We Deserve The President We Got

"It's very easy to be presidential."

In watching the press fawn over Trump’s performance in front of Congress, I wondered how collective journalistic amnesia could have so suddenly swept over even progressive journalists and pundits. I’m not talking about just “lowering the bar,” I’m talking about Trump himself telling us exactly how he would execute his con a year ago in Waterbury, Connecticut. He’s like a three-card monte swindler who tells us exactly how he’s going to take our money and yet we still reach for our wallets. It’s actually kind of breathtaking. However, if we don’t wise up and stay wised up, every June 14th, we’ll all have to stop what we’re doing at precisely noon, raise our right hand toward Washington and pledge allegiance to the Donald (June 14th is his birthday).
