For a second time Donald Trump has been M-peached. In the last few hours of his presidency has he been M-peared? We’ll see who he pardons.
Speaking of fruit, there are those who say that the attack on the Capitol has made us look like a banana republic. Maybe so. But I think it makes us look more like fruitcake—chock full of nuts.
Speaking of nuts, pouty Trump has declined to attend Biden’s inauguration next week. Instead, rumor has it, he wants a military send-off at Andrews AFB complete with marching bands, red carpets, and 21- gun salutes. Fitting for a tin horn dictator of a banana republic. He’ll fly to Mara Largo with some millions in the bank that his fans have donated since the election, which he still contends was stolen. He’ll need it to pay off lawyers as the walls begin to close in. Rumor also has it that he has a billion in outstanding debt that is coming due soon. Good luck.
Regarding impeachment, looks like the senate trial will not start until after Biden is inaugurated and Trump is out of office. Biden thinks the senate can walk and chew gum at the same time. We’ll see. There’s a lot of things that have to be done aside from convicting The Donald. For example, vaccine distribution, economic stimulus, and confirming his appointees for starters. With the donkeys in control of both houses of congress and the executive branch you would think that some things would get done. But the donkey control of the senate is razor thin, and there are more fruitcakes in both branches to upset the apple cart. OK, so much for the fruit references.
In the meantime, we are all hunkered down trying to avoid getting the virus. Got an email from my health provider. Good news: at my age I am eligible for a shot. Bad news: Supplies are limited and likely will not be enough to get to me until February. In the meantime, hang in there, practice good hygiene, and they’ll get back to me. We are all waiting.
