Who Cut The Chesebro?

This is one of those days when I wish I had Michael F’s photoshop skills. It would have been cool to put a cheesehead hat on Chesebro’s head, but the little finger pointing cheese guy will just have to do.

Along with John Eastman, Kenneth Chesebro was one of the architects of the fake electors scheme that was part of the vast Trumper coup plot conspiracy. The Cheese is Co-Conspirator 5 in the coup case indictment. That means that the Cheese is a bro on indictment watch. It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. #sarcasm

There’s a whole lotta news on the Chesebro front:

Why is the eminent constitutional scholar Cheesed off? As a student at Harvard Law, Chesebro was one of Tribe’s research assistants. The Cheese was also involved in Tribe’s legal efforts on behalf of the Gore campaign after the 2000 election.

In his infamous memo, Chesebro misrepresented Tribe’s views on election challenges, The ones he cited were specific to 2000, not 2020. Team Gore was NOT trying to lie its way to victory. If 2000 were anything like 2022, Vice President Gore could have fucked things up on 1/6/2001. It never occurred to him to mess with the electoral count. He had Laurence Tribe advising him, not some cheesy bro and his little friend Co-Conspirator 2 DBA John Eastman.

Tribe’s piece has a scathing title, Anatomy Of A Fraud: Kenneth Chesebro’s Misrepresentation Of My Scholarship In His Efforts To Overturn The 2020 Presidential Election.

That may be the longest fuck you in American history. Tribe’s article is full of money quotes, this is my personal favorite:

Chesebro’s conduct in the 2020 election is one of the reasons I joined several dozen prominent legal figures in signing onto an ethics complaint against him submitted to the Supreme Court of New York’s attorney grievance committee. That complaint alleged that his “conduct was infused throughout with ‘dishonesty, fraud, deceit, [and] reckless or intentional misrepresentation’ contrary to the core standard of” the rules of professional conduct.

Another day, another polite fuck you from Professor Tribe.

Everything about Chesebro’s legal advice after the election was sleazy:

The existence of the Dec. 6, 2020, memo came to light in last week’s indictment of Mr. Trump, though its details remained unclear. But a copy obtained by The New York Times shows for the first time that the lawyer, Kenneth Chesebro, acknowledged from the start that he was proposing “a bold, controversial strategy” that the Supreme Court “likely” would reject in the end.


But even if the plan did not ultimately pass legal muster at the highest level, Mr. Chesebro argued that it would achieve two goals. It would focus attention on claims of voter fraud and “buy the Trump campaign more time to win litigation that would deprive Biden of electoral votes and/or add to Trump’s column.”

Delay remains Trump’s legal strategy as he stares down the barrel of multiple indictments. He’s so desperate that he falsely accused Fulton County DA Fani Willis of sexual misconduct with a gang leader she was investigating. He will say and do anything to save his worthless ass.

Back to Larry Tribe. He was fuming when he appeared on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show last night:

Hell hath no fury like a constitutional scholar scorned.

Let’s talk about the title. I’m on record as believing that fart jokes are the lowest form of humor. But sometimes you have to cut through the shit and get right to the point. This is one of those times. Besides, I’m as cheesed off as Professor Tribe. We’ll never know what one of Chesebro’s clerical colleagues thinks of him. Why? It’s Justice Elena Kagan, that’s why. The Cheese used to keep better company than John Eastman, Rudy Giuliani, and Sidney Smith.

The post title poses the immortal question, Who Cut The Chesebro? We know the answer: Laurence Tribe cut the Chesebro to the quick.

It’s time to sound The Cheese Alarm. The last word goes to Robyn Hitchcock:

  1. Fart jokes are the most *basic*, *primal*, form of humor.
    Let he who is without gas, throw the first pungent rejection.
