It's sadden me THIS has become the state of news
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
But, the media has a great track record of making mountains out of molehills. If the president farts, does that have great significance? OMG, the president farted. Was it a bean fart, or a cabbage fart? Did he do it in the presence of our allies or enemies? Was he talking on the phone at the time? perhaps he's allergic to Putin, and so that made him fart while talking on the phone with him. Does the president like cabbages? If so, or just if someone even speculates that he does, then the cabbage industry has a launch point for a million dollar ad campaign. Millions could be gained or lost on a presidential fart, after all. If it's a bean fart, was it navy beans or pintos? If it's pintos, does that mean he's pro Mexico? Maybe it means he likes illegals from there. It must, or he wouldn't eat pinto beans and fart while talking on the phone to Mexico.
and on and on. Much ado about nothing.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
