I don’t know how I would survive the Age of Trump if I had to live in a more “normal ” environment. I know two people who voted for Trump and they both live on the East Coast, so I don’t see them often. Here, I can go everywhere knowing I will seldom or ever be reminded of the sordid mess gripping our nation. We have an orange -haired asshole screeching that Putin is our friend. We have wierdo Steve Bannon displacing sober and intelligent military representatives on the national security council and announcing that the sees his role as “deconstructing ” the government, or whichever part of the government he thinks he can do without that particular day. And we have that same orange -haired asshole bleating that the newspapers and TV etc are WRONG- WRONG- and that only HE can be believed. Someone estimated he told 1300+lies during the past month. That sounds about right. HERE‘s another account of just a few days in February.
Trump, it’s clear, is not a traitor. The most undereducated man to ever occupy the White House doesn’t have the analytical skills to commit treason ; he’d need a lot of help. His BA in Real Estate from Wharton didn’t teach him critical thinking or even punctuation . There are other ways to end a sentence besides the exclamation point. Sad! Nor apparently did he learn to think on his feet. He favors Twitter because he can just shoot his BS without fearing contradiction but is too chicken to face the White House Correspondents Dinner. His cowardice will be marveled at by future generations. But thin-skilled Don the Con is too chicken to show up. JFK, Obama, both the Bushes showed up but not our little flower Don. I don’t think he’ll be missed. The man has NO sense of humor, a dreadful deficiency for so someone in power. He’s too insecure.
I didn’t make it to Jared’s town hall on Thursday. I have the luxury o f knowing that my reps- and that includes Mike McGuire and Jim Woods also- will not disgrace me. God, I love living up here in the bubble.
