President Evilene

Don't nobody bring him no bad news.

The taxpayer-funded nannies the White House now employee to keep President Angry Man-Baby from nuking Greece because he had that bad gyros that one time have figured out that the only reliable way to Il Douche's heart is through his planet-sized narcissism.

From Politico:
How Trump’s campaign staffers tried to keep him off Twitter
The trick? Making sure his media diet included a healthy dose of praise.

The key to keeping Trump’s Twitter habit under control, according to six former campaign officials, is to ensure that his personal media consumption includes a steady stream of praise. And when no such praise was to be found, staff would turn to friendly outlets to drum some up — and make sure it made its way to Trump’s desk.

"If candidate Trump was upset about unfair coverage, it was productive to show him that he was getting fair coverage from outlets that were persuadable," said former communications director Sam Nunberg. "The same media that our base digests and prefers is going to be the base for his support. I would assume the president would like see positive and preferential treatment from those outlets and that would help the operation overall."
On the one hand. at this point "We Fucking Told You So" hardly seems adequate.

On the other hand,  I'll bet all your wingnut friends and relatives believe Il Douche is doing a bang-up job.

And there is the problem.  There is the Terrible Truth that only despised Liberals dare to utter.

It's not Trump.

It's all of them.  And it always has been.

There's a call-in radio show airing on my local National Propaganda Radio station most evenings that purports to be a conversation between righties and lefties during the first 100 days of the Trump Admin. While most callers are uniformly polite, it does appear that the Trump voters are more than satisfied with Trump, how/what he's doing. But really? Why wouldn't they be? They loved his twitting during the campaign, so why would they stop now? I guess that's all it takes is Trump twitting out nasty diatribes mainly against his perceived "enemies" - the media, the Dumbocraps, etc. That's all it takes to make conservatives happy anymore. So what if they don't get access to affordable health care? So what if there aren't any jobs coming back? As long as the putative leader of the so-called "free world" spends a significant portion of his day saying ugly things about the people that conservatives hate??? WIN!!11!!

I must say, from a rightwing 1%/politician's standpoint, this must be like hitting numerous jackpots at however many of Trump's casinos are still in business. Easy pickings.

Yeah, as long as Trump gives the "economically anxious white working class voter" their Muslim Ban, keeps up the ICE raids, rules by EO, and keeps pretending to work on an infrastructure bill (details of which are not relevant) 40% of the country will be pleased as punch with this administration.

I am sure the first town hall that gets met with riot police will be met with a collective orgasm by 1/3 of the nation.
