One thing I’ll say about living in the Trump era, waking up is an adventure. You don’t know what batshit headline is going to hit you in the head first thing in the morning, and this one takes the prize for June 29 — so far. It’s only ten o’clock, let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Al Jazeera:

Iran has issued an arrest warrant and asked Interpol for help in detaining US President Donald Trump and dozens of others it believes carried out the drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad.

Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said on Monday that Trump, along with more than 30 others Iran accuses of involvement in the January 3 attack that killed General Qassem Soleimani, face “murder and terrorism charges”, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported.

Alqasimehr did not identify anyone else sought other than Trump, but stressed Iran would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends.

The U.S. Envoy, Brian Hook, has called it a propaganda stunt. He says, “This is a political nature. This has nothing to do with national security, international peace or promoting stability … It is a propaganda stunt that no-one takes seriously.”

It is highly unlikely that Interpol is actually going to arrest Trump, since it’s police work does not include “undertaking any intervention or activities of a political” nature — although I love the image of Interpol arresting Trump and perp walking him into custody and then him appearing at the Hague.

Well, let’s see what this week brings. Last week we had Aaron Zelinsky tell Congress how the DOJ was asked to ignore the rule of law and treat Roger Stone specially, we had Trump go on Fox News and tell Sean Hannity that Joe Biden was going to win, then COVID-19 spiked, while protesters toppled a statue of Andrew Jackson, followed by the New York Times bombshell about the Afghans being paid a bounty by Russia to kill American soldiers and then to top it off, we had Trump retweet a supporter shouting White Power! at a group of protesters.

I have stopped saying Trump can’t get any lower. If we all wake up tomorrow in Atlantis, it won’t be a surprise.

It bothers me when people say “Don’t pay attention to this — he’s trying to distract from THAT.” How can you figure out what the distraction allegedly is and what the real damaging thing is? It’s like one big clot of slime.

You have described this as a sh**-show and I submit it is a shi**-storm. My grandfather had an expression, he would say “blizzard sh**”. At the time, I thought of so much feces flying in the air, that you couldn’t see. I think that is apropos for current times.

It’s what needs to happen but never will. Although if he keeps racking up international crimes it just might. His whole response on the virus is criminal. His actions in Ukraine are there. And I know his actions on the Kurds comes under this. And that is just off the top of my head.

How about the “Triad of evil”, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld while they’re at it.
I don’t see Drumpf leaving the country, assuming he’s not in federal custody in six months.

This has to be the funniest thing to come out of the tRump debacle! Will the Iranians send for palace guards to put their knees on tRump’s neck until he says, “I can’t breathe”? Will they put him in a cage with no soap or toothpaste or…a COMB…or DIAPERS? 😱

No cellphone, no makeup, no golden toilet, and he’ll have to eat VEGETABLES.

PR stunt or not, this one is delightful–just when “HE” thinks it can’t get worse, welp, it does. For him. Payback is hell.

The bottom hasn’t been hit. Wish it had. Bounty on military – check. The only thing this will do will have 45 start spouting more bomb them bull shit. He won’t like it. But I want more of anything that he won’t like.

A couple years ago I stopped thinking he couldn’t go lower. Now I just wonder how disgusting and frightening the next thing he does will be.
