GOP Books Trip On Kobayashi Maru

Now try getting out of the tree.

Even the AP(!) is noticing that the Elephant is up a tree:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans in Congress who are relying on Donald Trump to excite voters in the fall elections are not only defending the former president against the FBI search of his Mar-a-Lago home but politically capitalizing on it with grave and potentially dangerous rhetoric against the nation’s justice system.

The party that once stood staunchly for law-and-order has dramatically reversed course, stirring up opposition to the FBI and tapping into political grievances and far-right conspiracies that fed the deadly Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

It’s all part of the GOP’s election year strategy to harness voter outrage over the unprecedented search, quickly and unequivocally set in motion as Trump hosted a dozen Republicans for dinner of steak and scallops at his private Bedminster club the day after the FBI action.

Republicans just learned you gotta dance with them whut brung you:

And then another brite lite from the GOP on the House Intelligence Committee takes the pole position:

And the Politbureau at Pravda’s American competition gets it right:

Anyway, Hair Füror has a logical explanation for how he happened to have Top Secret Compartmentalized Information in the basement at Merde-a-Lardo (and this is not from The Onion):

“As we can all relate to, everyone ends up having to bring home their work from time to time. American presidents are no different.”

Digging the whole deeper, he added that he had a “standing order” to declassify documents “the moment” they left the Oval Office.

That of course is not how it works. That’s not how anything works. Presidents cannot unilaterally and on the spot declassify anything, and they certainly cannot have a standing order like that.  There’s a process as now de-classified information changes ripples throughout the entire national security apparatus. It’s no small deal.

    Gee, I hope that I don’t butt dial a nuclear strike. Better keep the phone in airplane mode.

    Shorter “If the president does it then it is not illegal.”

    Where have I heard that before?

    As someone pointed out on Twitter, everyone knows Trump can barely read, and has zero patience for meticulous work. So how did he know which files to take? He must have had help–i.e., one or more accessories to the crime. Maybe they’re getting nervous.

    The excuses change with the post. He doesn’t read, so why take any documents at all? Just like his “I was studying up for the next day” line. He never studied up for anything. I’d say it was all for sale, and I agree that someone must have helped him pick out valuable ones. It will be so sweet if this finally gets him his ticket to prison.
    Espionage, I like the sound of that.
