Hit Pieces

Who is out to get Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar? Right before she announces her Presidential run. Snow flake staff say she was too tough on them. But. Who leaked the report to HuffPost? Let the games begin.

#MeToo? No. #TrumpToo. Presidential harassment. That’s what we’ll hear. For the next 2 years.

Recently had brunch at Café Luxembourg. A noisy crowded UWS staple. Kate Walsh said she used to waitress there and it was so bad during brunch she got fired for rolling her eyes. Don’t blame her.

Velvet Buzzsaw. Goofy gory spoof of the corrupt Art World. Jake Gyllenhaal zany as you’ve never seen him before.

David Pecker outing Jeff Bezos’.

SOTU Preview

Trump will walk in and hope people shake his hand. He’ll smile like he’s a rock star anyway. He’ll have victims of crimes by illegal immigrants sitting with Melania who will wear something gorgeously controversial.

Pelosi will make faces like she’s sucking lemons. Pence will look at the President the way Nancy Reagan looked at Ronnie.  Some Dems will stage a scene. Trump will say something predictably petulantly adolescently unprecedential. Take a chug every time he snorts or says border security or work together or best ever.

Who Wrote It?

Who wrote the anonymous NYT op-ed? Insider Trump Resistance?

Guess #1. Kirstejn Nielson. Homeland Security. Guess #2. Nick Ayers, Pence Chief of Staff. Guess #3. Melania Trump’s hairdresser.

Silent Coup

Coup de Trump. A post I wrote a little over a year ago. Has come true. Woodward’s book reveals a silent cabal headed by generals and White House staff hell bent on keeping President Trump from hurting the country. An insider who is part of this covert operation has written an anonymous op-ed in today’s New York Times. On first blush, we can take some solace in this. However, it’s dangerous.

Sets precedents for the future which make it okay to undermine a sitting duly elected President. He was well known to those who voted for him. He has not changed. His base believes that they had the right to put him into office. They did. Journalists and generals are not elected by the people. No matter how right-minded they believe themselves to be.

The silent coup is becoming noisy now. What will it mean for the country?

UnPrecedential Summit

After leaving at least G-5 of the G-7 shaking their heads back in Québec. Now the UnPrecedential President is in Singapore to meet Little Rocket Man for an unprecedented summit. Why not? Dennis Rodman in the house. Why not? Will Donny T make Kimmy Jong the new celebrity dictator? Why not? It’s a new day. In a new way. Pundits and analysts are spraying flame retardant all over each other so their hair doesn’t catch fire.

Back to the very presidential Obama. If true, he’s been having private summits of his own with so-called 2020 candidates. Joe Biden. Bernie Sanders. Elizabeth Warren. Deval Patrick. Cory Booker. Whew. Old and shallow bench. Dust off those MAGA hats.

Dennis Rodman is already wearing his. We’ll see.

Despicable He

Comey? Criticized by both sides of the aisle. Salacious self-serving book. Okay. He was canned ignominiously by the Kakistocratic Capo. Of course. He. The always despicable petulant adolescent President. Now in a sandbox fight with taunts and tweets right out of the elementary school playground. Assad? Genocidal autocrat. Putin? Comrade.

Makes you want to take the weekend off. Will do.

Stormy Spring

Trump vortex forming over the White House. Cannot keep up. Tweet tornadoes. Mueller. McCabe. Comey. Needed to get away from it all. Admired half-marathoners finishing a block away. Cleaned closets. Watched Bay Hill. Go Rory! No stats book obsession. He just steps up to the ball and takes the shot. Refreshing. With a leaderboard like that, golf could be back. Will Tiger peak at the Masters? Dream on. And. March zaniness. Gonzaga and Purdue left.

Stormy weather ahead. Vernal equinox notwithstanding. Happy St. Joseph’s Day.
