Wow, things are getting crazy(er).
Over the weekend, President Trump accused former President Obama of tapping his phones during the election – a claim the FBI says is untrue (contradicting a sitting President) while Trump twitters away on an epic weekend rant covering the “cover up” as well as dissing Arnold Schwarzenegger and trying to remember “Who was it that secretly said to Russian President 'Tell Vladimir that after the election I'll have more flexibility?” Yes, he tweeted that. Geeze, Donald, use you inside voice when discussing possible acts of treason!
Yes, we are discussing politics again because the President of the United States is making public accusations not just of Obama but the Intelligence Community of committing a Constitutional Crime and he's calling for Congress to investigate the matter – even though there is not one shred of evidence that such a thing ever happened. These are the kind of things that should be kept on the QT in Washington – even if they are true.
By not keeping our dirty laundry secret (if there is any dirty laundry and, if not, then the President is a paranoid maniac – so we can't win) we make America appear weak and tumultuous and that causes MASSIVE damage on the International Stage. What do we do when we see countries in political turmoil? We pull our investments, we stop lending them money, we hesitate to make deals with them until things calm down. Bond rates soar, credit ratings crash and governments can topple over matters like these and you have how much of your money invested in America?
In these days of evil Presidents
Working for the clampdown
But lately one or two has fully paid their due
For working for the clampdown
Kick over the wall 'cause government's to fall
How can you refuse it?
Let fury have the hour, anger can
