‘Tis the treason…

We’ve survived our likely only Trump Thanksgiving, wherein our Orange Overlord tweeted endless gobs of whiny bullshit hoping to distract us from the Russiagate and sex predator scandals and blatant graft and corruption that could very well damn his illicit regime…

Now it’s jolly time for the likely last Trump Xmas Season, wherein we get to witness America’s greatest embarrassment make a Scroogely ass of himself, demanding we all say “Merry Christmas” to each other (when he himself was NOT a practicing Christian until 2015!) and do his level best to ruin our country and this planet before he’s finally ejected, if necessary bodily, from the Oval Office.

I’ve noticed something most unsettling since Donnie Dollfingers was “elected” about a year ago; the quantity of crass phishing scams and such other schemes have blossomed online and on our phones. Our household has had all sorts of odd callers claiming to be from the “U.S. Grant Department” (there is no such body) or they’re special agents from the IRS (the IRS NEVER calls, they transact through the mail), or they’re MicroSoft techs who have magically detected a serious problem with your computer (as if), or they’re plugging some fabulous investment scheme that will be a sure-fire doubling of your income, blah blah blah. Before Dirty Don took office, these calls plagued us sporadically. Now, they’re as often as three a week, sometimes three a day. The obvious link? Our supposed president*, a man so rife with intimidation, corruption, and sleaze he’s practically a poster child for it all. Donnie Doublescoops has fostered an environment that is friendly to graft and sleaze; I doubt his eventual successor Mike Pence will do much to stop it… It’ll just be more “Christian.”

Happy friggin’ holidays, kids. It’ll get worse from here, I’m afraid.
