The latest contretemps for Il Douche is his petulant Twitter-response to Meryl Streep's critizue of everything Douche with emphasis on his mockery of a NY Fishwrap reporter, Serge Kovaleski, who suffers from a congenital joint condition. At one of his campaign "rallies in South Carolina, Il Douche was captured in all of humanitarian glory. (Kovaleski had angered Il Douche with questions at a press conference.) Of course, Il Douche denied the attack on Kovaleski in his attack upon Meryl Streep. In a few days, Il Douche will deny that he attacked Meryl Streep. Is there a behavior pattern here? If this is a (fair & balanced) example of politics as usual in 2017, so be it.

Trump Urges Spy Agencies To Lay Off Russia And Focus On Threat Posed By Actresses
By Andy Borowitz
TagCrowd cloud of the following piece of writing
In an emergency meeting at Trump Tower on Monday morning, President-elect Donald J. Trump urged the heads of the nation’s intelligence agencies to “stop picking on Russia” and instead focus on “the very real threat” posed by Hollywood actresses.
Calling the recent allegations against Russia a “witch hunt,” Trump told the intelligence chiefs that their investigations of Russian President Vladimir Putin were distracting them from “America’s real enemy, actresses.”
Growing increasingly irate, he laid out a series of proposals for dealing with what he called a “scourge,” including mandatory registration of actresses and a temporary ban on actresses entering the country.
Additionally, he said that the flow of actresses could be “cut off at the source” by having FBI agents infiltrate improv classes.
“Nothing should be taken off the table,” Trump reportedly said.
The President-elect also complained that, under President Barack Obama, actresses have been allowed to operate with impunity. “Barack Obama is basically the founder of actresses,” he said. ###
