Writer’s Lounge – Trump’s Ship Of Fools Administration


Trump’s Ship Of Fools Administration

As the impeached president, Donald Trump, has unsteadily purged his administration of anyone that had the barest instincts to attempt to restrain him and save himself from himself or save us from his foolishness – the cupboard has been restocked with blind loyalists.  That’s the way, uh-huh, he likes it.

Case in point, Trump’s appointed Surgeon General, Jerome Adams, who made the spectacularly and observably false claim that Trump is in even better physical condition than he himself is. 

The video clip below also deals with questions about COVID-19, that Adams dances around, but the absurd comment about Trump’s health, begins at the 5:23 mark. Once such a patently deceptive and reality deficient assertion is made, nothing else the Surgeon General says is credible.



Then there is White House Press Secretary, Stephanie Grisham, who sadly, has proved in no way to have been an upgrade from the former liar extraordinaire, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Grisham, appearing on – where else? Fox and Friends, was asked by bimbo co-host Ainsley Earhardt:

“Stephanie, when Bernie was on ‘Meet the Press’ over the weekend, Chuck Todd asked him if he was going to continue to be on the campaign trail because we keep hearing if you’re around 80 years old you are susceptible, and he is 78 years old.  President Trump is 73. Will he continue to have rallies and be out there on the campaign trail?”, to which Grisham replied:

“He actually just addressed this. Yes, he plans on still holding rallies. And I’ll tell you what, with our President — this man who doesn’t sleep and who I have seen work 15-16 hours a day every day — I have no problem thinking that he’s going to be just fine and just healthy.”

Here we go again, with the “Trump works his (capable) fingers to the bone” fairy tale. We know what Trump’s “executive time” consists of and how many grueling hours he puts in riding around in the presidential buggy at  his resorts, which we taxpayers foot the bill for.

Also, notice the comment, “who I have seen work 15-16 hours a day, every day”.  What, she spends 15 to 16 hours a day, monitoring his work habits?

This is so symptomatic of the sort of things Trump followers listen to and absorb unquestioningly. Anyone with so much as a microscopic sliver of objectivity and discernment, if told by any of Trump’s minions, or he himself, that, for example “the sun is extremely bright today”, would, even if it was 12 O’Clock noon, get up, step outside and verify it themselves.

That is how out of control this all has been and continues to be. Here’s the video:



There are some other interesting sub texts to how Grisham and other administration officials are trying to frame the coronavirus pandemic. 

If you listen carefully, you will notice that the approach they are taking, goes beyond comparing this viral outbreak to the annual flu (which she does, beginning at 1:27) and focusing on how this is just an old people problem. The sentiment is obviously that if this wasn’t an issue with the vulnerabilities of the elderly, there really would be nothing much to discuss.

It’s crass and insidious. The malarkey (St. Patrick’s is upon us), that she spews about how wonderfully active and energetic Trump is, begins with Earhardt’s question at 1:51 in the video.
