Ivanka is on her knees but she's facing in the wrong direction. :p

Kushner and the Turtle are at least close to the end they spend most of their time tonguing.

Gun-toting (yet Pro-life, how does that work?), bible-thumping, evangelical Republican "Christians": Oh wow, that's a great work of art!

Every other Christian on Earth: What. The. Actual. Fuck?

Heck, shouldn't that even piss off Muslims, what with JC apparently being #2 in the prophet hierarchy?

Agree with Simmo - who did that and to what purpose?
If the purpose was satire, it may have the opposite effect.
If it was praise, then ... ????? :ermm:
It's like Schrodinger's Trump.

Still no wiser. Artist is "Piggy Banksy" which seems to be some sort of collective artsy-fartsy project.

Hmm, Ron Silliman captioned it as 'the latest Banksy' but it's not clear whether they're connected.

This is almost certainly the source painting:

'Trump Wanted to Don Superman Shirt to Leave Hospital

[...] he was considering wearing a Superman T-shirt underneath his customary white button-down and red tie during his first public appearance, The New York Times reports. He would, he said, fake a frail walk at first, then open the shirt to reveal the iconic "S" insignia to demonstrate he was strong and free of the coronavirus. The White House has dodged questions for nearly a week now of when Trump last tested negative for the virus.'

(Wouldn't 'SS' be more appropriate?....)

'Taliban Endorses Trump Re-Election Campaign, Hopes for Total US Troop Withdrawal from Afghanistan'

https://www.newsweek...anistan-1538083

'Polls show that the bottom has dropped out of his support among seniors, so Trump stood on the South Lawn and spoke into a camera. "To my favorite people in the world, the seniors," he intoned. "I'm a senior. I know you don't know that. Nobody knows that. Maybe you don't have to tell them. But I'm a senior."'

"I'm back because I'm a perfect physical specimen and I'm extremely young."

Young. Old. No stimulus. Huge stimulus. One thing about which the president remained certain was the urgent need for the Justice Department to jail his political opponents — including the Democratic nominee, former vice president Joe Biden, and former president Barack Obama.

Attorney General William P. Barr probably thought that by sacrificing his reputation to become a slavering toady, he would remain safely in Trump's good graces. Once again dialing in to Fox News, Trump turned on Barr, telling Sean Hannity — between pauses to cough and gag — that he has lost patience with the attorney general's niggling insistence on actual evidence before slapping cuffs on Biden and Obama. Trump also blasted over his Twitter feed a doctored photo of the late comedian Chris Farley in vein-popping character, screaming at Barr: "for the love of God ARREST SOMEBODY."'

'As the president released a misleading and dangerous message to the public about his ability to vanquish the virus, which he said was more like a case of the common flu, his campaign also released an ad showing the president as a professional footballer vaulting over and then knocking to the ground a defensive player dressed as a Covid-19 molecule, and trotting to the end zone.'

Youtube caption: 'The radical left wing NFL took down this @TeamTrump ad on twitter for copyright infringement. '

[Edit: 'Jared Smith

I have 3 poems in this latest wonderful issue of Chiron Review--and yes, that cover photo of the Review depicts who you think it is, and is by Banksy!'

They may have just confused 'Piggy Banksy' with 'Banksy' though.]

Commented on ACB's voice in the politics discussion thread. I then considered if I was the only one who noticed, so I did a Twitter search. Mean girl twitter, high school cafeteria clique brutality didn't disappoint. Fuck twitter is terrible.

Barrett has the voice of a woman who has swallowed her own voice in deference to men her whole life.

'Trump backed a budding conspiracy theory on Tuesday that four Americans were killed in the 2012 Benghazi attack to cover up the blood-sacrifice of Navy SEALs and the "fact" that Osama Bin Laden is still alive, marking what is perhaps the president's strangest brush yet with far-right conspiracy theories.

Trump's promotion of the new Benghazi conspiracy theory, which is fast gaining traction on the far right, came in the form of a retweet of a QAnon believer pushing the claim. [...]

"Hiden Biden and Obama may have had Seal Team 6 killed! EXPLOSIVE: CIA Whistleblower Exposes Biden's Alleged Role with the Deaths of Seal Team- Claims to have Documented Proof. RETWEET!!!"

All those claims come from a falconer who says he uncovered secrets about Al-Qaeda, Iran, and U.S. intelligence in his work as a falconer for Middle Eastern power players.


[...] Parrot, the subject of a 2010 documentary about his falconry called Feathered Cocaine, has shot to new fame on the right after a video interview with him played over the weekend at the American Priority Conference, a pro-Trump event held at Trump's Miami resort.'

'Rudy Giuliani Posts Footage of Himself Mocking Asians to YouTube

[...] For several minutes on the extended YouTube version, the screen was black and silent. Then Spicer appeared briefly only to quickly sign out, leaving Giuliani at his desk speaking with individuals off-screen, apparently unaware the camera was still recording.

After a few moments of small talk with an assistant who appears to be Jayne Zirkle, an animated Giuliani started affecting a stereotypical Chinese accent while telling Zirkle that she's "going to be the most famous model in China."

"Ah, get me Jayne Zirkle," he said while using the accent.

After asking others in the room what they wanted for dinner, Giuliani continued to say Zirkle's name in the mocking accent. He then started pantomiming a bow while repeating her name, laughing as his team tried to steer him back to talking about the interview. [...]

This isn't the first time that the former New York mayor has had an embarrassing run-in with modern technology, resulting in Giuliani revealing more than he wanted. Late last year, the Trump attorney mistakenly butt-dialed an NBC reporter late at night.

When the reporter woke up, he discovered a three-minute-long voice message from Giuliani, featuring the ex-mayor discussing overseas dealings and his need for cash.'

'GOP Senator Threw Amy Coney Barrett A Softball Question About The First Amendment—And She Totally Whiffed It

[...] Barrett blanked on the freedom to protest the government without consequences until Sasse reminded her.

'Jair Bolsonaro's efforts to portray himself as an anti-corruption crusader have suffered another blow after police reportedly seized a wad of bank notes from between the clenched buttocks of one of his allies.

Chico Rodrigues, the Brazilian president's deputy leader in the senate, was reportedly caught with the concealed bundle on Wednesday during a police search of his home. The raid was part of an operation against the suspected misappropriation of public funds for fighting Covid-19.'

' Trump was personally warned by his own national security adviser last year that his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was being used to feed him disinformation from Russian intelligence operatives, but he just "shrugged his shoulders" [...]

"Do what you want to do, but your friend Rudy has been worked by Russian assets in Ukraine," [...] The idea, one official said, was to "protect the president from coming out and saying something stupid," as Trump was already embroiled in impeachment scandal. But the commander in chief dismissed the warning from National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien by saying, "That's Rudy"'

'"He didn't spend the whole time yelling, he didn't piss himself… so this was as best as we could have hoped for," said one Trump campaign adviser.'

'Trump Appears to Think Conservative Satirical Website Is Actual News

[...] He tweeted a made-up news article from the satirical website Babylon Bee that claimed Twitter shut down its entire social network Thursday to slow the spread of negative news about his opponent Joe Biden. "Wow, this has never been done in history," the president tweeted. "This includes his really bad interview last night. Why is Twitter doing this."'

Seems less like satire than what he does on a regular basis....

'Distancing from Trump: Maryland GOP governor casts write-in vote for Ronald Reagan'

https://www.rawstory...-ronald-reagan/

'"Guthrie: Back to the debate, because the debate commission's rules, it was the honor system, would be that you would come with a negative test. You say you don't know if you got a test on the day of the debate?

Trump: I had no problem. Again, the doctors do it. I don't ask them. I test all the time.

Guthrie: Did you take a test, though, on the day of the debate?

Trump: If you ask the doctors, they'll give you a perfect answer. They take a test, I leave, I go about my business.

Guthrie: Did you take a test on the day of the debate, I guess, is the bottom line.

Trump: I probably did. I took a test before, the day before. I was in great shape for the debate. It was only after the debate, like a period of time after the debate, that I said, that's interesting, and they took a test, and it tested positive.

Guthrie: Just to button it up, do you take a test every single day?

Trump: No. But I take a lot of tests.

Guthrie: And you don't know if you took a test the day of the debate?

Trump: Possibly I did, possibly I didn't.

[...] Trump: I know nothing about QAnon.

Guthrie: I just told you.

Trump: Well, you told me, but what you tell me doesn't necessarily make it fact. I hate to say that. I know nothing about it. I do know they are very much against pedophilia. They fight it very hard. But I know nothing about it.

Guthrie: They believe it is a satanic cult run by the deep state.

Trump: I'll tell you what I do know about. I know about antifa and I know about the radical left and how violent and vicious they are, and I know how they are burning down cities run by Democrats, not run by Republicans.

Guthrie: Republican Sen. Ben Sasse said, "QAnon is nuts, and real leaders call conspiracy theories conspiracy theories."

Trump: He may be right.

Guthrie: Why not just say it's crazy and not true?

Trump: I just don't know about QAnon.

Guthrie: You do know.

Trump: I don't know. I don't know. No, I don't know. … Let me just tell you what I do hear about it is they are very strongly against pedophilia, and I agree with that, I do agree with that.

Guthrie: OK, but there's not a satanic pedophile cult being run by—

Trump: I have no idea. I know nothing about that.

Guthrie: You don't know that? OK.

Trump: No, I don't know that. And neither do you know that.

Guthrie: OK, just this week you retweeted—

Trump: Why aren't you asking me about antifa? Why aren't you asking me about the radical left? Why aren't you asking Joe Biden questions about—why doesn't he condemn antifa? Why does he say it doesn't exist?

Guthrie: Because you're here before me.

Trump: So cute. [the interviewer is female]

[...] Guthrie: Just this week you retweeted to your 87 million followers a conspiracy theory that Joe Biden orchestrated to have SEAL Team 6 killed to cover up the fake death of bin Laden. Now, why would you send a lie like that to your followers?

Trump: That was a retweet. That was an opinion of somebody. And that was a retweet. I'll put it out there.

Guthrie: I don't get that. You're the president. You're not someone's crazy uncle who can retweet whatever.

Trump: No, no, that was a retweet, I do a lot of retweets. And frankly, because the media is so fake and so corrupt, if I didn't have social media—I don't call it Twitter, I call it social media—I wouldn't be able to get the word out. And the word—

Guthrie: The word is false."

Trump took questions from voters[...] Among other topics, the president said that he did not know whether any of the hundreds of millions of dollars he owes is to foreign entities, and that he has a plan to replace Obamacare, which he does not.'
