Update: The debate is on tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET. And yes, we are blockheads. The debate is on ABC not NBC. We heard Brent Bozell discuss NBC and the debate and we assumed the debate was on NBC, though we should have known better after the CNBC debate. Still, it is difficult to find information about this debate and very little interest in it – other than from the Bernie burn-outs.
We’ll cover the debate as usual, in the comments, in a new post.
Like to hunt? Put your hunt hat on and join us. Like to laugh? Some of this might make you cry. It’s Friday and in the spirit of Donald Trump we’re going to do our best to Make America Fun Again.
Hunt hat on? Help us hunt. What are we hunting? We’re hunting for the Saturday debate. But we can’t find any tracks for Saturday nights debate.
We want to waste our Saturday night with full on coverage of the debate starring Hillary Clinton and assorted penised persons from Baltimore and Vermont. But we can’t find it. How can we cover it when we can’t find it? Help!!!!!!!!!!
We know the Saturday night debate is on Saturday night.
The debate host is NBC. Problem is NBC will not air the debate. Get our problem? There’s an NBC hosted debate but it won’t air on NBC. Easy answer: it’s on MSNBC, the sewer sister station for NBC. Problem: the Saturday night debate is not on MSNBC either. MSNBC will feature it’s usual weekend lineup of shows focused on men in prison. No debate. So NBC hosts a debate but will not air the debate and MSNBC is busy with reruns of a show few watch when it first airs. Where can we watch the fu*king debate?????
We hear it’s on Youtube. Yeah. Youtube!!! We don’t kid. We don’t jest. Youtube!!! Youtube!!!! We might be the only viewers. Whoever thought of holding a debate on the Saturday night before Christmas and only airing it on Youtube deserves a “Make America Fun Again” prize. Why waste your time at home on a Saturday night when you can dance the night away?
Hardest hit in his staying alive quest is Saint Bernard of Vermont. He thinks the stealth debate schedule is designed to help Hillary2016. Ordinarily we would be on the side of those who want an open debate process. But after all the corruption and cheating by the DNC in 2008 designed to help Barack Obama we are under no illusion that the DNC is anything but corrupt and the latest thumb on the scales is standard operating procedure from that kook left crap house. In either case, Bernie has bigger worries:
Bernie Sanders Campaign Accessed Confidential Clinton Data
In response, the DNC has suspended the Sanders campaign from the party’s voter file — a move that could cripple the senator just weeks before the start of the primary. The Sanders campaign staffer who accessed the data has been fired.
The Democratic National Committee has suspended Bernie Sanders’ access to the party’s 50-state voter file in response to a software glitch that allowed the Sanders campaign to access Hillary Clinton’s internal voter data.
The DNC move effectively freezes Sanders’ field organizing program six weeks from the first caucuses and primaries. [snip]
The incident could pose a devastating setback for Sanders so close to the start of the Democratic primary: Until access is restored to the NGP VAN, the candidate’s organizers will have to perform the basic functions of the field program — phone banks, voter contact, visibility — without an electronic system centralizing their efforts.
We’re shedding crocodile tears for Bernie. The breach was the fault of the vendor not the Sanders’ staffer who took advantage of the open door. But now the back of the Bern has been broken. We want to help Bernie. So here’s our suggestion: Hey Bernie why don’t you try to grab some attention by denouncing Barack Obama and Big Media?
Here’s a twofer Bernie for you to denounce Obama and Big Media:
The New York Times Just Memory-Holed This Devastating Obama Admission
“Obama indicated that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino.“
Bernie could stop the whine and denounce the New York Times and Barack Obama:
If you read The New York Times‘ story on President Barack Obama‘s private meeting with news columnists Friday morning, you may have caught one quote that made the President look particularly bad:
In his meeting with the columnists, Mr. Obama indicated that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and made clear that he plans to step up his public arguments.
The President of the United States failed to understand that Americans were anxious after two major terrorist attacks in Western cities because he doesn’t watch TV? It’s an admission that opponents are sure to use to make the president seem out-of-touch at best, and unconcerned about a serious threat at worst.
Many politicos and journalists immediately saw the newsworthiness of the statement, especially after CNN’s Brian Stelter drew attention to it. [snip]
But just as the quote was beginning to make the rounds, it disappeared entirely from the the Times piece, without a correction or any indication that the piece had been updated.
Instead, the paragraph in question has been replaced with the following, which doesn’t appear to have any connection to the original paraphrase:
Saint Bernard could Make America Fun Again and get some earned media for himself with a strong denunciation of the New York Times and out of touch Barack. But Saint Bernard prefers to howl in pain. Screw him.
For real laughs, you always can rely on the GOP establishment. Paul Ryan and the GOP House and Senate have a great Christmas laugh at the expense of the American people who are in open revolt against their “leadership”. Breaking: Omnibus passes House 316-113; Update: Senate approves, 65-33. They’re doing everything to elect Trump:
It doesn’t take much leadership to push through a bill that the opposition supports and that Obama wants to sign. John Boehner could have done that. The huge expansion of H-2B visas alone should have killed this bill, especially with millions of American workers still sidelined from the Great Recession. Did anyone in Congress bother to look at the workforce participation rate lately, which is still at a 38-year low? For that matter, did any of our elected representatives think that maybe it’s a bad time to massively expand visa programs for other reasons — say, what happened in San Bernardino?
That’s a downer sure to bring tears. We have to turn to Donald Trump to Make America Fun Again. And we have to admit there is no one like The Donald to bring a smile to our faces these days.
Just this past week, Donald J. Trump made us cackle like a goose laying an egg, twice.
The first time was the Trump medical report. Early this month, Big Media was trashing Donald Trump for something Trump said (which was clearly designed to provoke Big Media into a trap). The worst journolister this election cycle is Ben Schreckinger at Politico. Schreckinger is not only a yellow journolister but an idiot as well. This is what Ben Schreckinger wrote on December 3 of this month:
Trump relents after withholding medical records
Facing questions about his age, diet and lack of workout regimen, the billionaire businessman now pledges to release his health records within two weeks.
Donald Trump says he is in good health, but voters up to now have had to take his word for it.
Trump once said that all presidential candidates should release their medical records. But so far in the 2016 race, he had declined to release his, and a campaign spokeswoman had not responded to multiple requests for comment about the candidate’s health records stretching back to October.
On Thursday, three hours after this article was published, the billionaire businessman relented, tweeting that he’ll release his records within the next two weeks. “As a presidential candidate, I have instructed my long-time doctor to issue, within two weeks, a full medical report-it will show perfection,” Trump said in the tweet.
Idiot Ben Schreckinger writes articles devoted to silly attacks against Donald Trump. This health report article was particularly stupid. It’s a long article which trashes Trump’s diet and lack of exercise, even though Trump appears highly energetic and full of vim and vigor. Then Ben Schreckinger lauded himself because Donald Trump collapsed and caved to Ben’s demands for medical records.
What a stupid little baiter Ben Schreckinger is. Trump put cheese on a trap. Ben chewed on the trap. Ben says “what a bright boy I am.” Ben Schreckinger got Trumped and Trump made America fun again. Trump’s collapse and cave on his medical records was conceived and executed as a well crafted trap from the first. Then Trump released his medical report which Makes America Fun Again:
Washington (CNN)Donald Trump on Monday released a letter from his physician stating that the 69-year-old Republican presidential candidate’s latest medical examination “showed only positive results.”
Trump’s physician of 25 years, Dr. Harold Bornstein, said Trump “has had no significant medical problems” and called the candidate’s blood pressure and lab results “astonishingly excellent” in a signed statement Trump released publicly on Monday.
“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” Bornstein, an internal medicine and gastroenterology specialist who works at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, wrote in the letter dated December 4.
Trump declared he would not release his medical records. Big Media went nuts. Donald Trump released, in superlatives, his medical records which became one of the most talked about medical records released since Jimmy Carter discussed his hemorrhoids. Trump made America fun again. Jimmy Kimmel noted the fun:
It was hilarious. The Trump Popeye muscle flexing then the doctor’s photo. Hysterical. Most of the comments from Big Media tried to present the episode as harmful to Trump. We laughed. America was fun again.
That was not the only fun moment from the Kimmel interview. There was the Suessian Trump book too:
Watch Jimmy Kimmel Read a Donald Trump Children’s ‘Book’ to Trump [snip]
Kimmel and company drew heavily on Dr. Seuss with a story following a cartoon Trump teaching two children lessons about winning and losing, at least in a capitalistic sense.
“Winners aren’t losers. They’re winners—like me!” the book opens. “A loser’s a loser. Which one will you be?”
As Kimmel reads the book, Trump cracks up with laughter repeatedly and appears to be at a rare loss for words.
The cartoon Trump introduces the kids to a dog who isn’t good at deal making and a bear who isn’t too successful. In fact, he “must feel like a loser, valet-ing that 2006 PT Cruiser!”
The appearance on the popular late night talk show comes as Trump continues to lead the polls among the GOP candidates for president.
Winners aren’t losers. And a loser brings our second Make America Fun Again Trump moment of the week as we watch Trump make faces that crack us up:
Off the edge. Winners aren’t losers. Losers can’t laugh. Let’s Make America Fun Again.
