Piers Morgan Can’t Stop Tweeting This Picture of Him Eating Donald Trump’s Ass

February 2, 2018 Admin3915 0

It’s a nice picture. Screenshot: YouTube /BBCTwo Bless Pier Morgan’s heart, but the man appears to be terribly fixated on Donald Trump’s tangerine hole. I believe we can infer this from an image Morgan has repeatedly tweeted today of Donald Trump kneeling on a chair, pants down, with Morgan leaning in, wearing Trump’s cheeks like the Drunk Elephant Babyfacial I spent $80 on. To be fair to Morgan, he could merely be sniffing. Perhaps he is gently resting the tip of his nose on Trump’s rectum. Maybe he read up on colonoscopies and is double checking the White House doctor’s work. Any way you look at it that is clearly a picture of Piers Morgan with his face pressed firmly to Donald Trump’s ass and READ MORE

Donald Trump Jr. Just Became a Dank Meme, Literally

February 2, 2018 Admin3915 0

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted out a typo Friday that could not have been better designed to go viral online. Criticizing the media for its coverage of the GOP memo on the FBI written by Rep. Devin Nunes, the younger Trump attempted to refer to the Washington Post slogan “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” mangling it in two ways. First, he called it a byline — actually, the word for the author’s name on a piece — and then he mistyped darkness. Dankness, which used to refer to cold and damp places, was later adopted by pot smokers to describe high-quality marijuana and then became an ironic term for viral jokes online that are past their prime. In 2016, “dank memes” about the presidential candidates became something READ MORE

Super Bowl Ads: Donald Trump Cloud, “Nobody Asked You,” And Even More Celebrities

February 2, 2018 Admin3915 0

After a contentious football season in which the President of the United States urged NFL owners to fire any national anthem knee-taking “son of a bitch” on the field, and took credit for the 10% dive in regular-season ratings, advertisers coughing up more than $5M per 30-seconds for a spot in Sunday’s Super Bowl, are understandably steering clear of politics, except maybe to play to POTUS and his base. WeatherTech, for instance, is returning for a fifth Super Bowl in an ad squarely focused on making its products in America, but in which some ad-industry pundits have reported they see a soupcon of wall-building metaphor: Last year, TV news outlets spent the morning after Super Bowl Sunday documenting the outrage of Trump supporters over all READ MORE

I worked at Carrier. I was betrayed by Donald Trump

February 2, 2018 Admin3915 0

During the 2016 election, I went out in the rain to vote for Donald Trump. I believed him when he pledged to stop outsourcing and put working people first. I was heartened when he promised, on election night, to defend the “forgotten men and women of our country.” Most of all, I believed him when he said he’d save my job at the Carrier plant in Indianapolis. Last month, despite Trump’s promise, Carrier laid off another 215 employees and shifted their work to Mexico. I lost my job. As a result, I’m losing my health insurance, my retirement benefits and quite possibly my home. Now, more than anything, I want Donald Trump to remember me. I feel betrayed, angry and forgotten — and I’m not READ MORE

The Nunes Memo Is a Big Win for Donald Trump

President Donald Trump departs the White House Feb. 2, 2018 in Washington, D.C. Win McNamee/Getty Images The Devin Nunes memo is, as was widely expected, a dud . It reveals nothing new, and answers none of the crucial questions raised by former law enforcement officials who have said there is nothing in this report that warrants its release. Indeed, in an opening missive that truly puts the “cover” in cover letter, White House counsel Don McGahn doesn’t even bother to respond to the arguments put forth by the Justice Department, which strongly urged that the memo not be released and cautioned that it would be “extraordinarily reckless ” to do so without first giving the DOJ and FBI the opportunity to review it. The FBI READ MORE
