Trump is between a rock and a hard place.

This is a short political note:

If you’ve been watching the news you’ll agree with me that President Trump is between a rock and a hard place. During the presidential campaign last year I shared my view with many of you that he would become the most inept and inappropriate person to ever serve in the White House. Unfortunately, my prediction was right on.

  • He is only in his 4th month in office and the word “impeachment” is beginning to swirl in the air.
  • And, a special attorney has already been named to investigate him (see his photo).
  • And, for starters, the investigation is about his connections with the Russians and those of the people working for him.
  • And, it seems that the entanglements of Trump’s people with our sworn enemies are only beginning to come to the surface.

Keep an eye on the newspapers!

P.S. Robert Mueller, the Special Counsel appointed to investigate Mr. Trump (see the photo), represents in my mind the kind of dedicated official that our government relies on to do its job, despite the ineptitude of the politicians at the top, in a crisis and when there is none. I worked for the feds and I came to know folks like him. The ones I knew impressed me a lot because they always tried to do their job right. It’s one of the reasons why I don’t “buy” the Republican chant that raises suspicion on our government. I’m glad people like him are there and I hope the wrong-headed incapacity of Trump’s confederates doesn’t scare them away.

  1. This unfolding political drama with Trump is likely to develop very dangerously. Trump—it seems to me—is unlikely to fold (resign) and this Congress and perhaps the next lacks the political will to remove by impeachment. (hard to see how 218 votes in the House let alone 67 votes in the U.S. Senate can be acquired in the foreseeable future). I think the fact that Trump has surrounded himself with either serving (McMaster at National Security Council) and just retired Army & Marine Corps Generals (Mattis at Defense Dept. & Kelly at Homeland Security) in key national security positions is alarming. Its particularly alarming in light of Trump’s admiration for dictators (Putin, Assisi, Duerterte, & Erdogan etc.,) and Trumps clear disdain for law, precedent, and protocol. I think we should expect an eventual showdown between him and the legislative & judicial branch—-that will be resolved by force and intimidation rather than law and normal political processes.
