So it's okay to call her Sarah the Hutt now right?

Yes, the American people seem to like it! Sarah  Sarah two by four can't get through the kitchen door, while a bit long winded is rapidly gaining popularity!

This just proves that Trump is the greatest American hero.

Good to know that it was all Trump's idea to be an international embarrassment.

And he's proud of that. It's bizarre.

His first UN speech was a disgrace to not just this country, but to the UN. He's all but destroyed the UN Security Council's efforts - which he demanded, mind you - to rein in North Korea. He's trashed any chance of diplomatic discussion with Venezuela, which, I'm sure, is going to thrill PDVSA. He's threatened nuclear annihilation - how else would you interpret "totally destroy" from a man who famously said "we have nuclear weapons - why aren't we using them?" - of a country smack dab in the middle of one of a fairly important area of the world.

And this is the White House's reaction? That this was a masterful attempt at "branding?" Are they insane?

*middle of a fairly important area - forgot to delete a chunk of that sentence...

In all fairness to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, that's probably not even the dumbest thing she'll say today.
 
2017-09-20 09:46:55 AM  
Every American should be proud that their president, Donald Trump, turned a UN address into a bad episode of Maury.

Yes

I think the answer to this question has been fairly obvious for some time.

She's just "priming the pump" for his next outrageous claim.

Dammit!

I'm less concerned about his sassy use of "Rocket Man" than I am of the threat of genocide of the North Koreans.

The way she said it was similar to when a special education teacher shows the parents the Captain Awesome puff paint tee shirt little Timmy Helmets made in class today.

Trump takes a shiat on the Oval Office carpet, and his aides line up to ooh and ahh over how big and manly and original it is. He grins his grin and gives a thumbs up, points at people, thumbs up, pointing, OK sign, pointing, thumbs up.

Then he turns on FAUX and waits to see the chyron on what a manly doodoo he produced.

How many times did she get kicked by the Huckabee family mule?

Rocket Man reminds me most of Big Bang Theory. Except tn this case Trump and li'l Un are both Fruit Loops.

I can conceive of absolutely no scenario under which such a label is appropriate.

"...a notoriously thin-skinned, nuclear-armed world leader. "

Sure they're not talking about Trump there?

FTA:"Well, I'll tell you George, it worked. I was talking to a president of an African country yesterday and he actually cited 'Rocket Man' back to me"

Which is pretty vague given that the president of an African country might have said "What the fark is wrong with your idiot president to use the term Rocket Man?" Snake oliers gonna oil I guess.

I prefer to not rely on criticisms of her physical appearance. It's not like she hasn't said enough shiatty things to be critical of.

"Nicknames."

We already know he doesn't read too well, it's not surprising he can't remember funny weird foreign names so he just comes up with simple replacements.

Not to mention, she can give you the stank eye from across state lines.

Yeah, I don't think anyone was doubting Trump came up with that particular brilliant zinger. He's a real wordsmith like Mencken or Chesterton.

He has powers that he doesn't really understand, he's flailing around like he lost the instruction manual, and he's getting bossed around by a cranky g-man?
 
2017-09-20 10:04:52 AM  
If "Rocket Man" is supposed to represent the height of Trump's wit, I can't imagine how SHS (or anyone) can see this as a compliment.

Not nearly enough.

Try as you will Sarah, you're not going to SNL or the Emmys. If you're lucky, you'll burn in hell.

What and who can be helped here?  Fark anyone associated with the Trump administration; they don't deserve the benefit of polite responses with the way they behave.

FTA: Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt noted the criticism, telling Sanders that "a lot of people in the mainstream media didn't like the comment, the 'Rocket Man' comment," to which Sanders replied, "that usually means you're doing something right. If the mainstream media thinks it's bad, then it's probably - most Americans probably like it."

There we have it....  The official stance of this administration is "Suck it libs."

I'm more inclined to believe that said conversation never happened.
