What he said: “I had a call today with Prime Minister Netanyahu to discuss the possibility of moving forward with a Mutual Defense Treaty, between the United States and Israel, that would further anchor the tremendous alliance between our two countries. I look forward to continuing those discussions after the Israeli Elections when we meet at the United Nations later this month!”

What he meant: And it is another great way I can use American taxpayer money to my benefit. THAT is another thing that makes me SMART. Israel wins, I win, and America loses.

What he said: “How do you impeach a President who has helped create perhaps the greatest economy in the history of our Country? All time best unemployment numbers, especially for Blacks, Hispanics, Asians & Women. More people working today than ever before. Rebuilt Military & Choice for Vets…Became Number 1 in World & Independent in Energy. Will soon have record number of Judges, 2 SC Justices. Done more than any President in first 2 1/2 years despite phony & fraudulent Witch Hunt illegally led against him. WIN on Mueller Report, Mueller Testimony & James Comey..IG Report, which showed him to be a Disgraced & Dirty Cop. Republicans have unified like never before. You don’t impeach Presidents for doing a good (great!) job. No Obstruction, No Collusion, only treasonous crimes committed by the other side, and led by the Democrats. Sad!”

What he meant: So what if I am a liar, an adulterer, and collect taxpayer money when I make government employees stay at my properties, that does not make me a crook, IT MAKES ME SMART.

Trump to Announce his New National Security Advisor©

Donald Trump will announce the name of his new New National Security Advisor tonight during the same time frame as the broadcast of the Democratic Debates.

Trump decided to make the announcement then, in the hope that it will draw away some viewers from the debate. In his words, the timing is ‘so sweet’ for him, and ‘so sad’ for the lying, socialists, Democrats.

However, The Mad World Messenger has scooped this story exclusively, and I will now break the news of Trump’s pick: Dwight K. Schrute.

Yes, believe it or not, Trump has long been a big fan of The Office, and for most of the show’s run Trump thought that it was a reality show and that the actors were real employees of Dunder Mifflin. Needless to say, Dwight Schrute was Trump’s favorite character, he was often heard saying at the Trump Cos. offices that he wished that he had a whole office full of Dwight’s.

Trump has long been looking to find an ideal position for Schrute in his administration but has been somewhat hamstrung because so many of the positions he would have been good at required Senate confirmation. And even Mitch McConnell would not have advanced a Schrute nomination. Now, the perfect position has come open National Security Advisor, and it does not require Senate confirmation,  it is perfect for Schrute.

As Trump has often done after hiring relatively conventional choices for important roles, he soon sours on them because, usually, they believe that their job is to actually advise, and when the President decides to make a really bad decision, they should advise against it. Not so with Trump, he wants a lap dog, and there is none better than Dwight K. Schrute.

Trump has long seen himself as the real Michael Scott and has longed for a Shrute of his own, and now he has one, the original Schrute. And as Dwight might have said: Schrute is destiny.

What he said: “European Central Bank, acting quickly, Cuts Rates 10 Basis Points. They are trying, and succeeding, in depreciating the Euro against the VERY strong Dollar, hurting U.S. exports…. And the Fed sits, and sits, and sits. They get paid to borrow money, while we are paying interest!”

What he meant: Who can figure out what a Basis Point* is anyway. This is why I want to get rid of the Fed, also because they do not have to do what I want. BAD system, get rid of it.

Remember©

I remember 9/11/2001 like it was yesterday. I remember watching the first tower that was hit burning, I remember watching the second tower being hit and the plane disintegrating before the eyes of America. I remember watching people trapped above the fire, unable to escape, jump to their death rather than wait for the inevitable fire and smoke to overcome them, jumping was their last conscious act. I remember watching the towers collapse; they collapsed on all Americans.

I remember the news that other planes had been hijacked and the fear was that they were both heading to America’s capital,  to crash into the White House or Congress. I remember hearing that one plane crashed into a field in Pennsylvania, brought down by the bravery of the passengers. Another last conscious act that saved many other lives at the cost of their own. I remember seeing the scene of the last plane that crashed into the Pentagon, the raw images of the blackened facade of that storied building, where America’s efforts to win WWII was planned to be executed to such great effect around the world, making the world safe for democracy.

I remember how I felt that day, and ever after, that what had happened on 9/11, a day of horror, would, as with the bombing of Pearl Harbor 60 years before, live as a Day of Infamy.

Remember.

This a place to record my thoughs on the world's events as satire, humor, speculation, or even serious discourse.
