The Coronation is Complete: The Republicans Have Their King

Good Day World!

After three years of groveling and lying for Trump, Republican lawmakers have openly crowned him as King of the Un-United States of Amerika.

The coronation was this week when Pence and the White House told Congress and the Senate that Trump doesn't have to account for why he suddenly decided to assassinate the second most powerful man in the Iranian regime, putting America on a war standing.

Update: US targeted another Iranian official on same day as Soleimani, but the operation was unsuccessful.

This latest assumption of complete power for Trump has even pissed off some Republicans like Sen. Mike Lee from Utah. His reaction to the briefing from Trump's minions was one of outrage:

"It was probably the worst briefing I've seen at least on a military issue in the nine years I've served in the United States Senate," Lee told reporters right after the briefing.

"It was insulting and demeaning," he added while stressing he was in favor of a new war powers resolution.

Despite Trump's massive display of disdain for every law in the land and the Constitution, Republicans plan on protecting him in the Senate now that he's been impeached.

Moscow Mitch's open disdain for the whole impeachment process is clearly demonstrated by his announcement of working with the White House and being in lock-step with Trump.

Trump's acquittal in the Senate was the proposed coronation moment, but when given an opportunity to back Trump's attempt at Wag the Dog, they jumped the gun and prostrated themselves for him despite the risk of war.

I'm waiting for Trump to announce his Round Table of Orange Knights is going to replace Congress and the Senate. I'm guessing Rudy Giuliani is going to be named the official Court Jester soon.

The coronation is complete. The Republicans have their king.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
