    DON THE DISAGREEABLE (A tRump Roast for the Ages) 

    Today is the birthday of IVAN THE TERRIBLE (Aug. 25, 1530-March 28, 1584). For those of you who weren’t around back then and may not remember how terrible he was, here’s a refresher:

    Which brings us to DON THE DISAGREEABLE, aka Donald Trump. For those who believe DISAGREEABLE doesn’t begin to do justice to Don’s place in posteriority, I would’ve titled this post DON THE DOUCHEBAG or DON THE DUCK-BILLED FATTYPUSS….but then I might be accused of gratuitous name-calling, which would be odiously unbecoming of an obviously objective observer of the Pres — a worthy calling indeed, coming, as it does, from he who any follower of this blog can vouch for; (s)he who disagrees is obviously a fatuous fart-face.

    So the only fair way to do justice to Don’s legacy is to limit ignominious epithets to those names he has called others — particularly in view of the penchant he has for labeling many of them what he is himself. Examples of such may be found among this compilation of takes-one-to-know-one insults (object of insult(s) in parenthesis):

    JEFF BOZO (Jeff Bezos)
    CHEATIN’ OBAMA (Barack Obama)
    PUNCHY (Robert De Niro)
    MORNING PSYCHO (Joe Scarborough)
    SLIMEBALL (James Comey)
    WACKY AND DERANGED OMAROSA (Omarosa Manigault Newman)

    FAT JERRY (Jerry Nadler)
    LITTLE MARCO (Marco Rubio)
    POCAHONTAS/THE INDIAN (Elizabeth Warren)
    DUMMY BETO (Beto O’Rourke)
    SHIFTY SCHIFF/ADAM SCHITT (Adam Schiff)
    CUTIE PIE (Jonathan Karl)

    CRAZY/CROOKED HILLARY (Hillary Clinton)
    CRAZY/NERVOUS NANCY (Nancy Pelosi)
    CRAZY/SLEEPY JOE (Joe Biden)
    CRAZY BERNIE/BASICALLY BRAINDEAD BERNIE (Bernie Sanders)
    CRAZY ARNOLD (Arnold Schwarzenegger)
    CRAZY MEGYN (Megyn Kelly)

    As you can see, you don’t have to be CRAZY to make Trump’s wanton list….but it helps.

        Trump takes advantage of those who try to be fair, because that’s what bullies do. Biden and Harris mustn’t take any guff from Trump, but they also need to not let Trump’s insults become a distraction because that would be playing into his hands. Talk about a balancing act!

        From what I’ve read, Trump is”‘his father’s son” — or, as another old saying has it, “Like father, like son.” All I can say is that millions of American voters must like bullies.

      Ugh. I tried to watch the Republican “convention” last night and just couldn’t take all the fear-mongering. I guess I’m going to join a mob and wipe out a suburban neighborhood this winter. Or I’m going to turn my neighbor’s kids into drug-using communists. I turned it off after ten minutes. ūüôā
      Here’s to peace, kindness, and truth – may it ultimately prevail.

        Diana, if you do plan to join a mob or turn your neighbor’s kids into drub-using communists, I suggest you make a big fat donation to Trump’s re-election campaign and publicly kiss his butt. That will surely get you a Presidential pardon if you’re arrested (unless he’s not re-elected, in which case I never heard of you and you’re on your own). ūüėČ

      Al Capone went to prison for tax evasion. So maybe all is not lost if his tax returns are investigated.

        Thankfully, (as i understand it) possible tax evasion is being investigated by the State of New York. If it were a federal case, Trump’s Attorney General, Wm. Barr, would see to it that Trump gets away with it.

        Trump called Kamala Harris “nasty” almost as soon as Biden named her his VP choice, and it has indeed become one of his favorite attack words (most, if not all, of the epithets listed in my post are not as recent). As for that “x-rated” weight loss segment: please spread the word, Elizabeth, so that more people may be enticed to check out this post and my blog. ūüėČ

      Don the Despicable works for me. Glad you brought some fun to this ugliness.

      I so wish Biden would listen to Tom Friedman, who suggested Biden should agree to debate ONLY if trump releases his tax returns first AND there’s an on-site fact-checker.

        I’d especially like to see the debates contingent upon an on-site fact checker. Although Biden wouldn’t have a problem with it, but I’m sure Trump would refuse and probably call the idea part of a socialist conspiracy against him. That’s what despots like Trump do when they’re afraid of the truth.

    A WASTE OF BREADTH 

    People waste many things — time, money, talent, food (one way or another) — but I think¬†the saddest waste of all is the mind. You probably¬†do too — especially when you stop to think how¬†mindless all those¬†fools are who disagree with what you¬†think. I believe it was¬†Ivan Vasilyevich who¬†first¬†said A mind is a terrible thing to waste,¬†the wisdom of which¬†so impressed his comrads¬†that he¬†became forever¬†famous¬†as Ivan the Terrible (apparently he did not suffer fools gladly).

    So, it should be clear from the above that almost all waste can be controlled if we but set our minds to it. If you’re sitting around on your ass just¬†wasting away, there is simply¬†no excuse for it. Remember,¬†mind over matter –it’s the only¬†way to go if you want to get ahead, if you will. If you won’t, you have no one to blame but yourself.

    I hope I have¬†inspired you to get a grip and stop squandering away¬†your life, of which you have¬†but one to live, unless you¬†have faith¬†in reincarnation. Even so, there’s no telling what you might come back as — a curably¬†dying Christian Scientist, for example – so why take a chance? If you don’t believe me, perhaps you’ll listen to the testimony of these waste not, want not-ers:

    I spent 90% of my money on wine, women and song and just wasted the other 10%.¬†–Ronnie Hawkins

    A¬†day without laughter is a day wasted. –Charlie Chaplin

    The time you enjoy wasting is¬†not wasted time.¬†–Bertrand Russell

    The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life. –Muhammed Ali

    If I don’t learn something every single day, it’s a wasted day. –Leonard Lauder

    A Congressman’s idea of government waste is the¬†money spent in another Congressman’s district. -Evan Esar

    ¬†I wasted time, and now doth time waste me. –William Shakespeare

    I wish I could stand on a busy street corner, hat in hand, and beg people to throw me all their wasted hours. –Bernard Berenson

      If I had seen that quote unattributed, I wouldn’t have guessed it came from Ali. It’s good to see that he grew into that wisdom as he’s aged.
