Ehh, ya know, that animation is okay, but if you really want to enjoy something beautiful and life-affirming, you gotta go with “The Night the Moon Fell.”

The Night the Moon Fell

(For certain quantities of “life-affirming.”)

This is why I’m not in the White House press pool. There’s absolutely no way I would have sat there placidly in a room with black garbage bags taped over the windows without ripping them down. No fucking way.

Right, you either tear them down and get thrown out, or walk out on your own.

I can’t see the point of being a reporter and meekly allowing yourself to be bottled up and only brought out to listen to a canned presentation. It might as well be North Korea.

It was deleted, but Charles found someone else who also got a screen grab.

(Charles, as an aside, I wasn’t getting a visible warning about file size, the upload just failed. I didn’t realize I had a PNG instead of a JPG. Chrome on Windows.)

Did you drag and drop the image, or click the button and use the file locator?

That is funny. I have been to 36 foreign countries (lived in two of them for years) and never once welt unwelcome as an American.

I wonder how many foreign countries he has lived in.

“Fuck empathy” Isn’t that just Trump fans in a nutshell?

Is it wrong of me to see “Love Balls: Balls on Fire” when reading the title of the short Charles posted?

That assclown doesn’t even know what he’s talking about. I’ve travelled to plenty of places, SE Asia, China, Japan, Africa, all over Europe, and never once have I felt unwelcome.

Just a wild guess, but if he takes that charming personality with him when he travels, I’m pretty sure any bad reactions he gets have nothing to do with being American.

Precisely. It’s nothing to do with him being an American, and everything to do with him apparently being a raging asshole.

re: #29 A wild WITHAK appeared!

It looks like Chrome silently aborts the upload without any error message if the file’s too large, when you use the button instead of drag-and-drop. It never gets to my code, so there’s not much I can do about it.

“…I hope that together Mrs. Abe and I can continue to inspire our youth to enjoy the beauty around them and to restore their minds in the peacefulness of their surroundings.”

Yeah, Melania, you and the yam are such inspirations toward peacefulness for our youth. Why, between Betsy DeVos handling education and following school buses to find people to deport, I can just feel a sense of mind restoration and peace descending across the county. Barf.

(and then they’re going to have lunch at Maragaudy, because why eat a meal anywhere else but where the yam can make an extra buck.)
