Quote of the Day
"Trump is every trend in Republican politics over the past thirty-five years taken to its logical conclusion. He is the Republican id, finally entirely unleashed from all restraint and all reality."
-- Johann Hari, in a superb piece in the Independent
Despite the fusillade of jokes at Trump's expense released last night at the White House Correspondent's Dinner -- with Obama's insouciant mocking of him and Seth Meyers non-stop shots drawing icy stares from Trump himself -- the above quote for some reason really sums up the big-picture view of this douchebag's ascendancy.
Still, Trump's reaction to the beating he took last night is laughably ironic and worth circulating far and wide:
"I had no idea it would be to that extent, where you know, it was just joke after joke after joke. It was almost like, is there anyone else they could talk about? ... (The whole thing was) inappropriate in certain respects."
And his thoughts on Seth Meyers?
Wait for it...
"His delivery was not good. He’s a stutterer and he really was having a hard time."
Aw, did the little baby get his feelings hurt?
