Ew, not because you posted a selfie, Geraldo.  Ew, because you’re supposed to be a journalist.  YOU ARE NOT THE STORY.

70 is the new 50 (Erica and family are going to be so pissed…but at my age…) pic.twitter.com/KU9IQhaF0w

And, by the way, Geraldo, there are tools that you can use to rotate that photo.

UPDATE:  Geraldo deleted his tweet and removed his selfie from Twitter.  Apparently, he hasn’t learned that people can actually take screen shots.  He also hasn’t figured out that he makes himself look worse by backtracking.

BTW, check out that profile pic.  Apparently, 70 is also the old 30.

Poor Donald’s Fragile Ego

On ABC’s This Week yesterday, George Will took Mitt Romney to task for his association with Donald Trump and his unflagging devotion to birtherism.  In the process, Will managed to call Trump out not only for his lack of value to Romney but also for his abiding ignorance:

“I do not understand the cost benefit here. The costs are clear. The benefit — what voter is going to vote for him because he is seen with Donald Trump? The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me. Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics.”

Donald’s ego strength must be as flimsy as his hair souffle, because he immediately took to Twitter in an attempt to denigrate George Will:

And then there’s this one, conflating George Will with Rosie O’Donnell (Trump’s other obsession):

He just doesn’t give up:

If George Will is so obviously third-rate, why did you invite him to Mar-a-Lago?

Trump apparently doesn’t realize how desperate he appears if he has nothing better to do with his time than to get into Twitter wars with his betters.

Doesn’t he have a supposed empire to run?  Doesn’t one of those gardens at Mar-a-Lago need weeding? Isn’t there a toilet somewhere that needs gold-leafing?

This Week in Misspelling

In my continuing effort to assist Chyron operators, may I present the following:


One would hope that someone responsible for putting presidential candidates’ names on the screen of a national news program would know how to spell those candidates’ names. Well, perhaps he/she was flummoxed by the fact that George Will was calling out Donald Trump.
