Comrade Trump Orders Flags At Half Mast for Poppy Bush

(Hat tip: Scissorhead Kilwer via Twitter)

Poppy Bush is still dead, and out of his great respect and well-known admiration for the Bushes, Comrade Prznint has ordered all the trappings of a state funeral.

We noted earlier that also out his well-known admiration for the Bushes, the Russian Usurper cancelled what was sure to be a rolicking press conference that would perhaps touch upon the Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac investigation.

And the Republicans, also out of their great respect and admiration for the Bushes, have decided to postpone shutting down the gubmint while the nation mourns the loss of the former CIA Director who brought us the October Surprise, Willie Horton, a war for oil, and other assorted points of light (I’m told that there are one thousand):

There will almost certainly not be a shutdown this week on account of the death of former President George H.W. Bush. But, according to multiple people involved, consider this a brief respite from what looms ahead. The fight is still happening behind the scenes — and will spill back into public next week.

In other words, the gubmint will shutdown after Poppy is planted.

    Well, sure. This administration is all about Decorum, doncha know. Sarah Chuckleface Slanders has told us so.
    Meanwhile, our gubmint is STILL operating without a real, actual budget. It’s just a series of kicking the can down the road, enacting interim temporary budgets, keeping Federal spending at last year’s levels, while hoping the economy doesn’t cool down too much, which would require actual legislating, to fend off disastrous results.
    Either they’ve forgotten how gubmint works, and how to perform their jobs, since it’s been so long since anything meaningful has been passed, (remember the Tax Cuts?), or they just don’t give a shit. My sparse collection of Quatloos is being wagered on the latter.

    • I would hazard all three, Dennis. Any of the Teatard caucus never knew how government works nor do they care. Effing shit up is all they know or care to know. Governance to them is like explaining calculus to hamsters.

        The only difference being that there is NO HARM in explaining calculus to hamsters.

  2. Since Bush Senior inadvertently dove on the government shutdown grenade, other unlamentable GOP “luminaries” can follow suit and keep the government running. I’m looking at you, Blam-Blam
    and Newticles.

    Remember all those years ago when Trump couldn’t leave McCain’s memorial flags at half mast? That tribute was going to be a whole day and a half.

    Now, McCain was never president, but he served his country, unlike Beefpoot Bone Spurs. And while neither Old Bush or McCain did the government proud, they at least showed up. Trump hates anyone, dead or alive, who are getting accolades when he doesn’t.

    The really annoying part is that Trump will get the same treatment when he eats that fatal Big Mac while trying to bop an intern in 10 or 15 years…and he’s just discovered that.

    and did you catch the coffin-side salute? you know he was so tempted to use just one finger. at least, this once, he’d have been honest.
