Spicey Hour 6.6.2017

June 6, 2017

I got to watch Sean Spicer do the White House press briefing today. One of the best parts of this is that I know my wife, Megan, is watching as well, so we can trade texts about our observations. Mostly they consist of “Can you believe he said that???” or “What a bunch of crap!” or similar blurbs. However, today she hit the nail on the head perfectly with this comment after Spicer was done:

I’m beginning to believer that spicy isn’t the press secretary anymore… They fired him months ago and nobody told him. That’s why he hasn’t had any conversations with the president about anything. Now they just let him do his thing. I hope they let him keep his red stapler.

I think that just about sums it up. I get that Spicer can’t possibly cover everything that might come up, but this is getting ridiculous.

Questions On Thursday

June 1, 2017

There’s been a lot posted lately on Facebook and other social media about the state of our current president. Honestly, though, I have not seen a dissection of President Trump’s basic motivations that I can completely agree with. I agree that he is narcissistic, bigoted, and generally a spoiled Rich Kid. But what exactly is it that prompts the tweeting at midnight, the infamous “covfefe” tweet as a prime example? The long, rambling, and occasionally incoherent statements in his speeches? I disagree with his policies and positions on everything from health care to foreign policy, but I’ve disagreed with previous presidents on those issues, and not felt as sick and doomed as I do now with Trump as our President. I believe that there is something very wrong with Donald Trump’s physical and mental health. Is it bad medication, is it a disease or disorder of the blood or brain, could it be the onset of dementia? I’m not a doctor, I don’t even play one on TV, but I can’t believe that all of the chaos and comedy and horror of Trump’s words and actions are that of a man sound of mind and body.

Or he’s just one of the worst human beings on earth. And millions of people voted for him. Which might say a lot about where our country is going if we don’t stop screwing around.

Maybe that’s why I’m searching for a different reason.

Hi, Nice To See You

June 1, 2017

Before I post the next blog entry, I just want to say that I’ve been away from writing for far too long. This means that my style and eloquence will be a little less polished than maybe it used to be. Please bear with me as I try to to get back in the game.

Ok, so it wasn’t that great before, either, but you get my drift.

I’d like most of all to thank my beautiful and talented and incredibly smart wife, Megan, for encouraging me to do this again.
