    Anyone watching "Chernobyl" on HBO and listening to the podcast? It's great, but it's so hard not to see certain parallels to what's happening in our country right now. There's the spread of disinformation and lies, the dismissal of scientists and experts ("I prefer my opinion to yours," a bureaucrat says to a nuclear physicist), the idea that nothing has gone wrong yet no one can know what's happened (sound familiar, Mueller Report?), and, finally, the flunkies who are put in charge of things they have no business running.

    The director said this project began before 2016, but even he sees how it can be an allegory to Trumpism and what the GOP is doing here. The irony, of course, is that it's usually the Dems and the left who are accused of being Communist and Socialist and equating their ideas to what the Soviets were doing back then.

    Anyway, the miniseries is great, and the podcast is really interesting. I was 14 years old when Chernobyl happened. I remember it being a thing, a bad thing, but I knew very little about how horrible the situation one — both the actual accident and the way the Soviets handled it afterwards.

    “And now, it’s time for the Trump FM traffic report! Sean?”

    “Thanks Rush. We’ve got all sorts of problems out there thanks to those Libruhl Democrats. Ivanka Trump Boulevard is bumper to bumper like a girl sitting on her Dad’s lap. Lindsey Graham Street has all sorts of construction because of Infrastructure Week. Multiple streets are closed near Trump University for security because of commencement exercises featuring guest speaker Kanye West. But on the bright side, traffic is smooth near the Meadowlands since the New Jersey Generals went out of business. This traffic report is brought to you by Jim Bakker Ministries. Call 1-TRUMP-IS-GOD and, for a low cost of $45, you can buy a commemorative coin to pray that Donald Trump blesses America. And if you call
    in the next five minutes. we’ll kick in a Lee Greenwood Eight-Track and an autographed basketball by the Baylor women’s basketball team. Back to you, Rush!

    I for one appreciate your craftsmanship.
    You ought to start a parody Twitter account and bring this outside of SJ.com.
    It's exactly how my moron cousin attempts to write in her scattershot thoughts.
