Tomi,

Guess the Stable Genius was wrong, Samsung is not to blame.

Classic Trump tactic.

Make the press run after a different target while he gets away with robbing the bank. Again.

And the press is stupid enough to fall for it every time! :D

Hi everybody

(Winter, gr8 link to article about the background of what led to this shutdown and current CR madness and disfunction on Capitol Hill).

So this is exactly like it was back in the days of the campaign. Every day, something new and weird.

So Davos. Boos etc. His fake news is not going over well there. The dollar thing, his spokespeople are walking back Mnunchkin's nonsense. And while Trumpster having his presser bragging about how tremendous his economy is, the news broke that the GDP is worse than thought, and the year ends up with GDP growth worse than Obama and about half of what Trump promised.

So far so good, for the 'businessman' economy president, yes.

And back at the home front? Mueller gossip now suggests he's close to catching Trump on the obstruction of justice part, and in the next few weeks, when Trump apparently would go under oath - he'll get destroyed in that interview. That might be a little ouch there.

BUT for a Potus already accused of obstructing justice - the leakers out of the White House saying that Trump is attempting (again) to get Mueller fired. And the internal strife about this is wrecking the White House staff, as most see it is a suicidal move (I bet EVERYONE is writing memos and storing those at home, 'just in case' haha).

That sounds about par for the course, for one day in the wacky world of Trumpistan. Wait. Talking of the 'stans' how about Putinistan? And Iranistan? And the anti-Kurdistan? And Syriastan? Did you notice that Trump's best buddy Putin is setting up a political alliance in the middle east. This is really not looking good. Putin + Assad + Iran (that would be a BIG OUCH) and drawing in, yes, NATO-ally Turkey into that club. Ouch indeed!

PUTIN is playing this SO SO SO smartly. Trump? Got played. And US interests in the region, gosh, Iran to get not just Russian but now Turkish support? Yeah. This is the kind of 'winning' that we will indeed feel we have too much of the 'winning'.

PS there is a kind of silver lining to Trump

(WTF Tomi?)

I AM being inspired to do tons of comedy now, and clearly he is inspiring me to write new lyrics to old songs. I'll do a few for you here for your enjoyment, that I also put on Twitter.

Tomi Ahonen :-)

So as the Shutdown was starting (this song now obsolete, but you get my vibes) lets start with Frank Sinatra, and his signature song, New York, New York

Donald Trump sings New York, New York

Start spreading fake news, It's starting today
I want to be a part of it - shutdown, shutdown
Those Senator fools, are longing to stray
I’ll have no part of it! Shutdown, shutdown!

I want to wake up in a city, that doesn't work
And find I'm fool of the hill - the small-handed jerk

Our Democrat foes, are blamed from today
I'm gonna make a massive mess of it - with this shutdown!
If I can fake it here, I'll con them anywhere
It's up to us - shutdown, shutdown!


Original lyrics from Frank Sinatra’s song,
rewritten by THE SEVENTH STEVE (Trump’s
worst nightmare) aka HatRat aka the T Dawg

Then another song, how about Bing Cosby's I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas?

First, a voter in a gerrymandered red district sings White Christmas:

I'm dreaming of a sane POTUS
The way Obama used to be
Where reporters listen
Including Wolf Blitzer
To hear long answers factually

Then a Stable Genius in a white house, sings White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white courtroom
With racist pardons that I write
May your testimony be merry and bright
And may your jury members all be white

Next a p*ssygrabber sings White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white escort
Just like the ones I used to know
Where Slovenians glisten
And Ivanka listens
To hear the pornstar moaning low

And finally a big man with small hands but a big button, sings White Christmas

I'm dreaming of an inbound missile
With every taunting Tweet I write
May Korean explosions be bright
And may Hawaii’an fallout dust be white

Tomi Ahonen :-)

And lets do one more. How about the Coca Cola song, I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing (by the New Seekers)

I’D LIKE TO TEACH
(The Coca Cola Song)

I'd like to build the world a wall
And furnish it with Trump
Grow Applebees and MAGA trees
And drain that turtle swamp

I'd like to teach the world to spank
In pornstar ecstasy
I’d like to give it firearms
Sold by my company

I'd like to see the world for once
All staring at small hands
and call me ‘stable genius’
Fake news throughout the land

..It’s the MAGA thing..

Orig lyrics from New Seekers’ I’d Like To
Teach (The World to Sing) reworded by
The Seventh Steve / T Dawg / HatRat

Enjoy (I'm at least having fun mocking him..)

Tomi Ahonen :-)

Yeah, but it is such a low bar Tomi. A two year old could mock Trump and do a creditable job of it.

Wayneborean


Bit keep it up! Even better run a contest to be adjudicated by the Seventh Steve.

ピコ太郎

No comment on Trump speech??

Tomi T Ahonen

Hi ピコ太郎

No comment haha. I couldn't stomach listening to the Liar-in-Chief. I think this was the first SOTU speech I have missed since 1984 covering Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, Bush 2 and Obama, all SOTU speeches...

Tomi Ahonen :-)

ピコ太郎

I study liars. I've never seen one like Donald Trump.

Interesting reading

So after all it was Cambridge Analytica vs Narwhal and not Orca vs Narwhal.

or maybe hijacked/hacked Facebook vs Narwhal.
