Now that at least one grand jury has been impaneled by special prosecutor Robert Mueller, the wingnuts are becoming hysterical. More than usual. Now that there are actual Americans sitting in formal judgment of Donald Trump’s bizarre and extra-legal behavior, not to mention ‘business’ machinations, the poop has gotten real.
President Trump defenders have officially found a new narrative to delegitimize Robert Mueller’s inquiry into Russia’s election interference. Newt Gingrich denounced Washington, D.C. as the location of Mueller’s grand jury Sunday, suggesting it would be biased due to Trump’s poor electoral turnout in the city.
Do your worst, Newt.
President Trump got 68.63% in West Virginia, 4.8% in Washingtoin DC. Guess where Mueller has a grand jury? Guess how biased it will be?

Talk about political hegemony. Justice is a motif, apparently. The alleged crimes occurred in Washington D.C. – but so what? The legal issue that really matters is this one: Did they vote for him? Reason number bajillion why liberals are corrupt. Trump can’t be left to the haters, he should be tried by a jury of his peers – billionaires and golf pals please, preferably from Texas. If not, we’ll accept his children (…not
Meg Griffin Tiffany, cuz yecch).
Dershowitz, who has become an ardent Trump defender the past six months, argued on WABC Radio that Washington’s Democratic tilt would be unfavorable to Trump and his administration.
“It gives the prosecutor the power to indict in the District of Columbia, which is a district that is heavily Democratic, and would have a jury pool very unfavorable to Trump and the Trump administration,” Dershowitz said on the radio. “So it gives the prosecutor a tremendous tactical advantage.”
The fanbois can’t pull their heads out the elephant’s ass. The whole world isn’t American politics, okay? Unlike Dershowitz, I don’t necessarily want to send somebody to jail just because I voted against him for city council.
Some folks won’t even bother to pretend Mueller is a fakakta fawn/foal rapist.
WOULD YOU EVEN CARE IF HE WAS GUILTY?
The stock market is up, unemployment is down and the economy seems to be picking up some steam. The streets are mostly safe, the nation is mostly secure and the world is mostly at peace.
So does it matter to you whether or not the president is a crook?
…this is from Fox News. Go ahead, guess the answer. I dares ya.
The answer for a lot of Americans may be no…
Oookay. And when the bailiff carts him away, you’ll be doing…what? Scratching your ass?
As we hear Trump devotees wail that colluding with a hostile foreign power isn’t a crime or cavil that Mueller & Co. might find other crimes unrelated to Russian disruption, what we are really hearing is their acceptance of wrongdoing. This is the big: “So what?”
The underlying argument is that [Clinton] probably did something even worse, so if he lied, cheated and maybe even stole the election. For after all, he would have been only beating Democrats at their own game.
Oh I get it, we’re reminiscing. LOCK HER UP! LOCK HER UP! Well I certainly feel better, how about you? Apparently corruption is now a competitive sport. I doubt Trump will be impeached any time soon, at least not until someone marks a finish line.
Let’s mull this for a bit:
A poll found that 52% of people who identify as or lean Republican said they would support postponing the 2020 election to ensure that only eligible citizens could vote if it was proposed by President Trump.
We’ve gone from ‘…voter what?’ to ‘Voter Fraud!’ to ‘THE FOUNDERZ SUCK!!1!’ Talk about your rock-candy-ribbed patriots.
The survey, conducted by two academics and published in the Washington Post on Thursday, interviewed a sample of 1,325 Americans from June 5-20 and focused on the 650 people who said they were or leaned toward the GOP…
Trump formed the voter integrity commission after saying, without evidence, that up to 3 million to 5 million people voted fraudulently in the 2016 election.
This isn’t surprising to me, but then I remember the seventies. I am reminded of the Great White Dope, some forty-odd years ago:
On Sept. 26, 1973, Buchanan, then a speech writer for Richard Nixon, appeared before the Senate Watergate committee. As far as he was concerned, the committee was on trial. “The mandate that the American people gave to this president and his administration,” said Buchanan, “cannot and will not be frustrated or repealed or overthrown as a consequence of the incumbent tragedy.”
