American Politics in the Gutter

If you live in the States (hell, anywhere), you’re all too aware of the train-wreck that is the U.S. White House.

In years past, to be “presidential” meant to be solemn, dignified and refined. Perhaps even elevated and formal. Perform like a statesman and an inspired leader. And as a leader of other refined and formal men and women under you.

The White House today is far from refined and formal.

Here’s a quote from today, from Anthony Scaramucci, Trump’s contentious pick as his Communications Director:

“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,”

This is literally an unsolicited, on-the-record statement, to a reporter, from the official White House Communications Director, regarding the Chief Strategist to the President of the United States of America.

And for Scaramucci, that’s just the tip (of the iceberg). He’s a true vulgarian.

Holy shit guys. I mean, really… how much farther does it need to go before you decide this is the perfect time to get away for a few years.

An American who likes to move around.
I now live on the eastern Canadian seaboard. My job? A stay-at-home dad for two cute but demanding bosses. My wife? Also cute; not so demanding.
My wife and I both love travel. We met in South Korea, travelled across Australia, India, Europe and beyond. We lived in Czech Republic for four years. Many stories to tell and experience to share. If you let me, I will help you travel as we do.
Enjoy.
