The Washington Post has compiled a synopsis of the current tsunami in the Trumpocalypse, focusing on both the lack of political skill and common sense behind the firing of Comey.
“Trumpzilla has surrounded himself with sycophants and amateurs who are either unwilling or unable to tell him no. Without such a person, Trump just walked headlong into a political buzz saw.”
The firing is being seen within the Beltway as less of a strategic move and more as a knee jerk reaction from a petulant man child.
“According to Politico, Trumpzilla had grown enraged by the Russia investigation, frustrated by his inability to control the mushrooming narrative around the probe. He repeatedly asked aides why the Russia investigation wouldn’t disappear and demanded they speak out for him. He would sometimes scream at television clips about the probe, one adviser said.”
This is exactly what we need. Even if Trumpzilla avoids a special prosecutor and can’t be removed, he is politically hamstrung. Little or none of his racist, misogynistic, elitist agenda can move forward when his press secretary is hiding in the bushes, conservatives are coming out against him from all sides, and Republicans in Congress are worried about their seats in 2018.
Persist and Resist, ladies and gentlemen.
