I’m writing this to try to find an answer to the mess we are in today. The fact is, Russian bots, trolls and right-wing “twitter twits” are waging a giant war on the truth and sanity.
I’ve had many people ask me, “Why can’t we put out phony Facebook ads? Why can’t we send out fake tweets?” And it’s a good question. The answer is, of course, we can. But the real question is what kind of fake tweets or fake Facebook ads do we create?
If a computer needed to be shut down, Spock would either pull the plug or get it to do something that would drive it crazy, like computing the value of PI. If the warp core was about to explode, Scotty would fix it. Even though he would complain that he needed more time and he needed more power.
I don’t think anybody wants to kiss Trump, even though I know a whole lot of folks would love to punch him in the face.
We have to come up with a story that Fox News, the Russian Trolls and all the other right-wing nut-balls will grab onto and re-post like crazy.
And I think I have it.
“A recent bombshell report has come to light revealing a secretly recorded conversation between Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama. In it, Obama reveals that he now totally agrees with everything that President Trump has done in the last year. He is reported to have said quote “I hate to admit it, but I was wrong. If I could do it all over again, I’d do everything that Trump did in 2017. Exactly the way he did it. Everything he did was genius. And very stable.” Hillary is reported to have replied “Yeah, I agree, and he’s like a really smart person too.”
Now here’s what will happen. Fox News and all the other trolls will jump on this like a cat in a catnip factory. Sean Hannity will literally have an orgasm on live TV.
It will be everywhere. They were right! Trump is vindicated!!
But, how will SCROTUS react? Will he be pleased? Will he be happy? Hell no. His whole presidency, his whole mission in life has been about destroying Obama. It’s been about destroying everything he did. If Obama liked it, he hates it. If Obama did it, he undoes it. So how does he react? Just like this.
TRUMP: Obama would do everything I did.
TRUMP: But everything Obama did is wrong.
TRUMP: I must undo everything Obama does.
TRUMP: I must undo everything I’ve done. Everything I’ve done is wrong.
TRUMP: But everything I do is right.
TRUMP: But if Obama likes it, it must be wrong.
TRUMP: But that can’t be. Everything I do is great. Everything I do is the greatest.
TRUMP: But everything I’ve done must be wrong. But … I can’t be wrong.
This is about the time steam comes out of his ears and the dull light in his eyes blink out and he falls off his gold toilet in a catatonic state.
So, there it is. Let’s get started. Post this on Facebook! Tweet it! Re-tweet!
As Spock would say. It’s highly illogical, but it could work.
I wasn’t sure about the title of this one. It could also be THE SANE STRIKE BACK, or A NEW HOPE FOR SANITY. All of them fit.
The truth is, in an insane world, the sane have to get a little crazy.
