Tonight is a new President Trump: Acknowledging a flip-flop and talking about gravity of office, history & substance.— Philip Rucker (@PhilipRucker) August 22, 2017
In case you were wondering, is the White House Bureau Chief at The Washington Post and a paid political analyst for MSNBC & NBC News.
And every time President Stupid's spastic colon spasms, Mr. Rucker snaps a collar bone.
One side-note: As I was staggering back to the keyboard to write this. I looked up to see Bloody Bill Kristol. On MSNBC. Being interviewed by Brian Williams. On the Middle East, US foreign policy and war-making and where Lindsay Graham, John McCain and Holy Joe Liebermann all go to get their mani-pedis. All done with a completely straight face.
As I have opined once or twice...
Trump was sent by Satan to normalize Bill Kristol— driftglass (@Mr_Electrico) August 16, 2017
And there it was, happening once again: the media treating a monster like a long-lost lodge brother. Helping him ooze back into respectability. Happening in real time right out in public and no one -- no one -- but some scurrilous, disreputable bloggers are even going to mention it.
