Dumb Donald: South of the Border

 

For optimal effect, prior to playing back the clip, above, read the set up, below…

From 1973 – 82, long before the Real Donald became a (four-letter) household word, we found the clever (clairvoyant?) Match Game writers submitting Dumb Donald scenarios for emcee Gene Rayburn to recite to the panelists, contestants and all who were playing along in the home and studio audiences… situations such as…

“Dumb Donald was so dumb. He didn’t have an air conditioner,
so, to keep cool, he stuck a ________ down his pants.”

So, what’s the Dumb Donald / Real Donald connection?

Both are embroiled in too hot to handle summers as well as… ahem… to phrase this decorously… dealing with painful, south of the border issues.

RE the Real Donald’s long hot summer… his dual DIY projects find him obsessing over statues that wrongfully glorify bigoted traitors to America and deploying hotheaded goons squads to trample the 1st Amendment Rights of the Black Lives Matter demonstrators who, rightfully so, have been toppling the fake prez’s monuments to stupidity. Meanwhile, his neglected, raging out of control pandemic has resulted in skyrocketing the fevers of his COVID-19 victims.

RE the Real Donald’s deep south, not so hot nether regions… well… for the details… let’s check out Jimmy Kimmel’s interview with Stephanie Clifford. I’ve cued up this (rewindable) 10:42, NSFW Linked Clip to start at 7:56.

Re our Match Game clip… we can only hope that the Real Donald never catches wind of these panelists’ bygone responses… I mean… he’s just Dumb enough to actually try what, they claim, the Fake Dumb Donald did.

Well, it’s high time we scroll up and hit that playback button… discover how many celebs, contestant Kathy is able to match…

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

UPDATE: COVID Vid of the Day [03/04/20]

Ever since Coronavirus / COVID19 began to dominate most news cycles, I’ve been speculating about the health risks which all 2020 POTUS candidates (and their surrogates) have been taking by making public appearances at campaign rallies and other political functions.

Most assuredly, no matter what a candidate’s political stripe may be, this microbe will not differentiate amongst them.

More to the point, in a short time, COVID 19 could easily sicken… maybe even sicken to death… whatever DC big shot it decides to sink its microscopic fangs into.

ABC’s late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and his staff writers have also been thinking along those lines. They even produced an animated representation of how this disease could hit a campaign trail of its very own making.

I’ve cued up our above clip to feature that specific portion of KImmel’s most recent monologue… however… if time permits… be sure to rewind / view this vid in its entirety. This quick-witted, spot on commentary won’t disappoint you!
