It seems as though Rudy Giuliani is morphing into the Dustin Hoffman character from the film Wag The Dog. And while on the subject of movies, Donald Trump is tweeting himself into a petty, mean spirited, revengeful Forrest Gump.
The Hoffman character, in Wag The Dog, kept insisting that he wanted recognition for his involvement in a successful presidential coverup, a coverup that easily won the president’s reelection. He continued to demand public recognition and respect until Robert de Nero, who performs as a presidential operative, finally gives a reluctant nod to the secret service agent across the room. It does not end well for the Hoffman character in Wag The Dog.
Using a current overused metaphor, the Hoffman character went sort of over his skis.
However, Giuliani isn’t just over his skis; he’s creating his own snow-covered hillside, Tyrolean mountain-top village, is traveling by plane all over the world, hunting for conspiracies and witnesses to help prop up Donald Trump’s 2020 election.
At every waiting microphone, Giuliani schusses straight over his skis, to grab the mike and happily announce that he almost has his investigation all wrapped up. Just about finished. Will soon to reveal everything. Any minute now. Maybe even tonight.
“Russia and Putin were innocent parties in the 2016 election. It was Ukraine and Hunter Biden who flipped votes for the 2016 election.”
What? Does that mean his boss Donald Trump did not win the 2016 election? Did Hillary Clinton win, and should she be the president? Will Obama’s former Attorney General have to step in and revoke all of Trump’s judicial appointments?
It sounds like an announcement Trump just may not want to hear.
“But boss, I cleared Putin and Russia.”
While Trump sounds more and more like Forrest Gump, talking about flushing toilets, dishwashers, and windmills, another possible article on impeachment just landed on the presidential doorstep.
When Trump paid hush money to the porn star and Playboy bunny two days before the 2016 election, that payment was a criminal act and an election law violation.
Donald J. Trump committed a felony.
