Ugg...can somebody please throw a bucket of cold water on this harridan. Watching her shrivel up in a puff of steam would be fitting.

from the article:
But one distraught black student said the “Trump” chant reminded her of the sinister tribal drumbeats of Africa.
I would say to her - and what do you know about the sinister tribal drumbeats or any beats of Africa?
fools the lot of them

Old politicians never die, they just smell that way.

I still believe that she is ill, not just mentally, and will not be a force in the 2020 election.

As for De Blasio, we have a problem, we, on both sides of the water, of people who vote for the dispensers of largess. City governments here are big lesions of that sort of thing. You have your own problems, of course, and I wish you all the best in treating them. My recent exposure to Ms Kate has given me great hope for y'all. It does appear, and I realize that we see what looks like a familiar pattern, when it is something else, that the consumers of largess are concentrated in the biggest commercial centers, London being the largest of them all. So your "flyover country" outside the biggest cities, is much like ours, loaded with simple horse sense, and rather contemptuous of the "Deep Thinkers" who are educated enough to believe the ridiculous.

""Deep Thinkers" who are educated enough to believe the ridiculous." Or, educated beyond their intelligence.

Good for wingers that Hillary is still such an amusing target. Without her they might have to pay attention to Trump:

"Far from taking Washington by storm, America’s CEO is out of his depth. The art of political compromise is new to him. He blurs his own interests and the interests of the nation. The scrutiny of office grates. He chafes under the limitations of being the most powerful man in the world. You have only to follow his incontinent stream of tweets to grasp Mr Trump’s paranoia and vanity: the press lies about him; the election result fraudulently omitted millions of votes for him; the intelligence services are disloyal; his predecessor tapped his phones. It’s neither pretty nor presidential."

The illustration in the piece is perfect:


Sorry to hog the thread, but unable to resist remarking that one sure way to not be over-educated is to have attended Trump University:

"Trump paying $25M after judge approves Trump University deal

A judge on Friday approved an agreement for President Donald Trump to pay $25 million to settle lawsuits over his now-defunct Trump University, ending nearly seven years of legal battles with customers who claimed they were misled by failed promises to teach success in real estate."

More interesting is that General Flynn has been the first to beg immunity for ratting out connections between the Trump campaign and Putin's goons. But please, by all means, don't let that dampen your spirits and keep up the hilarity with Hillary.

You're never a hog, Bob, but I suspect that another way "not to be over-educated" is to attend UCLA!

Hello Bob, you write:

the press lies about him; the election result fraudulently omitted millions of votes for him; the intelligence services are disloyal; his predecessor tapped his phones

This is what the rest of us have been saying all along!

Totally off topic but Andra's part of Oz has just had the somewhat dubious pleasure of hosting a cyclone.

Ahoy Andra - is all OK with you?

Have you heard from her Duffers?

Oh Lord that woman is still there! I almost spit coffee on my Russian made keyboard.

That cyclone, according to our weather fibbers, is still having its way with Andra's neighborhood.

Hi backofanenvelope,

I can't claim originality and was only quoting the editors of The Economist summarizing Trump's tweets. The whopper about Obama wire tapping Trump Tower has been denied by the FBI and set off at least 3 investigations into the Trump administration.

David,

Here's a Wikipedia list of Nobel laureates with degrees from UCLA:

Ralph Bunche – recipient of the 1950 Nobel Peace Prize

Richard F. Heck – recipient of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

Robert Bruce Merrifield – recipient of the 1984 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

Elinor Ostrom – recipient of the 2009 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences

Randy Schekman – recipient of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Medicine

Glenn T. Seaborg – recipient of the 1951 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

William F. Sharpe – recipient of the 1990 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences

Oddly enough, the same source lists none for Trump "University".

Gentlemen, Andra is fine, jes' fine! And she has dug up some excellent 'funnies' for Monday morning.

The Economist thinks the EU is the best thing since sliced bread. Who knows what the FBI thinks? Depends on the day of the week.

Bob, that's 7 in 67 years - could do better!

David, do I detect a double standard?

I don't have any standards at all, Bob!
