Calling All Women: Trump Says Births In 9th Month Of Pregnancy Will No Longer...

Yesterday I wrote about the sitting Republican president’s curious rant on rainfall, faucets and recalcitrant toilets, who simply will not cooperate until you flush them “ten or fifteen times” and I characterized those musings as absurd even for Trump. Little did I know that the very next day would bring this jewel, however. Donald Trump has gone on record stating that “there are laws that allow birth in the ninth month of pregnancy.” Yes, there are. I believe those laws were put into effect by God, Mother Nature, or genetics, whichever phrase suits your worldview. Trump, however, has called for these laws, immutable, so far as we know, to be abrogated. Hoe kay. Statement from The President: "Right now in a number of states the laws allow a baby to be born from his or her mother's womb in the 9th month. It is wrong. It has to change." Watch. pic.twitter.com/v5dx94Httn — Noga Tarnopolsky (@NTarnopolsky) December 7, 2019 I will take a leap of faith here and assume that Trump doesn’t know the difference between childbirth and abortion. Or, maybe it’s more prudent to be cynical and judge this whack-a-mole comment as the logical extension of the GOP’s paternalistic dictatorship over women’s reproductive organs. With Trump’s call to ban childbirth in the ninth month of gestation, everything women do would be illegal — preventing pregnancy, terminating pregnancy, going through with pregnancy. If giving birth in the ninth month is going to be deemed illegal, man, are we going to have a prison crowding problem then. However you call this shot, though, this is weird. Trump is really coming unglued. How many of these incomprehensible, clear-as-mud, ramblings do we need to see, back to back, before the 25th Amendment is deemed warranted?

Trump Runs On About Light Bulbs, Toilets and Rain in Rant That Is Absurd...

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 […]
