The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Yes, we are being fleeced


August 30, 2018

To The Eagle:

Mike Swift’s recent lament that his hero isn’t receiving good press locally brought tears to my eyes, I was laughing so hard.

It’s about time y’all figured out that our Fibber in Chief doesn’t give a hoot what kind of press he gets from anywhere, as long as any publicity is All About Him, all the time and as often as possible. Don’t you know our Egomaniac in Chief gets goosebumps all over, every time he sees his name in print? This real estate shyster and howling frontman for our latest kleptocratic plutocracy successfully hijacked the oval office and turned it into a commercial launchpad devoted to the power and glory of, you guessed it. Him.

Its my guess that at least some of the more astute folks in Wahkkiakum county who voted for Trump have begun to realize the depth of the deception they fell for. Its understandable. Angry people desperate for change in a system that has raped and pillaged the middle class repeatedly, will vote with their hearts and not their heads, hoping that a deal too good to be true, isn’t.

Scammers depend on that dynamic to fleece their victims. Yes, he was too good to be true. Yes, we are being fleeced.

This is the reason most of the news reported about Trump is bad news, because he is. Nothing fake about that.
