(There is much scattering about as 150 reporters squeeze in close to the president who has brought his favorite lap-dog Senator Mitch McConnell out for a quick look-see.)

Standing for Hypocrisy - tough room!

poster210x230f8f8f8 pad210x230f8f8f8.lite 1Tuesday in the White House briefing room Sarah Huckabee Sanders told us the President was joking about having an I.Q. contest with Secretary of the State Rex Tillerson – and she told the assembled reporters we needed to get a sense of humor.
I immediately said “Tough room” in my best Rodney Dangerfield impression. I got a laugh, but I didn’t do it loud enough to disrupt anything. Perhaps I should have.

Tom Petty and President Trump's ultimate con job

MC DC Wash Rinse Repeat in BW 1aAnd it's hard to say
Who you are these days
But you run on anyway
Don't you baby? – Tom Petty

The key to understanding President Trump is in realizing that nothing he or his administration does or says is as it seems.
He tells his staff they should let people think he’s crazy. His Christian spokesperson tells us it isn’t time for gun legislation that could have the very Christian outcome of saving lives because it’s time for Christian mourning of the victims from the latest and deadliest in a long line of mass murders.

The Ride of the Valkyries on the South Lawn

DK6lVU5UQAAlxhSTelling us in the Rose Garden on Tuesday that he would cut taxes “tremendously” for the Middle Class, President Donald Trump seemed satisfied he had put to bed rumors that he was putting his faith in tax cuts that would benefit the rich.
Thursday Chief Economic Adviser Gary Cohn said he couldn’t guarantee some middle class families wouldn’t pay more in taxes under the plan. He also said Americans are so self centered they’re only worried about how much they have to pay- not how much others (i.e. the richest) pay. “How much goes in their pockets versus how much goes to the government?” Cohn said. True, but we also want to know how much we’re paying or keeping versus how much the rich get to keep.

President Trump is no Super Hero

trumpnmePresident Donald Trump is the rabble rouser still looking for his Super Hero moment.
We all want one. I remember mine well. I was delivering pizzas in college and had just left a girl’s dorm at Stevens College and was running down an icy sidewalk. I hit a short flight of stairs and jumped to the bottom only to slip and fall – because you know I was running on ice. But I didn’t get hurt. I tucked and rolled and ended up in a Super Hero pose then got up quickly and kept running.

Maybe it really is all a flashback - POTUS is cool

CNGXcmfUcAEHvmpI woke up in one of “those” moods.
What kind of mood do you ask? Well, I guess somewhere between “Come on people now, smile on your brothers, everybody get together try to love one another right now,” written by Chet Powers and famously recorded by the Youngbloods and H.L. Mencken’s feelings about religion: “In America it is used as a club and a cloak by both politicians and moralists, all of them lusting for power and most of them palpable frauds.”

It's all about Russia -stupid

trumpnmeSarah Huckabee Sanders walked out to the podium twice this week and once again spread a false narrative about former FBI Director James Comey. She accused him of illegally leaking information to the public when she and everyone in the present administration have absolutely no proof of it – and in fact have absolute proof that when Comey leaked memos he wasn’t leaking classified information and therefore he didn’t do anything illegal.
It doesn’t matter. The President’s base will buy it. They’ll believe it. They’ll endorse it. They will repeat it. They will cheer it and they will yell “Fake News” at anyone who says otherwise.

Wile E. Coyote and the Metro rider

MC DC Wile E. Coyotes Acme Purchases Better Than Metro in BWThere is little doubt the Metrorail system is in desperate need of repair.
Despite a “Safetrack” plan by Metro to bring Metro “Back 2 Good” and despite all the inhouse ads on Metro touting its increased efforts to fix escalators, tracks, bring new metro rail cars online and clean up the metro stations, the federal government recently outlined more than 100 deficiencies the system still faces.
We at The Sentinel decided it was best since our readers are some of the most frequent Metro riders as they go to and from work, to take a close look at the Metro system.

What a Crowd! What a Turnout!

IMG 0124Rex Tillerson dropped the bomb.
When asked on Fox News about racism in America and this country’s attitude toward neo-Nazi marchers in Charlottesville, VA Tillerson said “I don’t think anyone doubts the American people’s values . . . equal treatment of people the world over.”
When asked if our president Trump shares this values, he replied, “The president speaks for himself.”
If you’ve ever watched Blazing Saddles that equates to the “Son, you’re on your own,” comment from the preacher to the new sheriff.
Secretary of Defense James Mattis doubled down on that sentiment when a day or two later he told a small group of soldiers, “Our country, right now, it’s got problems that we don’t have in the military. You just hold the line until our country gets back to understanding and respecting each other and showing it.”
Mattis also said our country has two distinct powers for the world: inspiration and intimidation. “The power of inspiration—we’ll get the power of inspiration back. We’ve got the power of intimidation, and that’s you, if someone wants to screw with our families, our country and our allies.”
Mattis’ s first statement spoke to Charlottesville and the growing tension and divisiveness inside our country – but the second statement – particularly the “power of inspiration” was a not-so-subtle reference to our current Commander in Chief.
This week the president helped to drive his wedge – not the golf type – deeper into the American psyche when he pardoned Sheriff Joe Arpaio. This highly controversial decision further encouraged his supporters, whoever may be left among that group, but it was assailed by Democrats and Republicans alike.

I confess! The President is Right!

- President Donald Trump speaking about the media during a Phoenix Rally.

Well I guess the jig is up folks. I am going to be the first to turn in my secret Liberal/Jewish/Muslim media cabal decoder ring. The president has found us out.
If it hadn’t been for Trump, we might’ve gotten away with it, but he proved too much for us.
