The Queen of Soul has died and instead of recognizing the passing of a national icon...

...Chump instead continues his rantings and ravings against the so-called fake news.

As of this writing, not a peep or a tweet about Aretha.

For fucks sake, even Fux News ran a fairly lengthy tribute to her this morning...

2. No one gives a flying fuck

It will be some fake shit anyway.
Today belongs to Aretha, her family friends and fans.
Aretha sang at three inaugurations -for Carter, Clinton and Obama.

Fuck Don the Con!

11. Every time they show Obama wiping that tear from his face at the Kennedy Center

I think he speaks for America under the Con. We're all crying.

3. I'm not sure I want that idiot commenting on the passing of Aretha.

He would no doubt call her a 'dog' or a 'low IQ person'.

Fuck that asshole.

8. What is it you are angry about?

 


Seriously.

Is there some part of you which needs emotional validation from Donald Trump to mark the passing of Aretha Franklin?

Is her life or death in some way about him?

What is it you want, which you have not gotten?

12. Nope, I don't need emotional validation from Chump...

 

...and I don't think Aretha's life or death were in any way about him. What makes me mad and the only thing I want that I have not gotten is someone in the White House who gives a fuck about people other than his demented base.

Thanks so much for your concern, though...

Even though he won't know a damn thing about it.

10. I'm fine with that. He can keep the Queen's name out of his mushmouth.

 

I'm not interested in anything that fat fucker has to say about the GOAT.

Because you know he doesn't know.

15. Not at all surprised

After all, she was a woman and one of color. How anyone cannot see how racist that SOB is (tRump) is beyond me

16. Hang in there....the stroke is coming

No one his age that is so out of shape can maintain this high level of hate and anger day after day after day like this and not blow out an artery wall, or burst a brain vein and stroke out. Relax...give it time.

The Queen of Soul is so superior to him, that any acknowledgment should just be ignored because he would just lie anyway.

17. When has he ever expressed an appreciation for music...

... of any sort?

(Remember Obama sharing a list of tunes loaded on his iPod? Remember the Obamas hosting concerts of various genres in the White House?)

Mango Mussolini doesn't appreciate music or pets or children or art or books or anything apart from himself.

He only gets off on his money and his power and his victories, especially when it involves vanquishing a hated rival.

Despite all his money, he knows the value of nothing.

18. I was thinking the other day the same thing. Never goes to a Broadway show or has an entertainment

night like used to be at the White House. I so looked forward to those evenings, such wonderful acts.

19. Yes, when those White House performances aired on PBS...

...it was so cool to see the Obamas (and Michelle's mother) genuinely enjoying the performances.

I seem to remember one show where POTUS got on stage to sing along to "Sweet Home Chicago."

*Sigh!*

21. The blues show with BB King and others

One of the best things was watching the stream when they were recording it. Got to see the restarts for Mick and others as they announced the next act. The PBS shows were great, but the live stream was brilliant to see the set changes, etc. and banter that didn't make the final cut.

Aretha was on the ladies of soul show and it was brilliant as well even though I didn't see the original live feed version.
