Why yes, I am tired of all this winning. Why do you ask?

He's also building an invisible wall along the Mexico border
And implementing an invisible repeal and replace
And invisible tax reform
And his invisible clothes he wears to his next rally will be tremendous

The President's New Planes.

Trump's presidency is like the worst 'Make A Wish' ever to be granted to the worst kid on the planet.
Except that kid is an adult, and instead of having cancer, he is just a narcissistic petulant little shiat of a man.
 
2017-10-04 04:20:10 PM  
Just FYI, folks, if Trump's cronies are literally going to grift away the funds before there's any delivery then no one can literally see the planes.

If they are not, then what does Wonder Woman fly, libs?

Trump is truly master of zen bullshiat.
 
2017-10-04 05:14:58 PM  
Well, Maybe he let slip some highly classified cloaking/shroud technology.  In which case....uh...well, I guess that would still be a pretty dumb move.
 
2017-10-04 05:35:02 PM  
That money sure as hell disappeared.
 
2017-10-04 05:44:07 PM  
Maybe he misunderstood that you just don't see them flying.

Thank goodness we elected a political outsider. His ignorance of even basic, common knowledge facts about the world is really shaking things up!

yep. nothing to see there.
 
2017-10-04 05:47:08 PM  
So, this reminds me of an issue I've always had with Wonder Woman (grew up on the Lynda Carter version and the cartoon, so forgive me if the recent movie explained this,) so she has an invisible plane, right? But she's still visible! Doesn't seeing a seated woman flying thru the air raise more questions than just a plane would?

This has been bothering me for 40 years.

Oh, and DTS is an idiot.

How many more of Trump's nonsensical utterances and tantrums must we endure before same people remove him from office? He's like the gun control debate: everybody agrees he's horrible and dangerous, but nobody does something about him.

Seriously, what will it take to "25" 45? Him wandering around the West Wing in his robe and slippers like Vincent "The Chin" Gigante?

Also, is there any subject at all on which Trump isn't a complete moron and imbecile?

I'm tired of this guessing game.

I think it won't be regarded at all. The US reached its peak in Clinon's time. The rest is falling, management of the falling, and falling again.

The real story will be the growth of India and China. The US is just a sideshow by comparison.

The F-35 is such a farking boondoggle, and we're going to order more?

Imagine being a reporter and having to ask Mattis or Sanders if the President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of the largest millitary on Earth understands that stealth planes are not actually invisible.

This is what we elected. We wanted this.

You need Aquaman when there is an island in the water. Big water. Ocean water.

Yeah, speaking of China:

The end of stealth? New Chinese radar capable of detecting 'invisible' targets 100km away
 
2017-10-04 05:54:00 PM  
Oh, come on.  Trump doesn't actually think the F-35's are invisible.

It's more accurate to just say 'Trump doesn't actually think'
 
2017-10-04 05:55:00 PM  
Obviously he waa talking about those models that actually meet the design's expectations.   All the one's the public's seen has not been on par

This is just proof that the Philadelphia Experiment worked, and that we finally have a President who is transparent, much like our jets (literally)

Ha! Entanglement-as-stealth-detection. Interesting and entirely likely.

You know what would be really funny?
If a big tree or a giant boulder fell on his head.
 
2017-10-04 05:58:14 PM  
My hope is that one day in the not-too-distant future we will all look back at this trainwreck presidency and have a sensible chuckle.

I also hope I'm getting a pony for Christmas.

Trump brought up the F-35 during his Briefing on Hurricane Maria Relief Efforts because it's the only thing he remembers about the Air Force from his morning breifing:

https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/10/03/remarks-presid​e​nt-trump-briefing-hurricane-maria-relief-efforts
THE PRESIDENT: And a lot of people got to see the real Coast Guard during this incredible trouble, and especially I think here and in Texas was incredible what they did. So thank you all very much. Thank you very much. We appreciate it. Really appreciate it. Would you like to say something on behalf of your men and women?
AIR FORCE REPRESENTATIVE: Sir, I'm representing the Air Force.
THE PRESIDENT: No, I know that.
AIR FORCE REPRESENTATIVE: It's been a tremendous team effort partnering with FEMA and NORTHCOM, providing support now (inaudible) also to U.S. Virgin Islands and to Puerto Rico, specifically trying to open up the airfields so that we can get -- as an island -- get the majority of the supplies and (inaudible) with the people and personnel setting up across the island, set up logistics networks so we could really get to people that are the most hurt and devastated by the catastrophe.
THE PRESIDENT: And the runways now are pretty open?
AIR FORCE REPRESENTATIVE: Yes, sir. We have four major runways that are fully open and operational; flown about 700-plus strategic airlift sorties to and from OCONUS, (inaudible) Puerto Rico to provide life-sustaining support.
THE PRESIDENT: Amazing job. Amazing job. So amazing that we're ordering hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of new airplanes for the Air Force, especially the F-35. Do you like the F-35?
AIR FORCE REPRESENTATIVE: (Inaudible) game-changing technology, awesome airplane.
THE PRESIDENT: I said, how does it do it in fights? And how do they do in fights with the F-35? They said, we do very well. You can't see it. Literally you can't see it. So it's hard to fight a plane that you can't see, right?
AIR FORCE REPRESENTATIVE: Sir, we like that.
THE PRESIDENT: But that's an expensive plane that you can't see. And as you probably heard, we cut the price very substantially -- something that other administrations would never have done, that I can tell you. So thank you very much.
 
Ehh
2017-10-04 05:58:51 PM  
It turns out that you can see a stealth plane. Not many people know that, but it's true. They're just really quiet and sneaky. Only a few people know.

That would be a "miracle"

The Onion needs to stop injecting satire into mainstream news, it's making the US look silly.
