It’s almost as if Donald Trump and his supporters all share the same brain — and are each allowed to use it for two minutes a day to attempt to wipe their asses correctly.
Other than that? It’s a MAGA-spewing, reality-ignoring, bullshit-propagating hive mind, folks — and it will brook no insolence when it comes to Dear Leader.
Today in Pennsylvania, Trump attacked Fox News for having the effrontery to allow a Democrat (in this case Pete Buttigieg) to speak. And his doting throng of marmalade heads dutifully savaged their favorite network in perfect goose-stepping synchronicity.
“Last night I watched Alfred E. Neuman. What’s going on with Fox, by the way? What’s going on there? They're putting more Democrats on than you have Republicans. Something strange is going on at Fox, folks — something very strange.
“Did you see this guy last night? I did want to watch, you always have to watch the competition, if you call it that. And he was knocking the hell out of Fox and Fox has put him there. Someone's going to have to explain the whole Fox deal to me.”
Yes, that’s Trump’s brilliant nickname for Mayor Pete — Alfred E. Neuman. You can tell he’s really proud of it, too. It’s like when he first discovered money laundering. I bet he still thinks he invented it.
Still, the message was unambiguous: Fox News is Trump’s pet propaganda network, and it should only have eyes for Dear Leader. And if he can’t bring them to heel on his own, he’ll get his flying monkeys to do the job for him.
