Ignorance has always been difficult for me to read! Having found wisdom and deep reasoning in communities described in National Geographic, in drunks and homeless persons sharing burnished honesty about their lives; having seen the imagined fears of police replayed as triggers for guns that ended lives, and seen adults smear student survivors of mass shootings, Frank Bruini’s logic, that EPA Director Pruitt’s antics of contempt would be “center stage” were it not for the Gordian knot between Trump and Mueller (an investigation in which Mueller has not given a press conference or been the source of leaks while ably gaining swift guilty pleas for real threats tied to criminal actions) is ignorance. Not just nuts, but a flawed logic parallel to Pruitt’s antics–exceeded only by Trump’s loathsome double standard of lies and greater lies.
Frank turns Mueller into a straw person and commits the worst example of blaming the victim I have witnessed! What Frank assigns to Mueller should be assigned to media. It is a media problem–a media obsession!–created by media’s corporate model of droning on about speculation while it ignores the facts and real trends.
Nothing, prevents the media (broadcast/print–and Frank himself) from illuminating new places, people, and crimes. For one, I would like to see more about the Seychelles meeting, the water problem in Flint. But it is not Mueller’s fault, as Frank implies.
Mueller’s secrecy doesn’t choose where the light goes–his silence actually makes his investigation attractive to both the media and Trump. Payoff Spanky and the media have plenty to deflect! Frank’s ignorance butchers a handy scapegoat.
