“There must be some kind of way out of here,”
Said the joker to the thief,
“There’s too much confusion,
I can’t get no relief…”
~Jimi Hendrix, All Along the Watchtower
The Trump administration is like that magical car at the circus – the clowns just keep pouring out. Steve Bannon, Rick Perry, Ben Carson, Mike Pompeo, Jeff Sessions, an Exxon CEO tossed in just for fun … That’s quite a Brain Trust you’re building there, Mr. Trump. These guys certainly wouldn’t be winners on Jeopardy – or Wheel of Fortune for that matter.
And now it appears that Vladimir Putin may actually be the Ringmaster of Donald’s three ring circus. When American banks refused to loan Trump another dime, he got the money he needed from Russian financiers. Now he is “servicing” his debt to Russia. Trump is our next president, and Putin owns his ass.
After years of being labeled the Evil Empire, Russia is now labeled “not that bad.” Ronald Reagan is twirling in his grave… A racist, sexist circus led by a Russian thug…
Trump Supporter: Oh come on! Putin’s not that bad!
Me: You mean as far as vile murderous thugs go, he’s ok?
Trump Supporter: um yeah…
Truth is definitely stranger than fiction. Donald Trump has now made it cool to be stupid and uninformed. And he’s working on transforming Russia into our best friend. So much for truth and wisdom. Those of us who value education, fact checking and people who actually know what they’re talking about – well, we are all just so uncool.
Sorry Mr. Trump, but I’m putting my money on knowledge and truth. Your days are numbered. It’s only a matter of time before the Republicans realize their mistake.
