Sunday Morning Week in Review

David Smith gives us a succinct review below of Trump's disastrous week.

Notice I didn't type "...a succinct review of THE MOST disastrous week," because we surely know that Trump will outdo last week's chaotic catastrophies and bring more shame to America.

An "Anonymous" left a comment in my moderation folder that whined "Trump IS NOT A DISASTER!" That poor deluded partisan hack probably believes now that General Kelly is the new Chief of Staff, Trump will become "more presidential." That poor deluded partisan hack is the reason we have what Mark Sumner of the Daily Kos calls a "Proctocracy:   Government by, for, and of assholes."

NOTE: P.E. will no longer censor vulgar words that are found in columns or opinion pieces, since our so-called "POTUS" has appointed the ultimate vulgarian, Scaramucci, and therefore has given his imprimatur for dragging our once great country into the Trumpian sewer.

Here's David Smith of The Guardian:

"In five torrid days, the US president alienated conservatives by savaging his own attorney general; earned a rebuke from the Pentagon over a rushed ban on transgender troops; watched impotently as the Senate dealt a crushing blow to his legislative agenda with the fall of healthcare reform; ousted Priebus; and threw a human grenade – the new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci – into his already dysfunctional White House."

Worst Week So Far...

Donal Trump's weak week.

Well, the wingnuts can't say they weren't warned. During the campaign we and even some Republicans pointed out that this guy is basically an orangutan with Tourette's syndrome and electing him would create a huge mess. The huge mess is now all around us, and the Trumpanzees (like your Anonymous) are left with nothing but dogged reality-denial.

You're right that Trump is certainly capable of generating even bigger blunders. Indeed, he's already working on it by attacking the three Republican Senators who voted against "skinny repeal". If he delivers the final straw that triggers a few party switches, he might just manage to flip the Senate to us without even having to wait for November next year.

Newsflash... The winvnuts were not listening during the campaign, haven't listened the prior six months, are not listening now, and, it IS likely they will NEVER listen.

Those who do not listen cannot learn.

News reports showed Susan Collins returning to Maine to spontaneous applause in the airport. She said this hasn't happened to her once in her 20 years as a Senator.

Indeed Deanter, indeed.
