thank you for your service, Omarosa

Eighty-three.

Thant’s how many days are left until the mid-term elections, and Trump is choosing to spend them assuring a curious nation that a producer of The Apprentice told him that no tape of The Donald spouting racial slurs on the set exists.  Why say it that way instead of “I never said such words”?  To be fair, Trump has categorically denied ever saying them, recently asserting that no such words have ever been in his vocabulary.

That seems much more feasible a defense because his vocabulary is so limited.  But even if that tape surfaces, it’s not going to move any political needles.  It would just be a cherry on the bottom of a lengthy trail of evidence of his bigotry.  The Central Park Five and other distant transgressions aside, just this month Trump has called Don Lemon and Lebron James dumb and renewed his attacks on NFL players protesting police brutality.

You can’t really blame him for attacking Lebron.  James had the nerve to open a school for at-risk kids.  Uppity.

As Michael Avenatti struggles for headlines these days, Omarosa has taken up the cause.  She may be an even better match for Donny J.  They’re cut from the same bolt of faulty fabric.  Both are immeasurably insecure, so any airtime is –well — oxygen to them.  Neither has any discernible scruples.

So they parse and parse and parse as climate change has California in flames.  It’s not that Trump would do anything about a solid blue state anyway, but his obsession with Omarosa also keeps him from doing little else as he eyes the Mueller probe and waits for a shoe factory to drop.

Omarosa’s ego is sturdy enough to feed this story for weeks.  Maybe we’ll still be hearing about it in 84 days.

    Did you read that Zinke EPA guy toured the fires in Calif and said it was the fault of the environmentalists?

      I had not heard that. I bet Zinke neglected to mention that last year’s Tubbs fire started because PG&E neglected to clear enough brush away from its power lines. So: environmentalists 1, capitalists 1.

    Ditto Judith….with the addition that Zinke called them the “Radical environmentalits”
    Now that’s a catchy phrase….likely one of the their talking points as we move closer
    to eJection day.

      We can smell the stench of desperation from the Trumpers up here in B.C. Donny may take the security clearance from other members of the Intelligence Community one by one to counter bad news on a daily basis. Let’s see, Omarosa supposedly has 200 more tapes, so . . . carry the three, multiply by your mother’s maiden name . . . yeah, she should have enough to get us through the mid-terms.

    I should clarify that it was not Mussolini watching a movie but me watching a movie with a newsreel of Mussolini giving a speech on a balcony. Whew!

    I have no idea what Mussolini or the T-word look like when they are watching movies, But I bet that would scare me too!
