Were we to emulate Pollyanna, it might be possible to pretend that the state of DC is OK. Alas, it actually takes a Doubting Thomas state of mind to, correctly, call into question any member of the trumpeting, marching in lockstep conservative band. Hell, for all we know, this bloc of blockhead righties may’ve even sold their souls to the devil (and that would not, necessarily, be referring to Satan).
Members of the White House Press Corps do know, first hand, just how tough it is to cover a regime that’s tragically, typically and toxically Anti-First Amendment. How toxic? Well, let’s just say that had the fake prez been present, he would’ve been cheering on, egging on and getting off on being an eyewitness to the thugs who were sadistically, (literally) hacking journalist Jamal Khashoggi to death.
Indeed, only a dare devil journalist would risk getting a Sharpie™ squiggled in strategic, final “e” added to her/his Press Corps title… i.e., retribution for asking whomever is standing behind the White House’s Press Briefing Room dais, this Key Question:
“How much did you get for your soul?”
Which, btw, is Pretender Chrissie Hynde’s lyrical hook to and title of our Vid of the Day’s featured song.
Her composition could easily become any left leaning, political parodist’s dream come true, too.
Yet, even AS IS the Pretenders are not pretending when they turn in a live performance that’s totally enjoyable.
