[yt_dropcap type=”square” font=”” size=”14″ color=”#000″ background=”#fff” ] T [/yt_dropcap]o watch Sean Spicer at his daily media briefing and his lame defense of Trump’s latest tweets, is to watch an exercise in self-parody that can only be matched by satire. It’s like watching Inspector Clouseau investigating himself. It would be funny were it only a reality show, but it is tragic when it portents the destruction of a whole polity.
We now witness daily an attempt to clarify what, more often than not, ends up more unclear and muddled. Take Trump’s evidence-free allegation that, prior to his election, his phone in the Trump Tower was wiretapped by former president Barack Obama. Spicer simply explained it away by claiming that the word “wiretapping” in Trump’s tweet broadly meant surveillance and other surreptitious activities.
That kind of “clarification” has convinced few, if any, people. Most intelligent people, on both sides of the political spectrum, have arrived at the ineluctable conclusion that this cavalier allegation about a former president is an affront to the entire democratic political system of the country; a system that has been in place for more than two hundred years and has served the country well.
Meanwhile, the Department of Justice which is allegedly looking for the evidence to support the Trump allegation has asked for more time from the Congressional Committees conducting the investigation. It has received an extension till March 20. Kellyanne Conway, on the other hand, goes around explaining away the “surveillance” (it’s no longer the original phone tapping) by referring to microwaves that turn into cameras.”
The question naturally arises: when will these “funny” tragi-comedic characters, claiming to be our guides and leaders, end this abominable charade?
