‘Stop! Thief!’ Naw, It’s Just Trump Being Trump

In Interpretive Dance, Bird performs ‘Trump in Paris’

Bloomberg:

“After Donald Trump’s planned trip to a French cemetery for fallen Marines was canceled in November 2018, the U.S. leader had some extra time on his hands in a mansion filled with artwork. The next day, he went art shopping — or the presidential equivalent.

“Trump fancied several of the pieces in the U.S. ambassador’s historic residence in Paris, where he was staying, and on a whim had them removed and loaded onto Air Force One, according to people familiar with the matter. The works — a portrait, a bust, and a set of silver figurines — were brought back to the White House.”

If it’s not nailed down, he’s stealing it.

    This is just so ridiculous.

    I mean- after so many stories of just how awful he is, what the everlovingfuck is going on with people who think that he is the bestpresidentever and also chosenbygod?

    Is there nothing he can do that would be understood by those supporters as “too much, too far” -what will it take? Does he actually have to shoot someone on 5th avenue? And even then- would that be enough? Could he eat a baby on the final episode of this season’s “Whitehouse- the reality show” and still win re-election? I swear to dog- I just cannot with these people anymore….

    Fuck it- I’m climbing into the bottle for the rest of the day. See ya’ll tomorrow.

    Trump’s sense of entitlement and personal privilege is breathtaking. Who the fuck goes to a residence and appropriates the decorations? I’m surprised he didn’t smuggle them out in his luggage, but I suspect he doesn’t pack his own bags. And as usual, his hapless staff had to hastily square the larceny with the ambassadors. Jeezus.

    HAH! Never mind the nailing-down, with his official “tRump Pry Bar,” he’s going to peel loose every last artifact available, in order to “furnish” his Dacha on the Black, er, make that some other color(?) Sea. (Adding one more hint: brown won’t work, either.) He’ll have a friend and close neighbor, who I imagine will visit on occasion, perhaps to “borrow” a trivial work of Art or two.

    The Residence at Cape Idokopas (Russian: Резиденция на мысе Идокопас) also known as the “Palace on the Idokopas Cape”,[1] often called “Putin’s Palace”,[2] “Dacha Putin”,[3] “Putin’s country cottage”,[4] etc., is a large Italianate palace complex located on the Black Sea coast near the village of Praskoveevka in Gelendzhik, Krasnodar Krai, Russia. Whistleblowers have claimed that the dacha was built for the personal use of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    The only art that Lord Dampnut cares about are the portraits of Himself as a trim, young fellow. He grabbed that art figuring to sell it or trade it for asylum down the road.

    FAKE NEWS! (literally)

    [snip]…In an “Antiques Roadshow” moment, Wengraf described the figurines as “20th century fakes of wannabe 17th century sculptures,” and of little value.

    The French art-collection episode comes with a curious footnote. After White House art curators examined the pieces Trump brought home, the president was told that the Franklin bust was a replica. He joked that he liked the fake better than the original, two people familiar with the episode said.

    The Franklin portrait snagged from Paris was also a copy — of the one Joseph Siffred Duplessis painted in France in 1785, which was then held by the National Portrait Gallery a mile from the White House.

    The curators removed a different portrait of the founding father from the Oval Office and borrowed the original Duplessis from the gallery. That one now hangs in the Oval, not the replica Trump ferried out of France.

    S.O.P.

    When the Secret Service pats him down on January 20, 2021, as they prepare to escort him out of the White House, that jingling sound will be the silverware.

      Trump probably owns this original, too.

        Jeebus H Keerist, on a mother-humpin ever-jumpin skateboard, and all the beloved Saints and Angels combined, dancin on the head of a tiny pin!

        The last time I saw a similar, reasonable likeness was on the back of a milk carton, several years ago. Of course, the caption read, “Have you seen me lately?” I mean, as if – Jeebus could never, ever get lost, so why do they keep insisting we need to find him?
