“Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him. His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn’t have the mental capacity needed. He was dumb as a rock and I couldn’t get rid of him fast enough. He was lazy as hell. Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!”
Trumph – the Insult Comic President™ on his first Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson.
Red has to agree that RT must have been dumb as a rock if agreed to work in this Reality TV Show Joke of an Administration. Anyone who does gets exactly what they deserve – a heaping helping of abuse and scorn. As for laziness, apparently Trumph is an expert practitioner of that art – so again Red will have to defer. As for Pompeo, Red is betting that when his time is inevitably up, he will turn out to have been a Satan-worshipping child molester.
“If this election is about how we’re going to fight to get nothing done, then I don’t want any part of it. I don’t want to be elected president to sit around and see gridlock just become so dominant that people literally are in decline in their lives. That is not my motivation. I’ve got a lot of really cool things I could do other than sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and me feeling compelled to demonize them. That is a joke. Elect Trump if you want that.”
Red was rummaging through old posts and found this one. Red will give JEB!!!!$$$$? his props when due. The dude could not have been more prescient.
Schooley on Twitter reacting to Trumph – the Insult Comic President™ effusively praising himself while also referring to himself as “President T”. HuffPo reports on the Twitterverse having a field day with this one. Oh if only Mr. T were actually president.
“There has to be a complete overhaul of the organization.”
Troy Aikman on the Dallas Cowboys (and a not so discreet smack down of Jerry Jones) a team that has won exactly two playoff games in the last 20 years, but equally applicable to the current state of the party formerly known as the GOP.
As Red has mentioned, he is perfectly okay with the Cowboys winning one playoff game every decade and they already have their win for the Teens when they eked out a come from behind win over the Lions in 2014.
And that is the sound of the six seconds of awkward silence from Cruz when he was asked at his second debate with Congressman Beto O’Rourke, “Tell us something you’ve done in the last year that has nothing to do with politics that would give Texans insight to who you are as a person.”
Cruz had no real answer after the prolonged silence because there is no possible insight into who Lyin’ Ted is as a normal human being. He is entirely a political creature consumed by narcissism and completely dedicated to the greater advancement of all things Ted Cruz. Nothing else matters to him but his quest to become President.
“I think he’s got a good shot. If he wins, it will be part of Texas political history, standing beside Lyndon Johnson’s 1937 congressional race in terms of personal effort, and perhaps besides John Tower’s 1960 election to the U.S. Senate, in terms of consequence.”
Lawrence Wright on Beto O’Rourke’s campaign for U.S. Senate. Red wants to believe, yet cannot. Rafael “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz (TP-Texas) will probably win by at least 5 points.
