Imagine - you were hoping he'd stop at 4 years.  Now you know he is going 8.  And may lobby for more....

I’m hoping he’ll stop fucking up at a thousand miles per hour. All this stuff he does is a distraction while the GOP donor class literally loot the treasury and fuck over future generations.

For some reason you’re skipping and squealing like that pig in the Geico commercials... no, screw that. This is what you want. You want “Law and Order” as long as you’re in the preferred group.

Achtung, y’all...

There’s still good odds that Eric catches him on his Guggenheim toilet by Father’s Day and puts a crossbow bolt through him, a la Tireon Lannister. That would make for a very Trumpy news cycle and start a needed national conversation around mental health and heredity.

I’m not saying it would be an angry thing, dad could easily be mistaken for a three toed sloth in a gaudy bathroom at three AM. After the fact, he would be very broken up about it.

DO you think the special counsel knows that the guy who was president of Panama when trump put his tower up there is fighting extradition for corruption charges in a Miami detention center? Think he sent any genius deputy attorneys down to help him sift his recollections of his glory days?

Trump inc. and the Trump administration are definitely guided by similar management principles

It is hard to be optimistic about the future of gun control when we are faced with our history, but this puts a smile on my face and makes me think it is only very unlikely and not totally impossible that we could see it before my kids are ready for AARP or at least social security retirement age (70).

You are going to probably get an attempt at window dressing with NRA secret blessing and token resistance after republican primaries in a session before congress breaks to go campaigning. If they go as far to bring it up, because the feel real pressure they could be further pressured to make it more substantive then they had originally intended. They could become even less popular by fighting that pressure off and holding the Moscow Fox NRA line. This could help build on a November shellacking that not even the expected GOP & Russian ratfucking can contain, leading to a very different congress with a novel understanding of its prerogatives and its available and appropriate levers as a coequal branch of government.

Most crossbows, purchased for protection, end up being used on family members.  Hence the name...

It would be nice to imagine Bob having the manpower to follow all the poisonous tendrils of Trumpian corruption.

These might be the few jobs the Obese Excrescence promised that he actually delivers. Those coal miners shoulda gone to law school. Good healthy jobs that will outlast the Unfit Git’s time in office, right through sentencing on the tertiary level scumbags is complete, then new jobs for their minders in federal pens.
