Our Governor weighed in on White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s spectacular public bellyflop yesterday on Fox & Friends this morning:
“Here should be a general rule for anyone involved in public life. Don’t bring up Hitler ever. You can’t win in any conversation about Hitler.” [snip] “He made a mistake, he apologized for it, but the fact of the matter is you never bring up Hitler.”
Tru dat. But – Right off the bat, some issues, none of them are about simply avoiding bringing up Hitler …
(1) Maybe don’t go on Fox News to advise people how not to sound like an anti-Semite. Fox News has its own history promoting people who thought Hitler was just fine ’n dandy and normalizing anti-Semites.
(2) Maybe Governors who didn’t have a fall-back strategy when voters get over his belligerence and incompetence act should be careful advising anybody about anything, particularly how not to sound like a jerk.
(3) Maybe the most unpopular Guv in America – at 20% approval – aren’t the best to advise a White House whose POTUS was only at 34% pre-missiles and only 41.5% post-missiles. And that’s during his “honeymoon.”
(4) If Spicey stays or goes, there’s incompetents in every corner of the White House now, running shit. And some of them are smarter, swifter and far more sincerely Nazi-friendly than little Sean Spicer.
But, seriously President Trump, don’t fire Spicey. A spokesman who doesn’t have any kind of grasp on basic world history is the perfect spokesman for this White House. The fascist talk runs deep there.
