Dumb and Dumber America

A couple of Democrats waiting outside the Lincoln Tunnel.
Here is what I wonder: If they consume enough cheese-stuffed-crust pizza and deep-fried Oreos and bacon cheeseburgers and Starbucks Caramel Waffle Cone Creme Frappucinos, will the American citizens get any dumber or will there just be an increase in heart attacks, strokes and fat people?

Yesterday afternoon, Donald Trump drove in a motorcade from Manhattan to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey where he is conducting meetings with potential cabinet members for his administration. This caused the closure of the Lincoln Tunnel for a brief period. You would think people would understand that this sort of thing happens, but then I lived in Washington, D.C. for 30 years and so became accustomed to my life being interrupted by politicians "doing their thing." Like the time my husband and I missed the opening curtain at the Kennedy Center when we turned into a residential street and found the traffic dead stopped. As one of the cops told us when we finally got moving twenty minutes later, Hillary Clinton, then a mere Senator, was inside her car fixing her hair and makeup before going into a nearby fundraising event while all us little people sat there, unable to pass by because of security concerns.

But back to Donald: The Internet is foaming at the mouth and all atwitter, literally, that Trump was going there to play golf! Hundreds of these fools repeated the misinformation, each comment more outraged than the one preceding it. "Imagine, he's out golfing and we all have to sit in traffic!" The fact that anyone at all would think that anyone at all who was just elected president would be playing golf with only 62 days until his Inauguration Day is obviously pathetically stupid. Just sayin'.
