Ugh, All of These Dudes

Donald Trump sent out his Chief of Staff John Kelly to say some shit and try to change the conversation from Trump being a dirtbag to another Gold Star Family.

And so Kelly said a bunch of stuff, and the media ate it up, because that's what they do.


And has anyone told the press that John Kelly is Donald Trump's lapdog?


But I'm sure it's all fine that the political world has spent the day gushing over a speech by George W. Bush — during which he didn't even say Trump's name and failed to atone for the way-paving he did for Trump's presidency — and then pretending that there was some other purpose to one of the three generals helping run the White House standing at a podium and explaining what happens after soldiers are killed, other than shutting down criticism, especially when he subsequently refused to call on reporters who don't personally know any Gold Star Families.

Being overly enamoured with white dudes is definitely the wisest thing we could all be doing with our energies in this moment and every other.
