This just in: For Thanksgiving, I always buy a turkey that has one of those little pop-out indicators; the thing that pops out when the internal temperature indicates that the turkey is done.
I think that if you look closely at Trump these days, you might see one of these sticking out of his ass.
Trump…the turkey…is done.
Here is why.
I don’t want to go into the myriad of news articles that detail every little bit of information that indicates that Trump colluded AND conspired with the Russians to win his election.
But there are a couple of big bites to look at.
Trump tweeted his appreciation for one of his swamp monsters that took the 5th AND he tweeted a request for a harsh sentence for a swamp monster that flipped. This is witness tampering and it’s being done to obstruct the investigation.
Mueller recommended no jail time for General Flynn; Trump’s one-time National Security Advisor. Flynn held this role for 24 days (2.4 Scaramuccis). He did this because Flynn gave significant information about the Russia investigation. If there was a quid-pro-quo, not only would Flynn know about it but he would be in the middle of negotiating it.
Trump’s fixer, Cohen, flipped so hard Circ-de-Sole is thinking of naming a trapeze act after him. This is a guy that knows where the bodies of Trump’s past are buried. Since a lot of the investigation is looking into Russian ties to Trump, Cohen will be able to lead them to every Russian mob deal made over the last decade.
And finally, there is the Republican tell.
The Republicans, in a rare display of anti-Trump, have come out and said that the prince of Saudi Arabia was directly responsible for killing that journalist a couple of months ago.
This is a virtual first. Yes, there have been instances and individuals that have stood against Trump over his tenure but basically, they have supported him. He has been their (and Russia’s) Useful Idiot.
His time is coming to an end so the GOP has made a calculated decision to begin distancing themselves from Trump. This will work. It will work because as soon as Fox news joins the “abandon ship” movement, they will begin reprogramming their viewers to believe that Republicans always stood against Trump.
As I write this, I know it’s true. More interesting is that the book 1984 got so much right. If you’ve never read that book, read it now.
There is some light at the end of this long, tired tunnel of failure. I have heard whispers of a Republican movement called the New Republicans. This appears to be a group dedicated to restoring the Republican Party of 20 or 30 years ago. Let’s hope so.
