Trump, you're fired

screen-shot-2020-12-21-at-4-22-54-pmIn one more astonishing display of self-aggrandizement and megalomania, soon-to-be Ex-President Donald Trump tweeted that the source of perhaps the most serious cyber attack ever on America was China, not Russia.

Notably  the only one supposedly in the know that fingers China instead of Russia, Trump wrote: “The Cyber Hack is far greater in the Fake News Media than in actuality. I have been fully briefed and everything is well under control.” The media, he said are “petrified” of “discussing the possibility that it may be China (it may!).”

Well under control? Well under control?! Who briefed you, Mr. President, Spanky the Clown?

Even your own people say it’s likely the Russians. And it’s far from under control. Some compare it to an act of war.  Just when it appears that you can’t throw any more mud on your credibility, you come up with this?

My repeated message to Republicans: You’d better get together soon on a viable, smart and emotionally healthy candidate for 2024. Joe Biden will have made a hash of the United States, but if Trump runs again then, as he has hinted, Republicans again will lose.

  • The Republicans will come up with some establishment candidate to run in 2024, such as a Mit Romney or John McCain --- and he will lose. National politics has come to resemble Illinois politics, where there is no real difference between Democrat and Republican, save for the spelling. It was this way before Trump and it will settle back into the cozy crony collaboration after Trump. The Republicans don't mind losing because they can then blame the Democrats for the usual and constant failure of the latest program.

    As for the hack, maybe it is the Russians, but the Chinese are a much greater threat to this country than the Russians -- with the exception of the Democrat Party. Trusting the people around Trump is like a wounded sailer in the drink trusting sharks will leave him alone.

  • Biden will make a hash of the United States? Like something you've been smoking?
