Nowhere Man

By 33230715130361 On April 27th, 2020

Knock Knock.
Who is there?
Orange.
Orange Who?
Orange you glad the Orange Man is not giving a Press Briefing today!

In the course of American History there has probably never been a greater display of ignorance, vanity, lying and petulance than President Trump’s carnival barkering press briefings during the pandemic. Taking a page from North Korea’s leader he is going to hide. It was an astounding performance while it lasted. A nation of orators, Lincoln, Reagan, Roosevelt, JFK, King, Bryant, Douglas and Webster, reduced to watching a man deny things he said weeks before, days before and minutes before. All the while his political minions praising him and respected Civil servants engaged in verbal acrobats to explain respectfully that he was absurd.

At least that harrowing part of his daily briefings will no longer plague the nation.

  1. I feel bad for Doctors Brix and Fauci, who would be working for someone that they likely don’t respect at all, having to share the stage with the imbecile.

    Now that Trump has been put in the penalty box, maybe some work can get done.

  2. //reduced to watching a man deny things he said weeks before, days before and minutes before.//

    One of the many mistakes he and his devotees make – and this is one of his biggest assets in their eyes – is that he enrages his opponents.

    Certainly, over the years, the US and its governments have aroused a range of emotions in the rest of the world – love, hatred, envy, respect, rage, admiration….. But now, the farcical display at the Disinfectant concert last week and the sight of the President of the United States pathetically trying to look intelligent as he staggered from one cringe moment to the next has replaced all former reactions with something very new – genuine pity.

    //having to share the stage with the imbecile.//

    Did they really have to?

  3. Trump deserves a Noble Prize for his press briefings.

    They are trying to save the country.

    If the doctors don’t work for Trump, he could hire quacks who promote Clorox and Lysol consumption in their place.

    Do you doubt for a second that this could happen?

    Thanks to Trump, we have articles like this.

    Thanks to him, the poison control operations in various states had an unusual number of calls over the past few days.

  6. Trump Derangement Syndrome [#TDS] is a condition that afflicts Trump supporters, not his detractors. Key features of TDS include irrational subservience to authority, deficits in critical thinking, and morbid investment of one’s personal identity in Donald J. Trump.

  7. The leader of the most prominent group in the US peddling potentially lethal industrial bleach as a “miracle cure” for coronavirus wrote to Donald Trump at the White House this week.

    In his letter, Mark Grenon told Trump that chlorine dioxide – a powerful bleach used in industrial processes such as textile manufacturing that can have fatal side-effects when drunk – is “a wonderful detox that can kill 99% of the pathogens in the body”. He added that it “can rid the body of Covid-19”.

    A few days after Grenon dispatched his letter, Trump went on national TV at his daily coronavirus briefing at the White House on Thursday and promoted the idea that disinfectant could be used as a treatment for the virus. To the astonishment of medical experts, the US president said that disinfectant “knocks it out in a minute. One minute!”

    Trump really was speaking of people putting bleach and other toxins inside the body. We all saw it.

  8. The inject disinfectant suggestion raised the farce to a new level. How could any sane person say such a thing? It is on video for all to see. Trump put himself in new territory. Nobody has come to his defense because to do so is to label yourself as insane as he is. For now he is hiding, but how long will that last? It is likely his personality will demand public appearances, and more insane statements. One should consider that the person who suggests injecting disinfectants is the same one who controls nuclear weapons.

  9. Trump’s press sec says he’s holding a briefing tonight.

  10. And there goes my silver lining.

  11. The Thunderbirds and Blue Angels will fly over NYC and Philadelphia tomorrow in a salute to health care workers.

    Quick, someone complain.

  12. hahaha,

    so he’s coming out swinging

    “what am I an idiot, do i look like an idiot to you Mike”

    “funny Jim, how am i funny Jim ?” ( Acosta )

    “Do I amuse you? Br.Birx , do i make you laugh? ”

    “Am I funny, what like a clown Dr.Fauci ”

    popcorn time

  13. “I am all in on Joe Biden. You see the wall that’s right next to you, I’ll vote for the wall over a guy who tells me that I should pour Clorox into my mouth. Listen, I think we are in deep shit. I think we could have been ahead of this curve.”

    Howard Stern

  14. yes amazing phantom, was going to add that too, you beat me to it :

    “What’s it going to take? I don’t get it,” Stern said of the president’s comments. “I don’t think there is anyone left who will vote for him.”

    Stern suggested a massive rally for Trump supporters where they can ingest disinfectant and “all drop dead.”

    expect the tweet soon from the Trunk
    Howard stern is a loser, his show’s been tanking for years now, since he joined # fake news

  15. Trump appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show many times back in the day.

  16. Biden is getting a nice stream of high profile backer
    alas he won’t get Putin, we’re pretty sure Putin is backing Trump 😉

  17. Trump should hold a rally in Ohio next week. Followed by rallies in PA, MI, AZ, WI and FL.

    He loves an audience and his base loves him. He should go for it.

  18. Kurt, don’t be smug or complacent. Trump could win in November.

  19. And he should shake hands with everyone.

    All attendees get a free gallon jug of Clorox.

  20. I don’t think there’s any room for complacency regarding the November election. As it stands now I think honest Donald is the marginal favourite but let’s see what deveolps between now and November.

    Whatever the outcome, history will not be kind to him.

  21. History won’t be particularly kind to those who voted for him, truth be told.

    Why would anyone think that this guy had the qualities of a good leader?

    Many here gave loud warnings in 2016. He was a very known quantity.

  22. That press briefer was a disaster. He should do them every day.

  23. Suddenly, the skylight disintegrates in a shower of sparkling glass shards, causing all to leap backwards. When the dust settles, there, standing in the rubble, stands America’s greatest defender, resplendant in his flowing moustache, Bible in one hand, gun in the other, vodka in the other (!?), bald head gleaming in the evening sun.

    “Ya pack of gits! What a maroon! Trump may be a carney barker, but he speaks for the vast majority of USAers! We have 300 million people in this country, and each one has 600 million guns, and none of them have ever been used in crime! Read the Constitution and you’ll see it’s true! Every one of you lives in a bubble, or else you’d know that I’m right! Did your Mom call you Sunny cos you’re not so bright, cos denial ain’t a river in Eegi…Ejipt…north Africa! And anyway – what about the Beast!? How come nobody has mentioned her yet!? Or Obama!? It was his fault Trump got elected in the first place! No, wait. That’s wrong…wait a minute, I got this…oh yeah! 500 investigations, costing quizillions of dollars, and they couldn’t find a single crime! Not even an unpaid parking fine! I’d happily debate this respectfully with any one of you, but you’re all too stupid. I love you all.”

    A flash of light! A sound like roaring thunder! Then a slow limp towards the door.

    “What!? Crashing through skylights would hurt anyone! Anybody got a cigar?”

  24. Bye 🙂

  25. Ah, a welcome voice.

  26. Funny.

  27. Yes, wicked good.

  28. Perfect!

  29. what a case of spin…… you go Mahons lmao

    Tomorrow 5 pages of internal emails and hand written letters will be made public showing that the FBI/DOJ framed General Flynn……

    TickTock

  30. Seimi.

  31. Then a slow limp towards the door
