But there was some news to filter out to his audience this time. He introduced Speaker Paul Ryan ( to boos) as a “genius” who is like “fine wine”, an unspoken reference to the campaign days when he was smearing and threatening the declawed Badger. Now, Ryan is only smiling in Trump’s presence with marked servility in hopes that his master will give him a day off to reflect on his own uselessness.
It was another “Thank you” stop to upstage the reports of Russian hacking and Vladimir Putin’s honored seat at the Trump Tower dinner table. Trump never lets bad news interrupt his trajectory to the Oval Office. He merely dismisses his dark side with instant denials and moves on to Morning in America.
I would guess that his grand conclusion to the tour will be a spectacular procession from the airport to the Kremlin led by the Red Army band. Think that’s crazy? Isn’t everything that we know about the incoming Trump era? I mean, Paul Ryan as genius?
