Things That Go Trump in the Night


It's outrageous and amazing that Donald Trump is only now - as a former United States president - facing felony charges for crimes committed that he has skillfully avoided all of his adult life. It's common sense that the old bugger's luck was destined to run our sooner or later; we can only surmise that this is going to end catastrophically for POTUS #45. As I write these words, his lawyers are abandoning him like diseased rats from a sinking garbage barge. I imagine that serving a client who won't keep his mouth shut would be a nightmare for any self-respecting attorney. Trump has been stumbling around the republic with one foot in his mouth and the other on a banana peel. He has incriminated himself so many times that most of us have lost count of the gaffes. And yet....and yet....he is the favorite to get the GOP nomination next year. If that doesn't beat everything, nothing will. 

the only strategy Team Trump has in their moldy bag of tricks to save the man from an extremely long prison sentence is to plead insanity on behalf of their client. A good case can be made for this. Let's face it, folks: It's been embarrassingly obvious to those of use paying attention these last forty years that Donald J. Trump is as crazy as an army of rancid bats on an LSD binge. If Trump goes to trial as a sane man, it is only likely that he will do some serious time - not that I would ever lose a minute of sleep if that were to happen, mind you - I'm just putting it out there.

What I don't understand is why the most serious charge against him is the fact that he stashed a bunch of classified documents at his overrated bawdy house in Florida. Call me naive if you want, but it would seem to me that inciting a violent insurrection that left four people dead would be a heavy duty charge to overcome. I can only conclude is that the Feds have evidence that he has sold those secrets (at a pretty hefty price) to powers hostile to the good ol' U.S. of A. I wouldn't put it past the hideous old bastard. He's despicable. The moment he announced his candidacy in June of 2015, I wrote on this site that he wouldn't even get the nomination simply because not even the Republicans are that dumb. Once he finally got the nomination, I predicted that he would never with the presidency simply because the American electorate aren't that naive. I've never been more wrong in my life. Bitter experience should have taught me to know better. That is the reason I'm not dismissing outright a Trump or DeSantis victory on Election Day next year. I've learned my lesson.

Show me a man who is overtly and militantly anti-gay, and I’ll show you a closet homosexual who is covertly overcompensating his “manliness” by drawing attention away from his secret desires. It is my strong belief that Ron DeSantis is a dandy case in point. Here is Randy Rainbow’s take on Ronnie D. This one is a keeper for the ages.

The man is a national treasure (Randy Rainbow, that is. Not Ron DeSantis).

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) admonished “The View” on Monday over what he described as “dangerous, offensive, and disgusting” messages airing on the show about success among black people being the “exception and not the rule.”

During an appearance on ABC talk show, Scott — who recently announced his candidacy for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination — was asked by co-host Sunny Hostin to explain his claim that he doesn’t believe in “systemic racism” as she pressed him to then to define “systemic racism.”

“Let me answer the question that you’ve asked,” Scott said.

“One of the reasons why I’m on the show is because of the comments that were made frankly on this show that the only way for a young African American kid to be successful in this country is to be the exception and not the rule,” Scott said.

“That is a dangerous, offensive, disgusting message to send to our young people today, that the only way to succeed is by being the exception,” he added.

Hostin interjected and said, “It is. It’s been 114 years,” before Scott disagreed.

Senator Tim Scott to the hosts of The View:

"I’m on the show because of the comments made frankly on this show…the only way for a young African American kid to be successful in this country is to be the exception…? That is a dangerous, offensive, disgusting message…"

“So, the fact of the matter is we’ve had an African American president, African American vice president, we’ve had two African Americans to be secretaries of the state,” Scott said. “In my home city, the police chief is an African American who’s now running for mayor. The head of the highway patrol for South Carolina is an African American.”

“In 1975, there was about 15% unemployment in the African American community. For the first time in history of the country, it’s under 5%,” he added.

Hostin interrupted Scott once again and claimed that all the examples he provided were “still exceptions.” She cited statistics in recent years showing African Americans, who make up 13% of the general population in the United States, accounting for 40% of the homeless population.

“You asked the question,” Scott replied. “I’ve watched you on the show. You like people to be deferential and respectful. So, here’s what I am going to suggest … progress in America is palpable. It can be measured in generations. I look back at the fact that my grandfather, born in 1921 in Salley, South Carolina, when he was on a sidewalk, a white person was coming, he had to step off and not make eye contact.”

“That man believed then, with some doubt now, in the goodness of America, because he believed that faith in God, faith in himself, and faith in what the future could hold for his kids, would unleash opportunities in ways that you cannot imagine,” he added.

“Every kid today can look. Just change the stations and see how much progress has been made in this country,” Scott continued. “ABC, NBC, CBS, ESPN, CNN, Fox News all have African-American and Hispanic hosts. So what I’m suggesting is that yesterday’s exception is today’s rule.”

I hope Tim Scott is the gop nominee to run against President Biden.
