I thought Elon was South African?

Elon Tusk?

I really do enjoy when Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- goes on these trips. He gets tired and says stupid things. Very entertaining.

"Very entertaining."

Or as Mackris would say, "Fascinating."

#6 You may be right.

Mackris: "Interesting ...."

Trump said of Musk. "You know, we have to protect Thomas Edison, and we have to protect all of these people that came up with, originally, the lightbulb, and the wheel and all of these things."
The wheel made its first appearance in Mesopotamia " an ancient region that corresponds mostly to present-day Iraq

So that's why we invaded Iraq! To protect the wheel!

Neolithic White Christian Americans invented the wheel.

Also, he doesn't seem to know that Elon Musk is from Apartheidistan

Dany died trying to break the wheel.

Funny thing is that the inventor of the wheel might have been a distant ancestor of Sulumeni

#12 | Posted by truthhurts at 2020-01-23 08:39 PM

WTF? I'm am frankly somewhat hyper patriotic but there's no way in hell I will ever clean the wheel is an American invention.

As for protecting the inventor he or she has been dead for thousands of years.

And yes I think that there is a high probability a woman or a very loving husband invented the wheel.

Trump, who is never wrong, now claims that the wheel that was invented 5500 years ago was actually just a prototype.

It was General Motors "See the USA in a Chevrolet" who improved on the original 5-sided pentagon design which was also the inspiration (recommended by Trump in his extraordinarily smart youth) for the Pentagon building in D.C.

Don't you dummies no nuthin'?

It's really sad that after all their years of claiming government would be so great if a businessman ran it, they elect a "business man" who's so terrible at being a "businessman" that the only example he can name of current "geniuses to protect" is the name he's fed by the interviewer.

I mean this is on par with Palin's "I read all of them" comment.

Trump previously instructed us that the wheel is older than the wall. So, did Americans invent the wall, too? Or, was the wall invented by someone from one of the three Mexicos?

Well, I mean, he does have a point. If you look at the way Liberals are trying to rewrite history, it's only a matter of time they make some outlandish claim like a woman invented the wheel so without women we wouldn't have them or it was only because of transgender bathrooms did we create cars. Hey, either of those could be true but there is no way to prove it, so it won't stop Liberals from making it up to further their agenda. So I get where he is coming from but he does this too often, say things that you have to dig to find his meaning instead of either not saying them or making them a little more palatable to the masses.

LOL "dig to find his meaning" = "my interpretation of what he said that makes it more favorable and supposedly less crazy".

You fools elected a brain dead moron and now you expect us to go along with it.

#19 | Posted by jpw at 2020-01-24 12:41 PM

I'm pretty sure the inventor of the wheel is pretty good with his club. He doesn't need our protection.

The caveladies like mattress do though. Early man reproduced by abduction and rape. They still write porn about it....

One would think being stupid is painless since you're (not you)stupid

I'm guessing Trump believes the brave and great war hero Colonel Sanders invented fried Chicken to lure runaway slaves indoors.

I'm also guessing snorting Adderall and Sudafed while hate-watching Maddow is his favorite desert.

A metaphor.
