Although there are days when I wake up and I KNOW, even before turning on my phone or the TV or the laptop, that today’s shit is going to be fucktons worse than yesterday’s.
Here’s a thing that was all over the papers this week, in my part of the world:
The president of the Philippines talked about Donald Trump in the most glowing of terms.
Or at least he would have, if the idiot (Duterte being the bigger idiot in this case) hadn’t said the following things:
I admire Trump because he has a hot wife.
Which completely ignores the whole heartbreaking — yes, I’m going to use that word — thing about Melania being trapped, Melania being the First Victim, Melania being the first prisoner of the Trump regime. But what does Duterte care for the woman, right? He only cares that she looks hot. He does not give a flying fuck about her as a person. I doubt he sees her as a person.
Trump and I are the same. We are “gago”.
THAT IS NOWHERE NEAR A GOOD THING. THAT IS NOWHERE NEAR A POSITIVE ADJECTIVE. DO NOT NORMALIZE “GAGO” AS A GOOD THING.
Okay. So. I will tell you about the uses of the word “gago” in Tagalog, one of the major languages in the Philippines.
“Gago” is what you call the asshole who cut you off at the intersection.
“Gago” is what you call the car that nearly ran you down while you were crossing the street.
“Gago” is what you call the catcaller and harasser.
“Gago” is what you call the salesman who did not give you correct change until you asked for it.
“Gago” is what you call the guy who broke the law.
“Gago” is what you call the guy who pissed you off.
“GAGO” IS NOT A THING TO ASPIRE TO.
But hey, in this case, I have to very reluctantly agree with Duterte. He and Trump are fully deserving of every odious adjective in the dictionary, and then some. They are complete and total asshole bastards that hell would not even dare to claim as their own.
I hate to agree with that asshole whom I did not vote into the presidency, but in this case I have to, because he’s holding up a mirror to himself in order to proclaim his “coolness” to the world, but then again — he’s showing off how much of a fucking dunce he — and his “idol” — is.
