Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

The question remains.
Is he crazy? Or crazy like a fox?
The President of the United States claims he’s a victim of McCarthyism?
“Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last,” said attorney Joseph Welch to Senator Joe McCarthy in June of 1954.
A good question for the Donald.
Of course, it has only been two months. Our long national nightmare (or sick joke) is just a few weeks in.
I mentioned yesterday on our radio show, Hitting Left with the Klonsky Brothers, how ironic it was that we had to watch our language per FCC regulations, but that the level of political language has now been so debased that politicians can use words we aren’t allowed to use on the air.
And historical revisionism is in full flower.
Frederick Douglass is alive.
Historically Black Colleges were founded to ensure school choice.
Trump is a victim of McCarthyism.
Let me just say that as someone who comes from a family victimized by actual McCarthyism, it was and never will be the rich and powerful who get to have that honor.
Perhaps it included some Hollywood writers and actors.
Mostly it was working class radicals who were jailed or lost their jobs in the Red Scare of the 50s. Their names are mostly unremembered except by family and friends.
Trump has his wires crossed. Not tapped.
Speaking of wires. Anne made the move yesterday and changed our telephone package.
We still have a land line phone but is can’t be used to make long distance calls, take voice mail and it doesn’t have caller ID.
The phone just sits there. Why do we keep it? Don’t ask.
It cost six dollars a month plus twenty-five in fees and taxes. We can make thirty calls a month, which is thirty more than we did last month.
I’m sure the government is listening to my calls, but unlike the Donald, I know it isn’t over any wires.
