CNN and MSNBC aren’t doing themselves any favors with running all the narratives regarding Rob Porter, the White House’s propensity to shied racists and abusers, and the faux concern for Hope Hicks. Our moral outrage has made no difference so far, why should it now? Do we suddenly think the White House is going to care? Aren’t there about 10 other stories more important right now? Is the fact that this story is a convergence of our outrage at an immoral administration with the “Me too,” movement that makes it so unavoidable, appealing, and lucrative?
It’s sensationalism and it will be meaningless in a day or two. When the conservatives say, “Liberals are unhinged,” this is what they are talking about. Everyone has the idea that Rob Porter is a dick. We get it. Screaming, gnashing our teeth, and stomping our feet isn’t going to alter or extend our understanding any further. It certainly isn’t going to make the White House give two fucks or change any of their policies.
Why should I care about Hope Hicks’ relationships? I don’t care. I don’t know her. All I know about her is she’s a former model that did some work for Ivanka Trump and a couple years later ended up being the communications director in Trump’s White House. All I know is she’s found herself in a couple relationships with the scumbags in the White House. She’s a big girl, that’s her choice and truth be told, she’s a part of the insanity machine poisoning our country, so I care less than not at all.
The White House doesn’t care what we think; to them this is just a temporary PR issue. John Kelly doesn’t care what we think. Congress has a ton of problems on their hands and they don’t have the time to care.
I’m not saying we shouldn’t voice concern about what is wrong with this administration and society in general. Let’s just go ahead and put this in the endless list of everything that is wrong with this administration. Our nation’s current issues aren’t hinged on a goddamn talk show piece that’s going to be wrapped up by the next commercial break. The stories today about this Amarosa creature are just adding to my frustration at how we are being played by all of the media today when there’s important shit going down.
We’re getting distracted again and again.
We have another shut down looming. Senate goofball and ultimate hypocrite, Rand Paul, is lecturing everyone about their hypocrisy.
Daca has not been solved.
We still are not any closer to securing our 2018 midterm elections against Russian interference.
This Administration is slowly destroying our social fabric.
