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.
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.
Summer cannot be over. Labor Day done already. Congress back to confront a myriad of challenges. DACA. Hurricanes. Tax reform. Oh. And. Nuclear North Korea. Bring back M.A.S.H. reruns which will remind. Horrors mild compared to what another war on that peninsula would be. With two unpredictable leaders, wacky weather, legislative malaise. Duck and cover.
On a lighter note, new binge is cheeky fun spy trilogy. Worricker. Bill Nighy, Helena Bonham Carter. Distraction fodder. And take a climb up to the castle folly in Central Park to get a new perspective on things.
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.
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.
From McMaster to even Jeff Sessions, Generals’ voices are coalescing around a rational nucleus. Charlottesville, Virginia shone the light on evil, historic statues and symbols of division and violence born of hate. It showed Terry McAuliffe to be a bad manager. But, on the bright side. It also affords an opportunity to cleanse the White House of Bannon and the Alt-Right. If a case can be made by the Generals, this may be the perfect moment to get rid of the destructive chaos faction of the West Wing. And. The military leaders seem to be the ones least interested in going to war. So. Maybe a silent coup is best.
On a ridiculous side trek. Mario Cantone is clearly the winner over Bill Hader in the Scaramouche battle. Anthony himself took his medicine like a man. Let’s see where he lands.
