Swing And A Miss

Trump’s star on the Walk of Fame, littered with resistance stickers.

It was said over the weekend that over 20,000,000 people took time out of their late morning and early afternoon routines to watch the James Comey hearings held by the Senate on Thursday.

Personally, I thought it was a big time swing and a miss, no matter what sauce the media has left over to cook with. You can’t have your guy with the “squeaky clean image” in Mr. Comey with his thumb on the scale. When he admitted he gave a memo to a buddy to leak to the media to Susan Collins of Maine, that’s exactly what happened.

I said a couple of weeks ago that if President Trump was going to be impeached, it’s more likely to occur later on in his presidency than in the here and now. He got help from Russia to build some golf courses, and that’s pretty much a fact to Eric Trump’s admission. That may or may not mean that he (President Trump) got help with his election. I still think it’s more likely the President gets in trouble over something that has yet to happen, or is in the process of happening, but I don’t think we’re there yet.

Then again, his boasts about having tapes and or recordings of Comey, that could get him into trouble. If there were never any tapes, how does he prove that? In other words, how can you prove something you say exists never existed?

In time, I can’t see him not messing up, but we’re just not there yet.


From Russia With Golf

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.
