As I reported here months ago, Iron, the goddess of Irony, is dead. She said, “fuck it” and put her head in the oven. So, she’s not here to witness this latest brilliant expression in the ironic arts on the part of Donald Trump and his cabal of clowns. Also, Satire has called in sick and we frankly don’t know if she’s going to make it, either. Experts fear that if Trump isn’t out of office soon, Satire may be on the terminal list, and join Irony in Comedy Heaven. Farce is running a high fever, too. The Trump administration has worn her clear out.
Since Trump is, at best, only functionally literate-who knows what he thinks transparency means?
But his staff told him it's better than what he wanted to call it?

He thinks a "transparency" is that funny plastic paper you put on the overhead projector when they let you play with the latest high-tech gear for a presentation.

How ironic. Signing EO’s on transparency. Hiding documents on secret servers, no presser in months, blocking testimonies, secret calls to dictators. Transparency everywhere except the WH.

Trump: transparency is what I tell you it is so don’t ask me any questions.

Truth is not truth. Transparency is opaque. Trump is not the President.

With Trump, the jokes just write himself

Yes, everything is transparent EXCEPT releasing subpoenas docs on Ukraine transcript & texts, mueller full un redacted report, 8 years of incoming taxes. Also, NO key witnesses(McGahn, Sondland & Giuliani) testimonies in front of House and Senate

If you take all the transparency in Trump’s administration, now, or what’s to come when this ridiculous order is signed, you can roll it up in a ball, stick it in a gnat’s navel, and still have room left over for Bill Barr’s and Rudy Guiliani’s ethics. The paper it’s written on and the sharpie used to sign it are worth more than the order itself.
