A few random thoughts on the week.
The Pope takes on The Donald:
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”
Ignoring the axiom “people who live in glass houses ought not throw stones” and ignoring the fact that the Vatican Wall was built specifically to keep the marauding Muslims away from the then seat of civilization, and that the Vatican has the most restrictive immigration and citizenship policies of any nation in the world,” it’s still never a good idea to attack The Donald because The Donald always hits back.
“If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS’s ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been President because this would not have happened. ISIS would have been eradicated unlike what is happening now with our all talk, no action politicians.”
Which is fairly sedate compared to some of the previous draft responses submitted by his followers:
“Why’d it take him three days to rise? I would have risen in three hours. Jesus, very low energy.” - Carlos on Twitter
“This is truly one of the worst Popes. Drives a Fiat, which is a very weak car. Low energy –can barely hit 80 mph. I drive a Cadillac. Nice!” - Tom on Twitter
“You call that a wall? I’ll build you a wall!” (pic h/t CaptainAmerica)
In other Barry news: White House spokesmouth confirms he won’t be attending Justice Scalia’s funeral in order to reduce the “security footprint” at the even. Same
excuse reason he has given for not going to church; we sure don’t want to inconvenience the little people. Instead, he’ll send Joey B whose “security footprint is at least a little bit lighter.”
I wonder if he was concerned about his “security footprint” when he met with Tom Hanks and Morgan Freeman at exclusive D.C. restaurant BLT (where you can snag a Kobe ribeye for $95)?
Or when he and Lady M went out for their pre-Valentine dinner? Or when MO hit Soul Cycle earlier this week?
Tom and Morgan were huddling with Barry and his Obama Foundation people to discuss funding for their family dynasty after leaving office.
Morgan was also in town to attend the Big White’s Black History Month reception, which followed the BLM reception.
Barack Obama praised young Black Lives Matter activists in the White House on Thursday, taking special notice of prominent Ferguson protesters and describing the meeting as a moment to bridge differences in a younger, changing civil rights movement.
“They are much better organizers than I was when I was their age, and I am confident that they are going to take America to new heights.”
Three things: 1. Y’all remember the policeman in Ferguson was cleared in the shooting of the gentle giant, right? 2. I always suspected Barry wasn’t even a good community organizer, and 3. New heights? Really?
That’s no longer a very high bar.
