So, (as every utterance begins these days) let’s speak about the word ‘cunt’.

My contention has forever been that in the larder of offensive words, it would be the very last one to escape into common usage en Amérique.  (Exempted from this notion is the UK, as I’m assured the word is out and about routinely.)  I’ve held fast to this belief even in the Trump Era.

This past week, television personality Samantha Bee was criticized for calling Ivanka Trump a ‘feckless cunt’.  This calling Ivanka Trump a ‘feckless cunt’ was compared to actress Rosanne Barr’s suggestion that Valerie Jarrett, former senior advisor to Barack Obama, was the offspring of a monkey, which is the oldest insult in the book for a black person.

These characterizations are not coequal, since Ivanka Trump IS a feckless cunt, as is her father.

Here is a modest proposal.

Because of his fondness for the Росси́йская Федерaция, I would like to see he and his family — three sons, two daughters, and eight grandchildren — retire there at the end of his presidency, to all live a life of luxury to the end of their days.

There would, of course, be conditions.  1) Spouses would remain behind in the US, even Jared Kushner, even though he is also a feckless cunt.  2) The luxury accommodations in Russia would be a high security cloister with no visitors whatsoever.

This, of course, might mean that the Trump gene pool would eventually draw to a close.  But, no.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way:

“If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
