if there’s a bustle in your hedgerow

For the benefit of those playing along at home, paleofuturist Matt Novak—whose perspective is attuned to how our descendants might interpret our present—summarises the events of this past week of Dear Leader’s antics, which included a rather unprecedented dismissal of a chief investigator and vacillating on his reasons for doing so, a series of strange photo-opportunities, the White House press secretary hiding from reporters in the bushes outside of the West Wing. It’s overwhelming—and by design, I’m sure—but necessary housekeeping at times when customary and courtesy records and registers are already being censored and discontinued and this dint of revisionism could spread.
