The Daily Combover - June 15, 2017

I know, I know... The Combover definitely spends too much time on witch hunts for Dear Leader's tastes. But, then again, he doesn't have to keep bringing it up himself, does he?

Keep smiling Donnie.


Every single day we get more insanity from Trump on why he's either completely innocent or how this is a total witch hunt. And yet, every day we learn a little more about how his campaign was deeply involved with the Russians and we go another day without him ever criticizing the attacks.

Today, for example, Trump gave us these gems:




Crooked H? Nah. Let's go with Local H with a perfect message to Trump, "you just don't get it."



Because in the end, all of this Tweeting is just doing him even more harm.  Even if he is found to be innocent of all collusion charges, he most certainly will be guilty of obstruction of justice -- and his continuous stream of Tweets in which he attempts to intimidate his investigators will be part of the evidence against him.

As Lindsay Graham pointed out to Trump, "You may be the first president in history to go down because you can’t stop inappropriately talking about an investigation that, if you just were quiet, would clear you."

Back to Local H for a moment -- Trump, "you know it's so pathetic, and you don't." You just don't stop. And you don't accept that this really is a real investigation. And you really will be going down for your crimes this time. I emphasize this time, because this isn't your first foray into criminal activities, but it's the first time you're going to face a real punishment for them.

"And you learn to accept it" -- Local H. Yes, Local H has a point there. The GOP is accepting that Trump really is potentially guilty, but aside from a few minor steps in sanctioning Russia, they have yet to call Trump out. They'd rather use him to pass as much extreme legislation as possible. We learned as much from waste-of-a-meat-suit, Mark Halperin, this week:
“Senator, is Bob Mueller is man of integrity?” MSNBC’s Mark Halperin asked Thune during an appearance on “Morning Joe” Thursday, referring to the special counsel in charge of the investigation. “And has he done anything so far in the conduct of the investigation that leads you to believe he is conducting a witch hunt?”
“No, he is a man of integrity, Mark, and he needs to be able to do his work,” Thune replied. “And I think it’s better for all of us if that work continues. It’s — obviously he is going to get to the bottom and he is going to find the facts, and I think that’s his role. And I think we ought to let him continue to do that and I assume at some point there will be an end to all this. He’ll have done his investigation and there will be whatever findings there are.”
“But I think for now we ought to proceed on our agenda,” he continued. “We ought to try and reform health care, and reform the tax code, and do an infrastructure bill and focus on jobs and the economy for the American people knowing full well that that investigation is going to be ongoing.”
As Jason put it,  the GOP seems very willing to be an accomplice to treason if it means they have another day to pass their radical agenda.

Catch you on the flip side.
