Thank You Sir, May We Have Another?
June 30, 2017
The problem isn’t that the Donald says crude, ugly, nonsense on Twitter – hell, that’s his strong suit. The real issue is that Trump doesn’t shock us enough. Sure, yesterday he talked some trash, got down on the media and, most importantly, put an uppity woman in her place.
But, that was yesterday. What about today? This morning’s news is full of rehash stories and analysis pieces about yesterday’s tweet – boring! The news cycle is 7/24 and we have every reason to expect better production from the man who was elected for his bluster and shock potential.
While he’s tweeted today, it’s been low-quality filler – reworking the Morning Joe thing, kind of milking it. We all get it, Trump don’t like them right now, especially Mika. But, he’s already done requisite name-calling and, as a bonus, poetically managed to imply a woman needed a face-lift while associating her with blood. So, damage done, mission accomplished – time to move on to what’s next.
If Trump is to be our shock jock president, then we need him to produce at least as much venom as Rush Limbaugh, who manages to impart something patiently offensive every single day. While it may seem so, the Donald has not made anything close to 235 shockingly offensive pronouncements in the two-hundred-thirty-five days since elected. Like so many other Trump customers, we’re being short changed by the Donald – sad.
The republic hopes that if the Donald ups his game and starts to belch appalling shit every day rather than just every week or so, it may be enough to gain Republican attention. Who knows, maybe if his crazy crap gets repeated often enough, our congress may recognize that there’s a mentally ill person in charge of the executive branch. Perhaps they’ll even do something to make the noise stop.
Yeah, I know – I’m a naive, hopeless, romantic. Republicans protecting us from an insane megalomaniac? Why would they do that, if he’s a Republican?
Oh well, time to check twitter – don’t wasn’t to miss the next Trump troll. I’m thinking he’s either gonna go after the Governor of Hawaii or some unsuspecting woman.
In Peace and Justice,
