2017 - going to be like Watergate on Steroids...

Looks like the press is finally waking up now that the cast of villains is assembling.

"Chaffetz Skipped Meeting With Ethics Chief He Threatened To Subpoena, Emails Show" -- huff post (Hoist by their own Emails!)

The Daily Show will be about The Daily Lies

The Russian Mafia and their Amerikanski friends

It's like an all-star team of daily scandal makers. 1972 rerun only bigger. Sure it might get familiar after a while but the sheer number of villains and their amazing audacity ensures at least ONE big scandal soon to come. And among the craven bunch at CNN, MSNBC and the like, at least one journalist is surely going to seek to make it big by exposing them.

Grab your popcorn!

1. There will be so much

that we will be overwhelmed and that has been their plan from the get-go. Outrage, Corruption and Scandal Fatigue.

2. Scandal fatigue works both ways:

There will be not one policy-initiative or endeavour by the Republican party or Trump that won't be accompanied by accusations of corruption and illegitimacy. Whatever topics they will be trying to switch to, in the end it will always bend back to talk about corruption and whether this has something to do with his wealth or his tax-returns or Russia or insider-trading or ...

And when the media circles back from the topic of the day to these accusations, do you think Trump will try to ignore the accusations and bring the discussion back to the topic of the day?

HA! No. Trump will take the bait and lament about the accusations, the discussion will briefly spin out of control and the topic of the day will drown.

Rinse and repeat with the next topic of the day.

Imagine trying to do your job... and every single time you present an idea a discussion breaks out how you slept your way to the top.

I predict a heart-attack for Trump, due to all the stress.
