Nurse the Hate: See You At The Apocalypse!

I have said it before and I will say it again.,  In retrospect, it might have been a mistake to have elected a completely unqualified reality TV show star as president.  That argument of “I think we should have an amateur involved so we can shake it up” is not looking as strong now as it did during those fun TV speeches.  Well, that is unless your idea of “shaking it up” was World War III.  If so, it’s looking up for you!  While rationale human beings attempt to work out a complicated problem, Our Leader doesn’t have the interest or ability to understand the situation.  He thinks the move is to yell “No, I will kick YOUR ass!” via Twitter from his country club.  He is approaching the North Korea situation like a 15 year old would a rival from a competitive high school.

It’s time to look at the bright side.  If we are going to have a nuclear apocalypse, I think we should do it right.  I think the timing of this upcoming solar eclipse will be absolutely perfect.  Even deported Mayans would have to buy into the idea of the sun vanishing followed immediately by a blinding flash and everything being on fire.  It has all the makings of an outstanding Judgement Day complete with Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  I hope my entire Trump voting county will head on outside in their “Make America Great” hats and continue to tell me how awesome Trump is as the flesh of their children melt off their bones.  I feel confident that even as local families burst into flames, hopefully after watching millions of Koreans die live on Fox News, that their final words will be “Trump is still doing a great job!  Hillary would NEVER have done an apocalypse this well!”.  My final thoughts will be “God dammit, why won’t they ever admit they are wrong?” and then “Fuck, being on fire really sucks!”.    

Trump does not seem to do anything well with the exception of giving those Thousand Year Reich speeches to his base.  I watched the first 15 minutes of the last one in Youngstown.  He spent a great deal of time talking about how “they” keep treating “us” unfairly.  In case you are confused, “us” appears to be “white people”.  He also was very vocal about how unfair the media was to him to the roar of the Monster Truck looking crowd.  The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC (or everyone but the right wing agenda formatted Fox News) is not being fair for ostensibly revealing facts that make Trump look badly.  Trump tells lies.  The media fact checks.  Trump gets crazy because they reveal he is lying.  He goes crazy and lies some more.  Repeat.

Trump does not appear to know anything about anything.  It’s worse than anyone would have guessed.  He makes George W. look like Noam Chomsky.  Trump has no actual policies or plan.   He is the ultimate example of the Peter Principle in which someone rises to the level of his incompetence.  He is shockingly inept, acting strictly on misguided impulse.  He is winging it with all of our lives in his hands.  I feel like I am strapped into a school bus that is being driven by a drunk that just took three hits of PCP and is screaming at invisible bats flying at the windshield.  There is no escape unless either the soulless vampires of the GOP discover their civic duty and act to remove him, or the glacial wheels of the Russian investigation finally link the Russian money, meetings, and bizarre protectionist relationship to Trump.  Perhaps the only hope is that our soft orange blob of a president blows his back out on the golf course and has to remain sedated until 2020.  If not, enjoy some more “winning”.   See YOU at the apocalypse.

Your rants really make me want to Google this dude, but he seems like a jerk, so I never bother.

Sometimes I think he's a puppet or animated character

He most certainly does not appear human in this photo. At least not the sort of humans I pal around with. I'm curious why you hang around him when he upsets you so.

And what's up with the one glove on his left hand? He seems quite pleased with himself in this photo for some unapparent reason. Maybe he pooped on the toilet this day and that's a "wiping" glove?

Those are also some hefty khaki slacks. I am concerned that the waist size might be from the Men's BIg & Tall section, or at the very least "husky" section.

It's been a long time since I had those instructive classes in 2nd grade on what to do when the Cuban bombs fell (we're a good bit older than you)and my Mom packed up the interior closet with canned goods and water. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to get down underneath a desk anymore and my current house doesn't have a basement --should we tape heavy duty aluminum foil to the windows and walls?

Foil pretty much works for everything.

Can you recommend what Aldi's wine goes good with Civil War?
i'm on a pre-apocalypse budget.

A sensibly made Cote du Rhone will be excellent for ushering in domestic unrest.

Trump has access to 1000000x the info you and I have. You don't think we have drones/spies/hackers that know exactly what they have/are capable of? Please. Trump is a shrewd guy and he knows when to press and when to lay off better than the talking heads who hate him.

Your hysterics would be comical if they weren't so predictable. A wine snob who sneers at those who believe in someone who has actually accomplished stuff in his life versus a biased media who gave >90% of their political donations to his opponent. It's no surprise why the media hates him: he humiliated them on Election night and exposed their phony ass polls.

"Trump does not appear to know anything about anything". You're right bud, being a multibillionaire is easy! So is climbing to the top of an entrenched political party with 0 political experience. Anyone can do that, it's like, so easy! He clearly doesn't know salesmanship, leadership, finance, real estate, human psychology or managing people or "anything about anything"! It's all been a big fluke!

He was born into money. His gift is self promotion and media manipulation. Who knows what his real financial with is? It's likely a myth. PT Barnum was great at all of those things. It doesn't make him a leader. It makes him a con man.

P.S. I would recommend a crianza Rioja. It's awesome with poultry like crow which I suspect is on the menu soon.

Yes, he was born rich, so what? Is that a crime?

He turned $1mm into several billions. That's not my #, that's from Forbes. Dude, you can't just con up billions over several decades out of thin air. Self promotion and media manipulation do not tell you how to buy/sell NYC real estate, finance it, fill it with tenants and grow a brand across continents. Who are you kidding? Just admit he is not an idiot or doesn't know "anything about anything". This hyperbole is nonsense. There are dozens of reasons to hate him, his supposed lack of intelligence isn't one of them. He is a smart and successful person, that is not up for debate.

This country has been overspending, overfed and overindulged for decades. We've had record low interest rates for longer than ever in history and gotten by with borrowing trillions. The economy is one bubble after another. I'm sure things will blow up on his watch. Some of it will be his fault, but most of it won't.

The most important issue when building a country, team or band is: who are the members? Trump gets this and pushes hard for no illegal immigration and legal immigration reform. I was just visiting Amsterdam and the "EU Passport line" had 50% of the women wearing a hijab. Think about that. Is that a good thing? All the cool Euro countries + Canada are heading that way; I'm glad we have a President who sees that as a tragedy.

What's the best wine to have with the next (inevitable) attack from a member of the religion of peace???

Before you accuse me of racism, based on my appearance, I pass for Islamic. :-)

I think we could have a lengthy conversation about Trump's business success and failures. There are certainly plenty of both. Just because you know how to make money in a strong bull market of NYC real estate doesn't mean that you know anything about North Korea, how our government works, immigration, the Middle East, etc. Trump only knows one thing- how to lie for his own benefit. He has shown absolutely no aptitude for this job. He has been exactly what the worst fears were about him- impulsive, ill informed, and self serving.

Your immigration reform comments could switch out "hijab" for "babooshka" and they would have fit in 1892. The country has always stood for being a melting pot of cultures and ideas, not just ideas old white guys approve of. And I say this about a man that took days to clarify he was against white supremacy. Seriously, if you can't come roaring out of the gate at Nazis with criticism but shoot off fiery tweets at anyone that has offended you personally, is that what America needs in a president?

P.S. Chateau Musar from Lebanon is terrific.
