MMMM BAHH BA YAHHH: And That Folks Is How It's Done


Well we sure do love us the dazzling Democratic trolling that is the "Stable Genius Act" - or as some would have it, the "Like, Very Stable Genius Act" - unveiled Tuesday by Pennsylvania Rep. Brendan Boyle. An artful acronym for the "Standardizing Testing and Accountability Before Large Elections Giving Electors Necessary Information for Unobstructed Selection Act," the bill would require all presidential candidates to undergo a medical exam under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of the Navy, and disclose the results before an election. "The President believes he is a 'stable genius.' I do not," said Boyle, referring to Drump's now-famous, wildly implausible claim of psychological and intellectual prowess in response to "Fire and Fury" reports that virtually everyone in the White House thinks he's a moron. Citing "Trump’s reckless, erratic behavior," Boyle urged that Americans "do all we can to ensure a situation like this does not arise again."

Amen to that, especially since we're daily flooded by sordid evidence that belies the once-upon-a-time-claim by his gonzo doctor that Trump is "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency." This week, two of his grotesque, oblivious offspring - apple/tree - showed off their cognitive dissonance skills to keep up the demented momentum. Ivanka, aka Daddy's Little Monster, praised Oprah Winfrey's speech and urged us all to "stand together and say #Time'sUp"; she evidently didn't  realize the speech was about her slimy father and her own complicity, though a furious Twitter reminded her: "You can't sit with us." Then Donny Jr., dumb as a stump, praised his daddy's standing up for the National Anthem - "And that folks is how it’s done...Just show some respect for your country" - unlike all those uppity black NFL players who protest nonsense like black people being gunned down in the street by racist police and what's their problem; but he evidently didn't realize daddy didn't know the words to said anthem he's been wielding for months like a weaponized dog-whistle. But not to worry: both Bad Lip Reading and Peter Serafemyghkiv took care of it. 

"Beautiful Tanya, your little feet were so thin. Hmm mmm USA. Ah la hoopa von la brompf." - The Star-Spangled Banner, words by Donald Trump.
