This just in: Yesterday, Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Stormy Daniels, tweeted to Giuliani, “Buckle Up Buttercup.” Basically, the ride has only just started to get good.
The “Trump Witch Hunt” handed in 16 more guilty felony counts yesterday; 8 from his long-time lawyer/fixer and 8 from his campaign manager. Of these 16 felonies, only one really pointed at Trump. Cohen said he violated campaign laws at the direction of a Republican presidential candidate in an effort to help that candidate’s campaign.
Small stuff, really.
Isn’t that strange? The president is accused of being a co-conspirator to commit a felony crime and it’s really the least important and least illegal thing he has likely participated in for decades.
I predict Trump is going to face many, many more problems in the very near future. I think he’ll be charged with money laundering, bank fraud, tax evasion and treason.
All of this illegal stuff, in my humble opinion, is really not why I dislike him so much. I think he is a scumbag whose twisted personality is so foul it has reached out and affected the lives of every American.
He has made racism okay. He’s set back civil rights and discourse back to the 1960’s. He has damaged NATO which has been able to keep all of us safe for nearly 4 generations. He’s aligned our country with the lowest of dictators and withdrawn our standing as the Moral Authority in the world. He’s damaged international trade agreements that will lower the economic wellbeing of the entire world. He’s actively worked to enable exploitation of the planet; making it acceptable and even profitable.
And worst of all, he’s pulled back the curtain and exposed something I was in complete denial about – the fact that millions of Americans are completely okay with his behavior and even support it. Nearly the entire Republican Party, that I was once a member of, has been exposed as enablers of Trump. As he takes one swing after another at the world order pinata, Republicans gather around to scoop up their share of the ill-gotten candy that bleeds out. So long as there is candy, they will help him do whatever he wants to do.
Why do I say this? Watch the news today. Count how few Republicans step forward to wash their hands of this clown. Right now Fox News is talking about the 70 new jobs in Met Coal (used to make steel) in PA. This coal mine has nothing to do with Trump but Fox acts like he just saved the world…while failing to notice Cohen or Manafort.
Time to save the world.
Up, up and away…
