The Widdershins


Posted on: November 17, 2016


The clownfish and the anemone are perfect symbiotic mates.  Fortuitously, the clownfish can live among the poisonous tendrils of the anemone since it is biologically immune to the toxin.  Predatory fish will get their little fishy bells rung by the sweet, sweet sting of the anemone.  What does the anemone get out of this hookup?  The anemone gets to eat the clownfish’s shit.

And there you have it my friends – the perfect analogy.  With der Drumpf as the “Clownfish” and the anemone being the press and by extension the public, it is a plotline right out of XXX Finding Fetishized Nemo.  Here’s the rub, Marlin was so darn cute in Finding Nemo, the clownfish swam straight to the endangered species listIs our future any brighter?

Bannon after a couch hack-a-thon with his Russian buds…

If you look at the school of clownfish circling the West Wing, I sincerely doubt it.  By now you have heard and read about Steve Bannon, the new potentate of the Emirates of Trump.  He’s a dirty bird.  Oops, I’m mixing metaphors.  Well anyway, Bannon is an alt-right combo platter of Lee Atwater, G. Gordon Liddy, Karl Rove, with a side order of Joey Goebbels.  It is from Joey that Bannon got his mantra, “A lie told once remains a lie, but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.”  When you go through Goebbels’ quotes, Bannon seems to have been carved out of his arse.

There are those who are lighting their hair on fire about Bannon.  There are those who think he could be worseSaint Elizabeth and Friar Sanders can hoot and holler all they want, but it will only create more steely resolve in the King Clownfish – that’s the way he is wired.  More on that tomorrow.

Then you have Prince Rebus or whatever his name is as Chief of Staph Staff.  Give him some cheese and sit him in the corner.  He will be nothing more than an assistant’s assistant to make sure the phone is charged so the Clownfish can tweet himself to sleep at night.

Announced last night was Dr. Strangelove’s progeny, Gen. Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor.  Whatta jewel this guy is!  Most of the people who knew him prior to this campaign insist he needs a mental health evaluation because he went from reserved military intelligence guy to leading chants of “lock her up”.  That is a long walk on a short pier.  Here’s an excerpt from an interview with Dana Priest about Russia:

PRIEST: Tell me about the RT [state-run Russian Television] relationship?

That's Flynn, Putie Poot, and Green Party Avocado Jill Stein...

That’s Flynn, Putie Poot, and Green Party Avocado Jill Stein…

FLYNN: I was asked by my speaker’s bureau, LAI. I do public speaking. It was in Russia. It was a paid speaking opportunity. I get paid so much. The speaker’s bureau got paid so much, based on our contract.

PRIEST: Can you tell me how much you got for that?

FLYNN: No, because I don’t want my fees out there.

PRIEST: Have you appeared on Russian Television regularly?

FLYNN: I appear on Al Jazeera, Skye New Arabia, RT. I don’t get paid a dime. I have no media contracts. … [I am interviewed] on CNN, Fox …

PRIEST: Why would you go on RT, they’re state run?

FLYNN: Well, what’s CNN?

PRIEST: Well, it’s not run by the state. You’re rolling your eyes.

FLYNN: Well, what’s MSNBC? I mean, come on … what’s Al Jazeera? What’s Sky News Arabia?

I won’t quote any more of the interview, but he goes on to say he knows Putin doesn’t respect the leadership of Obama.  Ask how he knows this, he explains he can just tell.  So there you have it.  The Clownfish’s National Security Advisor takes paid speaking gigs from Russia, thinks CNN and MSNBC are state-run news agencies, and knows things based on his keen spidey sense.  Help us all.

BRB, gotta go drain the home place, errr, swamp.  Notice the big cigars in everyone's pie holes...

BRB, gotta go drain the home place, errr, swamp. Notice the big cigars in everyone’s pie holes…

Then you have Rudy “9/11” Giuliani or John “Bomb’em” Bolton for Secretary of State.  Diplomacy is so last century.  Hair spring tempers are where it’s at these days.  The Clownfish read all about it on Instagram.

And you know what is really sad?  The Clownfish has no one in his school other than family members whom he trusts.  It is like going to a second grade party and having to bring along a playmate.  In this case, the trusted playmate is Jared Kushner, son-in-law-elect.  Everyone thinks it’s creepy the way Trump talks about his dating his daughter, but folks, Ivanka married her father, just a younger version.  I’m not kidding when I say, “Bring this clan to eastern Kentucky and they wouldn’t miss a beat.”  This is a long article, but it details the history of the most imperious young Mr. Kushner.

The scariest of trial farts (balloons seem too festive) – Ted Cruz as Attorney General.  The show trials would have show trials.  Cruz would be the first Attorney General to wear epaulets.  Bill and Hillary would be hounded relentlessly.  Planned Parenthood would be sued every which way from Tuesday.  Like Texas, Cruz would put in an express lane for federal death penalty executions.

Some of my best friends are…

Then there is the stinkiest sunflower in Kansas, Kris Kobach.  If there is ever a halal sex toy manufactured, this guy’s the model for it.  He’s the author of “paper please” statutes all over the country.  He’s talking about Muslim bans and walls.  What a tool!

There’s something else about Kobach that just drives me insane.  Lots of these conservodroids do it.  When they are describing their outrageous, batcrap crazy nonsense, they act as if it is the most logical thing in the world.  They are insulted for any questioning.  For instance:

Q:  Mr. Kobach, why do you need gun turrets and bazookas on the great, big, beautiful wall?

A:  Well, we tried putting the guns closer to the ground, but our kill shots were missing.  If you read Periodicals Explaining NRA Illustrated Stratagems P.E.N.I.S. for short, you’d know that.

When the Clownfish said he was going to drain the swamp, he didn’t mention he was going to bring the swamp creatures to D.C.  Even the arch conservative Washington Examiner is talking about the swamp creatures headed for the West Wing.circus-peanut

There’s one thing for sure, the Orangeloupe has figured out how to make a buck out of it.  He’s billed the Secret Service $6.0 Million for riding on Air Trump One to protect him.  That’s plus billing the campaign for flight time.  He really is going to be the first person to make money running for President.  If he orders Secret Service protection for his kids, he can bill the government for all their air travel.  Get ready for the Trump Kleptocracy.

What’s on your mind today?

@1, ROFL!

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won’t officially join the Democratic Party even though he was appointed to a leadership position within the Senate Democratic Conference this week.

The equivalent of Mata Hari in drag not joining the Japanese Radio Broadcasters’ Association.


Prolix, brilliant post! LOL funny! Kleptocracy is right. I’m so sick of Bernie Sanders. The Dems in control now must be really afraid of him. I think I’ll email the Dems & ask them why I should join their party when they give leadership positions to non Democrat radicals.

Sweet Sue, good one.

@4, (shuddering)

@5, thanks Annie.

Just for a moment, the briefest moment in time, consider what the Senate Dems have done. Elected a non-Democrat to be in charge of outreach for growing the party. This bit of brilliant strategic thinking was spawned in the brain of the one Democratic officeholder who is thick as thieves with the King Clownfish. Schumer and Drumpf are long-time butt sniffers. Democrats don’t deserve to be a national party. Pretty soon they won’t have to worry about it.

Well this discussion certainly got me in the spirit of the holidays. (corrected to add “discussion”)

@7, Ho, ho, oh….

King Clownfish: Text me if you are in town, I know a good hotel — close.


@9: Oh good grief! (see 7 above)

There’s a new image and link on the right. See Prolix’s comment at 6.

“I’ll see about a special rate for you at the Trump Potemkin Hotel….”


@12: “Uh is this on the GSA rate for per diem?”.

Love your circus peanut ending! I thought it was a cheeto, then a yam – hehe, pure genius! He still makes me want to puke. Great post! Hope we all end up in the same camp together – that’s what’s on my mind. Still not sleeping – still sick in my gut. They are going to let him have Kushner. He will get to keep all his businesses, etc. Who is going to rule on this stuff? There are so many things that need to be ruled on – like everything Trump wants to do. Seriously – who can stop him?

@13, Friar Sanders was just named as a member of the Dem Leadership Team one day. By the next, he’s throwing Hillary under the bus saying, “He could have won the election.” Now this, climb on the Trump Train.

It’s over. This is how the Republicans treated Obama.

@15, contrask, I hope we end up in the same camp too — I’ll be in the corner making Circus Peanut and Cheeto amuse-bouches.

I don’t know who can stop him. This isn’t widely discussed, but legally the Office of the President is exempt from most everything when it comes to the regular order of business in the federal government. Shame and precedent have been the levelers in the past — with the Clownfish, not so much I fear.

@17: Time to contact the DNC to let them know I’m considering changing affiliation to no party/unaffiliated, whatever it takes.

@18, I’m sure Donna BrazilNut will write a memo about it.

I’m with you, I am seriously considering going to Independent, but given that the Repubs took over the House of Representatives for the first time since 1924, will probably stop me. Independents can vote in primaries up here in the Land of Limbless Family Trees.


@19: That’s the one thing that would hold me back, the primaries. But still, should I get any mail from them I can reply and give them a huge piece of my mind.

I’ll just have to keep this mental image in mind for the next four years.

It just keeps getting worse. Why aren’t dems screaming non-stop like any repug would over Flynn, Guiliani, Bannon, etc, et all The son of top
“Donald Trump adviser and retired Gen. Michael Flynn regularly shares conspiracy theories, expletive-filled posts, and racially insensitive sentiments on Twitter and Facebook, a CNN KFile review of his social media presence reveals.”


Make sure to read the Gloria Alred comment at the end.


I was arguing all day yesterday on Facebook (why why why do I do that?) with two Bernie bros. They insist Bernie would have won in a landslide. Because e-mails.

I was an Independent between 2001 and last week. I switched to Democrat… But actually if Sanders is running their show – forget it. I’ll switch back.

Also, what do we think about Drumpf using Bannon as a distraction to get crazies like Flynn appointed? Everyone screams about Bannon, and suddenly Flynn and Giuliani look normal by comparison?

Though neither Clinton will likely run for office, the Bernie Bros and the rest of them better tread carefully here claiming the ‘Clintons have no power’ in the Democratic party anymore. The Clinton’s have loooong memories and tons of loyal friends in the Dem party who would not be where they are today without the Clinton’s. And they know it. Plus, Senate Democrats have no love for Bernie. He will, as usual, go over the top and the eye rolling with begin again. Schumer has been a pandering shit a long time.

@14, No.

And I suspect that few Federal employees really want to patronize any of Trump’s businesses.

Sanders got a taste of power and now he’s addicted. He has no principles and no shame. Same as Drumpf.

Anyone else think Bannon looks like a disheveled version of Assange?

@29: I assumed as much but it was the only thing I could come up at the time for a reply. 😩

@27 good point!

@30, exactly! I’m so sick of him & Stein. Vultures.

Who would have thought it: This shit has gotten to The Rude Pundit.

I gotta get my head straight and my voice and fists ready.

I’m not gonna do that spending the next couple of months writing constantly, “Boy, Donald Trump sure is gonna suck” or “Boy, that cabinet choice sure is gonna dick us all over.” Because, really, we don’t know how bad it’ll be and what he’s gonna do until his tiny moisturized, manicured orange hands are holding the reins of power.

I so understand.

I understand too. Drumpf lied 70% of the time on the campaign trail, so it’s really impossible to predict what he’s going to do. On the other hand, his team is shaping up to be the worst since Raygun. The ones who aren’t corrupt, are national security risks. The ones who aren’t national security risks, are white supremacists. If they stood on Willie Wonka’s egg scale, it would rate them all “BAD” and whoosh! Down the chute they’d go. Maybe that chute goes to “DGINA” in Trump World.

@Fredster, I dunno, could always ask if he’s got a Gov’t rate. Knowing Drumpf, it’s probably much higher.

@36: I would not doubt it at all. 😉
