    Ah. My bad, I took it for a comment, not the running gag. Carry on.
    Check back in in about 24 hours, we may have run out of jokes by then, but then again, this is such a golden opportunity...

    But, on an actually serious note: Has a president ever come into office in such a damaged state? GW Bush had issues due to the 200 elections, but at least he had his entire caucus on his side. I really get the sense that a good number of Republicans would desert Trump very quickly given a truly good reason (and if the Russia allegations prove to have legs, that could be such a reason). I'm almost inclined to go back to my original projection that he'll face impeachment proceedings before his term is over (and before anyone comes in to note that won't happen due to Republicans controlling the House and Senate, I am taking that into account, and saying that his own party might well throw him under the bus if he becomes toxic enough).

    This scandal is a real loo loo. I doubt he can eliminate the stain this will leave on his election. But if pictures of Putin are any indicator, perhaps he'll see a man about a horse.

    Bush the Younger also came in to office with a positive approval rating. Benedict Donald is the first incoming president with a negative approval rating as long as there have been approval rating polls taken for incoming presidents.

    Some days, it really does feel like we're living through one of those "The factors leading up to..." paragraphs that precedes some major world event.

    I guess Trump really is a fan of Reagan's economic policy.
    Hop on in, this rabbit hole is deep.

    Durbin is an asshat. How about you get one single verifiable fact before you call this troubling....douchebag.

    That and a healthy dose of Stewart's comedic timing and direction (lampooning both sides of an issue). The current model relies more heavily on insult humor* and kissing ass to the SJW crowd.


    * Not say that Stewart didn't use the same tools, however they were but one set in his comedy toolbox. Trevor only seems to able to employ insult humor... which I find unfunny in general.
    The same can be said of John Oliver. He's no Stephen Colbert. Some of his rants are interesting, clever, funny and sometimes even informative, but mostly consist of insult-humour. And every so often he seems to go off the deep end into pure, vicious, ranting.

    I miss the Colbert Report
    If you ever have to argue climate science with an idiot:

    "And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath came, and the time came for the dead to be judged, and the time to reward Your bond-servants the prophets and the saints and those who fear Your name, the small and the great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth."
    ~ Revelations 11:18.

    Who would have guessed how accurate Hillary's "Trumped Up Trickle Down" catchphrase would be?

    He's not. But he's President.
    Damn straight, I own the hell out of President Trump. He's so American, it hurts.

    It really, really hurts.

    He tried to deflect by saying that he's a germophobe, but if I'm not mistaken urine is actually very antiseptic and free of contaminants.
    The alleged incident said he just got off watching hookers pee on each other anyway.

    Whatever. If the brief is true - and I'm still skeptical - that's hardly the most troubling part of it, really
