The first domino

Retired General Michael Flynn, who served as Donald Trump's Security Advisor for about 15 minutes before the Trump brain trust (yes, it's a contradiction of terms) decided that Flynn was too radioactive to be handled by anyone close to the administration, has asked for immunity from prosecution in exchange for possibly testifying about Trump's ties with Russia.

This may be an elaborate "catfish" situation, where what you're promised does NOT turn out to be what you get.

Or, it may the the first domino to fall in the inevitable crash of the Trump presidency.

Just a reminder, we're only TEN WEEKS IN so far!

Good ol' Dick Nixon took nearly four years before fucking his presidency by being overly paranoid and listening to bad advice from his own "brain trust" (who, from what I've seen so far, were WAY fucking smarter than the rancid collection of blathering sociopaths and incompetent sycophants that Trump has surrounded himself with) but The Donald is obviously WAY more terrific than Nixon and will be the most perfect president you've ever seen!

Remember the "Summer of Watergate"? The year that the Watergate hearings were televised live on every channel (pretty much all five of them) as nervous Senators were desperately trying to get to the bottom of a scandal which if they landed on the WRONG side of would spell the end of their political lives. Politicians had equally as much to lose if Nixon survived as if he was removed. It was a terribly stressful time for most of the people who populated the halls of Congress.

But the bipartisan support for impeachment became too much for Nixon, who resigned from office on August 9, 1974 after the articles of impeachment were passed by the House, and the Senate looked at a 77-0 straw vote for conviction that made Nixon's decision inevitable. He would have gone to jail had he not resigned and somehow got a miraculous pardon from new President Ford for any crimes he "committed or may have committed or taken part in" as president.

I'm not a legal scholar or anything, but it seems funny that someone can be pardoned for crimes not even known about at the time of the pardon. Who knows what terrible deviant crimes Nixon might have gotten away with? There might be dozens of dead hookers buried in the Rose Garden because Nixon just couldn't resist his urge to slice them up when the blood lust came upon him! But hey, he's pardoned! It doesn't matter anymore!

Anyway, I digress. I seriously doubt that Trump has had enough time to murder DC hookers in the last ten weeks; although, once he's dragged away to prison, I would strongly recommend to the authorities that it might prove fruitful to till the soil on Mar-a-Lago.

Trumpcare failure to launch

Today Paul Stupidhead Ryan pulled the horrendous "Trumpcare" bill before it came up for what was obviously going to be a losing vote.

Ryan didn't even give the ridiculous bill a vote because SO many Republicans actually have listened to their constituents and decided that political suicide wasn't exactly their cup of green tea!

That is known in engineering parlance as a "failure to launch".

I can only imagine the 3AM Twitter rant the Orange Cheeto will indulge in later this evening!

What the shit did he just say?

Lately I have to see if the source for bizarre stuff I read on Facebook is from The Onion! 'Cause this sure looks like it!


It's real.

He really said this!

Update: Shit. There should be a law preventing videos of public servants being removed from Youtube. It's our right to see a horribly ignorant person make a total ass of himself. Just Google "Ben Carson slaves" and click on the videos link. There will probably still be some of them there. For the record, Carson basically said that slaves who were kidnapped and shipped to America were immigrants who were seeking a better life for their families.

This is Trump's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson.
This joke is so fucking awful it should end with "Ta-da! The Aristocrats!"

Oh, and thank god for Samuel L Jackson!

In Happier Times

Remember when we had a president with a sense of humor? When we had a president who could connect with people? When we had a president who could even laugh at himself?

President Donald J. Trump knows that he can't come close to following this guy, and THAT'S why he's decided to be a coward and skip this year's White House Correspondents Dinner.

Because there's no way that small-handed vulgarian will EVER approach the level of class and grace that President Barack Hussein Obama gave us during his eight years in office!

Every single day, it becomes more clear that our nation has made a disastrous choice, and now we (and the entire world) are going to have to live with the consequences.

I can only hope that 2020 will see a return to sanity with our next president. If it's not too late.

Here's President Obama at the 2016 WHCD (his last), and keep in mind that Trump didn't have the balls to show up for THAT one, either!
