Trump’s Press Secretary Is A Stalinist Or Something

Usually, people in the Media Industrial Complex (MIC) go with fascist or some sort of Nazi/Hitler reference. This is a new one by Excitable Richard Cohen at the Washington Post

Sean Spicer’s Stalinist apparition

Sean Spicer is the appropriate face of the new Trump administration. He is the White House press secretary, the spokesman and all of that, and he came into the briefing room on Saturday wearing the blank expression of Laurence Harvey after turning over the queen of diamonds in “The Manchurian Candidate.” You’ve heard of a molotov cocktail. Spicer was wearing a molotov face.

Vyacheslav Molotov was Joseph Stalin’s foreign minister. He was so scared of Stalin that when the Soviet dictator ordered Molotov’s wife exiled to Siberia and called for a vote by the leadership on the issue, Molotov abstained. In his dealing with foreign governments, Molotov never strayed from Stalin’s line, no matter how unreasonable. When confronted with facts, logic or the truth, he might break into a sweat. Usually, though, he just looked like Spicer. (snip)

Trump is a human dust devil, spinning off analogies and references. He is Orwellian, Kafkaesque and always chillingly demagogic. He vilifies the press as Hitler and others once vilified Jews — mysterious, powerful, deceitful, unpatriotic. He looks to his schoolboy past for an American future — a tall country in a world otherwise flattened by World War II — and he blames the relative decline not on automation or the inevitable rise of China, but on the indifference and selfishness of the establishment. Like a sleepy child in a creaking house, he imagines boogeymen everywhere.

Whoops, there’s the Hitler reference!

Finally, we have the Stalinist apparition of Sean Spicer, running through his several paragraphs of deceit Saturday like a hostage fearing for his life — or Molotov remembering that his wife, whom he adored, was in Stalin’s gulag. What does a press secretary have but his own credibility? Richard Nixon over time shredded Ronald Ziegler of his, but Nixon’s lies were for a time unprovable. Not so Trump’s. He stood before the wall of the fallen and said his differences with the CIA were concocted by the media. He lied about that, then lied about the turnout for his inaugural address, and then shoved Spicer out into the briefing room to lie about the lies. Trump wants to destroy his enemies. First, though, he’ll destroy his friends.

Good grief. Will the MIC folks be able to keep their apoplexy going strong for the next 4 years? Will they ever realize that Trump beat them like a rented mule, and that their credibility is gone? And that Trump is not your standard Republican, and will not be cowed by the MIC like most elected Republican officials? That he will fight back on a constant basis? Probably not.

    Im not sure what he is but he is a fucking Idiot.

    Even I think its totally retarded to defend some of these stupid things the POTUS keeps saying that cant be substantiated…..

    such as 3 million illegal votes…how do you prove that…..and if its totally not provable then why defend it….just say to the press prove us wrong and we will stand corrected and MOVE ON…….

    Spicer is making himself look like a moron defending some of this stuff as if hes having a debate on HUFFPO instead of in the Press Room of the White House.

  2. Liam Thomas says:

    Let me add that I believe that there is some truth in what trump claims….there are many illegals voting…..

    but you cant prove that…..if its not provable then the press is going to have a field day with it……

    Grow a pair and move on…..You WON the ELECTORAL COLLEGE….you clearly lost the popular vote……..so what?

    If you do what you say…..in 2020 you will have a Reaganesque landslide…..if you dont do what you say in 2020….there will be 15 million illegals voting against you……Simple as that…..

    LET YOUR ACTIONS DO YOUR TALKING>….and you will win…over and over and over again…and it will make the MSM and the LEFT look like the whiney little marxists they really are.

    Is trump admitting that he “won” the election using illegal voters???

    A few thousand each in WI, MI, NC, PA, OH, FL shifted the election?

  4. drowningpuppies says:

    Son, you still have that pussy on your head.

  5. AndyG55 says:

    Still the ANTI-CONSTITUTION, ANTI-AMERICA slagging, hey Jeffles.

    Pack up your bags and piss off to North Korea if you don’t like the constitution. !!

    TRUMP won the ELECTION for POTUS.

    GET OVER IT !!!

    I doubt that anyone has seen such childish petulance as Jeffles is constantly bleating with.

  6. AndyG55 says:

    And guess what.. The people who voted for TRUMP as POTUS, absolutely love what he is doing with the place, as will most rational Americans over time.

    He keeps going like this , he is a shoe-in for EIGHT years as POTUS

  7. Jeffery says:

    Did trump just admit that he won several states with illegal voters??

  8. Jeffery says:

    trump claimed, and he forced his flackster to claim, that there were 3 to 5 million illegal votes!!

    This is a stunning admission.

    By his own admission trump is an illegitimate president

  9. Liam Thomas says:

    States with the highest population of unauthorized migrants, from one to five, are: California, Texas, New York, Florida and Illinois, according to the Migration Policy Institute. Some 58 percent of all unauthorized U.S. migrants live in the top five states, said Jeanne Batalova, senior policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute.

    And point of fact is that this same report says that 70 percent of these are Hispanic and the vote for trump breaks down: citing a separate survey of Latino voters by the polling firm Latino Decisions that reported that 18 percent of Hispanics voted for Trump.

    A lot of non-Latino newcomers have begun to change the political complexion of the state(TEXAS) in recent years, and that formula — newcomers plus Latinos — is what flipped Colorado and Nevada in the past.

    Florida is the one place where Latinos might have been able to change the results of this election and didn’t. In the exit polls, Latinos accounted for 18 percent of the total vote compared with 17 in 2012, and the split was slightly more favorable to Mrs. Clinton than it was for President Obama four years ago. Mrs. Clinton’s vote tally was more than 200,000 higher than President Obama’s, but Mr. Trump’s was more than 400,000 higher than Mr. Romney’s.

    So the point is simple Jeffery the voting where this illegal activity occurred was in several states that all WENT FOR HRC NOT TRUMP and in those top 5 states……two….FL and TX…the hispanic vote was not what changed the outcome for HRC or Trump….In fact it was the millions of more white voters turning out and not illegals in those two primary states where most of the illegals reside……

    But thanks for playing.
