Mr. Trump's statement the calm before the storm seemed to come right after
Trump's anger at Secretary of State Tillerson's alleged comment about Mr. Trump being a moron.
When asked what he meant by the statement or even what it was in reference to, we got the standard "you'll see" answer.
And with that we are off awaiting the next episode of this stranger than fiction reality show.
This kind of cryptic statement is just the latest in a string of figure it out for yourself bizarre things Trump has said.
Isn't it odd that even though he purports to have "the best words" he doesn't seem to be able to find them when it matters most.
While other presidents have used their standing to give comfort to those who have faced tragedy and grief, Mr Trump seems content to belittle and shame.
Take the people of Puerto Rico, after a public scolding of San Juan's Mayor and reminding his audience that Katrina was a real tragedy because more people died.
And shame on Puerto Rico for messing with the budget.
He gleefully tossed rolls of paper towels into a crowd of people who are still without power and drinking water. And when criticized for his response to the relief efforts such as they are, he gave his own version of what has transpired under his watch.
It appears to be the storm after the storm. But perhaps Jon Stewart put it best...
It's getting closer to that ghosts and goblin's time of year.
So, putting all the insanity of politics aside for now we offer this;
Did you know that there is a ghost cat in the Capital building?
The ghost cat or ‘Demon Cat’ is a popular story around Washington DC. The cat apearently haunts the basement of the Capitol building at night and can usually be spotted around the hall between the Crypt of the Capitol and the Old Supreme Court Chamber.
Tourists can even see little paw prints on the floors of the hallway if they look close enough. The story goes that Capitol Hill (then Jenkins Hill), was once the home of a den of black cats, but once construction of the Capitol began (in 1794) the cat’s den was destroyed along with the family of cats.
The mother cat now roams the halls of the basement of the Capitol building where presumably the den was located, searching for her young. Even though there are no unattended pets allowed in the Capitol, late night staffers and visitors have noticed an animal dashing here and there around this area of the building.
We're keeping a list and checking it twice...( if only this was about Santa...)
We have a list of things that keeps us up at night and it seems to get longer day by day.
So, we decided to write them down and lucky you, we're going to share them!
Some are bad some are worse, some are petty grievance's and some are even remarkably happy things
(although those are few and far between).
#1 The ACA is still alive!
After heart wrenching scenes of disabled and wheelchair bound protesters being dragged off and made to leave the place where they were having open public discussions on the latest iteration of Republicans toxic health care bill. Several Republican Senators and all Dems could not be persuaded.
John McCain once again road to the rescue.
#2 Puerto Rico is part of the America!
You don't tweet about bull shit for days after a disaster and then blame your disregard of the situation on the victims of said tragedy. ( *see; Donald it's not about you!")
And if that weren't bad enough, after more criticism he doubled down and did it again!
#3 In a press conference, Donald Trump patted himself on the back so hard saying things like "how wonderfully they were handling the devastation in Puerto Rico", he almost beat himself to death!
Just like most things in this world, the hurricane, the devastation, the relief efforts, Donald,*"it's NOT about you!"
#4 The first amendment applies to EVERYONE! It's in the constitution. Donald would know that if he ever took the time to read it.
#5 Note to Sarah Huckabee Sanders; It is NEVER appropriate for the President Of The United States to call people "son's of bitches"
#6. As to North Korea; Donald listen...You don't rattle the cage of a totally insane monkey!
Mr.Jong-un, the same goes for you.
