If they were inflated with farts, would they float?

I can not attest personally to the quality of any of these. But I want one.
Oh good. Someone is making them. I looked about 10 days ago and couldn't find one. I will investigate and buy them for all my friends.

If there's anyone left who doubts that thump is a narcissist, I submit:
Quote:
“I want to begin today by expressing my condolences to the family of a person I knew well,” Trump said Thursday during a Cabinet meeting. “She worked for me on numerous occasions. She was terrific—Aretha Franklin—on her passing. She brought joy to millions of lives and her extraordinary legacy will thrive and inspire many generations to come.”
....
Source
My bold.

She WORKED for me?? I knew her (like hell!) and she fucking WORKED for me?? THAT'S what he has to say about Aretha Franklin? THAT'S her claim to fame? That's the noteworthy thing about her accomplishments and her life? Maybe he expects it to say on her tombstone, "I proudly worked for <you know> on numerous occasions."

Jesus.

If you would be so kind- report back on the quality of your purchase, I want some, too!

I've been wondering this too, but can't be arsed to click on any of these stories. I'm reading the headlines, and the pic accompanying the story usually has a blonde woman sitting next to Eric Trump, so I assume she's the person married to that shit-for-brains.

That'd be her.

What's even more pathetic than Trump's petty and authoritarian act is the response to it from the Party of Treason, i.e., the Republicans in Congress: https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/16/polit...nce/index.html Many supported it and the only one who spoke out against it with any force was Bob Corker.

They are all talking just about Brennan, who is an easy target since he has been very out front and vocal. But what about the other people who are on the "enemies" list? How do they justify that? What has Sally Yates or Susan Rice said in public that would rise to that level?

Which would suck for the poor damned grunts who've been roped into putting on a show for the asshole who wants them to patriotically refuse their measly pay raises.

In the wake of Aretha Franklin's death, I am waiting for President Chump to announce a day of mourning ... NOT.

The wife was watching the news today and told me when he did mention it, his focus was that she had worked for him. She wasn't sure what that was about. The best I can figure is he had hired her for a gig at his place at one time or other.

Here in Aus, Trump's tweets mentioned that she 'had a gift from God'.

My reading between the lines of course, it meant that Aretha didn't EARN her talent..it was 'given' to her.

Shitty whichever way you want to read it really.

He is absolutely not clever enough to have meant that.
