Well documented racist, confessed felon, and all-around terrible person Dinesh D’Souza is being promised a pardon from the current President via Twitter this morning.

Because he was "treated very unfairly" by the government.

Kathy Griffin on Twitter: "A) One year ago today my Trump photo was released. I have planned on doing this thread for a while but the fact that Sarah Sanders brought my name up at the podium today makes it even more appropriate for me to share some thoughts on what happened.

Today at the grocery store the lady in front of me didn't have enough money to pay for her shopping. I think she was mumbling something about having left her card in her other purse and she was digging through her wallet looking for any change. It came to something like £28.40 and she managed to get £28 together and she was looking a bit frustrated and defeated. I didn't really realise what was going on at first and was just sort of thinking "hurry the fuck up lady, I have shit to do". But around the time she said I only have £28 I sort of put it all together and finally realised what was happening so I gave the cashier a quid and said "just use this".

The lady was very appreciative, the cashier was relieved and the old lady behind me said "That was really, really nice of you". All I said was no worries, it was only 40 pence, no biggie.

But I really wanted to say "Just remember that came from an immigrant" :D

Further to the Cunt Conversation:

Obviously it was her decision, but I really, really wish Samantha Bee had merely apologized to TBS for using a dirty word on their network. Ivanka Trump IS a feckless cunt, and doesn't deserve one word of apology. Roseanne Barr* insulted a woman for her heritage and appearance. Samantha Bee just used a nasty word to call out a genuinely oblivious, tone-deaf action.


* God DAMN, the coverage of this shit is fucking stupid. She didn't just call her an "ape," but that's all the fucking media can focus on at one time. The "Muslim Brotherhood" part of it absolutely should be examined just as closely; it just takes more unpacking of the layers of racism and miscellaneous bigotry than our news media can manage. Then again, all they had to do was quote the full alleged "joke" rather than reduce it to a single word. Normally I'd think repeating it would do more harm than good, but it's so pants-shittingly stupid that it reflects on Barr waaaaaay more than it ever would on Jarrett.

In case the overwhelming bad faith on display here wasn't already completely transparent, I feel obliged to note that, on several previous occasions, Samantha Bee has called someone a cunt on her show, and I never heard anyone complain until today. I've probably only missed a couple of segments ever, apart from the closing segments TBS rarely puts on YouTube. Not a word for any of the previous ones. And, of course, Roseanne Barr called Hillary Clinton a cunt on Twitter a few years back. Not that any of the people protesting Bee care about double standards.

My favourite response is from Sally Field.

Lest we forget, she uses almost as freely as a Scot - as punctuation as much as an insult. Samantha has gone so far as to embrace her cuntitude.

This piece by Deadspin's David Roth is a thing of beauty.

Quote:
The President of the United States just fucking sits there and watches television all day long, in large part because he is on television a lot now. He is either pleased or displeased by what he sees, and he shapes his actions—and, more or less by accident, the scope and tenor of our broader national politics—in response to what he sees. Some unlucky but mostly invisible people suffer greatly as a result. Some even unluckier people might even die. They may be dying now. They may in fact be dying right outside, right now, but the program is in commercial break at the moment. William Devane is telling the people at home about gold. An octogenarian former game-show host the color of a walnut is explaining how a reverse mortgage works, kind of.

None of this troubles the loop. Trump watches and emotes; he excretes and consumes. That a great and greatly conflicted experiment in self-government has come to this—a whole nation trying to talk a shitfaced trust-fund lout into a cab so that he won’t mow down everyone on the sidewalk, and then talking about what a fantastic job he did barfing in the ashtray—is one thing. It’s many things. But none of those things are complicated.

Everything, everything, about Donald Trump’s two-year war against the NFL, which took its latest oafish turn when the president disinvited the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles from a White House visit that the team seemed less than eager to accept in the first place, has been predictable. The only people who could not have seen it coming are the very people who did not see it coming—the plump defective oligarchs who run the NFL, many of whom gave millions of their own dollars to Trump’s rancid failed prank of a campaign. They believed that Trump was their peer or their friend or anything but what he is and has always so blaringly been, so they tried to make some sort of deal with him on the player protests against police violence and impunity that Trump identified as something that could be weaponized in his favor.

Because NFL owners are quite stupid even by the water-brained standards of the ultra-rich, they devised a strange sort of tiered non-compromise compromise on the protests in the hopes that Trump would stop ranting about their league and the ungrateful, un-American, subhuman thugs who are both its labor and its product. They did this without the consent or even the input of the players, which displeased the players. And Trump, because he is Trump, did not accept the deal. He’s a man who only knows how to do a couple of things, but one of those things is to find a bruise and then push and push on it. He does that very well.

Trump told the owners this, directly, but they didn’t believe him. “You can’t win this one,” Trump reportedly told Jerry Jones in a phone call. “This one lifts me.” The owners thought, despite that, there was a solution that could lift everyone—a nice deal that lets everyone continue to do their respective looting in happy parallel. In that, they fundamentally misread the situation and misunderstood their counterparty. They haven’t listened to the people mounting the protests, of course, but they somehow misjudged Trump, too.

The people mounting the protests have made the same simple and humane points for years and have been answered only with the laziest umbrage and bad faith, which is more or less the response that such protests elicit in America. But Trump also hasn’t changed his broader position; he is not listening or learning or changing, because those are not things he does. He is pushing and pushing and pushing at this issue because that is what he does, and because he is nothing without something to push against. There is no compromise to make. Trump wants to become the world, to erase and expunge everything from it that is not him or about him. A generation of the worst and most hard-hearted people that this country has ever produced are lined up outside the church he has opened, and they are willing to leave everything outside in order to gain entry. It’s the only way in. It’s the only way there will be enough room.

There is no reason to assume that Donald Trump even knows the words to the national anthem. He definitely does not know the words to “God Bless America.” Because these songs are not about him, there’s no real reason to believe Trump really cares about them much at all. What matters about the mild and respectful protests that NFL players staged during the playing of that anthem, to Trump and everyone lined up behind him, is how it can be used. He understands that because it is about him and can be used to his benefit, so he cares about it a great deal.

Trump doesn’t honor anything on Earth more than himself. The republic for which all this stands is an abstraction in which he transparently has no interest, or anyway nothing that he’d put above even his pettiest personal or business interest. He is not sincerely offended by black or brown players performing an act of protest during a song so much as he is offended—affronted, sure, but more deeply threatened—by their disobedience in doing so after having been very clearly told that it bothered their betters. He is not alone in this, but here as elsewhere Trump has backed into being a perfect avatar. He is not the only person who believes that people protesting against unrelenting, unjust, unaccountable state violence are doing so primarily to be annoying, but he is the only one who can get those other disordered people to pile into a convention center to listen to him interrupt himself and complain about it for a couple hours.

Trump doesn’t understand loyalty in any meaningful way, because he is not capable of it in any meaningful way. There is no other person on Earth who really seems to mean much to him outside of what they say about or could potentially do for him. But he definitely has an understanding of loyalty, and that is roughly as something that an employee owes an employer—as a thing that runs up and only up, and is non-negotiable, and is in the end about always and without complaint doing what you’re told. Among Trump’s many strange rhetorical tics is using “like a dog” as the most devastating of insults, which is weird enough when you consider how awesome dogs are but which seems more significant in light of the fact that his understanding of what loyalty looks like is otherwise synonymous with what dogs show their masters.

He is not the only person that understands it this way, either. It is a very easy and very lazy and fundamentally worthless way of valuing loyalty, and as such it is very useful to the people who tend to line up behind Trump and figures like him—the little authoritarians who see or want to see themselves as sitting naturally atop an important hierarchy, who very deeply believe themselves to be owed things that they don’t really feel like they owe anyone else, and who also do not appreciate being smarted-off to by their lessers.
Read the whole etc.

Let's see how that international relations thing is going.

Trump brings up 1812 with Trudeau - CBC News

But more seriously: Now we get to watch what a severe narcissist does when told 'no'. Of course, telling a severe narcissist 'yes' will just mark you as a 'pussy' and then the narc will want more.

This is our world now.
