Our President Thinks Insults Are Highly Presidential

Our President Thinks Insults Are Highly Presidential October 19, 2018

We really do have a pig for a president.

And let me further say that Stormy Daniels, the porn star former mistress of Donald Trump is no heroine in this story.

For one thing, she’s a porn star. I don’t know what went wrong in her life to lead her to devalue herself in that manner. I can only say, I’m sorry for it, as I have sympathy for any young woman (or man) who has been warped so desperately in their spirit that they would sell their bodies to the sex industry. They are more, but far too many of them fail to recognize their own worth.

For another thing, Donald Trump did not commit adultery by himself. That’s pretty much impossible. There had to be a willing second party, and in this case, it was Daniels. It’s not like she didn’t know the man was married. Everyone knew he was with wife number 3, and with a newborn son at home, as well. That’s how it is with tabloid celebrities.

In that, he’s not the only scumbucket. Daniels is pretty low, as well.

I’m not picking on Daniels. I think the same thing of anyone who engages in adultery, knowingly (leaving room for grace, for those who are in adulterous relationships because their partner lied to them about their marital status).

Daniels, at least, has acknowledged that she did a bad thing by carrying on an affair with this wretched old lecher.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, even after acknowledging that he knew and approved of the $130,000 payoff to Daniels in October 2016 by his then-attorney/fixer, Michael Cohen, is unwilling to admit he was in the wrong.

That, and he’s doubling down on his disgusting behavior.

On Tuesday, news broke of a loss in court for Daniels and her attorney, Michael Avenatti.

Daniels brought a defamation lawsuit, after Trump called her claims of being threatened to leave Trump alone by a man in 2011 “a total con job.”

In tossing out her case and ordering Daniels to pay Trump’s legal fees in the case, the judge called it “rhetorical hyperbole,” usually associated with politics.

Rather than letting it go, our president chose to tweet out a grade school taunt.

Real nice.

Let’s be clear. That kind of insulting behavior only appeals to those who read the scribbles on gas station bathroom walls and consider them to be deep thoughts.

And I’m being really generous, in regards to the intellect of Trump supporters.

Trump resulting to a dull witted insult is not a shock.

The fact that’s most cringe-worthy is that he ran the insult past people in the White House, to see how it sounded.

Well before Trump mocked Daniels’ physical appearance, he trial-ballooned the “horseface” dig privately—among White House aides, close friends, and acquaintances. One source close to Trump even recalled him saying in passing, “that f**king horseface.”

But, Mr. President, she apparently wasn’t a “horseface” when you told her she reminded you of your daughter and began an affair with her.

Advisers told him to let it go, believing that he’d do himself more harm than good by insulting Daniels, but as usual, Trump only listens to the voices in his head.

According to a White House official and two other sources who talk regularly to Trump, many people in his orbit had for months told the president it was best not to elevate Daniels by, for example, rage-tweeting about her. Trump, for his part, argued that hitting back publicly and “hard” at the porn actress would not only be right, but could prove politically advantageous.

He’s been down this road before.

In the days leading up to his first speech before the United Nations, for instance, Trump asked senior officials and friends if they thought it was a good idea for him to call North Korean leader Kim Jong Un the “rocket man” or “little rocket man” during his speech, according to two sources with knowledge of these conversations. He even told some people that others had advised him that such a move would be unwise and unnecessary, even though he thought it would be “smart” and effective branding.

Despite the chorus of official and informal advisers urging the president to forgo the moniker, Trump did it anyway, declaring before the UN General Assembly last year, “Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.” He went on to warn that the United States was ready to “totally destroy North Korea,” if it came to war.

And we all know how that turned out.

If he follows his usual pattern, we can count on Stormy Daniels being Mrs. Trump #4 in the near future.

“They love it—love it—when I fight. It’s great,” Trump told people around him in recent weeks, according to a participant in the conversation. He was referring to his conservative base voters.

He’s talking about the MAGA cultists, who have no clue about civility or competent leadership. They just want to “own the libs” and wave their red caps around.

Daniels responded to Trump’s Tuesday tweet with a bit of lowness of her own.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present your president,” Daniels tweeted in response. “In addition to his…umm…shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self-control on Twitter AGAIN! And perhaps a penchant for bestiality. Game on, Tiny.”

Not entirely helpful, but then, she’s a porn star. She’s not the president, who would normally be held to a higher standard of conduct.

But Trump…

Of course, Trump’s defenders in the media couldn’t wait to praise him for the Daniels tweet.

Former Trump campaign manager and vicious niblet, Corey Lewandowski, said on Fox Business:

“He’s a great counter-puncher, and now people will always think of her as ‘Horseface,’” he added. “Because he has this magical ability that when he gives someone a nickname, it sticks with them for the rest of their lives. Now she’ll be Stormy ‘Horseface’ Daniels forever.”

Lewandowski is pretty much useless.

And speaking of useless, Fox News personality, Jesse Watters, gave his own, warped views:

“Now all of a sudden [the left is] clutching their pearls when the president says the word ‘horseface.’ Please,” he said. “To be surprised now that Donald Trump says bad things and uses dirty nicknames about people three years later either you haven’t learned a thing or you’re just dense. This is what he does and this is how he wins.”

That’s not winning. That’s showing your true self.

So how does Trump’s evangelical supporters respond? Are we still pretending Trump is a godly prophet?

Yeah. Of course they are.

“I would naturally not condone any type of the language that would be [used] berating another human being, but yet, I do understand that [with] Stormy Daniels—clearly attention-seeking, clearly wanting to take the situation and wanting to profit from it, she is in the adult industry,” Mark Burns, a pastor who campaigned for Trump in 2016, told The Daily Beast. “‘This person came after me so now I’m gonna come after them’…That’s not what I would teach, as a pastor…But that’s his character, and it’s one of the things I believe has made him successful as a president and as a politician.”

Compromise is the death of faith, Pastor Burns. That little wink, wink, nudge, nudge approach to sin and abuse is ungodly.

Still, not all Republicans are embracing Trump’s behavior.

“To say this is unbecoming of any man, let alone the POTUS, is a vast understatement,” retiring Rep. Ryan Costello (R-PA) posted to Twitter. “And to say this enables teenage boys to feel they have a license to refer to girls [with] such names is obvious. It’s all very embarrassing.”

Yes it is, but don’t look for the president to clean up his act. He hasn’t been given any reason to.

The president, by his own words, couldn’t care less if Costello and others find it embarrassing. In an interview with the Associated Press, when asked if his conduct was appropriate, Trump replied, “You know what? You can take it any way you want.”

Thanks. I will.

You’re a pig. You have no morals. You’re dumb as a stump and you had better enjoy this brief moment of victory, because it will prove to be hollow. In the end, there will be justice and your end will correspond to the way you have lived your godless, hateful life.

Did I leave anything out?

    Thanks Susan. You said it all perfectly. Once again, I agree with you 100%.

  • GotMyLoveGlassesOn

    Thank you, Ellen.

  • kenofken

    All that’s left for this country to decide is who will be the one to go to Arlington and tell the boys that the nation they sacrificed all for is now a white trash reality show.

  • JASmius

    Does anybody seriously believe that Trump was ever looking at Stormy Daniels’ face?

  • AJ

    Okay, so, I have a different take and a different question: We were being told that there were “adults” behind Trump who, though not voted in themselves, were “helping” the Constitution out by running block and tackle for Trump, keeping him in a position of power (getting a “conservative” agenda through) but also keeping him from pushing detrimental buttons or signing erroneous documents. So, um, at what point do these unelected anonymous people behind Trump step in and STOP him from doing anymore damage to our country? I mean, this unelected group of conservatives, who are helping to get good policy(ies) past Trump, don’t seem able to do their [unelected] job! They claim they can stop him from pushing buttons or signing documents, but apparently they can’t stop him from this sort of uselessly pathetic puerile behavior (to say nothing of his behavior with North Korea or Russia and their leaders)! Yet they don’t want to unseat the man because, Heaven forbid, they would lose their OWN power and no longer be able to “control” things behind the scenes.

    Can we PLEASE just end this embarrassment once and for all and impeach the man? I’m no fan of Pence (at all!), but Trump is a waste of space (not to mention time and energy) and that unelected group behind him isn’t much better.

    And a word of advice to Trump: Invest in a mirror. You are one of the last people on earth who should be casting stones at another for being unattractive!

    Oh, and, Susan, I don’t know if you’re in charge of the emojis (above), but if there were one for Disgusted, I’d choose it. (Am I the only person who thinks there’s something seriously sick and wrong with Trump’s, um, fascination (for lack of a better word) with his own daughter?)

  • Brian Orion

    Susan, normally I agree with you but please don’t slander porcines by comparing them to the orange orangutan.

  • Barros Serrano

    If I were younger and not busy working all the time I’d love to make a huge sign and stand in front of the White House with it:

    TRUMP! you’re OLD, you’re FAT, you’re UGLY, you’re ORANGE!
    YOU’re NOT A TEN!!!

    He’d probably lose his mind and jump out of the window.
