'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I think they need to find a safe space.

    I don’t have any problem with being outraged about the Sarah Sanders Fat jokes—so long as the people getting outraged were just as apoplectic about Trump’s jokes about....literally everyone else.

  • sherbsherb Senior Member Posts: 3,797 Senior Member

    The older I get the less tolerance I have for fat girl jokes. It’s **** hard to lose weight and I know it.

  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 23,714 Senior Member

    There were no fat girl jokes that I recall.

    Well I guess that’s what I get for paying greater attention to the controversy than to the actual content.

    Its refreshing to see these folks saying what they've really wanted to say, but couldn't because of the PC enviro created over the last 8 years. Thanks Trump!

    How well-known was this comedienne before all this? Asking seriously. I don't really pay attention to comedians.

    Yes Trump is a real champion of freedom of expression if you are a ****, if you are a liberal, you need to shut up and dribble.

    They can dish it, taking it? Not so much.

    yes, it is, and they auto-correct it going all the way back 500 pages.

    I mean imagine trying to have an internet debate without using the word N-A-Z-I. You can't do it. it violates every law of fighting on the interwebs.

    There were a few good jokes, but mostly insults.
    Sarah Huckabee showed class.

    unfashionable opinion of the day: I like Sara Huckabee Sanders. I know she's a Trumpkin and all, and the job of a press secretary is basically to tell lies, but she seems like a really normal person, not like the barbie doll talking heads.

  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 23,714 Senior Member

    She chooses to lie, not spin lie, there is not even a single utterance of truth that comes from her mouth as she vilifies a free press. She is the definition of fake news and again it is a job she chose, she is no better than her father and she got everything she deserved. She is Josef Goebbels in a dress.

    Oh, for God’s sakes.

    I am sorry, but this is not Ari Fleisher, this is a propagandist of the first order. Perhaps you can stomach this attack on our democratic institutions. But this is unprecedented and there are no excuses for her vile behavior.

    I know that with a five minute google search I can find the same invective directed at Fleischer. I remember it, in fact.

    But yeah, she’s a Trumpkin. That’s not why I like her.

    Not from me.

    The fact she chooses to be a Trumpkin, means she is complicit in the lies she tells. She could have any job, but she chose to be a propagandist that attacks the men and women of the FBI and accuse legitimate journalists of being fake news. Anyone that finds this even remotely acceptable behavior will be fiddling while Rome burns.

    She is not a normal person, she relishes her power and she wields it with gusto.

    I would phrase it differently, but I pretty much agree with Chris. She comes across as a True Believer who would throw granny under the bus for Trump, then testify that Hillary pushed her. Still, the roasting was in poor taste and played into Trump's hand.

    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.
  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 3,351 Senior Member

    I'd hit it.

  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 23,714 Senior Member

    I don't know about poor taste, they get the same criticism every year, I didn't find her that funny. The funniest line was the one for Rachael Maddow. I prefer comics that are clever and say things I wish I said.

    As long as she didn't talk. I'm not a fan of the voice.
