Argus Hamilton: Kennedy Center is best place to launder hush money

HOLLYWOOD — God Bless America, and how’s everybody?

President Trump reluctantly signed the budget bill into law and blasted Congress for spending too much. The bill he signed just happened to allocate $30 million to the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington. It’s been proven over the years as the best place to launder the Playmate hush money.

Anderson Cooper interviewed Stormy Daniels about her sexual encounter with Donald Trump twelve years ago at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe on Sunday on CBS’ 60 Minutes. The interview was a real breakthrough for Stormy. It’s the first time anybody watched her for sixty minutes in a row.

President Trump appointed super-hawk John Bolton his National Security Advisor Thursday, alarming the world. The appointment is considered to be the nearest to declaring war on Iran and North Korea. I read about John Bolton’s appointment in the Los Angeles Times and the Book of Revelation.

President Trump named CIA director Mike Pompeo, a known hard-liner on Iran, as the next Secretary of State last week. This is no time to mess with the U.S. With war hawk, John Bolton’s appointment, the only moderate left is Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, and his nickname is Mad Dog.

President Trump tried to hire defense lawyer Joe DiGenova to go after Hillary’s connection to Putin when she was Secretary of State in the collusion probe. There’s no comparison. The difference between Vladimir Putin and Hilary Clinton is that Putin can win an election that’s rigged in his favor.

United Airlines gave a passenger a ten thousand dollar travel voucher for volunteering to give up her seat on an over-sold flight. It seems air travel has never been more miserable. If Confucius were alive today, he’d say that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a screaming baby in coach.

HBO Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon announced for New York governor and she was promptly called an unqualified lesbian by a lesbian ally of Governor Cuomo. Crime, not sex, is the issue. New York subways are so dangerous that many New Yorkers have decided to start urinating at home.

Washington D.C. and other major cities saw huge demonstrations by young people against gun violence Saturday. School shooters are just one example of the evil among us. White women in the Midwest have been asked to chill with the make-up until we get this clown situation under control.

Los Angeles hosted a big student march against school shootings Saturday. One Pennsylvania school district armed each desk with a bucket of rocks which the kids can throw at any shooter who enters the room. No one knows what will happen if the attacker comes armed with paper and scissors.
