IT BEGINS: Trump trolls Joe Biden with “welcome back” message!

Everyone who watched Joe Biden’s weird heart-to-heart video about his creepy hands yesterday knows that he’s running for president, even though he hasn’t officially announced.

After the video came out, Carpe Donktum created a creepy hands meme out of it that Donald Trump Jr. soon thereafter retweeted.

And now President Trump has jumped in the mix, retweeting the same meme with the message “WELCOME BACK JOE!”

Many on the right are enjoying this on Twitter, but some on the left are not so happy.

I’ll leave their tweets to your imagination and just make this an open thread for ya.

    A man goes to work, walks behind a female employee, whispers in her ear, rubs her shoulders, smells her hair and then kisses the back of her head.
    This man would be fired the same day, but Joe Biden can get away with it because he’s a Democrat.

      A good article. I think everyone knows conservatives are being suppressed, however I don’t believe govt should be asked to step in & fix it via regulations. That would be a disaster.

      1. Sam, as I understand it, it’s just changing their status from platform to publisher. The rules are already in place.

  2. Seems to me this is an area Trump should just stay quiet about. Let others make the attacks or jokes. With his history it just allows opponents opportunity to point to his past.

  3. Many on the right are enjoying this on Twitter, but some on the left are not so happy.

    This is the kind of thing I point to when I’m discussing how the right is headed in the wrong direction.

    Also, leftists are never happy.

  4. This right here is exactly why Trump has so many fans or enemies. He doesn’t play the leftist, political, PC games. He just says it like it is. This is why Twitter is so much better with Trump tweeting!!

  5. The only funny scene in the cat video (to me) was the “Risky Business” one. The cat goes flying across the floor and crashes into the wall. I have seen cats do this and it’s always funny.

      1. @sheerpolitics Yes I am. I laugh at a lot of the things they do. I just didn’t think a lot of the video had anything to do with cat behavior and it wasn’t very funny. Like the Godzilla cat. Yawn.

        1. Ok, I thought it was telling when you said you liked the one where the cat appeared to slide into a wall.

          Personally I thought the one from The Shining with the cat breaking into the bathroom was hilarious.

          1. @sheerpolitics Telling…as if I thought it was funny for a cat to bash itself senseless or something? No, that’s not it. Two of the cats I used to have would chase each other doing 90 mph, using the walls and everything else as props to make immediate turns. When they did it running across the kitchen floor they kept sliding and would crash and burn. It was hilarious.

            As far as the cat in “The Shining” scene… I have a cat now that does that a lot and it pi**es me off. It’s not funny at all. He’ll do it if you shut him out of a room or if he wants in the house. He’ll jump 4 feet into the air to bash into my bedroom window to say “let me in mo-fo!” If I’m in the living room he jumps on the air conditioner outside and scratches at the window like in the scene here. It annoys the heck out of me so I let him in.

  6. I don’t go to movies, and I do what I can to not support Disney, but I have to see the live action Lion King. That is my all time favorite animated movie. Anyway. I went and found owl kitty on Youtube and shared with my son, the in-house cat person.

    1. Lion King? Hmm. I didn’t like that one at all. For me it was the sign that all of the good Disney animated features were done. Each of the Alan Menken involved features were better, I think. His music totally made those work. Lion King just seemed like corporate fluff to me.

      1. To each his own. I like when Rafiki raps Simba on the head and Simba says, “What was that for?” Rafiki replies, “What does it matter? It is in the past.” That has always stuck with me. Also, I first saw it with my mom when I was 20 years old so there may be a special memory for me that sways me toward it.

        1. Yeah, I get that. My kids were in the perfect sweet spot for Aladdin, & Little Mermaid, so those are extra special for us. Even Mary Poppins was awesome to watch with them. But Lion King was not a hit with them, either.

          1. I love Aladdin. Robin Williams really made that movie what it was. As for Mary Poppins, my daughter watched it over and over and over again. She LOVED it! I have never cared for it, so it was torment for me. I guess they can’t all be universally loved.

            1. Heh. Too true!

              I suspect the new Mary Poppins movie coming out is gonna bomb. But I’ll try to keep an open mind.

  7. I just love The Dodo. So much happiness. As for Trump making fun of uncle Joe Biden? Ummm. Meme was funny, but…umm…

  8. I have a question.

    I’ve been thinking for a while about giving people a way to support the site in exchange for a completely ad-free experience.

    I see other sites doing it.

    What would you guys think about that?

        1. Scoop… fwiw most of the good folks in here scoffed at the idea of paying 28 cents a day for the most conservative platform out there (Levin, Deace, Glenn Beck…)

          1. It would be completely voluntary if someone wanted to support the site. There should be no scoffing hopefully.

          2. I don’t see the point in paying for Blaze/CR content when I’m able to listen to them live for free. I may miss some video content or other bonuses they provide, but I don’t feel like I’m missing much. I get the idea of giving support, but why pay for the cow when the milk is free and all that? Same for Shapiro’s platform.

        2. I enjoy your site and our fellow armchair commentators RS.
          If you are a non profit our donations would be a write off.
          How much do the pesky adds supplement your cost?
          How about sponsorship’s, donations?

    1. I haven’t even paid to avoid ads on Words with Friends and have been playing for at least 7 years, and they’re annoying. The ads here don’t bother me at all. That’s my input.

      1. It’s really not about the ads. It’s about supporting TRS. The ad-free experience is just something that I can give in return for the wonderful gesture of support.

        1. Gotcha. I’d be glad to support. I just wanted to put out there how some of us may think about it. I know I, for one, am a tight *ss.

    2. I don’t mind the ads. I never have. I also don’t care when we get Ukranian robot posters telling us how to make money from home. They’re fun to talk to.

      I am curious about one thing with this new commenting format though – is there a way to enlarge the visible word count? Such that longer posts don’t get condensed without spacing/formatting with a “Read More” at the bottom?

      1. As I said above, It’s really not about the ads. It’s about supporting TRS and the ad-free experience is just something that I can give in return for the wonderful gesture of support.

        And yes, I have completely control over the “read more” comment length. I’ll see about upping it a little. But also keep in mind that if I make it too long it disrupts the flow.

        1. So it’s a global setting, not one we can individualize for our own viewing? Hmm. Well, thanks for considering it.

          As for donations – I think they’re a fine idea for your regulars, but they can be off-putting to new users. The appearance of them naturally lends one to think they’re missing something if they’re not paying. It’s like apps that are “free,” but are somewhat useless unless you start doing microtransactions. I think if you’re going to do it, you should keep it subtle. Like a tip jar off to the side, not a collection box when you walk in the door, y’know?

    3. I’m a member at the Phoronix computer/tech discussion website. They have a good model like you are talking about – people who pay $5 a month are called “premium members” and they get all kinds of benefits, including ad-free and better scrolling through the comments. They get HTTPS browsing by default, and a premium-only discussion room. One of the top benefits is that the website posts a few articles per month that the premium subscribers indicate they are most interested in.

      Phoronix also offers long-term membership options, such as $35 to pay for a full year, so that the premium member is only out $3 a month, but the website gets all the money up front. People who do not pay can still use the site, but they do not get the premium benefits.

    4. I really wouldn’t mind ads, but this site and many others have those clicky-bait ads where the photos look disgusting or they’re of the, “You won’t believe what these child stars look like now!” genre. What happened to ads that were about products the site visitor might be interested in?

    1. It also will be a nail biter because Trump CANNOT lose, and the fraud will be rampant.
