It's Weet-Bix, and Trump's not into "fixing".  "Stitching up" is more his style.

 

 

 

 

stitch (stÄ­ch)n.

 

 

1.

 

a. A single complete movement of a threaded needle in sewing or surgical suturing: made multiple stitches.

 

b. A single loop of thread or yarn made with an implement such as a sewing or knitting needle.

 

c. A single loop or knot of thread used in closing a wound or incision in surgery; a suture.

 

d. A way of arranging the threads in sewing, knitting, crocheting, or suturing: used a purl stitch.

 

 

2. A sudden sharp pain, especially in the side. See Synonyms for pain.

 

3. Informal An article of clothing: wore not a stitch.

 

4. Informal The least part; a bit: didn't do a stitch of work.

 

 

v. stitched, stitch·ing, stitch·es

 

v.tr.

 

1.

 

a. To fasten or join with stitches.

 

b. To mend or repair with stitches: stitched up the tear.

 

 

2. To decorate or ornament, as with stitches: "The sky was stitched with stars" (Mario Puzo).

 

3. To fasten together with staples or thread.

 

 

 

 

Hmmm... the verb form looks like "fixing" to me, Mr. Wheat Bix

Stitch up

 

A set up, a trick. If someone stitches you up, then they're playing you for a fool. It's often used when framing someone for a crime.

I don't think there is ever a bad time to talk about how absurd war is, how old men make decisions and young people die. - George Clooney

I have a cupboard full of popcorn... It might last the inauguration, but there's no way it'll go 4 years tongue-out

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And this explains what Jimson Weed is on, and should probably take less of. wink

Oh come on, it's DEMOCRACY. He won; he can do anything! Winner takes all. All hail the totally facile, uninformed, philosophically bankrupt notion of democracy favoured by the Trump supporters and apologists.

It's quite comical reading the dire predictions in the event of a Trump win. You can certainly see who gets their opinions issued to them by the morally corrupt MSM.

 

 

 

The USA certainly dodged a bullet on election night.

Can you give any examples of this moral corruption you speak of?

MSNBC, CNN, Huffington Post, Washington Post, New York Times... where does it end?
