SNAFU and FUBAR
These two splendid WW2 acronyms translate as
Situation Normal – All F****d Up!
F*****d Up Beyond All Recognition!
Seems like a fairly accurate description of the Trump administration right now?
Throw into the mix “The Mooch”, as Antonio Scaramucci * is known, and you are getting close to a combo of Goodfellas and The Sopranos
The Mooch recently described ex Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, as a “f******g paranoid schizophrenic” and then threatened to “kill all the f******g leakers” in the White House!
It wasn’t long till Press Sec Spicer went to ground before being taken out in a hail of twitter bullets and it looks like the next guy slated for a concrete overcoat is AG Jeff Sessions.
To add to the White House cult of gang warfare Steve Bannon has issued “warnings” that Facebook and Google should be regulated as public utilities (despite their not being owned by the State!).
Orchestrating all this is the Godfather re-incarnate, aka The Don-ald (funny coincidence this...).
It was a lie but he believed in telling lies to people . Truth telling and medicine just didn’t go together except in dire emergencies.
Behind every successful fortune there is a crime
(Mario Puzi – The Godfather)
Somehow it feels like fiction and reality have become conflated. So will a hitman take The Donald himself down perhaps??
Given the propensity for political assassinations in the US it is far from improbable in this bizarre landscape where SNAFU and FUBAR are the order of the day.
