That is how I feel. Disgusted.
As a news junkie – someone who looks forward to the weekend in part to read Peggy Noonan’s WSJ column (more so before she got so preachy) I just can’t do it anymore. It is joyless. And has become gross.
Trump and his administration keep stepping in it. The House Republicans have found a new planet called Delusion. What’s left of their party are orbiting somewhere in deep space. Democrats are vacillating between free fall and full crack up. The Main Stream Media are just plain liars. Sad, corrupt, pathetic and bitter, sore, sad losers.
Being an ardent Trump supporter I have wanted to be positive. To not criticize when it seems he’s up against the world. But frankly, this should have been anticipated. If you don’t know how to run the White House or form an administration – get someone who does. Outsource.
Paul Ryan – REALLY? Where have you been for the past eight years? We get a crack at this Obamacare thing and you guys suddenly don’t have a plan? Really? How about messaging – Obamacare did absolutely everything the Republicans said it would. It needs to be taken out back and shot. We’ll save a few good pieces of it – pre-existing conditions, staying on your parent’s policy until 26 (hey if you are living in their basement, why not) but other than that it’s a stuffed head for over the mantel.
And while you are at it, maybe taking less recess and vacation time and showing up every now and again might win you elections. Your approval rating is still 10 points lower than the media. Voters tend to like people who show up for work.
John McCain – no one and I mean NO ONE wants to hear anything from you. Unless it is a public service announcement for term limits. And your sidekick Lindsey Graham comes in a close second. So zip it.
This Russian FIASCO is so stupid. Just plain stupid. So what’s the premise – the Ruskies hacked Podesta’s emails which revealed how truly odious Hilary’s people really are? This is how Wikileaks influenced the election? The Main Stream Media went to great pains not to report on it. It really only appealed to political nerds, like myself and another handful of fellow Twitter followers.
We all know why Hilary lost the election. It wasn’t related to anything or anyone in Moscow.
Which bring us to the Democrats.
Schumer however annoyingly melodramatic is just doing his job. Much better than his Republican counterparts did by the way. Elizabeth Warren’s shill twitter tantrums have her dipping in the polls even in deep blue Boston. Maxine Waters is still battling her way out of a paper bag. Tim Kaine’s son was arrested for violent student protests. And the Biden’s son’s marital dramas are making us all feel normal.
But despite Soros’ bankrolling and Obama’s new roommate Valerie Jarrett and “shadow government” they are still without vigor, youthful leaders and new ideas. Their staggering losses under Obama’s Progressive doctrine have not led to any moments of self-reflection or consideration as to how they might recapture the hearts and votes of the vast voting block which is mentally and physically the middle of America.
The media are just vile. Their hysteria about absolutely every issue has exhausted most people I know. The reaction is the same to everything that comes out of the White House. The premise that Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, Jake Tapper or Martha Raddatz even have a blink of impartiality is no longer on the table. Their daily full-frontal assault on the President and the reaction to EVERYTHING he imposes have wearied even the most regular readers and watchers. Mika and her inamorata Joe Scarborough, teetering on the brink each morning drive off the steep cliffs of mental anguish. They are all now outed as unabashed talking heads for the DNC.
The only funny thing to have emerged was Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer. That was genuinely funny. The box of tricks MM used on SNL was a moment of gifted comedy. Alec Baldwin and the rest are too mean. And that woman who played Hilary and now Kelly Ann Conway needs to go. Impressions are only funny when one is good at them. Enjoy if you haven’t seen it.
All of this makes Sodom and Gomorrah a preferable destination to Washington DC.
What a mess.
