Two Weeks Notice

How bad have the last two weeks been for the Trump administration? Even if zero evidence of collusion is found between Donald Trump and Russia regarding the 2016 election, he could still find himself between a rock and a hard place. Or as one senior official told The Daily Beast: “I don’t see how Trump isn’t completely fucked.”

The Ugly Truth

I first saw the news on social media of James Comey’s termination as FBI Director on Tuesday afternoon. I thought it was a joke, much like Comey himself did when he learned of the end of his tenure… on television.

Trump’s latest action may be his most devastating yet. The 45th President has undermined the fourth estate, attacked the judicial branch and is now destroying the integrity of the very law enforcement agency investigating him.

The only thing more preposterous than Comey’s firing is the White House’s reasoning behind it.

The Desolation of Smaug

The first 2016 presidential debate was like watching a political role-play of Greedo shaking down Han Solo in the Mos Eisley Cantina. By the end of the night, Clinton walked away tossing a coin to moderator Lester Holt saying “Sorry about the mess.”
