Since the last couple days have been so intense, I figured that it was time for some comic relief.  Enjoy!

Colbert: The Terrifying Reason Trump Won’t Stick to Facts

Trump’s debate performance Monday night could have been better, to say the least. The GOP nominee appeared to have shown up to the two-hour-long program with 20 minutes of material. And Trump’s obvious repetition wasn’t the GOP nominee’s only issue, as "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert pointed out. Trump "had some problems with the truth last…

I’ve decided to stop taking Cymbalta, so my system will be clear for the next option, when I see Megan on Friday.  It’s been a week and a half, none of the side effects has abated, and as my system has gotten used to it, it has become less effective at blocking phantom pain.  I was up with it most of the night.  Today is a busy one.  Store to Door is coming this afternoon with my grocery delivery, and I’ll have to unpack and put it away.  Later Wendy is coming to de-stink the TomCat.  Tomorrow and Friday may be days with only a Personal Update.  Tomorrow I have to go to the Tri-Met office to prove my disability for Lift Bus authorization renewal.  I wonder if they think I might have grown my leg back.  Friday is my appointment with Megan.

From KP Daily Funnies: Funny or Die: Trump’s Great Temperament

Barf Bag Alert!!

 

Not funny, but spot-on!

From The New Yorker: Plunging the future of the 2016 Presidential debates into doubt, Donald J. Trump said on Tuesday morning that he would not participate in the remaining two debates if Hillary Clinton is there.

Trump blasted the format of Monday night’s debate by claiming that the presence of Clinton was “specifically designed” to distract him from delivering his message to the American people.

“Every time I said something, she would say something back,” he said. “It was rigged.”

He also lambasted the “underhanded tactics” his opponent used during the debate. “She kept on bringing up things I said or did,” he added. “She is a very nasty person.”

Amen, Andy. I can see the possibility that he might tuck tail and run away.

From Daily Kos: House Speaker Paul Ryan once again showed what a total weasel he is in his assessment of Donald Trump’s debate performance. Ryan offered up a glowing review:

“I saw Donald Trump give a spirited voice to those of us who don’t like the status quo, and I see emerging in front of us the potential for what a unified Republican government can get you, which can be the solutions,” Ryan said at a news conference Tuesday. “I think he passed a number of thresholds… and showed that for 90 minutes he could go toe-to-toe with Hillary Clinton.”

With Lyin’ Ryan, the truth of his statements is easy to discern. When he speaks, the opposite of what he says is true.

Last night I watched, and slept poorly afterwards.  Fortunately, I had the foresight to place George on the other side of the room.  That let me avoid using him as a receptacle during hours of Rump Dump Rectumite retching.  Seriously, the temperature reached 92° here yesterday with super-high humidity.  I slept poorly, because it was way too sticky for comfort.  Today’s Short Takes also involve the debate.  It is thoroughly dominating the news.

From The New Yorker: As the nation awaits the first faceoff between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on Monday night, more Americans are expected to self-medicate than for any other Presidential debate in history.

With over a hundred million people projected to watch the debate, roughly sixty million of them will be barely sentient after ingesting what they deem to be the necessary dose of intoxicants.

Davis Logsdon, of the University of Minnesota, estimated on Monday that the level of self-medication for the Trump-Clinton debate could be seven hundred per cent greater than for the first Obama-Romney debate, in 2012.

“The stakes seem higher this time,” Logsdon said. “There’s a sense that, depending on the outcome of tonight’s debate, all human life on the planet could be in peril.”

Dang, Andy!! The one who should have self-medicated, but didn’t, is Rump Dump Trump!

From TPM: It didn’t take long for Donald Trump to interrupt Hillary Clinton during Monday night’s debate, with the first interruption happening less than 15 minutes in. And once it started, he just couldn’t stop.

Barf Bag Alert!

 

51 Times!!

From Public Policy Polling: PPP’s post debate survey, sponsored by VoteVets Action Fund, finds that voters nationally think Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in the debate, 51/40.

Perhaps most important for Clinton is that among young voters, who she has under performed with, 63% think she won the debate to only 24% for Trump. 47% of voters in that age group said the debate tonight made them more likely to vote for her, to only 10% who say it made them less likely to vote for her. For Trump with that group on the other hand, only 23% said the debate made them more likely to vote for him to 39% who said it made them less likely to.

Clinton also won the debate by particularly wide margins with women (54/36) and voters who are either African American or Latino (77/13). Among white voters the debate was basically a draw with Trump coming out ahead 47/45.

Speaking as a Caucasian, I’m thoroughly ashamed that so many white voters preferred Rump Dump Trump.

Here are two more clips from Bill’s show.  In the first, Bill and his guests discussed police.

Bill makes an excellent point that open carry and "open angry" are for whites only.  Great minds fall in the same ditch.  I made a very similar point in today’s Open Thread, before I saw this.  The second clip is the New Rule.

LMAO!!

I’m still struggling to sleep.  At this point, I don’t know if it’s a side effect of Cymbalta or the result of this strange fall weather.  Even though the temperature last night was 50°, it doesn’t make my apartment bearable when there is no wind to move that cool air inside, and the humidity is 96%.  Tomorrow is a holy day in the Church of the Ellipsoid Orb.  I probably won’t publish until late in the day, because my Broncos meditate in Cincinnati in the early game, and it’s a Wendy day.

Short Takes:

From Daily Kos: During a “town hall style” appearance on Wednesday with Sean Hannity to address “African-American concerns,”—an event that seemed to lack actual African-Americans—Donald Trump told an audience member what he would do to curb violent crime. He would implement a nationwide "stop and frisk" program, based on the controversial, racially-biased and unconstitutional program run in New York City for more than a decade. 

This morning he appeared on Fox and Friends and offered more details on how that might work. You will not believe his jaw-dropping remarks. From his appearance on Fox and Friends:

FOX AND FRIENDS: will you explain what that is to my folks down in South Carolina that don’t really deal with stop and frisk? What exactly is it and what are the pros and cons?

TRUMP: Well, there are different levels. and you have somebody coming up who is the expert on it but basically they will—if they see, you know, they are proactive and if they see a person possibly with a gun or they think may have a gun, they will see the person and they will look and they will take the gun away. They will stop, they will frisk, and they will take the gun away and they won’t have anything to shoot with. I mean, how it’s not being used in Chicago is—to be honest with you, it’s a quite unbelievable, and you know the police, the local police, they know who has a gun, who shouldn’t be having a gun. They understand that.

From a Republican Ammosexual perspective, the right to bear arms is absolute…, but for Caucasians only.

From Media Matters: When we heard that rancid white nationalists were holding a press conference near us, there was only one thing to do: send a gay Latino to cover it.

Barf Bucket Alert!!

 

A barf bag was much too small for that one!!

From The New Yorker: At a campaign rally on Friday, Donald Trump warned that Hillary Clinton is scheming to “rig the debate by using facts” in their first televised face-off, on Monday.

“You just watch, folks,” Trump told supporters in Toledo, Ohio. “Crooked Hillary is going to slip in little facts all night long, and that’s how she’s going to try to rig the thing.”

“It’s a disgrace,” he added.

The billionaire drew a sharp contrast between himself and the former Secretary of State by claiming that his debate prep “involved no facts whatsoever.”

Sorry Andy. I’m afraid we already knew that Hillary is sneaky enough to use facts and Rump Dump isn’t.

Although I tired myself out yesterday, I still could not sleep last night or this morning, so I need to rest today.  This is today’s only article from me, and I won’t be sending link messages on Care2.

I’m not sure about its value as humor, but it sure is accurate.

From YouTube: Warren Presses FBI On Financial Crisis Case | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC

 

Lizzie raises some great points. I also want to know why the Banksters that caused the crisis were not prosecuted.

From Daily Kos: …Bondi’s first political opponent in 2010, former state senator and federal prosecutor Dan Gelber, recently said she should at least have returned the check to Trump while the New York case was pending.

But Bondi on Tuesday said she didn’t return the check because it would have looked as if it were a bribe…

LOL!! If you believe that, then I blew the fart, because holding it in would have looked like I ate Chile.
