Boy .. the EVENT IS REPLAYING NOW!
The opening is NUTZ — I had missed it. Images of his birth cert, interspersed with sports shots, the flag, eagle !!!???
Then the jungle movie .. the animal baby and all the
animals bowing down? This is more than malignant narcissism .. it’s certifiable ... perverse delusions
Slamming Matt Damon ?? Mean and nasty ‘cause Damon said he was disappointed in him. He’s a small, vicious twirp.
His slams were all scorched earth tactics .. Campaign 2012 for certain. This election WILL be the bloodiest.
Glad it did get in Breaking .. thanks.
Just listen to the ‘O’ — all mean, nasty digs .. very few laughs at himself, which most presidents did up grandly
and very magnanimously. Now .. listen to the Trump
Well said :)
Yup .. that’s all he did .. and everyone who dares to utter the slightest objection to him or his policies, or may run for the office. That’s his core nature .. power hungry, mean and vindictive. There’s no depths to which he and his comrades won’t sink. Blood war coming.
Michele Bachmann is here. She is considering running for president. Which is weird, because I hear she was born in Canada. Yes, Michele, this is how it starts.
Jon Huntsman is with us. Theres something you might now know about Jon. He didnt learn to speak Chinese to go there. Oh no. He learned English to come here.
Theres a vicious rumor floating around that I think could really hurt Mitt Romney. I heard he passed universal health care when he was governor of Massachusetts. Someone should really get to the bottom of that.
Tim Pawlentys real name? According to President Obama, its Hosni, as in ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak. Thats unfortunate, the president deadpanned.
As for Trump, the president said his decision to release his original, long-form birth certificate this week must have been a big relief for the New York real estate mogul. He can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter. Like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?
Not ONE reference to Sarah Palin. Unless there was innuendo that someone may recall ?
O’Reilly stated one night this past week that Trump had told him he had $7 Billion net worth. That should be enough to investigate the Hell out of Obama and his minions.
I watched a rerun of the dinner on CSPAN and just saw the Zero’s attempts at humor, followed by this Seth guy (who I’ve never heard of previously) who also bombed at getting any big laughs.
The camera did show the back of Juan William’s head once. I suppose that Wendell Goler (FNC, and black) was also there, since he took Major Garrett’s place in the WH Press Corps as a major suck-up to Obama.
Seth’s only humorous joke was about Brian Williams from NBC; rushing back from the Royal Wedding coverage to appear in the South after the tornadoes (like Shep Smith and Geraldo did after Katrina).
Trump NEVER cracked a smile, as the two idiots at the podium kept attacking him with darts instead of humor. The Donald WILL find a way to get revenge! I’m looking forward to what will happen.
Trump is serious, and sickened, regarding our sad state of the union. As are many of us. The clown in chief gets it, alright. He knew he would be a one term TOTUS. Which is precisely why he is doing all the damage he can, in one term.
Just pray we can hold this marxist anchor baby at bay, til then.
Also pray, our tea party members in Congress, will have the courage to call for an amendment to our Constitution. One which will prevent another anchor baby, with loyalties beyond our borders, from ever again becoming President. Where all future President’s must be born of two citizen parents, as our founders intended.
Note to Trump, if you intend to run, make this fix, a part of your agenda.
Thanks for redoing that link. I try to get it to be live like that and some times I get it sometimes I don’t.
Nothing was said about Sarah?
I tried to watch the video, just cannot stand him.
Trump is planning his revenge. Even if he does not wind up being a candidate, I am sure he will do all he can to help to defeat this fraud. While Trump is not a true conervative, he is still a patriot ....... and he will fearlessly speak out when he feels he must. Bravo Trump!
I noticed that too. They mentioned Katie Couric's brilliant question to her "what newspaper do you read", but they were very careful not to mention her name.
By the way did you read the comments at politico? I sure notice more unhappy campers than happy these days. He got heckled in New York this week at a fundraiser and those protesters in Frisco. I am hoping he doesn’t win re-election I so worry he will.
No prob ..
That was weird. CSPAN just seconds ago .. began at the very beginning again. Glitched.
I feel ya .. ;)
Forewarned is fore armed .. for those who make themselves
stand it and then throw up .. LOL..
Thank you !
I didn’t .. were they negative ?
“Tonight was a huge win for Trump. Huge.”
Yep, the ball is in Trump’s court and he can play it any way he likes. I just hope he doesn’t overshoot.
Obama made Trump bigger than life tonight. He also gave literal meaning to the “bully pulpit”. Trump is a boaster, but Obama BULLIED Trump, and nobody likes a bully. The disdain on Trump’s face tonight reflected the disdain many Americans have for the childish arrogance of this administration.
I couldn’t get myself to watch it. I was asking you if you heard any? If so just strange they are off of her all of a sudden, then again they have the Donald to pick on now.
...and it's those ‘toned’ arms that make me chuckle...hurry up 2012 so we can send this tribe back to Chicago.
