Which was the most important news story on Tuesday this week? And which news story was overshadowed by corporate media coverage of the other 3?
- Donald Trump was officially nominated and elected as the Republican candidate for president, despite attempts to derail that surreal event.
- Donald Trump’s wife plagiarized Michelle Obama in her speech.
- There was something going on between Taylor Swift, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. I still don’t know what. And no, I won’t seek a link for this. Please.
- And the soon to be big[ger] story that Mrs. Trump Rickrolled the Republican convention and the country.
The answer to both questions, obviously[?], is #1.
But the media pointed out some squirrels with which to distract us from the torturous reality that a major American political party is in such a state of delusion that Mr. Trump is their gift to the White House.
This is something we should all be debating and planning to avert! But we can’t if the Kanye/Kim/Taylor/Melania show is on.
So. Did you catch it? Or did corporate media get you again on Tuesday? If you caught it, you are allowed to like us in the Facebook.
Spoiler: yesterday we learned that Trump thinks the president’s job is to Make America Great Again while letting his vice-president take care of domestic and international policy. It’s now the Texas Bush-Cheney Chainsaw Massacre, Part Deux!
Oh. And here’s your Easter Egg.
