Spanners in yer Trumpanity

What are the odds that our hero did this to himself?

Fox News host Sean Hannity announced that he has logged back onto Twitter to expose “deepstategate,” as his formerly compromised account appears to be back to normal.

Hannity’s profile went off the grid for several hours Friday night after it was apparently “briefly compromised,” according to Fox News’ PR team.

It’s not as dramatic as, say, vandalizing your own cemetery. But throwing a big gubmint spanner into your own Twitter does have a certain je ne sais quack.

Oh Yes, Sean. The mailmen of #DEEPSTATE have been banging away at their keyboards trying to log you off your Twitter. And Oh Yes you would have certainly died had the glitch gone on any longer, we all know that’s how life works.

Hannity has no idea what a miserable puke he is. He doesn’t know why he’s roughly as popular as the Plague – even with Twitter hackers.

Fox News may be a big deal, and Hannity is certainly a giant of their cable empire. But that doesn’t mean people like him. He is broadly despised. People can’t stand him or his best pal.

Donald Trump is refusing to visit the UK unless Theresa May can ensure that he is not met with protests.

Bloomberg revealed that Trump complained in a phone call to May about the “negative coverage” he has received in the British press.

And Donald had a good laugh at his own expense, ha ha ho ho. You funny funny Brits. O Theresa what can a poor President do? (JK!)

May told the US president that that was how the UK media operated and she could do little to change it.

Trump went on to say that he would not visit the UK unless there were guarantees that he would not be met with protests.

Advisers who had been listening to the phone call are reported to have been “astonished” at the demands.

U.S. News and World reports: When President Duterte called, he didn’t want any trouble. He and his aides wouldn’t make the flight if protesters were going to show up while he’s there. “I’m not taking any shit from your people, okay Don?” “Okay Rod,” Trump replied, and then he called out the National Guard. The two presidents then had a good laugh at our expense, ha ha ho ho.

Anyway I figured I would google it, and of course:

After the election, Mussolini closed opposition newspapers and banned public protest meetings. He declared all political parties illegal except for his own Fascist Party. He outlawed labor unions and strikes. He also established a political police force, the Organization for Vigilance and Repression of Antifascism…

By 1925, Mussolini had adopted the title, Il Duce (the Leader). He delivered emotional public speeches, swaying back and forth, puffing his chest, and holding his hands on his hips. The crowds chanted back fascist slogans such as “Il Duce is always right!”

Of course he’s always right. It says so right there at Circus Massimo.

I don’t know how many times I’ve heard Donald say something that sounded altogether Fascist and then googled it. Too many times to count. Must be a dozen times I’ve started with The Leader and ended up with Il Duce. But AFAIK this is the first time I ever managed to close the loop:

“Why should I be politically correct?” he said. “I’m turning out to be right. I’m always right … you’ll see, you’ll see. I’m always right.”

Hooray!
