There was no Squid Pro Quo


“False stories are being reported that a few Republican Senators are saying that President Trump may have done a quid pro quo, but it doesn’t matter, there is nothing wrong with that, it is not an impeachable event. Perhaps so, but read the transcript, there is no quid pro quo!” – Donald Trump 11-3-19

So what have we heard for the last month? It was the perfect call. I have provided an exact, word for word transcript. The Democrats are conducting a secret witch-hunt. And there was no quid pro quo. But just as we knew would happen, this house of cards of lies is crumbling as fast as Trump and the Republicans can stack them back-up.

Sir Dumb ass’s tweet above makes little to no sense except to prime the pump of what the next line of defense will be. Basically this, there is nothing impeachable about a quid pro quo. We do it all the time. Or as acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney so eloquently summed it up “Get over it”.

Me, I think they should mount the Squid Pro Quo defense. Can’t you just hear Lindsay Graham saying; “There was no Squid Pro Quo. That would be wrong and inhumane. But that is not what President Trump did, clearly what he did was a quid pro quo and there is nothing wrong with that. No Squids were harmed by the President.”

Look it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see this whole deal stinks but you and I know when it comes to Trump’s Fox News loving base rocket scientist is not a term often used to describe their intellectual prowess. Sane rational people realize that if, and that is a big ass IF, IF it was the perfect call why lock it down in a double top secret vault? IF it was the perfect call why not release the exact, word for word transcript rather than the one Trump released that clearly states, “not a verbatim transcript of a discussion”? For you Trump loving “rocket scientist” out there: ver·ba·timin exactly the same words as were used originally. IF it was the perfect call why not allow all of your administration involved in the perfect call to come talk to Congress and tell them for themselves just how perfect it was?

Do you know the answers to all of these IF’s? Yea, I do too and it starts with it wasn’t the perfect call after all. In fact it was a call that scared the shit out of a lot of Trump’s people except Señor Dumb ass. Even former national security adviser John Bolton was so disturbed by the call that he compared it to “drug deal”. So what’s your definition of perfect?

This thing is going to get away from the Republicans, fast. All the Hannity and Deep State shit will only get them so far. My guess is the GOP is thinking that they are “gonna need a bigger boat”. Have you ordered more popcorn yet?

  2. My friend, unless the Dems focus on a candidate other then Warren, Sanders or Biden, we are in for a long, very long decade…..and deservedly so. Our country (government) needs to be turned over to the young people who have clearer vision than the old, white, senile farts. 😎

    • Here is what my kids are telling me, they want Rump out but who can beat him? They are concerned that they won’t have any choice but to vote for Warren, Sanders or Biden. We will see how it plays out. Remember, Obama came out of know where to win.

        As several have predicted, Biden will most likely be the one to go up against orange-face.


        IMO, there are simply too many voters who don’t want to “think about it” so when it comes time to vote, they’ll simply go with the party candidate.

        Yes, young people are starting to get more interested in who runs the country — and how — but regrettably I don’t think they’ve reached the point where their influence will dictate 2020 election results. Then again … as you reminded us … Obama.

  4. I just returned from trip to the drug store. Met up with a long-time acquaintance, a rabid pro-trumper, a born-again Christian, an old white man about to turn 80 years old. Smugly he informed me how well the economy was doing, how the world was once again respecting us, how the Dems need to come up with a viable candidate to make this once again a strong 2 party system. Unfortunately he and his compadres comprise most of the voter base in my county. I see red and I want to puke.
