The Measuring Contest

CNN reporters celebrate bong hits and President Trump measures his…on Twitter. Come quickly Lord Jesus.

With CNN reporters covering bong hits and New Orleans drunkenness only months after being offended by a man claiming to like boobs, I guess we are in the serious times that make it par for the course for the President of the United States to have a dick measuring contest on Twitter. You'll have to excuse the bluntness (no CNN puns intended), but that is precisely what the man did.

I can laugh at this. In the grand scheme of things, it is one of the more humorous tweets he has written. And contrary to many on the left, this tweet will not start a nuclear war. But you'll have to excuse my old fashioned views, I just think the President engaging in grade school taunts is beneath the dignity of the office. What's next? "I'm rubber, you're glue?" Or maybe he'll tell Kim Jong Un that his mama's so fat Dora couldn't explore her. For goodness sake, we're talking about the leader of a political party that got its knickers in wads because Barack Obama had his feet up on his own office desk. Now I can tell you exactly what the comments section will be here as people tut-tut me.

Beyond that, the President of the United States should not have to get in a dick measuring contest because he is the President of the United States. That he feels compelled to do so means he does not appreciate the Presidency of the United States. Everyone else already knows the President of the United States has the biggest on the world stage. That the man who inhabits the office feels the need to have to tweet it is a pretty damning indictment on him. It is ridiculously childish and unnecessary, even if it is also really funny to see. Yes Mr. President, you have a bigger, better, redder, firmer button than the tin pot little monster in North Korea. Good on you. You can put your pants back on the dignity of the office now.

At least this is in North Korea's direction instead of an ally's direction.

But before those of you reading this from the left get too smug, just remember Donald Trump is a lagging indicator of where our society is. We have supposedly serious reporters nodding along to a mentally challenged piece at Newsweek suggesting the President blocking people on Twitter is the equivalent of the Iranian despots blocking nationwide access to the internet. That is not a serious argument, but supposedly serious people believe it is. And meanwhile, at CNN, we've got a few drunks in a bar in New Orleans and one holding a joint in Colorado to celebrate the New Year. This is, you may be surprised to know, the straight news, seriously professional network where one is likely to find a pundit suggesting the President is not a good role model. And it essentially suspends real news for one day each year to celebrate the very hedonism that was the precursor to the rise of reality TV presidencies.

Come quickly Lord Jesus.

Wow. When did Erick become so obsessed with Trump's manly parts? In another post he copied a tweet where he said of Steven Miller "He needed to show himself as a loyal fluffer for the President .." Erick's mind seems to lurch directly into Trump's underwear lately and quite honestly it's getting a little creepy. He's also indulging in some crass and crude verbiage and it's a little surprising. But then I am new to the site, so maybe Erick has always been a penis-obsessed potty mouth. I really prefer posts with substance and content. Are we going to get back to that?

I agree with you. It will cost you die-hard Trump minions, though, but one of the reasons out of all the conservative pundits scrabbling for our attention and support that I follow you is that you aren't afraid to speak truth even to your friends. Good on you. - Tom King

Erick, I think your vulgar reading of Trump's comment is out of line. He was bragging, yes. Too much so... probably, but nothing was said that would point to the innuendo you brought it to. You forget that we've had far more vulgar POTUS's in this office - LBJ, Andrew Jackson, both Roosevelts and one other that I can't remember right now were known to be quite vulgar - so this bit of "my button's bigger" doesn't even com close. Your bias is showing.

Wait. What??
Erick, I love you like you were one of my own. In this one, however, I'm thinking the eggnog got to you. This is a crazy connection: Trump's ridicule of North Korea's little tin-pot dictator’s many FAILED, non-working missiles that ended up in Davy Jones' Locker, pointing out to said cretin that the United States' missile button ACTUALLY WORKS, and thinking it was double entendre, comparing Trump's private part to the dictator’s??
I know Trump can be boorish and even vile at times. But that wasn't what Trump was saying at all.
The humor stands on its own: how ridiculous RocketMan and his pomposity is, compared to the U. S. military. A jab that our missile button actually WORKS. That's it. That was all. It was enough.
I know you are under a LOT of pressure these days. But this might be one post you would be better served by taking down. I still truly love you, my brother. Truly.
