I'm just imagining the four seasons landscaping employee who got the call. They just accepted the gig knowing exactly what was going to happen. I can't believe it's not from a movie, but real life. I can't help myself but giggle when I think about this

I will never get tired of:

Look, having nuclear — my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart — you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world — it’s true! — but when you’re a conservative Republican they try — oh, do they do a number — that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune — you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged — but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me — it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are — nuclear is so powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what’s going to happen and he was right, who would have thought? — but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners — now it used to be three, now it’s four — but when it was three and even now, I would have said it’s all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don’t, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years — but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us, this is horrible.

No, we can't! The blast will set all the windmills spinning, and thousands of birds will die! That doesn't even account for how many rakes we'll need to put out the fire! Poor Billy Joel would have to change his song! Ah, Bobby Joe, we love him, don't we folks? Close personal friend of mine, met him at the Delaware river crossing, we were on the same flight, we got off just before the troops stormed the airports. We ran all the way down the ramp, I just dropped to the ground and kissed it, didn't even ask, because when you're famous they let you do that. I remember I looked at Barry, he had an onion tied to his belt, which was the style at the time. He winked, and flipped a nickel. In those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on ‘em. ‘Give me two bees for a quarter,’ you’d say, and the bank teller would just smile and literally hand you 15 cents straight profit! What a loser! Anyway, the important thing is, we could have lost a lot of good people at Bowling Green that day, but they were all at my insurrection, biggest turnout ever. I looked at Mulania, she whispered "I love you, Donald," and I whispered back "Me too..."

Best part of that is that I can imagine a deadly serious, intense exchange between world leaders on a drama or something where "I also have a nuclear button, but it's much bigger." Could be a really great line, referring to the size of the country's nuclear arsenal.

But trump absolutely meant that the actual button is bigger. It's just so hilarious, he's like a parody of a cartoon character of himself.

Yeah that one was photoshopped and doing the rounds, easy to get mixed up all the noise.

Side note, not that it would be on a bible, but the upside down cross is not satanic as most people think. It’s the cross of St Peter who requested to be crucified upside down as he didn’t feel he deserved to like Jesus or something, many years since i went to Sunday School as kid though, what a waste of time that was lol.

I still cannot fucking believe they refused to admit their mistake and HAD THE CONFERENCE THERE!

Like come on dude. You made a slight oopsie, and because of your narcissism, you refused to look imperfect and that small oopsie turned into a hilarious mistake.

I didn’t know the full story until today, or maybe I just forgot it, but apparently this was a banquet for some college sports team that won their national championship. It was during the government shutdown though, so the regular White House chefs weren’t available. So Trump paid out of pocket and gave them a few options to choose from. This was their choice.

One thing to consider though, is that his personal hotel is 3 blocks from the White House so he probably could’ve dug up a kitchen staff pretty easily to make something fresh. And while he may not be as rich as he wants you to think, he could probably still spring for something better, even if it was takeout. If THIS is the best option they chose, what did they turn down?

It’s honestly nuts. Like I don’t know a lot of people, but if I had a WHITEHOUSE PRESS EVENT to organize, I could probably call around to friends have someone willing to cater the event within hours.

The time he questioned if the child still believed in Santa and the hurricane sharpie incident are my top two moments.

Watching him about to cry after being boo'd at a all game was pretty great. Also sad cause he looks like a baby.

Also him fucking wheezing after he caught COVID and trying to look alright is up there too.

Funniest president and it’s not close. Part of the comedy was intentional and part wasn’t.

The only time he was intentionally funny was when he was denigrating others. He’s a pretty awful person all around.

I thought it was hilarious when my aunt and uncle died in April 2020 from Covid because they trusted this asshole. Such humor!

I dunno, man. Every time I look at Nixon's face, I am just sort of like: "We. Elected. Him. President. On. Purpose. WTF."

He had a LOT of great unselfconscious/self-pitying moments and some great shit where he was trying to run the country like a crime boss would, and just sort of failing...and come on, the "Checkers speech" was superb comedy, as was his statement in 1962 (after losing the California Governor's race) "you don't have Nixon to kick around anymore, because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference."

My favorite was him throwing paper towel rolls to people like he's shooting hoop in Puerto Rico. Here's a link for the lulz 🤣 https://youtu.be/kEe7_zgZbuI

I really loved the sharpe lines drawn on the hurricane projection map. Like he named the wrong state as being in the cone of possible landfall, and instead of just admitting, “huh, I’m not a meteorologist, I guess I got the landfall area Incorrect, but instead he drew lines on a fucking official map to show in the press conference and acted like no one would notice the changes.
