In the wake of Trump's undiplomatic ClusterFuck with our Kurdish allies...

the clips of Trump's backpedaling are an interesting study in Mea Culpas. Though, he hasn't come out and said he made a mistake. He is still holding onto the line that he didn't approve the Turkish assault, EVEN AT THE SAME TIME THAT HE ADMITS THAT THE TURKS HAVE BEEN TELLING HIM FOR TWO YEARS THAT THEY WANTED TO DO IT.

Putting that aside, watching Trump spin this fatal error (It was fatal for quite a few of our allies) I couldn't help wondering how he was going to use his persuasive tactics when all he has are the narrow halls and exercise yard of a prison to apply his trade. Because there is no doubt in my mind, Trump belongs in prison.

So I imagine him talking to the boys sitting on the bench in the yard, talking with the same swagger that today I see on t.v., and I wonder, will it work as well? A bullshitter in the midst of other felons.

1. All the backpedaling can't cover Trump's fuckups

And I bet Turkey has a recording of this call that started this self-induced calamity....

"On Sunday, after a phone call between Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the White House issued a statement saying U.S. troops would not interfere in a Turkish military operation to remove U.S.-backed Kurdish forces along Syria’s border with Turkey, and that U.S. troops would “no longer be in the immediate area.” Hours later, American soldiers began a pullout from positions in Ras Al-Ayn and Tal Abyad, two towns along the border in northern Syria, local news channels reported."

2. Exactly right!

What's so stable genius about giving your enemies material they can blackmail you with?

3. I doubt they'd put him in with the general population, but if they did...

make book on how long it would take for some badass to pound him into the sand out in the yard.

I certainly hope he wouldn't get shanked-- he needs to be seen after he gets out crying while sitting on his golden toilet.

Jarvanka can be split up to work in different homeless shelters, and the asshole brothers can work in animal shelters.

4. The kids' futures are on the line.

I wouldn't bank on projecting full bankruptcy on Trump progeny, just because at that level of wealth the rules are very different. They will have friends who will take them in and provide them with opportunities that will keep them afloat.

And that's what happens with a tax bracket that doesn't pay its fair share of tax money.
