Our Cartoon-Like President

26331E44-284B-4530-8210-BA31F718745CDid you ever read that book by Michael Wolff, “Fire and Fury”? Chris asked.

“You mean the one about our cartoon-like president?” Steve responded. “No, but I did read Bob Woodward’s book, “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

“There’s just no precedent for his presidency, is there?” Chris said. “I wish we were back in those halcyon days when we had a sane, competent leader in the White House. Someone like Barack Obama, for instance.”

“I know,” Steve agreed. “Trump acts like he thinks he’s the king where he and the members of his royal family can do anything they want to, let the people be damned.”

“Yeah,” said Chris. “And like a king or a dictator, he wants to have a huge — and very costly — military parade to show off what a big gun he has.”

Steve sighed. “I swear, if the technology existed, I would have my body frozen until the day that Trump is indicted, impeached, removed from the White House, or voted out of office.

    At least the rats are jumping ship with the change in the House. Zinke is going (thankfully). It won’t be too much longer. Especially since I don’t think even his supporters will like a government shutdown over his stupid wall. His tweets the last 48 hours are both hysterical and frightening at the same time. He is trying to draw attention away from something but I don’t think its Mueller this time.

      I think it’s everything. The walls are closing in on him and he’s behaving like the cornered rat that he is.
