One of the many amazing things about the Trump Presidency (besides learning that comedians holding up fake severed heads of the President is not violent rhetoric, put posting gifs of with the President’s head and the CNN logo superimposed on wrestlers is a core-shaking threat to the Republic) is how fast the news cycle is.
Less than twenty fours ago, there were stories about how Donald Trump Jr (hereinafter DJ Trump) may or may not have met with Russians who may or may not have had incriminating evidence against Hillary Clinton. The hot takes on social media were at about a 9 responding to it.
I was in the midst of my take when DJ Trump decided to turn it up to 11.
I posted this H L Mencken quote before the election. I think it is fitting to post it again in light of DJ Trump’s actions:
As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
And it is equally important to remind everyone, Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and the mainstream media still couldn’t beat the man being advised by the likes of Manafort, Stone, and DJ Trump.
