When has the US Voter and Non-voter handed the rest of us an international embarrassment and neo-political danger?
Trump's number one former General and "Friend" of Putin Mike Flynn tendered a (forced) resignation last night. The resignation should be no surprise. I am seeing and hearing reports DIA officials issued a report to both President Obama and then-President Elect Trump regarding the prospect of Flynn having compromised himself via interaction with a Russia political official.
Yesterday Trump's number two "presstitute" responded to MSNBC's Steve Kornacki with a comment about Flynn's continued high standing with Trump. Within hours Flynn's status in the White House fluctuated and changed like an out-of-control roller coaster. The ride finally landed with the Obama hater and Hillary Clinton-hating former general ousted via Trump. "You're Fired" via the hand in your resignation route.
We offer an MSNBC broadcast segment from early this morning. CAUTION: the segment contains embarrassing backtracking and waffling.
How could a competent president or for that matter a capable professional person totally ignore such reports? Take it to another level. How could a corporate CEO so ignore reports of a bad apple in the basket? Since we can assume Trump isn't simply stupid, we should assume he ignored the reports for personal gain (and possible reward to Flynn). Of course, we could allow ourselves to lean really deep and consider Trump is so involved with a love of Russia and equally affinity for Putin, he may have been actively involved in Flynn's phone conservation with the Putin deputy.
As the story unfolded last night on MSNBC and CNN both flooded their broadcast with guest after guest for opinion and perspective. Of more importance consider the following video and the level of hypocrisy inherent in Trump/Flynn. LOCK HER UP?
Well, it appears John McCain is surely not going to simply facilitate sweeping Trump and Flynn's Russian interludes under a rug.
We will revisit this issue throughout the day, of course.
What Did He Know And When Did He Know It?
