Outrage! Hallmark Channel Pulls Zola Ad Featuring Brides Kissing

“Under pressure from a conservative advocacy group, The Hallmark Channel has pulled ads for a wedding-planning website that featured two brides kissing at the altar. The family-friendly network — which is in the midst of its heavily watched holiday programming — removed the ads because the controversy was a distraction, a spokesperson said in an interview Saturday.”

When you care enough to send the very best, you send a Hallmark card. A dollar store greeting card may suffice for an acquaintance, but when you want to commemorate a special day for a close friend or a family member the occasion demands the quality and excellence denoted by a Hallmark card.

There’s a Hallmark card for every occasion and holiday, but the next time a same-sex couple that I know is getting married, I will send them an American Greetings card, the world’s second largest greeting card producer behind Hallmark Cards.

The Hallmark Channel is a family-friendly cable network, and what can be more family friendly than a commercial featuring two beautiful brides kissing at the altar? Any marriage, whether opposite sex or same-sex, is an expression of love, commitment and trust, which should be the foundation of any family-oriented network.

I am outraged by the Hallmark Channel’s anti-family decision to pull the wholesome Zola ad, and I will register my displeasure by boycotting the Hallmark brand.


Donald Trump Says That He Dreams About Mayor Pete

“Donald Trump said this week that he dreams about out Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg — and Buttigieg finds that pretty unsettling.

‘I mean, you have Alfred E. Neuman who’s running, who’s like this guy?’ Trump said at a campaign rally in Hershey, Pa., Tuesday night. Neuman is the big-eared, grinning, goofy-looking mascot of Mad magazine. ‘This guy Buttigieg, Boot-edge-edge. Can you believe he’s doing well? He’s like the leading fundraiser. I dream about him! It’s true. No, Boot-edge-edge!'”

The Advocate

It’s a great compliment when lovers or friends tell you that they dream about you, it means that you’ve made such a positive impact on their lives and they trust you so much that you inhabit their minds when they’re in their most vulnerable state. It could be argued that when your lover tells you that she dreams about you, it means even more than when she declares that she loves you.

But it’s unsettling to say the least when a powerful and evil man tells you that he dreams about you. When a lover tells you that she dreams about you it’s a comforting and heartwarming thought, but when a corrupt and malevolent entity tells you that he dreams about you, it’s a threat.

Mayor Pete has my sympathies, I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if the stable genius publicly declared that he dreams about me. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist or a psychiatrist to deduce that the primal urges of sex and power dominate Trump’s dreams. Poor Pete is probably wondering if the physically hideous president is having wet dreams about him, or if he is dreaming about destroying him.

In an interview with the Washington Post Mayor Pete responded to Trump’s disturbing tweet:

“I will admit it did bother me when he says he dreams about me. I don’t know what goes on in this president’s dreams, but I’m sure I want absolutely nothing to do with them.”

I hope Trump’s nightmare comes true and Buttigieg wins the Democratic presidential race, the intelligent, articulate, spiritual and young Mayor of South Bend, Indiana would crush the idiotic, unintelligible, immoral and decrepit illegitimate President of the United States.

Creepy Old Donald Trump Attacks Teen Climate Change Activist Greta Thunberg, Again

President Donald Trump has 60+ million Twitter followers, and when he attacks an individual on his favorite social media platform, whether it’s a celebrity, a politician, a judge or a teen climate change activist many of his followers will channel his cruelty and pile on.

The stable genius blasted Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old girl with Asperger’s syndrome who has rallied efforts at fighting climate change around the world with these loathsome words on Twitter:

“Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend.” “Chill Greta, Chill,” the irrational and hot-tempered Leader of the Free World advised the child activist.

Donald Trump has complained in prior years when Time magazine failed to select him as “The Person of the Year”, therefore he was furious when the prestigious publication snubbed the climate change denier-in-chief and picked a teen girl climate change activist for the honor.

Greta didn’t respond to Trump’s nasty tweet in stereotypical teen fashion by tweeting:

Oh just shut your trap you ugly orange fat toad!

Instead she gently trolled him by changing her Twitter bio to read:

“A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”

This isn’t the first time Trump has attacked Greta on Twitter, doesn’t he realize how unseemly it is for a 73-year-old man to be so fixated on a young girl?

Of course Trump was again projecting, he’s the cruel bastard with anger management issues, and the whole world wishes he would chill the hell out and stop spreading hate on Twitter.

Not Exactly a News Flash: Joe Biden is Too Old to be President

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s top advisers and prominent Democrats outside the Biden campaign have recently revived a long-running debate whether Biden should publicly pledge to serve only one term, with Biden himself signaling to aides that he would serve only a single term.

While the option of making a public pledge remains available, Biden has for now settled on an alternative strategy: quietly indicating that he will almost certainly not run for a second term while declining to make a promise that he and his advisers fear could turn him into a lame duck and sap him of his political capital.”


The President of the United States is a septuagenarian whose mental decline has now matched his moral depravity which makes him unpredictable, unreliable and untrustworthy. You don’t need to be a physician or a psychiatrist to diagnose Trump as a dangerous and demented old fool, even a mad dictator like Kim Jong Un diagnosed Trump’s erratic behavior as the “dotage of a dotard.”

The leading Democratic presidential candidates are septuagenarians: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden and Mike Bloomberg. The 2020 presidential race makes an excellent premise for a horror flick: The Attack of the Senile Septuagenarians!!

Seventy isn’t the the new 30, 40 or 50. A 70-year-old person has one foot in the grave, the other one on a banana peel, and he’s waving his hands in the air because he just doesn’t care about anything anymore.

The leading Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, is 77 and if he becomes president he would run for reelection as an octogenarian. At 77 Biden has trouble keeping his dentures in place, his hands from groping young girls, and gaffes from slipping out. Biden at 80 would make the scariest monster movie in cinematic history.

I can understand why Biden is considering publicly announcing that he won’t run for a second term. But making such a promise would backfire, it only highlights his old age and it would make him a lame duck from day one.

What Biden should be considering is dropping out of the race because of his advanced age. In Biden we have the toxic mix of white privilege and senior citizen entitlement. Biden is so old he’s not even a Baby Boomer, he’s a pre-Boomer old fart.

Biden is an old fart whose stench has lingered past its expiration date! We need a breath of fresh air, a Mayor Pete or a Cory Booker!

Trump’s Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham Tweets: ‘Let’s be Honest’

Let’s be honest: the press are invited into roundtables & events on specific topics almost every day – and our guests have to “sit there” as they shout questions on subjects completely unrelated to the event at hand. As always, the hypocrisy here is stark.

Stephanie Grisham

Only political junkies are aware that Stephanie Grisham is the White House press secretary, considering she’s never held a single press briefing. That’s like a fire fighter who’s never put out a fire, or rescued a kitten stuck in a tree.

Donald Trump is the liar-in-chief, according to the Washington Post he has lied over 13,000 times since assuming office. All administration officials, and especially the White House press secretary whose job it is to spin Trump’s idiotic and nonsensical tweets and comments, are forced to lie in order to make him seem halfway rational.

No Trump administration official should ever preface his or her comments by saying, “Let’s be honest.” Honesty is a foreign concept to them, they wouldn’t know the truth if it bit them in the butt.

Let’s be honest, you have never invited the press to a White House press briefing and you should be ashamed to cash your paycheck.

Let’s be honest, your perpetually grouchy disposition makes the colicky Sarah Huckabee seem like Ms. Sunshine.

Let’s be honest indeed! Admit that Trump is a lying know-nothing buffoon, and you have the most thankless job in the world.

Why Should We Have to Choose Between Two Senile Septuagenarians? To Hell With Trump and Biden!

People who haven’t been paying close attention to the Democratic presidential race remember Joe Biden as the goofy, gaffe prone and affable career politician who played the part of an elder stateman in contrast to the vibrant and young Barack Obama.

Most of us would have enjoyed drinking a beer and discussing 1970 American muscle cars with circa 2008 Biden, but the current iteration of Biden bears little resemblance to the Biden who palled around with Obama.

Biden’s behavior in this primary has been bizarre, erratic, disturbing and dare I say it, Trumpian? The deer in the headlights Biden is a disaster on the debate stage: he meanders into bizarre tangents, struggles to keep his dentures in place, and fights an epic battle to keep from stuttering. When he interacts with voters he veers from creepily familiar to wildly aggressive.

What do you do with the crazy uncle in the attic when you have guests over for dinner? You either tie him to his bed or pray that he won’t come down and spoil the festivities. Is it any wonder that Biden’s handlers have severely limited his campaign appearances and restricted his access to the press?

The electorate is desperate for a return to normalcy and respectability after four years of the chaos, corruption, and criminality of the Trump administration. Biden is as far from normalcy and respectability as a wilted head of cabbage and stale crackers are from a prime steak and lobster dinner. Voters aren’t going to exchange one weird-ass septuagenarian for another weird-ass septuagenarian.

Would You Buy a MAGA Pride T-Shirt From the Trump/Pence Campaign Web Site?

List of items I would expect to be available at the Trump/Pence campaign web site:

Bibles signed by their false Messiah, Donald Trump Extra-large Depend adult diapers, “For the senior citizen in your life who wants to dress just like Trump.”

MAGA hats, “For informal occasions when a KKK hood isn’t required.”

American flag thong bikini, “For the patriot who wishes to protest godless liberals who desecrate and burn the flag.”

One thing I would not expect to find for sale is a Make America Great Again Pride T-Shirt in rainbow letters. It’s advertised under the caption: Show your support for the LGBT community and the 45th President with this exclusive Make America Great Again Pride T-Shirt.

A recent Out/YouGov poll found that 93% of LGBTQ people disapprove of the virulently anti-gay Trump administration. I suspect they’re not going to sell out of this special edition Make America Great Again T-Shirt.

A Pride T-Shirt at the Trump/Pence campaign web site is as incongruous as a rainbow-colored swastika at a Nazi web site.

The day I buy a Pride shirt at the Trump/Pence web site is the same day I will vote to reelect Trump, in other words when hell freezes over.

White Evangelicals Besotted With the Ultimate Narcissist, Donald Trump

At its mythic heart, narcissism is a story of disappointment. The ancient source is the Greek tale of Narcissus, a beautiful young boy who falls in love with his reflection in a pool. Captivated with his beguiling image, Narcissus vows never to leave the object of his desire. But the reflection—forever outside his embrace—fails to reciprocate, and as a result Narcissus melts away (in one version of the story), a victim of the passion burning inside of him. The lover’s inconsolable disappointment is that he cannot consummate his love for the reflection, his love for himself.

The Atlantic

Donald Trump is neither young nor handsome, he is a septuagenarian with an orange-tinged face whose most remarkable feature is a mouth that bears an uncanny resemblance to a sphincter.

However like Narcissus of Greek mythology Trump has fallen in love with his own reflection. When the orange troll asks the Magic Mirror, “Who is the fairest of them all”, like a true Trump sycophant the Magic Mirror answers:

“Sir you are the fairest of them all. You have the visage of a Greek god! Your powerful mighty hands hint at the awesome size of your phallus and your head is twice the size of a mere mortal for it houses a humongous brain.

Narcissists have many acquaintances but few friends. They are glib, witty, and charming, and they are always the life of the party. But life isn’t a party and narcissists soon wear out their welcome if you have to interact with them every day at work or at home.

Trump’s biographers agree that he has few, if any friends, but many acquaintances who are attracted by his power, wealth and outrageous behavior.

But Trump’s narcissism hasn’t worn thin with his base, there isn’t an unconstitutional policy, immoral behavior, vulgar tweet or vain boast that they won’t justify, excuse or forgive. This is incomprehensible and frustrating to the normal person who was sick and tired of Trump’s mean tweets, racist comments, and self-centered behavior after just a few weeks in office.

Why haven’t Trump’s evangelical supporters lost faith in him? These true believers would be repulsed by his vulgarity, stupidity and grotesqueness if he was a house guest for a week, but from afar the obese buffoon looks like a dashing and fearless slayer of liberals and godless heathen who has been anointed by God to save White America.

If there’s a God in heaven white evangelicals who support Trump will spend eternity in hell with their beloved false God.

Video Shows World Leaders Mocking Donald Trump

You can always count on there being a Donald Trump tweet that contradicts his current stand on an issue or that exposes him as an idiot.

In 2014 Trump dissed President Barack Obama by tweeting:
“We need a President who isn’t a laughing stock to the entire World. We need a truly great leader, a genius at strategy and winning. Respect.”

How I yearn for a president like Obama who inspired hope and confidence in the homeland with his temperate words and prudent polices, and who inspired respect and admiration in the world with his geopolitical expertise and diplomatic skills.

A widely circulated video showing world leaders mocking the American president roiled the NATO summit; Trump was so humiliated that he abruptly canceled a planned news conference at the summit’s conclusion. It’s not the first time that the colicky man baby has stalked angrily away from a meeting of U.S allies. A year and a half ago, he fled a meeting of the Group of Seven in Quebec, because the allied leaders disagreed vehemently with him on the subjects of climate change and tariffs.

Trump’s 2014 tweet didn’t apply to Obama, but boy does it apply to the clown currently residing in the White House. Trump is a laughingstock to the entire world, American allies like French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau mock him, and adversaries like Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un manipulate him.

If Trump isn’t impeached by the House and removed from office by the Senate, it’s incumbent upon the electorate to kick this clown to the curb. We must restore dignity to the White House, and once again command respect in the world


New Poll Shows Majority of Republicans Think Donald Trump is a Better President Than Abraham Lincoln

An Economist/YouGov poll conducted just before Thanksgiving found that a majority of Republicans (53%) think Donald Trump is a better president than the first Republican elected to that position, Abraham Lincoln.

You don’t have to be a history major or a Lincoln biographer to deduce that even mentioning Trump in the same breath as Lincoln is an insult to the 16th president of the United States.

I won’t waste any time enumerating the hundreds, if not thousands of reasons, why Lincoln is a superior president to Trump, because I assume that my readers aren’t idiots.

Only a brainwashed cult member, that is to say a Republican, would argue that Trump is a better president than the Great Emancipator. Trump supporters are akin to North Koreans who believe that their Dear Leader had a supernatural birth, invented the hamburger, and has never used a toilet.

Let me just focus on Lincoln and Trump’s relationship to the truth: Lincoln had such a reputation for honesty that one of his nicknames was “Honest Abe”, contrast that to Trump who according to the Washington Post has lied over 12,000 times since assuming office.

And how can you possibly compare the eloquence of the writer of the Gettysburg Address to the tweeter-in-chief who tweets at a third-grade level? Forgive me, I promised I wouldn’t list the reasons why Lincoln is a better president than Trump.

The most important fact that we can glean from the Economist poll is that it’s a waste of time debating Trump supporters on any political issue. How can you possibly hold an intelligent conversation with a moron who thinks that the stable genius is a better president than The Liberator?
