One Wonders

One truly does:

The Trump White House sends a daily email touting its successes, the President's upcoming schedule, and other items of note. Included in today's edition of "1600 Daily" is a Washington Post article titled, "Trump’s budget makes perfect sense and will fix America, and I will tell you why." The article is satire. The "why" includes observations like Trump's budget will "punch the impoverished in the face."

The article is pretty heavy-handed, in your face satire, and the general consensus is that no one read past the headline before including it in the list.

But, given what's inhabiting this regime, I can't quite shake the feeling that someone did read it and sat there nodding their head and thinking "Finally! Someone gets it!"
