Well, my post for today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill is not exactly a stream of consciousness post. But when I saw that Linda wanted us to use the word “deep,” all I could think of is how, thanks to Donald Trump and all of his Republican enablers, our American democracy is in deep doo doo.
Then I had a little déjà vu experience and realized that I’d written a post back on August 1, 2018 titled “Deep Doo Doo.” So, I decided that I would just go ahead and repost that and hope that by doing so I’m not going to put myself on Linda’s shit list (i.e., in deep doo doo) for reposting a non-stream of consciousness post for today’s SoCS response.
So here’s that post from August 2018.
“Oh my God,” Jeff exclaimed. “Are you really that gullible?”
“What are you talking about?” Josh asked. I’m not at all gullible.”
“The man is spewing out a monsoon of lies, for crissake,” Jeff said. “He’s told more lies than any president in the history of the United States and you’re buying it all hook, line, and sinker.”
“Look at the facts, dude,” Josh countered. “Since his election our country is going through a renewal. The economy is booming, North Korea is disarming, we’re normalizing relations with Russia, jobs are coming back to America, our borders are being protected, our taxes have gone down. He truly is making America great again.”
“Facts?” Jeff said. “He’s made more than four thousand false or misleading statements since he became president. That’s an average of eight lies a day, Josh.”
Josh shook his head. “You’re being duped by the fake news, dude,” he said. “Don’t you know by now that the reporters for the mainstream media are the enemy of the American people?”
Now it was time for Jeff to shake his head. “We are in deep doo doo.”
