Linda G. Hill has given us the word “digest” for her Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt, which I think is quite appropriate for those of us in the U.S. who celebrated Thanksgiving this past Thursday by ingesting more turkey, stuffing, sweet potato soufflé, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie à la mode than our bodies can possibly digest.
And speaking about turkey and digestion, I’m really having a problem trying to digest how Donald Trump is putting Saudi Arabia — not America — first. He’s claiming that the CIA did not conclude that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (aka, MBS) ordered the murder of U.S. resident and Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. This despite the fact that American intelligence agencies have, in fact, concluded that the Crown Prince ordered the killing in the Saudi Consulate in Turkey.
I mean anyone with half a brain would know that MBS was behind the brutal murder. So clearly Trump doesn’t have half a brain.
This is just another Trump self-serving lie. Depending upon who’s doing the counting, Trump has told between 4,000 and 7,000 lies or misleading statements since he’s been President of the United States. And the rate of his lying is accelerating. How is it that even his most diehard supporters, much less members of Congress, can believe anything he ever says? Anything. Ever.
And yet he is still the President.
How can that be?
I just can’t digest that.
