A few gleaming nuggets from Trump Americana to brighten the remainder of your day:

Word from the White Guy House is that the president wants to rename his proposed tax reform measure to be the “Cut Cut Cut Act.” More fertile an identity for his base. No, I didn’t make this up. Just Donald being Donald, a “nut, nut, nut” being a “nut, nut, nut.”

FROM CNN came the report of how Donald Trump Jr., the royally rich dauphin of the guy in the White House, politicized Halloween with a lesson in economic systems. He said he would redistribute his child’s candy to “teach her about socialism.”

Junior tweeted: “I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight and give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to (sic) early to teach her about socialism.” No, Junior. Shouldn’t you have also taught her about the evils of Fascism?

Watching  Virginia Republican U.S. Rep. Dave Brat defend the alleged virtues of the new tax proposal, denying that it would mostly benefit the wealthy, it reminded me of the perceptive words of my Republican father-in-law, who  warned me more than once that:  “Figures don’t lie. But liars do figure.”
