Faking it

It's good to know the President's not so busy he can't read Drudge....

So, the man who can pick up the phone and talk directly to the head of the FBI 24/7 instead contacts the FBI via Twitter?

The "@FBI" is the tell.  Trump is not trying to distract us from something with Machiavellian guile.  He really does think reality occurs in press reports, and he really does want to the FBI to switch to FoxNews to get the "real" information.

"Fake news" can only be fake if it is news.  If there is no "fake news" to complain about, what would Trump do with his time?  And yes, it trickles down to Trump, Jr.:

Note the silence about answers to questions offered before the Senate Intelligence Committee; or the answers to questions offered by Director Comey to the House committee.  No, the only news is FoxNews (or Drudge, or Breitbart), and the only thing to comment on is "fake news."  An idea that isn't new, and isn't fake.

But we'll come back to that.....


  1. They know that the Trump fans will go nuts at the idea of a Black Woman doing anything - racism has been their primary organizational tool, sexism, their secondary one.

    From what I've read, her requesting the names be unmasked would have been a. entirely legal, b. something someone in her position would have been expected to do.

    It's not going to save them when the birds roost.

  2. They still don't understand the difference between controlling the government and controlling the narrative.

    And frankly, they can't do either.
