Whereas the funniest a part of the Nunes announcement is how blatantly it is meant to distract from a information cycle by which the sitting president of the USA was caught on tape trying to undermine U.S. elections, we will not overlook that Trump is now merely performing as a mob boss. He is handing out Medals of Freedom to co-conspirators in his previous crimes to deflect from the invention of his new crimes.
However that mentioned, it is humorous and we’re allowed to chuckle—properly, apart from earlier Medal of Freedom winners who, other than the skunkish Rush Limbaugh, could also be considering melting down their very own awards relatively than share honors with the anti-American and corrupt Nunes and Jordan. Trump actually responded to the publicity of a brand new crime with the tough equal of knighting those who helped cover proof of the final ones.
And he thinks that is going to work.
And it was all achieved in such a rush that there wasn’t even time to arrange a White Home room to do it in, so the Devin Nunes Award Ceremony goes to occur “behind closed doorways.” The place Trump’s handlers will not have to fret about Trump ranting on for an hour with too-specific reward of Nunes’ efforts on his behalf, as he arms a literal medal to a co-conspirator.
Trump might by no means survive as a mob boss. He is simply too simpleminded; the person broadcasts his intent with each transfer. Asserting a brand new award for many who helped you stonewall a felony investigation, inside hours of the discharge of proof that may nearly definitely end in a brand new felony investigation?
