You have to laugh - or cry !
I appreciate it is not really very funny and yet it really is hilariously funny when you look at the bigger picture.
The former president of the United States ( twice impeached and only a one time president - ( deliberately spelled with a small p as he does not deserve a capital P.) on Wednesday went into yet another rant about windmills during an interview with Canadian YouTubers.
Donald Trump was interviewed on the Nelk Boys podcast at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
The former commander-in-chief was asked how he saw Russia's invasion of Ukraine ending.
"Well, and I said this a long time ago, if this happens, we are playing right into their hands. Green energy. The windmills, they don't work, they're too expensive, they kill all the birds, they ruin your landscapes, and yet, the environmentalists love the windmills," Trump complained after being asked about a war in Europe.
"I've been preaching this for years, the windmills," Trump argued.
"And they don't work," Trump falsely claimed.
In 2019, The Washington Post writer Karen Heller described windmills as Trump's "one true nemesis."
"He doesn’t like them the way the British feel about the French, the way Aaron Burr felt about Hamilton, the way everyone feels about the New England Patriots. ( The way most of us feel about Donald himself ) Except the president’s persistent nemesis is inanimate," Heller wrote.
"Trump is like Cervantes’s Don Quixote, who tilted at windmills — that is, jousted — believing they might be monstrous giants. What have wind turbines ever done to Trump?"
John Bellamy Comments:
You really do have to laugh. If you do not and you take it all seriously, then you will REALLY fuck yourself up. I mean - just imagine if this was real: Just imagine if a real X President of the USA supported - for instance -
Putin and agree that he was a really very fine fellow and was doing a great job in invading another European country. Just imagine if that same President mocked the disabled - publicly and in front of the worlds press - Just imagine if this president refused to discuss a deadly war and instead made it all about himself and fucking windmills - and I ask you - WOULD YOU VOTE FOR OR TRUST THIS MAN ?
What if it was proven this man had told thousands of lies while damning and destroying other peoples lives and all because he could and wanted to.
It is comical how he gets away with it and appalling how many follow his every word as gospel and do not see anything wrong with mocking the disabled, even war vets - and mocking children with disabilities and anyone and everyone who does not agree with him and even then, you are not safe.
This WAS a president and God Forbid he gets in again. Clearly his Mother never taught him manners or respect.
But - You have to laugh...
The priest said, 'What do you mean, almost?
The man said, 'Well, we got undressed and rubbed together, but then I stopped!
The priest said, Rubbing together is the same as putting it in. You're not to see that woman again. For your penance, say five Hail Mary's and put $50 in the poor box!
The man left the confessional, said his prayers, and then walked over to the poor box. He paused for a moment and then started to leave.
The priest, who was watching, quickly ran over to him saying, 'I saw that. You didn't put any money in the poor box! The man replied, Yeah, but I rubbed the $50 on the box, and according to you, that's the same as putting it in!
