Ever delusional, our very own Caesar Disgustus reportedly emerged from the Helsinki summit proud of himself. Immediately taking to tRUMP State News—otherwise known as Fox or Fixed News—he began to crow about his accomplishments.
However once aboard Air Force One he began watching the reviews being broadcast from America where even major figures on his beloved “Fox” were either standing in complete bewilderment or roundly condemning his behavior. All, except notably the idiots in residence Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Lou Dobbs. Otherwise the reception ranged, like the reaction of Washington, from icy silence to howling outrage.
Chief of staff John F. Kelly, with his ears much closer to the political wind, openly communicated with leaders of the Rescumlican Party that they needed to feel free to launch into a critique. Kelly, bringing in the president of Vice Mike Pence along with Defense Secretary Pompeo arranged for the two Mikes to sit down and patiently explain to the child 'president' that he had indeed shit his pants on the world stage. What followed as the production of a terse, carefully worded statement.
Looking for all the world like a kidnapped hostage reading the note of his captors tRUMP sat before the cameras and tried to explain it all away saying that he had simply misspoke meaning to say that he didn't see any reason why the Russians wouldn't have hacked the election instead of why they would have. It doesn't wash. The spectacle, if it weren't so serious, would be seen as a national joke, a parody, a farce. Then, after a Freudian slip in which he said “I don't see any reason why I wouldn't” before correcting himself to say the Russians, he went immediately off the rails. Saying that he accepted completely the findings of the intelligence community regarding the Russian assault upon our elections he then ad-libbed “it could have been somebody else too, there are a lot of people”, immediately in the same sentence once again undercutting the veracity of our intelligence services as well as the honesty of his acceptance.
Additionally, after agreeing with his staff on the statement, Disgustus not only added with 'magic marker' a reference that there had been no collusion with the Russians, but scratched out a line saying that anyone involved in the Russian effort would be brought to justice.
Here we have in graphic detail not only tRUMP's complicity but a demonstrated intent to negate any reference to any attempts to get to the bottom of all this and hold those responsible to account. By scratching out a call to bring those responsible before the law, he demonstrates for all to see his nefarious intent.
It is indeed a sad day for this country and the rage continues. Crowds outside the White House chanting “Welcome Home Traitor”, former Republican operatives, office holders and strategists from former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough to John McCain's presidential campaign manager in open revulsion. Indeed, Steve Schmidt openly called for Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to immediately step down and said there should be massive resignations in this White House in the wake of this debacle. Self respect demands it.
Indeed it does. Much has been made of the need felt by some in this administration to stay on in order to keep the 'child' president in the sandbox. But to what avail? Reports have surfaced that the staff prepared a 100 page brief for the idiot-in-chief prior to this meeting with Putin. The report, by all accounts, went unread. Instead tRUMP was up in Scotland golfing at one of his Russian financed resorts, plugging his real estate venture playing golf before cameras when he wasn't insulting our allies.
Yes, it is long past time for mass resignations. Public and loudly critical resignations. The country needs to see first hand how ignorant, incompetent, and venal is the man currently stinking up the people's mansion.
“'An Br'er Putin, he jus' laugh and laugh”
Impeach and Imprison.
