Rump Lies, Hypocrisy Know No Bounds

By Manifesto Joe

Resident Donald Rump declared this week "Made in America" week, again showcasing the lies and hypocrisy on which his entire political career has been built. In his alternative universe, Obama was born in Kenya, a record crowd attended his inauguration and at least 3 million people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election.

Now he has the nerve to declare "Made in America" week when his daughter's products are made 100 percent in the Third World by 6-year-old girls operating dangerous machines for 50 cents an hour. Rich!

Nothingburger? Looks Like White House Is Now 'Home Of The Whopper'

By Manifesto Joe

I've been absent from this blog for about seven months now, partly for personal reasons, and partly because I honestly wanted to give Resident Rump a chance. About six months after his inauguration, I'd say it's a chance he's never deserved.

No, he's not the first liar we've seen in the White House. The Clintons were not exactly on great terms with the facts, and that may be exactly the reason Rump is there. Hillary seems to have become like the Nixon of the Democratic Party, not an extremist, but unanimously loathed by conservative Republicans. But hey, at least she's intelligent and experienced in government, as was Nixon. The guy we have there now is, like Nixon, batshit crazy, and possibly even dumber than Il Doofus (Bush 43). For someone who has access to the nuclear codes, that could be a lethal combination. And though he's not the first liar in the White House, he appears to be the worst one. My title does not refer to the size of his hands.

It looks clear now why even the ultra-Republican Dallas Morning News endorsed Hillary last year. This dude is not just a political amateur, he's a stupid one. But then, perhaps he's exactly what the American people deserve. It's not an accident that Jay Leno, back when he was hosting The Tonight Show, had a "man-on-the-street" feature in which he often encountered people who, say, didn't know who the first president of the U.S. was. That's why it's not surprising that 62 million people voted for this no-class imbecile.

It always looked clear that the economic populism that kept coming out of his mouth was bullshit, just faux rhetoric to get Bubba's vote. But I'd hoped that he was crazy like a fox. He's crazy, as the Twitter rants illustrate; but he also makes Shrub Bush look like a genius.

He's probably going to go down with a fight, so not much will get done in Washington for about a year. This man seems to be genuinely convinced of his rightness, which makes the situation that much more frightening. I just hope he leaves the Oval Office before much more damage is done.
