1st Look at President Vladimir TrumPutin’s New Staff

Nothing says good ol’ American racism like these three: Kid Rock, Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent. For some reason, maybe because the president is a big ol’ conspiracy-theorist-loving colostomy bag, he had these three over in the White House. No, they aren’t President TrumPutin’s new staff, although they probably have the same IQ. I mean, I can’t think of a time when these three would ever have been inside the White House, but with the Duck Dynasty-ass administration, are you surprised?


Before we go into all of the obvious over-/undertone comical white supremacist stuff going on here, can we pause for a moment and go back to a time when Kid Rock was a white boy from Detroit who wanted badly to dabble in black arts? Remember when he was a rapper? And remember when the news broke that good ol’ America-loving Palin had sex with former NBA forward Glenn Rice?

I have no critical thought here other than that it’s funny the depths to which these two onetime black-loving white folks have fallen so deeply into their whiteness that they can become connected to the likes of Nugent, who has always been a good old-fashioned racist, lest we forget the time he believed that black people should be profiled like dogs.


Nevertheless, the Orange House saw fit to bring this merry band of misfits into its lair because look who’s controlling the helm. I mean, clearly this is his base. Kid Rock makes PBR and NASCAR music, and Palin can see America’s play cousin Mother Russia from her house. And Nugent is a walking racist GIF. I don’t think I could have envisioned a time when this mix of embarrassment would ever be invited to the White House, but when you have a reality star con man as the leader of the free world, this feels about right.

Is that .. is that Hillary Clinton’s official First Lady portrait?

Answering myself: yes, yes it is. Those low-rent motherfuckers.
