He's an asshole, but he's our asshole

No, he's really not. He's only his own asshole. He'll throw the lot of you under the bus if it means public adulation or money for him.

I've never really wanted to have my own asshole (other than the anatomical one). They make horrible pets, I'm sure.

Having one around constantly would be unbearably annoying.

fark Duncan Hunter.

How was he able to speak that sentence with Trump's cock in his mouth?

So we're reduced to stalking random college bros and spying on their conversations in a bar to find something offensive about Trump's support now?  Nobody important, just literally some random jobless farker who isn't even notable at school?

Huh, Trump must actually be levelling out and becoming a great president if this is how far people have to reach to criticize him.

// For the sarcasm-impaired, no, I don't think Trump is actually a good president, and the implication of the above joke is that the idiot who wrote TFA is just validating the administration with faint criticism.  There, I just saved our collection of people with limited reading comprehension their usual parking-lot donuts of outrage.

The best part is no hat every thread can be about a different asshole. We would never run out of assholes to talk about - not in the politics tab, not in the sports tab, not in the business tab, and not in the entertainment tab. I don't know about the geek tab. I'm sure there are plenty of assholes, but are any of them interesting enough to get a whole thread?

Context is important... a variation of this phrase was vaulted into political popularity when Harry Truman is supposed to have said "He's a Bastard, but he's Our Bastard." of the brutal and murderous Nicaraguan US-backed Dictator Somoza.

What's it say that this is being said of our current Gilt-pot dictator?

This is REALLY not the tone or precedent we want right now...  rrrrrrrreally not.

In case you needed a reminder for your weekend... NONE OF THIS IS NORMAL.

If it was interesting enough to be greenlit it would have happened on the day it happened.  A week and a half later for something as minor as this seems odd even by Fark standards.

Did you read a different article than I did?  I ask because the one I read was about Duncan Hunter, a Republican member of the US House of Representatives from California, and not just "some random jobless farker who isn't even notable at school."  Duncan Hunter may be all of those things, but as a member of congress he isn't exactly a nobody.

Also, if you say his name three times you summon him.

And there must be some time limit.  I've said "adolf hitler" more than three times in my life and I haven't summoned him yet.  Maybe it's three times in 10 seconds?

It was derogatory? Good, then you didn't miss the intent.

Criticism of the President is...it's normal. It's natural. It's necessary. He IS our employee. He works for us, not the other way around, and I don't think that he gets that. Well, there's a lot that I suspect that he doesn't get, but if he is YOUR asshole, then guess what, you need to be far MORE critical of him, because he represents you and your platform and party, and is also your responsibility. Your own party should just as critical and even more so, because of that fact.

Demand better from your own. Demand better and expect better. Stop just accepting that your candidates are going to be jackasses, and pick better people. It's why I left the party, because the party has no stomach for crafting policy that isn't short sighted and often mean spirited and based on greed and often just plain spite. Donnie is a good representation of that fact, and if that shocks you...you haven't been paying the f*ck attention for a while then.

"He's an asshole but he's our asshole."

I have a special dislike of the word 'but'.  It's usually a way of saying 'ignore the part of the sentence before this'.

Much like the 'I'm not racist but...'

fark 'em. He's your asshole.  Do something about it you choad chomping dingleberries!
