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.”
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.
How bad has week four of the Trump administration been? A member of Trump’s Mar-A-Lago club took a picture with the nuclear football and posted it on social media… that’s not even the most troubling event of the week.
This is a tough one to write. In the wee hours of November 9th, it was announced Donald Trump would be our nation’s 45th President of the United States. Typing that sentence, I feel as if I’m living in the world of Demolition Man… and we all got served a rat burger.
