Happy Horseshit

One of the most surreal revelations about Donald Trump's White House came yesterday in a news item from Vice (link here). The title tells it all: "Trump gets a folder full of positive news about himself twice a day."

The President is such a special snowflake that he can't stand to hear or read or see bad news about himself. So Republican National Committee and White House staff (the latter funded by taxpayers) prepare a special folder for Trump to peruse twice a day filled with, as the article details, "screenshots of positive cable news chyrons (those lower-third headlines and crawls), admiring tweets, transcripts of fawning TV interviews, praise-filled news stories, and sometimes just pictures of Trump on TV looking powerful."

There's nothing wrong with preparing digests of media coverage for Presidents and other politicians. That's been going on for decades.

What is wrong is the practice of shading the truth so that it's only a oxygen-starved bubble filled with happy horseshit. Trump needs to know the truth, not just sugar-coated tripe.

It speaks volumes about a man that he's so insecure, he can't stand to hear or see anything negative about himself. This is something a mentally unstable dictator would do, not the leader of a democracy.


  1. Well said and with the North Korean escalating for nuclear war it gets even scarier.

    Two such idiots in charge of nuke buttons and exchanging those nonsense words are very dangerous for the WHOLE planet balance.

    Your president is such a FAKE and uneducated moron that it makes it more frightening to your allies to try to follow him in any case.

    "HE" is isolating USA by so many ways but doesn't hesitate to make to whole world Peace at stake.

    May God have pity for us.
