The American election campaign is quickly deteriorating into a bad reality show thanks to Donald Trump. Of all the analysis we heard on him, we thought the following most logical.
The primaries were indeed a reality show which Trump knew very well how to control and win, which he did. The general campaign is a completely different kettle of fish, one which Trump seems unable to figure out. It is calculated ground game, slower moving and much more detailed. As a businessman, he has never had to ask anyone what to do. He made his own decisions when he decided the time was right. It appears that nothing’s going to change now that he’s running for president.
Now for Khizr Kahn the gentleman who spoke at the DNC about his son who died a hero in Iraq. Don’t you wonder why this particular couple was chosen to speak at the Democratic convention? Blanche, please don’t tell me you believe that his name was picked out of a hat.
Did you notice how articulate he is? In fact, Mr. Kahn is a lawyer specializing in muslim immigration and is an advocate for Sharia law, a subject which he has written extensively about. He keeps saying that all he wants to do is go back and live his life quietly, yet takes every opportunity to go on any show that will have him. Now get this:
He has deleted his law firm’s website. In that site, Khan revealed that he spent nearly a decade working for the mega-D.C. law firm Hogan & Hartson—now Hogan Lovells LLP—which connects him directly with the government of Saudi Arabia and the Clintons themselves.
Saudi Arabia, which has retained the firm that Khan worked at for years, has donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation. Who knew? Hillary Clinton, despite the repeated urging of Trump, has refused to return the Clinton Cash money to the Saudis. What’s more, Hogan Lovells also did Hillary Clinton’s taxes—and helped acquire the patents for parts of the technology she used in crafting her illicit home-brew email server that the FBI director called “extremely careless” in handling classified information.
So now do you still think Hillary is honest? She and her missives are scheming lowlifes. Why Trump’s people couldn’t find out this information is a mystery. But we digress. Keep reading.
Obama came out in a news conference today and publicly told the Republicans to DUMP TRUMP. Yup, you read that correctly. The president of the United States of America is getting very involved in the election, up to his little beady eyeballs to be exact.He went so far as to tell the Republicans to un-endorse him.
Something smells here. What does he care if Trump runs? It looks like he’s going to lose by a landslide right now. Is it because things are going to come out about Hillary soon which could in fact push Trump higher in the polls? This election campaign is going from a gong-show to a espionage movie. Stay tuned.
Some of Blanche’s best friends are dentists and they will not be happy to read this little ditty. A 2015 review published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology concluded “the majority of available studies fail to demonstrate that flossing is generally effective in plaque removal”. Uh oh. It gets worse.
In a letter to the Associated Press, the U.S. government acknowledged the effectiveness of flossing had never been researched. The news agency looked at the most recent rigorous research, focusing on 25 studies that generally compared the use of a toothbrush with the combination of toothbrushes and floss. The findings? The evidence for flossing is “weak, very unreliable,” of “very low” quality, and carries “a moderate to large potential for bias.”
We think the jury is still out on this. You can be certain that the flossing companies will be digging up plenty of research to show that flossing is necessary. And your dentist is still going to sing the same tune: floss, floss, floss.
Remember that attempted coup d’etat in Turkey? Well, while we may not be hearing anything more about it, heads and businesses are rolling. Blanche’s husband does business in Turkey, buying textiles. One of the mills he buys from contacted him today saying that the government rolled into their premises, took all their computers and shut them down. It seems that anyone – a.n.y.o.n.e – who in any way shape or form did not support Ergoden, or if he smelled that they didn’t support him, is getting shut down. Dictatorship anyone?
Don’t say we didn’t warn you. If you’re going to Rio de Janiero for the olympics, bring your own water. You read that right Blanche. Leave your clothes at home and pack water.
Nothing is ready for the games, most importantly the disgustingly polluted water which doubles as the venue for the sailing, marathon swimming and windsurfing competitions. One swallow and it’s bathroom time. Oh wait, there are no bathrooms. They were never finished. Seems the $5 billion that was supposed to be spent on solving the sewage problem was spent on the stadiums. These games sound like a disaster waiting to happen.
Bad news for the artistic, eclectic and very interesting tourist area in Miami known as Wynwood. It has been identified as ground zero for the zika virus. The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention have told people to stay away from the entire neighborhood. Zak the Baker, one of the best little bakeries and eateries in Miami is going to suffer big time.
Can anyone tell Blanche what was the point of publishing not one but two nude photos of Melania Trump on the front cover of the New York Post?
We keep asking ourselves that out of the 300 million people in the United States, Clinton and Trump are the only two they could find to run for president, both of whom are intensely disliked? Now ya know. People will dig up the colour of the underwear (interhoisen) you wore when you were in grade 3.
Not that you could care less but we aim to keep you informed: Three top heavy hitters were fired from the Democratic National committee today: CEO Amy Dacey, communications director Luis Miranda and chief financial officer Brad Marshall. Wait till the next volley of emails from Wikileaks.
