Twit Declares Victory, Takes Twit Victory Lap

The dust is starting to settle, but I’m amazed that the press, even and including allegedly librul MSNBC, spent a few news cycles falling for Team Trump’s bluster and spin. Geez.

You’d have thought the pope himself had lain hands upon the crusty orange thing that sits above Trump’s skull … anyway, of course they were going to loudly grasp whatever straws William Barr threw in their direction. That’s their way…and that’s the GOP way, too.

The country is, as we all know, divided. The hard core Trumpeters won’t budge (about the only thing chronic liar Trump says that has a grain of truth — a grain — is that he could shoot someone and not lose his base). Yep.

And that’s Trump’s strategy, to the extent he’s got one: divide the country, play loud and long to the base, hope to come up with another inside straight, or, with incumbency, a bare plurality.

Welcome to campaign season, and get ready for a long and ugly ride.
