The Trump Republican Cluster Fuck Era Is Upon Us

In todays press conference President Elect Trump put front and center a female lawyer from a high-power office of some two thousand lawyers to try and bamboozle the world into thinking down is up. The circus drove Constitutional lawyers and law professor up the wall with its pronouncements of idiocy, warning that Trump and his paid flunkies are about to crash the nation into a great brick wall, and not one erected along the Mexican border. The American judicial system simply will not tolerate Trump’s conflict of interest slight of hand no matter how much his dog and pony show might impress his naïve supporters.

At the same time Trump continued and accelerated his war against the American intelligence community, calling it a bunch of lying Nazis while at once kissing up to our murderous enemy — Putin. Meanwhile Republicans in congress are twisting themselves into pretzels trying to figure out how they can get away with stripping thirty million folks of health insurance without destabilizing the entire economy and creating a political firestorm. But what can they do after eight years of bad mouthing Obama Care to their crude base?

This Republican Trump administration is quickly building up to become the greatest cluster fuck of American leadership since the eve of the American Civil War in the spring of 1861, only in this instance there is no Lincoln to pull a rabbit out of the hat and save the Union.
