To gain insight into what's happening in The White House today, I highly recommend watching this short video .
It shows the legendary comedians, Abbott and Costello, performing one of their most famous routines: "Who's On First?"
Trump's recent firing of F.B.I. Director Comey has turned into a dark comedy routine where everyone from V.P. Pence, Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer, to Sarah Huckabee Sanders explain why Trump fired Comey.
The real laugher however, was when Trump went on 60 Minutes and was interviewed by Lester Holt right after the firing.
Contradicting his propaganda stooges, Trump said he had already decided to fire Comey a long time ago. In show business they call that a Punch Line.
A fitting description in this case.
That is just one example why Trump should have stayed in show business. At least he got nice laughs. People weren't making fun of him. They enjoyed watching him harass, make fun of, and fire other people.
Firing people these days is a tough call for Trump. He can't just snap his tiny fingers like when he starred on The Apprentice. The Comey firing has turned into a shit storm.
Millions of people are not laughing nicely at his antics like bullying Congress, our judicial system, minorities, and anyone in the way of his power grabs.
Comedians have made Trump a laughingstock in America (and abroad). That makes him sad. And mad.
Trump's 21st Century version of Abbott and Costello's "Who's On First" should be called, "Who Knew What, and When," in a nod to Howard Baker's famous comment during the WaterGate investigation, "What did the president know and when did he know it?"
Time for me to walk on down the road...
