Witch Hunt

Bruce Plante Cartoon: Trump and the Witch Hunt

I don’t know about you but this appears to me to be the most successful “WITCH HUNT” the world has ever seen. Yes is seems that Robert Mueller and his 13 or 17 “Angry Democrats” are slowly but surely riding the elevator to the top floor of Trump Tower. And guess who is up there? Junior, Ivanka, Jared, and the gloomy fat man himself with the cotton candy hair.

Let’s take a moment and review the six Trump “witches” the Mueller probe has snared to date;

  1. George Papadopoulos-a former member of Trump’s foreign policy advisory panel later referred to as a “coffee boy” by team Trump.
  2. Michael Flynn- Trump’s oh so brief (21 days) National Security Advisor. Who everybody, and I do mean everybody, said run Forrest run away from. He didn’t.
  3. Paul Manafort- Trumps campaign chairman. “Gosh we hardly knew him!”
  4. Rick Gates- Manafort’s right hand man and later Trump’s campaign manager. “I met a Bill but not a Rick.”
  5. Michael Cohen- Trump’s lawyer and “Fixer”. The guy who once said he would take a bullet for Trump and is now worried about a bullet coming from the Trump Mafia.
  6. And the latest; the warm, the fuzzy, the arrogant, and egomaniac Roger Stone. The guy with a tattoo of Tricky Dicky Nixon on his back. The guy who, out of all the people listed above, has been in The Donald’s orbit the longest, almost 50 years.

Look I know this seems to be taking forever and it would also appear that we, the American people, are paying a very heavy price for having this old, moldy tangerine remain in power but here is the thing we need all of the dirt, all of the crimes, and all of the corruption that Trump has directed and been involved in to come to the surface. Why? Because his base, those 35 to 40% that are still duct taped to him, needs to be whittled down to 20-25%.

Thankfully Trump is helping us accomplish that. As people suffer during this shutdown, and the hardships are rampant, the “Great Negotiator” is hiding in his bedroom tweeting about CNN and MSNBC, which he says he never watches, Crooked Hillary and coming up with catchy slogans like “BUILD THE WALL AND CRIME WILL FALL”, coming soon to a $30 t-shirt near you, as his poll numbers sink.

In the meantime, as Donald Brump shelters in place for another weekend away from Mar-a-Lago in his dark, lonely and very isolated room, with just his bank of televisions and his public relations weapon of choice, twitter, to keep him company it is up to Trumps family and administration to carry the MAGA torch, and oh what a marvelous job they are doing;

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross-Why can’t federal workers just get a loan?

Director of the National Economic Council Larry Kudlow-Federal employees are showing up for work as volunteers.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders- Roger Stone who? What about Hillary Clinton and James Comey?

And my favorite;

Daughter in-law Lara Trump-Come on, this shutdown is just causing a little bit of pain.

This shutdown has absolutely nothing to do with Trumps ego wall (who’s going to pay for it?) and everything to do with his and Rudy’s demented three “D’s” strategy to deflect, divert and distract. If building this wall and us paying for it instead of Mexico was really that important to him why didn’t he push it through when he had a Republican majority in both houses? Why? Deflect, divert and distract.

I know I have been saying that the end is near for a longtime and I still firmly believe that. But when it comes, and it is coming, I want it to be definitive, destructive, and debilitating (my three “D’s”) for Trump and his family. I want the few sane and the rational Deplorables to have no doubt in their minds that they made the wrong choice in supporting this piece of shit. Will we get 100% of them? Oh hell no. Even Richard Nixon, as he was boarding the helicopter to leave the White House in shame had his supporters (25%). I want that same kind of shame for Trump.

He declares on his company website that the Trump name “redefines what is meant by luxury living, built to be the absolute best in the world.” For the next generation of Americans (not the old, white, fat people living in Florida and South Carolina today) I want the Trump name to stand for greed, corruption, dishonesty, deceit, hate, intolerance, and evil. Thankfully for the vast majority of Americans Trumps name holds no golden luster. It didn’t in the beginning because we were smart enough to see through his bullshit and slowly but surely many more will join us. I promise. And if they don’t we will be okay. Old white men can’t live forever even those with bad spray tans and a dead squirrel on their head.

    I’ve said it before … and I’m saying it again … I do love-love-love your style of writing. Always, always right on target! Plus you always manage to say exactly what most of us are thinking.

    Have you noticed? It’s getting to be like opening a surprise package to read the news each morning.
