A disagreeable lunch

Apparently the thing on the teleprompter for Donnie’s talk this evening will have words about being nice and bipartisan and yadda yadda, but Donnie had some people over for lunch today and was his usual malevolent mouthy self.

Mr. Trump dismissed former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. as “dumb,” called Senator Chuck Schumer of New York a “nasty son of a bitch” and mocked Gov. Ralph Northam of Virginia for “choking like a dog” at a news conference where he tried to explain a racist yearbook photo, according to multiple people in the room.

He doesn’t half project, does he. He’s a hell of a lot more dumb than Biden, and vastly more of a nasty sonofabitch than Schumer and in fact 99.99% of people on the planet. What “choking like a dog” is supposed to mean, apart from its kinship with “I moved on her like a bitch,” I don’t know, but it’s obviously not a compliment.

The White House declined to comment on the president’s remarks.

Energized and blunt, Mr. Trump held little back during the lunch at the White House to preview the State of the Union address. As he has in past years, he offered an unvarnished, unscripted view of the political world that went well beyond the heavily vetted speech he is to deliver to a joint session of Congress and a national television audience.

In other words he put on a vulgar, crude, trashy, mean, disgusting display of egomania and greed.

He said he hoped he would get to run against Mr. Biden. “I hope it’s Biden,” Mr. Trump said. “Biden was never very smart. He was a terrible student. His gaffes are unbelievable. When I say something that you might think is a gaffe, it’s on purpose; it’s not a gaffe. When Biden says something dumb, it’s because he’s dumb.”


Not every target was a Democrat. He recounted again the story of what he considered Senator John McCain’s betrayal in voting against advancing a measure to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care program. Although Mr. McCain has since died, Mr. Trump remains upset.

“By the way,” Mr. Trump said, “he wrote a book and the book bombed.”

What a repulsive imitation of a human being he is.

He’ll be doing his talk in a few minutes. I wouldn’t listen to it if you paid me.
