Is This Becoming the New Normal?

Has it really been just a year since Donald Trump announced he was running for the presidency? It seems way longer for some (unknown) reason. You can make a 23 panel comic just by quoting Trump’s greatest hits from the last year. And as Tom Tomorrow put it “Obviously I’m only scratching the surface, though — sad!”

And the lies just keep on coming. After an embarrassingly bad month of fundraising, Trump’s campaign just announced that a single campaign email blast raised $3.3 million. That’s more than he just raised in a whole month, which is frankly impossible. Plus we remember when he claimed that he raised $6 million for veterans, then had to repeatedly lower that number after the media questioned it.

    I’m realizing another threat from the Donald: desensitizing the English language.

    I really think that we are going to get so used to hearing him spout false superlatives that we’re going to need a whole new class of words to actually describe something that is healthier than healthy or lesser than least.

    These words, I think it goes without saying, would have to be better than the best words.

    I like it! What will Trump do when he has used up all the “best” words?

    And don’t expect Trump to change. He refuses to pivot. See

    When basically asked if he was going to keep doing the stupid things that have made him plummet in the polls, Trump replied “I do what I do. I’ve listened to this for a long time — at the beginning of the primaries, ‘He should do this, he should do that.’ I won in a landslide!”

    I think Trump believes his own BS.

    So maybe we should just streamline the language. So if something is better than “the best”, then we can call it “double good” and if it’s even better than that then maybe adding another layer, like a plus. Double plus good.

    Or we can just introduce new words, like “bester” and “bestest”. After all, Donald Trump already talks like a third grader,
