Animals do it all of the time. Their life or death depends on their performances. Never mind that they are sick, lame and feeling like crap. Never give this information to the predators and scavengers in the neighborhood. They will pursue you, track you down, grab your ass and have you for lunch. If possible, don’t ever blink. This is what rabbits learned eons ago. They blink less than any other mammal. They are trying to be invisible. But these folks forgot that we can still smell, and everything Trump stinks.
So this is why we are having these cameo performances by Trump, his lawyers, his staff and his relatives. Never act like any of these accusations apply to you personally. Step out of your consciousness and pretend like your life depends on it. Fake it with perfection. Smile. Grin. Or, better yet, yawn like you never heard the allegation, or care, and move on to what’s on the Trump Tower menu for lunch. They will probably have the Perrier and Trump Taco Bowl. Viva manana. Then they’ll go back to their luxury suites and puke their guts out and do it all over again the next day.
These are high stakes performances. These folks are akin to the theft that is not characterized by slipping a watch into a sleeve and slithering out the store entrance. No, these crimes are more typified by walking into the stereo store with a flatbed cart, and rolling a whole pallet of high end stereo systems out the front door like you owned the place, and loading them into your van. Go big. Dare to be great!!
This week, for what seems like the first time, son-in-law Jared Kushner’s voice was heard on TV for what seems to be THE FIRST TIME. I thought he was a mute.
They have made a big game calculation about how they are going to slip past this mess, spraying themselves with Pam spray early in the morning and keeping it up until their evening dining experience. This must be about the only pleasure that they have left. Gourmands to the end, with food and with slime.
