The Gun’s Not Loaded!

Has anyone seen Semi-Pro? Well if not, do yourself a favor, because despite being overtly cheesy, the R-rating and accompanying profanity make it one of the most underrated Will Ferrel movies in history. One of the more memorable scenes finds everyone playing poker and while I won't recount what leads up to it (you can click and watch the whole scene for yourself), it culminates in this:   If you were ta

  1. can anyone explain to me how/why trump takes all this as a compliment to him, that he alone carries the weight of the world…. rough morning and I am now out of popcorn.

  2. Fantastic clip. It really was like imagining what it must be like sitting inside the White House, except with a black person at the table.

    1. hmmm, seems like a strange, maybe sly comment so I am not real sure what is your intent – or are you too chicken to say it straight out? If you think trump would not fit into that vulgar nasty little group, you are wrong, those ARE his people. I will just leave it there. If I am reading you wrong, feel free to correct me or explain – I mean no harm.

      1. Same here. Never saw that movie but felt that it really captures the Trump-Mnuchin dynamic over jawboning the $ and having no clue about the consequences. I was also just making a dumb joke that Trump only has a few token black people in his circle, but none of them in any sort of meaningful role (except maybe to be ridiculed and accidentally shot).

        1. valid point on missing black people – well, other than that ridiculous Ben Carson, who I cannot imagine anyone being proud to have him represent them! So much evidence of trump’s racist attitudes that are so much a part of his soul that he cannot even understand they are racist beliefs and behaviors! Yep, the least racist person we will ever know, he says! clueless twit.

          I tell you who impresses me right now – Democrat Cory Booker. I think he is really smart – Yale Law School, former mayor Newark, age 49 perfect!

          Ok, check this out —

          Published Nov 2016, after he won the election and these people were likely to work under him — 10 names and faces – how many have you seen there so far? Even that lunatic Omarosa was a flash in the pan and I really don’t know what she was doing there!

          1. Yeah — I’m familiar with Booker since I live in Philly. He’s great. Don’t know anyone on that Trump list except nutty Omarosa who was thrown out. I’ll never understand how minority people can support Trump — it’s the one thing more mystifying than why any poor people support him.
