All that lying makes a body thirsty

No, kids. There’s just so much Trump toxin this political junkie can stomach, so I did NOT watch our Orange Overlord’s heavily hyped address wherein he emptily boasted about all his incredible accomplishments he achieved on his likely last Asian junket. So, damn, I also missed the scene wherein he rivaled “Li’l Marco Rubio” and the Florida junior senator’s clumsy spring water miscue he committed during a State of the Union rebuttal (which Donnie Dollfingers eagerly mocked during the 2016 campaign). Needless to say, it was hilarious, anyway. And so wondrously apropos for an apt description of our dotard-in-chief.

It floors me that the Rs are so desperate to get their harmful, warped agenda accomplished and so power-hungry that they go on tolerating someone so disconnected, inept, destructive, and incoherent as the Toxic Don. Maybe him launching an all-out nuclear exchange will change their minds? Naw. By then, it won’t matter how hard they try to invoke the 25th Amendment or impeachment proceedings; nuclear waste can’t vote.

It’s often a tell of someone who chronically lies to drink lots of water; lying is a great stress causer and it can dehydrate the prevaricator. I’ve been joking for some time now, “Q: When can you tell when Donald Trump is lying? A: His lips are moving.” It only stands to reason our Mango Mussolini was parched during his Asian trip boast fest; he didn’t tell a single truth in the entirety of his rambling speech.
