re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

There are exactly two kinds of food in the world. Big Mac and caviar.

Inso0,

How about some decent BBQ or something? Wtf? No one over 8 years old (mentally) would prefer McD's to that. How about supporting a local small business person?

When you invite people to your house do you serve ff?

Are you guys really that oblivious to how ridiculous you appear to normal people?

Gtfo already. No one cares what pieces of garbage line you think.

Inso0 even coming up with this statement is a dead giveaway he didn't go to college and has no idea what it's like.

To Inso0's point, I would also be against it if Trump served endangered condor egg salad sandwiches and set up one of those tables where you eat the monkey brains out of the top of the monkey's head while it is still alive. It's because of my Trump derangement syndrome.

Lol California. The opposite of this is more true. There are millions of people that would prefer McDonalds to decent BBQ, but it generally takes a few years of conditioning to get to that point.

Ah but McDonald's is 84% franchises so supporting McDonald's is supporting small business people.

Top Keeeeedery there.

If he killed a hooker and his trousers fell down during his getaway you'd try claiming it as a win if anyone reported on his partial nudity.

If he could manipulate you folks to focus on his partial nudity rather than the murder (which is what you're doing now) then of course it would be a win.

He did, DUCY?

While the oldest child in the family, I am not as old as you, so I haven't inherited host duties for most functions yet. When I do, it's usually something akin to a Ron Swanson spread.

You got me there. I skipped the traditional college track and went back for a degree in my late 20s. Only $65k to go before that baby is paid off. #BernieBro2020

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Good article on the district court's 277-page decision striking down the addition of citizenship question to the census.

Federal Judge Obliterates Trump’s Census Shenanigans and Dares the Supreme Court to Reverse Him

Quote:
Sixth, and most importantly, “the evidence is clear that Secretary Ross’s rationale was pretextual.” Under the APA, a federal agency must clearly “disclose the basis” for its decisions. But “the real reason” for Ross’ decision “was something other than the sole reason he put forward.” Courts “have not hesitated to find that reliance on a pretextual justification violates the APA.” And here, Ross “decided to add the question for reasons entirely unrelated to VRA enforcement well before he persuaded DOJ to make its request.” He and his aides also “sought to conceal aspects of the process” and overruled “near uniform opposition” from experts. Ross’ pretextual falsehoods render the citizenship question unlawful.
As experience under Trump has amply demonstrated, good judges are a bulwark against irrational, corrupt government. That's one reason conservatives fight so hard against them--good judges don't let them enact irrational policies.

Preventing rational evaluation of executive decisions inspired by religious ideology and white supremacy [or, in the case of Trump, religious ideology, white supremacy, stupidity, and corruption] is one of the leading motivations behind the "unitary executive" approach to presidential power embraced by conservative jurists.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I make jokes here, but President Donald Trump treating the Clepmson players to a state dinner of Quarter Pounders is legitimately hilarious. The sort of wonder that was literally unimaginable just a short time ago and something should bring us all together as a country. It makes me legitimately sad that there are people so depraved and ill that they can't take pleasure in all this.

Does anyone know what Keeeed was saying back when Chaney shot some dude in the face? Braying about how it took the focus of the debacle in Iraq?

All the McDonalds feast shows is that we are much farther along the Idiocracy timeline than we thought. Imagine waking from a 5 year coma to Donald Trump treating people to McDonald's feasts in the WH. You literally wouldn't think you had actually woken up.

I believe I'm actually on record supporting the idea of those programs, but not the waste involved.

I suckled at the teat of government for a year, I'm not a full blown hypocrite. I was just as annoyed when my wife would bring home a 15th jar of Peanut Butter or whatever we weren't using on WIC as I am when thousands of pounds of "free" breakfast gets tossed because the kids only took it for the muffin included. We'd at least turn around and re-donate the extra to our food pantry instead of throwing it away.

I hope some journalists have google alerts set up for "wakes from X-year-long coma" type stuff, could be an excellent interview series. I mean, even on its own, I suppose, but the President DEALZ factor could nudge it into Pulitzer stuff.

What is actually ridiculous and unforgivable (ban?) is comparing Big Macs to real cheeseburgers.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Glad we have zero difference now between "hey wanna grab lunch" with staffers and not formal at all and "hey a bunch of people are coming over and we're all gonna wear suits and oh here's mcdonalds"

Like if you invited people over and it was some huge thing you'd serve them fast food?

Last year Alabama didn't go till spring also but whatever. Trump is just gonna do whatever he wants and they're all just gonna snap defend it.

Obama wore a tan suit and the right lost their minds at how terrible that was for the high class of being president of the united states, and none of them give a **** about all this fast food in the white house. They're just massive *******s and they don't care.
