the year is 2017. a ufo lands in your backyard. out steps a group of aliens.

you gasp. “are you here to find our leader and kill him??”

the alien in front seems alarmed. “no, no, we all come in peace, why would you-”

“oh.” you sigh dejectedly. “i just- we have a really bad president. like really evil bad, i just thought-” you start to tear up.

the alien places a hand on your shoulder. “hey now, it’s okay, maybe you can tell us all about him and we’ll- we’ll see what we can do.”

Me, not even 6 months ago: Trump is going to be president and bad things are going to happen, but we will survive this. Things can’t get that bad in 4 years.

The World these past 6 months: Hey, did you know that world war 3 is an actual possible thing that could happen in your lifetime?

The World: Also, did you know that climate change is worse than we thought and is going to wreck our shit within the next century?

The World: Hey, check out this trillion ton iceberg that just broke off Antarctica!



Don’t give up. Even if the odds are against you. With some of the recent event in America, I know things look bad, but you have to stay strong. You guys survived bad presidents before. You will over come this too.

This applies to personal things too! Got a bad grade? Don’t give up! Your dedication will never fail you. People don’t believe you can do it? All the more reasons to do better! Have the last laugh.

I believe in you. You go do your thing and show people how much of a boss ass bitch you can be!


James Corden has it BAD for our president guys
(So many puns I am dying)

APH America (and Mexico cause why not) and the States
  • America: Ok calm down everyone! Everything is fine! EVERYTHING IS PERFECTLY FINE!
  • States: NO IT'S NOT!
  • Mexico: Why am I here again? I will kill you if that clown wins.
  • States: AAAAAH!
  • Mexico: Hey New Mexico got blue! That's good right?
  • New Mexico: I mean it's better than Trump I guess.
  • Mexico: Good job. I raised you right.
  • America: HOW ARE YOU CALM?!
  • Mexico: Well it's not my country sooo yeah. I mean I already have a bad president. Welcome to the bad president party my friend.
  • America: Ok everyone that's in the middle of the country! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU!
  • Middle states: WE DON'T KNOW!
  • Mexico: Ok western states. I raised you first so I expect blue ok? Even though she's still bad but still.
  • Western States: *nods*
  • America: They are not yours so shush!
  • Mexico: They used to be mine until YOU decided to take them. And your starting to sound like Trump.
  • America: Don't compare me to that idiot!

Alexander’s day had been extremely trying, to put it mildly. He was exhausted, which wasn’t anything new, but the mishaps had just made everything that much worse. He’d once again worked himself to his limits, often running on less than five hours of sleep per night and an inhuman amount of coffee. He had to. With everything he had on his plate, from the position he’d been given in the cabinet to basically serving as Washington’s assistant and speech-writer and everything in between, he had a workload that no man should ever have to bear. And this particular day had driven him past his breaking point.

Pay close attention to this press conference between Trump and Abdullah. The previous administration drew a red line with chemical weapons and did nothing.
Good or bad, President Trump has to prove himself different from President Obama.

anonymous asked:

Democrats: Trump is going to be a bad president and hes going to do nazi things and oh wow look at him blow up all these countries, so presidential, stand by your president no matter wh

Democrats 3 months ago: Trump is going to bring us into a war, you know, to make himself more popular

Democrats now: Oh well like but that isn’t a bad thing

lee is one of those southern guys who talk about being a southern gentleman but have a confederate flag in front of their house and always talk about how “the south will rise” and like ten trump signs in front of their house and thought hillary would be a bad president because “women are too emotional”

[Part 2] [Part 3]

anonymous asked:

what made Reagan such a bad president

- Racist policies and opposition to busing to desegregate schools
- Cloaked appeals to racism (”welfare queens,” etc.) and overt ones
- Evisceration of labor rights and the welfare state
- Unbelievably bad economic policies designed with the explicit purpose of benefiting the rich
- Doing absolutely nothing about the AIDS crisis even when he had a personal stake in the matter (his friend Rock Hudson had AIDS and died from it)
- Supporting right-wing dictatorships in Africa, Latin America, and elsewhere, and invading Grenada
- Ending FCC’s “fairness doctrine,” leading to the problem with modern right-wing media

Among many, many others

I’m going to travel back to 2005 and tell my past self,  “In 2017, we’re going to have a president so bad that John Yoo writes a NYT Op-Ed about the dangerous overreach of executive power and you’re going to double check that it’s not just another lawyer who happens to have the relatively common name of John Yoo because you will be as gobsmacked in 2017 as you are right now that the dude who wrote the fucking torture memo is sounding the alarm.”

So someone reblogged my girl group post but right under that had a post about how if Trump were a kpop fan he’d stan Mamamoo because they did blackface. Mamamoo shouldn’t have done it, it’s fucked up, they apologized and now know why that’s unacceptable, and no we shouldn’t excuse it, but you can’t reblog a post that literally says how “one 'scandal” is more likely to ruin a female idol’s career than a male’s”  and is about not letting girl groups be held to this impossible standard of perfection and then be reblog a ruthless post about how Mamamoo - who admits they’re wrong and apologizes and has actually wanted to learn from their mistake - is as bad as President Cheetoh - who has never once apologized for anything or been willing to talk about why anything he does is problematic. 

My entire fucking point with that post was to point out how female idols are ridiculed so much more harshly than male idols when they fuck up. Women aren’t inherently more perfect than men. Everyone should be held to the same level of accountability when they make mistakes. 

I’m not defending Mamamoo in any way. Ignorance never excuses problematic behavior. But they did apologize and learned from their mistake and did so quickly after the incident, and people are still dragging them about it nearly 4 months after it happened. I haven’t seen anything about Jackson’s hair controversy for his Pepsi commercial in weeks and it seemed like people weren’t talking about it for long. He also half assed his apology and basically used the “but everyone does it” excuse.
