Having the last laugh

Perhaps President Obama should have kept his mouth shut.  The President humiliated Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents Dinner back in 2011.  But don't let me tell you about it, watch the video for yourself....

and decide whether this motivated Mr. Trump to run for President.   Watch the video all the way through.

That entire Frontline piece was great. There is no doubt in my mind this was the point at which the seed of Trump's decision to run germinated.

It will not be long before you can't find a person who supported President Trump.

Kind of like the way you can't find a person that supported Obama, right?

Wonder if Obama still thinks he was funny?

Anonymous said...

Yes, it perfectly explains Trump and his thought process. He wanted to be president because Obama made fun of him. Not because he has any detailed plan to help this country or its citizens but simply because his ego got bruised.

Sour grapes must taste awful. Especially those that have fermented since one was a college sophomore. Prunes taste much better and will have a far more beneficial result for you liberals. A dozen prunes are guaranteed to work in about two days which will put you almost into the weekend at Sal and Mookies or Babalu.

Sour Grapes taste like this elitist attitude from the left that cry foul when someone puts a label on them, but are quick to put a label on anyone who isn't with them. Couldn't have happened to a better bunch of assholes. Trump may not be the best, but his not a Clinton, and that apparently is what this country wanted.

So this is about revenge for being laughed at, and not about the people of this country? Can we get Ted, John K, Jeb b, or Marco Rubio to come back and let us have a redo?

Bet Obama is looking at Obama care a little different now. It is a failure just as he was. He will be gone shortly and Obama care will follow. Is there anything that Obama did during his 8 years that will be around after he leaves?

Let's not assume this is a reforendum. 26% of voting age people elected him. 25% voted Clinton. 49% didn't bother to vote.

correct 7:52. about the same numbers as B Obama in 2012. Although this time there were a few less total votes, but still close to 49%. What's new?

Trump has a mandate.

What It Really Means.. said...

OK Class - Your assignment this week is to send someone to the flip chart and list as many reasons as you can why this doesn't really mean Trump was elected.

I'll start: Only a small number voted so his election doesn't really mean America wants him to be president. Those who slept in or otherwise stayed home (or in their safe place) out-number those who voted. This means a majority of us acknowledge that we don't have a president at all. So, Trump is a myth. Next?

8:44 pm A mandate is winning the popular vote and the electoral vote. Mr. Trump did not win the popular vote.
LBJ had a mandate, but that didn't make him a successful President, did it?
This election proved that we are literally divided in half as a people. And, unlike 1860, there is not a clear geographical divide. In many states, it is neighbor against neighbor.
The people have spoken and it would behoove everyone to be gracious in victory and defeat.
None of our Presidents have been perfect. If you objectively look at all our Presidents, each make a mistake at sometime during their presidency. JFK had the Bay of Pigs disaster and was a flawed man but thank God he was able to handle the Cuban Missile Crisis well. Reagan had Iran Contra but brought us together as a Nation.
All of our Presidents have learned to their dismay, that they could not do some of the things they promised during a campaign. And, they learned there was information that they did not have while campaigning that were game changers.
I voted for Mr. Trump in the primary but I did not vote for him for President.
But, he is OUR President-elect. I hope he succeeds more often that he fails. I hope he is not subjected to 24/7 personal attacks and smears that will make him ineffectual on the world stage as our President's strength in the world comes from OUR support, not his personal charisma or lack thereof.
I am grateful that he or anyone else is willing to make the personal sacrifice to hold office in such contentious times. He knows he is also sacrificing his family as these days, the entire family is subject to personal attack.
All of our Presidents age badly while in office for a reason.
You are not helping him to fan the flames of discord whatever your party affiliation.
We cannot get the best of us to run for office if we continue down this path. We will get egotists, sociopaths, or masochists .
If you want our politicians to put the country first, you damn well ought to do the same.

He shouldn't have shut up a damn thing! That asshat of a so-called Republican got all moist and couldn't take the heat after he questioned the mans nationality and level of intelligence. SO congratulations kinfolks you just elected a hyper-sensitive p*ssy to run the country. So yeah, he's all warm and fuzzy because Obama has to hand him the keys. But the POTUS is going to hand him the keys and just chuckle because Americans chose a 70 year old cry baby that has the mental maturity of a 13-year old white suburban cheer leader. Ol' candy ass som'itch!

If anyone will get the last laugh it will be the people who did not vote for Trump! Pull up to the table and have it, he's bound to fugg up some 'itch in the first 72 hours he's officially in office.

God bless humanity

Look idiot - Obama served for 8 years in the Illinois State Legislature as a Senator before being elected as Senator for the state of Illinois. So that is 12 years of experience in elected office

But simpleton racist such as yourself ignores things like facts and lets a persons skin color dictate to you how worthy a person is to do a job

Ignorance is such bliss!

Yeah - all those "present" votes signified a depth of thoughtful analysis that is unprecedented in American history.

Go look at Trump Tower. Wolman Skating Rink. His Golf courses and casinos. All stand where noting significant stood before. The guy has vision, and drive to get things done.

Go down to the border and look at Mexico. Soon you won't be able to see it from the USA.

And the "racist" tag is so tired it should be euthanized. I despised his white half as much as his black half, and 100% of the content of his character. Happy now?

Anonymous said...

7:25 Actually, all those years drawing a government check as a legislator equal ZERO experience as CEO running something. Obama had less executive experience than someone running a lemonade stand, vs Trump's experience expanding his father's business in one of the most competitive businesses in the country's most competitive city.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for confirming bottom feeder that Obama had less experience. Experience in elective office as a Senator means jack shit and the proof is in the total failure of the Obama presidency.

Donald Trump has more failed ventures than successes, why the F*ck do you think he didn't show his tax returns!? Because it would have given you a true measure of what he does, how he makes his money, gains and losses! But many of you blind bigots chose him because you were feeling all fragile. Freakin' idiots!

This Presidency wasn't a failure and that's just programmed freaking blind bias. Not an ounce of objective thought in the last 15 minutes on this thread.

Bruce Springsteen didn't have a clue.

In fact their candidate goes out of her way to insult the very people who should be her party's base.

When Hillary Clinton said, "We're going to put a lot of coal miners out of work," every blue-collar worker who heard that had to wonder if his job would be the next to be sacrificed to the God of Global Warming.

Similarly, when Clinton put a quarter of the electorate into her "basket of deplorables," how could she fail to realize that she had just filled a basket with a demographic group that traditionally voted Democratic?

This was as big a mistake as any presidential contender has ever made. But the Democrats convinced themselves they could make up for it by appealing to other constituencies such as environmentalists, feminists and Latinos.

They learned a bit late that there aren't all that many environmentalists, feminists and Latinos in those Rust Belt states where Trump was able to draw a crowd of 30,000 or so just by announcing it on the internet.

Kingfish said...

If that is indeed what motivated Trump to run, it lasted all of two days once he began campaigning. It is very grueling and takes a toll on everything in your life as well as your body. Look at Trump's schedule the last few days before the election. Hurt feelings over that banquet don't fuel that kind of drive nor energy.

As for mandates, that's a cute trick and is used whenever a Republican wins. It can be said about every President. Clinton only got 43% of the popular vote. Guess he should've just stayed in the Lincoln Bedroom and let the country run itself.

You win, that is the mandate. Period. It can be abused or used wisely, that is the winner's choice but victory is its own mandate.

We finally have a president who has made a living for himself and many others not connected to govt. benefits. The people have had a habit of electing people who only have experience living on the govt. dole. Look at where that got us. It is time we tried a person who worked for a living instead of holding his hand out to some form of govt. benefits.
Things may not change but we will have at least tried. We know what we have right now and the last 20 years hasn't and isn't going to work. Give the people who do not depend on the govt. for a living a chance.

You folks who are hung up to total votes need to go back and read the rules. It is like football. The winner is not the team who has the most total yards, but the team who scores the most points. Sometimes the team with a lead will run the clock out and forgo yards they could have easily had to make certain that when the clock runs out they have the most points.
In our current situation California has more people than the 2nd and 3rd most populated states combined. But California is very liberal. So Republicans spend very little or perhaps no time and money In California. That is 49 million people that you don't try to get to vote for you.
Hilary is ahead by about 200,000 votes nationwide but she won California by about 2,500,000. And Trump conceded it to her. He got 1/3 of the votes without trying. If total votes mattered he certainly would have spent some time and gotten more votes in California. New York is the same way. The largest state when a Democrat has no chance would probably be Tennessee, population 6.6 million.

I wouldn't pose with the orange pussy either. Trump is dumb as dirt and if we don't have 10 trillion in debt by the time he is impeached and jailed, it will be because he defaulted on that like he has on everything else. He's a cheat and failure.

Why do the post-modern socialist types always scream 'Bigot' and 'Racist' when something doesn't go their way.

I heard Trump live, twice....and many more times televised. I never heard any suggestion that he dislikes people of any particular race or that he favors one over another (the true definition of racism). In fact, he said at least a hundred times that he intends to make life better for black folks who have been failed by democrats for a hundred years.

Now if you want to say Trump has disdain for people who won't work, who ride the wagon, who can't follow the simplest rules of law and who come here illegally....go for it. That doesn't equate to racism, however. That makes him a true American in the original spirit.

I think the part yall are forgetting is he is the executive branch and is charged to enforce the laws of the US. This one promise he made enforce laws that have been swept under the rug by The current lame duck. I think people are voting for enforcement of laws we have currently.
List of lack of enforcement.
Borders - we have laws no enforcement
Immigration we have laws no enforcement or executive privilege to circumvent
Guns - we gave guns to Isis and yet we don't trust Americans with em'
Gun laws - zero enforcement of current gun laws about felons trying to get guns
Fast and furious
Marijuana laws - zero enforcement
Tax fraud by legislators - zero enforcement
Taxing conservative groups
Forcing people to purchase insurance
Supreme Court reasoning behind this was strange
Equal punishment for the same offense: a general and sec of state(emails)

International policy - Libya Syria : better or worse?
Libya ambassador better or worse?
Israel better or worse position?

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.

Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
