Not as far as I know, but that's definitely been one of its recognized functions in recent years.

Trump's take on the murder of 'It" by the Saudis in Turkey meant nothing to him yesterday.
Today he's done a 180° flip, and pretending to be all concerned, but not in any meaningful way.

Turkey releases an American Pastor they've been holding for 2 years. Pastor with his wife meets with Trump to pray, because Trump is all about the heartfelt prayer. (Right Christians?) Chief Dipshit Baby wants to know...just one more thing: Who did you guys vote for?

Trump on climate change: "I think something’s happening. Something’s changing and it’ll change back again”.

Okay, folks, nothing to worry about then.

Painting of thump with past Pubbie presidents. You must follow the link and see this painting if you haven't already. My mind is completely blown.
Quote:
President Donald Trump liked a painting of him having drinks with Abraham Lincoln, Richard Nixon and Teddy Roosevelt so much that he called the artist on the phone and then put a print of it in the White House.
Called “The Republican Club,” the print of 10 Republican presidents sitting around a table could be seen briefly in the background of Trump’s interview with “60 Minutes” Sunday, and an image of that moment went viral on social media.....
The likenesses are good, but I swear, this is one step above (or below) the dogs playing poker. Apologies to the dogs.

I want to put a thought balloon over each head that reveal that president's thoughts.
Lincoln: "Who is this clown?'
Nixon: "Stop trying to top Watergate!"
Eisenhower: "So this is the famous Cadet Bone Spurs, eh? I'd like to take my spurs to him."

Somebody make it stop...

One of the most ridiculous aspects of that story is that he hung a print of the painting in the White House. Couldn't even be bothered to get the original.

In the painting, he must be swapping war stories with Ike and Teddy Roosevelt. I presume he's also telling Lincoln how a lot of people don't know he was a Republican.

Nixon is sitting there with one of the only drinks that seems to unambiguously be alcohol. Roosevelt next to him looks like he is about to mount the summit of that table. Then there's thump with an ice cold serving of his 11th Diet Coke that day.

Dubya looks real giddy not to be The Dumb One any more !


EDIT : I also love the fact that while everybody is smiling or laughing whole-heartedly, Trump has that awkward half-smirk like he's either not really understood the joke, or he's trying to pass for confident while is mind is screaming "WHAT THE HELL AM I DOIIIIING ?!!"

The liar-in-chief said back in July that he'd donate a million bucks to the charity of Elizabeth Warren's choice if a DNA test proved she's an Indian. She has done so, the test shows native American ancestry, and he denies he said it.

Link.

Trump's got a long history of promising donations and then either not making them, or donating less than he said he would.

In the painting, is Trump holding something in his left hand? Or is he partly turned in his chair, and that's the edge of the backrest?

There are Democratic versions of the painting, too, BTW:

The poker one is interesting, albeit awful. IIRC, Truman was an avid and very good poker player. ISTR a story about Truman and Churchill taking a train to Missouri, where Churchill would deliver his Iron Curtain speech, and the two men passing the time with booze-fueled poker showdowns. Anyway, fine poker player he may have been, but Jackson is sitting there with a gun and a short temper, so I'm guessing he came away the winner.

ETA: Kennedy is sitting out the hand because it's not strip poker. Johnson is waiting for a literal dick-measuring contest to start.

I can see his point too -- it was, "I'm going to bullshit her while I troll and make myself like a big man with a million dollar offer but when push comes to shove I ain't gonna do shit."

I think he's probably had that made into rubber stamp.

This story is from April 2016, and quotes stuff Trump said back in 2005, but I missed it at the time on both counts:
Quote:
"Do you actually change diapers?" host Anthony Cumia asked Donald Trump on the Opie and Anthony show in November 2005.

The then-59-year-old businessman, whose wife Melania was pregnant with his fifth child and her first, responded bluntly: "No, I don't do that."

"There's a lot of women out there that demand that the husband act like the wife, and you know, there's a lot of husbands that listen to that," Trump added. "So you know, they go for it."
As one person said at the time in comments, "Donald Trump and babies’ diapers have one thing in common, they’re both full of shit."

Speaking as a father, Trump can go fuck himself, preferably with rusty farm implements. Like a combine, maybe.

Nixon, Reagan, and the Bushes erased, yet they left Coolidge in.

I despise Silent Cal as much as the next guy, but that seems like unnecessarily harsh treatment.

It's the one in the bottom left I'm unsure of. Looks kind of like Mao, but a portrait from when he was older would be more easily recognized, and I can't imagine it's just because of positioning, since Satan's neck is doing a 170 turn.

I'm sure it's supposed to be Chairman Mao, and the style is very reminiscent of Chicom propaganda posters from the 60s, but I can't really pinpoint the source (they printed so many of these fucking things...)

Uh, yeah, sure....

AP: On the subject of American soldiers and military overseas, why have you not yet visited a military base in a combat zone like in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Trump: Well, I will do that at some point, but I don’t think it's overly necessary. I've been very busy with everything that's taking place here.

As the website notes, Trump absolutely asked for it:

Quote:
"I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to go play golf." --Donald J. Trump, August, 2016

Our President made a promise to the American people. Here we track his fulfillment of that promise.
Donald Trump spent much of the Obama Administration snarking on the President and his family for golf outings, vacations, and the associated costs to the taxpayers. Now that Trump's own Presidential leisure excursions are proving to be far more frequent and costly than Obama's (for instance, in less than two years he's taken nearly half as many golf trips as Obama did in his entire eight-year time in office), he has nobody but himself to blame if he gets mocked for his hypocrisy and lies.

President Comacho was in Missoula yesterday. I was reading the local paper this morning and I learned this is his THIRD maga rally in MT in the last 4 months.

a) Remember when people used to complain about Obama golfing occasionally? If you add up all the time Comacho golfs and rallies, you are left with single-digit number of days left for presidentin' (that's probably a good thing).

b) MT gets a grand total of ONE representative in the House (that's out of 435), but 2 Senators. This isn't really related to Comacho beyond pointing out the importance of converting that one blue seat to red for him. I think each senator in that state represents about 500 humans, several million sheep, and a couple billion pronghorn. Also a shitload of oil, coal and minerals.

At that rally, Trump sang the praises of Representative Greg Gianforte, who was caught on audio body-slamming a reporter last year right before a special election to fill the Montana House seat. Gianforte won the election but later pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault.

Trump said

Quote:
“Any guy that can do a body slam, he’s my kind of guy,” Trump said at the event as supporters cheered him on. “I had heard that he body-slammed a reporter ... and he was way up, and I said, ‘Oh, this is terrible, he’s going to lose the election.’ Then I said, ‘I know Montana pretty well,’ and I said I think it might help him. And it did.”

It's not so much him doing that (he has praised him before), but doing so when the controversy over Khashoggi murder (and it seems likely that murder it was) is still in the news, is remarkably tone-deaf, even for Trump.

Still, it'll play well in Montana. More's the pity.

My bold.

There's another phrase that has become meaningless: "even for Trump."
