Trump Toady: Kellyanne Conway (2017)
Whereas President Bush offered America the illusion of morality clarity, President Trump offers an ever-shifting phantasmagoria of sense impressions and unreliable information, barely held together by a fog of anxiety and bewilderment. Think Kafka more than Lord of the Rings.

Trump Transition Team 20 Remix (2016)
Former Vice President Joe Biden said “Don’t tell me what you value. Show me your budget and I will tell you what you value.”
...Donald Trump’s budget tells us plenty about what he values—but it tells us even more about what he doesn’t value.
Trump values military hardware. He values a border wall. He doesn’t value people’s lives—feeding people or keeping them warm, doing medical research to prevent and heal diseases, job training or college preparation for disadvantaged youth. He doesn’t value the environment, or parks, or the arts. Trump’s America, the America he is trying to build with this budget, is ignorant, unskilled, sick, hungry, cruel, and violent. It’s bleak and barren and devoid of joy.

Trump Transition Team 5 Remix (2016)
Trump seems to not be interested in fighting real battles or even engaging in genuine politics. It’s all a pageant to him, a fixed narrative, a rigged game in which he’s is supposed to be the big winner in the end, with the cheering and the booing just being all in good fun. But nobody’s having any fun, least of all him. And putting on a show is all he knows how to do.

Saint Stool Pigeon (2017)
We turned down the lights and I had my team bring in some candles so Mike could show me how he speaks in tongues. I had seen this on TV before. He asked for the blood of a stool pigeon to dip his fingers in before we talked about the sanctity of life.
