Have you noticed the similarity yet? Just in the week since the Trump indictments were unsealed, the entire Trump GOP has run off the rails. And it’s obvious when the MAGAt’s are improvising so desperately that they don’t even realize that they’re invalidating their own arguments.
In an interview this week, Senior Iowa GOP Senator Chuck Grassley, the former Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee was asked if he had read the Trump indictment. His reply was No, because I’m not a qualified legal mind. Chuckles, you’re not a qualified human mind, but you used to grill the Attorney General.
Grassley stepped in it again, talking about a classified document he had seen that was a smoking gun if it was true, and contained a tape of incriminating dirt on the Biden’s and Burisma. The smoking gun turned out to be a standard FBI field contact form, a tip somebody came in and provided them. The tip wasn’t even investigated. And there is no proof that the tape even exists.
A GOP House chair avowed this weekend that It didn’t matter if the allegations against Biden were true, and even Gym Bag Jordan had to admit, under withering questioning from FUX and Friends that he couldn’t track down any of his highly touted whistleblowers. Like a fighter jet with a missile on its tail, the indictment is so damaging that the GOP is throwing off chaff in a last ditch effort to get away from the missile. As usual, they’re chasing the base.
But if you’ve been watching the news coverage since the release of the indictment, and especially since the arraignment, especially on conservative news outlets like FUX News, you’re starting to see something strange. Some of Trump’s lawyers are starting to show up to reassure the faithful. But it’s not working. Because they aren’t expounding all of these sound legal reasons why Trump is going to kick Jack Smith’s ass in court. Like the GOP MAGAt’s, they’re dumbing down excuses for the Trump base instead.
They’re throwing up a bunch of $10 legal words to the sheeple that tries to reinforce Trump’s lame ass excuses that they already knew won’t hold up water in court. And they’re doing it for the same reason that the MAGAt’s are.
Because that’s what Trump is going to say. I wrote a day or so ago that some Trump Mar-A-Lago lawyers have never spoken to other Trump Mar-A-Lago lawyers. Riddle me this. When’s the last time you saw a team win the Super Bowl when they only practiced together twice before the game? Hint. Never. Defending a complicated case requires teamwork and coordination, and who appears to be holding his hand on the tiller? Legal ignoramus Boris Epshteyn.
And these guys are about to get a boxcar size load of documents dumped on them by the prosecution, and they don’t seem to even have a system in place to break down and distribute it sensibly, much less a way to coordinate and disseminate the results of their readings. And Jack Smith is already showing that he is going to try to use the judge to keep these jokers on the shortest possible time choker chain.
And I hate this. Look, personally I have no doubt that Traitor Tot is going down, the case appears almost airtight. But when he goes down, I want him to have been represented by the best possible lawyers, not the bargain basement castoffs. I don’t want him whining in appellate court about inadequate representation. But this is what happens when you don’t pay your bills. And at least for the moment his lawyers seem to be more interested in bucking up the spirits of his base than finding a way to keep his fat ass out of jail. Lay down with dogs, wake up with fleas.
