Policy Time = Executive Time = Teevee Time

More Exciting News From Trump HQ!

This is one of the saddest things I’ve ever read about a US president: his aides turn to Fox News and try to plant stories so he will pay attention to their advice:

“Some aides, convinced that Trump puts more stock in what he sees on TV than in his own aides’ advice, regularly phone prominent commentators and news hosts to provide talking points on everything from tax policy to Syria in hopes of influencing Trump.

“Similar strategies have also been embraced by foreign governments and outside groups trying to sway the president’s thinking.”

    More proof that Comrade Preznint Stupid (R-Moral Turpitude) is a clear and present danger.

  2. Well we had eight years of a supremely qualified, competent president who dragged the country away from total financial ruin and into the 21st century, with the dead anchor weight of a reactionary white supremacist opposition, surely we had to experiment with electing a mindless drooling fuckwit just to make sure it was a bad idea to elect a mindless drooling fuckwit, I guess.

    Did you see the story about where Trump threw up his prepared notes? That’s an old trick used by professionals. You SAY you aren’t going to give the prepared remarks, but “speak from the heart” then you just give your prepared, “speak from the heart” speech. The rubes love it!

    As my comedy coach used to say, ‘The best ad libs are created in advance!”

    Trump, Idiot savant, with emphasis on the idiot part.

      That was what we learned in Improv Class, too. It was all about getting the scenario into bits we already had prepped.
