So far in the saga of the new President, we have discussed destructive outrage, outrage after Republicans decided to push through confirmation of two Trump cabinet nominees after Democrats decided to
boycott the proceedings not show up for work that day, outrage over Starbucks promising to hire some refugees over the next five years, boycotts of Trump products – even ones by his daughter – because TRUMP!
OUTRAGE! OUTRAGE! OUTRAGE!
So I guess the true progtards have now run out of things to be outraged about, so we’ve reached the level of “stupid outrage.” This is outrage so dumb, that even the engagement editor from Mother Jones – you know the ultra progressive magazine – called it “the dumbest outrage ever.”
You see, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway recently had the unmitigated gall to sit kneeling on the couch in the Oval Office!
I’ll wait for you to finish gasping in sheer horror.
You read that right.
Deray McKesson, who apparently has never met an incident he didn’t link to racism in some way, howled that Conway’s informal pose indicates that no one is to take the “meeting,” which just happened to be with leaders of traditionally black colleges and universities, seriously. Therefore, RAAAACISM!!
One cannot possibly *headdesk* hard enough to wipe the stupid!
Other scandalized screeches included complaints about her decorum. After all, this is the Oval Office! How classless!
Just look at that lack of decorum and lack of class!
The Oval is an office. Yes, it is a historically significant office in a historically significant building, but it is still an office, and work takes place there, including late night sessions, in which sometimes *GASP* people tend to be informal, take their shoes off, wear jeans, and even sit on the floor!
Conway was caught in a moment after the official portion of the meeting was apparently over, and the attendees gathered for a group shot. She took a photo with her phone and was in the process of examining it when the outrageous picture was snapped.
Oh, the horror!
This latest “controversy” came on top of the horrifying, nation-destroying revelation that 45 apparently eats his steaks well-done, with ketchup.
Now, granted, as a fan of steak, it’s fairly horrifying to me that anyone would eat their meat well-done and slathered in a sugar and artificial color-filled, tomato-like substance, but hey… to each his own. Ruining a perfectly good cut of meat is not a federal offense, although one might think so, judging from the wailing lamentations from the progtard left!
Ostentatious Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema nearly shat his progressive panties at the thought!
Also: Trump ordered a strip steak, which he ate per his preference, well-done and with ketchup, as if the entree would be accompanied by a sippy cup. (Insert a moment of silence for the cow, the condiment and what most chefs would call a forced marriage. Really, I feel the same way about masking the flavor of a $54 dry-aged steak as I do about guys who wear baseball caps indoors: Just don’t. And pity the new kitchen lead, chef de cuisine Brian Drosenos, who had to deal with the ultimate VIP in his first week on the job.)
Kevin Pang – the food editor of the A.V. Club was downright morally offended on the cow’s behalf, clutching his pearls in emasculated angst!
What asshole goes out to dinner at one of the nation capital’s most-acclaimed steakhouses, orders a 30-day dry aged New York strip, then asks the chef to cook it well done? And if that’s not enough, eats it with ketchup like a 5-year-old?
What kind of an asshole spends precious time publicly criticizing another person’s food choices?
Seriously, this is what the progtards are now freaking out about? Well, that and Melania’s dress, which was apparently too short for church, which is the first time they’ve given a flying rat’s fuck about what goes on inside any house of worship since they decided churches needed to be forced perform gay weddings.
There’s plenty to be concerned about with the current administration. Deteriorating relations with Mexico, a resurgent and aggressive Russia, Iran, China, North Korea are all important issues, but they require critical thinking and analysis, so the progtards would rather focus on OMGWELLDONESTEAKSHORTSKIRTKNEELONCOUCHINOVALMANCHURIANCHEETO!
