My point, I guess, is that this reckless sabre rattling is nothing new. What's new is the fool in command. Trump is offensive in every manner you can name. I think he particularly grates on me because I've always hated reality television, and that more than anything else defines his public persona. After decades of avoiding reality shows like the plague, my fellow Americans elected a reality star president of the United States, and he is now doing his level best to turn our very reality into reality television. Now we not only have to watch the lousy show every day - we are bit players in the freaking show! From my perspective, it's like drinking a pint of urine the moment you get out of bed in the morning. Pleasant.
What's worse than that, though, is the empire crap. Posers like Pompeo and Bolton will use Trump to get their beloved war with Iran. That - and not so much the reality show BS - is what we need to concentrate our energy on.
