You say, “Potato.” I say, “WTF?!”

From dcist:

President Donald Trump took aim at Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam during a briefing at the White House on Tuesday, declaring his intent to “go after” the state and its “crazy governor” as he gave remarks on government efforts to support U.S. farmers.

Following an appearance from a Virginia potato farmer, the president said, “We’re going after Virginia, with your crazy governor. We’re going after Virginia. They want to take your Second Amendment away, you know that. You’ll have nobody guarding your potatoes.”

No worries. The governor can always call in Virginia’s National Potato Guard.

Northam responded to Trump’s comment in a tweet on Tuesday, writing, “I grew up on a Virginia farm, Mr. President—our potatoes are fine. And as the only medical doctor among our nation’s governors, I suggest you stop taking hydroxychloroquine.” The president announced on Monday that he was taking the drug, which is unproven as a treatment for the coronavirus, to ward off COVID-19. Northam added, “Let’s all get back to work.”

The president’s comment is just his latest criticism of Northam on issues of the Second Amendment. Last month, he accused the governor and Virginia Democrats of trying to take guns away from residents after the Democratic-controlled General Assembly passed a series of bills aimed at strengthening gun laws, even appearing to link the new laws to the coronavirus pandemic.

You can’t make this s*h*i*t up.

  1. Dear God, Twitler is such a bastard. He just can not control his vitriol toward any of the democratic governors. He keeps getting worse (if that is possible) and still has not expressed any sympathy for the loss of lives from Covid-19. Unbelievable how low he will go. I swear the man keeps getting sicker and bolder with his political smears and how he talks to the female reporters.

  2. Drat, our evil plot to invade rural Virginia and seize all their potatoes will be foiled if they get to keep their guns. Trump wins again!

    M*A*S*H*E*D is inspired. And the Trumpanzees are potato heads all right. Maybe they’ve been interbreeding with the crop. It would explain a lot.

    • I know I always took a gun with me to protect my baked potato when I went to restaurants.

      It was either M*A*S*H*E*D or the special potato squad of the Twitler Youth called Tater Tots. 😉

  3. The whole thing is a liberal plot to prop up Big Potato.

    • Hi bluzdude,

      Welcome to The Raisin! 😀

      I think you’re onto something. Big Potato, Big Carb, the Fryers Club, who knows who the Stuffed shirts might be with their Twice-Baked ideas, taking us all for Au Gratin? I suspect Spuds Mackenzie might be behind this, or maybe even Popeye! Spinach, my ass. I think we’ve broken the code for I yam what I yam. Whatever the case, keep your ears open and your eyes peeled.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Hope to see you again soon. 🙂
