Rashida Tlaib: Sweet & Sweary!
Crivvens! Jings! And Help Ma Boab! Happy New Year etc… We managed to make it into 2019 relatively unscathed by Xmas excess and spent New Years Eve in the yurt reading books on economics. Rock on Tommy! Anyhooots…
This blog has been covering Donald Trump’s recent problems and January finds him up to the socks in keech! And it’s not getting better. We heard a couple of choice quotes yesterday from some Washington politico called Harry Reid who said ‘you can’t legislate when you have a chief executive who’s weird,’ and that ‘he’s the worst president we’ve ever had who sucks blood from the necks of children.’ Admittedly some of this may have got confused in translation but you get the general, right?
This blogger has absolutely nothing against anything weird and, in fact, the weirder the better, but Trump has really weirded us out so we again have to plagiarise Hunter Thompson’s phrase to declare that ‘When the going gets weird, the weird turn Prez.’ Cos things be bad for the crispy fried comb-over and they’re getting extra-badder. At the time of writing there are 17 separate investigations into El Trumpo’s dodgy doings and a dismal precedent was set in December 2018 when the Trump Foundation was forced to close after revelations that Trump used $3m of the charity’s money to fund his presidential campaign. This is Trump’s MO: using other peoples’ money to solve his financial problems; seeing political donations as gifts to him personally; and buying Tesco’s own crisps rather than Pringles.
‘Ladies! It’s almost this thick!’
In case ye didnae know, Trump and the Republicans have lost control of the Senate (which is like the House of Commons) after the mid-term elections when various racists sobered up and said ‘did we vote for THAT?’ The House speaker is a Democrat and they are in the majority and can vote down nutty schemes like the Mexican wall/smoke-screen/force-field that Shredded Wheat bouff insists on pushing through. It’s gonna be an interesting 2019. There is also the shameful cowardice of House Republicans who are refusing to speak out against the increasingly out-of-control and unpredictable prez. A bizarre press conference 2 days ago saw The Great Donzo free associate solo for about 90 minutes, bouncing around all manner o’ shite to the mass puzzlement of, well anyone who watched it. The Democrats will be waiting for the troublesome Mueller investigation into Trump’s doings to conclude before deciding their next move. Ideally, he will be impeached, forced to resign, then be charged as the fucken criminal motherfucker he really is before being locked up in some ghastly federal dungeon with no tanning facilities.
Be Seeing You!
