❝ President Donald Trump saw his decades-long pal and political adviser Roger Stone was convicted on Friday. The jury was clearly swayed by the argument that Stone lied to protect Trump and convicted Stone on all seven criminal counts in just a week and a half’s time. The case was prosecuted by Trump’s Department of Justice.
Despite those facts, Trump promptly dismissed the conviction as the product of a double-standard, in which Democrats get away with everything and Trump’s supporters get away with nothing…
❝ “So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie? A double standard like never seen before in the history of our Country?”
❝ UC Berkeley Law Prof. Orin Kerr and others quickly noted the president’s use of the word “they” [i.e. blaming no one in particular for Stone’s conviction while suggesting that a railroading had taken place].
Kerr pointed out the Trump appointees and the Trump Justice Department — which is often accused, by the way, of carrying water for the president — has prosecuted these cases and gotten convictions.
Trump – and his peers in today’s GOP Executive – turn to whining about “they” when their partners in crime, their buddies, in this case a lifelong associate of Trump are convicted of crimes. Everyone else they whine about hasn’t been charged or convicted of anything. They’re only “guilty” of opposing the demented plans of politicians who dream of being in charge of a fascist state.
❝ …Trump is betting the Democratic-led congressional impeachment inquiry, which entered a new phase on Wednesday with public hearings, could help him win the November 2020 election. Public opinion polls show support for impeachment is concentrated among Democrats…and a boatload of Independents.
Last Friday alone, the president sent out more than 400 Facebook ads asking for donations that would be rewarded with a personalized “Impeachment Defense Membership Card.”
Wonder how long before Trump chumps get armbands along with their membership cards.
❝ It’s on.
The ‘Baby Trump’ political art protest balloon has followed Trump around the world, mocking him mercilessly. Baby Trump is reportedly headed to the site of this weekend’s football game between University of Alabama and Louisiana State University, at which Trump is expected to be booed loudly again.
Can’t always get what you want…Sometimes you get what you deserve!
❝ A Republican lawmaker has abandoned his effort to rename a stretch of old Route 66 in northeastern Oklahoma after President Donald Trump…
State Sen. Nathan Dahm…may find another spot to rename Donald Trump Highway, but it won’t be associated with the Mother Road…
❝ Republican Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell, who oversees Oklahoma’s marketing and branding, swiftly rejected the idea of naming sections of Route 66 after Trump or any other political figure.
“I don’t care if you want to call it Mother Teresa Highway or Donald Trump Highway; there is only one thing to call it, and that’s Historic Route 66,” Pinnell said…
Pasting the Fake President’s name on anything other than the back of his prison uniform is a waste of advertising space.
Uncle Sam is the Largest Landowner in the U.S., BTW…the Fake President is responsible for managing it all.
