Nothing to Look at Here

July 20, 2016

Folks, the “plagiarism” thing is all cleared up now. A Trump Organization staffer named Meredith McIver said it was her fault and offered to resign. I refused to accept her resignation because I am super loyal. And because accepting it would have indicated that a bad thing had happened, and it hadn’t. Not accepting the resignation allows us to bash the media for continuing to cover a story that isn’t big enough to justify a resignation. Even though it is.

Why did we allow a Trump staffer rather than an outside speechwriter to do the final draft? Do you know the words “cheap” and “stupid”?

Thank you.
