I’ve been unfortunately very busy this week with work. Otherwise I would have had something to say about all the goings-on, pissings off, crappings out, and the ho-hum historic flameouts of the Fail To Do Anything To America president, Donald Trump. And, of course, his new bestie, sociopath Paul Ryan.
Where to begin?
But then I see this, and it catches my eye.
The Sex Pistols and Donald Trump have a lot in common, according to Johnny Rotten.
Oh I see. The Pistols’ front man wants to hop on the Uber disruption paradigm bandwagon, does he?
Rotten, whose real name is John Lydon, defended the president against the “left-wing media in America are trying to smear” Trump.
“The Donald. He’s a complicated fellow,” the rocker said on “Good Morning Britain” Monday. “As one journalist once said to me, is he the political sex pistol?”
Oh fuck me. Narcissism has been around forever.
Rotten, who holds American citizenship, agrees Trump shares the Sex Pistol’s anti-establishment qualities.
“There’s many, many problems with him as a human being but he’s not [racist] and there just might be a chance something good will come out of that situation because he terrifies politicians,” Rotten shared. “This is joy to behold for me. Dare I say, [he could be] a possible friend.”
I don’t know if this is just general lifetime stupidity or the special kind that comes with living in a rock n’ roll bubble. But Trump is about as complicated as a dog humping a vacuum. And whether it’s for the purposes of becoming president, or merely signaling to everyone what kind of swell guy he is, Trump is America’s most openly racist presidential politician since the Dixiecrats 50 years ago.
This hip “new” president is just the same old law n’ order headbasher we’ve seen for 200 years. If you doubt that, go out and ask any immigrant or Muslim. If John can ignore this sort of crap…
Russian police in riot gear arrested a leading opposition leader and hundreds of protesters in Moscow on Sunday, as the biggest protests Russia has seen in years bloomed in cities across the country.
Hours after this crackdown on what appeared to be largely peaceful gatherings, the Trump administration did not issue any statements about the arrests…
Some US lawmakers called on the Trump administration to respond to the arrests with a tough and clear message for Russia.
“Putin’s thugocracy is on full display,” Sen. Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in a Sunday statement. “The United States government cannot be silent about Russia’s crackdown on peaceful protesters. Free speech is what we’re all about and Americans expect our leaders to call out thugs who trample the basic human rights of speech, press, assembly, and protest.”
…then I don’t know what to say. I suppose I’ll just offer that if a twenty-something Muscovite John had ever had the balls to take to the streets against Vladimir Putin, the police would have ended up having a lot of fun with him in jail. And that would have been perfectly alright by Donald Trump.
