AND for your fellow actors. And the crew. And all the worker-bees who write, produce, promote,

prompt, direct, do the makeup, mind the costumes, handle the lighting, the cameras, gaffer and other crew duties. It takes a LOT of professionals to put a show on the air, and members of several unions, and lots of other unsung heroes. They're all out of work because of your own stupidity and jerkitude. Hope they can fold in on other productions so they don't fall too far behind. Just because YOU felt like mouthing off in real "style": crude, vulgar, insulting, insensitive, horridly racist - and then excusing it as merely "a bad joke." "

I was halfway waiting for an episode later in the series in which Roseanne's character

starts to see that her precious donald is actually NOT delivering on his promises, and times remain tough for her family, and she and Dan are probably facing losing their house ANYWAY.

Guess in that regard, at least Roseanne's TV family will be spared the harsh realities of the trump effect - unlike a whole lot of his real-life fans. I suspect some of them are gonna start waking up when they begin to notice that gas is more expensive, their health care costs are racing skyward with no let-up, and that fabulous raise that was anticipated never actually came.

YES! There has indeed been a witch hunt. Against Hillary Clinton.

That one's been underway since 1992! And in all that time, the hunters haven't come up with squat.

I'd like any one of these self-proclaimed vigilantes to hold up for ELEVEN HOURS like Hillary did at the hands of would-be inquisitor Trey Gowdy and and his goons.

Welcome to DU, Tall Poppy!

This is so good to know! I saw the article referenced in the OP, and was frankly amazed. I didn't realize that! Helps to know. Knowledge is life-saving.

Well, that's OUR job, kentuck.

We can't let up on that. It's WE who should generate that drumbeat, and keep it going so it catches on.

Welcome to DU, cungar2000!

They probably have a stash of antacids with his name on them in the cabinet in the executive suites' coffee lounge.

Welcome to DU, j316usa.

Maybe some outfit with a twisted worldview like that of Pox Noise will offer her a haven at some point. I can't think of anywhere else where her brand would be welcome at this point. Her career is in the deep freeze, at least for awhile. If she had left it at the initial apology tweet and not followed it up with lame comments and trying to blame Ambien, it might have helped a little. But I saw quite a difference between the apology tweet and her later comments. The first almost seemed like someone else had written it for her, compared to subsequent samples.

Somebody on the air pointed out yesterday that Mel Gibson came back. And people can have short memories.

But if it talks like a duck, and tweets like a duck, issues targeted put-downs like a duck, and otherwise behaves like a duck - it's probably a duck.

Hey, I like that!

Good. There's a lot of that going around now. And it's well-deserved!

LIE-gate! I recommended it at the last Indivisible planning meeting I attended, late last week.

Good to see it getting repeated. MORE please!

NEVER repeat his buzz-phrases or slogans. Not EVER! All you're doing is helping him.


Don't EVER use what trump coughs up. I bet you can come up with a better one anyway!

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
