When I was a kid, there was a ride at a small amusement park semi-close to where I grew up. They had a ride called the Hell Hole and I’m not sure why we loved this ride the way we did. The entrance had the devil on the front and he looked down on you as you entered his den of loud rock-n-roll music. As you waited for it to be your turn to enter you could hear kids screaming as if the devil was really coming after them. Then the door would open and out would pour dazed and confused children and then it was your turn. You walked into a circular room where you stood against the wall and then the room began to spin. There were kids who would do handstands so the force of the spinning stuck them to the wall upside down, others would lean sideways and sprawl out. Then when you were having a grand old time of trying to not throw up, the floor would drop out and you were happy that you stuck to the wall and didn’t drop six feet to the floor. There were stories of kids throwing up and it would fly back at the poor kids pressed against the wall, but I am fortunate that never happened when I was in there.
Why am I telling you about the Hell Hole? Well, this week in Trump news was like spinning around in circles and I have been praying that the floor doesn’t drop out or that the lies that Trump has been vomiting out this week don’t come back to splatter us all. Can we please stop this ride? I want to get off.
At a fundraiser on Wednesday, Trump admits that he lied to Justin Trudeau of Canada during a meeting. He lied saying that we have a trade deficit with Canada, but that is not the case. We actually have a surplus with Canada. We actually sell more to Canada than we buy from them. (LINK)
Then, of course, the president can’t help himself and doubles down on the lie. Could someone, please tie his hands to his sides so he stops with Twitter? This man should not be able to lie to the country. He needs to be stopped. Mr. Mueller, if you happen to read this, (longshot, I know) could you please hurry up? The country needs you. I will personally take you to an amusement park that doesn’t have a Hell Hole. (LINK)
How are other countries supposed to trust the United State with a liar running the country?
Then we have Trump firing people left and right. As my mom (Hi Mom) says, Trump thinks he is still on his TV show. I honestly believe that Trump believes that any publicity is good publicity. I don’t think he wants to be president, so he is coasting until he can be out of office, then he will turn around and he will be launching Trump TV. Fox News, (hahaha, they aren’t news. They are entertainment, but I digress) better watch out because he will pull stealing all his Fox News buddies for Trump TV.
The latest firing from the second season of “The President,” was Trump’s personal assistant, John McEntee who is currently under investigation by Homeland Security for “serious financial crimes.” I think Trump was afraid that the investigation by Homeland Security might rub off on him, so he said, “You’re Fired,” to John McEntee. I am sure that if it had been me fired by Trump, I would have stopped off at the closest bar and bought the whole place a round to celebrate. I don’t drink so I would treat myself to my beloved Diet Pepsi that I have recently given up. (Trying to get healthy)
The next up to be fired on the second season of “The President,” was Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson. However, the president wasn’t brave enough to let Tillerson know he was being let go. Reports say that Tillerson only learned of his firing by the tweet of the president.
Is it suspicious that Tillerson agreed with the British government that Russia was behind the “nerve gas” attack on a former Russian spy and his daughter the day before he was fired?
It’s getting late as I write this and I know it’s a short blog, but I am exhausted tonight. But, I wanted to leave you with one last moment in the second season of “The President.”
At the same fundraiser where Trump admitted to lying to Justin Trudeau, he also told a story about Japanese testing American cars by dropping bowling balls on the hoods. Sarah Huckabee Sanders said today that the president was joking, but it didn’t appear he was joking.
Trump said, “ It’s called the bowling ball test. You know what that is? That’s where they take a bowling ball from 20 feet up in the air and drop it on the hood of the car. And if the hood dents, the car doesn’t qualify.”)
I honestly don’t know what to say about this. I am hoping that the ride operator decides to cut us all a break and let us out before the floor drops so far down it never comes back and that the vomit Trump has spewed misses all of us.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend. I am planning on spending it reading the book I got from Book of the Month Club. This week I received “Other People’s Houses,” by Abbi Waxman. I am only six chapters in and I am hooked. I am planning on binge reading the book and I will let you know my thoughts when I am finished.
Mawow and I wish you,
Peace, Love & Kitty Snuggles,
