Well, here it comes. Here comes the night. Here comes the night. Van Morrison

Is anybody else having an intense sensation of deja vu? Didn’t we hear this exact same thing with respect to Michael Cohen? And now he’s in jail? It seems that when the laws close in on Donald Trump’s cohorts, they suddenly become vague, shadow figures, people he used to know maybe, perhaps in another life, and they did something for him, once or twice, between their other business interests. The FBI raided Cohen’s office — bam, Trump didn’t know him. The FBI arrested Giuliani’s henchmen, same exact thing. Anybody contemplating becoming Trump’s next personal attorney, really should sit up and pay close attention to this. Raw Story:

“President Trump is just asked and talking to reporters on the south lawn of the White House as he gets ready to board Marine One — and asked by Pamela Brown whether or not Rudy Giuliani is still his lawyer,” Blitzer said announcing the video.

“Well, I don’t know,” Trump said. “I haven’t spoken to Rudy. I spoke to him yesterday briefly. He’s a very good attorney and he has been my attorney, yeah, sure.”

CNN reporter Gloria Borger said that Giuliani said that he still is Trump’s attorney when he was reached for comment.

Quick, somebody get the countdown clocks wound up and ticking, and somebody else put a big water slide on the West Wing, so Rudy can be thrown down and out as swiftly and efficiently as possible. Here comes the night and here comes the knife, too, right in Giuliani’s back. If he doesn’t see it coming, he’s lost more than his once-touted legal acumen.

So…looks like my original bet on Rudy being the next maladministration casualty was the correct one after all.

As to the next lawyer, well, I’m reminded of a really good line in the third season of The Tudors from a possible prospect for Henry VIII’s fourth wife. She rather tartly observes that if she had two heads (don’t forget what happened to Anne Boleyn), she’d gladly agree to the match.

Henry had quite a record with his wives: divorced, died, beheaded, divorced, beheaded, and the last survived. I’m surprised any would marry him, after Anne B.

The second divorce, Anne of Cleeves, lived the longest and had arguably the happiest life. She gave Henry no trouble and got to spend the rest of her days as a wealthy, independent woman much loved by her adopted country.

Oh, my gosh! I was just thinking that as I was reading this post. If The orange blob does get rid of him, I hope Rudy sings like a bird!!

Rudy is coming off as a raving lunatic lately. God knows what will come out of his mouth next.

Mental note: Must remember to send ‘thoughts and prayers’ towards Rudy.

Sometime.

Over at the mothership there are a lot of jokes about Rudy and buses. (And a few about NosfeRudy.)
