Our president continues to make news at the most unexpected times.
Late Tuesday afternoon past, it was the firing of FBI director James Comey. It was a move Democrats would have supported several months ago, but suddenly don’t support now.
Then there was that curious sentence out of Trump’s letter about Comey telling Trump three different times the President was clear of any wrongdoing. Of what, pray tell? The whole Russian thing, or something else?
Oh by the way, I no longer think the Russian thing is a bunch of bull. There actually might be something there. I was watching one of Keith Olbermann’s GQ pieces, and a recent piece spoke of this golf columnist who played with Donald and Eric Trump on the Trump golf course in Charlotte in 2014.
The columnist and author, James Dodson, got curious about how Trump could afford to build courses six years removed from the economic upheaval of 2008. Long story short, Eric tells Dodson that the Russians were funding his father to build these courses. The younger Trump has since denied saying that, calling the report a bunch of garbage.
I’m just saying that it’s been my experience in life that the truth usually comes from unexpected places. Why would a golf columnist lie at the expense of his career about a Republican president? Doesn’t make sense.
So, maybe it’s true. If so, I’ve been badly duped, but at least I’m not alone in that.
