She Done Told It on the Mountain, She Did


Today’s post will be short and spicy and, in a rare example, I can claim relative innocence in the words being shared. Partner sent me a video, and I would be remiss if I didn’t pass on the humor baton. This is comedienne Rita Brent, with her take on an already-infamous event that transpired in Washington this week. Enjoy.



Note: Yes, I realize the number of Trump dings has been higher than normal during the past few weeks at Bonnywood. But, for the first time in a long while, I sense the tide is finally, strongly turning against the tyrant. And I would be remiss if I didn’t do my wee little part to help wash our shores clean of a national disgrace.


P.S. The photo is a snap I took of a painting in the men’s room at Miguel’s Mex Tex Café in Abilene, Texas. The image of a chicken (bone spurs!) holding a chicken, and the setting where I found it, just felt right for Rita’s message. And mine.

    • Did you happen to catch how Rita, in the first part of the video, did the “air quotes” finger thing while still holding her hands in the prayer position? I was enraptured from that point forward…

      • Thank you for visiting Brian. Glad to hear you will be visiting my site. I am in the process of updating some of my posts and generally reshuffling things alongside word press deficiencies in adapting to my change of site & domain name in spite of confirming with them what I have done and paid for.
        Nonetheless I will keep on keeping on 🙂

  1. I’m sure you realize how much I appreciate this, right? I swear, I was so damned offended by the whole spectacle… You heard the Episcopal bishop comment on it, yes? She was glorious.

    What’s weird is that I haven’t heard anyone point out that the version he’s holding hasn’t been in common use for over 30 years. And from the binding, it looks like the one mainline Protestant churches gave to Sunday School kids — in other words, like the one I have on my shelf. And you know what? Unlike Trump, I actually read it.

    • Yes, I knew you would appreciate it, and I am right there with you on the offensiveness of it all. It is/was an outrage and, although I really don’t have any credentials to speak on the matter, I think anyone who WASN’T offended by this blatant ploy needs to do some soul searching, especially if they claim to be a Christian. Harsh, maybe. But I’m sticking to it.

      As for the Bible prop, there are rumors (not fully vetted) that Ivanka is the one who provided the Bible. (What IS vetted? She was one of the “advisors” who came up with the stunt in the first place.) If she did provide the Bible, I would imagine she snatched it out of the Presidential Library and not off her nightstand…
