Info-Meme of the Week: The King and Lies

Editor’s Note: first of all, please allow me to wish you all a happy New Year’s Eve as we collectively leave 2016 behind with extremely little remorse; as regular readers no doubt already know, I myself am up to my ass in packing for an impending move so celebrations on my end are likely going to consist of a couple shots of rum, somewhere near midnight. Unfortunately, this also limits my ability to generate content here on the website and while this problem is going to correct itself by the end of next weekend – for now, all I’ve got time for are some light comedy and multiple info memes.

So, what exactly is an Info Meme? It’s a (normally) weekly feature where we a look at one issue or scandal largely being misreported in the media in the form of a single, easy-to-share meme that’s backed up by a few verifiable sources underneath the photo. In this Info Meme we take a look at President-elect Donald Trump’s curious decision to conduct an impromptu press conference on his front porch with crooked boxing promoter, deranged racist and convicted murderer Don King:

As always, please feel free to share this meme anywhere you’d like and again, if you’re struggling to read all that text; just left click on the meme and pup out the full image. Finally, if you can find it in the goodness of your heart to point people you share with towards this site so they can check out the sources and maybe hit up the donations page; I would be eternally grateful.

Frankly, I honestly cannot tell you what in the holy fuck swine emperor Trump was thinking when he decided to appear with a convicted murderer to talk about veteran’s care and Israel; especially when you realize that Trump was absolutely fucking aware of how bad the optics would be because the GOP had refused to allow King to speak at their National Convention this summer for the exact same reason. Trump (a casino owner) and King (a blood-drinking leech) go way back in the murky world of professional boxing but now that he’s already been elected president; the Donald doesn’t have to prove he likes African Americans anymore and King’s past makes him purely a liability – particularly when he knows almost nothing of the middle east, telecommunications companies or the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Perhaps Trump simply doesn’t care or perhaps this is merely just another symptom of the Donald’s longstanding attempt to associate himself with any time of fame, even infamy, because he believes it plays well with the American public – and frankly, who am I to disagree; these idiots did just make him fucking President b/c they’d seen him on TV after all.
