Yes, I Think They Might Eat Their Own Children
July 11, 2017
A clip off the old block, Donald Jr may have said too much. In claiming he met with a Russian lawyer to get “dirt” on the Clinton campaign he admitted to a crime. A campaign is not allowed to accept anything of value from a foreign source – not anything, not cash, not free research, not Amazon gift cards – nothing.
The young Donald’s confession started innocently enough. At first, he said he never met with any Russian sources, just like everyone else in the Trump campaign. But, after the press disclosed evidence to the contrary, he owned up and said he went to a short trivial meeting with a Russian, about adoption.
Then, when asked why he brought two senior campaign staff members to a trivial meeting about adoption policy he blurted out that he thought the meeting was going to be about getting intelligence about Clinton campaign. Oops!
He went on to claim no big deal, campaigns gather opposition research all the time, and besides, he didn’t even know she was Russian. That claim blew up when the media disclosed an email that was sent to the Trump campaign assuring them of the value of the lawyer’s info, because the information came from the Kremlin. Oops!
With each statement Donald Jr dug himself in deeper – sound familiar?
What’s been a little odd is no counter tweet from the old man. The Donald was quick to defend Mike Flynn and defends him to this day. He’s counter attacked when Ivanka was criticized, hit back when the son-in-law was mocked and has even defended Vladimir Putin’s good name. But, so far, silence about Donald Jr.
The deafening quiet on this topic has made the media a little nervous, kind of speculative. Could the Donald be preparing to throw Donald Jr under the buss? Is the Trump organization about to blame everything on little Donald, hopefully ending the whole Russian thing – with a child sacrifice? Could the Donald act in such a Game of Thrones manner?
Of course, he could. And why not, Junior’s the perfect fall guy. Let’s face it, anyone who gets off by doing this:
deserves whatever the Donald does to him. Let the games begin.
It’s been two-hundred-forty-five days since Putin elected Trump to the presidency, and the republic thinks about time the blood sport were turned back onto the tyrant, and his devil spawn.
In Peace and Justice,
