The national shame tour continues. THANKGOD Trump is leaving Europe... OH NO! He's heading back here. Can't we put him in holding at JFK?!!
It has gotten increasingly painful - who knew it could get worse? - watching his "performance" on the world stage. I thought that GWB was as bad as it could get. But nothing really prepares one for something as awful as Trump. The gross incompetence and sheer assholitude of he and his cabal of nincompoops is constantly astounding. Mick Mulvaney rolls out a budget that makes no sense and tries to defend double-counting two trillion dollars
of mistakes based on imaginary numbers (Lawrence Summers called the oversight an "elementary double count" and "a logical error of the kind that would justify failing a student in an introductory economics course" WaPo
.) Instead of creating a $3-5 Trillion dollar hole, Mulvaney claims the tax cuts will pay for themselves twice
. I thought magic mushrooms were illegal, General Sessions? His "defense" insulted virtually everyone who has ears and his excuses for breathtakingly curmudgeonly excess made Scrooge look like Mother Theresa.
Then came May 25... What David Frum (that bastion of liberal politics) described as Trump's Moral Holiday
, combined four dishearteningly commonplace events of "Trumpism" on one day: Trump's NATO speech, Jared Kushner's efforts to create a Russian "back door" to the President was exposed (apparently in exchange for financing for his failing 666 project), active collusion
by GOP operatives were detailed by the Wall Street Journal, and GOP pols fell over themselves defending Greg Gianforte's unprovoked beating of a journalist - including blatantly lying about it to the press.
The first step in our 12-step recovery from Trump begins with "Admitting to ourselves we were powerless over Trump-induced depravity - that our lives have become unmanageable." I have no mouth but I must scream.
