Charles is so sad

Charles is distraught that Obama is leaving the Presidency. He goes on twitter to lament Obama leaving office.

He needs a handkerchief!

    Well he had his eight years to fix up global warming, destroy the coal industry, stop domestic oil, reform the medical system, stop racial division, use his awesome powers of negotiation to stop wars, close Guantanamo, cease waterboarding, bring real peace to Iraq, get the economy back on its feet, lower unemployment, decrease terrorism foreign and domestic, bring peace to the middle east, extend our hand of friendship to North Korea and Iran, and finally, bring Russia and America together as buddies in this big ol’ world.

    I can see where he made a good run at a few of his goals.
    The coal thing and possibly waterboarding, anyway.
    No scandals. That’s a plus.

    Hastings and Breitbart were unavailable for comment.

    If somebody with basic skilz could change the image on his t-shirt to a rumpled Obummer, this would be perfect. 😆

    Worst. President. Ever.

    I was unable to listen to Unicorn Messiah’s speech due to gastric distress at the very thought of doing so, but checking out the transcript…incredible. The amount of delusion and denial surrounding this empty suit’s total failure as president is staggering. “I love you back,” he giggled, to the adoring crowd of actors. Thank God he’s leaving soon!

    Taco Bell is reportedly stuffing Cheetos into its next burrito
    Published July 28, 2016
    FoxNews.com

    Taco Bell Canada introduced Beefy Cheddar Cheetos Crunchwrap Sliders and Supreme Cheetos Crunchwrap Sliders earlier this year. (Taco Bell Canada)
    Taco Bell paved the way for junk food, fast food mashups with its Doritos Tacos Locos.

    Now the chain is throwing yet another snack into the meal mix by stuffing Cheetos into its burritos next month.

    According to FoodBeast, the new meaty burritos will be stuffed with seasoned beef, buttered rice, a cheesy nacho sauce and crunchy bits of the popular puffy cheese snack.

    But is this new burrito a true mashup or just cheesy mush?

    Cheetos may be summer’s hottest snack food meal addition. In June, Burger King released Mac and Cheetos—deep-friend macaroni and cheese bites covered in Cheetos dust.

    Taco Bell Canada introduced Beefy Cheddar Cheetos Crunchwrap Sliders and Supreme Cheetos Crunchwrap Sliders in March. The release of the Cheetos-stuffed burrito will be the first time the taco chain is introducing any type of Cheetos mashup to U.S. fans.

    Each Cheetos stuffed burrito is just $1 and the chain expects it to start rolling them out nationwide in early August.

    @tacobell is gonna start testing this cheesy Cheetos Burrito next month! || #foodbeast #tacobell #cheetos

      OMG. The calories must be obscene!!

      • Octopus says:

        Yes, but they’re only $1. Perfect for the groveling gourmand, aka Chunky McDumbth. 😆

        This is one experiment I will pass on. I usually like to try new things that are advertised to me on TV during sporting events, just to play along with Madison Ave. I know they’re watching me, and I don’t want them to get suspicious about anything. I was disappointed in the Doritos-shell taco — way too thin and crumbly! I don’t need any calorie bombs like this Cheeto burrito, with buttered rice. Taco Bell, stick with what made you great. My normal order if I’m hungry is a Chicken Burrito Supreme and two Crunchy Beef Taco Supremes, with hot sauce. About $4. 🙂

        • ISpeakJive says:

          Certain things at Taco bell aren’t bad. Usually the things that DON”T have any orange melty plastic fake cheese In them. This is gonna be like wet styrofoam peanuts in cheese sauce. Umm, umm. $1. Get ’em hooked while they’re young.

          • Octopus says:

            My loyalty to Taco Bell goes back to my college days, when you could fill up there for a few bucks. You still can. It’s not gourmet food by any means, but it’s food. The hot sauce kills anything bad. 🙂

        Hey Gregory, the server has been offline since it was discovered that Shillary was careless with classified emails. Since all 33,000 deleted emails were only about “yoga” and “wedding plans” what’s the worry doofus? God I hope Russia or someone, anyone has those emails and releases them at the most strategic moment.

        • Octopus says:

    The biggest jerk in Hollywood is at the convention, spewing lies and letting Shrillary do voice-over in his dunderheaded production. It’s unbelievable that anyone still listens to this bullshit, but the indoctrination is strong and ongoing. Getting rid of the Dhimmis in the WH would help a bit. One more reason to vote for Teh Don.

    • Arachne says:

      I think the RNC should finance it’s OWN climate change film. It could feature voiceovers by Obama, Kerry, Beastie and lots and lots of Hollywood celebrities, telling us why we must do everything .

      And the accompanying film would show them getting into their limousines (or motorcades where appropriate), flying off on their private planes, heating and cooling their 20,000 sq.ft. houses, relaxing on their yachts……

      • Octopus says:

        The funny/sad thing about that is, they could make that film and show it proudly to their brain-dead constituents/true believers, and never grasp the irony.

  12. Arachne says:

    Has Fatass mentioned Dinesh d’sousa’s “Hillary’s America” yet? You know, him being such a great fact checker and all.

    And let’s review:

    Dinesh d’sousa does documentary “Obama’s America” (grossed $35M) – finds himself charged with campaign finance violations (two straw donors to Gililibrand’s challenger (while skated with irregularities in his on-line failsafes to prevent foreign money)) and is prosecuted and jailed.

    Al Sharpton – who is a tax cheat to the tune of $7 million dollars. Is allowed to skate and is invited to the White House.

    • Octopus says:

      I have to check that new one out — I was very impressed with the Unicorn Messiah original. And all of it came true, btw. Much to my dismay and disgust.

  13. Octopus says:

    I get a message saying, “Olbermann destroys Trump campaign with single tweet.” Naturally, I’m curious. Perhaps Olbie has stumbled on the long-sought homo-pedophilia charges, from Donald’s days at boarding school. But…no. Not exactly. Not sure it’s the death-blow he was looking for…

    • Arachne says:

      And Olberman didn’t even make that up. I saw that on the 27th. Now Olberdork is appropriating others’ cleverness for himself. Par for the course for a man whose ex-girlfriends say has no dick.

          • Octopus says:

            Obama, aka Unicorn Messiah, aka SCOAMF, played some bad golf, rode a girl’s bike with mom-jeans and a helmet, read some dumb speeches written by a recent college grad, and posed for selfies. Shrillary would be even worse.

      And during this election season, it’s really important to remind voters that this historical woman candidate:

      1. Was an integral part of a campaign to smear the women who reported her husband’s rape and sexual assualts.

      2. Never sponsored or had enacted a SINGLE piece of legislation that “enabled” women. Only bill she sponsored that was passed was one naming the US Courthouse in the S.D.N.Y. for Thurgood Marshall. Yeah, I bet that was tough.

      • Octopus says:

        We believe that Chunky’s despicable thievery from Duke is what led to him being blackballed by the jazzy noodling set. His too-late apology upon the death of Mr. Dukey-Stick did nothing to appease his angry ex-colleagues. Plus, they could get any 18-year-old guitar player to supply any noodling they required.

    What is going to be fun to watch is the campaign venues. Trump’s been filling stadiums. Beastie can’t fill a movie theater.

    Interesting that Oblahblah is saying he’ll go campaign for her for a month. Of course, every stop he makes will have an “official Presidential” event scheduled so taxpayers are on the hook for the use of Air Force One. Hope Trump hammers this home.

  25. Be a dick for Jeezuz says:

    This happened after Shrilldebeast’s moron slogan fest snoozer last night.

    And then there were Trump’s reaction.

    The Republican candidate attacked Hilary Clinton with a rapid-fire string of tweets moments after her speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night. “Hillary’s refusal to mention radical Islam, as she pushes a 550% increase in refugees, is more proof that she is unfit to lead the country,” Trump tweeted minutes after Clinton wrapped up her speech accepting the Democratic presidential nomination.

    He repeatedly hit Clinton for being soft on terror. The GOP nominee added that Americans’ “way of life is under threat by Radical Islam and Hillary Clinton cannot even bring herself to say the words.”

    Trump also hit Clinton over her role in the Obama administration, saying, “Hillary’s wars have unleashed destruction, terrorism and ISIS across the world” while emphasizing that Hillary is Wall Street’s candidate: “Hillary will never reform Wall Street. She is owned by Wall Street.”

    He continued his attack by focusing on the economy, saying the world would have corruption and “no borders, no jobs, no safety” under her administration. Trump’s senior policy adviser Stephen Miller echoed the businessman’s complaints, calling her speech “an insulting collection of clichés and recycled rhetoric.””She spent the evening talking down to the American people she’s looked down on her whole life,” Miller added. “Hillary Clinton says America is stronger together. But in Hillary Clinton’s America, millions of people are left out in the cold.”

        That’s a good video, except I don’t think the elections are 100% rigged in advance. If that was true, Trump would be long gone, and Jeb would be standing up there looking like a junior high assistant principal, mouthing vague platitudes. Plus, Shrill wouldn’t have been so worried about the rise of Sanders, and so terrified of speaking in public to non-vetted audiences with non-vetted questions. I mean, I applaud their cynicism, but they take it a bit too far.

The reason they haven’t publicly disclosed this information is because they feel it’ll cause people to doubt their competence. It actually cost them a role in a President’s administration.

    Hillary Clinton Took 6 Months to ‘Get Over’ Concussion, Bill Says of Timeline
    May 14, 2014
    By MARY BRUCE

    Bill Clinton did more today than defend his wife, Hillary Clinton, from recent accusations leveled by GOP strategist Karl Rove that she suffered brain damage after falling in December 2012.

    The former president revealed that his wife’s injury “required six months of very serious work to get over,” he said during a question-and-answer session at the Peterson Foundation in Washington.

    “They went to all this trouble to say she had staged what was a terrible concussion that required six months of very serious work to get over,” he said. “It’s something she never low-balled with the American people, never tried to pretend it didn’t happen.”

    But Bill Clinton’s timeline appears to differ from official comments from the State Department at the time.

    “Judging by the woman we saw this morning and the workload that she’s got she seems to be fully recovered,” spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters at a State Department briefing Jan. 7, 2013, about a month after Hillary Clinton’s fall and concussion occurred.

    That same day, State Department officials presented the secretary of state with a football helmet as a welcome-back gift. With Hillary Clinton’s health back in the headlines, here is a review of her illness and the statements that were released about her initial “bug,” hospitalization and, several weeks later, those now-famous glasses:

    2012:

    Dec. 7: Last time Clinton is seen in public before the illness, wrapping up a European trip in Northern Ireland.

    Dec. 10: Clinton cancels trip because of illness. From State Department spokesman Philippe Reines: “Since she’s still under the weather, we’ll be staying put this week instead of heading to North Africa and the Middle East as originally planned. In her place, Deputy Secretary Burns will travel to Marrakech for the Friends of the Syrian People meeting. We will let you know when she shakes this bug and resumes a public schedule.”

    Sometime early the week of Dec. 9: Clinton faints and falls while at home.

    Dec. 13: Clinton is diagnosed with a concussion, the New York Times reports, with a State Department official saying the concussion “was not severe”

    Dec. 15: State Department spokesman Philippe Reines’ statement on the concussion: “While suffering from a stomach virus, Secretary Clinton became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion. She has been recovering at home and will continue to be monitored regularly by her doctors. At their recommendation, she will continue to work from home next week, staying in regular contact with Department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon.”

    Dec. 15: Statement from her doctors: “Secretary Clinton developed a stomach virus, leading to extreme dehydration, and subsequently fainted. Over the course of this week we evaluated her and ultimately determined she had also sustained a concussion. We recommended that the Secretary continue to rest and avoid any strenuous activity, and strongly advised her to cancel all work events for the coming week. We will continue to monitor her progress as she makes a full recovery.” – Dr. Lisa Bardack, Mt. Kisco Medical Group, and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi, George Washington University

    Dec. 15: Clinton informs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee that she will not testify before Congress on Benghazi later that month. Republican Rep. Allen West accused Clinton of catching “Benghazi flu” and John Bolton, former U.N. ambassador under President George W. Bush, suggested Clinton fabricated a “diplomatic illness” to miss the hearing.

    Dec. 17: State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland shoots down any suggestion that the secretary’s illness is an excuse to avoid from testifying before Congress on Benghazi. “She very much wanted to, she was willing to,” and had planned to, Nuland said. To that end Nuland said that Clinton sent letters that morning to both committees, “making clear that she expects there will be on going communications in January with Congress and she will be open to that,” essentially leaving it open that she would be willing to testify at a later date.

    Dec. 20: Reines announces that Clinton is being grounded: “Given her condition, the secretary’s doctors have advised that she may not fly for any significant duration in the coming weeks. So as things stand we are not planning any travel through mid-January.”

    Dec. 30: Reines statement on the discovery of her blood clot: “In the course of a follow-up exam today, Secretary Clinton’s doctors discovered a blood clot had formed, stemming from the concussion she sustained several weeks ago. She is being treated with anti-coagulants and is at New York-Presbyterian Hospital so that they can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours. Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion. They will determine if any further action is required.”

    Dec. 31: Statement from Clinton’s doctors: “In the course of a routine follow-up MRI on Sunday, the scan revealed that a right transverse sinus venous thrombosis had formed. This is a clot in the vein that is situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage. To help dissolve this clot, her medical team began treating the Secretary with blood thinners. She will be released once the medication dose has been established. In all other aspects of her recovery, the Secretary is making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family, and her staff.” – Dr. Lisa Bardack, Mt. Kisco Medical Group, and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi, George Washington University.

    2013:

    Jan. 2: Clinton is released from the hospital. Reines statement: “Secretary Clinton was discharged from the hospital this evening. Her medical team advised her that she is making good progress on all fronts, and they are confident she will make a full recovery. She’s eager to get back to the office, and we will keep you updated on her schedule as it becomes clearer in the coming days. Both she and her family would like to express their appreciation for the excellent care she received from the doctors, nurses and staff at New York Presbyterian Hospital Columbia University Medical Center.”

    During the briefing that day, Nuland responds to criticism that the department had not been forthcoming in disclosing the secretary’s health problems: “I think really we’ve been extremely forthcoming including from her doctors on the very specific issues here.”

    Jan. 7: Clinton returns to work.

    Jan. 9: Clinton first appears on camera at a photo-op alongside Dan Rooney, ambassador to Ireland. She is not wearing glasses. She tells reporters in a brief, playful question and answer session that she is thrilled to be back.

    Jan. 23: Clinton testifies on the Hill about Benghazi, raising questions about her glasses. Reines confirmed that Clinton was wearing the glasses as a result of the concussion: “She’ll be wearing these glasses instead of her contacts for a period of time because of lingering issues stemming from her concussion. With them on she sees just fine. In fact, she got a kick out of the above when she saw them crystal clear.”

    Nuland offered a similar statement: “In response to lots of speculation, the secretary is going to be wearing the glasses instead of her contacts for some period of time because of lingering issues that stemmed from her concussion. She sees just fine with them, and she also enjoyed some of the comments she saw in the press about the extra sort of diplomatic lift she gets from gesturing with them.”

    Jan. 27: CBS News airs a joint “60 Minutes” interview with Clinton and Obama. She is still wearing the glasses.

    Feb. 1: Clinton’s last day as Secretary of State (from this point on she is a private citizen). She is still wearing the glasses.

    Feb. 14: Clinton makes her first public appearance since leaving office. She is not wearing the glasses.

      A TV station here used to play Grand Ole Opry episodes very early in the morning on the weekdays. I got up early just to get my fill of June Carter before I got ready for work. I love that old corn cob stuff.

    Hadn’t heard about this one before. Boy, he sure looks like him. I wonder if Ginger is on the case. He was supposed to release a bunch of info about Obama’s paternity any day now. Maybe he’s scared of ending up in a fatal wreck or something.

    Why hasn’t Japan properly atoned for its atrocities in WWII?

    Originally Answered: What are the reasons Japan doesn’t apologize to China and Korea?
    Because Japanese politicians have this image in the back of their subconscious.

    Using a traditional Japanese blade, 17-year-old Yamaguchi assassinates socialist politician Asanuma in Tokyo, 1960

    The photo was taken directly after Yamaguchi stabbed Asanuma and is seen here attempting a second stab though he is restrained before that happens. Otoya Yamaguchi was a member of a right-wing ultranationalist Japanese group. Inejiro Asanuma was a leader of the socialist party in Japan.

    If you think the ultra-conservatives are fanatical in America, they’re tame kittens compared to the ones in Japan. Any Japanese politician who tries to apologize is committing suicide.

    Baseball, again…I’m killing my team by mentioning them online, but I can’t stop myself. I’m a little obsessed right now. I know the window is starting to close on this group, with Miggy and Verlander aging, and talk of trading other good players to get prospects and rebuild. This weekend before the trade deadline is a key moment in this team’s history, as they have transformed themselves from probable sellers to probable buyers in the last couple of weeks.

    I still feel this team can make a strong run this year. We have Zimmerman and Norris coming back from IR soon to bolster the pitching, and JD Martinez is hitting the ball hard in Toledo, coming back from his freakish broken-arm. There’re some “deadline acquisitions” right there. I would go out and get one more strong arm for the bullpen, and then strap in for a bumpy ride to the postseason.

    I know this streaky club is going to give us some bad moments, but they aren’t quitting. I think we can catch the Indians once we get healthy, and if not, we can certainly snag a wild card berth. That’s all I ask for, is a chance to get hot at the right time, in October. If the Royals can do it, so can we. 🙂
