Governance by whine

I have to hand it to the reporters at Axios. I can hardly get through one day of Trump’s verbal brain farts without treating myself to an hour long brain bleach shower to prepare for the next day’s assault, but they did a deep dive and compiled a full week of Trump’s verbal atrocities, for proper context. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the nonsense and mental depravity that make up the inner workings of Glorious Bleater. I strongly recommend that you check it out, if you have the stomach for it. And while I don’t want to hijack the entire 12 count indictment, there are a couple that I just want to highlight as being beyond the pale, even for Traitor Tot; He heckled Robert Mueller, both before the former special counsel’s testimony (tweeting “why didn’t Robert Mueller investigate the investigators?”) and afterwards (“Robert Mueller did a horrible job”). You know, they call it a “Friday night news dump” for a reason. Most politicians, when confronted with upcoming uncomfortable news, try to fob it off late on a Friday night, hoping that nobody will notice it at the bar. Even though it was a Wednesday, the concept is still the same. Leave it to His Lowness to give Mueller star billing to slam him, only to run the risk of people paying attention to see how terrible Mueller was, only to be caught up in the seriousness of his testimony against Trump. What a jackass. He infuriated the leaders of Afghanistan after noting that “if I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the Earth.” Afghanistan officials demanded a clarification. This is not just casual, almost offhand stupidity, and not only the stuff of an unnecessary international incident, but it poses a potential life and death threat to American soldiers deployed in Afghanistan. US troops aren’t exactly being greeted as liberators over there, with flowers and parades. I can only imagine US local commanders being pointedly asked by their Afghan counterparts if said counterparts should skedaddle for Pakistan if the US troops ever pull out. He suggested investigating Barack Obama’s book deal: “Let’s look into Obama the way they’ve looked at me … Let’s subpoena all of his records.” This shit is almost too easy, I’m going to get lazy if this keeps up. So, Trumpenstein was actually running for President when he falsely claimed that Obama “wiretapped” him, which was “totally unfair,” and now he wants to investigate the kind of a book deal that a private citizen negotiated? Hmmm Maybe Maxine Waters should have her committee take a peekie-see at what kind of financial malarkey went into Trump negotiating The Art of the Deal? Why not, right? He kept attacking four Democratic congresswomen of color, tweeting that the group was “a very Racist group of troublemakers.” This one is potentially dangerous, and it’s accelerating. I honestly believe that Trump dredged this up as a distraction for Mueller’s scheduled testimony before congress on July 17th, the timing fits nicely. But it proved to be so wildly popular with his socially retarded base that it has taken on a life of its own, including legitimate fears for the safety of representative Ilhan Omar. And now it has expanded to include House Oversight chair Elijah Cummings and his constituents, and Trump’s Tommee Tippee crowd is lapping it […]
