2018 Will Be A Wild And Crazy Year In Donald Trump’s America

Here are The Campaign Update’s First Annual Random Predictions for 2018:

  • The crisis with North Korea will be resolved without a shot being fired – the only question is whether or not the Crazy Little Fat Guy survives the resolution.
  • Jim Acosta will suffer an on-air nervous breakdown – The behavior of CNN’s petulant White House correspondent became increasingly erratic and outrageous as 2017 progressed, and his obvious lobbying for a gig hosting his own show fell on deaf ears among the fake news channel’s management.  Things can only get worse for poor little Jimmy in 2018.
  • Joe and Mika will break up – Seriously, who could stand to be together with either one of them for more than a few years?  They’ll keep hosting their show together, but Mika is just bound to wake up some morning soon to the realization that she broke up two marriages to be with a guy who looks just like her Aunt Margaret.
  • The History Channel’s “Search for the Zodiac Killer” will, in its final episode, identify MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell as the famous mass murderer.  No really, I’m betting good money on this one.
  • The guys on Oak Island will finally find something truly significant – But we’ll have to wait through a 4-1/2 minute commercial break to find out what it is.
  • CNN’s ratings will drop below those for HGTV’s new show, “Flip or Flop Ypsilanti” –  Yeah, I know that show doesn’t exist, but given the proliferation of new “Flip or Flop” spinoffs during 2017, it seems inevitable that it will by the end of the first quarter of 2018.
  • The vaunted #MeToo movement will quietly grind to a whimpering halt – This is sad, but it is also inevitable, as America’s leftist establishment comes to realize that it’s mostly their own people getting caught up in it, which is not politically convenient.  Since the left politicizes literally everything, we can expect the climate of sexual abuse in Hollywood, the media and politics to be fully back to business as usual by mid-year.
  • The New England Patriots will win the Super Bowl, yet again – This is mainly because Eagles QB Carson Wentz went down to injury.  Had he remained healthy, the Eagles would have rolled to their first NFL Championship in the modern era.  As it is, the Patriots will easily dispatch the Vikings in Super Bowl whatever-roman-numeral-this-one-happens-to-be.
  • The Houston Astros will win the World Series, again – Hey, after waiting for more than half a century to win their first one, why not win one more over the same Los Angeles Dodgers?
  • White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who everyone in the fake news media assured us all back in August was miserable in his job and about to resign, will still be happily ensconced in his position a year from now.
  • Ditto Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who everyone in the fake news media has assured us repeatedly over the last six months was on the verge of resigning.  He actually likes his current job, and isn’t going anywhere.
  • The staff at the EPA will shrink by more than 1,000 during 2018 – if you thought the 700 or so who left during 2017 was a big deal, you should understand that it was only just the beginning.  This Administration is deadly serious about getting this heinously abusive agency under control.
  • The Justice Department’s IG Report will seem to be a disappointment when it is issued – As has been promised, the DOJ IG Report of its year-long investigation into potential wrong-doing among senior staff at DOJ and the FBI will be issued in late January/early February.  It will initially be perceived to be a disappointment to those who want to see justice truly done, but will actually become the catalyst for the eventual issuance of indictments against members of the anti-Trump cabal that has been working to overturn a duly-conducted U.S. election.
  • The Fake News Media will suddenly rediscover the “homeless” – Having failed miserably in its efforts to bring down a presidency with its myopic focus on the mythical “Russia Collusion”, the fake news media will go to the next page in its playbook and focus myopically on blaming President Trump for America’s “homeless” problem, which the fake news media studiously ignored throughout the 8 years of Obama.  It’s like clockwork.
  • Despite current polling data, the GOP will retain its majority in the U.S. House, and increase its majority in the Senate – Once those tax cuts kick in, those polling numbers are going to shift dramatically.  The 2018 mid-terms will not be a good time for the party of undending outrage, higher taxes, pussy hats, violent riots, Chelsea Handler and Nancy Pelosi.
  • President Trump will keep handing the fake news media exploding cigars – and the fake news media will keep lighting them up.  This is the safest prediction of all.

The Campaign Update wishes each and every one of you a very safe and Happy New Year!

President Trump’s Rocket Man Kill Shot Is Great Diplomacy

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Pyong Yang ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids… – The fake journalists in the fake news media will never give him credit for it, but President Donald Trump has successfully issued one of his famous linguistic kill shots at the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea.  The President started using “Rocket Man” as is nickname for the NORK dictator last week, and according to UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, by Monday everyone at the UN General Assembly was using the demeaning moniker as well.
  • “It worked,” she said, when asked about it by a clearly verklempt George Stephanopolous on Good Morning America, “I was talking to a president of an African country yesterday, and he actually cited ‘Rocket Man’ back to me… This is a way of getting people to talk about him, but every other international community is now referring to him as ‘Rocket Man.'”
  • The linguistic kill shot is a Donald Trump specialty, one we saw him use time and time again to dispatch opponents during his presidential run.  Who can forget his killing Jeb! Bush and his $200 million war chest in one of the early primary debates by calling him “low energy”?  Carly Fiorina became a “robot,” Ben Carson was “too nice,” Marco Rubio was “sweaty” and “Little Marco,” Ted Cruz was “Lyin’ Ted.”  Every time a major challenger arose, the verbal kill shot having something to do with their physical characteristics or character came, the voters internalized it and the challenger fell to the wayside.
  • In the general election, Hillary Clinton first became “Crooked Hillary,” something most Americans already knew about her but had never heard said by one of her opponents, and then Trump began questioning her “stamina”.  That latter kill shot came just before Ms. Clinton was filmed collapsing while trying to get into her van following a 9/11 ceremony in New York City, and voters understood then what Trump meant.
  • The Kill Shot was crucial in the campaign, and it is also important at the UN.  It is much easier for despots who dominate third world countries to continue to lend support to a nutjob like Kim Jong Un when everyone keeps referring to him in formal diplomatic terms under the pretense that he is a legitimate “leader”.  But it becomes much harder when everyone walking the halls at the UN headquarters is laughingly talking about and ridiculing the Rocket Man.
  • Again, no one on the political left or in the fake news media will ever give him credit for it, but the linguistic kill shot is a big part of the President’s genius, and a big factor why he is where he is today.  We can anticipate much more usage of this tool in next year’s midterm elections, and if the GOP leaders in congress don’t get something big done on Obamacare or taxes, some of those kill shots will be directed at them, and deservedly so.
  • If you watch “The View”, you are living a sad and depressing life, part 7,352 – Naturally, the ‘ladies’ on “The View” had the most idiotic take possible on the “Rocket Man” kill shot, with both Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar claiming the President was making a phallic reference in using it.  There are so many mean things I could say about this coming from these particular ladies, but I am going to exercise a little self-restraint for once.
  • Watch out!  George is gonna get angry! – If you want a bunch of good laughs this morning, go take a look at the clips of MSNBC fake host Lawrence O’Donnell going absolutely berserk at his staff during commercial breaks while taping the August 29 episode of his fake talk show.  We’ve always known that O’Donnell was a raving lunatic, and these outtakes prove it beyond all doubt.  Warning:  lots and lots of profanity involved.
  • The Apocalypse is always just around the corner… – The Sun reports that “A mass extinction which wipes out humanity will be underway by the year 2100, scientists have claimed.”  Because, you know, science or something.

Just another day in linguistic kill shot America.

That is all.
