Folks, There’s Nothing To See Here But A Brand New Bag of Shiny Balls

While the words in the title of this post have not been uttered by the President or his cronies yet, at this point, they might as well have been. Give Sean time folks, give him some time. Things are getting dicey so who knows what they will say or do next.

There are lots of glittery balls in the air these days with reporters batting them around like little puppies. A red one! A blue one! Will we get a yellow one? Oh, look this one has just been pumped full of fresh air! Sigh. It’s really rather unfortunate. I decided to recount some of my favorites below:

1) Not only did President Obama wiretap Trump Tower, but his behavior has also been much worse than that. The former President was so desperate to implicate Trump in something, he took the unusual step to scale Trump Tower donning a ski mask, with suction cups on his hands and feet, peering into the Trump family penthouse and snapping pictures in an attempt to get dirt. The former President turned up empty handed and the only thing he saw was Melania dancing with glee because she has yet to be forced to leave her gilded palace and move to the White House.

2) Last year, Hillary Clinton received questions from Donna Brazille before her debate with Trump – as President Trump continues to remind us. (As an aside, has anyone informed Trump she lost?) But that’s not the real scandal. The real scandal is that she will receive the debate questions in the 2020 election too, regardless as to whether or not she is a candidate. Because Hillary is a Clinton, she will then offer to sell the questions to whichever candidate is willing to pay the most for them. How do we know this? We know this because we know and the President will provide evidence of his knowledge into future events when he sees fit because that’s what he does.

3) Not only did Susan Rice “unmask” American’s partaking in dubious contacts with shady Russian folks, she also “unmasked” a man named Carl who pretended to be a caveman in one of the Scooby-Doo episodes. Oh, you didn’t know Scooby-Doo had a fifth character who was black? Well, that’s because the liberal media hasn’t reported the story. Susan Rice has been unmasking people for decades. Wait and see, this will be the scandal – if only the media would cover it!

So many scandals – so many untold stories! Look into – they are all true!

Also, for good measure and not to be forgotten – Tupac and Biggie are still alive and the Moon is made of cheese. I hear it’s a tasty Vermont cheddar. Let’s cover this too. Tweets and Fox News commentary are sure to follow.

Ok, I had to have a little fun with all of this, but the level of absurdity is off the charts. And as absurd as my version of the “news” is – is it really that absurd? Washington has gone completely off the rails. We have a President who will say anything and yet, when it counts, says nothing at all (see his Syria Press Conference today as an example). I mean is everyone taking shots of bong water and eating bath salts as appetizers?

Everyone needs to keep their eyes on the ball – one ball.  The ball is Russia and this White House, not a bunch of people out of office and out of power. Can we give the American electorate, the media, and our politicians a dose of Adderall. Pay attention!

It is worth repeating the following until everyone understands the gravity of the situation.

The FBI is investigating the sitting President and his pals for possible collusion with a foreign government in an attempt to sway an election through hacking and possibly other backroom deals and shenanigans. We are a democracy so it’s sort of a big deal to think an outside adversarial government had a favorite in the race and worked to get that person elected. It’s even a bigger deal if those same individuals knew about the plan and worked with the adversarial government.

We are a democracy, so it’s sort of a big deal to think an outside adversarial government had a favorite in the race and worked to get that person elected – to the detriment of the other candidate. It’s even a bigger deal if one of those campaigns knew about the plan and worked with an adversarial government against an American election.

Why the hell don’t more people care about this? If we don’t care about this as a country, then what’s the point of continuing this little democratic experiment? Let’s just let a handful of folks pick people to be President. Better yet, they don’t even have to be American to do the picking.

The FBI is also reportedly creating a separate unit that will continue looking into this issue, which would be a sign of an expanding investigation – not a shrinking one. A new connection to Russia is found almost daily. This is the story no matter how much certain folks allege Susan Rice apparently behaved like Gladys Kravitz from Bewitched for political purposes (if that is to be believed). Nevermind what her actual job was and why she would “unmask” someone.


President Trump can deny everything and call it “fake news.” Sean Spicer can tap dance until he is out of breath and red in the face. I mean, honestly, the man is going to beat-box next in an effort to deflect. Kellyanne can offer up alternative facts. Ivanka can be brought out to be pretty and say nice things about women. The Trump team can continue to razzle dazzle the populace until they catch wise, but there is always the chance they will catch wise! I mean people will catch wise. Maybe not everyone, but enough.

More importantly, where there is smoke there is usually fire and anytime someone repeatedly tells you, move along there is nothing to see here folks – there is probably something to see.


Leslie Knope for President

I have been late to the party in understanding the current sentiment of a sizeable chunk of the American electorate. The aversion to the establishment, facts, and being told what to do. The electorate is like a rebellious child. Being told no or what cannot be done, no matter how unreasonable or detrimental, is the worst thing ever.

But as we firmly cement ourselves into Trump’s America, I have gained an understanding. All the things I thought were important aren’t, or at least to enough people in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. We have proudly entered the age of the glorification of the unthinkable and the absurd. The more an action seems to defy what has been normal, the better.

Which brings me to my new love of Parks and Recreation. I was late to this party as well, my husband having sung the praises of this show for years while it was actually airing. But now that I have begun binge watching, I have totally fallen in love.

It is such a quirky and funny show. I just adore Leslie Knope and her eternal optimism and belief in government, which got me to thinking? Why can’t Leslie Knope be President? Don’t roll your eyes, I am as serious as Trump supporters who claim he is more moral than President Obama.

A thrice-married repeatedly bankrupt reality t.v. star, with zero government experience, is now the most powerful man in the world with access to the nuclear codes. This has motivated me to jump on the bandwagon of supporting the seemingly impossible. I am starting a petition. Leslie Knope in 2020! Hey, at least my candidate has been in government before – even if it was just a studio set.

Ok, you’re still rolling your eyes. Listen, I am not good at math, but this is all just as probable if not more so than Trump promising all those poor, unemployed downtrodden coal mine workers that he was bringing their jobs back. He squawked about it all campaign long and people fell for it, and other things. Why can’t people fall for Leslie Knope?

So I am starting a petition. Now, presumably, Amy Poehler will need to be willing to run as Leslie Knope and remain in character at all times. Who can convince her? Tina Fey maybe? Picture Leslie Knope on the phone with Putin or crushing on Canada’s Justin Trudeau? Imagine the great television!

You can’t tell me that this would be too far? The American electorate has just proven in this last election we can and will do anything. Nothing seems to be a bridge too far. No experience, no problem. A sexist pig, no problem. A racist, no problem. A pussy grabber, no problem. So why can’t we vote for an actress to remain in character as our President for four to eight years? We will have the added intrigue of never truly knowing what are Amy’s thoughts as Amy and Amy’s thoughts while thinking about what Leslie the character would do.

And we like shiny and new – so nothing would be more new and cutting edge than having an actress, playing a role, as our first female President. Sorry Hillary, it just wasn’t meant to be for you. God knows I love you, but those e-mails made you the worst thing since Lady Macbeth, so I have to move on to Plan B. For what it’s worth, before Kate McKinnon gave the world her best Mrs. Clinton, Amy Poehler did an awesome Hillary back in 2008 on Saturday Night Live – so in a weird way, Amy will bring Hillary with her in spirit. See, this all works!

But think about it, Amy Poehler has no government experience. Apparently, the less experience the better. Americans now like their Presidents inexperienced and ill prepared. It’s en vogue. Being President may be the hardest job on Earth, why would anyone need to be experienced?

But for those few people who care about experience, Leslie has experience. All of Leslie’s years at the Pawnee Parks Department, which is more government experience than the current President! A loyal civil servant always interested in doing the right thing. And to make it even more fun, Leslie should bring along the Parks and Recreation cast to fill her main cabinet posts. Hey, if we think Rex Tillerson will be tough as Secretary of State, that man will have nothing on Ron Swanson. What about slimy Tom Haverford as Treasury Secretary?

Lastly, what if with the transition of power from a Trump Presidency to a Knope Presidency, the mockumentary film style comes to the White House! How awesome would it be if we had that now? You know there are some wild conversations taking place in the Oval Office that we’re missing.

No, Mr. President, you can’t hang up on Angela Merkel even if you think she’s unattractive and a bitch. No, Mr. President, you can’t just build a wall, we have this thing called Congress and they give you funding. No, Mr. President, it is not a good thing if we have a new nuclear arms race.

Imagine being able to watch Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer chasing Trump around the Oval trying to snatch his phone so he can’t tweet. We are living through a Presidency via twitter, why not through a mockumentary in 2020?

A potential Knope Presidency brought to you by Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope has tons to offer the country. Entertainment is more important than policy we learned long ago and who better to entertain than a comedic actress of Ms. Poehler’s talents? I think I have proved my case and solved the problem for the Democrats. Now, all we have to decide is who we can get to run with her for Vice-President?





King Trump on the Throne

Can President Obama come back?  What about George H.W. Bush? I know he is 92, but he is still of sound mind and served in various levels of government. I’ll take him. Fine, America – no Hillary, but what about Bill? I’ll even take Dubya. I’ll take George W. Bush, which is really saying something. I miss the man who once said, “hispanically speaking” – so that tells you we are in dire straights.

Alas, it has been a little over a week since the Great Clementine ascended to the throne. King Trump and his court have been busy, giving us a glimpse of the horror show we can look forward to for the next four or worse eight years! We shouldn’t be surprised, Trump has been telegraphing he thinks he’s King ever since he gave the world a glimpse into that gold and gaudy imitation Versailles on 5th Avenue.

If we didn’t know it before, we learned the King and his team has a propensity to lie. We’ve heard about alternative facts from Kellyanne Conway. The administration continued to shovel alternative facts to the American people about rampant voter fraud (lie). Crowd sizes at Trump’s inauguration (still lying – just can’t let that one go).  And in an interview with David Muir – the King informed the American people of his affinity and belief in torture and that it works (more lies). Wait, can I say that? Am I still allowed to call a lie a lie without fear of the guillotine?

Wait, this is still a democracy with a right of freedom of speech enshrined in its constitution, right? There was no coronation on January 20th, even if the current President seems to believe we had one. Those darn alternative facts keep getting in the way! Just because he and his minions say something is true, doesn’t make it so. So, I shall continue with my truthful snark without fear.

Oh, what else happened in week one inside the Trump Kingdom?

Poor Sean Spicer, his Press Secretary, was trotted out to dispense and defend the lies of the day – no matter how outrageous or evenly disproven. He, like Kellyanne, remains in training at the devil’s workshop. However, unlike Kellyanne, who has learned to lie without flinching,  Mr. Spicer still struggles. With Mr. Spicer, you can still see his wheels spinning as he tries to weave his lies to the Press Corps – so there was some back peddling where he was concerned. He couldn’t commit to the Voter Fraud lie for instance. The poor soul seems nervous about the whole thing – as if he hasn’t completely ditched his conscience in the nearest trash heap.

We learned through those pesky liberal media sources, The Washington Post and New York Times that our President personally applied pressure to the Parks Department to show, presumably, alternative facts in photographs. If he proclaimed it enough, his inauguration crowd really would be YUGE. News of that “gentle pressure” being applied by the King, I mean President, leaked and no alternative photographs were produced. Has it really come to this?

We also learned that the Administration required a media blackout of all Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) employees. That was rescinded after some outrage, but because we now have a bipolar government, it may be back in effect this upcoming week – who knows.

We also had a flurry of Executive Orders from the President. Does anyone remember when Republicans were outraged about these orders? OUTRAGED – shout that like Oprah Winfrey used to scream YOU GET A CAR, AND YOU GET A CAR! They were so outraged about President Obama’s Executive Orders and “overreach” there were rumblings in some more ridiculous conservative corners that they were impeachable offensives. Eh, that outrage was soo last year.

I guess we really are going to build Trump’s wall – presumably out of donated Legos and Lincoln Logs because no one is going to pay for this nonsense.  Mexico keeps telling us as diplomatically as possible to f-off and that they will be damned if they’re going to pay for it. If they don’t pay for it (as they shouldn’t), that would be a break of a campaign promise by Mr. Trump – and yet another lie.

Aren’t the American people embarrassed by now? I know I am, I am practically hiding under my duvet cover as I type this.

So since Mexico won’t pay for it, it was rumored the President was considering a 20% tax on goods from Mexico, but then some adult in the room explained that would essentially end up being a tax on the American people. They backed off that plan for now.

By week’s end, we received another hastily non-thought out Executive Order that created chaos throughout America’s airports and revealed the worst in the American character. Millions of people were banned, and we were told it was for our safety (most likely false).

There was a lot of news, and this certainly was not all of it. What will week two bring for America and the world? I for one am not sure, but I doubt it will be anything good. We all need to keep our eyes peeled wide open, for the Liar-in-Chief is busy. I wonder if he is making time for tanning or if all this plotting to screw over the American public and seek revenge for his oh so aggrieved working-class voters precludes him from having the time to do that. I guess that could be one good thing that comes out of all this!

And as this week began, we had yet another Executive Order, but this one was stylized like a sale at Macy’s. A two for one deal in regards to regulations. “One in, two out order” is what we’re calling it.

The President may be failing at being presidential, but he is a brilliant marketer. He could sell his own feces to a particular segment of the American people, and they’d eat it up like Godiva chocolate. Everything and everyone gets a glossy meaningless slogan. Everything sounds good. Tomorrow he will be talking like Dr. Seuss, “one fish, two fish red fish, blue fish,”  when announcing his next decree. Will anyone notice if it doesn’t make sense? Although, considering the education level of some of his supporters, probably makes sense to talk like that. Ok, that wasn’t kind, I take that back (sort of).

You know I am actually for making things easier for businesses, but tell me what regulation specifically needs to be rescinded. Some regulations are good. Talk to me about the specific rule causing a loss of jobs and productivity. But the President won’t do that, it’s too much work and requires too much governing. To me, this is all code for allowing business to essentially do what they please and in sectors that affect the environment, for instance, I don’t see how that is good for the country.

The King has ascended to the throne, and he is on a mission – facts, kindness, decorum, or rationality be damned. Heaven help us.



Trump and the Villification of Muslims

Because President Trump campaigned to make America safe again, he signed an Executive Order banning all citizens from Saudi Arabia entering the United States, as 15 out of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 came from that country. Also, because of years of mass shootings primarily committed by white men, the Trump Administration moved to round up those found to be lonely, reclusive, weird, and “wacky.” The concern being that white men seem to have a tendency to shoot up high schools, elementary schools, black churches, and movie theaters  – among other things.

Oh, wait, that didn’t happen. All of that would be silly and not a real solution. But in keeping with doing things that don’t solve problems, the President actually signed an Executive Order that bans entry from seven Muslim-majority countries – Iran, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Libya, Sudan, and Yemen which is even sillier than the fake news I outlined in the first paragraph.

The thing about Trump and his Administration is that they are bratty children throwing a tantrum on the world’s stage. We have left uneducated children who think they know everything in charge of the Executive Branch. So on Friday, we received a bunch of theater, meaningless hullaballoo and another  Executive Order, an especially vile one, for the cameras to see – banning Muslims – supposedly to make America safer. He was so gleeful in the signing of this order, I was waiting for him to beat his chest.

Trump and that apprentice of the devil, Kellyanne Conway, can call it what they want, but it is a small down payment on his pledge to ban Muslims – period. Yes, they didn’t ban all Muslims, only some so I suppose that is meant to make it less abominable, right? There was excitement over the weekend about a New York judge temporarily blocking the order, but that only applied to people already here and stranded at the airport – not the entire Executive Order.

As an aside, if I have to see this peeled cantaloupe, as my friend calls him, proudly signing orders like he is Henry VIII one more time I might scream. I thought Republicans hated Executive Orders.

Who is going to tell the King that the majority of these attacks on our soil have been conducted by American citizens? Was this information not in his briefings? Was he too busy tweeting? Too busy fighting with Alec Baldwin? Too busy insulting Meryl Streep? Too busy applying pressure to the Parks Department to find “alternative” photographs showing his YUGE crowd size at the inauguration? Who is going to explain to the President that ISIS is an ideology, spread on the internet and that people already within the United States have been, and can be, radicalized?

He talked about totally defeating ISIS in his inauguration speech and, to be fair, Obama talked in the same absurd terms regarding ISIS. American President’s tend to talk in sweeping terms about threats, but smart people know that one might be able to defeat an occupying army, but you can never defeat an ideology – what’s in the hearts and minds of people.

Are we going to ban French nationals too as some of the recent attacks in that country  were conducted by radicalized citizens? What about Germans? What about banning people from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, or the United Arab Emirates? I believe there were some 9/11 ties there. Oh, wait, it’s being reported Trump has some business interests there so they can’t make the list.

In voting for this man, the American people have unleashed a rabid dog on their fellow citizens and the world. He is irrational, angry, lacks impulse control, and is uncontainable – except in regards to Russia. Vladimir Putin must be holding some sort button to an invisible electric shock collar around Trump’s neck because Trump is oddly quiet, polite, and non-offensive related to all things Russian.

At the end of the day, I don’t believe we should be banning millions of people outright of any country. If the United States is in such a state of fear and unable to vet people, maybe we shouldn’t allow anyone to come into the country, as clearly there are threats from many, many areas of the globe.

I like reality television (don’t judge me), and since we have our first reality television President, it is important to point out a constant on all of those shows, especially the most appalling. Turn on Love and Hip Hop, Marriage Bootcamp, or The Real Housewives of Fill in the City of Your Choice, for instance, the casts are filled with self-important people, usually doing crappy things.

They’re bad husbands and wives, bad business partners, disloyal friends, etc. They are usually all the things we would teach our children not to be. Even though they themselves can go back and see their own bad behavior at all times, the footage is always there, these people rarely believe any of their actions create the drama or causes problems, it’s always someone or something else. They are also abnormally confident in their own behavior and decisions and, of course, being right.

Filling a television program with people like that and then allowing cameras to roll sets the stage for great conflict and drama. It can be tons of fun to watch when you’re just talking about boozy wealthy women with nothing else better to do than to lunch and gossip.

In the past, American’s looked at these sort of people, shook their heads while being entertained and went about their lives. In 2016, the American public chose to elect one of these people to the highest office in the land.

Call him a rabid dog, a stupid peeled cantaloupe, or a reality tv star President, he is dangerous and woefully unfit for this position. His words matter. His poorly thought out Executive Orders matter.

I am ashamed to be witness to this ban and hope an adult in the room convinces the King to change course for the sake of those people, America’s reputation and, yes, our safety – because this action does not make us safer.

Uh, this man makes me so disgusted I had to write on a Sunday!

“Alternative Facts” – as taught by Kellyanne Conway

President Petty took time away from his new presidential duties to squabble about the size of his inauguration crowds over the weekend. Jesus take the wheel and drive fast, must this shallow and thin-skinned man go down this rabbit hole?

As the title of President does not seem appropriate for such an unserious man, I may call Trump President Petty from this day forward. But seriously, the newly elected 45th President of the United States was concerned about crowd size. Not jobs. Not terrorism. Not reading the constitution. No, crowd size. Where is the adult in the room to say yo, dude, you won – you have the power now shut up. Why do you care about this? Don’t reduce yourself and the office to this.

That person is supposed to be that wretched being, Kellyanne Conway Vampiress, and Stealer of Souls. Listen, I think most view politicians and political folks as worst than mud underneath their feet, but Kellyanne is a special kind of vile. She is a walking oil slick. She will look you in the eye and lie to you about what you just saw and not flinch or skip a beat. Your name is Bob and she’ll tell you to your face it’s Tom. By the time you’re done arguing with the devil’s apprentice you may walk away second guessing yourself. Slippery and down and dirty – you always need a bath after allowing her to come through your television screen. She must be even worse in person.

This weekend this soulless carbon being slithered about the Sunday morning news programs and tried to teach America about “alternative facts.” My forhead is sore from the number of slaps I inflicted upon it. Fortunately, most of us went to grade school where we all learned the difference between facts, opinions, and lies – or, excuse me, non-factual statements.

President Obama’s crowds for his inauguration were larger than President Petty’s – fact. The Woman’s March in D.C. over the weekend drew more people and by a lot – fact. Pictures tell the story. Figures from the D.C. Metro tell the story. The Park Service tell the story. But because facts are disposable and ever changing in Trump’s America, the Vampiress was trotted out to convince us of “alternative facts” and to tell us that we didn’t see what we saw. This, by the way, seems to be a scary theme emerging out of Trumpland – the gaslighting of America. You didn’t see what you just saw. You didn’t hear what you just heard. Don’t question us about the appalling thing you just saw or heard, if you do there will be hell to pay.

This, by the way, seems to be a scary theme emerging out of Trumpland – the gaslighting of America. You didn’t see what you just saw. You didn’t hear what you just heard. Don’t question us about the appalling thing you just saw or heard, if you do there will be hell to pay. Nothing to see here folks. Just nod and smile like Melania and we will all get along.

At the end of the day, this is dumb. It’s extraordinarily silly. President Obama is gone. The power lies with Trump and his cartel of stooge billionaires and soulless White House staff. He has the power and should begin to govern (scary thought) like a real leader – whether a million people came out to see him, or just one.  Instead, he is still in celebrity mode pouting about who is more popular essentially. Who had better television ratings? Who had more people? Dude, who cares!

But the new President is so sensitive, so desperate to be loved and liked that he has to stoop to lying and pushes his staff out to attempt to mislead the American people about things that don’t really matter.

What on God’s green Earth are “alternative facts?” Facts are facts – they really don’t have alternatives. And while everything seems to be malleable with these people, sane people cannot buy into this jello pudding version of the concept of truth. Facts and truth matter. They are essential to a successful and progressing democracy.

Americans should be alarmed that we have an administration so willing to lie about things we can plainly see – and such silly things at that.

If President Petty, Sean Spicer, and the evilest of them all – the Vampiress Kellyanne Conway – are willing to lie about this, something so trivial, what else will they lie about?

Can Trump Pass the Class?

Let us take a moment to think of the presidency as a class with a lengthy syllabus. The President-elect, unfortunately, has been a piss poor student failing to take notes, ask proper questions, or to keep quiet when smarter people are talking.

Thus far, the President-elect has failed his assignments on statesmanship, the U.S. Constitution, the role of the media, and not pissing off China among other topics. We also can add U.S. Intelligence Agencies to this list of failed assignments. The final of this course is on January 20th – will he be prepared to pass the test and class and be sworn in – with some level of preparation for the office? Stay tuned for next week’s episode of The Pussy Grabbing Reality TV Star President. Wait, I may be ahead of myself and the country. Is it too soon to publicly acknowledge that the Executive Branch is only a few degrading steps away from being a tawdry reality show?  He has enough exes and kids and feuds with plenty of people after all. Maybe in 2018, we can acknowledge that a vote for him was also a vote to degrade the presidency. I have digressed, let’s get back to class.

The President-elect is the kid in class who hates Algebra and thinks it’s dumb, nonimportant, and refuses to do his homework because he is unable to comprehend the subject. His inadequateness somehow morphs into an indictment on the subject, in this case, the intelligence agencies because the lesson being taught is that Russia wanted Trump to be elected and attempted to aid in that cause. To be clear, no one is saying Trump won because of Russian hacking.

To ensure success in the endeavor of a Hillary Clinton defeat, I personally like to thank w thank the FBI, the media, third party voters and some of Clinton’s own missteps for that. But the fact remains the hacking happened, and it should alarm every citizen. The man-child does not like that.

Yes, we have elected a child, but not just any chid – he’s Macaulay Culkin in The Good Son. He’s manipulative and treacherous, and it’s all fun and games until he’s trying to push you off a cliff. I am afraid the “person” going off the cliff will be this country and our values. And, to be clear, I am sure our country will be here (well, there is the issue of those pesky nukes – and the President-elect seemed to fail that lesson too). We will survive the Age of Trump. I am just not sure how America will look, how much damage there will be to the institutions that make our democracy healthy when this experiment into populist folly is complete.

When I started this blog, my  intention was not to make this an anti-Trump blog, as that’s no fun and I didn’t plan to write about him all the time. Plus, I assumed at some point he would have to show some interest in acting like a President. I was as wrong about that as I was the inevitability of Hillary Clinton being elected. He makes it so damn hard for me not to write about him. The extraordinary level of absurdity can’t be passed up for comment.

As another day comes to a close and we weather more Trump insanity, I hope that the Vampiress and Stealer of Souls Kellyanne Conway is in her lair plotting a way to educate the great petulant one on the importance of intelligence and briefings. After all, after Pussygate she was supposedly responsible for reigning him in during the last week of the election. He stayed on message and stopped talking about Mexicans and Muslims. Maybe she can get him to stop cracking on American intelligence too.

She must tell him by so publicly refuting the findings of our intelligence agencies, all 17 of them, he’s siding with Russia. And while I understand  Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house – it is not another state or friendly territory – it’s a foreign government! A foreign government that may be amenable to business with the President-elect and his associates, but not agreeable to the policy objectives of the government that he was elected to lead. There are American values to uphold. The Capitol and The White House are not in Moscow. Can we purchase him a map too Kellyanne? Damn it  Kellyanne do your job and force him to stop tweeting and to get to his studies! I know the Vampiress has the power to get this done!

Kellyanne must explain that a President relies on intelligence, that Americans are putting their lives on the line for this information, that he must weigh it, must discern its importance, and keep some opinions and beliefs to himself. The President-elect has to learn this lesson now. We, as a country, don’t have time to send our future President to summer school. The evidence suggests he cannot pass the class and with no summer school, it looks like we’re screwed.
