If the recent performance of our dominant political party, and its titular head, have not given you the deep-down dismals yet, you should get a load of the (three-hour!) interview given by the president* to The Wall Street Journal. Holy buggered Baal, this is like something you hear when you’re trapped in a subway car at midnight. Let us start with the braggadocious part:
“I created maybe the greatest brand.”
“I was always the best athlete, people don’t know that.”
“And then people say oh, is he a smart person? I’m smarter than all of them put together, but they can’t admit it.”
1) Coca-Cola? GE? Swedish Fish?
2) Except for those pesky bone-spurs that kept cropping up at the draft board. Another great career lost to injury.
3) “I have a great brain. You want to see it? Let me just loosen these lugnuts here.”
Then, there’s the part where he accuses an FBI agent of treason. I am not kidding.
And what went on with the FBI, where a man is tweeting to his lover that if [Hillary Clinton] loses, we’ll essentially go back to the — we’ll go to the insurance policy, which is — if they lose, we’ll go to phase 2, and we’ll get this guy out of office. I mean, this is the FBI we’re talking about. I think that is — that is treason. See, that’s treason right there … By the way, that’s a treasonous act. What he tweeted to his lover is a treasonous act.
“What he tweeted to his lover is a treasonous act” is the first line of a novel when Allen Drury comes back from the grave.
Then, there’s the mystery solved of why NBC hates him so much.
I then go into, in addition to that, part-time, like five percent a week, I open up a television show. As you know, “The Apprentice” on many evenings was the number one show on all of television, a tremendous success. It went on for 12 years, a tremendous success. They wanted to sign me for another three years and I said, no, I can’t do that. That’s one of the reasons NBC hates me so much. NBC hates me so much they wanted — they were desperate to sign me for — for three more years.
Somebody at NBC is going to hell for this.
