News of the Week

We got the bubble-headed-bleach-blond who
comes on at five.
She can tell you 'bout the [train wreck] with a gleam
in her eye.

Who would have thought Don Henley could be so prophetic?  Here's Kayleigh McEnany giving us the "News of the Week" live from Trump Tower.  I guess Kayleigh got tired of being a punching bag on CNN.  Hard to say if she will be tag teaming with Lara Trump, or if she is now the face of Trump News.

You figure these are the first ginger steps into the water of news propaganda by Team Trump, as they try to give their facebook podcast a face followers can relate to.  If the first installment was any indication, it seems Eric may be the driving force behind this new mission.  Lara is not new to television.  According to Cosmopolitan magazine, she interned with local North Carolina television news stations and Inside Edition.

Better not let Stephen Miller know about this.  Can't have anyone with a cosmopolitan bias working for Team Trump.

Whatever its mission, the perky podcasts sure attracted television pundits.  No one let these installments go by without a comment.  The folks at CNN were particularly hard on Kayleigh, who told facebook followers of her departure before informing CNN officials.  I'm sure Team Trump will buy out her contract.

The whole thing is so cheap and tawdry that it just might work.  It has the look of local news, which is the way most Trump supporters get their news.  Team Trump can even offer its own real weather segment, highlighting the good weather around the country instead of the nasty storms that meteorologists all too often credit to global warming.  I guess we will just have to stay tuned for news at 11.
