T-Rump appears in a rapid melt-down, or even worse — oh, the causticity, as explained this morning by Gail Collins at the New York Times:
Pick your favorite irony:
1) Donald Trump turns out to be terrible at firing people.
2) The White House celebrates its “American Heroes Week” by banning transgender volunteers from serving in the military.
3) Thanks to the president’s harangues, we are actually starting to feel sympathy for Jeff Sessions.
Number three a wonder — Sessions is a horrible, horrible human being, an asshole cretin, thus ‘feel sympathy‘?
T-Rump untamed — further from Collins:
Trump appears completely unaware that he’s beginning to look like the worst terminator in history.
Introducing Tom Price, the secretary of health and human services, at an event this week, the president jovially said that Price had better get the health care bill passed through Congress, “otherwise, I’ll say: ‘Tom, you’re fired.’ I’ll get somebody.”
This was at that Boy Scouts jamboree when Trump did such a great job of impersonating your Uncle Fred Who Gets Drunk at Family Dinners.
How many of you think the Boy Scouts have been yearning for the day when the president would come to their big event, tell the teens that their federal government is a “sewer,” recount a long and incoherent story about a real estate developer who went off to make whoopee on his yacht, and brag incessantly about having won the election?
On the plus side, Trump did not misrepresent the Scout position on Hezbollah.
As always, Collins is a delight, nailing the head — read the whole column.
And for a more insightful, and way-more-shitty look at T-Rump’s internal organ-operation, read Ryan Lizza’s piece posted this afternoon at The New Yorker.
This country is in the hands of a bunch of crazed, mean-spirited pieces-of-shit…
In response, this a couple of days ago via The Borowitz Report:
In an extraordinary rebuke of the President of the United States, the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. have obtained a restraining order against Donald J. Trump.
The order, which the Girls Scouts were granted on Monday night, prevents Trump from coming within three hundred feet of any gathering of the Scouts’ organization.
Carol Foyler, a Girl Scouts spokesperson, said that while the G.S.U.S.A. sought the restraining order “out of an abundance of caution,” the girls themselves were “in no way, shape or form” afraid of President Trump.
“They’re prepared to deal with bobcats and bears,” she said.
“They can handle a malignant narcissist.”
Trump wasted little time responding to the Girl Scouts’ action, lashing out at the organization in a blistering early-morning tweet storm.
“Failing Girl Scouts bad (or sick) guys,” Trump wrote. “Mints, cookies terrible. Sad!”
Maybe a surrealistic-glitch in the matrix…
