As I say, I do

It seems like almost everything Donald Trump complains about, he himself is guilty of. Here is a tweet from 2012 that is yet another example:

Well, we got an independent investigation anyway, but the Justice Department had to do it behind the back of the White House.

Ironically, everyone on both sides of the aisle seems to be happy about it. In fact, even Donald Trump took the news without throwing a temper tantrum. That’s the good news today — Trump bowed to the inevitable without publicly embarrassing himself or the country. We are so easily surprised.

UPDATE: Of course, Trump later unleashed a tweet storm, saying that the investigation is “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history“. Cough, Benghazi. Trump also accused Obama and Clinton of “illegal acts”.

Speaking of “acts”, while the Israeli government is smart to avoid criticizing Donald Trump for giving terrorism intelligence to the Russians that was originally supplied by Israel, former Israeli spymasters were highly critical of Trump. For example, the former head of the Israeli intelligence agency called Trump a “bull in a china shop” and said “If tomorrow I were asked to pass information to the CIA, I would do everything I could to not pass it to them.” Is this how Trump is going to protect us from terrorism?

    It’s telling that spineless Reps in Congress are, metaphorically, doing a Spicey and hiding from the press the past few days. The noose is slowly tightening. He lost a good chunk of, I’ll graciously call them “sensible”, right wing punditry almost from the get-go (the George Wills, the David Brookses) and lately it’s Krauthammer piling on.

    When you’ve lost Krauthammer, you’ve pretty much lost what’s left of your literate media base. Lately, I hear even Fox, to a degree, is coming to grips with the fruits of their own making, often seeming confused about how to spin or make any sense of it all, hoping it’s just another D.C. storm that will soon blow over so we can finally get back to MAGA. Still, the few minutes of Hannity I was able to stomach yesterday has him ranting about, you know the usual, lame stream media, unhinged Democrats in Congress, liberal conspiracy theorists and what he likes to call the “Swamp of the Deep State” bureaucracy selectively leaking information (“true or not true”, I love that qualifier!) who are “at war with the President of the United States” (who knew, after all these Presidents?). Hey, didn’t Don the Con promise to drain that sucker? He’s the only one who can fix it, we were assured. What the hell did we have to lose?

    Trump is learning the hard way that being President is not like being a hotel or golf course CEO, let alone a reality TV host. Simply barking “You’re fired” doesn’t make your problems go away and even your sycophants aren’t always going to let you throw them under the bus. Or to paraphrase Colbert last night in his monologue, “he tried to throw Rosenstein under the bus, forgetting that as deputy AG he’s actually the bus driver. Next stop, Indictment Avenue!”. Couldn’t happen to a nicer swamp creature. The tragedy, of course, is he threatens to take us under the swamp with him.

    Trump: “With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!”

    Please, anybody, what is he even talking about?

    I must have been sleeping for the last eight years?

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but, now that Donald Trump is President, can he not direct his own Attorney General to start investigations into all the things he alleges Obama and Clinton and anybody else to have done? Is somebody tying Trump’s tiny little hands, for cripes’ sake?

    Redjon – when he’s not tweeting, eating, golfing or at another victory rally, he’s been busy setting up the commission to find those 3M illegal voters who cast for Hillary. There’s only so many hours in a day.

    After that, he’s going to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate fraudulent activities, just as he promised during one of the debates, should he win, remember?
