Trump Admin Leaks

Last week, a terrorist attacked a music concert in Manchester, England. The local constabulary (a word that caused difficulties for Carlos Tevez) is sharing information with American law enforcement. And somewhere in that chain, someone is sharing the information with American media.

Most people see this as a continuation of the Trump administration leaks, but I don't. These leaks are different. The leaks we've had so far have been the result of anti-Trump bureaucrats seeking to undermine the Trump administration from within. But that's not what's happening here.

I see these leaks as tied to American anthrotheism. Modern Americans can't know information without sharing it, because it's their only way of getting acknowledged by the God-stand-in that is the general public.

If you want to know what this ends up looking like, imagine every security-clearance-carrying government employee acting like Kristen Wiig's surprise-party-loving Sue character on Saturday Night Live.
