Time To Make Your Predictions About This Coming Week
Good Day World!
What an exciting week we have to look forward to!
Pull up a chair, and have a jolt of Java with me, while we guess what the biggest news events will be this week.
I'm conflicted. There's so many berries to pick off the vine of political mayhem in Washington DC and abroad.
How about the one about Ivanka Trump who went to Peru in her daddy's place for the Summit of the America's?
Peruvian politicians weren't exactly thrilled that Trump wasn't attending the summit, but he assured them he'd send Vice President Pence instead.
Well, they got Pence, but they also got Ivanka and her idiot husband Jared Kushner too. Don't think for a moment that the Peruvians were happy with this arrangement.
I'm guessing it has something to do with the fact that Pence is a putz and nothing more than Trump's evil shadow. Then you have Ivanka.
She's such a low level member of Trump's staff that she doesn't even have a full security clearance, absolutely no true diplomatic experience, doesn't even speak Spanish, and wasn't confirmed by Congress as Secretary of State.
Couple all of that and Trump's racist feelings about Hispanics in general, and I think some feelings were hurt.
I'm just saying.
Remember Friday when the US conducted air strikes against Syria?
Trump's action was hotly debated within hours by his own administration, and Congress wasn't exactly happy that Trump bypassed them like bumps in the road, ignoring the law along the way.
Meanwhile Donny tweeted "Mission Accomplished" and Republicans recoiled with horror because of the negative association with that term first used by President Bush.
Memories of American casualties piling up long after Bush's declaration of victory in Iraq, have been painfully dredged up
by Trump's big mouth.
The term "Mission Accomplished" became a punch line, a telling indication of the administration's gross underestimation of the challenge posed by the conflict.
House staffers in the PR department claimed he was talking about some ship that was done with it's tour in the Gulf...yeah right!
Finally, we can't leave today without predicting the next bombshell to hit Trump in the Stormy case.
So far, we know that Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, had his offices, apartment and home raided by the FBI on a criminal warrant.
Taken on the raid were audio recordings between Stormy's first lawyer and Cohen's, along with others, and personal emails, etc. It was a treasure trove of corruption.
What do you think will be the next big revelation about Trump's efforts to conceal his violations of campaign laws with the Stormy situation, and his collusion with Russia?
