You’re fired

In a fast-follow-up to an item I recently posted, we see the signature line of the president-elect’s best known public persona, the boss on The Apprentice, is used against an errant member of the transition team, to wit, Michael Flynn, Jr., is fired from the transition team for using Twitter to spread a fake news story. Not that there’s anything intrinsically wrong with that… when The Donald himself does it, of course.
On this 75th anniversary of “the day that will live in infamy, America’s favorite “too much information” reporters at “538” tell us that there are only around 700,000 WWII veterans still around to note the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and “the Greatest Generation” is dying off at the rate of 400 or so a day; if you were 18 at the end of the war in 1945, you would be about 89 or so now. Something to think about, amidst our current “truth-challenged” era.
That, of course, and how the New York Observer, owned by Jared Kushner (yes, that Jared Kushner– the Donald’s son-in-law and tacit chief advisor) ran an editorial calling for an FBI crackdown on, naturally, anti-Trump protests. First Amendment: you’re fired.
