Hillary Tears Trump A New One

And there is the glorious sound of silence from the Republicans.

We are having lovely weather here so I am a bit lackadaisical about posting.

Cry Me A River


If you lie down with dogs, you will get up with fleas.

I have heard this harpy on Fox News. I have no empathy with her whatsoever.

Just Personal Shit

What a week! It started off with an Atlanta gentleman claiming that he was related to us. This was quite a shock to my 89 year old mother.

So, I like a mystery (Palin emails) and got stuck in. And waded and waded. DNA tests are the only answer. I swear I have gone through all the shipping lists from 1903 and I am fecking exhausted.

In the midst of our maybe new found relations, I was busy trying to calm down daughter. Her Leaving Cert results are out….

For anyone who is not Irish,  this is a big fucking deal.

I met her in a secluded place and she sat in the car beside me. She was already sobbing and I asked her if she had opened the envelope.

She turned on me and told me not to look at her.

This is not the best time to tell your daughter to cop herself on.

I pretended not to watch as she valiantly tried to tear the envelope open.

She tore little bits of the envelope off. It was all I could do not to tear it off her.

I have taught her how to make banana bread, next on the list is how to open an envelope.

Well she finally read her results.

That girl done good.

Trump And The Racism He Can’t Hide

Trump insults African-Americans as he tries to prove that he is not racist.

“What do you have to lose?You’re living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs. Fifty eight percent of your youth are living in poverty. What the hell do you have to lose?”

Holy shit! That is going to win him more votes.

But as Josh Marshall explains…

There’s a long history of Republican candidates making nominal ‘outreach’ to African-American voters not for the purpose of attracting African-American voters but to signal to moderate and/or educated white voters that they’re not racist…

…they’re so wrapped up in racial antagonism that they can’t keep track of whether they’re trying to execute the standard faux outreach act or just angry trolling. It’s all so close to the surface they can’t help blurting out lines that sound more like something you might say shooting the shit with David Duke. Trump’s ‘appeal’ amounts to a diatribe against African-American life which bristles with contempt. Kingston is the same, just in a different form. In the following interview, when Keilar presses Kingston on why Trump is doing ‘outreach’ from all white suburbs, he tries to parry her question but then he blurts out: “Maybe it would have been nicer if he had a backdrop with a burning car!”


The video can be found at the above link.

Even when they are trying, the fools can’t hide their racism.

Trump’s Campaign Mess

Courtesy of The New York Times:

LAS VEGAS — Donald J. Trump has shaken up his presidential campaign for the second time in two months, hiring a top executive from the conservative website Breitbart News and promoting a senior adviser in an effort to right his faltering campaign.

Stephen Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News LLC, will become the Republican campaign’s chief executive, and Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser and pollster for Mr. Trump and his running mate, Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana, will become the campaign manager.

Paul Manafort, the campaign chairman, will retain his title. But the staffing change, hammered out on Sunday and set to be formally announced Wednesday morning, was seen by some as a demotion for Mr. Manafort.

The news, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, was confirmed early Wednesday by Ms. Conway in a brief interview, but she rejected the idea that the changes amounted to a shake-up and said that Mr. Manafort was not being diminished.

 Stephen Bannon directed that dreadful film about Sarah Palin…”The Undefeated.” Trump’s campaign is sure to benefit from this bone-headed idea.
What on earth was Trump thinking with that bigly head of his?

Expect The Unexpected

My mother had a visit from an American last week researching his genealogy. It has thrown us all for a loop and we have been busy researching our ancestors.

Add to that that I am flat out bored with the Donald. I need to take a break from the fat buffoon.

Back soon.

Just taking some Irish time.
