Hey guys, remember a couple of weeks ago when Jake Tapper cut off Pee-Wee Hermann Goerring saying that he was talking to an audience of one (Comrade Trump)? I think that the audience of one phenomena is spreading:
…and that’s from Tiger Beat.
The gist of the article is that everytime Ty Cobb (Preznint Stupid’s lawyer handling the Russian Investigation for the White House) predicts that the probe will be wrapping up soon, he’s really saying it to calm down the mango-hued shitgibbon.
“I’d be embarrassed if this is still haunting the White House by Thanksgiving and worse if it’s still haunting him by year end,” Cobb told Reuters in August. In December, Cobb — who leads the White House’s legal response to Mueller’s Russia probe — told POLITICO he thought the special counsel could exonerate Trump by the end of January.”
And, you know, to any sentient being reading this, that’s BS, and Cobb could probably hear the laughter coming from my little hut here in the shithole of Seattle if he tried. Mueller has not interviewed Bannon yet, let alone Comrade Trump, so this investigation (WITCH HUNT!!1!) still has a lot of legs and time to go.
Now, as a strategy for keeping Comrade Trump sedated in the monkey house (I recommend a blow dart of Thorazine followed up with a polo mallet, but few ever heed my advice), this is probably as good as it gets, and certainly is better than threatening to quit to keep Stupid from trying to fire Mueller or Rosenstein or both (and all that that would involved, you know, Saturday Night Massacre-style).
Tiger Beat, however, sees another angle, which I think is kinda funny: it’s an attempt at Public Relations:
“Cobb might also be pursuing a public relations goal — signaling to the outside world that Trump has nothing to hide from Mueller and that he is not obstructing justice. That puts him at odds with other Trump lawyers and associates who counsel a more guarded approach toward Mueller. They include Trump’s personal lawyers, John Dowd and Jay Sekulow.”
So, he’s in the Baghdad Bob bidness, which really makes as much sense as anything.
