Kamensky's cartoon says it all. Its sheer ugliness makes it all the more accurate.

This is from a friend Mike N. on fb:

Who are we to believe? The Liar-in-Chief or FBI Director James Comey. Comey said today that “the Department of Justice should publicly reject President Donald Trump’s explosive allegation over the weekend that then-President Barack Obama had ordered a wiretap of Trump’s communications during the presidential campaign”. Comey said that “Trump’s claim, which he tweeted early on Saturday without offering any evidence, is false and must be corrected”. I’m sure that Twitter Trump will call Comey a “so-called” FBI Director and that his days are numbered if he does not fall in line.

Funny and true. What a great combination.

Infidel has it exactly right.

But how does it stop? How do we get it to stop?

Satyavati devi dasi, we've got to endure this for 4 years, unless the horror show is impeached, resigns, or twitters himself into oblivion.

Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin:

"...he [Trump] is increasingly out of touch with reality. Just as he obsessed over the crowd size at his inauguration and the fictional illegal voters upward of 3 million, Trump’s mammoth ego cannot take the daily drumbeat of attacks and accusations. When adversity strikes — as it did with new allegations concerning Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was forced to recuse himself from any campaign-related investigation — he becomes unhinged and paranoid. He can stick to a teleprompter speech for an hour, but soon reverts to form...[skip]...Trump inadvertently emphasized that at the core this is about whether the intelligence community has discovered the president of the United States is compromised. That cannot very well be left solely to congressional partisans or to a Justice Department that reports to him.

Four years? I think it's most likely he'll be impeached within a few months. That requires a certain number of Republicans in the House and Senate to go along, but they can see that this endless barrage of fiascos is an embarrassment to their own party and will do real damage if it goes on, and they'd probably prefer Pence as President anyway.

Future histories of this period will remember Trump as a footnote, a flashy and noisy but ultimately trivial prelude to the Pence administration.

The real question is, can the present level of protest and resistance be sustained after Trump's blithering lunacy gives way to Pence's "normal evil" for most of the next four years?

A note to my readers:

A screaming right winger left a comment in ALL CAPS complaining about the cartoons published here. The complaint is that I did not like cartoons about Mr. Obama, so therefore, I'm a hypocrite for publishing these at P.E.

The "ANONYMOUS" who complained isn't very bright.

First, the cartoons I objected to were cartoon that attacked Mr. Obama racially not because of his policies or speeches or any other activity connected with being POUTS. Cartoon depicting him and his family as gorillas and chimpanzees were meant to dehumanize our first African-American family, and that has deep roots in our racist history. That's why I objected.

Second, the cartoons published in this post are from around the world. They give us an insight into how mocked and disliked Trump is globally. There's nothing in those cartoons that mocks Trump for being a white man. Those cartoon mock his actions. And deservedly so.

Infidel753, I'm beginning to believe this country will not sustain a mania in the WH for 4 years. I just wonder how we'll see him leave. Impeachment? Resignation? Frog-marched in handcuffs from the West Wing?

Jerry Critter said...

My guess is that he will resign. He will not want to go through the humiliation of impeachment and will probably prefer to resign rather than go to jail. Following resignation, president Pence will absolve him of any and all "high crimes and misdemeanors".

Why is it that anyone who disagree with you is "Not very bright"?
Perhaps it's you who isn't "very bright"!
