Bwa hahahahaha! It's good to know how much of a loser Trump still is, deep inside, and clearly is on the outside.

1. of little importance; trivial.

"the petty divisions of party politics"

2. (of behavior) characterized by an undue concern for trivial matters, especially in a small-minded or spiteful way.

"Donald Trump is a petty human being."

People are saying that Trump caught Melania looking at Obama's portrait a little too closely. Don't tell Hank.

Petty... and vindictive. Crass, shallow, narcissistic... I could go on.

That's fine.

It just means a real president will be doing it.

And Drumpf's official portrait can be in his orange prison jumpsuit, it'll go well with his skin.

I would assume Obama is just as happy not having it unveiled and probably wants it destroyed after this POS was pawing at it. Easy enough to have a new portrait commissioned and handled with the respect they deserve.

Is it too soon to erase 44 from the history books too?

This reminds me of Trump being asked "what do you tell Americans who are scared?" That was a softball question that any president could've handled pretty easily with an expression of empathy and resilience. Trump instead flew into a rage at the reporter.

If Trump had invited the Obamas and unveiled the portrait it would've made him look magnanimous. The Obamas would've had to either come to the event and give Trump a show of bipartisan peace on the evening news or snub the event and make themselves look petty.

Instead Trump looks petty.

Later in this broadcast: President Biden unveiled the Trump presidential portrait today. It was placed in the only location available--in urinal #2 in the basement men's room, in the employee locker room. After the unveiling, a long line formed to 'dedicate' the 3x5 portrait. Former President Trump, now known as federal prisoner #R09C88, was not made available for comment by prison staff at the federal correctional institute in Yazoo City, MS...

Still trying to rewrite history? Why?

Are you still angry that a black man was a successful U.S. President?

Maybe we should erase you and your kind instead.

Why would President Obama, a man od class and dignity be seen with the orange diaper wearing pants crapper, especially after what Dotard has slandered him with on a daily basis. I'm sure the WH smells like feces. I heard a guy who worked on the Apprentice for six years on a podcast this past weekend. Due to years of stimulant addiction Drumpf has no control of his bowels. They had to shut down production daily after Dotard would loudly crap his oants so they could wash him down and change his diaper. What he did to Miss Teen America contestants was disgusting. A death from COVID would be too good for this POS.

Still angry there are Black men.

So sad. My stance in politics is that you always respect the office. Trump has proven time and time again he doesn't. He has proven he respects the country (moreso than any Lib has done in a long time) but he obviously doesn't care about the office, which is something I give Obama much credit for. He respected the office, he just didn't respect the country but that's just partisan hate. Respecting the office should not be a partisan issue at all.

"Are you still angry that a black man was a successful U.S. President?"

OK, so which comment above won the argument? It's so easy to know you've won against a Lib. It's amazing they haven't caught on yet and made it a little more difficult.

I really wanted to see Trump put handcuffs on Obama when he shows up.

That would be a scuffle for the ages and I have a feeling Obama would be the victor.

Man up Trump!!!!

Respect for Humtake means lying to the country about literally everything.

I prefer your idea. Biden giving honor to Obama in such a fashion would make an exceptional moment. I hope Trump sticks to his guns on this one!

Are we talking about that godawful painting that shows O with six fingers?

#25 | Posted by WhiteDevil at 2020-05-20 09:03 PM | Reply


No, it's more about the ceremony than the actual painting.

#26 | Posted by rstybeach11 at 2020-05-20 10:03 PM | Reply

I thot ceremonies were banned. If weddings and funerals are a no-go, sounds like a bad example we're setting to open up the WH to events that don't really mean anything at all.

#27 | Posted by WhiteDevil at 2020-05-20 10:14 PM | Reply


Sure, a sign of bipartisan respect espoused by both sides of the aisle doesn't mean anything at all.

In fact, Trump saying no to a newly found tradition that affords bipartisan respect doesn't mean anything at all. In fact, it means so little, I'm guessing Trump will reverse course here, only to make himself out as the hero; forcing B. Hussein to show up to the WH in Trump's shadow or be a bitter yellow pansy and disregard the invitation. If he doesn't, he's an idiot.

I thought this guy was a media genius. He's passing up a gold mine of opportunity here.

What a petty thing for Trump to do.

Guarantee he'll blow up Twitter if his successor does the same.

Provided he can get someone to smuggle a cell phone in on visiting day. Or if he hasn't already died from too many Big Macs.

With Trump trying to plant notions of unnamed criminality by Obama, it's an extraordinary spectacle to witness a President running for a second term and focusing not on his own record but pinning hopes on demeaning and falsifying the conduct of his predecessor.

Unveiling President Obama's portrait would only worsen Trump's ED.
