Dumb and Dumber

On a daily basis, Donald Trump and Sean Spicer seem to be a come-to-life version of Jim Carey and Jeff Daniel's characters in "Dumb and Dumber."

Donald Trump spouts his lies, half-truths or just plain incompetent rantings and Sean Spicer takes up the mantle to defend, explain, promote or otherwise try to provide legitimacy to the outright BS from the psuedo Commander-in-Chief.

It is hard to believe we are in this situation in America. I have said before and will say again, how Donald Trump was elected is beyond my capacity to understand. Never in my adult life have I seen government in such a state of disarray and total chaos.  If people wanted change, they changed the wrong thing. They should have gotten rid of a do-nothing Congress and the party of no. Instead, we have Republican incompetents who whined about Obama Care for 6 years and when given the chance to change it proved they hadn't even put together a plan for a viable alternative to replace it. They weren't for anything, they were just against anything Obama did.

Unfortunately, we will probably be stuck in this morass for three more years. Until then, we can be entertained by the sequel to Dumb and Dumber with Trump and Spicer.

Republican Hypocrisy

Trey Gowdy - Partisan Pitbull of the Republcan Junkyard
Republican Hypocrisy is Pathetic

It is absolutely amazing to me the level of  hypocrisy and phoniness of the Republican Party.  Imagine for a minute if Hillary Clinton had been elected president and appointed her totally inexperienced son-in-law and daughter as special advisors to the president and given them the roles and authority Donald Trump has given Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.  Trey Gowdy the partisan pitbull of the Republican junk yard would have been red-faced and having convulsions at the outrageous criminal conduct of President Hillary Clinton. You can bet he would have already initiated more of his fraudulent Congressional Committee hearings to produce self-aggrandizing headlines for himself and to create a new witch hunt to bring Hillary Clinton down. I can't think of anyone who has more thoroughly abused the power of his office or wasted more tax dollars to pursue a vicious, malicious personal crusade than Gowdy has. He represents the worst of politicians and the worst of the Republican Party.

Conspicuously silent on this topic however are Democrats who just seem to accept Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner as appointments within the power of the President and have apparently just decided to let it go without challenge.  It is ludicrous that both born to rich parents and inherited businesses are considered brilliant minds that can solve the world's toughest problems. Never mind they haven't had one day's experience in the public sector or had the training, education or experience demanded of such critical roles.

Unfortunately, this is the new America we live in. Gross incompetence in the White House led by a compulsive, pathological liar that has no integrity, ethics and is an amoral slug. Unbridled arrogance drives everything Trump does because he now sees he can destroy anyone who opposes him and his followers could care less about truth, facts or consequences of his reckless behavior.

You asked for it America and you got it.  I for one am embarrassed and ashamed of what this country has become and the pathetic buffoon who serves as President.
