Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, Trump Edition, Or Else Insanity Is The New Normal.

A banker named David Hannum, in regard to one of Barnum’s hoaxes once said: “There is a sucker born every minute”.  And you know what, he was absolutely right. As it turns out all the misguided people who voted for Donald Trump are just finding that out.

I can understand how the uneducated, and uninformed, as well as those who worked in occupations like mining, steel, and others, felt that electing an outsider who promised to go to Washington and “drain the swamp”  would have a certain appeal. However, what they found out is draining the swamp leaves only a huge pile of shit.

The first red flag moment should have been when Trump filled his cabinet positions with millionaires and billionaires who have done nothing but spent their entire lives screwing the poor and middle class. The rest of his cabinet he filled with; Generals, incompetents and fools. Putting Ben Carson, the retired lunatic neurosurgeon in charge of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is just one example.  Danger, Will Robinson, Danger, Danger!

Did this raise any alarm with Trump supporters? Nope! As a matter of fact I actually had a Trump supporter suggest to me that since these are the people who know how to game the system, these are the perfect choices to fix it. Really??? By that fuzzy logic, we should appoint a convicted bank robber, or even a Bernie Madoff type to be Secretary of the Treasury.

Of course, in between and during all this, Trump declared war on his own intelligence agencies and the mainstream media. I can see Trumps issues with his intelligence agencies as he has said on numerous occasions that he is smarter than the Generals and he has a very smart brain, and he alone knows how to defeat ISIS.

As for the war on the mainstream media, Trump attacks virtually every single news organisation that says anything that’s even remotely critical, or calls him out on his blatant falsehoods and lies that he spews out of his mouth every single day. Is this a rational human being? or is this someone who has become a victim of the body snatchers and is following their own alien agenda?

Did the Trump supporters care? Of course not! I mean Fuck the media and intelligence right?

Let’s not forget the tangled web of Russian connections. Mike Flynn the National Intelligence Advisor was even forced to step down because of them. Trump’s son-in-law and Flynn actually met with the Russian Ambassador at Trump tower, and yet Trump knows nothing about it. Most of Trumps high-level advisors during the campaign during the time that out intelligence agencies said that the Russians were actively interfering with our election met with high-level Russian officials both here and abroad.

Of course, Trump claims that he knows virtually nothing about it, and he did not authorize any communications with the Russians. Did this cause any Trump supporters any concern? Of course not.After all, it’s all fake news right?

Trump signed an executive action banning Muslims that caused chaos in airports worldwide. This was ultimately blocked by the courts as unconstitutional.  So what did Trump do, he just signed another one. Trump claims that this is not a discriminatory religious ban on Muslims. However, the courts used his own words and the statements of his advisors and cabinet officials that it actually was.

Trump is being schooled on the U.S. Constitution and basic civics by the courts. were Trump’s supporters concerned about this blatant attack on out constitution? Of course not! As a matter of fact, they enthusiastically supported it. Thank God for the ACLU and many others who fought for our civil rights as well as those of others.

In the middle of this like a long-buried WWII bomb suddenly expolding, Early on a Saturday morning, Trump tweeted that former President Obama had ordered Trump tower to be wire-tapped. He was not clear if Obama dressed in all black, crept around Trump tower and did it personally, or ordered it done by one of our intelligence agencies. Either way, these allegations exploded across the media like the bombshell that it was.

Trump offered no proof or evidence for these outrageous claims. If true this would be a far, far, bigger scandal that watergate. Accusing a former president of a serious felony with no proof or evidence is outrageous. Virtually every official involved in intellegence from the FBI Director, to Obama’s National Intellegence Director, to congress says emphatically that there is no evidence to support these claims. Did Trump back down or apologise? Nope.

Once this nonsense started blowing up in his face, he changed his tune and said that Obama actually asked the British Intelligence Agency GCHQ to wiretap Trump tower for him. What??? What the fuck is he talking about?

Maybe it went down something like this:

Ring, Ring, Ring…
GCHQ, Simon speaking,
Obama: Simon, it’s Barack I need a favor.
GCHQ; Anything for you old chap, what do you need?
Obama: I need you to wiretap that sleze Donald Trump and Trump Tower in Ney York City.
GCHQ: No problem. I assume this is on the QT?
Obama: You got it.Send me reports on my personal cell.
GCHQ: No problem old chap we will get back to you soon.
Obama: Thanks, Simon I owe you one.


When trump was asked about this, he responded,

“We said nothing,” he told the reporter. “All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn’t make an opinion on it. That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox. So you shouldn’t be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox.”


Evidently, the CIA, NSA, DIA, FBI, State Department, etc. are not as reliable as far as he’s concerned.

Were Trump supporters concerned? Of course not.


I would be extremely remiss if I didn’t mention Trump’s Counceller, Kellyann Conway and Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer. First up, Kellyann Conway. She is the lunatic who coined the term; “alternative facts”  evidently it’s not lying if you call them alternative facts. Kellyann Conway used so many alternative facts that virtually every single mainstream news media refused to have her on their programs. I am fairly certain that she is one of the pod people, as her view on reality is certainly other-worldly. The funny thing is when I was a child, my parents would wash my mouth out with soap for lying. Too bad, I

The funny thing is when I was a child, my parents would wash my mouth out with soap for lying. Too bad, I didn’t know about alternative facts then. I may have gotten away with it.

Sean Spicer, the Whitehouse press Secretary is another winner. He comes out in front of a big crowd of journalists almost every day and spews lies and falsehoods. Spicer actually has the ability to say this with a perfectly straight face. No human being has the ability to do this day in and day out and never crack.

Spicer without his human looking artificial skin

There is only one plausible explanation for this. Sean Spicer is a humanoid robot. As a matter of fact have you ever noticed that Sean Spicer is never seen without the podium in front of him?  Think about that for a moment. I believe that the podium holds the power supplies, micro-processors and wires and cables that control this animatronic.

If you listen to his rants carefully it doesn’t take long to realise that he is nothing more than a computer program. Anytime he is presented with facts or reality, he pauses for a moment as his computer brain has just been presented with a; “bad command or file name that doe’s not compute” a moment later he defaults to one of his pre-programmed responses in an attempt to spin an entirely different reality.

Doe’s this concern Trump supporters? Nope. They buy into it hook, line, and sinker.

Can you believe it, all this happened during Trump’s first 60 days in office.

And then in rapid succession, Trump introduced the Ryan/Trump healthcare plan to replace Obamacare and his budget proposal for the next fiscal year. All of a sudden reality, remember reality? came crashing back in with a vengeance.

Sure Trump supporters thought is was all fun and games until somebody got hurt. They suddenly realised that the people getting hurt were Trump supporters themselves. Suddenly, trump had turned on those who supported them. All the red meat that Trump had been feeding his supporters turned out to be rotten and poisoned.

Trump Supporters

Trump played all his supporters who do not suffer from the ravages of intelligence and basically threw all of them under the bus. All of a sudden Trump supporters do care, but now it’s too late. They have all come to the sudden realisation that you have to be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. Well, they got it. We tried to warn the poor incompetent fools, but they didn’t listen.

The Ryan/Trump healthcare plan will throw 17-24 million people out of affordable healthcare, and drastically raise the cost of healthcare insurance premiums. The plan also eliminates the Medicaid expansion which will mostly affect the States and the very people who voted for him.  Are Trump supporters concerned about this? All of a sudden, they do now.

Trump’s new budget proposal would dramatically slash funding for critical social programs that Trump supporters rely on.

Eliminating the funding for Meals-on-Wheels which is 1/3 of their budget. Meals-on-Wheels feeds one healthy meal per day to low-income seniors, veterans and the disabled. According to Trumps plan, fuck the seniors and disabled, they have been a big enough drain on the rest of us already.

His budget would dramatically cut back on school lunches for the poor,  assistance to pay heating bills for the poor, eliminate funding for PBS and NPR, cut funds for jb training and so much more.

Per New York Magazine, “The president’s budget cuts funding for early-childhood education, public housing, transit, food assistance, and job training — all programs that disproportionately benefit single mothers in cities with low median incomes. And it also abolishes the Appalachian Regional Commission and Rural Business-Cooperative Service, while shrinking the Labor Department — all moves that disadvantage coal miners”. Wow! Trump supporters are definately fucked now.

Here’s a sincere message to all you Trump supporters, even though you drank the kool-aid and were all duped by a con-man, all of us 2.88 million more who did not vote for this minority elected President are working hard to undo the damage you have done. The Resistance, as we are called welcome you to the good fight, and together we can reverse this abomination that you have caused.

Together, we can and will remove the invasion of the body snatchers and restore truth and justice back to our democracy. We will not allow lying to become the new normal, nor will we allow the elderly, poor and disabled to suffer the brunt of Trump’s dark dystopian vision of America.

Regretful Trump Supporter

Gil Scott-Heron once sang about how; “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” Well this time around it is. We of the Resistance are not only fighting for ourselves, but for all those who were duped by Trump the con-man, and everyone else. Denounce Trump and join us.  Together we can make a better world for both me and you.

I am going to leave you with this final thought…



As Always,

I Am…..
