Donald Trump is not having a good day. He tweeted earlier about some statutory right he has to send troops across the Mexican border to get rid of cartels, but said that he wouldn’t do that just yet, (we imagine the Mexicans are relieved) then he demanded that CNN retract it’s story about him making calls from an unsecured personal cell phone. But the zenith of the day was reached when he started talking about light bulbs and toilets. This is a peek into Donald Trump’s mental landscape, and it makes Salvadore Dali’s paintings look mundane by comparison. RawStory:

The light bulb — they got rid of the light bulb that people got used to. The new bulb is many times more expensive and — I hate to say it — it doesn’t make you look as good. Of course, being a vain person, that’s very important to me. It’s like — it gives you an orange look. I don’t want an orange look. Has anyone noticed that? So we’ll have to change those bulbs in at least a couple rooms where I am in the White House. … We have a situation where we’re looking very strongly at sinks and showers. And other elements of bathrooms — where you turn the faucet on, in areas where there’s tremendous amounts of water, where the water rushes out to sea because you could never handle it — and you don’t get any water. You turn on the faucet and you don’t get any water. They take a shower and water comes dripping out, just dripping out, very quietly, dripping out. People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once. They end up using more water. So EPA is looking at that very strongly, at my suggestion. You go into a new building, or a new house or a new home, and they have standards where you don’t get water. You can’t wash your hands practically, so little water comes out of the faucet. And the end result is you leave the faucet on and it takes you much longer to wash your hands. .. For the most part. you have many states where they have so much water, it comes down — it’s called rain. They don’t know what to do with it. … A lot of things we do are based on common sense. If I didn’t get elected you wouldn’t have a steel industry. … We weren’t going to have a steel industry.

A reporter explained that Trump was attempting to discourse on low-flush toilets. How that came out of a comment on light bulbs and then devolved into a diatribe on hand washing, rain, and the steel industry is probably more appropriately the purview of the psychiatric community rather then the press. My take on the hand washing, toilet flushing manic comments was that Trump is like Lady Macbeth. Remember, how she would ring her hands and cry, “Out out damn spot,” and declaim, “Who knew that the old man had so much blood in him?” That was an expression of her guilt and paranoia. Likewise, germaphobe Trump knows that he’s dirty and he can’t cope with his need to get clean or make all the shit go away, so he rants about how the faucets don’t work and you have to “flush the toilets, ten fifteen times.” That’s my two cents, in any event. I think the guy’s unraveling faster than a half knit sweater when the cat finds the loose end of the skein and gets it caught on her collar. And, not to be tedious about this, but — this is the guy who has the nuclear codes. May heaven help us.

And I thought Bush was a joke.

W still is…do NOT let this current situation blinker you into thinking otherwise. I hold him and his administration responsible for making a freak like Trump possible in the first place.

It sounds like he’s never learned how to use any plumbing fixture. Or at least, none that were manufactured after 1980. (He has trouble with phones, too.)
(Some of the earlier low-flow stuff did have problems, but they were replaced with better ones pretty quickly. I’ve never had that kind of trouble.)

We went through that here, then when I replaced the old ones with a newer model, you need to flush and stand back so you don’t get sucked down the drain …. actually, the smartest guy in the WH must store his giant brain/mind somewhere else, there’s absolutely no evidence in the WH it actually exists …. jumble-mumbles used to be a sign of impending serious mental disconnect, along with circulation problems, caused by any of several problems, DVT, hardened arteries, wow, I wonder how he could have any of those …/S The new LED systems are tunable to any… Read more »

My husband read this story to me earlier. We were blown away. Someone put him on a bus to nowhere.

He already bought that ticket himself and has made Nowhere–or, as I and Keith Richards call it, Bye Bye Land–his permanent residence.

The big construction crews will need to knock down every part of mar-o-golf into a giant heep as a seed for the artificial mountain he will eventually need to build to keep above water … access by boats only, like his buddy Epstein’s island … of course the minimal maintenance he does on his properties will leech all kinds of pollution out of his former home there and kill fish for miles around … /s

I hate to break it to him, but he looks orange in any light. Sorry. (not)

Blaming his orange complexion on led lights is just his latest bs excuse he has to repeat constantly to combat his humiliation from everyone mocking his orange face for years.

WTH is he babbling on about? Can you imagine being part of the captive audience in that room and having to listen to his nonsense? I don’t think it’s circulation problems as much as he’s so full of sh*t it takes 10-15 flushes to do the job. Frightening! What a moran.

All that is late stage Howard Hughes talk, only the real Howard Hughes accomplished a good many worthwhile things, including being the key inspiration for Marvel superhero and now cinematic icon Iron Man.

Carol, with an economy of words you have pasted the WH crew’s nightmare into full exposure … once the idiot leaves the WH, all the, “regulars”, will need an award for service under fire …. maybe a big picnic lunch on the WH lawn as soon as weather permits … signs posted for Trump to see on that little TV across the hall from his cell … “It’s OK to laugh and have fun now, HE’S FINALLY GONE!!” …

I can’t help but think people just tune him out. If you listen you are bound to start laughing or crying. That could result in you being sent to a posting in some unpleasant place or attacks from MAGAnuts.

And just think…this is him on a relatively good day right now. On the bad ones, he’s going to be insufferable.

The only lights I’ve ever seen that would cause someone to look “orange” are traditional neon lights and sodium lights (and I’m not really sure how many of those are installed INSIDE buildings; neons are generally used as advertising or like open/closed sign lights while sodiums are common in street lighting, especially along interstates).
Of course, traditional incandescent lights tend to give off a yellowish tint.
But whatever lighting the Donald’s under is going to make little difference in his orange skin tone.

What a shame it is, that ineptitude and incompetence aren’t grounds for impeachment.

Indeed. And we really need to put in place some safeguards to prevent dangerous persons from getting into elected office in the first place. I think all candidates for federal elected office should be subject to FBI background checks and a psychological screening.

Unfortunately all those FBI checks didn’t help with the cry-baby beer head.

FBI checks are only done on non-elected officials who work in the White House and top levels at federal agencies.

Sorry. I was being snarky. By cry-baby beer head, I was talking about Kavanaugh. Yes, I know candidates aren’t subject to background checks. I was commenting on how pointless they are with rich Republicans. There ilk are never going to turn on one of their own and dish the dirt. Unless the Republican/country club individual has a police record that hasn’t been expunged they won’t likely get any dirt on him or her.

LOL, I thought you were talking about the other cry-baby – pumpkin head man-baby in the Oval Office. Yea from what I understand, Kavanaugh was left off the original list of right wing judges that Trump got from the Federalist Society because they thought Kavanaugh would not make it through Senate confirmation because of his, um, *problematic* reputation and history. Apparently, SCOTUS Justice Anthony Kennedy met with Trump and told him that it was safe for him to retire now because he has a fantastic buddy that Trump should nominate to replace him – Kavanaugh. Apparently the Federalist Society and… Read more »

Maybe he’d look better under lights if he used a different color of make-up. That orange stuff won’t look natural under any lighting i can think of.
