Will He Or Won’t He?

So now the big deal in the press is President-elect Trump stating that he’s not going to prosecute Felonia von Pantsuit after all, which stands in rather remarkable contrast to his campaign statement where he promised to appoint a special prosecutor to look into her felonious behavior, no doubt about it.

To say that we’re disappointed would be an understatement of quite some magnitude.

On the other hand, we’re not quite ready yet to jump the gun and go all ballistic as some are. Trump is a wily old fox, and we’ve been wrong about him in the past enough that we’ll wait and see for now.

Yes, it could very well be that he’s already started the very usual “lie on the campaign trail to get the chumps to vote for me, then flip ‘em the bird once I’m in office”, it’s not like we haven’t seen it before with, like, every single fucking candidate of the GOPe.

Still better than Hitlary, though.

There are other possibilities, though, but they’re as much speculation as are the cocksure assertions of #NeverTrumpers that this is incontrovertible evidence that they were right all along (which, coincidentally, would be the very first time they were right about anything, so we guess they’re due), and worthy of about as much attention.

All we’ll say for now is this: Let’s say you were the President-elect and you really, really wanted to make life truly unpleasant for an ally of the current lame duck President once you were sworn in. What would you do? We can tell you what the number one item on our personal “things we wouldn’t do” list would be, and that would be “announcing before we’re sworn in that we’re going to do it so the lame duck can pre-emptively pardon the hag.”

If we were a President-elect who absolutely wouldn’t go for the throat after the swearing-in ceremony, yet didn’t want to be called a lying liar breaking his promises, we’d absolutely announce our intent to prosecute loud and proud while the lame duck was still in office. It would guarantee a pardon, and we’d then be free of the hassle while, at the same time, give us the perfect excuse. “Nothing we can do. He pardoned the bitch!”

Again, that’s all speculation on our part, so take it for what it is and nothing more.

We’ll see.

Hitlary is still not president and will now never be.

We’ll take that.

Thatisall.

    You make excellent points.
    Fortunately for me Trump can do nothing to disappoint me. I expect nothing good from him, there is only the faint hope he won’t completely fuck over my beloved country. Which is the best any politician gets from me. And YES he IS a politician! He got elected president didn’t he?
    Killery couldn’t have disappointed me either, I expected the destruction of the country to be every bit her agenda as it was Obummers.

    Rush said today that he thinks (maybe hopes) that Trump is holding back. He hasn’t definitively said there will be no prosecution; he may be keeping things ambiguous so that pResident Zero won’t be tempted to pardon the harpy before he’s homeless. Once Zero’s out, assuming no pardon, Trump can throw the book at her.

    From the Golden EIB Microphone to God’s ears, sez I.

    I really must keep your eye on the prize. His enemy is not merely the Clintons. It’s the media. The media is all worried about the Clintons, and to a lesser extent Obama, but really he is after the media for their lies. He will win, too.

    Speaking of which, I found this quote, again.

    As Vivek Chibber, a sociologist at New York University, tells me, “The media is responsible not just for hyping Clinton over Sanders, but also for bringing Trump up in a way that only hyped him even more—lampooning and dismissing him instead of taking seriously the way in which he was speaking to disaffected voters.”

    Regardless of the thuggish, misguided and inflammatory reaction of Trump supporters to media bias that has encouraged the donning of T-shirts reading “Tree. Rope. Journalist. (Some assembly required),” it’s not hard to empathize with their growing scorn for the media elite.

    I get a chubby every time I see it. Bartender, another Sam Adams! Nothing offsets GlowBull Worming like a cold Sam Adams.

    You are, of course, right.

    In the grand scheme of things, Felonia is small fry, a passing fad and, at this point, wholly irrelevant (except perhaps as an example to others).

    For this shift to have lasting power beyond this Presidency, the monolithic DNCMedia, the Lügenpresse to use the original German, has to be destroyed and replaced by something else. If he can accomplish that, we’ll owe him more than we can ever repay.

    Oh, and the T-shirt! The glorious T-shirt indeed! Funny enough, while you were writing your comment, I was writing a post where it comes up again in passing. Great, inebriated minds think alike ;)

    Consider his words, Trump said HE wasn’t interested. He didn’t say anything about Attorney General Sessions now, did he? After all, it isn’t the President who decides who is investigated.

    Now what happens once he’s sworn in and his nominee’s have been confirmed?

    I think it sufficient, for now, The Hag is marginalized and not in any position of power to do further damage. Her gravy train, i.e., the Clinton Foundation, is drying up, too. The Donald has a lot bigger fish to fry.
