Carol,

I, personally, don't care much about the Khashoggi business. The fake news media is all in a fuss because God knows why. Hundreds of journalists are killed by Mexican drug cartels every year and not a peep out of anyone. Hell, many journalists themselves know this and still use the drugs the cartels provide.

This is all political bullshit. Saudi Arabia killed one of its own spooks who had gotten out of favor with the Royal Family. The spook ran, tried to cover his ass, but walked into a spook trap and got killed. That's the correct way to frame it. Why on earth WaPo hired a Saudi spook is beyond me. (I smell something awful that should be looked into at WaPo itself for doing that.)

Anyway, I don't believe the press, or even you, give two craps about Khashoggi per se. The essence of all the moral outrage and grandstanding is the following and nothing more.

Don't forget, this is the Trump Humor thread. So let's let 'er rip:

Oh. 

I'm trying to figure out what kind of value this presents to the reader...

There's no argument. There's not even a fight that can entertain the reader.

It's like an animal dropping on the other side of the street...

Carol,

That's a hell of a way to insinuate what President Trump did.

I ain't buying it.

All I see from that kind of message is this:

Your hyperbole called out mine, cousin -- if you are doing analogies, like should be somewhat like. Admittedly I know nothing about Khashoghi (likely spelled wrong) but surely I would have heard if he had personally  caused the execution of a good chunk of  the European population. And the orange man was bad not to be revolted by torture and murder and say so, because I think in fact orange man is, if he would just think about it. Bullies' victims do not always deserve what they get.

That's right, just make shit up. Just outright lie.

Jonathan,

I would have used other words, but you saved me the effort. I was going to comment on that sentence. It's evident that Carol knows nothing about this case and nothing about President Trump's attitudes and actions relative to this case.

Her comments here are a very good case study of how core story (ideology) works to induce people to replace fact with an opposite opinion and believe they are stating fact, i.e., to let their brains run on autopilot while feeding it through osmosis.

Wait until she learns what NPC stands for...

You are not the only one.

The Senate has also voted to deny funding assisting Saudi prosecution of the war in Yemen:

but surely I would have heard if he had personally  caused the execution of a good chunk of  the European population.

Interesting seeing Senator Lindsey Graham Cracker so young. Impeachment and executive pardons add to the political fun. "Aahchoo. Pardon Moi," said President Trump. I was watching an old SNL at 10 before the new show at 11:30 that originated just after Trump's swearing in. It would be hard to imagine more hatred and vile humorless skits especially the fake newscast with Michael Shay (sp.) That guy just does "the news" and it is not funny. But it is awful. You can see the hatred and some sort of self righteous religiosity in his eyes.

Peter,

You will get no argument from me there. Michael Che is only funny (in the more recent times I've seen him) whenever he is not joking about race or politics. And when he does those two, his deadpans are funnier than anything he says.

SNL used to be into humor and satire, not just low-level mockery.

Now they are like old vaudeville shows in backwater counties.

When they do Trump or things related to a MAGA mentality, they get into the same level of humor as mocking Jews for big noses or orientals for slanted eyes. It's just not funny except to people who like that kind of mockery.
