Noem Makes First Daughter’s Wedding a Trump Fest

The wedding of the Governor’s daughter who isn’t on the state payroll and the lucky young fiancé who is wasn’t just an ironic gathering of anti-government Republicans celebrating at a government-maintained state park. It was a  barfilicious Trump rally:

I’d be a little appalled to see what should be the happiest day of my life forever framed in the fleeting political sloganeering of the time. If I were the gushing groom, I’d be a little nervous to see my blushing bride depicted in a wedding memento with her back to me and her inviting smile directed toward some rich and rude Manhattan geezer who brags about sexual misconduct. And neither my wife nor I would have presumed to plop our heads onto a mock Mount Rushmore on our wedding day.

But then I married a woman of impeccable taste, class, and moral consistency. And neither of us would have put up with our wedding day being used to send any message other than, “I love you.”

    Oh, and Wilted Weenie has NEVER looked that good.

  2. Debbo 2019-06-12 21:41

    Really. Who would trash up their wedding with political crap like that? 🙄🙄🤢🤮🤮🤮

    I believe you’ve reached a logical impasse inasmuch as you suggest that my wife, for being a Trump supporter, is not “a woman of impeccable taste, class, and moral consistency”. If you have evidence of this, I’d appreciate it if you’d send it to me that I might confront her about her affront. I have a more important question on my mind that doesn’t really have to do with subversive, subjective assessments of implied morality (I find it difficult to believe you find Trump’s moral indiscretions all that reprehensible, anyway). If Michelle Obama is a Transvestite like Joan Rivers said (RIP), my question is this .. who is the man in the relationship?

    Enter John Dale the detractor-in-chief.

    When Kevin posted this earlier today all I could was “tacky”.

    After thinking about it for a moment I would add that picture actually looks like a come on for a cheap tourist trap. You know it might be a good advertisement for a taffy shop or t-shirt store.

    John Dale is married? Must be a dream to be hitched to someone with no redeeming qualities.

    Did the bride stroll up the aisle with a bouquet of skunk and coon tails? Hillbilly chic, donchaknow.

    I heard Granny served possum dumplings at the pool table and used those special pot holdin’ sticks to serve the delicious greasy stew with cornbread on the side to mop it up. Moonshine was served to wash them vittless down. Hogbelly ice cream was served for dessert while the bride carved up the cake with her gift from the groom, a slightly used Husqvarna 460 Rancher. Vlad Putin sent his regards along with a request to have his bust added to Mount Rushmore next to Trump’s head, a suggestion that was warmly greeted by one and all.

    In lieu of a dance, a contest was held to determine which of the brides maids had the most stylish facial hair.

    Instead of throwing rice, guests gathered to throw lead, and so all of the wedding guests pulled out their unregistered, hidden weaponry and emptied their 30-round clips, shooting wildly into the night air. YeeeeeEEEEEEE – Haaaaawwwwww!!!!!!

    John Dale, I cast no aspersions on your wife’s class, taste, or moral consistency. I say that the Noem-Peters political wedding theme lacked class and taste and arguably demonstrates a moral sloppiness by (1) layering political messaging onto a religious ceremony (one that Noem claims to hold in high regard) and (2) celebrating a wedding by elevating a demonstrated adulterer next to her daughter.

    I have no evidence that you or your wife did any such decorating at your wedding. I thus make no conclusions about your wife’s moral character.

    I read Dale’s comment as in he is the one who is marrying Kassidy Noem.

  9. o 2019-06-13 08:31

    Kathy, I thought the same thing for a moment: John Dale = Kyle Peters!?

    I do think this shows the allure of President Trump as the folk hero character for the Right. He transcends his role as businessman or even President to be larger than life — put him on Mt. Rushmore (not ironically), use his image to celebrate special family occasions . . . Only by viewing President Trump as the folk hero of the right/conservatives/GOP can one understand this relationship with his followers.

    I’m sorry to hear that marriage wasn’t great up until a couple of weeks ago. I’m not sure how to break the news to my wife of 35 years.

  11. Kurt Evans 2019-06-13 11:28

    Are we sure the faces in the middle aren’t Stormy Daniels and Karen Pence?

    Many of the personal attacks on Governor Noem and her family strike me as unfair or unnecessary, but I’m glad to be informed about Buttongate, and I hope Kyle and Kassidy don’t have as many “great” marriages as President Trump has had.

  12. Porter Lansing 2019-06-13 11:46

    Best Wishes, Kassidy ~ Congratulations, Kyle 💕

    It sort of look like Kass has her arms wrapped around turnp and Kyle has his wrapped around pence.

    Donald Trump makes Christians do things that they would never do in other circumstances if they were really thinking about their Scripture and their church education.

  16. Cory Allen Heidelberger Post author | 2019-06-13 18:38

    Good point, El Rayo X. Marriage has been great for my wife and me for 17 years. I wish to take nothing away from anyone else’s marital bliss… but we don’t Kassidy, Kyle, and the Donald to make marriage great for us.

    Christians and decent people should think about the meaning of the words they use.

  17. Cory Allen Heidelberger Post author | 2019-06-13 18:39

    Chris, yes, the layout is problematic. A memento of a wedding should focus on the bride and groom, yet that button has political figures upstaging the newlyweds. Upstaging the bride and groom is usually considered uncool.

  18. Cory Allen Heidelberger Post author | 2019-06-13 18:40

    As your next Governor, I promise not to turn anyone’s wedding into a political affair that alienates certain guests.

  19. Donna Palmlund 2019-06-13 19:00

    Cory for governor!

  20. chris 2019-06-14 01:11

    turnp looks like ernest borgnine and pence looks like frank gorshin.

    Kristi and now Lynn DiSanto are wanna be “rockstars”.

    Trump does it. Trump influences Gov Noem to fence off the mansion; to fill the Capitol with concealed hand guns; to rush unconstitutional riot booster laws.

    Putin does it. He influences Trump. He gave Trump the Presidency. Trump gave Kristi the Governor’s office. (Thanks Sioux Falls-home of the Koch Brothers and the new tax evasion trust haven for international billionaires).

    Putin’s cousin runs giant Gazprom.

    Putin’s daughter Katerina Tikhonova runs publicly-funded projects at Moscow State University and serves as the vice president for expansion and marketing of the World Rock’n’Roll Confederation.

    Rock’n Roll-the voice of rebellion, up the establishment: co-opted by the billionaires.

    The depth of international corruption surrounding and connecting Putin, Trump, Barr, and now Noem, is breathtaking. Dusty seems to have avoided the russian trap, and Great God, Marion just found his “balls” too.

    Putin violated and then pulled out of the 1987 nuclear weapons treaty INF in 2007 developing Russia’s hyper speed missile, and the USA recession coincidently occurred.

    Putin was furious with HRC because she questioned the corruption of his election, 2011. “The lady has balls,” Tussian officials cringed. R

    You guys are rude. I’m sure the bride and groom gave the thumbs up on these guest favors for their wedding. I see them as cute and funny, as they are a political family. You all just have so much hatred for Kristi Noem, you will pick on something from her daughter’s wedding, Must be a slow news day.

  24. leslie 2019-06-14 12:00

    Trump pulled out of the INF in 2018.

    According to a recent Putin call with Trump, about which New York Senator Schumer tweeted in disgust, “President Donald Trump spent an hour on the phone with Putin. Instead of pressing Putin on the Mueller Report’s extensive evidence that Russia hacked our elections, they gossiped about Fox News conspiracy theories? Trump’s priorities are appalling and undermine democracy.”

    Trump tweeted back: “We discussed Trade, Venezuela, Ukraine, North Korea, Nuclear Arms Control and even the “Russian Hoax.”

    NBC’s Kristen Welker asked, “Did you tell them not to meddle in the next election?” Trump fired back, “Excuse me, I’m talking, I’m answering this question. You are very rude.” When asked again, the president replied, “We didn’t discuss that.”

    There are a lot of things that are cute and funny in some settings but tasteless and inappropriate in others.

    Speaking of weddings, Drumpf referred to Melanoma as “it” today.

    The president likened Melania Trump to former President John F. Kennedy’s wife while defending his decision to paint the new Air Force One aircraft red, white and blue instead of the baby blue color Jackie O chose in the 1960s.

    “It was Jackie O and that’s good. But we have our own Jackie O today, it’s called Melania,” the president said in a phone interview with Fox & Friends. “Melania. We’ll call it Melania T, OK?”

    objectified nepotism. there’s a new one

    “Jared Kushner—whose only qualification to senior-advise the president on policy is that he is married to the president’s daughter—seems to have taken, per the Guardian, $90 million in foreign funding since 2017 from an “opaque offshore vehicle.” This influx comes via a stake he kept in a real estate company after assuming his government post, and given that the cash has come in via the Cayman Islands (via Goldman Sachs), we have no idea who is actually enriching this public official who is meant to be working for us.”

    Some Bible Christians seem to have a very different attitude toward President Trump’s lies and adultery than we had toward President Clinton’s. That troubles me a little, but I don’t hate Governor Noem or her family.

    Therer is no hatred. We just see how nepotisim works in the Republican party. Politico, KATY O’DONNELL 06/13/2019
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren is calling on government-owned mortgage financier Freddie Mac to provide details on its reported backing of an $800 million loan to the real estate firm owned by White House adviser Jared Kushner’s family.
