My chirp yesterday was a bit of a downer in that I said that if Trump wins the presidency, the Mar-a-Lago indictment would go away. Then, BOOM! The 49-page indictment was released. It happened around noon my time and I had a sudden understanding of how my relatives, in Australia, enjoy Christmas, in their midsummer.
The above image is just a tiny part of the indictment, and it is not even the most damming part of the indictment. Trump was actually quoted as saying that I could have declassified the document when I was President, anymore. The indictment shows pictures of boxes of classified document in Mar-a-Lago bathrooms. Bathrooms!
The Trumpkins will find any way to explain away the indictment. they will stay with Trump. But I am sure that Trump lost a lot of independent votes, yesterday. He will never be President again. How can you be a President if you are in prison? The only catch now would be Ron DeSantis becoming President. He has already said that he will pardon Trump.
I spent an enjoyable half hour (all I can take) watching Fox Entertainment. Many of the anchors admitted this was bad for Trump. I loved watching some of their guest Trump apologists twist themselves like pretzels trying to defend Trump. Of course, they all fell back to the “what about Hillary” mantra.
Then there was Jack ‘when I talk everyone listens’ Smith’s short and sweet news conference.
“We have one set of laws in this country, and they apply to everyone applying those laws, collecting facts, that’s what determines the outcome of an investigation. Nothing more and nothing less.”
Oh, and I forgot to mention that two of Trump’s lawyers, once they saw the indictment, resigned.
Christmas in June. I love it.
