‘Boner’ Sound Bite Of The Day

March 31, 2022

Near noon Thursday here in California’s Central Valley — another brown-cloud day as we spin the last day of March from a quickening 2022 calendar, a fourth of the once-labeled ‘new year’ about gone already with the approach of the appropriately tagged April Fool’s Day tomorrow.
Of course, don’t be an optimist as way-more ugly shit is scheduled — sorry for the worry.

Our state of play — dufus downward dig:

Idiot. The ‘burner phones’ motif has picked up the pace for setting T-Rump on a possible road to a jail cell.
A little, quick history of the ‘burner’ via the BBC yesterday and the criminal activity unheard:

This raises the question of how the president was communicating with those at the scene of the riot.
Did he borrow an aide’s mobile device?
Or was he, perhaps, using a “burner phone” — slang for low-cost, low-feature pay-as-you-go mobile phones that can be purchased without providing the kind of contact details necessary when signing a traditional wireless contract.

In a statement to the Washington Post, Mr Trump said that he had never heard of the term “burner phone” and had no idea what it was.
His assertion was quickly contradicted by John Bolton, the president’s former national security advisor, who told CBS News that he and Mr Trump had spoken in the past of how burner phones could allow people to avoid having their calls scrutinised.

Because of the anonymity they provide, these phones — sold in the US by companies like Tracfone and Alcatel — have become popular among criminal elements and spouses seeking illicit love.

According to the Mirriam-Webster dictionary website, the term “burner” as a word for disposable phones first began appearing in US popular culture in the mid-90s.
It cites the lyrics from rapper Kingpin Skinny Pimp in One Life 2 Live: “Talkin’ on the burner phone, bumpin’ hutch.”
The slang first entered the mainstream American lexicon in the early 2000s, however, upon repeated usage in the HBO crime drama The Wire. The main characters disposed of their burner phones whenever they feared law enforcement was on their trail.

This isn’t the first time the subject of unofficial phones has come up in connection with the former president.
A 2018 New York Times story reported that the president frequently used as many as three iPhones to place calls to friends and aides — one of which was a personal device not secured by the US government.
“Mr. Trump typically relies on his cellphones when he does not want a call going through the White House switchboard and logged for senior aides to see,” the New York Times reported.
“Many of those Mr. Trump speaks with most often on one of his cellphones, such as hosts at Fox News, share the president’s political views, or simply enable his sense of grievance about any number of subjects.”

The president, at the time, denied the story, calling it “soooo wrong.”

The congressional committee investigating the 6 January Capitol attack has requested mobile phone records.

So, it’s a no boner T-Rump is a cruel, criminal schmuck.

Dude, ‘soooo wrong’ with my phone, just setin’ up a meetin’ at the Capitol:

Even being the day before fool’s day, once again here we are…
