In front of the entire world, President Donald John Trump is once again failing his leadership function as he craps all over the FBI and Justice Department. During a meeting with the nation’s top military brass where they are gather for the purpose of discussing a tense international situation, Trump instead veered off into a rant about how unfair it is that the FBI is picking on his personal lawyer, aka Trump’s fixer.

As is always his MO, Trump considers his backside (there is no space between him and his cooked lawyer) far more important than critical issues of state. And so our “making America Great again” (MAGA) president is flailing around looking for others to blame for his pathetic incompetence.

A few days ago reporters asked Trump on Air Force One about the $130, 000 payment to porn star “Stormy” Daniels. The president arrogantly shot back, “ask my Lawyer.” This perked up the ears of the FBI that then quickly obtained a very high bar subpoena for storming the office of his attorney. And now ruthless Don is crying all over the place about how unfair it is that he and his bagman are being treated.

One of these days the Donald is going to get it through his thick scull that it’s not good to keep badmouthing law enforcement agencies that have subpoena power over you — too bad.
