Trump Times Entry 77 – The Wicked Witch of the West Wing

The Wicked Witch of the West Wing

January 24, 2017kekkyann03

Perhaps today, the seventy-seventh since the Donald acquired America and forth since completion of the hostile takeover, we can find some small way to make the voices in our heads go away. One particularly rasped voice, Kellyanne Conway, is my top candidate for elimination.

We all knew Kellyanne as the wildly successful Director of Propaganda for the Trump campaign. And now, as Counselor to the President she continues her magic, recasting reality before our eyes. With the logic of the Mad Hatter, the voice of an evil stepmother and the rage of the clinically insane she’s been chanting in our heads for so long. How about, we cast her out?  The timing seems right.

There’s no doubt, Kellyanne, a master at the dark art of dissuasion, still performs the classic “Lie then change the subject” move effortlessly and with the grace of a black widow. But lately, her chops have been a little suspect.

In her last NBC interview, she led with a threat – a good start. But then got blindsided by actual questions. (You’d think the treat would have made hard questions go away, but no.) Then, she got flustered and reflexively spit out the words that will be embossed on her grave – alternative facts.

The interviewer, smelling blood, jumped on the opportunity like an actual journalist (imagine my surprise) and eventually stated the obvious – alternative facts are falsehoods.

In a rank, amateur move, Kellyanne tried to change the subject by pivoting to Obama failures. But, Obama is history, gone – not an interesting enemy anymore. Kellyanne, the pro, had shifted in the wrong direction and stumbled. While she tried to “alternative fact” her way through the rest of the interview, the rout was on.

Clearly, Kellyanne’s best lies are behind her and she should move on. It would be best if she went voluntarily. You know, got on her broom and flew off into the sunset – cackling “Abandon all hope!” Something classy.

Otherwise we need the press to STOP interviewing her. There is no point in talking with a government representative arrogant enough to announce she is entitled to lie. Plus, she’s lost her mojo – out flanked by Chuck Todd, please!

Instead, let’s look to Sean “The Whiner” Spicer as the new voice for the Donald. At least when Sean tells us absolute bullshit, he doesn’t appear to be enjoying himself – for now.

The republic has standards, Kellyanne just doesn’t meet them. It’s only tough love.

In Peace and Justice,

Trump Times Entry 22 – Twittered to Distraction

Twittered to Distraction

November 30, 2016trump-monop

It’s been three weeks and a day since the worse electoral disaster since Warren G. Harding and Kellyanne Conway is on her way to Canada.

A high priestess in #CultTrump, Kellyanne isn’t fleeing to the great white north like so many Americans have done before. Rather, she’s visiting the tar sands to reassure the big energy corporations.  #CultTrump wants the them all to know, they will be allowed to leak toxic crude oil onto American soil for many years to come.  While upon fouled land, the republic still stands.

Off topic…
IMO, one of the worst consequences of the election is that we will be subjected to years of Kellyanne Conway.  With the grace of a playground bully, she sidesteps issues by attacking anyone who disagrees with her while claiming she’s the victim – of abusive logic, I guess.  The sound of her voice causes my gut to flip. I cannot look at her for fear of throwing-up.  She literally makes me sick.

Forcing Kellyanne onto the American public is a human rights violation!

Back on topic…
What was the topic?  Oh yeah, more presidential twitter bullshit.

We have lots of national concerns to amuse us at the moment.  Let’s see, we have a peaceful transfer of occurring (well, sort of); we have numerous conflict of interest questions arising from that transfer.  We have a troubling outbreak of hate incidents; we have an increasing number of Trump supporters publicly claiming that THEY are the victims of discrimination.  We still have all the usual shit – expensive war, shooting each other here at home, health-care, rich getting richer – everyone else poorer.  The usual.

So, what does the Donald Tweet about?  Why, flag burning of course.

In true Trump form, he managed to insult both our constitution and our intelligence in less than 140 characters.  But, if we focus on what he says, we miss the point.

Of course, it’s news when the President-Elect proposes an unconstitutional penalty for a non-crime, just because he thinks so.  But, since he really frequently tweets outrageous stuff, it’s not lead news.

It’s an obvious distraction – a change of subject to get everyone to overlook all the Loony-Toon corruption.

I think dumb-ass Trump tweets should only be covered in a single side-bar.  You know, with a title like “Shit Our Donald Tweeted Today”.  That way, those with a taste for it, could easily find what the Teeter-In-Chief’s got on his mind.  And the rest of us could assign this bullshit the importance is deserves.  None.

That’s all I got today.  Take care of yourselves and each other,
