Today, Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, took it upon himself to make the admission that: Yes, the United States of America told Ukraine that military aid would be withheld (to fight a threatened invasion by Russia) unless Ukraine found ‘dirt’ on Trump’s presidential opponent Joe Biden or son Hunter Biden.
“Sure, it was a 'quid pro quo' deal. So what! Get over it!” he managed through his cute granny glasses. Tough lingo for someone wearing cute granny glasses.
Once again, US foreign policy, under Donald Trump, continued to break new boundaries in its downward spiral, destroying the reputation and the decency of the United States of America.
Hang on; the Trump White House will dive again even lower. A few minutes after his Get over it! statement, (probably following a horsewhipping by Jerrod Kushner) Mulvaney tried to walk back his admission of ‘a quid pro quo’ by blaming the press and the cameras for accurately reporting and filming what he said. Right.
On his second time around, Mulvaney’s granny glasses looked a little twisted.
“Mexico is sending their rapists, murderers, and drug dealers…” Get over it!
“You can grab them by the pussy.” Get over it.
“I have the greatest respect for women.” Get over it.
“There were good people on both sides.” Get over it.
“The Kurds aren’t angels.” Get over it.
And to paraphrase his most recent: “The fight between the Kurds and the Turks is just like a schoolyard fight between two boys. You gotta let them fight for a while, and then pull them apart.” Get over it.
“The Turks are just going to clean up the border.” Get over it. Cleaning up the border translates to genocide.
Getting over Trump and his army of sycophants in the White House, Senate, and the House of Representatives may take more than a cargo shipment of Tums, for the impending indictments and impeachment. It may require the repetition of a Nuremberg trial with all of the sycophants sitting in the docket along with their boss.
Advice to future docket members: Get over it.
