It has been an exciting and intense couple of weeks what with nuclear war with NK hanging in the balance and Mueller stepping in on Manafort, but that don’t mean we can’t laugh at the OPG when predicted disasters come home to roost!
We are rightly worried about what the Ol’ Pussy Grabber will do in response to North Korea. He is just narcissistic enough and poor enough executive functioning that he could nuke ’em on a whim or he could figger it is a clever political ploy to win the 2018 Congressional elections. North Korea is predictable and stable by comparison.
This week the Ol’ Pussy Grabber has been talking up war with NK. He’s pushing them into a corner, and they will lash out if they believe we are about to attack. With key appointments to State and Defense unnominated, we are flying blindly into a conflagration.
NK perceives the US as an existential threat. The Ol’ Pussy Grabber perceives the Russia-Trump scandal as an existential threat. The intersection of the two is the stuff of nightmares: who prevails, distraction or suicide?
