So there are legitimate journalists and then there's this guy. Dude 1 said this, Dude 2 replied. End of story. Not a fan of lazy journalism but this is the crap that feeds the fake news claims and undermines everyone.

Mnuchin knows that isn't the American flag, right?

Did he update it, cause I looked again and saw the American flag.

Which is worse. He deleted it. And then reposted his stupidity

There's nothing that trust fund Wall Street d-bags hate more than someone who actually created their own wealth.

Just be grateful it wasn't the Confederate flag.

The musician had earlier in the evening categorized Mnuchin as "officially an a__hole...." The Treasury secretary ... quipped to Rose: "What have you done for the country lately?"

Just like an asshole would do.

Why is this fake news?  It's real unimportant news, which is Fark's thing.

Now Mnuchin should have just ignored this Tweet and his minions would have taken care of arguing with Axl. Then he wouldn't look like an idiot.

This seems like the opposite of fake news. Dude 1 DID say this and Dude 2 DID reply.

It's lazy and stupid, but far from fake.

I'm sorry, but the vast majority of eligible voters deserve this shiatty, Twilight Zone government. In 2016, over 70% of them either voted Trump or didn't vote at all.

Axl Rose is a farking moron. How could it take anyone so long to figure out Mnuchin is an ahole?

GAh! I live in a world where I'm rooting for Axl. farkKK.

It would be so satisfying, if the GOP lose this election and the incoming pres gets to kick all these greedy Trump sycophants to the curb.

And the AG replacement for Toady Barr promptly serves these grifters with indictments.

Be thankful for the little things
But little things are all Steve seems to give.

What good has Mnuchin EVER done for the country?  He's a taker, like the rest of his ilk.  He will take from you and I til there's nothing left.  Axl at least gave us a few kick ass albums.  He's never hurt an entire country of people.  Sure he's a d-bag in his own right, but that's nothing compared to Mnuchin, especially when you consider scale.

2020-05-07 8:24:56 AM  
Here's what happened.  Mnuchin's wife once mentioned that she liked Axl Rose when she was younger and he's thinking "Oh, shiat.  Now that she's got my money, she could easily dump me for the bad boy she really wants."  He's got a hair trigger.

farking right wingers. These people mooch and steal from America, spread the plague around like farking plague rats, never contribute anything to our society or culture and then have the balls to say to someone else "what have you done lately".

I bet he paid his taxes and isn't spreading around typhoid Trump's orange plague like you farking disease vector farks.

Have axl ask him where my farking stimulus payment is. It's been about a month since everyone else got theirs and nobody seems to give a fark about getting them out after the initial rush. Then I see talk of a second payment? Will people get two before i get my first?

Same.

For people that owe me money, these Trump farkers sure have a lot of time in their hands

C'mon, you know Mnuchin has a Massey Prenup.

She's not getting nothing.  She wouldn't sign a prenup like that, and no lawyer would advise her too.  A gold digger isn't getting married with a prenup that says she gets nothing.  She's getting enough to live in luxury and never have to work again.
 
2020-05-07 8:46:37 AM  
Axl Rose has done way more for this country than that farking sleazeball has ever done.  Sure, all he did was give us a lot of terrible music but it's still more than Mnuchin will ever do.  I wonder if Mnuchin bought his hu-mon suit off the same rack as Ted Cruz.

So this had nothing to do with that guy blasting GNR at the factory the other day? This is just a completely separate moment between this administration and Axl Rose? Also, it's not the Twilight Zone, subby, It's Eddie Murphy's Raw.

It takes talent and years of dedication to out-asshole Axl Rose.

Over 73% voted for Clinton or didn't vote at all.

Over 49% voted for Jill Stein or didn't vote at all!

Axl Rose seems more competent than our current treasury secretary. Someone give me a hit of pcp please.
 
2020-05-07 9:26:05 AM  
When Axl Rose and Steve Mnuchin have a spat and Rose seems like the lesser asshole, then Mnuchin is REALLY an asshole.

And AFAIK, no-one's accused Rose of being a thief, much less one of massive proportions but protected from consequences by wealth and power.

You're not exactly making the point you think you're making there, Corky. That's the point. Axl Rose is a loathsome person and a miserable musician. And he's still better than that mnoron Mnuchin.
