UPDATED: What The F*** Is The Matter With Him?

It blows.

“I think now, with what’s happened with the hurricane, I’m gonna ask for a speed up,” he said. “I wanted a speed up anyway, but now we need it even more so. So we need to simplify the tax code, reduce taxes very substantially on the middle class, and make our business tax more globally competitive. We’re the highest anywhere in the world right now.”

Dude, taxes and hurricanes have no relationship whatsoever. This is even beneath YOU, and that’s a low bar.

UPDATE 1: Oh, gawd, no:

“They are really — if you talk about branding, no brand has improved more than the United States Coast Guard.”

A) Who was talking about branding?, and
2. The USCG is a goddam branch of the US Military DHS (thanks Crooks and Liars!)

Comrade Preznint Stupid gives shallow a bad name.

  1. Of course the Opposite is true. Taxes are what should pay for reconstruction.
    And for FEMA and infrastructure rebuilding.
    He wants to push through breaks because people can see now why they are necessary.

    If he thinks he can simplify the tax code before his impeachment, he is crazy.

      I was about to make the same comment but we need to realize that Trump has absolutely no idea what Mulvaney put in his never-going-to-get-passed-anyway FY18 budget just like his approach to governance is random tweets and outrageous slogans.

    The Coast Guard rebranding is going great, big league, and Irma is set to get the best TV rating ever. We can’t wait until Sweeps Week.

    My only consolation with Mara lago not getting a direct hit is that it mighty be a teeny bit tougher for Drumpf to defraud FEMA this time.

    I think you might missing the point a little bit, TG.

    Nobody is talking about branding. US culture is beyond that now, and modernity in general is not far behind.
    Talking about branding is unnecessary.

    The reason is that everyone native born in the US (except for some old farts who didn’t even see a TV until they were in their late teens or beyond, and who have never had one in their home) have been marinated in increasingly sophisticated branding messaging since they were in the crib. The last couple of generations, especially those whose parents used TV as a babysitter, were exposed to this for many hours per day at precisely the most sensitive and receptive period in their biological development.

    It’s how most Americans think, and such is the success of the messaging that they think about everything in terms of branding without knowing that’s what they’re doing.

    It’s the reason most people can instantly identify scores if not hundreds of corporate logos, but perhaps only two or three trees or wild flowers and no more than a half dozen birds. It’s why most can recite godknowshowmany advertising jingles verbatim (“two all-beef patties etc etc), but can’t remember what comprises the Bill of Rights or distinguish between passages from the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

    Trump understands this top to bottom. Not intellectually, but preternaturally and instinctively. Some of the people he’s appointed to ride herd on various parts of our government architecture understand it too, both intellectually and instinctively.

    When the corporate trappings of consumption-driven capitalism become the primary educational tool for the young, you get a kind cultural soil particularly suited to sprouting fascism.
    Think about it.
    What else should we expect?
    What else could possibly happen?
