The “cone of uncertainty”. A newly minted weather phrase that promises unpredictability. With. No accountability. Will. The hurricane hit what city. Trump’s generals take us to war against North Korea’s “rocket man”. The stock market correct to pop the overvalued bubble. The NFL implode. Democrats and Republicans meld to disappear. The United Nations get swept into the East River. Yes. The world is in the path of an amorphous Category 5 cyclone.
MSNBC’s Katy Tur covered the Trump campaign from its inception. She saw first hand the crowd reaction to his brand of populism and their excitement at having someone who related to their desire for settling scores. A new bully on their side for a change who promised to level the playing field. Trump is their guy no matter his latest tweet. If the media and establishment continue to ignore this segment of America, it will be at their future peril.
Hillary Clinton’s new book. What Happened? An in-depth catharsis about why she stunningly lost the election to that “reality star clown” Donald Trump. It clearly wasn’t her fault.
On her blame list: James Comey. Vlad Putin. Julian Assange. Bernie Sanders. Joe Biden. Matt Lauer. Mark Zuckerberg. Baskets of deplorable men. Well. All white men. Plus Barack Obama. So. What happened? Men happened. Of course.
Okay. It’s all set. Bannon News Network. Now that Bannon’s out of the White House. He’s free to wrangle Breitbart editors he likes plus liberated Fox friends Bill O’Reilly, Bill Shine, Sean Hannity, to form the Alt-CNN communications network. A clear offensive against the Alt-Left, especially the Left Overs in the White House- Gary Cohn, Dina Powell, Ivanka & Jared, General H.R. McMaster. Game on. Old White Men’s Last Stand. Yup. House of Cards will seem tame.
A most sage mAd source posited a theory. Now that General Kelly’s in charge. Will he secretly mount a coup d’état? A patriotic call to save the country?
Four generals. One Army. Three Marines. National Security Advisor General McMaster has been firing Bannon-ites left and right. General Mattis is ensconced at Defense. General Joseph Dunford, Joint Chiefs of Staff. Semper Fi. Congress at their command. Once they ditch Ivanka & Jared, the Palace Coup will be easy. Install Pence as their puppet with Trump in retreat.
TTSD sufferers take solace. There may be an elixir yet.
House of Vulgarian. West Wing locker talk. Scaramouche cannot contain his bouche. Expectorating expletives. Causing chaos and confusion. Trump is a happy man. Crass communications director is crazier than he. Tee hee! Jeff Sessions slimed. Reince Priebus slammed. Steve Bannon. Well. He’s clearly a contortionist. Game on. Dragons aside. Winter is here. If Shortfingers is laughing, the country can panic. Start now.
As McCain sticks his Valerian sword into McConnell over at the House of Dome.
Senators Graham & McCain. Renegades on parade. Taking their commitment to be the loyal opposition to a new level. Graham just had an interview where he accused Manafort and Trump Junior of being go-betweens with Russia to thwart Hillary’s campaign. Then he said he’d propose a bill to keep the President from firing Special Council Mueller. Then he is co-sponsoring a health care amendment to leave States accountable for costs.
Meanwhile, John McCain whose time seems limited, is naysaying and calling on his colleagues to work together. Even though if he’d won the presidency Sarah Palin may have become President. She who opened the door to Trumpian types in mainstream politics.
Don’t be distracted by West Wing intrigue. These dos amigos may tilt the windmills.
