Unless you are like me, obsessed with politics, you probably don’t know who Reince Priebus is and was. If you read the attached article, and believe what it says about the little man, you are accepting an “alternative truth.”
From 2011 until he joined Trump’s circle of sinners, Priebus was the Chairman of the Republican National Committee. He was a complete failure. After his efforts to elect Mitt Romney failed miserably in 2012, he made a major announcement. He told Republican voters that his party was going to change. It would be more inclusive, and make concerted attempts to attract demographics other than old, white men and women.
So here we are after the ‘rigged’ election last November. We have an illegitimate president who is a white supremacist, Islamophobic, homophobic, autocratic, and a sexist.
Priebus led the “dump Trump” effort within the GOP establishment; he failed, and Trump made a fool of him. However, Priebus was selected as Trump’s chief of staff. However, leaks from the White House reveal that he is chief of staff in name only; a Trump clone, Steve Bannon is actually running the day to day operations in the White House.
Trump has both the lowest approval rating and the highest disapproval rating for any president in history during his “honeymoon” period. The latest Gallup Polls reveals that 42 percent of all voters believe Trump is doing a good job, and 52 percent think he is failing.
Now that you know something about Priebus, here is your ‘joke of the week.’
Priebus selected Trump’s nomination of Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court, an executive order deregulating the institutions which caused the great recession of 2008, and Trump’s unconstitutional immigration actions which are focused on Muslims as his ‘high points.’
“These are all things that 80 percent of Americans agree with,” Priebus said in summary, “and these are all things that President Trump is doing within 30 days.” Really?
100 percent of the information coming from Trump and his circle of sinners consists of “alternative facts.” They live in a fantasy world, or maybe they’re simply disillusional.
Trump’s singular ‘accomplishment’ in his first month was to make himself the most hated man in the world.
Priebus is the Trump administration’s court jester; but nobody’s laughing with him; they’re laughing at him.
