The Train Wreck of The Imperial Presidency – Reading the headlines today, it became clear to me that the juvenile protestors and evil Has Been Media™ are kicking back, eating popcorn and enjoying the films they are helping to make: The Trump Show. Marc Ambinder claims to know that everyone who has accepted employment inside Trump’s White House is miserable, hates their boss and lives in fear of him. “Trump seems utterly exhausted and just plain miserable. His staff is also surely miserable. Many do not like him. More importantly, they don’t trust him. They don’t trust Stephen Bannon to translate his core hunches into policy, with only a few exceptions. [emphasis mine]” How could Ambinder possibly KNOW that President Trump’s staff is miserable? It matters not because in today’sw Judgement Pornosphere™ drive media, facts don’t matter, half-baked “opinions” based on circumstantial evidence is all that is required to continue pulling down a Deep State, McMansion funding paycheck. Alisdair Macintyre, where are you now!?
