Following the script
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.
Community outreach Hamas style
Aren’t the media something. They’ve had quite a week. Only they could boost Hamas, MS-13 and Stormy onto a pedestal over such a short period of time.
Even Planned Parenthood got into the act admonishing Trump for his animals comment. “This moment calls for the President to do serious self-reflection” said Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood. I do believe Ms Richards should sit this one out. After all, it takes a rather callous soul to not consider a little self-reflection after performing over 300,000 abortions each year. That’s millions over the many years it’s been in existence. Mao would be proud. They’ve likely surpassed the number of people he killed.
