Legume Season, politically speaking

I had to cool my heels for a little bit at the courthouse today, waiting for a case to be called, so I went to Goat's Butt* to see what some people were doing.

Somebody I know shared a post from somebody else. The person whose post was shared was proclaiming that since Wisconsin is calling out the National Guard because what has happened in Milwaukee, that President Obama would use that as an excuse to seize a third term.

I had the urge to comment and ask if the original poster might have been dropped on his head a few times when he was a young child. Maybe it's not PC, but if you really believe that drivel (as the OP apparently did), then you probably should be seeking professional help, before the nice men in white come for your with their butterfly nets.

And speaking of somebody who apparently was dropped on her head a few too many times:
Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson on Monday accused “left-wing reporters” of “literally” beating Trump supporters.

“The voters want someone that’s gonna fight back because they are tired of seeing left-wing reporters literally beat Trump supporters into submission into supporting policies they don’t agree with,” Pierson told Fox Business Network.
Before she opens her shoe-receptacle again, she ought to watch Word Crimes about fifty times with the volume turned up to 120%.

And then there is Rudy Giuliani, who is apparently suffering from some sort of brain-sickness:
Speaking in Youngstown, Ohio ahead of Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, who was the mayor of New York City on 9/11, declared that Islamic extremists hadn't carried out any terror attacks on American soil before Barack Obama's presidency.

"Under those 8 years, before Obama came along, we didn't have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the US," Giuliani told the crowd. "They all started when Clinton and Obama came into office."

But before I could write this post, I had to fix my computer, as Chip managed to change the screen orientation.

It's a real PITA trying to look up how to do that when the screen is 90deg out of whack. I gave up and asked Siri, who actually got me to the right place to find out.
* Bad French joke.

"Literally" barely moves the needle on the Katrina Dimwit scale. There are actual, functioning people who say that.

Thank you for the link to "Word Crimes", that was freakin' hilarious.
Also, as fed up with Trump supporters as everyone I know is right now, maybe she shouldn't be giving anyone any ideas?
