Maureen Dowd, "Donald Goes to the Dogs": Dragging America Into the Gutter

And all this while, I thought Donald Trump couldn't go any lower than participating in the WrestleMania Battle of the Billionaires, where Trump pinned Vince McMahon and shaved McMahon's head, demonstrating to the world what it takes to be the next American commander in chief. Obviously, I was wrong.

"Grab them by the pussy"? I wonder how Donald would respond if someone was to threaten to grab him by the penis ... provided they could find it hiding under all that corpulence.

In her latest New York Times op-ed entitled "Donald Goes to the Dogs," Maureen Dowd concludes:

"[I]t’s not fair to compare Trump to a dog. Dogs are awesome."

I agree with Maureen, as do my two dogs, Arnold and Munchkin, who will tell you that Donald is not going to the dogs. Rather, they will inform you that it is America being dragged into the gutter by this narcissistic buffoon.



  1. [I thought America was being dragged to the gutter by Lena Dunham, but then Obama let his daughter Malia work on that soft-porn Dunham HBO series called "Girls".
    What America needs = "Lassie" ]

    "...When his despicable behavior was exposed to the point that he couldn't deny it any longer, Clinton spoke to the American people. In August 1998, he gave the following address about his lies, his disgusting sexual behavior, and his mistreatment of a woman who worked as a subordinate.

    "As you know, in a deposition in January, I was asked questions about my relationship with Monica Lewinsky. While my answers were legally accurate, I did not volunteer information.

    Indeed, I did have a relationship with Miss Lewinsky that was not appropriate. In fact, it was wrong. It constituted a critical lapse in judgment and personal failure on my part for which I am solely and completely responsible. . . . .I misled people, including even my wife. I deeply regret that.

    Now, this matter is between me, the two people I love most--my wife and our daughter--and our God. I must put it right, and I am prepared to do whatever it takes to do so.

    Nothing is more important to me personally. But it is private, and I intend to reclaim my family life for my family. It's nobody's business but ours. ..."

    Now, pay close to what he says next because it directly applies to what is happening with Trump, so much so that he should mimic the former president by using these very words in his own defense:

    "...Even presidents have private lives. It is time to stop the pursuit of personal destruction and the prying into private lives and get on with our national life.

    Our country has been distracted by this matter for too long, and I take my responsibility for my part in all of this. That is all I can do.

    Now is the time -- in fact, it is past time to move on.

    We have important work to do -- real opportunities to seize, real problems to solve, real security matters to face.

    And so tonight, I ask you to turn away from the spectacle of the past seven months, to repair the fabric of our national discourse, and to return our attention to all the challenges and all the promise of the next American century."

    So willing were the media and Democratic politicians to get past the sexual impropriety of the president that they did just what he said. For months and years following, Clinton defenders repeated with defiant fury, "This is a private matter and has nothing to do with the issues at hand. The American people don’t care about Clinton, Lewinsky, a soiled dress, and a cigar."

    The vile and lewd sexual exploits of the president and his mistreatment of a young woman who was in a powerless position didn't matter. Not one iota. ..."

  2. [no dogs were harmed? by this email leak from Guccifer 2.0 to Intercept, reported below... quite a thorough propaganda blueprint]

    "...As these internal documents demonstrate, a central component of the Clinton campaign strategy is ensuring that journalists they believe favorable to Clinton are tasked to report the stories which the campaign wants circulated.

    At times, Clinton’s campaign staff not only internally drafted the stories they wanted published but even specified what should be quoted “on background” and what should be described as “on the record.” ...

    Planting stories with “friendly journalists”...

    ...Hillary’s “reliable surrogates” in the media and in the Obama administration..."

    ...[includes Maureen Dowd]...

    Glitzy messaging parties for “friendly journalists” and “good progressive helpers”...

    Shaping coverage to exclude “unhelpful stories” about “the Foundation, emails, etc.” ..."

  3. "Trump's Comments: The Latest Left-Wing Hysteria"
    By Dennis Prager
    October 11, 2016

    "...We are regularly forced to endure a new left-wing manufactured, media-supercharged hysteria.

    The latest is the tsunami of horror in reaction to Donald Trump's gross and juvenile comments made in private 11 years ago.

    The tsunami of condemnation of his remarks is quintessential left-wing hysteria. That more than a few Republicans and conservatives have joined in is a testament to the power of mass media and hysteria to influence normally sensible people.

    On the same day the recording came out, so did leaked emails that revealed that Hillary Clinton told a Brazilian Bank in 2013 that she is for "open borders."

    Open borders mean the end of the United States as we know it.

    That, my fellow Americans, is worth getting hysterical about."
