Hidden Geniuses

“I am at the moment writing a lengthy indictment against our century. When my brain begins to reel from my literary labors, I make an occasional cheese dip.” – from the novel, “A Confederacy of Dunces” by John Kennedy Toole

There are geniuses, and then there are “hidden” geniuses.

Leave it to the exiting US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, who hasn’t seen a war, bombing campaign or regime change operation that she wasn’t licking her pursed lips over, to tell it like it is when the “presence” of real genius is lurking about…somewhere:

Jared Kushner is a ‘Hidden Genius” That No One Understands, Nikki Haley says as She Resigns – via Newsweek.com

“I can’t say enough good things about Jared and Ivanka,” Haley said in the Oval Office about Kushner and the president’s daughter. “Jared is such a hidden genius that no one understands.”

Haley elaborated on Kushner: “I mean to redo the NAFTA deal the way he did.… What I’ve done working with him on the Middle East peace plan, it is so unbelievably well done.”

There it is…forget Mozart, Dostoevsky, Twain, Beethoven, Rembrandt, Picasso, Malcolm X, King, O’Connor, Austen, RFK, and too many others to keep listing, we have a “hidden genius” in our midst.  Sadly, no one understands him.

Kushner, who had no prior government experience, was entrusted with a broad portfolio as a senior White House administration that includes forging peace in the Middle East. No peace plan has been presented publicly to date.

Like the great American novel stuffed into a desk drawer that no one has ever read, Haley waxes on about a Middle East peace plan that no one has yet seen. Does it call for simply continuing with this and previous administrations policies of bombing the hell out of nearly every Middle East country?  Maybe it’s that winning combination of bombing countries and sanctioning them to death. Who knows for sure because it hasn’t been presented yet, but it is so unbelievably well done.

Haley continued that “Ivanka has been such a good friend” and that the couple “do a lot of things behind the scenes that I wish more people knew about, because we’re a better country because they’re in this administration.”

It’s shyte like this that can makes one’s eyes bleed.

Please, Nikki….tell us what these things that Ivanka and Jared have done behind the scenes that make the US a better country. Because it’s all just lollipop’s and candy canes falling from the sky from what the average American can see. I mean, really, do we need more improvements to the gravy train that the everyday citizen is experiencing?

It can’t get any better than all this, right? Maybe these shenanigans are the result of the “hidden genius” that Ms. Haley speaks of from Jared Kushner, or Ivanka, Trump, Bolton, Pompeo and Mattis. Doesn’t matter, as none of them could really give a shyte about it all. It’s all about declaring their genius for the world to adore.

It can’t get any more strange or bizarre, right?  Sure, it can – we only need to pay attention to the “hidden geniuses” of the modern era as they advance the world closer to its destruction.

  1. Thank you. Nikki will be missed, by stand up comedians at least. Such a rich source of material has left the stage.

    Frankly, I don’t know how the entertainment folks on the news desk can read their lines without laughing. They must have a whole semester at journalism school to teach them that “skill”. But then again, if they didn’t believe the stuff they were reading, they wouldn’t be warming that seat every night.

    Nikki Haley is gone, but there isn’t a shortage of shysters out there to replace her. It’s like the scene from Fantasia, with Donald Trump playing the apprentice (the connection is almost to obvious) creating an endless number of buffoons to do his bidding until they no longer please him. In the background of Paul Dukas’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice you can hear Donald shouting “you’re fired” again and again. File it under science fiction horror.
