1. Said this yesterday about Vance’s shitty comment but bears repeating:

My mom, who was of that generation, was totally accepting of a trans family member. Guess that answers Vance’s question.

2. Since when do batteries cause electrocution? Would someone please give Trump a hairdryer to take into the bathtub? That might explain the difference to him.

Expand full comment

I love that idea!! Once the bathtub is filled, hand him the blow dryer & then yell “Donald!! A shark is coming”

Supposedly he’s terrified of sharks

Expand full comment

Battery. Shark. Whichever gets the job done most efficiently.

Expand full comment

Whoa, wait. Didn't he say a couple of months ago that once a battery gets wet, it's dead? So how can it electrocute him if the water deactivated it? Why am I asking questions as if Trump's brain hasn't glitched a thousand time between that statement and this weekend?

Expand full comment

Back then he thought magnets were inactivated if they got wet. Now he thinks a DC battery will electrocute you if submerged. He just keeps 'em comin'!

What I cannot get over is as Trump is saying he prefers electrocution to the shark, some guy behind him is nodding in agreement and looking over at a friend who is nodding in agreement too. Are they even having anything between their ears. Or picturing the chances of surviving electrocution in the water, over a shark attack.

Trump needs to go back to 1st and second grade. He also needs to learn about run on sentences.

Expand full comment

That's assuming that he went to first and second grade in the first place.

Expand full comment

I'm sure he did, but he probably wasn't paying attention. Same at Whaton. How do you graduate from Wharton and still be an economic illiterate?

Expand full comment

He didn't graduate from the Wharton School of Business - he took a few classes there (maybe?) while "earning" a degree at University of Pennsylvania. As for grade school, I think that was the time when he hit a music teacher (a woman, of course), in the face. He was born a stupid sociopath.

Expand full comment

And his parents sent him to military school after that. Hence, the I know more than the Generals…

Expand full comment

Military school for someone his age is otherwise known as "reform school" for the sociopathic children of wealth.

No, he went to NY Military Academy for high school--it a high school you send your kid to when you are rich and you don't know how to handle the juvenile delinquent!

He did not graduate from Wharton (the School of Business). He never was admitted to the Wharton School of Business. He went to Fordham, then transferred to U. Penn, where he studied the hotel business or something like that; the undergraduate division that offers those courses is called "Wharton College" (like, for example at Cal Berkeley, there's a "College of Engineering," a "College of Letters and Science" and so forth). All undergraduate. And I am literally certain that he paid other students to do his work & take his tests. I believe one of his former professors was quoted as saying he was "the stupidest student he had ever had." So of course, his endless claim that he "went to Wharton" is like me claiming I have a degree from Harvard because I once walked through Harvard Yard.

His niece said that his sister Mary did all of his homework for him.

I remember that quote. Trump has llved up to that judgment.

I think I read an article about this a couple years ago. The bottom line was his daddy paid for his degree, I was not surprised. He truly is stupid; and, as we all know, stupidity cannot be fixed.

He got an undergraduate degree from Wharton, not an MBA. One of his professors there said he was the dumbest student he'd ever had in his entire teaching career! Fred, Sr. bought him his degree!

I'm sure they had to pay extra tuition to take him.

How about learning about run-on, nonsensical paragraphs? He’s a perfect example of a wasted mind.

Learning about? He INVENTED them! Along with electricity and boats. Nobody even knew about sharks until he brought them up. The best sharks.

That stable genius who can say the letters M, I and T in their proper sequence (to prove he's a stable genius) might want to learn the difference between the letters AC and DC. Electrocution! Jesus......

Expand full comment

His MAGA supporters don’t know the difference either

Expand full comment

But does he know what the letters stand for? He never went to MIT and just because an uncle did doesn’t make him smart, he’s as dumb as that rag on his head . I wonder if he goes to jail, will they allow him to keep his hair ?

Ooh, he needs a buzz !

Expand full comment

Direct current can electrocute.

Expand full comment

Battery voltage not nearly high enough to disperse significant current into a body of water.

Expand full comment

It’s amperage that matters, not voltage

Expand full comment

Of course. Voltage is the potential energy that can be generated, current is the actual "flow" of that energy, and the amount of current depends on the voltage and the system resistance (Ohm's law). For a current (amperage) high enough to interfere with the electrical conduction of a heart, the voltage has to be significant because the resistance in our skin is quite high. It's lower when wet, but then you have to consider the resistance of each millimeter of water between a still functioning battery and the object. Bottom line : trump is talking about batteries. This scenario is absurd.

Expand full comment

It’s jaw-dropping absurd

Expand full comment

My father was repair officer on a sub-tender. I saw 1.5 v batteries as big as oil drums. They were extremely dangerous

Expand full comment

JD Vance is smarter than Donald. But not by much. He dishonors himself by insulting the honorable. Biden was doing his job. Attacking fascism and upholding freedom.

Wonder what Eisenhower would say about JD's and Donald's insults of the President of the United States. Indefensible! Let's remind the MAGAs that Dwight D Eisenhower, Supreme General of the Armed Forces and President of the United States. And Leader of the GOP from 1952 to 1960. Was ANTIFA.

What kind of boat has he been on?? Batteries that sink. Deep batteries. Batteries that electrocute people.

I was amazed that he somehow “knew” that water conducts electricity… no no no. I think I am attributing his “knowing” this to his having real info. It was random that this made sense. One phrase, a few words, out of his outpouring of pre-compost verbal spewage

SF airport and United (if that’s what you flew) is a blackhole of suckiness. I could regale you about flights from SFO to Reno (last leg of many flights home) cancelled or delayed, as we wait hour-by-hour to see if we are flying home. Easier to just rent a car and drive over the Sierra, while luggage goes on its merry way to somewhere sometime. A cancelled flight out of SFO meant that my husband missed his conference in Germany where he was scheduled to speak. So he cancelled the rest of his flight and tried to book a flight home. Yeah? That’ll be $495 for a 60-minute flight. Arguments ensued.

One is the Looney Toons' worst villain, unfettered by time and space, appearing everywhere from Ancient Rome to Arabia to the Old West. The other, Foghorn, is a wrathful six foot tall rooster based on a since-forgotten southern senator character on the Fred Allen radio show, name of Senator Claghorn--even stealing his tagline, "That's a joke, son!" Foghorn is considered a sort of saint by those pestered by their neighbors' yapping dogs. He not only beats the dog, he sings a calypso song about beating the dog on the way to beat the dog.

My supposed BFF of 36 years unceremoniously dumped me because I'm not a MAGAt. It's okay because I actually prefer my friends who aren't fascists.

Expand full comment

My wife ran into a MAGA family when both their cars were stuck on a highway owing to a truck mishap. No one talked politics, and my wife said they were nice and helpful to another motorist who was having a problem. So I have to believe that the ones who aren't armed thugs are perfectly ordinary people who don't know very much and have, as someone just said, become indoctrinated into a cult.

I think the Trump word salads put them in a trance for the duration of that day. The effect is wearing off, though, as seen by the footage lately of people leaving all the venues mid-speech.

Yes, thank you. I see a fair amount of talk about "trailer trash" MAGA (kind of classist btw), but I can say with certainty that a lot of the support for Trump in the South is from the rich white suburbs where people are unfortunately watching Fox News all day and are scared about everything.

The RNC advertised on Craigslist for people to attend the "rally" in Vegas. They were to wear a T-shirt and carry a sign. A bonus of $50 was promised if they ended up on TV.

At the "rally" Trump allegedly told the crowd "I don't care about you. All I want is your vote". He does tell the truth sometimes, by accident.

The GOP has sunk below the surface and even the sharks don't want them. Trump is not any advertisement for growing old gracefully. Spontaneous Human Combustion is too simple a fate for him.

So sorry about the travel hell you and the missus have been through! Good grief.

Trump continues to expound on the "battery underwater will electrocute me" story and it's a beauty. I'm wondering if his aides have informed him that's not how it works and he just doesn't listen or if they are afraid to tell him he's full of shit.

Standing in the 105 degree heat babbling for hours must have melted his terminals.

I sooooo hope that the debates happen and more people than the die hards and paid actors that go to his rallies will see how far gone he is. Highly edited interviews with his handlers around are not the Trump we see at these lovefests.

Also, the fact that he gets to "phone in" his pre-sentencing interview is another example of our two-tiered justice system, I'd bet the other felons in New York don't get this privelege.
