Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think, that a reality TV host got elected leader of the free world? That the corporate media mocked his rants about a rigged system and yet he won anyway? It’s like Zuckerberg making billions publishing fake right wing news but lowly media minnow Breitbart is the villain. It’s like a buffoonish misogynist defeating a highly qualified woman. It’s like that woman spending eight (twelve? thirty?) years locking up the Establishment’s support and then it turns out the electorate doesn’t trust the establishment. It’s a hundred crass celebrity ads when all you needed was a rust-belt listening tour. Isn’t it just so Ironic, don’t you think?
It’s when a white nationalist takes over from a successful black president. It’s democrats hoping and helping the GOP nominate that white nationalist and now he runs the country. It’s like Sanders saying Trump is a danger to mankind and now wants to work together with him. It’s like just when we need a credible opposition, all we’ve got is Chuck “Wall Street Welcomes” Schumer. It’s mass demonstrations in New York and San Francisco when what you need is to flip two vulnerable moderate GOP senators in Nevada and Arizona. Who would have thought, it figures.
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you when you think everything's okay and everything's going right, And life has a funny way of helping you out when you think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up in your face.
(Except if you insist on learning nothing from your mistakes and being surprised every time life doesn’t magically go your way. Isn’t that ironic?)
