The Bennie & Jimmie Show

Bennie Thompson just can't seem to tell the truth about Donald Trump and Clarion-Ledger reporter Jimmie Gates just can't seem to report the truth as well.  The Donald visited Jackson last week.  The Bolton Congressman and our favorite fraudster, Derrick Johnson, did not exactly roll out a welcome mat for Mr. Trump during the press conference they held during his visit:

Didn't disavow support from Klan and David Duke? Hmm..... The Clinton News Network must have made up this headline back in March:

Of course, this is not the first time Mr. Gates has not told the truth when it comes to stories that are racial in nature 
and this one is no exception. 

Kingfish note: And no, I did not vote for Mr. Trump in the primary.   Y'all are itching to comment about the Presidential race so consider this post your chance to do so.

You know Bennie, it's a shame you have to take pot shots at Trump for taking the time to visit our state. Sure he didn't have to since he'll likely win here in Nov. But the fact is he did and brought a little attention to our corner of the world, if only for a few hours. Hillary will never grace us with her presence so whatever. Let's not focus on the political rhetoric. Actions speak louder than words.

"Thompson said the public doesn't feel comfortable going to a Trump public rally setting like the one at the Mississippi Coliseum" - according to Gates.

So - the Donald should rearrange his campaign schedule to suit what Bennie thinks he should do? Last time I checked, Bennie is for nobody but himself. Of course, this year in second place is Hillary.

While not a big fan of the Donald - and not quite sure why he was campaigning in Mississippi anyway - I am glad to see his campaign is running at least as smooth as to not be consulting with Bennie or Derrick about what type events he should be scheduling. And if Bennie thinks that 'the public' is not comfortable attending an event in the Coliseum, maybe he ought to try coming by the grounds during the fair next month. Plenty of public - including his crowd - will be there. Why they wouldn't be 'comfortable' at a political rally needs to be explained by Bennie. Or Jimmie.

I have wore out the video of the Trump rally in Jackson. When I saw Kristen Wiig making those hilarious expressions on the stage, I thought "now even Hollywood and SNL are behind Trump"

Bennie could have appeared on stage here holding the state flag. But that's none of my bidness.

I went to the TRUMP RALLY and enjoyed every moment of it. Maybe Bennie "da godfather" Thompson will hold a rally at the coliseum and he can complain about us white guys to an empty room.

While Trump will certainly win Mississippi and most of the other southern states, that may be all he wins. He's playing defense in Georgia and Arizona and Utah is lost. When the prediction markets( these are that people that actually wager on elections) only give you a 20% chance of winning your in pretty bad shape.

Well, I understand those who lie to cover their ass, to promote themselves , line their pockets and don't want to admit to screwing up. Don't respect those folks, but I understand them as those behaviors are fairly common in humanity. And, those people can still have some redeeming qualities.
But, let's do talk about words versus actions about Trump for which there is evidence. There is evidence of adultery ( Marla Maples). There is evidence of debt and bankruptcy ( court records there too). There is evidence of his businesses operating outside the U.S. to use cheap labor ( see David Letterman interview ). There is evidence that he was friends with the Clintons ( wedding photos) and good enough friends that the daughters were best friends ( their words and photos). There is evidence that he's married to someone from a former Soviet country who is young enough to be his daughter ( do the math). There is evidence that men with far worse medical conditions than Trump claimed went to Vietnam...some of them even volunteered and died over there ( numerous non-fiction war accounts in books and on veteran sites). There is evidence ( see a topographical map) that you can't build a wall across the entire Southern border and there's that tunnel problem and cost problem. There is evidence that we imprison cartel drug dealers who are not American citizens and may be here " illegally" or because their countries can't keep them from escaping. "Deporting illegals that are criminals" isn't a good blanket policy and better not be a law as the consequences would be disastrous! Russia isn't hacking Trump's campaign and Manafort was helping a Russian puppet. He hired Bannon and his record is out there for those who can face being duped. Whether Trump denounced the KKK or Neo Nazis in a timely manner or not, the fact is they are supporting him.
But, the worst thing Trump said as far as I'm concerned, is that he had always wanted a Purple Heart and accepted it as his. It will never be his. A Purple Heart is something you earn. You can be given one to keep in remembrance of the personal sacrifice of the one who earned it ( I have my father's and husband's framed with their other medals on my wall), but it is NEVER YOUR Purple Heart. And, you don't EVER attack a family in grief, especially a Gold Star family unless you are a heartless asshole! The man who doesn't understand these two basic principles is not a Patriot and doesn't understand the word patriotism!
Donald Trump is either a bull shitter, a con man , a pathological liar , psychopath or all three!

Feel better &7:09 AM? You aren't persuading anyone with the too oft-repeated tiresome screeds.

Joseph said...

From 7:09: "Donald Trump is either a bull shitter, a con man , a pathological liar , psychopath or all three!"

Well, technically that's four. So...he's a politician? Eh, doesn't surprise me.

I'm no Trump apologist; I dislike the guy, and it dismays me that he's the GOP nominee. But Bennie hollering about racism makes me chuckle, given that I've heard more than once that he's refused to let white folks from his district into his Congressional offices.

Anonymous said...

7:09 Donald Trump is likely your next president so learn to respect him. You don't know the circumstances behind his acceptance of that Purple Heart so until you learn why it was presented to him by the recipient, just shut up!

What about John Kerry's Purple Heart? Tell us all about it!

6:44; While making book on presidential elections is illegal in the U.S., from which corner of Vegas are you getting your information? Maybe that old Italian storefront down in New Orleans that sells day-old pizza?

6:44 is a fountain of misinformation. Trump leads by 15 in Utah vs Billary, leads by 20 in a one on one matchup.

I saw Bennie in Bolton this Easter as I was leaving from a morning of turkey hunting. He was driving a brand new Toyota Landcruiser with an msrp of close to $90,000. I bet he's trying to be a man of his constituents pimping that thing around.

Why didn't Bennie hold a fish fry and extend an invitation for Mr. Trump beforehand? Bennie love a good fish fry, but I guess that's only for votin' time.

Anonymous said...

Did anyone actually read all of the blathering in 7:09 post? Wonder if he has ever seen a list of the problems the Clinton's have? So far I haven't heard of Trump letting foreign countries have access to top secret documents that resulted in the deaths of our citizens.

@7:09 Have you ever looked at the EVIDENCE against the Clintons? Far more important that anything Trump has or hasn't done.

Insecure folks like 7:09 overrun their verbal headlights.

Bennie is my former Congerssman, I don't care that much for him because he like the rest, "tell you what you want to hear and do nothing"! 9:36 for him driving a $90,000 vehicle is nothing, the man is worth well over $2,000,000 million. Like most US Congerssman that serve over 8 years, you can't help but make friends, business deals and money. Don't hate! Bennie is smart!!!
My Congressman is (Steven Palazzo) smart!!! My point, Palazzo may spend $90,000 on a boat, I'm sure he has the CASH!!!
I'm sure Palazzo has had a shrimp/crawfish boil like Bennie has fish frys. Different Congerssional District, Differnt Tastes!

THE <> poorly educated misinformed Mississippi followers will get behind whatever huckster is espousing there flavor of hatred. It never fails in this run down state.

That appears to be the case with 7:09.

Regarding Trump, I attended his $1,000/plate dinner in Jackson last week. The best comment I heard was from Trump who, when introduced by Phil (screaming) "the next President of the United States" said thank you Gov. Bryant - what a piece of work!

@ 7:09 - facts about hucksters and snake oil salesman will not be tolerated round this here parts.

All you folks who think Trump is going to win, please don't riot when he gets creamed. They planned it all.

Anonymous said...

3:02, sure they planned it. All of the democrats and republicans got together and planned it out. All of those republicans running were just doing it to make it seem like it wasn't planned.
Please tell me you are too young to vote.

Anonymous said...

4:54 you actually think Trump is a Republican?

Anonymous said...

The Repubs didn't plan it, but I think 3:02 is on the mark. The Dems planned it, and the Donald was in on the planning. Trump is no more a republican than he is a democrat; he is a Trumpite - someone who's only interest, and philosophy is that of Trump himself. As he has admitted, he plays both sides, puts his money where he can buy what he wants, and has supported as many Dems as Repubs over the past few decades.

He doesn't care about winning - if he did, he would be running a campaign aimed at winning and that is about as far away from what he has done the past four months as possible. He is on a monster ego trip that once its over, he can go back into his self-promotion with a new vigor.

Just a little something for all of you hardcore party members. There is not any difference in a democrat and a republican. They are all politicians and will change sides any time it is advantageous for them. Please notice all of the politicians who have changed parties just to get elected.
We, the U.S. do not need a republican, democrat, or a politician in office. Look at where it has gotten us by electing these thugs.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
