We are less than a month into the Trump administration, and it is already showing signs of coming apart at the seams. Meanwhile, President Obama is taking some well-deserved time off, or is he?
According to some right-wing nuts, Obama is waging a secret war against Herr Gropenfuhrer, which is the reason why Trump is struggling and stumbling to record low numbers in approval polls. Remember how President Obama was blamed for everything that went wrong under Bush, but magically didn’t deserve any of the credit for all of the things that went right? You know, like the low unemployment rate, record highs for Wall Street, and the narrowing of the federal deficit.
Now Trump wants to take credit for things President Obama did, and some of his ardent supporters like right-wing web blogger David Daubemire are convinced that his failures are because the intelligence community is in cahoots with Obama, or something like that.
Yes, I know it doesn’t make sense, but let’s remember that these folks believed Obama was a secret gay Muslim married to a transgender woman formerly named Michael and was sent here to take our guns and destroy America by Russia or some other place.
Now that we have a president* who is actually tied to Russia and has already lost Michael Flynn for violating the Logan Act, it’s Obama’s fault – because blame the black guy, right?

“Donald Trump, now we know his own CIA, FBI—what do they call those guys? The snoops—they’re not sharing all their information with the president now,” Daubenmire said. “They’re not giving him the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. They’re undermining him at every turn. Why? Well, we have to understand that we’re in a war. We’re at war and to see what President Obama put into place, his desire to destroy America, I think he ought to be arrested.”
“I think he should be arrested,” he continued. “I think this guy has done everything he can to destroy America. I believe he is a traitor. I believe he should be arrested. I wish Trump would do it. I don’t know if he would, but some of us ought to do it. We ought to go get our pitchforks and our torches and go to town and arrest the guy. He’s doing everything he can to undermine us.” (Source)
It’s like we’re living in the Upside Down right now. Remember how we laughed at individuals like David Daubenmire or Alex Jones because we thought they were an insane minority back when we had a president who actually acted like one? Well, it’s not funny anymore.
The idiots and the fanatics have taken over. White nationalists have slithered from underneath their rocks and into places of power. The Fox News comments pale in comparison to Breitbart and Infowars. Cthulhu, take me away.
