Gilligan’s Administration

The tiny-handed ship was lost.

Trump sends his mighty armada to North Korea! oops!

Aircraft Carrier Wasn’t Sailing to Deter North Korea, as U.S. Suggested

“Just over a week ago, the White House declared that ordering an American aircraft carrier into the Sea of Japan would send a powerful deterrent signal to North Korea and give President Trump more options in responding to the North’s provocative behavior. ‘We’re sending an armada,’ Mr. Trump said to Fox News last Tuesday afternoon. The problem was that the carrier, the Carl Vinson, and the three other warships in its strike force were that very moment sailing in the opposite direction, to take part in joint exercises with the Australian Navy in the Indian Ocean, 3,500 miles southwest of the Korean Peninsula.

“White House officials said Tuesday that they had been relying on guidance from the Defense Department. Officials there described a glitch-ridden sequence of events, from an ill-timed announcement of the deployment by the military’s Pacific Command to a partially erroneous explanation by the defense secretary, Jim Mattis – all of which perpetuated the false narrative that a flotilla was racing toward the waters off North Korea.”

Oh, good. WATB Hair Führer blamed the military. Also/too: can someone, anyone, everyone please stop saying False Narrative: the word you seek is LIE.

We give the last word to Lady Bracknell: “To lose one parent, Mr Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness.”

    Do you reckon the rubes know that after President Gilligan starts WWIII it’s a given that the draft will be reinstated? Hope they enjoy watching their babies go off to war over some ignorant tweet.

      I guarantee that I will be drafted before Fratsputin. The plutocrats will continue to escape their responsibilities.

    Did this just imply or explain that Trump and his band of idiots cannot tell the difference between Australia and Asia? They both start with an A, so they must be really close on the map, right?


  3. Just sit right back
    And you’ll hear a tale
    A tale in many lands
    That started from an gold leaf tower,
    From one with tiny hands
    The prez was a mighty lyin’ man,
    The veep afraid of girls.
    Five russians broke the code and
    began a four year coup,
    A four year coup

    The weather started getting rough,
    The numbers started dipping low
    If not for the knowledge of the Chinese Prez
    No Korea would be lost.
    No Korea would be lost.
