SHORT RIBS AND RANDOM THOUGHTS SOTU Edition, plus “Fire and Fury”

I won’t go through the excruciating review of Our Fake President’s State of the Union speech since Cong. Huffman has already provided a good summary.  The most divisive President in history  says the SOTU is “strong”.  A lot of us would disagree.  Meanwhile the despicable Devin Nunes ought to be brought up on treason charges himself for disclosing sensitive info for political reasons.  Let’s hope he’s stopped before lasting damage is done.  Trump is waging a war against the FBI, the intel agencies and everyone  else who stands between him and his alternate reality. This is going to be a very long three years. As of this writing, Trump, and his staff- the most incompetent in history- and his stooge Nunes are hell-bent on destroying our government and those who work there and they  have nothing better to offer.  And Trump is hell-bent on leaving  us defenseless against the ongoing cyberattacks.  Disgusting.

BTW Nunes has at least seven opponents this year.  Give generously to any of them.

“Fire and Fury”-   We finally got our copy from Eureka Books ($33) and it IS a juicy read,  Did you know that Trump is so out of it he thinks Nixon was framed???? Even Nixon didn’t claim that. It’s the ignorance, again.  I also hadn’t realized how pivotal a figure Jared Kushner is- he’s been behind every bad decision Trump has made. ‘(His West Wing nickname is “The Butler” because he hovers a lot and does little.) No less than NINE solid DC law firms turned down the dubious honor  of representing Trump in the Mueller inquiry. This is good:  “This was Bannon’s fundamental insight about Trump: he made everything personal and he was helpless not to.”  Bannon was obviously the smart one of the bunch. The part about Nicky Haley is not as was publicized;  no indication that she had an affair with anyone although she is regarded as being “as ambitious as Lucifer” .  Perhaps she’ll be picking over the bones  when the Trump thing collapses.

  1. Somehow I keep thinking about Paul Simon’s 1973 song “Learn How To Fall”–“Everybody got the runs for glory, Nobody stop and scrutinize the plan.”
