Another Day: I Don’t Know If I should Be Laughing or Crying!

TGIF.

At the risk of stating the obvious, it’s a crazy world with norms and traditions collapsing into the chaos of the new Trump era.

After seven years of chanting “Get rid of Obamacare” the Republican party has imploded after six months. All repeals attempts have failed. So, where does that leave us, the American people?

In limbo apparently. Was that a win or a loss? Should we laugh or cry?

In his usual churlish manner Trump tweeted that he hoped Obamacare would fail now – and damn the consequences. The good news is the chance for a bi-partisan agreement on health care looks possible.

Yo! It’s the Mooch!

How about Trump’s new Communications director, Anthony “Mooch” Scaramucci?

It’s like watching a cartoon as Spicy is fired by Trump and we’re introduced to the Mooch doing his best Fonzi¬†from the Happy Days sitcom.

But Fonzi didn’t swear like a sailor, and he had a conscience. The Mooch is free of any conscience, and almost lies as much as Trump. Bringing the Mooch aboard was akin to throwing a hand grenade into the West Wing.

Just the way Trump likes it.

I got a good laugh watching a little girl scold her Dad for leaving the toilet seat up! Gotta love some of the things kids say.

Speaking of laughing, did you hear about that guy who killed his wife aboard a cruise ship because she was laughing at him? That’s a twist on the old adage “Laughter is the best medicine!”

As It Stands, may you have a grand weekend!
