A Fantasy

At last, I’ve realized what’s wrong with our president-elect! It is the only explanation for his childish behavior. Donald Trump is a victim of progeria, the genetic disorder that causes premature aging in children. He is really only a nine year old but just appears, due to the disease, to be almost an aging adult. I’d have to re-check the puckered gold-fish mouth syndrome to see if that is typical of clinical signs of the disease. There is hardly anything else to find as a rational explanation for his ongoing preoccupation with electronic game-playing (Tweeting at all hours of the night) and his incessant insistence that he is first and best and yugely important and successful.

Alas, children of all ages are fascinated with the wonderful world of Alice in Wonderland.” “‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.’ ‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.” ‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master—that’s all.'”

Oh Dear, I’ve just realized that Donald  Trumpty is really Humpty Dumpty. His words, in fact, his reality, is what he chooses it to mean!

TRMS, i.e., Rachel Madow, gave ample evidence last evening that the Trumpsters, i.e., Donald Trump supporters are living in an alternate-universe. Their universe does not admit to facts; they acknowledge only what they are a priori convinced is truth. Any contradiction to their pre-conceived trumpful-truthfulness, or truthful-trumpfulness, is prima facie evidence of ‘libral’ falsehood.

So, it should surprise no one that the release of information, by the CIA, that hacking from sources high in the Russian government to undermine the recent US election and nudge the election toward The Donald, will be tweeted aside as more ‘libral’ propaganda. So, ‘The Master of Words,’ Humpty Trumpty has spoken. The truth means, neither more nor less, than what he chooses it to mean.

Oh, what a fantastic administration this is going to be!!
