Shoulda Been MiloDecember 23, 2016 Tim WorstallPolitics29 CommentsDonald Trump announces Sean Spicer as his new press secretary previousThey will be sharing it all with the workers, won’t they?nextWell done Spud, well done 29 thoughts on “Shoulda Been Milo” abacab December 23, 2016 at 9:58 am Would have been funny. I can just imaine him saying to some lefty (male) journo “Now, listen here sweetie, it’s like this….” And watch their paroxysms of difficulty in dealing with him. Mr Ecks December 23, 2016 at 10:08 am It would have been like Frankie Howard with politics. Dan December 23, 2016 at 10:24 am ““Today we bombed another third-world shithole. Also, how’s my hair?” Lockers December 23, 2016 at 10:42 am Christopher Hitchens reincarnated (kinda, sorta). When he’s got himself under control he’s exceptionally effective. The Inimitable Steve December 23, 2016 at 11:40 am I love Milo, but he’s our magnificent homosexual. The Yanks can get their own. Though I won’t object if they want Owen Jones. Rob December 23, 2016 at 11:42 am Milo and Owen Jones? Cavalier and Roundhead. Jonathan December 23, 2016 at 11:54 am Unfortunately, Milo’s a Brit but Ann Coulter would have been a excellent choice. The media would be: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/da/Scanners_head_explode_screenshot.jpg The Inimitable Steve December 23, 2016 at 11:55 am Rob – Owny always puts me in mind of John Hurt’s portrayal of Richard Rich in A Man For All Seasons. Dan December 23, 2016 at 12:16 pm TIS, Yes, but the Septics do like their uber camp flaming gay men to have a British accent. Class up the joint a bit. bilbaoboy December 23, 2016 at 12:40 pm I’m a great fan of Milo but his crusade needs him not to be tied down with the minutae of gubermint. Get a pro for that (as Trumpy seems to have done) and Milo can carry on his dangerous faggot head-exploding mission. Pogo December 23, 2016 at 12:42 pm @Rob – December 23, 2016 at 11:42 am Milo and Owen Jones? Cavalier and RoundDickhead. bilbaoboy December 23, 2016 at 12:43 pm Exporting Owen? Would be a great Christmas present. But really, the States? I think certain areas of the Middle East would be far better destinations. He could try getting some of them to cross to his side of the road and see how that works out. And if that is too risqué, then we will always have Venezuela. Rob December 23, 2016 at 12:54 pm Yes, Venezuela. We need Owen appointed as spokesman for food shortages. He would have to tour the country, meeting citizens at supermarkets and explain why socialism has left the shelves empty. He might even make it to the end of the first week if he is good. Gamecock December 23, 2016 at 1:04 pm ‘The RNC’s chief strategist will have his work cut out for him spinning for the unpredictable Trump’ “He has no chance; the Trump Administration is DOA.” That’s what they mean. And Salon will do all it can to help that eventuality. Fourth estate, freedom of the press, yada, yada, yada. Andrew M December 23, 2016 at 1:05 pm Has Owen ever been to Venezuela? Perhaps we could crowdfund him a ticket. Frankly, that’s the kind of reality TV car crash Guardian journalism for which I’d pay good money. Custard Cream December 23, 2016 at 1:11 pm Pity. It would have been fabulous. magnusw December 23, 2016 at 1:23 pm Andrew, we should just appeal to Theresa to make him ambassador to the Bolivarian Republic. Seamus can go to Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. They can report back in 4 years on their findings, until then we don’t want to hear from them. The Inimitable Steve December 23, 2016 at 1:30 pm Dan – it’s comforting to know that in these troubled times Britain still produces the world’s best gays. We’ve got Milo, Elton John, George Michael, never-had-a-girlfriend Mancunian warbler Morrissey, and Sir Ian McKellen. The Yanks have… Obama. Gamecock – “He has no chance; the Trump Administration is DOA.” That’s what they mean. And Salon will do all it can to help that eventuality. The press is like that hysterical SJW badgering Ivanka and her kids on a flight the other day. I don’t think it’ll end well for them. Theophrastus December 23, 2016 at 1:46 pm The US Military could have Owen Jones — for target practice. Gamecock December 23, 2016 at 2:46 pm ‘I don’t think it’ll end well for them.’ I think they are angry because the end HAS COME. My theory is that the left is driven by . . . wait for it . . . Loneliness. The Leftist government is their companion and family. The Trump victory, Brexit, et al, represent the disbanding of their family, and they are devastated, as devastated as losing a spouse. Hedgehog December 23, 2016 at 2:48 pm TIS: The Yanks have… Obama. Wait a sec. Are you insinuating that the man who wears mom jeans and throws like a girl might be a little light in his loafers? http://www.bubbletoonz.com/s/7o Say it ain’t so. Martin December 23, 2016 at 6:17 pm Should have gone for Comical Ali, known to the Yanks as Baghdad Bob. The former Iraqui information minister. Very good at his job. The Inimitable Steve December 23, 2016 at 7:23 pm Gamecock – I think you’re on to something. Politics isn’t just another part of life to progressives, like sport or business or pigeon fancying. It’s deeply personal and all-encompassing, more like a religious faith. Hedgehog – Obama is definitely a power bottom. 123 December 23, 2016 at 7:54 pm I had absolutely no idea that Obama liked it up the wrong ‘un. How did I miss that? Pcar December 23, 2016 at 8:24 pm ^^^ I tried counting to 10 before replying. Unable to type an acceptable reply. A clue: google: Joan Rivers obama Rob December 24, 2016 at 12:19 am Milo talks too fast. He needs to take a deep breath and think for a bit. Just because someone asks you a question doesn’t mean you have to give an immediate 1000 word answer. Rob December 24, 2016 at 12:21 am Anyway, Trump supporter condemned for saying things about Obama, had an Obama supporter said them about Trump everyone would have shrugged: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-38423942 Double standards, doubled. Bloke in Costa Rica December 24, 2016 at 3:27 am Steve: People like Laurie Penny and the Ivanka-bothering feygele the other day are the Marxist equivalent of trainspotters. Their inability to see anything except through the lens of progressive wankery is positively autistic. They have no hinterland. It must be fucking exhausting in Lefty-land. The Nazis had this idea of Gleichschaltung, where ideology permeated every nook and cranny of life like a fumigant. They were fucking weird, too. Normal people can switch off the politics. SJWs can’t. Gamecock December 24, 2016 at 6:49 pm It appears to me that Trump is picking patriots, people who want to help the country, and not ambitious politicians looking to get their ticket punched. I think Trump likes Milo, but I suspect he thinks Milo is too involved with his agenda. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
