The 17 ring circus whipped up by political pundits, media and politicians in the US has become the Great Distraction of our time. All the issues that we should be caring about are swept aside by the latest POTUS tweet or liberal outrage du second. Wasn’t there something happening in Syria, South Sudan, Yemen, literally anywhere else in the world? Instead, the message is attack, attack, attack.
Comedians and satirists think they’re being funny or making some profound point. No, they are just sadly participating in the feeding frenzy at the foot of a fiddler while the rest of the world burns down around them. I guess the lessons of kindergarden promoting decency and politeness no longer apply.
