Trump Doesn't Even Realize It's Over

Trump Doesn't Even Realize It's Over

By Dennis Loo (7/13/17)

Trump and his closest advisers are so dumb that they will have to be escorted out of the White House by guards because they won't get it that they've been ousted, even when it's official. "Wait," you can almost hear Trump say, "I was elected. Did you see the big crowds at my inauguration?"

The jig is already up, only they don't realize it yet. 

Let me use an analogy:

Monty Python's black knight encounters King Arthur of Camelot and won't let him by. The king is forced to fight the black knight, cutting off each of his arms, first the left, then the right, and then both legs in succession, but the black knight keeps on fighting despite this, calling them all flesh wounds, even though he has lost his limbs and is spurting blood all over the place. The black knight is Trump. 


If it's possible, Donald Jr. is even dumber than his dad. Except that I didn't think it's possible to be stupider than Donald Sr.

The anti-intellectual streak in American culture, where Donald Jr. gets a softball interview with Sean Hannity, and still admits that he may have met with other Russians (!) is like a serial murderer planting a big sign in his backyard saying "DON'T LOOK HERE FOR DEAD BODIES!" It's like Donald Sr. saying to Netanyahu when visiting the Israelis - before the cameras - that he didn't tell the Russians it was the Israelis that gave him the information about laptops on airplanes. Wait, he did that!

None of the rules such as ethics rules or the emoluments clause or the separation of powers rule or not picking fights with the mother of a slain soldier all assume that when you get caught red-handed that you have enough sense to own up to it, and not act as if facts don't matter. This Trump crowd is another thing altogether. Anti-intellectualism has met its nadir in Trump.

This is akin to Trump's statements during the campaign that beginning with his first day as POTUS, conflict between black and brown people and the cops WILL END (because the police will get their way totally) and he has a secret plan (which is still to be revealed) to get rid of ISIS. As if things are so simple, and resistance did not exist. Apparently, in Trumpville, resistance is a foreign concept, not the way of the world.

NBC is now reporting that there was another Russian, a person suspected of and probably involved in counter-intelligence, at this "fruitless" meeting with Donald Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort. 

So, according to POTUS, most people would consort with and buddy up with adversary nations against domestic opponents. Sure, Donald.

We await the next shocking revelation that will top what has already been revealed. We won't wait long. Pure shame won't drive these people from office. The GOP has already proved itself a "nothing burger." First, they were saying no evidence has been revealed and now that indisputable evidence is provided, they say it does not matter. The actions of the people must be brought to bear.
