Exactly a month after the flu, I got a stomach virus that I’m currently recovering from. Vomit was coming out of both ends, with the front end being a little worse. During a couple of the 6 or 7 rounds of vomiting every 20 minutes out of the front end, it got pretty violent and I burst the small blood vessels around my eyes, only the second time that’s ever happened to me I think. In between all the activity, I started watching The Leftovers again. Funny thing is, the dog shooter, played by Michael Gaston, disappeared from the show immediately after I wrote that post about him. He was out the entire season 2 and reappeared briefly at the beginning of season 3. The show is still only OK to me, just good enough to continue watching, but the characters make some frustratingly stupid choices and it’s obvious the show is going to be open-ended.
Speaking of Michael Gaston and the left going low, nothing’s changed in the past month. Probably the highest profile incident of going low was Stephen Colbert saying Trump’s mouth is a cockholster for Putin:
Certainly a homophobic remark if you subscribe to the left’s definition of homophobic and it makes you wonder what would have happened to someone saying Obama’s or Hillary Clinton’s mouth is a cockholster. Colbert was obviously doing it for ratings and it worked according to the latest news reports.
Another example is Martha Stewart giving the bird to Trump:
Like with Gaston, this is nothing new, and social media has been littered with people giving the finger to all things Trump since well before the election. Convicted felon Stewart is just getting her name in the news again.
And here’s intellectual Bill Maher joking of incest between Donald and Ivanka Trump:
Meanwhile, NewsDay claims that Americans are tired of fighting and believes a return to some semblance of normalcy is coming soon. Fat chance and the article even references Bill Maher (who envisions Ivanka giving Donald a handjob) as an example of this peaceful tranquility in our lives.
While off-topic, I found this article amusing. Apparently Politico believes Chris Murphy is presidential material because he retweeted the photo of that dead Syrian boy on the beach. They have a rather lengthy article about it. I got some news for you, Politico. Your header image of the article shows why he will not even be a presidential candidate for the Democratic party – not only is he male (GASP), or at least appears that he is self-identifying as male, but he’s also…oh my God, Lord have mercy…white. They better change his wiki photo quick, because it’s even whiter and maler:
The only realistic names I’ve heard for presidential candidates for 2020 on the Democratic side are Oprah Winfrey and Maxine Waters.
As for Trump firing Comey, which happened about an hour ago and has rattled everyone’s cages, I don’t know what took him this long.
