Closing Thought–10Aug17

Finally!  Call It What It Is!

Our fearless leader gets a daily intel briefing once a day…..but he gets two briefings that massages his ego…..

President Donald Trump has a folder delivered to him twice a day that’s full of positive headlines, tweets, interviews, and sometimes photographs of him on TV “looking powerful,” VICE News reported on Tuesday.

The folder, dubbed “the Propaganda Document” by some in the White House, is prepared by the communications team. The only feedback the White House press shop has ever gotten about the folder, VICE said, was that “it needs to be more f—— positive.”

The process of putting the folder together is long and tedious, and starts at 6 a.m. ET every morning in the Republican National Committee’s “war room,” according to VICE. Staffers keep tabs on the morning shows on three major cable news networks — CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News — while searching for positive headlines about Trump on the internet. They then email the White House communications team proposed tweets, transcripts, and headlines to include.

The “Folder”……..Consisting of about 20-25 pages, the packet is filled with screenshots of positive cable news headlines, admiring tweets, transcripts of positive TV interviews, praise-filled news stories, and sometimes just pictures of the president on TV looking powerful, Vice News reported, citing White House sources.

The folder is said to be compiled from the clippings that are sent to the White House from the Republican National Committee’s “war room,” which monitors local and national news, cable television, social media, digital media, and print media.

Twice a day he gets his ego massaged….at 0930 and 1630 hrs…..

Intel reports are not important enough for 2 briefings but his ego is……we now know what is important and what is not…..

STOP!  The parade I want to get off this float!

Day draws silently to an end…..the grill is hot and the chicken awaits…..have a wonderful evening….see you guys later….chuq

  1. That folder thing must cost a bomb to produce, given the salaries of the staff involved, and printing. What a complete waste of money!
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. Damn, I was hoping you accidentally passed on an “Onion” article or something… This is something I thought could only be a scene in a bad political thriller (or parody of one).

      1. Pathetic and further proof of his narcissistic mental problem. I feel very exposed and in danger knowing he is “in charge”.

  2. I live in a county where 74.6% thought he was more capable to handle the job than Hillary Clinton. Claustrophobic! I am shocked to find out which of my friends actually voted for that con man, mainly because it includes virtually all of them!
