This is how bad things have gotten

Even George W. Bush (the Dumber) has some choice words for the Lugenorange (via Jezebel):

President Donald Trump, a soggy Cheeto in a broken toilet bowl, gave a speech at his inauguration that really blew everyone’s socks off as it gushed forcefully from his windbag mouth. Even former President George W. Bush, who is not considered one of the great orators of our time, was disturbed.

Yashar Ali of New York Magazinealleges that three different people in attendance told him they heard Bush assess Trump’s speech as he scampered off the dais. Short, but sweet:

“That was some weird shit.”

This means the guy who wasn’t fit to be president believes the current president isn’t fit to be president.

So how’s that working out for the rest of us?

(Oh! and “Soggy Cheeto in a broken toilet bowl” is pure poetry!)

Sharknado is real!

A bull shark has become an unexpected victim of Cyclone Debbie after it was found dead in floodwaters in north Queensland.

The metre-and-a-half bull shark was discovered on Thursday morning in a puddle in Ayr, a town of Burdekin, just north of where Debbie made landfall earlier this week.

It is believed the shark possibly became stranded as water surged through the area, causing pockets of flooding.

No. Not pockets of flooding. This is what happened!

And then, they took away Roberto

Stupidity has no ethnic bounds:

When Helen Beristain told her husband she was voting for Donald Trump last year, he warned her that the Republican nominee planned to “get rid of the Mexicans.”

Defending her vote, Helen quoted Trump directly, noting that the tough-talking Republican said he would only kick the “bad hombres” out of the country, according to the South Bend Tribune.

Months later, Roberto Beristain — a successful businessman, respected member of his Indiana town and father of three American-born children — languishes in a detention facility with hardened criminals as he awaits his deportation back to Mexico, the country he left in 1998 when he entered the United States illegally.

“I wish I didn’t vote at all,” Helen Beristain told the Tribune. “I did it for the economy. We needed a change.”

Really, don’t expect any sympathy from me, because:

  1. The economy was fine and growing and would have done much better if the vermin in the GOP hadn’t spent the past eight years undermining everything Obama tried to fix.
  2. We didn’t need a change. You needed a fucking brain. What the hell did you expect from the dwarf-digited douche.

Remember when we had a real president?

Via Vox:

The utter failure of Paul Ryan and Donald Trump to pass a bill rolling back the Affordable Care Act makes one thing perfectly clear: love him or hate him, Barack Obama is one of the most consequential presidents in American history — and that he will be a particularly towering figure in the history of American progressivism.

He signed into law a comprehensive national health insurance bill, a goal that had eluded progressive presidents for a century — and built it strong enough to withstand assaults from the Supreme Court and avoid repeal from a Republican administration. He got surprisingly tough reforms to Wall Street passed as well, not to mention a stimulus package that both blunted the recession and transformed education and energy policy.

He’s put in place the toughest climate rules in American history and signed a major international climate accord. He opened the US to Cuba for the first time in more than half a century, and reached a peaceful settlement to the nuclear standoff with Iran.

You can celebrate or bemoan these accomplishments. Liberals hail them as moves toward a social democratic welfare state and a foreign policy more skeptical of military intervention; conservatives critique Obama’s efforts to expand regulation and the government’s reach, and accuse him of abdicating America’s role as world hegemon.

But no one can deny that the changes Obama has wrought are enormous in scale.

And it was only four months ago.
