I hear Sinatra…
And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
Picture if you will, Donald Trump throwing an entire pot of boiling water, pasta, and dash of salt, at a wall. He does this not to see what sticks, but in hopes the noise will keep you from assimilating the fact that we have a big mess to clean up.
My friend, I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain
Is Donald Trump creating a constitutional crisis in order to boost the ratings of his State of the Union Address?
Regrets, I’ve had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I wouldn’t put it past him, however, I believe what we are watching is Trump panicking, feeling the heat from that pot, and he’s in emergency mode.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption
I can make out three events through the rising steam—
- Andrew McCabe, FBI deputy director, stepped down amid Trump abuse and Republican criticism. He was forced out.
Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
That was big, but then…
- News breaks— The GOP House Intelligence Committee vote to release contentious “secret memorandum” written by a Devin Nunes. The author is a clue that it is a work of fiction. This vote has been called “extraordinarily reckless” by the Justice Department. The memo criticizes Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and Trump needs an excuse to fire Rod Rosenstein so he can appoint someone who is willing to fire Special Council Robert S(Subpoena) Mueller. The memo also accuses the the F.B.I. of “misusing their authority to obtain a secret surveillance order on a former Trump campaign associate.” Yes, Nunes is still selling the same story, intending to discredit the FBI, because their investigation is getting too close. And while we debate the question of whether Nunes works for Trump or Putin, let’s consider the same GOP then voted not to publish the Democrat’s counter to the memo… Really?
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
While everyone is crying out pain, (third degree pain caused by scalding water, pasta, and dash of salt), it’s as good a time as any to announce, or confirm what we expected—
- Trump is tossing (along with the pot of food) Russian sanctions…the sanctions that were, by law, to go into effect today. Yep, he will not enact new sanctions against Russia in response to their meddling in the 2016 election. His excuse—
The real reason? Trump owes Putin bigly for the presidential win, and Putin scares him.
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way
Look at everything that happened today and decide for yourself which event Trump was hoping we’d miss. My guess is the sanctions. Trump has violated the Constitution of the United States of America by refusing to enforce the laws. Sanctions passed on a vote of 419-3 by the House and 98-2 by the Senate. His disregard of the law has taken us from a democracy to a dictatorship.
I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried
I’ve had my fill my share of losing
Can we impeach him?
Also… I won’t be watching Trump’s performance this evening, because God said not to.
