The “Presidential” Address’ Blooper Reel (Vid of the Day)

Full Disclosure… at present, I’ve been avoiding Donald Trump’s press conferences, “chopper talk” briefings and speeches, etc. in real time. I’d much rather rely on the subsequent analysis presented by my homeland’s TV talk show hosts.

In other words, I believe comedians… such as Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Maher and Trevor Noah to be far more credible sources. Bottom line, their truth to power presentations will likely save more lives than the so-called leader of the free world ever will.

And I only list Noah’s name last as a means to smoothly transition to our Vid of the Day set-up / presentation where he’ll be offering up his spot on take re… what else… the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Indeed, Noah is far more forthcoming and reassuring than Trump, himself. Most assuredly,  small-handed Trump’s underhanded and ham-handed approach has led to a self-made disaster that’s been going viral… in more ways than one.

Turning, now, to the blog nuts and bolts… our clip doth clock out at 9:22 but it’ll be time well spent… if for no other reason than to watch the blooper reel… which btw… begins at time index 6:03 (if you’d rather FF to cut to the chase.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bloomberg’s Past Haunts Him / Spooks Us (Vid of the Day)

In our above clip, Daily Show’s Trevor Noah presents his spot-on diagnosis of what ails POTUS wannabe Michael Bloomberg. As for my own views…

How can we not condemn the 2015 audio clips, and subsequent vids, which amply document Bloomberg’s racial profiling / stop and frisk tough talk? What motivated his harsh, up-against-the-wall stance? Political opportunism? Butt-ugly, soul rotting racism? Did he really expect to not to get tangled up in the Interwebs, where nothing said and done is ever forgotten?

What does he expect us to do now? Downplay his remarks? Shrug and say what? “His bigotry is not as hardcore as Donald Trump’s?” As if what? That makes him worthy of our free pass? And what then? Is the Democratic Party supposed to pin a medal on Mikey, dub him Trump-LIte and expect the electorate to hold their collective nose come Election Day?

Even were we to buy into Mikey’s sudden ruminations / regrets (namely, his lame claims that his past views no longer represent who he is today), just how sincere is this supposed change of heart?

Why, oh why, can’t we ever find a genuine candidate who, has consistently gotten it right in the past… continues to do so today… and can keep that winning streak going well into the future?

Even if Bloomberg is as appalled by his 2015 beliefs as we are… what will he believe come 2021, 2, 3, 4 and beyond? Why should we ever trust and vote for any candidate, who, for mere political gain, can so facilely, so flaccidly flip-flop in the political winds?

More to the point… how would Michael Bloomberg react if tomorrow’s poll numbers indicate that the voters, who approve of racial profiling / stop and frisk, outnumber those who don’t?

America… indeed the entire world… cannot survive four more years of Donald J. Trump. To oust him at the ballot box will require an opponent who possesses an honest, even-handed, unimpeachable presidential demeanor.

And the more Michael Bloomberg’s exposed past haunts him, the more he spooks us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monumental Mental Illness? (Vid of the Day)

Daily Show host Trevor Noah, is to be commended for so cleverly letting this clip’s story report itself. Even so, the alarming, key issue it raises requires a frank discussion… followed by some prompt, official, orderly action. I mean, any rational person, who is earwitness to this content, is bound to wonder…

Just where, within any (more or less) English speaking sector of our vast multiverse, does any of Donald Trump’s stream of (un)consciousness make any sense at all?

Even the trio of glazed eyed, slack jawed, grinning doofuses (a.k.a. Fox & Friends’ sycophantic propagandists Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade) seem to be even more befuddled than normal… if “normal” is even the operative word, here. Donny incessantly and angrily prattles over approximately one dozen of his friends’ repeated attempts to get his crazy train / train of thought back on the tracks.

Anyway, seeing how we are all still here, it’d appear that the boot-licking approach to psychotherapy may’ve distracted him for the time being. But… what the Hell would happen were he to suffer a monumental mental melt down when they’re off duty?

Left to his own devices (an estimated 4,018 nuclear devices) the fake prez / man-child / engineer could easily choo-choo 7.7 Billion Earthlings into an apocalyptic train wreck.

Referring back to our clip… i.e., Donny’s on the air, off the cuff aside… “I know, we can keep this going all day, right? It’s easy”… should serve as a mental note to his upper echelon underlings… oh… say… remind them that, for the sake of America’s…. indeed, the entire world’s survival… it’d be just as easy to promptly dust off the U.S. Constitution’s 25th Amendment Section 4, which states…

“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”
