8/17: Slime Time

[I write about politics because of the direct link I see between the words and actions of politicians and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. America’s political class manipulates our military as though they were pawns in a global game of chess. To them, PTSD is merely an unfortunate cost of war.]

[I pinched the title from the Huffington Post.]

Michael Moore, Oscar award winning director for Bowling for Columbine believes he has Donald Trump all figured out. First, his title for an open letter to “friends”:

Trump Is Self-Sabotaging Campaign Because He Never Really Wanted the Job in the First Place

Moore argues:

Donald Trump never actually wanted to be president of the United States. I know this for a fact….

“For a fact.”

Trump was unhappy with his deal as host and star of his hit NBC show , “The Apprentice” (and “The Celebrity Apprentice”). Simply put, he wanted more money….

There is more, of course, but Moore is just putting to paper what many political observers have been opining all along. Somewhat ironically, another HuffPo headline and story appears on the same day as Moore’s letter.

SLIME TIME: Ailes ‘Advising’ Trump on Hillary Debate

Roger Ailes, the influential former Fox News chairman who resigned from the network less than a month ago amidst widespread accusations of sexual harassment, is helping Donald Trump prepare for the presidential debates, according to the New York Times.

Ailes will be in the awkward position of helping to prepare Trump, who has made misogynistic remarks throughout his career, to debate the first woman to earn the presidential nomination of a major party.

For my money this is a bromance made in blogger heaven. If this report is true, the question will become, who has the bigger, stronger ego? Ailes has always slithered in the background of national politics away from the direct heat of the spotlight, but a major power broker nonetheless. Trump is a moth before klieg lights; he cannot avoid a spotlight and microphone.

I hope all this is true, because I want to see the name calling and shouting matches when Trump loses.

Trump: It is all your fault, Ailes.

Ailes: My fault? If you would have listened to me in the first place …

etc., etc., etc.

I can dream it now.

Trump Trounced … by a Woman; Ailes No Help

Yes, folks, there is a God.
