People can often "misunderestimate" just how hard it is to be a "very stable genius" all the time. So it is with Trump, battling relentless media that are out to destroy him.
For the few of us who write political humor op-eds, he provides more material in one day than No-Drama-Obama did in a year. Here's just this week's material:
You know the material is flowing fast and furiously when porn star "Stormy Daniels," it is reported, took $130,000 in hush money from a president and it does not make the front page of most papers. If you wonder why someone at that level would want to be associated with such a seedy business, no one has asked Stormy why she got involved.
Then there was a fire at the Clinton home in Chappaqua, N.Y., around the time there seemed to be an actual Department of Justice investigation into the Clinton Crime Family Foundation. The fire was probably started by all the paper shredders running at the same time. But not to worry, Democrats: I have it on good authority that the fire was confined to Hillary's bedroom, so Bill was never in peril.
Then Trump had a very nice, televised meeting with Democrats and Republicans trying to come to some mutual agreement on immigration and DACA. It was a glimpse of the president's willingness to work with Democrats on important issues. Trump was cool, measured, reasonable and in command, which drove the media nuts. PMS-NBC and CNN were so upset they are making a case — quoting unnamed sources — that Trump colluded with Dale Carnegie.
The president said of the "Dreamers" that he wanted legislation addressing their status. He called it "A Bill of Love," which also happened to be President Clinton's Secret Service code name. Trump later summed up what many wonder about our immigration policy, "Why do we take so many from s***hole countries?" Then Dicky Durbin double-crossed him and went to the press about a confidential meeting. No wonder nothing gets done in D.C.
Trump gets into a dust-up with Lil-Kim Jong-un over whose nuclear button is bigger. To be fair, who among us men has not speculated on whether our button is bigger than a rival's? Trump punctuates the fight by saying that at least his nuke button works. Hawaii is then panicked when its government mistakenly sends out a distress message that it is being nuked. The Hawaii state employee responsible was given the most severe punishment a state employee can get: reassignment to a similar position at full pay.
The awards season has started with the Golden Globes. Legend has it that if the stars come out and do not see their reflections in a mirror on this day, we are in for another 10 months of award shows. On the red carpet, James Franco hugged a co-star from his recent movie when he saw her. The trial starts Monday.
I am surprised that Americans do not take more of their moral and political reasoning from today's celebrities. Early in their careers, many of them got GEDs while they were auditioning for roles in Hollywood. As we all know, good-looking people are just smarter than we are.
Then, we have the Dems' perpetual plan to heal the racial divide on Martin Luther King Day the same way they always have: by calling anyone who disagrees with them "racist." M.L. King would be a RINO by today's standards. Black Caucus members are also boycotting Trump's State of the Union speech.
Trump says he does not want them or celebs to attend anyway, and is "choosing" not to invite, much the same way I "chose" not to attend my high school prom with our homecoming queen.
