Overheard in a Costco:
Cory Booker: I’ll be taking one of those meatball samples.
Employee: Help yourself.
Booker: I’ll be taking it no matter the consequences.
Employee: They’re for everyone. Go right ahead.
Booker: And I’m not paying for it!
Employee: No charge. Really.
Booker: I am Spartacus!!
A year and a half into Trump’s presidency and Hillary is no closer to reaching that last step in the grieving process. In fact, she appears to have added steps such as mania, rage, conspiracy jitters, boxed wine comfort, what-I’d-do-if-I-was-president input, continuous what-if’ing campaign strategy, and burning cheese head hats to punish Wisconsin voters. We’re doubtful that the last step in the human grieving process, acceptance, will be possible.
In the mean time, the crushing defeat is worn like a 300 lb chip on her shoulder … in the shape of Trump.
Politicians fight, say mean things, complain about the other side of the aisle and take quotes out of context to make each other look like racist, sexist, aliens from another planet.
Th ere are no better examples of this feigned outrage in Congress than the hoopla over Trump’s “animal” comment, his disinviting the Eagles, and the flip-flopping apoplexy depending on whether there is or isn’t going to be a summit. It’s like they wake up in the morning to see where Trump stands on any issue so they can calibrate their rage compass and proceed to battle stations.
In the end though, conservatives are fired up, liberals are fired up, and the results are heavier doses of campaign donations … so they can do it all over again.
Maybe they learned it from professional wrestling. And if so, maybe that’s why Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is considering a run at the presidency.
Speaking of animals, did you see where an MS-13 gang member in Boston was sentenced to 40 years in prison for killing a 15 year old? The murderer is affectionately known as Animal. Oh, and when he gets out of prison he’ll be deported … unless Boston’s a sanctuary city.
Trump called him Lyin’ Comey. Which seems to lack a little creativity especially since so many others during the 2016 election were already christened Lyin’. With the revelations that Comey may have had a serious habit of leaking unsubstantiated perverse hearsay, a better name for him might be Leakin’ Comey.
But it is surprising how these damning revelations could not help skewer Trump on the impeachment alter. Of course one could easily blame other distractions such as the vibrant economy, the potential for a non-nuclear North Korea, the demise of ISIS and other little pesky things the middle of the country calls “accomplishments.”
