Wake Up & Smell The Covfefe…

Two instances of humour from the States overnight, Dear Reader. One intended, the other not so much…

Trump wins by a head

*Yikes! Gruesome…*

The Comedienne Vs The Donald…

*Knot that Donald, Clicky…*

First up, the comedienne Kathy Griffin with her intended attempt at humour…

*I guess the only line she’ll be concerned with now is the unemployment line, Clicky…*

Who she was trying to entertain with the skit is unknown. It certainly wasn’t the 62 million plus people that voted for Trump 7 months ago. And where she got the idea that a dead Prez is funny, is an utter mystery…

*Ahh… /nods head…*

The other, unintended, humour came in the form of a tweet, during which the Prez fell asleep… probably…

covfefe time

One word was close to breaking the internet on Wednesday morning: “covfefe“.

It was an apparent typo in a tweet by US President Donald Trump, and internet users have been mocking him mercilessly.

“Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” he tweeted just after midnight, Washington time.

And he then appeared to have gone to bed, without finishing his thought or correcting his mistake.

It took six hours before he acknowledged it with a good-humoured response, and by that time a lot of people had had a lot of fun.

I did notice quite a lot of the ‘humorous’ tweeted responses were, how can I describe them… Griffinesque. However, there were some notable exceptions…

Orbs are bunk

  1. Are you thinking that this is a barometer of sorts Roob? Some sort of “Social Media Experiment” that is a shade more overt at being covert in an attempt to be more covert?

    Me too. Whatever someone is thinking when they do something, is usually quite different than what they were/are thinking later when asked “WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?!?!?!?”

    The “Covfefe The Strong/Wizard Covfefe” bit was/is hilarious btw. Nice addition.

    While I was reading that on Twitter, there was a video bar with a news story that had a banner of “Support for Trump Impeachment Grows” or something similar.

      1. Soooo…how bad will it have to get before he resigns? Or it is the opposite? Resignation for unspecified reasons in a time when smooth sailing is perceived? Will he make it to 2020 before doing so, and if so, how far? Lots to think about there.

        I know the talk of overthrowing “Obama’s” policies under the guise and guises of “legitimacy” smacks extra-stinky. 535(435 +100) + 1 + 9.

          1. True enough/I can see that. However, I was thinking more along the lines of “I did what I came here to do…finished ahead of schedule…I’m outta here!”

              1. Sure. Why not? Who better to start such a trend than “a business world mover and shaker.” Not to mention the overtones of getting term-limits either repealed for The President, or applied to The Legislature. Not to mention the effect of potentially getting future presidents off of some hit-lists irrespective of who that president is. This country of mine has publicly overthrown some governments recently where the result was that country’s leader being killed in one form or another. Also the use of drones and air-strikes via missiles and/or planes has gone way past creepy. So maybe if he starts a trend of “doing what you promised prior to being elected, then get out”…it might have the effect of limiting some foreign hate, angst and anguish of both the acute and lingering varieties. Not that his Syrian missile strikes follow a pattern indicative of reserve. But even if Trump gave the OK for those strikes, a lot of advisers and participants of all kinds had to have been in the “this is the correct course” column in order to get to OK.

                But yeah…I can see him resigning for a number of reasons. Of course I can also see him in office for 8 years. More likely four, but eight is possible if he doesn’t get frustrated by year two. If it’s possible, it’s probable. Now we come to likelihood, and the game(s) can begin. 😛

                That also means, that’s as far as I’ll go with that because I personally prefer to stop at 50/50 when we’ve already crossed it twice on both sides.
