The Latest Appointment


In a late-night tweet issued from his headquarters at Trump Tower, president-elect Donald Trump announced that he has selected The Mouth of Sauron as his Press Secretary.

Since the fall of Sauron and the relocation of the Dark Tower of Barad-Dûr to midtown Manhattan, The Mouth of Sauron has been working as a senior advisor to Alex Jones at Infowars.com. Asked whether his ability to serve as president-elect Trump's press secretary would be adversely affected by the fact that Aragorn cut off his head, The Mouth of Sauron denied that a functioning head was a requirement for service in a Trump administration. He will assume the position following the inauguration of the new president on January 20th.

Have a good day. More thoughts - satirical and otherwise - coming.


* Apologies to those of you who already saw this on my Facebook page. I decided to push it out to a larger audience.

"He will assume the position..." I think we're ALL gonna have to do that. :-(

Another appointee to shudder at! At least he's not Jeff Sessions. :-(

I wonder whether Mama will wake me up on Jan. 1 and tell me it's only a nightmare.

Great take on things, Bilbo! He sounds like the ideal Trumpian flack.

Why not Darth Vader? Or is he not wealthy enough?

We are in for a plutocracy. And I don't mean Pluto, the dog!

So we get to listen to Sauron and his siren Kellyanne for four years? (Notice I didn't eight years. I still have a ray of distant hope.)

Excellent, just excellent!

I remember a wonderful audio version of the trilogy, done by the BBC many years ago (I had it on cassette until the cassettes died) that had a line about the mouth of Sauron: No story or history recorded his name because he had forgotten it.

10 votes for the American Electorate for the obvious reasons...
