Kremer’s Corner: Politics today as told by movie titles

Every time I turn on the television and watch the developments in Washington, D.C., it reminds me of some movie I have seen in the past.

Just labeling the conduct and affairs of the White House and Congress with a name is not enough.

It’s much easier to compare their actions to some movie whose title says it all.

Generally, I try to give any President, whomever that may be, the benefit of the doubt.

Every newcomer to the Oval Office has to go through some breakthrough time.

But watching Donald Trump tweeting away and clinging to alternative facts and a handful of lies, reminds me of “The Madness of King George.”

While the Revolutionary War was raging on, George was totally out of touch with the real world just like Donald Trump is.

He refused to focus on the life or death of his own soldiers, because he was so out of touch.

The daily stories about Russian interference with our elections and our national safety could fall under the title of “From Russia With Love.”

The President makes nice to them and he surrounds himself with a handful of Russia lovers.

In the meantime, Russian hackers steal the personal information of a billion Yahoo users around the world in an attempt to bring down the economy of our nation and others.

It is only a matter of time before the Russia-Trump connections before the election put the spotlight directly on the President.

Watching the U.S. Congress these days reminds me of both “Silence of the Lambs” and “Animal House.”

The House of Representatives is the craziest bunch of people I have ever observed.

A group of 60 members, whose goal is to take down the government, control the entire Republican Party leadership.

The few party moderates are drowned out by a chorus of boos from the Freedom Caucus.

Speaker Paul Ryan is as completely detached from humanity and couldn’t care less about the people who can’t help themselves.

He makes the whole ugly scene even uglier.

As for “Silence of the Lambs,” while the President tweets away making outrageous claims about being wiretapped and attacking Arnold Schwzanegger, the party in power cringes in some corner, afraid to take on the President.

They are desperate to get tax cuts for the rich and to repeal Obamacare, at any cost.

They are afraid of the Trump voters, so they hide in their bunkers hoping that the President’s latest rants will  quickly evaporate.

Take a good look at the President’s inner circle and it must remind you of “Dances with Wolves.”

Mr. Trump is surrounded by such people as Steve Bannon, whose approach to government is to destroy it and turn America into a monarchy.

Steven Miller, who believes that the American judicial system should bow down to the President, is another part of the scariest team I have ever come across.

Little children should be kept out of the White House for fear of giving them nightmares.

Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain seem to be the only two people who have escaped from the insanity of the White House and the cowering members of the House.

It sort of reminds me of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”

Graham and McCain have no fear of the political inmates and are prepared to go where others are afraid to go.

Maybe over the passage of time this President will be “Gone With the Wind,” but the thought of Michael Pence as president could match the title of any of the worst horror movies.
