WSJ: "Falsehoods... fake President"

We're passengers on a bus without a driver.

If the Wall Street Journal calls out your lies and calls you a "fake President," you know your credibility is low.

That is, unless you are dt, in which case this editorial does not penetrate the layers of unreality you have built around yourself.

This statement made by a conservative newspaper owned by Rupert Murdoch confirms the realization I came to on Tuesday evening: we have no president.

We are passengers on a bus that has no driver.  No capable person has hands on the steering wheel, a foot on the gas but ready to move to the brakes.

No driver is watching signals, stop lights, and other traffic.

That's scary because if something serious happens in the world that requires US attention, no one is there to analyze, make a judgment, and organize an appropriate reaction--as the WSJ notes in the first sentence of this editorial.

Another scary factor is that a crazy person such as dt or Steve Bannon could grab the wheel or clomp on the brakes or make a sharp turn at any point.

Every day has held an unprecedented event for about a year now, but here's another: the WSJ comparing 45 to a drunk.

The editorial says that although FBI director James Comey exposed dt's wiretap tweet as a lie, " the President clings to his assertion like a drunk to an empty gin bottle, rolling out his press spokesman to make more dubious claims... that perhaps the Obama administration had subcontracted the wiretap to British intelligence."

It's not a political rival making this comparison.  It's the conservative, usually, Wall Street Journal.  Anything can happen these days.
