OMG, Trump…

May 20, 2017

The Media-Dem-State Complex used its patented Hysterical Wave™ technique to achieve its goal: a poorly substantiated media story from an anonymous Deep State source followed by echo-chamber histrionics from Democrats, then, just as the public catches on to one scam, a new poorly substantiated story followed by more histrionics and so on.

Oh my God! Trump fired Comey to stop the Russia investigation!!!! It’s treason!!! Wait, the acting FBI head says that never happened… Oh, but now — oh my God!!!! —Trump released classified information to Russia!!!! Wait, Obama did that half a dozen times and no one said anything. Yes, but now there’s a memo from Comey saying Trump tried to stop his investigation — oh my God, it’s impeachable!!!! Wait, Comey said under oath that never happened either.

Too late. Special prosecutor. We win.

Well played, dirtbags.

Trump bears plenty of responsibility for this. He’s learned a lot since he announced his candidacy and good for him. But he has not learned when to shut his big flapping face. His tweets undermine those who try to defend him so that they stop wanting to defend him. His bluster and exaggeration weaken his self-defense. And his changing storylines make him untrustworthy. As much as I disagree with Deputy Attorney General Ron Rosenstein’s decision to appoint a special counsel, it’s very possible he just felt Trump had put him in an untenable position. By saying Rosenstein’s letter spurred his firing of Comey, then denying it, Trump may have turned Rosenstein into a witness who could no longer oversee the investigation.
