It’s that sequence of reactions.
First one, then the next and then the third, then the fourth.
As Riyadh and Washington float their trial balloons and refine their lies and alibis one is depressed.
As the “rogue killers” farce gains momentum one is fascinated..
As the momentum continues and as donnie’s slime rises around him one becomes deeply disgusted
And, as the slime mixes and mixes and mixes with the blood of a Washington Post correspondent only irony remains.
Given donnie’s love of the Saudis and his hatred of the Washington Post how could it have been otherwise?
Only irony remains.
