191 criminal charges. 100’s interviewed. 100 tapes recovered from Cohen. 40 days in jail for Manafort. 35 defendants. 30 days in prison for van der Zwaan. 5 guilty pleas. 1 Russian spy in custody. 1 Putin puppet. 0 witch hunts.
Our “stable genius” might know lots of words, even the best words, as he is fond of telling us. But what he blatantly doesn’t know is the definition of meaning of most of them. As this tweet of Scott Dworkin illustrates, there are no witch hunts. The proper term for what is happening is called the rule of law.
The real reason Trump yells “fake news” and constantly denigrates the press is that the press refuses to allow his lies, his racism, his ignorance and his sexual misconduct to be ignored. The press continues to show the real Trump to the world.
Trump flees from the press like a roach flees from the light, and for the exact same reason. Once decent folks see the ugly reality that is Trump they want to spray insecticide to rid their surroundings of such a loathsome creature.
The only time Trump isn’t lying is when his mouth is shut. Yet the Republicans in Congress still blindly support and protect him. They are complicit in his crimes and deserve the same punishment he will receive.
