The Spinal Tap president: Trump tells ABC his crowd goes to eleven

This goes to eleven

If you haven’t seen ABC’s horrifyngly Spinal-Tappish interview with That Man in the White House yet, you need to go watch it.

At the very least, watch the final segment (embedded in the Tweet below), or even just the final minute of the final segment, in which Trump basically tries to explain that his inauguration crowd goes to eleven. (He also calls the crowd “the sea of love.”)

I’m not the first, or probably even the ten-thousandth, person to make the Spinal Tap comparison. In fact, one person has helpfully combined relevant bits of the interview with audio from Spinal Tap.

Here’s the whole thing, which manages to be scarier than any horror film I’ve seen in years.

If you need me, I’ll just be curled up in a fetal position on the floor.

MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

“If there’s anything more important than me around here, I want it caught and shot, now.”

This is clearly fake news. You said That “Man” in the White House, but the National Park Service has already stated that the orange-haired mammal has not yet been identified:

FACT CHECKED!

It is utterly amazing just how much that man cannot tolerate even the slightest hint that he might not be the greatest at something. Apparently even a number of his advisors have been trying to tell him to just ignore it and move on, that his constant harping on the ‘fact’ is making him look more ridiculous, but Trump has never taken advice well.

Then, of course, there’s the fact that one of the photos he tweeted that ‘proved’ how big his crowds were had the wrong date on it.

(Other people have mentioned that one of the good things about the ‘pussy hats’ was they would make it next to impossible to use pictures of the much larger Women’s March to claim that was his own inauguration.)

One comment on another blog, commenting on Mary Tyler Moore’s recent passing, was noting just how much Trump was like the Ted Baxter character on the Mary Tyler Moore Show: shallow, petty, and desperate for vindication and adulation.

@Falconer:
Even Zaphod Beeblebrox was better suited to be President than Trump. (Though I think his line was ‘If there’s anything more important than my ego around, I want it caught and shot now.’)

I … I can’t watch it. I tried, I just can’t. I can’t watch him and his tight-sprung movements, I can’t listen to his self-aggrandizing drone. He’s a hideous person. I’d say he’s like a lizard, but I like lizards.

There’s some procrustean archetype that fills that hollow suit.
Some shade of former violence that lurks beneath the waves.
A subtle susurrus of hate, a jack inside the boot,
a thin and weedy whisper of a wind through stones of graves.

(i don’t like him)

You could go the Chuck Tingle route and call him a human suit filled with screaming void crabs

I can’t watch. Every second just makes me more mad that I can’t just snap my fingers and make this all go away.

I never thought I’d see the day where the US needs to be saved by trolling a person out of office.

Just look at her! How could you not love that marvelous little mollusc?

“Getting under his skin” does seem to be the most direct route to exposing him as a poorly disguised swarming mass of Void crabs.

My co-workers who voted for him are… speaking in hushed tones. “he’s really just like George Bush… Ronald Reagan… bush… ronald bushreagan he’s not really any “different”… he’s not really the howling screwball that the mainstreemeeedeeya paints him to be… he’ll get to making America Great soon… real soon… just wants to make sure… we all know he won… reeel soon now… ”

Semi-reliable reports tell of Faux News people being beside themselves over the “illegal voters” and “inauguration crowd size” obsessions.

Conway and Spicer both look like they’ve swallowed a corn cob. Up at dawn defending the Howler Monkey’s latest blather, then spend the day walking it back after someone asks them… “uh, really?”

@ Kupo;

We need to keep getting under this man’s skin.

OH, YES!!!!

Haven’t had time to verify, but I heard a rumor it was a resign or be fired situation.

Edit: apologies if that’s in the article. I’m out of free views for the month.

For sure, it doesn’t MATTER if it was a “resign or get fired” situation, we know the cheeto will SAY they quit to avoid getting fired

On the lighter side, at least “W” can be sure history will NOT remember him as the worst president ever… His Cheetoness has taken that honor with less than a week on the job!!

ETA: in defense of crabs, i think “A human suit filled with a screaming void” works just as well

@Jenora, at least Zaphod was trying to accomplish something useful. And I think you’re right about the quote, which nowadays reminds me of Clara in “Deep Breath” — “Nothing’s more important than my ego!”

“Sea of Love”? Barf.

I caught myself thinking, “Maybe he really does care, even though he’s an ineffective idiot.”

But like, the way he pretended to be nice and stuff is EXACTLY what my grandmother did while she tried to get my dad arrested for shit he didn’t do. Narcissists are very two-faced and manipulative.

One hundred million to know what Obama’s letter said.

One hundred billion to know what went through his head when Trump asked him, “This is a little weird, isn’t it?”
