The other night I had a nightmare and in it Donald Trump became president.
Donald arrives in the White House: “Ok, I got great plans, great plans to make this nation great again. First, we are going to build a Great Wall, a great Wall, and it will be so high that no one could get over it. So, what’s that, the Wall would go through national parks, it would cause hundreds of people to lose their land, so what, I want to build a Great Wall.
OK, now we handle China. Let’s show those chinks that we mean business.So, from now on we raise tariffs on every fucking nation until they allow our exports into their country without paying tariffs. So, the Chinks are going to raise tariffs on our exports and this will cause the loss of thousands of jobs. We have to be tough.
Now, we have to lower taxes on the top one percent. Right, great.So, what is the problem, if we cut taxes our deficit will grow by another three trillion dollars. Bit deal, once we get people working again at great jobs that pay $12 an hour we will have gobs of money to spend.
Oh, fuck it, just nuke Iran. Oh, fuck it, just nuke Syria and end this fiasco!”
