He-who-must-not-be-named got a little undeserved praise from the press last week, and a little bump in his approval ratings too. After a possibly illegal airstrike on Syria using 59 tomahawk missiles (each missile costing upwards of 1 to 1.4 million dollars, incidentally...  how many meals-on-wheels is that?), certain pundits claimed he was looking presidential. Only days later, when asked about the airstrike in a tv interview, the vulgarian dolt waxed poetic about a chocolate cake he'd been eating and actually forgot which country he bombed. NO, HE ACTUALLY FORGOT WHICH COUNTRY HE BOMBED! It's like we're living in some absurdist play where an imbecile king delivers a moral about celebrity and corruption being the undoing of democracy, except it's not LIKE that, it IS that. And it's not a play, it's real life!

So, the simpleton narcissist man-baby gets some attention when he blows something up (even though, from all accounts, the strike accomplished nothing and the airfield is still operational), and today, he drops a bomb on Afghanistan. Not just a bomb, mind you, but the largest conventional bomb that's ever been used. Reading about the potential destruction of this bomb (a GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB), nicknamed the "mother of all bombs"), I am overwhelmed to consider the death and destruction it's most likely responsible for. I haven't seen reports yet, but one article I read said it's explosion will cause deafness to any person within 2 miles of the blast. Happy Easter.
Add to this fresh horror the threats and saber-rattling in the direction of Korea. This know-nothing-reality-tv-bully-carnival-barker-shit-bag is gonna get us all killed. I'm only glad I'm in New York City. I'm imagining one upcoming day, probobly not too far in the future, I'm going to feel it get suddenly very warm. I'll turn to whoever is nearby and say, "Wow, it sure is getting hot. Do you feel that?" and BOOM. It'll be over. It's really too bad for the folks out there in the provinces. They'll all have to deal with the fallout. Ya' know, foraging for food, the zombie apocalypse... you've seen the movies. But us here in the urban centers will very gratefully be spared such unpleasantries. 

Oh, America. What have you done?
