Comrade Trump: ‘I have been totally exonerated by a bunch of total bullshit’*

Seething Rage.

Comrade Prznint Stupid is returning to his pre-politics strategy—sue the bejeebus outta everyone—that he long used in his bidness career — resist, delay and sue to try to avoid being impeached.

We may have mentioned yesterday (fact check: true!) that Stupid is suing House Oversight Committee Elijah Cummings (the Executive branch asks the Judicial branch to stop the Legislative branch) to keep their mitts off his accountants , ordered subpoena’ed former White House staffer Carl Kline not to show up (and he didn’t show up! Cummings is setting up the committee to vote to hold Kline in Contempt of Congress!), claimed subpoena’ed former White House counsel Don McGahn cannot testify because of executive privilege (fact check: false!), and ordered living typo Steve Mnuchin (Worst. Bond. Villain. Ever.) to slow walk his tax returns (ALLEGEDLY, though I’m pretty sure Mnuchin would fall on a sword willingly, unless it inconvenienced himself).

In the WaPo, Prznint Stupid says that he does not want any of his current or former staffers to testify because, “There is no reason to go any further.”


“In an interview with The Washington Post, Trump said that complying with congressional requests was unnecessary after the White House cooperated with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe of Russian interference and the president’s own conduct in office. ‘There is no reason to go any further, and especially in Congress where it’s very partisan — obviously very partisan,’ Trump said. … ‘I don’t want people testifying to a party, because that is what they’re doing if they do this,’ Trump said.”


How can one argue with logic like, “that is what they’re doing if they do this” – seems watertight, amirite?

Additionally Stupid announced that all members of his administration are forbidden to attend the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) dinner (AKA the Nerd Prom, and the nerds should be grateful).

Petty, but you know, totally not a dictator.

(Anyone wanna put some Quatloos down that his most loyal lapdogs in the House and Senate will decide to not go, even the media sluts who always are in the green rooms? What’s the over-under on Senatorette Lindsey Graham not attending?)

Anyway, it is a return to form: delay, don’t pay, run out the clock with his deep pockets. If he could stiff some carpenters along the way it would be like getting the old gang back together.

    Serious question: Speaking of suing, isn’t it all bluster and baloney? Since Trump would have to sit for deposition (which I assume is under oath)? Or at least be cross-examined? Neither of which he, in million years, etc. No?

      It’s difficult to sue the government for doing their jobs. If I understand the lesson of all the wrongful death suits, you have to prove that the government was acting outside it’s authority.
      Oh, and I just don’t understand why Trump would be concerned about being under oath. It is a concept that he doesn’t process the same way as a person with empathy and – well, pretty much any emotions other than narcissistic emotions.

    This is the shit hitting the fan, Stage II. We are entering the fabled “constitutional crisis” far sooner than I expected. What will the courts do?

      Some if not all the orders are required by law, e.g. the tax returns law, which goes back to the Harding Administration. Others aren’t subject to executive privilege because they have already been divulged (like everything Libertarian Don McGahn already testified).

        He thinks he dealing with contractors he can strong arm. If his stonewalling starts an impeachment inquiry it will be “SO UNFAIR!!!

    • Given the R’s have been packing the courts with reliable Fascist Federalist nominees like bank robbers stuffing the dufflebags before the cops arrive, I expect the courts will solemnly affirm that His Lordship Highness Dear Leader is always correct and having hit 22 consecutive Holes in One on his first outing at the golf course, that Congress has no right to investigate anyone but Democrats.

      It says so right there in the Constitution…the one inexplicably scrawled in in Sharpie for some reason: AMENDMENT 28: “The Preznit BOSS of Congress. He BOSS of everyone! NO COLLUSION YOU’RE THE COLLUSION! ANGRY CONFLICTED DEMOCRATS LOCK THEM UP! LOCK THEM UP!” * and so ispso facto, quo et idipoticum and the DeweyCheatham&Howe precedent the courts will find for the plaintiff, the one, the only Donald the Great!

      I only wish I was writing satire…

      That the 28th amendment to the US Constitution is exactly 140 characters long is only a coinkydink, just like all those Russians in and around Trump’s NO COLLUSION!! Campaign.
