This Simpsons' take on Trump's first 100 days should not be missed.

Courtesy of Raw Story: 

The skit begins in the White House with Trump in bed surrounded by numerous books including The Little Book of Big Bombs and Killing a Good Thing—authored by ousted Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly. 

Trump runs down his “many accomplishments” in the last 100 days. “Lowered my golf handicap, my Twitter following increased by 700 and, finally, we can finally shoot hibernating bears—my boys will love that,” he says. 

In the press room of the White House, meanwhile, the job of trying to manage Trump’s media image has become too much for Sean Spicer—himself the subject of much ridicule and criticism for his remarks. Spicer is seen hanging by his neck and holding a sign that reads, “I quit.” 

Fellow Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway stumbles upon the grim scene and quickly runs away, saying: “I am not replacing him.” Probably a wise decision. 

The spoof also lampoons first daughter, Ivanka Trump, who is appointed to the Supreme Court, replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Personally I think we should all get in as many good laughs as possible before we completely lose the ability to recognize humor. 

Though admittedly that is already becoming difficult as the actual Trump presidency feels like one long episode of the Simpsons.

And a poorly written one at that.

    The Specter of Illegitimacy Haunts Trump’s First 100 Days

    ...The most shocking degradation of office is the lowering of the standards of the office he has carried out. Whatever doubts Trump inspired about his fitness for office seem naïve in comparison to what has transpired. The president is childlike, impulsive, ignorant, and ostentatiously lazy. He refuses either to perform his job or to delegate it to others. Instead, his staff tiptoes around as though they have taken custody of a child monarch. “If you’re an adviser to him, your job is to help him at the margins,” one Trump friend told Politico. “To talk him out of doing crazy things.”

    Conservatives Angry That Biased Media Accurately Reports Who Gets Trump Tax Cuts

    ...So when Trump unveiled his tax plan this week, the most important revelation was that Trump’s promise was not actually true. His plan describes a massive tax cut for the rich.

    A number of conservatives — Kimberley Strassel, Rich Lowry, Guy Benson — took exception to a New York Times headline emphasizing the plan’s regressive nature. But the fact that the plan would overwhelmingly and disproportionately benefit the affluent is not only undeniable, but is the sole, clear effect of an otherwise hazy proposal.

    Cutting taxes on affluent people has been the Republican Party’s number-one policy objective for more than a quarter century.

    ...However, since this policy is highly unpopular with the public, Republicans have grown habituated to obscuring this intent. Their messaging is built around lying about, or obscuring, the distributional impact of their tax policies. In the past, they have had a lot of success bullying the mainstream news media into treating the distributional impact of their policies as a contested question of partisan spin, rather than something that can be measured in fairly straightforward fashion. So, now that Republicans have rolled out another massively regressive tax cut, they’re going to spend a lot of time insisting that the news media should not report this fact.

    We Never Trumpers Tried to Warn You

    Everything we feared a Trump presidency would mean is happening, and fast.

      " for 100 days is akin to dealing with a newborn baby for three months. The late nights, unpredictability, the constant need for attention, the crying—it’s an eerie parallel."

    We set a low bar for Trump. He still failed to meet it.

    As we cross the finish line of President Trump’s first 100 days, no leader in recent memory has benefited more from low expectations. A more typical president who tumbled from an approval rating in the high 60s to one in the low 40s would be in a political crisis. Trump’s current performance is only a slight dip from his divisive norm. A president with pretensions of rhetorical coherence would be embarrassed by gaffes and mediocre speeches. For Trump, gaffes and inarticulateness are part of the package. A president with high standards of integrity would be mortified by a brewing scandal that seems to involve smarmy aides and a foreign government. For Trump, well, what would you expect?

    Suicide played for laughs? Not funny in any context.

      Political suicide. I had a cousin that took his life, and a couple kids that went to high school with me. I didn't take it that way at all.

      I don't think it's funny either. My mother hanged herself in the garage when she was 40.

    100 days in, Howard Stern was 100% right about Donald Trump

    .... "I loved my previous life. I had so many things going," he said. "This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier."

    12 days into Trump's presidency, Stern, the radio shock jock and Trump's longtime friend, publicly predicted this moment. During the Feb. 1 broadcast of his show, Stern said he'd told Trump early on that the presidency wouldn't be good for him.
    "I really was sincere, I said, 'Why would you want to be the president of the United States? You're not going to be beloved, it's going to be a f*cking nightmare in your life," Stern recalled telling Trump in audio first flagged by CNN's KFile.
    "He stepped into a situation that's really not a win for him," he added. "He's a 70 year-old guy, he's got a great life, gorgeous wife, great kids, he's got helicopters, airplanes, all the accoutrements of the great life... so now to step into this f*cking mess, and for what? There are people who are better suited for this kind of thing.
    "He didn't need this in his life."

    .... Stern said he believed the presidency wouldn't be a "healthy experience for Trump."

    "I know something about Donald Trump, he really does want to be loved," Stern said. "He does want people to really love him. That drives him a lot. I think that he has a very sensitive ego and when you're president of the United States, people are going to be very very critical."....

    Pretty much the only things I watch on TV is Simpsons, Futurama, Archer, South Park and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Tosh.0, The Daily Show and At Midnight.

    I'm completely opposed to "real world news" but many of these shows do a fine job of addressing the madness, but without some humor, I just don't need to be exposed to it.

    I don't like Spicer, but I feel bad for the guy. He has an impossible job. So yah, that's not funny.

    1. Anonymous3:50 PM

      Yes, telling the truth is so hard and remembering all the lies is even harder.

      Boo Hoo, poor spicy boy, if he hates it so much he could quit, but obviously he enjoys lying to the American public.

    I white-knuckled it 'til 1:05, then screamed like I was on the 'Raptor' roller coaster at Cedar Point on the coast of Lake Erie...

  16. It almost makes me wish "Designated Survivor" would become life imitating art.

    I was watching an episode at my Mom's house and she turns to me and asks "Who is our Secretary of housing?" and I told her "Ben Carson".

    We were silent for the rest of the episode.

    BTW My 87 year old Mom is a lifetime Republican but even she didn't vote for Trump.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
