I don’t believe it, the stupid shit just did it again! It seems like only yesterday, but was actually a whopping 3-4 days ago that I wrote about Trump trying to elevate his position in history by comparing himself to past presidents like FDR, George W Bush and Abraham Lincoln. And in doing so, he invited a serious comparison, which showed him to be the totally pathetic loser that he actually is.
Well, he’s baaaaack. In taking a rather premature victory lap over the dropping of charges against the traitor Michael Flynn, premature because it is quite possible that Judge Emmett Sullivan will give the Trump Department of Selective Justice a whole ration of shit over this, Trump went on the Trump Propaganda Network to toot his own horn. Trump threatened that there was likely a lot more to come when it came to attempting to rewrite history, Nazi style, and then he went off the deep end;
I learned a lot from history. I’ve studied history, quite a lot. And I learned a lot from Richard Nixon. And NiXon was right, never back down, and never fire people.
Sweet Jesus, where do I even start with this one? Well, for starters, I was totally unaware that there was a Fox News History Channel out there, this must be where Trump did his historical research. And of course the curator of the FUX history archives is none other than Bill O’Reilly. Because if he had actually looked at serious American history, he’d realize that the moniker “Tricky Dick: was not an affectionate one, but he would have also learned that up until January 20th, 2017 Richard Nixon was reviled as the most corrupt, immorlal, unethical president in American history.
But it turns out that this one is actually a twofer. And if I’m Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, or Roger Stone, hearing El Pendejo Presidente compare himself to Nixon has already sent shivers up my spine, and an icy pit in my stomach. Especially Roger Stone, who actually cut his political chops with Nixon, and reveres him. Cuz like, history and stuff.
Like Trump, Nixon had a faithful cadre of true believers around him, men who, like Michael Cohen, would take a bullet for the president. Men like John Dean, Herb Kalmbach, John Mitchell, HR Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, and G Gordon Liddy. All of them got caught up in Watergate in one form or another, and all were prosecuted, pleaded guilty or went to trial, and were convicted. And what happened after that? They all went off to fucking prison! That’s right, Nixon, feeling the political heat from Watergate cut them loose. He made no attempt to either pardon nor commute the sentences of any of them.
So here’s a little helpful hint for the history hack in the Oval Office. If you’re trying to engender loyalty and support from your troops, maybe best not to align yourself to a former president who threw an enthusiastic thumbs down when the hangman had his hand on the lever. Just sayin’.
