March madness might refer to the college basketball post season games, but it clearly describes the current state of events in Washington and the world.
First the truly extraordinary hearings with FBI Director Comey and NSA Director Rogers. As I watched it all I could think was Trump is in trouble. That tweet two weeks ago accusing Obama of wiretapping was way over board. Then the attempt to blame the British compounded things. There is no evidence at all to support that tweet, but Trump is sticking to it. Crazy statement and crazier to keep it going.
The hearings destroyed Trump on the wiretaps and possible Russian connections. No doubt you have heard the news. Here’s our summary:
1. There’s no evidence that Obama tapped his phones. Zero. Bad news one.
2. The FBI is investigating real connections between Trump’s campaign associates and the Russian government. Bad news two.
3. The FBI Director said that Putin hated Hillary and wanted to hurt her.
4. Democrats are sure that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia.
5. It appears intelligence officials don’t think there’s evidence that the meddling influenced votes.
6. The FBI is going to be very quiet about the investigation until finished.
7. Republicans are trying hard to focus on the leaks to the press. They believe an Obama official is behind them.
Except for the last point the rest are very negative for Trump. The FBI wouldn’t even acknowledge they are investigating the leaks. A bad day for Trump and team.
The Gorsuch Hearings:
We will make this simple. A disgrace, the manner in which the judge was treated and questioned. Disgraceful that our elected officials now think they must act in such a despicable manner. If we don’t get back to civility the future is bleak. This is an honorable man with impeccable characteristics. The treatment is prep for the next nominee, we get it, but still disgraceful.
The Intolerable Left:
So Eric Trump announces his wife is pregnant and they are having a son. Chelsea Handler wrote this when she heard.
On Monday, Eric Trump announced that his wife Lara is pregnant with their first child. Handler responded by tweeting: “I guess one of @realDonaldTrump’s sons is expecting a new baby. Just what we need. Another person with those jeans [sic]. Let’s hope for a girl.”— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) 3:27 PM – 20 Mar 2017
Handler evidently meant to write “genes,” a point not lost on Trump Jr., who slammed the comic on social media.
“Attacking the announcement of someone’s first pregnancy would seem below the belt to most, but sadly that’s no longer the case,” Trump Jr. wrote on Facebook. ” So much for the party of science.”
My response to @ChelseaHandler and her sick tweet targeted at our family. So much for the “tolerant left!
— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) 8:13 PM – 20 Mar 2017
Handler later apologized for her spelling mistake, but not for the attack on Donald Trump’s granchild.“Sorry about spelling mistake. I meant “genes,” not “jeans.” I’m a little stoned. What’s your excuse?”
Did you see and hear this on the MSM?
In the meantime:
In the meantime, a hero of the intolerant left and one they fought not to be extradited back to the U.S. is back in the news. Roman Polanski who drugged and raped a 13 year old girl wants a deal to come back to the U.S.
“Roman Polanski is willing to come back to the US to settle his 40-year-old child-rape case but wants assurances he won’t face prison time, his lawyer said Monday. Mr. Polanski just wants to settle this case, wants it over with,” lawyer Harland Braun told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon at a hearing. Braun wants a sentence of time served.
Polanski served 42 days in jail, but fled to France in 1978.
What do you think? I am uncompromising here and want him locked up. The intolerable left supports him, yet they attack Gorsuch because he might be against Roe vs. Wade. Think about that. No abortions, but rape of a 13 year old is okay if he’s one of yours.
