If chaos is the plan, then Trump is your man

Hard to imagine why anyone would want to watch Donald Trump spew his endless litany of lies, insults and vitriol after we’ve seen these re-runs for seven long years now. But sure enough, in an apparent attempt to capture some of the MAGA zombies, CNN stuck Trump on air for yet one more rerun of his old and increasingly boring show.
Hey, have you heard the one about how the 2020 election was stolen? Hard to believe you haven’t since it’s one of my best, most famous acts. Well let me tell you!
As for those mild-mannered tourists who strolled peacefully through the nation’s Capitol on Jan. 6 — sheesh, they’re being prosecuted by an evil federal government. But when I’m back in charge blanket pardons are on the way! As everyone knows, it’s nothing but patriotic to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power if you lose an election by storming the halls of Congress — and trying to lynch the vice-president, Speaker of the House, and any member of the House or Senate who isn’t wearing a genuine “Made in China” MAGA hat.
If we run the federal government like I run my successful businesses, it’s no big deal. You just don’t pay your contractors and if they give you a hard time or whine about it, sue ‘em! See, no problem whatsoever with all that debt ceiling baloney, just default and get it over with.
You can’t make this stuff up.
Were the consequences not so tragic, it would make great slapstick comedy. And if you’re waiting for the Democrats to do something about it, sorry, they’re busy “holding Republicans accountable.”
“To whom?” might be a timely question to ask about now as we continue to fall down the rabbit hole of national and state governmental chaos with Trump and the GOP.
