If only we could dismiss Sean Hannity, Jeanine Pirro, Laura Ingraham and the other well-paid propagandists at Fox News as though they were harmless drunks at the end of the bar, ticking off their conspiracy theories to anyone who will listen. Unfortunately, the guy sitting on the next stool is the president of the United States, and he’s all ears.
It would be one thing if Ms. Pirro were only spouting off on television. But she is a friend of Mr. Trump’s and has met privately with him and his top advisers to sell her half-cocked theories. After Mr. Trump’s victory last year, she interviewed to be his deputy attorney general, a job that would have empowered her to fire Mr. Mueller on her own.
To put it mildly, this is insane. The primary purpose of Mr. Mueller’s investigation is not to take down Mr. Trump. It’s to protect America’s national security and the integrity of its elections by determining whether a presidential campaign conspired with a foreign adversary to influence the 2016 election — a proposition that grows more plausible every day.
If the president’s supporters are upset about how close that investigation is getting to the Oval Office, they should ask not whether any F.B.I. investigator has ever held an opinion about politics, but rather why Mr. Trump chose as his closest advisers people with a tendency to talk to Russian officials and then fail to tell the truth, again and again, about the nature of those communications.
When the propagandists say, “Get rid of Mueller,” it’s not the truth they’re trying to protect; it’s Mr. Trump himself.
The entire Trump family couldn’t put together a valid absentee ballot between them in the New York mayoral race held November 7. Daily News:
Officials at the city’s Board of Elections said the President signed and dated an absentee ballot along with an application on Oct. 19, checking a box that said he would be absent from the city on Election Day.
First Lady Melania Trump did the same, submitting a handwritten form that had everything in capital letters.
But the First Lady did not sign the envelope she put the ballot in as required by BOE, so her vote wasn’t counted. […]
Trump’s daughter Ivanka also botched her ballot. It was filled out correctly, but she didn’t mail it until Election Day—which was too late to be counted, officials said.
Her husband, Jared Kushner, didn’t mail his back at all, according to the board. […]
Officials said the President’s ballot was fine. But that was before the Daily News pointed out to an official that the date of birth on his application was a full month off.
Trump, 71, was born on June 14, 1946, but his ballot application lists his birthday as July.
Bear in mind that Jared and Ivanka are senior advisors with security clearances, ostensibly tasked with implementing policy and changing the world in which we live. They can’t even take care of a simple personal errand. Melania can’t follow simple directions and Trump doesn’t know when he was born, apparently. It boggles the mind to speculate how these people might fare if they had to actually perform acceptably at a normal job every day, do their own laundry, prepare their own meals, get the oil changed, etc. These people are incompetent. Looking good, with lots of help, is their sole attribute.
Whatever the outcome in the Dec 12 Alabama Senate election, let us never forget that the so-called President of the United States had a choice — he could support:
Let us never forget this fact: The so-called President chose the child-molester. He was not alone because many other Republicans also supported the child-molester who praises slavery.
