Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 05, 2018

Trump boards Air Force One with toilet paper in tow. (Or was it a napkin?) "Excuse me, Mr. President, I believe you have some toilet paper stuck to your shoe" -- said no one. Alas, President Trump made an embarrassing climb into Air Force One on Thursday with what appeared to be some sort of paper product attached to the bottom of his shoe. Video showed him step out of a limousine in front of the aircraft at the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport and start up the staircase with a couple squares of toilet paper or, perhaps, a napkin, billowing in the wind with each step. What about the dozen or so people surrounding him? (Bueller? ... Bueller?) As he reached the top, the president -- seemingly oblivious -- turned around and waved goodbye.

"Historically, toilet paper and shoes have gone together much like humiliating faux pas and deep, tear-inducing belly laughter. Those who had the privilege to see it happen -- either live or later on while watching videos on social media -- couldn't help but share it. CNN political commentator Ana Navarro posted a clip on social media. "Starting the day with a little comic relief," she wrote Friday on Twitter."

This is what the Washington Post-DNC considers "news" when a Republican is in the Whitehouse.

the comments on this thread remind me of the time Obama ordered poupon mustard

or the time he wore a grey suit
or the time he and Michell were giving each other "terrorist fist bumps"

and when I say "reminds me", I mean reminds me that not one of you whiney bitchs had any issues with the reporting, then

Wtf is wrong with you Comrade Shep?

You post a story (of our President embarrassing himself again) and then complain about all the stories being posted that embarrass our President?

Yeah.

That makes sense.

I never imagined toilet paper could actually get caught on shoes. I always figured it was a comedic gag. Like slipping on a banana peel.

Exactly. This is what Dem-friendly outlets are concentrating on less than six weeks from an election:

teeth-gnashing. Not policy. not plans for America's future. not wealth inequality or single-payer.

But instead, are focused on petty humiliation and "look what Trump did!" stories. It's pathetic.

You've had at least seven (7) opportunities to answer a simple, straightforward question in your own words (here, here, here, here, here, here and here), and each time you've proven you're a coward who won't answer it in your own words.

You're exactly the kind of coward you claim Democrats are.

And the reason why you evade SpeakSoftly's question is you know an honest answer from you will brand you the hypocrite you really are.

The exact kind of hypocrite you claim the Democrats are.

That's now at least the 8th time (in addition to here, here, here, here, here, here and here) that you've been asked that very question.

No. I'm not a robot or partisan shill. I agree with much of Bernie's votes and positions. but not every word he's ever uttered.

I believe he's the real deal when it comes to honesty, integrity, and policy that benefits all Americans.

I'd like to see a gov't that has his platform as it's cornerstone. I've said this many, many times, Helmet.

Now that wasn't so hard, Sheeple, was it?

I agree with much of President Obama's positions, but not every word he's ever uttered. And, like you said in your earlier weasel response, President Obama is a good man. I believe that President Obama is the real deal when it comes to policy that benefits Americans. And he's certainly better than President Trump who you seem to always favor.

I agree with much of the Democratic Senators' and Congressmens' positions, but not every word they've ever uttered. And, like you said in your earlier weasel response, they're mostly good people. I believe they're the real deal when it comes to policy that benefits Americans. And they are certainly better than the Republicans who you seem to always favor.

As for "honesty and integrity," that's the old joke about being just "a little bit pregnant."

Sorry to disappoint you, Sheeple, but every politician, including Bernie Sanders, has, at one time or another, not been 100% honest.

"I'd like to see a gov't that has his platform as it's cornerstone."

And yet you constantly give aid and comfort to the political party and its leaders who would be the last to lay that cornerstone, while constantly trashing the very politicians (Democrats) who would be the masons for such an effort.

That's why Bernie Sanders caucuses with Democrats in the Senate.

That's why Bernie Sanders ran for president as a Democrat.

The person who you believe is the "real deal" understands that.

Why don't you, Sheeple?

Can we get back to the 'important' topic of the thread.

No one near Trump is willing to point out any flaw in his behaviour.
I half expect that all WH staff will start walking around with TP on their shoes as a sign of solidarity and an inside joke to own the libs.
