Asked to explain why they hate Jews, anti-Semites contradict themselves. Jews are always showing off; they are hermetic and secretive. They will not assimilate; they assimilate only too well. They are too religious; they are too materialistic, and a threat to religion. They are uncultured; they have too much culture. They avoid manual work; they work too hard. They are miserly; they are ostentatious spenders. They are inveterate capitalists; they are born Communists. And so on.

Any guesses what Donny will do first on Day 1?

(If his own words are to believed, he won't do anything until day 4. He said in a recent interview that he would immediately start "signing stuff" on Monday, but he'll be President on Friday.)

Democrats and African Americas all got disappointed with Obama rather quickly.

Alt-righters are already start feeling betrayed by Trump.
Making big promises means big led-downs.

I am worried about what Trump will do if he realizes that nothing is going the way he wants it.

This is going to be an ongoing issue with his Trumpiness for the next four years:

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/pence-clarifies-what-trump-meant-when-he-said-insurance-for-all

The Donald will say or tweet something that will alarm the whackadoodles in his party and Pence or Conway will have to "clarify" what the orange emperor really meant.

Four years? :cry2: But, it seems the embodiment of the average Joe, "If I were president, I would...!" has been finding out he's in it waaayyyy over his head, as have the puppet masters. Will they continue putting up with a guy who tweets "I made potty!" in the early morning hours?

I see a staffer specifically assigned to monitor the Donald's tweeting activity so that Conway is alerted when the Donald says something stupid.

I'm now reading that his imperial majesty will start Friday afternoon. Apparently he can't wait to get started signing things with his magical pen.

So I was watching the inauguration at a pub with the morning drinkers crowd. Not many people there. I had a cranberry juice like Leo DiCaprio in The Departed. About five minutes passed before I had a great idea: right as Melania Trump came out, I ran over to the Jukebox, slid in a few coins and put on "Gold Digger" by Kanye West. The whole pub roared with laughter - they got the message!

PS: WTF was Kellyanne Conway wearing?

But then who monitors Conway for her wild insanity? Samantha Bee referred to her recently as Trump's "Spokes-cobra."

Anonymous sez that if Assange, Wikileaks, the alt-right, and RT can {!#%@} things up, so can they: "@realDonaldTrump you have financial and personal ties with Russian mobsters, child traffickers, and money launderers. This isn't the 80's any longer, information doesn't vanish, it is all out there. You are going to regret the next 4 years. We could care less about Democrats attacking you @realDonaldTrump, the fact of the matter is, you are implicated in some really heavy {!#%@}."

Trump will regret the next 4 years? What about us, for crissakes?!?!?!

Estimates are that 10,000 people attended the 3 Doors Down/Toby Keith extravaganza - vs 400,000 for Obama's pre-inauguration concert. Which assures that we'll be hearing about how yuuuuuge the crowds are for all this, the biggest ever, blah blah blah. I am so sick of this orange clown. Already.
