The Pope Meeting The Trumps is All Of Us

This international tour that Cantaloupe Caillou is on will not stop providing moments of memes. It will not stop reminding us that we (well, yall. I know who I voted for) have elected Sunburned Stalin to represent us all on the global stage and it is the biggest mistake ever in life.

Today’s latest is the Trumps’ trip to the Vatican, to meet Pope Francis. This Pontiff, who is historic, for rising through the Catholic church after growing up poor, in the streets of Argentina, had to spend time with Tropicana Mussolini and his Addams Family. This is a Pope who just gave a TED talk on how people in power need to use it to serve the poor (watch it. It’s really good).

The picture taken there speaks 1,000 words. Let’s talk about it.

Pope Francis looking like he’s thinking “Apocalypse now.”

First of all, the color scheme here is like villains versus angels. It’s just too easy. The Trumps are dressed in all black like omens of death, destruction and famine. Yes, that might be the dress code but the looks on their faces plus their general evilness really creates a narrative of the plague. Meanwhile the Pope is looking like he’s just there so he doesn’t get fined, and so he can report back to Jesus that Satan indeed has mentees on this Earth and he is asking for extra help from some Saint Michael. This vanquishing won’t be easy but it must be done.

Jared Kushner always looks like he ended up in the wrong room and he just wants to back out to not interrupt the meeting. Dude takes the blank stare to levels yet unseen, and the way his douchebro-ness is set up, I feel like he’s always planning his next kegger with his boys in his head.

But to his left, I’m wondering why didn’t anyone tell Ivanka and Melania that the funeral for their souls is NEXT WEEK, not today? Not only are they dressed like they’re in bereavement, in these jet black “TAKE ME NOW NOT HIM” ensembles but the looks on their faces say: GRIEF. Ivanka’s Darth Miss Anne ass also has on some Black veil like she’s the Bride of Frankenstein and right after this meeting, she gotta go say “I DO” to Beezlebub. I. DO. NOT. LIKE. HER. ASS. That woman is Damsel in Distress in the flesh and does not catch enough flack for her role as her father’s pretty prop. Watch her make this a part of her next clothing line.

Tacky and I Hate You gif

You already know Melania is in her head hating everything about her life at any given moment (read: Melania Trump is Still Wack But Her Hand Holding Block Game is Strong). The woman’s default look is Resting Regret Face. They both have their heads covered here but the place that this woulda also been appropriate was in Saudi Arabia, a majority Muslim country where women cover their heads with hijabs. But I can’t expect White Privilege Barbie 1 and 2 to do things that make sense and are culturally sensitive.

We then have the nincompoop in chief is standing there, smiling harder than the rabbit when it finally gets some Trix. He is the only person in this picture who is even remotely happy, and that’s because I’m sure he’s standing there with Enya music playing in his head, with his utterly dumb ass. All that empty space in that giant head attached to a giant body with tiny hands. Looking like God made him from spare parts. The ONLY one in this picture who looks like they wouldn’t jump off a cliff if given the chance at any moment.

And we land on the Pope, who looks like he’s thinking “y’all don’t pay me enough for this.” He looks like the joy got sucked out of him the moment he stepped into a room with the Nacho Nazi. This is a man who is committed to loving his neighbor, his enemies and the person who created the Snuggie. And even he isn’t smiling in this picture. HOW DO YOU MANAGE TO MAKE THE POPE RESENT YOU? Be the man who hates everyone who isn’t rich, male and white AF.

I feel like we owe the Pope an apology for that, because who did HE have to Confess to afterwards? Surely, his thoughts couldn’t stay positive when standing next to Orange Foolius. He’s probably like: “Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. I wanted to choke that man and watch him go from orange to red. I have never felt such rage in my spirit and it took me by surprise. I know you ain’t done with me yet but this was a set back in my spiritual journey. I will do better but please don’t let me have to deal with him again. I am your humble servant but the flesh is weak and that man is stupid. I confess.”

But yeah. The Pope is all of us, y’all. That look on his face. He gets it. He feels it.

    One note – Catholics DO do head coverings but not this shit. Usually only in certain churches and places in the world but yep, it is a thing. The fact that they would cover their heads there but not for other religions/customs/places is Allllllllll the more ignorant.

    The black bridal veil is giving me second hand embarrassment worse than all of middle and high school combined.

      Women who have an audience with the pope are supposed to wear black, be modestly dressed, and have their heads covered by a veil. They are appropriately dressed. Even if ivanka’ veil is pretty ridiculous.

      • Colleen
        May 24, 2017 at 4:16 pm

        That is ridiculous. The only dress code when visiting the pope is what would be “work apppropriate”—-covered shoulders, no short skirts. Google it!

      • Jeannie
        May 24, 2017 at 7:41 pm

        That’s incorrect. I have had an audience with the Pope. Modest dress, no mini skirts or shorts (WHO would wearshorts?!) and coveted shoulders. That is the extent of the “Meet the Pope Dress Code.” And we Catholic women stopped covering our heads at around half past Jackie Kennedy.

        Actually you’re all kind of right. Traditionally all visitors had to wear black, the modest clothes, covered shoulders, veil, etc., but the Pope relaxed that rule quite a bit. However, the president and his family tend to fall towards tradition on official visits. Michelle Obama also wore a black dress and veil when she met Pope Francis in 2009. However, the outfit and veil she wore were tasteful and appropriate, not Sicilian Funeral and Goth Bride Barbie.

      No we don’t. I’ve been in audiences with bishops, cardinals and Pope JPII. We stopped covering our heads after the Second Vatican Council.

  2. May 24, 2017 at 8:07 am

    “Again, why do they both have their heads covered? They aren’t nuns and Catholics don’t do head coverings.”

    not entirely correct. look up the pix of when cokie roberts’ mom [i can’t remember her name at the moment] was ambassador to the vatican. you’re going to see newt gingrich’s wife similarly attired soon. yes, the wife of newt gingrich is going to be ambassador to the vatican. that can be a whole other post.

    “Besides, the place that this woulda been more appropriate was in Saudi Arabia, a majority Muslim country where women cover their heads with hijabs. But I can’t expect White Privilege Barbie 1 and 2 to do things that make sense and are culturally sensitive.”

    no argument there. btw, you don’t need a hijab to cover. any kind of head covering will do; there’s a british tv presenter who often wears ski caps when out in the field and i am here for that, because most people don’t get that to cover your hair, you can literally use *anything*…. speaking of which, ultra-orthodox jewish women often wear wigs. it’s not *their* hair, so….

    but basically, they covered for the pope and not for the saudi king — both of whom have a similar title in the small print of their list of titles — because of, well, #whiteness. they respect the pope’s whiteness and his catholicism. they don’t respect the saudis’ not-white-enough-ness.

    • May 24, 2017 at 8:41 am

      Fixed that!

    • Andrea Karim
      May 24, 2017 at 12:38 pm

      Nope. Two things: the Saudi kind does NOT hold a position similar to the Pope in Islam. Sure, he might govern the country (as a dictator) in which the most prominent of Sunni shrines are housed, but that does not give him religious authority in the same vein as the Pope.

      Also, Michelle Obama didn’t wear hijab in Saudi Arabia. Neither did Angela Merckel. It has become increasingly common for female diplomats visiting that nation to NOT adhere to their ridiculous insistence that everyone dress like them because, hey, they have Mecca. This isn’t about white privilege (for once).

      That said, yeah, the Trumps look like raging idiots.

        What? Have you been to Saudi?

        If you are a non-muslim foreigner you do not need to wear a hijab, unless you go to certain places, like a mosque. Legally, you do not have to. However, it is very rare to see a woman without one (children usually don’t wear it), so you are likely to get some negative attention if you choose to. I have many family members living in Saudi Arabia, and more friends. A couple of them are foreigners and non-muslim. They choose not to wear the hijab, but most choose to. Jeddah one will find is more relaxed about well… everything. Other cities, like Riyadh, are more conservative.

        Basically, if you choose to stand out you will get looks outside of Riyadh, but it’s not illegal.

        • Andrea Karim
          May 24, 2017 at 7:32 pm

          I have not been to Saudi Arabia, and have no intention to go. But you’re right, the head covering is only required in Riyadh. Abayas, however, are required everywhere for all women.

          Anyway, my point was that Melania not wearing hijab wasn’t about white privilege, and that the Saudi king is not a Muslim religious leader in the same vein as the Pope for Catholics.

    • May 28, 2017 at 1:18 pm

      I heard on CNN news a few days ago that it is no longer required to wear a head covering when foreign dignitaries visit. I have to believe the catholic woman Jeannie. Since she is catholic I think she qualifies to bring clarity to the situation.

      • May 28, 2017 at 1:30 pm

        Ms Trump’s communications director Stephanie Grisham, said there was no request from Saudi Arabia for Ms Trump to wear a head covering.
        However, it should be noted that Ms Trump would have been required to wear a head covering, and remove her shoes had she visited any mosques or Muslim holy sites.
        My immediate reaction when I saw how the First Lady, and Ivanka were dressed, it appears as if they are at a funeral.

  3. a
    May 24, 2017 at 8:08 am

    It is apparently protocol for women to wear black and head coverings for private audiences with the Pope. I guess we can assume that women who have not done so are not having private meetings. If I remember correctly, even Michelle Obama covered her fabulous arms and wore a veil. But I would say some disgruntled person provided these two with their head coverings – there are far more flattering options out there.

    I find it very interesting that the Barbies have their heads covered. It used to be the rule that women cover their heads when receiving mass. That rule changed 30 years ago but I still see old school Catholic women do it for funerals and major holidays. Devout Catholics who have gone to the Vatican will voluntarily cover their heads. All visitors must have their knees and shoulders covered; no tank tops and shorts – even if you’re a tourist!

    It says to me that underneath it all, the Barbies are Catholic. Ivanka’s conversion to Orthodox Judaism? Pffffft! I howled when I learned that last week. She does nothing to show she is and this outfit just screams Catholic to me.

    • May 24, 2017 at 2:47 pm

      Technically, wearing black dresses AND a mantilla is still Vatican protocol for meeting the Pope.

      But still.

      The whole Corpse Bride veil isn’t what I was thinking when I read mantilla. And the fact that they will bow to this tradition – one that, ironically, Pope Francis is trying to change, but not wear the headscarves is what I find bizarre.

    • Daniel
      May 26, 2017 at 4:20 pm

      The rabbi that supervised Ivanka’s “conversion” to Judaism has had his own conversion disputed by the Israeli Rabbinical Court. Ivanka and Jared flew to the Middle East on a Saturday, despite not having obtained dispensation from any religious authority.

      Jewish, my ass. Ivanka is a shiksa, through and through.

    • Andrea Karim
      May 24, 2017 at 12:44 pm

      It’s actually traditional. You can read about it here (honestly, it’s so weird and I never knew about it): http://www.telegraph.co.uk/fashion/people/melania-ivanka-trump-stuck-traditional-vatican-dress-codes-meeting/

      I can’t stand the Trumps, but I assume that this was politically calculated. The Saudis are getting used to public visits from foreign women who will not cover their heads, but the Saudis love Trump because they are all the same kind of kleptocrats. The Pope, on the other hand, can’t stand Trump and so he’s probably hoping he can make the Pope at least like his women.

    Chapel veils or “mantillas” (Spanish) used to be a thing back in the day when folk used to follow Catholic traditions.They were generally LACE, not that crazy net gizmo Ivankerina is wearing. Now that ppl are seen in any/everything at church, I’m sure there’re rarely seen in U.S. Catholic churches today. 1 pic = 1 mil words…

    Hilarious post but….the Vatican specifically asks that for private meetings with the Pope, both men and women wear black, and women must wear veils. (Also see FLOTUS Michelle Obama in 2009) I think the difference between Saudi and the Vatican is that no one specifically asks you to cover your head in Saudi and the Vatican wouldn’t have allowed the group to see the Pope if they weren’t dressed as requested.

    Did I just…. defend this group? Or lord forgive me..

    • May 24, 2017 at 8:40 am

  14. May 24, 2017 at 8:27 am

    Ok, I have questions:
    1. Why are Ivanka and Melania dressed like my Sicilian great-grandmother and her sister, Mattia? Are they putting a curse on someone with those veils or is it bad Sister Act cosplay?

    2. What is going on with Jared’s hair? It looks like a misplaced Ash Wednesday smudge. Is that a shadow? Is it a cowlick? Is it Satan peeking out to say hi-dee-ho?

    3. How much sanctified wine do you think His Holiness had to drink after this meet-and-greet?

    The fact that they word it here and not in Saudi is a blatant insult.

    Finally, notice how the Pope is standing apart from these folks? He’s hoping he won’t catch fire when thoe fuckers burst into flame.

    I am loving how my Catholic conservative friends are going nuts over this. They can’t reconcile this and they are choking on speaking against the Holy Father.

    Actually, Black USED TO BE protocol, but the new Pope relaxed those conventions in 2013. “For the Papal Audience casual but modest dress is accepted, again ladies should still have shoulders covered particularly if the meeting is held indoors.”

    These folks were WAY extra, but they’re always performing, so I’m not surprised.

    I thought my day was going down the “it sucks” path but you just gave me life. These people are the crud beneath the Barrel and the Pope was praying for Jesus to take the wheel on his mouth so he didn’t tell them about their raggedy, soulless, greedy, master race behinds.

    Melania is living the, “A golden cage is still a cage” and regretting it.

    Her public attitude w Donnie is just her way of confirming he’s not fit for orifice.

    • May 27, 2017 at 3:21 pm

      I looked it up. According to the Vatican museum site, that painting is not usually there. It shows the Roman soldiers at Jesus’ tomb who slept on while he rose up. Only one soldier noticed. I guess even Jesus had to get up out of there when P-45 showed up.

    Supposedly they were specifically asked to put mantillas on. I will note that Ivanka covered her head at the Western Wall, but did so as minimally as she could get away with–a hat so small it required an elastic band to stay on. Melania did not.

    The wearing of the all black formal attire and veil is required when having a private meeting with the Pope. Non-Muslim women going to Saudi Arabia are not required to cover their heads. As much as I HATE this whole family, I have to acknowledge that with the exception of that bridal veil Ivanka was wearing, the women were appropriately dressed as per the requirements for an audience with the Pope. Even Michele wore a black dress that covered her arms, went to her calves and a veil when she met the Pope in private with my REAL President, Obama.

    Such bashing! It’s petty and ridiculous! They dressed this way out of respect! The modest ensembles follow the Vatican’s established dress code, according to the first lady’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham. “Per Vatican protocol, women who have an audience with the Pope are required to wear long sleeves, formal black clothing, and a veil to cover the head,” she told USA TODAY in an emailed statement.

        It’s interesting when someone like Lori (if I may) comes to a party, doesn’t know anyone, but starts lecturing, kinda like POTUS-45 at NATO, only to find out that they’re using old lecture notes.

    Was on a Twitter feed and found out that women meeting the Pope,in the Vatican, should wear Black and a headcovering. The only women allowed to wear White are Catholic Queens and Princesses – they still have to do the headcovering.
    The other exception is Queen Elizabeth II. Not because she is a Queen, but because as Queen,she is also Head of the Anglican church. So, her meeting the Pope is like one religious chieftain meeting another.

    The pictures were hilarious, and I also loved that Pope Francis,completely fluent in English, would only speak Spanish😄😄😄 to Dolt45.
