FEAR AND HATE BURST INTO FULL FLOWER IN CLEVELAND
MAKE AMERICA SAFE DAY RATCHETS UP THE HEAT ON OBAMA/CLINTON
Listening to the speakers last night at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, one could easily come away with the impression that the United States of America is ruled by a vicious dictator, overrun by violent and disease ridden illegal immigrants from Latin America, awash in cop killing Black Americans bent on destroying the country, surrounded by hostile nations sending terrorists into the country with the single goal of killing as many Americans as possible and a Democratic candidate for President who has committed every crime known to mankind – including the murder of Vince Foster (Yes, one more time!) – and should have been imprisoned while she was in her mother’s womb. NOTE: I’m pretty certain that those attending the Republican Convention would have foregone their steadfast opposition to abortion had Hillary-Spawn-of-Satan-Clinton’s Mom decided all those years ago to avail herself of the services of Planned Parenthood. But, no such luck, right?
What The Fuck? I mean, Jesus, fucking Christ, how the hell do any of us even get out of bed each morning with the country in such desperate straits?
Full Disclosure: I did not watch the entire convention proceedings since I did not want to wind up with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I did, however, have the ultimate good fortune of catching the speech of one Lt. General Michael Flynn, former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Flynn is a defense and foreign policy advisor to Trump and, not unexpectedly, this guy accused President Obama of putting the country in danger from terrorists, working in league with terrorists, promoting attacks on White cops, allowing ISIS to flourish, killing our veterans, aiding and abetting race wars - all pretty standard right wing attacks against our secret Muslim, non-American born, one world promoting dictator. But Flynn delivered a full-throated, fire and brimstone speech worthy of Adolph Hitler. Thing is, and here’s the rub, until he joined the Trump team, the man was a member of the Obama Administration. Obama nominated him to be Defense Intelligence Agency Director in 2012 and has served in various government intelligence positions since 2001. Let me give President Obama a heads up here: With friends like Lt. General Michael Flynn, you need to do a much better job when vetting your appointees paying particular attention to their political views.
But the night was not without its humor. Weird humor, as it were, but humor nonetheless. And it came from Trump’s wife, Melania Trump. Gorgeous, sophisticated, statuesque, her speech extolling her husband’s kindness, generosity, warmth and loyalty was greeted with huge cheers from the crowd and the television pundits. But just after midnight with an empty convention hall, Breaking News Headlines started flashing across our TV screens that Melania had plagiarized parts of her speech. Not necessarily a first as political speeches go. But, and here’s the humorous part, MSNBC and CNN began showing side by side video clips of a 2008 speech by Michelle Obama and Melania Trump’s convention speech and, sure enough, Melania’s words ran pretty much parallel to Michelle’s words.
At first I thought – “No, this can’t be right. How could any Presidential speech writer be so careless as to crib words from someone else’s speech on the night that the entire country was looking forward to Melania’s introduction to America?’ And, the really over the top hilarious part: From First Lady Orangutan-Fat-Assed-Dictator-Enabler-Race-Baiting Michelle Obama? It really was too much to bear. But as the three or four clips rolled onward, there was little doubt – read “NO DOUBT” – that indeed plagiarism had obviously occurred.
It is really too delicious for words! We’ll see how The Donald and his campaign handles this one. This morning all the Republican operatives are falling all over themselves trying to find some spin that somehow or other doesn't scream: PLAGIARISM! (Good luck with this!)
Tonight's Republican Convention theme: MAKE AMERICAN WORK AGAIN! Should be fun!!!!
NOTE TO HILLRY: My advice is to simply remain silent between now and the first Presidential debate or until Trump releases his tax returns whichever event comes first since it looks as if both Trump and the Republican Party seem to be doing a fairly magnificent job of letting American know just how batshit crazy Trump and the Republican Party are.
