Hello Dad, I'm On The Trump Train

Hello, dad, I'm on the Trump Train
Hi, dad, I'm calling you from the Trump Train
Hi, dad, happy birthday
I'm on the Trump Train
Trump, Trump
Hi, dad
All those years
I'm in on the Trump Train now
I'm in on the Trump Train
I like it here
It's nice, I like it...

From Politico:
Report: George P. Bush urges Republicans to back Trump

Jeb Bush is resolutely #NeverTrump but his son, George P. Bush, no longer is.

George P. Bush, the Texas land commissioner, is breaking with his father, a former Donald Trump Republican primary rival, to back the GOP nominee. George P. Bush's move comes after a nasty Republican primary battle in which Trump repeatedly mocked Jeb Bush, a former Florida governor, as "low energy," among other insults.

The Texas Tribune reported Sunday that at a Saturday gathering of Texas Republican activists Bush said it was time to unite behind Trump in his fall campaign against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

"From Team Bush, it's a bitter pill to swallow, but you know what? You get back up and you help the man that won, and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton," Bush said, according to video made by an audience member.

I remember catching Was, Not Was at the Cabaret Metro in the winter of 1988 (?), but never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be citing them in a post about GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump in 2016.

Then again, I never dreamed that humans would one day be able to order superhero-themed dildos over the internet.

Which just goes to show the timeless wisdom of Sun Tzu when he said over 2,500 years ago:
“If you wait by the river long enough, superhero-themed dildos, the fucked-up remnants of the Bush political dynasty and the bodies of your enemies will float by.”

Bush spawn use every angle and path of dickitude. Plutocracy? What plutocracy?

Pee must not see much of a way forward after Unca W trashed the place, and then Daddy JEB got trashed by Trump. Nifty loyalty there, sonny-boy. Grifter to the bone. True Exemplar of the House Of Shrub.

Wonder if this bothers Granny Bar's beautiful mind or not.

PS Apparently the Oaf Keepers are calling for John McCain to be executed for treason due to his "confessions" whilst tortured by the Viet Cong. Those are Trump's main fanboyz. And PTSD Stockholm Syndrone McCain continues to endorse Trump.

Sun Tzu wasn't just whistling Dixie... or maybe he was!

One spoilt rich kid (Bush) supporting another spoilt rich kid (Trump)?
Where's the incongruity?

I see this as a desperate gamble by P that after Trump badly loses in Nov. that there will still be a Republican Party that cares is he was loyal to the candidate. He is desperate to have his turn at the Grift.

― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Though usually, even unhappy families band together, if only for a moment, when an outsider burns down what's left of the crops.

Just remember that in Texas you can't have more than five of those dildos or they bust you for intending to distribute. Five or less and you're only considered a hobbyist. That was according to Molly Ivins, who hasn't been around for a while, so it's possible they've changed it since then.

Entirely coincidentally, Pee is the new spokesmodel for Trump's new line of albatross neckwear.

Just ponder for a moment what that says about the values taught and passed on in that family.

Family, loyalty? No.

Party affiliation, power, money, grift? Yes.

Damn I hope that sad excuse for a "political dynasty" goes away forever, and soon.

And mad props for tying in Was (Not Was). That record Born To Laugh At Tornadoes was weird as hell but I loved it. Missed the Metro show, still kick myself for that one......

Sound just like Uncle George.
