Tweet for the Tillerman

Rex Tillerson’s ouster was communicated by a tweet. Bad blood was evident in the Secretary’s awkward breathless speech. An ungracious President’s latest to leave the White House’s inner circle. Trump better watch his step and hire a food taster quick. He’s piling up enemies by the minute. If he crosses Vlad next, who knows what’ll happen. It’ll get even Stormy-er in the Oval Office. Pompeo & Bolton? Whoa. That’ll be a hawk show. Duck and cover.

Apologies to the former Cat Stevens.

Crossed Lines

School shootings no longer covered door-to-door on cable news.
So-called journalists overtly perpetuate the Trump “resistance”.
Olympic “doctor” finally brought to justice.
James Franco denied Oscar nom by disgruntled actresses.
Christopher Plummer gets Oscar nod replacing true perp.
Blurring lines. Diluting real criminal actions with creepy encounters.
New Yorkers struggle. Pats or Eagles? Neither nemesis. Alexa predicts Eagles.
As injured NFL players languish in locker rooms.

Misfired Ire

Hair on fire! Trump is a racist misogynistic tyrant! Finally we see him for who he really is!! What? This is the same guy whose immigration policy was to ban all colorful people from entering the country, hung out at the Playboy Mansion, owned beauty pageants, led the birther movement. BEFORE he was elected President. What is with this surprised outrage? Have you met him?

None of the ire directed at Trump will win the next election. Broken record alert! Jamie Dimon said it yesterday. Dems don’t have a centrist candidate who can win the general election in 2020. That’s where the biased media should be focusing its rants.

Epiphany Storm

In case you were wondering. Trump is still tweeting a lot. As predicted. More than usual. Today he assures us in a flurry that is he mentally stable and smart. As one tweeter observed Donald J. Trump, the J. must be for GENIUS! And. Sloppy Steve Bannon is a LOSER. Where is SNL?

Pope Francis cautions that career and money should not be the focus of our lives. Check. And. As Daphne Merkin posits in her excellent NYT piece, feminists cannot be fierce and snowflakes at the same time. Wearing black won’t change that.

Dennis Rodman of Celebrity Apprentice fame. Mutual friend of our Portly President and North Korea’s Dumpy Despot. Could he broker a summit to thwart nuclear war? Just to be safe. Revert to 1950’s duck and cover under your desks. Or huddle in the nearest bomb shelter.
