Move it on over
“If you ask him why he lies, he would, of course, lie.” —George Conway.
I’m sure by now you’ve noticed. When it comes to the Rule of Law, subpoenas, contempt citations, congressional oversight, etc., etc., President Capone and his army of slithering lickspittles (a.k.a. all Republicans in D.C.) simply do not give even the tiniest of fux. Dum Dum now brazenly says, “Hey, send all the bleepin’ subpoenas you want. Send all the requests for documents and emails you want. You know what me and Sarah and Kellyanne and Ivanka and Jared are gonna do with those requests? We’re going to shred them. We’re going to ignore them. And what the fuck are you gonna do about it?”
That’s a good question. What are we going to do about it? Anything? Any goddamn thing? Ever?
Actually, I believe we are. Yes, things might be moving a tad slowly on some legal fronts, but they are indeed moving along and in the proper direction. And if we’re gonna be the folks who say we still give a shit about The Game and How It’s Played, well then, we better play it, and play it good. There are some dandy committees in The House, headed by smart, competent folks (Nadler, Waters, Neal, Cummings, Schiff) who know what they’re doing and are ready to get after it. And the AG in New York, Letitia James? Trump’s worst nightmare. She is the Wicked Witch of Albany, and she has some very ornery bat-monkey lawyers who are all hot and itchy to swarm anything Trump.
But as we wait for The Game to play out, it’s kinda like the ReTrumplicans have installed The Joker as President (which, come to think of it, is pretty much exactly what has taken place). The Joker Prez says, “Hey folks, you can go right ahead and kiss my mottled ass. I don’t give two crusty dog poops about your congressional oversight bullshit. You see the latest unemployment stats? 3.6 percent. So don’t bore me with this oversight stuff. Just go to work, pay off your jet-ski, and STFU. OK? I gotta run now, Vlad’s on the horn.”
And isn’t it odd how Twitler now doesn’t want The Great Exonerator to speak to Congress? One would think that if there was one guy in the whole stinkin’ USA that Trump would want to have yakkin’ it up out there on every chat show from The View to The Zoo, it would be Mueller Himself, out there on the fruited plain doin’ some tip top, non stop exoneratin’. Gee, Joker, what up?
