General Mattis last night at NY’s hallowed the Al Smith dinner was Admiral McRaven with laughter. https://t.co/Rrtzt2QDqA via @YouTube— Peggy Noonan (@Peggynoonannyc) October 18, 2019
I usually find this stuff vaguely amusing and take it with a grain of salt, but for whatever reason, this one broke the camel's back. It's exhausting. Trump has been a pretty good president and I agree with about 85% of what he does, but can we please just have a break from the schoolyard taunting?
Trump's not even the worst. I guess our elected representatives are trying a new angle of impeachment. What is this, the seventh one they've rolled out or something? Each one is more stupid than the last to the point where I can't even name the high crime or misdemeanor Trump is supposed to have committed. It's some kind of phone call to the Ukraine, isn't it? A phone call? Really?
Meanwhile, Hunter Biden was clearly given massive bribes from powerful Ukrainians aimed at his dad who was vice president and eager to take those bribes. Like that's not immediately obvious to everyone.
So we talk about impeaching a president for making a phone call asking for an investigation of blatant corruption while that same president brags that he's a better general than his generals. Which recalls Obama saying he was a better X than his experts at X. Which didn't get wide reportage because Obama.
These days, the national debt is out of control, inner city culture is a dumpster fire, opioid addiction and suicide rates are rising, the homeless in our cities are increasingly made up of hopelessly brain-fried drug addicts and our universities are teaching our children that you can choose your gender. What do we get? Impeachment spasms and 3rd grade tweets.
These people are the worst.
