Is there anything done by the Lord of the Flies which has not been inappropriate?

The guy has no class.

But what can you expect from a guy raised by a doddering grandmother after abandonment by his mother.

A black porn writing mentor as his teacher— perhaps father.

yes , it was inappropriate

Even his wife appeared to think it inappropriate

The only time he appears presidential is when he is trying to sound like JFK at a podium , knowing all eyes and ears are on him . The rest of the time he acts like that pot smoking punk kid at Punahou School .

We do not have a dignified ‘leader’ , we elected a fool

Sitting Mandela up in his casket and putting his arm
around you would be inappropriate.
Taking a selfie of yourself and the hot blond from
Norway would be appropriate IF your wife was not sitting
next to you. Bad move. Sadly I have no doubt many
men, most men even, know THAT look.
The slow burn, if looks could kill, you’ll hear
from me LATER look.

A narcissist cannot resist taking a selfie. His staff had to hire private white house photographers to prevent this kind of thing from happening every day.

She was from Denmark, not Norway.

The only reason the picture was taken was because mac daddy didn’t have a mirror with him so he could admire himself and decided that at least he could look at a picture of himself and admire that instead.

I watch a TV channel called MeTV periodically. It airs old time programming from The Twilight Zone to The Fugitive and more. Anyway, one promo on the channel shows a scroll with "a list of words you will never hear on MeTV": for instance, the Kardashians and other dumbing-down of America terms. Another is "selfie." I truly did not know that word until I saw the scroll.

In all fairness to The Kenyan, I think it was the Prime Minister of Denmark (the lady in the middle) who was actually taking the picture.

That is true, but a normal, well-adjusted, mature adult would give her a dirty look or tell her it was inappropriate at a memorial service.

Everyone around them is somber and they’re yukking it up like a couple hitting it off at a bar during happy hour.

No wonder Moochelle is PO’d.

Any truth to the rumor that Michelle took lamp-throwing lessons from Hillary?

“from a guy raised by a doddering grandmother”

Yeah she must have been in her late 40s or early 50s when she took him in.

That certainly is old.

And that, especially—most men would NOT do that in front of their wives. More proof that this marriage is a sham.

Mo is POed.

Barry is having too much fun with the white girl.

Granted, Mo is POed a lot.

But I've never seen Mo this POed.
