Donald Trump must have been so disappointed. He wanted to spend the weekend in Mar-A-Lago, celebrating his one-year anniversary in power with his billionaire friends.
And of course, playing even more golf.
But then the government closed down and he was forced to stay in chilly Washington, and pose for pictures to try to make it look like he was working.
Or just doing SOMETHING.
When sadly he wasn't.
He was just sitting on his enormous behind, no doubt consuming one Diet Coke after the other, and watching five-year-old tapes of himself attacking Obama, and accusing him of doing NOTHING.
On Saturday, the president was left alternately defiant and angry, self-pitying and frustrated. He argued to aides that he did not deserve the blame he was taking, but without a credible deal on the table, there was little for him to do. Irritated to have missed his big event in Florida, Mr. Trump spent much of his day watching old TV clips of him berating President Barack Obama for a lack of leadership during the 2013 government shutdown, a White House aide said, seeming content to sit back and watch the show.
For Obama still haunts him, along with Nixon...
But then of course, Trump couldn't watch the live news, or even look out of the window yesterday, because this is what he would have seen...
Gazillions of women in the United States and all over the world, from Washington, to Iraq, to Paris, and Vancouver...
Marching for their rights, and against Trump...

And sending him a clear message.
Which strangely enough he didn't seem to get.
Or was trying to pretend that it didn't hurt. I don't know what's worse or more pathetic.
Especially since the reviews are in for the first year of his presidency, and they're BRUTAL.
Despite all the hot air pouring out of every orifice, he's not being compared to the greatest presidents, he's being compared to the WORST !!!
Some of these presidents failed because they made disastrous miscalculations. Others were victims of circumstances not of their own making but whose decisions made things worse. Still others were accidental presidents of limited skill and credibility who succeeded men who died in office.
And then there were a few presidents who abused their position or permitted rampant corruption. Yet the first years of these failed presidencies were not always so bad, and in nearly every case not as bad as Mr. Trump’s.
Mr. Trump’s first year has been an unremitting parade of disgraces that have demeaned him as well as the dignity of his office, and he has shown that this is exactly how he believes he should govern.
And let's just hope that he didn't see what SNL's Michael Che had to say about Trump and the porn star Stormy Daniels...

Because along with his sagging polls, that's the kind of stuff that could KILL him.
And the best news?
Women are now leading the Resistance, and they will show that dirty dotard no mercy...
And George Washington it seems was prophetic.
George Washington warned that the actions of a president “may have great and durable consequences from their having been established at the commencement of a new general government.” If history is any guide — especially in light of the examples closest to his, of Buchanan and Andrew Johnson — Mr. Trump’s first year portends a very unhappy ending.
Trump is a dead man walking.
And he doesn't even know it...
And now it's time for the women to march to the department store to buy more kitty litter and tv dinners for one.
A rough total of centres large and small in the US ( not complete but interesting ) is 2,500,000 marchers. White Donnie is depressing the women were wonderful.
Vancouver too, eh? I hope the marchers included Trump's eyesore no-tell motel on their itinerary, and surrounded it like one might the embassy of an occupying enemy country. Who knows what kind of Boris Badenoff characters have been spending the night at that deplorable rest stop or what kind of shady deals go down there. I hope at some point, when all this is said and done, the Canadian government seizes the property, and converts it to rent-controlled housing for refugees and/or the best-and-brightest immigrant students and workers who "get the job done" as the song from Hamilton goes. Wouldn't that be a coup against the illegitimate deposed regime at Moscow-on-the-Potomac.
Speaking of symbolic conquests, Trudeau just announced on Twitter that he's going to be stopping by the Reagan Library next month to promote trade and friendly relations between the U.S. and Canada. The GOP cultists and even some of your cons are freaking out, because they see him as the antichrist invading the sacred temple of their ascended savior! They're calling him a "regressive liberal" and posting Reagan videos as "prophecies" about "socialism," like the "warning against government healthcare" that Canada obviously didn't heed -- and seems to be doing just fine as a result. A lot better than the U.S., that's for sure.
Whether Trudeau intended it as another subtle poke in the eye to Republicans or not, he's obviously struck a nerve nonetheless. He can only extend so many olive branches. They want to continue isolating themselves and turning inward because the Holy Profit of the Golden Showers says so? Fine. Canada's got plenty of willing partners elsewhere. The U.S. will just continue churning out its #1 export: mythological manure about its "greatness" ahead of all other foreign lands in the world. If they like their empty Trump library, they can keep their empty Trump library. Nothing but an out-of-order restroom at an abandoned McDonald's in Queens, New York, with "You deserve a break today" written on the marquee in Cyrillic.
The future is represented by every single one of those marchers, and that forward-thinking young leader of yours who's on his way to L.A. to win one over the Gipper. The fact that he's more popular than Trump has got to be giving the dotard agita in the covfefe too.
I did buy cat litter and cat food yesterday, but TV dinners????
Yecch!!!! I cook most everything I eat - and so do most of my male friends.
Who buys those things at a department store anyway? In honour of our host, I'll stop off at Simon's and ask where the cat litter and tv dinner aisles are...
Poor Donnie couldn't go golfing, wah! Better still is they're not even talking deals so he stayed for nothing. I bet the big orange frustrate-o-meter must be red-lining just like his cholesterol levels. To bad so sad. He had his chance, did a one-eighty and now he has to sleep in the bed he's made.
He's been a bad president Simon and as such, in his twisted world of ironic punishment, he should be thoroughly spanked with a signed copy of Fire and Fury.
The image of Trump watching tapes of him criticizing Obama during the 2013 shutdown is right out of a horror movie. The only reason he could be doing that is to see if he can use what Obama said then to help him now, and that's too ironic or insane for words. What does he have to do before even the Republicans realize he's too dumb and too dangerous to be president?
From your first link: Mr. Schumer said shortly after the government shut down that “in my heart, I thought we might have a deal tonight,
I wonder how many foreign leaders are watching this and realizing that they cannot put any faith,at all, in US diplomacy?
It has been clear for years that the USA will betray allies or violate agreements but this level of untrustworthiness must be horrifying them.
Clearly the Americans and, especially Trump, do not realize that many, if not most, world leaders understand English and, actually, are able to turn on the TV or watch an Internet news channel.

Trump fueling global assault on democracy, report says
President Donald Trump often claims that he has achieved unprecedented levels of success during his first year in office but a damning assessment from one non-partisan group warns that the administration's attacks on the press and brash foreign policy approach have intensified the ongoing global assault on democracy.
Released Tuesday by the watchdog group Freedom House, the new report concluded that the Trump administration has facilitated the erosion of American democratic standards and contributed to the decline of global freedom.

Hi Anon @10:59...I'm not sure what you're trying to say, but as you know Donald Trump doesn't like pets, and I bet that after seeing all those women with their incredibly cool vat hats, every time he sees a cat he starts to scream.
P.S. I like those cat hats so much I'm thinking of asking my Mum how to knit just so I can make one for myself. Unless of course I can buy a blue one somewhere...😉
Hi lagatta...I believe that comment was from a Con who was trying to put down the women who took part in those marches. Sadly Cons are the ones who live on TV dinners in their incredibly filthy parents basements, and when in a frenzy of bigotry are known to gobble kitty litter. And please don't tell me they are now selling TV dinners at Simon's or I will have to fire those responsible...😡

On SNL it dawns on the left that its tantrum over Trump is falling flat
By Monica Showalter
And here’s two gems from “American Thinker” Karin McQuillan:
Hi rumleyfips... That's amazing, and those women are amazing. Polls show that a far greater percentage of women are anti-Trump than are men. Which is particularly interesting considering that in Canada those who hate Justin Trudeau the most are men 55 years or older. It's a trend that should trouble us all...
Hi Jackie...There was also a big women's march rally at Toronto City Hall and it was fabulous. My admiration for the all the women and their male allies who marched all over the world couldn't be greater. As I told Rumleyfips many older men are supporting Trump in the U.S. And Scheer in this country. Their misogyny runneth over, as does my contempt for them. What I liked the most about the marches were all those signs urging people to organize and vote. The bestiality of Trump has united women hopefully they will lead the progressives to victory in your country and mine. As for Justin Trudeau, he has been battered by the Con media, but hopefully his basic decency will keep most Canadians on his side...
Hi JD....yes, according to several reports I've read Trumpy was beside himself. In addition to being kept off the golf course, he had a massive party planned to celebrate his anniversary. A gargantuan feast would be served to his guests, the Koch brothers were apparently ready to pay for the fireworks show just like the one they paid for at the Mar-A-Lago New Year's Eve party. All that was missing was for Stormy Daniels to come sashaying out and start singing "Happy Birthday Mr President." And all that had to be cancelled. Hopefully by the time the second anniversary rolls around Trump and gang will be safely behind bars, and Trump will have to pay some heavily tattooed inmate to spank him with a copy of the criminal code...
P.S. I hope you noticed that I took your suggestion and will now call Trump, among other less than flattering names, President Spankme...😉
Hi anon @3:53...I had the same reaction. I know Trump spends about eight hours a day watching TV, but that was the limit. It's like everything he does is measured against what Obama did, and that unhealthy obsession alone should have set off alarm bells a long time ago. If Trump leads us all to disaster there will be a long day of reckoning...
The man has already caused significant harm to target minority groups and eventually the rest of us as the weed seeds he is tossing in the wind take root. Although its impossible to ignore the severity of the situation I find myself wondering what is this idiot going to do next. Its like a poorly written mystery that is so twisted you just can't put it down. The latest in addition to "spank me Stormy" are the unfounded rumors that he and Haley have a thing on the go. Guess she spoke with authority when she told the UN that the Dotard would remember, as in Godfather remember, any country that did not support their embassy relocation to Jerusalem. Just way too funny if one can get around the sadness.
Hi jrkrideau....I believe I recently saw a poll that showed that the world leaders have lost almost all respect for the United States. And who can blame them? Trump is like a bull in a china shop. His ignorance and his vulgarity are enough to offend any decent person. It's going to take a long time for a new President to win back the world's trust....
Hi David...thanks for the links to back up what I just told jrkrideau. You're absolutely amazing....😀
Hi David...thanks again, your contributions to this blog are really valuable and much appreciated....
Oh, I know very well what the Con was trying to insinuate, that feminists are "mal baisées" who can't get a man - assuming all of us want a man; obviously some of us want a woman but I'm sure he's homophobic as well.
TV dinners aren't only full of fat, salt, sugar and weird additives, they are actually more expensive than proper cooking. No, no TV dinners at Simons, and kudos to Peter Simons for actually taking part in a press conference with Dr Amir Khadir of Québec solidaire to insist that online companies pay their taxes.
A rainbow-coloured cat hat would be great.
Livia is jealous of the computer and wants me to go back to bed with her; she is purring up a storm. Bye!
I could not think of a more appropriate event to mark the one year anniversary of Trump's inauguration than a government shutdown since the impeachment process is getting little traction. It just shows the ineptitude of this administration.
HI Simon, I did indeed notice and I'm happy that you used it. Given it's Trump I foresee many new nicknames in the future so feel free to use any you'd like.
Cats are awesome and hilarious creatures.
I'm sure Anon 10:59 is a big hit with the ladies - probably has had a few punch him directly in the mouth on more than one occasion. He sounds like he dates Mrs Thumb and her four daughters on a regular basis, served up with a large dollop of white petroleum jelly.
You are most welcome! 8-)
It was funny, the government out of money and Trump didn't get to go to his big party. Sent to his room. OMG, and this nation is supposed to be a super power.
we would be better off to not be tied to the U.S.A. via NAFTA AND get on with our lives and economy. The U.S.A. will continue to be a nation in decline and may never recover. Other countries consider Trump a joke, they spend billions in Afghanistan with no results--O.K. their friends who sell arms are making a killing, but no results for the tax payers. Now if Trump wants to build a wall put one around Afghanistan and come home, its cheaper/
