One of the many glories of Donald Trump is his remarkable ability to clarify the truths than have been hidden, or that weak and stupid people have just preferred not to see. Our garbage institutions are teetering, victims of age, technology, and the utter corruption and incompetence of our allegedly elite ruling caste, and for years the soft conservatives have refused to see what is right in front of their dumb, pasty faces. Thanks to Trump breaking them in mind, body, and spirit, there’s no denying it anymore.
So many people used to wishcast good faith upon the Establishment even in these chaotic times. How often have you seen Republicans treating the mainstream media like buddies instead of the partisan opponents that they are? GOP dummies go on “60 Minutes” or some Sunday morning libfest, get ritually disemboweled, and come back scratching their toupees wondering what the hell just happened.
But but but the host was unfair.
But but but the host was biased.
But but but I don’t understand.
But but but I was told that the media were brave truth tellers of truth!
Well, understanding the reality has been thrust upon even the stupidest of us.
Take a look at the Hoover Biden laptop thing. We have a computer that the Toast of Medellin gave to a repair man and forgot about because meth-huffing losers forget about stuff. We got his signature on the papers. We got his ambulance chaser demanding it back. We got the testimony of a veteran with a vaguely Slavic name whistleblowing it, and I was told that it’s literally treason to doubt whistleblowing veterans with a vaguely Slavic name (maybe they have to look like a bratwurst in their uniform for this to apply – it’s hard to keep track of the ever-changin’ rules).
And yet we have Leslie Stahl, a licensed, approved journalist of journalism, telling the president that the laptop revelations are not verified.
No verified? If some hobo on a corner took a break from nadlering all over the streets of San Francisco to tell a passing NYT reporter, “I like James Bond movies and I’m pretty sure I saw Putin paying for Don Jr.’s latte at a Starbucks on Castro Street” we’d see a headline the next day reading “Anonymous Intelligence Insider Reports Trump Family Receiving Payoffs From Russian Leader.”
When the biggest corruption scandal in American history erupts and the media hacks who spent their whole life Toobin Zoom-calling themselves over the thought of someday being the next Woodward and/or Bernstein because it hurts the politician they like, even the wimpiest of Republican simps start realizing that maybe it’s time to get woke to the reality.
There is no normal to go back to. Pretending that everything is fine and that the basic premises of American society have not been completely upended by leftists seeking total power is no longer cutting it.
It would be nice to have a country where institutions did what they were supposed to do.
Where the media reported thoroughly and fairly and did not actively side with the Democratic Party.
