Observations on Trump Administration

Postby HawkHead » Tue Jan 24, 2017 2:20 pm

This reminds me so much of spousal abuse. Hit the spouse, promise you will never do it again, hit the spouse again.

Sean Spicer goes ape-shit on reports over the size of the inauguration crowds. The next day he says, "our intention is never to lie." Today he is back at it with millions of illegal votes or Trump would have won the popular vote and will offer no proof.

Sean Spicer is the new minister of propaganda. In three years he will probably say something like this (taken from a Goebbels' speech and substituting Trump for Hitler and USA for Germany).

"There is probably no one left on the planet who does not know him as a statesman and as a remarkable popular leader. Only a few, however, have the pleasure of seeing him as a man each day from close up, to experience him, and as I might add, to come as a result to a deeper understanding and love for him. These few wonder how it is possible that a man who only three years ago was opposed by half of the nation stands today above any doubt and every criticism. The USA has found a unity which will never be shaken. Donald Trump is the man of fate, who has the calling to save the nation from terrible internal conflict and shameful foreign disgrace, to lead it to longed-for freedom.

That one man has captured the hearts of the whole nation, despite the sometimes difficult and unpopular decisions he had to make, is perhaps the deepest, most amazing secret of our age. It cannot be explained only by his accomplishments, for it is just those who have had to make the heaviest sacrifices for him and for national reconstruction, indeed who must still bring them, who have sensed his mission in the deepest and most joyful way. They are the ones who have the most honest and passionate love for him as President and as a man. That is the result of the magic of his personality and the deep mystery of his pure and honest humanity".

So far, it's a dumpster fire. And that doesn't even take into account his policy actions. He hasn't done anything in that regard that I didn't expect.

Ha. Kellyanne coins "alternative facts," somebody at CNN calls it "a George Orwell phrase," other people picked up on it, and sales of "1984" and "Animal Farm" have soared at Amazon.

Can't shut the barn door yet but maybe some of them are starting to wake up.

There's no end to the madness. Somebody just told Martina Navratilova that she didn't understand communism.

They are correct. Martina Navratilova needs to be educated. You could use some yourself.

Maybe you should educate yourself about Martina Navratilova before making stupid statements like this.

Google is your friend.

I did. My friend Google told me that Martina Navratilova is a tennis player who needs to be educated.

Maybe you should read past the first sentence; if you have the attention span to do so.

Here, I will help you. Martina grew up in communist controlled Czechoslovakia during the cold war in the 1950s and 60s.
