How we see him

I just ran across this on Twitter. Some people really believe that Trump is a god fearing man who prays. Let that sink in. Oh, and Democrats want to let Mexicans and caravans of Europeans into the country.

You can’t make this stuff up. Ok, so the artist made it up. It’s the hard bright blindness to seeing Trump as he actually is.


So, that’s the purple sky contingent on the right.

And on the leftish, we have Randy Rainbow setting the Trump Era to music. Rogers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific, if I recall correctly.

That’s more like it.

The left is just funnier.

Why should we care?

The media is all breathlessly aflutter with the prospect that Democrats might be getting ready to impeach. All the journalists are prodding them to say that they are. That’s what all the document requests are about, right? Right?? Say it, damnit! Just say it!!!

You know that the minute they do, those same journalists will turn and accuse them of partisanship. Then they’ll wag that dog all the way to November 2020.

So, we know what’s going to happen. They can’t help themselves. But why should we care?

There’s more evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors to impeach 5 presidents 10 times over. WE know it but there are still some Americans out there who think that since no one has reigned in Trump, it can’t be that bad.

That was the magical fairy dust of having two houses of Congress in Republican hands with all the Devin Nuneses you could eat. That era is over. Now we can lift the cover on all that racketeering, fraternizing with the enemy and personal enrichment. It’s all going to come out in all it’s seedy glory.

I’m not going to predict that Trump’s faithful base is ever going to turn on him. Nope, I expect them to double down because they hate the libs more than they love their country.

But there were 65 million people who had to sit on their hands for three years of a coup and none of us have threatened a civil war. We want to see how it happened and how Trump and his allies did it. Once that’s out in the open, then we can decide whether to impeach.

It can’t be done until it’s absolutely certain that he can’t get back up.

So, stuff your ears, Jerrold Nadler, Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters and Elijah Cummings. Keep your eyes on the prize – the Truth.

And ask journalists if they’re interested in knowing the Truth because that’s all that counts.
