In Which We Get Graphic Proof That Donald Trump Hates and Fears Dogs

Politics • Views: 23,015

You may have noticed our so-called president has a certain way he talks about dogs — they’re always used as synonyms for terrible things. He calls women who criticize him “dogs,” he frequently says people were “fired like dogs” or “died like dogs,” etc. He doesn’t own a dog and we’ve never heard Trump say a single positive word about them.

So today, he held a photo op at the White House featuring Conan (who is a girl), the dog who reportedly chased down the leader of ISIS. And he went through the whole event without once touching Conan, as he and Melania stayed as far away from her as possible.

In fact, he was so afraid of Conan he says he wanted to put a muzzle on her. Somebody talked him out of that idiocy, which is too bad because it would have been more revealing that it already is.

Yeah, this is small stuff compared to all the other awful things Trump does, but there’s something extremely telling about his aversion to very good boys and very good girls like Conan.

UPDATE at 11/25/19 10:48:37 am by Charles Johnson

And… he also threatened reporters, just to make this event even more grotesque.

UPDATE at 11/25/19 5:46:55 pm by Charles Johnson

Because the Trump gang can’t do anything without it turning weird, they released a statement saying that Conan is not a good girl, she’s a good boy. Uh, I don’t know. What do you think? We report. You deicide.

Perry ran against Obama in 2012. By his own admission he violated God’s ordinance. Jokes aside, the cult like worship of Trump is getting more creepy by the day. This isn’t some Trump loving minister. This is the Secretary of the Energy declaring our President is divinely ordained. Never saw Obama’s people talk about him this way. Hell some of them even disagreed with him.

I was about to get QL’ed on the story of Matt Bevin pardoning the rapist.

rawstory.com

This reminds me of Huckabee, who pardoned Wayne DuMond, a serial rapist.

en.wikipedia.org

It appears the pardon may have occurred because the victim was a third cousin of Bill Clinton.

Then there was Huckabee’s pardon of Maurice Clemmons, who went on to murder four police officers in Parkland, Washington.

en.wikipedia.org

Matt Bevin is the same kind of shitheel as Mike Huckabee. I’m pretty sure this piece of garbage is going to surface again as a criminal.

Right, but we’re talking about people who genuinely believe that all of humanity aside from a couple families were wiped off the planet of the Earth, rather than viewing this as simply one of a number of religious parables from across the globe.

And even if you’re smart enough to believe that these stories are all related to the same flood and thus multiple pockets of humanity survived, it’s not as though we’re talking about humanity circa 2019. We’re talking communities whose numbers would barely inconvenience a local IHOP separated by hundreds or thousands of miles in an era where the horse-drawn carriage was cutting-edge.

You are correct. The main guy behind it never worked in Hollywood again. Cussler also hated it and would not allow his stories to be made in to movies for another 25 years until 2005 when we got Sahara with Matthew Mconaghey. Cussler hated that movie too.

I don’t see a problem with this. Maybe he’s cold blooded. Maybe it’s for security purposes (USSS don’t like their prinicipals walking around lightly clothed because it means they can’t be wrapped in kevlar and bullet resistant gear).

The bigger issue is the lack of direct interaction with the dog. Not so much as petting the dog. They were deathly afraid of the dog (Trump and Melania).

Is it possible that the handler said not to pet the dog? Sure, that’s possible - just as working dogs have rules for handling, that may be case here too.

3 And Rudy, dialer of backsides, lawyer of Donald, did not call upon the department of State, but went out of the city for forty days and forty nights to slayeth the demon Nepotism in the Kingdom of Ukraine. And he did many wonderful and non-embarrassing things for the King Donald. And there was no quid pro quo.

4 And the three amigos knew of the man Rudy and of his quest and they knew that Donald had called upon the Kingdom of Ukraine to cast out the demon of Nepotism and its brother Corruption. And when they knew this and how much they knew dependeth upon whom you ask.

5 And the demon Pelosi cast darkness upon King Donald and opened articles of impeachment even though there was no quid pro quo. And the man Sondland took an oath and said many things to the people. And Joaquin the bearded, brother of Julián the shaven, was there. And Jim, son of Jordan, was angry and rent his garments and, lo, the base was made to gnash its teeth.

I love animals, but I have many disabled friends with service animals, and the inviolate rule is “No Interaction!” As a result, I seldom get to interact with animals, and I don’t react outwardly to them.

He isn’t a pet lover. He’s adverse to any interactions and it shows.

Service dogs have strict rules, same as dogs you’d see law enforcement use - you can pet if you get permission, but most of the time they don’t want the dogs getting petted because they need them to stay focused on the job at hand.

About the only halfway decent thing about Raise the Titanic was the practical FX, which weren’t too bad for their time. Of course, this was before the wreck of the Titanic was found and it was discovered that the she’d broken up on the surface before her final plunge. It was assumed that she went down intact (IIRC, only one eyewitness to the sinking, Jack Thayer, correctly noted that Titanic broke up as she went down).

I think this is a little different. It seems that the girl who is now an adult has recanted her testimony claiming she was coached by her father, step mother and a counselor, and the judge in the original case has come forward and said he thinks he is innocent. I think there should probably be a retrial, but it doesn’t seem like an egregious abuse of the pardon system.

The list of legends and half-truths that were dispelled by the discovery of the wreck is likely longer than the height of the ship herself. The whole idea that she went down in one piece was not only due to the conditions of the night making visual observation difficult to impossible, but it was also part of the sensationalism about just how strong her hull really was. It’s the same reason that they thought for decades after she sank that it would have taken an enormous gash in her side to overwhelm the watertight doors, only to discover after she was found that no such gash was present and all they could find was dozens of bent plates and popped rivets.

re: #63 The Pie Overlord!

Did you expect any different from a serial adulterer and philanderer who was busy impeaching Clinton for lying about his own affair and who spent years investigating Clinton’s real estate dealings to find that he lied and obstructed justice on questions about his affair.

The same charges that Graham said would be impeachable and should remove Clinton from office to cleanse the office.

Today, of course, Newt and Graham defend Trump’s actions and ignore felony conduct - bribery, extortion, witness tampering, obstruction, wire fraud, tax fraud, mail fraud, unindicted coconspirator on same, etc.

No other president has been a named unindicted coconspirator before in federal filings - as Trump was in the Cohen case.

That should have been enough to impeach. It’s still impeachable conduct. He committed conspiracy and wire/mail fraud and likely tax fraud too.

Trump admitted to running a scam charity in NY and paid $2 million fine.

That’s not chump change. This is all impeachable conduct, but Newt and Graham both ignore it all, or excuse it away, or deflect/project like IMAX on to the Bidens - and Fox, the right wing echo chamber, and even mainstream media outlets buy this baffling bulkshit wholesale.

During the great Ice Age Meltdown 10,000 years ago, when glaciers were pulling back rapidly from the Middle East area, there were “ice dams” that would periodically give way and release trillions of gallons of retained water flooding vast areas. Folk tales passed down from generation to generation revolving around these natural disasters are probably a significant aspect of mythological stories like Noah’s Ark and the like.

Also, found bones from mammoths and dinosaurs are likely to explain mythology surrounding ancient monsters. If you arrange a mammoth skeleton with no idea what it is firsthand you can construct a cyclops out of it.

Parable about a localized flood. Similar floods occurred elsewhere in history and have similar survival stories.

Interesting idea that it may be an ancestral memory of the time when the Black sea was formed, after the bosphorus plug broke in circa 10,000 BC. Could also be an ancestral memory of the time when Doggerland was submerged, though it’s hard to imagine that would have made its way to the middle east in legend. Atlantis, possibly.

I don’t see a problem with this. Maybe he’s cold blooded. Maybe it’s for security purposes (USSS don’t like their prinicipals walking around lightly clothed because it means they can’t be wrapped in kevlar and bullet resistant gear).

The bigger issue is the lack of direct interaction with the dog. Not so much as petting the dog. They were deathly afraid of the dog (Trump and Melania).

Is it possible that the handler said not to pet the dog? Sure, that’s possible - just as working dogs have rules for handling, that may be case here too.

more likely the handler gave strict instructions to the dog not to interact with the people: “Look, I know you voted for Clinton, but don’t make this about you….”

This is an interesting concept, but like abortion and the right to privacy, I’m not sure this is one of those things where the dog really wants to catch the tire. If they were to strike down the Administrative Procedures Act as unconstitutional, it would absolutely devastate the contours of modern government. It would, among other things, drastically increase the case load of the courts (something that I suspect the justices really don’t want); it would weaken the presidency (all administrative agencies are part of the executive branch); and it would make legislating nearly impossible.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of things I don’t like about the administrative system we have. But simply scrapping it complete is stupid.

I’d prefer the administrative law judges be considered Article III judges and that the courts be moved to the judiciary proper. And I think we need more separation between those who create rules and regulations and those who enforce them.

But at the end of the day, the system works well enough most of the time.

re: #113 The Pie Overlord!

Bloomberg was a competent manager of NYC. He inherited a city reeling from 9/11 and it continued to rebound after that. Crime continued the long drop (and dropped even further after he left office and DeBlasio ended stop and frisk as official policy). Education remained a problem (DeBlasio got universal pre-k in first year of his term). Infrastructure was overlooked.

Housing was overlooked.

We saw more income disparity, but Bloomberg paved way to build out Hudson Yards where billionaire developers can build more office space, and the High Line was done on his watch too.

He didn’t do nearly enough on transit and street usage that favors pedestrians over drivers.

So he’s a manager who is competent.

That’s not enough. Not nearly enough.

The Roberts Court will be responsible for remaking the law - judicial activism from the far right, which intends to completely undo the administrative state.

Screw the FDA, EPA, Energy Dept., all of it.

And the IRS. Especially the IRS.

These fuckers want to unravel the ability of agencies to promulgate regulations, because Congress delegates the details to the agency experts, instead of trying to do that themselves. It’s done that way for a reason - because not enough folks in Congress are truly an expert in the kinds of matters that bubble up to Congress.

You’d never get a tax bill done because so much of it is left to the IRS to promulgate regulations to implement and administer the tax law that Congress couldn’t be bothered to figure out how to work. Rinse and repeat for all the other agencies.

I read what Kavanaugh wrote. You could kiss all of them goodbye: The FAA, FDA, FCC, EPA and on and on and on. According to Goresuch and Kavanaugh, those agencies would be limited to “filling in minor details” and congress would be responsible for making all regulations...meaning lobbyists would be responsible for writing them all.

One of the underrated things about 2016 is that Trump only got 46% of the vote. That means that 54% of voters went with someone else. I doubt that the Greens or Libertarians are going to be running anyone credible this time, so I suspect that it’s much more likely that the Democratic nominee ends up with a clear majority of voters. Whether or not that’s enough to tip the electoral college is another story, but I suspect it will be.

From those accounts, ERAZO and his co-conspirators stole over approximately 50 gigabytes of music, including music that had not yet been publicly released from over 20 recording artists, as well as usernames and passwords to other online accounts, among other things. ERAZO and his co-conspirators also leaked on public online forums music that had not yet been publicly released.

I have been amazed at the vitriol being directed at Senator Harris. I am going to vote for her, but the organized hate campaign from the left has left me aghast.

Harris gets almost none of the AA support, and my only guess is that they don’t feel she could keep the white vote.

re: #146 KGxvi

One of the underrated things about 2016 is that Trump only got 46% of the vote. That means that 54% of voters went with someone else. I doubt that the Greens or Libertarians are going to be running anyone credible this time, so I suspect that it’s much more likely that the Democratic nominee ends up with a clear majority of voters. Whether or not that’s enough to tip the electoral college is another story, but I suspect it will be.

And if someone actually wins a majority of the popular vote and still loses the electoral college, that might be what triggers a real movement to do away with it.

When it happens to a Republican.

And worse.

As I pointed out earlier, Biden is getting the lions share of the conservative AA vote. And the other non-AA candidates have not done a very good job of breaking through that, in part because most blacks are more conservative than the party as a whole.

I don’t want Biden, but it could be far worse.

I think Biden might experience the reverse of what Obama did in 2008. Then, Obama gained a lot of support from black voters when they saw that white people would vote for him. It’s entirely possible that Biden might lose black voter support if he underperforms in Iowa and/or New Hampshire (hell, it’s entirely possible he’ll lose support across the board in that scenario).

In November 2007, he was at 27%, December—33%, January—41% and final three polls, 48%.

“…This result is unavoidable as a matter of basic constitutional law, as the Miers court recognized more than a decade ago. Today, this Court adds that this conclusion is inescapable precisely because compulsory appearance by dint of a subpoena is a legal construct, not a political one, and per the Constitution, no one is above the law. That is to say, however busy or essential a presidential aide might be, and whatever their proximity to sensitive domestic and national-security projects, the President does not have the power to excuse him or her from taking an action that the law requires. Fifty years of say so within the Executive branch does not change that fundamental truth. Nor is the power of the Executive unfairly or improperly diminished when the Judiciary mandates adherence to the law and thus refuses to recognize a veto-like discretionary power of the President to cancel his subordinates’ legal obligations. To the contrary, when a duly authorized committee of Congress issues a valid subpoena to a current or former Executive branch official, and thereafter, a federal court determines that the subpoenaed official does, as a matter of law, have a duty to respond notwithstanding any contrary order of the President, the venerated constitutional principles that animate the structure of our government and undergird our most vital democratic institutions are preserved.”

But this decision doesn’t go to whether the witness can exert executive privilege in refusing to answer.

Taking a break from all things rancidly political in ‘merica, I’m watching a BBC thing about Boudicca and, in a piece called Boudica’s Revolt, (yeah, her name is spelled both ways) I have to take issue with the last battle where she and the Iceni are defeated as portrayed by the BBC.

BBC admits they really don’t know the exact location of that battle but insist it took place with the Romans taking up defile position with an ancient dense woods/forest at its back and rear, and that was the brilliant strategy of Paulinus.

I call bullshit.

Boudicca and her people knew the landscape and would have easily used a strategy that infiltrated the forests (no matter how dense) and put that to great use.

OK…that’s my editorial opinion in historical hot takes for the evening.

Yeah, but it’s Rod Dreher: after religious-persecution fantasies (to hear him tell it, being a religious conservative in 21st-Century America is only a small degree away from being on the wrong side of a purge during the Thirty Years’ War), it’s the sex stuff that gets his Outrage Generator really humming. Especially the gay sex stuff*. And especially especially any trans/drag/gay sex stuff. Though I’m sure that the “forcing” bit he objects to is the very existence of the above. Or at least their open mention in “decent” society.

* Yes, I know “gay”, “trans” and “drag” don’t always correlate exactly to “slavering perverted copulation in public, usually in bathrooms” - but from reading Dreher’s whines at TAC, it’s obviously foremost on his mind….

So — had lunch with a Trumpster friend. I did mostly avoid politics but then made some reference to items of humor, like the Devin Nunes cow, which he was unfamiliar with. His reaction is that people should be able to sue for libel and it’s wrong to say things that might be untrue and people often cannot get their work done because of the lies told about them (wonder who that could be///). I did not pursue this line because it would lead to an unpleasant argument.

We then got into a discussion of “OK. Boomer.” His reaction was that Boomers stood for traditional values and this comment was mocking these values. Then it segued into how much more Boomers have done for the world with technology than previous generations. I did my usual challenge that in fact the biggest transformation was over the 19th through early 20th century — far greater changes to human life: telegraph, the phone, trains, planes, electricity. I think he did accept the point I made — and my additional point that the “greatest generation” was not the Boomers.

He is a religious fanatic of the Barr persuasion, not evangelical. He showed me a youtube video that provided an animated display of the growth of various religions over the past 70+ years. It was clear that he found these trends alarming.

re: #202 Blind Frog Belly White

Moving isn’t easy, but moving isn’t impossible either. All my siblings moved, some thousands of miles, for our careers.

This isn’t new, either. America was built by people who moved, not people who stayed.

THIS. One thing I’ve learned from doing genealogy is that ancestors from both sides of the family moved every generation. One dude who lived to be 103 was born in NC, fought in the Revolutionary War, and then migrated through the South (Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas) and ended up in Texas, where he finally died in the 1850s.

Another interesting thing I learned is how people on both sides of the family followed the same paths in the same generation. It’s weird to see your ancestors move from town to town over a couple of generations along I-65 before turning and heading west along what became I-40. They were mobile because they were landless and poor.

When the economy tanked with the Great Depression, people in Arkansas and Oklahoma picked up and went all the way to California, because they could do it in a car, not a wagon. I had one of my mom’s cousins, whose family stayed in rural Oklahoma, tell me that my mother’s parents made the best decision they could when they picked up and left in 1937. The people who left were economically better off than the ones who stayed, most of whom were on some form or another of “assistance.”

Yeah, a lot of times when you try to align the total population of an area with how many people were supposedly in their army, it doesn’t make any sense.

True: up until about the 18th Century, most personnel estimates for battles were at best, educated guesses: you see it in medieval chronicles a lot, where the annalists cite armies of “50,000” or “100,000” men in various fights: even where historical records - ration lists, pay records, etc. - indicate that maintaining forces larger than about 10,000 knights/soldiers was about the limit of their logistical capabilities. And that only for the deepest-pocketed.

OK, late to the game today, but a few thoughts:

That’s a good dog.
That’s a good dog that wants to be pet.
That’s a scared douche wearing an overcoat (bulletproof) when no one else is, except Melania
While I have questioned it in the past, Pence may actually be a real human. As, he notices the good dog wants a pet, and delivers one.

re: #250 Blind Frog Belly White

Boadicea = Boudica = Boudicca, apparently.

Apparently, in classic Latin, there’s no soft ‘c’, so it would be “Bo-a-di-kee-a”, not “Bo-a-di-see-a”

Late reply because I read this site as I can
1) thanks for the song.
2) We have a husky named Boudicca Maeve. Being Americans that we are, we pronounce her name Boo Dik Ah. Also known as BooBoo Bear.
