Today went weird.
Trump spoke at the CIA, and pretended – out loud – that the VIDEOS of him talking shit on the US intelligence agencies were fictional inventions of the media. Fucking videos. It seems, as I get older, that a generic Republican’s ability to commit to complete self-delusion grows in tandem with the lie’s potential to fuck shit up.
Later, again in contradiction to video and photo evidence, Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer stood in front of a room of “reporters” and lied his ass off. Saying that Trump’s inauguration was the most attended in history (total lie), that the DC metro reported record breaking ridership (another lie – it was actually below a normal Friday’s numbers). Lies. Just blunt fucking lies. The media, on the other hand, seems to still be avoiding using the accurate word LIE, in favor of blandness and chickenshit. “Falsehoods” is candyass speak for LIE. Feeling like the Bush Days all over again.
This is Day Fucking Two.
