Another day, another blistering, juvenvile Twitter explosion from Donald Trump.

It’s a pleasantly-cool Friday evening here in north Texas and I just finished a tasty meal fit for a disabled senior citizen ... a 7½-ounce tub of Chef Boyardee spaghetti and meatballs nuked in my desktop microwave with a side order of napkins. Plus a can of diet ginger ale. At the same time I’ve been scanning political news on some of my favorite websites — Addicting Info, Raw Story, Wonkette — and ran across this blistering, juvenile Twitter barrage from (who else?) the crusted Manhattan orangutan Donald Trump after Mitt Romney challenged him to show the American people his tax returns. In case you haven’t already seen these, check them out here courtesy of the Howdygram.
The Howdygram’s official position is: DONALD TRUMP IS A SICK BASTARD. He’s so thin-skinned that a simple suggestion from Mitt Romney sends him into an uncontrollable rage like a wounded animal backed into a corner. I’m sure Trump believes he successfully kicked Romney’s ego in the balls ... except we need to remind him that the GOP backed Mitt for president in 2008 and 2012 and tried (unsuccessfully) to draft him a third time for 2016. Maybe if Mitt hadn’t turned them down Donald would be an unpleasant afterthought by now. Fuck you, Donald Trump, and fuck the jet you flew in on!

However ... as with any outrageous story about Donald Trump, there’s always one more. At a rally today in Fort Worth, Texas, Trump decided to bash the First Amendment by threatening to sue every time the press writes a “purposely negative” article about him. God forbid if somebody doesn’t love the Fuhrer! Trump’s plan, one of the few policy positions he’s actually laid out, would be to “open up” the libel laws so he can sue newspapers into oblivion. In other words, BE NICE TO ME OR I’LL DESTROY YOU.
“I’m gonna open up our libel laws, so when they write purposely negative and horrible, false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money. So that when The New York Times writes a hit piece, which is a total disgrace, or when The Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money.” Trump closed by promising his fans that he’ll “sue” critics like they’ve “never got sued before.”

Why bother with a lawsuit, Donald? Haven’t you ever heard of a firing squad?!

I had a fun and creatively fulfilling day today designing a pile of new products for The Howdygram Store, including all-occasion note cards, thank you cards, adorable greeting cards and a monogrammed giraffe-print mini-clutch. I’ve actually got quite an ambitious list of additional products on the horizon, including tote bags, iPhone cases, keychains and themed spiral notebooks for bridal showers. It’s my plan to get started this weekend in-between naps!

In case you’re wondering, I have another substantial herd of exciting new FREE FONTS for you, but they’ll have to wait until my next Howdygram post due to the late hour (almost 10:30 p.m.), I have to pee and Sam will be home from work any minute now.

Thank you for reading this!
