"Ronald Reagan wouldn't even allow anyone to enter the Oval Office without a coat and tie!"

?resize=865%2C452

Remember that canard?
Conservatives trot it out every time they want to have feigned outrage over something like Obama propping his feet up on a desk (never mind that Dubya did the same) and defiling the sacred ground.


But of course, Kanye coming into that supposedly hallowed office and pounding on the same desk while screaming "bullshit!" and "motherfucker!" on national television -- "he's a great amurican!"


Crickets from Bill Bennet, who once made it his personal crusade to get rap CDs with profanity banned. He's equally silent about the profane Kid Rock being invited into the WH today.
"It's the K-K-Kid Rock with the K-K-Kid Rock shit
I'm on top bitch and rock for tricks
Hella whips and nips and flip trips for whips
I get all the money pussy falls like rain!"
-- Kid Rock, singing "Fuck Off," no doubt a Christian hymn


Crickets from Michael Reagan, who always invokes the jacket story (which, BTW, isn't true, as photos show) to describe his adopted dad Saint Ronnie.


Crickets from Bill O'Reilly, who needed smelling salts when Obama invited Common to the WH

Crickets from Sean Hannity, who always read rap lyrics breathlessly in his dramatic white guy voice, then demanded of guests "Do you stand by these words? Yes or no!"

-- Oh, wait. Not crickets from Sean. he said he Facetimed with Kanye this evening and loves him.

Ditto Huckabee's daughter, the poster girl of the religious right, who happily posted photos of herself with the self-described "motherfucker" after the incident. Daddy wont go after him like he did Common, I'm sure.

I guess the next president is free to take a dump on the desk, given that conservatives have abandoned any credibility on outrage regarding "respect for the office"

1. The myth-makers...

...have been far too effective.

However thoroughly the myths are debunked, an unbelievable number of people relish repeating the "unicorn" tales they know are false. The tragedy is that they are so successful in convincing others to believe.

And so it goes.

4. Jim Brown was there too ...

And doesn't he have a history with domestic violence?

But Pres. Obama topped all of their bad behaviors, because he had nerve to actually wear a damn Tan suit for the world to see

7. And didn't he look GREAT in that tan suit?

When did a dark blue pinstripe become the required POTUS uniform? Also, spare us all the photos of Trump looking bloated and out of shape in golf clothes. At least we won't ever have to see him coming out of the surf in swim trunks like Obama, or even riding a bike like Dubya. I'm pretty sure of that.

6. Mark my words. Ten years from now conservatives will mist up over Trump like they do for Reagan.

10. Somehow I greatly doubt that. We're just beginning to feel the economic pain of Trump's insane

"trade policy." Companies and farmers are going to start going bankrupt due to the tariffs war.
