It was all layed out for him beforehand


"It was miraculous. It was almost no trick at all, he saw, to turn vice into
virtue and slander into truth, impotence into abstinence, arrogance into
humility, plunder into philanthropy, thievery into honor,
blasphemey into wisdom, brutality into patriotism and sadism into
justice.
Anybody could do it; it required no brains at all.
It merely required no character." - Catch 22

Mitch "kiss my ass darkie" McConnell fits this bill as well as them who keep him in office. That the current administration was built on turning lie to belief is something else I can not define.

The Trump business empire reminds me of Milo's syndicate: Making money off the war by taking a contract to bomb your own airfield and trading the silk parachutes for cotton futures. The only thing missing is Natley's Whore's Kid Sister.

Catch 22... perfect.. and so applicable! (not only for Trumpesque absurdities... but for far too much of what is happening... )
