    Uh, how much worse does he have to get before Pence thinks Trump needs to go?

    As I write this on Sunday night (Boise time) I wonder what happens when/if Trump tries to call into Fox & Friends tomorrow morning? :corn:

    I suspect that what's going on is that Pence and company have shoved Trump into the White House basement and are treating him like the crazy uncle no one talks about with the idea of serving as caretakers for the next 10 days. I also suspect that if Trump is listening to anyone, that he's been told it is absolutely game over if he issues a blanket pardon to the Beer Belly Putscher's or if he tries to pardon himself. Tomorrow may be the day we find out if Trump can keep himself under control well enough to last through the 20th or if the republicans decide they've been shit on enough and now it's their turn...

    Pretty sure every new administration gets a deep cleaning when the previous administration leaves. The difference this year, is extra disinfectant or stronger disinfectant will be used.

    The only article I found was in connection with trump, but apparently the cleaning starts at 10:30 on inauguration day and must be completed by 3:30. Everything is stripped, cleaned, and re-placed. All personal items are removed at the previous president's expense and the new president's personal items are placed at the new president's expense.

    Kirsten Gillibrand probably thought she was just making a quip about how gross Trump is ... turns out she was awfully prescient.

    I think it was the PBS series Nova that once did a show about the White House staff and how they handle events like a Presidential transition. Fascinating to learn about.

    :unsure:

    Might have been CBS Sunday Morning. It's been a while.

    How appropriate that this whole thing would end with Trump refusing to pay his bills.

    I remember wanting to give Melania the benefit of the doubt when she first arrived on the scene, you almost wanted to feel sorry for her that she had to put up with and fuck this horrible man

    Then when her assistant released those tapes of her talking, man that chick is ride or die with the Donald - completely buys into all the bullshit

    Really, we all should have known how fucking tone deaf and vapid she was when she started that thing that was against cyber bullying

    Not a good person

    That would be a hell of a photo op.

    I never liked macarena, but why is this put on her? The firsdt whore was not contracted for these sort of things, and I am pretty sure there is no more money to re-negotiate. She is a cunt, and she does not have time for that. Do you really want Jill Biden getting the rona from her?

    Slight change of plans.

    Lady Gaga is in self isolation, @Tererun will be standing in.

    Well, this post aged well (emphasis mine):

    Not only was Donald Trump impeached, but he's a two-time loser.

    It's too bad @Zombie isn't around any more. I heard he died from complications resulting from Trump dementia mixed with a case of anti-masker COVID. :(

    I may not have enough meat, but I do have the most interesting thing to happen to 4kids and lady gaga fandom.


    I might be able to do some cosplay for that.
