Time To Play Family Feud! (Vid of the Day)

For starters, in the event that, someday, some Trumpian Executive Order purges YouTube of all content, which mocks him, let’s excerpt just one of our featured, vintage clip’s comedic gems… where Larry David, in the role of Senator Bernie Sanders, forewarns…

“Look, Senator Clinton is the prune juice of this election. She might not seem that appetizing but if you don’t take her now, you’re gonna be clogged with crap for a very long time.”

That said, if you haven’t already done so, let’s click playback to play Family Feud… and laugh our butts off. But, do stick around for the reality check that follows… especially if you’re an American voter, who assumes Joe Biden is a shoo-in.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When the above, Saturday Night Live sketch was first posted, way back on October 2, 2016, it was so easy to LOL at the very notion of Donald J. Trump ever defeating Hillary Clinton.

Little doubt, Clinton, who was thought to be on the fast track to the Oval Office, was laughing, too. But, in the end, Trump got the last laugh. Such a monumentally unfunny outcome doth remind us of Aesop’s fable, The Tortoise and the Hare… i.e., his moral which addresses the issue of overconfidence, thusly…

“Don’t brag about your lightning pace, for
Slow and Steady won the race!” [read more]

Of course, a more apt description of Trump would be Slow and UN-Steady / UN-Stable.

Anyway, we can only hope that Biden’s poll numbers, which predict he’ll trounce Trump, have not resulted in anyone’s overconfidence, especially the voters’.

Granted, the polls are probably correct, but, taking Donny for granted is always dangerous. How dangerous is it?

Just ask shrink and author Mary Trump. Her recently published tell-all, right in the title, itself, characterizes her unfunny Uncle Donny as the “World’s Most Dangerous Man”. The purpose of her exposé is edification on a level that’s veritably Aesopian. More to the point, it’s fair to assume Dr. Trump isn’t laughing.

 

Stay Safe! Stay Publicly Masked! Stay Healthy!

 

 

 

 

What Happened: The Damaged “Clinton Brand”?

I’ve just begun reading What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton (HRC)… Herstory relating her successful failure, ’16 presidential campaign (i.e., her popular vote victory / Electoral College defeat). Although I’m only on page 124, I don’t deem it premature to pay her (perhaps) the highest compliment any author can ever receive… she’s written a page turner.

I don’t believe it too soon, either, to offer my own theory re what happened…

Ms. Rodham’s defeat, in part, had been due to that godforsaken Clinton moniker. The infidelity of her hubby… William Jefferson Clinton (WJC)… had utterly, irreparably damaged (to put this in political parlance) “The Clinton Brand”… BOTH his and hers. In a fair and just world, no woman should ever be judged based upon a spouse’s deplorable acts. But… regrettably… use of words like “fair” and “just” rarely apply, here.

SIDEBAR: Maybe if the #MeToo Movement existed back in that Nineties era, the outrage and outcry of courageous women could’ve succeeded where the more official, congressional impeachment efforts had failed… i.e., might #MeToo have booted Billy Boy out of office?

Now… to be fair… it is plausible that in all of these intervening years, WJC may’ve mended his cheating ways and learned to show his wife the respect she deserves… BUT… since their Republican foes were (still are) “elephants” who never forget, that means, on Election Day ’16, that damaged “Clinton Brand” had dragged her down.

Which leaves us with the $64 Million question…

Why were/are Donald Trump’s supporters so forgiving of his vulgarly stated admissions of sexually abusing / assaulting women… as revealed on that infamous Access Hollywood ClipYET, so merciless in condemning HRC because of her cheating husband? Beats me! You’d have to ask them to explain themselves… their flagrant hypocrisy.

So… that’s what was. As for what could’ve been…

A woman not need be dependent on any man to define who she is. Oh sure… WJC’s presence and presidency did fast track her arrival upon the national / international stage… BUT… there’s no denying that a woman of her superb intellect, unparalleled qualifications, strength of character and levelheaded demeanor could’ve become a Senator, Secretary of State, POTUS… maybe much more… all on her own… and in all likelihood… decades earlier.
