Trump’s Circular Firing Squad Of “Friends”

In Trump’s world when the shit hits the fan it’s every man for himself. Contrary to that old saw, there’s honor among thieves, there ain’t, at least not with the cooks that the Donald plays with. This bunch of pals — the Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Sean Hannity and Rudy Giuliani types — play only to win. These guys take a certain amount of pride in their ability to survive at the expense of others. Indeed, with these self-proclaimed tricksters, backstabbing (same as firing squad) is considered the highest of art forms.

But in the way that prosecutors work up the food chain, squeezing those at the bottom in order to fry the biggie at the top, Tromp is no longer a general part of his circular firing squad of friends, he is now the bulls eye. This is going to be a group backstabbing /firing squad with the Donald furnishing the target back. Who says there is no such thing as karma with Trump? It’s just been building up over the years to one gigantic evening out process called — Muellerization.
