Oh great. I now fully expect people to start posting scenes from Lethal Weapon 2, but with Trump's face plastered over Joss Ackland's, and with the cry of "Diplomatic Immunity!" replaced with "Executive Privilege!"
I can hear the denials already "But he learned from all that and he's a good businessman now", "Financial records say whatever analysts want them to say, he probably made money, and the NYT just made it look like he lost in order to have a story", "He made the economy good right now, and that's what matters", "His taxes are fake, because he lied about how much money he had in order to not pay taxes, like any good American does, he's a hero for not funding the government." Etc. Etc. Etc.
Trump has declared a National Emergency and issued an executive order prohibiting any US company from using equipment "...made by firms posing a national security risk" (i.e., Huawei). So the rift with China continues to deepen.
Sheesh. Where's Nixon when you need him?
There is a distinct lack of committee forming going on, should I be concerned? I'm strongly considering sending out a memo to suggest that a committee be formed to investigate if committees are needed for these investigations.
Apparently the talking point on conservative radio is "This is too expensive. All these poor people being called to testify have to pay so much money for lawyers, it's unfair."
1. Golly, it's almost like legal system is broken, and unfairly favors people with money. If only someone had pointed that out before now.
2. Maybe the President should have skipped some of his golf outings, since money is so tight.
3. If only there were some plan to get more money for the government. Some convenient group of people with vastly more money than the rest, and whom can afford to bear the brunt of the financial burden of the country.
4. Are we really putting a price tag on the truth, now? Whoops, guess lies are cheaper, we'll have to go with those.
