Trump scandal is like a can of worms

There's only one thing you can do after you open a can of worms. Get a bigger can!

When Trump's early cabinet appointees turned out to be corrupt scumbags and grifters,

I realized that eventually we would get to impeachment. When it was revealed that his cruel immigration policy was locking up little children away from their parents, I was even more certain that he would dishonorably be shown out the door. He could have chosen to be a decent president with a legacy of accomplishment that improved the lives of all Americans. But no. He chose to use his office in the furtherance of his own self-cherishing. What a wasted opportunity. What a wasted life.

I've seen this movie before -- the GOPer saga

I was in my 20s in the Nixon era. I was in college, and yes I was a hippy back then. All the young men that I knew got out of going to Vietnam one way or another. Back then it "America, love it or leave it." The civil rights movement was coming to a boil. Today's Trumpsters don't appear to me as much different than the red neck RWers back then.

Why they hate government

Trumpsters hate government, because they are emotional undisciplined 4 yr olds. They want the "freedom" to say whatever hateful stupidity pops into their minds, and do whatever they like, no matter how much it trashes the environment or disturbs and harms other people. They are selfish children, who resent paying any taxes that help other people. A mindful adult tames his mind and curbs his speech and behavior against harming others. But not the Trumpsters.

Nikey Haley seems to be the only Trump appointee to get out,

while the getting out was. She saved herself from getting dragged into Trump's criminal sewer of slime. At least as far as we know. Not the most sterling UN Ambassador we ever had. But smart enough to know that the stench she smelled came from the WH.

I feel like I am watching a morality play

on a par with something like Merchant of Venice, Faust, Richard III, or MacBeth. I sure hope so.

When will Pence jump ship -- if ever

I know that Pence is not the sharpest pencil in the drawer, but surely he knows that Trump's goose is cooked. Pence is probably up to his eyeballs in this mess. He's been such a loyal Trump ass-kisser, I await to see how he attempts to get out from under the on-coming mud slide.

What I want to see

I want to see a pic of Trump after he gets his first prison haircut -- Assuming he lives that long. I firmly believe that he will be prosecuted and convicted by either NY state of Fed crimes, whichever comes first and assuming he lives that long.

He's bald as a billard ball on the crown and back of his head. Wouldn't you love to be the prison barber and run a buzz shaver over his mop? He's so vain about his hair. A close-shaved head would be so humiliating for him.

Lewandowski hearing - I'm tired of this BS kabuki

When o when will Dems find assholes like Lewandowski in contempt and put their sorry butts in jail? Today's hearing is a complete waste of my time. I simply cannot tolerate the GOP.

I got a ray of hope last night watching Rachel Maddow and Jerry Nadler

Yes, an impeachment inquiry has begun. But we won't hear it described that way in the MSmedia. It is obvious, painfully and blatantly obvious, that there is something seriously, dangerously, and insanely wrong with Donald Trump. The man is just bloody, fucking crazy and evil. I can see it it. You can see it. Everyone can see it. But for our constitutional rights and institutions, there is not much difference between Trump's racist criminal regime and a banana republic. His stupid, blatant, constant lies that even a child can see are lies, and stupid lies are that leave me in disbelief that anyone could tell such obvious lies. But then I remember that he is stupid and crazy.

What I don't understand is how his enablers can keep pretending that he is not a fucking lying loon. I don't know where Nadler's impeachment inquiry will go. Maybe if he finally gets McGann in a public witness chair and Trump's taxes reveal tax fraud out the wazooo, maybe then, his enablers will throw Trump under the bus and masquerade as indignant citizens.

I so yearn for a democratic government not blackened with filthy bribery and hatefulness. I yearn for a government based on ethical morality, led by decent human beings.
