Pictures From Trump's Fast-Food Feast, Ranked by Sadness



Last night, as you have no doubt already heard, President Trump welcomed members of the Clemson University football team to the White House to celebrate their victory over the University of Alabama’s Crimson Tide in the national championship. The team and Clemson staff were greeted with a massive feast comprised completely of pre-packaged food from Burger King, Wendy’s, and Trump’s all-time favorite restaurant, McDonald’s.

The feast, as it were, was the ultimate expression of Trump’s time in Washington, and of the ongoing government shutdown, which put the White House kitchen out of commission, hence the fast food feast. As the Washington Post reported, one Clemson player could at one point be overheard saying, “I thought it was a joke.” Here’s a ranking, from “a little depressing” to “extremely sad,” of the most epic emotional meal in modern political history.

No. 6

Does the FBI leak things like Trump being investigated for being a Russian asset so the public can

digest it and come to terms with it over time and be ready for the news once it breaks? If they flat out broke it out of nowhere, seems like it could be a shock to the public and hard for many to believe. Not hard for me to believe but for someone not so tuned into how fucking corrupt he is.

Someone must understand why it is done this way?

LOL! Democratic rebuttal had higher ratings than Trump's speech

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's televised response to President Trump on Tuesday night got higher ratings than Trump's address, The Hill reports.

By the numbers: Schumer and Pelosi's rebuttal got a combined 29.3 rating on NBC, Fox News, CNN, CBS, MSNBC and ABC, according to early numbers from Nielsen. Trump's address had a 28.1 rating on those same networks.

In 1938, Nazis wanted to know if 'The Hobbit' author was Jewish. He responded with a high-class burn

by Tod Perry

In 1933, Adolf Hitler handed the power of Jewish cultural life in Nazi Germany to his chief propagandist, Joseph Goebbels. Goebbels established a team of of regulators that would oversee the works of Jewish artists in film, theater, music, fine arts, literature, broadcasting, and the press.

Goebbels’ new regulations essentially eliminated Jewish people from participating in mainstream German cultural activities by requiring them to have a license to do so.

This attempt by the Nazis to purge Germany of any culture that wasn’t Aryan in origin led to the questioning of artists from outside the country.

In 1938, English author J. R. R. Tolkien and his British publisher, Stanley Unwin, opened talks with Rütten & Loening, a Berlin-based publishing house, about a German translation of his recently-published hit novel, “The Hobbit.”

Privately, according to “1937 The Hobbit or There and Back Again,” Tolkien told Unwin he hated Nazi “race-doctrine” as “wholly pernicious and unscientific.” He added he had many Jewish friends and was considering abandoning the idea of a German translation altogether.

The Berlin-based publishing house sent Tolkien a letter asking for proof of his Aryan descent. Tolkien was incensed by the request and gave his publisher two responses, one in which he sidestepped the question, another in which he clapped back ‘30s-style with pure class.

Harvard Law professor explains Don Jr. and Jared Kushner are caught on collusion

Several Trump loving "friends" on FB still think Trump got N. Korea to end its nuclear program

He posted a meme about how Trump could break a deal with North Korea and not the Dems. I was like WTF??? I responded by saying: "You know that deal was never finalized and N. Korea still has all it's weapons and no plans t get rid of them don't you?" Several other of his friends defended him and so I linked to several articles and the thread came to a screeching halt.

This is what kind of a box they live in. They have zero idea of the reality that is going on around them, only what Trump and other Trump loving people on FB feed them.
