Politics is a complex subject to write about. There are corrupt candidates and backroom deals. There are essential issues and down-to-the-wire races. And there are crazed insurrectionists and nutty candidates.
And I’ve written about them all. But never in my wildest of wild dreams did I think I’d be writing about popcorn. That’s right. You heard me. Popcorn. Before I go on, I must admit to being a fan of the delicious snack.
Popcorn with hot, delicious butter is a gift that I keep eating. I am sure many of you enjoy popcorn. But I doubt any of you in your wildest dreams would ever equate popcorn with — Donald Trump. This is what Lauren Boebert has just done. In Wyoming. talking to Republicans, Boebert declared she had proof that Donald Trump is a good person.
Wow. Who would have ever thought? Donald Trump having decency? These words belong in the fiction aisle, in my opinion. So what’s Boebert talking about anyway? She’s talking about — popcorn. Boebert declared that all the reports about what an evil bastard Trump is are fake news. And she has proof!
“My family and I were with President Trump, and even not like germs, Trump shared a bowl of popcorn with my 14-year old son. Now listen, Wyoming! I know where he’s been. I don’t share food with my son.”
How incredible! So Donald Trump eating popcorn with a child proves his humility? Are people actually gullible enough to say “aw shucks” and get tears in their eyes at this touching news story?
It would appear so. Not this writer, however. The conclusions of this writer are more ominous in nature. My conclusion? Boebert isn’t too bright. Popcorn, while very tasty, has nothing to do with Trump.
My other conclusion is Trump is a pathetic coward and sociopath, and I, along with many, don’t give a damn why he chose once to share his popcorn. Boebert really needs better talking points. Popcorn is, however, coming to your home soon, hopefully. The reason is the January 6 hearings will soon be starting. And that is a pretty good reason to pop some kernels.
