Anyone who thinks that Comrade Prznint Stupid is growing into the job really needs to think again. Let the tale of Jon Lerner be both cautionary and educational. We present a comedy in three acts:
- WaPo reported Thursday: “After months of searching, Vice President Pence has chosen a new national security adviser. Jon Lerner, deputy to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley … Lerner will also keep his job working for Haley, dividing his time between the two principals.”
- Axios reported over the weekend: Comrade Stupid “believed Lerner was a card-carrying member of the ‘Never Trump’ movement because Lerner crafted brutal attack ads for Club for Growth’s multimillion-dollar anti-Trump blitz during the Republican primaries.”
- Pence’s office:: “Tonight Jon informed the Vice President that he was withdrawing from coming on board as national security advisor.” — this went out while Comey was telling us that the prznint is morally unfit and a liar.
So, just like your less-than-average mean girl, Comrade Trump is still fuming over people who didn’t like him, even those who were paid to not like him.
L’etat c’est moi governance continues apace.
