The Power of Bullshit

Good Day World!

I'm feeling philosophical today, inspired by the awesome power of Trump's bullshit to deflect critics.

After Trump finished molesting the American flag during a recent CPAC gathering, he summed up all of the investigations into his numerous criminal activities as...bullshit.

At any other time in history Americans would have been shocked to hear a president use such a vulgar word to sum up his opinion about legitimate ongoing investigations by the House and a special counsel.

In the Trump era, partisan bullshit has been so plentiful I'm frankly surprised he hasn't use the word more often. It is a powerful word. It's also a word that a demented authoritarian would use when the walls of truth are closing in on them.

In Trump's world of fake news and wild conspiracy views, the word conveys a oneness with the common man. It takes him from being a billionaire to a blue collar kinda guy.

In another era bullshit was mocked. It didn't have the power it has today, thanks to our liar in chief. In the end, bullshit is simply bull feces dressed up in ideological rants and served up by assholes like Trump.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
