brood are desperate . . .
  • As this is Hell, can I say that I would rather like to see T***p lying on a blood-covered 'war-zone' hospital floor? Not dead, O no, but in pain, and without any health insurance to pay for treatment....

    Anywhere will do, UK, Syria.....anywhere......

    Why is she sick?

    Her spokespeople have been cagey about her recent kidney surgery, so we don't know why. The exact medical particulars aren't really our business anyway.
  • 72 year old with a 48 year old. Melanoma is closer in age to his daughter who is 37. Creepy.
  • Golden KeyGolden Key Shipmate
    But that means Melania is technically old enough to be Ivanka's mom. (Kids are getting sexual and pregnant earlier.)

    So maybe not so creepy.
  • LydaLyda Shipmate
    An eleven year old mom? Now I'd call that creepy.

    Oh, is it a Melanoma on her kidney? I'm not looking for sympathy in what follows, just splurging it out, and it is only prompted by no prophet's post while I am in this mood, not the other times I saw the post or the nickname.

    Melanomas killed two of my aunts and the belated treatment of one killed my Dad. Only one of my aunts died young though, as in her 60's. It's a big killer downunder. I don't know if there is a relation, but there was a hole in the ozone layer in the 1980's that stretched from Antarctica to South-east Australia. Plus, we didn't have decent sunburn cream until about 20 years ago. I used to get sunburn across my shoulders annually in the '70's. I remember having to keep my shoulders bare because it hurt to have a shirt on.

    The Leader of the Opposition has a mole on his temple, just where my Dad's melanoma was. Every now and then I have to swallow an urge to ring his electorate office and find out whether its been checked.

    Yeah, this has been bothering me and I wanted to edit it, but I couldn't remember what thread!

    So I apologize for the stupid/awkward way I said the above post.

    NP commented on the age difference between T and Melania. There's 24 years between them, and many older men marry women with a much greater age difference.

    So I don't think the age difference between M and Ivanka is necessarily creepy. (And yes, girls do get pregnant much younger these days, though admittedly not usually by choice. And I somehow managed not to think of that, very stupidly. I was thinking strictly in terms of ages. (embarrassed icon) )

    Per his public comments, T does have incestuous feelings towards Ivanka. IMHO, *that's* the creepy part.

    I sincerely apologize to anyone I offended, by posting without thoroughly thinking.

  • RooKRooK Admin Emeritus

    False.

    I think I've seen this before Amanda, and like last time, it has taken a number of days for me to be able to face up to what I have seen, and the fact that these men are President of the United States and his lawyer. Are you able to provide any context to the film, or are we just meant to cope with it as is?
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    I don't have any context to provide. But it does illustrate that those two aren't fit to lead a Roto Rooter down a clogged toilet.
