You are applying way too much rationality and sound logic to the whole situation.

First, good catch on "Roberto", though your counter-point proves my point. Of course we'd start from a base of owning the series, but to me, its more important to own original animation art than to know all of the character's names. I'm sure that you'd feel differently. There is no *objective* definition of the Democrat party that would exclude a pro-lifer or someone who hates the EPA. They're just outliers. Anyways, just a thought.

Yeah, the only good bits on SNL these days are Alec Baldwin playing Trump.

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

His tweets are all shit and the SNL ones come off particularly bad, but could there be more to it? His stupid Apprentice show, which really is bad television, is also on NBC, right? Maybe he has a larger internal beef with the people at the network.

Norm MacDonald got fired for telling OJ jokes because someone at NBC was still a buddy with OJ.

Do you tweet about it though? Is it worth your time?

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

These juvenile tweets tell me more than just Trump has thin skin. It tells me he's not listening to any advisors any more and he just does whatever he thinks of at the moment. That's the most concerning thing. Are even his most ardent supporters supportive of his incessant tweeting?

I doubt he has advisers, if he did I'm sure he fired them all or they quit on him.

He posts more frequently than strippers that call themselves models showing skin at rap concerts while bouncing on dicks like pogo sticks.

One aspect of this is distraction. As long as we're talking about stupid SNL Tweets, we're not talking about his scandals or stupid policy positions.

Yep. Nothing but yes men and women who'll go on TV and justify every insane thing that comes out of our new President's mouth. Get ready for 8 years of nonsense just like this.

Yes, as he does Russia's bidding. He just praised Brexit and said NATO was obsolete. Weak Europe and a weak NATO are music to Putin's ears.

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

I thought his handlers took his Tweet privileges away. Obviously he has multiple accounts and needs to contact an administrator.


Also, the tweets about SNL likely improve his image amongst his constituency, while continuing to enforce his message that the liberal media is biased and not to be trusted. Sad!

much worse - just look at Syria (red line), Crimea, Ukraine and the build-up of Russian nukes. Not good! Was this the leaker of Fake News?
How fucking stupid can he get? If the CIA ever uncovers that Russian piss video, you can bet they'll upload it straight to YouTube and send copies to every news agency in America.

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

I haven't watched SNL in ages. But the Trump bits are fucking hysterical. And that UFO one from last year (or maybe the year before) was also really funny.

For Reference:



At this point, Alec Baldwin is doing a public service with these bits.

I can see that. I remember the report that he was offering potential VP candidates that they would be the most powerful VP in history. So is he acting as the shiny object for everyone, enjoying the attention, while Pence is behind the scenes doing what he wants to do? Part of me thinks this could be the case, but as Trump i

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

Here comes Trump
The man with the thin skin
Don't say a damn word
Or he'll plan to tweet again.
A man of no substance
Who enjoys his fair share of sustenance
Riding the golden elevator to the top
Doing what he wants with no consequence
Lack of confidence consequently means nothing
The people simply believe him even though he is bluffing
The puppet master is here
Controlling all of his little Trumpeteers
While the rest of us grit our teeth and vent
Standing on the sidelines, shrugging our shoulders
Saying, "Can you believe this shit?"

Trump strikes me as the kind of leader who would surround himself with groveling yes-men rather than knowledgable advisors.
