When Donald Trump returned home from his nine-day itch to convert his visited countries into luxurious golf resorts he promptly told us that he had “hit a home run”. Like most of his idle notions, his boast far betrayed any sense of reality. From all reports, it was a badly executed bunt.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said he had convinced our allies that the U.S was no longer a reliable partner.

Despite his overseas respite from his chaotic effort to make America great for all future generations, at least those who manage to survive his toxic disregard for clean air and water, the reports from inside the White House grew worse to resemble colony collapse disorder. Even the wimpish Reince Priebus, the chief of staff, and other menials were at risk for their next paychecks.

And Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner was said to be debating whether to take the first step on the plank. Clearly, Trump has been playing Scrabble with his staff as he prepares to throw in his letters.

Oh, the Tweeter-in-chief did grieve that he was not getting any earned credits in the media as well as the public.

I think I know why.
