“President harassment: it’s like sexual harassment, only the Republicans take it seriously.”
Comedian and TV host, Stephen Colbert
Donald Trump has been throwing around the term “presidential harassment” to describe what the Democrats in the House of Representatives are doing by opening up investigations into his finances, his inauguration expenditures, his obstruction of justice, and his collusion with Russia to win the presidential election.
During his State of the Union speech last week he even had a cute little rhyme that one of his speechwriters cooked up: “If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation.”
Of course, he still wants “his” Justice Department to investigate and prosecute Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey for some perceived crimes that only he knows about. I guess, in Trump’s demented mind, what’s good for the goose is not good for the gander.
