Day after day he keeps grinding away. The Russian stooge in the oval office is now talking about dropping out of the Paris climate deal, making the once great United States one of only three nations rejecting the agreement to do something rational about climate change. The other two would be Syria and Nicaragua, proving once again that the Donald knows nothing about being judged by the company he keeps. Or he is forcing us to keep.
The big orange boob is also talking about once again slamming the door on Cuba, even though it is even now only partially open. Why make the world a safer place when you can crank up decade’s old hatreds and tensions? Why does Trump seem to feed off of chaos, confusion and conflict? Is it because his daddy wouldn’t let him have a puppy?
That would be and should be enough for one day, but the man who would be king is also blubbering about letting a nest of Russian spies return to the country. Remember the spies? The bunch who were operating out of one location in New York and another in a big house on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, before President Obama kicked them out of the country after warning Putin to stop attacking America’s cyber-infrastructure? Remember any of that?
Donald Trump, in his ongoing “Russia can do no wrong” campaign, is talking about letting them back in. Russian spies. And why not? These could be some of the same guys who are advising Trump on how to use phrases like “witch hunt” when attempting to deflect the truth about the influence Russia holds over his tiny mind. The same Russian operatives who left no fingerprints when they saw to it that Trump was surrounded by advisers who were and may remain in contact with their Russian handlers.
All of it is so very clever, targeting a country, a former democracy, that is ultra-sensitive to the call of a “witch hunt” following the horrible experience with Joe McCarthy in the 50’s and his right-hand-man and attorney Roy Cohn. A closeted gay man who prosecuted other gays. He also is said to have been Donald Trump’s mentor, the guy who taught him all those nasty tricks he used to get elected. So maybe it’s not the Russians at all. Maybe they just fell into a good thing, with a candidate who had been groomed to be their “useful idiot.” Their stooge in the White House.
And so Donald has been surrounded by advisers with known ties to the Russians as he talks about letting Russian spies back into the country while the Democrats are calling for Jared Kushner to lose his top secret security clearance.
They shouldn’t just be “calling” for it, it should be a demand, and they should be taking it over the heads of the Administration and his Republican wonk supporters in the House and Senate. They should be taking it directly to the American people. The majority out there who don’t support Donald Trump and fear for the future of the nation.
To what degree have the Trumps and Kushners been dependent upon Russian money keeping their business interests afloat over the years? To what degree are they in no position to say no to the Russians now?
Each day you think it can’t get any worse. And then it does, leaving some of us with a hollow feeling in our stomachs from the thought that treason may be afoot in the land but nobody is willing to talk about it much less put a stop to it?
No, dear friends, the talk, on the other hand, is about letting the Russian spies back in. Imagine that. Can’t be happening. Not here.
