David Waldman presents a special Total Exasperation Friday KITM.
A new Trump book with old news is out: A Very Stable Genius reports that Donald Trump is incompetent and narcissistic. That was actually news when Washington Post reporters Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig first noted it. Now they report it about a year later, although in a book you have to purchase, instead of paying to read on the Post’s page. After citing only a couple of excerpts, David declares his admiration of Trump, disdain of the military, recognition of the deep state, hails Trump’s electoral college victory, scoffs at the constitution, calls for a coup, and urges us to just ignore him from now on... Why so sardonic?
Well, because, generally people are idiots. So, Donald Trump’s poop politics might just be the ticket for him. After all, what good is even the best satire against an administration that selects Jeffrey Epstein’s defense team, Ken Starr and Alan Dershowitz to represent the president? Trump spells GAO “GOA”, says they got it backwards, then tells us Dershowitz backs him up on this, leaving only David to straighten it all out.
Forget that apothegm about judging books by their covers, Matt Gaetz is 100% what he looks like.
