Interesting Times

So much has happened in the last week that it makes me think of the old saying..."may you live in interesting times"...

First the ridiculous Birth Certificate sideshow (click here for my previous post on this silliness) was finally put to rest when President Obama finally went to the trouble to get the state of Hawaii to make an EXCEPTION to their LAW in order to release this unnecessary document (who am I kidding…it won’t actually be “put to rest” because with some of these lunatics there is literally NOTHING that would convince them. In fact, I’m coming to believe that even if we found a way for them to travel back in time so that they could actually WATCH the baby President being born in Kapiolani Maternity Hospital in Honolulu, it still wouldn’t be good enough for them).

When this document was released last week, the right thing for Donald Trump to have done would have been to be humble (fat fucking chance, the man doesn’t know the meaning of the word) and admit that he made a huge deal and whipped up a fury over absolutely nothing. He should have said that he was embarrassed that he acted like such an absolute fool and distracted the nation and the President of the United States with this ridiculous TRIPE, because the standard short form birth certificate that had already been released IS the legal document that is currently recognized in every state and that this President should not have been forced into having to go to extraordinary measures to provide a document that has never been required of any other President.
But instead, the arrogant son-of-a-slumlord chose to say…“I’m very proud of myself, because I accomplished something that nobody else has been able to accomplish.”

To me, this is like a fly being proud of itself because it had managed to be such an annoying pest for so long that it finally forced the human to actually get a fly swatter, “LOOK how important I am!! I made him actually have to DO something that he shouldn’t have had to!! Doesn’t that make me smart and wonderful??!”

But hopefully THAT little sideshow really will be put to rest now that President Obama not only provided the superfluous document, but then he followed that up by making the Donald look really foolish at the White House Correspondents dinner on Saturday night.

...but then the real clincher came when the President announced late Sunday evening (coincidentally the network interrupted Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" to break the news) that his administration had managed to do something that the Bush administration had given up on long ago...

So...we got a birth certificate on Thursday, a Royal Wedding on Friday, a big party on Saturday, and then a death certificate on Sunday...I wonder if Trump is going to demand to see the long version of that too?

Interesting times indeed...
