Not The Boss Of Me

From Fox News - because I want to stay fair and balanced.

Speaking from the Rose Garden alongside others on his coronavirus taskforce, Trump said he "would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter." The holiday this year lands on April 12.

I think that he can want what he wants, but he’s not actually the boss of a virus. You can assign it all the “action items” you want to, if it just gives you the finger instead, you can’t fire it.

The universe is not made up of his employees.

Still Sad

It’s already here. I’m feeling like he really doesn’t understand this.

Have it Your Way

Fine, you’re a witch.
I believe that you’re a witch, and that we should hunt you.
Where’s Witchfinder Major Pulsifer?

Rubber and Glue Defense

The “I’m rubber and you’re glue” tactic doesn’t actually work in reality.

Trump says those who gave info to the whistleblower are like spies, reports say

"I want to know who's the person, who's the person who gave the whistleblower the information? Because that’s close to a spy," Trump said, according to The Los Angeles Times. "You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart? Right? The spies and treason, we used to handle it a little differently than we do now."


Oh, no, sir, oh no. You do not get to use those words.

Our President sounds like Tony Soprano. This is crap.

Bad at Crime

Trump Instructs McGahn to Defy Subpoena and Skip House Testimonyw.nytimes.com

The President telling people not to comply with subpoenas just makes it look like he’s not smart enough to protect himself against direct questioning. The smartest, best people should have a cover story, shouldn’t they?

Humans Should All be Held to the Same Standards.

A Partisan Call to Arms

"My family and my name have been totally and permanently destroyed by vicious and false additional accusations," he told the committee in a fiery opening statement.

You know who else's family has borne vicious and false accusations? The Clintons. Ever hear of "Pizzagate"? No? How about Benghazi, or "her emails!"?

High profile life means taking a lot of bad press. I don't know if it's fair, but don't pretend that it's just for you.

Also, I think that you actually did these things. I might have been willing to look past it if you had just admitted that teenagers can be terrible humans. I still believe that people can change. I may even believe that this guy did. His unwillingness to admit flaws, though, it makes me mistrust him.

I'm very nervous about this. I'm a very expensive customer, these days.
