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.

Throwback Thursday

The Gates. 2005.

Daily gaits. 2017.

No snow in sight. So far.

 

 

 

Tiger Woods is back on the links. Under par.

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.

Clown Alert!

The new horror movie IT is tapping into people’s deepest fears. With all-clown screenings being planned. Terrifying. Chilling. Creepy. Dangerous. Sinister.

Since Trump. Coulrophobia has become rampant.

Chaos Is A Ladder

Bran recalled Littlefinger’s phrase in Game of Thrones. It may apply to today’s Trump administration. Chief of Staff John Kelly looks like jelly in the wake of his boss’ derailment syndrome. Trump talking off-the-cuff to give cover to KuKluxers in his mid-town tower.

In the meantime. Wily Steve Bannon gave an interview to moonbat Robert Kuttner in Amherst, Massachusetts no less. Calling Alt-Right fringe a collection of clowns. Identity politics will crush the Democrats, said he. Thinking his comments were off-the-record. Kuttner & Bannon do seem to share antipathy for Chinese trade shenanigans. Bannon must be out-the-door.

Chaos is a ladder to unity afterall. To sanity and comity. A civil coup.

House of Vulgarian

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.

Donald Badenov

Cartoony. Even Rocky & Bullwinkle’s stumbling Russian spy Boris Badenov cannot rival Donald the Dufus’ latest bumble. Hey Lavrov! Back slap Kislyak. Come into my Oval office. Bring your cameras and listening devices. Dah. Dah. You von’t show photos, okay? Let me tell you Ruskie guys. Ve get such huge intelligence on Isis. Thees is vhere ve get it. Better than you. Vant to see my electoral map? Crowds at inauguration? Thanks for coming boys. Daz Vee Dahnya.

Now CNN vill never shut up.

End Game

Trump is off the rails. As usual. Petulant Adolescent President. Tweeting breathless threats. No change there. Comey’s firing has set the mainstream media’s hair up in smoke. Dems talking impeachment. Russia obsession cranked into hyperdrive. So. Let’s say Trump blows himself up. Resigns. Gets run out of D.C. What then? 3 + years of Pence. A saner yet far right-wing regime. Would that be an improvement? We may find out.

Kind of like the odds of hitting a hole-in-one on the island green. Sergio?!

End Play

An endplay, in bridge and similar games, is a tactical ploy where a defender is put on lead at a strategic moment. Cue Rod Rosenstein confirmation as the deputy attorney general who will oversee the Russia investigation. Trump seemingly on defense has now taken the helm. First act. Fire FBI Director, James Comey. Discredits him on that front and creates doubt about ending Hillary’s email investigation. Could backfire. Demand for special prosecutor got louder.

Brilliant? Or. Cynical? We’ll see. Hot summer ahead.

Global Pragmatism

Trump Doctrine? Global Pragmatism. Make deals. With Russia to help combat terrorism in return for a softer ouster of the House of Assad. Also allowing Putin to push boundaries in his own backyard. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson leverages Exxon-Mobil relationships to get key players around the table. Was strident Syria stand-off a ploy to divert attention from potential election collusion? To pave the way for a nouveau détente. Probably. And with China. Financial and trade deals in exchange for help with Syria and North Korea.

Of course. Trump could derail his own doctrine in a minute. In reaction to a perceived slight. With an errant press conference remark. Or a tweet.
