Last week I heard about Trump saying that he was going to meet the President of the Virgin Islands.

Tonight I saw the actual video. Trump said:

Quote:
I went to Puerto Rico and I met the President of the Virgin Islands.


Does this guy realize what a moron he is? Seriously!!!!! mad

First of all, sir, you did not meet 'the President of the Virgin Islands' because you ARE the President of the Virgin Islands. Why do you lie so much?!?!!!

Secondly, how you just stand there in front of a microphone and blithely announce that you "met the President of the Virgin Islands?"

C'mon!!!! Can this man stop lying for even five minutes?!?!!! Damn he's an idiot.

(Gawd that man gets me riled-up. crazy )




Ok, rant over. smile

No, I think in the euphemistic sense.

Senator John McCain's speech to the Liberty Medal Award Ceremony.

He may be a "Wacko bird" at times, but I sure do appreciate him in these times of extremest politics.

Holy crap, how did Weinstein ever get any movie producing done?

Many many women harrassed or attacked

Dozens of women he hit on VERY crudely. Like walking out of the bathroom naked and rampant, crude. What I wonder is how many times this actually worked? Or maybe "working" was not the point because he is an exhibitionist and gets off on grossing women out.

You should see what it's like in the ad agency world.
The shocking thing is, in the ad agencies there's a bit more equality in terms of who your harassers are.
If you want to wind up as a Joe Gillis, it might just happen if you're down far enough
on the food chain in an ad agency. Attractive or unattractive, there are many more powerful women who will attempt to manipulate your future prospects up or down depending on how you service them.
The glass ceiling is still very much in place in the big movie studios, less so at the ad agencies.

I was Joe Gillis...for about two weeks

Yes, of course many men will rationalize about it more if their harasser is attractive but let's face it, not only is that just pure dumb luck but, even if they are, at some point you still get sick of their sh!t, and once you do, you're out.

I got hired at a major ad agency in Santa Monica as a courier/gopher, then suddenly found myself promoted to TV series trailer editor.
I edited the trailers and promos for "The Thornbirds" because a mightily distasteful beast decided I was to service her.
She made it clear in no uncertain terms that more opportunities would become available should I continue laying the pipe, something I could not stand doing after about the third time.
Thornbirds trailer done, I was unceremoniously fired, not even welcome to go back to being a gopher, I was just out, period.
Worst part, she was a best friend to one of my roommates.

Q: How are Dodger fans like Trump's visit to Puerto Rico?

A: Both show up late, and leave early.

Speaking of Dodgers...

...it is so assumed that the Dodgers will when the World Series, that the Dodgers have already declined to visit the White House.
