Newscasters at roundtable discussions, (behind closed doors and far away from television cameras) are discussing whether Donald Trump should be removed from office and sent permanently to Mar-a-Lago.
While emergencies come and go, Donald Trump is a permanent national emergency! The guy is systematically destroying the prestige of the nation, the White House, Air Force One, battling with allies, tearing apart alliances, but taking a full knee-squat before all adversaries of the US, particularly Vladimir Putin.
Would any airline keep a pilot who flew passenger planes in loop-the-loop circles?
The pilot’s defense would be: “I always fly straight. Rumors that I was flying loop-the-loops is all fake news. The Blue Angels say I’m the greatest pilot ever. I've heard from many ex-passengers who agree my flights are the best. Even retired members of the Luftwaffe salute my flying skills. And those Luftwaffe pilots are good people.”
An airline pilot making loop-the-loops would be fired immediately.
But the loop-the-loop president stays in office. The impeachment process could take as long as two years with Trump barring the gates and pardoning all of Mueller’s indicted witnesses. The 25th Amendment would also be a dragged-out battle. Meanwhile, Trump is ignoring reports from US intelligence agencies.
“I go with my gut.” Though his gut is most likely extensive, (hidden under the overcoat), it is also near its exit.
The cabinet and the Senate Republicans are presently wringing their collective hands, looking the other way, paralyzed with fear of Trump’s loop-the-loop tweets and his 35%. They dismiss the threat of airplanes falling from the sky, and allow children to be taken from parents, and put into cages. Their behavior is immoral.
Presently, the loop-the-loop president threatens a second government shutdown. Joe Scarborough on Morning Joe suggested: It’s like Coke adding cat piss in the second attempt at producing New Coke.
Maybe Trump wants to be fired? He's doing everything in his power to be removed from office, an office he never planned to win, didn’t want, but the Russians pulled a fast one on him.
Now he’s in like Flynn and can't get out.
