backwards

Donald Trump is clearly unhinged and I am having trouble understanding anyone who can look past his juvenile antics and still support him. The latest ruckus involves accusing Obama of wire tapping Trump Tower with no basis in reality. Even the FBI director emphatically insists that this is a falsehood.

All of this is probably an attempt to deflect attention away from the Russia scandal which continues to plague this psychotic administration. My wager is that eventually a smoking gun will be found where back room deals were made in exchange for helping this dysfunctional narcissist to gain power.

I would have more ease knowing that an adult was in charge and now the likes of Mitt Romney or John McCain would look awfully good compared to the sitting president.

Indeed we now have concrete proof that you need neither grace, class and most importantly previous experience to gain power. In this age of information we can be bamboozled by means of fabricating an image which is then echoed by others from your clan; which also helps explain the hallucinatory poll results among his base.

How I miss the days when being a reporter was a serious profession and to be Woodward and Bernstein you had to learn your craft. Interestingly they helped bring down the presidency of a much more qualified politician, albeit one with a draconian and paranoid bent.

Little did we know that in the years since progress would take us backwards.

Needless to say, comedians and social critics like John Oliver are just having a field day with all of this...
