The Friday Fumbles
by Mike Meyer
My goodness, it’s hard to keep up with Trump’s self immolation. He sets himself on fire every time he opens his mouth. We may not need to impeach as he will just burn himself to the ground.
The entire planet has watched, appalled, for three years as Trump committed crimes and outrages every month. We don’t need to go into things so mundane as stunning displays of ignorance or groveling at Putin’s feet or being danced around while being played like a fiddle by Kim Jong-un.
The fact that he appears delusional part of everyday, now, is clearly old news. Over the last two years the primary attention has shifted, somewhat, to the antics of his officials as they desperately tried to stay up with the speed and vast sweep of his lies. The steady ejection of sycophants who failed to properly massage Trump’s malignant narcissistic ego has, over three years, produced an significant pile of bodies.
Unfortunately for Trump they all didn’t agree to stay dead after he got tired of them. He seems to have better luck with the women who accept positions with him as they remain subservient and don’t turn on him at the rate of the men. I suspect that the type of women who are willing to work for Trump are a rather limited and unique group.
It has been constantly noted that he has been disintegrating steadily over these three years. The other amazing thing to watch has been the frantic ducking and dodging of the US media in their committed attempt to maintain that this is all just slightly unusual but basically as it has always been, politics as usual. This is outdone by the New York Times that continues to deny any pretense of ethics or morality in the name of . . . greed?
But that whole normalcy thing has finally crashed and burned in the flames of the Ukraine and, now China. Meanwhile the quid pro quo stake has been sharpened and Nancy Pelosi is selecting the best hammer to use. That is becoming difficult with, yet another, whistleblower complaint pending on the original Ukraine disaster. The way it is going everyone but Trump and Rudy may decide to file a whistleblower complaint.
That could be a good way to, secretly, save your ass if your in the Trump stooge pool. Everyone gets a whistleblower card to get out of jail.
I’m not sure how to define the public, televised admissions of guilt that seem to be a normal morning show on the Trump channel now. We’ll see what the Trumpster admits to, tomorrow. Since he is now well over the edge into complete delusions of godhood, at least he bypassed Napoleon for what that is worth, we can only wait and see.
He did announce today that he had ‘saved’ Christianity’ and made it good again, as he was told by some (all) Evangelical whatevers. That bit of news didn’t last long as no one knew quite what to do with it and it is not, yet, a clearly impeachable offense.
Actually, I thought that was another guy a long time ago but maybe Trump is saving just American Christianity. Since those people have followed him they will need a lot of help. I think this is clearly one of those things that should be left right where it fell. No need to pick it up.
And I haven’t even gotten to Rudy, yet. The thing is that Rudy has gone so far down hill he can’t even complete a sentence. Of course Trump hasn’t been able to do that for some time but we know he is always using names from a limited number of long debunked conspiracy theories.
Sadly we have a growing number of world leaders who have had these long dead and bizarre theories foisted on them by either Trump or his pet, William Barr. This is getting worrisome from the looks of Finland’s President Sauli Niinisto in having to set with Trump at a press conference. No one wants anything to do with a shouting nutcase particularly one who wants to bend your ear about a crazy conspiracy theory that you have never heard of. There could be nasty repercussions from this.
The US has enough problems so why add a group of enraged world leaders who have suffered a call from Trump or a visit from Barr. This is getting more embarrassing by the day.
What a Friday!
