(The Raw Story)   In a happy ending of sorts, the Former Snekretary finally got his fondest wish and got to shake the Pope's hand. The flash of white light and burning to a pile of ashes afterwards? Eh, probably not as happy-making   ( rawstory.com) divider line

I see no evidence Spicey shook his hand.

Good. If only as a belated FU to Two Scoops for being such a petty, tiny, vindictive, little man. Now, quietly drift off into the mists of obscurity, Shouty Spice. Bye bye.

I feel the same way.

I said it in a redlit thread, but I am genuinely happy about this. What Trump did was shabby.

How many practicing Catholics are in the 45 Administration? Trump is nominally Presbyterian, we know about Jared and Ivanka. How many, if any, of the Cabinet?

I feel like this is a teachable moment for the rest of Trump's minions.  Leave him, and you too can fulfill your dreams.

That was heartwarming in a strange way that I can't quite pinpoint.  Maybe it was that we all suffered through those pressers with only each other to keep us sane, and a stick arm snek was born of the anguish to entertain us all while giving some perspective to the absurdity of it all.  Thanks man, it has been a fun story.
I like to think Spicer escaped with a little bit of his soul in tact, and he maybe actually felt a ping of shame today when meeting the holiest of holys.
You have been killing it since day 1, for that I commend you.  This has been a solid streak of original content that is rare on this site, especially when it is so consistently entertaining and clever. 
The Beast is just angering and depressing in comparison, her contempt for the press is glaring.  Spicey at least flailed and tried and flailed some more, but you could tell he honestly wanted to be liked by someone.
Anyone.
Well, at least we like the Snek.

Screw Spicer, he deserved to be snubbed and miss the chance.  He willingly lied daily to the american public and covered up for Trump.  He's a piece of shiat, and it was karma that got him snubbed by the man he sold his soul for in the first place, and he's done nothing to correct that since he left.

Clearly this is just trying to coverup the truth.

The last time I had such a desire to meet one of my heros was imagining Gene Simmons standing in the doorway of my bedroom in 1979.

It's pretty much the only time I felt sympathy for Spicer. Like him or not, that was just bullying by Trump. It says a lot about how foul of a man our president is when he can make people side with someone like Spicer.
 
2017-08-29 11:04:49 PM  
Kudos, Spice. You deserve it.

As a fellow Catholic, what Trump did to Spencer was incredibly cruel.  I am glad Sean was able to meet Pope Francis.

I don't know or care, but it would be nice if the cool pope put a little hellfire to them all the same.

I mean, why else do you a bunch creepy faux cannibals in dresses and silly hats their own theocratic country in the middle of Rome if not for them to entertain?

2017-08-29 11:48:36 PM  
I like to think that Spicey wanted to confess.

I lied, Dear Jesus did I lie, but forgive me.

And all would be forgiven. That's how religion works.

And I would have forgiven him, like a compassionate atheist.

That, however, is not the story here, so fark him with a fiery rake.
 
2017-08-29 11:54:36 PM  
I'd like to think the Pope let him know he had his chance to stand up for what was right and moral and completely squandered it.

I'm going to pretend I know that's what he said.
 
2017-08-30 12:30:17 AM  
Good for Snek! I could sit here and talk trash on his former boss, or faith. Rather I would like to congregate him on meeting his spiritual leader and wish him the best going forward. At the very least he had the spine/fortitude to GTFO early.
 
2017-08-30 12:35:51 AM  
Hell, meeting the Pope utterly broke Boehner and shamed him into resigning on the spot. Maybe it'll do that asshole some good, even if he's been out for a while already.
 
2017-08-30 01:06:18 AM  
I'm just going to explain the thought process I had when I saw this headline cuz it's boggling:

"Sean Spicer got to meet the Pope?  That cool.  I'm glad...wait...why I am I happy about that paid liar getting anything?  Seriously.  What's wrong with me.  No wait.  It's freakin' the Snekretary.  Damn it, impaler.  You've gotten in my head and made my happy positive feelings about a dangerous, highly venomous snake with stick arms carry over to another dangerous, highly venomous snake with stick arms (but no eyebrows).  What the hell man."

I had forgotten about that episode of pettiness from Trump.

Such a small, petty bully of a man.

Meh, it's like trying to remember a single rain drop in the middle of a shiatstorm at this point.  The torrent of shiat coming out of the white house just makes you forget about the tiny snubs.  Poor dude licked Trumps ass for months, and yet he was denied meeting the pope while he was in the visiting entourage.

Personally, I'm happy for Spicer, and Impaler's Snek made me happy for a couple hours.   That's all I can ask at this point.

Meanwhile, Anthony Scaramucci missed the birth of his son, was divorced by his wife, and was dismissed by Trump in less than a week.
 
2017-08-30 04:34:43 AM  
I would like to think that Snekretary will have an p of sorts after meeting with His Holiness, and will come clean in the next couple of weeks.  After all, as said above, look what happened when Boner met him.  People of tremendous TRUE charisma, such as The Pope, have that power of true believers.

At least we can hope that he will tell all that happened behind the scenes, preferably under oath ad in the House Chambers

Without him, though, we wouldn't have Snekretary. Just as order shall come from chaos, one of Fark's all time legends (Snekretary) came from a Trumplodite derplord with the worst social anxiety disorder on Earth (Sphincter Spicer).

At this point, I think it's time we ditch the whole Pope thing and let Snekretary do those world tours.

That reminds me of a Gene Simmons joke back in the day.

Two guys are busy talking about their "successes" at the bar.  Neither have been doing well, being unremarkable and not earning a lot of money.

But there is this rather ugly guy that takes a booth near the back, not far from the bathrooms.  Both have noticed that every night he sits there, he leaves with some hot looking babe.

"I don't get it." said the first guy to his buddy.  "He's sure one ugly farker".  The second guy says, "Yeah, and he barely even talks to them - all he does is sit there and licks his eyebrows when they go tot he bathroom".
