General Flynn and Dr. Strangelove
Michael Flynn’s tweet wasn’t actually about #PizzaGate, but his son is now defending the baseless conspiracy theory
As if the president-elect behaving like a refugee from the Jerry Springer show, with his incessant and downright asinine Tweets, wasn't enough ... now we have the Man Who Would Be National Security Advisor, and his chief of staff in the middle of things.
Flynn and his offspring have been active in the far right craziness for some time now.
The son of top Donald Trump adviser and retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn regularly shares conspiracy theories, expletive-filled posts, and racially insensitive sentiments on Twitter and Facebook, a CNN KFile review of his social media presence reveals.
Flynn's son, Michael G. Flynn, shared stories alleging top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin had a connection to the Muslim Brotherhood, pushed a conspiracy theory that Sen. Marco Rubio was a closeted homosexual who abused cocaine, and repeatedly used expletives to attack Trump's political opponents.
Flynn Senior comes across like a wild-eyed whackjob out of a remake of Dr. Strangelove. Sadly, Sterling Hayden is no longer around to play Flynn in such a remake, but his original play as "General Jack D. Ripper" may well be close enough. All we have to do is substitute "Muslims" or "Islam" for Hayden's references to "Commies" and we have ... Flynn!
I'll wager Flynn could really run with this one. Maybe a rant over vaccinations rather than fluoridation would bring it up to modern speed:
That's what we have in our soon-to-be National Security Advisor.
