One-Liner Wednesday — Take Two

“I think my positions are going to be what the people in this room come up with.”

In a meeting yesterday with all of the top congressional leaders in both parties, Donald Trump made it very apparent that he has no clearly developed position of his own when it comes to the issue of comprehensive immigration reform. He’s pretty much good with , and will sign, whatever the congressional leaders present to him.

Think about that for a moment.


Yes, I know I already posted for today’s One-Liner Wednesday prompt from Linda G. Hill. But when I saw this incredible comment from our president, I felt I needed to post this one as well.

One-Liner Wednesday — Pissing Contest

E11DB8B6-1B84-40CB-92A9-B6586956DAE5“Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”

Donald J. Trump from his Twitter account

Yesterday, after I posted this screed about yet another delusional, self-serving tweet from Donald Trump, I decided that enough was enough and that I was going to stop posting on my blog about the moron in the Oval Office.

But you know what they say about best laid plans and good intentions, right?

I recall how shocked most of us were during the 2016 presidential primaries when Florida senator Marco Rubio suggested that Trump had small hands for his height. “And you know what they say about guys with small hands,” Rubio said with a smile, prompting stunned laughter from the crowd.

Hmm, Marco, what do they say about men with small hands?

Trump responded to Rubio’s assertion during a televised debate of the GOP candidates, “And he referred to my hands, ‘if they’re small, something else must be small.’ I guarantee you there’s no problem, I guarantee it.”

Yikes! Candidates for the office of President of the United States making obvious allusions to penis size.

Now that Donald Trump is president, he’s upped his Freudian game about penis size comparisons with this tweet late yesterday afternoon from our Commander-in-Chief.
img_0369Trump’s tweet that his “nuclear button” is “much bigger & more powerful” than Kim Jong-un’s would be funny if these were two adolescent kids having a pissing contest behind the high school gymnasium.

But these are two world leaders, each of whom has at his fingertips the firepower to kill millions of people.

So when I heard about Trump’s latest tweet, I couldn’t stop myself from writing this post and wondering when action will be taken to remove this clearly unstable lunatic from office before his fragile male ego destroys the planet.

My best laid plans to stop posting about Donald Trump have gone awry.

One-Liner Wednesday — Good Judgement

“Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.”

Will Rogers

I like to believe that I generally exercise good judgement. And I also believe that good judgement is not something you’re born with. It surfaces only after a lot of trial and error, sometimes after years of exercising bad judgement.

As to what Will Rogers said, I tend to agree,  with one caveat. The difference between good judgement and bad judgement often depends on who is doing the judging.

For example, did the Republicans yesterday exercise good judgement in passing the new tax bill?

One-Liner Wednesday — Something in the Air

“One whiff and you’re stiff.”

Residents of the Irish village of Ringaskiddy claim that fumes from a nearby Viagra factory make the locals unusually frisky. They claim that their sex lives have improved since production of the erectile dysfunction drug began locally in 1998.

Ringaskiddy residents are fond of saying, “One whiff and you’re stiff.” They also attribute a baby boom in the early 2000s to the factory, and insist that the vapors are even affecting the village’s dogs, which they say “walk around in a state of sexual excitement.”
