Sean Hannity of Fox Fake News has said on at least one occasion that he isn’t actually a journalist but more or talk show host, one of the few times he’s actually spoken something credible and I personally am willing to give credit where credit is due.
A “talk show” host along the lines of Morton Downey jr and Jerry Springer – but Hannity one ups both Downey and Springer to take credit for being a bot as well as a propagandist.
Perhaps the administrations chief propagandist – and that’s saying something when you consider the competition like Huckabee Sanders and the “reverend” Franklin Graham as he performs his daily ritual of Trump absolution … “ we have all sinned” – yup, problem is some just make a career of it.
It’s a sad commentary how “talk show hosts”, preachers, and a segment of society turn themselves into human pretzels to avoid obvious truths – a case in point is the manner in which some are attempting to portray Dear Leaders reception at the Davos conference in Switzerland.
To hear them tell it the Swiss reacted as if it was the second coming, what they failed to mention were the boos – but as difficult a path as it must have been Trump did a decent job of sticking to the prescribed script his minions had prepared for him.
Trump is demonstrably ignorant but among his staffers and advisors the light is coming on as mid term elections loom on the horizon that the message of hate and mysogyny needs to be toned down a little.
To that end Trump is making an attempt to get all warm and fuzzy about DACA – next thing he’ll be claiming those Mexican “rapists” he went on about love him and he “probably” has as good a relationship with them as he alluded he “probably” does with his separated at birth counterpart Kim Jong Un.
Mexico is going to pay for the wall – right, that’s why Trump and congress, small c as it’s populated by small people, persist in trying to get tax payers to foot the bill.
I’ve given up trying to understand the mentality of Trump bots and supporters who never heard a lie they didn’t like and if there aren’t enough emanating from the White House not adverse to making up a few of their own, for some it’s actually become a career choice.
Idoicracy, as in the movie of the same name, has become a reality, but you know what’s really interesting is that Fox funded the movie, then when seeing the results did what they always do – sought to distance themselves from a timely social commentary.
