For a TV-addicted Prez, it’s odd that he missed 8 seasons of HBO’s Homeland. He’d have learned that when you go to introduce yourself to the CIA, you shouldn’t diss their fallen heroes. Or. Constantly bash their former and current leadership. The Deep State may not be fictitious.
Yes. You crossed the wrong people. Saul, Carrie, Dar. They can’t even trust each other. What made you think they wouldn’t take you down? See Whistleblower. CIA. Hey. You asked for it.
Logan Roy pits his kids against each other in a fratricidal competition, akin to Soapatriarch Victor Newman. In that other reality show, Trump sets up his spawn to vie for the family business with a nod to have the next G-7 at their Doral Resort in that swing state of Florida.
Over in Democrat land. Elizabeth Warren is drawing huge crowds. It could be a bloody fight with Sleepy Joe for the nomination. Uglier than a Kendall-Roman wrestling match where each ends up Shivved.
A rough & tumble Fall. For some of us. That’ll be fun.
The candidate casino. $100 in chips today. How’d you bet? $35 Warren. $15 Biden. $10 Harris. $5 Booker. $5 Buttigieg. $5 Woo-Woo Williamson. $25 Somebody Who Can Win.
Scaramouche has had a come-to-Jeezus epiphany about our Petulant Adolescent President. Why? He’s looking to make a buck by convincing Nikki Haley or Mark Sanford to make a primary run at Trump.
FedEx Cup. That end of season golf thing. After an even more convoluted fan-phobic structure this year. Who will win? Who cares?

My 2018 Wish List. Predilections. Didn’t get a lot.
Luann de Lesseps & Harvey Weinstein hookup in rehab. Not that I know.
Melania on Dancing With the Stars. Nope.
Jon Stewart replaces Colbert. Too bad not.
Sam will reunite with real Jason. Almost.
Tim Ryan not Paul Ryan will replace Pelosi as Speaker. Kinda sorta but not.
Tiger wins another major. He did not.
Patriots will not win the Super Bowl. Ding. Ding. Ding.
Tops will no longer have shoulder holes. Unfortunately they still do.
Pets will develop allergies to humans. No. But they were attacked by raccoons in Central Park.
Alexa will do the dishes. No. And we had to put her in the cabinet. She was spying on us.
December 2017 made these predictions for 2018. How’d I do?
Trump will tweet a lot A+
Cable News and NYTimes will freak out about it daily A+
So will certain family and friends A+
TTSD antidote will be mid-term elections C+
Societal polarization will vertically widen B
Garbage trucks will wake us up B+ (getting used to them)
Streaming services will shutter movie theaters C- (most still open)
Online shopping will render the end of malls B- (some still open)
There will be a military action in North Korea F (Rocket Man bromance)
The obvious. Women will march. Bernie will run. So will Biden. Trump will tweet. The media will go nuts every time he does. Lots of people will get shot by guns. Okay. Now for the harder stuff.

New York Magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi was heading out of the White House to the North Gate when she got a call on her cell phone. She didn’t recognize the number, but answered. It was Sarah Huckabee Sanders asking Olivia to come back. Trump had heard that Nuzzi was poised to write a hit piece about chaos in the administration. She was especially going to focus on rumors that he was ready to replace Chief of Staff John Kelly with Nick Ayers.
What ensued was an Oval Office farce. As Nuzzi sat opposite Trump at his Resolute Desk, a parade came through the door behind her. John Kelly. Mike Pence. Pence’s pawn Nick Ayers. Mike Pompeo. They were purportedly there for a pre-ordained “lunch” meeting. Yet sat on the couch as Trump regaled Olivia with his greatness and then solicited their allegiance.
Surprising? No. But Nuzzi writes a brilliantly revealing funny piece which shines the light on a Petulant Adolescent President. MUST READ. Tomorrow. Lunch with Kanye!
Comey? Criticized by both sides of the aisle. Salacious self-serving book. Okay. He was canned ignominiously by the Kakistocratic Capo. Of course. He. The always despicable petulant adolescent President. Now in a sandbox fight with taunts and tweets right out of the elementary school playground. Assad? Genocidal autocrat. Putin? Comrade.
