Recapping “Grab’em by the Pussy” Anniversary weekend

Raise your hand if you thought that Steve Bannon calling it “Billy Bush Weekend” was utterly charming. Poor Donald, pulled into that dastardly Billy Bush’s excursion to Pleasure Island. (Oh, where was Jiminy Cricket when Donald needed him?)

For some reason, that’s not quite how the rest of us saw it. But not to fear, the so-called “failing New York Times” has been keeping track of examples of the fine and distinguished behavior of Donald Trump in A Republican’s Guide to Presidential Ettiquette.

Some examples from a very long list:

Criticize victims of that hurricane still living without drinking water or electricity by saying they “want everything to be done for them

During a visit to some of those victims, throw rolls of paper towels at them and tell them they should be “very proud” that only 16 people have died so far, unlike in a “real catastrophe”

Attack a senator battling terminal cancer

Pick nominees to the federal bench who call a sitting Supreme Court justice a “judicial prostitute” and refer to transgender children as part of “Satan’s plan”

Campaign hard for a Senate candidate; then when he appears likely to lose, say “I might have made a mistake” and later delete your tweets supporting him

Behave so erratically and irresponsibly that senators of your own party resort to saying you’re treated like an adult day-care student to keep you from starting World War III

And that’s in just the last week.

Poor Donald, he gets blamed for everything he does.

*******************************

And now, the next Despacito. This is from Lin-Manuel Miranda, the Hamilton guy, in this Reggaeton mashup of Maria from West Side Story and Puerto Rico.

Makes me want to dance.

As for me, I had a tremendous weekend. I went dancing for the first time in <number redacted> years. Wore my stilettos. Danced with Jonathan, never met him before… and never will again! Fun anyway. Woot!

I ain’t dead yet.

  1. Anybody wondering the timing of Weinstein’s expose’ coming out at the pussy grabbing anniversary…

    • Im shocked, SHOCKED you would imply that Harvey Weinstein’s well deserved fall from grace was timed to detract from Billy Bush Weekend, aka Grab’em by the Pussy Weekend.

      Maybe if we wish really hard, Donald will be swallowed by a whale.

      • LOL, I am a little surprised they didn’t have this ready last year. You know, blame Hillary for shaking hands with every one of these mfers and then elect one of them. 2016 in a nutshell, give the fucking morons something to say true or not, rational or not, ‘she did it too’ and of course, EMAILS!

  2. They attacked her on all platforms but she still got more popular vote. Fuck electoral college. Someone else said we will see more and more of such scenarios, as in popular candidate losing the elections and I agree. It is happening at the local/state levels too because of gerrymandering. I think the senate and house votes for Democrats are collectively more than the Republicans, yet they don’t have majority.

  3. When people on TV talk about Weistein’s NDAs and sexual assaults, they should also cite the person sitting in the WH. People actually voted for this guy to lead the country despite all that whereas Weinstein is getting his just comeuppance.
