I’m alive. I made it through surgery. Had some breathing issues post-op, so they kept me in the hospital a bit longer as a precaution. The procedure itself only lasted about an hour and a half, but then, all of a sudden, I wasn’t getting enough oxygen. For several hours. So, they kept me there longer on oxygen to ensure I didn’t die or anything.
I didn’t. But I’ve been on some great pain pills since. Also some anti-nausea stuff, which has been a Godsend, especially when combined with the anti-nausea patch they stuck behind my ear!
In other words, aside from massive amounts of pain, I’m good. Sort of stoned, but good. And sleeping a lot.
Now, on to news. Well, maybe not news. But this ran across my feed today.
Moments after Donald Trump took the stage on a college campus in Colorado Springs, he tore into what is really making America not so great.
“We have thousands of people in a room next door,” he said. “We have thousands of people trying to get in and we have a fire marshal that says ‘No, we can’t allow more people in.’”
Trump said it was “so unfair” to those who couldn’t make it inside the 1,500-capacity auditorium.
“They won’t let them in, and the reason they won’t let them in is because they don’t know what the hell they’re doing, that’s why,” Trump said to loud cheers. “That’s why our country has — hey, maybe they’re a Hillary person. Could that be the answer? Probably.”
Let’s start with the obvious. Trump is a fucking retard. His campaign didn’t book a venue large enough to hold the audience, and then they oversold the number of tickets, leaving the Fire Marshal to do his job and cap the number of people entering the auditorium.
But, of course, it’s never Trump’s fault. Ever. It’s not his campaign’s fault for handing out too many tickets. It’s not his fault for not booking a bigger venue.
No, the fault is, of course, with the Fire Marshal for doing his job and ensuring that the thousands of people who came to see him weren’t at risk.
And for this transgression, Brett Lacey MUST be a Democrat and a Hillary voter. He just MUST! There’s no other explanation for depriving the Great Hairy Hemorrhoid™ of what he’s obviously entitled to! Lacey MUST be a Democrat.
Except he’s not.
There are two Brett Laceys registered to vote in Colorado. One lives in Colorado Springs and was born in 1961, and is a registered Republican. The other one was born in 1991, and is a registered Libertarian.
In another article Lacey said he was a registered voter, but declined to give his party affiliation. The Colorado database was pretty easy to search.
Unlike Trump, who also called retired Marine General John Allen a failure, because Allen is not supporting his candidacy, Brett Lacey has some class.
After being called out several times by the hairy bag of douche, he merely said the following:
“There’s an old adage that when a fire marshal walks into a room, milk curdles. So because we’re always looking out for public safety and trying to make certain venues go off successfully and safely sometimes there are people that aren’t very happy with some of the rules and regulations were required to enforce. But it doesn’t bother me at all,” he said.
That’s called class. Perhaps Trump should learn some.
