Creative insult wars...

Today's post comes courtesy one of several of my friends named Tim, who is an unabashed liberal and a veteran.  Incidentally, I have a couple of other veteran friends named Tim who are conservatives.  This post is inspired by liberal Tim, who is hilarious and a very talented animator with a passion for old G.I. Joe dolls.

See what I mean?

Tim is an ex Mormon who plays a mean guitar, too...

Tim recently opined about conservatives who are angry that Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump a "feckless cunt".

Incredibly offensive?  Really?  What is offensive is Trump's administration and how he's totally making America fail again.  To be clear, I don't think I would have called Ivanka a cunt.  I would have tried to find a more gender neutral expression.  But I totally see why some people are okay with the moniker.

Below is Tim's post.

Seems reasonable enough to me...

Well, Tim has a bunch of friends and they all swing in different political directions.  A very entertaining thread commenced.  I have omitted some parts for the sake of brevity.  Two participants, names of Erin and Steve, went at it...  I think Erin was the obvious victor.

Erin begins with some very creative insults, which made me take note of her impressive vocabulary.  But then Steve jumps in when talk turned of Ivanka being a cunt...

He tries valiantly to fight with Erin using words, but fails... so he turns to pictures.

Erin keeps using her words, though, and is the obvious winner.

I was so impressed by Erin that I had to congratulate her.  She has more patience than I do.  I generally don't get into verbal fights with people like Steve.  I simply tell them to "fuck off", a la Papa Smurf.  That makes them think they've won the argument, when actually I've just decided it's not worth the time or energy to fight with them.  However, I must admit that when people do get into these kinds of social media altercations, it's pretty hilarious.

Seriously, though, I think a very good point was made in this post.  People who continue to defend Donald Trump and are outraged that someone called Ivanka Trump a "feckless cunt" are stunningly hypocritical.  This is the man who openly bragged about grabbing women by the pussy.

This is our president, fellow Americans out there in Internet land.  If you voted for him and think Samantha Bee should be punished for using the c-word, you need to check your priorities.

You know... I used to think Ted Cruz was crazy.  But now I'm sorry he didn't run against Hillary instead of this malignant crotchtag we have running the country now...

And I don't even know how to explain people like the owner of this California vehicle.

The wingnuts are coming out right and left...  Bonus points if you click the link.

Anyway, if we can't have a real president in the White House, we do at least have asskicking, verbally skilled women on Facebook who are willing to be entertaining.  Cheers to Erin and Tim for being both smart and hilarious.  It helps alleviate the depression of watching America falling into the sinkhole that is Donald Trump's presidency.
