I think it’s very frustrating to have an opinion about something, and have people bash your opinion because they disagree with it. Other people don’t know your reasons and why Trump suits you … And then if you express your opinions, they just attack you.
I won’t do that! If you support Donald Trump, but want to have a conversation about why in case you have any doubts … give me a chance to be a sounding board.
I know you probably don’t want to talk politics with a blogger at DumbFunnery.com but … do it anyway?

As an American, talking politics is bad social form, it’s too personal and it’s just awkward when you realize you disagree strongly with someone. But sometimes you need someone to talk to, to express why you like or dislike a candidate to sort out your feelings. If you’re in that boat about any candidate, shoot me a line! I’d be happy to talk.
Lastly, sorry about that misleading title. I promise not to be misleading again.
Donald Trump, 41 days into his presidency, announced in a speech that he has heard the phrase “standing on the shoulders of giants” and he “always found that to be baloney. Other people might have to stand on others shoulders, but some people, like me, are great enough that they can just leapfrog over those giants.”
Following are a list of quotes from Trump. We can only assume that these are him “leapfrogging” over famous quotes from some of our nations past presidents.
“And so I said Mr. Xi Jinping [Chinese president], tear down that wall! I’ll build you a bigger, nicer, better, more likely to keep out the riff raff wall.”
“We choose to go to the moon! We choose to go to the moon not because it is easy, but because it is … I mean think about it, it’s prime real estate.”
“The only thing we have to fear … is a two term limit. You really want some loser in here after you’ve gotten used to me? That’d be like going from caviar to some sort of loser-paste.”
“There is nothing wrong in America that can’t be fixed with what is right in America. And what is right in America is currently in a 12,000 dollar suit staring right at the camera telling you we should be embarrassed that the White House is so tiny. Here’s what I propose …” (And thus followed Trump’s famous speech that many thought was an homage to The Jerk, but no, he’s just that nuts.)
That’s right, ladies and gentlemen: Valentine’s Day and President’s Day have joined forces and we can now expect Valentine’s Day cards that also celebrate Presidents.
Personally, I think it’s a great idea.
Lesser known or oft-forgotten presidents can finally get their time in the lime-light.
Look for new classic cards like:
“My heart Van Burens for you”
And, uh …
“Wanna go to Cleveland?”
Well. This is tougher than I thought it’d be. How about …
“Rutherford B. Hayes girl … what’s up?”
Ok, nevermind everybody. Let’s keep romance and the presidents separated.
