Huddled in a corner in a faux Oval Office in Mar-a-Largo a desperate criminal is crying out.
Coup Coup Trump is sending out the call to his minions that it's time for a "regime change" today after posting on his ironically named Truth Social that he will be arrested next Tuesday.
He knows he's going to be criminally indicted for his handling of a hush-money payment during his 2016 presidential campaign.
What prompted Trump's prediction of a Tuesday indictment is questionable.
Was there a leak from the Manhattan Attorney's office?
Were Trump's lawyers informed that Tuesday would be Donny's Big Adventure and they told their client?
Or is this just Trump's preemptive attempt to rally his minions and make sure their frothing properly by next week?
One thing is for sure. Trump is ready to attack America, democracy, and the rule of law. Right now.
Local authorities are preparing for the worst when Trump has to come to a federal building to get fingerprinted and his mug shot taken for posterity. I hear there's already bids going out to get the first copy of that photo session.
The response from McCarthy's merry band of morons in the House has been predictable. "The justice system is politically motivated," the MAGA lawmakers whined to their mindless base.
One of the most hypocritical cowards among Republicans (he's right there with McCarthy), Mike Pence told the extreme right media outlet Breitbart that, "It (the upcoming indictment) reeks of the kind of political prosecution that we endured back in the day of the Russian hoax and the whole impeachment over a phone call."
But as we all know now it wasn't a hoax. Mueller's investigation was strangled by Trump's corrupt AG Bill Barr.
No one put the current situation better than Rep. Eric Swalwell when he tweeted (in response to McCarthy promising to investigate Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg), "The guy who created a committee to look into 'weaponization of government' is using his powers in government to stop an independent prosecution of his boss."
With those seditionist lawmakers and the mindless minions of his cult Trump is declaring war on democracy and the rule of law in a desperate attempt to avoid justice and accountability.
Anyone with an IQ over 100 knows that.
When the dam bursts with this first criminal indictment of the former president others will be following in the months ahead.
As it stands, somehow in all of the chaos caused by the most corrupt president in US history there will be accountability. Regardless of Trump's threats.
