Bdelygmia (del-ig’-mi-a): Expressing hatred and abhorrence of a person, word, or deed.

Everything about you is either disgusting or laughable. Your hair looks like frozen yellow tinsel (probably stolen from the Dollar Store) tacked to your head with duct tape or staples.

You have told so many lies that most people have stopped taking you seriously or listening to you at all. Maybe that’s why you like Big Whoppers so much: they’re named after your favorite way of speaking. 

It is impossible to imagine where this raft of flotsam called the ‘administration’ is headed. Maybe it’ll go missing in the Bermuda Triangle or run aground in the Bering Strait–somewhere near Провиде́ния (Provideniya).

Anyway, I just wish you’d resign.

You are a leaky filthy bulbous bag of snail slime (sorry snails). You leave a trail of glistening lies behind you wherever you go.

Unfortunately, there are people who follow your glistening trails.  They seem to prefer shiny slime trails over trails paved with dull truth. When faced with the assertion that there’s a difference between a disgusting excretion going nowhere and a road that actually leads to a humane destination, they yell “Boooo!” and follow the slime.

“Negotiate” has lost its lustre as politicians shamelessly defame it in their obscene media machinations, as if refusing their cynical call to “negotiate” somehow signifies a Presidential character flaw.

Do we negoitiate with terrorists? No.

Do we negotiate with hostage takers? No.

Do we negotiate with highjackers? No.

We say that it’s a sign of courage to do one’s duty and refuse to negotiate when there’s a metaphorical gun to one’s head.

We say give back “negotiation’s” promising and hopeful meaning so it may further our shared democratic project. Let’s negotiate so that we may fill the political fissure with a common ground wherupon we may charitably pursue the common good.

Put down the gun.

Pick up the phone.

How I hate a cheater–the dissembler, the seducer, the subject of unwarranted praise: the perfect counterfeit of a perfect person!
