Political discourse.

Mexico’s next president. Trump’s insult at Mark Sanford… did it draw laughs? Math as a weapon. Sinclair’s forced commentary on immigration. Next door as the hyper-local facebook. Kim Jong Un productions With North at the helm of the NRA, Trump now has one of his avid supporters leading an army of gun

So.  The Donald — out in Minnesota — makes a comment in shoveling a protester out of the arena… “Was that a man or a woman? Because he needs a haircut more than I do,” Trump said. “I couldn’t tell! I couldn’t tell!” Interesting to note the responses to this.  Cue the base, who I […]

Noted today’s episode of the MeTV airings of “Diff’rent Strokes”, and the basic evolution of a television sitcom in a prior era.  (To be sure, the sort of meta-study level on which one ought watch  — even somewhere off as background noise — such shows.) Looking it up on the listing of

I have no idea if Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong Un is, in and of itself, good.   I’d sure would feel better about it if we didn’t have the President claiming he’ll know “in a minute” Kim Jong’s intentions.  (Cut to the chase: enhanced legitimacy twined with self preservation? )
