95 long, dark nights for America: Olympic Respite

by awindram

Ninety-five long, dark nights to go.

Trump’s Daily Twitter Highlight: “The plane I saw on television was the hostage plane in Geneva, Switzerland, not the plane carrying $400 million in cash going to Iran!”

Clinton’s Daily Twitter Highlight: “At the Paris 1900 games, golfer Margaret Abbott became the first American woman to win an Olympic gold medal.”

Daily election article of interest: Stats on just how tiny Trump’s hand actually are.

I guess we could be discussing Trump’s endorsement of Speaker Ryan today at one of his rallies, and, let’s be clear, the Donald didn’t merely endorse Ryan – this was no begruding fake endorsement – the Donald held up to the crowd his perfectly proportioned hands and gave Ryan two thumbs up – which always boded well when Siskel and Ebert did it.

Instead, let’s reflect on the Olympic Opening Ceremony in Rio, and more specifically Team USA. Sure, Ralph Lauren may have been dressed them all up in the Russian flag, but, perhaps, that’s merely symbolic of the thawing in diplomatic relationships that President Trump and President Putin will bring about. And just think how well the US would do in the Olympic Games once Trump has made America great again? It’s a real struggle at the moment; they’re representing a loser nation. It’s sad. Very sad. But come Tokyo 2020 when we’ll be near the end of Trump’s glorious first term and America is finally proving herself great again (the first time since the era of Jim Crow), well just watch how the US performs at the Olympics. Goodbye to loserdom and a record haul of golds – each as golden as the hairs on Donald’s head. They won’t just won big. They’ll win bigly. China won’t get a look in.
