President Trump, America's overwhelming choice to design and implement the nation's future, has encountered problems requiring him to hire a lawyer to speak on his behalf. This unexpected glitch has been handled professionally and eagerly by the White House staff who are said to "love the man" and are pleased to have the chance to lick his boots, as this Washington Post article by Chris Cillizza indicates. (remember my article is satire.) The writer actually reveals a dystopic White House work environment and does it very well.
The President and some of the President's men are now being investigated by Federal law enforcement for possible illegal activities. The investigation is of serious proportions if this New York Times article by Michael D. Shear and Charlie Savage dated June16, 2017 is anywhere near correct. After reading the report The memory of my old dog one hot summer day chasing his tail in frustration and biting fleas came back to me. It remains to be seen if the President can get it together again. Right now it does not look as if he can pull it off.
This change in the political weather has got to make him antsy. He's not used to this kind of response to his attempts at making America great. It's got to be getting under his skin. I wonder how he's sleeping these nights. All this negative "Fake" press has to get his dander up.
He probably asks himself why Americans take the allegations of misconduct so seriously. His alleged model of public service is time honored, having its roots in Tammany Hall. After all, he signed that pipeline deal and he pissed off our European allies and generally made the people of the world feel sorry for the average American that finds himself or herself sick and tired and with little hope in the foreseeable future locked into Trumpdom and waiting for the second shoe to drop.
Americans are all too accustomed to being screwed by their politicians. But the Trump Administration had taken the screwing to a much higher level. There is some thought the Trump Administration has finally gotten the attention of those it is screwing and that a positive change is likely to come about after the courts see to it the trash is removed.
Those people who have finally caught on are glad to see the President squirm. Thankfully the conclusion has been reached that legal proceedings are the only honorable way to clear the suspicion that the Trump Administration has floated over the nation and the world like an ominous threatening storm cloud.
So what will become of the Trump Administration whose top officials now need lawyers to speak on their behalf? It's not often such enormous scandals have to be dealt with. But the Trump Administration was 'special' from the get go. If Trump has a scandal it is going to be bigger and greater than any other political scandal you can be sure of that. It may be time to stock up on popcorn and beer: the legal proceedings could be long winded. I know several who are already planning Impeachment Parties, none of them to be held at a Trump Resort.
How will it all turn out? No one knows. It's hard to imagine how bad it can and will become if the courts are unsuccessful. It's terribly bad now and Trump's objectives will make the future unbearable for many if not all of us who already live at the bottom of the barrel and wonder if they will have enough to eat before the first of the month rolls around.
To this day it astonishes me how the politically abused American citizen could have fallen for the P.T. Barnum of American politics.
Maybe next time it will be different.
