article imageOp-Ed: Week one — Trump gets down to big league business

By Digital Journal Staff     Jan 27, 2017 in Politics
Once again, our tremendous political correspondents wade into the swamp of intrigue surrounding Washington to offer their hard-nosed softball opinions.
It has been quite a week in Trumpland. Understanding their new abusive relationship with the White House has been a doozy for the press. A lot of commentary from Breitboy Steve Bannon and Kellaisez-faire Conway has thrown disdain on the media, and it’s safe to say things have been getting bitter. However, at today’s press briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters to look under their seats. They were happy to find fresh copies of George Orwell’s 1984 — a delightful surprise, seeing as Amazon sold out of the dystopian novel earlier this week. It’s good to know such a practical how-to guide on alternative facts is now in the hands of the people who need it most.
Trump announced his pro-torture stance dramatically this week, leaving many experts confused. Though maybe people shouldn’t be too shocked about Trump’s position after watching the gruelling, torturous interview that ABC journalist David Muir was subjected to by the President. And at least Sean Hannity can finally get past the Liberals holding him back and be waterboarded for charity.
Another huge news story was Trump’s announcement of a big league tax break for red-blooded Americans that want to build their own wall. In order to get people in the patriotic, masonry-inspired spirit, Trump is issuing a tax break for any families wishing to purchase wall-building tools and supplies over the next fiscal year. Whether those tools will be made in America or come from other countries has yet to be seen. The initiative will also help develop the skills needed by Americans to help construct the new border wall when the usual source of labor has been disappeared by the White House.
And finally, slacktivism got a big boost this week as Park Rangers at rogue national parks began tweeting riotously about science. Rebellious twitter accounts began popping up like increasing numbers of hurricanes. Did no one tell these people about Twitter’s new mute button? In all seriousness, if you see one of these rogue park rangers, be brave — they’ll only start describing climate change and the cost-effectiveness of compostable toilets to you in an educational tone. Back away slowly and don’t look them straight in the eye.
