Complicit or Incompetent?

From tengrain at Mock Paper Scissors:

…why does the press always give The First Shady and Trump’s Fratsputin Jared a get-out-of-jail-free card every time Preznint Stupid shoots hisself in his gnarly cloven hooofie? We always told that they are the reasonable, moderating influences, but there is never any supporting evidence to go with those assertions.

I don’t believe in attacking the minor children of politicians (hands-off Barron please, just like hands-off the Obama kids, and what should have been hands off minor Chelsea during the 1990s), but Jared and Ivanka are not just adults, they are parents. And they hold the exalted title of special advisors to the president, they have actual offices in the west wing. There should not be special rules for them.

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
