Twump and Pooty 18

by Robert Grossman #robertgrossmanart


Twitter has rules? Then how does Dotard remain on it while threatening the free press, numerous people, our common decency and, um, nuclear war, while an actress calling someone out and raising awareness about crime gets kicked off? I’ve never understood the medium and rarely (if ever) have been drawn to “tweet” but riddle me that. Oh, and in other news, the nimble, little-fingered orange ogre is really unraveling healthcare, winning the bs kneeling flag battle, still fighting with poor Puerto Rico and hasn’t mentioned the wildfires in California, income inequality once or yet condemned US Nazis... Did we make a wrong turn somewhere? Methinks we should have turned left at the STOP light instead of going over this cliff.

Say it loud say it proud. Our orange president is Mentally Deranged.

Trump's response to Harvey victims

"You're all welcome to stay, for a discounted rate, and temporarily of course, at the Trump International Crowne Plaza Galleria in Houston. 5 star accommodations, loyal staff, valet Indoor parking, continental breakfast, clean, white sheets, full service tweeting and flat screen tvs in every room that do not, let me repeat, do not, play Fake News... A terrific hotel if I say so myself, believe me, Ivanka and I have stayed together there many times, and no one knows disaster relief better than me, just asked the Democrats. Terrible! Any discussion of service and amenities must begin as well with my signature Trump Attaché™ service. Everything you need and more! And Harvey, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing while you're flooding so good. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily if you do. Limited Occupancy so act fast!"

The Echrispse.

Someone lent me their glasses in Time Sq and I saw it it was cool and my life has changed in oh so many ways you have no idea. For one thing, I instantly realized that If I'd bought a million pairs of those shades and sold them on a street corner the past few days I'd be rich now. I also realized that if I'd still had my welding helmet from my welding days I coulda walked around NYC wearing it all day today and it woulda been ok.

I updated Kyle Goen's 2004 poster of Dubya (which I still have a sticker of adorning the back of my electric bass) because it seemed appropriate. This orange nut job "the people" elected is a real deal madman.

To Pay or Not to Play, that is the question...

It really is. I haven't written here in a while, as more often than not I simply do not see the point anymore. This City, this Country, and perhaps the Entire World has gone to shit. Corruption, legal in the US, is not only practiced but it is embraced and gleefully, blindly worshipped. I could not post this post on Facebook, the sounding board of the masses that means nada in the vast scheme of things (it may as well be snap chat it's so fucking useless and trivial). We have an evil orange clown as President, presiding over a circus of madmen yet there is no resistance movement but a banner that says resist. It's a bowel movement, the counter culture and unions have been decimated and replaced by smiling cyborgs. Where do they come from? the 80's no doubt. A motherlode mothership of yes-men and yes-women have infiltrated the masses and, let's be honest, won. Truth be told, there is no future at this point if you are not filthy rich sheep. There is just idiocracy, a sound bludgeoning of numbness that will inevitably lead to more pain and suffering en route to unmarked graves. Ok, I sound pessimistic, like a "dark lord" (as I was called recently), but someone give me one shimmering reason to believe that that we are not ROYALLY FUCKED??‽!! I guess I'm gonna have to cough it up somehow if I want to survive anymore. Lobotomize Wide Shut.

Overheard an obviously mentally, physically and emotionally distraught older gentleman muttering to himself on the subway "They want to kill me. They will not pay me more than $10 an hour". This is one cruel country we live in. We have the resources to provide food, shelter, a decent wage, education and healthcare to everyone, yet we don't. We hoard, condescend and ignore the needy instead. It sickens me.

What, where, how, why, when or who?

I vote for how even though it comes with some obvious obstacles. As for the others, we can all figure out where unless it's reliant, who we know (or wish we did), what can be nonsense, when unreliable, and why... well, keep asking but you'll never get an adequate response to that one.

It's all orange smoke and fun house mirrors.

...and in today's Fascist Funnies

President Defect Trump threatened to jail and/or revoke citizenship of Mr. Burns and Fanny Flagg. Told that one is a cartoon character and the other irrelevant unless you watch reruns of Match Game '76, Illegitimate Orange Bozo Hitler retorted "Your next!", misspelling the word You're.

Russians and Liars and Feds oh my!

We've heard and seen it all this year, and none of it sticks. There's so much you would think would matter, but apparently nothing matters to the powers that be in 2016 America. So... throw all the bums out, those incoming, etc. The "swamp" is real, the only real thing that that orange charlatan said even though it includes the orange douche who said it, plus, everyone who refuses to really right the wrongs against us all that have been perpetrated for 40 years now (not only this past year from hell). Bottom line: it's all a sham of mockery. The only thing to believe right now is our own hearts and minds.

Re: the Defecatoral College

Look, I truly would be overjoyed if the Electoral College was contested (God bless -and I'm not religious- Jill Stein for her balls), but A) Sanders should be president not Hillary if Trump get's bounced and B) it will not happen. The dangers of a Trump presidency are speculative (um... certain in my eyes) but the dangers of overturning his nazi presiDUNCEy via the Electoral College are 100% absolute. One reason Trump is so fucking frightening is that he was prepared to refuse if he had lost 11/08 (and now he may NEVER leave the White House in fact, becoming King Donald the 1st), but you can imagine that he will also ADAMANTLY then refuse any new and improved "loss" 12/19. Um, I'd say. Plus, his supporters will revolt. I say good then, revolt if need be and yes, contest the shit out of this thing as we need a civil war in this country NOW, but the outcome of all this will be exactly as it already is because the spineless Dems who are so hellbent on preserving a Democracy that isn't a Democracy will be sure to see it's so. We will wake up 12/12 as we will tomorrow with Donald Orange Clownchild Fucking Trump as our next president. What needs to happen is all the Dem bums need to be thrown out and we need a progressive revolution from the left. Let's make THAT happen. Yes bogus baby steps ala more status quo Dem leadership that's seen my standards of living further deteriorate is preferable to the outright fascism we're heading into, but this ship has sailed. All that said I'll sign everything that comes my way til the cows come home with the chickens to roost 12/19 but there is no fucking way in hell that Obama and Shillary are going to rock this boat.
