Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “Playing the Trump Tard” edition

Lordy, lordy, lordy –  will The Darnold EVER quit providing me with material?

Making fun of the right-wing nutjobs who populate Free Republic has always been easy, but these days, the limbo bar of stupidity has gotten about an inch off the ground. Also, they’re starting to run out of “conservatives” to throw under the bus.

Example?

Limbaugh: Trump’s comments on NFL ‘starting to make me nervous’
The Hill ^ | October 11, 2017

Posted on 10/12/2017, 4:36:29 AM by SMGFan

Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday voiced concerns about President Trump’s comments on NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice, saying Trump should not have the power to dictate who can kneel during the anthem.

“There’s a part of this story that’s starting to make me nervous, and it’s this: I am very uncomfortable with the president of the United States being able to dictate the behavior and power of anybody. That’s not where this should be coming from,” Limbaugh said on his show. Limbaugh said he believed Trump’s motives were “pure,” but he argued that the president’s actions were unhelpful in the broader debate on players kneeling.

“Trump is continually tweeting — I know what he’s doing, and I understand why he’s doing it, and his motives are pure; don’t misunderstand. But I don’t think that it is useful or helpful for any employee anywhere to be forced to do something because the government says they must,” he continued.

“We don’t want the president being able to demand anybody that he’s unhappy with behave in a way he requires,” Limbaugh added.

Ah – I remember when using the word “damn” on FR would get you banned without warning, with the statement “that kind of language is for DUmmies and lefties”. Now Shut The Fuck Up is acceptable.  Groovy!

Is it finally time to panic now that O’bunghole’s message of “America Sucks” has taken root in El Gordo de Oxycontino’s beloved NFL? /s

It’s called the bully pulpit. He used it effectively and it was his right.

Teddy Roosevelt coined that term when his use of the word “bully” meant “superb” or “wonderful”.
Of course, “bully” has a new meaning now, doesn’t it?
  1. a person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.
    synonyms: persecutor, oppressor, tyrant, tormentor, intimidator;

    tough guy, thug, ruffian, strong-arm;
    cyberbully
    “the school bully”
verb
verb: bully; 3rd person present: bullies; past tense: bullied; past participle: bullied; gerund or present participle: bullying
  1. 1.
    use superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone), typically to force him or her to do what one wants.
    “a local man was bullied into helping them”

More bullyshit below the fold…

I used to listen to Rush back when there wasn’t any other source of news but once the internet opened up and I discovered Free Republic I quit listening

And thinking!

He is all over the place on every issue

And even after dumping on Dope Smokers for years he gets hooked on pain medication knowing full well he is supposed to be a conservative Icon

Vanity Fair: Bannon believes Trump only has 30% chance of completing full term

Washington (CNN)Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has privately confided that he believes President Donald Trump only has a 30% chance of completing his full term, a source told Vanity Fair.

According to two of Vanity Fair’s sources with knowledge of the conversation, Bannon warned Trump several months ago that the biggest threat to his presidency is not impeachment by Congress, but the 25th Amendment — which could allow his Cabinet to vote to remove him.

I think there may be a 70% chance Trump resigns in disgust before his term ends – but only by his choice,

I think there’s a 99% chance that you’re as full of shit as a Christmas turkey.
OK – Freepers are broadsided by this one.
Bannon can do no wrong, so either this is Fake News(tm), or it’s real, and Trump is going to take his toys and go to Mar-A-Lago  home.

cfnn and “unnamed sources.”

The very definition of fake news!

Of course, this is from morons who take every Alex Jones and Breitbart rumour at face value every single day.
You guys are WAY past predictable at this point.
To: Doogle

 

Not necessarily BS even coming from CNN and without named sources. We just don’t know.

It wouldn’t surprise me if it were a real risk and that Bannon was cognizant of it as a real risk.

The new narrative is that Trump is dangerous and crazy and that the cabinet is running the country. Folks, the Deep State is beyond desperation now and they’re reduced to spreading rumors and innuendo about this administration in a desperate attempt to get the president to resign. Pretty pathetic!

So Bannon didn’t say it?
To: dowcaet

 

Even if Banbon(sic) said it, still is dangerous nonsense. President is sane and healthy. Anyone removes him saying otherwise and our democratic republic is gone so all bets are off.

Hey, this is an easy one. Call Bannon out on it. If he’s the one starting the rumor, then stuff it back down his throat.

It probably just needs charging, amirite?

Mea culpa, but I have to cut this one a bit short. In-laws, grandbabies and song rehearsing duties loom.
Next week, I’ll try to start “Obsession” before Sunday morning.

    Have you seen the NFL pre-game controversy expressed in terms of Black men and their owners concerned about their behavior in the field? What century are we in?
