We all know that when Dotard drumpf makes an accusation he is almost certainly engaging in Psychological projection — it is so common in his speech that when one hears it, one can, with certainly, look to the accusation as a clue as to what the Orange Ogre has been up to…. Thus when he accused the Obama administration of “weaponizing” Government Agencies to use his political opponents he was either subconsciously telling us what his own administration is doing or consciously setting up a “whataboutism” argument for his friends at Fox news to employ. I’ll leave it to you to decide whether he is a one brain-cell organism responding to stimuli or a more complex lower life form capable of planning. Last night on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, Washington Post reporter Manuel Roig-Franzia indicated that Jeff Bezos’ lead investigator into the case of his extortion by National Enquirer owner David Pecker, Gavin de Becker, told the Post that a “government entity” had “gotten a hold” of the incriminating texts used to blackmail Bezos. “Gavin de Becker told us that he does not believe that Jeff Bezos’s phone was hacked – he thinks it’s possible that a government entity might have gotten a hold of his text messages.” This is most likely the reason Peckers has his undies in a bunch (sorry) about Bezos not being a good little victim and is, instead, investigating him and the National Enquirer. It was the Washington Post, after all, that 45 years ago began their Watergate investigation that rid the nation of the blot on the White House that was the Nixon Administration. How fitting, then, if it proves instrumental in bringing about drumpf’s downfall.
Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
