If you love your country, you must be willing to defend it from fraud, bigotry and recklessness — even from a President. –Dr. DaShanne Stokes, author & sociologist

Tomorrow, August 11, is PRESIDENTIAL JOKE DAY (but then, isn’t every day?). The joke has been on us since the November election, though pundits continue to poke pitchforks at America’s joke of a President (to no apparent effect). The point is this: such a President only comes along once in a very long lifetime (thank the Lord). Therefore, with dark days looming ahead, it is incumbent upon us to hang in there, to make hay while the sun shines/while the birdies sing. Are you ready?

Let’s all sing like the birdies sing
Tweet! Tweet! Tweet! Tweet! Tweet!

Let’s face it, friends: the President may be a joke, but it goes without tweeting that he has become a very tiresome joke — and if there’s one thing I can’t stand….

Well, fellow losers, it seems like we’re going to be Singin’ in the Rain ’til the bitter end of his reign, so we might as well Send in the Clowns and make the best of the imposter (or is it Send in the Imposters and make the best of the Clown?):

    That first cartoon is OLD!! 🙂

    I agree with the blond woman – I can’t stand him. (I say it like she does, too)

    I see your barbershop quartet is Canadian – good stuff! We just went to a concert a couple of weeks ago to hear four of our friends singing in one – they’ve been at it for years.

    What can anyone say about the tweeter-in-chief, Mr. Muse? Then again, as my mother used to say, “You might as well laugh as cry!”

    Actually, Carmen, that cartoon is the same age as Donald — Donald the Duck (both created in 1934). Donald the Trump is younger, but just as cartoonish.

    I have long loved barbershop quartets — even ‘one man’ barbershop quartets such as this, which I present to you as a special treat (for obvious reasons):

      Well, that was just fantastic! I had never heard of that guy – I wonder if he really was made in Hawaii? 😉 (We’re headed there in October – a 40th wedding Anniversary celebration).

      You probably already know that the song is the unofficial anthem here. . . 🙂 It would be difficult to find someone who doesn’t know the words to the whole thing. Thanks so much! Just what I needed before I babysit the three-year-old (active!) grandson who’s coming for the morning.

        I’m very glad you enjoyed the clip, Carmen, and I wish you a safe and happy trip when you temporarily bid “Farewell to Nova Scotia” in October. My wife and I have been to Hawaii (the Big Island) and thought it was paradise (we will celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary in September).

        P.S. I’ll look forward to at least one post (hint, hint) on your blog about your tryst in Hawaii. 🙂


      • Carmen says:

        I don’t know how much of a tryst it’ll be, as we are meeting two of our daughters and their partners and kids there – we’ve already told them we’ll do the babysitting and they can go out at night (we’re boring as all get out). But I will try to fill you in on the important details. . . 🙂

    I was interested to learn that to people in the UK, we have elected “President Fart.”

  4. I saw an interesting interview where a commentator warned that Pence might be worse – the same repressive ideology but a lot more effective at implementation. If sanity can reclaim the legislature from the hypocrites next November, it may make sense to wait Trump out. (As long as he doesn’t kill too many people and wreck the planet before then). Ugh. If you think about it, the joke in the Whitehouse is pretty scary.

    I wish this administration weren’t such a joke.

    Silver lining department–we’ll save a lot of taxpayer money when the Trump Presidential Library is built. You can fit a shit-ton of one-page memos in just one recycle bin.

    That “can’t stand him” always makes me laugh when I watch the movie 🙂

    That line was spoken (over and over) by Jean Hagen, who played Gene Kelly’s silent-screen costar in the movie. Film critic Leonard Maltin called her acting in SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN “the performance of a lifetime.”

    Thanks for all three Trump-escapes. I still marvel at cartoons draw by hand.
