Still clown watching.

November 6, 2019

As the Democrats and other Never-Trumpers go all in on impeachment, the President’s reliance on Rudy Giuliani’s dealing with Ukraine, rather than the State Department  is suddenly a very big deal. Why?

First, the former New York mayor is probably not nearly as accomplished, and perhaps too loquacious with the press when operating in the field of foreign affairs, so why does the President use him?

Well, given that about the only people Trump can trust are members of his family, and maybe people who know a lot about him like Rudy (and vice versa), it certainly seems somewhat understandable to have him in the mix.

Take the US Ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland for instance. Someone obviously tuned him up, given that he completely reversed his testimony literally overnight.

It’s not that the ambassador is a Trump enemy necessarily, but he does have a career to protect, and Pompeo and Trump will not be around forever, even if the President is re-elected.

Actually, all this appears to be part of the initial attempt to stop Trump initiated by the DOJ and FBI and Democrats who desperately needed to keep the lid on their shenanigans.

Their reasoning seems to be that if they can keep Trump isolated, they can damage his presidency to the point that in the end everyone just quits paying attention.

They may be hoping that his voters will just get tired of all the brouhaha and either vote against him or just not vote at all next year, just to gain some peace and quiet.

This does of course require that they can impeach him.  They’ve gone too far to back out now.

The sad part of all this is that Trump has done some really good things for the country, leading one to wonder how good a President he could be if he had gotten a fair shot in the beginning.

On the other hand, what happens if this now all too obvious warfare or coup attempt if you prefer,  backfires?

It would be truly epic if he not only wins another term, but is able to extract a few pounds of flesh of his own.

We’d pay damn good money to watch that.
