I don’t know about you but there’s nothing like watching the spectacle of a complete Leftist melt-down on TV to really lift your spirits in the morning. Some do yoga, put on music, watch the sunrise, or listen to the dawn chorus. But for the more discerning, such as yours truly, rather than listening to Bach or the kookaburras, switching on CNN first thing and watching those idiots going completely berserk in the morning is far more rewarding.
You can’t beat it. Short of vomit-inducing presenters like Amanpour and Anderson Cooper finally ridding themselves of their Trump Derangement Syndrome by (I highly-recommend) throwing themselves off the nearest roof live, on prime-time TV, that is. Or if they had any real convictions, following in the footsteps of the Saigon monks in 1963, and Bouazizi in Tunisia in 2010, opt for self-immolation.
That would really raise virtue-signalling to new heights and we on the right of politics would have no choice but to stand up and wildly applaud. Particularly if some of their fellow presenters here on SBS and ABC went ahead and followed suit.
But, even without Trump occasionally uttering something completely stupid, as he did in Helsinki yesterday, there are always going to be melt-downs and leftists frothings at the mouth like demented camels to look forward to watching every morning. This deranged, Democrat circus has a lot of life in it yet.
The main beneficiaries, of course, to their antics will be those who, like me, continue to get a kick out of them, and Russia itself. The latter – and its leader – being all that more quite rightly admired not just in spite of it all, but because of it.
