Donald Trump's Chinese Toy


I just watched Margaret Brennan's interview on Face The Nation with Attorney General (emphasis on "general") Barr and I am still shaking my head. The man continued to give a version of this past week's happenings that even cell phone videos cannot justify. This would have worked in the 1960's, but not today. Thank you technology!

"To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle."
George Orwell

I have come to the conclusion that questioning, reporting on, quoting, or opposing this president and his administration is an attempt in futility. One would have better luck trying to grow corn in a field of quicksand. Donald Trump and his minions can produce a falsehood as easily
 and thoughtlessly as you and I produce carbon dioxide.

It's more like that little 
Chinese finger trap we played with as kids: Put your fingers in and simply pull them out again, right? The harder you pulled, the tighter the woven toy became. The harder we try to expose the truth and mechanisms of this administration, the more we get caught in the maze of lies, misdirections, and bullshit.
