#trumpswindle | #WhatTheyVotedFor
This is not a word game. I dare you to put all these words and strings of words together in some way that makes sense:
• Mercenary• Brother of future Secretary of Education• Unofficial Trump envoy• Secret meeting• The Seychelles• Russia• United Arab Emirates• Qatar• Failed loan negotiation• President’s family• Blockade• UAE hired mercenary army to invade Qatar
And remember: This is how the news cycle has gone over the last week, in terms of what we learn about the #trumpswindle.
In the moment we might pause to imagine a photo of Erik Prince tacked to a wall amid a network of yarn connecting him to other photos of people in some vast conspiracy theory, we could easily also admit it is rather quite a strange prospect to say, So that’s what he was doing in the Seychelles.
It might also behoove us to wonder at the spectacle of such intrigue; to some degree it really does seem melodramatic adventure complete with villanous buffoonery—or is it buffoonish villainy?—is #WhatTheyVotedFor.
