How stupid can they be?

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said this week that Obama administration aides left behind taunting notes for incoming Trump officials when they handed over their offices in 2017. “We came into the White House, I’ll tell you something, every office was filled with Obama books and we had notes left behind that said ‘you will fail,’ ‘you aren’t going to make it,’” Grisham told conservative radio show host John Fredericks in an interview Tuesday.

Think about this for just a split second (for you Deplorables take that red baseball cap off so those two remaining brain cells can get a little oxygen). One, if this was really true don’t you think the great pumpkin would have mentioned it in, oh I don’t know, a tweet or a thousand over the last three years? Or maybe he would have spent an hour or ten yelling about it at one of his inbreed, redneck rallies? Never mind that Ms. Grisham couldn’t or wouldn’t provide America with a photocopy of just one of these sinister notes that “filled” the White House. She can’t because, wait for it, it isn’t true.

Understand what Ms. Grisham’s role is as White House Press Secretary part three or four honestly I have lost track, it is not to hold press conferences because this White House doesn’t do that anymore. No, Ms. Grisham is simply an extension of Fox News. She is a Fox News special correspondent paid for by me and you. Trump depends on her to make-up crazy shit like notes left behind by Obama and go on friendly media outlets to confuse, disrupt, and distort the current narrative, the truth, that is playing out in the “fake news” media. And the sad part is it works.

Here is how she does it, Ms. Grisham makes-up some crazy random shit like “the Democrats are going to cancel Christmas”. Fox News picks it up. It becomes Breitbart News main headline with a picture portraying Hillary as the Grinch. Rush Limbaugh spends two days talking about it. Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity break it down with Geraldo Rivera and Judge Jeanine. Trump re-tweets it. My Deplorable Uncle posts it on Facebook. 97 of his old, white, racist friends comment and re-post it and after all of that, circling the Deplorable globe for two or three days it becomes “the truth”, until the next piece of damning evidence falls in our lap, which for Trump occurs in hours not days and then Ms. Grisham starts all over again; “Adam Schiff wants to put an excess weight tax on all Golden Corral buffets in Florida”.

So how stupid can they be? How stupid does Trump, Sean Hannity, Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, and Kevin McCarthy think the Deplorables really are? Pretty damn stupid. So stupid that they would believe Ms. Grisham’s story about the taunting notes from Obama. So stupid that they would believe Trump when he says he didn’t know the two thugs Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman despite picture after picture being unearthed showing the three of them together. So stupid that they would believe Trump has nothing to hide but we still can’t see his tax returns because they are simply too “complicated”. So stupid that they would believe that the Ukraine call was “perfect” but we can’t hear it from Perry, Pompeo, Cupperman, Mulvaney, Bolton or Giuliani. Only the Whistle-blower can confirm just how “perfect” it really was.

Over the coming weeks we are going to find out just how stupid Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham really are. Are they smart enough to save themselves? Are they smart enough to save the GOP? The real question is did they learn anything today? Did they learn from Gordon Sondland what the majority of us already knew or are they just like the Deplorables, willing to swallow the same old repackaged shit from Trump, Hannity and Ms. Grisham?

  1. To follow up, I heard if you sneeze with your eyes open, your eyeballs fall out. Remember that, MAGA Nation.

  2. I want to begin with a question. Do you really have followers who are “red baseball cap Deplorables”? I’m impressed. The closest I can come is my sister who threw her vote away in 2016 on someone who could not possibly win (third party candidate) rather than pick the less bad of the two who could win because she didn’t like either one.

    As an educator, I believe that almost anyone can learn almost anything … given enough time. (Granted, the human lifespan might not be long enough for some people to learn some things.) Given this professional opinion, the only ones who I consider to be stupid are those who choose … from laziness, apathy, fear, or “hardening of the categories” … to remain ignorant.

    Unfortunately, there are a lot more of them than there are of us.
