DISTURBING ITEM #1:
TRUMP CAN READ FROM A TELEPROMPTER, SO NOW HE’S PRESIDENTIAL
It’s hard to fathom the extent that Trump was praised for his speech before the joint session of congress last Tuesday. And this praise was mostly just for staying on script, not messing up and reading from a teleprompter.
It might have been any other boyhood rite of passage. Pissing contest anyone? And for this he’s presidential?
DISTURBING ITEM #2:
TRUMP MAKES UNFOUNDED STATEMENTS AND ACCUSATIONS (AGAIN!)
Then on Saturday, Trump tweets that Obama had been tapping his phone. On the face of it, this accusation is so outlandish that it just seems farcical. But then once the Trump tweet gets served up by social media it mutates to become something even more absurd. So the headline on my phone becomes “Trump Calls for Probe.”
And what is this you ask, that Trump might be probing? Of course as president, Trump can basically probe whatever or whomever that he wants. Maybe that’s what got him interested in the job.
And the “media” will continue keep us informed about his every condiment, fabrication or tweet.
Come on people, don’t you see that this sound bite journalism is just making us even more stupid? And just when we really needed to start getting so much smarter.
*Note: And the Republicans in congress go along for the ride and agree that the most recent Trump ravings should be investigated at the same time they look into real election interference by top Russian officials.
And while they’re at it, they agree to look into another outlandish Trump claim that over 3 million people (illegal aliens no less) illegally voted for Hillary.
And as I wrote earlier and I must ask this Republican majority again, “is staying in power under these circumstances, really even that worth it?”
