Game of Loans

Follow the money. Mueller will subpoena Trump’s tax returns. They may well reveal shady dealings. Loans from Russian banks? Deutsche Bank can’t be the only source of funding. Donnie Jr. already admitted as much. And. Kushner comes from a sleazy clan with a history of crossing legal and ethical lines. So. Here we go.

Pence has lawyered up. He must have been witness to compromising discussions of at least obstruction. He’ll have to tell the truth. Or resign. Next in line. President Paul Ryan.

Wimp Patrol

The white guys let slimy Comey slither. A snake when he grandstanded to thwart Hillary’s election chances. Now his so-called candor is congratulated as he leaks memos through a friend. It took Senator Dianne to call out Comey for not putting on his big boy pants and stand up to Trump. Why didn’t he say no to The Donald’s invitations? Advise him about proper FBI etiquette? He was either surreptitiously creating a case for obstruction or he’s a political wimp.

Then there are Sessions, Priebus, and Kushner who scurried away, leaving Trump alone with Comey while peeking in through the door. Boo! Retreat. McConnell & Ryan. Saying Donald’s a rookie, doesn’t know the ropes. No heroes here. Milquetoast patrol. We are screwed.

Calling On Congress

To act. Check. Balance. Intervene. Take a stand. Is there a statesman or stateswoman in the House? Or the Senate? It’s not okay to support the behavior of this petulant adolescent President. Tolerate dangerous tweets. Huge leadership vacuum. Mitch. Paul. Where are you? It’s not about legalities. Nor policies. Nor the next election. It’s about the Country.

The Press is no better. They cheerlead for tweets and misdeeds to keep coming. Ranting about Russia. Soliciting leaks. For ratings and dollars. As Rome burns.

House of Trump Cards

House of Cards is back. Yay! Since we last left President Frank Underwood there has been a real election. And somebody even worse than Frank has won. Or does he make even The Donald look good? Does Claire? We’ll see. Ready for a binge-fest.

What would be a House of Trump fantasy plot? The Cabinet which consists of generales and consiglieres resigns after Melissa McCarthy announces at her press briefing that Trump is declaring war on Germans who still look like “nah-zees”. Mattis & McMaster mount a military coup. They deport the Donald to Russia to build concrete condos for Putin & Co. Pence joins Church of Scientology and Karen goes missing. The Donald’s current and former wives whose names end in the letter “A” create a pink pussy coif coven. Don Jr. & Eric retreat to a big-game hunt in Africa and are eaten by hyenas. Jared & Ivanka hightail it to Southeast Asia to make cheap shoes. Tiffany heads off to law school after she puts covfefe in Barron’s Cocoa Puffs.

Trump Trap

FBI-Ex Director Jim Comey thought Hillary was going to win. So revealed Anthony Weiner’s server investigation to save his skin. Just covering his ass. But. Hillary did not win. And Comey’s now potentially complicit in a Trump presidency.

How does Jimmy Comey right that wrong? He needs to take Donny Trump down. It becomes too easy. Donny keeps calling Jimmy. Jimmy could say no no I can’t take the call. No no I won’t have dinner with you. Instead he says yes. Keeps Donny talking. Then writes everything down. Laying the trap for obstruction of justice. Devious.

– Washington Post somewhat agrees

Tuesday Bombshell

Trump to Comey. Can I have a private word with you? Get everybody out! So, Jimmy. Luca Brasi is sleeping with the fishes. Get my drift? Flynn is a good guy. Let this Flynn thing go. Okay? What? No! Well, I’ll show you.

Jimmy to Trump. Did you see what I did to Hillary after Bill met with Loretta on the tarmac? Don’t mess with me. When I get angry, you’ll pay. Trump seethes.

Trump fires Jimmy in a nasty way. Disrespects. So. Today. NYTimes suddenly has a memo from Jimmy. Obstruction of justice. Oops. Oh Donny. How stupid can you be?

That Russia meeting is so yesterday.

End Game

Trump is off the rails. As usual. Petulant Adolescent President. Tweeting breathless threats. No change there. Comey’s firing has set the mainstream media’s hair up in smoke. Dems talking impeachment. Russia obsession cranked into hyperdrive. So. Let’s say Trump blows himself up. Resigns. Gets run out of D.C. What then? 3 + years of Pence. A saner yet far right-wing regime. Would that be an improvement? We may find out.

Kind of like the odds of hitting a hole-in-one on the island green. Sergio?!
