Lordy, the times they are a-fucking with our brains

“I can definitely say the President is not a liar”
Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Taking a leaf from Mr. James Comey’s playbook, “considering the nature of the person” we are dealing with, meaning Trump, we should indeed expect and prepare for the worst.

And the worst may unfold over a longer period of time than most American may want. 


And while the President’s staff may rush to join his lawyer in asserting that the President is NOT a liar…


The man himself may not actually give that much of a damn.

So, let Mr. Comey accuse the President of being a liar.

Hell, let him accuse the man of offending the Shaolin temple. It’s doubtful that Trump would care.

Meanwhile, Jeff Sessions has other things to worry about.

As Prince Tamim Bin Hamad would say: “I’m not prepared to surrender.” Indeed, one needs some time to prepare for such development. 


As America continues to cede the moral high ground, the list of unlikely candidates rushing to fill in the void continues to grow.

And it’s not only about the moral high ground. Isolationist tendencies are often perceived as weakness and taken as an invitation to bring the battle to one’s doorsteps: Two charged in U.S. with providing material support to Hezbollah.

Meanwhile, in a land far far away and that keeps drifting further away…

THEATRUM DELIRIA


The Cloud Over My head – a short play in one act
Trump
Hey, there's a cloud hanging over my head.
Pence
That's actually you're stench Mr. President.
Trump
You're sure it's not my iTunes account?
Pence
Pretty sure. They've cancelled your iTunes account due to lack of payment.
Trump
You mean I don't get it for free? I'm the President.
Pence
Indeed you are. But getting stuff for free because you’re president may constitute a violation of the Emolument Clause.
Trump
The emol…what now?
Pence
You know that thing about conflict of interest.
Trump
Oh yeah. Let’s not talk about that.  
Pence
Yeah, we sorta never do Mr. President.
