Like A Cat Covering Shit.

By now, most people are aware that the Tiny Tyrant divulged classified information to the visiting Russians, and Mr. Tweet has had a whirlwind of justifications over it all, he can do whatever the fuck he wants because president! Yeah. The whole mess, and the tweets, are detailed at Think Progress, along with the standard problems in what passes for thought in Trump. The Fucking Idiot not only undercut all his aides by admitting to leaking all over the place, he’s been bragging about it, even to the point of referring to said leakage as humanitarian. Trump wouldn’t know humanitarian if it jumped up and gnawed his face off.  Why on earth anyone would be surprised by this, I don’t know. It’s all too standard behaviour on the Tiny Tyrant’s part. Nathan also has a good piece on the leaking of classified material.

Of more concern, I would say, is the journalistic rush to report that rethuglicans are pulling away from the wannabe dictator now, but unfortunately, that is not so, and this is no time to become complacent, and think they are going to kick his plush arse to the curb.

“Questions and concerns” do not mean jack shit when it comes to rethuglicans. It’s a handy, shopworn phrase tossed out to make them sound like they have the same concerns as all us peons, but they don’t. They are interested in two things: covering their asses, and more importantly, protecting their wallet and the various things which feed it. Think Progress has a breakdown of the actual sentiment right now.

And, Politico reports on the shambolic mess that is Trump House, where people are running about like chickens with heads cut off, not having the slightest idea of what is going to happen. Also per usual, Trump is like a cat jumping in a box, furiously digging in an attempt to cover up stinking shit, spraying sand and shit particles all over the place. There will be a shake up! There will be a reorganization! Oh hey, we have a trip coming up, and everyone will forget about Comey and leakage, you betcha!

    What is “humanitarian leakage”? I don’t even fucking get it. I don’t even want to know. Wow. Screw you, Republicans and all who voted Republican. Just screw you.

    These are Trump’s Tweets:

    As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining….

    …to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.

    See? Magically humanitarian. There isn’t enough fuck or eyeroll.

    A:rueksdjfhsgiluerhleaglkjadhf. His supporters will be so all over that. I’m going to go be sick for a while, and kick the printer (it needs it anyway).

    I bet he’s glad Comey’s not around. Because Comey’d see this leak of classified information and open another investigation in to Clinton’s emails.

    Meanwhile, chants of “lock him up! lock him up!” are conspicuously not coming from the Trump supporters who were so concerned with handling classified material.

    By the way: this is close to a manufactroversy. Sure, Trump’s a dipshit, but the information he probably disclosed is probably not that big a deal. I strongly suspect that nobody in the intelligence community gives Trump the classified time of day, any more. Now, they certainly won’t. My guess is that what happened (which is pretty damn stupid!) is that the Russians said something about Syria -- perhaps it went like:
    K: “Mr President, we did not appreciate you bombing the air base, but we do appreciate the advance warning. It’s good to avoid mistakes. We will also be careful to give advance warning if we decide to strike your secret air base in Syria.”
    T: “It’s yuge! How did you know about that? You guys are the smartest! I’m smart too! Did Hillary tell you about that?!”
    K: “Mr President, your administration leaks like a sieve.”
    T: “We know who one of the leakers is and we’ve been feeding him bullshit. We’re super smart! It’s the best bullshit!”
    [that’s it, right there]
    K: “Mr President, we already know Spicer is on a diet of bullshit.”
    T: “OMG WTF!?”

    Dunno, it seems a bit more than that, what with the ally possibly refusing to share future intelligence on the basis of this leak.

    I can see why going for the ‘Trump is so stupid his entire administration knows it’ idea can seem comforting (they can’t all be incompetent, right?), but I’m pretty sure they’re all (or close to all) incompetent. Nobody’s going to save this situation. There’s nobody on the inside who can actually salvage anything out of this administration, not even save face of any kind. Nobody’s capable, nobody can help. This is as bad as it is. It’s that bad.

    I think it’s important to remember that Trump locked the U.S. Press out of the leakage meeting, and was furious when he found out Russian media published photos, disclosing the full participants, which Trump did not want out.

  7. rq says

    Yeah, that sounds more like an attempt at clandestine information trading -- you know, treating the presidency like it’s a business where you have backroom meetings and deals and an industrial secret might get you… well, apparently nothing but exposure at this point. I don’t know. It seems so completely surreal.

    “Shambolic”? What a lovely word…

    Angry Cheeto’s troubled, in his Cheeto brain
    The Cheeto’s house is shambolic
    Cheeto’s surgically incapable of shame
    The Cheeto’s house is shambolic

    This is the downside to the administration’s incompetence. It’s great when he’s trying to ban Muslims and take away my health insurance, but, as was pointed out before, eventually there will be a crisis, and the incompetence will hurt. Trump managed to screw this one up without there even being a crisis.

    I shudder to think of what will happen during some kind of real national crisis. Lots of people will die. Fucking Trump voters. Assholes, every last one of them.
