Michael Wolff's Rucksack of Dross

We were so distracted by Michael Wolff's use of the word "fucking" to describe the Plame/CIA leak investigation story that we forgot to try to figure out what he meant by it being a "fucking big story." Like, has he seen the size of Cheney's schlong? Anyway, we asked Fred Becker to explain.


Dear Wonkenutter,

 

I heard that at one of those fancy media lunches yesterday, Michael Wolff was heard to declare that the Valerie Plame outing was “one of the biggest stories of our age.” This is undoubtedly true. I say this because I presume by “our” he means the men’s room sect of idea-free media writers consumed by mogul envy. And by “age” he means the timelines of planet Zog.

Here on earth we’ve had a couple of wars in our age. An election was contested here and the Supreme Court had to decide the outcome. A President was impeached. Oh, and they flew some planes into buildings very near where Mr. Wolff spends frantic time stitching new gallant robes of flowing pedantry.

I understand that Mr. Wolff writes for Vanity Fair—I never get past those dreamy celebrity one-handed reads so I wouldn’t know. But I am very anxious to buy the next issue in the hopes that he might give us some clues about which wardrobe to enter to emerge into the world in which he lives. I have no late summer vacation plans and apparently all that’s necessary to make the trip is a rucksack of dross.

Until my next postcard (from planet Zog!) I remain,

 

Your faithful servant,

 

Fred Becker

Is there ANY good news for the bumblefucking Trump re-election campaign these days? Their polling numbers are in the shitter, therefore Trump is firing the pollsters. Trump's Hitler rally kickoff event in Florida last night was ... whatever it was. Oh, and did we mention that they ain't got no money? Like, of course, not counting whatever Russian money they're not telling us about.

Don Jr. recently called a prominent donor and warned that Trump's money haul is falling behind where Barack Obama was early in his reelection, while Jared Kushner has privately complained to RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel that Trump's war chest is not as big as it should be at this point in the cycle.

Whiiiiiiiiiine. Guess they're gonna have to see if they can launder some rubles somewhere, ALLEGEDLY.

Gabe Sherman has some more bad news about Trump's shithole campaign, and it is that Robert and Rebekah Mercer, the father-daughter billionaire duo who bankrolled much of Trump's "victory" in 2016 -- including funding Breitbart, and also the part of the "victory" that comprised Cambridge Analytica, the data company they owned that may have done some real hinky stuff, possibly with Russia, in order to get Trump "elected" -- have zipped up their checkbooks and decided Trump can go eat dicks for all they care.
