It is time to institute a new holiday into our already heavily-laden days-off agenda. (our brethren government employees always want more excuses for days off !)
With the sudden stress that has seized the nerves of our entire nation due to the radical changes in politics these last two years we need a cooling off period, much like what is going on with the Fukishima nuclear reactor that was totaled by a tidal wave on the Japanese coast a while back. We need a time out, a recess, a nappy time just like Miss Julie used to give us in kindergarten when she herself needed a break from us kids rather than herself having a breakdown.
Much of the cause of this stress for many U.S. citizens (and a lot of people in the rest of the world as well!) is our Commandant-in-Chief (I won't mention his name again in this paragraph as the mere saying of it causes many people's blood pressure to spike. He shall remain a lot like Vordemort in the Harry Potter movie - “He Who Shall Not Be Named" - for much the same reasons) and the various antics he has become famous for. Or infamous, depending on which side of the aisle you happen to have chosen to plant your tush onto. Think of how much of a relief it would be for a day not to see his stone-faced visage on our screens, hear his over-aged punk rock voice, or have to read his semi-demented rants.
We need a Trump-free day!
A day free from Twitter feeds!
A day without Obama derision!
A day without phony patriotic vitriol!
A day without political chain-combustion fusion!
A day free from firing underlings!
A day free from ravaging, raging, rabies-riddled rants!
A day free from POTUS posturing!
A day free from the Big Tweet himself!
In other words - a Trump-Free Day!!!
We really need a vacation, much like the President-select takes every weekend (The same type that The Donald accused Obama of taking too many of, although Don is actually taking more of them.) . All the major media magnates are merely magnified megaphones for his maniacal mealy mouthed mutterings and his mentally-meandering memos, mottos and mentionings. It is time we limit the lassitude of his outlandish lacerating lashing-outs at liberals, ladies, lackeys and the like, and lock down this literal Liberace of the media. He is like the gluttonous ghost of the original Ghostbusters who gorged his greedy gut at every good Government grouping. We need to abate his feeding frenzy.
Let's shut him down for a day. We can get the Secret Service to 'accidentally' lock him in the basement in the morning without his smart phone and then 'remember' to let him out early the next day. I am sure the SS would go for that. They surely need a break from The Donald themselves.
Let us work to make April 1st the official Trump-Free Day. Let's make it a day of no fooling around! Especially by The Great Fool himself!
