Spin City

Watching the latest revelations out of the White House and the spin coming off various politicians and news outlets is ridiculous. Plausible Deniability practiced to the extreme. The constant shirking of responsibility by those who need to be ultimately responsible. It is reprehensible behavior in the pursuit of power.

Of course, I’m writing about the efforts of the president to downplay the significance of the pandemic our country is under. Is it more likely that the president wanted to avoid panic in the streets or that he was afraid the public would shoot the messenger? He has no problem trying to scare suburban women with the thought that black men are gunning for their neighborhood. This is a man who is out for himself and only himself. The ultimate narcissist.
