Rev. Maurice Watson Denounces Trump’s Racist Comments with Red-faced Mike Pence in Pews

“A Maryland pastor on Sunday denounced President Trumps s—hole countries comment before God, his congregation and Vice President Pence.

Worshipers at the Metropolitan Baptist Church in Largo, Md., said the vice president grew visibly red-faced as the Rev. Maurice Watson called Trump out for his vulgar comments last week about Haiti and several African nations.

`I stand today as your pastor to vehemently denounce and reject any such characterizations of the nations of Africa and of our brothers and sisters in Haiti,` Watson told his congregation as Pence looked on.

`And I further say: Whoever made such a statement, whoever used such a visceral, disrespectful, dehumanizing adjective to characterize the nations of Africa, whoever said it, is wrong. And they ought to be held accountable.`”

New York Daily News

Sometimes a Christian pastor is required to minister to the least among us with the compassion and humility of Jesus Christ, and sometimes he`s called upon to speak truth to power with the vehemence and thunder of an Old Testament prophet.

If Vice President wanted to bask in the praise of like-minded evangelicals in the aftermath of Donald Trump`s blatantly racist shithole comment, he should have visited a white evangelical church.

White evangelical churches have a long history of not just tolerating racism, but practicing racism, and a racist charlatan like Trump is as welcome as a snake oil televangelist.

Mike Pence made the mistake of attending a black evangelical church shortly after his boss uttered his toxic comments, and the pastor was duty-bound to vehemently denounce the president`s racist rhetoric.

Pence`s huge Bible was no shield for the minister`s words of condemnation, and his face was red with fury and humiliation.

Sunday night Pence probably commensurated with Trump`s evangelical advisory council in a presidential circle jerk.

If only the Rev. Maurice Watson was granted an audience with Trump!

Donald Trump and Melania Trump Are an Affront to the Memory of Martin Luther King Jr.

Legislation was signed in 1983 creating a federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is observed as a national day of service in honor of the tireless crusader for peace and justice.

Unfortunately, very few people who aren`t federal employees actually get the day off, but we should still honor the memory of MLK by serving others after we get off from work.

Donald Trump, the President of the United States, didn`t set an example for the people that he serves by helping build a house for Habitat for Humanity or by serving meals in a food kitchen, he was too busy playing golf with his millionaire pals.

Melania Trump on Monday sent out a tweet acknowledging Martin Luther King Jr.`s lifetime of service, but nobody was buying it.

Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. & his service to this great country. I am honored to be First Lady of a nation that continually strives for equality & justice for all. #MLKDay

The nation may strive to create a more perfect union, but her husband`s racist rhetoric and policies are setting back our democracy decades.

If Melania really wanted to honor the memory of MLK she would poison her hubby`s covfefe.

I`d better forget the execrable Trumps if only for this holiday, so I will be in the proper state of mind to celebrate the birth of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Donald Trump Must be Removed From Office by Any Means Necessary

In the future we will have to explain to our grandchildren just how exhausted and debilitated we were after surviving the interminable first year of Donald Trump`s presidency.

In his inaugural address Trump lamented “American carnage,” his words had a prophetic quality because he has bulldozed and trampled over our democratic institutions of the free press, independent judiciary and bipartisanship leadership. Any sober-minded patriot who considers the state of the Union will see carnage everywhere. Trump didn`t end American carnage as he promised in his inaugural speech, he exhilarated the decline of all of our democratic institutions.

After a year of living under the Trump regime I am simply exhausted, Trump is like a category five hurricane that never runs of of steam because it`s powered by Satan`s infernal farts. It is impossible to ignore Trump without becoming a recluse and unplugging the TV and radio, and going offline. The only solution is to remove Trump from office BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

Trump will never pivot, he will never become presidential, and he will never reach rock bottom. His mind is a bottomless shithole of racism, vulgarity and paranoia. As a political writer for a local newspaper and a blogger I am perhaps more exhausted than most of my fellow Americans, because it`s my job to chronicle Trump`s racism and sheer insanity.

But we must not grow weary in well-doing, we must continue our fight against our shithole president and his shithole Republican enablers until he`s removed from office, and I emphasize BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

Merriam-Webster Rebukes Shithole President Donald Trump

It should come as no surprise that the Merriam-Webster Twitter account is on a mission from God to correct the word usage and typos of the most ignorant and intellectually-challenged American president in history.

Ten times Merriam-Webster has majorly trolled Donald Trump:

https://moneyish.com/ish/10-times-merriam-webster-has-majorly-trolled-donald-trump/

On the same day that the Washington Post reported that Trump called Haiti, El Salvador, and various African countries “shithole countries” while discussing immigration policy, Merriam Webster announced that their word of the day was “reprehensible.”

An almost perfect rebuke of our racist president, it would have been perfect if Merriam-Webster included an image of Trump under “reprehensible.”

Merriam-Webster defines “reprehensible” as worthy of or deserving reprehension, blame, or censure.

Throughout the presidential campaign and during his first year in office Trump has uttered blatantly racist remarks against Mexican immigrants, Mexican Americans, African Americans, Muslims and Haitians, to the extent that it renders him unfit for office.

And as we have seen with the issue of immigration Trump`s racist mindset influences policy. Trump wants to limit immigration from African, Muslim and Latin American countries.

There are a dozen reasons why Trump should be impeached, not the least of which is his bigotry and racism. Unfortunately, the shithole president won`t be impeached until the Democrats take control of Congress in the mid-term elections.

But in the meantime Congress should censure Donald Trump for his shithole remarks. Censure is the most extreme reprimand, short of impeachment, that Congress can take against the president.

Shithole President Makes Shithole Racist Statement

During a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House discussing immigration in general, and DACA in particular, President Donald Trump referred to El Salvador, Haiti and the entire continent of Africa as “shithole countries.” Trump followed that pearl of wisdom by suggesting that he`d rather see immigrants from countries like Norway.

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton, David Perdue and Lindsey Graham, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin and Republican Reps. Bob Goodlatte, Kevin McCarthy and Mario Diaz-Balart were at the meeting.

Oh to be a fly on the wall! How did these illustrious politicians react when Trump made those obscene and blatantly racist statements? I would have immediately called out the president for his inflammatory and bigoted remarks. Unless someone surreptitiously recorded the meeting we may never know, but we do know that not one of these statesmen has publicly repudiated Trump since the infamous meeting.

The silence has been deafening from the likes of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell; are they banking on the notion that America has become inured to the fact that out shithole president is a racist?

We must never accept the fact that Trump is a racist, we most condemn him every time he makes a racist comment. Trump`s racist remarks lead to racist policies which leads to violence against people of color.

Politicians must follow the example of Rep. Mia Love, a Utah Republican whose parents came to America from Haiti who issued the following statement:

This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation. The President must apologize to both the American people and the nations he so wantonly maligned.

My parents came from the shithole countries of Mexico and Venezuela, and they instilled in me a strong work ethic, a desire to educate myself, and a passion to speak out against racism. As a columnist for a local print publication, and as a blogger I will condemn Trump every time he utters a racist comment.

Time Cover Depicts Donald Trump’s Urine-Colored Hair on Fire

“Time magazine on its latest cover shows President Trump`s hair on fire to depict his first year in office.

The cover, which was designed by artist Edel Rodriguez, depicts the president screaming with his yellow hair on fire. The caption reads: “Year One.”

Rodriguez said the flames in Trump`s hair is a reference to author Michael Wolff`s new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

The Hill

Donald Trump is such a narcissist that he salivates whenever he makes the cover of a major magazine, especially Time Magazine. Trump often brags about how many times he`s appeared on the cover of Time, and until recently he even had a fake cover of Time depicting him displayed in several of his resorts.

But I don`t think the dotard will be displaying the latest cover of Time featuring him in the Oval Office. It depicts the president screaming with his urine-colored hair on fire. The image doesn`t show him below his belt, but if it did his pants would be on fire, since he`s the greatest liar ever to reside in the White House.

I find it especially delicious that the artist is a Cuban American; I can imagine Trump tossing and turning in bed, unable to sleep because a Latino has so thoroughly captured his essence.

The talented artist in 2016 depicted then-candidate Trump in “Meltdown” and “Total Meltdown” on Time covers. I eagerly anticipate one final Edel Rodgriquez Trump Time cover: The caption will be “Impeached” and the image will ashes floating in the breeze.

Donald Trump’s ‘Executive Time’ Should be Extended to 12 Hours a Day

“President Donald Trump`s work days reportedly begin as late as 11 a.m., end by 6 p.m., and often contain hours of executive time.

Trump`s private schedule, which was obtained by Axios, showed `executive time` listed from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m., when he was `in his residence, watching TV, making phone calls and tweeting.` He also had `executive time` periods scheduled throughout each day.”

Huffington Post

Like most septuagenarians Donald Trump doesn`t get much more than four of sleep a night, and like most septuagenarians he doesn`t make the most out of his waking hours. When you get that old and decrepit you consider it a productive day if you manage to put on your adult diapers without any assistance.

Most of us endure a long commute before reaching the office, but all Trump has to do is walk down the stairs to the Oval Office. Nevertheless, Trump needs three hours of executive time before his official workday begins.

In Trump`s case executive time is a synonym for farting around: He watches cable news channels, calls his billionaire pals, and tweets his fool head off. If an average hard-working stiff indulged in more than five minutes of executive time at work he`d get canned.

But don`t get me wrong, I`m not complaining, in fact I would be delighted if Trump`s executive time was extended to 12 hours per day. Trump`s administration doesn`t need their Fearless Leader`s bumbling interference, they would get a lot more accomplished if the stable genius spent all of his day in his bed, tweeting and snacking on cheese balls.

Mike Pence Missing From Michael Wolff’s Book

In Michael Wolff`s tell-all book on the Trump administration, all of the president`s close advisers, including his sons and daughter, are quoted ridiculing and criticizing him. Ivanka is even quoted mocking his pride and joy, his comb over from hell.

Everybody from the chief of staff to the butler calls Trump a variation of moron. Trump blew his top when it was reported a few months ago that his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called him a “fucking moron,” you can imagine how he feels now that it`s been revealed that all of his aides think he`s an idiot.

In the internecine warfare that is the trademark of the Trump administration, there is only one thing that everybody agrees on: Trump is a fucking moron.

However, there is one principal figure that`s missing from the salacious gossip that permeates Wolff`s expose: Vice President Mike Pence.

Pence`s main function in Trump`s White House is to look endearingly at the president, especially when the cameras are rolling. While all of Trump`s aides were spilling their guts eviscerating their Dear Leader, Pence was staring at Trump`s portrait with awe and admiration.

When Pence does speak, nothing but obsequious praise for his boss flows from his lips. Pence may develop an ulcer from biting his tongue and keeping a low profile, but he`s just biding his time until Trump is impeached and removed from office.

We may deride Pence as a sycophantic weasel, but he may have the last smile.

Twitter Has No Intentions of Banning Donald Trump

“Some Twitter users have called, repeatedly, for the social network to block President Trump’s account — but a new statement from Twitter essentially says that is not going to happen.

Twitter has previously responded to complaints about Trump’s account by saying that certain users’ tweets have a “newsworthiness” value that makes it important to stay online and inform the network’s global conversation. Its Friday statement expanded on that idea, though this latest explanation did not mention Trump by name.

“Elected world leaders play a critical role in that conversation because of their outsized impact on our society,” the post said. “Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate. It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions.”

Washington Post

There is no question that President Donald Trump’s tweets violate Twitter’s terms of service, and if he was a retired trucker firing off toxic tweets from his trailer home, instead of the Leader of the Free World he would have been permanently banned from the social media behemoth.

Every time Trump posts under vulgar and nasty tweet, especially one that might trigger a dictator to fire the first salvo of World War III, it’s tempting to demand that Twitter to block Trump’s account.

But Trump’s tweets are inherently newsworthy, not because they are pearls of wisdom, but by virtue of the fact that he’s the president of the United States.

It may not be a pleasant experience to read Trump’s stream of consciousness flatulence, but it gives us a window into his demented and devious mind.

Twitter has no intentions of blocking their most famous subscriber, they issued the flowing statement:

Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate. It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions. 

We shouldn’t expend our energy attempting to convince social media giants to block Trump, we should be exercising every fire of our being attempting to impeach him.

Donald Trump ‘Pictured Xi Jinping as a Woman’ to Help Pronounce His Name Before 2017 Summit

Michael Wolff’s expose of the Trump administration includes many explosive revelations, including Steve Bannon’s description of the Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr and a group of Russians during the 2016 election campaign as treasonous and unpatriotic.

Everything about this book speaks to the incompetency of the Trump administration, in the first place why would Trump and his aides grant a reporter with a reputation for doing hatchet jobs on the rich and famous unfettered access to the White House? That’s like hiring a convicted embezzler as a loan office at a bank, or a convicted pedophile as a kindergarten teacher.

Trump’s reaction to the book couldn’t have been more unpresidential and incompetent, the president’s lawyer sent a letter to the author and publisher demanding that they “cease and desist” from publishing the expose. Thereby ensuring that “Fire and Fury” will become the best-selling book of the year, who won’t want to read a book that the president wants to ban?

Trump’s legal action also exposes him as a thin-skinned narcissist, and as an autocrat who will go to extreme means to stifle dissent and criticism.

There are hundreds of essays being written dissecting the most explosive quotations from “Fire and Fury”, I want to highlight this nugget concerning Trump’s penchant for mispronouncing words.

Trump was prone to pronouncing China leader’s name Xi Jinping as “X-I”, the correct pronunciation is “shee.” Wolff reports that to avoid an embarrassing gaffe Trump’s aides advised him to think of the Chinese leader as a female and call him “she.” That could have easily backfired, the demented Trump could have thought that the Chinese dictator was really a woman, and he could have treated him like he treats most women, an groped his butt.

In hindsight we should all be relieved that Trump didn’t call Jinping “Mr. Pingpong” or “President Chink.”
