A, and I cannot stress this enough, four hundred thousand dollar car, wrapped in a five cent Facebook post.

It's like if the MAGAbomber had Bruce Wayne's budget.

What do we think the odds are that he's also claiming a good portion of the car's purchase price as a tax write-off (hence the company name)

I am unsurprised that a late model Lambo owner would be tasteless and also a Trump supporter. But not an expert in supercars. Maybe i'm missing a nuance.

Why would anyone be surprised that someone with the means to own an exorbitantly expensive car could have so little taste.
You know the guys that did that work were probably Latinos who made fun of him in Spanish all day long.
@Mary G: Shame there’s no Spanish on the detailing for “I’m a horse’s ass.”
This is cool except that 11th grade Conan O’Brien had neater printing than I’ve ever achieved:
We back on? Lots of error glitches over the past 24 hours.
One of the more amusing things living in NYC was watching a much younger Trump try and buy himself into the NYC upper class and them having none of it. Trump thought the folks giving big piles of money to the Met would be impressed by him. They just laughed at the rich garbage boy like world leaders do. That’s basically been his entire life.
People buy Lambos for the same effect. They’re shitty cars, but you can’t miss them, and that’s why they exist.
@Mary G: Expand the pix; Lumpy’s face still has the fold of the plastic sheet through his face. Bibi’s looks a little better.
Half seriously considering making “Peas mean something” my mantra after stumbling upon this piece o’ history.
We really don’t deserve Ryan Reynolds.
Mr Rambo Lambo is missing a trick by not shipping that monstrosity (and its car) over to this side of the Atlantic. The Guardian and/or BBC would snap him up as an ‘independent commentator on how Labour’s anti-Semitism problem looks from abroad” before you could say “Two Felons, One Hood”.
Why yes I am thoroughly disgusted with the British Media’s complete abdication of electoral anti-bias guidelines, why do you ask?
@Martin: I don’t care, not giving him back. If Canada want’s, they can have trump.
That thought makes me exceedingly happy.
Well, I made the mistake of lying down to “rest my eyes” for a bit at 8:00, which led to a three-hour nap, which led to, well, here I am. Been awake for hours, reading in bed. Not conducive to going back to sleep. So I made a cup of artisanal, fair-trade Trader Joe’s instant coffee, and I’m having that with a few pieces of their tasty rugelach.
The housecat was delighted to get a late-late/early-early snack.
@Mary G: I clicked the link to read the response. What a great letter.
Aviation Gin is my new brand!
@Steeplejack: Who are those women? (Yes, I need to get out more.)
@Steeplejack: I, too, would be delighted to get a late-late/early-early snack. I am hungry! I woke up out of a sound sleep, got my computer and found that the site had just gone down. I must have felt the disturbance in the force. Going back to bed.
It’s snark aimed at the controversial Peloton ad. The woman in the middle is almost a ringer for the Peloton woman.
Ryan Reynolds’s other Aviation Gin commercial.
@NotMax: Imagine whirled peas.
I woke up and realized I have to get the credit card bill out tomorrow (well, today, now) or it’s not going to make it on time. So I’m up doing that before trying to get back to bed.
That is an ugly, ugly car. My 9-year-old watches a number of YouTubers and one of them, barely 21 years old, owns a Lamborghini. Just as Robin Williams said of cocaine, Lamborghinis are also God’s way of telling a person they have too much money.
@Steeplejack: Somebody had to say it, and I was just the guy.
AFTER clicking your link and watching the controversial ad AND then re-watching the original gin commercial, which now made a lot more sense, and AFTER googling Ryan Reynolds to see what his connection to the gin is, and AFTER reading an article, I discovered that the woman in the middle isn’t a ringer for the original woman from the exercise bike commercial. He actually got the original woman to be in his commercial. I see why you guys like RR so much.
And yes, I really do need to get out more.
Back to bed for real. ‘Night, night owls.
My 3½-year-old nephew has been in a long phase of car and truck mania. Always has at least one toy car in his hands, and he practically squee’d himself senseless when he found that his Halloween costume was a Lightning McQueen suit. (One of the aunties got him that.) At Thanksgiving, when they were going around the table saying what they were thankful for, he said: “I’m thankful for . . . cars.” Of course.
@WaterGirl: I’m an early bird, but I never get the worm for some reason or other.
Since I’m already up, I figure I’ll hit the grocery very early, come home and go into bunker mode for the weekend.
I thought I did it all yesterday, but I outsmarted myself and went to Trader Joe’s, which doesn’t carry some things I need (and forgot about). Grr.
In positive food news, a guy told me yesterday that a “super” Giant (aspiring to Wegmans status) is going in the space where my longtime grocery closed in August. Supposed to open in mid-February.
I have been surprised at how much the closing of the old one has disrupted my schedule. There are other groceries around, but I still have trouble getting the hang of them, and the old one (Shoppers) was pretty nice.
@Steeplejack: the thread is hilarious. I’m pretty sure it is the same chick. Someone bitching about it (the gin commercial) was a non union commercial and that she was a scab.
You have to drink the tequila first. (Somebody had to say it.)
I think I woke up every hour on the hour last night. Finally gave up and just got up at 4:30 anyway. Dogs have been out, coffee made, now hoping I don’t doze back off because I have to be at the market in an hour and a half. Very thick frost outside too, have to warm up the car before I go.
@Steeplejack: they’re so adorable at that age.
@WaterGirl: “A year ago I never know how much this gin would change my life”
I was awake in bed for a long time before getting up. Cycled through reading on the phone, trying to go back to sleep and reviewing past life mistakes and dwindling future prospects. Oof. Better to get up and do it with coffee and a nosh. Plus the housecat is dozing at her workstation and accepting skritches.
@OzarkHillbilly: early morning, candlelight (outside dawn light on the porch in summer), fresh coffee… My favorite time of the day. Quiet, peaceful and yet spent with my online friends where we can greet each other and chat.
@Steeplejack: Someday, I’ll tell you about Tequila Night.
@satby: In other words, an OzarkHillbilly night.
@Steeplejack: yeah, sometimes better to just get up and interrupt the non-productive rumination. And a Saturday nap can be pleasant too (as long as it isn’t so late you’re awake the next night ?.)
Nap time is good time!
I didn’t get one yesterday, which is probably why I flaked out at 8:00. Usually an hour or so in the afternoon sets me up for a late evening.
@satby: I love the early AM hours. It’s why I continue to get up at 3:30 long after I no longer have an hour and half commute.
That’s adorable! When my kid was in kindergarten, the class did a little audio and picture presentation of things they were thankful for around Thanksgiving. The other kids said they were thankful for their family, their mom, etc. Very sweet and moving. Mine said he was thankful for ankylosaurus.
The other big moment in my nephew’s life was last summer when the family was taking the car ferry from Rehoboth Beach to Cape May. He perked up as they approached the ferry port—all the cars and trucks! Then he saw the big boat! Then he saw the cars and trucks were going on the boat! In the boat! And then the trip with all the boat noises. Epic.
In all honesty though, I was a bit older than he the first time I saw a car ferry and my mind was blown, too. A car on a boat? What magic is this?
What kind of rich idiot has not picked up the anti Semitisim of some of Trump’s supporters? It’s dangerous for Jews to associate with Trump. It’s dangerous for Jews for Trump to exist actually.
i also think it is idiotic for Israel to have supported the GOP. There is going to be blowback.
wow. Thanks for searching all that out. Now I too am super impressed by RR. I love the first Aviation Gin ad, as well.
and excellent job on the site rebuild!
Not a ringer. It’s her. It’s the desperate to please look in her eyes that confirms this. (“Will I prove myself worthy of this bike in the eyes of my husband?”) //
Bibi and tRUMPS portraits belong on a felonwagon. Bibi and tRUMP belong in afelonwagon
@Mary G: So weird to read his letter. I’m almost positive I know the class (& teacher) he had at BHS. Thanks for sharing!
@Gvg: Yes, to both.
“Giant” as in Giant Foods of Landover MD? Owned by a Dutch company named Ahold that’s run by a bunch of a-holes?
If so, do not trust them father than you can throw the store. Once in a not-so-super Giant I stumbled onto a situation where they’d completely fucked up the unit pricing labels. And those labels came directly from the geenyusses in Landover, so those prices were wrong in every one of their stores.
@Steeplejack: You captured it perfectly! Poor guy, though, the peek of his life at 3 years old. :-) I mean, seriously, can it get better than that???
Will trust but verify.
I’m sure he’ll have more. The family is already dreading when he gets old enough to drive.

I tried it, and liked it. But it seemed expensive for what I got. I also like Nolens Dutch Gin, Hendricks, and most recently a Japanese Gin called Roku, made by Suntory. Much less expensive than Aviation Gin, so now my go to at the spirits store.
Quiet part out loud.tRump outs himself as a busted flush.
@J R in WV:
I was joking. I didn’t even know Aviation was a real brand! I’ve been drinking Hendrick’s for a while. I’ll check out Roku.
How does an “insurance adjuster” afford a Lambo? I work in insurance. I know what they make. Trust me, it’s not Lambo money.

@pluky: He’s covered his car with giant photos of two financial criminals, so I’m assuming they’re his role models.
@WaterGirl: if you want some more fun the Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman “feud/prank war” is pretty good.
it’s up there with the Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel “feud”.
Guy on the right should be Putin.
