For Christ sakes! This is no longer about Hillary Clinton! This is about you!!!

And he just slammed the fucking BBC!!!!

82. Jose Ferrer

but they do look similar.

My problem (after watching Bogart in a bunch of films now) is that he over-acted the part way too much. I know what he was trying to portray and I understand the thrust of the plot, but it just didn't click for me with him doing it. I think the primary movie that I liked him in was Key Largo (followed by Maltese Falcon). Didn't like Casablanca or this.

107. The only thing I liked about it

was that it actually gave me a good little illustrative history lesson on Vichy France and the connection with Morocco (my father was a Pacific Theater WW2 vet not a European one so the Europe side of WW2 was always a big mish mash to me in general). And Ingrid Bergman was okay. But IMHO, Bogart was just... stiff and the movie became one big cliche.

In Key Largo & The Big Sleep (films he did with Lauren Bacall), it was like day and night different. She seemed to bring out a more natural acting style for him. Bacall was just so talented at such a young age and kept right on at it to the end (I remember when she played on a Sopranos episode and I was like ).

147. You're definitely in the minority. "Casablanca" is always included in top film lists...

from the plot to the dialogue to the characters to Dooley Wilson playing and singing "As Time Goes By" — quite memorable imo.

160. I like the song

and the plot has a certain poignancy to it as a war film, but if you compare it to a masterpiece like "Citizen Kane" (so far my #1 film) that released the year before Casablanca, it's literally like day and night - even as sprawling as it was. And Citizen Kane was conceived (and every thing else associated with it bring it to life including acting) by a 25-year old Orson Welles.

IMHO, Casablanca has been trivialized down to the misquote "Play it again Sam" and essentially what were caricature characters played by Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre.

173. I did not see "Casablanca" until

I was about 30 or so, and even though by then the movie was an enormous classic, I had managed not to know anything at all about it other than a couple of the most famous lines. As a consequence, when I did see it, I saw it as the original audiences did, and was caught completely off guard by the ending. Loved the movie, but it's not one I'm willing to watch over and over again, as many do.

I do treasure that I was so surprised by the entire movie.

174. I didn't see it until I was in my 50s

when TCM aired it (with the usual commentary - probably by Robert Osborne - they generally will air it during their "Oscar Month" and a few other times of the year if they are featuring an actor or director).

It seemed to establish a self-contained "world" during WW2 that was a hotbed of intrigue, and no, the ending wasn't a surprise to me (maybe I'm jaded and have seen similar). But IMHO, it really isn't something begging a repeat watching.

It's just like "The Manchurian Candidate", which is oft-cited on DU. I completely understand what the plot was and there were elements to it that were unique and thought-provoking, but IMHO, the execution was just bizarre and in some cases, cringe-worthy (although I guess when it first came out, it was considered ground-breaking as a political thriller). Sinatra was just "okay" and somewhat bland, but Angela Lansbury was good. I would have liked to see George Peppard in the main role. I haven't seen the remake with Denzel Washington.

"Manchurian Candidate." The remake, for me, is excellent. It updated the story quite nicely, and Meryl Streep is (as always) absolutely incredible.

I was actually surprised when I first watched this movie and saw him in it. He was the most natural-acting of the whole lot of them and I enjoyed his character. Am guessing because some of the older actors like Bogart were used to doing more "emoting" as if they were on stage in front of a live audience, whereas MacMurray was on his way to TV land and letting the camera capture his acting.

125. "Nation shall speak peace unto Nation".

BBC motto on their coat of arms (yes even the British Broadcasting Corporation has a coat of arms). I thought it was "Nation shall speak truth unto Nation." But one thing that the BBC is a stickler for (and in turn ITV and a slightly lesser extent Sky News) is accuracy and truth. Their heritage is based on debunking fake news pretty much since the start of the BBC Empire Service (nowadays known as BBC World Service Radio).

And given that he decided to rip on Auntie, this response is typical Auntie...

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38999993

and the end of his article I'll quote as I find it the most poignant...

"And here's my one curious takeaway.
The media that he professes to hate and despise he seems to spend an awful lot of time watching.
You wonder, when does he find time to govern?" - Jon Sopel, BBC News.

It's also telling of the audience the #4 most read article on BBC News website right now:

"Experts debate Trump's mental health" - http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38991171

If there's anything worse than a sore loser its a sore winner.

A very sickening moment came for me when he announced after the election to a crowd "Does anybody here think that Hillary would be tougher on Russia than me?.....give me a break!" It doesn't matter if Hillary may or may not have been "tougher", as that is moot now. Why waste time dwelling on a non sequitur? But its that last line that shows his personality. "give me a break!". Something said to attack anyone disagreeing with that person as being the one that is living in a fantasy.

49. He sounds like a total lunatic, acts like a total lunatic, and looks like a total lunatic.

He just might be a lunatic!

I just want to scream and cry, how the fuck could America actually elect this ignorant, traitor, criminal hater, illiterate racist and assaulter? I know Russia and Comey, but still, how could people like my boss that's a seemingly sane person, who's not a racist, vote for Hair Furor? How could they not see that he's insane? A normal person doesn't get sued 22 times for sexual assault, and 67 times for failing to pay workers and vendors - that's abnormal in a terrible way. Yes, Comey and Russia threw the election, but it should never have been close enough for them to steal.

OMG! He's so totally stupid. They were saying on CNN that when Obama came into office, he already had his foreign policy in place and the people he'd chosen to fill offices were thoroughly vetted and ready to go. Drumpf comes in office and has no plan for ISIS (that was a total lie when he said he did) no plan for anything except bending over for Russia, and no foreign policy plans at all and really had no clue what American foreign policy is or has been for decades. He didn't know about 1 China, he didn't know about the 2 state solution, didn't know about settlements, doesn't know how Japanese name themselves and got the Prime Ministers' name wrong. Didn't know his wife was to play host the entire time the wife of the Japanese PM was here. Didn't know that courts had any say in what he does and didn't accept them as having any role.

I'd like to say he's an embarrassment, but he's so much worse than that. He's the big baby destroyer who will end our constitutional way of life if given free reign. WE will all become serfs to the 1%'s barons as all our rights and $ are taken away. He will also destabilize the world and end freedom in the Baltics and rest of Europe by discontinuing our support for NATO.

62. The tRump supporters I'm reading are loving it.

Some selections just from the first 50 of over 350 posts. Most of them are quite slavish.

"He sounds exhausted. Pray for him."

"spanking the press now....love it"

"Excellent comment on the lack of integrity of the press. Now, tell the illegals to settle down or you’re going to go after every one of them. If they settle down, it will only be the criminals that will be picked up."

"I LOVE HIM!!! RE-CONFIRMED EVERY TIME HE SPEAKS!"

"He’s KILLING it!"

"STOP TALKING ABOUT THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE."

"Donald J. Trump is a truly beautiful man. Absolutely shining! Love you very much, brother President Trump! We are with you. We got your back."

"He’s reminding the media he won and has the support of the American people good for him. He’s not most articulate but what he is doing speaking honestly Totally honest. St Michael protect this man."

"The security and joy one gets listening to the Commander in Chief is a good feeling."

"I think disgusted is where he’s at, after learning just how dirty DC truly is, and how widespread the corruption. I’d say he’s possibly heartbroken at his America suffering so much from these cretins."





Alternative universe. But there are some cracks in it. A few are beginning to see through and wonder. They tend to get slapped down, though.

" “Biggest EC victory since Reagan.” Why does he keep saying this? He sounds insecure." Note: that is factually incorrect. Obama beat him both times, Bill Clinton beat him both times, and even GHW Bush beat him.

"No, he really does not."

"Oh shut up"

"Let Trump be Trump."

"There is NOTHING “insecure” about this wonderful President."

"But what I will say is that Trump's decision, amid turmoil inside and outside his White House, to turn his fire on the media was a deeply predictable move.

It's also one that will almost certainly succeed in changing the subject from Russia and Mike Flynn.

Trump knows all that. It's why he did it."

The only word that describes it is "incoherent".

It was like a post modernist stream of consciousness blabber. There was absolutely no sense to it whatsoever.

No sane person would orchestrate such a thing as -- how did you put it? -- a distraction.

Indeed, and ironically, it might have been just that. The entire world may be indeed distracted for some time now by the increasingly inevitable fact that the president of the United States is obviously barking fucking mad.

While I'm sure plenty of those who vote for him will convince themselves otherwise to protect their own egos and worldview, the man is clearly not mentally sound. He was a coherent, more focused, narcissistic scumbag at one time. He's defenitely different now.

Anything that actualy seems like a deliberate action comes from Bannon, though sometimes maybe he finds Trump's crazy rants useful? There's a quote I've seen before that was something like going along with nonsense can be useful in identifying a loyal unshakable following. May have been something Bannon himself said. I can't remember exactly.

145. What the fuck kind of strategy is that?

What purpose does such madness as we all witnessed today serve???

Pray tell me any rational explanation. And I am sorry. Bannon orchestrated it does not pass muster. No sane person would wish for such utter lunacy as occurred this afternoon.

This came from Drumpf, and only from Drumpf. Any other explanation is -- how can one say it? AHA! -- fake news.

This is Drumpf. This is who he is. We need to face up to that fact.

And yes, Bannon, and Stephen Miller, and Sean Spicer, and Kellyanne Conway, and Betsy Wetsy DeVos, and, and, and, ad infinitum, are also complicit.

However none of those others would be where they are now without Drumpf!!!

Let us never forget that, nor today's presser.

151. Found it, I was off

It's from someone in Bannon's political "sphere". This article exams Bannon's political influences:

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/02/steve-bannon-books-reading-list-214745

Before he emerged on the political scene, an obscure Silicon Valley computer programmer with ties to Trump backer and PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel was explaining his behavior. Curtis Yarvin, the self-proclaimed “neoreactionary” who blogs under the name “Mencius Moldbug,” attracted a following in 2008 when he published a wordy treatise asserting, among other things, that “nonsense is a more effective organizing tool than the truth.” When the organizer of a computer science conference canceled Yarvin’s appearance following an outcry over his blogging under his nom de web, Bannon took note: Breitbart News decried the act of censorship in an article about the programmer-blogger’s dismissal.

...

To believe in nonsense is an unforgeable demonstration of loyalty. It serves as a political uniform. And if you have a uniform, you have an army,” he writes in a May 2008 post.

153. Today was not just nonsense.

It was madness, utter madness!!!!

And journalists will nearly universally report it as such.

My question to Bannon would then be, "How's that nonsense thingie workin' out for ya, Bub?"

Anybody who believes that rubbish is delusional. They excoriated Stephen Miller. He lasted one day. Half the networks are now excluding Kellyanne. Melissa McCarthy is making a utter joke of Sean Spicer to the point that nobody even sees Sean behind that podium any more. It's Melissa!!!

Ridicule is the appropriate strategy. Relentless ridicule. And never stop laughing at them.

That's our great weapon. Their brains will explode.

130. That was terrifying. I started crying, and left work early

after hearing Jeffrey Lord normaliizng Trump's press conference. That he is a charming guy and we had better get used to this.

I feel like Trump is an existential threat to the survival of the world, truly insane, and people in Congress and the media are still enabling him - I feel totally helpless for my own survival.

It's all stream of consciousness, post modernist rubbish. It is like his brain is nearly, and possibly, totally dysfunctional.

Today's presser was the scariest thing I have ever heard from a president of the United States. Irrationality does not even begin to describe it.

The only appropriate word is: incoherent

150. Here's something we can all do - sign this petition for Trump's removal

This petition follows the open letter by a number of leading psychiatrists published in the NYT calling for public action on the matter – you can read about it here: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/13/opinion/mental-health-professionals-warn-about-trump.html?smid=fb-share&_r=3&mtrref=www.independent.co.uk&assetType=opinion

Our goal is to reach 25,000 signatures and we are getting close, but still need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here:

https://www.change.org/p/trump-is-mentally-ill-and-must-be-removed?recruiter=682932605&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=share_email_responsive

The signed petition will be delivered to Chuck Schumer.

157. Removing a president?

There are only two ways, short of him dying or resigning.

1. Impeachment by the US House of Represetatives on a majority vote, followed by conviction in the US Senate by a 2/3rds majority of that body.

2. President becomes incapacitated and a majority of Department officers (cabinet secretaries), plus the VEEP, agree to his inability to fulfill the requirements of his office. (25th Amendment.)

That's it. No number of petition signatures (or Kellogg's cereal box tops) can remove a sitting US president.

And no! There are no do-overs for presidential elections either under our constitution.

Sadly, Drumpf is POTUS.

158. Because it matters to some of us.

Granted, we understand that some may not share the interest, and that is fine with me.

Drumpf made an utter fool of himself today.
His presser was nothing short of an incoherent, insane rant. It is not going to go well for him. Not at all.

This hurt him badly.

I don't blame anybody who wants to stay away. I was watching the local news and it just came on, otherwise I would not have seen it either. But once it began I could not help myself, just like an accident on the expressway.

My best to you.

164. He has to interrupt every question so he can steer the answer since he can't

 

answer any tough and the even not so tough questions. He sees one little opening that he can veer off and he seizes it.

This was just a little warm up for the big show...the big rally Saturday night! Yeah!!! Where he can get loud, yell, rant and rave freely and uninterrupted! Come and see the shooowwww.

171. Unfortunately his base loved it. They didn't see an unhinged megalomaniac they saw

the Donald Trump they idolize and love. He put a Black reporter in her place, he insulted and dismissed the press and he belittles a Israeli reporter. All the while praising himself.

This is what his alt-right base wants. Someone who has no respect for the US government and will trash it and the 4th estate and treats minorities and "the others" like a piece of mud on the sole of their shoes.
