Local Geriatric Denies He Works For Russia, Will Serve College Kids ‘Burger Kings’ And ‘Some Pizza’

"I never worked for Russia."

Donald Trump is on an insane roll with the bombast and outlandish soundbites which have come in so fast and so (literally) furious over the past 24 hours that trying to keep up with him has become an exercise in futility.

Obviously, the President is coming off a rough weekend, where “rough” means i) the New York Times revealed the existence of a 2017 FBI investigation into whether he was/is an actual Russian agent, ii) the Washington Post reported that he once seized “the notes of his own interpreter and instruct[ed] the linguist not to discuss what had transpired [in a meeting with Vladimir Putin] with other administration officials” and iii) is being subjected to incessant questions about whether it makes sense to hold the government hostage as part of a exceedingly quixotic effort to built a $5.7 billion, 2,000-mile-long invisible steel fence on the southern border to keep out Mexicans.

Predictably, Trump made things worse on Saturday evening when, in an interview with Fox’s Jeanine Pirro, he didn’t say “no” when asked, by the friendliest of friendly reporters (Pirro), whether he was in fact a Russian plant.

No Biggie, But Turns Out F.B.I. Opened A Secret Probe To See If Trump Is A Literal Russian Agent

Fast forward to Sunday evening and Trump decided it would be a good idea to brand Jeff Bezos (who, by the way, is actually rich, as opposed to Trump, who may in fact have a net worth less than zero depending on how much he owes “creditors” of ill repute), “Jeff Bozo” and lambast Elizabeth Warren for her ill-conceived “beer” video.

“If Elizabeth Warren, often referred to by me as Pocahontas, did this commercial from Bighorn or Wounded Knee instead of her kitchen, with her husband dressed in full Indian garb, it would have been a smash!”, the actual President of the United States said, before delivering the following misogynistic dog whistle to his base:

Best line in the Elizabeth Warren beer catastrophe is, to her husband, “Thank you for being here. I’m glad you’re here” It’s their house, he’s supposed to be there!

All of that is clearly crazy and it set the stage for a series of Monday remarks delivered to reporters who Trump regaled amid “the beauty and majesty” of the White House and its “snow filled lawns”, as he hilariously put it in another Sunday tweet.

Asked (again) if he is in fact working for Russia, Trump blamed the reporter – as if it’s somehow out of bounds for the media to ask questions about a real FBI investigation of a sitting US president.


Trump also told the story about the “women taped up in vans” again – this is becoming one of his “greatest” hits. Just listen to this insanity (it starts at the ~0:25 mark).


But the “best” part came when Trump announced the menu options on offer for the Clemson Tigers who, against all odds, managed to blowout the Alabama juggernaut in the CFP national championship game. For their trouble, the players will get – and this is a quote – “McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger Kings with some pizza.”


I just can’t, you guys. I just can’t.

  1. Memo to the Toddler:

    “I never worked for Russia.” “I never worked for Russia.” “I never worked for Russia.” I clicked my heels and voila!! “I never worked for Russia.”

    Okay, okay, you never worked for Russia. You are not being paid by Russia, and so you say it’s not “work.”

    Instead, you do Putin’s bidding because he is blackmailing you with documents and information relating to your money laundering, bank fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud and tax evasion which you engaged in with his Oligarchs in the years 1988 and years after when selling condo units and other real estate holdings as well evidence relating to your express conduct, conspiratorial acts and those of your family while all of you conducted your 2016 election campaign.

    And that’s not work. You are volunteering for Putin, right?

    • Marty, please promise me that “evidence relating to your express conduct” are the infamous pee pee tapes! 🙏

  2. I’m worried.
    This performance (and it is an act) is from the mind of someone who is rapidly decaying. That show was a training film for spotting incoherence.
    Are there a cadre of WH staffers who are prepared to neuter him like bureaucrats have done with so many royals of the past 6000 years?
    Perhaps it’s being done right before our eyes with the recent ineffective TV address to the nation.
    If so, it’s a start.

    No,of course he’s not a Russian agent, asset etc… being neither directly paid nor ideologically-driven (But he parses words (when it suits him). What he is is a Russian “blackmailee” – and, what we are witnessing in this case is quite diferent from being “an agent”. As someone who knew what was actually going on inside the WH said a few years ago: “Follow the money”…

    • “Follow the money”…indeed!

      Cohen’s money trail was just local payments to mistresses and prostitutes. The real money trail, was created by Trump himself, and later by Manafort. There is a reason that Tiny has commented publicly about Manafort being hard done-by; Paul has kept information from Mueller, at the cost of harder sentencing, because he thinks Tiny is going to give him a-get out-of-jail-free card.

      Not sure how that is going to work out for Paul. Did Nixon pardon anyone before he quit? Can that even be done?

  4. At the risk of oversimplification And being blabby) if you read the last three Posts by H … today it all reminds me of a Top spinning smoothly until critical velocity is lost. At that point one (central Banks ) are confronted by having to tweak the speed manually of Stop it all and pull the string again. Pulling the string is rather discernible and has Political consequences that tend to reignite the Political blame game and threaten the Systems control over literally everything (money and power) Because all governments are afflicted with a primary impulse (staying in power ) they choose the tweak method to their enigma. This process has become easier due to advances and distractions caused by social media and the like.
    Stopping the Top has other consequences primarily being that the process could mature into a situation whereby Clear Political Choices (3rd Party Candidates) are required to resolve the masses anxiety . That of course threatens the status quo.. This is not just true in the US but also elsewhere. Something I think about while watching this exiting set of events is that Trump is symptomatic of all this..

  5. I found it amusing that Trump decided his favorite foods must be Clemson player’s favorite foods.

    Saw “Active Measures” the other day……might be a preview of what we learn from Mueller.

  6. ‘Active Measures’ or possibly the classic ‘Manchurian Candidate.’

    Exhibiting characteristics of a narcissistic psychopath, Trump only works for (and pays) himself.

  7. Harvey Darrow Cotton

    There is no scenario – from Trump actually being a Russian stooge to Trump playing a Russian stooge on TV – where the Russian people are not laughing their asses off at us on a daily basis.

    • no worries — they read all the same stuff we read and what we write — they know we are laughing too and we all, the entire planet, is laughing at him!

      • The greatest fear narcissistic bullies have is being laughed at or ridiculed. So laugh on, all!

  8. Whoa! Gotta call you out on this one H. Most books had ‘Bama at -5.5. FiveThirtyEight (I just found out) only gave them a 51% chance of winning. I’m an SEC (not that SEC) guy but I knew how good Clemson is and am on record as stating that I thought that they would win. Also thought that the “over” looked good too (57 1/2). I’m not a betting guy since it actually ruins the game for me. Anyway, why gamble when I’ve got the markets – LOL.

  9. Meant to refer specifically to your “against all odds” comment.
