Trump's Mouthpiece is Delusional and Humorless

I'm going to include the video of the press briefing given today by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. It is rife with humorlessness, outrage, and hyperbole. 

It is now the duty of Americans everywhere to mock these people. The statements made by Trump and his underlings should be endlessly mocked for their inability to connect with reality. Every lie, every outrage, everything they say should be met with howls of laughter. 

Watch how angry Spicer gets. He looks like he's going to have a stroke. Over what? The loss of lives, the failure of a military mission, the collapse of something important? No. He's mad because people are laughing at the boss.

So, umm--keep laughing. Drive these jackasses crazy.

It's not enough to say "they lie." They don't have an acquaintance with the truth. They won't let the truth in the room. They suspect they know what the truth is, but they're in denial. 

Informal estimates said that about 250,000 people attended the inaugural. That's a paltry number compared to the last few, and an embarrassing spectacle for a president who lost the popular vote by millions and relied on racism, bigotry, and xenophobia to win. Earlier today I showed you how the people who attended were overwhelmingly white, old, and grim faced. The Trump Regime is reacting to photos--real photos--taken by real people. Evidence, in other words, of what the truth looks like.

We need satire and humor more than ever. These things are like kryptonite to autocrats. Trump himself cannot stand being made fun of. The need to make fun of this man is your patriotic duty.

  1. Sean Spicer starting out with such anger does not bode well for the next four years. Of course he's just following the example set by his boss in yesterday's inaugural speech.
