We’ve all seen the Simpson’s meme, “Man shouts at cloud.” Trump did a variation on that today on the White House lawn, incoherently declaiming over and over, “Man gets appointed by a deputy, who never got a vote,” interspersed with the usual repetition of how “incredible” the 2016 election was, 63 Million votes, so on and so forth, Trump’s broken record.
Clearly, he’s upset, and naturally, it goes without saying, that he has no remote clue how government works. NATURALLY, Mueller “never got a vote.” He’s not an elected official. He doesn’t need to be an elected official to do the job of the special counsel, to which he was appointed — and lawfully so — by Rod Rosenstein. All Trump did today was showcase his abysmal ignorance of the way things work, one more time.
“No collusion, I have no idea when it will be released,” the president said. “It’s interesting that a man gets appointed by a deputy and he writes a report, you know, never figured that one out. Man gets appointed by a deputy and he writes a report.”
“I had the greatest electoral victory in the history in the country, tremendous success,” Trump added. “Tens of millions of voters and now somebody’s going to write a report who never got a vote. We’ll see what the report says. Let’s see if it’s fair. I have no idea when it’s going to be released.”
“I just won an election with 63 million votes or so, 63 million. I had 206 to 223 in the electoral college, 306 to 223, and I’m saying to myself, ‘wait a minute, I just won one of the greatest elections of all time in the history of this country,’ and even you will admit that and now I have someone writing a report that never got a vote?” Trump said. “It’s called the Mueller report. So explain that because my voters don’t get it, and I don’t get it.”
The explanation is simple, you weapons grade plum, as the Scots have been known to call their least favorite American cousin. You are the architect of your own adversity. You should have never listened to your son in law and fired Comey. By firing Comey, you and you alone set up the situation by which Mueller was hired to do his investigation.
And if Comrade Cheeto doesn’t remember, the rest of us do, the week he fired Comey he bragged to his Russkie buddies in the Oval Office, “I got rid of a nut job.” And the press was not invited to the Oval Office that day in May, it was just Trump, Kislyak, and Lavrov — but any intimation of Russian collusion upsets Trump so much?
In any event, take a listen to the video, because Trump is bouncing off the walls.
