The WaPo gives Squiggy the affirmation that Daddy won’t (On page A1 no less!):
“President Trump was watching Fox News Channel with aides in his private dining room off the Oval Office recently when Donald Trump Jr. flashed across the giant flat screen. ‘Don’s gotten really good,’ Trump said, according to someone who was present. ‘My people love him.’
“The remark suggested a swell of unexpected pride from Trump about his namesake son, whose relationship with his father has been difficult at times but who has emerged as the president’s political alter ego and an in-demand campaign celebrity ahead of November’s midterm elections.”
Republican strategist Mike Murphy: “In a normal Republican universe … a guy like Don Jr. … would be very problematical … But in the new Trump universe, with different laws of gravity, every campaign is seen as just a big Republican primary.”
David Bossie, Trump’s former deputy campaign manager: “He is fundamentally educating the American people that we must have a Republican House in November, because the alternatives are first and foremost the impeachment of his father.”
Cliff Sims, a former White House and Trump campaign staffer: “Don is a chip off the old block … He’s a savage on Twitter and a force of nature on the stump.”
The puffery followed on the heels of the WaPo’s story about the Instagram post that the young shitheel stepped in, so, you know BALANCE!
Over the weekend everyone everywhere has explained all the ways in which this graphic is doctored and incorrect, so we won’t bore you with what you already know. The Instagram story shows us the many ways that Squiggy is dishonest (if not Eric-level stupid), so of course the WaPo was going to put up some puffery, you know, to make up for it.
Squiggy Trump will likely be under indictment soon enough, so the question of his honesty becomes something more interesting than the question of his Photoshopping skills.
But the real question will be if he does get indicted will Comrade Trump still be proud of Squiggy? Or will be be under the bus too/also?
500 Quatloos Squiggy will be under the bus. After all, he made it to page A1. Prznint Stupid hates a grandstander.
