How Can Anyone Make Political Sense Out of The DC Circus?

In the first six months of President Trump’s administration, we have continuously witness unprecedented occurrences, that, certainly, have not been witnessed, in recent memory. Whether this applies to the falsehoods (also known as, lies), vitriol, rhetoric, language (cursing, etc), etc, there has never been as much media coverage, blaming and complaining, passing the buck, excessive Social Media usage, etc, as well as polls indicating this President’s favorable rating, as historically low, we are certainly witnessing a period, like we never have before! Let’s review some of the events of this past week, in line with understanding and recognizing the applicability of the adage, The inmates have taken over the asylum!

1. The President loudly complained about his Attorney General: Have we ever witnessed any President, so loudly complain about the Attorney General he appointed, and who was also the first Senator to endorse his candidacy, loudly complaining, because he recused himself from the Russian investigation, especially related to the election campaign. Ethical experts state this was his only proper, ethical response, because there was certainly, the perception of a conflict of interest. Mr. Trump, then, also complained about the Deputy Attorney General, Rothstein, saying he improperly appointed a Special Counsel.

2. Trump continued attacking the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller: When he was appointed, there was bi – partisan raving, about the qualifications of Mr. Mueller. Because of all the reporting of Trump campaign contacts, and possible relationships, with Russia, there is suspicion, it’s all about avoiding additional delving into matters related to Trump and his family.

3. Trump appoints new Communication Director, Scaramucci, and his present Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, quits: Scaramucci, then, proceeds, to attack numerous people, and use profanity – laced language, during an interview, he initiated. He personally attacks the Chief of Staff, Priebus, and Senior Advisor, Bannon, in, to say the least, profane terms!

4. Health insurance legislation fails: With Senator John McCain returning from recent brain cancer surgery, he ended up, casting the deciding vote, to defeat his party’s last resort legislation (after several previous bills were also defeated), known as Skinny Repeal. The President and Majority Leader McConnell express outrage! Trump, of course, divorces himself from personal responsibility, blaming the Democrats and 3 Republicans, for defeating this quality, needed legislation. Of course, the reality was, the proposal did nothing to improve health care or insurance costs, etc, but rather put 16 million Americans, without health insurance. There was no way, anyone, could objectively say, that bill, helped anyone!

5. Priebus resigns (or was forced to), and the Homeland Security Secretary appointed as Chief of Staff: Since Mr. Priebus, the former G.O.P. Chair, was the only operative in the White House, with any political connections, and General Kelly (his replacement) has no prior political experience, this is another interesting (at least) scenario.

So, who’s in charge, and what do they want to achieve. The President goes in front of the Boy Scouts, and gives a political speech, and the head of the Scouts, had to write a letter of apology to the parents. He continues to use the same type of rhetoric, he used during the campaign. Political fact – checkers state, President Trump, has not gone one day, since he assumed office, where he did not tell, some major lie! If we saw this in a movie, we would say, it was too exaggerated and far – fetched, yet, unfortunately, that is precisely present – day America’s reality (and perhaps, worst nightmare)!
