Can we talk? Look, the toilet-paper-stuck-to-a shoe shtick is funny. C’mon, you know it is: anyone shuffling heedlessly along while a kinda gross white banner trails beneath them? Amusing — I’m not sure why, but it is. Maybe because it puckishly confirms we’re all human, we’re all prone to embarrassing — pardon the pun — missteps, we all cover our tootsies one piece of footwear at a time; and sometimes tp gets stuck to it.
If it were Obama dragging the mischievous item? The quips from my beloved political and cultural Right would be gushing like a firehose; hard and fast. And hilarious.
It’s funny even when it happens to a friend, a hero, a mother.
Or to President Donald Trump — and it’s okay to admit that.
Here is the Huffington Post, Thursday:
“TP or not TP? That is the question after President Donald Trump boarded Air Force One with something stuck to his shoe.”
“And to many, it looked like a trail of toilet paper following him from his limo up the stairs and to the door of the aircraft as he left Minneapolis on Thursday…”
“It’s not clear if it was toilet paper, a napkin or just a sticky and persistent piece of paper, but whatever it was detached itself from his foot at the top of the staircase…”
Across the pond, the Metro UK joined in, (in a poorly constructed sentence, by the way) musing thusly:
“[D]espite trailing behind him all the way, 72-year-old seemed completely unaware of the incident, obliviously stopping to turn and wave once he reached the top.”
The actual problem? The precincts of Progressivism being what they are, the mainstream media industrial complex operating the way it does, this good-natured gaffe will be preposterously and mercilessly transmogrified. It will be so beaten into the ground, so gleefully over-focused upon and inflated into a major, international howler-of-an-incident — some who might otherwise snicker at the episode and then move blithely forward will, instead, find themselves tempted to sneer at those obsessing spitefully over it; and double-down on whatever favorability they felt toward the President before “l’affaire de Charmin”.
Soooo … how long will Jimmy Kimmel smirkingly slobber over this anecdote?
Will Colbert devote one joke to the toilet paper topic? Or five of them?
This weekend, will SNL whip up an entire skit around it?
Then, watch — the monolithic Left will pile on, audaciously pounding lookers-on over the head: Trump might have had a bit of tissue affixed to his footwear, therefore … he’s done nothing right over the past twenty-one months, he’s the stupidest person ever to inhabit the White House, he has to be impeached! Toilet paper on the heel? That’s gotta be a “high crime and misdemeanor” somehow!
We are all that toilet paper. https://t.co/CvJ50OOMZY

If you haven't laughed yet today, here's a video of President Trump walking up the stairs to Air Force One with toilet paper stuck to his shoe. While this isn't grounds for the #25thAmendment, it does fit the pattern of Trump just being a fucking idiot.pic.twitter.com/eYu8X7Uneg

I’ve long said liberals don’t understand, their unhinged obsession with ridiculing Trump over EVERYTHING he does, (just watch a handful of episodes of The View if you can stomach it), mixed together with their obtuse refusal to tip their hat to him EVER, EVER, EVER for anything – it all plays a decisive role in shepherding straight onto 45’s side multitudes who, minus it, might have remained undecided or only mildly supportive towards him.
The determination of the frantically Lib media and daffy Hollywood to make great hay over giggly, but relatively dispensable, situations like this tp thing is the comedic equivalent of the Left’s perfidy on much more consequential matters; like the Kavanaugh nomination, to cite the rawest example. Over and over and over again, every day, 24/7, they hammer away mockingly and mean-spiritedly at America’s Chief Executive. They tear him down, often dishonestly and certainly unrepentantly.
Meanwhile, normal folks are disgusted by their nastiness and dissimulation — to a degree that, even those who entertain certain cavils with our famously flamboyant, one-of-a kind Chief executive, toss aside their reservations and toss in with him just out of revulsion at the malignant mendacity of modern-day Progressivism.
Remember when it was a big, gasp-inducing story that Donald Trump had a second serving of ice cream at some social function? That one turned out to be as empty as the President’s bowl when he’d finished the evening’s dessert. How about the hushed whispers a while ago that Melania was imprisoned in her loveless marriage? That greasy rumor was based on what, exactly? Ummmm … not much. On a much weightier note, recall the charge that the “racist” Trump had slandered all Latinos as “animals” – when, in fact, he had plainly only called members of the homicidal, raping and torturing MS-13 gang by that derisive moniker. It was transparently and immediately clear to anyone who bothered to actually listen to what he spoke.
Many an everyday American, even some not naturally inclined to enthusiasm for DT, see this nonsense accumulating on the Leftward side – and they react. And not in a way that helps Leftist causes.
If Team Trump are watching all this unfold – and I suspect they are – they might be torn: Should they hope his political adversaries knock it off and take a stab at a dash of fairness and a sense of proportion toward the administration? Or continue quietly pleased their foes’ maniacal and underhanded eruptions against all-things-Donald-Trump are inadvertently goosing the momentum Trump’s way – as they’ve been doing for some time now.
Trending Now on Right Wing News
New York Times Editor: We’re Switching From Russia Collusion To ‘Trump Is Racist’
The New York Times and others have repeatedly tried to take down President Trump with libelous statements on the Russian collusion front and have failed spectacularly every single time. Now, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet has accidentally admitted that for two years his far-left newspaper was “built” around spreading a hoax. Oops. But it’s never too late to shift propaganda in this political war.
He was secretly recorded saying just that and it got out. Baquet also admitted the Times’ staff is loaded with left-wingers “who cheer us when we take on Donald Trump, but they jeer at us when we take on Joe Biden.” Do tell. I’m shocked I tell you. Simply shocked.
What is actually shocking is this recording comes by way of the leftist rag, Slate. They got their mitts on the recording of a company-wide meeting Baquet held with his staffers and it is an illuminating look at how leftist media utilizes and manipulates propaganda for political effect. Why Slate would let that out is puzzling, to say the least.
Baquet has now admitted that for two long years his leftist newspaper was “built” around the Russia Collusion Hoax: “It got trickier after [inaudible] … went from being a story about whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia and obstruction of justice to being a more head-on story about the president’s character. We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well.”
Truly well? Do you mean by lying and falsifying facts? They did that very well. There was not a shred of evidence that Trump colluded with Russia yet the NYT reported on it as fact for two years and in actuality, made stuff up to fit that narrative.
So the NY Times (D-NY) is back to hosting political strategy sessions on how to destroy @realDonaldTrump. Collusion failed. Obstruction came up short. Now they’ve returned to the favorite cry of every liberal who’s losing an argument: RACISM! A sad commentary on “news” in America https://t.co/en4Y8nQCOa

But the New York Times has seen the light, so to speak. The Russia collusion hoax hasn’t worked so now they are switching tactics… Trump is now a racist and everything will revolve around that lie: “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that. As Audra Burch said when I talked to her this weekend, this one is a story about what it means to be an American in 2019. It is a story that requires deep investigation into people who peddle hatred[.]”
The truth is that if Trump were actually a racist it would have come out decades ago. This is a last-ditch effort to besmirch a sitting president so a communist can take his place in the next election. It’s subversion and in my book… a form of treason.
You can still taste the salty leftist tears from being disappointed that Mueller did not take down Trump: “The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened. Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, “Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.” And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we’re talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We’re a little tiny bit flat-footed. I mean, that’s what happens when a story looks a certain way for two years. Right?”
So, while the NYT, WaPo, and other lefty rags spewed lies and propaganda, outlets such as Breitbart, The Daily Wire, and The Daily Caller among others did real reporting and told the truth. For their efforts, a number of them have been banned on social media.
“Baquet pretty much spends the rest of the 90 minutes meeting fielding questions from individuals who are supposed to be professionals but who only want to know how they can call Trump and his supporters racists even more often.
“You see, according to the Times’ staff, everything is racist because everything really is racist.
“You probably think that whole “everything is racist” thing is me being sarcastic. Here’s a direct quote from a staffer [emphasis added]:
“Hello, I have another question about racism. I’m wondering to what extent you think that the fact of racism and white supremacy being sort of the foundation of this country should play into our reporting. Just because it feels to me like it should be a starting point, you know? Like these conversations about what is racist, what isn’t racist. I just feel like racism is in everything. It should be considered in our science reporting, in our culture reporting, in our national reporting. And so, to me, it’s less about the individual instances of racism, and sort of how we’re thinking about racism and white supremacy as the foundation of all of the systems in the country.
“Good grief. What a dispiriting and not-at-all surprising look at the ignorant whack jobs in charge of our media — and in the case of the New York Times, not just the media, but what is considered the elite of the media elite. What are they obsessed with? What do these conspiracy-loons see everywhere in 2019 America…?
“Here we sit in the most tolerant, diverse country in the world just a few years after having twice elected a black president with the middle name “Hussein,” and the people in charge of the media are breaking down into pools of self-pity because they want to scream racist at us even more than they already have.
“And again, let’s not forget that the only way they can try to pretend America is racist is by way of massive hoaxes: the Very Fine People Hoax, the Covington Hoax, the George Zimmerman Is White Hoax, the Hands Up Don’t Shoot Hoax, the Jussie Smollett Hoax, and the countless hoax hate crimes they spread over and over and over again without scrutiny.”
Good grief is an understatement. The NYT does not cover real news anymore like the rising tide of anti-Semitism in this country. They are too busy protecting terrorists and radicals, while smearing the president and conservatives, to do their actual jobs.
The New York Times openly admits that anti-Jewish hate crimes don’t interest the Times because white supremacists are not behind them: “If anti-Semitism bypasses consideration as a serious problem in New York, it is to some extent because it refuses to conform to an easy narrative with a single ideological enemy. During the past 22 months, not one person caught or identified as the aggressor in an anti-Semitic hate crime has been associated with a far right-wing group, Mark Molinari, commanding officer of the police department’s Hate Crimes Task Force, told me.”
But young white males are domestic terrorists according to these people. Geez. Not communist Antifa or Black Lives Matter or the Nation of Islam or the Black Panthers… white boys are the ticket, y’all.
Since the media is out of Russian ammo and they detest Trump, they have to have another way of smearing him and throwing the race card is their final desperate move in this political dance. Nothing else has stuck to Teflon-Don. Look for them to cry ‘racism’ non-stop for the next two years in their latest contrived hoax against the president. But you won’t hear them cover actual racism because it does not fit their political narrative. It has to be Trump, Trump, Trump! or it’s not news.
The NYT is a peddler of hate. No wonder they had to stop publishing political cartoons because the editorial staff can’t recognize blatant anti-Semitism. These aren’t journalists anymore… they are Brown Shirts. They feel they’ll get away with calling Trump a racist. After all, they got away with the Russian crap for two years.
Wow! The Deputy Editor of the Failing New York Times was just demoted. Should have been Fired! Totally biased and inaccurate reporting. The paper is a Fraud, Zero Credibility. Fake News takes another hit, but this time a big one!
