It’s day 30 of the Apocalypse, and the good news is that civilians still control the military so far. Or the military controls the civilians. One of those. Both are true, unless they’re not, in the Trumpladyte chaos, aka The Transition, aka The Revolution.
Or, with today’s naming of yet another general to the cabinet, the Junta.
Like that new Air Force One plane Boeing is designing for the U.S. President. It will cost $4 billion, tweets the Sun King–egads, waste and fraud–unless it will cost the $170 million Boeing says is the contract price. It’s one of those.
After all, doesn’t a word mean what you choose it to mean–neither more nor less? And isn’t the question whether or not you can make words mean so many different things? Or, is the question, which is to be master? Or, did the Sun King have a great fall from the wall Mexico’s gonna pay for, unless it won’t? One of those.
In Trumpistan, truth is fungible.
