Twenty-four days since the Trump Traveling Medicine Show took us by storm. Substituting “Make America Great Again” for “Good for What Ails You” and selling vitriol rather than snake oil, the Donald played a nearly perfect long-con to the White House.
As the next leader of the free world prepares to take charge, we eagerly await delivery of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” Trump style. But so far, his choices for leadership and agenda suggest the only remaining self-evident truth is “There’s a sucker born every minute”.
Buzzed on Trump elixir, the republic stands.
The Trump Cabinet is rounding out nicely. So far, we have Steven Mnuchin (from Goldman Sachs) for Treasury Secretary, Jeff Sessions (historic KKK supporter) for Attorney General and Elaine L. Chao (Mitch McConnell’s wife) for Transportation Secretary – just to name a few. The list goes on, sounding like a casting list for a remake of “Atlas Shrugged”.
I not going to batter you with detailed analysis of these people today. I’m certain you can find lots of information about them all on government, private and federal prison web sites. Details, details…
Instead, I offer an encapsulated response with an Angry Little Poem:
it should have been obvious
they would drain the swam
by filling it
That’s all I got today. Take care of yourselves and each other,
