Even if you’re not politically-inclined this one should still stir something in you.
Even if it’s only disgust.
#91: US President Donald Trump.
To begin with, for those of you who are still here, this post is not an endorsement of American President Donald J. Trump, nor am I condemning him. No, this is just your ole buddy, The Hook, pointing out an irrefutable fact.
From the second he announced his presidential run – which was more like a political wildfire – Donald Trump made the US political scene (and the world) the most exciting place in the Multiverse.
He banged a porn star. Stormy Daniels said she hated it and that she wasn’t attracted to Trump at all. And yet, she admits no one forced her to engage in said coitus. I thought you only had sex with people you didn’t like when there was a paycheck involved, Stormy?
People assume he wants to “Stormy” his daughter, Ivanka. I don’t know about that, but all I’ll say is that they have the oddest, ickiest father/daughter relationship in pop culture history.
He lies so much his pants are now woven out of asbestos.
The environment isn’t high on his list of priorities (to say the very least). Why save the planet when you can create your own Space Force to ferry you off to Mars when you’ve turned Earth into an uninhabitable ball of gas? And speaking of space… there’s actually a branch of the United States military called Space Force?
Space Force sounds like an Eighties toy line. “Collect the entire Space Force line, kids! Now with Captain Dirk Comet and his space monkey, Beppo!”
Networks like CNN and Fox News have become a pale shadow of what they once were, preferring to focus on destroying the Trump administration rather than maintaining their objectivity. And souls. Honestly, my family watches CNN and Don Lemon every day – but only to see what angle they’re going to attack from. I hate the term “Fake News” but it’s perfect for this age of media absurdity.
The media’s collective rampant bias has overshadowed any and all of President Trump’s economic victories, of which there have actually been many. Yes, Wall Street has been reeling for months from insane highs and lows, but overall the American economy has been doing better than it did under the Obama administration.
In spite of that the world continues to feel the shock waves of Trump’s unique leadership style.
Donald Trump plans on selling billions of dollars in weapons to a prince that had an American journalist tortured and killed on foreign soil and his response to the world’s outrage? “Well, we don’t want that money going to Russia or China, do we?”
I could go on and on ad infinitum but I don’t really need to, do I? The fact is, there’s a new development every day. The Trump presidency is the gift that keeps on giving.
Why would you want to miss all this delicious chaos? To some these are the End Days. To me they are the Days of Discovery, days that will force us to examine who we really are and what we stand for.
Thank you, President Trump, for giving us all a reason to get out of bed every day.
See you in the lobby, friends…
