What do those suckers and losers know?

What a wrongly mournful article.

Some of his followers can look forward to a military "send-off" in a few days.
 
2021-01-15 11:35:12 PM  
I guess if he gets his wish about firing squads, and a treason conviction, he may end up with a 21 gun salute.

Time will tell.

And tick tock, Donny.
Tick tock.

"It's a shame, but not a surprise."

You can fark right off with that bullshiat.  Do presidents who try a coup to stay in office usually get a formal military sendoff?  I guess they do, but it's more firing squad and less ceremony.

Well, he's been using the military as a showpiece for his toughness and murrikahness that it is should be a welcome relief for all.

The last time Trump appeared before troops was the Dec. 12 Army-Navy game at West Point.

We're not counting the ones who attacked the Capitol after attending his Jan 6 rally?
 
2021-01-16 3:32:17 AM  
maybe, but did you know he's getting a paste-eater sendoff?

He apparently instructed his remaining staff that he wanted a "military style" send-off. I honestly wouldn't know what that meant, if someone asked me to do it. I wonder how many people they have to work with, who would willingly stand there cheering for him.

Someone is going to have to work really hard not to make it feel like a Kirk Cameron birthday party. I'm really effing glad it's not my job.

I think you might be misreading the author a bit.  The "shame" that the author's referring to is the shambles that Trump's presidency ended in and how the military through no fault of their own will miss out on a tradition.  Think of it as an elementary school class missing out on an ice cream party because the teacher was pulled over for a DUI.  It would be a shame for the kids to miss out, but it's not their fault.

I actually would not have minded seeing a military band ready to play him off as he boards Air Force One for the last time, only for the tuba and brass to play the "fail" theme from "The Price Is Right".

he probably still wanted tanks at the WH, but obviously couldn't even have the "send-off" in DC since it will be so locked down for Uncle Joe. so I assume that's why something was mentioned about AF-1 stopping at Andrews - I imagine in hopes of a military tribute for free.

/eh just tell him there's a squadron of F-35s overhead

Where's the Fark betting pool for how long before top Generals come forward with absolute bonkers orders they refused to follow and what those orders were?

I got money to put on 3 days, and he tried to call in a drone strike on BLM protesters.

Yes tisk tisk everyone.  🤡

God what bullshiat rationale.  Let's give the cheese-pig a free pass and treat him like an honourable man because ... oh fark knows there's always one asshole who tries this line.
 
2021-01-16 3:57:04 AM  
After insulting them for five years, this isn't a surprise.  Anyone in the military who still likes him, only does it because they share the same white nationalist ideas.
 
2021-01-16 3:57:19 AM  
Good.  That orange douche can't be bothered to show up for his own change of command ceremony.  Why should the troops waste a day performing a dog and pony show for his draft-dodging ass?

It's unclear whether Trump has any relationship with the troops.His love for them could be as sincere as any president, given the gravity of the office and the daily experiences with those offering him and his family personal protection.

Hahahahahaha...sure, it COULD be sincere. And my penis COULD be inside a lovely lady right now...but it isn't.

You ever had to teach kids? That's why the teacher got a DUI...while driving the kids to the ice cream party.

Who cares, I want to see what he looks like when his plastic whore leaves him for being "not the presidents son"  and, you owe 2 billion dollars on 1 billion dollars of property, how did you all manage this besides treason?

I had a couple of kids but I never had to teach them.  The trick is to sell them when they're babies and still cute.  That way you get too dollar.  If you wait even a couple of years they just become bratty toddlers and the market price goes way down.

Can't commit treason if you're on the duty roster stopping treason and wanna keep your cover for when the real revolution is declared by Trump on 64chan or whatever dumpster fire of a platform lets him back on via the secret code in the punctuation.

Sad, but hopefully next week's peaceful.

They could make him walk the plank.

When you attempt a coup, and actively order the military to not intervene, or actively interfere with kitting up Guard units, you don't get gratitude from the brass or the rank and file. This is just further repudiation that the US military has no interest in Donnie's Dumbest junta.

ox45tallboy: I actually would not have minded seeing a military band ready to play him off as he boards Air Force One for the last time, only for the tuba and brass to play the "fail" theme from "The Price Is Right".


My preference would be for "Entrance of the Gladiators". Looks impressive when written down, but brings something else to mind when played...

Worst part about this is someone told him, he got pissed, ordered one up, so now his departure to West Palm will be treated like a diplomatic state visit departure with 21 gun salute and everything.
I hate this timeline so much

presidents on the way out who attempt a coup to stay in power aren't usually given the "oh you rascal" treatment and allowed to remain in charge for the last few weeks still.

I was just talking to someone who thinks all those troops are in DC as part of Trumps secret master plan to arrest "all the traitors" and "restore the rightful president." That's why they are all stationed in the capitol. And when they try and inaugurate Biden and not say "whoops, we were wrong. Trump definitely won." That will be the the final evidence they need to swoop in, and round up "everyone responsible", and that Pelosi and the dems are too stupid to realize that's why they are there. That the troops have to follow the orders of "the real president."
I said "I am like 99.99999% positive thats not going to happen. They are there to keep the same thing as last time from happening."
"No, Trump has a plan. You just wait."

There are going to be a LOT of disappointed people on the 20th.
