Here’s where I think we are In The Matter of Donald J. Trump. One. Impeachment is not possible…now. Trump’s job approval rating, as of this writing, is 39%. That is historically LOW for a President at this stage of his presidency but it’s too HIGH for impeachment. When Richard Nixon resigned in August of 1974,
TRUMP: WHERE ARE WE AT?
Steve Bannon has a problem. He’s in a tribal fight against the toughest, most effective political tribe in the country, the American Jewish Community, and Bannon’s tribe, Irish Catholics, disbanded 40 years ago. They don’t wear their brass knuckles anymore and they only meet on St. Patrick’s Day. We’re not cohesive and we don’t support
As of today, Donald Trump has been our President for 68 days. If he makes it through an entire four year term, we’ve got him for 1,393 more days. How does that make you feel? Does that put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step? Does that give you the feeling
TRUMP: STILL GETTING AWAY WITH IT
Getting away with what? The over-the-top lie to divert attention from a prior over-the-top lie and screw up that is exposing him for what he is … a real and present danger to the USA and the World. Compare Trump with his predecessor, Barack Obama. OBAMA has said in various interviews that he viewed his
MEMO TO TRUMP: CALL JIM BAKER NOW!
You have no “Administration”. You have a cluster of belligerent, incompetent liars (Conway, Spicer, Stephen Miller) going on TV contradicting each other and embarrassing the country. You are presiding over the worst roll out of a new administration in American history. It’s a farce. More importantly, it’s dangerous. At the rate you’re going, you’ll be
TRUMP … PLUS LONG KNIVES OUT FOR BANNON
I guess I should say something about the election. Everyone else has. So, in no particular order: Trump spoke FOR his people. Hillary spoke TO hers. If you read a transcript of the three debates, Hillary won them all. Watching them, Trump survived. He lived to fight another day. He let his people know he
THE CLINTONS AGAIN: BETTER THAN POKING YOURSELF IN THE EYE WITH A SHARP STICK … BUT NOT BY MUCH
The Clintons are coming again. Like a couple of huge Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloons. They’ve been around forever. They’re totally familiar, clever opportunists … ambitious, greedy, unprincipled, and lacking a quarter ounce of political courage. They’re also inevitable. They’ve accumulated $100 million without either one of them having other than a government job for
STILL CAN’T HATE TRUMP
A while back, I said I can’t hate Trump. Still can’t. On Hillary, I’m having a hard time getting to where Barack Obama got with Hillary back in 2008. Remember, that is when he said to her at a debate in NH … “You’re likable enough, Hillary.” In my opinion, Obama exaggerated. But, he’s a
HILLARY FEELING IT
I had a story title before the debate started … Mrs. Know It All Schooled By The Class Clown. That would have been a fun story to write. Especially for someone who has been amused by Trump and very reluctantly supportive of Clinton. Someone like me, for instance. But then they actually had the debate.
HILLARY AND TRUMP RACE TO THE BOTTOM
I was going to compare the Presidential race to a mud wrestling match, but that would be unfair to mud wrestlers, most of whom are solid citizens. So, I’ll have to defer to conservative commentator Chucky Krauthammer, who called it a “race to the bottom with the one finishing second winning”. Think about that. Last
