High Strangeness: A UFO on the Mar-a-Lago lawn

A UFO on the Mar-a-Lago lawn

I've been reading and hearing a lot this week about Trump's decision to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jung Un, and how Trump and his Keystone Cops White House staff are playing up that news to divert attention from the Stormy Daniels affair. The more the press and the public are obsessing over this radical and unexpected development in foreign policy, the less we're paying attention to the fact that our president is paying off porn stars to cover-up his extramarital affairs. Makes sense.

Politico sums up Trump's approach to Presidenting pretty nicely, I think:

[Last night’s announcement] spotlighted an instinct that has defined Trump’s early foreign policy: say the things others wouldn’t say; do the things they didn’t dare.
“He likes to be the first. He likes doing things no one has ever done before,” one senior Trump official said.

As I was reading this, it occurred to me that Mr. Trump is missing out on the biglyest distraction of all time. I think you know where I'm going with this:


Think about it: if Donald Trump announced today that we have been and continue to be in contact with extraterrestrial beings, and then he trotted out an alien or two, and arranged for them to land one of their saucers, or triangles, or orbs, on the White House lawn (or, more likely, at Mar-a-Lago), all of his troubles would be forgotten in an instant. Trump would go down in the history books as The President Who Made First Contact. He would be the ultimate President who did what no other Presidents would dare. And, in the furor that resulted, the public and the press would be all, "Stormy who?" "Russia, what?" 

Seriously, why fret about an earthly nemesis like Kim Jong Un when we could be dealing with a real "Little Rocket Man?"
Disclosure: Why didn't it happen this week?
 It would be a  a double-whammy WIN-WIN for Trump, something that he would never be able to resist. Not only would all his scandals and controversies be swept under the rug immediately and for all time, but he could lay claim to the biggest, greatest brag ever to be bragged by anyone: "I exposed the government's UFO coverup, and revealed the existence of ET!"

Which only goes to prove that Disclosure is a load of hooey, because if there really was a huge UFO bombshell, if this option really was open to Trump, if this was something he really could do, this would have been the week he'd have done it. And the fact that he didn't tells me that there's no Disclosure bombshell to drop.
