A Day In The Anti-Life - Small Men!
The "Chattering Class" is fascinated with itself and chief among its number are the denizens of the White House press corp. Since they often conflate what is of key interest to them with what is of key interest to the majority of the country, they spend way too much time talking about personalities in and around the shadows of the White House. An analysis of a lapse in the President's responsibility to communicate with the public is transformed into a battle of personalities and overlong and overwrought talk about who is up and down in the "People's House". The stature of Shawn Spicer is in particular discussed and he seems at this juncture to have been disappeared totally. The blow up with a reporter a few days ago seems emblematic of the breakdown.
Likewise our current "So-Called" President has diminished those who serve at his pleasure by demanding public kowtows such as the recent obsequious Cabinet meeting in which the participants were one-by-one called upon to praise the "Leader". Such behavior is grotesque and embarrassing for Americans, especially Americans who tout liberty and evoke the Founders, characters who were far from ass-kissers of the their government. The swoon of Congress too has belittled them as their avarice and clear intention to suspend all objections and move forward on a healthcare plan that is likely to gut the party. They are willing to cut loose their moral compasses for the simple fact that such brazen cuts are necessary to get the tax cut their one-percenter masters demand.
And so the era of Trump has in exceedingly fast order diminished much of what was once held out as worthy. Public discourse is diminished, public service is demeaned, and our illustrious history is belittled as the lives of those who have come before and defended this land are disregarded. Their sacrifice is forgotten as the powers-that-be publicly suck the cock of the man who would be king.
UPDATE: As if to prove my point today long after I'd posted this item our "so-called" President tweeted this.
