#100WW — A Real Treat

“You’re in for a treat today,” Jeremy told his twin sons.

“It’s freezing,” Lenny complained as the three approached the Louvre.

“Who knew it snowed in Paris?” John said.

“This is stunning,” Jeremy said. “See how the sun is reflecting off the glass pyramid onto the museum’s facade? I need to get a picture.”

“Come on, Dad,” Lenny pleaded. “I’m shivering.”

“Fine,” Jeremy said. “Go inside boys. I’ll be there in a minute.”

“Some treat, huh?” John said to his twin.

“Yeah,” said Lenny. “Taking us to the Moulin Rouge to see those French can-can dancers. That would be a treat.”

One-Liner Wednesday — Pissing Contest

E11DB8B6-1B84-40CB-92A9-B6586956DAE5“Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”

Donald J. Trump from his Twitter account

Yesterday, after I posted this screed about yet another delusional, self-serving tweet from Donald Trump, I decided that enough was enough and that I was going to stop posting on my blog about the moron in the Oval Office.

But you know what they say about best laid plans and good intentions, right?

I recall how shocked most of us were during the 2016 presidential primaries when Florida senator Marco Rubio suggested that Trump had small hands for his height. “And you know what they say about guys with small hands,” Rubio said with a smile, prompting stunned laughter from the crowd.

Hmm, Marco, what do they say about men with small hands?

Trump responded to Rubio’s assertion during a televised debate of the GOP candidates, “And he referred to my hands, ‘if they’re small, something else must be small.’ I guarantee you there’s no problem, I guarantee it.”

Yikes! Candidates for the office of President of the United States making obvious allusions to penis size.

Now that Donald Trump is president, he’s upped his Freudian game about penis size comparisons with this tweet late yesterday afternoon from our Commander-in-Chief.
img_0369Trump’s tweet that his “nuclear button” is “much bigger & more powerful” than Kim Jong-un’s would be funny if these were two adolescent kids having a pissing contest behind the high school gymnasium.

But these are two world leaders, each of whom has at his fingertips the firepower to kill millions of people.

So when I heard about Trump’s latest tweet, I couldn’t stop myself from writing this post and wondering when action will be taken to remove this clearly unstable lunatic from office before his fragile male ego destroys the planet.

My best laid plans to stop posting about Donald Trump have gone awry.
