Confused

Here’s the part I am confused about.

A man who is under investigation for selling the United States Presidential election to Russia is bragging that he is keeping another man from getting a job because the other man protested by not putting his hand over his heart at the national anthem.

See, I don’t get that.  Where the hell is the rhyme or reason to that?

President Trump patted himself on the back Monday night for allegedly helping to keep former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick unemployed.

Yeah, he literally said his uncontrollable bully tweet habit is keeping Kaepernick unemployed.

“It was reported that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump,” Trump said. “Do you believe that? I just saw that. I just saw that.”

The President of the United States is a lying tweet bully.

Ya know, Trump has accomplished nothing.  He’s under FBI investigation, he has insulted every world leader whose name he can pronounce, his health care bill is flopping around gasping like a fish on land, and his budget is DOA.  But, he’s keep Colin Kaepernick unemployed!  There’s that.

Let me tell you something.  I would rather have Colin Kaepernick for president.  At least Kaepernick has a core set of values.

Thanks to Dennis for the heads up.

High Crime

March 07, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Noah Feldman, Bloomberg columnist and constitutional law professor at Harvard, published an op-ed yesterday that raised an issue that I hadn’t considered since SCROTUS’s latest Tweet storm; falsely accusing a former president of an impeachable offense is…wait for it…an impeachable offense.  CJ accused President Obama of ordering the FBI to wiretap the campaign offices at Cheeto Tower which is clearly against a whole host of state and federal laws; if true, those crimes would result in criminal prosecution and impeachment.  It’s not true, of course, and Feldman’s argument is that this accusation is not protected under the First Amendment since defamation is not protected.  Additionally, unless evidence is produced supporting this accusation, the consequences cannot by asymmetrical; that is, a false accusation of an impeachable offense is in itself cause for impeachment of the accuser.

Now, I’m not stupid enough to believe that Congress, dominated by drooling Neanderthals and idiots, will do anything approaching an impeachment proceeding, but it’s just one more thing to add to the list of offenses that grows daily.
