The political theater of the absurd

How else do you describe our Dear Leader going on TV with the Tax Cheat he put in charge of the US Treasury Department, so they could describe how they are going after offshore tax havens?

I don't give this good odds of getting through Congress. It's a fairly safe bet that a majority of the Senate and good chunk of the House have some of their own money sheltered from US taxes in those offshore tax havens. I'm pretty sure both of my Senators, the convicted felon and the admitted war criminal, are avoiding their fair share of taxes that way.
