Episode 12: Maduro Outlasting Trump Like Assad Outlasted Obama (”Black-Swan” Song for Trump)

December 5, 2020

No person on this planet gets under Donald Trump’s skin quite like Barack Obama. This is why nothing would drive him crazier than being trolled for showing the same kind of fecklessness he trolled Obama for showing. But this was undeniably the case with their bungled attempts to get rid of President Maduro in Venezuela and President Assad in Syria, respectively.

Also, given that Trump is now a certified lame duck, this talk includes a swan song on his dystopian presidency. But I hope you’ll forgive my diogenesian tone. After all, I duly scoffed at the very notion of anyone voting for him in “Trump for President? Don’t Be a Sucker! April 8, 2011, and when the unthinkable happened, I sounded the alarm in “WTF: President-elect Donald J. Trump?! America. What. Have. You. Done?” November 9, 2016.
