The New American Abby Normal

Remember that great bit in “Young Frankenstein,” when the doctor’s assistant, played by Marty Feldman, robs the brain depository and inadvertently comes back with a brain belonging to someone named “Abby Normal,”  which the good doctor then implants in the monster?  Welcome to Halloween 2018.  American style.

Following DJT, is not covering government.  It is a Trump-defined nonstop Abby Normal reality show on CNN, MSNBC and FOX, starring Donald Trump and his sycophants on one side and those who oppose him and his antics on the other.

We are all being held hostage by Trump’s brain.

Attempting to determine what should be taken seriously, like the apparent murder and dismemberment of a Washington Post journalist on one side with Donald spouting a line of absolute drivel as he tries to excuse the Saudis and his calling for a 5% spending cut at the federal level to help make up for tax cuts to the rich on the other (experts say it won’t happen),  is a daily assault on the senses of any thinking person.

Binge watching Halloween horror movies will be a welcome relief.  They’re currently running Halloween II with Jamie Lee Curtis.  After two years of Trump, the once terrifying theme music is now like a soothing balm.    Elevator music for the 21st Century.
