Amidst many, many, many shameful things about the current Cad-ministration, the refusal to answer straightforward questions is worth noticing. I believe there must be a guerilla training camp somewhere where these people gets schooled in a course called Tactics of Evasion. Here is a sampling of their strategies:
The Jeff Sessions Amnesia Method: “I do not recall.”
The Sarah Huckabee-Sanders Stepford-Wife Mantra Method: “Your question is irrelevant because “The President did nothing wrong. The President did nothing wrong. The President did nothing wrong. The President did nothing wrong.”
The Besty DeVos Stick to the Script Method: Questioner: “Please answer this question with either the word yes or no.” Devos: “Our committee has produced a 20-point action response that………….” “Yes or no!” “Our 20-point action response looks at…”
The Sean Spicer Disappearance Method: “Mr. Spicer, can you comment on…. Huh? Mr. Spicer? Sir, where are you?” Bystander: “Check the bushes.”
The Jeff Sessions Bible Method: “And Jesus said, ‘ for the law requires that you cruelly take innocent children from their parents and you must obey thy heavenly Father.’”
The Donald Trump It’s-All-About-Me Method: “Thank you for the question because now I can show you that my answers are the greatest! Nobody, and I mean nobody, can give answers like me and respects questions as much as I do. What was that question again?”
I am waiting for the day when all of the above are gathered in a room and told:
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to have an attorney. If you cannot afford one, one will be appointed to you by the court. With these rights in mind, are you still willing to talk with me about the charges against you?
Let their tactics of evasion answer that question!!!
