No laughing matter: Trump’s speech threatens world order and peace | Asia Times


When US President Donald Trump began his speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, laughter erupted from the hall. “In less than two years,” Trump said, “my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the entire history of our country.” There was a pause. Then Trump continued, “America’s – so true” – but he was interrupted by laughter.

Not laughter at a joke that Trump had cracked. Nothing like that. The laughter was directed at him. “Didn’t expect that reaction,” Trump said, “but that’s OK.” There was more laughter, even raucous laughter.

Lost Vice Guy WINS Britain’s Got Talent 2018


Well done to Lost Voice Guy and wish him well when he performs at the Royal Variety Performance later this year.

I also say well done to the runner up Robert White.

Same Difference

Same Difference is thrilled to report that one of our editor’s favourite DisAbled comedians, Lost Voice Guy (Lee Ridley) has just won Britain’s Got Talent 2018.

This us the moment we have been wishing for for the last two months, ever since we heard he was on the show. But, he’s not a singer, and everyone knows singers usually win BGT- unless dancers are lucky- so we didn’t dare to hope it might actually happen!!

Yet happen it has. Here’s his winning routine:

And here’s his winner’s speech- with a joke thrown in, of course:

Same Difference wouldn’t be Same Difference unless we also gave a shout out and sincere well done to the runner up, Robert White, who has Asperger’s. Here is his final routine:

WH correspondent & cronies: ‘Native Indians’ should ‘go back to your country’


Over at our favorite website for classy headlines and snarky stories, Wonkette, there’s a fall-flat-on-your-face article about a twitter exchange that begins with a post by White House correspondent Lucian Wintrich, who writes for the right-wing conspiracy blog The Gateway Pundit. Seems Mr. Wintrich was none too pleased with a photo of three Native Americans flipping off Mount Rushmore. Below is the photo with his response:

Boris Johnson floats idea of new Royal Yacht Britannia : i NEWS.


While at first glance this appears to be another hare-brained idea and certainly would be if Government (taxpayers) money was to be used both for its initial purchase and then for its sustainability (running costs).

However, if money was forthcoming from the businesses that would benefit from an increase in trade, then that could be a different matter.

However, as that would be extremely unlikely to occur I therefore concur with the previous comments that it will be a waste of money and another foolish and expensive idea from the Boris, as it would be dead in the water, like a lead balloon. However, it could be crewed by the Cabinet and they could go down with the Yacht, although there are less expensive ways to be Cabinet rid.
