Michael Flynn resigned. 99% of the American people have never heard of this guy, but it’s huge news because he spoke with the Russian ambassador, US spies recorded it, and he didn’t tell Vice President Pence that he spoke to them. The War Street Journal is up in arms:
In just a few weeks, the nascent administration is being weighed down from within, sidetracked by dishonesty and potential ethical lapses as well as attacks from his own supporters and fellow Republicans.
Dishonesty and ethical lapses? Oh my God! I just can’t imagine a presidential administration that isn’t 100% honest and ethical. Impeach Trump now!
John McCain can’t stand it:
“It’s a dysfunctional White House, and nobody knows who’s in charge,”
Whatever asshole. Flynn wanted good relations with Russia so he had to go even though he was a warmongering maniac when it came to most other countries. Can’t say I’ll really miss him all that much, but let’s just pray we don’t get some straight up anti-Russian Israel-first neocon as a replacement.
This is what Trump gets for surrounding himself with too many Establishment Republicans who would be more comfortable with a Mike Pence or John McCain than they are with Trump who they view as a threat. Most of his own subordinates will stop at nothing to derail many of his stated objectives, particularly his foreign policy which isn’t nearly anti-Russian or generally belligerent enough for them.
Can Trump stand up to these bastards? I have serious doubts that he’s up to it. And even if he does, they can always manufacture some scandal involving the dreaded Putin to shut him up or possibly even drive him from office.
