I’ll admit that it was quite painful show to sit through, but I gotta give the lot of amateur actors props for giving it their all, making it through to the end of their frazzled and cornball production.
We literally LOLed at intermission, though, because this one old coot in the audience who’d obviously been dragged to the theater to see this performance hollered out, “And for THISI missed the Mandrell Sisters?”
He was referring to a country music-variety series on TV starring country singer Barbara Mandrell and her sisters, Louise and Irlene (hmm, perhaps the inspiration for Lurleen Lumpkin, an aspiring country singer in “The Simpsons”?).
This memory surfaced this week when I spotted this headline: “’I Can’t Believe I’m Going to Jail for an NFT Salesman’: Jan. 6 Rioter Seemingly Done with Trump After Announcement Flop” (HERE)
Earlier in the week Trump got everyone riled up when he divulged that on Thursday he would make a “major announcement.” All the Low-IQ-anon folks and MAGA morons were abuzz with anticipation! I suspect many of them thought that finally, JFK Junior was back and ready to join the “Keeping Looking Ahead Now” (KLAN) ticket with Trump for a 2024 presidential run.
Alas, Trump’s “major announcement” was nothing more than a bland and bush-league infomercial where he hawked digital trading cards, his latest grift.
The humiliating stunt was uncomfortable to watch, even for the cray-cray right wing nutjobs who lionize their icon (and believe me, there is no word more fitting for Trump than “I con”).
Poor Half-Baked Alaska – sounds like he had his “And for THIS I missed the Mandrell Sisters” moment. He’s not ready to storm the US Capitol again so that he can get his copy of a Jesus Trump Trading Card.

In response to Trump's overnight success with his Trading Cards, Kellyanne Conway announced that she is planning to release a set of lifelike dolls personifying key members of the Trump administration and cabinet.
Pictured at the right: Kellyanne is shown with her doll, dubbed "Alternative Kellyanne."
Back to Trump's Trading Cards, there is still one thing that confuses me: Why aren't they called "Traitor Cards"?
