Recently some resistance advice went viral and it took me a few minutes to feel it was all wrong (don’t mention his name, only policies). That was maybe good psychiatric advice to deal with malignant narcissists, but when one has all levers of power in a society, support needs to be fully eroded. So, I am going with
Gary Kasparov who said it in his interview
things won’t really change unless enough Republicans start to see Trump as a liability to their fundraising and reelection chances. That could be quite soon if he can’t fulfill his many campaign promises. Making him look like a loser is crucial. Either the GOP will turn on him or he will be chastened and more likely to compromise. If a demagogue succeeds in claiming credit for wins and scapegoating his enemies for losses, he’s very hard to stop.
and I saw it before in an awesome tweet storm
and my favorite
and let’s have a visual aid of Leslie Jones playing him as he hates being played by a woman so much, and let’s face it – a black one should add to his rage
On edit, Donald the Weak
Like the bellowing Wizard of Oz, however, those boisterous attacks merely hide the weakness of the man behind the curtain, weakness that has already been exploited by both his staff and outside interests.
and since he craves approval so much, some numbers
or, as Josh Marshall puts it, So Much Winning
-15 net job approval
and here’s Emo 🍊 whining on Twitter
and his team of weaklings
This weakness contributes to a climate of rudderlessness and depression in the White House, with multiple factions anonymously backbiting each other and angling for clout by leaking juicy details of administrative incompetence to the press. The fact that Spicer wasn’t Trump’s ideal press secretary keeps finding its way into palace intrigue stories. “A little bit of under-competence and a slight amount of insecurity can breed some paranoia and backstabbing,” a White House official complained to The Washington Post about chief of staff Reince Priebus. “We have to get Reince to relax into the job and become more competent, because he’s seeing shadows where there are no shadows.”
confirmation from FB:
Former Trump supporter 🔫here. I’ve finally had enough. Trump spent his first week as president whining like a little bitch about his inauguration attendance. He spent his second week lying his ass off about voter fraud. Then he spent his third week getting reamed until he was butthurt by federal judges. On top of that, instead of draining the swamp, he’s filled his cabinet with the worst of the swamp asses and cuckoo bird generals. And one of those cuckoo bird generals just got fired, after only three weeks! Donald Trump is a no good, lying, sumbitch con man! ….
TRUMP LOSES AS HIS TRAVEL BAN DIES IN COURT
the internet started to put this in visuals
and Twitter has a hashtag #Trimpsoweak
In fact, one popular picture that’s making rounds on Russian social media this week is a photograph of graffiti sprayed on the side of a garbage depot that reads, “Trump is a f*ggot.”
and look at Sputnick now
and all papers after Putin told them to cool it
wasn’t goingg to pay attention, but the creativity on Twitter compels me to collect
Todd Dracula takes us to the movies
others, remembered Hole
as others focused more on 🍊
others looked at the (very) big picture
as others looked at the small numbers (46.4% now for 🍊)
Seinfeld Today did their thing
while others made a movie out of it (leaving the Blanche du Bois lighting behind)
and simple is sometimes effective
Someone please help me with the referrence here
and a compilation
I watched it on TV and Tweeter – and there were some beauties appearing on my page.
Podhoretz was feeling in hell –
jpodhoretz John PodhoretzSeriously. This is comedy Hiroshima.
The appearance of Yusuf Islam – now only Yusuf produced some great comments.
Harry Shearer wondered where his last name went.
I’ve seen video of that British TV segment abt Rushdie on YouTube. Stevens/Islam had it pulled down re: copyright claim. I wonder why.
Here’s the video of Stevens/Islam on Rushdie: http://is.gd/guDMB
I bet Yusuf hates being called Cat Stevens as much as I hate being called Anakin
It wasn’t a big shark but Jon Stewart jumped one just now with the “everybody on Thr cable is the same” naiveté
@littleleaf2 when did I say I loved Jon?
Salon Salon.comHas Jon Stewart jumped the shark?
tomtomorrow Tom Tomorrowby edgeoforeverThis is sounding like a college freshman stoner session. Dude if we just all remember we’re like human beings you know?
digby56 digbyThis might be useful if even one right winger gave a damn. Essentially he’s just telling the left to pipe down. They sure won’t.
Interesting Stewart and the White House echo the same critique of 24/7 news cycle. But isn’t that a function of blogs and online community?
Putting forth this idea: Obama wouldn’t be president without the 24/7 news cycle
chrislhayes Christopher Hayes
Sort of amazing how far the irony/earnestness pendulum has swung back towards irony after just 2 years.
jpodhoretz John PodhoretzTragic fact: Sanity really right about where it was before 11 this morning.
I have never been a fan of Tom Tomorrow. I don’t remember him being that lucid in 2008.
This however is one of those just right moments
