Future First Lady, Melania Trump--November, 2016
I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly about me. (Don't watch anymore) Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika along with Psycho Joe came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face lift. I said no!
Donald John Trump on Twitter this morning.
Yes, the man in control of the largest, most deadly, military in the world continues to prove he has the maturity, emotional stability and mental capacity of a 10 year old playground thug.
The difference, primarily, being, Donald Trump has a bunch of babbling shills working for him who attempt to explain to the world the true meanings of his early morning juvenile taunts and insults and why they happen.
Earlier today Sarah Huckabee Sanders told a Fox news commentator, the current resident of the White House, "...would not be bullied by outrageous personal attacks from the liberal media, liberal elites within the media, and Hollywood, or anyone else."
That's the ticket Sarah. Accuse everyone else of being guilty of the same crude behavior the boss constantly displays, portray him as the put upon victim, then play to the base by blaming everything on the ultimate boogie-men--the media, elites, and Hollywood. Doktor Goebbels couldn't have done it any better himself in those heady days when Herr Hitler was consolidating power.
On another front, the First Lady put her alleged campaign against cyber-bullying aside long enough to have a spokesperson issue a statement. It read, "As the First Lady has stated publicly--When her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder." Of course after her husband made the initial crack about Mexico sending the U.S. their, "criminals and rapists," she said, "I don't think he insulted the Mexicans," so her judgement in this area might be considered suspect.
Others weren't as forgiving. After this morning's outburst. James Lankford, the junior republican Senator from Oklahoma said, "(The president) should model civility, honor and respect in our political rhetoric. The President's tweets today don't help our political, or national discussion and do not provide a positive role model for our national dialogue."
Lindsey Graham, R-SC said, "Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America."
One republican Senator from Nebraska was more succinct. Ben Sasse wrote, "Please, just stop. This isn't normal and it's beneath the dignity of your office."
Unfortunately for us all, normalcy and dignity are two ships that sailed as soon as Donald Trump glided down that shiny escalator to announce his candidacy so many months ago. So did civility and respect, but then neither of them ever existed in the hearts of the gruesome mobs who led his charge and remain solidly behind him.
No, they actually like the mean-drunk, persona their man staggers around with. It is their idea of what American leadership should be. That's right, baby. Respect is for pussies--fear and loathing is what counts.
We might as well face it. The Twitter assaults aren't going to cease. We know that. The man wakes up early and immediately downs a heavy dose of some mutant brew containing huge amounts of orange juice, caffeine, and meth. Then, before anyone can react, he grabs his phone and his thumbs begin to stab at the keys in a blur. No one can stop him. Don't you think his people would have already if they could?
Indeed--in this White House it's obvious any outright suggestion of sanity, or restraint is cause for immediate exile and everyone around El Donald knows it. They also know banishment will be followed by yet another storm of tweets accusing them of, not just disloyalty, but also lax personal hygiene and lascivious Trump envy.
Hey, that's how The Big Orange Guy rolls. And--it's what we get as long as there isn't a line he won't cross.
