Nuclear holy war, Chi-Raqi occupation, and Al Gore’s “big ugly ass.” Welcome to This Week In Crazy, The National Memo’s weekly update on the loony, bigoted, and hateful behavior of the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

5. Jack Posobiec

Less crazy than dumb, Posobiec — the alt-righter who sued Alamo Drafthouse for its limited all-female screenings of Wonder Woman — tweeted the following in response to President Trump’s escalatory remarks on North Korea:

This is a classic example of justifying incompetence as three-dimensional chess. If you asked Trump to spell “genius,” he’d start writing the letter j before getting distracted by a push notification.

(Also, there’s no precedent for writing six as “VI” — unless you learned Roman numerals in school that day and wanted to show off. But I don’t care: this tweet’s not going on the fridge.)

  1. Would like to add one.

    When Putin expelled 755 US Embassy staff from Russia; Trump responded his thanks as he was looking to cut the size and cost of the State Department anyhow.

    Leaving aside the obvious errors, is that the response of anyone older than 10?

    • That response literally left me slack jawed 😳 The expulsion of these US diplomats is supposed to be punishing us for sanctions against Russia. This idiot actually thanks Putin since we don’t need them on the payroll saving taxpayers money. They’re still on the payroll but are having to return home. Reminds me of the line in Animal House where those being initiated with paddling say Thank You Sir may I have another ?

    • I remember my son disciplining his 3 year old son. He told his son to sit in the corner. His son sat there a few seconds and turned around to his father and said, “I like sitting in the corner, Daddy.”

  2. All morning on CNN, I’ve been hearing how diplomacy vis-a-vis North Korea, mainly during the Clinton and Obama administrations hasn’t worked. (They never mention the Dubya administration by name, of course.) I beg to differ. North Korea is Kim Jong Un’s (and his father and grandfather) Kingdom of Paranoia. The entire country is in a constant state of expectation that the United States is going to attack. Everyone there believes it. As a result, they have built up a huge military machine that is quite capable of taking over South Korea if the U.S. were not standing in the way. They may be paranoid and appear nuts, but they’re not stupid. They know that attacking either South Korea or the United States would spell the end of their beautiful communist paradise and the Kim dynasty. So there has been no resumption of the hostilities of the early 1950s. In that sense, the uneasy truce and the diplomacy that has accompanied it has actually worked. The Trump apologists make it sound like there has been a hot war in Korea since 1953 and that U.S. weakness has been responsible for it. In fact, there have been few hostilities in Korea since 1953 (I can recall a rogue axe attack on U.S. personnel by North Korean troops), and North Korea is not stupid enough to attack the United States or even pretend to attack. Trump’s rhetoric, such as it is, is more proof for North Korea that they’re right: The U.S. is about to attack.

    • Remember the hostage in North Korea? Remember how Bill Clinton went over and treated Kim Jong IL with respect and got the hostage released? I do think the right person could come up with a treaty.

    • I’m quite certain that if Clinton were our President today she would have found a diplomatic solution but alas what could’ve been. Once again I have to thank flyover America for squeaking Donnie thru by a mere 78,000 votes to win in the Electoral College 😒

      • You’re right Dan, Secretary Clinton would have been able to solve this without threats of war, and our troops in Guam and South Korea have always been on the ready, I think their motto is “Fight Tonight” so it’s not like Trump’s rhetoric has changed anything.

      • I’m pretty sure that was Trump’s goal in the first place, we’ve all known Kim Jung was just a fat mouthed little puke, but now we have to take him seriously because of Trump.

  3. Thank You National Memo for bringing back This Week In Crazy. It’s quite appropriate to have with the most dangerous President this nation has had even more so than HarryTruman. As devastating as Hiroshima was then today’s nuclear arsenal is much more powerflu and Donnie has been itching to use them since he’s received the nuclear codes. He reminds me a lot of Martin Sheens dangerous Presidential wannabe from Stephen Kings The Dead Zone

  4. This low I.Q. POS, loves to bully. He said, one time, that two things, his father taught him, was never back down and get even. It will not matter that if he nukes North Korea that they will strike back. He cannot see that far ahead. You never see a war monger on the first horse leading the troops into battle. Most of them would have enhanced flatulence in their jeans if they were ever confronted without their guards around them. For the sake of life, limbs, and sanity for our young men and women in the service, negotiate. Of course, there isn’t anyone in the trump administration that is smart enough to negotiate.

  5. Ha ha ha, yeah. Just one more review in the craziness in America each week. But we do need the humor of it all.
    Alec Jones is the flatulence in the diarrhea ward. You are not sure what form it takes, but you know it will stink in any event.
    But the 2 so-called religious ones, Jefferrs and Bakker. Yeah, they epitomize why so many are not religious anymore.
    And with Trumpty Dumpty and Ping Pong, I think the ‘teachers’ should just dump large buckets of ice water on both and declare recess over.

  6. Wanna hear a joke?
    Q: What do Melania and an old Macintosh computer have in common?
    A: Both are stuck with an antiquated 3 inch floppy.
    Hahaha.

    • LOL. Good one old_blu. Not to worry. Melania only has to say her safe word, cofefe, after all that 3 inch punishment.

      Personally, I’ve always thought that the best Melania speech was, “ask not what Donald can do for you, but why you think Donald can do anything!”

  7. A God-given mission? Do all those who regard Religion as just some perfunctory duty speak to God personally? The members of the clergy who think God approves of Trump’s actions shows that these same clerics have been smoking to much weed, or chewing qat.

    Like Richard Pryor’s joke about preachers talking to God on a personal level, Jim Bakker and others who call themselves Evangelicals are often in personal contact with God.

    Jim probably heard God speak to him, while Jim was walking down the street eating a tuna fish sandwich, telling Jim that Trump would be OK in launching a strike against North Korea. And so, Jim’s hallucination led him to issue his latest support of Trump.

    • Clearly, Satan is working overtime these days in the lives of false religious teachers like Jeffress and Bakker and other misguided Evangelicals;.and also in the lives of ministers, preachers and whatever of religions that support Trump. Only someone taken over by the spirit of Satan would even suggest that God would be working in the life of a person who is the exact image of Satan himself.

      Donald Trump embodies every corruption of the human spirit that is attributable to the Devil: greed, avarice, sexual exploitation, pathological lying, lust, envy, world adoration, self adoration, spiritual depravation and on and on. Suggesting that God would purposely deal with such a totally corrupt individual is outright heresy and an abomination; and can be believed only by those who have aligned themselves with the Devil.

  8. Have you noticed not only Trump but all the right wing crazies and right wing religious crazies have never spent a day in the military. They talk tough but are all hat and no cattle. The religious leaders all claim God is on our side or at least on their side. Having served in the Marines during Vietnam, I know I am not so tough I want a nuclear war. I guess I from my experience fear a military option more than they do.

  9. The U.S. has been pushing the can down the road for the last 8 years in North Korea. Now they have nuclear weapons and just may use them in the near future. President Trump will not bow down North Korea as Obama did. If Obama or Hillary were in office when N. Korea threatened to bomb Guam, they would have given Guam to them, instead of standing up for them.
