The return of Kenneth Starr

So let me get this straight.

Trump has hired Ken Starr — the man who tried to convince us all that a consensual blow job was grounds for removing a President from office — to try to convince us all that there’s nothing Trump has done that warrants removal.

Good luck with that, Ken.

What innocent people do

When I have a client who is innocent, here’s my strategy:

Refuse to produce documents proving his innocence;

Refuse to have witnesses who can prove the innocence come forward and testify;

Refuse to testify under oath to prove innocence;

Insult the judges who will be deciding, while bribing the rest;

Write long, insulting letters accusing the prosecutor of random, made up crimes;

Whine about it constantly to anyone who will listen.

I mean, what more do they need? Clearly, a guilty person would not do all that.

Name one thing Trump has done that is counter to Putin’s desires

I dare anyone to find one thing Trump has done that isn’t in Russian’s interest.
 
Get out of Turkey? Done.
 
Allow Erdogan to buy missiles from Russia? Okay
 
Try to always make Ukraine the bad guy? Yep.
 
Allow Russia to build bases in Cuba? No problem.
 
Look the other way when Russian dissidents go missing or are killed? Of course.
 
Never ever say one bad word about Putin? You got it.
 
Allow Russia to take over airbases in Syria once we abandon them? Easy peasy.
 
Try to get us out of NATO? Working on it.
 
Get the US out of international treaties? Yep, most of them.
 
Can’t think of one foreign policy decision Trump has made that in any way is counter to what Russia wants. Can you?
 

Trump’s Diary

Dear Diary,

I hate this job. I never thought they’d give it to me in the first place. I mean, I just asked for it because I love the attention and thought it would help business bigly. And then I won. You should have seen Melania’s face. I thought she’d hit me.

So I’ve been trying to get out of it somehow. If I resigned they’d all call me a loser so I can’t do that, so I need them to impeach me.Trump_Mueller_QuestionsIf they do that, I can say it was a witch hunt and that way it’s not my fault. I can keep on having big rallies, the biggest ever, the biggest the country has ever seen, and I won’t have to deal with stupid people telling me all the time what I can’t do.

So I keep doing stuff to get me impeached but they just won’t do it. I mean, come on, I’ve broken how many laws already? And then I admit it publicly and brag about it?

Just yesterday I announced we’d have the G7 meeting at one of my hotels which is not only illegal but clearly against the Constitution, too.

What more do I gotta do?

Anyway, gotta go. Haven’t tweeted in fifteen minutes.

One thing we can be sure of with Trump’s motives regarding the Kurds

There are a lot of theories out there about why Trump decided to betray our allies the Kurds. Among them:

  • He has Trump Towers in Turkey and he wants to keep the Turkish government happy so nothing happens to his investment
  • He likes the dictator who currently runs Turkey, who is his kind of guy
  • Putin wanted him to do this and he does anything Putin wants

The one theory to explain why he did this that we know is not true? “He did this because he was acting in the best interests of the United States.”

Being the stable genius that he is, he explained his actions thusly (artist’s recreation):

If you don’t vote for the Democrat, your vote is for Trump

Look.

For the next election, you’re either voting for the Democrat or you’re voting for Trump. There is no “third choice.” Any other candidate you waste your vote on helps Trump.

Yes, you want to make a point. Yes, if we got rid of the Electoral College and had ranked voting, your third party choice might have a chance. But for now, we have to play with the rules we are given, and if you waste your vote on a third party candidate, you may as well have given your vote to Trump.

If you want to stop Trump, the best possible way to do it is to vote for the only other candidate who can beat him, and that’s the Democrat. If you are voting 3rd party from either side (even as a Republican protesting Trump), you’re not doing that.

These third party votes can lose you an election.

Look at it this way:

When you vote third party instead of Democrat, yes, that’s a vote Trump doesn’t get. But it’s not a vote the Democrat gets.

Here in Pennsylvania in 2016, Trump won by 44,292‬ votes.  49,941 people here voted for Jill Stein.  I’m not saying all of those Stein votes would have gone to Trump, but none of them stopped him.

If a thousand people upset with Trump vote 3rd party as a protest and then the Democrat loses the state by 999 votes to Trump, then what’s the point? Where’s the protest there?  What good did that “protest vote” do?

If you’re not doing everything you can to stop Trump, you’re helping him. If you’re not voting for the only possible choice who can beat Trump, then you might as well vote for Trump, because that’s where you’ll end up anyway.

Come see the violence inherent in the system

Trump, who thinks he is a little dictator, today tweeted that all companies are “hereby ordered” to blah blah blah, as if he was giving a Royal Decree  and his will could not be challenged.

“Order, eh?  Who does he think he is.”

“Why, I’m your king!”

“Well, I didn’t vote for you…”
