Special counsel

We'll have to see how it goes. Chuck Schumer won't be satisfied unless he gets Trump's giant head on a pike. Can't control any of it, so for now we'll just keep watching.

Are we allowed to laugh openly at such clowns?

Bike Bubba said...

For now we are.

Sure, Jerry, we can laugh, but it's better to hit 'em where they live. It's about time the Attorney General gets out of his bunker and starts indicting people for the crimes of the past. Why isn't John Koskinen gone? Lois Lerner didn't get a pardon. Where are the charges? Get on offense, for God's sake.

Lerner is getting off, Scot free... as is the entire Obama staff. You know this already.

Why should that be, though? If Trump is actually a fighter and not a circus clown, it's long since time for him to start fighting.

I wish he would.

The Left has decided that it's war. Give them war.

Bike Bubba said...

I'm with our host on Lerner et al. Open and shut cases ignored by the Obama DOJ? Man up and indict, get a few quick convictions, and see what happens. See what Lois says to avoid much time in the pokey. See who she throws under the bus.

Right, Bubba. Going after the IRS first would have made a lot of sense. Besides the ample evidence of real crimes there, it’s worth remembering that the optics would flow in Trump’s direction. I don’t recall seeing Efrem Zimbalist Jr. playing an IRS agent on television. And I’d love to see the Democrats go to the mattresses to defend John “Face That Cries Out To Be Punched” Koskinen.

So the pet theory is that when a president is under pressure he decides to bomb someone or declare war to switch the focus, aka "Wag the Dog". Under the same theory, but in a different application, wouldn't it have the same effect (and stir up the base) if Trump "declared war" on the IRS (aka "Kick the Dog")?

(And if he did it while simultaneously releasing his taxes to de-fang that sibilant snake - assuming there's nothing more than garden-variety rich folk gaming in there - my, oh my.)
