Baghdad Blob* was on Meet the Press this morning to discuss the week in Trump insanity. Needless to say, this exchange was chilling:
CHUCK TODD: Does [Trump] expect criminal charges, does he expect — he’s accused James Comey of treason. Does he expect Jim Comey to be arrested?
SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS: Again, we’re going to let the attorney general make that determination as he gets to the conclusion of this investigation.
TODD: So the president, he’s not going to accept …
SANDERS: But we certainly expect the people that were responsible and that were a part of this unprecedented obstruction and corruption at the FBI, those people should certainly be held responsible and be held accountable, and the president expects that to take place.
TODD: So he expects an outcome that he wants, not an outcome that the facts lead to.
SANDERS: Chuck, I think you’re trying to muddy the waters too much here. We already know, once again, that there was wrongdoing. Now we want to know how much there was.
TODD: I think what’s rich is who’s muddying waters.
SANDERS: Well, I don’t think it’s crazy to want to know how far and how wide the corruption at the FBI was, and that’s what the president has asked the attorney general to find, and we’ll see what happens.
Um … where to start?
First of all, the Mueller investigation was 100 percent legitimate. Look at all the crime it uncovered. Look at all the Trump campaign lies it exposed. Look at how much obstruction it revealed on the part of the pr*sident. A normal person would have seen a report like that and hid his head in shame. But Trump? He wants to jail the investigators. And he’s sending his new attack dog to do it.
Secondly, what the F? This can’t be repeated enough: The actual president of the United States wants to use the power of his office to prosecute people he doesn’t like. People who have criticized him, investigated him, and gotten under his skin. Meanwhile, war criminals get pardons and governments that use bone saws to murder U.S. residents get arms deals, contrary to the will of Congress.
And we’re supposed to pretend this is normal?
Let’s see what Sarah says when Trump declares himself emperor for life. I’m sure each and every criticism of that will be an “outrageous” affront to Dear Leader as well.
*This is not a comment on her weight. I’m merely pointing out that she’s a worthless, lying hunk of adipose with soulless, deep-set eyes who happens to look like a settee that Ed Gein never quite finished upholstering. And she’s a fake Christian. Let’s not forget that one.
