Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

All Quiet On The Wastrel Front

Someone took away Der Gropenfuhrer's Twitter account?  It's been unusually quiet from the White House.  There could be several reasons:

1) They are hunkering down and trying to figure out how to run a government.  I imagine Reince Priebus and Jared Kushner eating pad thai and pouring over a copy of Government For Dummies.

2) We are exhausted.  The press and the Resistance are simply too exhausted over the past month.  So is the Trumpenreich.  Trump has the energy and attention of a toddler, so he's probably just napping.

3) His staff are learning to control him.  There was a report in Politico I won't link to that suggests that the staff are starting to control the flow of information to Trump in order to keep him placated.

Whatever the reason, Friday is coming, and it seems about time for a major scandal to hit the news or Trump to issue a confusing and contradictory executive order that screws everyone up.
