Donald Trump gave what he described as an “important” speech today. Actually, it was a bunch of hoary old lies he wanted to regurgitate into the yawning mouths of his deluded, baby-bird followers — all of whom are afraid of being kicked out of the nest to face a world where the nasty Joe Biden is determined to bring the plaster walking boot of infrastructure investment and health care down on the necks of a proud nation.
I watched the whole thing because it sounded marginally more appealing than skinning the hide off my lower torso with a Play-Doh scissors (not sure why those are the only two choices, but then when has anything made sense lately?), and I can tell you with metaphysical certitude that you’ll never see a more disgraceful performance from behind the presidential seal in your lifetime, unless Trump shoots a snuff film in the White House briefing room in the next 50 days … which I’m not ruling out.
There’s no real point in describing, transcribing, or summarizing the speech, because it was all bullshit.
But something good came of it nonetheless.
