It is less than 24 hours since El Caudillo del Mar-a-Lago and his faithful henchpeople sent militarized police hurtling into a crowd, where they beat an Australian cameraman, flash-banged and tear-gassed peaceful protestors, and bum-rushed a priest out of the church so the president* could stand up outside the church and hold up a Bible in his hand for the cameras. This was to demonstrate the president*’s courage in the face of danger and to counter the widely held impression that he was befouling himself in a bunker throughout the weekend. Hey, it fooled Scott Walker.
So, less than a day after the president* rousted demonstrators for a photo op, and turned Lafayette Park into the octagon of his dreams, what’s his Secretary of State up to on Tuesday morning? From The Daily Beast:
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is scheduled to meet with survivors of China’s 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, according to his State Department schedule.
Send this scene back to the writers room immediately. I think they’re all drunk in there.
