Hysterical Media Headlines (Funny or Absurd) for August 16th:
Bottom Line: These are your daily headlines brought to you by your friends in the Godless, soulless and slanderous news media...For my full commentary on these headlines click the audio below.
- If Trump sabotages Obamacare, premiums will spike an extra 25 percent by 2020, CBO warns Dan Mangan CNBC
Trump's America Is Not Mine Richard Cohen, Washington Post
Excerpt: I never thought a president of the United States would hedge his bets when it comes to denouncing racists and anti-Semites.
The 'Many Sides' of Trump's Moral Rot Paul Waldman, The American Prospect
Excerpt: He can't even bring himself to pretend to oppose white supremacists and neo-Nazis—and every Republican who supported him is culpable.
As we stand back in wonder at just what a repugnant human being now sits in the Oval Office, we need to keep reminding ourselves that his sins (of both omission and commission) are not his alone. Many Republicans have stepped up to disagree with him about whether neo-Nazis and white supremacists are actually worthy of condemnation, which we should acknowledge. Yet Donald Trump's moral stench covers all who endorsed him, all who have defended him, and all who saw him as the vehicle through which they could achieve their own goals. They can take the brave stance that Nazis are bad, but they helped bring us to this point, and they can't wash away their responsibility for the horrors we now witness with a few tweets.
The material here is amazing and wonderful in it's absurdity simultaneously. Once again, if you look at these through the prism of Donald Trump being President, and more elected Republicans serving in the United States since the 1920's...it's pretty hilarious! The air of desperation, advocacy and instructions for their "resistance" is comical. These people really do take themselves completely seriously!
