Irrelevant.  Some synonyms provided by Merriam-Webster include the following: Extraneous, immaterial, impertinent, beside the point, neither here nor there. “Irrelevant” is the regime’s word of choice when they are desperately trying to extricate him from scandal. The word is used by The Lyin’ King and his acolytes almost as frequently as Our Dear Leader uses the word “I” in his tedious orations. Almost.

The wagons are circled so tightly that light can’t pass between them. Where was the president all those hours he was MIA during the Benghazi attack? “Irrelevant” we are told. The IRS scandal still evolving around Our Imperial President? “Irrelevant.”  The law governing the illegality of targeting conservative political groups? You guessed it, mind-boggling as such a bald declaration flouting the law is; “irrelevant.” In case you think this is an exaggeration, every question posed here is a genuine example of questions and answers put to Dan Pfeiffer, a top White House advisor on Sunday.

Mr. Pfeiffer appeared on five Sunday talk shows in order to peddle a pathetic strategy designed to diffuse the current scandals plaguing The Monarch-in-Chief. Under the mistaken belief that even a lame offense is a good defense, he made the circuit, belligerent and insolent. According to the Associated Press, Pfeiffer had his most revealing moment on ABC’s Sunday show with George Stephanopoulos: “… Pfeiffer said the law governing the targeting of conservative groups was ‘irrelevant.’

“You don’t really mean the law is irrelevant do you?” host George Stephanopoulos asked. Pfeiffer clarified his statement, ‘…What I mean is that whether it’s legal, or illegal is — is not important to the fact that it — that, the conduct as a matter.  The Department of Justice said they’re looking into the legality of this.  The president is not going to wait for that.  We have to make sure it doesn’t happen again regardless of how that turns out…’.” There is so much wrong with that statement that it is impossible to pick just one. We can, however, begin with Pfeiffer’s incoherent attempt to ignore the criminality of The Lyin’ King’s government acts in order to deflect blame; the only thing that matters is that one must make sure the crime doesn’t happen again. This is the president’s mouthpiece telling us this, in front of television cameras and everything.

Pfeiffer was not quite through solidifying his reputation for arrogance; he insisted that some Republicans owe Susan Rice an apology. Why? For insisting that she had helped to mislead the American public. Didn’t she? Evidence uncovered last week proved, conclusively, that Rice’s talking points were fed her from the very top. She devoured them without question then regurgitated them, like the partisan, atomic-powered puke machine she is, on command. On the exact, same television circuit travelled by Mr. Pfeiffer. And an apology is owed because the talking points she’d wholly adopted came from higher up?

The hypocrisy of leftist behavior is well-known; for example, any accusation of malfeasance on the part of The Lyin’ King is derisively labeled “partisan politics” regardless of how partisan his own behavior is. The lesson here is more serious. The importance of this story lies in public realization of how gullible The Lyin’ King and his minions believe we are. POTUS is convinced that just because he or one of his flunkies says something on his behalf, no matter how outlandish, we are supposed to believe the statement true.

POTUS should call FLOTUS in for an emergency obesity consult because, unwelcome a guest as she may be to this regime, the fat lady is singing.
