Ten Funny Tweets Derek Re-Tweeted Last Week

Hi, everybody!

It's been a crazy week, what with e-mails and meetings with foreign adversaries and Angry Orange listening to a marching band play a Daft Punk medley and whatnot, so I just want to tell you that this week's GIFs are all about LEGO™!

Benny is happy to be here.
Now let's get going!

*****

World leaders got together this past week to party hard and shun the current lunkhead squatting in the White House, but there was one guy who was all about having a little private time with him...


Angry Orange met with Rootin' Tootin' Putin for over two hours, with only translators and maybe one or two others in the room. What, if anything, did they talk about? Nobody knows, because neither of them is telling. And all those slurping noises heard through the door? Probably just the sound of Angry Orange enjoying two scoops of ice cream...

Later, during the actual summit itself, Angry Orange got up from his seat to...I dunno...maybe find out where Chris Christi is with his KFC...sweatshop enthusiast Ivanka sat down to take his place.


Naturally, this caused quite an uproar because, as almost everyone on Earth pointed out, she is not even remotely qualified to be an adviser to her father, so there is no way in hell she should be sitting at the table with world leaders.

He speaks for all of us.
But Ivanka wasn't the only one of Angry Orange's kids to take heat last week.

Donald Trump, Jr. was in the spotlight because the rumor mill produced information about a meeting last summer where he, his brother-in-law Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort met with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have some dirt on Hillary Clinton. Don, Jr., wanting to impress Daddy, immediately jumped at the chance to get that info, but the whole thing turned out to be a bust because, according to witnesses (at least, the ones who have been identified), the lawyer only wanted to complain about sanctions against adopting Russian children here in the U.S. The meeting was considered a bust, and nobody said anything about it to, say, somebody at the CIA or the FBI. Or mentioned it on the security forms after the election, which, it turns out, is illegal.


The New York Times managed to get their hands on Don, Jr.'s emails with the guy who set up the meeting, and they were set to publish them. Don, Jr. decided that it would probably look better if he produced the emails himself beforehand. (By about thirty minutes.) Unfortunately for him, that still doesn't clear him, Manafort or Kushner for lying on their clearance forms. I smell potential charges of collusion!

Republicans trying to distance themselves from Angry Orange.
Needless to say, Angry Orange's trip, and his idiot children doing stupid things has not exactly put him in the best light for other countries. Case in point, here's an Australian reporter saying things about him.


Credit where it's due...That was the most polite-sounding takedown I've ever heard. If it had been me, there would have been a lot more cursing.

But take heart, Dear Reader, because the angry voices are getting louder. And more official.


It will probably fail because the GOP refuses to give Angry Orange the boot when they still have so many terrible ideas to implement, but it's a start.

He dodged that bullet...for now...
As for myself, I started a new project (which is why I've been late posting these the past two weeks).


And I saw the most depressing tableau ever.


My life, while not always filled with excitement, still manages to never be boring.

But I don't want it to be filled with excitement!
And then there were tweets. The people of Twitter had a good week, as they usually do, and I went in, with no regard for my own safety, and grabbed a handful of those tweets to put in front of your face. So let's have a look, shall we? In no particular order...


And there you have it! Now get out there and have a great week. And to help it along, I offer not some funny video I found on YouTube. Instead, I offer this tweet from Paul F. Tompkins, who appears to have discovered the song of the year. Bask in its glory.


All the best,
Derek and Bosco
