The Golden Globe Awards were held last night, and Oprah was apparently elected president. At least, that’s what NBC’s official Twitter feed appeared to indicate early in the evening. So it must be official, or something.
I didn’t watch the Golden Globes, which I know comes as a gigantic shock to all of you, but I do watch Twitter, and on that platform I see that Oprah told the assembled Hollywood phonies that “There is nothing more important than speaking your truth.” Note to President Oprah: There is no such thing as “your” truth. There is truth, and there is not truth. There is nothing in between. Giving that kind of advice to a bunch of mental midgets who already live in a completely faked-up world is like feeding crack to a street addict. Shame on you.
In keeping with the evening’s “we’re all gonna wear black to show solidarity with somebody or something…hey, are you gonna keep your gift bag? Can I have it?” theme, Actress Connie Britton wore a black skirt along with a cotton t-shirt that said “Poverty is Sexist.” It would have been more accurate had it said, “I am really vapid and sort of stupid.”
Speaking of people living in a fantasy world, noted fiction writer Michael Wolff, who is in the running with Scut Farkus for the Greenest Teeth on the Planet award (if only he had yellow eyes, too), is experiencing a moment of gigantic hubris, which was predictable given all the free media he’s had over the last week. In an interview with the BBC, Wolff told the fake interviewer that his book “will finally end this presidency once and for all.” This is me, sighing heavily: *sigh*.
In other words, Wolff believes his book – which he himself admits is at best a highly fictionalized portrayal of reality – is the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump.” One can only wonder if this turd of a human being has any idea how many times over the last 2 years and 8 months the American public has heard those words uttered by some leftwing fool, pontificating pundit or fake conservative #neverTrump nitwit. That phrase is without any doubt the most frequently-uttered empty promise in recent history, on a par with “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” or “I turned over all the emails I was required to turn over,” or “I did not have sex with that woman.”
It began even before Donald Trump announced his candidacy. As he and Melania came down that escalator in the lobby of Trump Tower to make the announcement, talking heads on Fox and CNN were already predicting the end to his presidential run.
When his unorthodox performance in the first primary debate with 11 of his 16 GOP opponents caused such an uproar, Charles Krauthammer and many other makers of the DC conventional wisdom declared with absolute certainty that it was “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.” And yet he persisted.
Megyn Kelly’s opening the second primary debate with her very aggressive questioning about his history with women was “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.” And yet he carried on.
Trump’s loss to Ted Cruz in the Iowa Caucuses was declared by everyone on every cable and network news program to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.” A few days later, he won New Hampshire in a landslide.
His loss to Cruz in the Wisconsin primary was supposed to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.” Trump then went out and swept the next 16 consecutive primary races and easily secured the nomination.
The release of the Billy Bush tape was going to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” yet he somehow soldiered on.
His poor performance in the first debate with Hillary Clinton was declared with great finality by everyone in the fake news media to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.” But he won the next two debates and ultimately won the election.
The firing of corrupt FBI Director James Comey was going to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” but still, Trump persisted.
The appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to investigate allegations of collusion with Russia was certainly going to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” yet 10 months later there is no evidence of any such collusion, and Mueller is off casting about for other angles of investigation.
The indictments of Paul Manafort and George Papadopoulos were declared to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.” But there he still sits in the White House.
We’ve seen, at a minimum, two dozen stories published over the last year by the NYTimes or the WaPo, based on nothing but unidentified sources, all of which have been declared by all the smart people in Washington to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”
Yet, Donald Trump remains, tweeting early in the morning to set the fake news media off on its daily rabbit trails of hysteria and false reporting, then spending the remainder of each day systematically erasing the horrific, anti-American legacy of Barack Obama.
If the treasury had collected a dollar from every wise man, fake reporter or fake talking head in Washington every time they had declared “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump” over the last 32 months, we’d be halfway to retiring the national debt.
Just another day in Donald Trump Persists America.
That is all.
