The Latest Shiny Thing

March 27, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Last week was one of the most disastrous weeks of Cheeto’s administration where his biggest promise, kicking 24 million people off of healthcare, came crashing down to decisive defeat.  Republicans, knowing he actually is nuts and would sign anything they put in front of him, finally woke up and decided that taking healthcare away from their voters would actually lower their chances for re-election, their only true goal.

So, CJ put that promise back on the shelf and has now moved to making government “sleek”, by assigning his son in law, Jared Kushner, to yet another new job.  So far, his primary job has been trying to keep his father in law from chopping up the Resolute desk and using it for kindling to burn down the White House, and so far, that has been pretty much a full time job.  Now young Kushner is going to head up the shiny new White House Office of American Innovation, a supposed think tank made up of an amalgamation of billionaire inventors and business people who have been charged with making the US government run like a business.  Of course, the US Government is not a business and CAN’T be run like one, but no matter, here’s our new shiny thing to talk about while the Congress continues to ignore the actual threat to the US government – the Russians.

I’ll give this one two weeks or so, then we’ll be consumed with another incendiary tweet from His Orangeness.

Jesus.  No, really.  Jesus.

And, Again, Trump Doesn’t Have Any Idea What That Word Means

Okay, so this week two additional federal judges ruled against Trump’s immigration plan.

Trump’s statement?

“This is, in the opinion of many, an unprecedented judicial overreach. … This ruling makes us look weak,” the president declared before appearing to vow to take the issue to the Supreme Court.

Thing #1:  Uh, it’s not unprecedented and do you want to know why?  Because a judge ruled against it two weeks ago. To be unprecedented, it has to have never happened before.

But then again, maybe he meant unpresidented.  Yeah, he probably did mean that.

Thing #2:  Makes “us” look weak?  No, Honey, it makes you look weak. It makes you look like you make crazybutt statements and promises that you cannot keep because you’re weak.

Thanks to Bryan for the heads up.
