Quote of the Day

From the New York Times:

Wisdom comes from the unlikeliest places. And on Saturday, Ben Bowling, the valedictorian of Bell County High School in Pineville, Ky., made an inspirational appeal that left his graduating classmates and their parents dumbstruck.

“This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google,” he told the packed auditorium. “‘Don’t just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table’ — Donald J. Trump.”

The crowd burst into applause. President Trump is quite popular in Pineville and the surrounding area, which is the heart of coal country and overwhelmingly supported the president in the 2016 election after he promised to bring coal jobs back to America.

Mr. Bowling, though, wasn’t finished.

“Just kidding,” he said. “That was Barack Obama.”

The cheering abruptly stopped. The crowd went mostly silent. There was a lone boo.

Heh. Suckers.

Quote of the Day

Charles P. Pierce:

What I believe I see here is an incredibly corrupt American family doing business with criminal gangs that are way, way out of their league, and that are in league with the institutions of government, and the formidable security apparatus, of an authoritarian state. Talk about punching out of your weight class. This isn’t cheating some poor subcontractor. These people throw you out windows. And the Trumps have being doing business in this financial abattoir for years. This doesn’t make them sharp. This makes them compliant minnows in a shark tank.

We’re going to need a bigger boat.

Quote of the Day

Trump speaking to graduates at the United States Coast Guard Academy:

“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history, and I say with surety, has been treated worse, more unfairly.”

Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy were all assassinated.  And what about the president that Trump himself said was a founder of ISIS and questioned his birth certificate.

Those are just the Americans.  Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison in South Africa for his political views, and being an opposition politician in Russia is to take your life into your hands.

So yeah, I think that history will judge that they were treated worse.

Grow up, you whiny little baby.

Trump to Time magazine dismissing criticism of his performance so far:

I’m president and you’re not.

Actually, the full quote is, “I’m president and you’re not.  So there.  Neener neener, nyah.”
