No, he’s not president, is he? Why? Say it with me now: because it’s a yuge mooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
Indeed, Axios has a short summary on some of the biggest recent Big Failure leaks:
A superior guard dog found that 13 senior Trump officials, including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, ethical law violated and helped create “a taxpayer-funded electoral apparatus within the upper echelons of the executive branch.”
A second grand jury was involved in the New York criminal investigation of the Trump organization (NBC News).
An Atlanta district attorney is moving towards convening its own grand jury in an investigation into Trump’s attempts to overturn elections in Georgia (New York Times).
And this is just a recent list.
Remember when Trump lost 59 electoral cases, all in an attempt to change the 2020 election results?
Remember when Trump claimed he never solved the cases and therefore would never, ever settle with the plaintiffs who sued him for his bogus university?
“I don’t solve cases,” Trump said during the Republican presidential debate in March 2016. “I don’t do it because that’s why I don’t get sued very often, because I’m not satisfied, unlike a lot of other people.”
Remember when Trump sued Bill Maher for breach of contract after Maher joked that he would contribute $ 5 million to charity if Trump could prove his father wasn’t an orangutan? He withdrew that.
Then there was Trump’s high-profile lawsuit against author Timothy O’Brien, who dared to write that Trump was worth less than Trump liked to claim he was. That was launched, although not before Trump sitting for an awkward deposition who has opened numerous holes in his gigantic tower of lies Jenga.
And those are just the tip of a very large and very dirty iceberg.
I feel as frustrated as anyone else when Trump struggles with situations that would cut other people’s knees. Trump’s superpower is his shamelessness, and it has been a shield that has apparently protected him more than once. But his luck may not last forever: he managed to get himself out of trouble when he was president, but now he has no public office, and this idea that he is somewhat bulletproof is not confirmed by history. (A Republican-controlled Senate would never have condemned Trump in his two impeachments. The justice system, on the other hand, isn’t as friendly to lawless scammers.)
Indeed, its post-presidential legal danger is significant. The Manhattan District Attorney is still waiting in the wings after making it successfully won the right to look at Trump’s tax records, who protects as Jeffrey Dahmer guards a freezer in the basement.
Meantime, Scotland is looking into its golf courses, and as mentioned above, Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis is investigating that ridiculous phone call to (Peach’s) Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger, among other Trump attempts to subvert democracy. New York Attorney General Letitia James is also still on the case; and who knows what goodies the committee of January 6 will eventually find? It sure looks like things are not going well so far.
As Trump continues to go through the legal shrink – and as we wait, and wait, and wait a little longer for the wheels of justice to grind him into grainy, bitter-tasting Tang powder – we can seek solace in the fact that Trump is an underdog. long standing that alone pretends win.
Sure, he’s the slippery type, but the nets are closing in, and judging by his latest losing streak, Trump’s luck may finally run out.
Fingers crossed, people.
He was a comedian Sarah Silverman to say, “THIS IS FANTASTIC FANTASTIC,” and suggested author Stephen King to scream “Pulitzer Prize !!!” (on Twitter, that is). What is that?
