Knives for sale, 70% off

The defeated former president’s faux-Twitter feed is now showing advertisements for switchblade knives, along with advertisements for alternatives to Botox and blood-pressure medication.

Every pane in the Overton window is broken, and the window’s casing has been ripped from the wall and thrown in a dumpster. The dumpster is burning.

[Why do I look at the defeated former president’s faux-Twitter? As a lack-of-wellness check on a dangerous, deranged man. I hit some kind of limit when seeing this advertisement.]

“Lack-of-wellness” is overly generous. It implies a temporary malady that the sufferer will eventually recover from. Instead, I believe Cheeto is innately evil.

Oh, I agree. I was thinking of the opposite of a wellness check — in other words, not to see if he’s okay but to see how far gone he is. As people often observe, if you had an older relative who was saying the stuff he’s saying, you’d intervene.
