By biggest lie, I mean the most disgusting with the biggest ramifications as to our already shaky beliefs in our political institutions. Not to mention to our standing around the world. Trump has asserted our former president is a criminal while providing no substantial evidence. And, as it always works with him. That’s his story and he’s sticking to it.
Almost a week ago Trump accused predecessor Barack Obama of wire tapping Trump Tower, a felony. And he continues to hold that position despite members of his own party on key intelligence committees asking: Where’s the proof?
While many of Trump’s outrageous statements can be viewed as cagey maneuvers to change topics he no longer wants focused upon, this bait and switch seems to have gone awry because he has pushed some of his fellow Republicans in key committee positions, like Senators John Mc Cain and Lindsay Graham and Representative Devin Nunez, to call him on this charade. Call it the faded shades of Republican integrity arisen.
Over the next two weeks there will be hearings and FBI Director Comey is scheduled to appear at one Monday. It seems best to see how this sorts itself out, but for those wanting an update here is spokesperson Sean Spicer echoing his boss’s adamant refusal to give up his claim (though look for much upcoming spinning of terms and blaming of others by the Trump team to avoid being nailed.)
I am rushing this post because I want to escape my obsession with Trumpenstein by replacing it with another: MARCH MADNESS. It is much more fun with little likelihood of it endangering our democracy and/or the entire world.
Gotta go. Games and brews and laughs await me.
