Located at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C., is a now scary edifice that makes any Transylvania castle look normal. Consider the folks who haunt its halls:
Kellyanne Conway, the Wicked Witch of the West Wing, ready to sink her fangs into anyone who dares speak the truth about her boss.
Then there’s Stephen Miller, straight out of Addams Family casting, always scowling with never a positive or truthful utterance from his oral orifice while in the Oval Office. Don’t forget Sarah Huckabee Smith parroting the fake news of her boss. No room for the rest. Very bad.
There are also lingering ghosts of former residents: Steve Bannon, Roger Stone, Carter Page, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Sean Spicer as examples.
All of these scary folks and their ugly attitudes and activities are the creations of that Great Orange Pumpkin, Donald Trump. He who regularly issues tweets that demean anyone and everything except Nazis, Putin and Russia. Trump, who golfs two to three times a week paid for by our taxes, sometimes even during times of extreme crisis for millions of Americans. Very sad.
Did I mention that the White House is spending $1 million per month on lawyers?
The scariest part is that Trump, a Legend in His Own Mind, controls our nuclear codes. If, for some reason he loses what little viable reasoning ability he might have, we all could become innocent victims of his angry, contemptuous, capricious nature. And that’s not fake news. Happy Halloween.
