“We’ll get to your son in a minute, but have you heard how big the crowds at my inauguration were? Huge, tremendous crowds, biggest in history!”

Recently, yet another Trump-related controversy has erupted as Donald Trump has accused former presidents Obama and George W. Bush of never calling the families of soldiers killed in the line of duty to express their condolences. Patting himself on the back, Trump said that he likes to call when it’s appropriate (although, judging by his Twitter feed, it’s not clear if Donald Trump actually knows the meaning of the word “appropriate”). However, recordings of many of Donald Trump’s tremendously compassionate calls out to the families of the fallen soldiers have been leaked to this blog. Here are 10 of them.

1)  “Let me just start by saying that this is a very difficult call for me to make. I’m at a golf course right now, tremendous golf course, first class, but the phone connection is a total disaster here, so you have no idea how unbelievably difficult this was for me to call you. Anyway, your son’s dead, oh, and I gotta get back to the game now. MAGA!”

2)  “…I want to thank your son for his service to me, I mean, to the United States of America, even though he’s Puerto Rican. What? Puerto Rico is America? That’s fake news! Really? Seriously, no one knew Puerto Rico was part of America!..”

3)  “…Just wanted to give my warmest condolences because I heard your son got killed. Although, honestly, I like those who don’t get killed…”

4)  “…This your president Donald Trump speaking… what do you mean, this isn’t a good time for you to talk right now?… What funeral? I call when it’s appropriate for me, and I don’t know why you people keep crying and having funerals when I call you, but when the president of the United States of America is calling you, it’s kind of a big deal! You people should be grateful and honored!”

5)  “…I got kids of my own, you know. Great kids. They got amazing genes, really smart, so they didn’t want go to the military like your kid…”

6)  “…You should be honored that your family’s death toll was just one, not like a real disaster like the World War Two or Three!”

7)  “…They showed me your girl’s picture, she was a pretty good-looking one. Tremendous body. At least an eight, maybe even a nine. Definitely not a ten, though. Does she have a younger sister? I bet she’s even hotter. But not as hot as Ivanka. I’d still date her, probably. Just don’t tell my wife Menalia or what’s-her-name…”

8)  “…I just want to say that I really appreciate your kid’s sacrifice. If there’s anything your family needs, like a border wall, a Muslim ban, a tremendous tax cut on estates, I can make it happen. I can throw in some paper towels, too, people in Puerto Rico loved them…”

9)  “…So this is very sad news, I mean, these military funerals are expensive, and we got all this yuge hundred trillion dollar debt from Obama, a total failure as the president, by the way, worst president ever, but we’re getting this amazing, unbelievable growth, so this is totally unfair that we have to increase our debt to pay for your funeral…”

10)  “…Hi, it’s me, just leaving a message since I haven’t been able to reach you. I’m gonna need your guys again to hack a bunch of total crooks, yuge pains in the ass, and maybe the failing CNN and New York Times, and I’ll owe you, as usu… What? This isn’t Putin’s number? Who did you dial? Some soldier? Ah, fu…” (dial tone)

  1. Beautiful! Tremendous! Huge! Amazing!

    Yes, warmest condolences was a WTF moment.


  3. Dr. Rex says:

    Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
    There’s always truth in jest!! The sad thing is that these comments could be very well coming from this ‘so-called president’ …


  4. Steve Ruis says:

    I wish it were … funny. It was all too believable. Well done, though, well done.


  5. Jim Wheeler says:

    Psychopathy, sometimes considered synonymous with sociopathy, is traditionally defined as a personality disorder characterized by persistent antisocial behavior, impaired empathy and remorse, and bold, disinhibited, egotistical traits. — Wikipedia


  6. Ned's Blog says:

    That’s why I screen my calls.


  7. Ouch… and HA! Houch? Ouha?


  8. I really do wish I could laugh at this list. Unfortunately I was a US Marine and did my tour in the useless Vietnam war. Lost too many great buddies there. Yeah, I enlisted, knew I’d probably get sent to that damn fool war, but to have the commander-in-chief tell the family members that the dead trooper knew what he’d signed up for……..well, I cannot post how I really feel about that crap. Nope, not on the blog of anybody except my own, and I don’t think I’ll even try that. Probably bust my bloody damn keyboard.


  9. You worked ‘total disaster’ in right out of the gate. That’s his catch phrase. This displays a thorough familiarity with your subject. Congrats. Sort of. ‘I heard your son got killed’ is the best inappropriate laugh in here. For shame. And thanks. What’s the big idea tagging this as political satire? This is 100% factual, isn’t it? Sure sounds like it.

      Trump is really easy to satirize: Unlike all recent former presidents, he has the same words – the best words! – he keeps using, as if he has a 500-1000 word vocabulary.
      And, as you said, it’s also hard to satirize his, since a Trump satire is just imagining some ridiculous thing he hasn’t done or said, until he goes and does that very thing, or something even more ridiculous.


  10. makes me laugh and then be angry because all of them are what that giant orange turd would say


  11. Excellent, as usual. I liked the Puerto Rico references in particular.


I can see you have something to say...
