Trump's Latest Nightmare

"He is so full of shit."
Pompeo to Bolton on Trump
Don't get me wrong: I am still of the belief that John Bolton is a dangerous dingbat and, whether he was fired by Trump or whether he quit, we're all better off for the fact that he is no longer in government. Here's another reason (of scores of them) to hold Bolton in nothing but utter contempt: during the House Impeachment Inquiry late last year, he refused to testify when called upon to do so. He had a two million dollar book deal in the works and he intended to save all of the juicy tidbits for that. Had he testified then, the public outcry over his revelations would have been so loud that the senate would have been forced to remove the fucking psychopath from office, and the country might have been spared of one more year of a president that Bolton knows full well is incompetent and a danger to his country. Of this we may be of no doubt whatsoever: John Bolton is no patriot.
But I guess we can also be thankful for the fact that, at the very least, John Bolton is an honest dangerous dingbat. Silver linings, you know.
At this moment, Team Trump is scrambling to prevent his tome from seeing the light of day. The fact is that it has already gotten into the hands of the New York Times and the Washington Post. Two nights ago, Stephen Colbert giddily waved a copy of it in front of his television audience. If Trump seriously believes that this publication will never see the light of day, he is more delusional than even I suspected - and I suspected an awful lot!

Open the door for your mystery date.
The United States Constitution willing, I shall be picking up a copy of "The Room Where It Happened" later on this week. Among the other delights that are being revealed are the facts that der Donald was under the illusion that Finland was part of Russia; or that England was not a nuclear power; or that Trump sought the influence of the Chinese government in order to increase his chances at being reelected in November. The basic message of the book is that Donald John Trump is an incompetent imbecile who has no business living in the Executive Mansion. This is not a classified, state secret that they are preventing from becoming public. As I said on this site five years ago, these facts are common  knowledge. HELLO???

Seven months and three days to go before this nightmare is behind us....God willing. Did you ever dream that this country would fall as low as it has? I never did. Twenty years ago I believed that America had reached rock bottom when it stupidly elected George W. Bush. He's starting to look like Abraham Lincoln when placed in juxtaposition with Donald J. Trump. My youngest brother Jeff has just announced that if this moron is reelected he is going to apply for French citizenship. There was a time, not so very long ago, when this knowledge would have depressed me. Now I'm wondering what the hell took him so long. Can you blame him?

Brace yourselves for the next chapter in this ongoing shit show. The next seven months are going to be like no other in American history. Tell your kids to pay close attention, too. There are lessons numerous that they will be able to pass down to their heirs.

This is a milestone day in American history. Jean Kennedy Smith, the last surviving offspring of Joseph P. and Rose Kennedy, passed away last night in her Manhattan apartment. In the 1938 photograph below, she can be seen sitting second from the left. Do you want to talk about the end of an era? Take a number. There is one heck of an Irish wake happening tonight. I wish I were there.

Apparently, if we, the United States, would have paid John Bolton millions, like he expects to get for his book now, he would have done the right thing for the people, for the nation, and testified in Congress in and for the impeachment trial last year.

Thanks, Mr. Bolton.
Thanks, Republicans.
